With the threat of Ebola spreading from Africa, an open southern border between the U.S. and Mexico, an increase of drug resistant bacteria, and other emerging health threats, I thought it would be a good idea to visit and re-read some of our best medical postings from the past couple of years. How to Make […]
I read this “best on the net” blog regularly and have posted articles as well as my comments. It has become a routine part of my daily events to read the great posts from so many friendly folks. Thanks to your posts I’ve learned a lot. Your comments reinforce my own strongly held beliefs about the need to prepare! So, when something occurs that kind of shakes my convictions, it’s a big deal to me and of course must be dealt with.
The other day I was sitting there in our root cellar, going over the inventory list. The radio was playing that great Garth Brooks song “If Tomorrow Never Comes” when I was suddenly disturbed by an errant thought: What if it really doesn’t come? What if all this time, effort and expense is for naught? Having read MD’s posting “What if the collapse never comes?” I was sure that my sudden insecurity was due to nothing more than a subconscious thought process, bouncing around in my head, melding the song and the article together.
Silent Weapons – well maybe not completely silent but silent enough to not draw attention to yourself… The value of silence under certain survival conditions could literally mean the difference between life and death for the survivor.

In a world post-collapse, supplies that aren’t replenished eventually run out. When things calm down to the point where a local economy can start flourishing, what type of business or venture would you like to pursue in order to help rebuild society and take care of your needs?
Today’s non-fiction writing contest entry, “Stone Tools : Using a mortar and pestle” was written by Blake Holliday This to me, maybe to others is an interesting part of history. We all know of things like the pyramids in Egypt and South America where the stones are so well dressed that a blade from a pocket knife won’t fit […]
Growing Vegetables Indoors for Beginners Keeping your garden safe and out of sight, from hungry looters and refuges after the collapse could mean the difference between life and death for the survivor. If your retreat can be seen from the street and anyone passing by, then having a traditional garden planted in rows is an […]

The purpose of this particular dissertation is to scare the crap out of you, and thus move you off the pot. Time is short, and the storm clouds are gathering over the Middle East. Our southern border is a free-for-all, drug cartels and gangs have a viable presence in virtually every major American city, and the poser-in-chief thinks he was elected king and is doing everything he can think of to dismantle this country.
“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...
