Vid: How to Siphon Gas Without A Pump

I was recently at an auto parts store looking at gas siphons, they weren’t too bad but I figured there had to be an easier way.  Of course, getting a mouth full of gasoline must be avoided too.  I found this video on YouTube, it gets straight to the point and shows a clever way …

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  Now it’s been 1, 3, 5, 10 years since you originally made that list and I have to ask: did things go exactly as …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 …

Does “Gray Man” Apply To Your Vehicle?

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.

24 Things Preppers Are Tired of Hearing

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.

Vid: A tribute to Robin Williams

Say what you want about his personal life, maybe you don’t give a rat’s a$$ about him…maybe you have heard he was a godless person and for that you could care less.  All I know is this, he spent lots of time bringing smiles to that faces of countless men and women in uniform and …

Took the Missus to the Woods, This is What Happened

Ah yes, the fantasy is alive and strong.  SHTF occurs and we all grab our packs and head for the hills, this assuming our plan to hunker down is absolutely compromised and no other option is left. We’ll live like pioneers and carve out a life for ourselves while dodging the golden horde and various …
