One of the things a person will learn in U.S. Special Forces survival training is that squirrels, rabbits, and other small mammals can make a quick meal. In the wilderness, all you need to know is how to read the ground around you and recognize areas that small mammals are likely to travel. Then set up a number of small, simple traps around the area (dead falls, snares, etc) and simply wait for traps to spring.
There is also a lot of scattered survival information that can easily send you in 100 different direction. Almost every internet prepper “expert”expect you to put everything together on your own, but almost no one will give you a step by step plan and spell out exactly what you need to do and how to do it in small steps.
While looking dapper will be at the bottom of the list, basic hygiene prevents infection and illness, according to the USAF Survival Training 64-4 Manual. If water is limited, strip down and take a literal “air bath,” which will prevent bacterial growth. Use ashes, sand or clay as soap if water is abundant.
the only item i would add to this list would be a decent crossbow. depending on the post SHTF situation it works wonderfully if you dont want to draw attention to your hunting activities. it is quiet and simple to operate and you can make replacement bolts for it from straight sticks if things are really awful. but as with the pellet rifle you want to practice shooting with it long before your situation devolves to life or death as accurite shooting takes practice!
Veterans day is our opportunity to honor the bravery and commitment of the countless men and women who have sacrificed time with their families, let duty dictate the path their lives will take, and faced… More dangerous and often terrifying circumstances in the name of defending our freedom.

Sometimes we forget how easy we have it. Amid our crazy life schedules we tend to take for granted that purified bottle of water when thirsty, or the push of a button to light a fire. But it’s important to remember that in the blink of an eye, it can all be gone. The unexpected happens, you get in an accident or lose your way; now, it’s just you and the wilderness with no ties to civilization. Here are ten basic survival tips to get you prepared- just in case.
This innovative mind blowing device has changed the way we manage our water needs once far away from that pesky thing called civilization. Sick of carrying gallons of water strapped to your back on a long hike through nature? Well, bust that spine no more with the Lifestraw! The tube is around 9 inches in length with a diameter of about an inch. The durable plastic exterior even comes with a little string attachment making it even easier to carry and keep on your belt. Through this straw’s mechanical dual filtration system, all you have to do is place the one end directly into nature’s water hole and start sucking. The hollow fibres inside promise to dispel bacteria, dirt and parasites so that only the cleanest of recycled water reaches your thirsty lips. This product promises you can enjoy an entire quart of water in just 8 short minutes and one single unit has the capacity to purify 1,000 liters of water before needing replacement. Time Magazine once named this device as the invention of the year. Find them for only 20 bucks!
In order to help alleviate some of these stresses and better inform current and prospective international postdocs, the National Postdoctoral Association (NPA) has created an online resource, the Survival Guide for International Postdocs. The Survival Guide was compiled by members of the former International Postdoc Committee with the expert assistance of university international offices and postdoctoral offices, as well as an immigration attorney. It draws on the experiences of current and former postdocs who have traveled to the United States to do their postdoctoral training.
All signs point toward an upcoming large-scale Israeli/U.S. attack on Lebanon and Syria and all the sycophantic mainstream media are manipulating the public as we speak to gather support for a “war to end all wars.”
Lyme disease is on the rise. I’ve been caught by ticks firsthand and know how unnerving it can be. Mix up about 40 drops of tea tree oil with around 12-16 oz of water and spray it on. Even if you don’t encounter any ticks, you’ll smell uncharacteristically good.
Have you ever been on a hike admiring the great views, gazing up at the tips of the trees, listening to the rustling of the leaves… and suddenly found yourself completely alone and lost? Naturally, the situation would give way to some level of panic and concern for your safety. While being lost in the woods can be a frightening experience, surviving alone in the wild is generally a matter of common sense, patience, and wisely using the gifts that nature provides. If you want to know how to survive in the woods, just follow these steps.
I discovered Mr. Rawles’ site a couple years ago, and you are correct! It is fantastic, but I am glad to learn about more sites, though I do visit SHTF often. Not strictly survival sites, but fantastic for financial/economic information, I highly recommend http://www.zerohedge.com and http://www.dollarcollapse.com and also for all the news that is fit (or not) to print, http://www.rense.com. There are not enough hours in the day for me to read all the wonderful information on the internet.
The first thing that you must tell yourself is to take a deep breath and try to control your anxiety and panic. In all likelihood, you are in a much less dangerous situation that you may believe at the moment. If you keep a cool head, you will soon start seeing ways to get out of the bind.
