Preparedness Planning

Many times, as preppers, we tend to focus on long-term food storage, bug out bags and survival equipment, and all thestuff associated with prepping- which is important- but we don’t always spend as much time and consideration into planning and creating multiple contingency plans for whatever situation may occur. All the canned food and stockpiled ammo in the world will do very little good without a plan on what to do when they become essential to survival. Hope for the Best, Prepare for the Worst This may seem elementary in the extreme (of course...

5 Regrets Of The Dying

After many years of feeling unfulfilled at her job, Bronnie Ware set out to find something that resonated with her soul. She ended up in palliative care where she spent many years helping those who were dying. Some time later, she compiled a list of the 5 most common regrets expressed by the people she cared for. The list she collected gained huge popularity, and we are sharing it with you here today because it’s something all of us should keep in mind. Even though it can be hard to think about, this stuff is really important for your happiness...

More Than 100 Aftershocks Rattle California

LOS ANGELES — More than 100 aftershocks continued to rattle Southern California on Saturday after a stronger earthquake the night before displaced dozens of residents.

Urban Survival Tin

You can never be too prepared. But you can have gear that won’t help you for the situation you are in. I know this may sound elementary, but you would take hiking gear on a hike, and hunting gear on a hunt. So why should one ultra-compact kit be the end all for any situation? It can’t. This is why we have specific items that are appropriate for specific situations. I want to use the idea of a small survival tin for example. While there are some that contain fishing line, a compass, paracord, etc., this will be great for being stuck out...

NASA Predicts The End Of Western Civilization

Loving life? Well, lap it up because the days of driving around in comfy cars, feasting on fancy food and enjoying an air conditioner-cooled existence could be numbered. With rising population, depleting natural resources and stretching social divide, civilization could be facing collapse within the next few decades, according to a scientific study funded by NASA. And if you think this is a load of scaremongering, it’s happened before. Remember the Roman Empire? In the report conducted by applied mathematician Safa Motesharri, his “Human And...

Basics Of Using A Map Compass

Another skill we should discuss (which I have neglected to) is navigation. What good is going anywhere and not knowing your way around the land? Could you find yourself in a situation where you have gotten turned around and you are completely lost? Absolutely! This happens quite often and I know you don’t want to become a statistic. So let’s take a look at what you should have and know. First and foremost, a good basic map compass, such as the one here. Notice I said basic. If you do not have the experience with using one you may not...

Survival Fishing

Have you ever thought about what you would do if you were stranded out in the woods without food? Dumb question right? Well not really. You may not have access to your cool gear or “bat belt”, so if you only had minimal supplies on hand, how would you gather food?
