Be Independent Rather Than Labeled Left or Right

March 10, 2017, by Ken Jorgustin

Something that has always bugged me… That is, how we are ‘forced’ and ‘herded’ into one of two ideals… LEFT or RIGHT.

We have been saddled here in the U.S. with a predominantly 2-party political system and I believe that it may be done this way for a reason.

Here’s the reason:

Pack Your 72-Hour Emergency Kit In Organized Categories

March 9, 2017, by Ken Jorgustin

Found this online – couldn’t resist – world’s biggest 72-hour emergency kit?

While it can be fun to pack your own 72-hour emergency kit (and to modify it now and again), don’t lose sight of the various categories for ‘the stuff’ inside…so that you ‘cover all the bases’ so to speak…

Let me rewind for just a second. What is the purpose of a 72-hour emergency kit? The answer may be a bit different for everyone, but the general purpose is to provide emergency preparedness supplies to assist in your survival and well-being for several days or more during a time when you might need it.

Some people refer to this kit as a bug-out bag, or BOB. The reality is that the differentiating lines get blurred, but that’s okay given that their purpose is generally similar.

So lets get back to the categories of preps that may go into one of these emergency kits:

So the issue of the day is, How do you apply preparedness for an overnight stay in a hotel?

Modern Survival In Suburbia: The Intangible Prep

March 7, 2017, by Ken Jorgustin

by Eric E. Borton:


Most of my friends and family live in subdivisions in suburban neighborhoods stretching from North Atlanta to Athens, Georgia. As turbulent times surround us, some of them are taking their preparedness more seriously. They’re beginning to understand that their absolute dependency on the grid, city utilities and services, and modern conveniences can be challenged at any time.

With my background in the military, helicopter rescue, and extensive travel to third world countries where being prepared is a way of life, they’re looking to me more and more for advice and guidance. As I direct them to great online resources such as Modern Survival Blog, I wanted to create a series of articles tailored for folks living as I do in suburbia.

The 2017 TV Series – Hunted

March 6, 2017, by Ken Jorgustin

I recently finished watching the last episode of the CBS TV series, ‘HUNTED’. The show was a contest to discover if any within a group of 9 duo teams could stay undiscovered by a team within .gov who were chasing them. The various teams being hunted (comprised of two people each) only had to remain undiscovered for 28 days and they would win $250,000.

I was intrigued to watch the show and to see where the teams went wrong and to observe how the .gov team functioned/operated to find them.

I was AMAZED to see the same mistakes being made by many of the teams being hunted, because it seemed so obviously apparent that their mistakes would lead the hunters right to them. I was also amazed by a few particularly disturbing techniques that our government agencies are using to track us…

OPSEC And Your Circle Of Friends

March 3, 2017, by Ken Jorgustin

OPSEC, or Operational Security can be so very, very important.

What is OPSEC? In short, it is keeping certain things secret, or simply the purposeful action of not talking about something or avoiding the topic altogether.

When it comes to prepping, preparedness, issues of security, and MANY other ‘things’, maintaining good OPSEC may be more important than you may realize. Especially when it comes to your immediate circle of friends – those whom you trust.

Here’s what I mean…
