If you are looking to supercharge your immune system against today’s ever-evasive diseases, melt away that excess weight, or stimulate the brain while actively building barriers against stroke and heart attack risk, then look no further than…your own backyard or patio or garden plot (as you can grow thse healing vegetables literally anywhere).
It’s about damn time that we begin to realize all that we’ve put out of whack in this great system we are part of. Using old hacks like planting by the signs in this modern world seems a little odd, but is it really? Our ancestors did it with great success and they left us the knowledge to use their techniques for a truly self-sufficient life.
When it comes to hitting trails, climbing crags, walking at the local YMCA, or just simply being on your feet for any amount of time, your footwear of choice is immensely important. One of the chief mistakes a new hiker makes when hitting the trails is said hikers choice in footwear. Let’s look at how to pick the best boots for your outdoor adventure.
Not very long ago (hardly a handful or two of years back) our communicational availability was a quarter (or less) of what it now is. If you could not reach John Joe on his kitchen phone and he didn’t come to the door when you knocked, well, you just figured he wasn’t home. Boy how times have really changed and nowdays it seems that communication is easier than ever.
Vehicle preparedness is something we all have to consider. It doesn’t matter if you’re a prepper or an average Joe, accidents happen all the time. As you can imagine, vehicle preparedness is more than having a bug out bag or get home bag in the back of your truck. Today we will discuss the essentials of vehicle preparedness, something we should all do.
Nowadays, you can find a variety of innovatively designed water bottles which include filters and some other features which makes them ideal for preppers but not only them. If you are looking for water bottles that have a filter incorporated, LifeStraw Go may be the right option for you. I have two LifeStraw Go bottles, and I promised my readers I would do a review, once I get a little time.
With springtime waiting just around the corner, preparation for wet weather is in check. It is also highly important to have the skillset of weatherproofing if SHTF anytime soon (and yet again, who are we kidding…). Learning a thing or two about waterproofing gear will surely come in handy.
As promised a while ago, I will continue to review some of the prepping gear I own. Today, the Gerber Bear Grylls survival hatchet is in the spotlight. It is one of the best compact survival hatchets available on the market and it is considered a lifesaving aid in building a shelter and a campfire.
Getting back to nature is one of the last remaining pleasures we as Americans can all agree on. The great outdoors, however, is not a place to be taken lightly. Every year campers tragically die in situations that could’ve been easily avoided. Thankfully this is rare. What’s more common is that every year countless campers endure nights of terrible sleep thanks to poor preparation.
Nowadays, a generator is more than a convenience, and these items are no longer used sporadically like in the past. In fact, they fly off the shelves of general stores every time the media channels broadcast the “BAD forecast for this week’s weather” message. While some people know how to use a generator, the vast majority has no idea what protocols to follow and which are the generator safety rules they should implement for their household.
For us, rural and urban dwellers, the thought of living in a world without electrical power is a pretty scary one. Few people know what to do when there is no electricity and for them, it’s like a trip back in time, when things were much simpler. However, for the rest of us, electricity is a wonderful invention and we would be lost without it. Even so, nearly every task done with electricity has a manual counterpart.
During this time of year, a lot of people are affected by hypothermia. Many of them have no idea what hypothermia really is or what its symptoms are. When people feel cold they power through as they think it’s normal and soon enough things get worse, especially if they drink the wrong beverages.
Traveling through the wilderness requires for you to learn how to use all your senses. The more you learn to merge your senses, the more you will be able to enjoy the environment, but also make it safer when navigating through. The following natural navigation methods should be known by anyone who plans on spending a great deal of time in nature.
