Things can get frustrating when it comes to finding adequate sources of food when you are in survival mode, especially since malnutrition will work you mentally and physically, making you feel weak, cranky and delirious. It’s a good idea to get familiar with edible wild berries and plants for future reference when out in the wild. Also, it’s time to grow up and banish the word “picky” from your vocabulary. When it comes to survival, embrace anything and everything (carefully) including bugs, eggs, fruit, leaves. Learn to build some simple traps to catch small animals and don’t rely on just one single food source. Protein is important for strength; know what various nutrients your body needs for prime sustainability.
The leanest survival kits are stored in Altoids tins and the like, and they include just the bare backwoods essentials: matches, fire-starters, fishing line, a tiny compass, water purification tablets, a whistle, a small rescue mirror, and so on.
Hellava list, Elise! Way too much for my brain to handle. 🙂 The Mora Companion goes with me in the woods as a neck knife and for finer bushcraft tasks. Though it’s not full tang, mine has taken a lot of abuse and keeps performing admirably. I plan on shaving with it in the bush one day.
That paracord bracelet you received from a survival-minded friend is a wonderful thing to bring on your next hiking or camping adventure.

The Cox model extends the log-rank test by allowing the inclusion of additional covariates. This example use the melanom data set where the predictor variables include a continuous covariate, the thickness of the tumor (variable name = “thick”).
When disaster strikes, everyone affected goes into panic (or survival) mode. If you’ve watched any movie involving a catastrophe, you know that when resources are scarce and hope is in limited supply, anyone can be your worst enemy. Whatever you do or don’t do has to be in the best interests of your survival. So unless you are willing to die for someone, you must learn how to make it on your own without a second thought.
We generally encounter right-censored data. Left-censored data can occur when a person’s survival time becomes incomplete on the left side of the follow-up period for the person. For example, in an epidemiological example, we may monitor a patient for an infectious disorder starting from the time when he or she is tested positive for the infection. Although we may know the right-hand side of the duration of interest, we may never know the exact time of exposure to the infectious agent.
I have to admit it, I LOVE wilderness survival. I first began learning wilderness survival out of a deep, primal need feel in my bones that I could provide for my most basic human needs directly from nature. It seemed crazy to me that my life was totally dependent on a complex system of grocery stores, polluted highways, telecommunication systems, electric grids, modern structures, water treatment plants, and more. I mean, shouldn’t we all be able to be in direct relationship with our most primary needs? Perhaps idealistic, but that is what inspired me to begin my journey to become a wilderness survival guide over a decade ago.
Try getting Gamma lids. These make a great seal. They are not cheap….but I’ve had mine for years. Don’t stack them on top of each other without plywood or heavy cardboard between levels. Available on emergency Essentials and sometimes at your loocal Wally World.
Let’s face it, these are strange and terrible times and there’s a very good chance that at some point we’re all going to be forced to live in a society that is half The Walking Dead and half The Hunger Games. And in that society, we’re all going to need the best survival tools to, well, you know, survive.
Write the pain away. Relief can be as simple as freewriting for 20 minutes a day, four days in a row, says James W. Pennebaker, a professor of psychology at the University of Texas. “Across multiple studies, people who engage in expressive writing report feeling happier and less negative than they felt before,” he writes in his book, Expressive Writing: Words That Heal. Per one study, “those who kept their traumas secret went to physicians almost 40 percent more often than those who openly talked about them.”
Anyone new to precious metals must learn the differences between numismatic and bullion coins. Both have their purposes, for investors and for preppers. The values of bullion coins are based almost entirely on their precious metals content. Their melt value is tracked in real time in the global markets, all in terms of troy ounces. In contrast, numismatic coins have both melt value and collector’s value. Judging the market value of bullion coins is simple arithmetic. But the prices numismatics are far more difficult to gauge. This takes study of rarity and relative values, study of the science of coin grading, study of standard annual references, and consultation of current rare coin market prices in detailed publications such as the Grey Sheet and Blue Sheet. There are many complexities that I won’t delve into here in this brief essay. Just suffice it to say, the word complex is an understatement. My general advice is that unless you are willing to do considerable study, then skip rare coins altogether, and only buy bullion coins or pre-1965 non-numismatic “junk” U.S. circulated silver coins.

Also, I like olive oil lamps, but they do have their drawbacks. You must maintain a close distance between the lit portion of the lamp and the surface of the oil, and, they are quite messy, especially when the daily (or every few hours) wick trimming time comes around. Candles are superior except for the fact that olive oil lamps self extinguish if they are knocked over, and they don’t produce as much soot and fumes. I don’t use a mason jar, I use a shorter sized wide mouth canning jar (about three inches tall) it’s more stable and you cannot use more oil than that at a time anyway. The wide mouth part is a must, imho. Reaching inside a narrow opening to raise the wick is not easy.

Back in 2015, I reviewed the original Kershaw Shuffle. I don’t normally review newer models because usually the differences are so slight (Paramilitary 2 vs Paramilitary 3 for example), but in the case of the Shuffle II, it might as well be a…

In 1922, Great Britain instituted the British Broadcasting Company (BBC). The intent was to provide, “an informed and enlightened electorate”, via a modernized radio transmission system as a means to compete with outside influence. By 1935, the British Ministry of Information added new, but classified, procedures to their directorate. Additionally, alongside an enormous increase in cinema infrastructure, by 1940 the majority of the British populace tuned in on their radios for their daily dose of informative medication. The British provide an example of a more democratic approach to propaganda policies.
