A city dweller’s guide

  Another good book from Amazon here  

Plain as Day

We find it pretty amazing that even now, there are still many people who see nothing wrong with GMO food.  Even worse, many of those people believe the rhetoric that GMO is necessary in order to produce enough food.  This is ridiculous.  GMO crops are, in fact, less healthy, less resistant, and produce less food [...]

Great New Book

There’s a new book available on Amazon.  This book is a great resource for people who are just getting into green energy, living off the land, and other related topics.  Must have information if there’s a long-term SHTF situation.  Check it out here

Real Activism

  As stated in last night’s episode of Culture in Decline, “Activists don’t want to fight, they want peace.  And that’s exactly why they will lose.”.   As we have been saying for years, protesting and rallying accomplishes nothing but superficial victories.  If you want to cause a real change you have two choices.  You [...]

Are Vaccines Really What You Think They Are?

    Two very interesting points in the US legal code…   #1 states that no man, woman or child may be given vaccines, medications or other drugs without consent. However, consent is always assumed unless the person in question makes it clear that they do not consent.   #2 states that no vaccine, medication [...]

Ever feel like you’re surrounded by idiots?

    Well you just might be. They do seem to be popping up more and more as time goes on. The original IQ test wasn’t created to find smart people. It was created to find idiots and keep them out of the better schools. It was later adopted by some angry German people in [...]

Survivalism and Homesteading

Though there are some differences between SHTF survival and homesteading, there are also a great number of similarities.  I found a dirt cheap book with some good tips for anybody new to “homesteading”.  This info can be applied to anybody trying to live “off grid” regardless of their reasons.  Highly recommended!

Thought Crime

“Thought crime is death: Thought crime does not entail death. Thought crime IS death.” - 1984, George Orwell   In this age of no accountability and governments doing whatever they want, who is defining these crimes? Do you think they do it for your sake?   If you do, consider Aaron Swartz. He spent his [...]

Protect Yourself From RFID

More and more lately we’re seeing RFID chips being used.  Credit Cards, Bank Card, even new “enhanced” drivers licenses in certain areas have RFID chips in them.  Fortunately, for the most part these chips are being limited to various cards you would keep in your wallet.  These chips not only allow the government to track [...]

The Truth About the Fiscal Cliff

It seems like very few people are aware of what has just happened.  For the last few months, talk of the so-called fiscal cliff was everywhere you looked.  Then, at the last possible moment, the politicians “cut a deal” and we’re supposed to believe that the politicians saved the day and everything is fine. Let’s [...]

What Most Survivalists Forget

Most survivalists and preppers are prepared to hunt for food if the need arises.  They likely have a couple hunting rifles of different calibers, perhaps a shotgun as well, and a large supply of ammo.  Yet, there is one thing that many people seem to overlook.  Different rifles are suited to different prey.  Virtually all [...]

Happy Holidays!

Wherever you are and whatever you celebrate, have a safe and happy holidays!

The End is Nigh! But Not Really…

If you believe that the end of the Mayan long count calendar really marks the end of the world, then I suppose you are in quite a panic right about now. Just a few short hours to go. But consider this, in other parts of the world, such as Australia, it is already the 21st. [...]

Minimalist Bugout Bag

For those who want to pack lighter than what we’ve suggested here and here, there’s a good down to basics packing list at this site. This is a good top 10 list of things you absolutely must have.

Are You Ready?

Just a few days left until we can expect to see people going crazy.  Please take care if you leave the house on Friday, there’s no telling what you might encounter.  I don’t mean aliens, mayan gods or any other kind of apocalypse.  As I’ve said before on this site, the greatest danger to us [...]

When the SHTF


by Doc Sprocket

In these tumultuous times, we as a species may be facing some dire situations in the coming years. Some real SHTF situations. Whether those situations are caused by economic collapse, natural disaster, war, it makes little difference. The fact remains, that the average person is drastically unprepared to handle a major disaster.

Without the ability to buy food, most people would go hungry in a matter of days. Water would become hard to find too. Without power, the pressure in city water lines would dissipate rapidly.

There are countless people, books and websites that will tell you to keep a week's worth of food and water on hand for emergencies. But what about the long term? What if the oil really does run out? Or a worldwide drought decimates the food supply? What if you need to be self-sustaining for a year instead of a week? What if?

As the saying goes, better to prepare a year early, than a day late.

That is the purpose of this website. We are here to help you prepare as much as possible. So that IF the SHTF, you and your family have a fighting chance of survival.

Preparing, goes well beyond hoarding food and water. Without a doubt, the most important element of preparation, is knowledge. Knowledge about Survival Gear and Important Skills, as well as background information about Peak Oil, the Fractional Reserve Banking System, Natural Disasters and other potential causes of a SHTF situation, so that hopefully, you will be able to see it coming.

So take a look around. Learn as much as you can. It might just save your life one day.


I would also like to make something perfectly clear. This site is NOT about spreading fear. Quite the contrary. It seems lately we can't get through a single day without hearing something about "the end of the world". Whether it's the Mayan Calendar, WWIII, NWO, The Rapture, there's no shortage of theories predicting our demise. But they all have one thing in common, a misrepresentation. Short of a massive asteroid tearing the planet to pieces (and the odds are against that) none of these 'apocalypse' predictions would actually mean the end of the world.

Regardless of what happens, life will go on. Just as it has for billions of years. I would take that a step further and say that HUMAN life will go on as well. Maybe one of these predictions will come true and lives will be lost. But not all of us. As a species, we are intelligent, adaptable, and resilient. The "end of the world" is nothing of the sort. It is simply, the end of an era.

Regarding the NWO, Illuminati, and other conspiracy theories, even if they do have merit, it will not be the end of the world. It will be the end of THEIR world. We are not as complacent as the elite think we are. Awareness is growing exponentially, as is the frustration and anger of the people. They can only push us so far before we stop asking for change, and start demanding it. With every freedom they take away, with every crime against humanity, the elite are putting more nails in their own coffin. And as the ideas and information brought forth by decent people spreads, that process accelerates.

We will outlast them.
