On this blog we’ve discussed how to protect yourself and your home when the SHTF.  However, what happens when things are just starting to deteriorate and you still need to leave your home for supplies/work/family?   The post below outlines some quick tips to consider which are more along the lines of building that community […]

We’ve talked about bug out bags extensively on this site but we haven’t discussed properly preparing your bug out vehicle.  Courtney Gordner has written for us before and always has an interesting take.
