This has been a miserable weather week here on our survival homesteading retreat, fellow preppers. It has been not only extremely cold, but the wind has been so bitter it stings your face and makes your eyes water when outside working. Winter, in all of its wretched glory, has arrived in my little corner of Appalachia. We did not accomplish…

On T.V. plenty of survivalists, commandos, preppers and celebrity survival instructors have proffered all kind of advice for mentally processing the situation you find yourself in. From tried and true classic acronyms to conspicuously “branded” and patented methodology, the info these personalities pump out for the sake of the cameras varies wildly in quality, with only a few exceptions. One…

Old wives’ tales. Hogwash. Myth. Bunk. Pigeon religion. Bull. It goes by many names, but no matter what you call it, information and technique that, for whatever reason, is flat-out wrong but still persists is present in any corner of society.

Staying clean and fresh is not just a civil nicety. Far from it, hygiene is a mandate for good health in good times or bad, and a lack of hygiene will quickly result in debilitating illness, disease or other maladies which can sap morale or even lead to incapacitation. Considering how simple and effective even an austere grooming and bathing…

Should You Trust or Count on the Police Post SHTF?

5 comment(s)

It is easy to imagine a post-SHTF scenario entailing a mass of terrorized people fleeing the confines of city and society into the relatively untouched wilderness, turning existence into something between “The Call of the Wild” and “Lord of the Flies.” Man vs. Nature, with the occasional bad guy marauder or mugger to be dealt with.

Ah, gun control. If there was ever a beat-the-undead-horse political activism trope, it would definitely be gun control. The apple of their eye pie in the sky cause that unites all the fractious, cannibalistic Leftist rabble-rousers and elites from the poo-caked hills of San Francisco to the gleaming skyscraper turned supervillian lairs of New York City. Thanks to the election…

Prepping takes a certain level of investment, in effort, time and resources. Those resources usually take the form of cash. Even minimalist prepping with an emphasis on skills is plenty expensive enough, and full-tilt end-of-the-world readiness can easily equate to an additional mortgage payment every month. But there are no two ways around it: for some things, if you want…
