A WHOLE lotta traffic lately on EMP, who can and can’t, how it works and what can be done…. Traffic on boards, Twitter, Facebook and some unofficial official sources and circles.
Why all the noise? I won’t get into that here, but I’ll point you to some articles on this blog. A thinking man might, if initiated properly, consider the current state of technology on both sides of the equation, political will power and governmental inertia. He might then weigh

Choosing footwear is a personal choice. It’s just that some choices are garbage. When you find yourself foot-mobile, there is very little room for failure. Injured feet absolutely will slow you down, limit the terrain you may cover and potentially make you ill (or dead). That said, I’m going to share with you my personal beliefs regarding footwear on the move.
Whatever it is you put on your feet, it must begin with socks. The material of choice for many

I saw a notice on one page about an individual looking to take a young son out on a hike. It is a three-day hike meant to teach a few things and share skills. What this father was looking to do was gather information useful to his trip so he could ensure its success.
Deciding what activities to include can be difficult. There are so many options to consider, and they can’t all be included. Being as this is a

I just finished reading a blog post by POTRBlog regarding a Pandemic Alert. According to POTRBlog, Tuesday, July 8 2014,
The Defense Logistics Agency has placed a no-bid order for Influenza Vaccine based on “Unusual and Compelling Urgency“. The order states that 70% of the vaccine order must be met by August and the remainder in September. Much of the information about the order is “redacted” aka SECRET.
The no-bid order can be used where a supply of any product

In a somewhat unusual day back in August 2012, I had a funny thought. It was about those who walk about with some openly controversial tee shirt proclaiming their political thoughts or some other such beliefs. They move about, unconcerned about what others think, and quite often risk having some jerk smack them from behind. Their movements through shopping crowds, or on sidewalks, place them where they might have good exposure, and also where an argument might leave them in

June 6, 2014 – Off to the right you’ll see a link to the Prepper Comms Network. It’s our attempt, once again, at establishing our own social network.
Why? Well, for one thing, other networks get cluttered with things that have little to do with this life style, or even simple preparedness. I know, you can chose to un-freind, or un-follow, and reduce the amount of garbage that shows up, but even then, the exposure is to the other 98%
I got an e-mail from Emergency Essentials advertising some sales they regularly promote. These things show up often enough to not be a surprise. While there are usually some good deals, I’m not always in sync with them as per our buying plans. That wasn’t the case today….
In this one, there was a deal on Provident Pantry “Freeze Dried Diced Beef.” We have been using a Mountain House ground beef product with good success, and were looking at replacing

Back in July of 2012, on Survivalist Boards, a new thread was started. The Wise Foods vs Mountain House Smack Down caught my attention PDQ. The nut of the story is that Mountain House decided to take Wise Foods to task and paid for a third party testing company (Columbia Food Laboratories) to verify Wise Foods’ claims to extended shelf life. The tests came back, according to Mountain House, showing that there was a significant amount of O2 left in

I’m exhausted. I’ve spent the better part of a day reading and reading, and watching videos, about tilapia and its inherent omega-3 : omega-6 “imbalance”. I would give you link after tiring link, but I’m too beat to do that. I’ll give you the meat of what I found instead.
Farmed fish have problems. It’s that simple. The unnatural diet fed to these things from feed producers include ingredients that allow for the toxic buildup of chemicals, inappropriate fats and

Added some new EXPOs for 2014, and one for 2015. Looks like a good year for the Expo community. If it finishes strong, 2015 could be huge – especially if the elections wind up as a catalyst in people’s lives.
If you know of any other Expos, please let me know and I’ll add them.
