This Is How Much Water It Takes To Make Your Favorite Foods Extensive drought has Californians thinking twice about running the tap while brushing their teeth or taking that 20-minute shower. But what some people don't realize is that a huge portion of our water footprint is "hidden," meaning it's used for the things we eat or wear, and for the energy we use. Globally, agricultural production accounts for 92 percent of our water footprint. In the United States, meat consumption alone accounts for a whopping 30 percent of our water footprint. So exactly how much water do the foods you eat require? Which food would win in a water use showdown?

Essential Outdoor Survival Skills You can’t call yourself an adventurer without these critical outdoor survival skills. When heading into the great outdoors, or any potential survival situation, we all know to bring the necessary gear and supplies. You’ll need food, water, fire and all the other essentials on your backpacking gear list. A true outdoorsman, however, is ready for survival no matter the situation. Are You Ready Series: 72 Hour Kits Many prepping websites have multiple articles on 72 hours bags (aka: evac packs, bug-out-bags, blow out bags or survival kits). Every family should have a 72 hour bag ready, not because we should all run for the hills, but because there may be an unforeseen disaster such as a chemical spill or flash flooding where your family will have to make a swift evacuation. There are certain disasters that can occur with little or no warning such as fires, hurricanes and flooding. Having things in order as well as a plan in place will expedite the process of leaving, as well as keeping things running as smoothly as possible. The main goal of having a 72 hour bag is to be equipped to survive a three day period; and in this case, survival is dependent upon you. Therefore, the 72 hour bag should be pre-assembled and ready to go as well as have a 72 hour bag separately for the vehicle.

Airsoft. It’s Not Just For Kids: Using Airsoft in Your Firearms Training One of my sheepdog goals this year is to become proficient with a handgun and to get my carry license. I bought my first handgun a few months ago — a Smith & Wesson M&P 9mm — and have been taking defensive handgun classes at the U.S. Shooting Academy. One thing I quickly discovered is that firearm training gets really expensive, really fast. First there’s the range time you need to pay for, but what really kills you is the ammo. Holy smokes, that stuff was like gold for awhile.

Be Ready with Vehicle 72 Hour Kits Words such as “extreme misfortune, ruin, and tragedy” are often used in conjunction with the word “disaster.” It is a fearful word that often catches a person off guard and unprepared when they are in the middle of it. But the word “evacuate” conjures up thoughts of mass chaos, confusion, crowded highway systems and fear. Emergency first aid checklist: Herbs, medicines and tools for holistic medical safety in any crisis (NaturalNews) In the aftermath of superstorm Sandy, which has devastated many parts of the East coast, we've been receiving a flood of calls and emails asking about emergency preparedness items for first aid and natural medicine.
