• Use it to desalinate seawater. Just boil seawater underneath a tented poncho to catch the vapour and produce the water through condensation. This will separate the salt from the water, making it drinkable.

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. Who…
Not my personal “go to” weapon of choice, but I’m also not a tactical pen-wielding master. I’ve seen videos on tactical pens being used for self-defense, and they are lethal in the right set of hands.
Knowing how to use snares and traps for survival trapping purposes can help you deal with one of the most challenging pursuits in a longer term survival situation: the ability to obtain protein. (read more)

Contained in an ABS-plastic waterproof case, this survival kit holds an array of key survival tools, including Tinder-Quik fire starters, 150-pound-test braided nylon cord, military-spec stainless steel wire, and an emergency sewing and fishing kit.
The growing popularity of the American Redoubt Movement is undeniable. With the exception of chilly Wyoming, in-migration from other states of the Union is now booming. To begin, I want to make it clear that I don’t take credit for any of the success of the Redoubt movement. In fact the movement had begun long before I put a name to it, and before I articulated the prevailing goals and the mindset of the freedom-loving newcomers. But I am glad to see so-called Red States turning a deeper shade of red.
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.

Glow sticks come in all shape, form, and colors. The ones you want are not those party things that you can wear like a necklace. You want to buy the ones that have a high light output. These glow sticks can last for years in your kit. However, it is advisable that you change them before they reach their expiration date.
A bit of a luxury item in a survival scenario but drinking water out of your hands is not convenient. Plus, if you happen to have coffee, soup, or freeze-dried meals you’ll need a bowl or cup to eat these meals.
Option one: Embrace it. Listen to the song all the way through, at full volume, ideally singing along. The idea is that by confronting your brain with the full version, your earworm will end when the song does.
The dust has settled and the First 72 Hours have passed. Follow along as I build a long term plan via Prudent Prepping. I’m always looking for things to add to my first aid kits, as long as the items are small and useful in many different ways. I fo…
The UST StarFlash mirror has a star shaped sighting lens, to make it even more user friendly. Look through the lens at your signal target. Sweep the mirror VERY slowly right to left, and up and down. This will sweep the beam across your target, and the lens will glow when you’ve aimed the beam correctly.
If you do fall, make an air pocket ASAP. Try to fall in a rigid fetal position (arms over your face chest) to attempt to make room for your lungs to breathe. One man survived the 2003 Station nightclub fire in Rhode Island by doing this and securing a small supply of fresh air through the blaze.
As anyone from a military background knows, intelligence is everything in emergencies. Without critical information such as weather conditions or roadblock locations, you may find yourself moving in the path of danger – or moving when you should be staying.
This one hits the spot for family gatherings or even gathering around to watch movies or sports events on television. It’s a little heartier and tastier than the basic recipe. Another variation we sometimes make is to substitute a can of meat/beef…
You can catch up on all the information we already have out there. If you don’t see what you are looking for, you can even suggest something to write about that we haven’t thought of yet.

Foolishly I bought a tactical pen on line from this company some three months ago. they duly debited my PayPal account but the item never arrived. To make matters worse the company through their agent CLICKBANK continue to debit my PP account on a monthly basis. This…
I can’t afford a personal locator beacon. I had to settle for a lifejacket strobe light that can be seen even in the daylight. It runs on 2 AA rechargeable batteries. Amazon has several different kinds available.
The ex-SAS man recommends peeing on a t-shirt and wrapping it round your head. Sounds fun, right? Well, it’s super cooling and will give you a big energy boost as a result, so it could just save your life if you’re super dehydrated.
Another form of fire-starting because you can never have too many. If you currently have regular matches in with your survival gear, you making a mistake. If regular matches get wet, they are worthless.
I wrote Gardening in a Failed Economy after spending three summers working on gardens that can be made just about any were, using junk that you can scrounge by the side of the road, or at the local recycling place. the idea is that as the long term economy gets worse people, especially old people are going to have a hard time affording food (or any thing else for that matter). The book isn’t some cut and paste Internet BS, it is 3 years of my life, I proud of it, and I’m willing to put my money were my mouth is.

Regardless of what it looks like, a wilderness survival shelter should embrace these essential principles. It should provide insulation and protection from all elements. It should include a heart source, whether that is a fire, the sun, or trapping body heat. It should be placed in a good location – think high and dry. And lastly, it should offer comfort and sanctuary. After all, this will be your new home.
