“Hunger kills more people every year than AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis combined.” This is according to the World Food Program. There are a majority of factors at play in this ongoing battle for food security. An increased demand for food in general, higher fuel prices, under-investment in agricultural productivity, and a multitude […]
TSHTF. If you are a Prepper you know what this acronym means. Let’s say today is the day—TSHTF—now you have some really tough decisions to make, the first of which is “should I stay or should I go?” To be frank, that decision should have already been made.

Questions from non-preppers: Why bother practicing shooting a 2-inch group at 300 yards?

Why would I need to be able to dress a wound while not causing further infection? I’d […]

What’s better than a Ninja? A super black Ninja that not even light can escape. Scientists have developed a new material called Vantablack. It breaks all previous records for light absorption using carbon nanotubes (10,000 times thinner than a human hair). Vantablack is as close as we’ve come to having a synthetic black hole. This […]

This is the urine version of the old bottled water or water in a plastic bag fire starting trick. But it’s a good one to know and one more reason why carrying plastic wrap or a plastic baggy in your survival kit is a good idea.
At a recent preparedness expo I observed a demonstration of an “in home” freeze drying machine. Up until now, freeze-drying has been the one food preservation option not available to most preppers. We can dehydrate, smoke, pickle, cure and can, but we have to pay a high price for freeze-dried foods. Freeze-dried survival foods are […]
