Freedom Derailed

It’s around this time of year when we focus on freedom. Either we reflect on how the United States gained independence, or we lament the fact that the vast majority never gives it a second thought amidst the fireworks, parades and hot dog eating contests. As preppers, we need to practice a broad view of […]

Wild Fermentation – Preserving Food for Good Health and Survival

This week’s DestinySurvival Radio revisits the topic of cultured food or food fermentation. Only this time the emphas is on wild fermentation. As you may know, this is a way of preserving food for good health and survival. It was back on May 1st that I featured a conversation with Kathy Strahan of KathyStrahan.com to […]

Watering a Garden in the Desert

A while back a reader contacted me in search of information about gardening in the dry Southwest. Watering a garden in the desert isn’t something we hear much about. The best help I could give her was to suggest that she contact her local county ag extension office, since they’d know about gardening practices in […]

The Berkey Guy Wants You to Have the Right Preps

My guest on DestinySurvival Radio this week is Jeff Gleason, the Berkey Guy. We recorded our conversation a few days ago, and when it was over, I realized there was a theme running through it. I can sum it up as stated in this post’s title–the Berkey Guy wants you to have the right preps. […]

The Black Berkey Primer – The Solution Berkey Owners Have Been Asking For

According to Jeff Gleason, the Berkey Guy, the Black Berkey Primer is the solution Berkey owners have been asking for. He told me in a recent conversation that people frequently ask him how they can prime Black Berkey elements if they don’t have access to pressurized running water from a faucet. Jeff and I recorded […]

Preparedness and Sustainable Living Meet at the Go Green Self Reliance Festival

If you’ve been a prepper for any length of time and are striving to live a self reliant lifestyle, you’ve noticed it involves more than having storage food and prepping supplies. There’s considerable crossover between preparedness and living sustainably. The interest in organic gardening, purity of our food supply, and health freedom are a few […]

Essential Oils for Aromatherapy – My Beginning

Essential oils have become popular among preppers. Perhaps you’ve seen articles about them on other prepper sites. Essential oils for aromatherapy are part of a movement toward alternative medicine. At the urging of my friend Gerald, I decided to try aromatherapy for a chronic cough. He recommended a blend called Breathe Easier Synergy Blend Essential […]

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 […]

Resourcefulness: An Asset for Preppers to Develop

There’s no question that resourcefulness is an asset for preppers. Some of us have it. Others of us wish we had it. Or at least we wish we were better at it. Thankfully, these days there’s a plethora of Web sites and books to give you more information on a wide variety of prepping topics […]

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 […]

The video below shows you how one man has made a homemade water distiller for water purification. Be sure to read the cautionary notes below the video.     Here are a […]

Homesteading–If It’s Part of Your Prepping Strategy, Find Encouragement from Donna Miller’s Example

If homesteading is part of your prepping strategy, get encouragement from Donna Miller’s example. Donna and her husband were fortunate enough to turn a potential bug out location in the mountains of North Carolina into a homestead. It’s a preparedness adventure for them, and they’re practicing the simple life they encourage others to live. Donna […]

A while back I was given the opportunity to try the Wise Favorites package for review from Wise Food Storage. This is their best selling meals packed into one package.
