Long Term Urban Survival: Feasible or Not

     All preppers and survivalists have different plans for survival and they cover whole ranges of bugging in, bugging out, bug out bags, bug out vehicles, and bug out locations. There are some though who are planning to bug in and remain in a city during a time of crisis or disaster and it is perhaps one of the most controversial options a person can choose. This is because many people question whether or not it is even possible to survive for a long period of time in an urban environment.

Some Links from the Internet

      So if there is one thing that the internet promotes it is spending tons of time just wandering around different websites and search engines and so on and so forth. In fact that is likely how many people have ended up here at the Paracord Project in the first place. However this same wandering can be a real pain when you're actually trying to find some information on something specific. So as a result I thought I would post up some of my favorite survivalist and prepper websites from around the web that some of you might find really interesting as well. Check them out!

A Get Home Bag

      When your trying to prepare for the worst, one of the first things, and most common things that people start to consider is the Bug Out Bag. After the bug out bag, many people turn to the idea of every day carry items or a bug out vehicle. Well, before the bug out vehicle, and between the bug out bag and the everyday carry, is something else we should have prepared. The Get Home Bag (GHB).
