Getting A Good Survival Knife – By James Smith

In survival circumstances, when you are distant from everyone else and defenseless, your survival knife is your accomplice which goes with you wherever you go and whatever you do. It is the most critical survival device you need to finish whatever survival task there is. You require a decent survival knife to cut wood and cordage, to baton wood to make a way in the wild, to hunt and to make traps, to avoid dangers, and more.

Review: Trying Out The East German Snow Poncho

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.

Prepping On A Budget For Beginners

So Who Can Prep? Everyone!

Prepping can be done by anyone, you don’t have to be insanely wealthy which the average person is not. It can be done on a budget as well.

Start Out Small!

Begin by picking up a extra package of toilet paper, a dozen extra canned goods on sale each trip to the store.

I’ve heard you can even get a group together and head over to one of the Mormon cannery’s if there is one in your area and package up and can your own supplies for pretty cheap.

How to Build A Bug Out Bag. A Good Starting Point For New Preppers.

My personal Bug Out Bag.

What Is A Bug Out Bag?

A Bug Out Bag is designed to get you through a 72 hour event. Whether the emergency may be a natural storm disaster, Zombie Apocalypse or other TEOTWAWKI event. The bag should have enough items to get you through until either help arrives or you get to a predetermined bug out location.

Building a bag really depends on personal preference,  But some basic life sustaining items should be standard such as a temporary shelter, ways of creating fire, collecting and purifying water and a small 72 hours worth of food to get you through an event until you can either hunt or trap if necessary.
