Today we’re taking a look at some survival knowledge from across the web as well as including some helpful commentary to assist you in choosing which ones to read!
From thesurvivaldoctor.com: Why It’s Possible to Drown in a Dry Parking Lot
This was a very interesting article and also chock full of excellent information that could very well save lives in an emergency. Most of us tend to think of drowning as ocurring only when you’re in the water. If you can get out safely and if you’re breathing, you should be fine right? Apparently not, as this post points out that it is very possible to “drown” even on dry land! Including not only how this occurs but also the proper treatment both when hospitals are around and when they aren’t, this post comes highly recommended. In particular, parents with children or any preppers who live near lakes, rivers or oceans should give this a look!
From prepforshtf.com: Preppers, Dealing With Garbage
Garbage ain’t sexy, but it is a very important part of your survival preparations and this post offers a number of solutions to the problem. Although you’ll probably be reusing a lot more than you’ll be throwing away, there are always things that have no other use (bones in meat, banana peels, moldy bread, rusty metal or ruined cans) that will need proper disposal when you don’t have a friendly trash truck rolling in to cart it away. This article offers a lot of interesting options, ranging from setting it on fire (apparently not as easy as it sounds) to composting (sadly only suitable for organic materials) in order to reduce the garbage that will inevitably pile up over time. In addition, there are also some helpful tips on minimizing the chance for disease or rodent infestation while you’re getting rid of the garbage that feeds them. Give this post a look and see what you’ll need!
From theprepperjournal.com: Is an RV the Best Bug Out Vehicle?
This is an interesting concept, and this post covers the practicality of an RV quite well. Having spent time in an RV for awhile myself, I would question just how useful they would be after a few months of use when things like electric lights and such are no longer usable in the cabin. However, some of the options offered in the article seem to provide a much better and more rugged ride, perhaps sufficient for a prepper to use for several months. Regardless, it would seem that you would probably need another option for a truly long term solution. Check this article and see what you think.
