You may not have the knowledge or skillset yet to master a self-sufficient garden, that is not a reason to give up. Growing your own food doesn’t have to be about being totally self-sufficient, as that is going to have to come in time and with often several seasons of practice.

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?
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?
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.
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.
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.
Here are a few ways we can cut down on the labor and time of gardening and increase our yields, whether we’re just getting started with some pots or whether we’re ready to expand our production in times of crisis when survival food production has stopped.
Unfortunately for those who insist the earth is warming, the facts just simply don’t support that rhetoric. As it turns out, the Arctic sea ice is thicker than ever and the global temperature trend has not warmed for 19 years. This is likely the reason leftists intent on taxing in the name of global warming had to rename changes in earth’s climate to “climate change” from “global warming.”
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.

Survival fishing kits could be of any size and shape, and it would adapt readily to suit your particular needs.

Stacking functions is a quick term for the concept of planning things (elements) and areas (space) to perform the most services for us with the least input. It’s reusing things as many times as possible to get the most out of our time and energy, and letting the spaces themselves do some of the work for us.
Back in the pioneer days, their recipes were very simple. They didn’t have specialty grocery stores filled with hard-to-find ingredients or things that didn’t store well. They had pantry items and prepared everything from scratch.
The use of Monsanto’s Round-up herbicide has increased substantially over the last 40 years. Many researchers are starting to believe that increased use of glyphosate, the active ingredient in Round-up, correlates to the rise in many modern diseases.
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.
We all need water to survive and if you go without it for a while your health deteriorates. Go with water for more than a couple of days and you die. Water or lack of sufficient, clean drinking water, more than almost anything else (I will go into the other things later) will kill you.
Food poisoning is no joke. Unfortunately, many people are unaware of how fresh the food in their fridge and freezer are when they return home from a long trip or vacation. If the power went out for a day or two (sometimes a few hours will do the trick), meats and other temperamental products could defrost and go bad.
Budget gas, groceries, rent, savings, insurance, bus fare, fun. Whatever you need to pay for each paycheck, budget. Write how much you can spend, on each item and only spend that much. Seriously. For people like me the most important things are going to be rent, and gas/transportation to make my next check.
It can be frustrating to plant a garden and watch it fail. It can be mean life and death when it is the food your family is counting on for survival. Yet crop failures happens, to big growers and small farmers and backyard enthusiasts. There are methods that involve earth works, terra-forming or terra-sculpting…
So, how did fluoride originally get added to our drinking water? Believe it or not, to get rid of an industrial waste product! Bauxite, the ore in which aluminum is found, also contains dangerous fluoride, and what’s called “aluminum tailings” from mining operations was a big disposal problem looking for a rapid solution.
That magic moment when you go to wash your hands….and nothing comes out of the tap.
Late on Friday evening – you know, too late to reach the local repair guy – that was the scenario at our rented farm. Nary a drop was coming from our faucets. For the past couple of months, I had believed there was an impending issue with our well. However, it was one of those intermittent problems that was impossible to diagnose before it actually fell apart completely.
