Countdown to Preparedness – A Resource for Beginners and Seasoned Preppers Alike

From time to time I talk to people who don’t know much about preparedness. They know they should do something, but what? Where to start? 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. […]

Paracord–Practical, Popular, and for Crafts, Too

Because paracord is a useful item to have in your prepping supplies, earlier this year I did a DestinySurvival Radio interview with Andrew Hallinan of USParaband.com. His company offers 550 paracord bracelets, anklets, and pet collars with more items and innovations on the way. You can see what I wrote here. Listen to the show […]

Living Strategically as a Prepper–How Are You Doing?

Prepping is about more than having the right gear and supplies. This week’s DestinySurvival Radio explores that topic and looks at the bigger picture of living strategically as a prepper. It’s a reairing of a conversation I had some time ago with Gaye Levy of BackDoorSurvival.com about the e-book she coauthored with George Ure called […]

How Would You Survive Without Money?

Perhaps you’ve given thought to the notion that our society is operating with Monopoly money. It’s only money because we still put faith in it. So could we live without it? How would you survive without money? Daniel Suelo has been doing it for a number of years now, and his story is told by […]

Introduce Young Children to Prepping with Jake and Miller’s Big Adventure

Books on prepping for children are rare and practically nonexistent. Nearly all the novels are for older readers. You might recall this year I did a DestinySurvival Radio show and blog post featuring the Prepper Pete books by Kermit Jones, Jr, which you can see here. But now you can introduce young children to prepping […]

Books Galore, Books a Bore

I’ve attempted to sell a lot of books on prepping through this site. But now I’m having second thoughts because of an eye opening experience I’ve had recently. My wife and I ran into more difficulty than I anticipated when trying to find good homes for the books in a friends unique and eclectic collection. […]

Long Term Emergency Preparedness Calls for Prepper’s Long-Term Survival Guide

When you think of prepping, are you thinking of surviving the aftermath of a hurricane or earthquake? As bad as those can be, are you looking ahead to a time when we won’t have running water, electricity, gasoline for vehicles or other modern conveniences for weeks, months, or even years? To take the long view […]

Surviving a Disaster When FEMA Isn’t There–Part 2

This week’s DestinySurvival Radio featured the conclusion of my two part conversation with Richard Bryant, author of When There is No FEMA. Rich’s book is meant to provide comprehensive, detailed information to help us as preppers survive a disaster when FEMA isn’t there. What if something major comes along that dwarfs Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy? […]

Surviving a Disaster When FEMA Isn’t There–Part 1

You’ve no doubt heard public service ads telling us to have a three day kit on hand with food and survival supplies in case of a disaster. But what if something major comes along that makes Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy look puny? What do we do about surviving a disaster when FEMA isn’t there for […]

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 Children Interested in Prepping is Easier with Prepper Pete and Friends

Could you use a little help introducing your children or granchildren to prepping? Well, getting children interested in prepping is easier with Prepper Pete and friends.   But who is Prepper Pete anyway?     Prepper Pete is the creation of Kermit Jones, Jr., who has written fun and colorful books aimed at introducing young […]

A Nautical Prepper Talks About Bugging Out to Sea – Part 2

An owl and a pussy cat went out to sea in a beautiful pea green boat. But nautical preppers they weren’t. Wouldn’t you know it? OK, I admit it. That’s a lousy attempt at poetry. And it’s a rather strange way to introduce today’s post. But maybe not when you consider that my guest on […]

A Nautical Prepper Talks About Bugging Out to Sea – Part 1

Ever thought of escaping to the water by boat? I’m not just talking about hiding out on rivers or lakes, but going on the ocean. Because I’m from a landlocked state and have no sailing experience, I freely admit I’m out of my element regarding this subject, but it’s interesting to learn about. And it […]

Why You Need The Prepper’s Complete Book of Disaster Readiness–Part 2

Yesterday on DestinySurvival Radio Jim Cobb and I resumed the discussion we started the week before on his book, The Prepper’s Complete Book of Disaster Readiness. I still had questions for him. His book covers so many topics relevant for prepping. I encourage you to get the book to see for yourself. It’s one you’ll […]
