Todd’s Note: This is a guest post by Troy Brooks. Troy discusses some helpful information on survival caches. After you read the article, please feel free to discuss your thoughts in the comments.
This is the first of a series of articles about caching. Some consider it as the third most important tool a Survivalist or Prepper has. The first being knowledge of how to survive under any circumstance, the second is being in good enough physical condition to survive under any circumstance.
We’ll start with the Home Cache. The Home Cache is a supply of food and tools in [...]
Todd’s Note: Some preppers believe that we will get to a point where we won’t be using paper money. Those that believe that foresee a time when we will barter or use precious metals. But until that happens, we need to remember that our current financial system works off of paper money. As a result, we can prepare for a time when we will barter and use gold and silver, but we should also monitor our current financial resources too. This article talks about 3 important areas that you should consider in your current financial preps.
You can hide your [...]
Those of us in the Preparedness Community should always have OPSEC (operational security) in the back of our minds. This includes when you are talking about your preps, traveling out and about and even online.

I recently wrote an article, A Note of Courtesy for Prep Bloggers and Preppers who Read Them. In that post, I shared how there are websites who are taking well-written preparedness articles, copying them and using them as their own. They might change a few words around, but they are basically ripping off someone’s content. I talk about why this is so bad in the article. If you haven’t read it, please take a moment to do so.
But, it doesn’t [...]
Todd’s Note: Not too long ago, a reader turned me on to an old movie, Panic in the Year Zero. I was surprised at the lessons that it provided in the form of entertainment. Today, Mic Roland provides commentary and lessons that can be learned from another older film.
Sometimes, old movies contain some helpful reminders for preppers, even if unintentionally. I was reminded of this while watching a fairly obscure made-for-TV movie from 1974. “Where have all the people gone?” starred Peter Graves. The story was surprisingly salient to present-day prepper discussions, even though it was made forty years [...]
