Medical, Dental and Vision

Part of your planning should include at least three of the usual medical issues we deal with yearly. Medical, Dental and Vision care. Each year, the average American worker goes through an insurance “open enrollment” period, where his insurance options are up for review and modification. The actual renewal date is when those provisions begin a calendar year period of service.

Taking advantage of your benefits must be a part of your preps. It doesn’t matter how much or how

DIA Director - "China preparing for space warfare"

Army Lt. Gen. Ronald L. Burgess, director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, disclosed new details of China’s space weapons programs last week, including information regarding China’s anti-satellite missiles and cyber warfare capabilities.

Burgess stated in little-noticed written testimony prepared for an appearance before the Senate Armed Services Committee that Beijing is developing missiles, electronic jammers, and lasers for use against satellites.

Much of the space warfare activity is being carried out under the guise of China’s supposedly non-military space program,

Are You Planning to Find a New Job?

From Zero Hedge.

On Friday, Gallup’s mid-month unemployment reading, which covers the preceding 30 days, jumped from 8.3% in mid-January, the low point since the financial crisis, to 9.0%. An astounding increase. And its Job Creation Index confirmed that trend, dropping from +16 in January to +13 in February.

I had a feeling that the numbers early this year were not entirely on the mark. This information bears following. Job creation is, to me, a serious indicator of near future

Suturing, or Closing a Wound

This is an overview of Suturing. “Sewing” a wound closed is not simply sticking needles through skin and tying knots. Different methods apply to different wounds. What I want to do here is share some YouTube suturing videos with you, and illustrate the need for training not just in method, but also in application. If you are going to add this skill to your bag of tricks, do what you can to get some professional training. Viewing of these videos

BOL (Bug Out Locations) - How Far Away?

As with just about any question an inquisitive prepper poses, the answer often begins with yet another question. “How far away from what, exactly?” The underlying expectation of most asking this question is an answer that will help them decide how far away from everything, everyone, is safe. Grid down, TEOTWAWKI, ______ collapse, you name it…. the disaster of each person’s dreams is the foundation for their preparations.

“….from what?” Answer that first. In general, a BOL is positioned such

Check Your Freeze Dried Food Ingredients

LTS foods promise us the ability to eat well years down the road. We put them up and say, “When things are bad, I’ll have some good food that hasn’t spoiled.” Freeze dried foods are the cream of the crop when it comes to long term storage, in shelf life, taste and light weight. They are offered in complete entrees, breakfast selections, deserts and individual ingredients for the prepper chef! On the surface, they answer all prepper needs except for

Hiding Your Condition in Hard Times

Scenario…

It’s 3 months after the grid has suffered major disruptions. The cause for this is unimportant. Deliveries of the basics is extremely spotty and FEMA is having a hard time controlling what remains of civilian supply chains. People are hungry, but not starving to death. It seems that most everything is hard to come by. People have made adjustments and, aside from the few vocal protests and the occasional violent display of discontent, the population has settled down into

Were They Prepared?

In the currently frozen north (Washington), in a little town about 40 minutes away from Mt. Rainier, there are 3 ladies in a nice sized home on over 5 acres. They have 3 stories, an attached garage, a creek, wooded land and a secure location just at the end of a semi-private road.

A few days ago, the ice and snow blew up a few transformers in the area, and tree branches added their weight to the problems by downing
