A Digest of Urban Survival Resources


When it comes to being prepared, the less the outside world knows, the better off you will be.


For example, if the power goes out you don’t want neighbors showing up at your house because they know you installed a backup generator.


(I’m not saying you shouldn't help close family or friends, but you can’t help everybody.)


This is why many people are turning to “stealth preparedness.”


Stealth preparedness is being prepared without everyone knowing.


The idea is to build up a stockpile of food, water, guns, and other supplies without it being obvious to the outside world.


You might think your neighbors are good folks, but people do unthinkable things when they are desperate.


So, here are a few ways to incorporate stealth preparedness into your current plans.




Americans love gardens…


Most folks have friends or family members who garden. It's so common that it doesn’t even register for most people. It’s hidden in plain sight.


So, a simple way to start is to begin gardening.


You can grow food for your family to consume whether during a disaster or normal day.


The neighbors likely won't give it a second thought.


Add a water feature to landscaping:


Adding a small pond to your backyard is a great way to store emergency water.


You can build a pond as big or small as you like, and you can even add fish to the pond as a food source during a disaster.


Obviously, you would want to filter any water before using it.


If you don’t want to build a pond, you could try rain barrels. Many rain collection barrels are made to blend into the landscaping.


Alternatively, you can run hoses from your rain gutters into the pond to collect rainwater for use during an emergency.




Depending on where you live, you could be paying $10 for a carton of eggs these days.


It’s a great time to start raising chickens. And if you added chickens to your backyard no one would think twice.


They would assume that you, like the rest of the country, are tired of paying ridiculous prices for eggs.


In the long run, chickens can be a great addition to supplying eggs and meat without drawing attention to your prep.


Get the meat from the source:


Where I live in southern Utah there are a lot of cattle ranchers that sell meat directly to customers.


This is a great way to buy large amounts of meat without going to the grocery store or Costco.


Buy a whole or half animal and keep the meat stockpiled in the freezer. You can do the transporting yourself and no one will know of your stockpile, except the rancher.


“Invisible” Food:


A final, easy way to prepare “under the radar,” is by stocking your home with long-term survival food.


Because survival food is more portable and concealable in pouches, you can slip it in your backpack, or stow it in plastic totes in the pantry, basement, or under your bed.*


And the fewer people who know how prepared you are, the longer you will be able to survive without being a target


*We have a dozen totes filled with 4Patriots & other brands of dehydrated food stocks, 100 gallons of water, etc. both at our home & our get-away retreat cabin.

Establishment Economists Are Finally Realizing It’s Time To Pay the Piper


Many financial gurus are predicting more bank failures & a dismal stock market

Survive the doom to enjoy the economic boom on the other side

People sometimes ask if I'm more pessimistic or optimistic about the future. It's both, actually: First, the collapse accelerates, and we send an end to the system we've known our entire lives. Out of the ashes, however, we who survive get to choose what kind of future we want to build together.

If we make the correct choices -- for liberty, reason, decentralization, etc. -- then we get to enjoy a true golden age for humanity, rooted in freedom and abundance.

To get there, however, we have to survive the globalist agenda to annihilate us all.

Growing Food in Buckets: A Step by Step Guide

Growing your own groceries in five-gallon buckets allows you to raise enough food to feed a family of four in a tiny space. When growing food in buckets, you don't need a 1/4 acre backyard to raise a bountiful garden as some people claim.

It is always best to use a brand new bucket when growing crops. Buckets get filled with all kinds of junk, fluids, and garden scraps that could kill your plants or make them harmful to consume.

A bucket that has previously housed swimming pool chemicals, asphalt, or chemical pesticides should be avoided entirely. Plant diseases are often spread by the use of contaminated tools and containers...

Not sure we need to worry-our neighbors are pretty much clueless about everything including how government is crushing them
