Survival

All posts tagged Survival

The wealth and prosperity of our Country is rapidly declining at an alarming rate.  The policies of those in government has driven America deep into debt. We have also lost our manufacturing capabilities.  The majority of our products are produced in China.

As the US declines, China is rising. China has now surpassed the US as the strongest economy.  We are in serious trouble.

It is unfortunate that much of the younger generation does not understand the extent to which our nation has declined in prosperity.  In the golden age, a working husband was able to supply enough money to purchase a new home, a new car, food on the table, clothing, entertainment, and have enough to put money in the bank.  Over a period of time, it required both the husband and the wife to work. But they were still relatively prosperous. The slow decline in prosperity, however, continued.  Today, it takes both the husband’s and wife’s income just to make ends meet.  They are also often working harder, longer hours, and sometimes two jobs.

Even with two incomes, many are unable to pay the bills. As a result, millions of America’s have lost their homes.  As the decline continues, it will be impossible to make ends meet.  We will all become slaves to the elite, international bankers.  American citizens have become chattel property.  The decline in prosperity has also put a heavy debt burden on every American man, women, and child.  Eventually we will lose all our prosperity along with our freedom and liberty.

Once they collapse the United States and totally destroy our  Constitution, they will create their global one world government.  Unless we resist, we will all be sucked up into their international empire as lowly slaves – if they allow us to live.

Many are hoping that a new President will save America.  It is good to be hopeful, but I would not hold my breath.  I recommend that you keep on prepping.  Buy the equipment, gear, supplies, and other items you need in order to survive.  It is also a good time to keep honing your survival skills.

As a self defense and firearm instructor, I also recommend that you start training more seriously.  It is hard to imagine, but a radical extremist attacked several women at their place of employment and decapitated one of them.  How could this happen in America?  And obama wants to disarm us.

Keep training and learn how to defend yourself and your loved ones, lives may depend on it.

Unless something is done our Nation will be doomed. Let’s hope for the best and prepare for the worse.

In part one of the World’s Greatest Survival Vest, you are shown how useful a survival vest can be. In part two, the use of a survival vest in a urban survival situation will be covered. In part three, we will compare a survival vest to a tactical vest.

A survival vest is part of a system. When implemented with key components on your belt, and in your pockets, the vest will provide you with all the tools you need in a survival situation – especially if you are separated from your backpack. A survival vest is about redundancy, having more than you need and following the philosophy that two is one, and one is none.

The World’s Greatest Survival Vest is made by Allen, and s a tough vest with multiple pockets and compartments. It holds plenty of gear. It is made well out of a material that does not sag and can handle a heavy load.  I overloaded the vest with tons of survival gear for illustration purposes. The gear you see is not exactly what I might carry.  In part two, I have a different load out.

The survival vest (Allen Big Horn fishing vest) can also be utilized with a day pack or a full size backpack or military ruck. The vest rides high and does not interfere with the waist best on a pack.

The World’s Greatest Survival Vest offers another option for survivalists, backpackers, and preppers.

Part two will highlight the survival vest in an urban survival setting. Part three will contrast and compare the survival vest to a tactical vest.

As a prepper with over 35 years of intensive experience, I enjoy meeting new people and giving them insight into the reality of prepping and how to survive cataclysmic and long-term, protracted disasters.

In recent years, in part due to an incompetent White House administration and a failing economy, there has been a sharp increase in learning how to prepare for many believe will be a SHTF (shit hit the fan) situation.

With this increased interest in prepping has come a plethora of information, and misinformation, regarding the topic of prepping and survival. My job is to help straighten out the mess and give people sound information. I have done this through video, live seminars, training other preppers to become instructors, and private consultations. I am a professional prepper and will work under legal contractual agreement.

My specialties include designing and building Gen 4 Survival Retreats, retreat security, advanced bug out strategies, long-term food storage, water procurement, energy production, self defense strategies, and more.

I will be speaking and holding seminars across the nation this summer including stops in major cities in Florida. If you want to meet new preppers and survivalists, and learn more about prepping, I recommend that you can join our meetup group.

Sometimes I get tired of the negativity around me. There are plenty of people in the world, on forums, and youtube, who are impossibility thinkers. To them, if they can’t do it, they think it’s impossible. Well I’m a possibility thinker. I do what I set out to do and don’t let things deter me. I encourage preppers to think positive.

Along with thinking positive and being a possibility thinker, I try to be thankful and grateful in all circumstances.

Survival is more of an attitude than a collection of gear and equipment. I have designed and build elaborate survival retreats. However, if the individuals do not train, have negative attitudes, they will not survive.

With the right mind set, the right attitude, you can and will survive.

God bless you,

Here’s a video of me in the North Carolina mountains at my getaway house. This is not my survival retreat. (ipad users can view video at: youtube video

A thank you to all my subscribers who have been patient. Have been in the mountains camping, backpacking, practicing survival skills, shooting, and prepping.

I have not posted in over 5 months. This is a blog update for my subscribers to keep them informed. The North Carolina mountain house is just a fun getaway house and location – it is not my survival retreat.

My schedule have been hectic and blogging has not been a top priority, but I plan to do more. I have a lot of survival gear, firearms, knives, and other stuff to review. Also want to share survival, prepping, tactical defense skills, and other skills.

I appreciate your support and plan on doing more blogging. Thank You

The mudjam is a great place to view and inquire about the details of building a bug out vehicle capable of operating effectively off road. There were so many potential bug out vehicle BOV concepts that it boggles the mind. If you are a prepper, you certainly can see the potential capabilities that these vehicles have. You are also aware of the need for a bug out vehicle.

The Saint Lucie Mudjam 2013 is located in Saint Lucie County, Florida. It is a 3 day event held on 500 acres. The event featured mud racing, mud bogs, music, camping, bonfires, and a great time for everyone. The girls got a little “wild” at night.

This is a great place to view and inquire about the details of building a bug out vehicle capable of operating effectively off road.

Because I messed up and ran my batteries down, I only video taped part of the races, and a few vehicles in the parking area. I did not shoot the Mud Bogs, music, bonfire and other wild events. Hope you enjoy the vid and hope to see you there next time.

The Zero Tolerance 300 ST is an exceptional knife. It’s extremely rugged and reliable. The ZT is razor sharp and as as tough as a tank. This knife lives up to the ZT goal of “Zero Tolerance in design, Zero Tolerance in function and Zero Tolerance in performance.” It is a beautiful knife that performs exemplary in its role of a combat/prepper knife. (ipad users can view video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aA3aWLTUqus

The Zero Tolerance 300 ST is quite capable of fulfilling multiple roles of a combat, survival, and utility blade. This knife is suitable for active military personal, law enforcement, and fire fighters. It is also a great knife for preppers. Bottom line, this knife is reliable and capable.

The ZT is a relatively large knife with a 3.75 inch blade and weighs in at 8 ounces. It is not for whimps.

I have owned this knife for over 8 months and have also used it as a concealed carry defensive blade. The ZT has not failed or disappointed me in any way. I personally love the knife and am completely satisfied with the purchase, even though I paid top dollar. It was love at first sight, and I just had to have it. I could have saved money if I would have shopped around.

I give the Zero Tolerance 300 St an overall value rating of 10 out of ten points.

Thank you for watching.

God Bless You.

The Coleman MAX is a great daypack and hydtration system at a value price. With 2,200 cubic inches it can hold a lot of gear for a day out on the trail. It also includes a hydration system that actually works. It’s another Walmart good deal. I give this pack a thumbs up for usefulness and value. (ipad users can view video at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wvvCqZK9gi8

The pack is also excellent for urban use without drawing undue attention. Of course it’s not a BOB for most preppers due to its small size and lack of full support and hip belt. It’s not intended for heavy loads or long trips

The pack is great for short hikes, day excursions, and perhaps a night or two of camping in fair weather. Bottom line, its a great little daypack at a value price.

In the near futureI hope to review and make a video on BOBs bug out bags and bugging out.

God Bless You

I love the KA-BAR and have owned a small collection of them as a small kid. They are great knives. In fact, the KA-BAR is a standard of excellence by which I judge other survival defensive knives.

The KA-BAR is a proven knife that has been used in combat and survival situations since adopted by the United States Marine Corps in November 1942 as the 1219C2 combat knife (later designated the USMC Mark 2 combat knife or Fighting Utility Knife).

In my top 3 survival tools video, I compared the KA-BAR to other knives and choose the Cold Steel Recon Scout as the knife I would carry with me. This does not discredit the KA-BAR. I would very easily and successfully use a KA-BAR to fulfill any and all prepping needs. However, reality dictates that there are other and better knife choices for specific purposes and needs.

If your prepping budget does not allow for more expensive knives, consider the KA-BAR as your choice of blades. As stated it is proven. It is a knife that works. It is a knife that will not let you down. The Ka Bar is a great and classic knife.

Smith & Wesson Knife Review by Patriot Prepper

ipad users can view the video at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KX5uEr319pw

Smith & Wesson Knife is acknowledged as one of the greatest gun makers in the world. But how do Smith & Wesson knives stack up when compared to other blades? In this in-depth review, Patriot Prepper gives you the low down on S & W knives.

Patriot Prepper owns over 30 Smith and Wesson knives and has used some of them on a daily basis. With the low cost of their knives, it is possible to have multiple blades to place in bug out bags, vehicles, your home, and your retreat.

Smith & Wesson knives are designed for tactical use, but are highly usable in a utility role. In the personal opinion of Patriot Prepper, the quality of S & W knives are not on par with S & W guns. They are very good knives but not exceptional.

The designs are pleasing, the features very good, but consistency in the quality control leave the knives lacking when it compares to S & W greatness. With a little effort, the blades could be tweaked by S & W into a high end competitive blade. But what the heck, S & W blades are priced RIGHT!

In there niche, S & W seem to own the market, with few competitors competing in their price bracket with all the ruggedness and features of their knives. This of course could be disputed.

All and all, the knives in this review can be rated overall between 6 and 7 points on a 10 scale. They are very good knives.

On a price/value ratio, the knives rate higher, due to their low cost. For value, the knives are rated 9 on average.

Patriot Prepper loves S & W knives and believe they could fulfill the needs of a prepper who is on a budget. They are rugged, durable, and will perform when needed.

God Bless
