The survival guide is not available for download
yet, but will be soon as it's being held up do to U.S.
Copyright. So we have posted some preliminary information to
get you started.
What most people don't realize is that
aside from unusually high radiation fallout during x-class
solar storms, is that there is no real danger from the solar
storm itself. Rather the real danger is the breakdown of
modern society lasting for weeks, even months on end from a
super powerful electromagnetic pulse (EMP) which the sun can
easily generate, causing power blackouts worldwide. Since
electricity is used to provide water for homes and business
alike means a loss of running water within days, if not
within hours if your on a well that has a hand pump on it.
The challenges ahead don't stop there. Powerful EMPs
knockout electronics. Since
cars to trucks use electronic ignition systems to run, not
only means a car not protected from an EMP event would stop
working, but the very trucks that delivers food to the
stores would also break down. Not to mention electronic
ignition found in mechanized machinery used to harvest food
crops on a grand scale would stop running.
From cell phones, computers, navigation systems,
laptops, electronic watches and clocks, to electronic
radios, television to hospital equipment, DVRs and so much
more, most of which would no longer work once the power
comes back up. Meanwhile people must eat and find water
fast! The average person can live without food for some 30
days, but can only go without water for around 3 to 5 days
Gas stations wont have power to pump gas except
gas stations that get creative use a generator. No doubt
what limited gas that's available at stations for cars and
trucks will most like go for an insane price. Once people
realize the power is not coming backup and most cars and
trucks don't work anyway, people will start to get desperate
for food and water within three to five days, going house to
house for resources. Depending where your are at, food gangs
will quickly become a serious threat to your survival. Not
being seen is your best option, otherwise you'll need to be
well armed with the courage to defend you and your family
along with what resources you have on hand.
So if you're not a prepper, once society
breaks down, most likely you
will become a statistic before you know it. Each and every
person reading this MUST understand that starvation causes
our fellow man to do things that he or she would never do
otherwise, and that's kill their fellow neighbor or stranger
for survival. People simply go mad and they cant help it. It
will be dog eat dog. Those who don't think this would ever
happen are not prepared once it does, which is exactly why
it will be dog eats dog. Those who have not will come after
those who have. Arm yourself, take gun lessons and lets hope
that things never get that ugly. But hope is not going to
protect you and your family when food gangs come breaking
down your door.
Like the captain of a ship or ocean liner, he has
lifeboats prepared in case of an emergency and gives it no
more thought. Preparing a lifeboat of your own in the way of
preparedness for a EMP event is equally important. Nothing
to lose sleep over as long as you're ready.
About bug out bags, which are survival backpacks with 3
to 30 days of food supplies: First, if you need to use your
bug out bag because society around you is breaking down and
you need to get out of town, all that food in your backpack
is a HUGE mistake! The reason is simple. Before you know it,
your bug out bag will be out of food and then your forced to
start foraging for food in the middle of no where. Where as
if you had packed survival tools in your bug out bag you
would be better equipped to forage for food.
Depending on where you are located in the world,
you may have to make small changes as to what survival
tools you pack in your bug out bag. Everyone has their own
idea of what should be in a bug out bag, and where no
different. However, bug out bags can only hold so much food,
not to forget water is extremely heavy. Here is our bug out
Here is our ultimate bug out bag.

- Your prescription medications.(Typically preppers order extra
medicine while others skip medications once or twice a week to
stockpile supply.) Note: Skipping medications can put
you at serious health risk. Consult your doctor about
extra meds for emergencies.
- One, hikers first aid kit. (Don't forget to add medical
scissors and plenty of Imodium AD for diarrhea in pill form
to your medical kit)
- Pain killers like a bottle of Tylenol 250 count.
(You may want to place them in a thick zip-lock plastic
bag for easier storage)
- One pocket size magnifying glass. Some pocket size
magnifying glasses allow you to significantly increase
the power of the magnification of which is a big plus. A
magnifying glass is also another way to start a
- Contact lenses? You are not going to be able to
properly deal with contact lenses for very long. If you
are basically blind without without glasses, then you
need to get at least one pair of glasses with a strong
frame, but two pairs are strongly
recommended. If you cant see very well without glasses,
then you better get two pairs of glasses, otherwise your
just tuff out of luck once you no longer have glasses to
- 2 eyeglass cleaning cloths. Glasses can also be
cleaned easily without soap and water just by using a
hand towel to rub the lens clean.
- One compact pair of foldable 12x Binoculars. If you
can afford it, I strongly recommend 60x binoculars which
are great to locate streams and rivers that are far
away, as well as locate game, and especially help you
spot other people before they spot you.
- One small pocket size travel mirror. At some point
you will need one.
- If you ware makeup, do not bring it with you, leave
it behind. (1) Makeup attracts bugs. (2) You will not
have the comforts of home to easily wash it off and put
it back. (3) Most importantly, you are giving up
valuable room for food.
- Forty-five to sixty Ready to Eat Meals in vacuum pouch
bags. If you're
a creative backpacker, you can carry up to ninety or
using an expedition backpack. Note: Only eat one ready
to eat meal a day, otherwise you will go through your
food in half the time. NOTE! The very fist chance you
get, start foraging for food RIGHT AWAY. Fishing is a
great way to start. This way by the time you run out of
the food you carried with you (and you will run out) you
will have already adapted to foraging for your own food.
Otherwise, you'll suddenly find yourself with no more
food, panic might set in, along with your body quickly
starting to become weaker and weaker with each passing
day, making all the more difficult to have the strength
to hunt for food. Acclimating yourself right away to
living off the land is vital in making a smooth
transition to finding your own food to eat, which in
most cases, is all around us out in the wild.
- OPTIONAL FOOD SUPPLY BAG: High quality hardware bag
with wheels, offering rigid plastic protection strips on
bottom, water-resistant, luggage grade nylon tough,
tear-resistant interior lining, with rigid bottom
section are an ideal way to carry an additional 300
Ready To Eat Meals. Note: Though it's on wheels, it's
still going to be heavy and hard to roll behind you for miles and
miles on end should you be forced to walk long distances.
Especially once your in
a more wilderness or rugged type area, which will make it
to roll behind you, which will slow down your rate of
travel. But in the end if you don't give up, or take
turns pulling it between partners, it will be well worth the
trouble. Or you can get a small one on wheels, the kind
used for carry on luggage for planes.
- Salt and pepper until you get use to eating from
the wild, a little salt and pepper will go a long ways
to getting food into your stomach.
- SEED!!! At some point you and or your party will
need more than just fish and meet to eat. A garden is a
must have for long term survival. Seeds are light and
pack easily. You need to check for which kind of crops
grow best in your region or the bug out region you plan on going
to. IE: corn, tomatoes, early carrots, squash,
cantaloupe, watermelon, cabbage, lettuce, broccoli,
winter cauliflower, Swiss chard, sweet potatoes and
white potatoes because one type of potato may get a
disease and then your screwed, onions, red beets,
pumpkin, Brussels sprout, spinach, and various herbs to
season your food with. Bringing seed with you is an
absolute MUST HAVE!!! Otherwise survival is going to get
really tuff and malnutrition will set in, making you
weak, which compromises your immune system. *Seed is
dirt cheep!! (DON'T FORGET TO TIE A
WELL MADE HAND TROWEL ONTO
THE OUTSIDE OF YOUR BACKPACK!! Typically hand trowels
have a small hole in the handle which is used to hang it
up on a wall. You'll need your hand trowel to plant and
maintain your garden.
- One small hand operated reverse osmoses water pump.(Avoid
muddy water or pre filter it with sand)
- Three spare reverse osmoses filters. If you're with
a group, have them carry extra filters as well as a
couple extra reverse osmoses water pumps.
- Two (belt mountable) water canteens. (One canteen is
NOT enough!) When one canteen runs dry, you know it's
time to start looking for more drinking water. Once we
become seriously dehydrated, were done for! That is...
unless someone comes to our rescue.
- One hundred water purification tablets for when
you are in a pinch for safe drinking water, otherwise you'll have to boil your
water. Once you settle into a long term shelter, you'll
have to deal with long term issues of making clean
drinking water by other means as you will eventually run
out of tablets and water filters. (Note: By filling up a
natural hollowed out tree trunk with sand (that stands
at least five feet tall) and then pouring water through
the top is one means to cleaner water. You'll have to
plug the bottom with a several inches of clay and then
using a knife to bore a hole in the side near the base
to capture the water. Should there be serious pollution
problems with the water, the water still might not be
suitable for drinking even after boiling it.) NEVER USE
WATER FOR DRINKING OR COOKING WHERE DEAD ANIMALS ARE
FOUND IN THE WATER.
- One, Three gallon capacity, collapsible water
container. THIS IS A MUST HAVE!!
- One subzero sleeping bag. If your bag is rated at below
zero, that means you should be plenty warm at temps above
zero. Dessert regions get very cold at night, sometimes
dropping down to near freezing or colder. Some desert regions even
have very cold winters.
- Two space blankets (with grommets) at least eight
feet in length. (One used to insulate you from the
ground, the other to place on you for added warmth and
to insulate you from your wool blanket. Space blankets
with grommets make for quick shelters from rain and can
act a ponchos.
- One small wool blanket six to seven feet maximum in length.
(A small wool blanket will make and break how warm you are
able to maintain your body as you sleep over the
countless months ahead.)
- Pillow? No matter how small a pillow might be, it
takes up valuable space that otherwise could be used to
carry even more, Ready To Eat Meals. Rollup your jacket
or a pair of jeans to use as a pillow. You can use one
of your t-shirts to act as a pillow case. There are
inflatable pillows, still, you're giving up space for
- Bed warmer. Place lots of large but smooth round
rocks next to fire and allow to absorb the heat from the
fire for a few hours. WARNING - EXTREME DANGER!! Never
use river rocks that come from the river itself as they
have extra moister in them which will cause the rock to
explode when heated. Additionally some rocks have air
pockets in them, causing them to explode when heated. So
you need to build a separate fire a good safe distance
away from your camp to test heating all new rocks before
heating them up at your main fire. Simply place the
heated rocks in your tent away from your body, as not to
accident burn yourself in your sleep. Rocks that are not
hot enough to burn you can be dragged into bed with you,
and place at least one of them at your feet on really
cold nights work wonders. (Do not allow ash to
accidently get on the rock(s) you plan on using in bed.)
- One backpacker's cooking set that fastens to your
belt or on the outside of your bug out bag. (Be sure to
pack at least one strong spoon, fork and table knife as
the eating utensils that come with the backpacker's
cooking set are usually flimsy junk.)
- If you're in a group, you might want to consider
having someone carry a thick iron skillet and a quality
cooking pot with lid as you'll need it to cook over an
open fire each night. (Always do your cooking at night,
as your smoke can been seen for miles around during
- Three steel flint fire starters, as you can't have to
many of those around and there pocket friendly too!
- Three butane and or Bic lighters. (Use these as a
last resort as you need to make these last as long as
- Waterproof matches contained in a small container.
(Use these as a last resort as you need to make these
last as long as possible.)
- NOTE: The ability to start a fire over the centuries
has been paramount when it comes to man's survival!!
Your ability to start a fire to cook and sterilize water
and especially to keep warm in the cold winter months with will make and break your
long term chance of survival. (Do your cooking at
night, as your smoke can been seen for miles around
during daylight.) YOU DO NOT WANT TO ATTRACT UNWANTED
ATTENTION TO YOUR CAMP.
PERSONAL CARE & HYGIENE:
- Straight razor and proper sharpening stone or use
the backside of your leather belt listed under clothing.
- Q-tips! A small pack of Q-tips go a long ways to keeping
your ears clean. Also helpful for some medical
- (Women) Its impossible to carry all the Tampons and
or pads you will need. So do you research on alternative
methods to make your own. IE: Two or three thick cotton
wash cloths folded properly. Use one at a time while the
other two are drying from washing them in a stream or
- Three good toothbrushes of your choosing. (Note:
Cheep toothbrushes break.)
- Three packs of Dental Floss. Use it sparingly, as
daily flossing is not an option, otherwise you will run
out of dental floss before you know it.
- Three large tubes of tooth paste. (At some point you
will need to read your survival guide how to make
natural toothpaste.) Note: As long as
you brush your teeth right away with plain water every time you
eat, you'll be surprised how well that works to prevent
cavities and keep bad breath down. Cavities are caused by the byproduct from the bacteria in our month when it comes into
contact with sugar. So unless you packed a lot sugar,
cavities will not be such an issue. So stretch your
toothpaste as long as possible. When we brush our
teeth and especially the back of our tongue with just
water every single time we eat, you'll be surprised how
little our breath stinks, if at all.
- One hair comb and or brush.
- Three bars of antibacterial soap. (At some point you
will need to read your survival guide how to make
- One, sixteen ounce bottle of shampoo. (Use it sparingly.) (At
some point you will need to read your survival guide how
to make natural shampoo.)
- One hand towel. (Hand towels can double up as a wash cloth.)
- One thick wash cloth.
- One heavy duty pair of nail clippers!!
- WARNING!! Do not bring or use deodorants, colognes
or perfumes as they attract bees and gnats.
- One army shovel. Used to dig drainage ditches to
channel heavy rain water away from your shelter. Also
used to dig your long term shelter into the side of a
hill so as to best camouflage your location, especially
when you are away hunting. If you are located where
winters are typically sever, dig down into the ground,
line the floor and walls with cut trees of the same
diameter using your bow saw. Then cover the hole with
large timbers, place the large sheet of plastic over the
timber and the cover back over with at least three feet
of earth. Mound the dirt up high in the middle as this
will cause most of the rain water to flow away from you
underground fort. You should build another watertight
wood roof above your underground fort as to make sure
you wont have problems during heavy rain. Don't forget
to make drainage ditches to channel water away from your
underground fort, especially on the uphill side. Dig
your entrance to go down from the side. The watertight
A-frame roof you made above your fort will keep the rain
and snow from getting into your entrance, especially if
you make a door for at the entrance of the A-frame roof
and close off the back of your A-frame roof. If you
transplant large shrubs to help hide your fort, and make
it look natural, you'll be able to hide your location
from most. Note: Thermal imaging from the air and
satellites will not be able to see you as your
heat-signature will be very low.
- One Leatherman, which is a highly advance all around
utility knife needed to work on hooks (like removing a
hook caught under your skin) as well as repairing your
fishing pole, and lots of other uses.
- One small pocket knife.
- One professional survival knife with seven inch
harden blade with belt sheath. Don't cheap out on the
cost of a quality survival knife as your life will
depend on it almost daily.
- One sharpening stone. (River rocks or most any
smooth rock will work in a pinch to sharpen your knife.)
Lean how to sharpen your knife right away!
- One professional pocket compass with sight. (Learn
how to use your compass right away!)
- One AAA battery pocket sized LED flashlight. (Two
extra sets of rechargeable batteries)
- One AA battery LED flashlight that mounts on your
head that ALSO has inferred lighting. (Two extra sets of
rechargeable batteries) Inferred lighting is key to
traveling at night and not being easily seen from a
distance, or any time you don't want to be seen at
- One shirt pocket sized AM/FM/Short Wave Radio (Two
extra sets of rechargeable batteries) You need to
monitor the airwaves once a week to know when it's safe
to come back, which most likely will not be for many
months to come; possibly a year or two or far longer if
marshal law is the new law of the land in the US. In
that case, once you've been discovered, you will be
apprehended and brought to a government run center.
- One compact solar powered battery charger. Some
fasten to a hat on your head to charge your batteries as
you hike! Pretty cool!
- One bow saw with twenty four inch blade. (Used
to make long term shelter, fell six inch trees, and cut firewood)
THIS IS A MUST HAVE!! Whatever you do,
don't forget to get yourself a quality bow saw as your
life and safety WILL depend on it to build long term
shelters such as a small log cabin, wood fencing, cut
firewood and be able to do it very quietly without the
chopping sound that an axe makes. It's also faster.
- Six extra blades for bow saw as they will break. The
blades are light and slide easily into a tall backpack
when left in their cardboard sleeve.
- One hand axe. Used to 'notch out' wood and shave a
flat spot on both sides along the length of small timber
in building airtight shelters. The flat backend of the
axe to be used as a hammer. If you are bugging out with
one or more members in a group, some one can carry a big axe,
while another one carries an army shovel. The shovel is
key to digging into the side of a steep hill to building a
hidden, long term shelter with a low heat-signature.
- Hand gun of your choosing for sudden life
threatening moments. Note: Bullets are heavy and take up
a lot of room.
- One medium size crossbow (preferably collapsible)
and bring as
many arrows as you can comfortably carry. Crossbows are
quiet. This way you won't draw attention to yourself.
Eventually you'll run out of bullets, where as with a
crossbow, you can make all the arrows you want.
- A dozen extra arrow heads is strongly advised. NOTE: Arrows don't need
arrow heads to hunt game in a pinch as long as you are
relatively close to your game. With time, you'll need to
start making your own arrow heads.
- Three replacements sets of crossbow string. You're
crossbow is useless once you have no string for it. So
the more spare string you have the better, as your
crossbow allows you to hunt game with relative ease.
Practice all you can long before you ever need to use it
for survival, that way you're not losing arrows left and
right, let alone breaking them.
MAPS & GUIDES:
- One fold up map of your region covering at least two
hundred miles in all directions, if not six hundred or
- One detailed map of your local region and/or of your
bug out destination showing lakes, streams and rivers
that covers no more than a thirty mile radios, as your
map might lose detail of streams and small lakes.
- One pocket guide to eatable plants in your region.
- One pocket guide to building 'long term' survival
shelters for your region of the world.
THIS IS A MUST HAVE!!
- WARNING: Clothes take up a lot of room in a
backpack. So ware as much of your second set of clothes
as possible. Once you arrive at your bug out
destination, you can remove them. Remember, layering is
the best way to stay warm while at the same time you can
open and or remove layers to cool down. Note: Depending
on where you are at in the world, you should seriously
consider a set of thermal pants and shirt. If you have
to deal with cold blowing temperatures and or snow,
you'll need to be better dressed. In the event of cold
blowing wind and or snow, it's best that you find a safe
place right away to shelter yourself from the bad
whether until it clears, which may not be for days or
possible for weeks in some areas of the world.
Two warm long sleeve button down shirts; one on your back, the
other one in your bug out bag. You can always rollup
your sleeves and open your shirt whenever you get to
hot. You should make one of the two long sleeved shirts
flannel. Staying warm under all conditions is paramount.
You can always take off layers of clothing to stay cool,
where as you we can't put on clothes we simply don't
have to stay warm.
- Two T-shirts. (Four is strongly advised) Keep in
mind that clothing takes up a huge amount of room in a
backpack that otherwise is best used for food and
other critical supplies. So wearing any extra clothing
is best. Or tie it to the outside of your backpack using
a small nylon tube sack that has a built in, locking
- Two lose fitting pairs of green, tan or brown jeans
that is best suited for camouflage. (Do not use the
color blue.) You can ware two pairs of loose fitting
jeans for added warmth against cold whether.
- Two pairs of cotton underwear; one you wear, the
other one in your bug out bag.
- Two pairs of long cotton underwear; one you wear,
the other one in your bug out bag. (Man or woman, do
overlook long underwear!!) Your long underwear will
mean the difference between hyperthermia and survival.
Ware both pairs at the same time for extra warmth.
- Four pairs of cotton socks; two you wear at the same
time, (your feet will breathe better in hot or cold) the
other two pairs of socks in your bug out bag. Two pairs
of socks need to be quality wool socks and the other two
socks need to be cotton. Ware the wool socks on top of
the cotton socks. In hot weather your feet stay cool as
it allows your feet to breath as you walk, and keeps
your feet warm in cold weather. I ware two pairs of
cotton socks year around and do not have problems with
sweaty feet as long as your shoes breathe. In the winter
I always ware wool socks over my cotton socks.
- One oversized genuine thick and wide plain leather belt.
(Backside to be used for sharpening straight razor.)
Make extra small holes in the belt as to allow the belt
to fit you better.
- One, lightweight pair of tennis shoes with ankle
support. (Tie the tennis shoes to the outside of your
backpack.) You don't want to be stuck wearing your
hiking shoes all the time.
- Brimmed hat! You need to protect your face from the
sun. Mosquito hats are the best choice as you get the
best protection from both the sun as well as protect
your face from gnats, flying bugs and insects. Your are
plain crazy if you leave home without a mosquito hat.
Otherwise you'll find yourself wishing you had followed
- Quality binoculars! Like we said, at least 12x. Some binoculars
are small and fold up and fit in your pocket. A must
have so you can scope things out way ahead of you, like
looking for water, game and seeing your enemy first
before they spot you. I pack one 10x pair and keep a 60x
over my shoulder. Note: Most binoculars that have the
ability to zoom have a lot of trouble producing images
with sharp focus. So be prepared to spend extra cash for
a quality pair of binoculars with zoom that will also
produce a crisp image.
- One black expedition backpack.
Black, green or tan backpack, depending on your region
as you want your backpack to blend in with your
environment. (Expedition backpacks are
specifically designed for maximum carrying capacity.)
Note: These packs get heavy, especially when loaded down
with lots of food. So a roll along carrying bag is an
alternative way to making your pack lighter and or
carrying an additional six to twelve months of additional food.
Greater insight about roller bags on wheels can be found
in our SURVIVAL GEAR section below.
- One pocket guide to making natural soaps, shampoos,
- One leather belt to ware around your waist. You will
find a leather belt very valuable, especially as a
- One pocket fisherman and/or small collapsible
- Two hundred and fifty feet of spare fishing line,
(medium weight) and a hundred
various size fishing hooks stored in thin plastic
- Various artificial baits ideal for your region. Use
native live bait when possible as you'll have better
- One, one-hundred foot roll (or larger) of thin nylon string.
You'll find a million survival uses for it! So use it
- Several thick long candle sticks. Do NOT use them
unless you have to, as they will not last long.
- Two twelve by sixteen sheet of plastic commonly sold
in most hardware and painter's stores. Great for
reinforcing your shelter's roof from leaking until you
build a more permanent leak proof roof.
- Several dozen water purification tablets for when
you are in a pinch, otherwise you'll have to boil your
water. Once you settle into a long term shelter, you'll
have to deal with long term issues of making clean
drinking water by other means as you will eventually run
out of tablets and water filters.
- Note: DO NOT WAIT until you are almost out of food
and water to start foraging for food and water, as you
need to start adapting to becoming self sufficient as
quickly as possible. This way, once you run out of the
food you carried with you, you will not find yourself
suddenly starving for days on end, which makes you very
week and all the harder to forage for food, let alone hunt
- Paper money? Little to no use. Gold and silver coins
could be used in a pinch to barter, but paper money will
not be very useful. Carrying gold such as gold coins are
very heavy, but some gold coins might be useful in a
TIPS AND POINTERS:
- Preplan your bug out destination.
- Preplan at least two separate routs to get there.
- Pre-pack your bug out bag. Then re-pack it a few
times more. Each time you re-pack it, you will get
better and better at getting as much as possible into
your ultimate bug out bag.
- Use Google Earth in advance to locate streams,
ponds and lakes and especially near by residents at your
bug out destination.
- If possible, place a cache of supplies at your bug
out location(s) like your
heavy tools, canned food, rice of which is very heavy,
- Make a second cache of supplies in case you cant get
to your first cache.
- Locate preppers in your community that ideally bring
something to the table. Such as doctors, engineers and
especially a horticulturist or two.
- Do not locate your long term shelter beside a river.
(1) It will flood at some point. (2) People travel along
rivers. (3) Don't leave tall tell signs away from your
camp that people might be living in the area, like
unknowingly beating down a path to and from the river,
lake and or stream. Use natural animal trails whenever
- Build your long term survival shelter into a hill
side by digging in a little ways. Don't forget to
properly shore up the ceilings and walls with
strong timbers. Better yet, build yourself and
underground fort. It's warmer and safer from large
animals that otherwise would pray upon you as you slept.
- Locate the entrance to your shelter behind tall
bushes, or transplant lots of big bushes close to your
entrance, but keep it natural looking.
- Make sure you don't build where runoff from rain
water will be flowing into or over top of your shelter.
- Always make deep and wide rain channels/gutters reinforced with
rocks and or timber above and around your long term
shelter as to channel away rainwater.
- Catch the channeled rain water into a small
makeshift pond to be used for washing.
- Capture rainwater separately for drinking water
using plastic, or use wide leaves for lining a naturally
hollowed downed tree.
- Always build your shelter with a southern exposure
by using your compass to confirm south.
- Do not build your shelter at the bottom of the hill
as rainwater and avalanches from snow pose a serious
- DO NOT DISCHARGE FIRE ARMS UNLESS YOU HAVE NO
CHOICE!! Firearms can be heard for miles around as you will
alert others of your presence.
- Build your latrine at least fifty yards away from
your base camp, otherwise it will draw curious animals
into your camp area, some of which might be quite large.
- Have the men in your group regularly mark the area
with there urine (discreetly)
in a circular perimeter around your campsite some
twenty-five yards away from the camp's parameter with
urine. Typically this acts as a strong deterrent against
bigger animals coming into your camp unexpectedly as you
sleep. Have the men get together to prearrange where
exactly where this twenty-five yard border will be
established. All solid human waste should be expelled at
a predetermined make shift latrine far and away
from all natural water sources such a lakes, streams,
rivers and ponds. A separate latrine station is
recommended as to better accommodate any women in your
group. Parties of six or more should build another
bathroom facility as to better accommodate bigger
- If there is a water source near by, you should given
consideration to how you might use that water to
irrigate your garden. Possibly even moving your garden
closer to your water source. Keep in mind that wild
animals are going to eat from your garden and can wipe
out your entire garden as you sleep. So, protecting your
garden is a must. However this is not as big of a
problem with crops that grow underground.
As you can see, my bug out bag and survival tools along
with thinking ahead is
all about feasible, long term survival plan, rather than a four to six week
camping trip. We must keep in mind that once society breaks
down (for whatever reason that you find yourself most
concerned about to prep for,) that more than likely, we will NOT be able
to come back to our home for months, possible years to come, if at
all. So when we leave with our bug out bag and gear, we must do so
with the thought in mind that we are leaving for good.
Start exercising and go on short day hikes with a loaded
backpack to start building up the right kind of muscle mass
you body will need to carry a heavy pack. Even if you have
to rest every ten minutes or so, you will eventually get to
your destination with your supplies.
I might also mention that many believe in life after
death and thus are at peace with moving on into the
afterlife. So some of you may want to rethink things through
and simply prep to do your best to survive at home. Getting
your 'spiritual ducks' in order is strongly recommended. You
may want to seek spiritual guidance in this matter.
Lastly: Many people have beloved pets and refuse to leave
home without them. Unless you have stashed hundreds of
pounds of pet food in advance at your bug out location(s), you
will not have the required food to feed your pets. And if
you start feeding them people food, you will be out of food
in no time flat. So you need to give this some serious
thought. If you decide to stay home because of your pet(s)
after society has broken down, your pets will become your
demise in a dog eat dog world of food gangs, where home
invasion will be the norm.
That's it for now. Check back often as we will be
continually updating key information for a while to come.
Hope this helps.
