    Hey alls... The wife and I (mainly I) decided that our new location needed a storm shelter/root cellar. We recently moved out of town and the area we now live in has been hit by major storm/tornado several times in the last 10 years so the primary function of the shelter will be a storm...

    Hey all, I am in the process of buying my first home. I always kinda felt like I would be wasting my time with any kind of long term preps at a house I was renting, because of the " you never know " factor.

    Tin foil hats on everyone? Okay... Rumor has it that some type of surprise might happen in October to delay/stop/postpone the election. We've all heard of global warming, HA/Arp, Kem trails and all of that crazy stuff. Nonsense really... Now there is this mega hurricane/perfect storm which...

    I'm sure everyone heard about the recent outbreak of tornadoes which devastated Eastern Ky last Friday. I've been offline for the last few days as the local grid recovers from the damage.

    I bet there are a lot of preppers in Nome, Alaska that are glad they have seasoned firewood stocked and in place because you never know when you might need it. It's the things that you can't predict that you need to be ready for. Hurricane, truckers strike, wildfire, financial collapse and in...
