Basic Survival Tips Author: Jeff Durham - Updated: 22 April 2014| Comment If you regularly spend time in the woods, wilderness, mountains, on water or in any other places in which you may be faced with emergencies and may have to rely on your ability for survival, it's important to know what to do and what your priorities should be. In fact, it's useful to enrol on even the most basic of survival courses as they will help you become more prepared should you find yourself in a real 'life or death' survival situation.

Pseudo-Currency: Items You Can Trade Like Cash Or Use Yourself if the Balloon Goes Up, by Scott in Wisconsin Sunday, Jul 11, 2010 If the power grid fails for a weekend, dollar bills will always be accepted. And I think it's a good idea to keep at least $500 on hand in your home, in $5 and $10 denominations. But what happens if things really fall apart? What if an EMP knocks out all our electronic infrastructure? What if hyper-inflation destroys the value of those dollar bills you've tucked away? What if a virus sweeps the country, and kills millions? Suddenly, you may have no choice but to barter for what you need. How often will the guy with goat you want, need the generator you have to trade? And how will you buy small items, like a dozen eggs, or a pail of milk, without a good substitute for currency? Silver and gold may step in and function as a true replacement currency. But you can't eat silver, or drink silver. I believe that, when dollars stop working, some new, useful items will begin to function as currency – a pseudo-currency, like cigarettes do in prison movies! Candles. Seeds.

Homemade Microgram Electrobalance by Shawn Carlson, Scientific American, June 1996 Microgram balances are clever devices that can measure fantastically tiny masses. Top-of-the-line models employ an ingenious combination of mechanical isolation, thermal insulation and electronic wizardry to produce repeatable measurements down to one tenth of a millionth of one gram. With their elaborate glass enclosures and polished goldplated fixtures, these balances look more like works of art than scientific instruments. New models can cost more than $10,000 and often require a master's touch to coax reliable data from background noise. But for all their cost and outward complexity, these devices are in essence quite simple. And that is good news for amateurs. George Schmermund of Vista, Calif., made this fact clear to me. Schmermund already owns four expensive commercial microgram balances. The precision of the measurements is quite impressive. The crucial component, the galvanometer, is easy to come by.
Why Are Millions Of Americans Preparing For Doomsday? All over America, there are millions of Americans that are quietly preparing for doomsday. They are turning spare rooms into long-term food storage pantries, they are planting survival gardens, they are converting their homes over to alternative sources of energy, they are taking self-defense courses and they are stocking up on just about anything you can imagine. They are called "preppers", and their numbers have absolutely exploded in recent years. In fact, you might be living next door to one and never even realize it. So what exactly are all these people so concerned about? Well, the truth is that you will never find two preppers that are exactly alike. Of course an economic collapse is one of the biggest concerns for preppers, and without a doubt the U.S. economy is deeply troubled. But it isn't just preppers that are concerned about these things. A recent survey conducted by National Geographic asked Americans the following question.... These were the results.... It got worse.

The Fab Four: How to survive on wheat, dry milk, honey and salt A Countryside Staff Report from the March/April, 1999 issue of Countryside & Small Stock Journal One common food storage program (particularly among Mormons) involves just four basic commodities: wheat, powdered milk, honey and salt. While this might not sound very exciting, it’s enough to keep body and soul together, and as such is of special interest not only to people interested in a food reserve, but to those who grow their own wheat. In her 1969 book Passport to Survival, (Bookcraft Inc, Salt Lake City, Utah) Esther Dickey lists recipes for over a hundred ways to use these four basic foods! We’re not talking about recipes for bread and other baked goods, of which there are probably thousands. No, we’re talking about steamed wheat, bulgur wheat, sprouts, “cereals without boxtops,” mock walnut meats, wheat thins, teas, soups, and even desserts and candies! She makes chow mein with gluten cubes (see page 44), stew broth (also made from wheat, although you could use bouillon cubes thickened with gluten water) and wheat sprouts (see page 56). Or how about mock chicken legs? Pasta
