Gear Review- Head For the Hills Bug-Out Bag

Posted By on November 22, 2014

I just received my Head For The Hills bug-out bag from Survival Bags Inc. Yes, they’re our newest sponsor, but I’m not exaggerating when I tell you I don’t know how they’re making money off of this unit. This Bag which sells for $59.95 is chock full of survival essentials you need to stay alive. This has 12 units of water, 2 emergency food bars, 2400 calories each, a head lamp, toilet paper, magnesium fire starter, para-cord, poncho, 3 N95 face masks, survival blanket, first aid kit with a whistle, tooth paste, tooth brush and a very nice Mossy Oak bag.

This covers all the survival basics. If you are a new prepper and don’t have much money to get started, this is the way to go. Even if you have the Cadillac bug-out bag, the Head For The Hills bag is perfect to keep in your car. It also makes a great Christmas gift for family members that haven’t gotten around to putting together a bag yet.

Even if you get it with the intentions of upgrading your gear later as you go, several components of this bag will always be with you. The toilet paper is off the roll, so it conserves space. The poncho, emergency blanket and food bars are also big space savers.

The para-cord looks to be 550 lb test, so that can’t really be upgraded.  Likewise, the magnesium fire starter is top quality and is always going to be an essential survival tool.

The bag, itself is well-made with a large main pocket, medium front pocket and two zippered small side pockets. I don’t think you could put this bag together yourself for under $60, so why spend the time.

Judging from the value of this bag, I’d guess that all of the pre-packed bug-out bags from Survival Bags Inc are going to be great deals.

God bless and happy prepping,

MDG

Friday Night at The Movies- Stand Up to Tyranny

Posted By on November 21, 2014

movie night

Tonight’s movies are a couple of videos from Gavin Seim. Gavin confronts tyranny anytime he sees it. He pulls over cops, defies DHS and blows through a California agricultural checkpoint. We’ll have him on the podcast in a couple of weeks, so watch these videos so you’ll know what we’re talking about.


My new book The Days of Noah, Book One: Conspiracy is out in Kindle and paperback! Audio production is finished and we’re waiting for final approval from Audible. To celebrate the release, I’m doing another HUGE GIVEAWAY! CLICK HERE for details!

Is there a secret cabal working to collapse the global economy in order to usher in a global government and one-world currency?

Noah Parker, like many in the United States, has been asleep at the wheel. During his complacency, the founding precepts of America have been slowly, systematically destroyed by a conspiracy that dates back hundreds of years. The signs can no longer be ignored and Noah is forced to prepare for the cataclysmic period of financial and political upheaval ahead.

The Days of Noah, Book One: Conspiracy, by Mark Goodwin is a fast paced fiction thriller where the world descends into chaos, a global empire takes shape, ancient writings are fulfilled and the last days fall upon the once great, United States of America.

Happy prepping!

Why Much of the UK will be Overrun By The Golden Horde in a Collapse Situation

Put people first G20 protest

Over the bridge, on the mainland, there has been a huge increase in house break-ins. Up at the far end of the island, near the bridge, there has been a 500% increase in house break-ins on the island. Okay, this equates to five home invasions, but that’s a hell of a lot for around here.

All of the homes that have been burgled have been very well kept. immaculate gardens, clean windows, decent car on the drive…dead giveaways that there may well be something worth stealing inside. Several less well kept homes were passed by in favour of those homes that appeared to have richer pickings.

Interestingly, one of the houses that escaped is actually owned by an exceedingly well off old gentleman who just cannot maintain his property as well as he once did. It’s not decrepit and run down by any ones standards, but it doesn’t have the wow factor that those homes around his do.

There will always be those people who make a living by taking from others. That won’t change. However, as people are squeezed more and more there will be more cases of home invasion carried out by those that don’t have the means to make ends meet, those who will do whatever they have to do to manage…even if this is something they wouldn’t have considered before.

uscrises

In the event of a collapse, or a national disaster, this problem will escalate quickly, particularly in the more urban areas. There are many ways that you can give the impression that your home is not worth bothering with. I am not suggesting that you let the place run down. The way the world is right now we need to maintain our property to the best of our ability so should the time come when home maintenance is way down the priority list we know things will be okay for a while at least. In the meantime however:

I am talking about not having the garden looking like something out of Gardeners World magazine.

About not having the frontage spotless and every piece of litter within 500 yards collected and disposed of.

I’m talking about actually putting the car in the garage instead of leaving it on the drive.

I’m talking about having hidden security instead of a highly visible system that screams there’s something worth stealing inside, most people who break into homes can bypass such systems anyway.

I’m talking about high intruder unfriendly spiky plants to prevent people climbing over fences. These plants are also somewhat unruly giving the garden a more ‘dishevelled’ look.

Here you can find a lot more tips to defend your home.

Should we face a total collapse hiding in plain site will need to be elevated to an art form. In such a situation much of the UK will carry on regardless, keeping their gardens neat, pretending all is normal, burying their head in the freshly dug soil and hoping the problem will go away.

EMP11

HELLO…IT WON’T GO AWAY!!!

Perish the thought that litter may collect on the drive, a bit of broken glass may not be swept up, the police don’t come when you call them…or the fire service…or the paramedics. Never mind, put the kettle on and we’ll all feel better after a cup of tea!

99.9% of the population of the UK do not have a clue just how bad life can get in the event of a collapse. This is quite simply because they do not accept the possibility of collapse. Most have no clue of the havoc a solar flare can bestow on the planet, I would be challenged to find a regular Joe in the street who even knows what an  EMP is.

As such, the talk of survival groups et al makes someone like me rather sad, it’s highly unlikely that we will be part of one due to the mindset of the vast majority of the population thinking anyone with such a mindset is an out and out lunatic.

So what is a prepper to do?

Keep on going and try and raise awareness when and where you can is about all you CAN do.

I ask  if the bridge closes “What on Earth would we do with no deliveries getting through?” That one elicited a minor panic as the bridge has only closed a few times in the past 30 years and therefore is not on the radar as a problem…normalcy bias at it’s best.

On the upside, a higher than average proportion of people here grow a good amount of their own food, bartering potatoes for carrots as an example is an accepted way of life here. Many raise chickens and there are several good sized farms on the island, all with livestock. In the first instance, early on in a collapse, this is a far better place to be than the vast majority of locations in the UK.

How we would fare further on into a collapse situation…who knows, but it would be dead easy to block that bridge to prevent, or at least impede people getting onto the island, and if people have the balls for it, there’s enough shotguns to prevent them doing much of anything when they do arrive…
