Among the 35 cars that tumbled off the track that evening were 2 containing anhydrous ammonia.

Prepper Video of the Week 11/20/17 – Kevlar An Alternative to Paracord?

Prepper Product of The Week 11/17/17 – Jetboil

I only recently got a Jetboil but it has forever changed our lives. It boils water within just a few minutes, cutting our cooking time in half and it really doesn’t use anymore fuel than regular cooking/boiling does. Plus everything you need stacks neatly inside (even the fuel, if you get the smallest size). There are many different types of Jetboil’s, we like the personal cooking system because it has a heat indicator on the outside. They’re all great, it’ll…

It can be easy to lose your bearings without a compass. Yet, there are ways of findings North, East, South, and West even without a compass. One method is using an Analog Watch.
