5 Must-Haves for Long-Term Wilderness Survival

shutterstock_156727028

So it’s the end of the world as we know it, and you must pack up all you own and flee into the wilderness to escape the shambling hoards of slavering undead and roaming bands of raiders—or, maybe you are just going on an extended camping trip. Either way, you aren’t alone in your desire to get away. The Outdoor Foundation reports that about 38 million Americans traveled more than 200 miles to spend time

Federal Judge Rules 2nd Amendment does not cover AR-15′s and AK-47′s

Read the full article HERE. A US District Court Judge ruled that Maryland’s restrictive guns laws enacted last year do not violate the states citizens Second Amendment rights.

In summary the Judge stated that “The Act substantially serves the government’s interest in protecting public safety, and it does so without significantly burdening what the Supreme Court has now explained is the core Second Amendment right of ‘law-abiding, responsible citizens to use arms in defense of

Movie: Goodbye World

gbw

Movie summary: When a mysterious terrorist attack causes chaos in the cities, a group of friends take refuge in their countryside cabin. But the challenges of living in a post-apocalyptic world soon take their toll on relationships within the group.

Goodbye World was not a favorite of professional movie reviewers. In fact it received horrible reviews which is understandable considering the political affiliation of those in Hollywood. Regardless – I really enjoyed this movie.

The world is full of infectious diseases that have made the news in recent weeks.

Twenty-one questions about Ebola: government propaganda, medical corruption and bioweapons experiments

eb

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor (NaturalNews) Something’s fishy about the official stories we’re being told on Ebola. Things don’t add up, which is why I’m posing these twenty-one important questions we should all be considering:#1) How can U.S. health authorities claim there is zero risk from Ebola patients being treated in U.S. hospitals when those same hospitals can’t control superbug infections? “Many hospitals are poorly prepared to contain any pathogen. That’s why

Getting Past the Basics: Retreats

retreat-cabin

 

I’ve been mulling an article of some sort about how things are changing so fast, and that the center can’t hold against pressure like this forever, but Remus surely beat me to it.

It doesn’t really matter, though; it’s not like you really needed to hear it from me (or him). Take any number of recent headlines and tell me your thoughts: Planes being shot down, planes disappearing altogether, a new

Just picked up a Smith & Wesson M&P Shield 9mm pistol. I haven’t even shot it as of this writing nor do I have a holster yet. Handling wise? Love it. More to report soon.I looked at many compact pistols but could not find the right combination. I like the trigger pull, slim grip, and grip which provides support for all four fingers.

Letter Re: Food storage and vermin

pest_mice

I don’t think that the importance of keeping your food stores safe from all sorts of vermin has been discussed here on this forum. I really never thought about it truthfully. I have been gathering long term stores, inventorying them, rotating my stock, refreshing my water every 6 months and fleshing out my medical kits and emergency lighting. I have faithfully vac packed my pasta, my matches and boxes of oatmeal. My grains are

Picture of the Day: Muslims helped make this country great?

When I recently read a news article with quotes from President Obama where he gave credit to American Muslim’s for helping build this country. Here is the quote:

“Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy”

It appears that rappers and Liberal talk show hosts are not the only ones doing

Flashlight mounts for Mountain Bikes

IMG_00000519

Riding mountain bikes on trails is one of my favorite activities and it is something I do not get to do often enough. Riding at night has proven difficult in total darkness. In order to facilitate my riding I have used small bungee cords to wrap a flashlight around my handlebars. Does it work? Sometimes. Unfortunately a good solid bump will jar the light loose and then I find myself riding blind and trying to

Looking for a red dot sight? Great deal!

vortex

Hey all –

Just saw that Amazon has a great deal on the Vortex Strikefire – a red dot site ideal for an AR-platform. I have owned one of these for the past several years and they have been a very reliable and accurate sight.

Regularly found over $160.00 – as of this writing Amazon has it for $127.00 with Free Shipping. Amazon changes their prices often so there is no telling how long it

Gault on……Preserving The Harvest

canning

Home canning has been around since the mid 1800s. That’s when a tinsmith named John L. Mason invented the Mason Jar. For most of its existence canning was done by the “open kettle method”, but with the advent of the “pressure canner” canning became more useful and more broadly used. With the spread of supermarkets and the industrialization of food production, but for a few diehards, canning faded from our culture, at least

Learn Discipline Now Instead of Later

by Gale

Nothing comes for free. That includes good habits like discipline. The more disciplined we are now the better off we will be when the next emergency situation comes along. But wouldn’t it be better to learn to do without now as opposed to later when you are struggling to deal with a new reality?

 

Unfortunately our country in no way, shape, or form promotes discipline. An old sage piece of advice goes
