Finding Peace In Chaos

If you consider yourself a prepper, I am sure you are in a constant state of worry whether you want to admit it or not. For some people, just the thought of preparing for a disaster or catastrophe creates stress. The bad part is that nothing has even happened yet and you may be stressed out. So how will you cope if and when something happens?

Great Ways to Carry Emergency Cash

As part of my Every Day Carry (EDC) I always like to keep enough cash on had to at least buy an entire tank of gas.  When I travel on business I like to have at least $1,000 in cash with me at all times.  Carrying cash is always a challenge because, if lost, can’t be replaced like a credit card.  This is why it is important to spread your cash around and never keep in all in one place (like your wallet).

The Original Inhabitants Of This Land

The Internet is filled with resources which discuss survival and preparedness.

The conversation went very well and the information many of the folks provided was very helpful. While there are no right or wrong answers, it made me...

Movie Review: The Road

I know this movie The Road came out in 2009, but I just watched it. I didn’t realize what it was until someone recommended it to me. Now, this is all my opinion and interpretation of the movie and I don’t claim to be a movie expert. So here is what I thought. I cannot say if I liked it or not. The start of the movie gave me an idea of what might have happened to cause the catastrophe. What do I think happened? Either a super volcanic eruption or a meteor/asteroid hit the earth. I don’t think it was nuclear as it appears this...
