25 Survival Skills Everyone Needs

25 Survival Skills Everyone Needs

In our fast-paced technologically-centered modern world, many adults have never learned some of the basic skills need for self-sufficiency or survival. We’ve complied a list of some of the crucial skills everyone should know, for day-to-day life, homesteading, or SHTF. How to change a tire: seems basic, but many people, especially women, don’t know how to do this. But in many scenarios in life, and definitely when SHTF, AAA might not be reachable. How to hand-wash laundry: it’s harder than it looks! How to start a fire: probably the #1 survival skill, everyone should know how to do this Plant recognition: it’s always useful to know […]

3 Situational Awareness Tips That Could Save Your Life

3 Situational Awareness Tips That Could Save Your Life

Good situational awareness can save your life in a number of ways. It could mean being aware of where you place your feet as you walk through the woods, avoiding stepping on or near a venomous snake. It could also mean recognizing the signs that someone intends to do you harm and reacting before they get the chance. Take a little bit of time every day to improve your situational awareness, and your chances of survival in any situation will increase dramatically. Be Aware of Your Surroundings Instead of getting caught up in a fireworks show or wandering aimlessly through […]

Top 10 Doomsday Survival Considerations

Top 10 Doomsday Survival Considerations

I really liked this top 10 list I came across about the top survival considerations. It is a concise list that focuses on the key elements of being prepared… A mantra in the prepping community on survival is the rule of three: you can survive three minutes without air, three days without water, and three weeks without food. Those are the top three considerations for survival; however, to expand this concept we can illustrate the rule of ten (the top ten considerations for surviving doomdsay). Rule of Ten: Top Ten Considerations for Surviving Doomsday The list of ten areas to […]

DIY Garden Markers

DIY Garden Markers

Growing your own garden is a key part of making your home more self-sustaining. One of the biggest mistakes that first-time gardeners make is not labeling their plants with garden markers. While some plants are easy to identify, others, especially herbs, or plants that grow underground, can be slightly difficult to identify right away. If you want to make harvesting much easier, it’s easy to make a few simple garden markers with supplies that you probably have in your home already. Painted rocks are a great, semi-permanent solution that can be used for as long as the paint withstands the […]

Non-GMO Foods for Your Emergency Pantry

Non-GMO Foods for Your Emergency Pantry

Stockpiling an emergency pantry is a process that many homesteaders and self-reliant homeowners consider an essential part of providing for their families. There are many reasons why an emergency pantry might be necessary, even beyond being prepared for worst-case scenarios. But one of the downfalls of having a stock of emergency staples is that the types of foods that stay preserved well are often loaded with unhealthy artificial ingredients and GMOs. There are ways to fill your pantry with whole, organic, non-GMO foods that will last for months or years. It may take a bit more work, but the trade […]

Brilliant Bug-Out-Bag Packing

Brilliant Bug-Out-Bag Packing

I wanted to highlight these bug out bag packing techniques from gray wolf survival. They do a good job of coving things that would otherwise be looked over. Let us know what you think in the comments below. 1 Don’t pack more than what you’ll need. When you’ve made your list of what you need, go through it and start getting rid of things. A bob bag should hold essentials, not your whole life. You won’t be able to carry 80 pounds of gear very far, and even if you do, you won’t be very fast. Make your list, then […]

Top 3 Plants For Your Survival Garden

Top 3 Plants For Your Survival Garden

Survival gardening is the process of creating a garden that could, if it needed to, become your main source of food. In some cases, homesteaders have created gardens that could be their only source of food for at least a season, if not longer. This kind of self-sufficient gardening takes a lot of careful planning and hard work, but it’s not impossible. One of the keys to success in survival gardening is choosing the right plants. In a survival garden, you’ll need high-yield plants that offer the human body a variety of nutrients and plenty of calories. Here are the […]

Starting A Fire In Terrible Conditions

Starting A Fire In Terrible Conditions

It’s an ironic twist of life that the situations where you most need a fire for heat and light are often the situations in which it’s hardest to start one. When the weather is wet, windy, cold, icy, or just downright miserable, fire doesn’t like to cooperate. But in these situations, staying warm and getting some hot food or liquid in your body is often a matter of survival. Here are a few tips for getting your fire going in bad weather. The driest part of available kindling with be at the heart of logs, not the smaller dead twigs […]

Foraging For Beginngers

Foraging For Beginngers

Did you know that the first grocery store only opened its doors 100 years ago? Before then, people bought their food largely from local producers, or they hunted, grew, or found their own. Many people today are getting back to hunting and growing large portions of their food stores, but the practice of foraging hasn’t gained the same kind of popularity. This is a shame, because knowing how to forage for food is not only an essential wilderness survival skill, it’s also a great way to supplement your family’s diet with organic food. Identifying edible wild food is easily done […]

Moving Quietly In Any Enviroment

Moving Quietly In Any Enviroment

One of the key skills to surviving in the wilderness is to ensure that you never come into contact with predators. The less you must face a predator, the better your chances of survival. In addition to keeping a vigilant watch out, you should also learn how to move through any environment as silently as possible. Here are some tips for learning to walk without raising any alarms. First, be sure that you control your breathing evenly. Holding your breath will only result in an eventual exhale that could be very loud. Breathe calmly and slowly through your nose to […]

Your Body’s Needs

Your Body’s Needs

When you begin creating a Bug Out Bag or an emergency pantry stocked with food and water, one of the first things that you will probably be asking is: just how much food and water does one person truly need in a survival situation? While it’s temping to just estimate based on what you consume in your daily life now, realize that comfortable portion sizes to make you feel satiated are not even close to a reflection of what you absolutely have to have in order to stay alive. There’s an old adage that says a person can survive three […]

Outdoor Navigation Basics

Outdoor Navigation Basics

Learning to navigate in the wild, without the aid of signs, landmarks, and roadways, is a challenge that many survivalists have to overcome before they feel comfortable heading out to practice their survival skills. It’s important to understand how to use some basic tools when it comes to outdoor navigation. Even if you have a GPS that never fails, you should always be prepared with a low-tech backup, just in case. A map and a compass are probably the two most basic tools for outdoor navigation that survivalists can rely on. While using these tools isn’t as simple as television […]

DIY Water Filter

DIY Water Filter

There may come a time in a survival situation when you don’t have access to clean water, you’ve run out of water filtration tablets, and you don’t have any other means of ensuring that your drinking water is safe. Even clear, running water can be filled with bacteria that can quickly make you extremely sick, so it’s never a good idea to just guess. Here’s an easy way to create a water filtration system with what you can find in the wild, that will remove as much harmful bacteria as possible. Begin with a water bottle, sports drink bottle, or […]

Double Duty Bug Out Gear

Double Duty Bug Out Gear

When building your Bug Out Bag, one of the biggest concerns is weight. In addition to reducing weight by removing items or choosing lighter versions of items, one of the best things that you can possibly do for your survival is to choose bug out gear that performs two, three, or more duties. Any time you can choose a tool with multiple uses, over a variety of tools that each perform only one duty, you are saving yourself space, weight, and probably money. Small personal tools are often the best place to start looking for double-duty replacements. Get rid of […]
