    Survival Tip #221: How to Make a Bow Out of PVC - 0

    Editor's Note: This tip comes from our new "Prepare for Anything Survival Manual."

    Whether you need to hunt for food or fend off post-apocalyptic barbarian hordes, a bow is a good, versatile weapon and tool.

    How To Plan And Plant A Hidden Survival Garden - 0

    Spring is finally here, and many of us gardening enthusiasts can’t wait for the last frost to be out of the way so we can set out some vegetable plants and seed. But what good is a garden if people steal all your vegetables during times of economic downturn?

    While some experts keep espousing that the economy is growing, others predict 2014 will see hyperinflation, stock drops and another crash like 2008. I’m no economist, but my parents and grandparents did turn me into a gardener. Since I can’t eat dollar bills or silver coins, I’m going to grow some food that won’t even look like food to the casual passerby. And even if the current financial system keeps limping along like a three-legged dog, I can still eat the delicious and healthy vegetables and share them with my family. [ Read Full Post ]

The puck-shaped box offers generous storage space, and its seal proved to be waterproof during the cold March showers experienced during testing. When the sun popped back out, we clipped the tinder bracket onto the parabolic mirror piece and had instant tinder ignition once we achieved the right angle to the sun. We easily lit the char cloth that was provided in the kit, as well as cattail fluff and tulip poplar bark tinder. [ Read Full Post ]
