It’s a crisp fall morning as you awaken to the smell of pancakes on the grill wafting through the house. You flip on the radio to hear the morning news as you roll out of bed. It’s then you hear that it’s been a busy morning over on the east coast; the U.S. stock market has plummeted by 1,250 points and that trading was suspended. As you sip your coffee, you ponder that announcement; you rationalize its meaning based upon your own sphere of experience, which is a huge mis... Continue Reading →

Most people are not acquainted with the term geo-engineering. The vast majority of American people are oblivious to the existence of weather and climate modification technology and implementation, let alone how far it has progressed over the past 60–70 years. Even when presented with the facts, most people discount such information as... Continue Reading →

We live in a world where civilization, reason and logic are said to be at historic heights, yet so many people today, especially our youth, are making new lows in relevant intelligence and labor under a host of myths and illusions. A few of the myths and misconceptions relate to disaster preparedness and ‘Preppers’.

Over the past few months, I have heard the Red Cross in Southern Oregon providing ‘advice’ to radio listeners on one or more radio stations. In the radio announcement, they are providing preparedness information about the predicted 9+ earthquake that occurs off the Northern California-Oregon coast every 300-350 years, and is expected to hit anytime now. More Here.

The light-emitting diode (LED) has become ubiquitous in the technology that surrounds our lives today. Practically everywhere you look, LEDs are visible; your car, your computer, your microwave oven, your cell phone, etc. Even in household and commercial lighting applications, we see LED technology taking over where the older less efficient fluorescent and filament bulbs use to dominate.

Did you know that if you own a safe with an electronic lock that you might be locked-out of it after an EMP? And that’s not exactly good timing. That’s right folks! Depending on who made the safe, its model, where the safe is located, and the distance away from the EMP source, you may or may not be able to access the goodies that you have tucked away in that fancy electronic safe!
A good friend of mine who is trying to be as prepared as possible called me the other day a... Continue Reading →

This is not your uncle’s camping axe!
I am not an expert with edged weapons, even though I have a trunk-load of them, including the old Buck hunting knife that my Dad gave me when I was a teenager many moons ago. So with that said, I wanted to share my latest prize, which was a Christmas gift from my son-in-law who is a serving USMC Officer who enlisted in the Corps and became a sniper. After his combat tour he was ‘mustang-ed’ i... Continue Reading →

With the start of the new-year, there always seem to be several articles that come out promoting guns as part of a preparedness solution. And it’s an unfortunate fact that firearms have become almost synonymous with Preppers and disaster preparedness. I will explain why that is truly unfortunate…
Sadly, thanks largely to movies and bloggers with little or no ‘real’ long-term survival experience, far too much emphasis is placed on owning battle rifles as a primary part of surviv... Continue Reading →
