Bugging out -vs- Bugging in, SHTF waits for no one!

Both of these terms are decidedly “Prepper” terms, but have we ever really considered the true meanings of these? The differences and implications of each, and should we be equally concerned about both of them?  First thing is first, let’s talk a little bit about what each of these terms means to you.  Continue reading Bugging out -vs- Bugging in, SHTF waits for no one!

Prepping the Farmer to Prep the Farm

A post by B. C. Lauer

People talk about prepping all the time. Get your basics, food, water, shelter and you’re good, right? This may be true for the short-term cases, but in the interest of making it for the long haul, there are other things that must be accounted for, especially for those of us that live on a farm. Even if you don’t, it is still something to consider as you may have skills that could prove mutually beneficial to a farmer friend of yours. Continue reading Prepping the Farmer to Prep the Farm

Saving with Co-ops and buying clubs

Saving with Co-ops and buying clubs

11-3-15 buy-in-bulkLast week on Surviving Dystopia we talked about pinching pennies and ways to save with projects aimed at reducing the costs of some of the things we need.  Another way to save money and make those pennies last is to buy in bulk.  If in the long run you can reduce the expenses of your household wouldn’t this be something you would choose to do?

11-3-15 foosdBuying items in bulk can be a fantastic way to save a few pennies but we also need to remember these things must be stored.  When buying in bulk a few things need some special care, for example; Perishible items.  Taking care to establish safe methods of storage for such items is critical, so you can be sure you are saving those extra pennies.

Surviving Dystopia, What the heck does that mean?

Lessons of Generations Past on Prepper Broadcasting

Lessons of generations past!
DJ Cooper “Surviving Dystopia

Lessons of generations past!This week we take a journey into the past, an exploration of how things were done in “The Old Days.” For some of us, when we consider things the way they were.  Sometimes it is with nostalgia or with a whimsical smile it brings warm fuzzy thoughts. For others of us it may make us cringe at the thought of chopping wood or hanging the laundry outside on a cold winter’s day. No matter the feelings we get when thoughts of these days are running through our mind. There is much to be said for “the way we used to do it.” Continue reading Lessons of Generations Past on Prepper Broadcasting

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,
