Last week’s madcap unscripted biparitsan meeting on gun issues bewildered conservatives in the House and Senate. This session made Senator-For-Life Diane Feinstein gleefullly gesticulate like an old crone. Either President Trump had caved in, or perhaps he was cleverly attempting to overload the proposed omnibus legislation package with poison pills. (Some have suggested that he wanted a repeat of the doomed DACA Bill.)
Now, love is something that makes every one happy. Everyone likes to be loved. Yeah… so being loved can be the purpose of our life.. But, why would people love us if we don’t love others? If we don’t care about others? If we harm or hurt or kill others? There comes the concept of loving others…. Ahh… Fair enough! I thought….
However, there is no substitute for experience in any outdoor situation, and your reaction in a survival situation depends on your education and training. Always keep in mind that a wilderness survival situation can happen to you. Be prepared and plan to survive.
I’ve had unbearable physical and emotional pain in my life. I lived through a life threatening illness, was bullied as a child, survived divorce and great financial problems. I worked hard to change things and find a solution. I knew things would work out because whenever I took action to get relief something good always came out of it.
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.
Coconut water contains vital nutrients and sugar that can keep you fed and alive for long. If you can find coconut trees, make sure that you use the water as food. However, remember that if you drink too much coconut water, it can give you the runs! In that case, just eat some powdered charcoal. It can help you ease your stomach woes.
Do your research first. Don’t just trek off into the wilderness; get a solid understanding of your surroundings first. Studying a map of the area where you’re going — and making sure to bring it with you — will increase your chances of not getting lost tremendously. Educate yourself about the flora and fauna of the area you are exploring. Knowledge of the local plants and animals can save your life (for example knowing which plants are edible or knowing where the local colony of rattlesnakes make haven).
If you find yourself stuck in the wilderness during the winter, do not eat snow unless you fully melt and warm it first! If you eat snow your body temperature will drop and you risk hypothermia or death. An on-the-go method of warming snow is to place it in your water bottle and place that between your jacket and clothing.
It is astounding to think of how many injuries, accidents, and even fatalities could be prevented on a yearly basis if outdoor survivors were to simply acknowledge the importance of creating a safe and sound shelter.
most sites recommend starting with getting food resources for 1 week, then work to a month, then to a year. No one can do it all at once. You need to set priorities and make lists of items you need. The main thing is to START NOW !!
I ordered the Richter 15 knife (paid shipping cost only) and surprisingly, it arrived in just a few days! I like that! When I opened it up, it was slower than I anticipated and it didn’t fully open. To me, no big deal because of the price & it’s a sharp, sturdy knife. Then I saw the Richter30 advertised with an additional 25% off! I clicked the button, then another & the back button & quickly made a huge mess of my bank account! I called the company and the gal was awesome.
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.)
If you prepare the animal for cooking away from your shelter, you will be much safer. Also, don’t let uneaten food open in the shelter. Make sure that you clean up all the bones and other half-eaten food from your shelter.
Real binoculars are for the wilderness. Get yourself a pair of real binoculars. Outdoor Life rated several binoculars, most coming in at over $1000, with one priced at $2700. That is steep! But Outdoor Life did give a high rating to a cheaper pair — The Alpen Apex XP 8×42 is priced at about $300 and received Outdoor Life’s Great Buy tag. If you have the money to spend, sure, go ahead and spend top dollar, buy the best of the best. You will get more bang for your buck. But you’ll get a lot of bang for your buck as well with the Alpen Apex 8×42 for a lot less.
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…..
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 need the best survival tools to, well, you know, survive.

One great way to identify some edible plants is by studying up a little bit. You can always find books and resources on the internet that can educate you to identify these poisonous plants. So, if you have some time, read up!
To trim a survival kit down to its top 10 essentials is to reveal the utmost necessary items for ad hoc shelter, warmth, communication, navigation, and sustenance in the deep backwoods. Here, then, are three survivalists’ lean lists of gear you should not be without in any wilderness situation.
If you are having insect bite problems, dock leaves can be of great help. Just pulverize them and apply directly on the bite. The anti-histamine properties of the leaves can assist in easing the itch and pain
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/…
Finding yourself in a survival situation can be extremely unsettling. I mean it’s not like you practice getting in such cases every day, right? Most people can get very nervous and panic in situations like these. This outdoor survival skill can alone save your life in many situations.
The tips that we just saw can work fine during the day, but what if you want to locate the north during the night? Well, the best way to do it by finding the north star. Locating the north star in a bright cloudless sky is easy.
• My next tip maybe common sense to some, but figured it’s still worth noting: for better maintenance of keeping balance, it’s best to keep heavier things on top and the lighter items at the bottom. What this will do is help you with stability while you are on the move.
I use my chromebook to store a few survival docs, topographic maps and personal data on it and charge it on the move using external power pack or a solar phone charger (it uses micro usb which is just awesome). IMO it rocks but I can understand your reservations.

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.
As some of you may know, Cape Town is running out of water. The local government has quite literally stated that in less than 100 days, they may have to turn off the taps entirely and water will be rationed out at designated outposts. Here’s the thing folks, South Africa …

The Svord Peasant knife is a century old design that was brought back to the mainstream by B.W. Baker. This is a knife I have used and owned for a good long while, but have always been on the fence with regards to reviewing it. In practical ter…
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.
It’s been a couple of months since I mentioned my other website MDCreekmore.com; it’s a homesteading news site that is updated every day with new links to the best homesteading articles that have been … Continue Reading about Prepper News and Notes For Wednesday, February 28, 2018
