How To Make A Book Safe

I saw this video from The Daily Prep on YouTube and thought that it would be something that would be valuable to pass along. It seems like a fairly straight forward project and an old hardback book can be acquired at a low cost or free from a friend, library sale, thrift store, university, or school. Besides a solid book, all you need is white glue and a razor knife and you will have an extra hiding place that will fit in almost anywhere. This is a great addition to a home security plan. Check out the video and if you like what Dan has to say make sure you leave a comment for him and subsribe to his YouTube channel.

What is the best homemade hiding place that you can think of or have created?

12 Planks of Modern Survivalism – Jack Spirko

Those of you who have been following the blog for a while know that I am a fan of Jack Spirko. For those of you who are newer followers or first time readers, I am a fan of Jack Spirko who is best known for his work at The Survival Podcast. Jack originally started his podcast a few years back and recorded from his VW Jetta on his daily commute. Since his humble beginnings, he has grown his podcast to a daily audience in the tens of thousands of listeners and makes several appearances at events as a keynote speaker across the United States every year. Today’s post is a YouTube video of a presentation that Jack gave earlier this year on his philosophy of ‘The Twelve Planks of Modern Survivalism at the Liberty Forum 2012 that is an annual event by the Free State Project in New Hampshire. I listened to this keynote when Jack first made it available on The Survival Podcast and thoroughly enjoyed it and felt that it would be a valuable presentation to pass along.

How To Make A Swedish Fire Torch

I saw this video by Reggie’s Bushcraft on YouTube and had to share it because I thought it was great. I have never really forgotten anything major like a stove when I went camping but this is a useful skill that would be a great help if it were to happen. Having the ability to make a Swedish Fire Torch like the one that is made in the video could prove to be invaluable in a number of situations. Thank you to Reggie’s Bushcraft for making such a useful video.

Toilet Paper Heater Anyone?

Do you ever see something and just think to yourself, how cool is that? From the very first time I saw this video that is what I thought it. This video is from USNERDOC on YouTube and demonstrates how to create an emergency heater/stove using a 1 Quart Paint Can, A Roll of Toilet Paper, and a Quart of Isopropyl Alcohol.

The complete list of materials from USNERDOC is as follows:



Not only is this heater/stove practical and easy to make but it is made using materials that can be located at any hardware or big box store. USNERDOC lists this heater specifically for use as a vehicle heater but the applications could easily be expanded for heating food as well as a variety of other options. The instructional PDF file that USNERDOC put together for this heater can be located at this link.

If you are a YouTuber and a prepper I would recommend subscribing to USNERDOC’s channel!
