As far as my understanding goes it seems that deterrents are one of the most powerful weapons in prepping and safety. I know there are people out there who have been beaten by life and they are hoping that someone breaks into their home one night so they can take their pain out on them.
For the rest of us, we just want to sleep at night. Of course, you have to work to assure that it is possible.
This article goes into great detail about the “hardening” of the home. What’s interesting is that in prepping we so often try to do things under the cover of night or with some OPSEC involved.
When it comes to adding security, locks, and other “hardeners” let it be known. Your improvements to the security of your home should be about securing the home but if you can send a message to the outside world as well then do so!
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
