The 12 Foods The Government Wants You To Stockpile (But Is It Enough?)

The One Shotgun That Passed The U.S. Military’s Torture Test

23 Items (Besides Food & Water) FEMA Says You Should Stockpile

Editor’s note: This is the second story in a two-part series about what the federal government says should be stockpiled. Read part 1 here. Perhaps surprisingly, the federal government has been part of what has driven the prepping movement. FEMA’s “ready.gov” website was developed with the idea of helping people to prepare for a natural disaster so that they would have a better chance of surviving it. Whil

5 Super-Fast Indoor Vegetables You Can Grow In About A Month

Winter gardening is good for the mind. It keeps us thinking and learning new things, which helps our brains stay alert, healthy and young. But gardening can be hard when there is a foot of snow covering the garden. Have you ever thought about growing vegetables indoors? Indoor gardening helps us grow fresh produce until our outdoor gardens are ready to be used again. Incredibly, there actually are vegetables you ca

8 Requirements of a Good Bug Out Location

If a major disaster occurs, millions of people will be forced to leave their homes and find some other safe place to live. Let me be clear about something: if you don’t secure your safe place before SHTF, then you will be a REFUGEE. You will be left roaming with the masses and fighting for any resources you can find. Let’s hope that a disaster never strikes, but let’s also be prepared for it by choosing a Bug

Bolt Action Or Semi-Auto: Which Is Best For Hunting?

Today, there are primarily two major types of rifles that comprise the majority of what hunters use for game: the traditional bolt action and the more modern semi-automatic. But is one better than the other? Both bolt action and semi-automatic rifles share one major thing in common: They began their careers as infantry weapons for militaries. After they had been perfected for battlefield use, they were then adapted

Why Almost Everyone Is Wrong About Tilling

For a long time my wife and I had sort of a running battle over the subject of my roto-tiller. I have watched vegetable gardeners and farmers alike going through the process of turning the soil each spring for as long as I can remember, and each year the crops roll in right on schedule. Seemed to be working just fine to me. So when we finally made the move to our homestead, my opinion when it came to the subject of

CDC Insider Warns Deadly Pathogens Are Increasing: ‘They’re New, They’re Scary And They’re Very Difficult To Diagnose’

– Is Bill Gates ‘Bio-Terror Doomsday Warning’ About To Play Out Across America? According to Dr. Edward Group in the first video below with Infowars reporter Millie Weaver, fungus, yeast and mold are the biggest hidden health threats that Americans face and most Americans who are afflicted with some sort of related illnesses have no idea what they’re afflicted with.

Doomsday Prep for the Super-Rich

An armed guard stands at the entrance of the Survival Condo Project, a former missile silo north of Wichita, Kansas, that has been converted into luxury apartments for people worried about the crackup of civilization. Some of the wealthiest people in America—in Silicon Valley, New York, and beyond—are getting ready for the crackup of civilization. Steve Huffman, the thirty-three-year-old co-founder and C.E.O. o

The Crazy, Lazy Gardener’s ‘Fall Trick’ That Will Eliminate Spring Weeds

For many gardeners, growing a bounty of fresh fruit and vegetables for their family and friends to enjoy is a labor of love – but nevertheless still a labor. And when other activities and responsibilities start to mount up, it can be easy to let the garden suffer. Wouldn’t it be great if there were a way to make gardening easier, with less work and perhaps an even greater bounty? If this sounds like fiction or

The First 10 Foods That Disappear From Store Shelves During Disasters

I live in a hurricane zone. While we don’t get a lot of hurricanes that actually hit us, we do get a lot of threats from them. So, I’ve seen how people react to them, time and time again. The funny thing is, the same people go to the store and buy the same things each time one is heading for us. They never seem to prepare or even improve upon their last-minute preparations. Setting aside the lack of wisdom that

8 Simple Ways To Live Off Grid On Less Watts

How often do you take electricity for granted? If you are like I once was, it happens quite frequently. Often, I would shut off lights and unplug things when not in use, but I still never really took the time to think about what it would be like to go without power — that is, until I spent more than two weeks after a hurricane in just that situation. I didn’t like it at first, but after a while, it was kind of
