From survivalblog.com: Moving Females in a SHTF Scenario
This article was very interesting, as it touched on a topic that isn’t popular but is still very important to address. Historically, women were often seen as a prize to be won in the event that a village was sacked or a convoy overrun. This wasn’t just because women tended to be smaller and less physically strong than your average raider, but also because of the obvious “rewards” available to the victors. Unfortunately, this isn’t likely to change if you encounter the modern kin of those raiding scum, so taking a look at this article will assist you in keeping everyone safe and minimizing danger. One point of particular interest was how the author focused on making all the women look androgynous with baggy clothes, hiding long hair etc in order to make your group less tempting to a distant observer.
From prep-blog.com: 7 Possible TEOTWAWKI Scenarios
This post covers a number of the more common “end of the world” ideas, ranging from natural disasters like meteorites and supervolcanoes to human-caused catastrophes like economic collapse and civil unrest. Although these scenarios are certainly less likely than, say, a hurricane or or tornado they do put you in a good mindset for being totally self-reliant. With most disasters you plan to last until “real” help arrives, with competent medical care, electricity and all the comforts and lifesaving techniques of modern life. In an End-Of-The-World scenario you have to be ready to take care of yourself for a long time, potentially decades, without help from anyone better off than you will be. This helps you to see potential weaknesses (reliance on a gas-powered generator or certain medications) and minimize them which could still be beneficial even in shorter-term disasters.
From fivegallonideas.com: 5 Gallon Bucket Cord Storage
For disasters where you’ll still have electricity, being able to use a bucket to store and protect cords could be invaluable. This article details a very simple method for turning cracked, leaking, or just spare buckets into convenient holders that help keep cables from getting tangled or lost. Not only that, but if you marked your buckets you could also use them to identify loaned cords to keep them from getting stolen as easily. A very simple trick, but one well worth looking into!
