The 2020 lockdown affected us all in some big ways, like loss of jobs, mobility, and freedom of choice, but it has also affected us in small ways. Most notably obtaining supplies. This is where a 3D printer can increase your survival odds in a big way.  No matter what, your need for a new thermos, perhaps, or any gear related to keeping us prepared was prohibited for a long while. And even if you could, the threat of COVID may have convinced you not to go out at all. Odds are your store of choice wasn’t even open, and sometimes, what you needed was out of stock.

The “gray man” creates, nourishes, and maintains a polytropic (able to take many courses of action, adaptable) personality. This personality responds to external stimuli as necessary in the pursuit of a single goal: moving undetected. Likewise, the gray man survives worst-case scenarios by trusting his mindset, attitude, and skills. This mindset helps the gray man in his pursuit of going off-grid for undetected movement in any environment. Going Off-Grid with the Gray Man Mindset Becoming a gray man is far from being an enigmatic concept that is beyond the reach of most. It actually has a lot ..read more

Too often we analyze survival scenarios from a gear centric point of view. What do I mean? We must see past post-apocalyptic zombie horde in our survival thinking.

These Emergency Signal Essentials Bring Rescuers to You Editor’s Note: Before we get into calling for help without a cell phone, we want to clarify that if your phone has power but no signal, 911 still works. When you dial 911, your phone initiates its emergency call function to send a signal to the nearest cell tower. You’re stranded in the middle of nowhere, injured and without help in sight. Your cell phone is dead and it’s not going to be the lifeline you were counting on it to be. Whether you find yourself in the deepest of forests or stalled out on the most desolate of desert highways, t ..read more
