Hand and Arm Signals – The Army Way

Being able to communicate silently in the field using Visual Signal is good skill survival skill whether you’re a Soldier or a Prepper.  I was lucky to learn about hand and arm signals, a subset of Visual Signals (also includes light signals, flags, panel systems and the like) at the Fort Benning...

Wood Stove Checklist

Let’s admit it…as Preppers we love wood heat.  Wood is the perfect renewable resource as a heating fuel because you can harvest it with the most primitive of tools and nature supplies a steady supply if we don’t overharvest.  But like most simple solutions it’s simple...

How To Make Moonshine Infographic

Andrew’s Note:  How To Make Moonshine is a reprint of an infographic we first ran a little over a year ago.  For some inexplicable reason I’ve received a bunch of e-mails lately asking about home distillation and specifically about avoiding methane poisoning and how to legally distill.  I’m no...

Post Apocalyptic Hygiene Supplies

As we discussed in our recent article, Post Apocalyptic Self Care hygiene is important to health and never more important than during times of great stress, after a disaster or while living in an austere environment.  If you don’t take actions now to stockpile necessary post apocalyptic hygiene...

The Ruger 10-22 has been around since 1964 but I didn’t buy my first one until about 1980 when I talked my Mrs. Jackson into buying one for her favorite under-age son.  She still gives me a hard time about it periodically as the first thing I did was throw on a black nylon stock with a pistol grip and...

Poor Is A Choice – 25 Ways To Choose A Rich Life

I’ve written previously about The Top 10 Symptoms of Poor Man’s Disease and about how I’ve been unemployed, lived check-to-check and once lived in such a rough neighborhood I counted prostitutes on my way home from work each night…but I never chose to be poor and I do believe that...

Aquaponics Infographic

Last summer I ran my own aquaponics system for the first time.  I found that the vegetables within the system grew three times faster than the vegetables from the same seed packs grown outside the system as a control group.  While I didn’t put my system into operation this year because of our move...

10 Ways Your Ghillie Suit Will Get You Killed

Recently I talked with a fellow Prepper who was positively giddy over the purchase of his new ghillie suit.  I held my tongue, for once, but all I could think of was the “10 Ways Your Ghillie Suit Will Get You Killed” if you try to play sniper. Now, there’s no doubt that in the right hands...
