– Medical stuff – take the Quick clot off, I’m trained in how to use it, and I have had it used on me – it can cause more harm than good, the mil is taking it out of our IFACs because of this -use good old tampons and maxi pads instead.
I know nothing about survival, which is likely why I think this kit is great. I haven’t actually used it (and hopefully never will!!) but living in a potential earthquake zone, I thought I should get something for the car. Seems to be pretty comprehensive for short term survival. What I really love is the guide that comes with it. It’s really well easy to understand and assumes nothing about your prior experience or knowledge. Does not take up much space in the glove compartment.
Housing prices in the United States continue to rise at unprecedented rates forcing many into poverty. This worsening epidemic is explained well in a video by The Money GPS and it’s been engineered this way.
Your body will not last more than three days without water. If you are lucky enough to be near a body of freshwater – good for you, just make sure to boil before quenching your thirst. No water in sight? Continue your search and construct a rain catcher or water still.

There are a ton of plant species in the wilderness. Many of these plants have excellent medicinal properties. Crab apples, for instance, have an astringent effect that can help heal wounds. Pine resin has an excellent antiseptic property. If you can find eucalyptus leaves, you can burn them to get rid of mosquitoes and other bugs around your campsite.
While yes, chapped lips are far from a prepper’s first priority, these little sticks of balm are worth far more than their ability to heal lips. That tube of lip balm can do everything from protecting your knife from rusting to helping you start a fire. Let’s look at some of the ways lip balm can help you in … Continue Reading →
I have ordered several items from Survival Life and have gotten them in a reasonable amount of time. I have never been charged for anything, but the items I have ordered and have not been charged a membership fee. I am very happy with all of the items I have ordered from them.
The basic physical instinct is survival. You eat for your survival. You drink for your survival. You play, read et cetera for your leisure. These come after the basic survival instincts. Subconsciously, whatever we do, is somehow related to it.
Our final goal is to transform this blog into that virtual place where anyone interested in survival and preparation can find all the answers they’re looking for.

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.
Today is the birthday of Momofuku Ando (born 1910), the Taiwanese-Japanese inventor of instant noodles and Cup-O-Noodles, born in Wu Baifu, Taiwan. (He died in 2007.) His inventions have saved counted thousands of American college students from starv…
Did you know that there are around 40 tick species that can cause paralysis in their hosts? While this most-commonly affects dogs, thousands of people become exposed each year as well.

I too am using Home Depot orange buckets. Very good sealing gasketed lids and the price is right. I contacted the manufacturer and they assured me they are not food grade. My bags and oxygen absorbers arrive tomorrow, and it begins…..
Don’t lose your lunch. Never eat a big meal before a big drop, warns John Cooper, a professional ride tester who braves up to 100 theme park thrills a day at the U.K.’s Drayton Manor. Eat light, wait 90 minutes between chow and coaster, and face forward throughout the ride to avoid the spins.

He criticizes their business model of offering a ‘free’ knife if you just pay postage because you then get upsold some other stuff…well that’s business for you. Hook someone in with a free / low priced offer then upsell them some more stuff.

Definitely don’t say: “Do you know who I am?!”/“My taxes pay your salary!”/ “Don’t you have anything better to do?!” Officers agree: Not being a jerk is the minimum requirement to getting out of a ticket.
Honestly, we thought it was fantastic. As a 2 person team, (photographer and business partner), we still found it super beneficial and in fact, I think it would be impossible for one person to go, and just ‘bring back’ the info. You had to be there to really get into everything. I think it also allowed me, as the business partner, to get a way better understanding and appreciation of the artistic side of what the photographer does, and understand better how much the assistant role and organizational role helps in allowing him the space to be creative. It really helped us both understand each other’s roles in a whole new perspective.
We try to be as helpful to as many people as possible by having a diverse range of topics. You can look through our topic index and see items such as Homesteading Tips, Alternative Energy, Natural Remedies, and Self Defense.

Okay, we know, this is getting a bit ridiculous now. Bear Grylls is a pretty odd guy sometimes. You have to admit though, using a dead seal as a wetsuit isn’t quite as ridiculous as dying because you refused to use a dead seal as a wetsuit.

Let’s face it: This is a survival knife for a worst case scenario and you find yourself living in a lawless land and need a serious knife for self defense. The US Marine KA-BAR is designed for combat — and proven in combat — and carried by many U.S. Marines into past wars. Please note: This isn’t a survival knife for a weekend recreationist; a forest service official or fish and game warden will possibly confiscate it if they know you’re carrying it, so be sure to check local laws before simply packing one into the wilderness on your next backpacking trip. The good news about carrying this for a worst case survival scenario? Not only is it a knife proven in combat but something you can also use to gut big game or filet a squirrel, possum, trout, salmon or any other critter that you’re willing to eat to survive. (If this KA-BAR is a bit too military for your tastes go with a good folding knife like this Kershaw as a more civilian option and one you might buy for your teen kids as well.)
