10 Terrifying Realities Of Long-Term Blackouts (That Americans Never Consider)

In any natural disaster or man-made crisis, only one thing is truly certain: Survival will not only be a challenge, but it will become each individual’s personal primary goal. Perhaps today, all that we’re worried about is a check engine light in our car or what to have for dinner, but that will all change in any true situation that takes down the power grid. But what will happen to Americans in a grid-down sit

‘It Is Like A Nuclear Bomb Went Off In The Prepping Community’

Is the prepper movement in the United States dying?  At one time it was estimated that there were 3 million preppers in the United States, but in late 2016 interest in prepping has hit a multi-year low.  The big reason for this, of course, is that the election of Donald Trump has fueled a tremendous wave of optimism among those that consider themselves to be conservatives, patriots and evangelical Christians.  N

25 Things That You Should Do To Get Prepared For The Coming Economic Collapse

14 Dog Breeds for Preppers

Tens of thousands of years ago, early humans established an unlikely alliance with another animal—the grey wolf. Over the last 15,000 years, our fates have intertwined, and we have managed to domesticate them into what we now call man’s best friend. Given the fact that dogs were the first domesticated animals—long before cows, sheep, pigs, or goats; before we even learned how to plant rice or corn; and before

Futuristic Looking Rifles and Guns

Top Futuristic Looking Rifles and Guns When I’m thinking about futuristic looking rifles, the first thing that comes to my mind is that awesome, kick-ass looking “blaster” from Star Wars. Remember that line Han Solo used on Luke Skywalker? “Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.” Oh, let’s not forget  the pulse-rifles used by Marines in Alien or Rick D

Tools The Early Pioneers Used on A Daily Basis

Setting out for the frontier in the 19th century was nothing like moving to a new city today. You weren’t moving to a place with a fully developed infrastructure, where you could easily get your hands on all the essentials of day to day life from a choice of stores and service providers. The hardy pioneers who built the West had to be self-reliant, and that meant taking everything they needed with them. We often

Top 5 Awesome Bug Out Vehicles You Can Actually Afford

How To Make Pemmican: A Survival Superfood That Can Last 50 Years

Created by Native Americans and adopted by European explorers of the New World, pemmican is a concentrated blend of fat and protein from lean, dried meat. The word “pemmican” is derived from the Cree root word “pimi” for “fat” or “grease.” Traditionally, the meat

This Is How Much Ammo You Should Stockpile

  Without the necessary ammo and magazines, a gun is little more than a metal or plastic club (and not a very good one at that). A major goal of every survivalist should be good security, and make no mistake: A loaded gun is far more effective than one that’s not! Most of your “gun money” should be spent on ammunitions and magazines. Many people like to customize their guns with various accessories, ofte

How To Build An Underground, Off-Grid, Virtually Indestructible Home

    We have all heard the one about how if you dig a hole straight down into the earth, eventually you come out the other side of the planet in China.

If the tremendous pressures you would encounter didn’t do you in, the intense heat ultimately would, and at a certain depth all of your excavation and drilling equipment

Prep Blog Review: How To Eat Right When SHTF

Having a balanced diet is pretty much of a challenge considering the limitations one has to face in a survival situation. Here are some useful tips I found this week, on this topic.
