Apartment Prepping: Not Optimal BUT Possible

I recently helped someone set up their apartment,  someone who understood the value of preparedness but was just not at a point in their life where a home away from things on some land was possible.  Let’s face it, some might not even want that in their lives or other circumstances could force them to …

The Hierarchy Of Friends: Next Level Preparedness

When I moved to the mountains I came with my family and dogs and knew nobody, which was a less than optimal situation.  While some might subscribe to the lone wolf concept I realize that I cannot be all things, know all things and quite honestly have to sleep sometime.  Friendships must be established with …

Thanksgiving 2017: Prosperity, Collapse and the Future

I’m sitting here on my deck looking out over thousands of acres of wilderness, a cool breeze blowing and my dog at my feet.  Today being Thanksgiving I sat here for a while pondering what I am thankful for, and also wondering why we need a specific day to remind us to be thankful altogether.  …

The Daily Prep: Firewood, water, tires.

Woke up this morning to some ominious looking clouds over the mountain horizon, snow inbound.  The wind was such last night that it (once again) wreaked havoc with my tarps covering the wood pile, among other things.  I’ve learned quite a bit since moving to the mountains about managing wood for the stove, it turned …

Preparedness is always about improving your foxhole, going from where you are to the next level bit by bit based on prioritization and available resources.  I currently have multiple 5 gallon containers on site which I cycle fuel storage through, but with three vehicles with a total tank capacity over 70 gallons plus two generators …

I’m preaching to the choir but it had to be stated.  If you take a look at what is going on right now in Florida it is a classic case of why preparedness should be a critical part of one’s life.  Folks are lined up around the block for bottled water that they will never …

The Danger of Too Much Preparedness

I know a guy who entered into the prep world maybe 6 years ago, and boy did he ever. He absorbed every bit of information from all of the alt news websites and prep blogs, ran up his credit cards over the course of a year buying up stacks of supplies and guns and knew …

3 Tactical Preps You Probably Do NOT Need

Tactical preps are ultra cool, always good to have some extra kit laying around because…”better to have and not need than need and not have.”  Right?  Or maybe time and money could be spent elsewhere, after all very few of us have money to throw around at whatever our tactical heart desires.  What follows are …

Water Storage Tips and Techniques

I typically store my water off of the ground, whether it be in the basement or garage.  The main reason I do so (no matter the type of actual storage device) is primarly to avert the leaching process: concrete to plastic to water.  If you search the internet there is no shortage of folks who …

Building a Preparedness Community from Scratch

I am in the preliminary stages of building a preparedness community, assembling a contingent of like minded individuals / families which can trust each other when times get tough, be it a localized disaster or something greater.  The reality of the situation is that no matter how much training or preps you have, a community …

A Comprehensive Bugout Strategy

I’ve written about bugging out in the past, it’s a popular concept with many relevant ties to everyday life and unfortunately it’s also a concept rooted in many prepper fantasies.  Realistic bugouts happen quite frequently due to localized natural disasters, folks have to leave their home with very little notice hoping that it will be …

SHTF: High probability low impact vs Low probability high impact

What are you preparing for and how do you prioritize accordingly?  There are some very real threats out but all of us are limited on time and resources.  Even the independently wealthy prepper with all the time and money in the world could not prepare for and mitigate risk for every potential disaster which exists …

2016 Predictions

It’s been a while since I’ve posted but thought to come back strong with some 2016 predictions.  Let me know what you think! 1- There will be no economic collapse.  The stock market will not crash, at least not in 2016.  The funny thing is that I once commented on a very popular blog which …
