There's far too many of us living in urban centers. It was 80.7% in the U.S. according to the 2010 census, and you imagine how this figure has been steadily climbing higher as the years have passed. Now think about this for a second. When the SHTF, the vast majority of us are going to be facing the disaster that comes from an urban location, but this seems to go against much of the 'prepper-guidelines' out there that preach living completely off the grid in a self-sustaining homestead. Just because you live in a city it doesn't spell your death...

Getting a stomach bug is never fun. Just last week I had a bad case of food poisoning myself, which ended up with me in hospital, on a drip, as they loaded me up with a ton of antibiotics, fluids, and other medicine to get me back on my feet. That's what's inspired the post today, as once the SHTF the hospitals aren't going to be there anymore, and that's not going to be fun.

Or maybe it's a couple of months into a disaster and you're rapidly burning through the candles...

If you're like most Americans however, you've probably got no choice but to live in a relatively urban environment, for work, family or convenience. Surviving once a disaster strikes is possible, but there's a few key mistakes to avoid if you want to up your chances of long-term success. Never, ever brag about your preps It feels good to brag right? Perhaps you've just got your new solar...

The weather here sucked last weekend. Non-stop rain, so I hunkered down with a guilty pleasure I've been putting off for a while, the first season of Naked and Afraid XL. Despite being built around a series of drama (much like most reality shows), one contestant in particular stuck with me. Danielle. She refused to eat any meat for the entire duration of their ordeal, surviving basically off dried fruit and cashews for 40 days. Personally, I think this is a rather awesome feat, as my personal idea of survival involves hunting and a whole ton of red meat to...
