Silent Bug Out Bag

Keep Silent When The Time Comes to Bug-Out

If you’ve ever noticed, most stories about thieves tell a tale of people who are stealthy as they move around, they will be deathly quiet and will pass unnoticed while they steal what they want and then get cleanly away, while remaining ultra-quiet.

That’s because the thief knows that making sounds attract attention. While you may not be such a creature, you would do well to act like one as you prepare to bug-out in order to get out quickly and get to a place of safety away from any trouble that gives you cause for concern.

So keep in mind that all of your party needs to be absolutely quiet and this also includes any gear they are carrying because any metalic noise like canteens banging together could spell disaster for you all. It should be all taped up allowing no noise whatsoever to come out of you bug-out-bag or anything carried on your person.

This is one area that so many people fail to check ahead of time. Then disaster strikes, they grab their bug-out-bag and take off. But they’re leaving behind a sound trail that can alert others to their location.

Sounds travel even more so at night, it can attract the attention of anyone nearby and they can also echo. Depending on what’s making the noise, the sound can reverberate all around giving cause for any predator or unsavory charactures straight to you.

Before the bug out situation ever happens, once your bag is packed, you need to check it to see if you’re able to move it without it making any noise. Don’t just pick it up and put it down, if its a back-pack wear it and go for a jog and is any sounds is made strip it and find out what it is and sort it out.

Rearrange your bag if you have to so that it remains silent. What some preppers do is pack their bug out bag, making sure it’s quiet, then set it aside somewhere, not thinking about it again until the day of crisis happens. That is the correct way to go about it. If you want yourown detailed guide you can get one here for Free Here

Then they grab it and go. The problem with that is that things can shift due to heat expansion, cold weather and then someone or something goes bumping into your the bag the last thing you want to hear is noise like a metalic clang,  especially if the bag isn’t tightly packed remember sounds carry more at nigt.

Make sure that nothing is rattling, shifting, crinkling or clanging together. You also want to make sure your bag doesn’t give any creaking or scratching sounds when you’re on the move.

It needs to be comfortable too, there may not be time to adjust in on the move, check it out carefully as detailed in this Free Guide.

Economic Collapse


Call For a General Strike in the UK 1972

The Chances of an Economic Collapse are Always a Threat

 If you recall what happened only a few short years ago, with the financial crisis in Greece, Italy and even the larger countries such as France and Germany and the United States are not totally imnune from an Economic Collapse

So, apart from the financial losses, civil unrest, food shortages then leading to the more serious problems like Power cuts that I personally have not seen since the power cuts back in the seventies. That occurred in the United Kingdom as a result of 1970’s huge industrial action of the Mineworkers, the Steel Men, Transportation Links


The Miners Strikes of 1972 caused power cuts around the country.

, it all came to lead to the Power Station into rationing the Electricity in order to keep some balance of power by having certain periods of the day when some homes would be left without electricity. This was usually at night making everyone scurry to find candles and oil lamps some of which had not seen use since the times of War.

So, the chances of one or more countries suffering an economic collapse isn’t a work of fiction or a threat, it is already here! You wouldn’t necessarily believe that from reading the news.

The news doesn’t have access to the top secret insider information that the government does. The truth is that trouble is already knocking on someones door. Take a minute to check what’s going on in the world. Not the headlines about the latest scandal, I’m talking about the hidden tales of individual countries trying to keep ther heads about water.

The Countries Debt is what has the ability to topple Governments and to bring the country to its knees. The Economic Collapse can affect many countries in todays modern world. Most countries both lend and borrow money in huge quantities and rather like your own credit rating, if you are good and can mantain repayments then all is well. But if you default then the Banks or the Governments can call in their debt and effectively bankrupt the nation involved.

I cannot think of one country that is free from debt, not one single country is fiscally solvent and yet all of these countries keep going further into debt like there will never be any consequences.

But there will be a reckoning when economic collapse happens and when it does, it’s not going to be pretty. Once the economy goes belly up, you’re going to see lives thrown off balance and the upheaval is going to become a fight for survival and not everyone will survive because they’re not prepared.

When an economy fails, people will panic, first they will try to get all of their money put of their bank, because they will feel that they will need money to survive. However the Banks will have been closed by then, The Governement has done it before, they will close their dooors in order to prevent the Banks going under, if they do not survive they will never reopen and the Government cannot allow that to happen.

So, normal life is going to suddenly stop, all of this with very little warning, a few insiders may know or at least suspect its about to happen. The few who do may try to leave the country to find a safe harbour, but if one country goes, others will topple with it. This is because all the major banks are linked. So what effects one in one country can also impact another in a different contry.

Without being able to get their hands ontheir own money, people will grow even more panicked in the mistaken belief that they need money to survive, but in the realms of survival money is going to have little influance on who survives and who doesn’t.

Food is going to determine who initially survives, but no doubt help will be there eventually, the governments will have little choice but to to feed the people, they wouldn’t just let people starve would they? It certainly males you think huh?

Crimes will rise as people steal, fight and even kill for a way to survive. Riots will become more common. Looting will become commonplace in many towns and cities. People will riot, fires will be lit as people vent their anger at the whole situation. Property and people alike will be destroyed.


USA Martial Law Troops & Police

As a society crumbles into a financial dystopian free-for-all landscape, in an effort to regain control, the government will start calling in the troops. Martial law will go into effect and some order may be resolved, but I’m sure by now you can imagine the country is no longer what it was.

With troops controlling the streets, your movents will be controlled, even your liberty could be impacted depending upon where you live. With crime and violence on the increase a curfew may even be enforced.

Eventually Martial Law could be introduced, regular laws will be suspended. You will

do as the government says. But hopefully you will be fed and to a degree looked after but much depends now, if the utilities are still working , the lights, the power plant, the water services and sanitation and gasworks. If those begin to go offline then the country as a whole is going to be in a real jam.

Plan To Survive

That’s why you need to have contingency plans, I’m not just talking about the prospects of an Economic Collapse, it could be any anything from a full blown War to Terrorist Activity.  The earlier you begin to plan the easier you will have it and you need to keep the list of people who know your plans to as smaller number as possible.

Rule 1. Make sure that all of your money isn’t tied up in the bank. Gold is an option but be careful where you stash it, it must be secure but easy to get to.

2. Make up a Bug-Out-Bag ready to go for each member of the family sufficient for several days.

3. Keep your bug out bag ready to roll so that you can get out of an area the minute the trouble starts.

4. Have a safe place to go to, preferrably stocked already with as much food and water sufficient to last weeks if not months. This also means that you are going to need the medicines to cover all eventualities, a weapons stash may also be required. becuae if anyone knows you have supplies then you will become a target.

5. Have yourself plenty of sealed fresh water together if at all possible a back up source of water and the means to clean and disinfect it.

6. Power may become erratic so back up power will be reuied at somepoint but you don’t want to advertise this so you need to consider, the noise factor together with sight, you’ve heard the words “where there’s smoke, there’s fire” haven’t you? well then don’t giveaway your position by allowing smoke to show.

7. Communication may fail so ideally a radio, CB or Shortwave may help to keep in touch with trusted friends, but be careful not to giveaway to much about yourselves.

8. Have a second plan just in case.

Survival of The Better Equipped


This Water Source Could Really Save Your Life

For Your Survival Your Number 1 Priority is to Find a Reliable Water Source

One of the top survival priorities in any emergency is to find a reliable clean water source. But that’s just the thing how do you know for certain that the water you have found is clean and safe enough for drinking?

Well the answer to that is no matter how clean the water looks there could be all manner of contaminants in that clean cup of water. But it could be that the dirty looking water is safe enough to drink, it may not be pleasant, but it won’t make you sick.

The truth is that you will never know for certain, not unless you know the original water’s source, like a true mountain river or stream, so the answer is to boil everything then you will know for sure that you have got rid of all potentially harmful bugs and bacteria.

It may be okay if you have been able to store fresh clean drinking water but failing that you will always need to fetch water, disinfect it sufficiently for your needs, ideally sufficient for 2 to 3 days.

Whether your crisis is unfolding in the desert, the mountains or even at home following some form of natural disaster, the human body can only last three days without any drinking water at all.

However, before you can disinfect the water, you must find it and that would always be your priority because the human body can only last for around 3 days without water of any description.

So, depending on your location and situation, water can be abundant or virtually non-existent. Water can come from freshwater surface sources like streams, creeks, ponds, and lakes. If you can distil the water, you can even use brackish or salty water as a source because you can treat it if you know how.

In this article, I’m going to assume that you have found water and that you must now treat this water before drinking.


  1. Boiling

To kill the parasites, bacteria, and other pathogens, you must boil the water for a good 5 minutes to kill most organism’s, but 10 minutes is better still. Boiling alone may not get rid of all chemical pollution but it is still by far the safest method of disinfection. If you don’t have a suitable fireproof container, scout around for any other bowl like container, then heat rocks and drop them into smaller amounts of water.


  1. Distillation

Given a scenario where you have no safe water, you are left with no other option except to distil the water you have.

Radiation, lead, salt, heavy metals, and many other contaminants can taint your water supply after a disaster and trying to filter them out will only ruin your expensive water filter.

So, in this scenario, you need to try a number of distillation methods. One of which is a simple Sun or Solar Still. This collects and distills water in a hole in the ground, first you need to locate a sunny spot to build the still.  Ideally, there would be grass or other vegetation around, and the soil damp, the water vapor will form underneath the tarp and fall into the container for you to drink from.

So, you will need approximately 5 to 6 feet of plastic sheeting which you would place over a three-foot-deep hole in the ground. A clean container would be placed under the plastic sheeting.

It would be better if you could find a long tube to place into the container, so you could drink directly from the container without disturbing the whole still.

To stop the sheet from blowing around you will need to put weight onto its outer edges, stones, rocks or even soil will do. The place a rock in the center of the sheet to hold it down and over the collection container to encourage the water to fall into it.


  1. Survival Straws

These are a recent edition for survivalists or even for folks walking camping or hiking in the wilderness areas as an emergency element of their pack. Its simplicity and light weight make it attractive to carry in such circumstances. It is straw like water filter that allows you to drink untreated water.

Newer models can be used as you would a drinking straw and can also connect to the drain valve on a water heater to clean up the water you might find in a water heater after a disaster. They can also fit onto a garden hose to filter the water running through it. Don’t expect it to filter out every single virus or bacteria that could be growing in there, though—especially a hose that’s been laying in the sun, or a water heater full of tepid water after a prolonged power outage. Most of these filters contain an activated carbon filter element, which not only filters out larger bacteria and pathogens but also removes odd flavors and odors from the water.


  1. Emergency Water Filters

There are two main types of water filters currently in use today, they are the pump-action filters and drip/suction filters. The pump action filter forces the untreated water through a filter cartridge just like with The Survivor Filter PRO

The latter are filter cartridges that use a gravity drip action (like an IV bag) just like the PlatipusGravitiyWorks 4L Kit or are placed in line on hydration bladder hoses. When used on a hydration bladder, the user simply sucks water through the filter as needed.

A favourite among is the survival community is The Katadyn Pocket Microfilter.

It has a ceramic cartridge with silver imbedded inside. The ceramic filters out the larger pathogens, and the silver kills or disables smaller organisms like viruses. Most filters like this will pump about a quart per minute. If time isn’t an issue, you might opt for a gravity-fed system like the one shown here.


  1. Ultraviolet Light Devices

UV light is very damaging to small organisms. When used as a disinfection method, it’s really efficient at killing these damaging organisms. UV light otherwise known as Black Light can be used by the survivor to great effect when used as a disinfection method,  Devices like the Steripen Sidewinder are battery-free, hand-cranked water purification devices that disrupt the DNA of illness-causing microbes in mere seconds. There are also a few battery-powered Steripen products that pack the same punch on bad bugs, and have been field-proven around the globe. These are not 100-percent effective in water with large floating particles (which pathogens can hide behind or inside), but for clear water of questionable origin these devices will do the trick.


  1. Solution Water Disinfection

Solar water disinfection (SODIS for short) is a water treatment method that uses the sun’s energy for disinfection. The most common technique is to expose plastic bottles full of contaminated water to the sun for a minimum of one day. The sun’s abundant UV light kills or damages almost all biological hazards in the water. This is a cheap and easy method for getting rid of many of the harmful bugs which cause diarrhea. It provides good (but not complete or guaranteed) bacterial and viral disinfection. Another good thing is that it doesn’t use dangerous chemicals, and it does not require constant attention.

But there are some potential problems with the method too. You need good sunny weather or two days of the overcast sky to reach the maximum effectiveness on a bottle of water. You cannot use it in any rain, at night or in really overcast skies, it may be less effective against bacterial spores and cyst stages of some parasites, the water, and the bottle need to be clear and the bottle needs to be clear plastic, not glass. Finally, this method does nothing to help with chemical contamination and only up to two liters of water can be treated at a time, unless you have a number of bottles at your disposal.


  1. Tablets

There are mainly two chemicals that can be used in water purification, they both seem to be better than 99-percent effective against water-borne pathogens.

Two of the most common and popular water disinfection tablets are S.O.S. Emergency Water 5 Year Shelf Life Tablets and Potable Aqua’s iodine tablets. They can both work very effectively, but there are some differences. If you’re stocking a cabin, cave, or Bug-Out-Shelter with purification tablets, you certainly want to consider the lifespan of the product. The iodine tablets from Potable Aqua have a one-year shelf life. That’s not bad, but The S.O.S. Tablets have a 5-year shelf life. While these two products are using different chemicals, they are both 99-percent effective against water-borne pathogens.

Potable Aqua is the clear winner when it comes to speed. The water treated with these tablets is ready to drink 35 minutes after treatment begins. One final thought to consider is the side effects.

The toxicity and flavor of iodine can be a little problematic. The iodine tablets are generally not a good choice for pregnant women or anyone with thyroid issues or shellfish allergies. Picky children are also notorious for failing to drink the iodine-infused water, and this could quickly lead to dehydration and other serious repercussions in an already dicey emergency.

Any chlorine based product does have the chlorine smell about it but most of that should disappear after the allotted 4-hour treatment of the water, so that product is widely tolerated and tastes much better.


  1. Using Household Chemicals

 As a last resort you could use items from home such as Bleach or Iodine but you must use caution to disinfect your water with safe results.

Generally speaking, the amount of the chemical you use will depend on the water quality and temperature. Cold or murky water needs a little more disinfectant up to four drops per quart, compared with 2 drops for warm or clear water.

Once you have added the chemical, put the lid back on your water container and shake it for a minute. Then turn the bottle upside down, and unscrew the cap a turn, or two. Let a small amount of water flow out to clean the bottle threads and cap. Screw the lid back on tight, and wipe the exterior of the bottle to get the chlorine on all surfaces. Set the bottle in a dark place, or at least in the shade, and let it sit for 30 minutes if the water is clear and at room temperature. When you open the bottle after the allotted time, it should smell like chlorine. If not, add another drop or two and wait another 30 minutes. Don’t take chances or shortcuts with water safety. The last thing you need in an emergency is dysentery.

You can also use the two common forms of iodine to disinfect your water. Iodine is a more harmful substance than bleach in most people’s bodies, but it is an option. To use iodine, it is critical to identify which type you are using. Tincture of iodine 2% is actually much stronger than 10% povidone-iodine solution. Use 5 to 10 drops of tincture of iodine 2% in one quart of water and allow it to sit in the shade for 30 minutes. Again, flush the threads and wipe down the bottle. Use 5 drops for clear or warm water, and up to 10 for cold or cloudy water. Since 10% povidone-iodine solution is weaker, you’ll need 8 to 16 drops per quart of water. Again, use fewer drops for nice looking water and 16 drops for swamp water. Clean the bottle and wait. An added benefit to iodine products is that you can use them for wound disinfections too. Chlorine does not serve double duty like this, and you should never put bleach on any wounds. Never blend iodine and chlorine for water disinfection.


  1. Build Your Own Water Filter

We’ve all seen the survival books displaying a water filter made from different substances, charcoal is one of them but this alone will not create bacteria-free and virus-free water to drink. Ideally, you need a number of items to filter the different types and sizes of contaminants.

You could make a filter made from the flexible hose, glue, and a chunk of pine sapwood. The sapwood’s structure already performs a filtering action in the living wood, screening out air bubbles from the tree sap. Unchecked, these air bubbles would lead to tissue damage.

This type of filter has some humanitarians looking hard at conifer wood as a readily available material for water filtration devices in developing nations. Researchers have successfully used a one-cubic-inch block of pine sapwood as a water filter. (Click here to see their research article.) This chunk of wood was attached to a water supply by using a PVC pipe and some epoxy to prevent water from bypassing the wood filter. Flow rates of several quarts a day were reached in their trials, and E. coli was eliminated by 99.9 percent. These are amazingly the same numbers you’ll see from straw-style water filters. Though the wood might allow some viruses to pass through (since they are much smaller than bacteria), some water filtration is better than none.

9. Just Drink It!

Drinking raw water is certainly a gamble. Even in pristine wilderness areas, the water can be contaminated with all kinds of bowel-churning pathogens. Unless you are lucky enough to find a spring that is issuing clean water out of the natural water table, drinking unprocessed water is risky at best. If there’s any way to process the water, it should be attempted before you say “bottoms up” to unprocessed water. But there are always exceptions. If death from dehydration is near, and you cannot treat the water, drink it anyway. It’s better to be alive and sickened with pathogens, than dead and pathogen free. But I would seriously consider carefully your options at this point.

Be extremely careful with water filters!  They block bacteria which is then left behind in the filter, these will massively multiply to a dangerous level.  As an exercise use the filter for a few days then leave it for a month. Then cut it open and see the massive furry growth inside which is the bacteria – it’s shocking. If all you have is a filter use it once and throw it away.

In order to have better protection use a water purifier that meets or exceeds ANSI/NSF 53 and P231 standards for water purifiers meeting this standard, they kill bacteria, cysts, and viruses.

Don’t use chemicals such as water purification tablets or bleach as you don’t know the long-term issues they can medically cause.

Civil Unrest Is Disturbing


Civil Unrest Can Happen


Civil Unrest Can Happen

    Civil Unrest Does Happen!


If you think that Civil Unrest only occurs in South America or Africa then think again. Just check out some of the recent events that have occurred in the US alone, then again in London a few years back. In fact most cities have experienced it at some point.

Civil unrest has now become commonplace. It’s what happens when people get mad and decide that they’re going to protest or riot or hold demonstrations. Then you have two elements, the genuine protestors and the thugs who are there for the violence.

During times of civil unrest, chaos usually follows, regardless of how peaceful the protest first appears to be going. Anarchy will usually follow, it just seems to follow on each occasion. The norms of society break down and it becomes every man for himself. Trouble can boil over very quickly and swiftly sweeps up innocent civilians.

The original intention of the protesters then becomes lost beneath the herd mentality that takes over when large groups of people become angry. Authority is overthrown and the swell of those tearing down societies norms is often too much for local authorities to deal with.

You can’t control how people are going to behave. But you don’t have to be in a position


Fires are the Mobs Tool

where their behavior negatively affects your day to day living. Wherever there is civil unrest, you should give thought to bugging out in a hurry. Go stay with friends or whoever, even consider a Motel well out of harm’s way.

You could also set out a bug-out plan in this eventuality, with a couple of options and routes just in case your first route is compromised, just get well out of the way because at the center of chaos is where people get hurt or much worse. Then all you can do is wait it out. It makes sense to have a 2 to 3 day Bug-out Bag prepared in advance so you can just grab it and take off without having to get it together and then worry about forgetting something.

The other main point is to avoid the crowds when people swarm, injuries do occur. try not to let yourself become vulnerable. In civil unrest, people will often smash window, light fires, break into buildings and of course loot them.

Don’t get stuck in a building that can be targeted. If you are in a relatively safe place and can’t leave, make sure you fortify the place where you’re at. Those who are causing unrest are looking for easy targets, so if they can’t get to you then you should be safe, but on no account should you let yourself be seen. They don’t like to have witness’s either!!

These frenzied people want to loot and attack, no one will be safe and no stores will be left untouched, in London, we saw on live tv the mob ripping a steel protective shutter out of its rails so they could smash, loot and burn the property. There were even people in the flats above, luckily they got out of the back doors just in time.

You need to make sure you have a survival bag for each member of your family. Have all required medications, baby supplies, and important papers ready in your bags or available if you need to leave in a hurry. Have a safety deposit account for your important papers if you can. But your bug-out bag should carry your essentials for a least 3 days.

During looting the top three items to get taken are booze (alcohol), cigarettes and cash, because it’s easy to handle and hard to trace. Then follows baby supplies and food. It is often at this point that the angry mob targets the larger items, like tv’s and other electronic goods, but then they begin to turn on any other human prey they can find.

Even armed cops will stay out of the way until a much larger force arrives to back them up, so there is little point in arming yourself against the rioting mob, just give them what they want if you find yourself on the streets and the mob finds you, it may be the only way to remain alive and even then you may take a beating.

When there is civil unrest, the police often can’t get to certain areas to help victims, so make sure you take steps to prevent becoming one in the first place. Just stay away.

A Story Of Horror And Survival

A real story that includes an element of fiction as well as fact will always do well because the story has believable facts as well as the fiction which makes it interesting. Such a book was first developed on the internet and as it was picked up and read by thousands of people downloading it, it made it into paperback format and soon to be a film. The book is called Lights Out and it was written by David Crawford.

One which could easily happen in todays world of Power shortages, global warming, climate change and natural disasters. It is of course a work of fiction by David Crawford and he takes the situation that the main character finds himself in following the days and weeks after the majority of the World has been plunged into darkness and civil unrest. He must secure his family, friends and neighbour’s and steer them through the dangers that they experience.

The name given to the main character is Mark Turner who takes on the huge challenge following an huge burst of Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) which cuts out a huge amount of power across the world, there are no cars around, no engines little in the way of lighting and power unless someone has some form of shielding or other protection available to them. There is utter chaos and of course the villains are going to take every possible advantage they can and they certainly do. This story is easily possible these days and because of this it is very believable and it makes the story that much better.

Silver Hill in South Texas is where this small band begin their quest for survival

The original Author David Crawford is an avid outdoorsman who lives the outdoor life of  hunting, fishing, hiking and shooting. He is also a 4th level black belt with the American Society of Karate where he teaches kids and adults. Crawford resides in San Antonio, TX with his wife and two children.

The Saga Itself
This is really scary stuff, full of what if’s and what would I do? kind of questions.

It is the unbelievable and believable struggle of people from every nook and cranny of our society or should I say Silver Hill in Texas who simply try to survive in a world where they will have lost all normal modern conveniences to which they have become accustomed to. It will be like suddenly going back a couple of thousand years where everything they know from communications to commerce and transportation have been lost and crippled by “The Burst” as it is eventually known. The big cities riot and burn, so many small communities band together in an attempt to save their families, friends, and neighbors from the cruel reality that soon becomes the normal way of things. In the natural order of things natural leaders soon emerge, it may be a role that is not wanted to some people have the knowledge and power to survive where others need to be lead. One such man is Mark Turner, he finds himself pushed into the leadership role he doesn’t want. The story is told through his eyes as he labors with organizing, training, and even refereeing the people around him. Mark knows that their survival depends on everyone in the neighborhood pulling together. But Mark’s biggest battle isn’t with MZB’s, though. He strives most to find within himself the strength, courage, and compassion to lead his ragtag community through this crisis.


Earthquakes Can Be As Bad

This could really happen in todays modern world where many of us are hooked on power and technology. Just imagine for a moment if everything went of for a week, how would you cope, how would we all cope is an even bigger question that would haunt many of us for a long time to come.

Would you be a leader? someone who could take charge and forge a safe path through all the disarray that would follow something like this? Or would you be a lamb and allow and rely completely on everyone else as they scramble around trying to get through. Where would you go?
  What exactly would you do, would you sit tight or head out into the country?

I for one am not sure, I think I would stick around until I had a clear picture of what is happening but


Tsunamis Are Devastating

survival is also a matter of luck for many you know, jump right survive, jump left you die!

But what happens when you run out of food? Would you beg or steal or would you catch your own?
At times like this you would probably be like the rest of us and be wishing you had taken more notice of the abundant nature programs to learn how to light fires and eat the right plants or  even had begun prepping as so many others have been doing for years.
