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 […]

Why You Need The Prepper’s Complete Book of Disaster Readiness – Part 1

  With so many books on prepping and survival these days, how do you know which are the best ones to put in your survival library? Each one has its purpose. Each one covers things just a bit differently. When you consider what you’ve gleaned from the books you have already, how well have they […]

Could the Novel Flotilla Show How Children and Teenagers Can Survive in Our Dystopian World?

I don’t know how it was for you, but I hated my teenage years. And I came from a normal family. Think about kids today growing up. There are more dysfunctional families than ever before. But what’s this got to do with prepping and the novel Flotilla mentioned in the title? I’ll get to that […]

What Might Happen in the Darkness After an EMP?

Some doubt that we’ll have a solar induced electromagnetic pulse. But would you want to bet against it? We know what happened in the aftermath of giant solar flares in the past. With the development of our modern technology since then, it’s anybody’s guess as to what might happen in the darkness after an EMP. […]

Could a Ferrocement Dome be a Survival Shelter for You?

It’s been quite a while since I’ve written about domes, but any time I have, the post has been well received. One of the most popular is A Few Tips for Building Domes for Survival Shelter. I refer interested readers to it often. When I found out about David Nash’s interest in building ferrocement domes […]

Why The Survival Medicine Handbook Should be in Your Survival Library

Joe and Amy Alton, aka Dr. Bones and Nurse Amy of, have updated and expanded their original handbook on survival medicine. Their first book is The Doom and Bloom Survival Medicine Handbook. The new book is The Survival Medicine Handbook. This new edition is bigger and better. It could save your life. And it […]

One Man’s Urban Survival Experience Could Save Your Life

Over a year ago I went through Selco’s One Year in Hell Online Survival Course. It’s a fascinating and instructive overview of Selco’s urban survival experience during the Balkan War in the 1990′s. We haven’t seen anything like that in this country since the Civil War in the 1860′s. I highly recommend the course because […]

Are You Up to Living the Unhooked Life?

I live in a rural area, but I’m not a homesteader living off the grid. I have a great deal of admiration for those who can live that way. But what if one day we’re forced to survive without today’s modern conveniences? Estar Holmes has lived what she calls the unhooked life and has written […]

Prepping Begins at 40

The title above is a perversion of an old saying that “Life begins at 40.” Only in this case, the 40 refers to The Encyclopedia of Country Living: 40th Anniversary Edition. And if you don’t yet have a copy of it, then let the prepping begin at 40. OK, that’s a round about way to […]
