1. 6 Street Smart Skills You Need In An Urban Disaster

“You don’t need to be a full-blown survivalist to make it through an urban disaster. While vast stockpiles of food, water, and other supplies would indeed be quite beneficial, skills trump stuff every time.

Whether you’re concerned about civil unrest, power outages, or a pandemic, here are six skills you should learn as soon as possible.

5. How to Start Your Homestead

homesteading“I have a bookshelf full of homesteading books, resources, information, and magazines on all kinds of homesteading topics.

I have dreamed about the day when we would live on enough acreage that we could easily keep livestock, grow an expansive garden, and maybe even make a bit of income from our excesses.
