    I just got a phone call from my grandmother, I have recently started to help get her prepared. She lost her job recently and her $700 SS payment got cut by $200. When she called to find out why, they said she owed them $1000. No explanation, waiting on the good ol legal system now. She came...

    Just read this in the 1012 forum. Wanted to bring it over here because of the amount of people her in comparison. Now, I am not really a 2012 guy and don't get into astronomy too much but, this really took me back. Is this real or just some kind of hypothesis? If this is going to happen...

    While working in an auto shop years ago I got the chance to be introduced to a waste oil heater. I know it was just a standard oil heater that he had converted to waste oil. I hadn't thought of it then, but this seems like an excellent conversion for SHTF situations. I wish I had asked him had...

    What do you do? Are you prepared? Particularly if you are in an unfamiliar country, far from adequate resources. Thousands of tourists touring Machu Pichu in Peru had to be evacuated this week after mudslides and a flooded river destroyed the only link - a rail line - to the village below the...

    From 1961 through 1965 there was a drought that struck the Northeast and lasted 4 years. During this time the effects were immediately felt throughout the Delaware water basin. New York officials were interested in not alarming the citizens thus assurances were given through early 1965 that...

    Lets assume that you are new to this. You have no money or gear, but want to be as prepared as possible. It would be nice to have enough money to set up a 50 acre retreat (if someone does have that much money, write me. I would be happy to set up a place for you) The first decision is: stay or...

    DON'T PANIC. Here are some tips and please feel free to comment or add. There are posts on this forum this morning about speculated closure or suspension of all trading on the stock markets as the siuation deteriorates.
