Black Friday Deal: Valley Food Storage (40% off)

Just wanted to pass this deal along, I recently reviewed some of their food and it was very tasty (write up coming).  I will tell you, it was better than any Mountain House or Backpacker’s Pantry meal I’ve had. Very short window on this opportunity to save big.  Check it out over at the Valley …

Thanksgiving: 10 Things I Am Thankful For.

Just a brief rundown of my list, what is yours? 1- I’m a sinner, far from perfect, but thankful to have been saved by grace. 2- My wonderful wife who continues to put up with my ridiculous butt, she is crazy for doing so. 3- My daughter who is the light of my life, I …

New Sponsor! Tower Garden By Juice Plus

All- Just wanted to update everyone on an exciting development, we’ve picked up a new sponsor which offers something quite unlike what you’ll see out there on the side bars of most prepper-ish blogs.  The reason I’m excited is that my wife and I wanted to dabble in Aeroponics for some time now and this …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

Mannerisms: Some Things I Do

Mannerisms…might not be the scientific term, some refer to it as non verbal cues and others put it more plainly: how you carry yourself.  Whatever you call it, how you interact with those in the general populace can have a direct impact on your success or failure in negotiations.  After all almost EVERYTHING is a …

Thoughts on “Taking People’s Stuff”

Stealing.  It’s bad right?  Of course it is and under normal circumstances the line is very black and white, it’s pretty easy to distinguish right from wrong and adhere to the rules.  But what if an extended SHTF has plunged society into a state of utter chaos / WROL, where simply being able to survive …

Our Dependency on Modern Conveniences Exposed…AGAIN

Last summer I wrote about our own little personal experience with SHTF, that being the AC unit going out during a string of 90+ degree days.  Talk about misery, sure it was uncomfortable but the familiy had it worse and the home (not built for air flow) started to stink and feel incredibly musty.  Well …

Beware the Military Mindset

Lots of military inspired prepper blogs out there, this is one to be sure.  While some are great others can lean too far towards the military mindset, trying to link up all training with the art of survival / prepping.  While military experience is a serious feather in the cap the perfect prepper it does …
