Ask most any prepper in the U.S. about biltong, and they’re likely to have a very perplexed look on their face. That’s because very few Americans know what this survival food is. And that means they’re ignorant of one of the best survival foods out there.
Biltong is basically South Africa’s version of beef jerky. However, biltong is even better than American jerky, since it lasts WAY longer and doesn’t need an oven or dehydrator to make. Not to mention, it’s pretty darn tasty!
Plus, one of the best things about biltong is you can use virtually any kind of lean meat
Hardtack is one survival food that is certainly withstanding the test of time. After all, both the British Navy and U.S. soldiers during the Civil War were using this food to survive on either long voyages, or on the battlefield.
One of the reasons it was so popular is because of how incredibly cheap and easy it is to make. Not to mention, its shelf-life is outstanding – up to 50 years! This makes it a no-brainer when preparing for a crisis.
However, the thing that sets it apart is how incredibly hard the biscuit is once it cools off. It got
The truth is, there are many, many different factors to look into when researching what scope to buy. And some of these factors are more important than others, all depending on your needs.
However, here are a few to know about next time you go shopping for that perfect scope…
Things Your Scope Needs To Be Effective In The Field
There are generally two types of magnification – variable and fixed. Variable lets you zoom in and out on the target. Fixed scopes, on the other hand, are “fixed” (or locked) on a specific magnification.
Most preppers relish the time spent selecting a gun for their survival experience. However, more often than not firearms are the ones who get the glory. Leaving optics behind in the dust.
There’s a few reasons for this. Sometimes, preppers mistakenly believe they don’t need an optic, or that they’re too much of a hassle. Others may say they’re not worth the cost. And, of course, there are those who believe they’re a sharp enough shooter to not need an optic.
Despite the excuses, the fact is that NOT having an optic on your firearm is a very big mistake that can
When most people start to prepare for a disaster event, they start to think about how to gain access to a variety of different sources of power. Some preppers turn to solar energy, others may turn to alternate fuel sources or gas-running generators.
However, the issue with most of these solutions is that they don’t really produce free energy. Even solar energy might appear to be free – until you consider the upfront investment. Getting a solar setup in the home can easily cost $10,000 – $30,000 right off the bat. That’s much higher than $0.00.
Now, this may be an uncomfortable topic. But the fact is, all preppers (and human beings) need to use the bathroom throughout the day. And, if you’ve been stockpiling toilet paper, this typically doesn’t come with too many issues.
However, what happens when the stockpile runs out? Or if something happens, and you longer have access to real toilet paper? In the event of an emergency, your bathroom needs will remain the same. Which means you need to prepare for some alternative solutions.
As it turns out, nature provides a great deal of alternatives to toilet paper. In addition, certain common, everyday
Most preppers know all about stocking up on survival food, survival tools, and survival water. But what about survival seeds?
The most incredible thing about survival seeds is that they’re already present in many of the fruits and vegetables you already eat. And, when you buy the organic versions, you can simply remove the seeds inside and collect them for your survival garden.
These seeds can provide you a practically limitless abundance of survival food in a crisis. And it’s one of the absolute cheapest ways you can get sustenance for a crisis!
Water is crucial for human life. They say a human can only survive for 3 days without water. And, if you’ve done the necessary stockpiling, it’s likely you’ll have enough to last a while during a crisis.
However, what happens when you don’t have access to your stockpile? Or something terrible happens to it? It’s crucial to know what alternatives are available to keep dehydration at bay.
One of the best resources for water is certain plants and fruits. Not only do they contain H2O, but they also provide beneficial nutrients to aid the body.
As many preppers know, flour is simply the result of grinding up grains, seeds, or roots. Most people are aware of corn, barley, and wheat flour.
However, there are many other plants that can be ground into a fine powder and made into flour. And many of these people don’t even normally eat!
Grocery store shelves are sure to be empty hours into a crisis. And, without the proper ingredients, you may have a heck of a time preparing food and staying alive. That’s why it’s important to make the most out of all the resources you can. And a great way
