We live in uncertain times and with constant threats knocking at our doors. One day, we might live under Martial Law and although the use of Martial law should bring end to the scenario that imposed it, most of the times it will lead to further violence and chaos. The United States, like many other nations has a long history when it comes to Martial law and some fear it may soon be upon us. The current scenarios that foresee Martial law are all related to ISIS attacks that could happen on US soil. This is why you need to have a survival strategy for when Martial law hits.

Bug In and Staying Put!
So here goes the debate of so many preparedness sites. Personally I will Bug In depending on the situation. If the situation warrants it the most commonsense approach would be to stay put, especial if you have prepared properly and have a number of supplies and resources. First off you would have supplies, shelter, hopefully running water if you have designed a well system to run off emergency power such as a generator, solar power or hand pump and a heat source such as a wood burning stove with plenty of fuel.

Decided to get out into the snow and work on some new images and graphics for the blog. Wanted to see how well the East German snow poncho blended in with the recent snow we had.I’ve had this now for two years and finally had a decent enough snow to go try it out. Great for covering yourself and any gear you may be carrying, This is big enough to be worn over a backpack and still provide good coverage.
