Are there any preppers/survivalists on this site? How does being Paleo affect your bug out bags and food storage? Do you plan to try to remain Paleo when SHTF?

I am not a prepper, but I saw once on one of the prepping shows that one of the peoples' plan was to store a bunch of seeds and then sprout them each day to increase the amount of nutrients. Then you can store a lot of calories that will last for... (more)

Whether it be camping, surviving, hiking, mountain climbing, etc., what would be the best food to take with you? Jerky? Almonds? Bars?

Supporting an overpopulated world is a complex issue. Saying that this method or that is the only way is shortsighted and naive. As others have already said, there are political, economical and environmental concerns to look at as well as... (more)

You should check out some of the videos of Cody on Youtube. He is definitely a well rounded survivalist and quite adept at making traps himself, usually deadfalls for rodents. I am also a fan of his books, I've owned 98.6 since it came out and... (more)

I think you need to re-think your fundamental delineation between long term survival and reproductive success. They are, in fact, one and the same when it comes to humans. You cannot successfully reproduce without being alive long enough to... (more)

This "theory" is idle evolutionary speculation that everyone falls prey to at some point or another. It fails to hold up to scrutiny, but is intuitively satisfying if you don't really think about it. Basic questions: 1) What is "winter" in east... (more)
