If you have doubts about the American economy and the American dollar you should be looking into silver and gold investment. The other thing that many preppers and survivalists neglect to tell you is the beauty and the fun of silver investment.

What is Junk Silver
Junk silver is a coin that is valued for its silver content more than its actual value. Pre 1965 dimes are a great example because they are 90% silver. This means those coins are worth 10 cents in the eyes of the average person. However, the value of silver is worth more.

You might be wondering why to buy silver over gold. There are a number of reasons for this.

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.
