This year I’m going to try another way to grow potatoes. I’m going to plant my seed potatoes in a barrel. Several barrels. The past few years I’ve grown them the traditional way, in garden rows. For a homesteader, growing potatoes that way is a bit tedious to say the …

Make sure that you eat well before going into the woods, and tell someone where you are going, when you expect to return, when to know to call the police, etc. Don’t make the mistake that James Franco makes in 127, the survival movie based on a true story — make sure someone knows exactly where you’re going and when. That way, if you do not return in time, someone will realize that you are lost, quickly alert rescuers, and be able to tell them where to start looking for you.

When it comes to survival tips and techniques, the more you know, the better. While you can’t possibly prepare for every single thing that is out there, you can try your best to be as aware of many of them as you can. Sometimes these bits and pieces of knowledge can seem quite like useless trivia at times, but don’t be fooled. The knowledge is there not to be useful ALL the time, but rather to be there when you need it the most. That is why we put together a massive list of 50 Survival Tips and Tricks for the outdoors.

by Brian Ford The debate over the place of firearms in modern American society continues to rage, much as it has for decades. While many arguments focus on specific types of arms, some question … Continue Reading about The Positive Impacts of Law-Abiding Citizens Owning Firearms

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!

I know that many of you are absolutely horrified of any type of social media but for those who aren’t I’d like to let you know about my social media pages for this blog. If you use any of the … Continue Reading about Prepper News and Notes For Friday, February 22, 2018

I think having a satellite phone should be on this list. Once you buy one you can purchase emergency minutes that last for two years, then you re-up. The phone will last forever, and it guarantees you can make a call in any situation, and they aren’t as bulky as they once were. There actually a device no bigger than my wallet that can turn your smart phone into the satellite phone….preparedness matters!!

Don’t rely upon modern technology like cell phones, GPS units, or radios to save you if you are lost. Take one with you if it’s available. But remember that these items are not foolproof; have a backup plan.

The best thing to do when broke is blog about something you are passionate about that you know you can be monetized. It’s cheap to get started, no need to buy content, no need to outsource. You’ll have a much better time staying focused and dedicated to it.

That paracord bracelet you received from a survival-minded friend is a wonderful thing to bring on your next hiking or camping adventure. It is also a fantastic item to place in your bug-out bag or 72-hour emergency kit. Take a moment to review some of the many uses for the paracord bracelet to further your survival knowledge.

Some of you requested a CD version of Way to Go, so I got crafty and made you one! I spray-painted and screen-printed and hand-numbered all 100 copies with love. Get yours here in the store before they’re gone! http://loudandclearprinting.storenvy.com/products/15401532-way-to-go-cd

Look, I had to include one big-baller survival tool, and it’s appropriate that it’s by Leatherman. This bracelet carries the Leatherman promise of quality (let’s note that 25-year guarantee again) but it also serves as a kickass and manly bracelet. A goddamn steel-tread bracelet. Wear it to the bar, wear it to work, wear it camping, wear it while you bone-down. Just, uh, be careful with that last one. That’s because this bracelet contains 29 screwdriver and wrench tools, along with a cutting hook, a bottle opener and even a sim card tool and glass breaker. Now that’s fashion.

It does what it’s supposed to…no more and no less. It’s an emergency knife that can be carried discreetly in your wallet until you need it. It seems sharp enough and once the handle is folded stays in place so you don’t have to worry about cutting yourself. It’s not heavy-duty and not as easy as a regular pocket knife, but it’ll do well enough in a pinch.

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.

Keep everything you’ve got, because the second plans go south, these items will become your most prized possessions and could save your life. Don’t underestimate the worthiness of even the smallest knick knack-inn Gary Paulson’s classic, The Hatchet, Brian Robeson used his shoe lace to make a nifty bow and arrow for survival!

If you keep focusing the bright light onto some dry kindle, you will soon start a fire. The focal length of your improvised device is smaller than a magnifying glass so, you will have to hold this improvised device about 1-2 inches from the kindling.

A compass is also an item of critical importance when traveling in the woods. You can point your compass in the direction of the city or wherever you are embarking from, and remember the direction the compass’s pointer points in. That way, if you’re lost in the woods, all you have to do is turn around until the compass points in the correct direction, and then follow your way back.

Pros need to outweigh cons. Is there a water source? Can you find food? Is the area ideal for signaling help? If these elements are lacking, determine if you can safely move to another spot. That said, the USAF Manual notes that it’s usually better to stay put.

I’ll have to take your word for it. I scrolled down through their FB page, but couldn’t find any offers. I signed up for their list and no offers yet (though I imagine they wait for an opportune time). I did see the member’s area offer of $19.95, which I’m assuming also contains upsells.

This free app has so much practical information that it goes beyond survival. It’s extremely useful for recreational camping and hiking also. It’s well written and very useful for the casual or hardcore outdoorsman. Hasn’t been updated in forever but it’s good enough as is.

I don’t think it’s possible to carry all these items on one’s back! Maybe you could manage carrying them all in a vehicle, but even then it might be pushing it. Definitely the list is meant to be picked and chosen from, and a lot of the items are redundant; as you said “this or that” rather than “have one of each.” I just tried to make the list as all-inclusive as possible, just as a reminder that some things are available, even if they’re not particularly ideal/portable, or what most people would choose to have.

Photo by Steven DepoloBandanas take up little or no space, have multiple uses, and can even be worn as jewelry. As a medical supply, use it as a tourniquet, wound dressing, smoke mask, or sling. Use bandanas to wrap around and protect delicate items such as electronics and sunglasses. Use one to wash with or to wash dishes with, to pre-filter water or as a napkin. Protect your head from the sun, make a sweatband, or tie back your hair. If you become lost or disoriented, a brightly colored bandana makes an easy-to-spot signal flag; tear strips to mark your trail.

How To Make a Gas Mask From a Two-Liter Bottle. In this video, Black Scout Survival makes a gas mask with a bottle, a can, rubber bands, cotton rounds, duct tape, medical tape, and activated charcoal.

I don’t know if this has been shared or not, but Penicillin and Amoxicillin should be included in the list of medicines, along with cephalosporin (Keflex). All of these I believe can still be found over the counter as farming supplies. Be careful, however, as the dosage for humans will be majorly different than that on the label. I would suggest getting a dosage chart for each antibiotic.

Survival Power: Snare placement can be a key factor to whether or not you catch anything; your ability to know where to set snares relies on you learning and practicing basic trapping skills for capturing small game. Baiting traps with common game foods like nuts, seeds, and berries (and artificial baits) can help boost your snaring success.

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.

Rey, send me an e-mail at distributedliving@yahoo.com and I will send you a download for free, if you read it and think I’m just riping people off, delete the book, and tell every one you meet not to buy it. If you think my efforts are sincere, paypal me the $15.

The propane heater gave me pause, as I thought I was looking at a BOB list. The long fishing pole started to make me think you’re crazy. The canned food, wine and liquor are what made it dawn on me that this list is obviously not intended to cover one specific type of kit.

The hazard function, conventionally denoted λ {\displaystyle \lambda } , is defined as the event rate at time t conditional on survival until time t or later (that is, T ≥ t). Suppose that an item has survived for a time t and we desire the probability that it will not survive for an additional time dt:

The survival function must be non-increasing: S(u) ≤ S(t) if u ≥ t. This property follows directly because T>u implies T>t. This reflects the notion that survival to a later age is only possible if all younger ages are attained. Given this property, the lifetime distribution function and event density (F and f below) are well-defined.

There’s also plenty of cheap, yet high quality survival gear that’s a great price whether or not it’s on sale. If you’re interested, take a look at what we think the best bang-for-buck survival gear products are at the $5, $10, $15, $20, & $25 price points.
