I am not really sure this is going to apply to those of us who live in apartments.  However, I may touch on that in this post. Much of what we discuss, or I write, rather, revolves around bugging out.  As mentioned in a previous post, I was going to consider situations in the suburbs […]

by suburban October 22, 2010 Personal
Share

This is going to have nothing to do with survivalism, suburban survival, or urban survival, unless you are talking about money, and we might.  I am in sales, started a new job about 16 months ago, and my income basically relies on much of what I sell.  To say the company I work for is […]

Well, in investigating options for Bug Out Shelters, I have investigated modular homes, cabins, log cabins, earth shelters, travel trailers, campers, etc.  The one thing I have found (and not just recently) is one that is pre-built and can be shipped and dropped off right to you.  You can lease, finance, or purchase them, get […]

Build Process Into Your Preparedness

by suburban October 19, 2010 Preparedness
Share

So, yesterday, on The Survival Mom’s blog, she had a post on “What SurvivalMom Can Learn from Starbucks” about survival or prepping.  I read it with interest, because I try to think outside the box when it comes to my prepping and other areas in my life.  It helps me to justify what I am doing as […]
