Most all Americans can agree that we love food. And not healthy food either. Things like hamburgers, french fries, tacos, and other fast food items have swept across the nation. There’s a Starbucks on nearly every corner, and there’s a McDonald’s in-between each coffee shop.
And it’s not just fast food, either, that has Americans in an unhealthy lifestyle. Overall, most of us don’t get nearly the amount of exercise we need every day. We sit at work, we sit at home, we sit in the car. Most of the time many of us only really get a walk in when
Bandanas have been playing a part in survival situations for a very long time. And, just like anything else, its importance can wear off over time if we take them for granted.

Most preppers know the basics about what to keep in their bug out bag. After all, things like food, water, shelter, and self-defense tools are fairly self-explanatory.
However, there’s items outside of these categories that are crucial to your survival. And the sad truth is that most preppers forget these at home (or don’t even think to pack them). And they don’t even realize it until SHTF.
In order to prepare for disaster, we need to think outside of the box of food, water, shelter, and defense. We need to look more closely at the day-to-day essentials that we’ll need for the
The pioneers were some of the most resourceful, hardy people in American history. That’s because they were able to use anything/everything available to them in order to make foods to help themselves and their families survive.
They were also in a constant state of survival, and so this was their motivation to use every food source they could to keep themselves alive.
Luckily, since their goal was long-term sustenance, many of the foods they made are stick-to-your-ribs filling. They also contain easy to find, cheap, and versatile ingredients. After all, many of them had very little money or items to barter, so
When it comes to survival resources, there are few more important than a firearm. This survival essential is crucial for helping you hunt, or to defend yourself from an attacker.
However, the fact is thieves are likely going to attempt to break into your home to steal your firearm. And, unless you do something about it, they’re extremely likely to find it…and then use it against you.

Most preppers are all about stocking up on survival food. Whether it’s freeze-dried, canned, dry goods, what have you… they can’t get enough. However, what most preppers haven’t heard about that’s equally important is stocking up on FAKE survival food.
Think about it. Pillagers, marauders, attackers, even your own neighbors can come attempting to break in and steal your survival food. There may not be a way to prevent this. But there IS a way to make them take your stuff…and still leave empty-handed.
The fact is that, in a major emergency, everything on the grocery store shelves will be gone in
Most preppers have a bug out bag, full of survival tools that will keep them functioning properly in an emergency. But what about a survival kit for your vehicle?
Vehicles are likely to face a whole host of problems when SHTF. For instance, they can break down and leave you totally stranded.In order to help prepare for a variety of scenarios that can occur, it’s essential to be ready.
That’s why it’s important to fill a “vehicle survival kit” with lots of items that can help save yourself (and your car) if it unexpectedly needs maintenance on the road.
When most people think of their bug out spot, it’s typically in a heavily wooded area, such as a forest. There’s lots of wildlife here, and rivers/lakes, and plenty of wood for fire. However, the issue with these locations is that they’re home to one creepy crawler: the tick. And ticks are surprisingly dangerous, considering that many of them carry diseases (like Lyme disease and others). And, without treatment, these can become fatal.SHTF situations are bad enough without having to worry about tick bites. That’s why it’s important to know…
