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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Keeping Clean and Staying Healthy When There’s No FEMA–Part 2

In this week’s DestinySurvival Radio, I conclude my two part conversation on hygiene and good health with Richard Bryant, author of When There is No FEMA. If you missed Part 1, find it here. Keeping clean and staying healthy when there’s no FEMA to come to the rescue isn’t just something that makes us feel […]

Keeping Clean and Staying Healthy When There’s No FEMA–Part 1

In Richard Bryant’s book, When There is No FEMA, Chapter 9 is about hygiene and sanitation. It starts with a quote from P. J. O’Rourke which says, “Cleanliness becomes more important when godliness is unlikely.” That’s not just witty. It’s the truth. If we find ourselves in a grid-down situation, or if we’re living out […]

I feel better about our conversation if I can recommend a resource or two which gives helpful info. One such resource is Jim Cobb’s new book called Countdown to Preparedness. […]

The Prepper’s Workbook Gives Checklists and Guidance for Prepping No Matter What Your Level of Preparedness

Sailors and pilots are just two groups who would put themselves in jeopardy of losing their lives if they didn’t have these. It could be true for you and me as well. So what is this key element for survival? It’s checklists. Many preppers want them, and now many vital checklists are in one place. […]
