August 27, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin


One prep with literally thousands of uses is Duck Tape (also called Duct Tape), a miracle tape created during World War II when the US military needed a flexible, durable, waterproof tape to use making repairs in the field. The GIs called it “duck tape” because it was waterproof, like a duck’s back.

August 26, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin


A wood stove may be one of the most important preps for the winter, especially for us northern preppers. Whether or not a wood stove is your primary or backup source of heat, it’s simplicity and readily available fuel source makes it a no-brainer for preppers in a colder climate.

Not long ago we moved to northern New Hampshire, and while our home’s heat source is a propane furnace, I will be adding a secondary heat source to not only supplement the existing system, but also to provide peace-of-mind should the furnace break down, should our propane run out, should the power go out, or even if the SHTF…
