A Good Compass For Map Reading And Navigation

November 20, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin


It’s a good idea not to rely solely on your GPS tracker. A good compass (and map) will enable you to navigate without the high tech.

Map reading and navigation by map in this modern day-and-age of GPS is apparently seldom used by hikers, hunters, campers, etc.. who instead rely on GPS trackers. The problem with that is a GPS tracker relies on the functionality of its ‘high-tech’, and it requires functional batteries and satellite reception. It could become ‘a brick’ during bad weather, with dead batteries, or if it simply ‘breaks’.

The alternative? (and backup method)

A good compass (and a topo map of the area) will enable navigation in the wilderness.

CIA Double Agent Predicts Terrorist Attack On America Within 2 Weeks

November 19, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin


This is a situational awareness alert. A CIA ‘double agent’ who had infiltrated the Al Qaeda terrorist network is urgently stating that he believes the United States is ‘next on the list’ as ‘ISIS’ will attack within the next two weeks – likely around the Thanksgiving holiday period.

He states that the ISIS terror organization in Europe (following the Paris attacks) are desperate (‘on the run’ there) and are feeling that their time may be up – therefore speeding up their timetable to do as much damage as possible.

November 18, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin


A recent comment rings true: “I’m feeling the pressure…like I’m running out of time” (with prepping / preparedness).

November 16, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin


The best survival knife is the one that you have with you. With that said, and if you were to buy a new survival knife, what would be the best one?

If you could only take one knife with you, what would you take and why would you take it?

Lets try to answer those questions with a review of functionality, as well as a few examples…

What did you do for your preparedness this week? (2015-11-14)

November 14, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin

Looking out the back window this morning

This weekly post is open forum (any topic) enabling you to voice your opinions, concerns, questions, and to also let others know what you have done this week for your preparedness. The more who comment, the more ideas that are spread around for the benefit of all…

If you’re a ‘lurker’, (and I know there are a-lot of you) lets hear from you too…


There are so, so many reasons to be prepared… Several articles this week focused on a ‘Lights Out’ scenario whereby the electrical power grid goes down from cyberattack (inspired by Ted Koppel’s recent book), and we had a great number of comments from you all with your thoughts and opinions. Thanks for contributing your input.

Today, sadly, we wake up to the tragedy in Paris where radical fundamentalist Islamist’s have murdered 120+ people in multiple coordinated acts of violent terrorism. They said they’re just beginning… It is surely (it should be) a wake-up call for the sleeping masses who are living in their cushy bubbles of perceived security.

Our normalcy biases can be turned upside-down in the ‘blink of an eye’, and it is wise to prepare for unforeseen (or foreseen) disaster in our uncertain world of enemies, systemic risks, and dependencies…

With that said, what have you been up to this week?
