Dangerous Assumption: Mental Toughness / Adrenaline Will Be Enough

You’ve read about it, probably heard it countless times and no doubt experienced it yourself at some point: Mind over matter…as in if you don’t mind it won’t matter.  Suck it up, grind it out, push through the pain and you’ll make it to whatever the objective might be.  However I would argue that mental …

Surviving any Situation – Alcohol tips and uses

By Luke. When it comes to self-reliance and being able to adapt and change to any given situation, utilizing a single item for multiple purposes will separate you from the other denizens of society. You’ll need to be able to secure your home, family, and valuable resources. One of the most valuable items when it …

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 …

Why You Should Own A German Shepherd

Maybe this is an irrelevant dog lover post, but for those interested in the safety and security that a dog can provide both PRE and POST SHTF, I encourage you to do your research and pick up a German Shepherd (GSD).  Granted, other dogs out there will serve similar purposes but from someone who has …

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 …

Why Are You Prepping?

To be sure we live in very uncertain times, it feels as if the house of cards could come tumbling down at any moment given the right sequence of events.  Yet to be realistic, especially when considering the last few years, I’d say SHTF isn’t exactly around the next bend.  Possible…yes.  Likely…not quite yet.  That …

I have a new Email address

To those who might care…my email address has changed.   Imagine getting 50 to 100 SPAM emails per day and having to delete/sort through them besides the regular email.  My server email just couldn’t cut it.  If you would like to send me an email please do so to… p j p r e p …

Some Police “need” MRAPs to protect against Vets returning from combat?

I had to post about this after reading it as I know we have plenty of vets on here.  If you’ll note I made sure to put SOME in the title, I’m sure not all departments feel this way… “Pentagon data suggest how the police are arming themselves for such worst-case scenarios. Since 2006, the …

Glock Malfunctions

I set out yesterday to put in a few hours at my local range, only to be disappointed when my trusted Glock 19 immediately started having malfunctions.  I’d squeeze the trigger and the gun wouldn’t cycle properly, it’s almost as if there were light loads involved which would lead to the next round not getting …

I’m Not As Good As I Once Was…

When I was 20 years old I could play 3 games of flag football in the evening, wake up early the next day and go to physical fitness training, hit the gym that day at lunch to squeeze in a lift and follow up with 2 to 3 hours of basketball in the evening.  My …

Comical Example of Just How Unprepared People Are

My mom used to always say: “if you are diligent in the little things you will be diligent in the big things.”  Maybe I’m paraphrasing a bit but you’ll have to excuse my poor memory, my mom is also one of the most religious people I know and I grew up with her quoting every …

Some Preps You Might Have Overlooked

You’ve got the guns, the ammo, the first aid equipment, the food, gardening supplies, library of how to books, various tools and a lifted 4×4 with steel bumpers.  All great things to have but what about some of the often overlooked preps that could be a serious problem if you don’t have them (or something …

What Happens When You Don’t Stay Informed?

There have been times in my life when I was a news junkie, practically scanning the internet/television/radio daily for hours to spot signs of impending SHTF.  What’s the stock market doing?  Where has the gubmint oppressed the citizens and is martial law around the corner?  Cyberattack probability escalating?  Someone worth listening to says collapse will …

OPSEC: Where to Draw the Line

Generally I’m pretty evasive about my prepping passion, I don’t bring it up and if the topic is broached by others I usually remain low key (or ridiculously over the top).  In those instances it is usually pretty easy to know where the OPSEC line is and how not to cross it.  You avoid the …
