    Survival: The Comprehensive guide to prepare you for a natural disaster, urban collapse, and wilderness survival

    DelMarVa Survival Trainings Daily Features

    June 2017

    June 26, 2017 - "Update" Just a note that our E-book downloads have been updated with some interesting reading material. Time to add to your library collection

    June 26, 2017 - "Survival Tip" To keep your catch of fish from drying out while transporting home wrap the fish in grass and dip the bound bundle in creek water to moisten the fish. Field dress your fish first, if you will be traveling for a long distance. The cordage for tying the bundle can be made from braided grass.

    June 26, 2017 - "Survival Skills and Survival Equipment" By Andrew Ivor. Wilderness survival used to be part of daily life. But even though we feel protected inside our modern cocoons, getting a grip on survival skills is still a smart 'just in case' set of skills to acquire. Even in today's world, survival skills are not only for the Backpacker, outdoors enthusiasts or sportsman any more. Click here

    June 26, 2017 - "Build a Basic 3 Day Survival Kit" By Stephen Dailey. Your first consideration for building a Survival Kit is what types of events you are planning for. You will most likely tailor your kit to match your specific needs and goals. I will be covering only the fundamental aspects of what you need for most events. This won't cover every event, and you can't factor in every possible scenario. However, if you have an emergency kit or basic survival kit in position you will already be better prepared than most people when catastrophe takes place. Click here

    June 26, 2017 - "Survival Tip" - I have 3 flash drives, each with duplicate files. One in the safe, one in each of our BOB's. They contain PDF files of all our "important" documents, and many of the more important survival files I have accumulated.

    June 21, 2017 - Today I received an email from a Megan Compton who stated the following: I'm writing on behalf of my Girl Scout Troop to thank you for your webpage, which we used to learn more about wilderness survival. My Scouts love this topic. We practiced some of our survival skills on a few hiking trips this fall and hope to keep challenging ourselves! Thanks for helping the troop get outdoors and learn and grow! A Scout named Anna wanted to share an article she found, that gave us information on starting fires, dangerous animals, finding water, making shelter and other topics. She thought you would like to share this article with other since our troop liked it so much. I want to encourage Anna's leadership so I thought I would pass her message on. She would love to hear what you think. Thanks again from Troop 40, Megan Compton. My response is thank you to Megan to especially to Anna for her thoughtfulness. I am sure many of our visitors will appreciate this link. Click here

    June 18, 2017 - "How to Dehydrate Strawberries" By Becki Andrus. Strawberries are probably one of the most popular fruits and even children cannot resist them. They make a great addition to any fruit salad and add that something extra to plain yogurt. Sadly these berries are only available during the warmer summer months. By dehydrating enough strawberries when they are in season however, you can enjoy this fruit for the entire year. Click here

    June 18, 2017 - "Navigating Without GPS" By Richard L Burkey. The lights are out, your vehicle has stopped in the middle of the road and it won't start. It's not the gas you just filled your tank about an hour ago. You check your smart phone and it's dead too. Something, whatever it is has taken out all electronic devices. Whether it was a coronal mass ejection (CME), or electro magnetic pulse (EMP) at the moment is irrelevant because you are two blocks from nowhere and about one hour from Last Chance Gas. Clearly you have no GPS and you are in unfamiliar territory so how the heck are going to get to your destination? Of course you are going to have to walk but the question is what route will get you there from where you are? Click here

    June 17, 2017 - "Survival Tip" Powder Milk is necessary in our pantry so many of us go online and order several number 10 cans, ending up paying about $20 each plus shipping. Stop! This is a waste of money. Merely go to Wal-Mart and purchase a box or two of the ones which come in pouches. Return home and vacuum seal each pouch then you have your milk pre-measured and ready to make.

    June 17, 2017 - "Update" Just a note that our E-book downloads have been updated with some interesting reading material. Time to add to your library collection

    June 17, 2017 - "Plan Entertainment for Emergencies" By Jerry Wilson. What Would You Do Without The Internet? No electricity, no cell coverage and no internet. What are you going to do? None of the normal conveniences or communication methods are available. To some this is the scary part of an emergency or disaster. Never mind the death and destruction. Not being able to call or text someone or surf the net is a terrifying thought all by itself. Click here

    June 17, 2017 - "Setting up A Triage" By Richard L Burkey. If tragedy strikes in a big way and you are overwhelmed by a medical emergency you may need to set up a Triage. Triage is the sorting of patients according to the urgency of their need for care. This system is used when it is not feasible to treat all patients at one time due to limitations. For instance a mass casualty situation crowded emergency rooms or even battlefield scenarios. How effectively your triage works will depend on your organization and availability of resources. You should also remember that Triage is not treatment. You are sorting patients for those who will treat them and if you do not have those medical professionals available, it could be a very long wait. Click here

    June 17, 2017 - "Zombie Apocalypse Survival Kit" By Jacobus Gouws. Zombie Apocalypse Survival Kit, do you have one? If in the event that the worst happens, you need to keep yourself and your family safe. If you are not prepared you might not be able to get what you need when the pawpaw hits the fan. Click here

    June 17, 2017 - "Water Filtration a Key to Survival" By Jerry Wilson. Technology has advanced to the point where it is possible to filter lake water and make it potable. Devices as small as a straw have been designed to drink directly from a contaminated water source and know that the water has been filtered and is safe. Click here

    June 17, 2017 - "5 Tips to Urban Warfare Survival" By David M. Kingston. According to the urban survival manual, a war that is carried out in highly populated areas such as towns, cities and metro cities is known as "urban warfare". This kind of warfare is very different to the conventional warfare in features such as planning and functioning. The unique features of urban warfare are the intricacy of the landscape and the involvement of civilians or the urban dwellers. Click here

    May 29, 2017 - "Diabetes Essential Equipment Kit" By Christos.  A Diabetes essential equipment kit will be very useful  for diabetes people. The image shown below is the final product. Let's see what it contaminations. Click here

    May 29, 2017 - "Stand alone rainwater collector" By Goetvinck. We are students industrial design and for the past 2 weeks we have been building a rain harvesting system. Our client is a community with a public garden because they don't have a private garden for themselves. The garden is a place where they can cultivate some vegetables and fruits, relax, enjoy the sun, have a BBQ and meet new people. They don't have a water supply, only a 1000l reservoir that’s filled a little every week by the city. If the city decides to stop filling the barrel they can’t water their plants on hot days. This is why we created a stand-alone rain catcher. Click here

    May 29, 2017 - "PVC Chicken Waterer" by Ugarxfish. An easy way to keep your flock watered and not have a mess with overturned water containers! Click here

    May 28, 2017 - "Update" Just a note that our E-book downloads have been updated with some interesting reading material. Time to add to your library collection

    May 28, 2017 - "What is the Best Kind of Milk for Food Storage?" Lee Flynn. I don’t think the average person realizes how much they utilize milk and dairy products. If you don’t own a milk cow or goat, in an emergency/crisis event, you might quickly wish you had access to some sort of milk. Luckily, there are options for our food storage! Click here

    May 28, 2017 - "Pocket EDC The Ultimate in Everyday Carry Convenience" By SnoMan. Everyday Carry refers to the small survival kit you carry every day, everywhere. For some people, keeping a pack at all times is just too much of a pain. Fortunately, there is a great solution — pocket carry, or pocket EDC. Click here

    May 28, 2017 - "Home Water Test Simpler Than Expected" By Linda Holliday. Up until a toxic chemical oozed into the Elk River in Charleston, W. Va., last month, we thought most pollutants could be smelled, seen or tasted. We were wrong. West Virginians are apparently fortunate that Crude MCHM (4-methylcyclohexanemethanol) smells like licorice. Otherwise, no one may have noticed the toxic chemical seeped into the public water supply. Click here

    May 28, 2017 - "Do You Follow the Herd?" Do you find yourself standing in a long line, just because everyone else is? Do you find yourself following a slow line of cars, for no good reason? If you do, you may be the victim of a very predictable and instinctual behavior. Do you follow the herd? It’s hard to break out of the normal, and try something different. Click here

    May 28, 2017 - "Try these 10 steps to help Scouts develop resilience" By Mark Ray. These days, reading, writing and arithmetic are just a few of the skills children need to learn in order to achieve success. These “three R’s” sometimes get lost in a sea of other skills, including critical thinking, multitasking, leadership and teamwork. Click here

    May 28, 2017 - "Kicking Addictions" Chicky Mama. I just did not like having to have something. Then, there was the all-important health issue that drove me to quit. So, you have many reasons to quit smoking or drinking caffeine or (fill in the blank). You want to improve your health or live longer, save money, or just don't want to be in the grips of any addiction? This advice will work for many vices, not all. If you are addicted to meth or heroin, this advice will not help. Click here

    May 28, 2017 - "The Myth of Organic Seeds" Todd Sepulveda. Today we have an excellent guest post from Nick at Whiteside Seed! There are a lot of misconceptions about organic seeds out there. Today Nick is going to shed some light on some of the most common myths of organic seeds. Click here

    May 28, 2017 - "Non-Perishables That Can Outlive You" Elise Xavier.

    April 9, 2017 - "Update" Just a note that our E-book downloads have been updated with some interesting reading material. Time to add to your library collection.

    April 9, 2017 - "How to Escape Disaster in an Urban Scenario" by Benjamin Roussey. Remember the chaos during Hurricane Katrina. Civil society broke down, there was no law and order, and looting was rampant. People were robbing from others to sustain themselves, some were even killing. What was common among everyone was the panic and not being prepared for urban survival. However, when disaster hits urban spaces, these incidents are bound to occur. Breakdown of the civil society can be dangerous and many times, life-threatening. Clcik here

    April 9, 2017 - "Homemade Vitamin C Powder Provides More Nutrition than the Store Bought Version" By PrepD. Our current diets create a platform for receiving ample amounts of nutrition, but what if that all goes away? Having proper doses of vitamin C is essential for bone, muscle, cartilage and vascular health, not mention great for our dental health and immunity system. The fact that our bodies do not make vitamin C makes this an important nutrient to have on hand. Click here

    April 3, 2017 - "How to Create Newspaper Pots" By Nancy Ondra. Start your seeds in biodegradable pots that can go directly into the ground — no transplant shock! You can grow dozens or even hundreds of new plants to fill your yard and garden with great flavors and bright color for the cost of just a few packets of seed. And you don't even need to pay for seed trays or planting pots. Grab a few sections of newspaper out of the recycling bin, and in just a few minutes, you can turn them into perfect containers for starting seeds. Click here

    April 2, 2017 - "Update" Just a note that our E-book downloads have been updated with some interesting reading material. Time to add to your library collection.

    April 2, 2017 - "Dealing With and Prepping For Martial Law" There has been a great deal on social media the last couple of days about parts, if not all of the United States seeing martial law implemented before January 20th. None of us can see around corners and only time will tell if the chatter is right the question is, should it occur what’s the best way to deal with it? Click here

If you want a versatile, strong plant that has a huge amount of uses look no further than bamboo here are 15 reasons why you should grow bamboo. Bamboo is a grass that most people assume can only grow in warmer climates (like zone 5 or above) but some of the 1,500 plus varieties are perfectly happy to grow in cooler and even cold regions surviving down to -20!

    March 23, 2017 - "Here We Go Again" By Joseph Parish. Here we are again, another uncalled for destructive and deadly act committed by Muslim extremist to innocent civilians, this time in London England. Right after the last French disaster caused by these Muslim cowards took place last year I wrote an article describing how we should have known it was going to take place but still no one is looking at the clues on the wall. I have enclosed a copy of the fall season 2010 issue of al Qaida’s pamphlet and training document entitled “Inspire” where on page 53 they describe “Mowing down” people. The writing is clearly on the wall but no one in government is reading it. I know for a fact that our security agencies obtain and read this magazine but what are they doing about it? In a word – nothing!  Click here

    "Inspire Magazine" Here is a copy of the Inspire Magazine mentioned in the article above. Click here

    March 10, 2017 - "Ways you can Determine Real from Fake Honey" By Joseph Parish. I have a friend who raises bees for their honey and he has informed me that not all honey is pure and originates from bees. There are an increasing number of fake honeys in existence today especially those jars arriving at our shores from foreign countries. With the increase in honey use these days this leaves a lot of room for less scrupulous people to sell this fake honey which is less than 100% pure. It is the intent of this article to let its readers know how to determine if the honey you just purchased is pure or fake. Click here

    March 10, 2017 - How To Turn Barrel Drums into Raised Garden Beds” Drums can be great for building raised garden beds. If you happened to have some barrel drums around collecting dust, this might be a good project for you. Just cut the drums in half and build a stand to support them. Your garden bed is than ready for some beautiful flowers or tasty vegetables.

    March 8, 2017 - "Hunting for Survival in the City When the SHTF" Wildlife in the city, well yes, and Merriam-Webster defines wildlife as living things and especially mammals, birds, and fishes that are neither human nor
    domesticated. That definition covers a lot of ground. Click here

    March 8, 2017 - "How to make sugar from your preppers retreat garden Stevia" By Amy S. A natural, calorie-free sweetener approximately 200 to 300 times as sweet as
    sugar? Sounds too good to be true, but it’s not — it’s stevia. This ultra-sweet plant originated in South America, but it’s been used in many countries for hundreds of years as a natural sweetener. Using stevia in place of sugar can cut calories and may keep your
    blood glucose level more stable, according to University of Utah Health Care. Whether you’re diabetic or just looking for a natural alternative to white sugar, saccharin or aspartame, stevia is a good choice. Click here
