Getting prepared for the chaos that is coming to America in the years ahead is not that complicated. Help is out there – if you know where to look. And it doesn’t […]
Our way of life is far more vulnerable than most people would ever dare to imagine. A single major catastrophe could fundamentally alter all of our lives at any moment. But since […]
For Saudi Arabia, its decision last week not to cut oil production seems to have been an attempt to protect market share. But for Venezuela, that decision may mean “game over” for […]
It’s been an expensive year to eat beef, and 2015 doesn’t look any cheaper. The U.S.
Things are about to get real in Ferguson, Missouri, regardless of the decision of the Grand Jury in the Michael Brown case. So real, in fact, that the governor of Missouri has already declared a State of Emergency and called in the National Guard. So real, in fact, that at least some of the local cops believe citizens need to arm themselves, because they know they won’t be able to protect them from the chaos that is sure to ensue.
It’s hard not to get dispirited when you look at how far downhill this great country has gone. We are seeing not just the unraveling of societal fabric, but the very shredding of it, much like a flag in a hurricane. The family unit is no longer, the God given institution of marriage has been redefined by godless judges, removing the very necessary cornerstone of a civil society.
A while back, I wrote an article called “30 Signs That You’re One of Those Crazy Preppers.” Lots of readers got into the spirit of things, since it was pretty darned relatable. We all know these are actually signs of sanity, but we’re used to being misunderstood by the unprepared and sometimes it’s fun to have a good laugh about their misconceptions of what we actually do.
The homes of many rich, famous people have a secret hidden within them. Somewhere, in the depths of the home, is a secure room to which the residents can retreat in the event of a home invasion or violent intruder. A safe room was carved into the original house plan, and many of these are state of the art.
Jason Charles knows the exact moment he will lead his wife and five kids out of their Harlem home, pile into a car, and take off for the wilderness. It will be not long after Ebola reaches the population of New York City, hospitals overflow, and looting begins—when the first riots break out on the streets of Manhattan. “Right now it isn’t bad, but if the first case happens in New York, you start hearing about hundreds or thousands of people getting sick and it shotguns through the city, then you want to start getting your plan together to leave,” says the 37-year-old fireman and dedicated prepper.
A visit to ‘prepper camp’ – a four-day session on surviving super viruses, natural disasters, socioeconomic collapse, world war, and more
A shot rings out in the Orchard Lake Campground. The crack ricochets off of evergreens and elms and oaks. No one hits the ground, screams, or ducks for cover.
If you’ve been paying attention to the news lately, you may be feeling on edge. You may feel as though time is running out for you to get your preparedness supplies in order. You may be new to prepping, and feeling like there’s too much to accomplish.
Did you ever think about dipping your big toe into the waters of “prepping” but it just all sounded so “out there” that you weren’t quite sure it was something you wanted to be involved in? Then this is the guide for you. Maybe it made sense in principle, but then you watched that guy and his wife filter and drink their own pee on Doomsday Preppers and you said, “Oh, heck no.
Most of the time, no one actually expects the S to HTF on that particular day. Most folks don’t go through their lives expecting one specific event to occur, and then have it unfold according to a predetermined script. Two weeks ago, I didn’t get up in the morning expecting some jerk to get mad at his girlfriend, light a tree in her yard on fire, and set off a 100,000 acre forest fire.
(YT) Where would be the place in the United States to be in the event of an economic collapse? What if you had to grow some of your own food to feed your family? What if utilities failed provide water, natural gas or electricity?
When I was a young cop, I watched a pilot at our local air show fly his plane right into the ground. I realized instantly what had happened and turned to see the entire emergency crew, many of them veterans, just standing there, frozen in disbelief. I yelled at them, “Get over there, he’s crashed” and then immediately forgot where I had parked my patrol car.
Prepping can sometimes cost a lot of money and a lot of you really like when I post about gear (even though you really should be spending your time and money on skills more than stuff). Because my EDC kit (every day carry) – the cheap way article was so popular, I thought maybe you’d appreciate a quick article about some inexpensive things you can get under $10 that are worth more than $10 – and that you could actually find useful. This is an entirely different idea from the 9 freakin’ awesome ideas for your bug out bag article that I wrote previously, which was intended to get you to think outside the box about what you carry.
