This is a short video showing what I carry with me every day in my EDC Bag. My EDC pack is geared to help me get home as well as what I might need during the day so I call it my EDC/Get-Home Bag.

Building A Blackout Kit

Thinking about building a blackout kit? In this article, I’ll go over some of the preps we have in place to make life a little more bearable when the power inevitably goes out.

This is the second and final post in the two-part series of – Building A Blackout Kit. See part one here: An Emergency Generator.

The Prepping Dilemma. Preppers Will Be Overrun – By Family And Friends When SHTF

I’ve been blogging for 14 years so I know what I want to achieve when I write a blog post. I failed miserably with this one. The Prepping Dilemma.

You see, there’s no solution here. Nothing I can teach. In fact, I doubt this article will help you at all.  How’s that for marketing? 🙂

I wrote this post for myself.

I debated for weeks whether or not to even publish this. It’s too long. It’s full of questions and has no concrete answers. I did zero SEO (Fellow bloggers that know what that means) and don’t even have a keyword or phrase to focus on. No, it was just me typing away trying to get my mind to wrap around a huge dilemma that’s been bothering me for years.
