Water is always incredibly important in any situation. Day to day we need it to stay alive, so its value increases tenfold in a survival scenario. Without it, other resources would barely even matter as we'd die in a matter of days. However, despite it being the thing that keeps us alive the most, it can also kill us super easily, as of how easily it can be changed, manipulated, and affected by various forces.

Lasting throughout a SHTF situation requires an insane amount of resources. While most of those resources you need are pretty easy to get a long-lasting or near-infinite source of them, food is a different story. There aren't pipelines delivering a steak dinner to you every evening.Getting a proper food source going usually means having some kind of farm or garden.

Almost anybody would make the smart choice and go with a simple garden rather than running a farm … [Read more...] about Use These 4 Clever Methods To Start A Survival Garden Even In The Coldest Of Winters!

And right now in our comfortable homes or wherever we live, we've worked out some kind of simple water source, usually a pipeline. And just like … [Read more...] about (Video) Check Out This Amazing DIY Water Purification System! No Bacteria, No Germs, No Diseases, Just Clean Water!
If we're talking about injuries in or during a SHTF or survival scenario, our minds usually jump to the extreme. Things like a gunshot wound, limb loss, or major poisoning. Deadly wounds that could probably kill us. However, it's more likely that in any given situation you'll be faced with some smaller injuries. Things less lethal and more common. Wounds you and I are less afraid of, but can actually be quite inhibiting. Small wounds can be equally bad at times, dulling your senses, killing your alertness, or breaking your … [Read more...] about If SHTF, a Bad Toothache Could Be Unbearable.
