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

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

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. Dr. Group has ide

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 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

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

It’s hard to quantify, but the modern prepping movement has at least, in part, been caused by the government. I am not referencing fear in the government doing something stupid that would force us into survival mode (although that is possible), but instead in promoting the idea of disaster preparedness. FEMA’s Ready.gov website contains a host of information on how to prepare for a pending disaster, and radio c

4 Foolish Mistakes People Make When Picking A ‘Bug-Out’ Location (LOTS Of People Do No. 2)

When choosing a location to “bug out” to, there are three very common mistakes people make, each of which could seriously compromise your survival plan, or even worse. Don’t make these mistakes, and you’ll stand a much better chance of pulling through. Mistake 1: Head for the hills! Sure, we’ve all said it, either seriously or in jest. Things go south, we’ll fall back to the mountains and regroup. Espec

Mysterious Phenomenon ‘Radiation Clouds’ May Be Bringing ‘Radioactive Rain’ To America – ‘Radiation Readings Off The Charts’ As ‘Constant Phoenix’ Is Deployed To Europe

– ‘And No One Knows Where The Radiation Comes From’ The February 3rd story from New Scientist reports upon a newly discovered mysterious phenomenon that may pose a risk to air travelers: ‘radiation clouds’. ‘Danger zones’ in the air where radiation levels surge to the point where they could pose an unrecognized health hazard, the NASA-funded Automated Radiation Meas

Survival Kitchen: How To Revive Cast Iron Cookware

Want to know the best thing about cast iron skillets and pots? They’re practically indestructible and will last literally hundreds of years. I used to have a couple that were well over a hundred years old. When they were stolen, I was heartbroken. Yes, that’s right. Somebody stole them. And that, my friends, is about the only circumstance from which you can’t revive your cast iron cookware. Another great thi

Strange Winter Tricks My Ancestors Used To Stay Warm

When winter rolls around, most of us simply curl up in front of the wood stove or fireplace, or even turn on our electric blankets, but what would you do if those things were suddenly gone? If the worst-case scenario occurred, would you know the ways that our ancestors stayed warm during winter? During those times, we might not be able to have a fireplace or a cozy home to sit out the winter months. So this might b

Prepping For An Evacuation: How To Be Ready When The Gov’t Says ‘Get Out’

Mother Nature has incredible power available at her fingertips — much more than we humans do. With water alone, she is able to destroy some of mankind’s greatest accomplishments. Water leveled the city of Miyako, Japan, in 2011, as a tsunami brought a wave surge 128 feet high. Water also destroyed much of New Orleans when Hurricane Katrina hit the city in 2005. Currently, Northern California is closely watching

The Lifetime Stockpile: What You’ll Need To Survive Past The First Year

One of the biggest questions facing anyone who is trying to prepare for disasters is that of time. How long will the crisis last? How long will it take for society to get back to normal? This question drives everyone’s stockpiling efforts — most especially, the decision about how much to stockpile. What do we do if the disaster and its aftermath outlast our stockpile? Wouldn’t that normally put us in the same
