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.

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.

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 […]

Survival Wilderness Cooking

Survival Wilderness Cooking

I wanted to highlight a couple of videos I stumbled upon today. This one demonstrates the use of a large flat rock as a cooking surface. In this video I wanted to highlight how he managed to use the log as a stand for his cooking surface and a heat source. I have seen pre made cooking logs in some grocery stores near popular camping / hiking spots. But you can also create them yourself with some careful knife work and a fire starter.
