What is a Bug Out Bag and Why Do You Need One? If we’ve learnt anything over the past eighteen months, it’s that a lot of people are ill prepared for when SHTF. During times of strife and confusion people will flock to department stores to stock up on everything and those unlucky enough to arrive late won’t be sitting comfortably in the weeks or months ahead. It’s not something to blame people for though-many of us simply don’t give disaster situations much thought until they’re here. But we should. The coronavirus pandemic is one such situation that’s proven how...

To the people who know me in real life, they won’t hesitate to tell you that I’m a die-hard survivalist.

There’s your choice of 24/7 supermarkets, for the most part it’s generally safe, and the crowd of people are a welcome society, one that most of us enjoy being a part of. But as soon as a crisis hits, these norms and standards go out the window. Because big cities are unsustainable. You’ve got too many people crushed into one area, which puts a real strain on the underlying infrastructure. We...
