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.

  • Knowledge Weighs Nothing - The best site out there so far about skills vs stuff.

Today
In keeping with the tradition of the FBI’s position on gun rights, it appears the Bureau is working overdrive to monitor and harass gun owners and the gun shops that sell to them. While government surveillance of gun purchases and gun owners is nothing new, a recent visit by an FBI Counterterrorism agent to a Columbia, South Carolina gun shop has only reinforced the knowledge that the U.S. government is growing more and more concerned by the prospect of a well-armed populace – particularly one that prefers to live without constant government interference in their personal lives. While the narrative surrounding “counterterrorism” [...]

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 [...]

Going postal just took on a whole new meaning. Earlier this year Kit Daniels reported that the U.S. Postal Service is joining other alphabet federal agencies in stocking up on ammunition and firearms. It’s an alarming trend that has swept the nation over the last several years and one that Alan Gottlieb, chairman of the Washington-based Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, calls “highly unusual.” Conspiracy theories abound over the stockpiling of some two billion rounds of ammunition to date, leaving many wondering what the US government has in store for the American people. Just last week, in the wake [...]

Recent weeks have led to a fairly significant drop in stock valuations, with many expert analysts struggling to figure out exactly why it’s happening. You’ll hear them cite the weather, or market overreaction, or any number of reasons for why stocks have seen their share prices reduced and why they’ll be rebounding in the near-term. What they won’t show you on mainstream financial channels is what’s really happening behind the scenes. Forget about all the minute-by-minute noise for a moment and take a look at the following chart. It gives a very simple overview of earnings growth trends for stocks listed on [...]

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 [...]

by James Hubbard, MD, MPH Many people have asked where to find all the medical supplies I’ve mentioned in my posts. Well, you find them all over the place—some in pharmacies, others in outdoors stores, some in health-food stores, and still more in survival outlets. Compiling an emergency medical kit can call for quite the time—and gas—commitment. So I set out to make life easier. I searched Amazon, eBay, and other sites and developed my new online “store and more”—a one-stop shop plus supplies guide. In it, you don’t just get what to buy but why. I even share my personal experiences over the [...]

Dr Oz called this natural weight loss supplement ‘the holy grail of weight loss’. That’s a very bold claim, but it caught my attention, and do you know what? Given what I have seen, he might just be right… The weight loss supplement is made from garcinia cambogia, which is a fruit from south east Asia. Garcinia cambogia contains hydroxycitric acid, or HCA and this has been shown to suppress hunger, reduce the absorption of fats, AND improve moods. The promise – you will eat less; less of what you do eat will turn into fat, and you’ll feel a bit happier too. [...]

(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.
