    Dear Survivalists, It never fails - the one thing you forget is the one thing you really, really need. Usually it's something little. You've got a flashlight but no batteries. A cell phone but no charger. Kindling but no matches. But what if you forgot something bigger? Something that could...
  3. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Curently I am 13 and in 8th grade. And prepping for natural/man made disasters. I live in northeastern Michigan, so really the only natural disasters I worry about are tornados or blizzards. But any man made disaster could strike here. So, when I'm at school I always try to think of what I could...
  4. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    If you have or have not heard this past weekend, survivalist and prepper boards, blogs, email, and You Tube were buzzing with information that federal agents raided a LDS cannery in Tennessee trying to obtain customer lists. This information so far seems to be false and it has caused an uproar...

    Can you physically handle the future after SHTF? Have you thought about the changes your body will go thru after the SHTF? Your diet will change dramatically along with the physical demands. Your day to day living will consist of activities that are grueling physical labor that is needed to...

    Mother Nature Provides The Lessons For Prepping As preppers we prepare for EMP's, economic collapse, and some even prepare for zombies but not too many give thoughts to natural disasters. Mother Nature can be just as deadly and unpredictable as the East Coast has been realizing over the last...

    Locally where I live we had a couple of thugs rob a jewelry store and flee to another county. These guys may have been responsible for a string of robberies all up and down the east coast. During their flight in a black SUV, they were identified and followed by county police, and state police...

  9. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    So I was at a conference yesterday and one of the sessions dealt with disaster preparedness planning. So I sat in a room with 20 other people and the director of Homeland Security, a few White House staff, a slew of FEMA upper level managers. The room was filled with disaster planners from...

    I received an email from a friend who is a field coordinator for FEMA last week. I was asking about the Mountain House situation in which FEMA supposedly denies making mass purchases of the number 10 cans of survival food. My friend said that yes, FEMA was purchasing the food and stockpiling...

    Survival preparations need to be done in an effective order (reading/studying, purchasing, storing). Thus, we need a set of priorities. I would like to propose the following prioritized steps to take in emergency preparations: 1. In an emergency, our very basic level of needs are: A.) Air...
  12. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    My girlfriend and I had a significant talk earlier yesterday where I expressed my deep concerns about commitment to her that she did not reciprocate but told me that in time she will grow to want the same things I do, and that I should "know that she love's me and it won't change." In a child...

    I know many many examples from personal experience, but I wanted to hear why YOU thought the wealthy do not prepare for a depression or natural disaster. In my line of work I would guesstimate less than 1% of the Upper Class prepare even in the least bit. Food stocks that would last them 3...

    http://www.dailycamera.com/louisville-news/ci_17681980 If you live in this county, and you can't move, I would really look into finding a means to hiding your items. This is horrible imho. I like how they try to make it all better by saying they will pay you for your supplies. In SHTF...

    I remember hearing about a guy that was lost at sea in a raft for 170+ days. Can you imagine being lost at sea for almost half a year? I bring that up because when TSHTF, there is no way of predicting how long it might last. It made me wonder how many people have plans for when their consumable...

    So, how far away do you think you would have to be from a city so that you would think "Well, the chances of even VERY well supplied and VERY well prepared/well led raiders (i.e- a military group) reaching this location is so extremely low as to be virtually a non-issue (for example- the chances...
  17. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I was curious how often others practice bugging out or for that matter bugging in. As i've become more serious about prepping i realized that many of my original plans were flawed because they only factored in current travel times with the infrastructure intact. :upsidedown: Then i realized that...

    after reading allot of posts it seems that allot of people have a very unrealistic view of what BUG OUT is. or maybe it's unrealistic SHTF view. now these are just my opinions. i know allot of people on this board are just as realistic as i am, yet see things in a different way. and thats...

    Ok, here is my scenario I live in the suburbs and it's a split level. I have a good amount of storage of food, supplies, ammo, etc...I've always felt that if something happened, we'd be ok there. However, I grew up in the country and while it's not my land, I would feel comfortable fleeing the...
