‘Ordinary Day’

  A lot of people wonder what an ‘ordinary day’ was like during the SHTF. I was thinking on this and remembered this day. I think it is a good illustration and answers this question… It’s odd to say but we were often glad of ‘ordinary days’ when not to bad things happened…   Rain […]

Some Thoughts on ‘Reality’ TV

  A long time ago (years ago now) I wrote a blog post on something like a ‘review’ of one of the popular survival shows, and I kinda “crushed” that show because it was full of techniques that looked cool on TV but will get you killed in reality. Later I decided that I will […]

Some Thoughts On Food…

  I just want to start by saying thanks for all the comments and suggestions on my recent question about ‘what Do You Think’. I’m going to go through the comments and choose some questions to answer in these coming weeks. I will highlight (as some people said in the comments) that a LOT of […]

What Do You Think…?

You have probably noticed I am trying to write more often these days, and also improve a little the SHTF School website. I enjoy writing, but instead of an article, today I am going to ask you a question. What is it you would like to see/read about here? If you have questions, or suggested […]

Under The Bridge…

  After maybe 6 months of horrible violence in the city, and life without enough food, water, electricity… after months of shelling, shooting, screaming and crying and simply after months of collecting wood for fire, plugging holes in my (what’s left of) roof, I “stumbled” upon on piece of normal life. Through some contacts of […]

Going it Alone… Some Things To Consider.

  In one of my recent posts I wrote (answering one reader’s question) about perspectives of surviving SHTF between being alone in urban settings or being in wilderness settings and similar, and just like always, I concluded that it is very hard to survive alone when SHTF especially in urban settings. I’ve written numerous posts […]

Where to Start…?

    There is never a ‘bad’ time to start Preparing (Unless it’s after SHTF 😉 ), but it seems that now is a perfect time to become prepper and survivalist. I’m seeing and hearing from a lot of folks, that for various reasons, are now interested in preparing. I see numerous reasons for that, […]

If I was in America, I would….?

  And then one day, finally, real democracy came! We were feeling that after long time of the same old politicians who cared only for themselves or their own circles and families, suddenly there is a man (or people) who will bring something new for us, pride, strength, wealth or whatever. Media was full of […]

‘Lone Wolf’ Life Expectancy…?

  Over the last couple of years I get many questions about „what to do when SHTF if you are alone, without network of people…“ kinda questions, most of my answers were pretty much grim about perspective of being alone when SHTF. It is not impossible, but it is very, VERY hard. Over on our […]
