72 Hour Kit is Essential for Any Emergency

Condoms for Survival?

11 Ways A Condom Can Save Your Life: Multi-functional survival uses for a CONDOM.

People have been packing them in mini survival kits for as long as I can remember – using them primarily as an expandable WATER CONTAINER.  Don’t worry, I’ll get into details later.  While a little taboo, I’ll ask that you set aside any preconceived notions you might have about condoms.  In this post, I’ll argue that as far as  multi-functional survival uses are concerned, the condom offers an incredible BANG for your buck.  Sorry – I couldn’t resist.

I’ll break down the many uses within each CORE SURVIVAL CATEGORY.

WATER

As I’ve mentioned, including condoms in survival kits is not a new idea.  They make amazing compact water containers that can hold as much as 2 liters of water if handled properly.  They are, after all, designed to be water tight.  The elasticity of latex condoms is SHOCKING. Continue reading

Survival Shelter

Survival Shelter

1. Everything can be broke, forced, overwhelmed

“Let them come, I will take down all of them”

Yep, eventually someone will come, and NO sometimes you can not take them down all. You need to accept fact that point of survival is to survive, not to die like hero in big gunfight. I prefer to be living sneaky person who is good at hiding, instead of dead brave hero.

No matter how much time and money you spent in making your shelter impenetrable, everything can be broken and taken, it is just matter of time and enough force. We are talking here about ordinary people who do not have ex. rocket launch silo for shelter.

2. Your shelter can not look different than anything that surrounds it

No matter what kind of shelter we are talking about, be sure that it looks like anything else around it. What that means? There is no sense of doing things to your house in order to make it more secure and then to look very different from other houses in your neighborhood. Continue reading

    PUTTING TOGETHER YOUR OWN URBAN SURVIVAL KIT

    25 Dec

    Odds are, if things ever get hairy, most of us will be in some sort of urban environment. As such, would it not make sense to build a survival kit ideally adapted to this environment?

    An urban survival kit should be geared towards scenarios city-dwellers would most likely run into in an

    SCAVENGING FOR FOOD AND SUPPLIES IN A POST-APOCALYPTIC WASTELAND

    25 Dec

    Here is a guide to scavenging for food and supplies during a disaster. Most of the ideas stem from me wondering what I would do during a zombie apocalypse, but as we’ve seen lately in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, these are skills that could benefit anyone, even in the most developed of the developed world.

    I will talk about the tools that are needed, as well as a step-by-step guide to where and how to scavenge.
