variety is the spice of life

We use this time-honored phrase as a guiding principle when we plan each issue of American Survival Guide. Rather than focus on a single topic, we think there’s more value and appeal in packing an assortment of subjects into every edition. Here’s what you’ll find in this issue—in what might be the broadest collection of interests yet. A reader recently suggested we talk about the effects of EMPs on motor vehicles, so we asked Jim Jeffries to dive deep and let us know what we should be concerned about and how to mitigate the threats. Jim even included some interesting facts about early U.S. atomic and nuclear tests and their outcomes. 2020 has been challenging, and we wanted you to be ready ... just in case. Everyone knows about BattlBox and the great…

Winter is right around the corner, and Christmas is fast approaching. If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that we need to be prepared to take care of ourselves during extreme situations. We’ve prepared a list of new, high-quality items that are designed to do just that.

2008 emp commission report

This is an excerpt from the Report of the Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Attack, Chapter 6, “Transportation Infrastructure”: “The potential EMP vulnerability of automobiles derives from the use of built-in electronics that support multiple automotive functions. Electronic components were first introduced into automobiles in the late 1960s. As time passed and electronics technologies evolved, electronic applications in automobiles proliferated. Modern automobiles have as many as 100 microprocessors that control virtually all functions. “While electronic applications have proliferated within automobiles, so too have application standards and electromagnetic interference and electromagnetic compatibility (EMI/EMC) practices. Thus, while it might be expected that increased EMP vulnerability would accompany the proliferated electronics applications, this trend, at least in part, is mitigated by the increased application of EMI/EMC practices. “We…

winter weather wearables

There’s no other way to say it: Cold kills. When winter comes rolling in, so do frostbite and hypothermia. In order to battle these bitter-cold enemies, you need to bundle up with multiple layers of the proper protection to allow you to stay dry and warm, keeping Mother Nature’s cold touch from reaching you so you get on with the business at hand. Help can come from a variety of components, technologies and designs, as we’ve highlighted here. Layering allows you to shed or add layers depending on changes in weather, temperature and activity level. Think of layers as a sort of personal “thermostat”: Add protection to protect from cold, wind and precipitation; shed clothing when the weather improves. Whether you go with a ready-made system or create your own, here are some…

“GLOVES PROTECT YOUR HANDS AND REMIND YOU NOT TO TOUCH YOUR FACE, THUS OFFERING YOU A QUICK AND EASY WAY TO PROTECT YOURSELF WHEN CONSTANT HAND-WASHING IS NOT AN OPTION.” The world has changed. 2020 started like any other year, with fireworks lighting up the night and champagne flowing when the clock struck midnight on New Year’s Eve. A few months passed as “normal” ... then, virtually all hell broke loose. The COVID-19 pandemic began as chattering in the news about an unknown virus spreading through Wuhan, China. When the first case hit the west coast of the United States, people started to take notice. As it spread throughout the states, full panic mode began to set in. To battle this cureless enemy, people had no other choice but to both prevent this killer…
