Beginner Preparedness

I wanted to repost this from the old website. This may be helpful to some new visitors to the site. When I first started researching “survival and prepping” I was blown away by the amount of information out there on the web. However, I remember back to when I first started to prep I admit I was overwhelmed by it all. The first thing you read is you need a Bug Out Bag (B.O.B.)!!

It Is All In The Family Preparedness

Got your attention with the title, huh? We would like to do a series on family preparedness. There are so many different aspects on this topic so it would not make sense to cram it all into one article. You would get bored. We will cover some key topics and some “food for thought” as well. This will be from a lay person perspective and not try to use a bunch of expertise jargon as there is a place and time for that, but not here. In this series, we will cover three main topics: I. Family preparedness II. Preparedness and children III....

Long Term Food Storage

With all of the recent events in the U.S. such as the earthquakes, hurricanes, flooding, etc., people have become more aware of their lack of disaster preparedness.  While we mostly discuss everyday carry items, we must not turn a blind eye to preparation and survival.

Preppers: Which Type Are You?

The term Prepper, is defined through Wikipedia as; “A “survivalist” or “prepper” is an individual or group that prepares or makes preparations in advance of, or prior to, any change in normal circumstances or lifestyle without significant reliance on other persons or without substantial assistance from outside resources”. There is more to the definition, but I just wanted to give you a brief synopsis. It is my belief that there are different types of preppers out there and they cannot be thrown into one category....
