There is one thing that the recent Ebola scare has shown the American people. As a result, it should scare the crap out of the general population.
Here it is – They don’t know what to do! By “they,” I mean the government.
The reason I say that it should scare the crap out of the general population, is because “we” already know this. We’ve seen the inability of those in government to do anything of real value. You don’t have to look too far. Just think back to congress trying to pass a budget. Do you remember when the [...]
Recently, I put out a questionnaire to ask the Preparedness Community a few questions. The questions were:
What ONE thing do you need help on to FEEL better prepared? Please type your response and feel free to elaborate. What EMERGENCY is your biggest concern? Feel free to elaborate. What other type of articles would you like to find/read about in regards to preparedness? What question have you always wanted to ask but never felt comfortable to ask?
I am grateful for my friends in the Preparedness Community, website and blog owners who made their readers aware of the questionnaire [...]
I’m a big fan of used Altoids Tins. I just think that for a few bucks, you get some great mints and a cool little metal container that has a TON of uses.

Actually the internet is filled with many creative pictures and how-to’s from [...]
As I read articles to link to on Prepper Website and then see what is popular in the stats, I like to identify patterns and trends. For example, I know now that any article that discusses “BUGGING OUT” is usually going to do pretty well. I don’t know why that is since bugging out is one of the low possibility scenarios. You are more likely to “BUG IN” and “SHELTER IN PLACE.” Yes, if the zombies come and your city is run over, you will want to “BUG OUT” and live the WALKING DEAD in real life! But, you [...]
You Prep. You Research. You Plan. You Interact Online.
At some point you’re going to want to have some human interaction, at least if you’re normal. I know I did and I still do.
Now, I know that some of you are screaming at your computer screen…. WHAT ABOUT OPSEC??? I’ll talk a little bit about that at the end of this article.
But the fact is, you can really benefit from human interaction with other preppers.
1. You can learn skills – Reading articles online and watching videos are great! We live in a time where there is [...]
