Next spring one of my projects is to build a cattle field. The area I am looking at fencing off is 3 acres. Actual measurement is 3.21 acres, but a barn is going in there. So lets subtract .2 acres for barn and trees. There is an area next to the field that I was going to plant oak and pine trees on. This area could be used to expand the cattle field if need be. All I want is a couple of beef cattle and maybe some goats to keep the weeds out. My location is southeast Texas. What [...]

The Environmental Protection Agency is a federal agency that is charged with the responsibility of writing and enforcing legislation to protect human health and the environment. Established under Nixon in 1970, the EPA is another one of those agencies that sounds like a good idea, until you peel off the shiny friendly top layer to discover the stench of corruption underneath. Up until now, they at least pretended to be there to serve as watchdogs, but it seems like they've decided to give up on that silly illusion. Since they are looking after all things environmental, they need unbiased specialists [...]

Editor's Note: The following guide has been provided by survival and preparedness expert Joel Skousen. It has been contributed for by the Strategic Relocation web site. In previous briefs we covered several key aspects of relocation, including How To Position Yourself To Survive A Major TEOTWAWKI Event and The Reality Of Survival Communities and Ready Retreats. There's also an incredibly insightful guide on the The Gut Wrenching Reality of Bugging Out. In this analysis Skousen identifies the key problems facing those living in big cities as they relate to the feasibility of either moving to or maintaining a more remote location outside [...]

by Lisa Egan Originally published at Ready Nutrition By now, most of us realize that sugar is not a health food and is meant to be consumed in moderation. It's been linked with poor dental health, obesity, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, type II diabetes, cell aging, heart disease, and cancer. What is less commonly publicized is the link between sugar consumption and liver health. For years, fat was the subject of a dietary witch-hunt. It was implicated in obesity, type II diabetes, and a myriad of other health problems. The 2004 documentary Super Size Me chronicled the 30-day McDonald's-only diet of filmmaker Morgan Spurlock.

Bone fractures are definitely emergencies that require standard first aid followed by professional medical care from a doctor. However, there are several ways herbs can be utilized as whole body support after emergency medical care has been given. Before we get started on the herbal side of things, let's take a look at standard fracture first aid as a refresher. Fracture First Aid Always keep up to date on your first aid certifications with an organization like the Red Cross, when possible. It gives you hands on training that will be helpful in this type of emergency. Another great idea is to [...]

Welcome to this week's Survival Buzz with an update on my own preps and announcements from the Backdoor Survival blog. The wild goose chase for misplaced preps continues.

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at his Economic Collapse Blog. Editor's Note: It is clear that along with the decline of decent American jobs, living standards and mainstream economic vitality comes a rise in political corruption, lowered moral standards, decadence, slothfulness and general unrest. In short, the decline of America is beyond just economic; though it has been engineered from the top of the system, it is happening within the general population of the country. There are many symptoms, and even many causes, but underlying it all is a thread of upheaval for basic goodness that used to [...]

This commentary and analysis has been contributed by Brandon Smith of Alt Market. From its very inception, the Leninist/Marxist ideology of the Soviet Union made it a central priority to dispel and subjugate religious and spiritual expression. The state was “god.” No other god could be allowed to flourish, for if the people were given license and freedom of belief in something beyond themselves and beyond the establishment, they would retain a sense of rebellion. The collectivist philosophy requires the utter destruction of all competitors; otherwise, it can never truly prevail. Atheism became the cult of choice among the communists, for in [...]

What is parboiled rice? In our family, rice, not potatoes, is King of the Starches. This is because my husband grew up in places like Hawaii, Guam, and the Marshall Islands, eating rice every day of his life. When I started stocking up on various foods, I knew that rice would be a big part of my starches. Potatoes, not so much. Rice is just as versatile as potatoes and has the added advantage of coming in numerous varieties, each with their own particular flavor, scent, and texture. Parboiled rice was new to me when I first saw it on a food storage [...]

I own multiple holsters to use when carrying my handgun concealed: inside-the-waistband paddle holster, soft-sided hip holster, and a plastic hip holster. None of them are “bad” but I dislike all of them because they way they sit on my body. With each holster, the firearm is noticeable under my clothes. This is called “printing.” In fall and winter months when a sweater or jacket can be worn, it isn't quite as noticeable, but summertime (or even fall in Florida) meant not carrying on my body at all.

When it comes to essential oils, I believe practical and anecdotal uses are those that can be relied upon to deliver the best results. And so it is with one of the most powerful and versatile oils available, Frankincense. I do not say this lightly because truth be told, I initially shunned Frankincense, or “Frank” as it is called, because I thought it both exotic and expensive. Slowly, though, I began to recognize it's value especially when it comes to skin and wound care and its remarkable ability to relive inflammation and pain. What is Frankincense?

Are they okay in moderation? Should you strictly avoid them at all times? And if so, how on earth can you manage to navigate the store without stepping into a genetically modified landmine? And if you really want to challenge yourself, how can you do that on a budget? The anti-GMO movement is picking up steam, for a multitude of excellent reasons.

by Todd Walker A saw is safer to use than an ax. My Bacho Laplander folding saw has performed admirably for over 4 years. With an eight inch blade, this fine folding saw has its limitations when cutting larger diameter wood. But I love its portability. It has a permanent spot on my ring belt when I venture into the woods. I've used my folding saw to cut up to 4 or 5 inch logs. Over that diameter, I usually reach for my ax. But here's the catch… I sometimes need a clean cut on larger logs for projects at my trapping shelter. [...]

Mountain climbing is fun but it can also be very dangerous when you do not prepare yourself physically and mentally. Mountaineers take pride whenever they have succeeded in climbing the most treacherous mountains they have in their country. They share their experiences and tell their stories with passion to their peers who haven't climbed the mountains they have conquered. However, climbing a mountain is very dangerous when in an unfortunate event that the area where you are trekking is experiencing a monsoon or extreme cold weather due to a typhoon. When this happens, it is very important that you keep yourself [...]

Weather is certainly one thing humans cannot control. Even scientists are unable to predict it with certainty. Sometimes it is our best friend, such as when holding a delightful garden wedding reception, on a warm summer day. Other times it can put our lives in grave danger like when driving in a heavy storm. Winter weather is particularly not our favorite. The danger of winter weather varies across the country, but virtually all Americans will face some type of severe winter weather at some point, regardless of their location. Snowstorms are the epitome of harsh winter weather, and they can range [...]

Hey guys, just wanted to quickly let you know about a document I found buried in the CDC website. It's an older document (written in 1998) that provides an excellent resource for Ebola prevention in a time when modern medical facilities might not be available. Originally written for healthcare workers fighting Viral Haemorrhagic Fevers (like Ebola) in austere conditions like West Africa, it deals with prevention, early diagnosis and response within a limited infrastructure (again, something we might face during an outbreak and associated civil collapse).

Most preppers get the idea that communication is an important capability to have during an emergency.
