Your new girlfriend comes over for the first time and when she walks into the living room, the first thing that she sees is your collection of protest posters. You have more pets and plants then your landlord knows. Your dream vacation is walking into the woods, with only a knife... for days. You think Global Warming and TEOTWAWKI mean the same thing. You vote for the Green Party, but call yourself an anarchist. You worry about the extinction of every living thing on the planet, Read more [...]

I love sayings. Quotes, Wisdoms, Psalms, Proverbs, and even puns. I guess that is why Robert A. Heinlein quote rests as my banner on this blog. One of the sayings I often use is “The only thing we learn from history, is that we don’t learn from history.” (paraphrased from Winston Churchill) It’s true though, no matter what way it is phrased, or said, we tend to learn nothing from the past. Part of that is due to the fact the history is only really written by the winners, the other is that Read more [...]

Last Updated: Jan 10th 2019 OK, here it is, my book wish list. It is not by any means complete, although very long, but I will try to update it as time goes on.

Please note this article is about water storage tips. Purification of water is a different topic, although I do touch the topic here a bit. Tip #1 Know Your Containers Not all containers are created equal. Whether the container you wish to store water in is something you can place in your Bug Out Bag, or bury underground at your retreat, the material that it made from is as important as the purity of the water it holds. Plastics: Plastics that are safe to store water in must be food grade safe, Read more [...]

Secret Messages And Secure Communications Part 1
This post grew on me, so I have broken it up into parts. – Wolfe No one can stand alone. I know there is a common mind set amongst survivalists that we are a hardy set of individuals, but you can not keep watch twenty four hours a day on your own. Even if all you are relying on are close family members, there are security issues that you should consider. I have a poll up on my blog here as to which ‘how to guide’ I should write first, and so far lock picking has reached the top. However, Read more [...]

I just finished reading a post on Wolf Tracks by Shy Wolf, in which he goes into great detail on how to sharpen a knife. The reason he did this post was in reply to a post on M.D. Creekmoore's survival site. I really like not only the post, but the fact that Shy went out of his way to point out that idea behind the post came from a question on Creekmore's site, so in hopes of starting a trend among prepper bloggers, besides the fact that I am packing like a crazed lunatic to move to the farm, Read more [...]

Dan ... I got a question for you. For the past five months, I've been seriously researching and putting together my own bug-out plan. I'm coming along nicely with my backpacks, and was gonna buy the Jason Richards books from the site for $27 (Ultimate Food Shortage Survival) to pack even lighter, but wanted to get your opinion on it first. I've checked reviews online, blogs... seems legit... I can also find the book on Amazon for $10, but he's offering another 2 or 3 along with it on his website, Read more [...]

I have a passion for encryption and security culture issues. I’ve been working on a system to to hide encrypted message, as in hide the fact that it’s encrypted to begin with. I call it stegtext after the photo version which is called steghide. Recently I’ve been messing around with rotating cyphers, and came up with a really simple way to do it in php. A simple example of a rotating cypher key encryption program written in php. – wolfe   Message: We are the hollow men We Read more [...]

This blog post is a bit of reverse self-promoting, hosting costs for this site are covered via project wonderful, and I really appreciate any incoming links. It turns out that like Hollow Men there is another story in the works about the end of the world, and the author is keeping a blog about her progress over at Everyday Inklings, I’m on her research list . It turns out that I was just in the middle of doing some research on the health care of farm animals, in fact I just picked up a book over Read more [...]
