In this weeks edition of Survival Sunday: Living Off The Land, The Minimalist Tool Bag, Metalworking Tools For Preppers, Dropping Off The Grid, Are You Prepared Enough? and 7 More…
I hope that everyone has had a great week. My week has been pretty good. I have been on vacation for the whole week which was really nice. We did spend a good time of it moving and getting everything settled in our new house. It is nice to have a little more space and that’s not a bad thing for a prepper. There is not really much else to report from my end. I have just been enjoying my time with my family while I don’t have to work all day.
Here are the highlights of what I found this week:
Tools And Tips For Living Off The Land – Not everyone can make a go of living off the land. This article highlights the challenges associated with living off the land and has some great pointers on what it takes to be a modern hunter-gatherer.
The Minimalist Tool Bag – When it comes to completing a task, I have always believed that you have to have the right tool for the job. There are plenty of times where I have tried to do a job with a tool that I knew was not the right selection and while this can be done, it is often times significantly more difficult. This is a good piece about putting together a basic tool kit as a prepper, or anyone for that matter.
Automotive & Metalworking Hand Tools Every Prepper Should Have – Once you have your basic tools together, look at obtaining tools for special purposes like automotive and metalworking specialities as mentioned in this article.
Dropping Off The Grid: Advice From Experienced Homesteaders – I don’t think that this is really a roadmap to actually drop off the grid, more like reducing the need to rely on others. There are seven actionable steps in this article to make this happen.
Are You Prepared Enough? – From one of my favorite resources, The Prepper Journal, this is about how to approach preparing for difficult times and what the reality is of actually being prepared for “the event” or whatever it is that you make the effort for.
Where To Find Food & Water After The SHTF – This is great info for everyone but it especially applies to the urban crowd. It is great to have a good supply of food and water on hand but it is good to also know where to find more, whether it is out of necessity or a strategic move.
How To Create A Safe Room In Your House Or Apartment – I think a safe room is on the dream list of most preppers. Probably right before the underground bunker on my list. This is well thought out information about putting a safe room together.
If Your BS Detector Isn’t Shrieking, It’s Broken – Are we all being conned?
Home Defense On A Budget: 20 Inexpensive Tips – Not the end all, be all of home defense guides but there are some great ways to harden a structure against unwanted visitors.
5 Survival Tips From The USMC Survival Course – While this is predominantly geared toward wilderness survival, these ideas could certainly be employed in an urban or suburban environment.
Create An Office Emergency Kit – Of the many survival kits that a well prepared person should have, an office survival kit is a must. This is especially true if you work a good distance from home, in an urban environment, or in a high-risk area.
K-10 Survival Dog Collar Review – There are a ton of paracord bracelets that are marketed to preppers these days. This is the first survival dog collar that I have seen though. I am not sure of the durability or the practicality of these collars but it seems like a novel idea. I am not sure whether or not there is great advantage to having a dog collar that contains fishing materials or a straw, but for the prepper who loves dogs or has everything else it might be a great thing to have.
That’s it for me this week. It ended up being quite a few great pieces that I found…it must be the extra time from being on vacation. I hope that you all have had a great week and keep getting ready for tough times.
