Survival Library After TSHTF

mags (1)

The Survivalist book series by Jerry Ahern was one of my favorite reads as a teenager. My favorite part that I remember was a “shelter walk-thru”. You see – the main character had a hidden underground shelter that after the first several books – he finally makes it to. Upon entering – the book describes the contents of the shelter in great detail. One of the parts of the shelter that I remember most was

Guest post: Getting Started in Beekeeping

Lang hive

by Sarah

This is my 3rd year as a hobby beekeeper, I seriously love being a beekeeper and look forward to heading out to the apiary (technical name for where the beehives are) to see the girls buzzing in and out of their hives. If you look closely at each bee when it returns to the hive you can usually see mounds of pollen clumped to their back legs…sometimes its bright orange

Prepper Burnout?

 

Ever look at your efforts in preparedness and think to yourself – “Self, is this all just a waste of time?” Ever think about the hours spent reading blogs, visiting preparedness forums, and making plans and consider that all of that time could have been spent doing something more “important?” I mean – that awesome AR-15 that you finally got off of layaway could have afforded the family a nice vacation

My thoughts on the Kindle Fire……

kindle-fire-249x300

I have no delusions that an electronic device is going to play a major role in my and my family’s survival if TSHTF. With that in mind – I love my Kindles.

I enjoy the many conveniences that technology today can provide. This includes GPS, hi-tech cell phones, Blu-Ray, and the Internet. Over the past year I have been using an Amazon Kindle-keyboard for reading several books. I have found the Kindle

Do you have an Emergency Fund?

emergency-fund-300x300

I am not the most financially sound person in the world. One thing I do know – is just when things seem to be going well something unexpected always seems to happen where money is suddenly needed.

I make decent money and typically have “disposable” income to pick up a little of “this” or a little of “that“. Typically go out to eat once a week, and pick up some preparedness supplies.

The ultimate survivalist……

comic

We humans like to think of ourselves as the epitome of evolution – the supreme being on the face of the planet. We have conquered and inhabited the four corners of this planet and have ruled over all other species to the point that some have gone extinct. Man continues to dominate Earth – however, man is not the ultimate survivalist.

I believe that distinction goes to the cockroach. Yes…..I believe the
