Blackfire Clamplight Emergency 100-Lumen LED Flashlight

Jul 9, 2014 Source Last week I reviewed the Blackfire Clamplight Waterproof flashlight which I liked an awful lot. If you’re looking for a quality clamping light, that’s the one to get. This week I got to review the Blackfire Clamplight Emergency 100-Lumen LED Flashlight which you might call the “little brother” flashlight. Because I had such a good time with the other clamp light I was looking forward to reviewing this one too. Unfortunately, it didn’t quite measure up to it’s “big brother.” Specs from Amazon: 100 Lumen Flashlight Hand held, clamps & stands 100 lumen flashlight & emergency strobe\ Snap on emergency beacon Emergency Flashlight & Strobe – Blackfire’s new concept puts to shame all other flashlights sitting in ... continue reading...

What REAL Chicken Eggs Look Like

Jul 8, 2014 real-chicken-eggsI’m back in Kansas City visiting my in-laws for a while and one of the many benefits of doing so is that they get farm-fresh eggs from a friend who raises their own chickens. When making breakfast this morning I realized that many of you may not know what REAL chicken eggs look like so I snapped a photo… As you can see they’re VERY different from their store-bought counterparts. They’re different sizes, different colors, not always shaped perfectly, and the worst part… they’re DIRTY! Try selling these in the store. Although you cannot see from the photo, the yolks are also quite a bit more “vibrant” in color than store-bought too. ... continue reading...

If you’ve yet to see how to make an “Uber” match, you’re in for a treat. To see the original article on how to create one, click here. If you want a self-contained fire-starter that you can rely upon to get a fire going when you need it the most the Uber match is where it’s at, in my opinion. To be sure, an Uber match is a near brilliant mesh of DIY materials that you may find around the house (matches, cotton balls, wax) and a bit of ingenuity. I can safely say ... continue reading...

Did You Know?: There’s a Berkey Water Filter to Fit Your Family’s Needs

Jul 5, 2014 Image CreditEver since I purchased my first Berkey water filter several months ago I couldn’t be more impressed. I choose the Royal Berkey filter system at the time and it seems to work out well as I only really need to fill it once a day most days. That said, I probably could have opted for a bigger system since there are five of us. If it were our only source of water then I would have definitely gone bigger AND added more filters. Anyway, the point in today’s post is because many people don’t seem realize there are different sized units when the refer to the “Berkey water filter.” Best of all, I’m sure ... continue reading...

Blackfire Clamplight Waterproof LED Light: 170 Lumens, 360 Degree Swivel

Jul 2, 2014 blackfire-clamplight-waterproof A few weeks back I received this Blacklight Clamplight to review. As I’ve never owned a quality clamping light before (I have owned poorly made ones) I said “sure” and have begun to really like it! Though I still prefer a quality headlamp for survival situations such as a bug out, these clamp lights are nice for around the house work. Moreover, as a result of technology you get a LOT more for your money these days. The clamplight specs: IPX7 water resistance rated – protected against water immersion for 30 minutes at a depth of 1 meter Hand held, clamps, stands & floats 190 lumen hi/lo & strobe Rubberized coating Head pivots 360 degrees I do ... continue reading...

How to Make a Water Bottle Survival Kit

Jun 30, 2014 water-bottle-survival-kit-featuredI thought I would see how many useful survival items I could stuff into a small water bottle like this one (it’s 16-ounce, hard-sided): At 16-ounces it’s not a very big water bottle and that was a part of the challenge! Of course, you could choose a larger water bottle if you prefer and it doesn’t have to be hard-sided either. Since a water bottle is relatively small you could easily toss it into a bag, backpack, or the console of your car and not think twice about it. Here’s what I was able to stuff inside: In no particular order: Vaseline and cotton ball fire starters – I made these a while back ... continue reading...

3 Ingredient Homemade Deodorant My Wife Approves Of!

Jun 27, 2014 homemade-deodorantAbout a year or so ago I started making my own deodorant and haven’t looked back. Personally, I was fine with buying store-bought deodorant but my wife never liked the stuff much. In fact, she’s always had a hard time finding deodorant that both works AND didn’t make her break out… seems she’s sensitive to various chemicals in them. So, she searched and searched and found deodorant from Penny Lane Organics that she thought would finally work, and it did for the most part. Problem is that it was a bit expensive for deodorant and even this organic deodorant could make her break out. The best part is that it happens to contain the ... continue reading...

We Came to Conquer: The Continuous Rise of The Preppers

Jun 25, 2014 Photo via Pinterest They have been called many names: alarmists, over the top doomsters, mad, crazy. They call themselves the “preppers.” They are regular people with regular lives, who, just like all of us, would do anything to protect their homes and families—even protect them from the end of civilization, or the world as we know it. In ... continue reading...
