    Prepper's Everyday Carry List.

  • Best protein source for preppers. Preppers often
    stockpile ample supplies of rice and beans, but their meat
    food storage is lacking. You'd be surprised at the kinds of
    meat available in a can that our grocery store doesn't
    stock. Take for example, ground beef in a can or canned
    bacon, which are foods you could easily use in your pantry.
    Meats are the best protein source in a can.

  • Fight or Flight response. It's a basic instinct for both man
    and animal: the instant a being realizes that danger is
    imminent, there is a "flight or fight" decision to make. It's

    is "bugging in" and fleeing is "bugging out." Will you know

    toothpaste. The Big Berkey water filtration system filters
    fluoride in your everyday water and can filter raw water for

  • Bugout by bike and be happy. If you must travel for work,
    you may be concerned about how to get back following a
    cyber attack or EMP. Travelling by car you can carry a
    bugout bike. By airplane you can ensure you have enough
    cash to buy yourself a bike to get back home. Here's more
    on picking the right bicycle equipment to survive.

    food is important as you will have to balance goals of
    weight efficiency with goals of energy and morale, nutrition
    and dietary needs, as well as personal taste. Here are

  • Preppers are the butchers, the bakers and the
    candlestick makers. Have candles for survival? There's no
    better time than now to become a candlemaker!

  • Flick your BIC lighter. Mykel Hawke brings a BIC -- it's a
    favorite survival tool. A survivor of the Bosnian war found
    BIC lighters to be more valuable than a generator, and we
    agree. See our wholesale source of BIC lighters.

  • Nuclear crisis. Fukushima, Chernobyl, Three Mile Island.
    Nuclear crisis happens and perhaps your neighborhood is
    next. Find out if you live near a nuclear power plant and
    how you can protect yourself against radiation from man-
    made or natural disasters.




  • Pretty Little Prepper Lies! Whether lies are secretive,
    boastful or come from the misinformed, preppers need to
    be aware and to take a measure of caution before
    accepting prepping ideas and misinformation. Don't
    succumb to the pretty little lies from other survivalists,
    FEMA, the U.S. Federal Drug Administration, or the Centers
    for Disease Control either.



  • You've got 100 gallons of water storage in your
    bathtub.  When you have a waterBOB, the water
    containment system pictured right, you can hold up to 100
    gallons of fresh drinking water in virtually any bathtub in
    the event of an emergency. The waterBOB keeps water
    fresh and clean for drinking, cooking, washing and flushing
    when you know water will be in short supply. Water stored
    in an open bathtub, with dirt, soap film and exposure to
    debris will spoil and become useless. A hurricane, tropical
    storm, flood or storm surge can interrupt or even
    contaminate your water supply. It is during these
    conditions the waterBOB may be used for temporary water
    storage.

  • Wake up and smell the coffee!  


  • Got natural antibiotics? Here are 19+ natural antibiotic
    alternatives. Take a closer look at the available natural
    antibiotics. Prescription antibiotics may not be available
    when you need them most, so you'll need alternatives.  
    Natural antibiotics can be your first line of defense (before
    going to the doctor for antibiotic drugs).  Natural
    antibiotics can help you with sinus infections and colds,
    sore throats, urinary tract infections and ordinary cuts and
    scrapes. You need only have the knowledge of the right
    natural antibiotics.



  • What will you do when there is no doctor? Two excellent
    books on the topic are pictured right. The Survival Medicine
    Handbook is the newer edition by Joseph Alton, M.D. (a.k.a
    Dr. Bones), and Amy Alton, A.R.N.P. (a.k.a. Nurse Amy).
