When the SHTF, Cities Will Burn…Not!

~Contact.FirstName~ Welcome to this week's SurviveInPlace.com Urban Survival Newsletter. This week we're going to talk about why the cities won't burn to the ground after a major disaster and breakdown in civil order. Many say that when the SHTF, EVERYONE left in the city will be killed…and killed again! The only cars will be burned out shells, and all of the buildings will be burned to the ground. It'll be worse than a nuclear explosion. After a couple of weeks, the only food left for … Continue reading...

Suvival Clothing

One thing people sometimes forget about is the need for proper clothing for survival situations. Further complicating the issue is the convenience of heated vehicles and homes, rendering clothing capable of sustaining our temperatures for more than the trip from the toasty house to the toasty car unnecessary. People tend to think as they always have, tending to be resistant to changing mental gears, until it's too late. Don't be one of those people.

Dow Head & Shoulders. A Few Reasons Why Cities Are Better Survival Locations Than Rural Areas

I'm always reminded when I have a limited calorie intake for a day or two how important it is to make plans … Continue reading...

Gold as a storage medium has an extremely limited use; it is a great way to move about great amounts of wealth more easily. (That’s why we invented paper money, but gold avoids the inflation problem by inflating equally.) Say you need a leg set and casted up in a dire pinch; insurances are gone, hospitals turning folks away if they don’t have cash. A couple … Continue reading...
