Today is the 70th Anniversary of the most intriguing series of correspondence in military history. On December 22nd, 1944 the 101st Airborne Division, under the acting command of Brigadier General Anthony McAuliffe, found itself in defense of Bastogne, Belgium and encircled by a greatly superior German force after the German surprise attack known as the Battle of the Bulge. The enemy commander sent the BG McAuliffe the following: To the U.S.A. Commander of the encircled town of Bastogne. The fortune of war is changing. This time the U.S.A. forces in and near Bastogne have been encircled by strong German armored units. More German armored units have crossed the river Our near Ortheuville, have taken Marche and reached St. Hubert by passing through Hompre-Sibret-Tillet. Libramont is in Ger […]
A buddy turned me onto the Creek Stewart survivalist show called Fat Guys In The Woods on the Weather Channel. It’s not exciting, it’s not fancy, it’s not high drama but it is a great show to learn about bushcraft and the woosification of American men. Each episode revolves around three couch potatoes who are stuck in a rut of some form and need to make a change in their life. Creek’s goal is to help his rotund padawans build self confidence to move forward in their lives outside the woods. Creek’s approach is similar to that used by Outward Bound but revolves primarily around primitive wilderness skills. The guys enter the woods and Stewart walks them through shelter building, food acquisition as well as water acquisition and purification. By the end of […]
Winter is almost upon us and freezing temperatures are already here. Part of the Full Spectrum Preparedness Doctrine is recognizing the dangers we may face and being able to address them. One of the major dangers in cold weather is frostbite. Knowing first aid for frostbite is an important first aid skill to know once freezing temperatures arise. What is frostbite? Frostbite is a medical condition that results from the freezing of the body’s tissue. It usually affects the parts of the body that are farthest from the heart and large patches of exposed skin. Frostbite is characterized by the constriction of the skin, as blood is shunted to the body’s core in an attempt to maintain body temperature. The affected tissue freezes, and ice crystals form inside the body’s cell […]
Using a chainsaw to cut wood is an essential part of maintaining a homestead and providing your home with an alternative heating fuel source. Both of the aforementioned are integral parts of the Full Spectrum Preparedness Doctrine. Whether you are an experienced chainsaw user, or a novice starting out, any time of year is a good time to cut wood. In my book, now is the best time, though. Late fall is upon us, and we’ve had our first hard freeze. This is for a variety of reasons: It’s not too hot, or too cold; making cutting wood much more comfortable. Most of the things bite, sting and make you itch have been killed off with the first freeze. The small underlying vegetation and leaves have died back, or fallen, making it easier to move around and get to trees that will be cut. […]

As the mainstream media positively salivates over the anticipated civil unrest and rioting that’s expected following the release of the dual Grand Jury investigation and Department of Justice investigations that are expected to exonerate Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown, a teenager of African decent we thought it might be a good idea to review tips on prepping for riots and civil unrest.

A riot or period of riots/civil unrest is best avoided and the Prepping for Riots and Civil Unrest tips below should help you avoid or if necess […]
Pole Shift Survival Information – Survival Library Review This review is about a very interesting web-site that one internet denizen described as a “survival library on crack”. We here at Prepography have to agree. Pole Shift Survival Information bills itself as being for “for those who wish to improve their chances for survival after the coming pending pole shift. ” Don’t let that description fool you though.

Even if you aren’t worried about the potential for a pole shift the information presented would come in handy for any survival or TEOTWAWKI situation. Pole Shift Survival Information is a bare bone […]

Why DIY Dehydrated Eggs Is A Good Option When looking for egg storage solutions, dehydrating eggs at home flies right past many people. Eggs are one of the most nutritional and versatile foods around. From a remote homestead, to a backyard with a coop, they are easily accessible. Even without refrigeration they can last for weeks and still be edible. By refrigerating eggs that shelf life can be extended by several more weeks, maybe even a couple of months. For longer term storage some people freeze their eggs. By separating the whites and yolks, freezing them separately, eggs can last for up to 6 months. Still, for the long term Prepper that still isn’t an ideal situation. First off, freezing eggs is dependent on the electrical grid. If it goes down you loose refrigeration and the e […]
