Winter Tips on Staying Warm

With the shorter days, freezing conditions, wet weather and wind your chances of hypothermia increase.  Here are a few tips to keeping warm in the winter.
Food
Food is essential for winter survival.  It is a necessity for creating and maintaining proper body heat.  The calories in food produce energy and heat through the digestion process. It is for this reason that it is important to have adequate food supplies during the winter months. In case of a disaster or power outages you should store plenty of non-perishable food that requires no refrigeration or cooking.  Some of these foods can include freeze dried foods, nuts, crackers, canned food, grain, and dehydrated fruits and vegetables.
Water
Store plenty of water, even during the winter.  Don’t let the cold mislead you,   Water aids in Continue reading Winter Tips on Staying Warm

Pine Trees For Survival!

The “Pine Tree” can quite arguably be considered the Survivalists (and Preppers) number one friend in the forest. Not only can every part of this highly versatile king of the woods be used, but those uses can range anywhere from shelter and heat to food and medicinal purposes, and even some less well known uses like glue and gum! We are fortunate that so many forested areas of our country contain varieties of this majestic friend from the towering sugar pines and ponderosas in the west, the pinyon in the southwest, the loblolly in the southeast, the eastern white pine in the northeast, and many more. All told, there are between 105 and 125 species worldwide, a third of which are right here in the U.S!

Let’s take a look at an overview of the different parts of the pine tree and see what uses those parts can serve. (We will look more in depth at each part Continue reading Pine Trees For Survival!

Finding direction with your watch

Have you ever been in the outdoors with no compass and wondered which way is north, south? You can use your watch. Hold your watch in front of you facing the sun. Rotate your watch so that the hour hand is pointing in the direction of the sun. Halfway between the hour hand and 12 will be your north-south line. For instance: If it is 10:00 point the hour hand “ten” towards the sun. Halfway between 10:00 and 12:00 is 11:00. 11:00 is your north south direction.

Digital watch? If the hour is 10:00 on your watch draw a clock face on the ground with the hour hand pointing to 10:00 in line with the sun. Halfway between this point and 12:00 on your clock you drew is your north south direction.

This can vary depending on time of year etc. but will give you general direction.

Prepper: How To Render Animal Fat (tallow or lard)

Posted by peachsncream on American Preppers Network
How to Melt (Render) Animal Fat

Beef fat is called tallow and pig fat is called lard. Poultry fat is too soft to be used by itself, but it may be used in a ratio of about 10% with tallow or lard. Bear fat may also be used but it must be melted (rendered) quickly after the bear has been killed because bear fat will quickly become rancid. You may also use the fat from farm animals such as sheep or goats, and a variety of wild animals, such as beaver, opossum, raccoon, and groundhog. If there is any lean meat still… Continue reading Prepper: How To Render Animal Fat (tallow or lard)
