Modern technology provides all the comforts one would need to have a happy and healthy life. Still, this technology we all depend on it’s not invincible, and preppers imbued with self-sufficient spirits know better than to forsake our pioneer forefathers’ lessons learned through peril and misfortune.
A lot of preppers are worrying about the day when medical care will no longer be available. They learn about first-aid, they stockpile various medications and prepare as best as possible when that dreaded day comes. A lot of them are asking about expired medications. Should they still use them past their expiration date, or should they throw them in the trash? Today we will try to find an answer to this critical question.
The average prepper spends a lot of time on the road, they have to get to and from work, they have various shopping trips, or they vacation into the wilderness. If you are a survivalist and your main concern are bad roads, changing weather, and perhaps rioting that brings all traffic to a stop, having a proper vehicle medical kit can help you save lives.
I have been a reader of Prepper’s Will for over two years now, and not only do I look forward to every new article, but I keep all my favorite articles printed as well. I have been able to apply many of the bits of information I have picked up from PW to my everyday life.
We have all been in a situation when our power was off for a short time. But what would we have done if it did not come back on? How long could you get along without power? Not very long if you’re like most folks, but it is not that bad if you know what to do and make some preparations.
Books, television, and movies have capitalized on the public’s lack of knowledge concerning nuclear power plants to produce a myriad of scenarios involving terrorist attacks on such plants.
We’ve been talking about global warming for the past 50 years, and we still haven’t managed to take action against this threat that may very well lead to human extinction. Global warming is here, and we can no longer ignore its worldwide effects.
Landslides have always posed a hazard to humans and property. Appropriately, the technical term for landslides and related phenomena is “mass wasting:’ To a large degree the cause of mass wasting is gravity, the attraction of smaller particles to a larger, denser, lower mass. Landslides are possible when the particles that make up the land lose the cohesiveness that has held them in place.
An avalanche is hardly an uncommon phenomenon, literally thousands occur every winter and spring in mountainous terrain, where the terrifying rumble of these flash floods of snow are common sounds to woodsmen and cross-country skiers.
Chemical weapons and chemical warfare, these almost forgotten threats. There are some good news and bad news about them. The bad news is that chemical weapons are alive and well today. They’ve been around in the 21st century, dating back to WWI when a number of countries started using them.
As surely as winter follows summer, you will read headlines announcing the inevitable deaths resulting from blizzards. Many of the reported fatalities will concern motorists who become stuck in snowdrifts.
Ambushes are of special concern to preppers and survivalists because, in a crisis, there may be looting bands who prey on others in order to sustain themselves. If worst comes to worst, and a total break-down of law and order occurs, criminal elements will have an almost free hand to victimize others. Surviving an ambush will certainly not be an easy task, but these strategies should give you an idea on how to prepare and what to expect.
What would you do if you found yourself lost in strange surroundings far from people and civilization, your food and water supply low or non-existent? Coping with an unfamiliar environment it’s impossible for some while others will try to figure things out as best as they can. However, coming back alive from a journey into the unknown requires some basic survival knowledge and a little bit of luck.
