Ground

Ground

Ground refers ultimately to a physical place of safety and security provided by a shelter! It could be as simple as a tent or as elaborate as an underground cement bunker. Practically speaking it is the home you are currently living in, and we will explore this further as we blog.

Ask yourself: What will I do WTSHTF? Where will I go to sleep safely at night? Where will my friends and family go? Who will provide me with shelter from the harsh elements; cold, wet, wind? Who will provide protection from wildlife or looters? Or did my failure to plan cause me to rely on an ill prepared government to look after me?

Words from a Bosnian Survivalist

Words from a Bosnian Survivalist Translator’s note: This tale had originally been recorded in French and then translated by two Russian survivalists who met the man. The Bosnian is anonymous for reasons which will soon be made clear from reading the articles. -MicroBalrog I am from Bosnia. You know, between 1992 and 1995, it was hell. For one year I lived, and survived, in a city with 6,000 people, without water, electricity, gasoline, medical help, civil defense, distribution service, any kind of traditional service or centralized...

The Precepts of Rawlesian Survivalist Philosophy – by James Wesley, Rawles http://www.survivalblog.com/precepts.html The following is a general summary of my survivalist philosophy: Modern Society is Increasingly Complex, Interdependent, and Fragile. With each passing year, technology progresses and chains of interdependency lengthen. In the past 30 years, chains of retail supply have grown longer and longer. The food on your supermarket shelf does not come from local farmers. It often comes from hundreds or even thousands of miles...

Briden Solutions is your source for emergency preparedness and survival supplies: http://www.bridensolutions.ca#a_aid=the7Gs The window and range of optimal core body heat is very narrow and requires foresight to stay within that range during abnormal situations. Any significant core temperature variations that are prolonged for more than a brief amount of time are incompatible with human life. http://www.bridensolutions.ca#a_aid=the7Gs Get educated, and be prepared to survive the uncertainty of the near...
