Awesome Projects for Preppers--by Guest Contributor Matt Stevens While there are a lot of people whose prepping starts and stops with stockpiling supplies, there are many others who make it a lifestyle. These people ultimately end up much better prepared, because they look beyond just having food and water and make or buy things to take care of any eventuality. With the high cost of buying prepping equipment and supplies, more and more have taken to making their own.   In pretty much all of...

What You Need to Know About Lice-- By Guest Contributor Jackie K.    What I know now, compared to what I knew in January of 2010, are worlds apart.  If you’ve never had the pleasure of being exposed to lice, count your blessing.  I never experienced them as a child, nor did I know anyone who had.  I do remember, in elementary school, these ladies coming into our classroom on a regular basis to check our heads.  However, no one was ever sent home, and we would all laugh and say it felt weird...

Question: Would Hitler impact your preparedness today and if so, what would you do to STOP him from doing so? Or do you believe that if Hitler were around today it would have no impact and no place in the magnitude or pace at which you work to prepare your family for tough times ahead? Knowing what you know now, would you have the courage or determination to stop Adolph Hitler if he were still in power today?  What if he were doing to your own country what he did to so many others? Would you...

It's not often that one finds a stand-up person to wholeheartedly admit mistakes with no intent to deflect the brunt of the wrongdoing, but this evening I received this note of apology from the author of the article which appeared in the Deseret News today, which article had cast doubt on the legitimacy of the "halting of canning" article that was so widespread amidst   Deseret News Issues Correction Apology PreparednessPro.com     the media and the gossip trees of the LDS Church. I want to...

In outlining the Ten Principles of Preparedness, I’ve lightly addressed the first Principle, that of Spiritual Preparedness. While I make no secret or apology of the fact that this is a website based on Christian fundamentals, I rarely take on the topic of strengthening our Spiritual Preparedness in this forum; I guess because I don’t see myself as any sizable authority on a matter that’s so personal. But recently  it’s seems as if I’ve been barraged with widely divers and opposite factions...

Yes, there is a relatively panic-free way to approach having a sufficient supply of food for everyone I intend to feed. I’m sure you’ve heard the saying that the best way to eat an elephant is over easy, right?  Just kidding. The best way to eat an elephant is one bite at a time; so I’m going to share with you a few of my methods of attacking a chore that might otherwise seem a bit overwhelming to the point of paralysis.  I believe you’ll find these suggestions helpful regardless of where you...

  Hi folks. I’ve been tracking down some tips that I’ve received over the past couple of weeks. The results of my research have been disconcerting--to say the least—even for someone as prepared as myself. So I thought that the results were significant enough that I should share my findings with all of you. Bottom line, brace for impact at the gas pump and the grocery store registers in October. You’re about to see key grocery prices DOUBLE.   First of all, please stop holding your breath—yeah...

By Travis Chaffin—Guest Contributor   Food, water, and bullets are at the top of the list for the Zombie Apocalypse, because we will be hungry, thirsty, and need to shoot things.  When a group is holed up in a compound fighting off flesh starved zombies they need more, they need extra eyes.  A functional and well-designed CCTV security system can be the difference between being alive, dead, or undead.   Today we will discuss what you will need to create a zombie proof security system that will...

    What could be so important that I just HAD to write about your water storage efforts again?  Is our water supply seriously threatened? Is there a water crisis coming to a city near you? Is the U.S. about to experience a disaster that will affect your access to water? Once again I find myself struggling to write a particular article—not because of the complexity of the topic, but because I don’t want to cause any alarm, just some proactive behavior. It’s my hope that once you’re finished...
