# 13 - "EMPs Don't Really Exist"

I got into a discussion with another prepper that stated that they do not believe in EMPs and they won't believe they are real until they see one for themselves. When he said that there is no such thing as an EMP I could only think of one thing - WTF, is he serious? This is the type of person that as a child I will bet if his parent's told him not to touch the stove because it was hot and it would burn him, just wouldn't listen to them and just had to see for himself. We have known about the effects caused by EMP events for almost 150 years since the first one we witnessed and recorded the destruction from in 1859 which was called the Carrington Event. This event was caused by a Coronal Mass

# 12 - Could North Korea Really Cripple The U.S. With An EMP?

The United States has been downplaying this very real threat for years, even after in 2004, two Russian Generals who also happen to be EMP experts told U.S. officials that the designs for the Russian Super-EMP warhead, capable of generating high intensity EMP fields of 200,000 volts per meter were "accidentally" given to the North Koreans and that Russian scientists had been in North Korea, helping with their missile and nuclear weapon programs, which included a nuclear EMP program. Unfortunately we have asshat analysts like Jack Liu and Jeffrey Lewis who write-off the possibility of a nuclear EMP attack by North Korea as "science fiction" and "unlikely". They believe that the 10 to 20 kilo

# 11 - Is It Really 1-Year's Worth of Food?

First off, before I even start this post let me first say that I have nothing against any company that may be mentioned in this episode. I am receiving no financial gain from, nor have I any other vested interest whatsoever in any of these products or manufacturers. I am merely bringing issues to light for your consideration as you prepare your emergency survival plans and fulfill your food storage needs. Many people believe that all survival foods are basically the same thing in a different companies packaging. While there are similarities between the various survival foods available, there are some important considerations that must be made when choosing which brand you will purchase for y

# 10 - Many Preppers Will Die Quickly in a True SHTF Situation

I want to discuss a topic that always gets people heated up and defensive. If you are one of the people that get defensive about this discussion and get heated about me saying this, then perhaps you should look in the mirror as you may be one of the people I am referring to. I believe there will be a few different ways that other preppers will react to this discussion: Many will get all defensive and say that I don't know what I am talking about and stop reading. If this is you, then I wish you and your family all the best in the end. Some will actually listen to what I have to say with an open mind and realize that there may just be some changes that you need to make to your disaster plans

# 09 - The #1 Threat in an SHTF Situation

I see preppers all the time stocking up thousands of boxes of ammunition and always trying to purchase the newest and fanciest guns along with all the high-tech accessories they can find for them. If they want to survive, they need to get their head out of their asses and understand what the real threat to their lives will be. Everyone always thinks about riots and gangs trying to steal their food and supplies as their biggest threat in a SHTF situation but they don't think about something much more dangerous and much smaller that will kill more people than anything else after a major disaster hits. Bacteria and other microorganisms will be running rampant after a major disaster, and if it i

# 08 - SHTF Mystery Box Subscription Review

Well today I have some good news, and some bad news. First the good news. I decided to start reviewing the SHTF Mystery Box Subscription service. This is a monthly subscription where every month you receive a mystery box with various survival type gear in it. There are three different monthly subscription levels. Each level increase increases the amount of gear included in the mystery box: BASIC - $19.99 PRO - $49.99 Includes Everything In The Basic Box PLUS MORE ELITE - $89.99 Includes Everything In The Basic And Pro Boxes PLUS MORE How the service is supposed to work is when you subscribe, your first mystery box is shipped out to you immediately without waiting (within 1 to 2 Business Days

# 07 - What's Your Mindset?

Today I want to talk about some things that are going to be difficult to think about, much less talk about. If you are like me, you are setting aside supplies of food, water, medications and other essential supplies so that we can be prepared for an emergency, disaster, or other hard times that will one day come upon all of us in one form or another. We prepare for these possible situations so that we can keep our families safe and provide for them when these situations happen. Unfortunately, most people however do not do anything at all to prepare for these events. Even though our own government has been advising everyone for years to do exactly what we are doing, they still do not listen.

# 06 - Long-Term Water Storage

In Episode 2 we discussed Short-Term Water Storage, now we want to focus on our long-term needs for water storage. Before we get started, first off, I DO NOT recommend setting up a rain catchment system on your downspout as your primary means of collecting your water. These systems are not designed to be used for drinking water. Rain water is non-potable, which means you can not drink it without first filtering it and disinfecting it to make it safe. We want to have a safe drinking water supply readily available that does not have to be treated before it can be used. Remember, there are a lot of pollutants in the air that become attached to the rain drops as they fall through the sky, espec

# 05 - Why Prep?

So why am I telling you that you should start stockpiling an emergency supply of food, water, and other necessities when you can just drive down to the corner grocery store and pick them up when you need them? Well, what if you could not go to those local corner store? What if those local corner grocery stores suddenly were not there, or could not open because they had no electricity? What if you lost your job and couldn't find work for a month or two? What if you were driving down the road today and were injured in an accident which forced you out of work for the next 6 months or year? Look at the economic recession of the 20's and the Wall Street Crashes in 1929, 1987, 2008 and the devasta

# 04 - Food Storage Basics - Canned Foods

Today it seems like everyone and their brother is jumping on the so-called prepper bandwagon. Being prepared for emergencies, disasters, or just hard-times seems to be the new thing to do, which is very good. The more prepared we all are for emergencies, the better it will be for all of us. Just look on YouTube, there are thousands of videos concerning prepping in one form or another. It seems everyone has an opinion and they all seem to be more than willing to share it with you. This is not necessarily a bad thing. The more information we have access to before a disaster happens, the better prepared we can be for it. Unfortunately because there is so much information available out there wit

# 03 - Ham Radio License Cramming

As a few of you know I am currently attempting to study for my Amateur Radio FCC license examinations. Over 30 years ago I was briefly licensed, but as soon as I received my Novice or beginners license I became too busy with the Marine Corps and family life to further my education and I allowed my license to expire and lapse. Now to get relicensed I have to start all over again back at the beginning, which is the Technician class level since the FCC has recently done away with the Novice class license. Since when you take a license exam, you are paying $15 for the exam session and not the individual exam, you can take multiple exams for the same exam fee. Since I am a cheapskate and like to

# 02 - Short-Term Water Storage (The Most Important Thing To Stock Before A Natural Disaster).

Many people overlook the most important thing that they should be stocking up on before a natural disaster occurs. They often think of the common things like food, batteries, gas, toilet paper, medications, etc., but quite often they overlook the most important thing. . . Water. Without an adequate supply of clean drinking water you can not survive more than a couple days. A person can last up to a week or longer without food, but only a mere 48-hours without water. To put it plainly, if you do not have water to drink, you will die. Now that we understand the importance of a clean uncontaminated drinking water supply, just how much water do we need to stock up? The Federal Emergency Manageme
