I keep telling people to save money and follow holiday sales since it’s the best time of the year to buy the stuff you need. Since buying gear for our prepping plans is not cheap, we should make smart choices. Black Friday deals are everywhere and you can buy the supplies you need or gear for a few dollars. Here are my recommendations to buy some useful items for your prepper friends.
Suffering an injury is never fun. Not only can it be extremely painful depending upon the injury you are suffering from, but it can also leave you sore and unable to perform daily tasks for quite some time. This can really help to make the injury far worse in your own mind.
Tensions between the US and North Korea have reached unprecedented levels after the Pyongyang regime announced it has successfully tested a hydrogen bomb in September. The blast triggered an earthquake of magnitude 6.3 and South Korea urgently reunited the security council to discuss the north threat. A war between the US and North Korea is not a far-fetched scenario seeing how the two leaders are acting.
I love to explore the great outdoors and I try to spend more time in nature. I’ve seen many hikers with feet that have been abused. I can tell you from experience that few people pay attention to their feet when they are uncomfortable. Foot care should become a priority if you plan on bugging out on foot or if you enjoy long hiking trips.
Heat stroke is a very serious, sometimes lethal condition that affects all of us, animals and humans alike. While some animals enjoy specialized defensive mechanism to protect themselves from the effect of sun exposure and heat, it is fair to say that for the rest of us, heat stroke is an equal opportunity offender.
Picking the right sleeping pads is something all preppers should consider with great care. Sleep has a direct relationship with just about every other aspect of your life. While a solid night’s sleep can affect our day-to-day life in some important ways, in a survival situation, it means the difference between life and death.
According to Eastern Kentucky University, disasters are unfortunate events that almost always end with individuals losing their lives. Perhaps the biggest difference between a natural disaster and a man-made is the human intent to cause environmental damage. A man-made disaster can generally be divided into different categories like terrorism, transportation hazards, environmental accidents, and technological hazards.
“Of packing of many bags there is no end.” I think Ecclesiastes said that. His quote may have been a bit different, but the king was getting at the same idea. The bugout bag is an evolution. You must not look at your bugout bag as a stagnant entity. If you do, it will provide you with stagnant results.
Are you suffering from a bed bug infestation? If so then you are in the right place. Bed bugs don’t live on their hosts the way that ticks and fleas do but tend to feed on them only. They prefer feeding on humans as compared to any other animals.
Flooding is one of the major natural disasters, which is characterized by the increase of river, lakes, or sea level and is usually a consequence of heavy rains, snow melting, ice melting, water reservoir collapse, etc. Floods may last from several hours to two-three weeks and may cause countless damage to both buildings and the population.
Reloading ammunition is a beneficial and economic skill for a large number of shooters. It helps them save money, and it provides the reassurance of having available ammunition when shortages are in effect. In a SHTF scenario, reloading ammunition may be the only way to get bullets for your firearms in case you don’t have a large supply on hand.
