What I’m telling you is that a prepper homestead has to be created well before a disaster strikes. You have to learn many of these things from experience.

What’s worse, the fundamental problems that led to the Great Recession were never really solved. Wall Street has managed to kick the can down the road, but they are rapidly running out of road. All this is the say that an economic collapse is inevitable. To prepare for it, why not learn from someone who has been through one himself?
Ammo stockpile is a vital and critical component of any SHTF plan. If you don’t stockpile ammunition, your firearms will be completely useless. Having no ammo, or at least having very limited ammo, would mean that your ability to defend yourself, your home, and your family against the inevitable raiders and mobs is incredibly limited.
The odds are likely that you will face some major disasters at some point in your life. Maybe it will be a wildfire, or an earthquake, or an economic collapse, or–God forbid–World War III. Which one do you think it will be?
One of the best ways to ensure you have food for the long-term is to build a survival seed bank. Take a closer look at what survival seed banks are. Food, water, and shelter are the three essential requirements for survival after an apocalyptic disaster. Of the three, though, it is food that will be the most difficult to acquire.
These are the basics to get the “creative juices” flowing in your mind. Of course there are many more items that could be listed; however, these are basics and not intended to be comprehensive. The best time to start on them is now.
The Spanish Flu (also known as the 1918 flu pandemic) spread across the globe, infecting 500 million people and causing the deaths of 50 million. Imagine the catastrophic numbers in today’s time if a similar flu hit – and how quickly it would spread from the ease in transportation modern society allows.
Hurricane Florence Threatens Georgia, the Carolinas, Virginia, DC, Maryland, and Delaware. Get prepped, because if Florence hits, the storm will rival last year’s Harvey, Irma, and Maria. And the way our luck has been going with disasters lately, I wouldn’t be one bit surprised if it does make landfall.
Hurricane Lane is packing 155 mph sustained winds, with gusts clocked at 185 mpg and is expected to sweep the southern shores of all the major Hawaiian Islands. It will be a Category 3 storm as it starts it move across the southern parts of the six (6) major islands before it moves off to the west/northwest.
Blueberries have already been found to cause programmed cell death within in the significantly more virulent triple negative breast cancer cell lines and an accumulating body of research reveals that the blueberry phytocompound resveratrol has the ability to kill dozens of lethal cancer types
A newly published study comparing people living close (within 80 meters) and far (over 300 meters) from a cellular antennas found that the people living closer to the cellular antennas had statistically significant effects- increases in blood damage considered biomarkers predictive of cancer.
I was talking a few days ago with a friend about the issue of friends and family when SHTF. I realized that some 15 years ago if something serious happened, some event that needed a strong group of bonded people in order to overcome that event (riots, serious weather event, disruption of law and order, war…)
Earth Changes Accelerate: What Is Causing These Record Heatwaves, Massive “Firenadoes”, Giant Dust S
Something truly dramatic appears to be happening to the globe, and it isn’t just because the amount of carbon dioxide in the air suddenly reached some sort of magical “tipping point”. But without a doubt, temperatures are getting warmer.
If there is a large earthquake, however, the aftershock sequence will produce many more earthquakes of all magnitudes for many months. Scientists have not found a way to predict earthquakes and earthquakes have a nasty habit of occurring where a lot of people are living.
The answer to this question is simple – Mother Nature has her own secrets. There are many who fear that humans won’t be able to survive without the conveniences of modern medicine. Granted, we won’t be able to save life on the scale that we can now, but there are natural options.
Prepping isn’t all about wiling away your hours in a bunker, reloading ammo. It’s about the everyday things we do and the differences in our mindsets from non-preppers, and these are things that only real preppers will understand.
Most preppers rightfully believe that the cities would be the most dangerous places to be if society collapsed. Rural areas are generally safer, have less burdensome governance, and provide the opportunity to gain some degree of self-sufficiency.
If an all-out war erupts, it will be like nothing the Earth has seen before. All of our “progress” means that each side now has the weapons at their disposal to destroy their enemy many times over. Because of this, we can’t as readily look back in history to learn how to survive World War 3.
If you find yourself in a survival situation and realize it’s time to get your family on the road to safety, most of us are going to hope we can rely on our vehicle. You can carry more stuff, further, faster and a vehicle affords you a little more protection. However, one of the very real risks we face when we are trying to make our escape is that the way will be blocked with too many other cars.
Your list of home remedies is about to get even more interesting and spicier. Although these natural herbs are medical resources have been used hundreds of years, doctors and scientists are now recommending them to be used for healing purposes. These natural medical resources can be easily substituted as traditional methods of medication.
Gardening is something we have been doing for the last five years and really enjoying it. A third raised garden is planned in the spring and a lot of five gallon buckets are getting buried in that one.
Millions die every year from cancer. Millions more from heart disease. But a solid body of research indicates that consuming pomegranate could save your life and may be the ideal way to protect yourself against the top two killers in the postmodern age.
There have been 257 earthquakes over magnitude 5 and many more very close to this number. Just to put this into perspective on average there is an estimated 3.6 earthquakes of a magnitude of 5-5.9 a day, in the last 9 days there have been an average of 24.8 nearly 7 times what is usual.
In the Winter season you always need to have a Winter bug in kit on you at all times you know you cannot easily get back to home base. You should always have a compass on you in SHTF as fog, rain, and snow can easily get you lost real fast even close to home base.
Whether your bugging out with a group or bugging out alone it is extremely important to have someone with some degree of medical knowledge and/or skill. If you’re bugging out with a group and you’ve got a plan in place, but no designated “medic”, you have a problem.
When non-preppers think about how to survive the end of the world, they usually think about hoarding supplies, finding a secure place to store them and hunkering down to wait it out. It’s a nice fairy-tale, but in the real world, when SHTF, true survivors have to know how to hit back.
