Survival In The Desert

It's unfortunate that many people equate deserts with a hostile environment that conspires against human life. In the popular media, desert areas seem to be considered at the top of the wilderness list for danger. The historical fact is, however, that the human race was cradled in arid lands and people are well adapted to survive in deserts. Learning to be part of the desert's ecosystem is the first step of desert survival. My philosophy is not to fight the desert, but to become part of its ecosystem. Being prepared is an obvious benefit.

The Radio That Could Be King

The AnyTone TERMN-8R handheld two-way radio has the potential to be one of the most useful radios ever made for preppers. The only problem is that you can’t buy one due to issues with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC.) See more on that below. I did get to examine one of the few in the US for this review...

Don't Forget to Check .....

To err is human and humans make ammunition. If it is assembled like this 9mm Federal round was, it isn't going to go bang and that's a bad thing if you need a bang. I picked this round up after helping a shooter get his pistol up and running again. It was from a box of factory...

Be Prepared

So, isn’t the main goal of a prepper to be prepared?

Scouting teaches skills boys don’t learn in school.

Becoming a Scout can make your son more capable and independent while reinforcing the values we desire of one another. If you join as a leader, you can enhance yourself as well as provide the example that boys look up to. All of this can make you a better prepper.

Can your family be gray?

A gray man is an individual who can effectively and efficiently adapt to the baseline of whatever environment they are moving in, consequently allowing them to navigate the environment without notice.

When we think about gray man concepts, we often imagine a man embedded deep in the Middle East, walking through a market gathering Intel on the local population for some shady sector of a government office. This man is usually decked out in "covert" tactical gear and bad ass sunglasses.  However this is far from the truth and it is also far from any...

Blue Line Breachers Badass Box

When this showed up, my first reaction was “what in the world?” The box was heavy, coming in at 17 pounds. I then remembered I was getting a review sample of a small gun safe suitable for mounting in a vehicle (though you could certainly finds places for it at home as well.) What I didn’t realize was that it....
