Nothing About a SHTF is Routine

Routines can be dangerous when lulled into indifference. You know your daily routines like the back of your hand. Most likely you do 90% of the same things the same exact way every day you get out of bed. I bet you are headed to Starbucks right now for another $5 cup of Jo-Jo with a whip. Or rushing to pack your briefcase or purse to pick the kids up at school so you can jump ahead of the long line of buses? I guess we call that life. Some just call it our routines. By Dr. John J. Woods, a contributing author to SHTFBlog & Survival Cache Many might call it a rut. We all… [Read More...]

Five Minor Home Problems That Can Become A Disaster During An Emergency

Often, we take note of minor household repairs that need to be done and place them in the back of our mind, never to be fixed. From a small leak to clogged gutters, these seemingly small issues can always wait another day or another week or another month, or so we believe. Yet in emergency situations such as flooding, severe freezing and power outages, minor repairs that we have consistently neglected can lead to major home disasters. LeaksA leak can serve to be nothing more than an irritant in our household. Whether you choose to ignore it or place a pot underneath it, leaks often seem to be a minor issue. Yet during intense rains… [Read More...]

From the Desk of John Rourke – March 16th, 2015

Selling off all my airsoft stuff. No time to play and taking up so much room. Need more trigger time – – on real guns. ◊ ◊ ◊ ◊ ◊ If I had the money I would open up a shooting range in my area. There are very few places to go and they all have too many restrictions. No drawing from a holster. No rapid fire shooting(must have two seconds between rounds). One place is pistol only. Another only has one rifle range. It would make a killing. ◊ ◊ ◊ ◊ ◊ I never served in the military and it is one… [Read More...]

FAT GUYS IN THE WOODS: BLOG SKILL SERIES: Become a Fire Walker – Apache Match

You’ve probably noticed that I’ll often send the guys off on the morning of their solo day with some kind of fire carry method. The ability to carry fire is an important survival skill for a variety of reasons. First, if you can carry fire, you don’t have to recreate your fire start all over again. It typically takes less energy and calories to carry fire than to start all over from scratch. Survival is all about conserving calories. Second, it’s not hard to imagine that you’ve used the last of your fire starting materials. Maybe you only had 1 match? Maybe you’re all out of char cloth? The ability to travel with fire once you’ve created it … [Read More...]

There Is No Way Around It: “The Manner In Which We Live Today Is About To Drastically Change”

Editor’s Note: The following article from Brandon Smith of Alt Market is a continuation of his series One Last Look At The Real Economy Before It Implodes (Part 1). As Brandon points out, the economic data being disseminated to the public is full of lies and half truths, and any meaningful information is often obfuscated from the general public. While claims of 5.5% unemployment are met with cheers on both Wall Street and Main Street, the reality of the situation is that our economic system is collapsing in its entirety because fully one-third of our available workforce is producing absolutely nothing. This, coupled with massive personal debt for everything from homes to student loans, is the reason behind the collapse within… [Read More...]
