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 –

websites

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

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

Last minute Christmas shopping solutions…..

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

Is Post-Disaster Bartering a Possibility?

bartering

By BD

The answer to that question is a wholehearted YES. Whether you know it or not, the barter system you learned about oh so long ago is still up and running. You make use of it every single day to do a whole variety of things! The barter system (which is thought to have ended when we first used currency) is defined as an exchange of goods or services. This

Per Arlene’s request – Rourke’s Christmas list

Snoopy-Christmas

Arlene responded to my comment about not knowing what to get my wife for Christmas – and asked for men to speak up about gift ideas. I generally tell my wife I don’t want anything as being married to her is a gift all year round.

Normal response: “Yeah. Whatever.”

 

It just so happens I did send her a link to something I would like to have. It was a CRKT Chogan T-Hawk. Fellow

Everyday Items You Should Have on You to Withstand an Apocalypse

By Cherie

In the event of an apocalypse, you want to be fully equipped with tools that increase your chances of long-term survival. Prepare yourself through tactful outfitting of everyday accessories that can withstand harsh conditions. Many of the devices you use are powered by battery or electrical energy, which may not be at your disposal in an emergency situation, so make sure you own devices that are sufficient enough to sustain power and support

From the Desk of John Rourke – December 8th, 2015

New York And New Jersey Continue To Recover From Superstorm Sandy

Great responses to the SHTF Scenario published yesterday.

Each and every person reading the scenario is envisioning their own personal interpretation of circumstances, environment, threat level, and events that have transpired over the past 24 hours. 24 hours into a grid down situation brought on by terrorist attacks a man knocks on my door asking for help as he ran out of gas and has no means to purchase fuel or food. At this moment

Rourke’s Weekly “Prepper Christmas Gift” Recommendations

recommended

Every week I throw out a few recommendations on things such as movies, books, knives, flashlights – all kinds of stuff. Some of these are not related to preparedness whatsoever – rather, just stuff I like. Most are available on Amazon but not all. I have a particular fondness for movies as one of my favorite things to do is to sit back and watch a good one.

So – for this week……here is my
