Okay, admittedly I’ve been somewhat scarce online lately. Don’t take that to mean that I’ve been just sitting around eating bon-bons all day, though. Instead, I’ve just been extremely busy with several things. I spent a week down in Florida working with Panteao Productions on a series of instructional prepper/survival DVDs. Immediately prior to that, more »

The recent events in Ferguson, Missouri, serve to highlight the need for being prepared for civil unrest. While this is more of an issue for urban preppers, anyone who travels to larger cities needs to be aware of the possibility of riots and protests breaking out during the trip. One element of civil unrest that more »

As I mentioned on Facebook not too long ago, I’m working with Panteao Productions as an instructor for an upcoming series of DVDs called Make Ready to Survive. This series is, quite honestly, the most ambitious project I’ve been involved with to date. Panteao Productions has made a big name for themselves in the area more »

I’ve always considered myself fairly well-versed in the post-apocalyptic fiction arena. After all, I’ve been a huge fan of it for three decades or so. Tell you what, I know nothing about end of the world movies compared to David J. Moore. In World Gone Wild, Moore has reviewed over 800 post-apocalyptic movies, from the more »

A new addition to the prepper/survival magazine niche has just dropped. Survivor’s Edge is published by Harris Publications, the same people who bring us New Pioneer and American Frontiersman. Both of those are favorites of mine so when I heard about Survivor’s Edge, I had very high hopes. I was not disappointed! The premier issue more »

I have long been a fan of Ragnar Benson. He’s written numerous survival books for Paladin Press, all from the perspective of “been there, done that.” Safe to say that Benson, along with Dr. Bruce Clayton, helped me to form many of the survival philosophies I have to this day.

Those of you who know me or are frequent fliers here or on my Facebook page know full well just how much of an avid reader I am. While I don’t limit my book consumption to strictly survival-related stuff, that has been the bulk of it for quite some time now. In spite of having more »

In his follow up to Build the Perfect Bug Out Bag, Creek Stewart does to vehicles what he did to survival kits. This book is easily one of the most detailed guides to outfitting a bug out vehicle I’ve ever seen. In 220+ pages and 17 chapters, Creek outlines how you should go about choosing more »

Prepper & Shooter Magazine is a fairly new addition to the survival newsstand. Issue #2 was just published in the last few weeks. I missed the premier issue, though I did search for it after a few of my readers mentioned it to me. I found this issue at Barnes & Noble. My first impression more »
