The Dangers of the Zika virus in America

As of 9 March 2016, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), there have been 193 travel-associated cases of Zika in the United States, but no locally-acquired cases. For now, what that means is that you probably can’t get Zika in the U.S. from mosquitos. You could get Zika if you travel to […]

Suggestions for OPSEC when the SHTF

If you are much more thoroughly prepared for all kinds of disasters than other persons, you have a problem: unprepared persons will want your preps. At first, they might ask nicely. But if the SHTF and people find themselves in need, for an extended period of time, you will be the focus of their malicious […]

On Becoming a Well-Rounded Prepper

The problem is common among preppers and survivalists: over-emphasis on one or a few categories of prepping. At the same time, other types of necessities are omitted or given a short shrift. I’m guilty of this prepping error too. If you read this blog regularly, well, you may have noticed a plethora of posts on […]

Is the Desert Tech MDR the ultimate survival rifle?

The guys at Desert Tech make serious rifles for serious operators. Their initial claim to fame was based on their bullpup version of high-end bolt-action sniper rifles, like the SRS-A1.

Prepping will be very controversial when the SHTF

Right now, prepping is seen by society at large as strange and a little silly. Shows like “Doomsday Preppers” has given prepping a bad name, making us seem like paranoid but harmless eccentrics. The average citizen sees no need to “prep”, since he assumes that everything he needs will always be immediately available via local […]
