The debate between skills vs. stuff is a big one. I know many articles have been written on it and I’ve been in many a forum debate about which to focus on. I write this as a fellow preparedness geek and a friend to all those out there who are working towards a secure future.

It is interesting to me how many preppers talk about getting off the grid and having self-sufficiency, but they end up just trusting their existence to yet another set of systems. You may have solar panels and well pumps but what if SHTF and a panel gets shattered by flying debris, or your well pump stops working as the bearings seize? There are a million what if scenarios and many are not that unlikely. You need something to fall back on; you need a final line of defense.

Most of us have had this type of conversation at some point, because well let's face it most people are a bunch of lazy worthless slobs that think everything should be done for them, with no effort on their part. They think that they are somehow entitled to what you've worked so hard to for. What will you do when they "friends" and extended family, come to you post SHTF looking for you to feed, cloth and house them?

If you remember, a few days ago, I wrote a review of Bulletproof Home Defense, which is about how-to defend your home and retreat, against looters, hungry mobs or other attackers. And since readers seemed to really appreciate and find that review helpful, I decided to write a short review of another similar program – […]

In 2009, I took Beginning Soap Making at a local adult continuing education class. It was a one-time Saturday morning class. I took the class because I wanted to have the knowledge for SHTF purposes, so I'd have a product that I could barter with. I've been making our family's soap ever since.

One thing brought up in class, that I had never thought of before, was that your skin readily absorbs all things it comes in contact with. So, everything you use in the shower from shampoo, conditioners, body washes, to soaps, all are in contact with your skin from head to toe. Even during the quickest of showers, your skin is absorbing all those chemicals that you can't pronounce. That made me think a little and gave me a second reason to make our soap.
