Grub

Grub refers to food, water and necessary-to-life consumables.

Most households (in North America) have food in their pantries enough to survive seven to ten (7-10) days. It is said that the human body can survive for thirty (30) days without food. It is also said that the human body can only survive THREE (3) days without water.

Ask yourself:  What will I do WTSHTF? Where will I get my next meal? Where will my friends and family get their next meal? When I am thirsty who will provide me with fresh, clean, safe drinking water? Or did my failure to plan cause me to rely on an ill prepared government to look after me?

Drinking water is becoming known as Blue Gold, and there are many people out there suggesting that the next wars will be fought over water, not oil.

New to prepping?

I highly recommend those new to prepping check out the following article Surviving An Urban Disaster – By Richard Duarte. It’s in the June 2013 issue of SWAT Magazine (Survival Weapons and Tactics). Very well written and covers the basics… “Consider the following: The main goal of urban survival preparation/planning is to increase your chances of staying alive during and after a crisis.”   This is a basic statement and I fully agree… it’s not about having ten thousand pounds of grain stored in an...

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

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...

Your “Caloric Life-Line”…Food Is the Kiss Of Life!

Posted by on Dec 20, 2012 in General, Grub | 0 comments

My apologies people, I came across this article in an email from the Financial Survivors Network but I couldn’t find the source-code link: Your “Caloric Life-Line”…Food Is the Kiss Of Life! There are many opinions about what people should have in terms of an emergency food supply. The recent events of Hurricane Sandy have opened people’s eyes about the fact that food storage is NOT something for the “crazy” or “paranoid”. Even the US Government (Ready.gov) says that you should have at least 3 days of food and water.  If you are thinking...

Store What You Eat, Eat What You Store

Posted by on Dec 12, 2012 in Grub | 0 comments

This is by far THE best advice you can follow when you are storing food, whether in your pantry in your kitchen, in your basement, or at your bug-out survival retreat, or bunker: Store What You Eat, Eat What You Store There is no point storing food that you will never eat, that’s just wasted money and wasted shelf space. You need to store and rotate food supplies that you enjoy and that have good nutritional value AND nutritional shelf life. Some foods kept under ideal conditions can last for 25 years, but their nutritional value decays...

Plan B – Mobilizing To Save Civilisation by Lester R. Brown

Posted by on Nov 17, 2012 in General, Ground, Grub, Guidance | 0 comments

At the start of this year (2012) I was still very skeptical about global warming. The buzzword had become a political stick and the parties weren’t shy about wielding it wildly. The intention was good, but the beat down never came, and the threat of the big stick became just that, a stick. Big Oil and the politicians squashed it successfully in congress and global warming went away as the corporately-owned media fluttered more reality-TV gossip in front of our increasingly medicated audiences. But I wasn’t convinced, I could see...
