We are very sad to have to announce the sudden and unexpected passing of a great man, Ron Hood on June 22, 2011. Nearly two-thirds of the 1930's Dust Bowl inhabitants hunkered down and lived through a time when there was "no food from the land, no jobs during the Depression, no money from taxpayers. When you have to know you can start a fire when you need one, FireSteel.com FireSteels are the way to go. There is a dark side to “survivalism” that nobody ever talks about. I’ve never seen it in print. I’ve never seen anyone even discuss it over a campfire.

The Fantastic Four – 4 Essential Wild Edible Plants that May Just Save Your Life Did you realize that knowing just 4 wild edible plants could one day save your life? If there were any four categories of plants that I would recommend all people to know how to use and identify it would be these: Grass, Oak, Pine, and Cattail. For the knowledgeable survivor, knowing just these four plants can make the difference between life and death if stranded in the wilds – for each one is an excellent food source which can sustain you until help arrives. Throughout this week and part of the next, I’ll be going into details on how you can prepare and eat these plants. For now though, here’s a quick overview into what they have to offer: Grass Wilderness Survival Generally speaking, "survival" falls into one of two broad categories: Staying alive until help arrives and you're rescued Living in the wilderness as a way of life The emphasis here is mostly on the second approach, although the two overlap, of course. The first approach would include, for example, how to utilize your vehicle for helping you to stay alive, advice on whether you should try to hike out back to civilization or not, and so on. There's very little of that kind of material here (at least so far). The focus here is on living in the wilderness in a primitive fashion.

Invisible Web: What it is, Why it exists, How to find it, and Its inherent ambiguity What is the "Invisible Web", a.k.a. the "Deep Web"? The "visible web" is what you can find using general web search engines. It's also what you see in almost all subject directories. The "invisible web" is what you cannot find using these types of tools. The first version of this web page was written in 2000, when this topic was new and baffling to many web searchers. Since then, search engines' crawlers and indexing programs have overcome many of the technical barriers that made it impossible for them to find "invisible" web pages.

Survival UK By Skean Dhude Hi, Welcome to this site. A survival site that is biased towards survival in the UK. Be it simply living in a more sustainable manner in our economic climate or living through some natural or political event. You never know what the future hold and we are already tightening our belts due to political incompetence. Vanishing Point: How to disappear in America without a trace Where there's water, life is possible. True, it may be very difficult and very hard to live, depending, but anyone who's driven, hiked, or camped in the American South West will have noticed that cities and ranches crop up where there's surface water or where there's been a well dug. Within the state of California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, New Mexico, and Colorado, there are deserts, mesas, mountains, and forests where normally people never or rarely visit; not-so-secret places where there's water, access to a road within a day's hike, and where a fairly rugged individual may hide while remaining basically healthy, marginally well fed, and reasonably sane. In this section I'll look at two such environments, neither of which I would recommend, but one of which I'd suggest is a reasonable way to live in basic health while either on the run, hiding out from the law, old girl friends, the draft for an illegal war, putative wives and such.

Survival Seeds - Advice from an Avid Gardener, by Mrs. W Friday, Nov 12, 2010 I have watched with some concern as the survival seed business has exploded these past few years. Advertisements abound for survival garden seed buckets that cost upwards of $100 and promise a years supply of food for a family. Since most Americans have never grown more than a few tomato plants they are unaware that many of these claims are overblown.
