Prepping For Beginners

When you go to the store and buy enough food to last a few days you are already prepping for the future, everyone in some fashion is already a prepper, what most people think prepping is all about is just the same thing really, we just prepare for a longer time period. Welcome to Prepping 101, enjoy!

Food - Water - Shelter

The three key items to focus on in order to survive are Food, Water, and Shelter, without any one of these three items your chance of survival is limited. Preparing for the unknown is very challenging at times, however, if done right should be lots of fun for the whole family! Always keep it fun.

Bugging-Out Emergency Plans

So you have decided you want to be prepared just in case something were to happen, welcome to the club of millions of Americans that have decided to be prepared as well, what now, how do we get started?

Fire Starting

There are lots of ways to start a fire, simple Bic lighter, Metal Match (Needs lighter fluid), Bow Drill, Flint & Steel, Fire Piston, Magnesium, Ferrocerium, and even a Magnifying Lens just to name a few.

Our basic instinct of Self-preservation is the driving force behind what we do to survive, throughout human history we have learned that survival may very well depend on working together as a group, call them gangs, mobs, or clans over time it has been proven to be the best method for survival. Clans will most certainly rule the territories, some will work to produce food and other necessities and others will find those items by looting neighboring clans, the new way of life will be shocking to many.




 Chinaships2alerts   Breaking News: Talks between the United States and China ended shortly after they started, a source tells us that China is demanding the United States disclosed the locations of all Virginia-class attack submarines, China has long insisted that these submarines are patroling very near the Chinese coastal waters.

  China has warned the United States not to send ships into the South China Sea, as Japan's Self-Defense Force helicopter carrier Kaga and destroyers Inazuma and Suzutsuki sail with the USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier and two other U.S. warships heading to the South China Sea.

(No this story is not real, however with trade talks, the new EMP systems designed by Raytheon, Russia building EMP weapons, we can be sure that China has them as well.)





“Nine of 10 Americans will be dead from starvation, disease, and societal collapse. The United States of America ceases to exist,” warned the report declassified by recently decommissioned U.S. Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Attack. The report, written by EMP expert Peter Vincent Pry, revealed EMP war plans drawn up by Iran, Russia, China, North Korea, and even ISIS.




Our post EMP conflict model.

  Living in a post EMP conflict world will be difficult at first however in a somewhat short period of time things will begin to settle down, many believe that as much as 90% of the population will die, our model has it more likely to be around 70% to 80% with the highest numbers of loss as high as 90% in and around the larger cities, much of the East Coast, California, Great Lakes areas, and the large cities throughout the country will be devastated. States like Wyoming, Montana, North Dakota, Idaho, Wisconsin, parts of Colorado, Utah, and other states with an abundance of wildlife and open areas could be as low as 35% to 50% with access to food being a key factor.

  Before we go any deeper let's look at some history, during WWII the Japanese didn't invade the United States West Coast, Isoroku Yamamoto was quoted for saying:Isoroku Yamamoto "In the first six to twelve months of a war with the United States and Great Britain I will run wild and win victory upon victory. But then, if the war continues after that, I have no expectation of success". He also said: "It is not enough that we take Guam and the Philippines, nor even Hawaii and San Francisco. To make victory certain, we would have to march into Washington and dictate the terms of peace in the White House and Japan was not prepared to make the necessary sacrifices. The reason he felt this way was that the cost to invade a heavily armed populated country was more than politicians and the Japanese people were willing to accept!

  Precisely six months after the attack on Pearl Harbor, the Japanese navy would suffer a major defeat at the Battle of Midway, from which it never recovered.  Marshal Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto died on April 18, 1943, he never saw the end of the war, but his words will always live on. The surrender of Imperial Japan was announced by Hirohito on August 15 and formally signed on September 2, 1945.




Who did it and are they done?

  As long as we don't do something crazy and stupid like take away all our guns we should still be fine, let say China sent EMP weapons striking the United States, we should have also returned fire inflicting the same or worse damage to China, with nukes this is called Mutual Assured Destruction, this is not acceptable for neither side and making it a great doctrine of reciprocal deterrence. With the new EMP weapons, everything will still be intact but sending the countries about 150 years backward and into a new dark age. Now, will other countries take the opportunity to assist or to conquer?  Will Russia invade our shores, Iran maybe? As long as the American people are still armed the necessary sacrifices to do so might still be too great to accept. 


Types of EMP weapons that are most common.

  There are three main types of EMP's E-1, E-2, and E-3, If you would like to know more about these specific types and the details and effects please check out this archived article by Jerry Emanuelson, B.S.E.E.

How Will The United States Survive

  To be honest, most military assessments show that the United States would no longer exist if we were attacked, one assessment went deeper and said that there was only an 82% chance and falling that the United States would counter strike any nation that had attacked us. The low percentage is mostly because it is thought that the attack would come from submarines off our coast and it would be hard to identify exactly who fired the rockets. If the United States does not strike back more likely than not, the country will be invaded and under a new rule.

  A large attack would most likely also affect a large part of Canada and Mexico, while the homeland may be attacked it is unlikely that our Navy and other offshore military bases will have been destroyed as well. Will NATO or our other allies come to our aid or will they hide in the shadows?
