The #1 emergency item most sought after in times of disaster is WATER! Just watch the news when a catastrophe hits and what fills shopping carts more than anything else. The most recent headline read: “Ohio water crisis: threat isn’t going away soon” and this happened void of any natural occurrence such as an earthquake or tornado. […]
Never let your gas tank get below half full. If there is an evacuation and you have to get out of town quickly, being short on gas could spell disaster. We’ve seen it before, especially in the winter or hurricane season. Sometimes, even in the best of times, we’ve seen the lines at the gas pumps long and […]
Can You Hear It? Can You Feel It? It started a very, very long time ago and throughout much of that time, it has escalated ever so subtly and slowly that we’ve become desensitized to the warnings. It’s the result of a fallen world and we’re going to soon see the hand of God move as we […]
Prepping isn’t just for natural disasters but also man-made catastrophes or other unforeseen life-changing events. What if there is an accident and you face long-term disability? Do you live near a major highway or railroad line? Chemical spills that call for an evacuation are often in the news. What about a nuclear or chemical plant […]
“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 […]
I’ve been thinking a lot about Bug-out-locations and their necessity. I’ve decided, it depends on where you live now. Apartment or house? Small town or big city? If you live in the heart of a city, it might be good to have another designated place to go to should rioting or civil unrest break out. The farther out […]
Talk to your family NOW should anything happen and communications are cut off later on. Decide on a meeting place if that is possible and educate yourselves on back-up ways to communicate, such as shortwave radios, ham radios, or long distant walkie-talkies. Chances are you won’t find walkie-talkies that will go the distance you need, but as in […]
