Do you know where the nearest Nuclear Power Reactors are to you?

This post isn’t to scare you, it’s to simply inform you of a potential danger in case of a wide spread emergency or disaster or even a small leak. Nuclear power plants generate a lot of power all across the world. However, they can also be quite dangerous if people are no longer around or able to maintain them or something goes wrong in which there is a leak.

Top 5 Survival/Prepper Fire Starters & Fire Starting Tips

Top 5 Survival/Prepper Fire Starters & Fire Starting Tips

Instafire – I don’t watch much TV but apparently the inventors of this product were on Shark Tank! Instafire is truly awesome. It lights easily and you only need a little bit to get a good fire started. It says it will only start 4 fires, but I can start a lot more fires with the stuff inside of there. The one downside to it is that it doesn’t have a zipper! So once it’s opened, it’s open and it’ll…

5 Types of Preparedness Lists To Stay Organized

I’m all about lists. I love making lists because it helps me focus on what I need to do.

This is especially true when it comes to preparedness. Here are a few lists that I make for my preps: Bug Out Bag – It’s really handy…

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…

Bridgford Ready To Eat French Toast Review [Prepper Food Storage]

Bridgford Ready To Eat French Toast Review [Prepper Food Storage]

When it comes to my bugging in food supply, I don’t like to store a lot of freeze dried foods. I’d prefer to get foods that still have a long shelf life, but that are foods that I would normally eat everyday. Like canned foods, rice, beans, etc. So when it comes to breakfast food items, it’s pretty difficult to find a good selection of ‘normal’ food that I can store for my bugging in food supply. I’ve done a…

What I Hope to Teach my Daughter about Being Prepared

For those that don’t know, I am due to give birth to a girl in mid-July of 2016. This is our first child. I have many aspirations for my daughter. I don’t want to be unrealistic and push her into things that she doesn’t want to do because I know she’ll have her own interests and own personality and I want to be able to nurture those interests and personality to the best of our ability. However, I feel there…

What I Learned from 365 Days of Prepping

Back in 2015, I recorded a video a day called ‘365 Survival‘ where I tired to do some sort of survival/prepper related activity. I completed all 365 days. It was intense. It’s been about 5 months since I finished the series and I’m ready to talk about what I learned! In the beginning of the series, I sort of had a vague idea of what I wanted to do. I wanted to do something prepper/survival related on a daily basis,…

How to Get Your Spouse Interested in Prepping

How to Get Your Spouse Interested in Prepping

  Let’s be clear from the get-go, I’m way more into prepping than my husband. My husband likes prepping and camping and hiking and all that jazz, but in the end, he lets me take the reins and do whatever I want, prepping-wise, for the household. He knows I’m tuned in deep into the prepper world and will do what’s best for the family. He gets involved on occasion and offers his advice for many things and we always talk…
