Some iPhone Apps That Could Save Your Life

I never know for sure how much to write about today’s modern technology. For example, how much should you depend on a GPS unit?

Surviving the Collapse of the Internet – Is the Web Already Broken?

You’re reading my words now because the Internet exists. But as you and I continue to prepare for an uncertain future, we must consider that the Web may not be around one day. Or it could be changed dramatically from what it is now. Either way, our normal routines will be disrupted. But what about […]

If You Think Your Survival Depends on the Internet…

Editor’s Note: Today marks five years since DestinySurvival first started with a post called What’s in a Name? At that time I wasn’t sure if we’d all still be here in five years. Only God knows whether we’ll be around for the next five. But my guess is that the Internet won’t be around like […]

Yes, there is such a thing. One of my DestinySurvival Radio guests, Dennis Evers, told me about it a few weeks back. So I bought one in late April.

Since I had no guest on DestinySurvival Radio yesterday, it seemed like a good opportunity to talk about radio communications and survival.
