Syrian Conflict: Australia Could Run Out Of Fuel In 43 Days, Would Be ‘MAD MAX World’

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

Australia is at risk of running out of fuel in the next few weeks due to the ongoing conflict in Syria. The escalating situation in the war-torn country threatens to cripple the supply chains that keep Australia going.

While the International Energy Agency mandates that countries hold a stock reserve “equivalent to 90 days of net imports,” Australia only has 43 days worth of supply, the Australian reports. And that could be cut down even further if a global crisis threatens supply channels from places like the Middle East.

Grid Down: How to Get Water From Your Well When There is No Power

by Tess Pennington, Ready Nutrition:

One of the problems faced with an EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) is that your well will not be pumping water into your home. For those living in urban areas and are relying on municipal water, your water could also be short-lived and it’s important to have a backup plan.

Well water is a different matter entirely because it is your well and you are responsible for getting the water. There are several solutions to this problem, and we’re going to close the article with a “quick fix” to enable you to get to the water. First, let’s cover Operational Security (or OPSEC) regarding your well.

Dehydrated food makes great survival food: Tips for what to dehydrate that will keep long-term

What would you do if you woke up tomorrow to some kind of a large-scale crisis that brought about the collapse of society as we know it? Chances are you would be able to get used to living without things like your cellphone and the television fairly quickly, but that doesn’t solve the issue of being without one of the few things that your body absolutely needs to survive: food. Given the fact that grocery stores will almost inevitably be looted, and knowing that cooking will likely become much more difficult than simply turning on your oven, you will be forced to find more unconventional ways to make and store food – one of those ways is through dehydration.

Of course, if you decide to dehydrate your food, you’re going to have to learn both what foods are best to dehydrate and what foods you should avoid. We can start by taking a look at what kinds of food products you can dehydrate, taking into account both convenience and nutritional value.

Look both ways before crossing the street!”

“Take a sweater so you don’t get a chill!”

“Don’t let the gas tank get under half!”

Most of us have heard these and many other parental adages over the years – but how many of us really stop and think about the importance of such advice when it comes to being prepared?

Moscow Prepares For Nuclear War: “Stock Your Bunkers With Water And Foodstuffs”

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

The United States and Russia have been engaged in a war of words over military intervention in Syria, with both countries now mobilizing their armed forces in preparation for conflict. Though the U.S. public doesn’t appear to consider the developing situation in the region as a serious threat, the citizens of Moscow are being urged to prepare for nuclear war with America by stockpiling essential and life saving goods in their homes and bunkers.

Making a Homestead Evacuation Plan

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

With wildfire season approaching in California, my thoughts are with my many friends there who have small farms. Even if you don’t live in a wildfire zone, if you raise livestock, you need to have a homestead evacuation plan. Any place can have a barn fire, a chemical spill, or other environmental emergencies.

I’ve written quite a lot about evacuations since my family and I were right on the verge of it during the King Fire. Fires can approach shockingly fast, and being ready before there is ever a hint of smoke in the air is the best way to get out quickly when the time is short.

But things change dramatically when you add a farm or homestead to the mix. Suddenly, you have more living creatures in your charge than you do space in the vehicle. You absolutely must have a plan in place before a disaster occurs, because if you wait for the evacuation order, you’ve waited too long.

How to cook inside, with no smoke, without gas or electricity

by Zoey Sky, Natural News:

Preppers know that it’s important to have options for various survival scenarios.

For example, if you lose power, you will need a way to cook your food, especially if you have to stay indoors. After all, outdoor cooking methods will be hard to use when the weather gets bad. The options below don’t require gas or electricity, making them perfect for when there’s a power outage. (h/t to AskAPrepper.com)

Non-traditional places to find inexpensive survival supplies

by Jayson Veley, Bug Out News:

In the days and weeks following a large-scale SHTF event, supermarkets and department stores will be among the first buildings to be looted, meaning that if you need to scrounge for survival supplies, you had better either move quickly or consider unique places that other survivalists would never think of. Last month, ReadyNutrition.com published an article that discussed three places preppers would never think to scrounge for survival supplies. These are places that you really should only search in emergency situations, so keep them in the back of your mind until that day comes.

It’s time for another episode of Doomsday Bunkers of the Rich and Famous. You can find the last article about a doomsday neighborhood in Germany right here.

This time, we’ll travel a bit closer to home – right in the middle of…Kansas. In the small town of Glasco, Kansas, population 473, lies the ultimate in luxury bunker destinations: Survival Condos.

So, if you’re curious about how the other half intends to ride out the apocalypse, let me tell you: they’ll be living it in high style. But there’s always something to learn when you look at the preparedness plans of others. Let’s explore the Survival Condos of Kansas.

Interview With Prepper: ‘We Were Held Without Charges’ For Survivalist Facebook Posts

0

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

It is no longer a conspiracy theory, but a fact that people are being specifically targeted for their participation in what some call “prepping” and others dub survivalism. A couple from California had their home raided and were held without charges for making non-violent posts on Facebook about survival techniques and thought-provoking discussions.

We were able to sit down and chat with Sarah Leach about why the government felt it necessary to raid the home she shared with her husband over what amounted to thought-provoking Facebook posts. Although Leach admitted she wasn’t certain which particular Facebook post lead to the SWAT teams seizing all of their handguns and AR-15s, she was sure nothing she had posted was violent. Leach said her posts were meant to provoke thought, and hold those accountable who have committed crimes or human rights violations.

The top 10 best foods to grow for survival

by Zoey Sky, Natural News:

When it comes to prepping, it’s always good to know about the best plants that you can grow in your garden or homestead. If you have access to your own produce, you can cross food off of the things that you have to think about when SHTF.

If a survival situation involves a long-term recovery event, your food and water supply may run out, unless you’ve stored at least several years’ worth of food in your stockpile. (h/t to SmartPrepperGear.com)

But this isn’t always possible for all preppers, so you have two options: You can resort to scavenging food or growing your own. The best option is to grow your own food, but this may sound daunting for those who don’t have any gardening experience.
