Urban Emergency Survival Plan – Why You Should Have One

If you live in a city or town, you may have dismissed a lot of the information out there on preparedness because so much of it seems to focus on homesteading and self sufficiency. However, there are some basics that apply to all preppers, no matter where they live. Still, other questions arise, such as […]

Bug In or Bug Out – How Can You Know for Sure? (Part 2)

Bug in or bug out? Everybody who’s written a book or has a Web site on prepping has an opinion. There are lists galore. How do you decide what to do, and when? Bill Cirmo says if you’re prepared to bug out, you’re prepared to bug in. Think about that a minute. Bill has devised […]

Bug In or Bug Out – How Can You Know for Sure? (Part 1)

In the event of a disaster, do you bug in or bug out? How can you know for sure? How ready are you? Where would you go? Have you heard the term BIBO? It stands for Bug in, Bug out. That’s a perennial question for preppers everywhere. On this week’s DestinySurvival Radio, I share part […]

DestinySurvival Radio’s Greatest Hits for 2014

There’s no new DestinySurvival Radio program today. Since next Thursday is Christmas, and the following Thursday is New Year’s Day, the show’s taking a break for the holidays. I’ll have a new show for you January 8th. It may seem early to do an end of year wrap up, but below is a listing of […]

It’s the Biowarfare Threat We’re Not Expecting

The introduction of non-native species to North America isn’t new. It’s been happening since Europeans first began to settle here centuries ago. For example, Indians wouldn’t have had horses otherwise. But what if non-native species were used against us in a terrorist attack? It’s the biowarfare threat we’re not expecting. We live with the presence […]

The Provident Prepper–A Family Friendly Guide You Should Have in Your Survival Library

When I say The Provident Prepper is a family friendly guide you should put in your survival library, perhaps I should clarify that a bit. Lots of books on preparedness give info and advice geared toward prepping for the whole family. But few I’ve read describe personal family experiences. Authors Kylene and Jonathan Jones include […]

Going Gluten Free – Should It Be Part of Your Prepping Strategy?

Many preppers are storing buckets of wheat as survival food. A number of other preppers are going gluten free for good health and survival. The two approaches seem totally opposite. Is there a conflict here? Is going gluten free just a fad? Or is it truly a way to improve our health and even survive? […]

Long Term Fuel Storage – How Long Will Yours Last?

There’s an abundance of information about long term food storage available. But how much have you heard about long term fuel storage? It is an important topic for preppers, and it’s the focus of this week’s DestinySurvival Radio. Curtis Morton of Power Research Incorporated was my guest this week. He talked about PRI-G and PRI-D, […]

Refuge – Why Preppers Will Enjoy This Novel

Before I tell you about Refuge and why preppers will enjoy this novel, allow me to step back and look at what I see as the bigger picture concerning fiction for preppers and survivalists.   A Few Words About Prepper Fiction You’re probably aware that there’s a growing number of prepper or survival related novels […]

Bugging Out – It’s More Than Having a Bug Out Bag Ready

Bugging out. It’s a popular topic among preppers. How can you sort through the myths and misinformation? First, understand that there’s much more to bugging out than having a bug out bag ready. It’s vital to look at a bigger picture. And that’s what Scott Becker of pragmaticsurvival.com and I attempted to do on this […]

Preparedness for the Disabled and Elderly – Another Look

It’s no secret that America’s population is aging. That means dealing with more age-related health concerns. Also, in at least the past couple of decades, those with disabilities have become more vocal about their needs. Certainly, this carries over to prepping. For this week’s DestinySurvival Radio I’m reairing a conversation I had back in January […]

From Drillin’ and Shakin’ to Wonderin’ and Waitin’

That’s a bit of a peculiar title, I admit. But it summarizes what Janet Liebsch and I discussed on this week’s DestinySurvival Radio program. We covered two distinct topics–(1) the Great ShakeOut earthquake drill and earthquake preparedness, and (2) what to expect from the government in the aftermath of a disaster. The Great ShakeOut is […]

Ebola: How Concerned Should We Be?

You’d have to be living in a cave not to have heard about the wildfire spread of Ebola in west African countries and the possible danger it poses to other places, including the U.S. But how big of a threat is it really for us in America? How concerned should we be? There’s a lot […]

The Prepper’s Blueprint Will Help You Map Out Your Prepping Strategy

Architects and builders depend on blueprints to do their jobs. The Prepper’s Blueprint will help you map out your prepping strategy. On this week’s DestinySurvival Radio, I spoke with its author, Tess Pennington.   The Blueprint’s Drafter I knew about Tess because she’s been on DestinySurvival Radio before to talk about her first book, The […]

Getting Your Papers in Order is an Important Part of Preparedness

It’s true. It’s overlooked by many of us. Or we just plain procrastinate. But getting your papers in order is an important part of preparedness. We take for granted things like financial and medical records, partly because we figure we’ll always be able to get to them. With that in mind, this week’s DestinySurvival Radio […]
