When The Trucks Stop, It’s Over

trucks

Systemic risk. I guarantee that most ordinary folks have no idea that if trucks stopped rolling all across America, within a short period of time nearly all Americans would be in a life-threatening situation from major delivery shortages. 70% of all freight that is moved in the U.S. is done so by truck. You (we) depend on that ‘stuff’ for our survival. [Read more…]

How To Really Prepare For Long Term Collapse

“The people who do the best (under such conditions) are not those who have prepared in an attempt to create a bubble of normalcy around them, but rather those who can adapt the fastest to changing circumstances.”

I very much agree with the quote above from a reader responding to yesterday’s article. It is well worth reminding. So many of us (preparedness-minded) focus (too much?) at times on our ‘preps’ – our ‘stuff’.

The fact is that it’s about much more than just that… [Read more…]

10 Hints For The Survival Kitchen

Here’s a list of general preparedness hints for the survival food pantry and kitchen.

Let’s get right to it:

1. High quality foods

When choosing foods that you won’t be consuming right away, it is important to use so called ‘high quality’ foods. This will help assure that your preservation method coupled with long term storage will result in a more nutritious and tasty meal later on. [Read more…]

If The Lights Went Out In America

The Lights Went Out

If The Lights Went Out In America

You may have plans for power outages of a few days, but if you were without electricity for a period of months or even weeks, “there is no master plan for the civilian population” says Ted Koppel, author of ‘Lights Out’ (describing how a cyberattack on the nation’s power grids could paralyze our infrastructure).

While most of those who are preparedness-minded know and realize that they cannot count on government to intervene and ‘save them’ in the thick of a major and overwhelming disaster, the cold hard facts unfortunately reveal that the vast majority of Americans presume that there is a plan, and regardless of the disaster their government will step in and ‘provide’ for them. This will prove to be a very deadly presumption… [Read more…]

Guest article, by ‘NRP’…

Hi y-all, after a few interesting and thought provoking comments on Ken’s Blog I had an urge (crazy me) to write a short series of articles on what I thought the “Perfect Prepper House” would be. Now I know there are literally hundreds of web-sites out there that will show you anywhere from a Doomsday Prepper underground concrete bunker-style “home” to multi-million dollar custom island homes, to the most elaborate “bunkers” actually built in nuclear silos, imagine that. This series of articles is not about that, and I will make efforts to stay clear of the craziness of “over the top” type of structures and homes/lives they portray. [Read more…]

Generator Maintenance For Preparedness

One of the most basic preparedness items is a generator. They do a great job for short-term power outage situations and many people have them. What many people ignore however is generator maintenance – which is crucial in order to be assured that during the next power outage, it will be ready to run. Imagine firing up your generator in the middle a winter snow storm only to discover it doesn’t start?! [Read more…]

Gangs WILL Rule The Cities

Gangs

Gangs WILL Rule The Cities

Here is one possible outcome for those living in the cities following a full-on SHTF collapse:

After TSHTF, Gangs may become the Number One problem in cities of any size. The gangs may take over a city very quickly starting with their own blocks and neighborhoods. Their numbers may grow very rapidly as those desperate for water and food will become their “new recruits” and may join for their own survival.

The gangs may become a formidable wrecking force for a number of logical reasons, and might be the downfall of many who are preparedness-minded while still living in the city…

Us2

Re-posted for your fresh input:
Gangs already rule the dark ‘underground’ of today’s cities. When TSHTF they will be unleashed and unbounded, enabled by the chaos that will become the new reality.

During this time, most law enforcement officers will be more concerned about the safety and well-being of their own families in their homes, and will likely choose to stay and defend their own property instead of leaving it behind to “go to work”.

People living in cities, or even the immediate population-dense suburbs, will be subjected to a very cruel and unusual environment. They will be HIGHLY at risk from foraging gangs.

Think about this… It is one thing to protect yourself and your family from an intruder who wishes you harm. But how will you protect yourself and your family from a gang mob?

The thing is, even in good times (today?) the gangs are armed with weapons, have honed their criminal skills, and are not afraid to use them. Can you imagine this after TSHTF?

Bog1

Gangs WILL rule the cities.

Most of us living our lives today do not see the underworld, the underbelly, the gang and criminal activity lurking beneath the surface, the drugs and dealings… They cleverly hide it, and it lives largely in the shadows of our streets. If you know what to look for, you can find it and see it, but most do not as they are too busy texting, tweeting, or talking on cell phones as they blindly travel the streets.

It will be a shock when it happens – when the $hit hits the fan.

Many preppers and/or preparedness-minded people living in the dense population of the city or suburbia believe that they will stay put and make it on their own after TSHTF. This will NOT be the majority case in my opinion. Confronting or evading a roving hostile foraging gang may be suicide or impossible for most.

It’s all about the numbers.

10, 20, 50 (or more) of them and 5 (or less) of you? Who’s going to win?

It will take clever planning, particular assets (which will be running out), and ‘enough of you’ (an adequate number of you) to deal with this threat. If you do not have overwhelming numbers or overwhelming defensive measures and/or protection, you will be wise to choose a plan that avoids direct confrontation altogether.

Here’s one idea: Move out of the city before the SHTF. Move out of densely populated suburbia.

We all ‘hope’ that the $hit will never hit the fan – causing a terrible collapse and social chaos scenario. We ‘hope’ that the-powers-that-be will hold it all together for years to come. We ‘hope’ that because things have always been fairly peaceful in our lives, that they always will be. We ‘hope’ that all the things that we’re discovering about the systemic risks we’re facing are just overblown and exaggerated. We ‘hope’ that the mainstream is right and everything’s mostly okay out there.

The things is, we’re living in a bubble. A cocoon. We have a very false sense of security that has only existed for a VERY small slice of time on the timescale of human civilization. We are living in a technological fantasy world of sorts. Our sense of security could be blown out of the water in an instant. Be aware of where you live and whether or not you will be in immediate danger of gangs who will TAKE your food and supplies (and worse) as they feed their needs to survive after TSHTF.

We must accept that ‘if’ the $hit hits the fan, that gangs will probably become your worst nightmare. And these may not be the stereotypical gangs that you visualize in your mind… they will include hoards of desperate people willing to do anything to survive.

Don’t say I didn’t warn you…
What’s your opinion about so called ‘gangs’ ruling the cities after collapse? Will this element organize enough to become a substantial roving threat? Will they remain in smaller groups as they forage through the city for supplies? Will a single household stand a chance against this element?

72 People Killed Resisting Gun Confiscation in Massachusetts

Gun Confiscation

72 People Killed Resisting Gun Confiscation in Massachusetts

Boston – National Guard units seeking to confiscate a cache of recently banned assault weapons were ambushed by elements of a Para-military extremist faction. Military and law enforcement sources estimate that 72 were killed and more than 200 injured before government forces were compelled to withdraw…


Speaking after the clash, Massachusetts Governor Thomas Gage declared that the extremist faction, which was made up of local citizens, has links to the radical right-wing tax protest movement.

Gage blamed the extremists for recent incidents of vandalism directed against internal revenue offices. The governor, who described the group’s organizers as “criminals,” issued an executive order authorizing the summary arrest of any individual who has interfered with the government’s efforts to secure law and order.

The military raid on the extremist arsenal followed wide-spread refusal by the local citizenry to turn over recently outlawed assault weapons.

BuletProofhome

Gage issued a ban on military-style assault weapons and ammunition earlier in the week. This decision followed a meeting early this month between government and military leaders at which the governor authorized the forcible confiscation of illegal arms.

One government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, pointed out that “none of these people would have been killed had the extremists obeyed the law and turned over their weapons voluntarily.”

Government troops initially succeeded in confiscating a large supply of outlawed weapons and ammunition. However, troops attempting to seize arms and ammunition in Lexington met with resistance from heavily-armed extremists who had been tipped off regarding the government’s plans.

During a tense standoff in the Lexington town park, National Guard Colonel Francis Smith, commander of the government operation, ordered the armed group to surrender and return to their homes. The impasse was broken by a single shot, which was reportedly fired by one of the right-wing extremists.

Eight civilians were killed in the ensuing exchange.

Ironically, the local citizenry blamed government forces rather than the extremists for the civilian deaths. Before order could be restored, armed citizens from surrounding areas had descended upon the guard units. Colonel Smith, finding his forces over matched by the armed mob, ordered a retreat.

Governor Gage has called upon citizens to support the state/national joint task force in its effort to restore law and order. The governor also demanded the surrender of those responsible for planning and leading the attack against the government troops.

Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, and John Hancock, who have been identified as “ringleaders” of the extremist faction, remain at large.

And this fellow Americans, is how the American Revolution began, April 20, 1775.

On July 4th, 1776 these same “right wing anti-tax extremists” signed the Declaration of Independence, pledging to each other and their countrymen their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor. Many of them lost everything, including their families and their lives over the course of the next few years.
———————————-
The (analogous) recounting of history (above) has been floated around the blogoshpere during the past year. It is interesting to reflect back upon history, is it not?

Would not these same men be labeled homegrown terrorists today?

Not saying that circumstances or parallels are the same today (they are indeed different as all times are different), and certainly not promoting the notion, but reading a form of satire can be an interesting thing…
The incident referenced in this article is of course not something that recently took place in the Boston area, but rather a recasting of an event that is widely regarded as marking the beginning of the American Revolutionary War: the military clashes at Lexington and Concord which took place between British troops (commonly known as “redcoats”
or “regulars”) and Massachusetts militia (commonly known as “Minutemen”) on April 18-19 in 1775. The “National Guard” troops were British soldiers, the “paramilitary extremist faction” was rebellious colonials, Thomas Gage was the military governor of Massachusetts and the commander-in-chief of British forces who had been sent to occupy Boston in response to the Boston Tea Party and other colonial acts of protest, and the “law enforcement” group was British troops dispatched to Concord (about 26 miles northwest of Boston) on the night of April 18 in order to destroy military supplies that were reportedly being stored there by colonial rebels.

The colonists learned of the British plans in advance, and William Dawes, Paul Revere, and others famously spread an alarm throughout the area that night warning that British regulars were about to embark in boats from Boston bound for Cambridge and the road to Lexington and Concord. Those early warnings allowed colonial militia to assemble in sufficient numbers to surprise the British troops at Lexington and confront them again at Concord. Those two skirmishes, as well as additional attacks on the British troops as they returned to Boston, left 72 redcoats dead. The colonial militia continued to grow as neighboring colonies sent additional men and supplies, and eventually formed the beginning of the Continental Army that would contest the British in the Revolutionary War.

Best SHTF Vehicles

SHTF Vehicles

Best SHTF Vehicles

Along the notion of SHTF societal collapse and preparedness for said ‘hit-the-fan’ collapse, regardless of what brings it on (e.g. global financial meltdown), one question is as follows…

What is a good (best?) post-SHTF vehicle?

I will list some questions and thoughts which might help in one’s answer. Because there will be different requirements, there will be different answers for a good (best?) post-SHTF vehicle.

Note: Not only are we talking about the vehicle itself, but the things that it might be equipped with that might make it that much ‘better’ for SHTF (features, options, accessories, modifications, etc..).

Bug-out Vehicle

Will this SHTF vehicle be required to enable you to ‘bug out’ of your existing location? One example might be that you live in the city or a major population-dense region whereby you know it’s going to get ‘real bad’ after the collapse as people get desperate and infrastructure crumbles. In that case, hopefully you’ve already thought about and planned for heading to a safer destination where you will be welcomed. But you will need to get there, in a vehicle.

Get-home Vehicle

Maybe you work in the city or population-dense region but you live well outside of the area in a ‘safer’ place, although a long commute. Lets say sudden disaster strikes while at work and you need to get home (e.g. major earthquake and infrastructure disruption). Will a particular type of vehicle be better than another?

EMP-survivable Vehicle

Some of you have been wondering about this next question… Which vehicles might survive an EMP (electromagnetic pulse)? While an EMP (weapon) attack ‘event’ has never happened before, it is well known that these weapons exist. ‘If’ it happens, it is said that so called ‘modern’ vehicles might become disabled due to the possibility of the EMP ‘frying’ their electronic systems (especially if closer to ground zero). Older vehicles without these electronics will not be affected in this way, so, which vehicles are they?

emp

Practical SHTF Vehicle

Lets say you’re already living in your ideal location when the world around you descends into social chaos due to desperately unprepared people who are now struggling for basic resources – which are now scarce due to a breakdown of the very fabric of modern civilization. What type of vehicle might be practical for life after SHTF in your own ‘ideal’ location? What will it be used for? And how will it need to be equipped to accomplish those uses?

Other purpose-use Vehicles

If you’re ‘working the land’, will you need a tractor?

Will the vehicle be used for patrolling and/or defense/offense?

Other Considerations

What about fuel after SHTF? Will it run out, making a long-term ‘perfect’ SHTF vehicle obsolete shortly thereafter? (A complete infrastructure and distribution breakdown scenario)

Maybe the collapse will not be completely disastrous in that there will still be some distribution and availability of fuel, it’s just that not everyone will be prepared to pay for it or trade for it. Let’s say that you are prepared and therefore you will still have access. So what’s the best vehicle to have?

Does it have to be fast and nimble? Or heavy, tough, and slower? Is speed even a factor? Will it need to be capable of clearing out obstacles?

A truck? Something else? What are the features? 4WD? Off-road capable tires? The ideal color? Diesel? Gasoline? Fuel consumption vs. engine and/or vehicle type? Winch? Other accessories or modifications? Mad Max? .50 cal turret? 😉

Your Opinions

This should make for an interesting discussion as you add your own opinions, recommendations, ‘use-case’ scenarios and the differences in requirements based on what you envision as your primary use (which may be different from one person to the next), etc..

 

 

Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.

This is a good motto to live by, despite how you think about things.

Individuals can still hope for the best (that things can and will eventually work out), but what good is your prosperity going to do if you don’t have anything to eat or a safe place to hang out for an extended period of time?

Why not prepare while you still can — when things are readily available and can still be

purchased at cheap prices? The coming hyper-inflation will make any such purchases beforehand look very intelligent…

To prepare for the worst, you need a plan. Why are most people so against doing basic

preparations that could be the difference on how they survive — or whether they survive?

History shows time and again that those who prepare always fare better than those who did not.

Having a plan and being determined to act on that plan will always be the best way to handle any contingencies, should they occur.

After disaster strikes, your mind is going to be racing around like a car on a race track. Preplanning and having a written set of measures to take will make someone’s life go much smoother when the SHTF.

Examples Of Finding Use For Your Preps Even Though TEOTWAWKI Has Not Happened

teotwawki

Examples Of Finding Use For Your Preps Even Though TEOTWAWKI Has Not Happened

There are some who prepare for TEOTWAWKI (the end of the world as we know it) with the full expectation that it will happen – that one day they will be able to pull out all their preps and implement their survival plan. And when it doesn’t happen (hasn’t happened yet), some actually feel remorse, regret, invalidated, even ‘disappointed’?

While this is not my view (I actually do NOT wish it upon us), I will speculate that many or most preparedness minded folks also do not wish for TEOTWAWKI and instead they look upon their preps and preparedness plans as insurance. Additionally, I’ll bet that many of you actually incorporate your preps and preparedness into your day-to-day lives as much as practically possible rather than waiting for ‘that day’.

Is this you? Which side of the fence do you visualize yourself? Let’s hear some of your examples how you may be currently using your preps or have found circumstance to use them even though the proverbial collapse has not happened yet…Sold-Out-After-A-Crisis

I guess I’ll start it off with a few of my own examples.

Regarding our food storage (including my long-term food storage), we actually eat it instead of storing it and waiting for ‘that day’. We have organized an effective organization and food rotation plan whereby we are consuming what we store (and then replacing it with new). First in, first out. Everything. Even the buckets of wheat berries (we make our own bread from milling the wheat into flour). Even the dry beans and rice (we regularly eat them and replace them in some of our weekly meals). Even some of the long-term #10 cans of various freeze-dried and dehydrated foods – we’re starting to consume some of them which we purchased many years ago. We regularly rotate through all of our grocery-store-bought cans of food so that none of them are more than 2 years old. In this way, we will never have ‘wasted’ our money and time spent on food storage, even if TEOTWAWKI never happens.

Another example is the money and time spent on an alternative energy source (e.g. my solar PV system). While my current project is not yet complete, I intend to utilize all of the available alternative energy in my home real time – even though from a purely financial standpoint the ‘break even’ investment payback date is seemingly unreasonable into the future. I will have a steady and ‘free’ source of electrical power into the foreseeable future, and if the power ever goes out from any number of ‘typical’ causes (storms), my critical electrical systems will not be affected. If we ever experience a grid collapse I will be in good shape. If it never happens, I will still benefit from ‘free’ power during my day-to-day life.

I recall one day several years ago when we were living out West – we lost power during a bad storm one night. As it turned out, a very large tree had fallen on a nearby house (destroying it – although miraculously no one was hurt) and tore down power lines and pole transformers. The power was out for nearly 24 hours if memory serves (they didn’t have an immediate replacement for the two needed transformers). I did have a solar PV system installed at our location and had enough power to operate the refrigerator, chest freezer, lights, my PC and some other things around the house. We also utilized our solar oven that day while preparing a meal (why does food always taste better under these conditions? ;) ). That said, we use our solar oven whenever possible, given a nice sunny reasonably warm day. We don’t just let it sit somewhere collecting dust, even though it is a ‘prep’.

Generally speaking, when deciding on what I might need for preparedness (a tremendously wide subject), I look upon preps as lifestyle tools. Not just something that I’ll put in a closet and shut the door. Though there are some things which are very specific and purposed towards something which may not be normally utilized day-to-day, my general goal is to always be moving towards more self reliance and less dependence upon external systems. A lifestyle. While it’s nearly impossible to become truly self reliant, the fact is that the more we are, the better off we’ll be (today AND ‘if’ TEOTWAWKI happens).

What are your examples having used preps without having to wait for TEOTWAWKI?

Politicians Will Not Save You-Only YOU will save you!

Politicians

Politicians Will Not Save You-Only YOU will save you!

Listen up folks… As the election cycle is beginning to heat up yet once again, and as we all begin to endure the relentless bombardment of news snippets and sound bites from the next batch of D’s, R’s, and whoever else manages to get ‘air-time’, there’s something very important that you need to remind yourself of – and it’s especially true today…

Don’t look to politicians to liberate you or to save you. Only YOU will save you!
They are just politicians!

Think about that…

Here’s more:

Many of you may already know that today’s politicians are, in many ways, two sides of the same coin. They are beholden to the money power structure (no matter which side of the coin they’re on) – and that’s true no matter what they will tell you.

728x90-SED-0026

The ONLY time that a politician will seem to represent you (and some are much better at convincing you than others) is during an election cycle.

I have been around long enough to have voted in enough elections and to have endured enough pre-election propaganda (and promises) – and to have witnessed enough post-election ‘assimilation’ into the ‘machine’ (where ‘we’ apparently vanish from their radars) – that I know how it ‘really’ works.

While I am NOT suggesting that you give up on voting (it’s our only peaceful recourse), what I AM suggesting is that you realize that these people are just politicians. They are people. No different from any other human being, except they’ve chosen a ‘career’ path of being a politician. The are NOT saviors. The will NOT liberate you. It’s NOT going to happen. Period.

Very UNLIKE the way it was intended, today’s politicians are in it for the career. Whereas the founding intentions were for people (representatives) to take a temporary leave from their existing job/life/career to truly represent the people’s interests from back home. Today? No way. It’s a career choice (with all the benefits) to be a life-long politician. Today it’s about the money. The BIG money.

These politicians are not going to save you or liberate you.
Only YOU will save you.

We are a nation of 320 million people who are ‘led’ (?!) by 1 president, 100 senators, and 435 representatives. That’s 536 elected politicians. Likewise, your state and local elected ‘representatives’. They’re all in it for the career. While the word, ‘all’ is not entirely accurate – I think you get the drift… I would speculate that the dream of many a local politician is to make it to the state level. Then perhaps the ultimate dream by making it to the ‘big time’ FED level. That’s where the big money is…

Okay – enough of the sarcasm. Let’s get down to brass tacks.

While I care deeply about the direction this nation is headed, and while I will continue to vote in every election, I have come to the conclusion (some considerable time ago) that this great ship, Titanic, is too big to turn around – and we’re navigating waters that are filled with Icebergs. We’ve already taken several hits and gashes to the hull, and there are some major leaks and flooded compartments. In fact the ship is listing to one side and I DEFINITELY hear the music playing happily up on deck.

These politicians are not going to save you or liberate you.
Only YOU will save you.

The heck with them. Get your own life in order. Shut off the mainstream news and focus on YOUR life and the things that you can do to weather the coming storm.

What are these things? Only you can decide. But I will suggest that you not do anything stupid. Get yourself out of the system as best you can. Don’t burden yourself with additional debt. Don’t be tricked into living beyond your means. Become more self sufficient. Become more self reliant. Become more independent. Even if you are in some way relying on the government today (no matter what it is), try to imagine your life IF that assistance were to diminish or be eliminated. Pull yourself up and do what you have to do to ensure your own health and safety. Focus on the ‘good’ that is around you. It’s there – you just have to look for it. After awhile you will see it more and more. If you have little – be happy with what you have. If you have lots – be thankful that you were so blessed.

These politicians are not going to save you or liberate you.
Only YOU will save you.

The Coming Disastrous Global Crisis

 Global Crisis

The Coming Disastrous Global Crisis

I know you can feel it… the coming global crisis. And that’s a good thing (that you know the disaster is coming). It means your eyes and ears are open. Hopefully you’re preparing. It’s coming like a freight train – one that can’t be stopped because of its enormous mass and inertia. This object is in motion and no-one’s going to stop it…

Earlier this year the Swiss National Bank cut their losses and un-pegged their Swiss frank from the Euro – causing massive moves in the currency markets. The Euro/Swiss franc went down by 30 percent. 30 percent is an enormous move! How would you deal with your ‘buying power’ going down by 30% overnight? It happens!

Us2

We will likely see more currency revaluations in the future, which will cause disastrous results for many who are unprepared. We will also likely see similar moves in bond markets and stock markets this year according to many predictions. “Wealth destruction will be massive and unprecedented.” “When the more than one quadrillion dollar derivatives time bomb explodes it will be too late to do anything.”

During a recent interview between Eric King (King World News) and Egon von Greyerz (who predicted the collapse of the Euro against the Swiss franc), he believes the global crisis is so dire (and near) that today’s gold at $1200 is a deep bargain – much more than it was during 2002 at $300.

Why does he (and many others) think this? Because world debt has grown $60 Trillion since 2008, and the problems are much worse.

The situation is now much worse than it was in 2008.

Debt is higher but not only that, massive amounts of money have been printed and interest rates have been lowered to zero and it has had no effect.

So when the next crisis starts, the governments will have no tools but they will still print money and it will lead to hyperinflation and it will be reflected in the gold price, which is going to go to levels that are unthinkable today.”

-King World News

Who else knows this? China. China is buying all of the available physical gold they can get their hands on right now, which is about 100 tons each month. Any gold being dumped from the ETFs is being immediately sent to China. Not only that, but China’s purchase of U.S. Treasuries (our debt) is way down.

Eric King says the end game is now unfolding (and many others will say the exact same thing). Central banks have created artificial asset bubbles. One of the major worries is the skyrocketing debt in the industrialized world. “We are about to see the endgame unfold and there is no better store of value than gold. We in the dollar world are about to learn that lesson.”

(Given the statement by King, I will add “Invest in yourself and your preparedness first!” Then, afterwards, consider some of your excess wealth to be stored in physical silver and/or gold.)

As people continue to digest breaking news out of Greece and around the world, Richard Russell (legendary newsletter writer) recently said “I note that many advisers are warning of massive movements in the stock and bond markets ahead.” “Some are warning of a crash in the US dollar.”

“The (US) government and the Fed have praised the US economy beyond reality – in due time, the truth will come out.”

For astute observers who know that the US economy is anything but in good shape, they suspect that not only are we in a recession, but if this comes to light in the mainstream that, the dollar will crash and the Fed may even turn to QE 4. Russel says “It’s a dramatic situation unlike anything I’ve ever seen.” “Physical silver will be scarce in the coming months and is now priced below the cost of production.” (making it a no-brainer investment).

Nearly everywhere you turn in the alternative news media, the warnings of economic global collapse are ratcheting higher. (Could this be an underlying reason for Jade Helm 15 ?)

Time is running out. Many believe that we have less than a year before the SHTF storm. It is time to re-evaluate your preparedness for a possible major ‘haircut’ in your purchasing power. How will you cope with that?

This could lead to civil disorder never imagined in today’s modern world. Prepare for your well being. Prepare for your security. Prepare for the coming financial Armageddon.
