Our buddy Sticks65 from Planet Bushcraft has posted another excellent video. This time he builds a shelter out of stuff that he finds in the wilderness.
Squash and Zucchini – Squash and Zucchini belong to the same family, and they have the same fertilizer requirements, so lets talk about them at the same time.
One of the benefits of Squash and Zucchini – they can be eaten raw. So you do not have to use precious fuel cooking Squash or Zucchini – but cook your food to kill any bacteria on it.
Fertilizer – use a well balanced fertilizer such as 13-13-13. Your going to need nitrogen for leaf production and pot ash for the Squash or Zucchini to form.
On the plant there is a female and a male pod. Pollination usually occurs early in the morning while its still cool and the honey bees are out. The bee has to go from the flower on the male pod, to the female flower.
My opinion – preppers and survivalist are not the same thing, there is a big difference. Preppers – get into survivalism because its the “cool” thing to be doing. “Oh look at me, I have 2 – 3 months of stockpiled food.” They might have gone down to the local store and bought 50 pounds […]
This is the finale to our patio gardening project. So lets discuss how things went, the results and the types of seeds we should stockpile. Overall, I was how the project went. Even though the box that the plants grew in was only about 6 inches tall, it seemed that the plants grew pretty good […]

Survivalist should take time to condition themselves to better prepare for a disaster. Its easy to sit in a chair and watch videos, or read articles about survivalism. But that is not enough. To really prepare for a disaster, people need to actually do something and practice their skills.
A recent video I posted on youtube received this comment. Kev…with so many bags are you gonna be able to find your bug out bag in emergency?? I dont know if the guy was just picking, or trying to make a joke – but either way I was not offended. The comment touches on an […]
Recently I was asked “how long I have been prepping?” That set off a whirlwind of thoughts about my life. Everything from my grandparents farm, to my dad taking my brother and I hunting, to my 1st and 2nd grade teachers going over duck and cover drills and what a nuclear explosion looked like, to watching our jobs and factories move to China, to camping next to the marsh in Bridge City, Texas, to hurricane Andrew, to watching what happened with Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Ike,,, the list might be a mile long.
A new wilderness survival books section has been added to online store lineup. These are the kinds of books that every hiker, camping or even day hikers should include in their pack. Whether your trip is 1 day or a week long excursion – its always good to have a book on wilderness survival in […]
Video filmed at Martin Dies State Park, just west of Jasper, Texas. In this segment we discuss certain aspects of survivalism.
Whether your just going camping, or bugging out to a friends house, its important to have some tents on hand. Keep in mind that if you and your family need to leave your home, tents offer portable shelter. During hurricane season, hundreds of thousands of people evacuate, and have nowhere to go. Having your own portable shelter provides more options on where to spend the night at.
Besides tents, every family member should have a sleeping bag, pillow, and maybe even a cot or air mattress. During an evacuation, having your own portable shelter provides more options then having to stay in a shelter supplied by city, church, or some other organization.
Sometimes local feed and fertilizer stores will get 16 gallon drums in stock – these can make excellent water storage solutions. Most of the time they were used to ship some kind of syrup, and the inside smells like Dr. Pepper. These may not be good for storing drinkable water, but will probably make a […]

If memory serves me right, sometime around 1998 somone in the Atlanta, Georgia was using a tractor with a post hole digger to put in a new fence. The post hole digger cut through a major fiber optic line that provided service to Atlanta, Georgia and several outlying areas. Estimates at the time were that […]
