5 DIY Ways to Power Your Home During Floods

5 DIY Ways to Power Your Home During Floods

One of the threats that our homes constantly face, especially in the spring or right after a rainstorm, is flood. Flash floods can strike in an instant and are very devastating when they do. When one does strike, chances are high that the power system in your town will go out and it will take several days if not weeks to get it up and running even after the flood has subsided. To be prepared for this, you’ll need a system that allows you to power your home until after the flood has ended and the power is back up. Fortunately,...

Building a Long-Term Wilderness Survival Shelter

Building a Long-Term Wilderness Survival Shelter

If you end up out in the wilderness for an extended period of time, you’ll need more than a tent to stay in. Tents are fine when the weather is good, but they really don’t provide much insulation when the weather turns cold. Added to that, they are somewhat fragile, so the material will eventually dry out and tear. The biggest need for any long-term shelter is to keep you warm. That’s easier to do if the shelter is built out of flame-resistant materials, so that your heating and cooking fire can be kept inside the shelter, rather than in...

The Perfect Place to Sleep in the Woods

The Perfect Place to Sleep in the Woods

In the first Hunger Games move, Katniss Everdeen, the main character, grabs a pack full of equipment at the cornucopia, before running off into the woods. Within that pack, she finds a hank of rope, which she uses to tie herself up in a tree to sleep at night. While I don’t envy her trying to sleep while sitting up, her sleeping in the trees has a lot to be said for it; but what she really needed was a hammock. Typically, when we talk about bugging out and sleeping in the woods, most of us think of sleeping on...

Making Yourself Invisible

Making Yourself Invisible

There’s a lot of talk about fighting techniques, training and weapons across the prepping and survival community. We all have an expectation that we’ll need to fight to protect home and family, when things fall apart and the SHTF. But I’ve always thought the best way to win a fight is to avoid it all together. You see, every time you get into any sort of fight, you’re taking a chance with your life. I don’t care how good you are, there’s somebody better out there. You’re much better off not letting them find you, than ending up in a...
