    In April of 2018 the SurvivalistBoards YouTube channel was renamed to RuralPrepper. Some of the viewers were asking why the name changed. So let’s take a few minutes and talk about it. I have been into survivalism since at least the 1990s. Part of the way I was raised – hunting...

    For those city dwellers that do not know this, spread all over the United States are small man made ponds. People who live in rural areas know about them. So, if a full blown collapse were to happen, how would you utilize the ponds? This video was filmed at a local deer lease. A few...

    2016 I bought either 22 or 24 chicks, a feral cat killed just about all of the them. The first ones to go missing were the white leghorns. Late January 2017 I bought 6 leghorns, 3 delawares and 3 silver laced wyandottes. At around 7 weeks old I moved them from the small chicken house out to...

    Crisis Planning, Now that I Live at my BOL I moved to southern California in 1983, with a shiny new engineering degree and a job offer from the US Navy. I worked for over 30 yrs at a Weapons Development base called China Lake, located in the Mohave Desert. I lived in a rural area, got paid real...

    The coyotes are getting brave and making moves on the chickens during the middle of the day. I have found myself unprepared to deal with the coyotes. I do not have a coyote call. Can not put out foothold traps because my dogs and my cousins dogs will get in them. Solution Rather than...

    An older gentlemen and his wife who live close to me were robbed last friday. They were out of town for a couple days on a trip that lasted thursday through saturday. Sometime while they were gone the front door was kicked in, the whole gun safe was stolen, and the thieves tried to steal a...
  8. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    Howdy all. I don't post here very often but I thought I'd put up what I am doing at my 20 acre property. A lot of this beginning part is history which you might find boring; feel free to skip it. My wife and I are both libertarians. I've been a prepper for years which is why I moved to Montana...

    My wife and I are working towards being self-sufficient. Or as self-sufficient as one can be in the 21st century. The problem is, the word "self-sufficient" has been used over and over so many times that it starts to lose its effect. I think another good term would be "indefinite...

    This weekend we had a heavy wet snow snapping trees all over the place and a resulting power outage. With chainsaw in truck I made an ice run getting enough for myself and surrounding neighbors. Bearing in mind that I live way out in the country and my neighbors are country folks. Now listen to...

    A lot of survivalist recommend buying "productive farmland" as a store of value as well as for a survival retreat, but what exactly does that mean? Couldn't any open, flat land be farmland? Is it recommended to buy land that has already been used to grow crops because I thought that crops...

    I'm considering a purchase of a piece of property near family by a well established lake in upstate New York. I do not have the time to visit more than a few times a year, and hunting on the property is not possible. Nearby state land would allow hunting. I guess it could be used as a base, but...

    I see a lot of people on this board that have left their job to get away from the big cities to keep their family safe when TSHTF. They have moved to remote locations or small towns. I have a practical question, how'd you do it? I'd love to be able to just pick up and leave but I'm concerned...
  15. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I thought I would like to share my plans with you. I live in Rio de Janeiro, a big city, and frankly, I believe that it would be impossible to bug in in the middle-class condo I live. Water would be a problem very very soon, and security-wise, it would be a nightmare. My main concern is not...

    There is a certain anonymity with urban living you just can't achieve in a small town. I live in a very small county (less than 10,000 people in the whole county). My grand daughter's school has only a little above 100 kids total, in a preK to 8th grade school. My daughter was very upset one...
