“If you had NO preps, were starting out fresh, living in an apartment in a moderate 100,000 sized city with an “average” paying job, the usual amount of debt mortage, car payment which left you with little at the end of the month, and essentially NO prep skills such as farming, animal husbandry, medical, electrical, HVAC, motor/mechanic but suddenly had $100,000 to spend, how would you spend it on preps, given ground rules that not more than half could be spent on land and / or land development.”
This morning I was in bed, but awake, when I heard my chiwawa mix (Faith) come through the house into my bedroom and set down beside the bed. When it’s early and she wants to go out she will ease into the bedroom as quietly as she can, then set and stare at me to see […]
Today’s non-fiction writing contest entry was written Judy W On August 18 I received an email about a group of Survivalist nationwide going off the grid for the weekend of the 22 the 23 ,the 24.It said,no electric,no,cell,no Internet, no city water, no gas stations, no stores. My first thought was yes – Great idea! I believe in […]
Question asked by Robert H I have thought long and hard on this dilemma. When the fecal matter contacts the oscillating air movement device, what is going to be the fate of the elderly living in assisted care or the nursing homes. Many are there because family wants nothing to do with them. Some will […]
I’ve had so many complaints and whines about my moving this section to it’s own dedicated webpage, that I’ve decided to move it back here, at least temporarily (I’m not sure if I’ll keep publishing the other site).
It’s a shame really, the new site could have been a great resource for you with loads of information and the way that it was set-up, I could easily add news, information and my personal views throughout the day as new stuff became available, allowing me to keep everyone better informed and up-to-date.
I worked hard setting it up and spent a lot of money getting it started and promoting it, but it doesn’t look like it’s going to catch on with readers of this blog…
Our health system is set up to care for only a small number of patients at any given time. During an emergency most facilities are quickly over ran and unable to deal with the influx of wounded received. The Oklahoma City Bombing, LA Riots and a number of recent natural disasters have demonstrated this fact […]
By Hoop When I retired after what seemed like a lifetime of waiting on the public I had the idea I would finally get to stay home and do what I wanted to do. I wanted to write about things that sparked my interest. I joined writing groups online, I wrote small articles for different […]
by Joe Alton, M.D. of www.doomandbloom.net The recent earthquake in California wasn’t THE big one, but it was a big one. With damage to infrastructure, buildings, and homes, it underscores just how vulnerable we are to major tremors. The question is: How can you protect yourself and your family if you’re near the epicenter of […]
I would like to thank everyone who voted for my new site on The Top Preppers Sites page, thank you (and feel free to vote again).
So far the site is doing great with over 15,563 hits and growing – but for some reason, I’m having trouble getting other site owners and bloggers to mention it or add it to their blog rolls or links pages.
I’ve emailed everyone on my blog list in the footer of The Daily Collapse Report, but so far only two have returned the favor or even emailed me back.
Bam, Bam even took it on herself to email Matt Drudge (Drudge Report at DRUDGE@DRUDGEREPORT.COM ) to suggest that he add Daily Collapse Report to his links but as suspected no link from him. Thank you Bam, Bam for making the effort, It’s appreciated…
You work in a large hospital, and the world has been thrown into utter chaos. Unable to receive supplies in the foreseeable future, the hospitals current stock will only last for days. Would you steal the remaining supplies for personal use and be prepared, or leave the supplies to be depleted by the public? Why?
As a woman in her middle sixties, I’ve always been frugal. We baby boomers were raised to be frugal by parents who were born and raised during the depression era. Our mothers taught us early how to cook with what we had, usually fresh from the farm. If we didn’t live on a farm, we had a relative who owned one and we visited them often, learning the ways of that kind of life style.
We were taught how to can the food we raised and we were taught how to make butter, milk cows, ring a chicken’s neck and prepare it for eating or freezing. We were taught how to plant gardens, how to control insects and what to eat for any illness that came our way.
Our mothers also taught us to sew and mend our clothing. They also taught us the value of wearing things until they couldn’t be mended anymore. Even then, we used them for rags for cleaning one thing or another or cut them up to make warm quilts. We were taught to reuse and repurpose just about everything we had.
By Schatzie Ohio As most people seem to like Mexican food I thought I would send this posting to you. These recipes were given to me by my Mexican friends over the years. The first recipe is in keeping with the recent bean posts. The second recipe is for the rice that pairs nicely with the […]
Here is a question that could be posed to the pack. Since some of us on the over side of 50+. Have they thought who they would pass their preps on to, and know that they would be put to use instead of being given a way or sold. Credit for this should go to […]
“A prudent person foresees the danger ahead and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences.”
You may find other survival blogs and prepper websites giving the impression that you need fancy freeze-dried foods, a massive gun collection, a Hummer equipped with a gun turret and a 50 acre retreat secluded in some remote mountain top of Idaho. Although this may seem attractive on some level, it is not possible for the average Joe (or the average Jane). More importantly, you don’t need a six-figure income to help your family become better prepared. We show you how...
