Even if you have the best home security cameras, you still need to install them in the right spots to make sure your home is protected against theft. Read on and find out the ideal places to set up your cameras! Home Security Cameras: Catch Thieves Red-Handed A well-monitored home is a safe home. According to the National Burglar and Fire Alarm Association, the chance of burglars invading houses without a security camera is three times higher than breaking into those with one. Well-placed cameras not only help identify intruders and increase the likelihood of catching them, but it also makes thieves hesitant to break into a home. Before you decide to install home security cameras, know the perfect spots to put them. 1. Front Door The front door of your home is the most popular entry point for burglars and criminals. While you may think most thieves will shy away from accessing them, an estimated 34% of burglars enter through the front door. Experts say that placing cameras about sev..

There’s a famous quote by Mike Tyson which says, “Everyone has a plan ‘till they get punched in the mouth.” With that said, few things can punch you in the mouth harder than a life-threatening disaster. While it’s certainly important to have a survival plan in place, it’s also important to know what could go wrong with it. Considering potential downfalls allows you to shore up the weaknesses in your plan and keeps you from being completely caught off guard if one of those downfalls becomes a reality. To help you spot potential weaknesses, here are five things that could go wrong with your survival plan. 1. Lost or Destroyed Supplies If you’ve stockpiled supplies, it’s natural for you to count on them being there when you need them. However, in a disaster scenario, these supplies are going to be a prime target for thieves, and they may end up stolen. Likewise, natural disasters such as fires..

Written by Guest Contributor on The Prepper Journal. Editors Note: A guest contribution from Texan to The Prepper Journal. I have had this one for awhile as the subject matter required some extra-special handling. As you will read it may be easy for some of the statements made herein to be labeled as sexist, or worse, and that clearly is not the authors intent. The material, heavily edited by me, is intended to raise awareness of an issue that one needs to prepare for as it is a fact of life. To the authors credit he included a number of steps to deal with complications, like excessive bleeding, and while I don’t doubt his proposed method, I also am not qualified to offer medical advice so I edited them out. All true preppers will seek the information needed through their own network of medical professionals and certified instructors, which is what both the author and I encourage. As always, if you have information for Preppers that you would like to share and possibly receive a $25..

Depravity, Frivolity, and Dissent: Are We Watching the End of an Empire? 29 comments October 21, 2017 Featured Posts Survival Saturday (ADULT CONTENT WARNING) A 40-year-old essay predicted the end of an empire and current events sure make it look like we’re watching it happen in real time. I spend a fair bit of time scanning the news every day for my site, Preppers Daily News. And some days, I just have to shake my head as I realize that people are so desperate for…something…that they just keep going to further and further extremes to try and find that elusive thing their lives are missing. The more I read, the more likeness I see to Sir John Glubb’s essay, The Fate of Empires and Search for Survival. (It’s only 24 pages and you should definitely read it – it’s brilliant.) Sir Glubb wrote this outstanding work..

If you don’t want to spend money on expensive propane space heaters and the like, you could try making your own space heaters, like VP Prepping & Survival does in this video. All you need to make this emergency heater is: An empty, clean small paint can. 70% isopropyl alcohol (50% doesn’t burn well and 90% burns too fast). Big roll of toilet paper. Here’s how to make it: Remove the coardboard inner roll from the toilet paper. Shove the toilet paper into the can (it should barely fit). Fill the can all the way up with alcohol (give the toilet paper time to soak it up). Now simply light it with a lighter. To put it out, just put the lad back on. Watch him make it below: This will only heat up a small space, but it’s safe to use indoors, the can doesn’t get very hot, and you could also use ..
A small number of posts on this blog have been about knife sharpening; probably nowhere near as much as should be on here considering how knife-heavy our content is, but nonetheless we do have a couple articles: What’s the Best Way to Sharpen Stainless Steel Knives? How to Use a Japanese Water Stone (Whetstone) to Sharpen a Knife As well as reviews of the Hapstone Pro & the Smith’s PP1 sharpeners. Thomas has used many tools to sharpen before – Japanese waterstones, manual systems like the Spyderco Sharpmaker (which we have in Canada but didn’t get a chance to review before we left), sandpaper, DMT stones, and belt grinders. He’s tested the Smith’s PP1, and the Lansky Blademedic for reviews, though he doesn’t ever prefer to use them over other techniques. We actually just got a second hand Worksharp here in the UK as well, so now that’s also a part of his long list of items he’s used to sharpen. His favourites, I’ll let outline himself: My favourite sharpening method is using a mec..
Written by Guest Contributor on The Prepper Journal. Editors Note: Another guest contribution from valknut79 to The Prepper Journal. The opinions expressed herein are his and should generate a lot of comments as we all have our favorites on this subject. When the world as we know it comes crashing down, I think we all know the value of a farmer or an architect, and the value of a sharpshooter or outdoorsman. Once things start to settle down again, I think that the value of a storyteller suddenly grows in importance, and a certain level of entertainment once again becomes an expected and valued part of society. In ancient times, oral histories were a way of passing down stories certainly, but they also had great value in terms of teaching important lessons, changing perspectives, building communities, and bringing people together. As a high school English teacher by trade, I firmly believe in the power and the value of having a good library at home. A book can provide knowledge or w..
