Is There a Best Bunker?

Update 09/29/13 – New article listing shelter manufacturers.

What if they gave a bunker party and no one could find it? LOL!

Whatever the purpose of the bunker, you certainly don’t want it to be known that you have one. So you better pass up the opportunity to be on any of the “Doomsday” shows. Don’t invite the reality shows over for a look-see, because they and everyone else will see it. See?

Seriously, folks… the best bunker is the

What Is Important to Some Preppers ...

… might seem silly to others.

I had the opportunity to see inside the mind of a prepper today. This guy has been removed from the scene due to some strange activities he conducted. Illegal activities. The kind that any sane person would run away from – quickly and quietly. Anyway, he left behind some storage units that went into arrears, and were auctioned-off. A family friend invited us over to take a peek and see what the guy had

Back from the Coast, & the MedCallOutfitter Kit

I was out West with the better half, recharging our batteries. We had a refreshing time walking the shores and experiencing that peace we find on the sands, watching the sun go down, and listening to the waves at night.

But now we’re back, and some work has lined up for us. This last week, we had the opportunity to examine the specialized MedCallOutfitter Kit™, created by MedCallAssist™. This kit is more than a collection of First-Aid items in a

$5 per Gallon - Fond Memories?

What would you say if I were to ask you, “Would you ever wish for gas at $5 per gallon? Well, I’m asking. I heard a report today that described the fuel needs present in China and India. It stated that by next year, they very well could be demanding the importation of oil at a rate larger than what the world can provide to them.

From “Fueling the Dragon – China’s Race into the Oil Market”

With 1.3 billion

Gas Prices Going Up. Now What?

Here’s a link to a AAA gas price site. The Daily Fuel Gauge Report. Prices momentarily topped $5 /gallon in southern California. The trend is up. The L.A. Times wrote in January that….

“Not only are we worrying about the end of the world in 2012 — thanks, Maya calendar makers — but this also may be the year of the gas-pocalypse, analysts warn. That’s because gasoline prices are the highest ever for the start of the year, and they’re

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

Preparing for a Computer-less Age

What would you do without your computer, be it a PC, MAC or Linux machine? You certainly wouldn’t be reading this post, would you? Or any other post – anywhere.

Or ….. would you?

Today, you likely popped onto the net and did a few searches and found this wonderful place. You read a few things and made some mental notes. You also could be reading this as part of a printout of items you thought necessary to keep. Many

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

Water Storage - Part II

It would be quite a task to review the various means of treating and storing water, so I won’t do that here. Your personal situation will dictate to you what your treatment and storage particulars should be. However you attack the issue, though, keep in mind that the water that goes into your body needs to be as pure as possible, especially in times of high stress, when impurities of all kinds will have an easier time of killing you.
