Please, please please contact your State and Federal legislators, frequently. Don’t give up on this legislative fight, or our rights will get trampled. Tell your representatives that they MUST oppose any new gun laws. And remember: the phrase “universal background checks” is just statist code for a “ban on private party sales.” This sort of unconstitutional law would destroy the privacy of our gun purchases, paving the way for nationwide registration. Don’t fall for it!
Either Constitutional Law will be reestablished in America, and the treasonous cabal of Deep State minions are tried and convicted for their crimes – or – Trump and company turns out to be a minor speedbump on the final stretch towards the Ne…
Look for moss on a tree trunk. Mosses usually grow as far away from sunlight and are often found on the north side of the trees and rocks. If the tree or rock is covered in moss, it will be thickest on the north side.
Ensure that your survival kit is up-to-date. Many items of your survival kits have an expiration date. Glow sticks and water purifying tablets go bad after a few years. Check the expiration dates of these items before you head out for your big expedition.

Assuming that you have already begun a fire successfully, the next step is to let the potential rescuers know your position. If the woods are thick, it can become impossible to see through the canopy even if the search party is looking for you from a helicopter. To let them know where you are, you need some signal.

I think you’re a little short on security. I wouldn’t dream of bugging out or trying to survive post-TEOTWAWKI without a good handgun (or two) in 9mm Parabellum, a rifle in 5.56/223 Remington (whether AR or otherwise), and at least a 308 bolt action for longer range/harder hits.
Make sure you focus more on a bed than a shelter! It isn’t a luxury, it’s a necessity. The bed will protect you from the ground, which saps body heat and can cause hypothermia in a lot of cases. Plus, if you aren’t well rested, you won’t be at your best for other survival. It’s better to sleep under the stars in a bed, than to sleep in the total darkness and freeze to death. Ideally you have both, though. Piles of leaves are good bedding.
Snaring can be an excellent way to trap small animals while you are away building your shelter. However, it is important to know where to set up the traps. You can set the traps in places where you can see the animals running around. You can also hear small rodents and squirrels. It is even better if you are near a water body.
Once one arrives in the United States, there can be a baffling array of tasks to be accomplished, such as obtaining a social security number or a driver’s license. Signposts to Living in the U.S. provides the appropriate direction. Arriving in a foreign country with no credit history can also be problematic. Credit history from one’s home country is not considered, and banks are reluctant to offer credit cards. Yet, some landlords and utility companies require a credit history, which can only be established with a credit card. To help with this potential catch-22, the guide contains advice and options for more easily obtaining a credit card and building a credit history in So, Nobody Will Give You a Credit Card?.

-CR123 batts… Some love them, some hate them.. I’m indiferent because I get them issued to me for now, but I have to be honest, none of my personal items take them. I don’t even carry extra batteries for AA – I just find a yard with cheep sloar lights and trade them out. Power output vs. longevity divided by ease of finding extras, I always go with the standard. Plus, 2 years ago, there would have been a few guys who could have told you what most peoples reactions are to 900 illume light being strobed in some ones face – it can and is being trained against and super easy to defeat – don’t rely on it as a security measure – there is only one flash that is definate…
The Cox PH regression model is a linear model. It is similar to linear regression and logistic regression. Specifically, these methods assume that a single line, curve, plane, or surface is sufficient to separate groups (alive, dead) or to estimate a quantitative response (survival time).

One of the best sites out there related to wilderness survival skills, and number 7 in our list, is Ron Fontaine’s Survival Topics. Instead of just regurgitating things found in survival books, Ron follows a very similar approach that I do in that he practices and talks about things that he tries/uses/experiments with personally.
You can even chip off part of a cube to assist with fire starting, and then save the rest for later. A few shavings or chips of this tinder can greatly assist in the lighting of camp stoves and stubborn grills too. Just make sure you use up the product within a few months of opening the package, as the secret material seem to lose some flammability after being exposed to the air for a few months.
The US government’s Homeland Security website provides a list of in-home emergency kit items. The list focuses on the basics of survival: fresh water, food, clean air and materials to maintain body warmth. These basic survival items comprised into a kit are known as a Bug-out bag. The recommended basic emergency kit items include:
Most people can go five days without adequate sleep before damage sets in, according to the USAF Manual. Sleep whenever possible, taking catnaps here and there. Sleep deprivation stunts healing and clouds judgment.
