    Surviving in Argentina Website ^ | March 13, 2013 | Fernando "Ferfal" Aquirre
    Everyone is talking about the new Pope Francis, former Father Jorge Mario Bergoglio, and there’s indeed lots of reasons to be excited about it. This is a man that just a few days ago, would take a bus and then walk into some of the worst shanty towns in South America, on his own. Even cops have to organize so as to enter by the dozens in these places, even hundreds when trying to arrest someone hiding there. He would visit them, baptize children there, help organize soup kitchens and spend time with some of the poorest, most needy people...

    I just ran across this handy little device and wanted to share with my fellow Preppers: This washer uses a technique of pushing and pulling the water through the clothes, without excess friction (which also reduces the wear on your clothes). This washer uses minimal water and because of the agitation motion, less soap. Use in a bucket, sink or tub. It also rinses your clothes using fresh water. A great item to have with your emergency and outdoor supplies.

    At Red Dawn: Hunting, Survival, Recreation, they specialize in homesteading, emergency preparedness and first-aid. Owner Gaylon Cornsilk first dreamed up this concept about a year ago. The doors have been open just six months and business has exploded. Cornsilk says, "This was kinda born out of a passion to see people prepared for any kind of emergency, natural or man-made. We are growing exponentially everyday. Obviously there's an air of people starting to notice and want to prepare for what's going on around them." Donna Harper manages the store's long-term storage food section. Some of the pre-packaged emergency food rations...

    International Business Times ^ | 4/29/11 | Michael T. Snyder
    Are the American people losing faith in the U.S. economy? The statistics that you are about to read might surprise you. Not everyone believes that the U.S. economy is dying (there are still millions out there that will swallow anything that the mainstream media tells them), but the reality is that there is a growing chunk of the population that has completely lost faith in our leaders and in our economic system. A brand new Gallup poll has found that the number of Americans that believe that we are in a "depression" is actually larger than the number of Americans...

    The Next Two Months: Best Case, Medium Case, Worst Case Mac Slavo April 29th, 2011 David Galland put together an analysis worthy of your time where he discusses various viable scenarios we may see play out with the US dollar, stocks, commodities, and precious metals in coming months: …given the current ill health of the dollar, I remain convinced that the Fed will pause in its blunt-force monetization, come June. And that is likely to provide a shot in the arm for the dollar – versus the equivalent of a shot in the head to the dollar, should they reverse...

    Americans Are Preparing At Unprecedented Levels Author: Mac Slavo April 27th, 2011 Do you have enough larder to feed your family and some friends if grocery stores ran out of food? How about several assault rifles and a few thousand rounds of ammo? Solar panels, a water filter, medical kits, bug-out bags, fire starters, tents, sleeping bags, some junk silver and reserve gasoline? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. It’s becoming apparent to many Americans that depending on our local, state and federal governments in the event of an emergency, catastrophic societal collapse or widespread disaster will not be sufficient to...

    The Republic ^ | 4/24/11 | DEBBIE KELLEY
    Four families in Yoder are building a sand bunker and stockpiling ammunition and weapons. A Black Forest resident has erected a geodesic dome on her 5-acre spread to grow vegetables, keeps horses for emergency transportation, in case she can't get gasoline for her car, and plans to acquire chickens and goats as food sources. A husband and wife who have a cabin on 100 acres of secluded land in Park County have weaned their property from the electric grid, acquired a three-year food supply and taken other measures to become self-sufficient.

    The Mail Tribune ^ | 4/22/11 | Mark Freeman
    People freaked out about surviving world disasters and economic meltdown have made a run on freeze-dried food in the past month. As a result, Albany-based Oregon Freeze Dry Inc. — the country's largest supplier of freeze-dried camp food — won't accept any new orders through the 2011 camping season. The company produces the widely sold Mountain House line of food pouches popular among everyone from overnight wilderness backpackers to Pacific Crest Trail devotees. Oregon Freeze Dry officials say they have never seen this level of consumer panic over emergency preparedness in the company's 48-year history. In the industry, the emergency-preparedness...

    Vanity head up: This weekend one of the Discount club stores is having an open house - a good opportunity to stock up without a paper trail. “Spring Taste of Sam’s Club Open House is coming, 4/15-4/17, each day 11am-6pm. No non-Member upcharges during this event, so bring a friend! “ Sometimes it’s useful to buy in bulk, but typically you need to have a membership – this is one occasion when you can get those member prices, without letting everyone know you’re prepping.

    How Long Can You Tread Water? Or, Why an EMP burst or super solar flare may only give us 6 months to live? NOAH may have questioned God about why he should build such a big boat. God might have asked “How long can you tread water?” (Bill Cosby) In the event of an Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) burst 250 miles above Kansas or a super solar flare, the permanent loss of the electrical grid would stop almost all food production and importation in the USA. Some estimate there is, at any given time, more than 1,000 pounds per capita of...

    If the proverbial you-know-what hit the global fan, would you be prepared? The answer to that question is most likely a big, fat no. After all, it's hard to develop life skills (e.g., growing/storing your own food, filtering water) while playing myriad video games or scrounging the Internet for funny videos to post on Facebook. Turns out, though, that while youmay not be concerned about mass chaos and world destruction, a growing number of people are.

CB? Short wave? Our lifeblood is communication. What are our options to maintain this link to patriots across the country?

Tell them to get out of debt and sell anything they can sell (and don't need) in order to get liquid. Tell them that Richard Russell says that by the end of this year they won't recognize the country....

Today, millions of Americans say that they believe that the United States is on the verge of a major economic collapse and will soon be entering another Great Depression. But only a small percentage of those same people are prepared for that to happen. The sad truth is that the vast majority of Americans would last little more than a month on what...

    The truck approached Chicago in the early morning light much like any of the thousands of big rigs that travel Interstate 80 on a daily basis. Hauling food, materials and life’s necessities and luxuries, it went unnoticed as it, and its load of potentially deadly chlorine, slowly headed into rush hour traffic. The driver had his credentials in check when he picked up the load – he had gone through the hazardous materials training offered by the small company for which he drove. With no criminal record, he easily passed the Transportation Safety Administration’s background check to get the treasured...
