Why You Should Be Prepping… No Matter Who Gets Elected

presidential election

by Ryan

The most heated topic of discussion right now is the upcoming election for president. The general consensus is that neither candidate is ideal. Neither candidate has the true support of their party or the support of the public. No matter who is elected, expect chaos when the winner is announced. Whether you are pro-Hilary or pro-Trump, please keep prepping. There are dozens of reasons why we could face a SHTF scenario no matter

Every day, hundreds of homes burn to the ground. We hear it on the news channel and read it on the newspapers. The report usually comes with what caused the fire, who got injured and how long it took for the firemen to subdue the flames. House fires and wildfires can cause a ton of damages including the loss of everything you’ve worked hard for and in worse case scenarios, the loss of

If the SHTF and you find yourself in a situation where you are in need of a temporary shelter, what would you use? Sometimes it isn’t possible to rely on a pre-built shelter or dwelling, so you will need to be creative and able to use whatever resources you can. Or, maybe mobility is a necessity so being able to build quick and move is a factor.

by Megan

When you are faced with a survival situation where you have to bug out, you won’t be able to take all your containers, dishes, and tools with you. There just won’t be room in your backpack. Hopefully, you will have a bug out location already set up where you can store extra containers and tools, etc. But what if you don’t have a bug out location in mind? Or what if something unexpected

How to keep your underground Survival Stockpile Safe

digging a hole in the woods

by Jack Woods

The best assurance of survival during a collapse is to be prepared, and to stack the odds in your favor. You can do this by planning to build in redundancies right into your prepper plan, by stockpiling many smaller caches instead of only a few.

The best redundancy plan is to use many caches, and then in the event of discovery or spoilage (when it comes to perishables or rust regarding metal

You see it all the time on the streets and in the news where some criminal-minded thug grabs hold of his next victim with the intent to do her harm. While some politically correct believers say the best response is to just “talk nice” to your aggressor and he’ll stop.

Well, I don’t think so. Instead, I think you need a Quick

The Dual Faces of the Militia Movement

by Megan

The face of the Militia Movement that you see most likely depends on your political viewpoint and the amount of actual experience you’ve had with the members of a militia. It may also depend on which militia you have experience with as each of them differs in their level of extremism. The average American gets most of their information about the militia movement via the news media reports which come whenever there is

Satellite Phones for Preppers

by Jack Woods

I spend most of the year out in the Bush, well beyond any cellular coverage. I have been living this way since 2013, and though I usually try to get indoors during the harsh winters of the Rockies. I have even spent a winter this way also, living in my RV away from it all. I do not want to live any other way; it has been a great way of life.

The Best Rifle for Survival

Well, its time for some more back woods wisdom from me, Jack Woods. We all have our opinions on our favourite rifle for our favourite job. However, the question here is; what is the best prepper rifle?

If… you only can have one rifle in your bug out bag, what would that be Jack?

What would it be… is it that large calibre rifle that the often, very knowledgeable preppers like to

TRAGEDY IN DALLAS! Five Law Enforcement Officers Killed In Ambush Style Attacks and What the Preparedness Community Can Learn From This Tragedy

by Van Geste

I heard a great quote recently, “Things do not happen because of us, things simply happen to us.”

For anyone that has not yet heard; late last night and into early this morning Dallas Texas became a war zone. Four or more snipers took up positions in elevated areas during a Black Lives Matter protest. They then began to rain down bullets of the Law Enforcement officers who were overseeing the protest

How to Build a Shelter in the Woods

primitive shelter

by Nicholas

Building a shelter is one of your top priorities in any survival situation. Yes, you need water to keep you hydrated. You need food to keep your energy levels up. You need fire to stay warm and cook food. But a shelter ranks equally as high as those priorities. A good shelter will shield you from the elements and keep you alive, especially in severe weather conditions when just having a fire won’t

How to Make a Rabbit Snare

by Karen

When society collapses you will eventually have to find a way to get your own food by hunting and foraging for it. If you think prepping is all about storing away food and water, you are absolutely not going to survive. There is simply no guarantee you will have food at any point in time after the collapse. You might have to flee your home, leaving your preps behind. You might have looters

How to Build a Secret Underground Greenhouse

by Karen

One of the most important aspects of survival after the collapse of society is how to ensure you and your family have enough food. You may have a few months of food stored away, but eventually that will run out and you will need to hunt, forage, and grow your own food. The great thing is you don’t have to wait for the collapse to get started.

What is Democide?

by Megan

Many of us may not be as informed as our grandparents when it comes to politics and war, but we are still not a stupid people. Freedom is still important to a great many people and there are still many people, especially preppers, who are not willing to just follow along with whatever plans the government cooks up next.

In earlier times it was easier to control a million people than physically to

Surviving a Dog Attack

by Nicholas

A fun, relaxing day in the park can quickly turn into a nightmare if you’re ever threatened or attacked by an unfriendly dog. If an attack were to happen, would you know how to react and how to treat yourself after you have been wounded? And even more importantly, do you know how to avoid or defuse such a situation?

These are just a few of the questions that we are going to
