Last Stand: Patriots. A Novel by William H. Weber

Normally I wouldn’t dedicate an entire post to a book release but this one is special to me.  The author, William H. Weber, contacted me a few months ago and asked if I would like to receive a beta copy of the book so that I could provide my input.  I was honored to do …

Prepping is Practical…and Kind of Boring

Let’s keep it real here.  I don’t want SHTF to happen anytime soon, I’m referring to TEOTWAWKI type SHTF.  I like the comforts that modern life provides for myself and my family.  I like having a job, recreation time, friends, freedom to do many of the things which we find enjoyable.  I don’t fantasize about …

A Prep Strategy Is Flexible, NOT Rigid

Remember when you started prepping?  Maybe you made a list of things you wanted to buy, courses of action for how you would achieve a short or long term end state.  Now it’s been 1, 3, 5, 10 years since you originally made that list and I have to ask: did things go exactly as …

Two Years Later, Still Chugging Along

Labor Day weekend in 2012, I spent most of it getting this blog ready to go live.  I wrote up all of the New Prepper Info articles and screwed around with blog design and functionality.  Who would have thought that 2 years and several hundred articles later this thing would still be going strong and …

I Thought I Had A Tail Today, This Is What I Did…

I drive quite a bit for my job, it doesn’t bother me much as I listen to audio books or jam out to “best of the 80’s” sound tracks on sat radio.  I also like the time alone and the fact that I usually get to pick and choose when and where I want to …

All of this talk about blending in, being the gray man and maintaining an unassuming profile while out in public.  I wonder how many of these gray man proponents roll around with NRA stickers, Glock stickers, personalized military or police license plates and other vehicle swag. Look I understand, someone is proud of their service …

A chat with a *REAL* Prepper

Recently my friend made the 4 hour trek to come hang out with me for the weekend.  We expended quite a bit a ammunition, talked about preps, 3-5 year plans and tipped back a few adult beverages.  I found ironic that when the topic of current events came up, he was rather clueless.  I brought …

Water Storage Plan = Water Bricks

A plan for water, arguably the most important prep, should be diversified.  A one dimensional water plan (i.e. I’ll just grab water from the stream and boil it if necessary) is just asking for trouble.  After all what if the water is contaminated and you cannot boil it?  What if filtration devices may not be …

My Insurance Company Knows How Many Guns I Own.

I know what some of you may be worried about so here’s my take on it.  If the Feds want to roll me up and show up at my doorstep with an inventory taken from my insurance company’s database, I suppose the world will be facing much larger issues at that point.  As a matter …

Prepper Anthem: Standard American (Video)

I don’t know about you, but this one hits the nail pretty close on the head. For any who might be offended, the “b word” is used quite a bit.  Eh… Enjoy! The song is from Gunnar & the Grizzly Boys.

By Emily. When you first hear the word ‘prepper’ or ‘prepping’, the first thing that comes to mind is crazy, hoarder, nutjob, or those paranoid people who have a LOT of supplies of just about everything.
