Survival Skills # 33 How to Make a Bug-Out Plan

We all need a bug-out plan, this plan will give us multiple routes from our home or place of work and yes you need a bug-out plan from your place of work. With bug-out plans in place and bug-out bags ready to grab and go and your retreat or backup place to bug-out to you will increase you survivability. Your retreat should have back-up supplies and be ready to go when you get there or only take a short time to get up and running.

Bug-Out Plan

#1 Sit down with maps of your area and map out four or five routes from your house and place of work.

#2 Get into your car/truck and drive the routes. Stop from time to time and make notes about your route. Things you may put into your notes would be stores you will go by and places you may want to avoid if things get very bad, but if you are bugging out then it must be bad already.

#3 Next you need to walk your routes and look for short cuts. You must remember that being a survivalist means you plan ahead for as many things as you can. And you may not get to bug-out with your car/truck you may have to walk your route so you need to know the routes that have the shortest walk time and has the good short cuts. You do need to remember that your safety is top priority. Use a camera to take photos of things of importance.

#4 Plan ahead on your routes. Take your top two routes, the ones you think you will take incase of an event of doom and place a cache along the route. You may want you place food, water, ammo or other items in your cache. Having a cache or two may save your life! And remember you can place a cache on each of your routes. You can always go and get them later. Just remember to hide them well and know how to get to them; maps are great and a GPS is to but a EMP will make your GPS a paper weight, so have a back up if you use a GPS to mark your caches.

#5 Keep your mouth shut about your routes. You and your family are the only ones to know your routes. And I would only tell the family the need to know items or info. The less other people know about your routes the better off you are. The best friends you have known for 15 years down the street. The ones who would never hurt anyone and so full of love. Well when there kids are starving and they know you have food and water. They may change into someone you don’t want to see or ever meet. I think that the less we talk about our plans and food stores the better we are.

#6 Keep you car/truck up and running. Do regular maintenance and keep extra parts to have on hand. It would be very bad if a great event of doom hit and your car/truck spark plug wire is cut be a evil doer and because you don’t have one; now you are walking out and not driving out.

#7 Do check-ups on your plan. From time to time roads close and get blocked so you need to keep up on your routes and make needed changes. Plan to survive and survive to live.

Things You Will Need
a. Maps of your area
b. Folder to store your plan
c. Camera to take needed photos of things along your route, make a little flip book of your route
d. Items to use for your caches (5 gallon buckets, food, water and ammo)
e. Note book for all your notes
f. A little time each week to do this

Basic Disaster Supplies Kit

Earthquakes, floods, and other disasters can seriously disrupt normal life. Services may not be available, transportation may be cut off and roads may be blocked. In some cases, you may be forced to evacuate. Be ready to respond to any situation by assembling and maintaining a Disaster Supplies Kit.

Water
Plan on one gallon of water per person per day. Store water in plastic containers such as soft drink bottles. Avoid using containers that will decompose or break, such as mason jars or glass bottles. Use water for health. Store with OxyDrops please don’t use Clorox Bleach to store water.
Because water is so important to human survival, it should never be withheld. Drink at least two quarts per day, as long as supplies last, and look for alternative sources.

Food
Store at least a 7-14 days(A 30 day supply is better) of no-perishable food. Choose foods that require no refrigeration, cooking, or preparation and are compact and lightweight. If food must be cooked, include a few cans of Sterno and the small Sterno Stove you can get these at Wal-Mart or a camping store and cost less than $10. You will need to have a way to heat water and heat food so more than one way to cook is a must. Get a cheap camp stove and have lots of extra fuel.

WE ARE SURVIVALISTS

WE ARE SURVIVALISTS He who fails to prepare for the night, fails to prepare for the dawn. I am a survivalist and by nature a survivalist is an OPTIMIST. I do not have one pessimistic bone in my body. If what I just said sounds odd to you then you are not yet a survivalist and you do not understand the modern survivalist at all. It has been very difficult to communicate to the public and the mass communications media, the concept of an optimistic, hopeful survivalist. A fireman is a fireman, not because he believes everything will burn, but because he believes much can be saved. Doctors don't believe in death, they believe in life, and a survivalist is not a survivalist because he believes everything must be destroyed and everyone must die, he believes that life and freedom can be saved, if people of good will are prepared. A fireman does not start fires, a doctor does not make disease and a survivalist does not make disaster. Crime, disease, war, revolution, fire, flood, periodic financial collapse and famine are the results of nature and the nature of man and unfortunately are not within the power of anyone on this earth to prevent. We all know that the sun will set each day, leaving us in darkness and we all know that warm summers give way to cold winters and that we can do nothing to keep the sun from setting or the cold winds from coming, does this make us pessimistic? I think not! So then why is the survivalist called a pessimist when he makes ready to face events that are just as much part of history and nature as the sunset and changing of the seasons. Another misconception is that survivalists are predicting world disaster. On the contrary, we seem to be the OPTIMISTIC MINORITY that is predicting world survival. We are hard pressed to find any well recommended historians, economists, political scientists, sociologists or military strategists that can come up with a scenario that gives even a fifty-fifty chance of avoiding a large scale catastrophe, yet we survivalist dare to be OPTIMISTIC about the future. We survivalists do not need to predict the probability of disaster anymore than we need to predict the sun setting. Those who put down survivalists, are like men who refuse to look at a calendar, in the hope that through self-imposed ignorance they can keep from aging another year. "You survivalists will be disappointed if we don't have a world cataclysm", here is another accusation that is pure B.S. and I could not think of a milder phrase to describe it. We survivalists have loved ones we don't want to see hurt or killed, we have homes we don't want to see destroyed, we are not fools to think that just because we are survivalist a world cataclysm would be fun for us or the we would not experience danger, loss, hunger, injury, cold or even despair and death. We have spent time and money to improve our chances for survival and recovery from disaster, but we would have a great celebration if some day we could be assured that we had wasted our time. No, we will not be disappointed if there is no disaster to survive, anymore than the Red Cross is disappointed when there are no floods and storms or the man who buys an insurance policy is disappointed when his house fails to burn down. It may be said that the survivalist would much prefer the pleasant (but unlikely) surprise of being wrong to the (probable) deadly rude awakening that the non-survivalist will face if he is wrong. So, you see the survivalist can not lose because his survival preparations will be of value regardless of what the future has in store. In time of crisis, those who have not prepared to turn to each other, will turn on each other. It is most regrettable indeed, that many people consider survivalists as a threat and regard them with suspicion and even hostility. This attitude is logically indefensible and is rooted in the non-survivalists own sense of fear and guilt. Subconsciously, the non-survivalist may hate the survivalist for reminding him of how fragile his lifestyle is. Now, let's get the facts turned around right. THE MOST DANGEROUS PEOPLE IN AMERICA TODAY ARE THE NON-SURVIVALIST. Every person who has not made provisions for surviving without food, water, fuel and other essential needs from the outside, is a mortal danger to his neighbors. What will a man do when he and his family are freezing, hungry, thirsty, sick and starving? He may ask or beg his neighbors for help, but when they have no extra fuel, food, water or medicine to give, will he just go back home to die with his wife and kids? What do you think? We survivalists who stock up on food and other supplies, now do a favor to society because what we now buy is replaced on the shelves so there will be that much more available in an emergency. We survivalists won't be looting and killing for food. We won't be a burden on the medical facilities or a danger to the police. Since we will be able to turn to each other, we will not need to turn on anyone and we may be able to help at least some. Survival preparation should be regarded as a social obligation, one that every individual owes to his family and community and his nation. The non-survivalist is simply a poor and irresponsible citizen. So the reality is, that survivalists are optimistic, self-reliant individuals, who cannot help but see the imperative of preparing for the worst possible events, while hoping sincerely, that they won't happen. Today's survivalist is an asset to his community and to the world and should be proud to be called SURVIVALIST.

Survival and Self-Reliance 101




This is for you new guys and people who have never put a second thought into survival or self-reliance. You have entered into a big new world that with a little work will pay off 100 times what you put into in. Everyday you stock up on food, water and other supplies or learn a new skill that will help you survive you are one more day closer to security for you and your family. Being self-reliant is freedom from the Beast, and the Beast is the system of evil and greed that is our Government. When you take that first step into the world of survival you will start down a road that will ever change; let me explain. To start with you will have a hard time finding two survivalist that think just alike as far as how to and what to stock up on. Most will be very close to the same but every one of us has our on plan for survival. If you go into a survival chat room or forum and start a post with, “What gun is best for survival?” Let me say I think the best gun for survival is the gun you feel the best with and use well but in the forum or chat room you will get many different guns and the reason why it is the best for survival. I am a strong believer that survival is a personal thing and the only person who can prep for you is you yourself. Don’t get me wrong we all need outside input to help us on our way to becoming a survivalist. We all have skills and info to share and you will never stop learning when it comes to survival. With that said you will need to get off you ass and get out and use tools and survival gear to see what works and what doesn’t work. The funny thing is a great tool for me may be a heavy hunk of junk to you, but you will never know till you use it and test it. And you don’t have to go broke to test out tools or guns. If you have a gun range near you go there and rent a gun every time you go and find one that you love and you shoot well then buy that gun and use it and get better with it. Just about every gun range has a program to rent guns. And remember to talk to the old timers at the gun range. Those old timers have great info and maybe some pointers on shooting that will help you. I still go to the free classes they have at the gun store near me just to pick up a little extra info from time to time. Use your mind it is your first survival tool and most of the time is the best tool you have. Get out and try out your tools and try out your skills and get your supplies going. Do a web search for food storage and read my old post on survival skills I’m up to #32 and I will keep going for as long as I can come up with new info. Thanks for reading my Blog and get your ass in gear time is short. Start stocking up on food, water, medical supplies and household now! Take a little time today to stock up so when the evil comes you will have the food you need to live.

My Crazy Rant......Or Am I Crazy?

Well not much going on, just the same lies as always. The POTUS has declared a national emergency because of the H1N1 Flu and has yet to vaccinate his own daughters, Why is that? "President Obama’s school age daughters have not been vaccinated against the H1N1 flu virus. White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs says the vaccine is not available to them based on their risk. The Centers for Disease Control recommend that children ages 6 months through 18 years of age receive a vaccination against the H1N1 flu virus. At this time only children with chronic medical conditions are receiving the vaccination because their immune system is not strong enough to fight off the strain. The CDC also says a regular seasonal flu shot does not protect against the virus."
I will tell you why they didn't get the flu shot, because the flu shot is BAD for you! That is why they are pushing it on us. This is all a big plan to push this country into Martial Law. The sheeple of this country are being set up in a plan of evil of unbelievable proportions, but it is in place and running as I post this blog. The first part of this plan was to steal every dollar they could get and put this country as deep into debt as it could get. Then they are injecting us with poison to make us sick. So at this point they want us poor and to sick to fight. I know some of you may think this is crazy, but I don't. I think the leaders of this country are in league with evil.
My friends get your house in order and stock up on food,water,household items and medical supplies. Do it now while you still have time, because our time is short. Evil is coming.

Obama Declares Swine Flu A National Emergency

Well I can't say I didn't see this coming. First he declares a State of Emergency, and next he will invoke the power of FEMA. There are a lot of Executive orders that can be used to twist this whole National Emergency into a damn mess.

Here are just a few Executive Orders associated with FEMA that would suspend the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. These Executive Orders have been on record for nearly 30 years and could be enacted by the stroke of a Presidential pen:

* EXECUTIVE ORDER 10990 allows the government to take over all modes of transportation and control of highways and seaports.

* EXECUTIVE ORDER 10995 allows the government to seize and control the communication media.

* EXECUTIVE ORDER 10997 allows the government to take over all electrical power, gas, petroleum, fuels and minerals.

* EXECUTIVE ORDER 10998 allows the government to take over all food resources and farms.

* EXECUTIVE ORDER 11000 allows the government to mobilize civilians into work brigades under government supervision.

* EXECUTIVE ORDER 11001 allows the government to take over all health, education and welfare functions.

* EXECUTIVE ORDER 11002 designates the Postmaster General to operate a national registration of all persons.

* EXECUTIVE ORDER 11003 allows the government to take over all airports and aircraft, including commercial aircraft.

* EXECUTIVE ORDER 11004 allows the Housing and Finance Authority to relocate communities, build new housing with public funds, designate areas to be abandoned, and establish new locations for populations.

* EXECUTIVE ORDER 11005 allows the government to take over railroads, inland waterways and public storage facilities.

* EXECUTIVE ORDER 11051 specifies the responsibility of the Office of Emergency Planning and gives authorization to put all Executive Orders into effect in times of increased international tensions and economic or financial crisis.

* EXECUTIVE ORDER 11310 grants authority to the Department of Justice to enforce the plans set out in Executive Orders, to institute industrial support, to establish judicial and legislative liaison, to control all aliens, to operate penal and correctional institutions, and to advise and assist the President.

* EXECUTIVE ORDER 11049 assigns emergency preparedness function to federal departments and agencies, consolidating 21 operative Executive Orders issued over a fifteen year period.

* EXECUTIVE ORDER 11921 allows the Federal Emergency Preparedness Agency to develop plans to establish control over the mechanisms of production and distribution, of energy sources, wages, salaries, credit and the flow of money in U.S. financial institution in any undefined national emergency. It also provides that when a state of emergency is declared by the President, Congress cannot review the action for six months.

What will become of this National Emergency? How will this Government use this to mess with us?
Keep your eye's open and your hear to the ground because the NWO is coming. Get your house and your family ready, because time is short.

H1N1 Flu


I read and hear a lot of different info on the flu. I have talked to many different Doctors and got many different answers. Some say take just the seasonal flu shot but not the H1N1 or take both the seasonal flu and the H1N1. Other doctors say to stay clear of both and don't take any vaccine. I don't know if any of them really know what the truth is and if they do I don't think they are telling. So what do you do? I will not tell anyone what to do, you will have to make that decision yourself. I will tell you I will never take another vaccine in my life. I don't trust the miss info on the vaccine and I sure don't trust the Government. So what am I doing? I am taking natural immune boosters and natural flu fighters. Here is what I am taking
1500mg C
110mg Calcium
2000iu D-3
5000iu A
200iu E
57.5mg Zinc
15mcg Selenium
1mg Copper
1.5mg Manganese
950mg Elderberry
400mg Echinacea
1500mg Oil of Oregano
5 Drops of 30ppm Colloidal Silver

I think I will be adding some garlic pills to my mix, once I find the one I want I will post an up-date.
A storm is coming and the NWO is behind it, so get yourself and your family ready.

Survival Skills # 29 How to Build a Fire pit


How to Build a Fire pit

Is there anything more soothing than sitting around a fire on a cool night? Grownups and kids both love the appeal of an open fire. Whether toasting a marshmallow over the flames or just sipping a cup of coffee and watching the dancing flames, a fire pit is guaranteed to make everyone's world a better place. And after a SHTF event a fire pit will be a must. You will be able to cook, boil water, make coffee and as said lust sit back on a cool or cold night and enjoy. Here's how you can build a fire pit in your own yard.

Step 1
Choose a location for your fire pit that isn't close to trees, building or anything that could catch fire from a spark. A level location is best, but the design can accommodate a slight slope as well. Be sure there aren't any underground wires, cable or pipes in your chosen location.
Step 2
Drive a stake into the ground where you want to put the fire pit. Tie a piece of string to the stake and attach a stick or nail 1 1/2 or 2 feet away from the stake.
Step 3
Scribe a circle all around the stake and mark the line with spray paint.
Step 4
Remove the sod inside the circle and dig out the hole to a depth of about 1 foot (keep the sides as straight as possible). Then, in the center of your fire pit excavation, dig a hole about 6 or 8 inches square and 12 inches deep
Step 5
Scrape out the bottom of your hole and pour in about 4 inches of pea gravel (fill the hole in the center with the gravel as well). If your fire pit is on a slope you can level the bottom out by adding more pea gravel to one side. The pea gravel will help the fire pit drain and the hole in the center will act as a sump and improve the drainage
Step 6
Add about 3 inches of sand on top of the pea gravel - the sand will help prevent any fire from spreading to roots under your pit.
Step 7
Surround the fire pit with at least two rows of concrete pavers stacked on top of each other. Dry stack the pavers to make it easy to replace any that might break. Don't use adhesive to hold the pavers together, as it will melt and give off fumes that could be toxic.
Step 8
Find a metal grate that will fit over the total open hole of the fire pit. You can use this to cook on.
Step 9
Now just wait for evening, build the first fire in your own fire pit, and then sit back and enjoy.


Things you’ll need:
Stackable interlocking paving stones (12' x 12'), but fire proof brick is the best.
Stake with 2-foot string and a nail
Building sand
Pea or small aggregate gravel
Edger/square tip shovel
Rake

I Had A Lot To Do And Got A Lot Done.

This weekend I worked on my food stores. I looked over and counted every thing. My food supplies are 80% Mt. House #10 cans and the rest is 5 gallon buckets with dried foods. I moved some of my 5 gallon buckets to put all of them in one place. As of right now for me my wife and the one kid I have at home I'm sure we have a year or more worth of food, and this is not including my food I get from my fishing and our garden. I look at the fish and garden as the extra or my fall-back food. Plus I'm not including any hunting, which I can do and I do well. I'm no expert but I know my way around hunting and there are lots of good things to hunt near me. I do expect as the SHTF for food not just at the stores but the food we hunt to get gone very fast. Most people don't know how to fish or hunt, but the ones that do we be doing it and I would expect that this skill will be very useful in a post SHTF event. As I have said before barter will be the new money and skills and trade items will be how most will make a living.
My friends time is short so get yourself ready and stock up on as much as you can, because food, water and other supplies will be your life line.

Things We Must Do In The Last Days We Have Left.

#1) Buy as much food as you can. Caned food, dry food and things like salt, sugar, flour, oats and any other food needs that you can store.
#2) Buy as much water or store as much as you can. And remember that bleach will not work to store water, you must use Stabilized Oxygen like OxyDrops.
#3) Get you guns ready to use, that means clean, oil and have them ready to pick up and use. But please use you brain on this don't leave you guns out for young kids to get to.
#4) Buy as much ammo as you can find. You can even buy ammo you don't use and use it for trade.
#5) Buy back up items for you car or truck, like oil, wiper blades, parts that you know you will need. There will be a time when you will not be able to find this stuff.
#6) Buy medical supplies, all you can get.
#7) Get barter items, things that you know you can trade with like coffee, alcohol, beer(for the short run) and many other items. People will need there vices.
#8) Stand ready and look for the trigger that will start the end.

People Don't Care! And Time is Short!!!!


Last night at work I tried again to talk to some of the sheeple I work with, and let me tell you these are great people. But they don't want to hear about the dollar going down or the NWO coming to take you to the FEMA camps when you don't take the flu shot. I asked one person what would you do if the dollar went pop and was worth zero, that means you can't buy food or gas. What would you do? And she looked at me and said, "Obama will take care of us". Blood shoot of of my eye's. I then asked her how has Obama done so far as our leader? And she said,"GREAT!!!" (with big eye's). I don't know what to say any more and after last night I will not share any more info to anyone unless they come to me and ask me first. I can't deal with the dead head sheeple any more, they want to talk about going on that big family trip in June of next year. I see it all now the sheeple can't look at the truth because the truth is so bad and they just can't handle it. Why would they want to admit to a collapse of the dollar and the end of this country when this will change there family trip plans?
My friends the time is as short as it can be. Get your last needed items and stand watch. Because the NWO is coming and the 98% of the people of this country don't even want to think about it much less get ready for it.
Keep you eye's open and your hear to the ground. Time is short!!!!

The Dollar Is Dying What Should I Do?


The Dollar Is Dying What Should I Do?


The economy is on a down hill slide, and we are getting close to the end. The dollar is dying or close to dead. Gold and silver are going up everyday because the dollar is dying, so what should we do? If you have the money buy gold and silver, but I would not go all out because as good as gold and silver are you can’t eat them. As of right now I would buy food, water, medical supplies and household goods. Stock up on as much food and water as you can get. Our time is almost up. The Government will pump up the dollar for as long as they can but at some point it will pop. And when it pops you don’t want to be on the side lines with money that has no value and no food or water. I think bartering will be the countries new money. If you have skills or items to use to barter you will have a shot at making a go at it. The sheeple will do as I have always thought they would do and that is freak out and run around like a chicken with it’s head cut off. So when the big pop happens be ready with your own food, water and other supplies. Stand your ground and keep what is yours. This is the time to ready yourselves. Get you guns in battle readiness and ready to protect your family. The time has come to stand guard. Keep your eye’s open and your ear to the ground, because the New World Order is coming and they never sleep.

Survival Skills # 28 How to Barter Goods and Services


Survival Skills # 28
How to Barter Goods and Services


Step 1
Figure out what goods or services you might have to trade. Even things you take for granted, others may want. Are you good at fixing cars? Do you have a lot of old books lying around? Find something to offer to others.
Step 2
Research what you've decided to offer for barter to find the monetary value. Monetary value is extremely important in bartering so that each party gets a fair deal. Do not inflate the value of your goods or services, or no one will want to barter with you. The old books you have lying around are not the value of the same number of brand-new books.
Step 3
Find others to barter goods and services with. Craigslist has an excellent area for barter with local people and businesses. SwapAce.com is another good, international bartering site. When listing your goods or services for barter, be sure to be specific so that all parties involved have a clear understanding of what is being traded.
Step 4
Barter. Don't be afraid to ask to trade. You never know what someone may want in exchange for something else. It never hurts to ask, as long as you are respectful and are fully aware of the monetary value of both items or services up for barter. If you are unsure what the other party considers the monetary value for the goods or services they have for barter, ask. Don't be insulting- usually in bartering, insults come from ignorance of the monetary value of what is to be traded.
Step 5
Make a list of items you have to trade and make a list of items you need. Start to look for your items in the paper, on-line and talk to people.

Things You'll Need:
Goods or services to trade
Goods or services wanted
Internet connection
Network of People

Survival Skills # 27 The 7 Mistakes of Food Storage

The 7 Mistakes of Food Storage
By Vicki Tate


If you are going to store food, make sure that the food you store is adequate for the need you and your family anticipate. This may not be as easy as to achieve as many people think, because the facts are that most people make serious errors when storing food—errors that will come back to haunt them when the food they’ve stored is the only thing that stands between them and their empty, dissatisfied, bellies.

There are seven common mistakes people make when storing food. They are:


1. Variety
Most people don’t have enough variety in their storage. 95% of the people I’ve worked with have only stored four basic items: wheat, milk, honey, and salt. Statistics show most of us won’t survive on such a diet for several reasons. a) Many people are allergic to wheat and may not be aware of it until they are eating it meal after meal. b) Wheat is too harsh for young children. They can tolerate it in small amounts but not as their main staple. c) We get tired of eating the same foods over and over and many times prefer to not eat, than to sample that particular food again. This is called appetite fatigue. Young children and older people are particularly susceptible to it. Store less wheat than is generally suggested and put the difference into a variety of other grains, particularly ones your family likes to eat. Also store a variety of beans, as this will add color, texture, and flavor. Variety is the key to a successful storage program. It is essential that you store flavorings such as tomato, bouillon, cheese, and onion.
Also, include a good supply of the spices you like to cook with. These flavorings and spices allow you to do many creative things with your grains and beans. Without them you are severely limited. One of the best suggestions I can give you is buy a good food storage cookbook, go through it, and see what your family would really eat. Notice the ingredients as you do it. This will help you more than anything else to know what items to store.

2. Extended staples
Never put all your eggs in one basket. Store dehydrated and/or freeze dried foods as well as home canned and “store bought” canned goods. Make sure you add cooking oil, shortening, baking powder, soda, yeast, and powdered eggs. You can’t cook even the most basic recipes without these items.

3. Vitamins
Vitamins are important, especially if you have children, since children do not store body reserves of nutrients as adults do. A good quality multi-vitamin and vitamin C are the most vital. Others might be added as your budget permits.

4. Quick and easy and “psychological foods”Quick and easy foods help you through times when you are psychologically or physically unable to prepare your basic storage items. “No cook” foods such as freeze-dried are wonderful since they require little preparation, MREs (Meal Ready to Eat), such as many preparedness outlets carry, canned goods, etc. are also very good. “Psychological foods” are the goodies—Jello, pudding, candy, etc.—you should add to your storage. These may sound frivolous, but through the years I've talked with many people who have lived entirely on their storage for extended periods of time. Nearly all of them say these were the most helpful items in their storage to “normalize” their situations and make it more bearable. These are especially important if you have children.

5. Balance
Time and time again I’ve seen families buy all of their wheat, then buy all of another item and so on. Don’t do that. It’s important to keep well-balanced as you build your storage. Buy several items, rather than a large quantity of one item. If something happens and you have to live on your present storage, you’ll fare much better having a one month supply of a variety of items than a year’s supply of two or three items.

6. Containers
Always store your bulk foods in food storage containers. I have seen literally tons and tons of food thrown away because they were left in sacks, where they became highly susceptible to moisture, insects, and rodents. If you are using plastic buckets make sure they are lined with a food grade plastic liner available from companies that carry packaging supplies. Never use trash can liners as these are treated with pesticides. Don’t stack them too high. In an earthquake they may topple, the lids pop open, or they may crack. A better container is the #10 tin can which most preparedness companies use when they package their foods.

7. Use your storage
In all the years I’ve worked with preparedness one of the biggest problems I’ve seen is people storing food and not knowing what to do with it. It’s vital that you and your family become familiar with the things you are storing. You need to know how to prepare these foods. This is not something you want to have to learn under stress. Your family needs to be used to eating these foods. A stressful period is not a good time to totally change your diet. Get a good food storage cookbook and learn to use these foods! It’s better to find out the mistakes you’ll make now while there’s still time to make corrections.
It’s easy to take basic food storage and add the essentials that make it tasty, and it needs to be done. As I did the research for my cookbook, Cooking with Home Storage, I wanted to include recipes that gave help to families no matter what they had stored. As I put the material together it was fascinating to discover what the pioneers ate compared to the types of things we store. If you have stored only the basics, there’s very little you can do with it. By adding even just a few things, it greatly increases your options, and the prospect of your family surviving on it. As I studied how the pioneers lived and ate, my whole feeling for food storage changed. I realized our storage is what most of the world has always lived on. If it’s put together the right way we are returning to good basic food with a few goodies thrown in.

Survival Skills # 26 How To Can Butter


1. Use any butter that is on sale. Lesser quality butter requires more shaking (see #5 below), but the results are the same as with the expensive brands.


2. Heat pint jars in a 250 degree oven for 20 minutes, without rings or seals. One pound of butter slightly more than fills one pint jar, so if you melt 11 pounds of butter, heat 12 pint jars. A roasting pan works well for holding the pint jars while in the oven.

3. While the jars are heating, melt butter slowly until it comes to a slow boil. Using a large spatula, stir the bottom of the pot often to keep the butter from scorching. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes at least: a good simmer time will lessen the amount of shaking required (see #5 below). Place the lids in a small pot and bring to a boil, leaving the lids in simmering water until needed.


4. Stirring the melted butter from the bottom to the top with a soup ladle or small pot with a handle, pour the melted butter carefully into heated jars through a canning jar funnel. Leave 3/4" of head space in the jar, which allows room for the shaking process.


5. Carefully wipe off the top of the jars, then get a hot lid from the simmering water, add the lid and ring and tighten securely. Lids will seal as they cool. Once a few lids "ping," shake while the jars are still warm, but cool enough to handle easily, because the butter will separate and become foamy on top and white on the bottom. In a few minutes, shake again, and repeat until the butter retains the same consistency throughout the jar.


6. At this point, while still slightly warm, put the jars into a refrigerator. While cooling and hardening, shake again, and the melted butter will then look like butter and become firm. This final shaking is very important! Check every 5 minutes and give the jars a little shake until they are hardened in the jar! Leave in the refrigerator for an hour.


7. Canned butter should store for 3 years or longer on a cool, dark shelf. [It does last a long time. We have just used up the last of the butter we canned in 1999, and it was fine after 5 years.] Canned butter does not "melt" again when opened, so it does not need to be refrigerated upon opening, provided it is used within a reasonable length of time.

Preparing For Civil Unrest When The SHTF


I have been thinking off and on about when the event hits(SHTF) what will be the reaction from the sheep of this country? How will they act? I think most will run amok and just freak out. As I have said before I only know two or three people that are prepping like me. Then I know three or four that talk about it and may do a little prepping but not enough to feed there family for more than two weeks. I think most of you know we will be in a mess for more than two weeks. I have put a link here to a great article By Claire Wolfe on "Preparing For Civil Unrest" read it and get yourself ready for the event of doom. There is a storm coming a storm like none other seen before, so stand ready. Keep your eye's open and your powder dry, because the NWO is coming and they never sleep.

Survival Skills # 25 How To Use A FoodSaver


How To Use A FoodSaver

There are a lot of different vacuum Sealers. If you shop at Wal-Mart you will see FoodSaver and a off brand I think it's made by Black and Decker. But let me stop you right here; DON'T BUY A OFF BRAND!!!! Get a FoodSaver and use real FoodSaver bags. I have used the off brands and they just don't work as well as the real deal. So with that said what you will need is the FoodSaver that comes with the jar sealer, this little item will let you use mason jars to store dry foods. If you don't get the kit with the jar sealer then go on line and order one it is a great little item. I use the jar sealer with mason jars to store potato flakes(Mashed potato's), beans,rice and other dry goods.
We you start to use your FoodSaver we will ask yourself how did I live without this?

What I do is go to Sam's or Wal-Mart and buy dry goods in bulk, like sugar, salt, flour,rice,beans, and other dry goods. I have 5 gallon buckets with lids. So I separate the items into small bags, like 1/2 or 1/4 lbs per bag and use the foodsaver to seal the items then I pack 5 gallon bucket with an item. The last time I did this I bagged a 25lbs of sugar and 25lbs of salt. I mark each bucket with the date it was done and the item that is in it. You can do this with most dry items. The foodsaver will give you 5X the shelf life for your foods. So salt is good for 10 years the foodsaver will give you 50 years of good salt, just remember your food needs to be in a cool dry place in your home. Never put stored food outside the home in a shed, shop or any other place where heat and very cold will get to the food. Make a place in your home and rotate your stock.

The FoodSaver is a great little survival item. You can vacuum seal medications to store and items to put into your BOB. I even have important papers put into a bag to have in my BOB. Use you imagination and you will have fun and store your goods for the event of doom that is coming.

Here is the web site for foodsaver http://www.foodsaver.com/Category.aspx?id=a
Don't just buy from this site look at E-Bay and shop for the best price.

Keep your eye's open and your powder dry, because the NWO is coming and they never sleep!!!!

Not much to talk about today..

I did my reading and checked all my web sites today, just a lot of the same. The H1N1 is still big news, I will not be getting the flu shot and none of my family will get one. I see that the nose mist has live flu in it and I think it's crazy. I just shake my head now days because everyday i see some new news that is as crazy as hell, then the next day I get the next crazy story and all I can do is shake my head. You would think there is some crazy sit-com writer making a script for us to read about the government and our dumb-ass leaders, but the sad thing is as you wait for someone to say "HaHa this is all a big joke". You know it will never come because this nightmare we are in is very real and will only end when we hit the wall at 200mph. We all need to pray for this country and for each other, this at our time of greatest need prayer is needed.
Keep your eye's open and your powder dry, because the NWO is coming, and God help us when there plan is 100%.

Why Should I Can?


Why Should I Can?

Fresh Preserving provides a number of great benefits which are relevant to today’s lifestyles. While home canning has been around for generations, the reasons why people can today are different than the reasons why people canned products years ago.


Gardening and home canning can lower your grocery bill. Burpee Seed Company (www.burpee.com) estimates that for every $50 spent on seeds and fertilizer, a gardener can yield $1250 worth of produce. As it’s not feasible for a family to enjoy all of that fresh produce all at one time, home canning allows you to preserve that fresh, home grown flavor from your garden for use all year long, and saving on your grocery bill.


Home canning supports sustainable lifestyles. Canning locally-grown produce reduces the carbon footprint created by transporting vegetables around the world in off-seasons. A study by Carnegie Mellon found that 11% of the average American’s household food-related greenhouse gas emissions come from the transportation of foods. You can reduce that by growing your own produce or purchasing it locally, and then fresh preserving the harvest and re-using Ball® Jars year after year.


Fresh preserving allows you to manage your family’s nutrition. Many canning enthusiasts enjoy the versatility and control they have with fresh preserving recipes. When you fresh preserve foods, you can avoid additives and preservatives found in many commercial products, and you may even opt to use organic ingredients.


According to research from The National Gardening Association, 48% of consumers’ garden to ensure their food is safe. Canning is a perfect way to manage the ingredients in your recipes to ensure that your family not only gets the garden fresh flavor of fresh produce, but that they also avoid any undesired ingredients.

Long Weekend.....

Well this weekend was a long one. I got about 25% of the things done that I had on my list, but I did get two extra things done so I will say I was about 75% productive over all. I do have two days off this week so I will make up my slack then. One of the big things I got done this weekend was cleaning up my shop. Now I will be able to do more stuff and faster, it sure make things go better when you can get to what you need without moving ten other things to get to it. All my tools are beck where then need to be and I even put together my new table-saw. So with the shop ready the rest of this week in my free time I will be working on the little jobs I have been putting off. I know time is getting short so I have kicked it into high gear with the preps. I got some more ammo Sunday at my Wal-Mart, it's very hard to find now in CA. Shotgun ammo is the only thing you can still get with no trouble, it's very hard to find 22lr, 9mm, 40cal, 38spl, and 45's. Every time I see 22lr ammo I buy as much as I can. At the Wal-Marts here you can only buy 6 items per person per day, but at the two stores I go to I know two or three of the people that work there and have been able to buy more at times. As all ways keep your eye's open and your powder dry, because the NWO is coming and they never sleep.

What do you think?

The group of people in Washington D.C. that run this country said a week or so ago that the bad times are over we had hit the bottom and are on a rebound. But as of the 1st of October we are at 9.8% unemployment rate. Employers slashed another 263,000 jobs in September. And most employers are cutting hours of full-time and part-time workers. I don't see how things are getting better, if more and more people are getting laid off and more and more are having there hours cut.There are not enough jobs: A bill that would provide another 13 weeks of federally funded unemployment benefits to hard-hit states sailed through the House last week but may be complicated by some senators' efforts to get benefit extensions for all states. In some states, eligible workers have already received as many as 79 weeks of benefits. Historically, spells of unemployment that lasted a year or more are very rare. These trends are the sorts that haven't been seen since the Great Depression. Indeed, the number of workers who have been unemployed for 27 weeks or more called "long-term unemployed",rose by 450,000, to 5.4 million. Last month, 36% of the unemployed had been out of work for at least six months. The unemployed face a market in which job seekers outnumber job openings by a ratio of 6:1.
We are at a pivotal moment for this country I feel that our time has come and this country is doomed to fail. If you don't have food and other supplies put back, please start now. Everyday you waste is a day gone forever. Start a plan to buy food, water and other household items you will need and buy everything you can afford. We are in the first stage of a Great Depression and I think things will only get worse from here on. Get your house in order and GET READY.

Keep your eye's open and your powder dry, because the NWO is coming and as I have said before they never sleep!!!

Legislation Still Under the Radar Would Devastate U.S. Gun Ownership Rights


Legislation Still Under the Radar Would Devastate U.S. Gun Ownership Rights
From infowars.com

Personal Liberty Digest
October 2, 2009

And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.–President Barack Obama in San Francisco at a 2008 fundraiser.

While high profile issues like passage of a healthcare reform bill and cap and trade energy tax are getting front page headlines and top billing by television talking heads, be very wary of stealth legislation slowly working its way through Congress to restrict gun ownership.

Passage of either of two bills, HR 45 (also known as Blair-Holt Firearm Licensing and Record Sale Act of 2009) and S 1317, would be a devastating blow to Second Amendment rights.

HR 45, introduced by Rep. Bobby Rush, would make it illegal to own a gun unless you are fingerprinted and can provide a driver’s license and Social Security number.

Additionally under HR 45, a person buying a gun would have to undergo both a physical and mental evaluation before making a firearm purchase. It also would require guns be secured from access by children under age 18, and would empower law enforcement officers to come into your home to check compliance.

S 1317, introduced by Sen. Frank Lautenburg, would give the attorney general the right to block gun sales to people on terror watch lists. A third bill, HR 2647, contains a companion clause to S 1317 that gives the attorney general the authority to determine who belongs on terrorist watch lists.

And who are the terrorists? In Obamaworld it’s not the Islamo-fascists flying airliners into buildings, planting improvised explosive devices (IEDs) or strapping bombs to their waists and setting them off in crowded areas.

No, because in Obamaworld, the word terrorism no longer applies to those who were once called terrorists. And those who used to be considered terrorists no longer commit acts of terrorism. No they commit man-caused disasters. The word terrorist, at least in its past usage, has been dropped from the lexicon.

Today’s terrorists, according to those now in power in the United States, are people in flyover country who believe the Constitution is sacrosanct, and that the Second Amendment actually means that people are free to own guns without restriction.

•Our own country’s Department of Homeland Security issued an assessment earlier this year warning law enforcement of a possible rise in home-grown terrorism from “right wing extremists.” And who are those rightwing extremists? The assessment tell us: “Rightwing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.”

As we’ve reported before in related stories here and here the current administration is no friend to gun owners.

And what does Eric Holder—attorney general for the United States and the person who would under S 1317 be granted the authority to determine who belongs on terrorist watch groups—think about guns?

Following are few of his quotes that have appeared in various newspapers over the last few years:

* “As President Obama indicated during the campaign, there are just a few gun-related changes that we would like to make, and among them would be to reinstitute the ban on the sale of assault weapons.”

* “The second amendment does not protect firearms possession or use that is unrelated to participation in a well-regulated militia.”

* “To further strengthen the ability of law enforcement officials to track those suspected of terrorism or other criminal acts in this country, Congress should also pass legislation that would give the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms a record of every firearm sale.”

Holder’s boss, the president, is equally unfriendly to gun owners. Writing for Gun Digest last October, gun lobbyist Richard A. Pearson called Obama an enemy of the law abiding firearm owner. You can read his article here.

Some of Obama’s own quotes, as they have appeared in various publications, will back this up:

* “I am consistently on record and will continue to be on record as opposing concealed carry.”

* “I am not in favor of concealed weapons. I think that creates a potential atmosphere where more innocent people could (get shot during) altercations.”

* “The package (legislation passed in the Illinois Senate) closes the Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) card loopholes which resulted in the shooting out in Melrose Park. We’re eliminating 17 specific assault weapons. There is no reason why anybody should need an assault weapon to protect themselves or their family. We’re limiting handgun sales to one a month. We’re calling for handgun registration. It’s very hard right now to track whether or not a felon has turned in his weapons or if he has a FOID card because we don’t know how many weapons he has purchased.”

Without a doubt, the current administration is the most anti-gun administration in our nation’s history. Don’t let the hullabaloo over healthcare and cap and trade cause you to let your guard down.

And be sure you cling to your guns and religion. They may soon be all you have.

Could The Flu Be The Trigger?


Could the flu be the start of this whole thing? Let's look at just a few things about the flu and Mandatory vaccinations.
1) This would be a great way to push new laws on us (for our on good) like Mandatory vaccinations, home searches without a warrant and forced quarantine for those who resist.

2) This event sets up a nice little outline for martial law, they set in motion a plan the give everyone the shot. If you take it your "screwed", and if you don't take it your "screwed big time" because not taking the shot will give them the right to quarantine you, Can you say FEMA CAMP!

3) I think the plan is to fake a big outbreak to put the fear of death into the good little sheep and then start giving the shots to everyone they can. You will see flu shots every place you go. As of now Malls, Drug Stores, Grocery Stores and many other places are giving the shot and most of the time with some perks like free stuff and nice percent off your purchase. This is the biggest push for the flu shot I have ever seen. WHY? Why this flu?

4)Once this event is set in motion you will see Police and military on the streets with check points and road blocks to see who has had there shot. If you don't then you will have to take the shot right there or go to quarantine(FEMA CAMP)

Here is the change Obama was talking about, he has turned this Country into a mess.

Keep your eye's open and your powder dry, because the NWO is coming and as I've said they never sleep.
