Gear Up for Gardening Season

Over the years, I have to admit, we have spent more money on gardening than we have ever reaped in an actual harvest.

The actual tools I’ve used for gardening have ended up being the least expensive because I tracked down the best quality I could afford, …

How to Choose the Best Straw Water Filter For You

We so casually turn on our faucet and expect clean water to come out. We flush our toilets, wash our hands, use water for cooking and for watering the lawn without a thought. But if there’s anything we have learned from all the disasters that have happened in our country last year, it’s that we should not take clean water for granted. It doesn’t take a big disaster to dirty our water. A few days ago, in Atlanta, they had …

7 Survival Lessons from Deep Survival: Who Lives, Who Dies and Why

“Survival is the celebration of choosing life over death. We know we’re going to die. We all die. But survival is saying: perhaps not today. In that sense, survivors don’t defeat death, they come to terms with it.” Why do some people survive and others perish after experiencing the same set of circumstances? Why do some people walk out of a jungle after a plane crash and others sit and die? Author Laurence Gonzales digs deep into these questions and …

Last-Chance Apocalypse Shopping: O’Reilly Auto Parts

O’Reilly Auto Parts isn’t exactly the store of my dreams, although my husband could spend hours just browsing. However, it may be one of the most useful places to head to when faced with the apocalypse, and fortunately, a lot of folks don’t realize it. It’s the obvious place to pop by the local car parts place for new wiper blades or an oil filter here and there, but those who work on their own vehicles a lot can vouch …

How I Organize My Emergency Supplies

I wish you could have seen my Survival Closet before my intrepid daughter reorganized it a few months ago. When we moved into this house back in 2014, whenever we unpacked something related to prepping, I said, “Go put it in the Survival Closet,” and that’s what everyone did without any regard to organization.

Living the RV Life as a Prepper: The Pros and Cons

When preppers plan for bugging out if or when the S hits the fan, some talk of using an RV. It sounds like the perfect solution and in some ways, it is. I would rather have an RV as a bug-out or emergency shelter than nothing. In the movie World War Z, hordes of zombies stream through the city streets, bringing down one victim after another. The character played by Brad Pitt sees an abandoned RV and rushes his family …
