Preparing for the worst? Not that crazy after all.

Preppers get a bad rap from folks who think they’re nothing but kooky, tinfoil-wearing conspiracy theorists.

But you know better—that in a chaotic world, prepping is actually the sanest thing you can do. 

And that’s how you stumbled upon

Whether you’re uneasy about the current state of the world or simply want to become more self-sufficient, you’re not alone.

We’re preppers like you, with a mission of sharing practical advice on all things prepping and survival. There are no annoying ads or BS here, just resources that will help you navigate through natural disasters, man-made catastrophes, and everyday life emergencies

Our advertising policy is community funded. Our articles may contain links that pay us a small commission in exchange for sending our partners traffic, and there may also be paid placement throughout the site. However, these are at no additional cost to you.

Thank you for helping us keep our site alive!

Editorial and review guidelines

A lot of the topics we discuss are very matter-of-life-and-death, so we ensure what we write about is well-researched and of high quality. Our articles go through several drafts, revisions, and fact checks before they’re set to be published. 

However, we’d like to emphasize that we aren’t experts by any means. It’s best to consult with professionals regarding any medical, self-defense, and trapping advice. 

Our editorial team

Here at, we’re dead set on creating extensive guides that tackle problems our community can encounter when least expected.

Each member of our team is always on the lookout for new things to share with our readers, and we’ve got current and ex-military advisors—our SHTF Preparedness Authorities—who review our writers’ drafts for accuracy.

We’re just as passionate about survival as you are. 

Our sources

You won’t find us spouting nonsense. No siree. We write based on what we gathered from government institutions, journals, and consultations with outdoor and survival experts.

We also speak a lot from experience.
