High Yield Low Cost Barter Items

Barter items are often discussed as a necessary prep.

Product Spotlight – Supreme 90 Day DVD

[AMAZONPRODUCT=B004S2YN5O] Your fitness is among the most important areas of preparedness that you can directly control. This Surpeme 90 Day program is essentially a knock-off to the popular P90X but A LOT less expensive. I’ve got both and thus far enjoy this program. [scrapeazon asin=”B004S2YN5O”]

One area of preparedness that I don’t think we preppers take as seriously as we should is inventorying our household possessions for an emergency situation. I’m not talking about organizing your supplies (I’ve written about that in the past here). This post is purely about “what happens if it’s all lost and now I need […]

Wish I knew about this when I bought my paracord from Camping Survival but it seems they’re offering a 7% discount off their already ridiculously low prices!

Review of PRI-G Fuel Stabilizer (Hands-Down the Best Available)

I had an opportunity this week to get my hands on a bottle of PRI-G fuel stabilizer, something I had been meaning to do for quite some time. For many, many years I’ve always used Stabil as my fuel stabilizer because it’s what’s been available locally. Sadly, PRI-G is difficult to find at times but […]
