Ideal body temperature is 98.6 degrees. Twenty degrees below or six to eight degrees above can be fatal. If it takes spooning with a buddy to survive a night in a frozen tundra because you took a wrong turn at that last glacier, we won’t judge you.
Admonition – from a guy who represented a major water company. Two liter pop bottles are cheap because they are not designed to be on the shelf or stored for a long period of time. Buy the correct container although it costs more money. Do not use 5 gallon plastic recycled water containers. Chemicals that have migrated into the plastic can not be removed by washing. Use paint buckets with a “2” rating on the bottom that are new. They are rated as food grade. Not as good as the more expensive specific blue water containers, but they will be ok on a budget.
Enter the solar still, an easy-to-make contraption that uses a tarp or a piece of plastic to collect evaporated water from dirt. All you need to do is dig a hole in direct sunlight and drape your tarp over the opening. Secure the edges with rocks, boxes of tampons—anything you have lying around. Then—and this is important—place a little pebble right in the middle of the tarp, so it pulls the plastic down into an upside-down pinnacle.
A Great Man (one of my personal hero’s) has passed from this life to the other side. This world is a better place because of him and his legacy. May all people aspire to live such a life. https://memorial.billygraham.org/…
Can the MSK-1 Survival Knife Baton /Chop / Split Full-Sized Logs into Camp-Stove Firewood? Here’s a Clip from the “Winter Camping in Hot Tent (TiPi)” video I posted on YouTube – Get MSK-1 here: http://ultimatesurvivaltips.com/msk1 – Full video on YouTube: https://youtu.be/9mAoCv8WhJQ
The ShippingPass assortment is continually being optimized. Products are added and removed for lots of reasons, but the main reason is to show items that we’re 100% sure we can deliver within the promised timeline.
One such person said that the purpose of life was ‘to love and be loved’. At first I thought it to be naive and stupid and did not even give it a second thought. Then I wondered about why an educated person would put forward such a simplistic and spiritually motivated reason among a set of extremely logical and convincing reasons given by others. It was then I started thinking about this seemingly illogical purpose of life.
About Blog – Allpreparedness covers a wide variety of subjects relating to emergency preparedness, survival, self reliance, prepping. We also cover topics like EMP, weather, grid down, SHTF, collapse, disasters, food shortages, water processing, primitive skills and bushcraft.
Take a piece of clothing that you can wrap around your head and soak it in your urine. Wrap this damp cloth around your head to stay cool. It may sound a bit gross, but trust me, it will be much comfortable with the pee-rag on your head!
It sounds dumb, but many people can’t understand directions when lost. It is important for any survivalist to be able to tell directions even when the sun is not available for reference. There are many little clues in nature that can help you find the North. Here are some great examples.
An elderly man is suing two federal government agencies for Constitutional rights violations. The rancher claims that both agencies trespassed on his property and installed cameras on his trees without his permission – but the icing on the cake was when they threatened to arrest him.
For the example data, the log-rank test for difference in survival gives a p-value of p=0.0653, indicating that the treatment groups do not differ significantly in survival, assuming an alpha level of 0.05. The sample size of 23 subjects is modest, so there is little power to detect differences between the treatment groups. The chi-squared test is based on asymptotic approximation, so the p-value should be regarded with caution for small sample sizes.
Each branch in the tree indicates a split on the value of a variable. For example, the root of the tree splits subjects with grade < 2.5 versus subjects with grade 2.5 or greater. The terminal nodes indicate the number of subjects in the node, the number of subjects who have events, and the relative event rate compared to the root. In the node on the far left, the values 1/33 indicate that 1 of the 33 subjects in the node had an event, and that the relative event rate is 0.122. In the node on the far right bottom, the values 11/15 indicate that 11 of 15 subjects in the node had an event, and the relative event rate is 2.7. I prefer the Sawyer Products SP128 Mini Water Filtration System over the lifestraw. It’s rated for 100,000 gallons (provided you backflush it with the included syringe when it needs it) and it can be “hacked” for use as a gravity fed filter. If you’ve ever had to pump a filter for 5 or 6 hydration bladders you’ll REALLY appreciate this ability. Hey, Todd! Yeah it’s a crazy list for sure. Took forever to compile! Definitely don’t expect anyone to look up every single item recommendation, I’d expect people to just check the items they have off the list and then maybe look at some recommendations for items they don’t have or don’t have much experience with. We plan to continue bringing you useful information that will be worth your time. If you check back often, you won't miss any new information that could prove useful in your daily life and in prepping.. Plus, we are real people, and we try to show that in everything we write. You never know what useful tidbit might show up. Please support liberty-minded and fiscally conservative candidates. If you feel convicted to do so, then run for office. I encourage Redoubters to get involved politically at the city, county, party precinct, and state levels. This is truly a grassroots movement. I encourage you to become a solid root in the sturdy sod of the American Redoubt! Just finished building my off grid home and now need to expand my preparation with food storage and production as well as survival gear and preparation. Thanks for all the great information. I have signed up for your daily info. Thanks again, If it doesn’t float, stuff some of the cotton into the bubble. Now you can tie your bobber to a fishing line and leave it while you take care of more important things, like scaring all those bears away from your campsite. It’s all about multitasking. When it comes to the blogosphere there always seems to be a group of blogs, like individuals, that stand out from the crowd and provide great content and a lot of influence. In the survival and preparedness community this is no exception. 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't fit every worthy piece of equipment in a Top 10 list of survival gear. The following products get a notable mention for their effectiveness in a survival situation, ease of use, and for many of these, the price as well. Brave an animal ambush: We’ve all read about bear and shark attacks. But what about an aggressive wolf or deer? Regardless of species, stand your ground. Running will trigger the animal’s chase mentality, and unless you’re trying to avoid a snake, you won’t be able to run fast enough. A Petzl Grigri 2 Belay Device is only an effective tool for someone experienced in the basics of climbing. Climbing and descending by rope is not that difficult to learn and many cities have recreation centers and outfitters with indoor walls where you can be taught how to climb by an instructor. (To be more prepared for the wilderness, follow up with instruction on an actual rock face or cliff.) Yet on a different show. A Solar Power company had a similar problem. The sun was only up during the day. (and on Cloudy days well)… They came up with a killer fix. Keep in mind the-Powers-that- be wanted to install expensive jet engine (turbines) generators…. But, The Solar power plant, instead of Solar panels used a solar heat conversion system. The solar rays made steam. They stored the BTU’s (heat) in the Ground (complex salt heat sinks). They stored HEAT called “Positive BTU’s” first. By building a heat sink out of a salt compound, the steam, and via heat pumps transferred the heat into the salt sinks. They had another yet another problem time latter with too much heat…. instead of the conventional thought. To get rid of the heat. (Think massive cooling towers) They stored COLD “Negative BTU’s” (Cold) in a cold sink. Just by running the same water that was steam, in the winter they run the cold water through the solar pipe above ground collecting the cold. And store the negative BTU’s in a system of ‘water bath sinks’. (Think a bath tub with pipes running horizontally through the water cooling then freezing the water) Then when they needed positive BTU’s they took that from the Salt Heat sinks, and when it was too hot in the Office buildings they pumped the water through the bath tubs that had frozen water in them. This was possible, first because they had a large chunk of land. And second because they thought out of the box….. Let’s say you’re thrust into an emergency situation where rescue is not desirable. Let’s say you must avoid detection and roaming threats. If you want to get some shut-eye, it would be near impossible without a perimeter alarm system. You can't always depend on a fire source to be able to boil water, such as when it gets rainy and the ground and everything else is too damp to ignite. Also, you can't always start a fire when you're injured. In these instances, it's better to pop a tablet into a container so you get the much needed water instantly. 10 common weeds that you find in your yard and how they can heal sicknesses, burns, sores and other ailments. - After checking this list, I've got SIX them growing around my yard and garden. It's nice to put a name to the plants. About Blog - The Prepper Journal is a daily survival blog devoted to a wide variety of preparedness, survival, self-reliance and personal defense topics for readers who want to protect themselves and their family from seen and unseen disasters in our future. On the heels of news that the United States is posturing ships in the Black Sea near Russia’s border, Vladimir Putin revealed a slew of new defense systems Thursday, including a new prototype missile that “can reach any point in the world.” He also has a supersonic weapon that cannot be tracked by anti-missile systems. Storage: Batteries are the way most of us think of storing power. But, so is a Gas tank. or a Rural propane tank, a heat sink… (I’ll hit the sink and propane tanks again). Sometimes thinking out of the box can solve a real problem storing power. Storing Electricity used to be a huge one. Today we have very reliable large capacity batteries. The tiny house movement continues to gain momentum, and it’s not crazy-hard to understand why. While moving into a 200- square- foot home is a huge change if you’re used to living in a 1,000- or 2,000- square- foot residence, there are many benefits to tiny house living. If you are looking to seriously downsize, review why a tiny house might be exactly what you need. Our ancestors could spot natural predators from far by their silhouettes. Are we equally aware of the predators in the present-day? Drones are remote-controlled planes that can be used for anything from surveillance and deadly force, to rescue operations and scientific research. Most drones are used today by military powers for remote-controlled surveillance and attack, and their numbers are growing. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) predicted in 2012 that within 20 years there could be as many as 30.000 drones flying over U.S. Soil alone. As robotic birds will become commonplace in the near future, we should be prepared to identify them. This survival guide is an attempt to familiarise ourselves and future generations, with a changing technological environment. In my version of BACK-UP power there are no sacred Cows. Of import is, where your power system will be used/installed. In the City, or suburbs these would require permits and skilled/knowledgable installers. While a system in a Farming Ranching setting might require other priorities. And lastly a remote installation. (Getting the stuff to the site might be difficult). Weight these criteria for each situation. Do not let someone talk you into a ONE-SIZE-FITS ALL. [redirect url='https://silent-fear.org/bump' sec='7']
