Finding Water for Survival

Water is something we all need to survive. The human body can survive only about three days without consuming clean, pathogen-free water; less than that if it’s extremely hot outside. Yet water can be one of the most difficult resources to find, especially in certain environments.

Bunkers for Survival: Pros and Cons

One big issue for people who are preparing for disaster is determining where they are going to ride out the disaster and the aftermath. For most people, this would be their home. We can’t all afford a fancy survival retreat somewhere in the woods.

Build a Cheap Survival Retreat

One of the biggest issues that comes with an emergency, is having a place to go. Not many of us can afford to purchase a cabin in the woods, as much as we want to. That leaves us with no place to go as a survival retreat. One idea is to purchase some property with a shelter already on it.

Keeping Your Food Cold Without Electricity

Refrigeration is a very important use of electricity in homes. Everyone owns a fridge, and everyone uses them. This convenient device gives us a way to preserve almost any type of food, short-term and long-term. But if there’s no electricity, a refrigerator can’t do much for us. We’d have to use our ancestor’s methods from generations ago.

The Importance of a Perimeter Defense

To say the least, home defense is difficult. The main issue is that the intruder always has the initiative, meaning that they get to choose where, when, and how.
