It’s not surprising that we survivalists are an individualistic bunch, and while being part of a larger community does have its benefits, there’s every chance you’re going to be all alone when the SHTF. Whether that’s from circumstances or your own choice, just because you live alone it doesn’t mean you need to become an easy target. Far from it. But living alone does require you to think differently when it comes to defending what’s yours, and you need to put strategies in place that support your decision to live alone.

There’s no question 2020 has been a shocker of a year, and with the way we’re still trending I’ve not got my hopes up for a recovery anytime soon.

Last weekend a close friend of mine had their house burgled. It's a horrible thought. A stranger, in your home, rummaging through your most personal items. Luckily, they weren't home at the time, and they didn't lose a lot.

If the situation was different. Today, I want to do another post on home security. We've touched on ways that you could better fortify your home against an intruder,...

Let's face it. Fighting is bad, and when you finally get home, battered and bruised, it's clear there is no real "winner." But when it comes to survival, it's important you're able to hold your own in a fight. Now of course, I sincerely hope that you never need to use these skills in a real-life situation, but having the ability to defend yourself is a great survival skill to learn. But that's just it. Defending yourself also means staying alive. But it's not always a fair fight. Perhaps your opponent has a weapon, outweighs you, or is just more...
