DIY: How to Make Natural Cordage

     Rope is an essential survival item, and as a result the ability to make your own cordage is important as well. Once you know how to make cordage, no matter what situation you find yourself in, as long as you can find some kind of plant to get fibers from, you can make cordage.

Cattail: A Survival Plant

          When surviving out in the wild the smallest things can make the difference between life and death, such as knowing the right plants and how to use them.  Whether your just a regular hiker or camper, a naturalist, or learning skills for survival, cattail is a plant to know.  This is because not only is it edible but it has plenty of other uses as well.

Book Review: Deep Survival

      Recently as part of my prepping I have been looking for different books that I can add to my bookshelf. Mainly because in the event that SHTF, it is much more likely that my books will survive rather than my internet and all its resources. This has led me into the wonderful world of survival books, both fiction and non fiction.  As I read through these books I would like to give you all a review of what I think of these different books.  The first one I have for you is Deep Survival.

Five More Preps For Five Dollars

     So a while back on the Paracord Project we did a post called five preps for five dollars. For preppers on a budget these items are the best types of things to get, because you can still prep without breaking the bank. Now not everything can be obtaind for five dollars or less, but there are quite a few things that can be. As a result we bring you five more preps for five dollars.
