“Does ANYONE ELSE out there know the significance of September 13?” September 13, 2015 marks the last day of the latest, year-long, Shemitah (God’s seven year cycles that go back to the Old Testament.) See Leviticus 25:1-4 and Deut. 15:1-2. Shemitahs are a sign of judgment based on the covenant (and relationship) with God. If the people […]
First, find yourself a tall, clean garbage can, hamper (old or new), or other container big enough to hold a lot of worn-out towels, sheets, t-shirts, pillowcases, etc. Instead of throwing them away, recycle them! I’ve been building up a supply for probably over 25 years in an old hamper that belonged to my grandma and I’ve actually used them for […]
Far too often, I tend to think in only one direction, like there’s only one way to do something. Such as a Go-Bag. To me, a pack needs everything from A-Z, nothing less – nothing more. When there’s too many items in a bag, the pack’s too heavy to carry. Too few items and your pack isn’t complete in emergencies. Recently, I was talking […]
The movie, The Day After Tomorrow, was released in 2004. It’s a fictional account of a father and son (along with others) surviving an unbelievable ice storm, primarily “on location” in New York City. While watching the movie, I picked up on a survival tip that totally makes sense. At one point in the movie, the climatologist father […]
A possible real scenario not too far down the road: “Things are really dire right now. Money is virtually useless because store shelves are empty and banks have closed their doors. Despite all I’ve done to prepare for the worst, there are some things I lack, partly because I didn’t correctly estimate amounts, and partly because different scenarios require […]
“The day before something happens, Preppers are idiots. The day after something happens, we’re geniuses!” -unknown By the time something has happened, it’s probably too late for non-Preppers. So, does this make them the “idiots?” No, but they could be considered foolish. When that time comes, my heart will go out to them, but it’s hard […]
Get to know your neighbors and build a good relationship with them. Okay, this may be hard for some, but when bad times hit, you may wish you had taken the time to get to know the people around you better. You don’t have to be best of friends, but have a friendship that will help each […]
Hamwiches are delicious and easy to make. Every time we make them for family or friends, they’re a big hit! At home, we put them on the grill but if camping, lay on hot coals, not over a flame. Turn frequently for 3-5 minutes cooking time. Time may vary. For 1 serving (multiply for each person you’ll be […]
For a lot of people, there’s no problem storing prepping items. Some have relatively empty basements and others might have extra, unused bedrooms or closets. Some might even have paid storage units that they can easily access. For others who live in apartments or just don’t have a lot of extra space, it could be a […]
