Conflicted – Choosing the Right Group – What Would You Do?

Click here to view the original post.

CONFLICTED SURVIVAL GAME:

BEFORE THE SHTF!

 

Conflicted is a Survival Game.  Each card in the deck has a scenario that will stretch how you would respond in an SHTF situation.  What would you do?  Leave your thoughts in the comment section below!

 

SCENARIO – Your survival group of 8 is isolated in the wilderness and has been surviving quite well. You are aware that there are other survival groups within a 5 mile radius of you.

The first group consists of 18 people that are in the same situation that you are in, and the other group is a small mountain community of 50 that are struggling but holding on.

These two groups are at odds with each other and choosing one means siding against the other.  You are thinking about establishing an alliance with these groups.  

Which group would you choose first and how would you establish a relationship for mutual benefit.

5 Realities You’ll Face In An SHTF World

Click here to view the original post.

You’re Probably Not Thinking About This In An SHTF World!

We have never really been in a prolonged SHTF scenario in this country, at least not in our modern day.  But if it ever happens, and I hope it doesn’t, there are things that many people aren’t really thinking about.  Unfortunately, many believe SHTF will just mean life would be like a very long extended camping trip.  That is the furthest from the truth!  An SHTF World will be bad, really bad!

In a recent video, I talked about my favorite article of the week that I read on The Prepper Website Podcast.  The article comes from Ask a Prepper and is titled, “7 Terrifying Realities Of Long-Term Blackouts (That You’ve Probably Never Considered).”  I used that article to bounce off of an talk about my thoughts on an SHTF World

Some of the topics that came up were water, trash, sewage, paying bills and neighbors who will cause you problems, even if they are leaving you alone in your home.  Again, these are things that not everyone thinks about.  I hope you watch or listen to the video and share your thoughts below.

In the video, I mention a British version of American Blackout.  You can watch it by clicking here.

BEFORE the SHTF!

 

Conflicted is a Survival Game.  Each card in the deck has a scenario that will stretch how you would respond in an SHTF situation.  What would you do?  Leave your thoughts in the comment section below!

 

SCENARIO – Your scouts inform you about a small-time kidnaper who is holding people hostage and engaging in human trafficking.  The initial intel is that he has a force of 4 other men with him who are well armed and dozens of victims, most of them women and children.

It sounds like they would be an even match to your current survival group and your capabilities. As your group’s leader, would you waste supplies and risk the lives of your group members to rid the world of such characters or would you let them continue to prey upon the weak?

The children are too young and his wife too depressed to be of any help with this situation.  As the leader of your group, what would you do with this member and his family?

SCENARIO – At the local trading post, a man recognizes you for someone who turned him and his family away when he came begging for help.  He starts to yell in the middle of the trading post that he’ll sell information about your bug-out location to the highest bidder.

There are about 300 people doing business there as this scene unfolds.  He claims to know your guard rotation schedule, how many people you have in the camp, and the type of supplies you have in storage.  People are starting to notice the commotion.  It’s time for you to do something.  How you handle this situation?

SCENARIO – Your group has managed to survive a catastrophic event, and in fact you are thriving.  The group has many individuals with essential talents that have helped the group be successful.

However, one day your only gunsmith/blacksmith lets slip that he was once convicted of child molestation.  He has never given the group any hint of his past until now, and has in fact been a core and valued member of the group.

Do you forget his past and hope that his tendencies don’t emerge again, or do you expel him from the group and lose his skill set?

The reports from different outlets are extremely conflicting.  How would you go about investigating this further until you made a firm decision to bug out or stay put?

Conflicted Survival Game:

BEFORE the SHTF!

 

Conflicted is a Survival Game.  Each card in the deck has a scenario that will stretch how you would respond in an SHTF situation.  What would you do?  Leave your thoughts in the comment section below!

 

SCENARIO – Your camp was attacked and you and your buddies fended off the attackers and took 3 people prisoners.  Supplies are low and they are extra mouths to feed.

Would you kill them to remove the threat and save supplies; Try to convert them and lose supplies building trust (This would cut your supply timeline in half); Or would you set them free, risking a counter attack?  How would you handle this situation and why?

How to Get Your Finances Under Control So Your Family Is Financially Prepared for An Economic Storm!

Click here to view the original post.

Financial Preparedness

Financial Preparedness Is One of the

Most Important Things You Can Do!

Not having enough financial resources to take care of important necessities when “times” are relatively good and the economy has the appearance of being “strong” is hard. It’s even harder when the financial system is in a contraction and your need and opportunities to feed and shelter your family dry up. One of the most important things that someone wanting to be prepared for the future can do is to plan to get out of debt and manage their money effectively, right now!

Two Scenarios – Which One Are You?

Just imagine for a few moments how differently these two scenarios could play out.

Scenario 1 – Jack lost his job today. Besides being blindsided by his employer who had told him a month earlier that he was an important part of the company and his job was safe, his mind now flooded with the anxiety of what his job loss would mean to his family and the mountain of bills he had accumulated over the years. They were living paycheck to paycheck. He wouldn’t have any time to waste. He would need to find a job right away or risk not having enough money to pay his bills, feed his family and keep the house.

Scenario 2 – Jack lost his job today. As he drove home, he wondered if his boss was telling the truth or buying time when he told him he was an important part of the company a month earlier. He would tell his wife over dinner this evening. She would worry. And, to be honest, he would too! Finding a job to replace his current income would be difficult. But, he was glad that he had the ability to be a little picky as he and his wife had built up an emergency fund through saving and sticking to a strict budget. He would have six months to find something that would meet his and his families financial needs.

These are not zombie, end of the world scenarios. These two scenarios are playing out all over the place right now, every single day! Families are having to deal with the realities of job losses, meager paying jobs and lean times. Those that plan and prepare ahead of time will have many more options, and their sanity, if they have to navigate hard economic times.

To Be Successful Your Finances Need a Budget

To prepare your finances, you have to have a starting place. That starting place is a budget. Creating a budget isn’t hard, but it does take a little bit of time to put it together. Luckily, I have created a resource that will help you. You and your spouse just need to sit down and plug in your specific needs.
Here is a link to a Google Sheet (an Excel file is at the end of this article) that will allow you to plug in the numbers and do the math for you. But if you would like to work it out on paper and pencil, download the PDF at the end of this article.

All of Your Expenses – The key to making your budget a successful tool is that you need to include all of your expenses. This includes things that you might not think of like, going out to eat, individual spending money, that candy bar you bought when you filled up on gas, EVERYTHING! Don’t forget to create a budget category for preparedness.

The reason you need to include everything is that it all adds up! Every cent, every dollar that goes out, is accomplishing something. Is it accomplishing what you want it to do? The second reason you want to account for every cent is that the extra money that you have, that isn’t paying expenses, you want to pay down debt and start building an emergency fund.

So, it is important to account for all expenses and have it down on your budget. At that point, you can see what is coming in and going out very easily. You might be surprised how much actually comes in and that you can’t account for it at the end of the month.

You Need an Emergency Fund and You Need to Pay Down Debt

After creating your budget, the next step is to see how much money is left over. That money needs to be used to first, put away a small emergency fund to get you through any small financial hiccups. After you have $500 – $1,000 saved up, then you can start breaking the chains of indebtedness.

Dave Ramsey has done a great job of promoting his “Debt Snowball” to help people understand paying down debt. If you are serious about getting out of debt and becoming financially healthy, you should read his book, The Total Money Makeover. Here I’ll share this video where Dave explains the Debt Snowball.

How Are You Going to Increase Your Income?

As you are actively working your budget, saving for an emergency fund or paying down debt, you should be looking for ways to increase your income. You should want to bring in more money to pay down debt and build your emergency fund more quickly.

Here’s the thing…. Make this your hobby. Make it fun! Don’t spend your evenings in front of the idiot box watching who knows what!

There are so many things you can do here. You can have a garage sale, put items that you don’t use anymore up on eBay or Craigslist. Pick up a second job. Start a small business selling items you make, being a handyman, babysitting, or providing some other service. One thing that you can ask here is, what do you love to do? How can you turn that in to a way to make money? You would be surprised the things others do to bring in extra money. And you can do it too!

Final Thoughts

When you make a budget, pay down debt and have an emergency fund, you will be better prepared than most people to weather a crisis that involves your finances. Becoming financially prepared is not hard, you just have to be disciplined. But the pay-off, later on, is huge! Just think about the relief you and your family would feel if, no, when, you experience a financial hiccup.

Action Steps
* Download the SAMPLE BUDGET. Google Sheet [Dropbox Links: Excel Sheet and PDF]
* Start Your Emergency Fund
* Prepare Your Debts in a Debt Snowball and Start Paying Down Debt
* Increase Your Income: Sell Stuff and/or Get a Side Hustle.

Survival for the Common Man is a series of articles for those who are new to prepping or those who never really felt they had a good foundation to start.

Why Survival for the Common Man? I love to gain experiences in wilderness survival, bushcraft, homesteading and “tactical” preparedness. But the truth is, most preppers are regular, everyday people (the common man). We live in the suburbs, go to our day jobs, and attend school and family events. But we also see the world around us and see the need to be prepared, to make sure our family is safe and able to thrive in times of uncertainty. There are more of us than you might realize! This series is for you!

A Smart Financial and Defensive Move – Protecting Your Family and Home When the Doorbell Rings!

Click here to view the original post.

 

Protecting Your Family…

And Doorbell Rings!

 

You feel it and you know it, our world is becoming less safe.  In the preparedness community, we talk about situational awareness, OPSEC, carrying concealed, firearm training and more.  This isn’t a fear based article, if you’ve been paying attention, you know that I’m telling the truth.  We are living in curious times and some may even say dangerous times.

I believe part of this is due to the mainstream media’s willingness to focus on crime and sensational stories. They do that because they need the ratings.  Remember when the news would close out with a positive story?  I haven’t seen too many of those lately!

I also believe the increase in crime is due to our economic situation.  Although the stock market is going through the roof right now, the great financial numbers haven’t really hit main street. I left the grocery store yesterday with 4 small plastic bags that cost $75.00.  Remember when that would buy you a basketful of food!

But life goes on.  We still go to work and the kids still go to school and we hope to make the best life we can.  We use our brains.  We spend less than we make.  We prepare.  We protect. We are aware.  We try to teach our kids to do all the same.  Again, we try to make the best life we can.

A Safe Life

One of the things that I try to ensure for my family is a safe life.  Yes, you can’t always shield them from everything.  But wouldn’t you want to do everything you can to make their world the safest?

I recently took the plunge and purchased a RING Doorbell.  I had looked at them in the past and decided against it because I thought the video storage feature was too much.  But after a recent conversation with a friend, I realized that I was wrong.  When I found out that the video storage was only $30 a year, I bit the bullet and made the purchase.  I’m glad I did!

 

Ring Package

The RING doorbell is one of the easiest hi-tech home safety layer someone can install.  Anyone who can install an APP and follow the directions of a video can do it!  And the great thing is that it comes with everything you need to install it!  The only possible thing that you might need is a drill if you are installing it in brick.  But even then, they provide you with the drill bit.

The RING doorbell comes with all the hardware you need!

In a nutshell…

  1. Download the APP to your phone.  Install it and make an Account. You can download the APP without purchasing the RING and see videos from your neighborhood.
  2. Connect the APP to your Wifi.
  3. Open the RING package and click the orange button on the back of the RING doorbell.
  4. Walk through the connection process that takes a few minutes.
  5. If you have a doorbell, remove it.
  6. Use the level and mark the holes to screw in the base.
  7. Screw in the base and connect the doorbell wires to the base.
  8. Set the RING doorbell on the base
  9. Screw in the security screws at the bottom of the RING doorbell.

 

That’s it!  All along the process, there is a video (see it below) that walks you through the installation, step by step.  They have made this thing foolproof!

Another cool aspect of this is that every member of the family can have the APP installed on their phone.  And, you get a running activity record of who comes up to your front door along with video and sound.

Pairing the RING doorbell with my phone.

The level and base getting screwed in. Doorbell wires are still exposed.

Doorbell wires screwed in and ready for the RING doorbell to get placed on the base.

Screwing in the security screws into the base.

This was too easy!

This is the video that I watched (on my phone) to install the RING. The only thing I didn’t do was turn off my electrical breaker. I like to live on the edge! 🙂  Ok not really….

 

 

The Ring Wi-Fi Enabled Video Doorbell is under $140 on Amazon.  It has 4 STARS and almost 30,000 reviews!  That is right, 30,000 reviews!

I believe the investment in this hi-tech, easy to operate device is worth it.  Just watch some of the videos below.

 

 

Peace,
Todd

Prep for Hard Times: Why You Need an Offline Side-Gig Business Now!

Click here to view the original post.

This is a guest post by Dare Tuitt

Are you earning enough money to pay for all your prepping needs?

Do you have enough money in your cash stash for a bug-out?

Do you have a mountain of debt that holds you back from (fill in the blank)?

Almost everyone I know needs more money to accomplish what they have to do, whether it be to pay for prepping items, pay down personal debt, purchase that getaway land in the American Redoubt areas or simply pay their monthly living expenses. With the escalating financial and political situation looking like it’s heating up as we head into the Mid-term elections, overcoming debt, getting personal finances in order and paying for those extra survival products should now be a priority.

To solve your personal cash crunch, you need a way to make some money as quickly as possible and I advise you do this offline as soon as possible. One of the fastest and easiest ways to earn extra money is by staring a part-time side-gig business.

Further Reading – Position Yourself for Financial SHTF – Practical Steps for Paying Down Debt and Saving Money!

Start a Side-Gig Business Now!

Why am I advising you start an offline business ASAP? Because the recent (and as of the date of this writing, ongoing) rollercoaster ride of the stock market may just be going through the start of a slow-motion tailspin, the effects of which will catch up to all of us in due time, as it ripples through the world economy. Also, the cost of living is not going down! Contrary to the good news about American energy independence due to vastly increased output from less regulation (thank you President Trump!) gasoline and other energy prices still tend to rise and fall based on demand and here in the USA we see them rise ahead of active travel days, like national holidays and due to seasonal weather variations in use. The cost of food is also not going down and there are seasonal price increases every winter just to get the food delivered by semi-trailer trucks and drivers working in extreme winter weather conditions. These are all good examples of reasons why you need an offline side gig business ASAP, to help you get more money NOW. But the real reason why is only beginning to be seen as politics plays an ever-increasing and unwelcome role in our personal economic lives.

Since 9/11, we have seen how technology has been used by the government to consolidate and control citizens. Our own NSA and Homeland Security have been given enormous powers of surveillance. Media of all kinds has also got on board and during the Obama years, we saw more of an unholy alliance begin to form between online Social Media corporations and government, specifically, Left-leaning governments. We see news reports about how, without much of a fight, Facebook, Google, YouTube, Twitter, ( all American-based corporations), have abandoned the rights guaranteed people under the American Constitution, when communist/socialist countries have made it a condition to limit their own citizen’s access to information provided by these online companies. They compromised free and open speech, in order to acquire access to new markets and/or acquire more market share in those respective nations. They sold out their “ideals” for market share.

More ominously here at home, Conservative and Christian Americans are under increasing unfair scrutiny, by social media “review committees” and “speech algorithm scrutiny”, the results of which are stripping out the so-called “objectionable” content in favor of a socially-engineered, exclusive Left-leaning content. The result is the elimination of Christian and Conservative viewpoints from the Internet, with the result (perhaps the intent?) of driving them out of business or greatly reducing their influence. This stuff seems straight out of George Orwell’s 1984, and it’s not going away.

The New World Order Doesn’t Like Your Privacy

New Internet-based technologies being brought to the market involve using your personal data, captured by social media with every keystroke you make on your computer. This information is being used to develop predictive models that ultimately could be used by a hostile government to determine what your political and religious beliefs are, and then treat you accordingly. When coupled with home electricity Smart Meters (now mandated nearly everywhere), automobile tracking devices, electronic surveillance via street cams, Smartphones, and in every HDTV, police and other government agencies can conceivably monitor your life both inside and outside your home 24/7/365. If this doesn’t bother you, it should. In 2018, we may see emerge the beginnings of an even greater Matrix of censorship, control and surveillance over our lives in ways we couldn’t even imagine just 3 years ago. There is research going on right now to weaponize our data using “predictive models” to determine if we are thinking “wrong” for the purposes of stopping crimes before they happen. What if this technology is used on political dissidents?

Once these control mechanisms are established, how long before the Mark of the Beast emerges? How will you earn money if you refuse the that Mark, without which you will not be allowed to “buy or sell?” (Revelation 13:16-17). Since people in the First World are already conditioned to just give away their personal information along with their freedoms and sense of privacy, Spielberg’s Minority Report doesn’t seem so far-fetched.

Having an Internet-based business is fine so far as it goes, but what would you do if “they” make it impossible for you to earn a living online based on your political and religious affiliations? If you do all your business online, what would you do if there’s a crash of the Internet system or a major security breach that steals your online proprietary information or your banking passwords? What can you do if North Korea or Iran attacks the USA with an EMP?

This is why you need an offline business and you need to start it now. You need to earn extra money now, to get yourself and your family more secure, but most importantly, you need a way to earn some income if these other avenues are denied you.

What is a Good Offline Business?

Having a skill you can do that you can earn an income or barter with is a good place to start.

Can you grow things? Are you a master gardener? Grow vegetables and sell them at the local Farmer’s Market. Grow heirloom varieties of vegetables. Consume some, preserve some by canning, and save the seeds to sell them. People pay money for quality heirloom vegetable seeds. This could be a nice side business.

Can you fix things? Appliance repair, home “honey do” projects, car repair are all great skills to have to start a business. Any of these skills can be used to barter for other goods and services.

Find a skill related to something you enjoy doing, such as hunting. Learning how to process game meat is related to hunting, and can be turned into an offline business. Many people enjoy hunting and fishing, but hate processing the meat! Many fishing charter businesses include gutting and processing what their customers catch, for an extra fee. Perhaps you could set up a booth nearby and offer the same service to charter boat captains for a percentage of your fee for each referral they send?

Mowing lawns, weeding, cutting down or pruning trees, going into the national forests (with permit) to harvest fallen trees and scrub, then cut it into firewood and sell by the cord or half-cord. Pick up free pinecones, clean them and resell them as fire starters, Christmas decorations or turn them into natural bird feeders and sell them.

Do you have a truck or van? Help people move things. I know guys who make an extra $300 per day on the weekends alone just by helping young singles move from one apartment to another. Or they help people get furniture or large appliances home after a purchase, so they don’t have to pay higher delivery fees of the stores. They charge extra for carting away the old furniture or appliance to the dump. Sometimes, they sell the appliances to a guy who repairs them and sells them – one side-gig business helping another side-gig business.

Can you cook or bake to perfection? Become a caterer. If you can’t cook, establish your own “roach coach” lunch wagon route and drive through light industrial areas during weekdays. Sell sandwiches, pop, bottled water and snacks. You can even sell someone else’s sandwiches!

These are just a few examples of offline business you can start. The possibilities are endless!

I hope this article has helped you see the importance of having a way to earn extra money, as detached as possible from the threat of the growing “Matrix.” Whether you work your offline business as your full-time job or a side gig – you need to start one NOW.

Your Cooking Kit – The Perfect Stove and Pot Combination For Any of Your Kits!

Click here to view the original post.

Do you have a means to heat some water for coffee or cook your meal in your kit?  You can build a big fire and place your cooking pots directly on coals or a makeshift pot holder (ala bushcraft skills).  But you might want to create a smaller footprint, use fewer resources and make your fire as efficient as possible.

If that is the case, you might be interested in adding a wood gas stove, stainless steel pot combination that is the perfect size for anyone wanting versatility in their kit. This kit is very affordable, sitting at a combined price of just under $40.

The stove is an Ohuhu Stainless Steel Wood Burning Stove.  You can start a fire at the bottom and just add wood or other materials to keep it going, but it really should be used in the Top Lit Updraft Method (TLUD).  This means that you fill the stove up with wood and other dry burning material, you then light it at the top.  As the fire starts, it heats the wood underneath, producing gas.  This gas then travels up the sides of the stove and burns very efficiently, creating a hot and smokeless fire.

The Ohuhu Stove nestles very nicely inside the Alpine MSR Stowaway Pot.  The pot is a stainless steel, 775ml pot.  It comes with a cover and the handle folds over to lock everything in place. The pot also comes with a mesh carrying bag.  Using the cover, I was able to bring 1 cup of water to boil in 4-5 minutes.  See my Instagram video below.

Like I said, this little combo is the perfect size for a bugout bag, GHB or any other survival kit.  The stove nestles inside the pot (make sure you get the 775ml pot) and is very compact.

Check out my pics below.

The Ohuhu Stove nestles nicely in the Alpine pot and can be stored in the mesh bag that comes with the pot.

I include a bag of cotton balls and Vaseline in my mesh bag.

Everything in its place …

All the components unassembled.

 

Assembled!

Fill the Stove all the way with wood to utilize the Top Lit Updraft Method!

Light it up! The wood gas process will start as the wood underneath gets hot.

This is the top piece where the pot sits on.

The pot with 1 cup of water inside.

The pot cover fits securely and helps to bring the water to a quick boil.

This shot is after the water boiled. Notice the charred wood and the jets on the side of the stove that shows the wood gas burning off.

The stove burns efficiently and leaves very little behind. The ash is what is left of the wood that was burned.

SCENARIO – After being forced out of your bug out location by looters, you and your bug out group of 20 people, half of them children, walk for hours in a snowstorm looking for shelter.  You find a 45 foot insulated truck trailer that would be the perfect shelter. Within days of moving in, a family contracts a life-threatening virus.  Sickness and death could spread through the entire group if they stayed.  Throwing them out into the snowstorm would surely mean the infected family’s death.  What would you do in this situation and why?

Prepping in College: Being Prepared for a College Bugout If Necessary

Click here to view the original post.

College Bugout When the SHTF!

 

I was preparing myself for a college bugout!  When my oldest started his last year of high school, I realized that his decisions of if and where he wanted to go to college was going to impact me more than in the pocketbook.  I realized that in the back of my mind, I would always be thinking about how far he actually was from home.  How would he get home if the “world went crazy?”  And what would things be like for him on the way back if the “big one” hit?

Luckily, he chose to go to the local community college and then transferred to a program with the local university.  But, these thoughts came flooding back to me this week when I was emailed by a young college student.  The email read…

I have recently begun prepping as I find it fun and thought-provoking as well as practical. I have been reading some articles from your website and have begun listening to your podcast daily. First, I would like to thank you for putting time and effort into these tasks to help others become more prepared for when SHTF. I also was wondering if you could point me in a good direction to continue prepping. I am a college student and don’t have many funds available but did put some money into a basic bug out bag. Besides improving my bug out bag I’m not sure what my next steps should be. I am living in a dorm (over an hour from my house) so stockpiling food or water is not practical. I didn’t know if you had any suggestions as to how I could best prepare while living on campus. Any thoughts are welcome!

I responded to the email after a few days of thinking about this student’s situation, but I also thought that there are others out there, students, parents and even prepping grandparents, who might be in the same predicament.  So I would like to share and elaborate on my thoughts.

The Bugout Bag

Having a college bugout bag is an important and key element for a university student.  In a collapse or SHTF situation, they are truly in a situation where they should “bugout” to another location.  That location is going to be home or wherever the family will be located, if that is a bugout or retreat location.

The bugout bag is going to have to match the distance that the college student is traveling.  In the email that I received, the college student was only an hour away from home.  In this situation, I would have a minimal bugout bag.  I would have food or snacks that could be eaten on the go, water bottles, a phone charger, a means of defense (more on this below) and a first aid kit.  I would also always have the basics to filter and purify water, make fire, a knife and material to make a crude shelter if needed.  Of course, the bugout needs to reflect the season of the year.  Bugging out in the Spring is going to look and feel a lot different than bugging out in the Winter.

If the distance from college to home is farther and will take days and maybe even weeks, the bugout bag is going to have to be more robust.  For sure, food will have to be more substantial, probably a combination of dehydrated and even some survival tabs to manage hunger.  Water will need to be replenished, so a good filter is needed.  A fire kit, first-aid kit, shelter, defense, map, compass or GPS, and clothes will need to be in place.  Again, the distance and season will determine the specifics.

The bugout bag should always be ready and stored away in a closet.  It is recommended to have a bugout bag regardless if the student has a vehicle to travel home.  You just never know.

There has been a lot written on bugout bags.  For more, visit What Do I Put In My Survival Kit?

Transportation

The perfect bugout would have the student getting in their vehicle and driving home without any issues or even catching a flight back home if they are across the country.  However, not every college student can afford a vehicle on campus and you can’t count on a flight.  After all, we are talking about bugging out from college.  You never know which SHTF situation you are really prepping for!

The next best option would be a bicycle.

If a bicycle can be kept locked up and not stolen, I think a regular mountain bike would do.  The college student should have a spare tube, manual pump, and tools to change the tire if needed.  They also make puncture proof tubes that might be of interest.

If the bicycle is not safe just being locked up outside somewhere, then a foldable bicycle that can go under the bed might be required.  There are foldable bikes on the market that are made well and are reasonably priced.

The plus side of having a bike on campus is that the college student could use it to get around too.

Routes Home

Regardless of the mode of transportation, the college student needs to have various routes home.  A search on Google maps will give a student or their family member helping them prepare options.  Once several routes are established.  It would be a good idea for the student to take the various routes home when they visit home to make sure the routes are safe to travel, what concerns they might have and if there are any potential resources that could be utilized in a bugout home.

Defense

Defense is a big topic in the preparedness community.  It should be for college students too.  Unfortunately, most colleges are liberal snowflake hubs.  The State of Texas does allow college students to conceal carry on campus, but there are still rules that prohibit concealed carry in certain areas of the campus.

Other states that allow concealed carry on college campuses are:  Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Mississippi, Oregon, Tennessee, Utah, Wisconsin.  SOURCE

One way that students can defend themselves if they can’t carry a firearm is with pepper spray.  Students should be familiar with their pepper spray and practice on deploying it quickly.

Information

This area is very important and one that the college student should take seriously.  Our world is so fast paced and everyone is so connected that if an SHTF event was to happen, people would know pretty quickly.  The problem is that college students don’t always pay attention to the news and what is going on in the world.

The good news is that almost every college student is plugged into social media.  Like it was mentioned above, news travels fast.  The hope is that college students will see any important news and events going on and monitor the situation to see if they will need to respond.

One social media that young people use is Twitter.  Twitter can be very helpful to gather information fast.  Personally, I use Twitter for news.  That is the reason I only follow news organizations (mainstream and alternative news) on Twitter. It is very easy to open the Twitter APP and scroll a little bit to see if anything significant is going on.

In an SHTF situation, it might be beneficial for a college student to have a means to listen to radio reports, shortwave and weather.  A good, handheld crank, solar, battery operated emergency radio is nice to have.

If the grid goes down, due to cyber terrorism or an EMP, a small handheld ham radio, like the Baofeng, enclosed in a small faraday cage will be invaluable.

Closing Thoughts

Being away from home and in the middle of an SHTF situation, the college student’s first priority should be to get home.  A little bit of thought and consideration should be given to getting home.  Parents can help their child with purchasing the gear they might need and helping them think through some of the plans they should have in place if they ever needed to bugout from college.

Todd

The ferro rod feels good in your hands.  It doesn’t slip like many smaller versions.  There is not much to say about the scraper and paracord.  The waterproof tinder holder is nice, but I couldn’t get the tinder to light.  Some videos online make it seem like it works like a match, but I could never get it to happen with the ferro rod.  I did get it to light with a lighter, so I know it can happen.  I wondered if the cotton had some sort of accelerant on it, but after emailing Survival Hax, I was informed it didn’t.  It is just a very compacted form of cotton.

In hindsight, I should have taken the time to open up the cotton and use it that way, but like I said, I was looking at some of the videos I saw online.  I thought that if it worked like a match, it would be really awesome.  In the future, I will probably include my own tinder in the container.

I wouldn’t bet my life on the whistle.  It does blow and make noise, but I would prefer a metal type whistle to add to my kit.

The reason that you would go with this ferro rod compared to others on Amazon are the extras like the paracord, waterproof tinder container and scraper.  You can often find it on sale on Amazon.

Your survival kit needs quality gear that you can count on when the time comes to depend on it.  One of the important components of any kit you have should be the ability to make fire.  A good fire kit is important.  And a good fire kit has many options and ways to make fire, including a ferrocerium (ferro) rod.

A ferro rod that you should consider for your survival and fire kit is the Survival Hax 6″ Ferro Rod with Waterproof Tinder Holder.  It is a solid piece of gear that comes with a few extras that provides redundancy in your preps.

The Survival Hax Ferro Rod comes with:

  • a 6″ ferrocerium rod
  • 5 feet of Paracord in the form of a lanyard
  • a scraper that includes a bottle opener, hex wrench, and ruler
  • a waterproof tinder holder with cotton

Surviving the Disaster in California – Important Lessons Learned

Click here to view the original post.

Prep Lessons Learned From A Disaster
Reporting from Montecito, California,

in the hardest hit area of the flood.

 

For the past three years, I have been a member of the Prepper Community, absorbing every article with great interest, archiving, bookmarking, running out to keep my food and prepping supplies in order. Today, I would like to share with you the first-hand account of the tenacity, bravery, and amazing stories in a small community of 10,000 people in the State of California.

A firestorm that began in Ventura after Thanksgiving moved across 440 square miles of mountain terrain, finally burning into the previous fires and extinguishing itself. With every fire, the next chapter is the rains and the havoc they leave behind.

Let me go back in time, so you can formulate a picture in your mind of the timeline of events and the scope of the disaster that is unfolding.

It was the week before Thanksgiving and family, guests and friends were arriving for all the usual celebrations in Northern Santa Barbara. My hubby and I were looking forward to our vacation in Idaho. Our rental home in Montecito was the last thing on our mind. We lived and raised our children in this home for twenty-five years. It was a beautiful enclave of homes situated among hundred year Oak Trees.

While sipping warm drinks in Idaho, my brother sends me a text to inform me of a fire that was moving rapidly from North of Santa Paula to Ventura, Ca. The day, Monday, December 5th. We kept a close eye on the developments in California and realized that we had to take the Northern most route into California due to freeway closures along the coast. The fire was heading towards Ojai, California and the concern was that it would jump the mountain range at Lake Casitas and head to Toro Canyon.

The Disaster Before the Disaster

On December 10th, we leave at 5:00 a.m., from Idaho and head through Oregon on Highway 95 to avoid the closure of the main coastal route into Santa Barbara, Ca. The weather conditions are icy and low visibility. We are traveling in the dark, on a highway, we are not familiar with, in poor visibility, with temperatures at 4 degrees. I have a go bag and feel extremely tense as we are the only car on the highway,

We make our way through all the mountain passes and drive 16 hours, but as we begin to enter the Santa Barbara area from the North, the plume of smoke and ash is extensive. Thankful to make our way to our home, we are carefully tracking the fire which has now jumped the mountain range and moved into Carpinteria.

We are certain the fire is heading directly for our home in Montecito, so we tell our tenants to leave and from there it is a tense week while we watch a fire obliterate the hills and houses all around us. As the fire exits and moves on, we return to see our home intact, but spot fires had burned all the landscape around our garage and guest cottage. The firefighters did an amazing job holding the fire back. But this is only the beginning of the devastation.

Without water, my husband and I begin to drive up the mountain towards the water tanks, we begin to realize the extent of the damage that the Thomas Fire left in its’ path. One hundred year Oak Trees were reduced to trunks and stumps, massive boulders were standing out like pearls on an ocean floor all along the mountain ranges. Hillsides that were once covered in brush, were now barren and exposed. More importantly, those were no longer just hiking trails, they were vertical slopes, with nothing to hold back the charred debris that was now littering the hillsides.

Disaster “On Our Doorstep”

When the announcement of the first winter storm hit the airwaves, we knew that if the rain was heavy, the floods would most likely destroy our home. On Monday, January 8th, we put sandbags and plywood in front of the doors and advised our tenants to leave. We pass by our neighbor’s house not realizing we would never see him again.

At 3:50 a.m., Tuesday, January 9 a flash flood, evacuate immediately warning was broadcasted on our phones. One hour later, my husband’s cell phone rings, it was his brother who lives down the road from us. They were trapped on the second floor of their home after a mudslide and had battery life on their cell phones, but no data. What was going on? They were cut-off from outside communications and did not dare go downstairs knowing there was a massive landslide.

Due to darkness, no one could foresee the tragedy that was unfolding in our close-knit community. At 7:00 a.m. my husband’s brother and wife begin making their way through the debris, only to realize that everything is destroyed and they are literally looking at 8-foot walls of mud, overturned cars, and debris everywhere.

They find a beloved neighbor dead in the debris and begin searching for his wife. She is alive but badly injured, their home had a twenty foot by a thirty-foot wide wall of mud and debris crash through it. Another neighbor is trapped in their home and carried out. They were in bed without any clothing and unable to climb out.

Many people are swept from their beds, houses literally wiped off the foundations, as the debris moved at speeds of thirty miles per hour or more through roads and creeks. From West Cold Springs Creek, six miles across the Los Padres Range to Toro Canyon, the face of the charred mountain let loose and buried everything for two and a half miles, all the way to the Pacific Ocean. The mudflow through our neighbors home was over twenty feet high by thirty feet wide.

The Danger of Too Much Disaster Stress

Nothing can prepare humans for unexpected devastation. Furthermore, humans can only process so much and then they shut down and tune out. This is exactly what happened in the days leading up to this storm.

The Thomas Fire was a 24/7 media event that resulted in people either losing their homes or, like us, staying glued to the computer and television trying to figure out if our home was still standing. After seven days of being evacuated and non-stop media, blaring doom and gloom, people were relieved to be home and the bad news behind them. Over 85% of the people that were told to mandatorily evacuate for possible flooding, did not heed the warning. The highest number of fatalities were along the creeks in the voluntary evacuation zone.

Many people felt the warnings were overkill, myself included. While I could see the threat, I could not conceive of the scenario that is before us today.

Lessons from Being On the Ground

Lessons to learn from this, yes, be prepared. Many people had no utilities and were trapped by the mud. They had to shelter in place until the first responders could dig their way to them.

Two, keep your phones charged at all times. This was the only way the responders could know where you were. Over 600 calls to 911 were made by people stating they were trapped.

See – EDC for Regular People and Then Some! The One Item You’ll Go Back Home For!

Three, taking a hike up the mountain, confirmed for me the danger we were in after the fire. Many people did not understand what was behind their homes on the hillsides. Know your neighborhood!

See – Tools to Help You Maintain Situational Awareness in Your Local Community!

Four, be friends with your neighbors. Those that have lost everything need you.

Five, mud and debris are damn dangerous. We tried to hike around to get to our brother-in-law’s home and I became stuck in two feet of mud. My husband found a large branch and put it next to me. I had to methodically hand dig each foot out by hand. He had to just keep me from panicking and stay out of the mudflow, otherwise, he would be trapped, too. It is really hard to remain calm.

Stay with a buddy. You will get into trouble and it is not safe.

Prepping is also about “love thy neighbor.” We are now going in and helping everyone dig out. Many times on prepping websites I have read comments about abandoning people who are not prepared. Read the Bible. The level of destruction in an event is beyond human comprehension. Use all your resources and help others. You can build them back again if necessary.

Finally, if all the experts are telling you they are concerned and to get out, don’t be a hero. Right now, there are 19 dead people, ages 3 to 89. A community of 10,000 people has been destroyed. It could take years to bring this area back. Mother Nature is a cruel reminder of how insignificant we are and how we cannot control or foresee every situation, no matter how prepared.

This is a guest post.

Survival for the Common Man – Your Primary Shelter

Click here to view the original post.

Survival for the Common Man – Your Primary Shelter
Don’t Fear the Unknown! Get Prepared!

 

There are a few important necessities for survival. One of these important necessities is shelter. However, when you journey into the area of preparedness, articles on shelter tend to focus on shelters that are built out in the woods. Although it is important to know some of those types of shelters (see below), the common man needs to understand how important their “regular” everyday or primary shelter is to their survival.

The common man needs to have a shelter that is structurally sound and can provide protection from extreme cold and heat.

Structurally Sound

It is not in the scope of this article to discuss architectural safety in regards to your primary shelter. If your walls are falling in, you have some big issues to deal with! Instead, I would like to point out that the “common man” should be prepared to identify and temporarily correct any situations that can potentially hinder the integrity of his/her shelter.

For example, after Hurricane Ike, a friend had some roof damage. Shingles were torn off and more rain was forecasted for the week. This could have caused more damage to his home, water leaks, mold, sheetrock damage, etc.. However, he was prepared with some blue plastic tarps and the materials to tact them down to his roof. This provided the time necessary for a professional roofer to come in an fix the shingles.

Having the basic skills, supplies and tools to protect your home shelter is important.

Extreme Temperature

If you live in a tropical climate that never sees any wide temperature swings throughout the year, then this section is not for you! That type of climate, although it can be found, is not common! This section focuses on more variable climates, heat and cold. It is in these variable climates, even when you believe you are ok, that the need for shelter becomes the most important.

The main issues here is that you need to maintain your core temperature!

Hyperthermia is elevated body temperature due to failed thermoregulation that occurs when a body produces or absorbs more heat than it dissipates. Extreme temperature elevation then becomes a medical emergency requiring immediate treatment to prevent disability or death.

 

The opposite is hypothermia, which occurs when the temperature drops below that required to maintain normal metabolism.

Source

Note the body temperature that your body should maintain in the graphic above.

Shelter from the Heat – Hot weather can make life very uncomfortable. But besides becoming sweaty and smelly, hot weather can easily kill you or your loved ones. You need to have shelter from the heat, plenty of water to drink and a means to cool off if possible. Shade and open spaces where a breeze can flow through are very important.

Shelter from the Cold Being too cold is different than being in the heat in that when you’re hot, you want open spaces to let the breeze through. In cold, you want to get “small” and layer your space as well as your clothes.

For example, most people know that you should layer clothes. That way, if your body gets cold or warms up, you can add or take-off clothes layers as needed. But you can also do this in your shelter. If you are in a situation where your shelter is cold, you can try “layering” your shelter or room. Do this by having everyone in the house/shelter stay in one room. Cover up windows and any places where drafts can come through (don’t close off the room so tight that oxygen doesn’t come in, you’ll run the risk of suffocation). You can also utilize another layer by setting up a tent in your room. Besides all of this, you should make sure that you have plenty of blankets and portable heaters if possible, remember proper ventilation.

Shelter Out in the Wild

Many articles and videos have been done on shelters outside in the wild. For examples on various shelters, visit the shelter tag on Prepper Website – here and here.

Here, I would like to share one shelter for handling extreme cold out in the wild. It is the Super Shelter, first made known by Mors Kochanski. Check out these two videos by Dave Canterbury on how to construct one.

 

Final Thoughts

Your shelter is important. We don’t always understand how important our shelter is until we don’t have one. For the common man, knowing how to survive in hot or cold temperatures is important. Preparing when you don’t need it will sure come in handy if you ever do need it!

_____________________________________________
Survival for the Common Man is a series of articles for those who are new to prepping or those who never really felt they had a good foundation to start.

Why Survival for the Common Man? I love to gain experiences in wilderness survival, bushcraft, homesteading and “tactical” preparedness. But the truth is, most preppers are regular, everyday people (the common man). We live in the suburbs, go to our day jobs, and attend school and family events. But we also see the world around us and see the need to be prepared, to make sure our family is safe and able to thrive in times of uncertainty. There are more of us than you might realize! This series is for you!

DIY Altoids Fire Kit – So You Can Be Manly and Stuff!

Make Your Own Altoids Fire Kit

 

Every preparedness minded person should know how to make a fire!  You should know this skill even if you live in the city and don’t get out to the wild much!  You never know when you might need to start-up a grill, start a fire to warm yourself or impress that pretty woman with your manly outdoor survival skills! 😉 

Your fire crafting skills should be complemented with a fire kit.  Fire kits don’t have to be very elaborate.  In fact, they should be kept pretty simple.  An example of a fire kit that you can easily put together is this DIY Altoids Fire Kit.

Here are the contents of this Fire Kit:

1 – Altoids Tin

2 – Tea Light Candles

2 – Big Birthday Candles

1 – Mini-Bic Lighter

4-5 – Waterproof/Windproof Matches

1 – Striker (comes with the matches)

1 – Baggy with Cotton Balls and Vaseline 

The contents pack very neatly in the tin!

One word about the matches.  I had every intention of making my very own waterproof matches using Strike Anywhere Matches.  However, I can’t seem to find Strike Anywhere Matches Anywhere!  Even on Amazon, the stock is hit or miss.  I would recommend if you happen to find some, to grab a box or two.  There is one thing to remember about the “NEW” Strike Anywhere Matches.  They are now “green” and don’t have the red phosphorus match head.  Some reviews on Amazon say they don’t work as well as the old red ones, but they seem to be good enough…if you can find them.

I found the UCO Stormproof matches in the camping section of Walmart.  But you can also find them on Amazon – CLICK HERE.  

Check out my video of the UCO Stormproof Matches below.  They are pretty cool!

When You’re Separated from your Primary Kit – Your Backup EDC Kit

Click here to view the original post.

Do You Have a Backup EDC Kit?

 

One of the first things new preppers like to do is to put together their own kit.  It is fun and exciting to put together your own kit.  It’s even more fun when you get to use your kit to help practice your preparedness, survival or bushcraft skills. Prepared minded people should carry their kit with them on a regular basis.  But what happens when that kit is lost or stolen?  Do you have a backup EDC kit?

Survival Hax has come out with a pretty robust little EDC Keychain.  It is the 10 in 1 Paracord EDC Keychain with Waterproof Pill Bottle.

The kit consists of:

1 – Waterproof EDC container
1 – Paracord – 4 feet when untied
1 – Fishing line
2 – Hooks
2 – Weights
2 – Floaters
2 – Sinkers
2 – Swivels
1 – Knife
1 – Tinder cotton
1 – Firestarter
1 – Saftey Pins
1 – Finger saw
1 – Whistle
1 – Carabiner

Some Observations

When I unscrewed the waterproof pill bottle, I had a hard time getting the fishing gear out of the bottom.  I had to eventually “fish it out” with my knife. However, a simple stick would have worked.  However, I did need a knife to access the rest of the gear inside.  The gear was bunched together with a zip tie (see pic below).  I could have eventually worked it out, but it was on their good!

The hand saw is the type that usually gets a bad reputation out there in survival forums.  However, most don’t use them like they are supposed to be used.  If I was in a survival situation, I would create a bow saw with the rings that are attached to the keychain.  The video below shows you exactly what I’m talking about.

 

 

I don’t really like to fish, so I didn’t unwrap all the fishing line.  But my friend Ken over at Survivaltek did a review on this same Keychain and did catch a fish and started a fire.  You can check out his review – CLICK HERE.

Final Thoughts

This isn’t your primary EDC Survival Kit.  This is a secondary or “emergency” one.  The items that make up this Survival Keychain can be used in a real emergency setting if needed.

You can purchase the kit on Survival Hax website or Amazon, where it has 21 reviews and is rated at 4.8 STARS.

Prepper Advice for Newbies and More from the Group

Click here to view the original post.

Prepper Advice You Can Use!

 

The step into preparedness can be overwhelming.  There are so many websites offering prepper advice, so many possible doomsday scenarios and so many lists detailing what you should buy.  Going it alone can be daunting. Going it alone can cause you to make some costly mistakes.  So, it is wise for the new prepper, or even those prepping for a few years now, to take some time to learn from others who have gone before.

I recently asked the good people over at the Prepper Website Facebook Group, what advice would they give to newbie preppers and those who have been at it for 1-2 years.  Their contributions follow below.

Newbie into Preparedness

Verne – You got to know what you are prepping for in order to properly prepare. Dig into identifying natural (hurricanes, etc) and man-made (terror, war, crime etc). Which ones will have the highest likelihood of occurring and the highest impact. Prep towards those.

For more on Verne’s advice see – Survival for the Common Man – Where to Start

Erica (website – Living Life in Rural Iowa) – Gather knowledge and learn about what you are preparing for before diving in. Start slowly and buy quality food and things. It might take you longer to prepare, but by having the knowledge and spending your money wisely, you will be better prepared.

For more see – Position Yourself for Financial SHTF – Practical Steps for Paying Down Debt and Saving Money!

Linda – It is always better to be prepared for power outages and what you will need like candles or oil lamps.  Have enough for several days and nights.  Here in KY, we have ice storms and the power can be out for days,   Have ready to eat foods and another way to heat your home and have extra water.

An article of interest – Lights Out! NW Houston Edition: Lessons for Non-Preppers!

William – Don’t feel that you have to spend all kinds of money on preps up front. Just do a little at a time. Look for bargains & deals. Also, one thing my brother told me was to try and find 2 or more uses for something.. i.e. Paracord. Of course, that doesn’t go for everything. The very first thing I would advise to do though is to get a get-home bag put together. If you can’t make it home, your preps won’t do you any good!

See the Kit Link Bomb Page with Tons of Links on Various Kits!

Barbara – Remember to focus on your relationship with your spouse, partner, or dear friend so that during hard times, areas of friction won’t become blisters that pop.

See – It’s Getting Crazy Out There – Don’t Be Distracted! An Open Letter to Family & Friends

John – Never stop learning and never get complacent or content thinking you’re fully prepared. You’ll never be. Always plan on Mr. Murphy. Never quit training and practicing. Know your gear and supplies so you can go through it with your eyes closed.

For a great preparedness tool, check out – The Prepper Tool That You’re Not Using!

2-3 Years Into Preparedness

Erica (website – Living Life in Rural Iowa) – Reassess your preps. Reassess your reason for preparing. We should always be preparing, but sometimes our reasons change, our lives change, and our circumstances change. Look at your preps with an eye for what is going on in your life now versus then.

 

Anonymous – Remember supplies will run out….there will not be stores…so knowledge is best… Ask yourself what you will do when this happens…or that happens. How did our ancestors do things? Can you grow your own food for the year? Preserve it? Are you eating now how you will be eating in SHTF situations? I basically think about: Can I make my own? Break your needs down into groups and then ask yourself how you can get by for several years if things go south and society is not as it is now. Food? (No stores) Seeds for gardening, lighting, heating, clothing, communication, shelter, storing food, entertainment, schooling, medical (this is a biggy…may not have Dr’s around) and dig deep into each subject. Remember to try and have 3 ways for doing things….or three different items to use in an SHTF situation. (Three ways to store food, three ways to make clothing, three ways for each illness…

Make sure you visit  Prepper Website for the best in Preparedness, Self-Reliance, Homesteading, and More!

If you’re on Facebook, you might enjoy the Prepper Website Facebook Group.  It is made up of a great group of self-reliant, preparedness minded people.  You are welcome to come check it out – CLICK HERE.

Self-Reliant Skills: Sharpening A Buck Saw Now and When the SHTF

Click here to view the original post.

Sharpening A Buck Saw Now and When the SHTF

 

We are so “modern” that we have lost many important skills, like sharpening buck saw blades. Fortunately, sharpening skills aren’t too physically intensive, but it does take a little know how.  And although we have lost many of these skills through our “modern way” of living, the internet and Youtube provide us with great instructional tutorials that can help us practice and hone our skills. 

Recently, I came across a three-part video by Old Sneelock’s Workshop that walks you through how to sharpen a buck saw blade. 

Personally, I believe that buck saws are an important and easier tool to cut wood with than an ax.  Through the years, I have linked to videos of bushcrafters who only carry a blade into the woods and then fabricate their own buck saw in the wild.  I think it is a great strategy. 

I know that I can easily take a saw blade to a local hardware store and get it sharpened for a few bucks.  But, I believe that if we ever find ourselves in a true SHTF situation, that having the tools and the skills to sharpen our blades will be very important, especially if we are depending on fires for our main sources of cooking and heat.

I hope you get a chance to view these videos below and visit more of Old Sneelock’s videos.

Preparedness Tip: Trash OPSEC

Click here to view the original post.

What the heck is trash OPSEC (operational security)?  Well, it is something that you should take seriously!

You’ve enjoyed your holiday, opened presents and put things together.  The last thing you want is to take out your trash and let every thief in town know exactly what you have in your house.

It takes two seconds to break down boxes and put them in big trash bags or even oversized 55-gallon contractor bags, which you should have anyway because there are so many preparedness applications for them.

Preparedness is about making good decisions, all the time.  Even when taking out the trash!

SCENARIO – You hear a noise in the back of your house, and you found about 12 orphans scavenging for food in your garbage cans.  They appear to be kids under 6, 7 years old.  Taking them in would diminish your supply timeline by 50% and you aren’t sure you can replenish your supplies once they run out.  Plus it would take manpower to watch over all of them, and you can spare little since everyone in your camp is constantly exhausted from hard work and rationed meals.  Leaving these kids to their fates would mean their deaths, or worse. How would you handle this situation?

GRAPHIC: USA vs North Korea – Military Comparison

Click here to view the original post.

With “Rocket Man” getting bolder and North Korea’s missiles getting better with each launch, I have seen more concern about the possibilities of Nuclear War.  We recently published an article entitled, “Nuclear Attack Strategies: Knowing How They Think Is Half the Battle,” that gives some insight into the possible “thinking” behind North Korea’s and other nations nuclear weapon’s stockpile.  But the concern still remains.  It would be helpful to see a visual military comparison.

This Infographic, provided by Hunting Mark, compares the military of the United States vs. North Korea.  It is a good visual of where the two countries stand militarily.

– Todd

The USA vs North Korea

 

 

This strategy involves a weak opponent challenging a stronger opponent, hence the name ‘asymmetric’ meaning ‘unequal’. The idea is for the smaller country to intentionally escalate a conflict to the point that they use a small (maybe battlefield) nuclear weapon in apparent defense of their country or interests against the larger “aggressor”. Ideally, the smaller country could destroy a carrier group or remote island military base as an example of their willingness to use their weapons. Then, they hold their larger weapons in reserve and tell the larger country and the world, “you might destroy us, but we will make sure and take out one or more of your major cities”. The smaller country hopes that the larger country will not be willing to sacrifice millions of their citizens to take out a small country (or dictator). So, the larger country reaches a stalemate with the smaller country. This strategy becomes even more effective if the smaller country can locate their limited warhead inventory onto ships, submarines or even smuggle them into the larger country.
