The Foolishness and Fallacy of Not Making Your Retreat Defendable

An awkward issue that preppers have to confront when planning for a possible problematic future is what to expect from other people. Will people peacefully unite and work together effectively to create win-win examples of mutual survival?  Or will some group of society (maybe only a small minority) take advantage of a possible collapse of law-enforcement and in an anarchistic manner run amok in an orgy of looting, pillaging and plundering? Opinions differ greatly as […]

A Prepper's Introduction to Walkie-Talkie Radios

The author of the article was talking about how […]

If you found yourself suddenly gifted with several million dollars, and assuming you had some left over after spending money on all the usual things, maybe you might choose to treat yourself to a really neat vehicle to stick in your retreat’s garage. The issue of successfully defending your retreat against armed attackers post-WTSHTF is one of considerable debate.  Some people choose to ignore the issue entirely, and claim they have no need for serious […]
