Water will eventually or quickly become one of your most urgent needs during a survival situation. Believe it or not, you cannot survive much beyond a few days without any water whatsoever, especially in a hot environment where you are losing water rapidly through perspiration. Even in a cold environment without exertion, you may need a minimum of 2 quarts (about 1/2-gallon) of water each day to maintain some bodily efficiency. More than 3/4 of your body is composed of fluids. Your body loses fluid as a result of heat, cold, stress, and exertion. To function effectively, you must replace

If and when it’s time to bug out or if you need to get back home during a major disaster or regional crisis, have you ever thought about the best way (route) to get there? Observation: Have you ever walked in the woods and noticed the trails and paths that have been formed by the animals traveling them? We too as humans travel along our own regular routes in our day to day lives. They are typically the quickest and most efficient routes to get from here to there, and are the same routes traveled by most others. We are

I’ve written quite a number of articles on the topic of a survival kit. Many of them are referenced here as a 72 hour kit. I was thinking about how we label them or refer to them in different ways. – survival kit – 72 hour kit – bug out bag – get home bag The thing is, some of them might be purposed towards specific circumstances while others are just general kits. That’s the beauty of it… you can tailor it to your needs. I have a number of “survival kits” and each of them are designed for a

“What changes the dial in this country anymore?” Listening to a talk show the other day, something was said that rings especially true… It’s a media industrial complex. I’m not going to waste my time with anger, it doesn’t get me anywhere, it doesn’t change the dial at all. What changes the dial in this country at this point in time is very hard to know. Does the news change the dial? Not really. Does fake news change the dial? Definitely. It’s relentless, it’s around the clock, it’s propaganda. Everyone that you watch on television with rare exception is part

Gardening is fun. EXCEPT for those darn weeds that keep coming up! Weeding is easier to deal with in a raised garden bed (less bending over), especially if the raised bed is 2 feet tall or thereabouts! But what about a regular garden? Lots more bending! Not only that, but the larger the garden the more weeds to pull! And if you say “the heck with it” and let them grow, not only will it interfere with your garden plants but it will probably turn into a mass of sod – making it even more difficult to deal with later

Take a vacation. It’s good for your health! De-stress… good for modern survival. I’m typing this in the middle of July. It feels like everyone’s on vacation. I’m sure many are! So why not go off topic here and do a post on favorite vacation spots and get some of your own input. Seems like a good time for it… Question: If you asked people if they would rather vacation “near the water” or “near the mountains”, I wonder what the percentage would be… Okay, here’s a poll. Let’s see what happens:   One’s choice for a vacation spot will

Guest post: by Christine Coburn The following post was originally aired during 2012. I haven’t heard from Christine in years. However I felt the value of her insight and effort having written this to justify a re-post and your further comments.   There is nothing more frustrating when you have worked hard to get a batch of food prepared to can, and then your canner doesn’t work right. After 30 years of canning I have learned several canning “tricks”, All of them the hard way. In order to understand what’s causing a problem and how to fix it, you first

I’m just putting it out there for those who may not have thought of this – it’s best NOT to use an ‘insulated’ (double wall) canteen for outdoor survival, and here’s why…   While reflecting on the article, 11 Most Popular Tools For Outdoor Survival, in which a stainless steel canteen with a screw-on lid is #4, I realized that there are a large number of canteens nowadays that are insulated to keep contents cool. For outdoor survival purposes, you want to look for a non-insulated single wall stainless steel canteen, and here’s why… Klean Kanteen Classic 27-Ounce Stainless Steel
