    My main focus will be on food. Of course I will be doing other topics, such as hiking, water filters, flashlights, and mre and freeze dried taste testing. I want to do some buckets with chicken manure to grow preppers and tomatoes. In February use the tractor to disk up an area and plant...

    Build deck on back of house. Fence in a field for livestock. Start to work on barn. Buy Bravo Company upper to round out my AR collection. Build my brother a bar-b-que pit on a trailer. Increase my ammunition, magazine and AR-15 spare parts stockpile. Build my wife a nice raised bed garden -...

    Maybe "dividing resources in your long term survival plans" is a good title for this thread. But its all I could think of at the time. Like a lot of people my wife and I have limited resources. We are just everyday middle class people trying to get by. Just like everyone else we pay our...

    It seem there is a lot of opinions about what goes into a BOB but there seems to be even more opinions on what the BOB is used for. My personal BOB is designed for a very long term detour from society and conveniences. Some people's idea of bugging out may be a weeks worth of camping. What is...

    I thought I would post this poll in relationship to the best and worst states threads. How important is your location to you as a prepper? The scenario is total society/financial meltdown. For whatever reason you can not bug out. Please vote and state your reasons. :)

    Virtually all land is owned, so anywhere you decided to go you will be on someone's property. If half of land owners are like some of those on this forum that have the shoot on sight mentality it will be very dangerous for people bugging out. This video has good sensible advice for the land...

    Hello all, In hopes of providing a thread which gives us something to think and talk about positively, I would like to ask you each to answer this question, to your own comfort level. NO need to be specific if you are not Ok with giving details. What style of survival would your contingency...

    As much as we would like to have a nice home in the burbs and a well supplied fortress in the boonies, some of us need to be practical about such things! I am nearing retirement and as much as I would like a nice piece of acreage that has water, good fishing, good hunting, good growing season...

    I have decided that when TSHTF the best option for my wife and I is to bug out. There are two locations in which I can choose. First Location-400 acre with running water supply, around 50 head of cattle but that is the only livestock on property. This location is about 1 hr drive from...

    After watching Hurricane Irene hit the east coast, the fires in Texas, and the earthquake in the northeast,,,, do you think people will go into a panic buying mode? Meaning, will people start stockpiling food, guns, water and ammunition more then usual? When there is a disaster, people usually...

    Lets say SHTF tomorrow, what would your survival gear stockpile look like? For a lot of survivalist it would be mostly beans and bullets – meaning not very much thought has been put into the plans. When the SurvivalistBoards youtube channel was opened, I wanted to publish a wide range of...

    Okay, I got absolutely flamed for my last poll because I didn't include a completely irrelevant option in the poll, so here it goes: DISCLAIMER: Pick the option that best fits. If your favorite option doesn't exist, tough crap...make your own poll.

    Mine is to probably get my family (Mom's side) together and try to go to my aunt's store, or to my Grandma's old house... I figured since we got all of our survival goodies together, why not discuss a plan? Maybe plan to meet up with each other, or something... sorry if its been posted...

    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...

    Hi everyone! I have a friend who is very new to prepping. She told a friend of hers that I am prepping. Obviously she doesn't know about OPSEC. I asked her not to tell her friend where I live or anything and she said that she understands. Anyway, she said that this friend wants to know why...

    Lately, several posts have popped up about trying to get the heck out of urban areas during a SHTF situation. My general feelings teamed with opinions of most on this board, it seems a strong consensus has been reached regarding urbans areas being bad places to be if a crisis strikes. I...
