Traveling to Your Safe Haven During a WROL Event- Part 1

0

by E.P., Survival Blog:

This article will provide general guidance and a few specific examples on getting your team to your safe haven destination during a “Without Rule of Law” (WROL) event in one piece. I am an engineer and a lawyer by trade. In my 20+ years of prepping, I have come across few fellow preppers with a well thought out plan for traveling to their bug out location during a WROL event.

I have an important note at the outset. With respect to all of the comments below, it is assumed a WROL event has occurred. Most of us are well on their way to acquiring enough ammunition, firearms, food, water, medical supplies, et cetera for facing a WROL event. On the other hand, preparing the group for moving to the safe location seems to be one of the last issues addressed.

Chris Martenson – Planning Ahead

by Kerry Lutz, Financial Survival Network:

Chris Martenson believes we’re in a unique time in history. The truth is being suppressed at every turn. Ordinary people are being kept in a bubble. Our only hope for the future is to accept where we’re at and plan accordingly. The good news? If we do this right, we reclaim our lives, our sense of meaning, our connection to each other and the sacred, and we fulfill our potential as creative stewards of planet Earth.

Sustainable Prepping: 5 Alternative Energy Types for When the SHTF

by Joshua Krause, Ready Nutrition:

There are actually a lot of different types of energy sources to tap into after a disaster strikes. One of the major differences is that unless you have formed some kind of intentional community or have a group of like-minded individuals in your area, you will be the engineer, the mechanic, and the maintenance man all rolled into one. To digress just a bit, this is why shows such as “The Colony” (the reality show, not the aliens), and “Doomsday Preppers” are productive for the introduction of ideas. Those ideas need to be researched and employed, in that order.

A Maslow-Like Hierarchy of Survival, by I. M. Learning

from Survival Blog:

Maslow’s Hierarchy details the steps a person needs to achieve to be able to function at a level of success.

Food and Water
The first step is ensuring a supply of food and water. Any newbie to prepping is at least aware of this in the basic sense. But how much food and how much water is necessary? Where do you put it? How do you keep the food usable and the water available and potable?

Twenty-Five Year Food Buckets
I started out, as I’m sure many new to prepping do, buying 25-year food buckets. I’m not saying that isn’t a good idea, but I began scrutinizing what was actually in those buckets. Not only does everything require some amount of water, but a lot of those buckets are full of powder to make drinks. So, I changed tactics and began just ordering the meat buckets. Unfortunately, I bought buckets that had two to three times as much rice as there was meat. Again, I began doing some research on canned foods and was surprised how many cans of meat and bags of rice I could buy for a fraction of the cost of one 25-year bucket.

Eat Mangoes For Gut Health Study Reveals

by Mae Chan, The Sleuth Journal:

Next time you suffer from constipation, you may want to consider grabbing a mango instead of reaching for a fiber supplement, suggests a new Texas A & M University pilot study published in the peer-reviewed journal Molecular Nutrition and Food Research.

Mangoes may very well be the king of all fruits. They fight cancer, alkalize the body, aid in weight loss, regulate diabetes, help digestion, clean your skin, and make the perfect snack.

How Prepping for the End of the World Gets You Through Smaller Emergencies, Too

by S. G., The Organic Prepper:

If you’re like me, a lot of your prepping is for end-of-the-world events, but I recently learned how my post-apocalyptic plans can help with smaller emergencies, too.

One of my favorite books is One Second After. Not only was the story gripping, but, it motivated me to transition from having some “extra things for storms” to hardcore prepping. While, generally speaking, that is a good thing, the story motivated me to focus on serious SHTF events. The kind that would end life as we know it, destroy society, and make Mad Max look like a kindergartner’s storybook. While that is entertaining and good to prep for if all other bases are covered—it can actually be detrimental if more realistic bases are NOT covered.

The Amazing Science of Ginger Revealed

by Sayer Ji, The Sleuth Journal:

Beautiful Ginger. We all know it as a spice. Some of us even use it as a “home remedy.” But why is it still not considered part of the conventional medical standard of care?

Lack of evidence, they say…

But this is exactly why I created GreenMedInfo.com: to centralize and disseminate as widely as possible the Science of Natural Healing.

Herbal support for Type 2 diabetes can provide natural glycemic control

by Ralph Flores, Natural News:

The problem we have with diabetes isn’t going away anytime soon. Based on the latest data from the World Health Organization (WHO), more than 400 people around the world have the condition, and 1.6 million deaths per year are directly caused by diabetes.

The most common is Type 2 diabetes. In the past three decades, reported cases have skyrocketed. To make things worse, at least one in three adults over 18 years old is overweight, which increases the likelihood of getting the disease.

Revolutionary Blockchain Tech is Helping Disaster Victims & Feeding the Hungry Without Government

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

As governments and bankers claim cryptocurrencies and the blockchain are tools of criminals, millions of dollars in aid — generated by these technologies — are helping the less fortunate all over the world.

To those unfamiliar with concept of cryptocurrencies or the blockchain, it is seen as a get rich quick scheme or something reserved to day traders and techies. However, while there are definitely people who venture down these paths, there are many others who are using this technology to help their fellow humans.

One of these cryptocurrencies is Dash which stands out above other digital currencies as a unified community by not only funding its own development but humanizing currency and funding charitable projects like DashCares.

Our ancestors survived on it: Hardtack bread is a staple survival food with a long shelf-life

0

by Frances Bloomfield, Natural News:

Mention the phrase “survival food” and you’ll most likely think of foods sealed in #10 cans. Those are good and all, but the most they’ll last you are a few years. A true-blue survival food item is one that can last you the long haul, around a couple of decades or so. Impossible? Not at all. That’s something that hardtack can do.

What is hardtack?
The hardtack is a simple cracker or biscuit made from three ingredients: water, flour, and sometimes salt. This bare-bones recipe is a combination that’s seen countless men through military campaigns, land excursions, sea voyages. You could call it the big brother to MREs and C-rations because that’s what it was – up until World War I.
