Imagine waking up one day with no electricity, no internet and no coffee. How would you live? When the brown stuff hits the fan these would be the least of your worries. You might even be one of the lucky ones. There are far worse ways to go and we will look at the worst doomsday scenarios, to see what chances of survival we have.
You may not always carry actual weapons to defend yourself. Maybe the law is against you or maybe you are in a country in which firearms are illegal. Regardless the reason, you sometimes have to use brute force to defend yourself. If you know which the best body targets to exploit are, you might live to tell the story on how it all went down.
After the fourth consecutive year of drought, the water reservoirs of California began to dry up. This lead to a serious number of water restrictions that Americans have to deal with. Unfortunately, it seems it is not only a short term crisis…it’s the beginning of something bigger.
Many people die in a flash flood because they make bad decisions, either by panicking or due to lack of knowledge. You may not know this but flooding is the most commonly occurring natural disaster you can experience. When a flood occurs you have to be prepared to act quickly and get your loved ones to safety.
The ability to make and maintain a fire is a significant psychological factor that will push you to go further and survive. You won’t give up if you manage to build a shelter and make a fire, to make a temporary “home.” Making a fire can be simple, but making the right type of fire and knowing how to use it is something entirely different.
In any survival scenario you will need food and water in order to survive. When food is scarce you have to struggle and avoid starving, case in which you will do anything to get rid of hunger. The environment will provide you with a good source of food that might not sound so appealing at first, edible insects. Even if it sounds gross, relying on edible insects in order to survive is a tactic that turned out to be very efficient for many people.
You could be stranded in the wild with no modern forms of communication. Or the phone lines and even the power grid could be down and you are lost in the middle of nowhere. If your survival skills are still rough you need to know how to make signals to get people’s attention. If nobody knows where you are, it will be impossible for the rescue party to find you.
If you are stranded in the wild or in an environment that lacks water you have to make do with what you’ve got in order to survive.

In developing countries people have to struggle every day due to lack of clean drinking water.

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…
The most astonishing fact about civil unrest is that it is happening more and more these days. With the media presenting only one side of the story, usually the wrong one, the one that increases audience; it seems that civil unrest will become a “normal” scenario in our daily lives. Politicians are making a mess of this country, and police officers abuse their power and people become more and more frustrated and nervous. The conditions for civil unrest are met every day and at some point, it will involve us.
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.
