I Hate Trail Mix – I can’t be the only one!

I Hate Trail Mix – I can’t be the only one!

I have bought so much trail mix over the years, knowing that it’s a good source of a quick bite to eat while hiking or camping or for my BOB. It’s been shoved down my throat by so many people that “TRAIL MIX IS SO GOOD FOR YOU. YOU MUST EAT IT. OMG SO GOOD. THE BEST THING EVAR.” Lots of people also say it’s a great source of energy, but did you know that ANY food is a great…

Do you feel too comfortable in your prepping/survival skills?

Do you feel too comfortable in your prepping/survival skills?

I was watching an episode of Dual Survival and Cody made a good point. He talked about how he may have all the skills on how to make a fire, but just because he has those skills, he shouldn’t rest on his laurels. Sometimes, even when he does everything right to make a fire, it just doesn’t work and that’s how it goes. You keep trying to figure out how to make that fire work. All too often I hear…

Has Social Media Ruined Hunting?

Has Social Media Ruined Hunting?

Let me preface this by saying that I am thrilled when I see ANYONE get a successful hunt. I’m also thrilled to just see people out hunting, regardless if they are successful or not. Contrary to popular belief, the hunting community is pretty small. According to a report taken in 2011 by The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service,13.7 million people, 6% of the U.S. population 16 years old and older, went hunting. That’s an extremely small percentage, especially considering there…

11 Tips for Camping with a Newborn

11 Tips for Camping with a Newborn

We recently took our 2 and a half month old daughter camping for the first time. We were so excited and while many people said it was too early and she was too young, we are not the type of people to think that our daughter is too young to do anything. She may only be 2 and a half months old (at the time of writing this), but she’s already been skeet shooting, shooting at the range, dove hunting,…

How To Survive Anything by Tim MacWelch and Outdoor Life [Book Review]

How To Survive Anything by Tim MacWelch and Outdoor Life [Book Review]

There are a ton of survival books out there that boast ‘how to survive anything’, but very rarely do they mention anything outside of the zombie apocalypse. This book, however, talks about realistic situations from hurricanes to how to to deal with an armed madman and all the way to social collapse. I feel like this book really does cover every conceivable situation. What I like most about this book is how straight to the point it is. It tells…

The point of being prepared is to be able to acquire not only the skills but the proper equipment as well in order to make sure that you’ll be able to survive. Building fires can be fun!

The Survival Summit – Survival Land Navigation DVD Review

The Survival Summit – Survival Land Navigation DVD Review

This is a review of the DVD by The Survival Summit called “Survival Land Navigation“. I love The Survival Summit. They are personable, knowledgable and crank out amazing informative survival related DVDs. I’ve already done a review of their Escape and Evasion DVD, you can check it out on my YouTube channel.
