4 T’s of Emergency Communications Planning

4 T’s of Emergency Communications Planning - This article takes an interesting approach when it comes to disaster communications. I was delighted to see that one of the 4 T's was training. I think the assumption that we will be able to do something is one of the survivalist's biggest pitfalls.

How I Formed A Mutual Assistance Group

How I Formed A Mutual Assistance Group - This article is great because it represents how we as preppers can take advantage of the greatest resource that surrounds us. This, of course, is the people. We can accomplish much more in a disaster as a community than we can as individuals.

I am a huge fan of the MAG or mutual assistance group. It is my belief that now is the time for us to be making relationships within the community. There is such gold left unmined in communities across the …

How to Practice the Bugout Plan

How to Practice Bugging Out - This author offers up a method for practicing the bugout. Like anything else, bugout practice will make you better and more efficient. I think this is crucial as it will also open your eyes to various types of issues you may have along your bugout route.

The bugout has been turned into a bit of a game over the last 5 years and its a real pet peeve of mine. Maybe its the funny Disney kind of name we have given it. I blame much of …

Mortgage Free Tiny House Living: The 5 Practices for Downsizing

Why Living Smaller Is Living Better! The 5 Big Keys To Downsizing - This article is a great representation of how you can begin your own journey towards downsizing. I liked the fact that the author said that having less is not always the same as downsizing. We often get this idea that we must live in a box with one chair and hat to live a minimalistic lifestyle.

When I hear the word downsizing it often conjures up visions of children growing up and heading off to college. I see mother and father staring at one another inside a once necessary home that has suddenly just become a …
