What You Cannot Live Without!

What You Cannot Live Without!
James Walton “I Am Liberty” Audio player below!

What You Cannot Live WithoutAs survivalists and preppers its pretty common that we get asked or ask ourselves the question of what 5 things or what 10 things would you bring into the wilderness or whatever scenario. While there are some prepping items that must be part of the equation in a collapse scenario I want to discuss something that many preppers are not considering at all. You know, fear is a huge predicator when it comes to what a prepper does. That’s ok. I think that’s pretty smart this day and age. Read more “What You Cannot Live Without!”

Thanksgiving off grid workshop making candles!

Thanksgiving off grid workshop making candles!

Thanksgiving off grid workshop making candlesLiving off grid for most means solar power for light to see when darkness falls and solar means sun. But when living in norther or southern latitudes the sun does not visit long and is often obscured by snow, rain, or a few clouds. We can not rely totally on solar and so we become creative to stay out of the dark. On this Thanksgiving day we went to the office/workshop to make candles. No, for us this is not work but only the beginning of Thanksgiving day in the mountains of northern Idaho.  Follow along for our tip on how to create your own light.

Essential Prepper gearIn the Prepper community there seems to be two prevailing purchasing strategies for gear. Buy cheap and buy often, or buy once cry once.

Hygiene and being resourceful!

Hygiene and being resourcefulWhen you talk about threats in a post disaster scenario it’s easy to get wrapped up in the obvious. I wouldn’t begrudge anyone for having fear of roving mobs of the desperate, life threatening conditions of the environment around us or even the very real possibility of starvation. These are threats that people in perilous situations face all over the world. We don’t see them very often close to home but when disaster strikes the threats to our well being come screaming back into reality. Read more “Hygiene and being resourceful!”
