Survival Experts Say: Stop Believing This Garbage

  • When it comes to prepping we do so much research and we take heed to most of what we are told. That way, should the day ever come when our skills are put to the test we will have an advantage over those who sat back and did nothing but trust that others would take care of them should the need arise.

    Throughout history, we can read account after account of people who went to great lengths to prepare and accounts of those who did not. In fact, recently there was an account of a man who put a large air tube around his house in the event of massive rains that were said to be headed his way and even as others scoffed at his paranoia his property was saved and his family was saved as his neighbor's houses flooded and their possessions lost.

    But how do we separate the good advice from the bad? The legit tips and tricks from the ones that are just plain silly? How do we know what will really happen?

    To give you a better idea of what to expect, go over to the next page and read up on a more down to Earth view of what will happen once the grid goes down.

      For what it is worth, I am in total agreement with this post. No one really knows how bad it may get! For some, it may become true life or death experiences day after day! Others will experience a lesser amount of hardship. Your good sense, proper preparation, as you see it, and what I call SITUATIONAL AWARENESS will be the rule of the day. That you realize or even believe that the unthinkable might become a reality is the largest obstacle in your way to survive out of the way! You are much smarter than you give yourself credit for. You also know that you have physical limits which must be honestly addressed. Just these few things add up to much more than you realize and puts you ahead of a lot of the masses who deny the probabilities and will quickly fail to survive! It is quite similar to the ANT AND THE GRASSHOPPER if you think about it! All the preparation in the world will not guarantee your survival but none or minimal planning will certainly, greatly diminish your chances of survival! Common sense must be the word of the day.

      I have been an outdoors man all my 58 years here and I just laugh at some well… most of the “survival” garbage posted on too many of these sites. Not only the outdoor survival but the loads of crap they tell you to stockpile and carry. None of it is realistic and will be more of a hindrance than a help. Most of it will eventually kill you

      I don’t stockpile anything. I keep a backpack with the minimum. Fire starter, knife, hatchet, few different ways to get food, cordage and a tarp.

      Really? Why do you idiots insist in making me load page after page when in this virtual reality of the digital world there is no limit to the page length. Why can’t you just use one page. I refuse to click and click and click. What the$#%&!@* really.

      Some valid points however #2 is a Polyanna assumption that order would be restored sooner than later. The ethics and morality of the country is very low. It’s no longer 1940.

      It’s to make more money on advertising. They are paid by the number of page views, so they divide content into multiple pages. Stupid, I know, it’s actually driving people away from these type of pages. The advertisers will wise up sooner or later…

      Finally some common sense in a blog. I, personally did the 5-10 acre thing. VERY HARD WORK but the rewards are staggering. Seriously…… Without trying it you really can NOT imagine what you can do with little more space, seeds, water and the will to do what needs be done.

      There certainly is a lot of nonsense about making do in the wood come the end of the world. That said most people would do well if not far better to simply buy a better set of doors and stay indoors.
