Europe is Dying

I never though it’s gonna go down like this. Europe is literally being raped by migrants and there’s STILL no talk about deportations. I’ve been fighting tooth and nail on my personal Facebook and on various websites who show the atrocities these guys make and I have to say the one thing those pro-immigration have in common is that they’re completely illogical.

There’s a veritable war happening on social media and on news sites these

The Best Bushcraft Axes

generic axe

by Megan

The survival knife may be the most talked about tool, but smart preppers know some tasks are better suited for a bushcraft axe or hatchet. First assess what kinds of tasks you will be doing most often and then decide the type of axe you need. The distinguishing factors between axes is primarily in handle length, and in the cutting ability of the blade.

An axe is made up of several major sections:

The Ultimate Winter Survival Guide

branch covered with snow

by Megan

“It’s a jungle out there” refers to not just a tropical jungle but a dense forest or even tough city streets. Winter brings cold temperatures, blowing winds, dangerous ice storms, blinding snow, and power outages. To survive whatever is ahead, you have to include the unexpected in cold winter weather. What do you do when “it’s winter out there” and you’re stuck in it?

You cannot prepare for all the possible things that

What are the Best Survival Flashlights?

emergency hand-crank flashlight

by contributing author

When you are preparing for a potential disaster, the type of flashlight you buy can make it or break it. Most people think all flashlights are equal. If it shines pretty bright and is fairly durable, it will get the job done in any situation. This way of thinking, however, is foolish and potentially deadly.

Specific types and brands of flashlights are better for unique situations and it’s necessary that you

EDC Keychains

keychain

by Karen

In order to truly be prepared for whatever might happen in this world you need to have tools on hand no matter where you are. You might have a way to provide illumination or start a fire in your bug-out bag (BOB), at home, or in your car, but that won’t help you if you can’t access it.

But there is one thing that every person carries with them at all times –

Equipment Review: Solo Backpacking Stove

DCIM100SPORT

Rourke: This post was originally published back in July of 2012. It can be seen HERE in its original format.

 

I was recently contacted by the folks at SoloStove.com about testing out one of their Solo Backpacking Stoves. Of course I said “Yes!” and within days arrived at my door was a small cardboard box containing the stove.

Upon initial inspection the fit

The Ultimate Bug Out Vehicle Gear List

bug out vehicle

Though a bug out bag can help you last anywhere between a couple of days to a week, a well-equipped bug out vehicle can help you survive for weeks away from home, just in case you didn’t get to or don’t have a bug out retreat.

In today’s article I want to focus on the gear that you should stockpile inside you car, excluding food and water, which will be the topic of a future

Hello

Hi,

I’m Dan Stevens, the new owner of this website. As you probably know, John moved on to another project, leaving me with the difficult task of bringing fresh new survival content. I’m confident that me and my small team of contributors will write with high-quality info.

We’re probably going to write 1-2 articles per week and increase the frequency the moment we free up time from our other commitments.

Since it’s almost New Year’s,

Changes at ModernSurvivalOnline

Rourke & youngest son

It is with a heavy heart and a healthy dose of excitement that I announce ModernSurvivalOnline is under new ownership.

A few weeks ago I was approached about selling it. The decision was not easy. Since May 29th, 2010 I have put countless hours into this website and passing the torch onto someone else was not something I had been considering. After weighing my options and using logic rather than emotion the decision came fairly

All –

I am in the process of developing a new website. This website will be quite different than ModernSurvivalOnline. Current brainstorming has new posts arriving promptly every Tuesday morning. Topics will include current events, US/world news, the declining state of this country, freedom, patriotism, and more.

Yes, preparedness will certainly come up now and then.

The goal of this new project is to discuss opinions and ideas which are unapologetically Pro-American, Pro-Constitution, Pro-Freedom, and

Video of the Week: The Time for Compromise is OVER

YouTube is an absolutely incredible source of information on almost anything you can think of. Every week we feature a new video related to a variety of topics such as firearms, first aid, gardening, security, food storage, water filtration….and current events.

The Patriot Nurse put out another no holds barred philosophy video regarding current events and the direction of this country.

Thoughts?

Hope everyone had a great weekend.

I started ModernSurvivalOnline.com several years ago to connect with likeminded people. The tag I have used since its inception has been “Thoughts on Survival and the World Today”. I believe it has been accurate. Every so often I receive an email from someone complaining about talking politics, or even my personal life as they expect me to provide them preparedness information and that’s all. As I have said many

Just what constitutes “SHTF”?

preppers

Whether it is in the pages of this website or countless other places across the Internet the perspective over what constitutes a “SHTF event” is often discussed. Typical characteristics involve power outages, communications down, food shortages, fuel shortages, lawlessness, and economic collapse. Disagreement begins to surface when specifics are put forth.

How will the population react? How much will race play a role? Will civil war break out? Will a top secret government army come

This is the weekend before Christmas and when most of us should be relaxing the reality for most of it is pure craziness. I imagine Panhandle Rancher sitting in front of a fire, reading a book, just enjoying being alive. I envy that. My wife is working on some craft projects she has been doing selling online to make extra money. The kids are sleeping in till noontime since they are out of school. My

From the Desk of John Rourke – Meeting Other Preppers

Over the last several years I have met many like-minded people. Preppers. Survivalists. Homesteaders. I joined a survival group a few years ago and the group has become extremely tight. It hasn’t been all “palm tree’s and ocean breeze” but we have stuck together. With the stuff going on the world now we are stepping it up in a major way.

Along the way I have met some very interesting people. While many were good
