Survival Library Review – Pole Shift Survival Information

Pole Shift Survival Information – Survival Library Review This review is about a very interesting web-site that one internet denizen described as a “survival library on crack”.  We here at Prepography have to agree. Pole Shift Survival Information bills itself as being for “for those who wish to improve their chances for survival after the coming pending pole shift. ”  Don’t let that description fool you though.  The site is much more than that.  This site presents the online reader with a survival library that is a treasure trove of useful information.  Even if you aren’t worried about the potential for a pole shift the information presented would come in handy for any survival or TEOTWAWKI situation. Pole Shift Survival Information is a bare bones site with over 4,000 files available.  The content list covers a multitude of subjects from A to Z.  Actually, the last subject currently listed is  “Worms”, so that would be A-W.  Each topic links to a page listing PDFs on that subject.  The PDFs range from practical “How-To’s” to more in-depth articles with subjects including rebuilding infrastructure, family planning and more.  The PDFs are mostly scans from a variety of sources including government and educational handouts as well as trade magazines and self sufficiency/homestead magazines like Back Woods Home and Mother Earth News.  The PDFs are also downloadable, so the reader could transfer them to an off-line source for future reference.  This is a fantastic survival library for the Prepper or self-sufficiency minded to use. I highly recommends visiting the site, as it  hasn’t been updated since Jul 2013. This site could sit unchanged for years to come, or it could disappear tomorrow.  Use it while you can FacebookPinterestGoogleRedditTwitterTumblrEmailPrintPocketMoreLinkedInLike this:Like...

Full Spectrum Preparedness and the 5 C’s of Survival

“Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius — and a lot of courage — to move in the opposite direction.” – Albert Einstein In the quest for preparedness, we constantly face the challenge that Albert Einstein discusses above. How do we approach the exceedingly complex topic of preparedness and survival in the way that makes it as simple as possible. We’re not geniuses here at Prepography by any stretch of the imagination but we do think that we have done a pretty good job creating and expanding the concept of Full Spectrum Preparedness (FSP). We’ve tried to develop a comprehensive approach to preparedness in as small a form as possible. Additionally, FSP is a scalable approach that can be used equally well whether you’re building a Bug Out Bag (BOB) or a survival retreat. Just because we’re partial to the concept of FSP does not mean that other approaches are not valid or worth considering. This is especially true when making sure FSP is as simple as possible, while remaining comprehensive. Recently, I have been looking at a more simple preparedness model and how it relates to Every Day Carry (EDC) items, as well as FSP. This concept is called “The 5 C’s of Survival” 10 Fundamentals of Full Spectrum Preparedness Before going any further, let’s do a quick review of the 10 Fundamentals of Full Spectrum Preparedness Security Preparedness: Items, skills and knowledge necessary to keep your family and provisions safe. Shelter & Clothing Preparedness: Items, skills and knowledge necessary to protect you and your possesions from the elements. Health (Personal), Fitness and Medicine Preparedness: Everything needed to keep you and your family healthy. Transportation Preparedness: Items, skills and knowledge necessary to support your family’s transportation needs. Family & Community Support: Building family and community networks and ties focused...

Psychology of Survival and Spiritual Considerations

Andrew’s Note:  Today’s survival lesson is an extract from Appendix A of FM 21-76-1, the U.S. Army manual on Survival, Evasion & Recovery June 1999, Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited.  This appendix provides information on the psychology of survival and includes spiritual considerations.  While the manual was written for military situations there are many takeaways for the preparedness minded as well.  I find the section on spiritual considerations especially helpful.  Your experiences may not reflect mine, but long before I became a man of faith I noticed how strong and resilient those I knew who had a strong faith were.  It’s also interesting to note that with the current movement afoot to remove God from the ranks of the military…including calls to appoint atheist chaplains for our servicemembers…this is from a military field manual. Psychology of Survival Preparation Know your capabilities and limitations. Keep a positive attitude. Develop a realistic plan. Anticipate fears.

Identifying signals of distress created by stressors (indecision, withdrawal, forgetfulness, carelessness, and propensity to make mistakes). Strengthen your will to survive with— The Code of Conduct.

Remember scripture, verses, or hymns; repeat them to yourself and to your God. Worship without aid of written scripture, clergy, or others. Forgive— Yourself for what you have done or said that was wrong. Those who have failed you. Praise God and give thanks because— God is bigger than your circumstances.
