Part of survival is having enough food, water, and supplies to ensure you can survive for a period of time in any emergency situation, such as a natural disaster or any major catastrophic event, whether it is natural or man-made. But if the event lasts long enough to chew through that food and water and the supplies you have stocked up, then what? Perhaps the most important part of survival isn’t what you

One of the things that is so chaotic about emergencies, including criminal acts like home invasions, riots, and other disasters like tornados, floods, power outages, or even a SHTF event, is that they are unpredictable. They often come out of nowhere and the situation is made worse by the fact that most people panic.
Okay so now we know it’s the element of surprise that catches many people off guard. Precious reaction time

I can’t tell you how many situations I’ve been in with people who’ve needed to tie something and have absolutely no clue how to efficiently nor correctly.
Knot tying is something that is so often overlooked, but crucial for every survivalist to know. Time is of the essence when SHTF. Improving your survival skills with knot tying will forever make even the most practical of situations, such as tying a boat or

Body armor is a useful product that can provide protection in a range of circumstances. It will seem obvious to most that personal protection is important to consider when preparing for the end of the world, and all preppers should at least be aware of the options available to them in body armor. For example, most will consider a bullet proof vest for the benefits it can provide even before the SHTF. However, many will

Throughout your research, you’ve likely come across a great variety of opinions on what the best overall type of bag is and which equipment you should put in it and what you should leave out.
The goal of this article is to

Any smart prepper has studied how to prepare for an economic collapse or some other disaster that wipes out the power grid and basically sends the world into chaos. Most preppers have a get home bag and/or a bug out bag in an accessible location, and have either a bug out location selected or a plan to fortify their home and bug in with their family.
Along with all this planning, you know

In last week’s article, I gave you some pretty eye-opening videos and arguments to why Europe is dying, however, I forgot to do one thing: to give you some cold hard statistics about Islam.
These aren’t estimations. They are STATS from verifiable sources and I encourage you to write more stats in the comments box below if you have them.
Muslims have a high fertility rate of 3.1 (source 1, source 2), with the replacement

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 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:

“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

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

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 –

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

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

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.

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

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
