We preppers do so love putting together different types of survival kits, don’t we? But, really, how many kits does one truly need? Well, let’s take a look. First, there’s the Get Home Bag (GHB). This is the kit we keep with us wherever we go, just in case we need to exit stage right more »

You’d think I would know better by now. Having read the first two books in this series, I’m already familiar with how exciting Bradley’s writing is and how compelling the overall story has been thus far. So, I certainly should have known to not start reading the latest installment late at night. I was up more »

The first edition of Build the Perfect Survival Kit was one of the very first books I ever reviewed here. Long time readers may recall just how much I raved about it. The new edition adds about 25% more content (256 pages vs. 192 pages in the original). This is a dangerous book, to be more »

I picked up a copy of this magazine at least a few weeks ago but noticed recently it seems to be popping up on newsstands everywhere. American Frontiersman is being put out by the same great folks who do New Pioneer magazine, a publication I really enjoy. Near as I can tell, this is the more »

The latest issue of Self-Reliance Illustrated landed in my mailbox about a week or so ago. As always, it is stocked to the gills with just absolutely stellar information. What I really appreciate about SRI is that the articles are being written by folks who have truly been there and done that. These aren’t armchair more »

EDC (every day carry) is frequently a hot topic among preppers. Seems everybody wants to know what everybody else is packing. In surfing through various survival/prepper related message boards and such, you’ll find list on top of list of EDC items. Sometimes these lists are sensible, logical, and practical. Quite often, though, I’m utterly flabbergasted more »

Experts keep telling us that the economy is getting better but it sure doesn’t feel that way, does it? As our household budgets get tighter and tighter, it can be difficult to fit “luxury” items such as prepping into the mix. This causes a lot of stress, particularly in households where not everyone is 100% more »

I have long lamented what I feel is an overemphasis on wilderness skills in the prepping world (Exhibit A – The Living Off The Land Fallacy).  However, don’t take that to mean I poo-poo the idea of learning how to fed for yourself in the wild.  Far from it, actually.  I do believe every prepper more »
