I'm all about living sustainably, and as we welcomed our second kid into our family we were struck with the same question that most parents have asked themselves over the years. Should we be using cloth diapers? Or disposable ones? There's good arguments for both sides. But essentially it comes down to sustainability v. convenience. Now we're on our homestead, we try to reduce our waste as much as possible. There's no a garbage collector dropping by twice a week to get rid of our trash. We've got to bag it up and drop it off in bulk. For us,...

When a crisis hits, things are going to head south quick. In a matter of days your friendly neighbors are now competing with you for the scarce resources in your local area, and once their family's start to starve there's no telling what they will do.

When it comes to survival, there's only one rule to live by. Whatever can go wrong, will go wrong. There's a remarkable difference from what someone is posting on Facebook or in a forum, to what will actually happen when the SHTF. That's why the military trains for a variety of different scenarios. They develop experience, and the ability to think on their feet to overcome whatever problem faces them. Now this is great practice, but before you get there you need to focus on understanding. Once you know the types of events or actions that could unravel your survival...

There’s no point in denying it, as we get older we face more and more hardships with our health. But that doesn’t mean we need to let a chronic illness hold us back from being prepared. My grandfather was a carpenter, and we’d often find him tinkering around in his woodshop, despite his arthritis and problems with moving one side of his face - he suffered a stroke a couple of decades earlier that wreaked havoc on his body. But in spite of this, I’m in awe of how mobile he remained right up to the end, and while he’s...
