About 10 years ago, the kids left some CHEAP margarine (the wife bought to make cookies with) on the counter when they made toast. I come home two hours later and it has hardly softened. After trying real butter and not having a lot of fun trying to spread it on toast (right out of the frig) we settled on Land O Lakes butter with canola oil. [...]

Did anyone else watch the Ascension MiniSeries? It started out with a novel idea, ran a few hours, began to wobble, and ended in a massive train wreck. It is almost as if the writer ran out of ideas after the 4th hour. What could have been an interesting movie was a monumental disaster. There were major technical errors that were unforgivable. Did anyone else notice those errors? [...]

A federal judge for the Western District of Pennsylvania used a deportation decision to probe the constitutionality – or lack thereof – of President Obama's executive order on amnesty, declaring it “unconstitutional.” How that ruling might impact other cases or the acceptability of Obama's psuedo-law is unclear, however. While Texas and other states have already initiated lawsuits challenging the order, this is the first case to test how Obama's unilateral immigration action would impact deportations and sentencing for illegal aliens unlawfully present in the United States. Judge Arthur J. Schwab wrote an opinion weighing whether Obama's recent executive order is constitutional, and whether [...]

It's a good fail safe in case you can't find or catch something to eat when you're out in the wilderness. Most people carry some sort of dehydrated food.

There's nothing like a good campfire meal when you're “roughing it”. It's a great way to enjoy the great outdoors, but there may come a time when campfire cooking for preppers takes on a whole new meaning. After TEOTWAWKI, building a campfire will get deadly serious as it is a necessary survival skill that you must learn. Fire is critical to your shelter arrangement, purifying water and cooking. With respect to campfire cooking, there are two factors to consider: Portability and Concealment. If you are bugging out, a campfire will draw unnecessary attention to you and the members of [...]

It is time to present another entry in the Backdoor Survival Book Festival 7 and oh my gosh, I have been wanting to share this book with you since I first came across a pre-release excerpt last summer! Let me say this: do no be put off by the title as Lauren Wilson, the author of The Art of Eating through the Zombie Apocalypse, answers the Book Festival questions and awards one lucky reader with a copy of her book. But first, let me tell you a little bit about this nifty book. First of all, the subtitle is “A Cookbook & [...]

Apples just seem to overflow here at our homestead. And thankfully so! They are an excellent staple to have on the pantry shelf, easy to can & put up and best of all…delicious! If /when the SHTF, comfort foods will be soooo appreciated, even if the “S” in question is just a big Snowstorm! Each year, we can huge quantities of applesauce, make apple butter for the grandparents, and dehydrate apple chips, but far and away our favorite way to preserve all the beautiful apples we get in the Fall is Apple Pie Filling! No matter how much we make, there [...]

Russians have seen the writing on the wall and they know that they're economy and currency are in serious trouble. Though the Russian central bank has pledged to protect and stabilize the Ruble, which has collapsed by nearly 50% versus the dollar in the last several months, people aren't taking any chances. It's a scenario we've seen repeated throughout history when a nation's currency was threatened with destruction and it's one we may soon witness in America should confidence in the dollar as the world's reserve currency ever be lost. This is what a currency collapse looks like: “It is a real panic,” [...]

Do you love coffee or know someone who does? ‘Tis the season for the fanciest possible version of everything, and your hot beverage is no exception. Places like Starbucks have taken flavored coffees to whole new level. At my local grocery store, there's an entire refrigerated unit dedicated to decadent flavored creamers. Unfortunately, those creamers are rife with chemicals, including artificial flavors and neurotoxins like aspartame and sucralose. You certainly aren't giving someone a “treat” by putting that stuff in their coffee. Here's the list of ingredients for Coffeemate's Hazelnut Creamer: WATER, SUGAR, PARTIALLY HYDROGENATED SOYBEAN AND/OR COTTONSEED OIL, AND [...]

by Todd Walker Which word in the title lured you to this article? That's a rhetorical question really. Whatever the reason, thanks for reading! We're not analyzing all the different labels related to preparedness. That's a waste of time. If you believe your label (bushcraft, prepper, homesteader, survivalist, etc.) is superior to all others, stop reading now. Other venues are available which encourage you to crawl onto a pedestal of superiority. Tess Pennington, author of The Prepper's Blueprint, addresses the preparedness community's cubical mindset in the intro of her book: “Once again, we have compartmentalized ourselves.

Having a survival mindset means you are always ready to take on new challenges, right? Although I fully believe that new challenges are a good thing, it is sometimes downright frustrating to recognize that prep as we do, we are never really ready. Part of the disconnect from being totally prepared is having the knowledge that we will never be able to prepare for everything. As recently as four years ago, we were preparing for the end of the world as we know it and a global economic collapse. And now? The flavor of the month is [...]

Maintaining your core body temperature is critical in a survival situation. Hypothermia can set in even at relatively mild temperatures. A fact that is often lost on many people is that heat is energy and cold is merely the absence of that energy. Heat is a “thing” where cold isn't. This is an important distinction so you'll better understand the different ways heat is lost and how to prevent it from happening. Different Types of Heat Loss Conduction is the loss of heat through direct contact. Sitting on a cold rock can give you a chill, even if you're otherwise sheltered from [...]

Purslane, also known as pig-weed, is a weed that has to be talked about. This weed grows everywhere you don't want it to grow in the summer. It comes up in the cracks in the side walks and grows as a turf cover in the yard. This plant is a succulent and bloom magenta or yellow flowers. I'm sure we have a fussed about this darn plant growing near the garden or wood pile, but purslane are a super weed to me. A cup of purslane tea a day keeps the doctor away. This little weed is supercharged with Omaga-3 fatty [...]

by James Hubbard, MD, MPH Here in Colorado, we've already had some really cold days and then some sneaky mild ones. Sneaky because I get all comfortable going out with a light jacket one day; the next, the sky is clear, and it looks the same—from the inside. I walk out, and bam, it's biting cold. Or the day is pretty mild and the night is freezing. Winter is upon us, and I have this sneaky feeling it's going to get colder before it gets warmer. So I went back and reviewed my previous posts for winter safety tips (hey, sometimes [...]

Traditionally, when you think of the items in a bug out bag, you think of a flashlight, knife, water filter, fire starter, paracord, first aid kit, and a whole list of other items that before long, fill your pack with gear that will help you survive should you have to flee the safety and comfort of your home. When it comes to food items, the items carried in a bug out bag (also called a BOB or GO bag), are often limited by weight. MREs and freeze-dried meal pouches are popular, as are protein bars and jerky. All that [...]

It's happening on a global scale. It's taking place in relationships, in occupation, in health, in spirituality and almost everything. Everything is moving towards sustainability because we have been in a position that is really unsustainable for a long time now. All the constructions that are busting down the world right now, the financial arrangements, the way money plays, and the way we care for the environment, and so on, all these structures that in front of our eyes are because they were never sustainable to begin with. So, what we need to do now is shift towards sustainable [...]
