Bugging In: How to Begin

     For many of us, it is easy to begin planning for disaster by focusing on a things like a bug out bag, and a bug out location.  We talk about evacuation plans, and buy things like bandanas and fire starters, even though we already have half a dozen of each.

     However the hardest part for most people, is really starting to develop in home preps for when you have to stay put.  Bugging out requires a shorter time frame, a smaller budget, and is often times just more exciting sounding.  Bugging in requires more supplies, and a good organization plan, and even for some of us, we have to figure out where to put all of it.  We've put together a list of all the items you should have at home, and where to go from there.

20 Books You Should Have on Your Survival Bookshelf

     There is something about a book.  The smell of the pages.  The weight of it in your hand.  With tablets for reading, books on tape, and ebooks that you can download to your computer, the real book seems to be going to the wayside.  However, when it comes to survival, physical books are a must.  Books are a resource that you can go to at any time, including when SHTF.  Books don't need any source of power to work and therefore they can be your best resource when things go wrong.

Spring Wild Edibles

      Finally the weather has warmed up, and we can say we are definatly feeling spring. For many parts of the country it has been spring for a while, but further north it has only been these last few weeks that the weather has finally changed over from winter to spring.

     Spring is always a time for cleaning up and starting fresh things. We clean out or garages, open the windows, and plant new gardens. Plants begin to bloom, leaves reappear, and we start thinking about fresh foods again.

      One of the greatest places to find fresh food is out in the forests. Wild edibles are a nutritional, fresh, fun and free! So take a pleasant walk in the woods and pick up some tasty morsels for dinner.
