August 19, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin


Here’s a quick ‘basics’ for emergency food storage ’101′. Usually the first thing a newbie prepper does is to start building food storage.

Building an emergency supply of food storage is one of the easiest things to do because food is readily available (at this time) and you have a wide variety of foods and prices to pick and choose from – based on how much you want to spend.

Who Will You Let Into Your Retreat After The SHTF?

August 18, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin


The SHTF scenario is this: There has been a complete societal collapse and the vast majority of the population (who were unprepared) are desperate, suffering, and struggling to survive. There had been many ‘triggers’ set to fire-off the inevitable collapse, any of which would have ended the world as we know it. One of them went off and tipped over all the dominoes.

Without focusing on the circumstance which brought it all down, let’s focus on the aftermath and the question of letting others (or not) into your ‘retreat’, your BOL (bug out location), your home (wherever that is – assuming you’re supplied and safe).

Will you let anyone into your retreat after the SHTF?

Fake TV For Home Security

August 16, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin


During the night, a TV appears as a flickering shimmer of colors and hues against a window, shade, or curtain, as viewed from the outside. It sends a message (to the outside) that someone is home, watching TV. A home burglar looking for a vacant home to burglarize – will move on…

Home security and burglar deterrence should be thought of in ‘layers’. In addition to deterrents such as outdoor motion lights, security stickers & placards, deadbolts, bump-proof locks, long screws in your door strike-plate, an x-large dog bowl on the front porch, a real or fake security camera, etc., consider what the INSIDE of your home looks like as viewed from the OUTSIDE to a potential burglar.

I came across the following ‘Fake TV’, which I now use as part of my overall home security plan when I’m away from home. It is very effective…

Cities Are Artificial And Only Exist At The Expense Of Resources From Elsewhere

August 15, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin


Cities are not natural in that they are artificial unnatural centers of human existence.

Cities rely upon energy and resources from elsewhere to enable their existence and survival. The problem is – the sheeple have no ‘real’ fathom-ability that these resources come from mostly invisible and intertwined complicated ‘just-in-time’ distribution networks and systems, and they do not realize that they will likely die without them.

Systemic risk? I say yes, very much so…
