Cold Exposure Emergencies and How To Avoid It


Below is a great article relating to cold weather emergency’s from Tess Pennington and Jack Valentine on how to fight Hypothermia and considering the recent weather event’s they have some really good information worth sharing!

Article written by Tess Pennington and Jack Valentine

Many of us have first-hand accounts of what being without heat for a period of time feels like. Although I live in Texas where the cold weather is nothing compared to what some of you go through, there have been a handful of times where I have woken up to the after effects of a winter storm knocking out my electricity and immediately felt worry and panic about keeping my babies warm enough.

If you live in an area that experiences extremely cold temperatures, aside from a fireplace and an ample supply of firewood, the number one thing to invest in for your survival retreat is a gas oven/stove as opposed to an electric one. When the power goes out, the gas usually stays on, and there is no better way to heat a powerless house (or kitchen at the very least) than with 4 gas burners on high.

So Are Real Life Zombies A Threat?


Why Are Zombies The New Rage?

I normally scoff at the idea of zombies falling into the category of real disasters for prepping, but I’ve noticed more and more people attracted to the idea of a zombie apocalypse. Well with the movies I am legend, resident evil, world war z and The Walking Dead becoming a favorite among TV viewers over the last few years.

There is now everything from zombie survival kits, zombie response team magazine, zombiemart.com, zombie knives and even ammo manufacturers have come out with ammunition specifically for zombies “Hornady® Zombie Max” for example. Even long time magazine Guns and Ammo has countless articles about zombie related content. Hell even the Pentagon has a battle plan against zombies. Even the CDC is getting in on the band wagon. Don’t believe me? Heres the link. http://www.cdc.gov/phpr/zombies.htm Heck if your really serious there is even a chainsaw bayonet for your AR for dicing the little boogers up into small pieces.

Get em while their hot! Good for zombies and front doors!
