Knife sharpening tricks:

Every get a three a.m. call to go and sharpen someones kitchen knives for them?

No, people just ignore that knives should be sharp and then remain baffles about how hard food prep is.

You also don't really want a dull knife in a fight.

Here are some tips I found.

How to use car batteries for emergency arc welding:

I've never welded anything in my life, but it makes sense to figure out how!

A lot of things that break could be fixed with similar techniques and half of saving money is fixing what you have at need.

Remember to be safe:

Something that the special forces teach their members is to review whenever possible.

A fact or procedure fresh in mind (recently gone over) will give you about 20% higher positive results (better performance) than if you just count on knowing something.

This works all the time, and even though I personally doubt that this 9-11 ten year anniversary will really lead to an attack, we shouldn't forget that a little "Pear Harbor" action could really rally the country right now...

So review and make sure you have water collected, your preps as ready as you can and your eyes open.

Cooking over an open fire:

Just having a fire isn't the whole story, is it? What to do with it is just as important.

You can just stick some meat on a stick or hang a pot, but learning the needed distances and when to stir are essential too!

Here's the problem with groups.

You're very likely not going to have much warning. You're going to get stuck with your neighbors in most cases. So if your neighbors are not prepared as you are, you will either need to hide your goods or share it and lose everything. The chances your neighbors are setup for doom are not good. The first few weeks people will continue to put out their garbage as if its going to get picked up.

By the end of those weeks, shit is going to be tough. You will see looting the second people see they're on their own. So anyone who doesn't get to that food early is screwed. You will see roving bands of people within the first two weeks. You better hope you don't live near a bunch of democrats. You will need guns or hand over you food. You better hide your women, btw.

If you have a cabin or someplace where your family and friends have decided to meet in such situations you better look out. Travelling after the first week is going to be dangerous. You will see roadblocks. Both official and unofficial. "Official" roadblocks can still be very dangerous. Your best bet, load up and get the fuck out the cities quick.

You should keep a stash of gasoline on hand before any doom. When you tank runs dry, use that gas in your car and fill the tanks back up. You can't store gasoline indefinitely. Its better to have fresh gas on hand.

Lets say you arrive at a location with your family and friends from around the state and country. I guarantee the people who live in that area are not going to be pleased. You better have strong roots in that community. New arrivals will not be welcome, especially to those in that area who are not prepared and see your food, supplies and women as items of desire.

Most urban areas will be like warzsones with mass migrations of people fleeing its retarded setup. Areas hundreds of miles outside these cities will be devastated by these hordes. Its best to be well out of the way. At night, keep your area dark. No lights. You don't want some starving gangsta wannabe to know where you are.

That's not necessarily a problem with groups, but a problem with an individuals preparations.

If you get together with a good group ahead of time, you don't have to worry as much about "being stuck with the lazy neighbors".

I'm not saying that your take is incorrect, but the basic premise can be short circuited easily by being willing to meet people before you have to.

Not easy!

Especially for people that live their lives on the interwebs.

Still, it's worth noting that groups, large groups, survive more ably than individuals or even very small groups.

It's why we form societies in the first place.

Types of emergency shelter:

OK, most people will just stay at home. This is, in the main, about economic survival, not running from the disaster or terrorists...

Still, face it, if you get really caught out and have to survive, just knowing what's possible can make a huge difference.

Scavenging food in the city or large town:

No one wants to starve to death. So go where the free food is.

Dumpsters.

This is some good advice for making the approach...

[link to matadornetwork.com]


Keep in mind basic food safety however.

Dairy is a no-no once warmed. You can risk food poisoning. Meat is in the same category, unless canned, dried or otherwise preserved.

Oddly, you can often eat the non-moldy parts of food without a problem.

Smell it first!

If it's off-putting or unfamiliar, don't eat it and remember that some large supermarket chains spray chemicals on the food to make sure no one will get it for free. (Normally just soap, thankfully.)

A dumpster is a dumpster however, so watch for broken glass, sharp metal or anything that might hurt you as you search.

Also, as an aside, don't leave a mess.

If the store doesn't have to clean up after you, their going to be a lot more likely to turn a blind eye.

Emergency cash:

The best way to make money in a down economy is to start your own, very small, service business.

Remember, even in tough times there are people with money that will pay you to do things they don't want to do themselves.

If you have tools, offering repair services is a good plan.

Lawn work is an old standby and while it won't make you rich, it's a way to keep things going.

Don't forget to sign up with temporary job agencies. A LOT of companies have fired people and how do they make up for all that loss work when they need to? Temp agencies!

Sign up with several of them and make sure you aren't picky about what your willing to do. Get there on time and work hard.

Collecting up scrap metal for sale is a good way to get fast cash. You can also sell your blood plasma if you're healthy enough. (And free of drugs)

Don't forget that you can refurbish things, old wooden tables and chairs and resell them too, if you live near a city or town. That takes a little skill, but you can learn how in a few days if your attentive.

Here are a few... more playful and less relevant, ways to make some funds fast.

 Quoting: fellowearthling


It's illegal to use a net for fishing in a lot of areas.

Which means that if it's a survival issue, the very first thing you should do is get or make a large net...

The difference is vast. I used to live on an Indian reservation and they were legally allowed to fish that way and hunt without a license. There were no rules as for what they could do either.

They didn't starve, even if they didn't have much money.

How to make a net:

More on potential DIY self-defense:

The sling shot. Not the thing David used on Goliath, but the kind Dennis the Menace never took from his pocket.

A sturdy handle, a flat but tough piece to use as a "pouch" (which should always stay as a flat piece, and fold over the projectile, to prevent catching it in the face with a carry back!)some rubber and something to shoot, which can be bolts, rocks or solid steel balls.

It takes some strength for a really powerful one, but their easily hidden and highly portable.

This video will give some information.

Setting up a barter system:
(Why you shouldn't bother with anything official.)

A lot of people will try to tell you that a good barter system is impossible, because they want to legislate it, control it and make up a method of "keeping it fair".

In real life there is one simple way of setting up a trade:

Ask for one.

Find someone that has what you want or need and suggest that, while you may not have funds, you can work, provide some other good or service, or what have you in return for it.

Not everyone will go for it, because money is seen as freedom and a trade is a very specific thing.

But a lot of people will and the harder things get the more likely it is to work for you.

Even online trades can be made that way.

It does take trust, but doesn't everything?
