Answers to Readers Questions (Part One)

  I asked you in one of my previous posts what you would like to see or read here on blog and your answers were great, actually I did not expect so many comments and questions. There are some comments and demands about topics that I already wrote here yes, and there are some new. […]

Full Circle…?

  I wrote my first survival article-comment some 7 years ago, and I still remember why I wrote it, what “pushed” me to sit down and write it so people who read/discuss survival over the internet for years can read my opinion. I was checking the survival forums to learn something about wilderness survival because […]

Skills And Training

I have just finished delivering another ‘Mile In My Shoes’ (MIMS) down here in the Balkans. As always it was a great event with many insights both for the students and me. Having finished the course I got to thinking more about training in the survival and preparedness community. Learning real survival skills in the […]

Under Pressure

  A month or two ago or so I made (promise to myself, and others too) a decision that I will write posts on my blog more often, because of a few reasons, first and most important is that you folks react positively on posts and want to read new posts more often, other reasons […]

‘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 […]
