The Five Stages of Awakening

What does it take to wake up those around us? Is it possible? What happens when it does take place? The video below presents five stages of awakening. Those stages are parallel to the five stages of grief because we experience death of our old way of thinking. Perhaps you’ll recognize in which stage you’re […]

Some OP SEC Basics

Every now and then it’s time to go over the fundamentals, as they say in sports. Today seemed like a good time to review some OP SEC basics. However, if you’re like me and don’t have a military or law enforcement background, you’ve probably heard the term OP SEC, but you’re not sure what it’s […]

Putting Photos Online Could Blow Your Cover

It’s bad enough to know we’re being spied on by Uncle Sam and friends, but you don’t want to unknowingly give away more info about yourself than necessary to anyone. Did you know that putting photos online could blow your cover? As a prepper you want to protect yourself, your family and your possessions. That’s […]

Iron Mountain – A Prepper Thriller That Will Tug at Your Heart

If your conversations are anything like mine, perhaps you’ve been in a discussion with a fellow prepper recently when one of you has said, “The world we’re living in is like a dystopian science fiction story.” Yesterday my guest on DestinySurvival Radio was author Dan Haight, and we talked about his latest dystopian novel Iron […]

Getting Out of Dodge – Nowhere to Run? Nowhere to Hide?

Really? Is that true? When chaos hits and you’re getting out of Dodge, is there nowhere to run? Nowhere to hide? In the past couple of years or so, we’ve heard more and more about the government’s capabilities for spying on you and me. Surveillance seems inescapable. Old time communists and fascists would have killed […]

Ukraine – Could a Chapter From Its History Be Repeated?

Ukraine has been in the news much lately. However, I’m not referring to what’s happening there now. In the 1930′s they suffered from famine. But this famine wasn’t brought about by natural causes. Thus, this question about Ukraine. Could a chapter from its history be repeated? Will food be used in the U.S. as a […]

Are You Becoming an Underground Prepper?

My guest on yesterday’s DestinySurvival Radio thinks preppers are becoming more subdued and practicing greater discretion in light of what’s happening in today’s world. Does that describe you? Are you becoming an underground prepper? Yesterday’s guest was Riverwalker, one of the most popular guests I’ve had on DestinySurvival radio. If you’re not familiar with him, […]

When Prepping Gets Overwhelming, Here’s Something to Hang on To

What do you do when prepping gets overwhelming? And it can, no matter whether you’ve been prepping for three weeks or three years. Somebody else you know or have read about is doing so much better at it. How do they do it? My guess is they instinctively follow the lead of a writer I […]

Brandon Smith Offers Insights on Alternatives and Tough Choices on DestinySurvival Radio

This is not the America we grew up in. We face challenges that call for more than setting aside storage food, water, medical supplies and the usual preps. Are there solutions that work? Is it time to relocate to a friendlier part of the country? Are you ready to become part of an independent group […]

Why So Many Think Prepping is Boring

Editor’s note: Has prepping fallen into a rut? Has info on prepping become redundant? Could it be true that many people think prepping is boring?

Are We Preparing for the Last Great Depression?

Preppers are well aware we as a society have lost many of the skills our grandparents and great grandparents took for granted as a part of everyday life. Scores of articles and books teach us how our ancestors made it through the Great Depression of the 1930′s. If you want to read an excellent overview […]

If You Only Had a Day Left…

The end of one year and the beginning of a new one is often a time for reflection. So here’s something to ponder. What would you do if you only had a day left to live? I heard about a famous writer who was asked what he would do if he knew he only had […]
