How To Charge Your Phone When There Is No Electricity



By Claude Nelson

December 17, 2018 08:09



What would you do if the power is out and your phone battery is dead, but someone’s life depends on you being able to make a call?

You can charge your phone from another battery.

Gone are the days of our grandparents. The modern society we all live in now seems to be unable to function without certain commodities. Among these, electricity seems to be at the top…

How To Pickle Meat

How To Pickle Meat



By KJ Barber

December 13, 2018 07:52



At least as far back as the 18th century, brining was a common way to preserve meat to make sure it wouldn’t go to waste. It became popular in the age of sail due to its ability to preserve meat for years, rather than the short-term preservation of other methods. Brined meet didn’t have to be kept cold, and it let people enjoy meat all year round without needing any complicated processes.

Brining was a…

How To Raise Mini Cows For Prepping And SHTF



By Cheryl Magyar

December 6, 2018 09:53



There are times in life when being small has its advantages. You need to eat less, you take up less space, and you use fewer resources – all important aspects to consider when keeping a sustainable future in mind. However, we aren’t talking about humans here, but rather mini cows – and your small plot of land will benefit greatly from these smaller, docile bovines.

3 Things That Happened Just Before The Crisis Of 2008 That Are Happening Again Right Now



By Michael Snyder

December 7, 2018 08:39



This article was gladly contributed by author Michael Snyder from The Economic Collapse.

Real estate, oil and the employment numbers are all telling us the same thing, and that is really bad news for the U.S. economy. It really does appear that economic activity is starting to slow down significantly, but just like in 2008 those…

I’ve discovered something that was rather surprising – that the ways we do things today aren’t necessarily the best ways to do them. As we look back in time we see that our ancestors had many ways of doing thing that have been lost to us today. While today’s methods meet today’s needs, they may not be the best ones around. There are many cases where the tools our…

Rosemary has given us many things over the years, from its appealing colorful flowers to the aromatic smells and flavors that enhance so many recipes. However, studies now indicate that the importance of rosemary may go well beyond what we already knew about this common herb.

Scientists who have studied the herb indicate that it can also help enhance a healthier…

The Only 4 Painkillers You Need to Stockpile For SHTF

The Only 4 Painkillers You Need to Stockpile For SHTF



By Rebecca

November 20, 2018 07:38



When you’re in a SHTF situation, the last thing you need to deal with is pain on top of everything else. From increased activity that most of us aren’t used to—chopping wood, traveling by foot, and tending to a full-scale garden, for starters—to lack of medical treatment if a new injury occurs or an old injury is aggravated, having effective painkillers in your stockpile is a…

5 Unusual Things To Pickle



By KJ Barber

November 16, 2018 10:14



When it comes to pickling we usually think of the classic options, such as cucumbers and peppers. But there is a whole world of pickling available, covering foods most people wouldn’t ever consider – did you ever think of pickling watermelon, apples, corn, or even pork?

Any of these foods, and many more, can be pickled. The art of pickling has been around for ages, because it not only preserves…

What Foods Can You Bury Underground For Winter?

What Foods Can You Bury Underground For Winter?



By James Walton

November 15, 2018 08:00



Are you familiar with the term “starving spring”? How about “the hungry gap”? Well, these were two terms that represented the struggles of the average person, pre-convenience foods, to store enough food to sustain themselves and their families.

Winter would come to an end, but there would not be a crop to harvest for months yet. Animals would be sparse, and it would be a…

What Really Happens When You Only Eat Walmart Cans For 30 Days?



By Diane

November 13, 2018 07:21



We started adding significantly to our food stores a few years ago, and now cans from our first large purchase are beginning to expire. I can donate them to my local food pantry, but my husband (Jim) wants to eat them all – nearly 400 cans of food. I do not want to waste food, so we will try to use them all before their expiration date.

We have always preferred…

This coming Veterans Day the nation will honor the service of the millions of men and women who have served in the United States Armed Forces. Every one of those veterans deserves our respect, but there are some who stand out even in such a distinguished crowd. These are people whose service went above and beyond what was expected of them, and earned them…

How to Make Cheese from Powdered Milk

How to Make Cheese from Powdered Milk



By Erich

November 8, 2018 08:26



Here’s a recipe I wanted to test out that puts to use the buckets of powdered milk I have stored. Remember, if you are constantly rotating your stored food (especially the 3-month food supply) not only will you greatly reduce the chance of anything going bad, but you’ll actually be learning to use your bulk-stored food and eating what you store — some of the most important rules in food…

I have problems with inflammation, so I am always looking to eat anti-inflammatory superfoods. In recent years, the Goji berry has emerged as a superfood with high concentrations of anti-oxidants. It is reported to have anti-aging, anti-cancer, and anti-disease properties and a host of benefits for the body systems.

These benefits come at a high price, $12/lb or more. But there…

When Did Independence Become Illegal?



By Homestead Dreamer

November 5, 2018 00:56



Over the last year, I have really started to notice a growing trend. At first, it was a news story here or there, usually talking about someplace far off. The news was disturbing, of course – people being forced to do this or that for violating some rule against what they could do on their land.

Then, I heard a story about a lady in Canada who had her sheep slaughtered by the…

Thanks to modern food processing technology, building up a stock of survival rations is easier than it’s ever been. From cheap tinned goods to tasty dehydrated meals that let you eat well even when you’re living out of a rucksack, modern survival foods make prepping easy.

Even your freezer is a powerful survival tool (as long as you can keep it working).

Weeds aren’t just a nuisance if you’re trying to keep your yard tidy and attractive. They can reduce the yield of your crops and even encourage the spread of disease and parasites.

The trouble is, unless you’re talking a very small yard pulling up weeds by hand is just too labor intensive. To control them you need herbicides. Unfortunately many herbicides can be bad for the…

Nettles are high in iron, potassium, manganese, calcium, vitamins A, C and protein (a whopping 25% protein). Nutritionally nettles are better than Popeye’s spinach: higher in protein, calcium (4 times), a lot more health benefits… and almost the same taste.

And it’s not that difficult to safely harvest them. Some rubber dishwashing gloves would provide enough…

Whether they came for land, seeking relief from religious persecution, gold, or driven by a sense of adventure, there are many lessons that the west-bound pioneers of the mid 1800s can still teach us today.

The men, women, and children who put it all on the line to travel the Oregon Trail were tough by any standards, but in 1841 a group of the most…

A reliable source of protein is always mandatory for long term survival. Those who have confronted the wilderness admit that finding a source of protein is one of the most challenging tasks, especially if unarmed or untrained to hunt. And when you finally succeed in killing a big prey, it’s mandatory that you have a mastery of good techniques to properly preserve the meat. If the preservation…

Talk to a soldier or veteran about their field rations and you’re probably going to hear a lot of complaints. Part of that is because soldiers just complain a lot (that’s no criticism – you would too, if you had their life) but most of it’s totally justified; field rations just aren’t that good. They’re nutritious and packed with energy, but they’re never…
