Netflix Pick: Out of the Wild Survival Series

I have watched both Out of the Wild: The Alaska Experiment and Out of the Wild: Venezuela. These are a couple of very entertaining adventure series which set several strangers in the wilderness with limited resources.

The group of people have to rely on their resourcefulness to make it back to civilization alive, foraging for food, building makeshift shelters and battle harsh environments as they attempt to make it “out of the wild”.

Both of

Red Dawn re-make to be released November 2nd, 2012

rd2

I loved the original Red Dawn movie. I swear I must have seen it at least 40 times and still watch it every few months or so. When I first heard a remake was in the works I was very excited. Shortly thereafter the project was shelved due to financial problems as well as pressure from China (the villains in the movie).

The movie was reworked and now North

The Walking Dead Season 2 coming soon…..

The Walking Dead was a huge hit earlier this year with the prepper-crowd as well as many others. I can’t think of an apocalyptic event much worse than a full fledged zombie outbreak.

Zombies……..they really irritate me.

What doesn’t irritate me is the fact that on Sunday October 16th The Walking Dead Season 2 will premiere.

Here is the trailer:

Can’t wait…..

Thoughts on the movie – Contagion

Last night I went and saw the movie Contagion. It was very good.

The film has an ensemble cast that includes Marion Cotillard, Matt Damon,Laurence Fishburne, Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Kate Winslet. Contagion follows the rapid progress of a lethal indirect contact transmission virus (fomite transmission) that kills within days. As the fast-moving pandemic grows, the worldwide medical

Movie review: FASTER starring Dwayne Johnson

I know this has nothing to do with survival & preparedness – but I talk about things going on in my life sometimes.

I wasted 2 hours of my life last night watching “FASTER” starring Dwayne Johnson. I usually love Dwayne Johnson movies – but for me this one was terrible. The idea behind the story was OK – but the carrying out of the story was just so weak to me.

Here is the

Red Dawn

I watched the old 80’s movie Red Dawn the other week – and loved it.

As a teenager I watched it when it first came out in the theater a couple of times (back when new movie tickets ran about $3.75). A few months after its initial release it started to be shown in a local $1.00 theater. I swear I must have seen it 20 times if not more. Back then the Cold War

My Favorite Disaster & Apocalyptic Movies Part 2

Here is Part #2 of my favorite disaster and apocalyptic movies. Here is Part#1.

I love watching movies – and sometimes when I need some motivation with staying in-tune with my survival & preparedness goals – I pop in one of these DVD’s, pop some popcorn – and become absorbed into the movie.

Here we go:

Great weekend……………

Not a whole lot going on this Memorial Day weekend.

Pretty much just trying to relax and de-stress. Spending time with the family, working on my websites, and one of my favorite things……picking stuff from my garden. I pulled probally 20-25 pounds of cucumbers, zuchinni, and summer squash. Also harvasted a few potatoes from buckets. Bought a new issue of Mothers Earth News – which I thoroughly enjoy every 2 months. Put some thoughts into
