Autoimmune disorders and breastfeeding

Before we get started, I (Kevin) am not a medical professional. What has been posted here is my opinion, and is not medical advice. Do not even consider this article as medical advice, because its not – its jut my non-professional opinion. There was an interesting article on the British Broadcasting Company website about Autoimmune […]

George A. Romeros Diary of the Dead

First impressions – this is a pretty good zombie flick. Maybe not a great movie, but it is good. Diary of the Dead addresses some real issues that would face our society if a wide spread disaster were to strike. During the 1918 flu pandemic, governments did not want want the public to know that […]

16 gallon portable water solution

Every survivalist should consider some kind of portable water solution. Whether this is 5 gallon buckets, 7 gallon drums or like in this video, 16 gallon drums. The drum in this video will hold 16 gallons of water, but I only put 15 gallons in it. This is to leave a little head room. These […]

Baby food considerations after a disaster

One consideration that is often over looked is baby food. Even though baby food is artifical food, and should be avoided, feeding infants after a disaster should be a serious consideration.

In the “real” world there is no such thing as baby food. There are no trees that grow jars of baby food, there are no baby food seeds that can be planted to grow a baby food plant. The only natural food for infants and babies is breast milk. Everything else is artificial food.

With this in mind, mothers that breast feed have a distinct advantage over mothers that do not breast feed. In the event of a disaster, mothers that breast feed their infants do not have to worry about formula, bottles or nipples. This means that infants that are breast feed have a better chance of survival in the event of some kind of wide spread or long term disaster.

Survival gear neoprene gloves

Neoprene gloves are my preference for cold weather. But these are only good to around 30 degrees. Once the temperature reaches the mid 30’s, I have a pair of thin, insulated gloves that I put on, and then pull the neoprene gloves over them. The rubber of the Neoprene allows the gloves to stretch over […]

Plans for 2009

As I look back 0n 2008, I also look forward to 2009. Over the past few months I have not been my usual self. Korey (my son) got a deer this hunting season, and so far that is all we have gotten is that one deer. Tomorrow is the last day of regular deer season, […]
