Strategic Relocation: Finding The Best Place to Live if SHTF

by Sierra Grey Robert Burns once wrote, “The best-laid schemes o’ mice an’ men gang aft agley.”. Translated—no matter how well we plan, things often fail, turn out wrong, or go awry. Humans have limitations. We possess only fragments of knowledge and limited experience. Pride and emotions cloud our thinking. Only God plans perfectly. We, mortals, are left to hope we have planned well enough to survive what comes. And learn from our mistakes early in...

Are Preppers Normal? Blending Prepping Into Your “Normal” Lifestyle…

By: Matt in the Midwest I enjoy prepping. I value independence, self-sufficiency, and taking responsibility for myself. I consider it a hobby with perks.

The family disaster communications plan… by Moira M You are at home waiting on the cable guy on a drizzly Monday morning.

How to Make a Rabbit Cage

by Anthony Purpura For the longest time, I was toiling with the idea of getting rabbits for my homestead.  As we all know they grow fast, the feed to finished meat ratio is the best of almost any animal, they don’t require a lot of space and they are easy to raise and you can do it almost anywhere. So what was stopping me from starting the adventure?  Well, like you guys and gals I...

How to Make a Seed Starter Box

By Juleigh Howard-Hobson Mirrored flush-mounted bathroom medicine cabinets are easily one of the most non-upcycled objects out there. They are short and shallow. They don’t stand by themselves. And, frankly, they aren’t very nice to look at once they are out of their recessed wall enclosure. But, the thing is, just about every house has one…sometimes two or more. You can pick them up for a song at garage sales, rebuilding centers or CraigsList. Sometimes...

by Ron G Think of this as a primer if you will. It is written to cover the basics that will matter most to you as a prepper. I am intentionally leaving out a lot of technical jargon; there are others willing to throw that out at you.  There will be some terms and concepts that do need to be understood. One I will use a lot is Ground Zero (GZ). Ground Zero is that...
