the mental state

A lot of times media sources in the emergency preparedness industry focus on gear and equipment and skills and lessons needed to help you through a disaster or unplanned situation where your life is at risk. These are good things, of course. Without skills, know-how, or reliable equipment, survival is made that much more difficult.Being prepared is the exercises we do to better handle stressful situations. We plan for failure. We plan for disaster. We focus on the various possible outcomes of any given circumstance and then surround ourselves with information, technology, and gear that will better our station during those trying times. Having a plan can help you stay calm and feel more in control, especially when you might not have any control over a stressful situation. However, you…

i survived

Loyal UnderdogPint - sized pooch saves woman from vicious black bear attack!It was early evening when 51-year-old Melinda LeBarron went out on the porch with her Chihuahua, affectionately called Bear, for a quick smoke. She knew that her neighbors had seen a black bear with cubs in the area, but the early winter air was chilly and, after all, most bears were already hibernating. But it wasn’t long before LeBarron heard her pup bark a warning.“The next thing she knew, she was on the ground getting slammed around,” said her son of the incident. A black bear had sliced into LeBarron’s scalp and was now dragging her into the woods. LeBarron began to fight back with everything she had. “She was punching the bear and everything.”But the bear wouldn’t stop,…

• the intelligence choice

North Americans have access to virtually infinite sources of growing print and electronic information. Exploiting this excess can lead to being well informed or to experiencing information overload. We read, view and hear news often during a day, yet for acquiring actionable intelligence—relevant, practical and timely—quality beats quantity. But how important is timely intelligence?Perhaps the first question to ask is “Why do you need timely intelligence at all?” You have a garden, water-purification gear, stored food, a generator, trade goods, plus guns and ammunition for defense. You’ve also determined the disaster scenarios that you’re likely to encounter in your location; you’ve sacrificed luxuries to get where you are. But timely intelligence is key to surviving when events become critical. And because intel is precious and perishable, you’ll need to stay…

your new “plus one”

In the field it is easy enough to pump the handle in this fashion for eight to ten strokes or so to bring pressure back up after firing a few rounds. For a lengthy fill I recommend sitting down and laying the gun bottom up in your lap and working the handle. At one point I had to do 90 pumps to get the gun up to 2800 psi.Survival. It’s something we are all concerned about, especially if you find yourself in a situation were everything starts to go south. And it doesn’t have to be anything nefarious to do with politics or foreign governments (not that it can’t happen or hasn’t, that’s how world wars start). But nature can be just as deadly and even less predictable. Life can…
