Disclaimer: I can’t verify the claims made on the site I’m going to share with you. I’m going on their word only. At the bottom of the page is a description of how the rankings were made. I was happy to see a focus on cost per pound and cost per calorie. We both agree – advertised serving sizes alone are meaningless! You want the most nutrition per serving, and the best price, with the longest shelf life.

The Zombie Apocalypse Response Team concept, as proposed by the CDC when they were deciding on a “vehicle” to promote general preparedness, has taken root. I was forwarded an article from a buddy, and it, there are all kinds of pictures of ZARV and ZRT units. Pretty funny stuff, though one is gruesome enough to qualify for a Halloween prop. The effort that went into a few of these speaks to a desire to look very official.
One of them

Here an interesting video from 08/14/2014, just two weeks ago. It is a live recording of Houston News92 FM. “Ask the Chief”.
Chief McClellan says they are continuing to investigate this.
Take it for whatever it it’s worth to you. The reports of radical Muslim “training camps” in the US are plentiful. I’ve seen a few videos of them that could be taken either way. Do we have infiltrators in the US? I’m sure we do. Do we have

I’ve been calling Vladimir Putin “The New Soviet” for some time, now. His dreams of a reintegrated collection of satellite states into the New USSR is well documented, if not well known. Over the last four or five months, he has been using the term “New Russia” to describe the region of eastern Ukraine and the Crimea. It is a historical term, with great nationalistic weight. It appeals to ethnic Russian minorities in the region and to Russians in general.

Say Hello to the CCCP
Ukraine is Putin’s Target
The above are two articles I wrote sharing information about Putin’s personal dream to rebuild the USSR. He wants all of Ukraine. Crimea was the first stop, largely because it was the easiest to nab. In bold and traditional style, he stirred up local dissent via infiltrators, and used that as his excuse for sauntering in and “helping” ethnic Russians take control of their lives. Remember Romania? In exchange, Crimea

A lot of preppers are looking for ways to protect equipment from EMP /CME /E-Bomb events. Discussions on-line almost always devolve into a moray of opinions on how to build a “Faraday Cage” to provide this protection. The assumption is that such a barrier will block all effects of the three events mentioned previously.
Faraday cages are good examples of the perfect conductor, in that the conducted charge is equally spread over the outer layer

Been seeing some hits on the smart phone apps page. I’m curious as to just what kind of apps preppers are looking for. If you care to share your thoughts, reply to this post, or e-mail me LP@ this site….
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
