    Here are some random urban survival tips. Some of them are tips that didn’t fit in with any of the posts I’ve made so far, but they’re all important.

    Prepping for Small Children

    Prepping for Small Children

    We can never be certain when the next major disaster will strike, but one thing we can be certain of: disasters do not strike when it’s convenient for us. As a parent, I wish I had the power to make sure there isn’t ever a disaster that disrupts my children’s lives, at least not until they’re old enough to handle themselves. But that’s not how it works. I need to do everything I can to make sure I’ll be able to take care of them if a disaster strikes while they’re still young. That means I’ve had to acquire many … Read More

    Urban Survival First Aid Kit

    Ready Store First Aid Kit

    In most disasters, whether it’s a hurricane, a terrorist attack, or a city full of looters, people get hurt. Survival first aid is essential in these situations, but very hard to come by due to overcrowded hospitals. After food, water and shelter, medical supplies and a good book on first aid should be your next priority. Fortunately, it isn’t very expensive to assemble your own first aid kit. Consider all the most likely disaster scenarios, how many people will be with you, their health, and what types of medical emergencies might occur. Now examine the list below and make adjustments … Read More

    Survival Fitness

    The older I get, the more concerned I am with survival fitness. I’ve only posted one other article on fitness, “Getting In Shape For TEOTWAWKI,” but I’ve learned a few things since them. Much of my learning is from The Primal BlueprintPrimal Blueprint. I highly recommend that book. It completely changed the way I eat and exercise and I’ve never felt better. Here are a few things I’ve learned.

    Stop Jogging

    The Primal Blueprint author and his wife. They never go jogging.

    I know a lot of people will disagree with this, but long workouts like jogging are not the best way to exercise. In fact, they’re probably one of the worst ways to exercise. Last year I went jogging three days a week so I would be able to complete a 10k run. Strangely, I only lost a few pounds during the months I spent training. I also noticed that even though I could jog for several miles, I still got winded when I ran up the stairs in my house.

    Believe it or not, long cardio workouts aren’t very good for your heart. Yes, they make your heart more efficient, but they also reduce your heart’s reserve capacity. In order to get more efficient, your heart actually gets smaller so it can go longer while using less energy. But what if you suddenly need to push your heart to the limit for a few minutes? It won’t be able to handle it. This phenomenon is explained in detail in The Doctor’s Heart Cure.

    Keep Your Precious Metals Safe

    If you already have precious metals or are considering getting them, you need to find a way to keep them safe from thieves. There are several options. But before I get into them, I want to emphasize something.

    If you own gold or silver, you should only tell one other person about it. This should be someone you trust completely. Don’t tell your friends, your coworkers, your family, or even your children. It’s not that any of them would steal from you. The problem is that people talk. And if lots of people know you have precious metals, a criminal might find out in passing. Pick one person, tell them the location, the combination if applicable, and include them on the safety deposit box registration if you have one. This is so they can get to it in case you die or are incapacitated. Now on to the hiding spots.

    In A Home Safe. This is the most obvious choice. But if you get a safe, you might want to get it bolted or cemented to the ground. Safes are heavy, but that won’t stop a crook from using a dolly to wheel it out of your house and figure out how to open it later. You should also make sure it’s waterproof and fireproof. I recommend one with a combination lock since safes with key locks are easier to bust open. Also, keys can be lost or stolen. Just make sure you don’t forget the combination.

    You could also get a decoy safe. The idea is to get a safe, put just a few coins, a little bit of cash, some fake jewelry, copies of important documents, etc. inside, and place it somewhere easy to find like in your bedroom closet. When a thief finds it, he’ll think he hit the jackpot, then he’ll take the decoy safe and leave. What he won’t know is that you have another, smaller, well-hidden safe with the real goods inside. Put that one somewhere deep in the garage, basement or attic behind some random junk.
