Guest Post: Why You Need To Garden Now

small-vegetable-garden

This post was originally posted back in 211 and its contents still hold true. It can be seen in its original format HERE.

by J.Burk

It’s easy to find excuses not to garden: I’m too busy, I don’t want to ruin the lawn, I don’t have enough space, I’ll start when I move to the country. There might even be a few who bought a container of heirloom seeds, tossed it into the freezer and checked gardening off their to-do list.

 

The main fallacy in all these excuses is that you need all the experience

A few items every prepper should own now

survival, supplies, preparedness, 2012, TSHTF, TEOTWAWKI

I was thinking over this past weekend about a few things that some preppers often overlook but are really good things to have. Of course every persons environment, geography, and situation is different.

Anyways, feel free to comment on the list or add to it. If you would recommend any brands, makes or models – please share as well.

Waterproof Boots – Whether they are designed for hiking or for hunting having a good pair of waterproof boots can make a lot easier in the rain or snow. You know what I hate? Walking into my kitchen and stepping in

6 Emergency Items to Keep on Yourself at all Times

campfire2

 

by Jordan

 

The point of prepping is because you never know when something will go wrong. It could be a natural disaster like hurricane Katrina or a blackout. You should always keep a few items on yourself to ensure you’ll be ready for any disaster or storm that comes your way.

 

Fire Source

It’s always smart to have some sort of fire starter on hand. Example: Lighter, matches, flint… I personally prefer to always carry some flint on my person. Lighters are my second best choice as, unlike matches, they will still work if they get wet.

Best $5.00 spent on preparedness…..

IMG-20131122-00427

First off – I am not even remotely suggesting that $5.00 is going to get you any level of comfort when it comes to preparation. The point of this post is merely to see what $5.00 can get you. So many of us are on a budget and if I bring forth one idea – and several of you suggest some others – now we are getting somewhere!

So – for me the best preparedness item you can buy for $5.00 is a pack of Bic lighters. Think about it: five full sized Bic lighters can be

New website: BestKnifeDeals.com launches today!!!!

DSC_1732

Exciting information - BestKnifeDeals.com officially launches today.

Like many preppers I have been trying to stock up on various supplies over the past few years – including quite a few knives. Knives can run from cheap to very expensive and once I decide on a blade I look for the absolute best price possible. After all – I am on a budget like many others and try to stretch my dollars as far as possible. The purchasing power of the dollar is down while the need to purchase supplies is up.

 

The purpose of BestKnifeDeals.com is to highlight a knife every day(give

Review: Esbitt Pocket Survival Stove

This post was originally published here - http://modernsurvivalonline.com/review-esbitt-pocket-survival-stove/.

 

I recently had the opportunity to try out a classic survival item – the pocket stove. Mine came form SurvivalGearBags.com – and is also available from other sources as well.

Being able to boil water for purification purposes as well as heat/cook food in the field is important. Many foods – such as MRE’s and freeze dried camp foods – can be eaten cold but just flat out taste better warm. Eating food that is typically warm in a cold state is a morale killer and can be a negative factor into

What to do with $1000 right now….

This post was originally published here - http://modernsurvivalonline.com/what-to-do-with-1000-right-now/.

 

A little while back I read a post over at IfItHitstheFan.com concerning a recommendation on where to spend $900 on survival & preparedness preps.

I love thinking about stuff like this. It is sorta like “What would I do if I won the lottery?”

Back to reality.

There are many people across this great country that are just now seeing the light and beginning there preps. For many of these newcomers the question of where to begin is ever present. Some people are taking things serious and are willing

How Do You USE Your Preparedness Supplies?

I was thinking to myself this week how much I use my preparedness supplies.

“Use my preparedness supplies!” I hear the gasp!

I don’t believe in hoarding, even though sometimes

Call to Action: August ’13 – Fuel

This is the fourth installment of a monthly series called “Call to Action”. Call to Action (CTA) is a monthly reminder to review one part of your prep’s and strengthen it.

#1 – Food

#2 – Shelter

#3 – Water

Fuel is often overlooked as an essential survival prep. It is not exciting and “cool” like a GLOCK 17 pistol or a Buck Hoodlum knife…..but have none and life will become much more difficult.

Fuel for transportation may become difficult to obtain depending upon the situation at hand. After Hurricane Hugo there was no power within the city or surrounding areas for days. No power equal’s no

Call to Action: July ’13 – Water

This is the third installment of a monthly series called “Call to Action”. Call to Action (CTA) is a monthly reminder to review one part of your prep’s and strengthen it.

Water is taken for granted in many countries – but especially in the United States. Most all have crystal clear water at the turn of a knob or the twist of a bottle cap. Just imagine if the water stops flowing and the ability to grab a bottle of water ceases. Massive panic would set in and engulf populations quickly. Sanitation would quickly become dangerously poor and the ability to irrigate even a small garden

Prepper Footwear

Prepper Footwear: The Definitive Guide

by LM

 

When it comes to survival, it all comes down to your footwear. Great footwear allows you to move at speed, and with ease, over rough terrain. It protects your feet against damage. It keeps them warm and dry. And it sometimes has the capacity to protect us against other, more dangerous threats, such as when we’re under attack or when we encounter dangerous chemical agents. Put simply, footwear is a prepper’s best friend. But how do we know what kind of footwear is right for us?

Review and Giveaway: The Lifestraw

I have numerous methods of making water safe for drinking. One that I had always heard of but had never tried until recently was the LifeStraw. The LifeStraw is an ultra-portable water filter that you use just like a straw. Place the straw in the suspect water – and as you suck it through the unit the water is filtered.

Simple.

The LifeStraw has been used all of the world by those desperate for life sustaining water – but no clean water source available. The LifeStraw was designed to be used under the most extreme conditions and purify water which
