When it comes to family members supporting preps, I feel like I’ve heard it all. At one end, you’ve got the prepper families where each individual takes prepping seriously, and each member of the family works together toward the end goal of being more prepared. At the other end, you have individuals whose families really don’t get prepping and ostracize them, making them feel like the black sheep of the family just because they don’t understand. For these people, I’ve penned a couple articles in the past: My Spouse Doesn’t Like Me Prepping: What Can I Do? & How to Have the Prepper Talk With Your Family. Then you have all the in betweens: the father whose family puts up with his prepping so long as he doesn’t try to involve them, the mother whose stockpile is perfectly fine in her family’s eyes, but who can’t get her family to take prepping more seriously no matter how much she tries, the individual who’s hiding his preps from all his family and friends, because he just finds life easi..
A couple of weeks ago, I woke up to a feeling I hadn’t experienced in over a decade. As a kid I had mild asthma, and to suddenly feel my breathing become constrained – the start of a very mild asthma attack – was a real wake up call for me. I had almost forgotten that I used to have respiratory issues, and whilst my own problems with breathing were sporadic in nature (triggered by environment, mostly) I was still utterly unprepared, and that was pretty disconcerting. This situation has since been resolved, as the first thing I did after my breathing constrained was hop online to snag up some Ventolin inhalers from my pharmacy. Nonetheless, it got me to thinking about how important it is to make sure as many people as possible know how to deal with the onset of asthma, whether for the sake of helping yourself personally or helping someone who begins to suffer from an asthma attack near you; thus, spurring this article. First: What Is Asthma? Asthma is a chronic condition that impacts ..
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..

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..
