Japanese Govt Urges Citizens to Stockpile One Month Toilet Paper Supply

A little known side effect of the March 2011 earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear power plant problems in Japan was a shortage of toilet paper that affected the entire country. Japan has had toilet paper shortages before, back in the oil crisis of 1973 (you never thought that expensive and scarce oil would create a toilet paper shortage, did you!) and so the nation has become particularly sensitized to the potential of future shortages.  As a […]

Are the Feds Secretly Preppers?

Although there are plenty of people who are concerned that the Feds are indeed secretly preparing for future problems (ie, not in the way we might wish and hope for), maybe we should also be pleased to learn of such things.  Is it possible the Feds have both a bug-out plan and also a distant safe retreat for us all?  Or, at least, for some lucky souls among us?

The Government - More Ready to Help Us than Ever Before

A Reader Writes :  Prepping for African-Americans on a Very Low Budget

We received an interesting email from a reader – let’s call him Bill.  He writes : My family and I are well aware of what is coming down the pike in terms of serious unrest due to a collapsed society.  However we are barely making it financially due to low paying jobs and we have no savings.

It is now exactly a year since our site went live. It has been a busy year, with everything from the massive non-event of the prophesized end of the world on Dec 21, 2012 to a Presidential election, the result of which some people feel brought us closer to the end of the world as we know it than anything on Dec 21!
