Living in Your Car to Save Money or Out of Necessity

by J. Cirerol For over a year, I slept and lived in my car in Los Angeles, California. I moved to Los Angeles for a dream and did not realize how expensive it was to live there. So I began planning in my head and thinking about how I might save money and how I might get out of the frustrating living situation I was in at the time. I decided living and sleeping in my car...

HOW TO KILL Cockroaches

How To Get Rid Of Cockroaches Without An Exterminator

by Tia G. Growing up, I had the pleasure of never seeing a roach, except on T.V. I grew up with the assumption that only dirty people had roaches. When I moved to Texas, I found out how wrong that assumption was. Even the cleanest of homes can get infested with roaches and it doesn’t take much. My first apartment in Texas appeared to be clean. Nice neighborhood, clean grounds, the apartment itself looked and “smelled” clean,...

Will Pacemakers Survive an EMP?

by Arthur T. Bradley, Ph.D. A surgeon recently wrote to ask whether a modern pacemaker would survive an EMP. It would have been easy to provide a gut reaction and say, “No way!” After all, an EMP might generate fields on the order of 50 kV/m. But is that answer correct? The surgeon went so far as to ask the pacemaker manufacturer (Medtronic) if they thought the device would survive. The company didn’t have an...

How to Make Homemade Soap Bars for Beginners

by Krystal Brown Making your own soap is an enjoyable and useful activity. Homemade soaps are also better for the skin because they contain glycerin. Glycerin is a natural product of the soap making process. But, with many commercial soaps, the glycerin is removed and used to make lotions and other cosmetics. With self-made soaps, the glycerin is not removed and you will benefit from its soothing and moisturizing effects. When you are just starting...

Palmetto State Armory (PSA) AR-15 Review

Palmetto State Armory firearms are a “MADE entirely IN America” firearms manufacturer that has created a stand out product within an industry full of products. There have been dozens even hundreds of AR15 manufacturers within the United States, among these, there are few that hold up to the full expectations of what an AR15 can be. Modern AR15s can be extremely reliable, accurate, and versatile firearms. Palmetto State Armory is one of the few manufacturers that has consistently turned...

What’s The Best Rifle Sling For The AR-15?

by Joe Nobody One extremely important accessory for a shoulder-fired weapon is frequently overlooked by preppers. It is unpretentious, cheap, readily available, and easy to install. It’s the sling. Suffering from a lack of sex appeal, lost in a plethora of available furniture, and definitely not the cover-girl of gun porn, the lowly sling often suffers from a lack of appreciation – until your body has paid the price. Through the years, I have conducted...

Skills Every Young Man Should Know

“What the Young Man Should Know” From Harper’s Magazine 1933

By Robert Littell, 1933 Glancing out of the window, I can see the subject–and eventual victim–of this inquiry, dangerously perched in the crotch of an old chestnut tree, about fifteen feet above the ground. Should I rush out and tell him to get down? Or should I let him be, hoping that he won’t climb any higher, or, if he does climb any higher, hoping that he will not fall? It is probably all right,...

What did you do to prep this week

Good morning (or evening, or whenever you’re reading this), I hope that you all have had a great week and used the time for good instead of evil, I say that because, well no doubt at least a couple of you are probably planning on taking over the world and enslaving the human population or something like that… Anyway, all joking aside I hope that everyone got something done this week and yes, even small things...

What’s The Difference Between Military and Civilian Firearms?

The more it changes, the more it is the same thing. Alphonse Karr 1849 Arguments against civilian ownership of firearms have been debated as far back as the innovation of firearms. I am certain at some point a Roman Cesar or Egyptian Pharaoh also launched campaigns against the evils of the civilian owned swords or spears as well. There is a reason “civilized” nations tend to want no non-government employee ownership of firearms. It is...

Well, folks, it’s pouring the rain here as I write this but I’m not complaining because, well, I like the rain. It’s relaxing and most of the time it has a positive effect on my allergies. So it’s a win for me… well until I have to mow my grass which grows faster after it rains and the grass messes with my allergies… I just can’t win… Anyways, I’ve read a few comments (on another site)...

What did you do to prep this week?

Well, folks, here we are again! Another week of prepping and homesteading. A lot of folks have stopped prepping altogether after Trump took office because they now feel secure, they think that their guns are safe so all is well. I saw an example of this thinking yesterday when I was at the local gun shop. The owner and a few others were talking about how great Trump is and how it was God himself that put...

How To Take A Shower In The Woods – Handy Shower Review

Showering while hunting, fishing, camping and just being outside after a good hike is something that is essential and refreshing. Personally, my family has used, abused and gone through 3 or 4 solar/camping showers in the past decade. When the creator of Handy Shower contacted me I decided to accept his offer to review the product in exchange for the product. This is one of the ones I am certainly glad I accepted and did not turn down. Due...

Homesteading and Prepping Open Discussion Forum

Well, folks, it’s one of those mornings… one of those mornings that I wake up feeling like I’ve been hit by a Mac truck with Hillary Clinton at the wheel and driving distracted because she was looking for a Trump Russia collision. That’s the bad thing about living in Tennessee is the constant bombardment by some sort of pollen, dust, or mold spore. I love Tennessee but honestly, I’ve thought about moving to a different...
