Happy Easter to You!

I thought I would quickly say “happy Easter” and hope you have a safe and fun day today. Though my kids no longer believe in the Easter Bunny, they’ll have plenty of chocolate-filled eggs to hunt and even got to color a few hard-boiled eggs too…

Note About RTS (my post yesterday, layout changes, updates, etc)

First, I would like to thank nearly all of you for your comments on my article Why I Don’t Worry About An Assault Weapons Ban yesterday… I knew you were out there! I say “nearly all” because some people have no ability to be tactful or are plainly rude. Granted, preppers are an opinionated bunch and if there’s […]

Remember that being prepared is every bit about protecting yourself and family from “everyday” problems like credit card and identity theft as it is about being prepared for the next hurricane to roll through your town.

Happy 1 Year Anniversay to reThinkSurvival.com !!

I was looking through some archived posts the other day and realized that the one year anniversary of me decided to really make something of this blog/website was one year ago today.
