Many people dream about having a vacation home somewhere nice just to get away from the rush of the modern world. If you are part of the preparedness and survival communities, you might as well have plans to have a second home. The difference is that we want something that protects us from the threats of today’s world, a bug out location or even better, an emergency bunker. If an emergency bunker is on your to-do list, following are the things you need to consider.
Now is the time! This is, for all concerned citizens, the final call to arms. No more wishing and hoping for things to change. It is time to take matters into our own hands and make things change. You and I are victims of a great deception that has taken place right under our noses and we are the recipients of the intolerable theft of our inherent liberty.
I’m hesitant to write what I perceive to be the truth of what is waiting in the wings for Americans, but feel compelled to do so in order to convince as many people as I can to prepare for the inevitable.
A massive power outage is a true nightmare and it takes weeks or months to wake up from. The earth has just been hit with a massive geomagnetic solar storm similar to the one from the Carrington Event of 1859. There are no lights, no Internet, no TV, no radio, nothing… Your closest source of light is your cell phone, but its battery will soon die…what then? How will you survive this?
I’m grieved to report the death of the United States of America as I learned of her and loved her, has occurred. This may be the closest thing to an official obituary you may see.
While the inhabitants slept an evil tyranny crept in and took over our once blessed and great nation. Evil men that prospered and built great wealth on the backs of Americans and also the backs of other nations in the past having passed their evil torch to future family members.
In April 2015 we counted 200 years since the explosion of the Tambora volcano, the most powerful volcanic eruption in recorded history. It isn’t something you’re going to find easily in our media, but just like many volcanologists out there, you need to wonder: “will we face a similar volcanic eruption in our lifetime?” Unfortunately the news are not good and it seems that nobody wants to discuss about what lies beneath the ground…
Hardcore survivalists and preppers cherish the lone-wolf scenario. It goes something like this: The world is crumbling and cities collapse into mayhem. We,the preppers are well equipped for the end of the world. We are the last chance of humanity since we can withstand anything faith throws at us. Our society is no longer built on everyday trust and neighborly reliance, but do you want to be alone in the end?
It’s really happening. The “brown stuff” hit the fan and there’s terror everywhere. To top it all off, you’re not even at home so you need to think and act fast about whether or not it’s a good idea to get there and how to do it.
If you live off-the-grid, the loss of power might not seem catastrophic to you. However, for the rest of the people out there, having no electricity will drastically lower their life’s quality or even worse. Regardless of one’s condition, we have to consider that the majority of our needs require power and we are lost without it. You should at least be able to hoard the right foods to increase your chances of survival when the world plunges into darkness.
In the world we live today there are as many man-made disasters as natural ones and you need to learn to survive both. If your pantry is full, your health and safety should be a first priority when a disaster strikes. Knowing what to do and having the correct equipment to treat a medical problem should be a must for every prepper since even the smallest infection can bring you down, if left untreated.
The idea behind a 72 hour bug-out bag is that it will provide you with the supplies you need to find shelter or safety. It is not a bug out bag that can keep you alive in the wilderness for days; it is just a transition bag. This kit is designed to keep you safe and alive while you are moving towards a shelter or to your bug out location. The following items should be considered for every 72 hour bug-out bag.
Knowledge is power and this power will bring you up when everything around you crumbles. We stockpile food and water, we hoard the things we might need during a disaster, and we equip our armory so that we could fend off a small army. What are you doing about accumulating knowledge? You’ve started learning about first aid, about gardening, about wood crafting and other skills you might need, but one cannot learn everything. This is why you need to build your own SHTF library.
An urban prepper has to deal with much more problems when it comes to preparedness and survival, compared to their fellow preppers, living in small communities.

The strategies presented in this article are designed for the preppers living in large cities. They are intended to give them an upper hand and increase their chances of survival.
