Survival Book Review: Bug Out Vehicles and Shelters

The fertilizer hits the fan and you may have to evacuate your area.

Immediately, the roads and highways will be jammed with unprepared refugees, most of them fleeing in panic to go somewhere - anywhere - else.

A prepper will be prepared for this eventuality, hopefully, and will not join the mindless crowd. But there may be no choice regarding staying or going  prior to or during a flood, earthquake, hurricane or tsunami. You may have to join the exodus.

So what is your plan, to get your family to safety, and do you have a vehicle you can depend on? Get some ideas by reading this review of "Bug Out Vehicles and Shelters."

Blake Miller's "Best Jerky in Central Oregon" Recipe

Blake's recipe is great!
Those of us who are getting ready for hunting season know that energy in the field is a vital part of the whole experience. Healthy snacks keep you from getting hungry. Prolonged calorie deficit means you’ll start to get weak. That can affect your ability to maintain your body heat and keep moving.
Besides, who wants to go outdoors and be miserable! Here is GPS and land navigation expert Blake Miller’s jerky recipe. The meat should be completely covered by the mixture, so I’m not sure just how many pounds this recipe might be good for!

Chili Mix

Chili con carne (often known simply as chili) is a spicy stew.  The name of the dish derives from the Spanish chile con carne, “chili pepper with meat”. Traditional versions are made, minimally, from chili peppers, garlic, onions and cumin along with chopped or ground beef. Beans and tomatoes are frequently included.
Variations, both geographic and personal, may involve different types of meat as well as a variety of other ingredients.
In a survival situation, chili is a great choice for using up some of the less-choice cuts of meat. The dish can help stretch limited supplies of meat to feed more people.

Field Test: The EcoZoom Biomass Stove

The EcoZoom is very efficient!
Consider this scenario: If the Stuff Has Hit the Fan (SHTF), you may end up with no potable water. In the aftermath of a large-scale disaster, such as the tornado that hit Joplin, MO, large groups of people will need pure drinking water. In many such cases, boiling may be the only practical way to kill the nasties that can cause water-borne illnesses.
And what about all that storage food you have on hand – how much of it needs to be cooked, and how long will your propane, charcoal or firewood reserves last?
Those are some of the reasons I agreed to field test the EcoZoom BioMass stove. To read the review, click here!
