Best prepper and survival websites

Best prepper blogsMy list of the prepper and survival websites

This is my list of the best prepper forum  or prepper- and survival websites that I frequent and recommend to others.

It’s not gonna be just a bunch of crap listed in order to get a link exchanged (so don’t ask), so the list is gonna be short for a while. I’ve included a quick description for each prepper blog, forum or resource along with the links. Below that is a sampling of some of the excellent writing you can get from a quality prepper site for most of them, provided through their RSS feed automatically every day if they have one – so if you wanna bookmark  any of my pages, this would be the one.

I may have chosen them because they have the best survivalist articles, prepping supplies, advice for new preppers, or just good information on how to be a prepper such as how to get started with your prepper’s list or great how-to projects.

I’ve left the comments open below so feel free to comment on any sites here or suggest others through my email.

Please don’t use my comments section as a venue for self-promotion. only the best and most useful prepping sites are on this list.

Here is a selection of the most recent posts from my list of the best prepper and survival sites.

The State of Georgia has just signed an unprecedented new law that removes all handgun carrying and possession permissions to allow lawful residents the ability to carry their concealed firearms just about everywhere including schools, churches, government buildings, nightclubs and bars. The National Rifle Association hails it as the “most comprehensive pro-gun reform legislation introduced in recent state history.” Critics have appropriately dubbed it the “Guns Everywhere Bill,” with former Rep. Gabrille Giffords (D-AZ) calling it the “most extreme gun bill in America.” But proponents of the legislation say it’s exactly what residents need to protect themselves from criminals. Georgia Governor Nathan Deal [...]

Ok this is fairly simple, but it always surprises me how many people don’t know this, and also, how many people don’t do it!  Garlic is one of the easiest crops to grow, as long as they don’t sit in soggy, wet ground, they rarely have any problems. Garlic does take a fair while to grow, but this is countered by the fact you can grow a year’s worth of garlic in around a meter square. Also once cropped and dried, garlic will keep for up to ten months. I recommend that you purchase organic garlic bulbs for planting, but it [...]

Sometimes with gardening, especially when growing food, it can seem like everything is against you: the critters eating/ruining your crops, the bugs doing the same, and then of course you have the ever unpredictable weather, which is often too hot, too cold, too wet or to dry! The more tips, tricks and cheats to help your gardening be a success, the better. Nothing beats year on year experience, but some of these 22 gardening cheats are sure to help.  Check them out on the link below. 22 Unbelievably Clever Gardening Cheats (Image from: Homemade Home Ideas) [...]

I love camping, it is especially magical with young children, but camping seems to divide people, some love it, others hate it.  The thing is I think that most of the people who hate camping probably had a bad camping experience which likely stemmed from poor planning/preparation. With the right gear, a bit of location research and some preparation, camping can be an amazing experience. For all the camping haters, I urge you to give camping another go this summer, especially if you have kids, as kids will remember camping trips forever. Anyway for anyone planning on camping in the near-future, [...]

With revelations that the National Security Agency has collected some 20 trillion phone calls and emails via an expansive nationwide surveillance network, most Americans have already come to the realization that everything they do is being monitored. But many shrug off Big Brother’s prying eyes by suggesting that, since they aren’t doing anything wrong, they have nothing to worry about. That may have been true several years ago, but the digital surveillance systems of today are far more advanced than most people understand. No longer are these machines simply recording the data and storing them in some historical archive to be pulled [...]

The New York State Division of Homeland Security is encouraging businesses to snitch on preppers as terrorists, urging that the purchase of MRE’s, ammunition or flash lights be treated as a suspicious activity. As the video above illustrates, the LZ Army Navy Surplus store in Auburn, NY received a visit from a state trooper who put up a flyer in the window which encourages customers to call the New York State Terrorism Tips Line, 1-866 SAFE NYS, to report suspicious activity under the mantra of the “See Something, Say Something” campaign. 1-866 SAFE NYS is part of Safeguard New York, an NY State [...]

by James Hubbard, MD, MPH This is part 2 in the universal-precautions series. See part 1—your disaster fashion guide—here.  Imagine there’s a long-term disaster. An infectious disease has broken out. It could be something as common as a stomach virus or as devastating as Ebola. When medical care is scarce, either could be deadly … and both involve the expulsion of infectious fluids, such as diarrhea (and, in Ebola’s case, blood). Two of your family members have gotten the disease. It’s up to you to care for them. So you put on your “personal protective equipment” and get to work. But when you get a [...]

I remember being stationed in Germany, a wide eyed 19 year old who lived in a new country with endless possibilities.  Coming out of high school I was never much of a “party animal” and had mainly stuck to sports, JROTC and work.  Yet there I was in a land where 18 year olds could get into clubs and even drink alcohol, stationed with a crop of Alpha Males with something to prove and more muscle than sense.  I was the new guy until the next new guy came in, at which point I would be ushered into the salty [...]

During the trip, I encountered several different situations that center around running across other people.  Some questions have been asked about my encounter with two game wardens on the river, I mentioned getting stopped by a game warden in the first leg, seeing fishermen along the river leg, and some rednecks in a power boat.  Going 150+ miles, it is just something that is going to happen and honestly, I am surprised that it did not happen more often than it did.  My goal when I started out was to maintain as low of a profile as possible, for obvious reasons and I took [...]

This morning I opened my laptop and powered it up, nothing.  I could hear the hard drive spinning but the screen remained black, not a good sign of course.  After going through various troubleshooting steps and multiple fix attempts I came to the realization that my laptop had kicked the bucket.  The good news is that I frequently back up all the data on that laptop so nothing really was lost, and at a price (new) of around $350 I guess it gave me a solid 4 years of life.  So if you aren’t in the habit of backing up [...]

by James Hubbard, MD, MPH Back when I was growing up, I don’t think the phrase “universal precautions” was in a health care worker’s vocabulary. Now, we’re well-versed in such “precautions”—techniques that help prevent spreading diseases. But back then, people were more lax. We lived more like you might live at home with your family today—which is not like you’d want to live during a disaster. Back then, sure, people with highly contagious diseases were isolated, but few health care workers were afraid of getting a little blood on them from someone with no obvious illness. (Of course they should have been because people [...]

A field technician demonstrates protective gear in Zaire during the first Ebola outbreak in 1976. This is the third post in my “Long-Term Disaster Diseases” series. See the rest here. by James Hubbard, MD, MPH A new outbreak of Ebola is going on in Africa, and Doctors Without Borders is calling it “an epidemic of a magnitude never seen before”—not because of the number of cases or deaths. There have been more in previous outbreaks. It’s because of how the disease is spreading. In the past, Ebola has always stayed confined to a small region. This time the same strain of the virus has been [...]

(THESE ARE MARK I’s – YOU WANT THE MARK II. THE PHOTO IS TO SHOW THE SHELL COLORS) At a recent club meeting there were 3 or 4 people that had this radio. When I got a chance to play with it I honestly could not believe what I was being told about the price. I ended up buying 3 of them. 2 of them as gifts for family members that get their ticket and a RED one for my BOB. I got mine last night and played with it for a few hours and decided it was well worth the bucks. Here [...]

    Hi… thanks for these great items n info. I am glad I found you here.

    I would suggest that the chances of a full-on SHTF zombie attack is somewhat less than a substantial collapse of the job market n how to survive when traditional income opportunities disappear overnight n totally without advance warning. This actually happened in the Argentine government meltdown in 2001. If you Google FerFAL, you will find his take on the underground economy that arose after the meltdown n how to provide for your family n even thrive under primitive markets n living conditions. He now lives in Northern Ireland, as he moved his family from Argentina over a year ago.

    I concur with the Quality of Life benefits derived from the Survival Mom that several of your correspondents have suggested. She has a unique touch and point of view that many find very refreshing, as well as good family-centric info

    I should point out that while I am personal friends and have met personally with both FerFAL n The Survival Mom, I have no financial relationship with them or anyone else. I do not have a website or product to market.

    Please keep up the good work. -CapnRick

    Please feel free to send me an email address to which I can send a copy of my Traveler Security report. It is too big to send via comments, n too short for a free ebook, so I guess an email seems the best way to disminate it. I have traveled the world on military service n biz since the 1960s, n learned a lot about being in dangerous places. This report is has several areas
    of travel security recommendations. The categories of info include…

    . Things you may do to prepare
    yourself for the unfamiliar security issues in unfamiliar territory.

    . Questions you may be asking and
    factors that may be considered based upon the situation in your area
    of destination.

    . Items for which you may be alert
    that may indicate possible threats to your person or valuables.

    . Travel Tips which include how
    to research the area, sources of information, planning ahead,
    blending in to your surroundings for safety, etc.

    . Dressing for success. How to
    maintain an edge in your favor in dangerous areas. Potential
    weapons/tools to aid in your security efforts.

    . Dealing with the stress of
    being a victim

    . Dealing with Terror concerns,
    broken down by world areas.

    Dealing with pickpockets/purse snatchers

    Hotel n cruise ship security awareness

    How to maintain a slight edge against potential attackers in areas where normal weapons are not allowed

    …and too many other topics to list.

    Feel free to delete this comment if you feel it is inappropriate, with my apologies.
