Best prepper and survival websites

Here's the Best Prepper Websites page. It updates every day with the latest posts of each site -- http://bit.ly/1kv3zLW  My 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.

Get a free Everstryke Match while they last. Lights in any conditions

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

Please don’t use my comments section as a venue for self-promotion – all comments are moderated. Only the best and most useful prepping sites are on this list. You are welcome to suggest sites, however.

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

Today
There’s no doubt that domestic law enforcement agencies on every level have been ramping up their militarization efforts in recent years. In fact, it’s gotten so bad that it has prompted Senator Rand Paul to call for a demilitarization of domestic police departments. “The images and scenes we continue to see in Ferguson resemble war more than traditional police action,” notes Paul in a recent article. We know that the Department of Homeland Security has been buying up billions of rounds of ammunition, military grade rifles, armored vehicles, riot gear and a host of other supplies. But local police stockpiles have remained [...]

I know what some of you may be worried about so here’s my take on it.  If the Feds want to roll me up and show up at my doorstep with an inventory taken from my insurance company’s database, I suppose the world will be facing much larger issues at that point.  As a matter of fact I don’t think the Feds or local Po-Po have the desire nor manpower to (A) collect and collate all that information (B) utilize it to confiscate firearms (C) ATTEMPT to confiscate firearms. I have a decent firearm collection and by that I mean that [...]

You Can Keep Your Phone Locked And Refuse To Unlock It It is your right to keep your phone locked and for you to refuse to unlock it. Doing this means they will not be able to look through your phone without your permission, should you be handcuffed or the phone is taken away from you etc. If You Are Not Arrested, You Do Not Have To Consent To A Phone Search It is illegal for the police to search your phone, if they do not have a warrant and you are not under arrest.

Pretty much everyone eats pasta and noodles (unless you are gluten intolerant). I think most people cook their pasta for between ten and fifteen minutes, but there is a way of cutting the cooking time down to just a minute or two. This obviously saves cooking time and money spent on cooking fuel/energy. It’s also useful for cooking pasta when camping etc as it dramatically cuts down on the fuel required for cooking. How To Cook Pasta In Just One Minute It’s very simple actually – all you need to do is soak your pasta or noodles in cold water for 90 [...]

Editor’s Note: We are on the cusp of possibly the greatest financial and economic collapse in the history of the world. That may sound sensational, but when you consider the liabilities taken on by the United States of America in recent decades (Over $200 trillion and counting) and the continued degradation of Americans’ wealth and income, one can’t help but wonder if this is how informed Romans felt before their entire civilization collapsed into a medieval nightmare that spanned centuries. In the following analysis from Michael Snyder, author of The Beginning of the End and founder of The Economic Collapse [...]

The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.” – Thomas Jefferson Does this chart portray an economic recovery in any way?

by James Hubbard, MD, MPH I thought I’d have a little fun today and walk you through what to do in some scenarios to test your basic survival medicine skills. To get the most out of this post, wait for a minute after reading each scenario and think what you’d do in such a situation. Then you can see my answers. And maybe together, we can come up with a better plan. You know, two heads and all that. (In this case, thousands of heads.) I think if you really participate we’ll all be the better for it. Thanks to Sara Hathaway for providing [...]

We have featured quite a few posts about life hacks, DIY and kitchen hacks previously. Everytime we do a post on hacks, I get loads of messages asking what exactly are hacks and life hacks? Simply put a hack is a new term used to describe a tip, trick or technique for getting something done quicker or easier than usual. The kitchen hacks on the post below by ‘Empowered Sustenance’ are amazing. Each one is genuinely useful day-to-day, my favourites are the avocado one (which I’ll be trying shortly!) and the cheap DIY Magic Bullet blender using your own blender and [...]

By Emily. When you first hear the word ‘prepper’ or ‘prepping’, the first thing that comes to mind is crazy, hoarder, nutjob, or those paranoid people who have a LOT of supplies of just about everything. What is a prepper? When you google prepper, a box appears defining a person who believes that an emergency is likely to occur in the near future and actively prepares for it by stocking food, ammunition, and other supplies. Accordingly, there has been a continuous rise of preppers over the past few years with 3 million in numbers in the United States alone. Most people see [...]

by James Hubbard, MD, MPH This is part two of my series about tips on recognizing childhood illness. Last time, I talked about illnesses with rashes. This time, it’s illnesses that come with bad coughs. If you can’t get expert help, you need to be able to recognize them so you’ll have an idea of how long they’ll last, what the most common complications are, and which can be helped with antibiotics in case you have them or can get to a doctor for them. If you wish, print out and store the chart, along with the one on rashes and the upcoming [...]

Disease scares getting you down? 4 action-based tips you can take other than just worry. by James Hubbard, MD, MPH Scares … can be quite scary. And the scarier the news, the more it sells. So headlines emphasize the worst scenario. A few years back, a producer of a popular television program told me their crew called this phenomenon of headlining the latest bad health news their “scare of the week.” Well, OK, they’ve scared us. Now what do we do? Just in the last few weeks I’ve read of MERS, multidrug resistant TB; listeria; plague; and the flesh-eating bacteria Vibrio vulnificus, found in warm seawater. [...]

(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 [...]

    Please consider adding PrepKnowledge.Net (http://prepknowledge.net) to your list of prepper sites. Each month we re-syndicate approximately 2000 headlines, linking back to the original articles, from over 200 prepping, survival, and homesteading websites. Including yours :) Thanks

    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.
