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 […]

What About Water for Your Homestead?

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?

Paracord–A Convenient Way to Get it for Yourself

Wearing a paracord bracelet is a prepper fashion statement. It’s a conversation starter. And it could save your life. It’s also a convenient way to get paracord for yourself. With that in mind, my guest on DestinySurvival Radio yesterday was Andrew Hallinan of USParaband.com. His company offers 550 paracord bracelets, anklets, and pet collars with […]
