I am the invisible prepper. I am, on the surface, a caricature of everything that most SurvivalBlog readers seem to deplore. On the surface, I am a caricature of what the non-prepper community expects me to be– completely average in every way.
– Get yourself unstuck from paralyzing fear and pain. It means working hard to change so you can feel good and be healthy and positive, even under excruciating circumstances. You’ll find and create some kind of relief to get to a better place. Believe in yourself. You absolutely can do it.
– Bates Light series are nice, like putting your foot in a baby seal, but if you have high arches, get some good support – they also run narrow… Try on before you buy. – Bates also need very minimal break in time – IF you can afford them, always go with Danner brand combat boots – the USMC RAT boot is the tank of footware, they are pricy (all mine are issued 🙂 ) but well worth the cost.
I wrote Gardening in a Failed Economy after spending three summers working on gardens that can be made just about any were, using junk that you can scrounge by the side of the road, or at the local recycling place. the idea is that as the long term economy gets worse people, especially old people are going to have a hard time affording food (or any thing else for that matter). The book isn’t some cut and paste Internet BS, it is 3 years of my life, I proud of it, and I’m willing to put my money were my mouth is.
When assembling a kit for any trip, Forti takes something he calls the “rule of three’s” into account, which banks on the presumption that you can die in three hours when exposed to bad weather; that you can die in three days from thirst; and that you can die in three weeks from lack of food.
In early April 2009, shortly after its release, it was ranked number 6 in Amazon.com’s overall book sales rankings, but fell to number 33 a week later. By the end of the month it had fallen to number 98. The book’s initial popularity caught librarians unprepared because it was considered a niche title and had not been reviewed by the major book review publications. According to Library Journal, the topic struck a chord with a small but vociferous group of people concerned with survivalism who share a sense of societal anxiety associated with the economic recession. The journal went on to say that Patriots was reportedly originally conceived as a nonfiction guide. According to a number of Amazon.com reviewers, the novel will not win any literary prizes; its strength lies in its practical reassurances, focus on guns, and Christian ideology. Librarians then scrambled to purchase copies of the book to meet the unanticipated demand.

It may sound a good idea just to keep traveling even after the sunset if you are not exhausted completely. However, it is one of the most dangerous things that you can do in the wild. Make sure that all your traveling can wait until the break of the dawn. Traveling through the wilderness in the dark is an open invitation to danger.
We are already making a difference, but there is more to be done. Be vocal. Write letters to newspaper editors. Show up for “public comment” meetings, and let your voice be heard. Speak out against government over-reach, injustices, and racism. Help to stop expansion of zoning and building permits. Speak out to check any expansion of Federal power, bureaucracy, and taxation. Show up at BLM, Fish & Game, and U.S. Forest Service public meetings. Remind your elected representatives that they swore an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution, and remind them about who they work for. Write and phone them often.
We know there is a TON of crap out there about survival and prepping. We can’t help it to be surprised by the astonishing amount of B.S. crappy info, put out there by self proclaimed, so called “experts” that either push you to buy their gear and tools or send you in a wild goose-chase with no real world practical application. Think about it, chances are that most of the REAL expert suck at marketing and don’t really know how to get their actual good info out into the world.

Don’t rely upon modern technology like cell phones, GPS units, or radios to save you if you are lost. Take one with you if it’s available. But remember that these items are not foolproof; have a backup plan.
The Bear Mountain Bridge Hammock is a sleep straight hammock, due to the way it’s constructed. It is also an enclosed shelter — if you opt for one of these you don’t need a tarp shelter or tent. Consider a hammock like this model for those times you want to be up off the ground — for example during heavy rains or crossing through marsh, swamp, or even jungle.
Don’t bother using an axe. Just place the wood pieces diagonally between the ground and a tree. Give the pieces of wood a good kick (inspect the wood before doing this and assess the right balance between force and strength to avoid breaking ankle/leg).
But do you know what all these weapons have in common? To use ’em effectively you have to be a damn good shot. No joke! So you’ll either have to practice your @ss off in using’em until you feel confident enough that you can hit something with’em. Or you can stumble around in the woods trying to spear and shoot up every living thing in sight or until you scare away every living critter in the area.
High quality, durable blade. Very convenient and discreet. Fits in any credit card slot. This knife is for when you need to do something in a pinch, not heavy duty work. Very pleased with my purchase!
ax’s picks and shovels of different size. a truck of some sort. 12vdc fuel pump with long hose and power cable ( to pull fuel from underground tanks when no power. hand operated high pressure air pumps to fill your tanks. then there are tools to make items you need or repair.

Rawles has lived in San Jose, California; near Orofino, Idaho; near Smartsville (formerly Smartville, California); in Fremont, California; and near New Washoe City, Nevada. An article published by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation in 2008 incorrectly asserted that Rawles lived in California, but later in that article, Rawles noted that the location of his ranch in the United States is kept secret. We don’t actually reveal our location, even at the state level. All that I’m allowed to say is that we’re somewhere west of the Rockies. We intentionally keep a very low profile. We just don’t want a lot of people camping out on our doorstep the day after everything hits the fan. The German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung asserts that the ranch is in northern Idaho. Others have claimed that the undisclosed location of the ranch is in Nevada, Utah, Wyoming or even in Central America. His mailing forwarding address is in Newcastle, Wyoming. A CNN Europe article written before his first wife died noted that Rawles …lives on a ranch in an undisclosed location with his wife (who he refers to in his blog affectionately as ‘the Memsahib’) and their children. Their life is almost entirely self-sufficient: They keep livestock, hunt elk and the children are schooled at home. Stored away in the ranch somewhere is a three-year supply of food. In an article titled The Most Dangerous Novel in America, Rawles told The Daily Beast: I’m not at liberty to discuss where I live. It’s part of an agreement I made with my wife. I really can’t go into the details. We live in a very remote area. I embrace technology. We don’t live in a cellphone area, but I’m online constantly. We’re just prepared to live off-grid, if the power grid goes down. Because of the nature of my blog and my novel, I don’t just want anonymity, I need anonymity. I could wake up some morning in the aftermath of some crisis and look out in my barnyard and see five Winnebagos and some television news crews. I don’t want fans of my books to descend on my property, so I have to be perspicacious. In 2009, Rawles told an Agence France-Presse reporter: I’m surrounded by national forest. A river runs through the back end of the property, so there’s no shortage of water and no shortage of fish or game to shoot. If Western civilization were to collapse tomorrow, I’d have to read about it on the Internet. I just wouldn’t notice. His U.S. mail address is a post office box in Newcastle, Wyoming, but his main web site server is in Sweden. On an appearance a September 2013 radio show, he indicated in conversation that he was located in the inland Northwest.
This means going for waterproof versions of equipment (i.e. watches and compasses) and getting equipment that will keep your other stuff protected from water. Always use containers that have waterproof seals and never mix anything damp with all your other drop stuff. This is especially important for food containers, because moisture can only hasten spoilage. Water may be essential for hydration, but for everything else, staying as dry as possible is a must for survival.

Survival, is one of the most universal and basic human objectives. It’s the struggle to remain living: Self-preservation, an almost universal hallmark of life. And yet, never before in history has society been so unprepared for a major disaster or extended unrest. More frequent and devastating natural disasters, a very fragile financial system, violence on the rise, recurrent social unrest and clashes between authorities and civilians, the odds are that it won’t be long before one of these calamities test average person’s ability to stay safe and protect his or her family.

One final thought to consider are the side effects. The toxicity and flavor of iodine can be a little problematic. The iodine tablets are generally not a good choice for pregnant women, anyone with thyroid issues, or shellfish allergies. Picky children are also notorious for failing to drink iodine-infused water, which could lead to dehydration and other serious repercussions in an already dicey emergency. The Katadyn product is chlorine-based, the flavor of which dissipates over the allotted 4-hour waiting period. That product is widely tolerated and tastes much better.
About Blog – The author of Emergency Food Supply Blog likes to be as prepared as possible for an emergency and that is why he makes sure to have some good supplies at home and in the office. He shares this information of his supplies on the blog.
Dehydration is no joke. Whether hiking the Grand Canyon or spending another day at the office, staying hydrated is essential to health. The human body is at least two-thirds water, and once its liquid content is reduced, bad things start to happen. Let’s review mild to serious effects of dehydration to help your water intake efforts.
