DIY Prepper Projects

OPSEC for preppers
If you're into DIY (Do It Yourself) homemade prepper projects, this is the page that you want to share on facebook and pinterest - and bookmark.

I love taking the time to figure out how to do things myself. It's great to be able to find a bunch of junk, put it all together, and make something useful out of it.

I spent MANY years in aerospace manufacturing so I have a pretty good idea how to put things together and document how it's done. What I try to do here is come up with a project that you'd find useful and do all the research for you. As I'm doing it, I explain the theory behind it - so you can do it yourself with whatever material you have available. MacGyverism is a skill that you really need to have to survive the world, especially if SHTF.

Here are the topics that I focus on when deciding to build a homemade project or research and explain them: solar projects, homesteading projects, electronic projects, camping projects, making things for survival situations, or anything that I think a prepper or camper might want to know how to build - and maybe even actually build it themselves.

Let me know if you have a project that you'd like to see explained or want to understand how something works. Even if I don't build it right away, it might be interesting enough to everyone to have the theory explained and some suggestions on how to do it better.
