Deploying to Haiti & Preparedness While Traveling

To begin with, I want to thank everyone who is or will be deploying down to Haiti to help with the recovery and stabilization efforts. I will be praying for you. If you or anyone you know is among those deploying to Haiti, please get in contact with me ASAP. I am getting in touch […]

Practical Survival Gear For Daily Carry

I get emails fairly often asking me what survival gear people should carry on a daily basis. I can’t tell you what will work best for you, but I will tell you what I carry everyday. As a gear-junkie-minimalist, my tendency is to carry any and every cool toy that I have access to, but […]

UV Water Purification and Weapon Safety Around Kids

Two questions that I get asked often are about water purification and weapons safety around kids. Will UV Water Purification Work In An Urban Survival Situation? In short, it CAN work.  UV purification is very effective at killing viruses, bacteria, and protozoa and is used by municipalities, restaurants, and many households to purify not only […]

Scary Zombies & Surviving Breakdowns in Civil Order

You see, “zombie” is code for the masses of

Only Prepper in my area

I hope I’m wrong, but seemingly all my neighbors are the most “situation white” oblivious folks you could find.  I’ve always fantasized/hoped about finding aware alert neighbors who were interested in forming “sleeper cells” for our local security.  This is why I’m really digging the Survive In Place training.  I feel that there must be sheepdogs in […]

Mobility questions

Great info.   Trying to keep it all moving forward. I’ve been working on kit for a while now.   One for the car, house and most of my items in my motorhome.   I have never used a GPS.   I will rely on my own sense of direction.   Don’t they have a locator.   I personally am more […]

Do You Make This Critical Firearms Training Mistake?

This is a sponsored message from our friends at Tactical and Preparedness Solutions (David Morris) According to the FBI, 60-80% of all Law Enforcement shootings happen in low-light environments and in at least 39% of those, lighting was cited as a critical factor. It’s a safe bet that civilian numbers are similar. So I’d hope […]
