It’s Sunday again. This week has been relatively uneventful. I went golfing which is something that I do not do often. In fact, I golf so little that my score would be better suited for bowling than it is for golf. I had fun anyway and while golf is not survival related, it is important to remember to have fun and relax from time to time.
While cruising the web this week, here are a few things that I found:
Smoke Inhalation: What To Do If You’re Trapped – This is a great and very accurate piece from James Hubbard, The Survival Doctor. It is good information to have because no one plans on getting trapped by fire and smoke but it happens every day.
Back To The Basics: Water For Survival – Water is one of the basics but also seems to be one of the greatest challenges for the prepper. Even though it is so simple, water can be tough to store because it is heavy and takes up a lot of space. This article from Gaye at Backdoor Survival is a great starting point if you are trying to sort out your water storage.
First Things First: Key Questions Facing The Beginning Prepper – SHTFplan.com is a great site and provides valuable information daily. With that being said, here is a great rundown of some of the areas that new preppers should evaluate. Let’s be honest, it can’t hurt the experienced prepper to take a look at these areas too and make sure they have done what they need to.
Does Size Matter? How long should the blade on a survival/bushcraft knife be? – There is no question that whether you plan on bugging in or bugging out, that a survival knife is a necessity. The decision on which knife is best is hotly contested and is one that we all have to make for ourselves but this article can help you decide what may be best for you.
An Often Missed Prep: Your Home Inventory – You need to have a home inventory for many reasons; insurance, preparedness, planning for the future, rotation of supplies, etc. But it is often overlooked and is not really hard to do. Look a these tips and either plan to do your inventory, or update the last one you did.
That wraps things up for me this week. I hope that you have a great week! Keep preparing for what could be difficult times ahead.
What did you find last week that everyone could benefit from?
