As preppers we tend to accumulate stuff. This, for obvious reasons, is a good thing, but on the other hand, our pantries, closets and other storage places tend to fill up. In many ways prepping and hoarding can be a fine line (except our stuff is much cooler ). At any rate, to save space, it’s […]

What Is Happening In recent years, especially in developing countries, national governments have been escalating their war on cash. Although the claim is for the safety and convenience of its citizens, it’s nothing less than “a despotic attack by the ruling elites on the personal privacy and liberties of their citizens.” This drive towards a “cashless society” […]

You might not think dehydrated toothpaste blobs are such a novel idea but keep in mind, every little bit of weight savings helps in lightening the load of your bug out bag -- making for easier travel when you need it most.

What we nowadays take for granted, could become life-threatening in a collapse type situation.
For example, a good friend of mine got a simple scratch from his cat which developed into sepsis. Because he was able to get to a doctors and be treated with antibiotics nothing really happened but the thought came to him, if he didn't have access to modern medicine, he probably would not be here right now.

It's no secret that the United Nations has been after global gun disarmament for all citizens of all countries for some time now.
They've even been pushing (thankfully, unsuccessfully so far) for a binding international treaty that will supersede the US Constitution -- with the full support of our current administration let me add.

Baking powder is one of those must-have ingredients in everyone's pantry. If you plan on cooking any type of cookie, pancake, muffins and so on and you need to have baking powder.
As far as prepping goes, the problem with baking powder is that it's shelf life is only about 9 to 12 months. And what I've seen -- especially when it's been already opened -- the shelf life appears to be even shorter than that.
So in an extended SHTF situation, what are you going to do if you need to bake some cookies (only slightly kidding here)?

Have you ever wished that you could get your hands on an invisibility cloak like what's used in JKK Rowling's Harry Potter series? Imagine the cool things you could do with that?
Well, we might not be able to have an invisibility cloak but there is a relatively new product on the market today that can very well mimic this sort of effect with surprisingly good results.

It's no secret that the U.S. Government has been living WAAAY beyond its means for far too long now. Currently as it stands, the U.S. is 17.5 trillion dollars in debt and with a GDP of 16.7 trillion and tax revenues at 3.5 trillion, we won't be catching up with the current rate of spending anytime soon.

If you could shoot thousands of rounds from the comfort of your home for practically no cost and at the same time be coached in proper trigger control, would this intrigue you?
There's so much demand for ammunition right now from both the civilian sector as well as government that not only the cost of ammunition has risen but it's made it difficult to find quantities in stock.
Because of the prices and difficulty in finding ammunition, many preppers, law-enforcement agencies, and civilians are seeking for cheaper and alternative ways to supplement their firearms training.
