Being shot, or, hit with indirect shrapnel, is not a problem many of us want to imagine having to deal with. Some preppers, believe it or not, refuse to acknowledge that fighting may ever occur.

Hope this gives you a few ideas on items you haven’t checked off your bug out bag checklist quite yet. We know one bug out bag isn’t right for every occasion, but this is how we are packing our bags for a TEOTWAWKI scenario.

According to the World Health Organization, the H7N9 bird flu virus is one the most lethal influenza strains ever identified… If this virus has become transmittable by way of human to human contact it’s likely that government officials, in an effort to prevent panic, will wait as long as possible before they disseminate information to the public.

I pray every day that these things never come to pass and that my children will be able to grow up in the land of the free and the home of the brave as I have. But know this; you will have in your life a defining moment in the upcoming world we live in. By taking some time now to write down different scenarios and analyze your response to different situations you will at least have the luxury of defining the moment on your terms instead of the alternative where you allow the moment to define you.

Do you want to know what it’s really like? If so, then the best place to acquire first hand information about what you’ll experience when the world as we know it collapses is from combat veterans and people who have been through the worst of what humanity has to offer…

Make no mistake, Cyprus is a trial run and they will be coming for money in your accounts very soon. So, what can you do about it?

Catastrophes occur all the time. Sometimes they are regional, sometimes they are national, and sometimes they are global. Since the age of the baby boomer, America has been spared widespread disaster for the most part, and this has bred in us a deep-rooted normalcy bias

According to first responders on the scene the plane was, “completely totaled in the wreck, after flipping and partially detaching the wings.”

SHTF doesn’t generally drop by at the best of times. In fact, SHTF thrives and grows exponentially under more adverse circumstances.

Where are you going to draw the line?
- March 5th, 2013
While most of us think of things like natural disasters, economic collapse and pandemics, many occurrences are much more mundane. They are those small personal disasters that can hit any of us, at any time.
- March 3rd, 2013
Diversification and assuming that multiple events of varying degrees and effects can play out is critical to any complete SHTF plan. If you’re caught unprepared with none of these ‘hard assets’ in your personal inventory, how will you manage?

The first things to go will be food, clean water, sanitation and human decency.

The great dilemma in being a prepper: How do we divide or allocate our limited money and resources the wisest way possible? We want to be both prepared for eventualities and still have opportunities for profit. We want to be prosperous no matter what happens, either a free stable trend, or to hell in a hand basket. We will examine some of these decisions and what tools we need to land on the right side of profitable vs prepared.

Once again, preppers are left, shaking our heads, asking what it will take to wake people up.
- February 7th, 2013
What separates the prepper from the average Joe who buys insurance is the lifestyle of a prepper. Preppers just think differently than most people. Preppers are independent thinkers who instead of wanting to be taken care of, we want to produce and provide and sacrifice the now for the future.

Today, just a short time after a financial collapse that rocked global financial markets, Europe’s darling has turned into a frightening example of what happens when governments and their people take on more debt than they can ever hope to repay.
- February 5th, 2013
Preparing for an actual worst case scenario is similar to the preparations one would make for extended period without adequate food and water supplies and access to emergency services.
- February 4th, 2013
As you might have noticed by this point, there’s more to preps and gearing up for a civilization reboot than just stacking, racking, and packing. There’s more to it all than just getting good at the rifle range.There is civilization itself.

It was an astounding discovery. The mountain was more than 150 miles from the nearest settlement, in a spot that had never been explored. The Soviet authorities had no records of anyone living in the district.

Are you preparing for the collapse of society? If so, the truth is that you are definitely not alone.
- January 19th, 2013
You need to weigh the risks of bugging out vs. hunkering down and make your final decision based on logic and type of threat. That’s the way decisions should be made, unfortunately many people when making plans for survival side with emotion (that emotion being to run and hide) instead of the more tried and true form of decision-making known as logic.

When you ask someone a question, they are almost forced to think about what you just said and come up with a response. And without a doubt, the fact that America is in decline is undeniable. Those that would choose to blindly have faith in the system are foolish, because it is glaringly obvious that the system is failing.

Have you noticed that it has become trendy to bash preppers? For a long time the prepper movement was ignored, but now it has become so large that it is getting very difficult for the mainstream media to pretend that it is not there.

As survivalists who are preparing to make an economic end-game scenario as “comfortable” to live through as we can, it is incumbent upon us to consider the kind of company we keep during the gambit.
- December 6th, 2012
Gone are the days in which people were highly inspired to put away for tomorrow in the off-chance that things become lean and scarce. That kind of thinking has been replaced with the commercial paradigm of “living for the moment”…
- December 4th, 2012
The government has gone to great lengths to let us know that there are no potential threats on the horizon…
- December 2nd, 2012
Instead of looking down our noses at citizen preppers, and smugly judge their reasons, we should focus on what we have in common, and learn to work with them…

If you can’t afford to have an off-grid electrical system installed at your home, does this mean that you are destined for an over-crowded shelter, or worse, doomed to failure in the event of a down-grid situation?
- November 26th, 2012
Now we were totally exposed. Vulnerable. As a result, we’ve had to move ALL of our supplies elsewhere – off-site – because we had mistakenly trusted…
- November 24th, 2012
Unlike most survival/preparation resources, we’re going to assume that civilization will break down completely, and will likely take at least a century or more to return to the level it is now…

The turkey spends the majority of its life enjoying daily feedings from a caring farmer. Weeks go by, and it’s the same thing day-in-day-out for the Turkey. Free food. Open range grazing. Good times all around.

If FEMA and DHS are incapable of dealing with an emergency that affects less than 1% of the US population simultaneously, what type of response should the American people reasonably expect in the event of a sustained wide-scale disaster?

An explosive narrative following a catastrophic collapse.
- November 5th, 2012
This is crazy, it’s like post-apocalyptic scenarios, you know with this gas. It’s as important as food and water to people. It’s a dogfight out here…
- November 5th, 2012
Whether you’re just realizing the importance of preparing for unforeseen disasters, or you’re a seasoned prepper, you can never have too much information at your fingertips.
- November 1st, 2012
The vast majority of those waiting in mile-long long food lines, rummaging through the trash, and criticizing their government officials for a slow and insufficient response have no one to blame but themselves. This may be harsh – but it’s true.
- October 31st, 2012
Without any way to heat their homes due to power outages, no food in their pantries and water supplies potentially tainted with polluted flood waters, those who failed to prepare are now at the mercy of the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s crisis safety net.

The popular assumption is that if you have sizable food storage and can shoot straight, you are ready to rock-and-roll. Reality has some harsh lessons for those with this mindset.

Feeling alone or that you’re the only one who “gets it” is not uncommon for us Preppers…

We have seen them all before… But the next time we are visited by widespread, large-scale urban riots, a dangerous new escalation may be triggered by a fresh vulnerability: It’s estimated that the average American home has less than two weeks of food on hand…
- October 8th, 2012
These riots will soon be making their way across the Atlantic ocean to our shores…We can fully expect a total breakdown of law and order, especially in America’s major metropolitan areas.
- October 5th, 2012
What is the threat? As a prepper hunkered down at your home, with food stores, the most likely threat will be from looters and marauders…The worst case is some sort of organized paramilitary style force with heavy equipment bent on forced redistribution…

We have been programmed for a long time now (since the inception of TV) to go only for the brass ring and not to bother enjoying the ride. We’ve been programmed to place our self-worth in the hands of consumerism. And that means our personal value derives from an accounting of our money. What if there is no more money? Will you have any value without it?

Every person will face an ugly new reality when life as we know it vanishes. It’s coming. Soon. It might be a slow crawl decline or a rapid descent into nightmarish conditions. Various scenarios now flit threateningly across the horizon. If we’re brave enough to peer into the abyss, we can see some of these events bordering on fruition. Most are unnerving; some will be paralyzing. Regardless of the fright factor, we must examine individually how to handle these looming crises. When they strike, people without a plan in place, will die.
