UST Base Tube Tarp 1.0 Reviews

Click here to view the original post.


A tarp tent is a wonderful addition to your bug out bag as it can be used in many different ways. A tarp tent is a tarpaulin, a plastic or nylon sheet, used in place of a tent. It is usually rigged with poles, tent pegs, and guy lines. Ultralight backpackers use tarp tents because they are easy to set up and lightweight compared to other backpacking shelters which makes for a more pleasant hike. Especially if you need a quick shelter when hit with a sudden downpour.

 

Recently I was looking for a good, reliable tarp/tent for my husband. We wanted something light, durable, and affordable. We decided, at the recommendation of others, on the UST Base Tube Tarp/tent 1.0. (Ultimate Survival Technologies) We have never been happier with a purchase.

UST Base Tube Tarp 1.0 Features and Specs:

• Ultra-light, compact, tubular tarp protects against foul weather
• Multi-use tube tarp can be used as a ground cloth or sleeping tent
• Reverses for reflective signaling surface
• Flame-retardant
• Sets up in minutes
• Compact and easy to transport
• Aluminized side provides thermal insulation and reflectivity for signaling
Hidden zipper transforms the tarp into a tube-shaped sleeping tent, providing protection from the damp ground below and the elements above
• Can be used as a sleeping tent or all-weather tarp
• Complete instructions are included and also conveniently located on the exterior of the stuff sack
• Includes stuff sack, guy lines, and steel stakes
• Erected HxWxD: 39” x 84” x 35” (99 x 213 x 89cm)
• Packed HxWxD: 15” x 4” x 4” (381 x 102 x 102mm)
• Weight: 1lb 12 oz. (794g)

We did a lot of shopping around and found the UST Tube Tarp to be one of the most affordable, reliable and used ones out there. Before this was shown to me the only recommended tarps I found were $80 or more. That can really hit your pocket if you have 4 bug out bags to supply for. that was a nice change from expensive basic gear. Below are some wonderful review videos for you to check out and decide for yourself if this will be an addition to your bug out or camping gear. A list of products in the videos will be posted at the end of the article.

My Favorite Survival Books

Click here to view the original post.

With Christmas coming around the corner I want to share some of my favorite new survival books of this year.

What better way to learn than by reading? Be it factual or fictional there are all kinds of good books to read. Bobby Akart and Dr. Bones and Nurse Amy are some of the best authors I know of. Bobby Akart writes fictional true stories that haven’t happened yet. His words. 🙂 Dr bones and Nurse Amy have a goal set in mind to teach as many people as possible how to treat medical emergencies at home so that we can take care of our families in a disaster. Both of the authors should be on all book shelves.

The Survival Medicine Handbook by Dr.Bones and Nurse Amy is a must have for every home. Not only preppers. The Survival Medicine Handbook is a 670 page detailed guide for those who want to be medically prepared for any disaster where help is NOT on the way. The third (2016) edition of The Survival Medicine Handbook is not your standard first aid book: Unlike other so-called “survival” medical books, it assumes that a disaster, natural or man-made, has removed all access to hospitals or doctors for the foreseeable future; you, the average person, are now the highest medical resource left to your family. The Survival Medicine Handbook will give you the tools, in plain English, to competently handle injuries and illness for any situation that leaves you as the end of the line with regards to your family’s medical well-being

Bobby Akart has a post-apocalyptic series titled “The Boston Brahmin Series” is fantastic! There are 6 books in this series and each book takes you deep inside of our corrupt government with The Loyal Nine as America descends into societal and economical collapse.

 

 

“With social unrest sweeping the country, Europe on the brink of war and the U.S. economy under siege by foreign nations, a new threat emerges. The nation is caught in the crosshairs of a power struggle between wealthy oligarchs and the political leaders who claim to have the country’s best interests at heart.

As the collapse events escalate, enter The Loyal Nine – direct descendants of the Founding Fathers, a modern day Knights Templar whose mission is to protect America, and the republic, from those who would inflict tyranny upon her.

But will America be destroyed from within? Conditions of war are building and they do not involve bullets and bombs. There is a new battleground – cyberspace. As the country descends into decline economically and socially, will America be caught off guard by a threat never before experienced – a devastating Cyber War?”

It is definitely worth the read and will turn any non believer into a prepper very quickly. As Bobby says, “This is a true story. It just hasn’t happened yet.”

Book One: THE LOYAL NINE

Book Two: CYBER ATTACK

Book Three: MARTIAL LAW

Book Four: FALSE FLAG

Book Five: THE MECHANICS

Book Six: CHOOSE FREEDOM

A few others of my favorites written by Bobby Akart are:

Cyber Warfare

EMP

36 hours (The Blackout Series Book 1)

Zero Hour (The Blackout Series Book 2)

Turning Point (The Blackout Series Book 3)

EnerPlex Jumpr Slate 5K Power Bank Review

Click here to view the original post.

EnerPlex has designed an amazing charger that fits in your purse, your school/work binder, planners or briefcase. Let’s get down with the specks on this bad boy.

This ultra-thin mobile power bank that features 5,100 mAh battery capacities. In layman’s terms, it will charge 2-3 smart chargers before needing a recharge itself. It has up to 16 hours talk time and can charge multiple devices at the same time without interfering with the charge time. The powerbank will also shut off automatically when your device is done charging, saving it’s own energy. There is a battery status indicator light so you know when it is time to charge the power bank back up. To charge my phone to 100% it took on average 3-4 hours.

The Enerplex comes with a tethered micro-USB output so you can hook it up to any device with a USB port. It also has a micro USB input and USB output ports. So you can charge your phone, tablets, iPod or Androids. It comes with a USB cable to recharge your power bank. Enerplex offers a power bank for all your I Pod products as well as one for droid users. I found them ranging from $40.00 to 73.00.

Weighing in at 0.44 pounds this paper thin device is only 8mm thick with a stamped aluminum case for durability. This makes it very durable and scratch resistant. It is like heavy duty stiff rubber. I have to tell you, it is one of the only power banks I have had that I don’t feel the need to “Handle with care”.  My husband and the scouts went camping multiple times with it and it did not fail us. I carry it daily in my purse and everyone knows how brutal that can be. My husband also carries it in his lap top bag to work and he carries his bag when he rides his Harley to work.  On multiple occasions I have let my teenage daughter take it to school and it came back in one piece. It is very durable and worth adding to your prepping supplies or to use every day. We use it every day and store one in our bug out bag.

 

This power bank gets two thumbs up from me!!

Grid Down: Heart & Blood Pressure Care

Click here to view the original post.

It is important to realize and understand that if we ever have a grid down situation or some sort of natural disaster that prevented us from getting our medication, a lot of people will die. Diabetics, epileptics, anyone with heart disease. You name it. So what can you learn and put into play that will help you with the disability that you have?

Well we can help with that! Below we have another cheerful video by ThePatriotNurse.  She talks about what sorts of herbal medicine will help with your heart health and in possible emergencies. She gives a brief crash course on how the heart works and all the vessels. Her description simplifies the basic way the heart works.

Neglect of the body over time can manifest into high blood pressure and different kinds of arrhythmia. So what happens if we no longer have pills and medicine to help us out? She talks about different herbs you can incorporate into your daily routine easily and store some for grid down. Cayenne, Garlic, Hawthorn Berries, and Ginger plus tons more than can help you all through life.

Patriot Nurse shares with us her four “must have” books. (Listed at the bottom of the page.) Reference books can always be helpful and beneficial in assisting you in an emergency.

We hope you enjoy watching ThePatriotNurse. Please feel free to comment and share your knowledge with fellow preppers

The Reality of 2 Weeks of Food Storage

Click here to view the original post.

The thought of food storage can be very overwhelming, especially if you are new to being self sufficient. You have just realized the need for food-storage and the dangers of what is happening in the world. So now what are you going to do about it? You may find some very good answers in the video below.

The best answer that I have is research and lots of it. You Tuber ObessivePrepperAz shares her thoughts on an easy and affordable way to start off making sure you have two weeks’ worth of food. She walks you through how to calculate food storage for your family and points out some very helpful hints.

However, ObsessivePrepperAZ is just touching on the bare minimum you will need in her video, but by adding things like rice or noodles to some of your storage you can turn one can of soup into a pot of stew. Her tips and secrets are very helpful for a beginner prepper.

She focuses on how many cans of Campbell Chunky Soup you would need for one meal a day. One of her viewers suggested a very effective way to stretch those cans to feed four people 2 or 3 meals per day. That is a LOT more than one can of soup for one person.

“Tip: Double that food storage with one bag of rice, one bag of dried potatoes, and two packs of cubed bullion. Take two cans of that chunky soup, add I cup rice OR potatoes, and a bullion, add at least 3 cups water; make it into a large pot of stew. Feeds four, 2-3 meals per day. Stew is salvation.”

We hope you enjoy her suggestions and please feel free to comment some of your tips and advice to help the newbies!! We all have to help each other become reliant on ourselves.

Building an Emergency Medical Bag

Click here to view the original post.

Building your own emergency medical kit is a huge priority and can be some what over whelming. Having first aid supplies for different types of emergencies is important as well. You will want these on hand at home, in you’re vehicle or in a bug out situation.

From a different perspective, most of us have already started our own kits with out even realizing it, especially if you have children. A lot of times it is simply scattered all over the house and needs to be brought together in one bag being easily accessible when it is needed.

You Tuber PreparedMind101 has prepared an updated video of the medical to-go bag he carries. As he puts it, his “Holy crap what just happened bag”. The bag is really nice and seems well constructed. He has invested around $200 into it so far with a few items left to go. (Voodoo Tactical Men’s Universal Medic Bag) He shares the items he has put in there and asks for comments on things he might of missed. (For a list of the items shown in the video, look under the video.)

Whether you are buying a pre made kit or building your own that is tailored for your family, it’s going to cost you a pretty penny. All I have to say about that is “You get what you pay for”.

Raising and Butchering Rabbits Part 1

Click here to view the original post.

When it becomes mandatory for us to raise our own food to feed our families, space can become an issue for many reasons. You may have thought that raising and butchering rabbits was out of the question if you live in urban areas, within city limits, or live in a small town but still live in an apartment or perhaps even rent a house.

Well we have good news! It is possible to accomplish feeding your family the old fashioned way verses the supper market way if you live in tight quarters. Raising rabbits might be an option for you. It is very cost effective, delicious and taste better than processed store meat. You avoid paying sales taxes, all the chemicals and antibiotics that are added and is overall healthier for you as well.

The New Survivalist provides us with a series of videos that walk us through how to get started and what you need.  In part one, (shown below) he shows wonderful tips and tricks to maximize space and keep the environment clean for the rabbits. He shares everything from what kind of rabbits to choose when starting, the supplies you will need, manure pros, how he sets up a simple watering system, nesting boxes, baby saver wire and many other things you will need to know.

In part two of his series he goes over his rabbits habitat, breeding them and birthing the bunnies according to “Story’s Guide to Raising..,” by Bob Bennet. He shows us how to prepare the nesting box and the bunnies that were just born in one.

We hope you enjoy this video and please feel free to leave some comments and advise in the comment section below!

Survival Training for Kids PT1 (Video)

Click here to view the original post.

Survival training is very important for us to learn as adults but also for our children. When we think about natural disasters hitting us, or getting turned around somehow while camping, we naturally think to ourselves, “Well, they have me and i can take care of them”. The question you should ask yourself is, “What if I cant because something happened to me”? Let’s pray it doesn’t but it is always wise to train them to take care of themselves. We teach them this in all aspects of life, so why not wilderness/disaster survival?

After asking people this question I often got the following  statement, “Oh my goodness, where do I even start?” That’s a good question and the answer is always going to be; water, shelter, fire, food. In that order. What you teach them about these things will depend on their age of course but water and shelter are a great place to start.

Rob from Sigma 3 Survival school has put out a series of videos titled, “Survival Training for Kids”.  In part one he introduces us to his 4 year old daughter Shilo and his dog. (Both are exceptionally adorable by the way.) I was captivated with this video because he demonstrates his love for his daughter through the way he teaches her and sets a wonderful example for people starting with a toddler. He shows us her “mini” survival kit and her back pack and how to treat her clothes to avoid ticks and chiggers.

Vehicles to Bug Out In

Click here to view the original post.

You have probably seen hundreds of articles and videos on ‘The Perfect’ bug out vehicle. Well truthfully, there is not one ‘ideal’ bug out vehicle that works for everyone. There are many factors to consider before deciding what is perfect for you and your family. For some the best BOV might be a motorcycle, bicycle or even a horse or donkey. The possibilities are endless.

One of APN’s favorites, Shane at LoneWolf Survival School, is back with their first episode of season 2. In this video Shane talks a little bit about combat gear and then gets into their own personal bug out vehicles and their differences. Of the two vehicles one is a designated bug out vehicle while the other is a daily used bug out vehicle.

Shane touches on what type of vehicle you should consider based on your bug out location, how many people you intend to have with you,how far is it, what area do you live in and your budget. He also discusses what you should carry with you that would be necessary and would make surviving easier based on certain situations. He teaches the basics in a vehicle bug out bag and tools for the vehicle maintenance that should be kept in your vehicle at all times. All things considered, you decide what is best for your family.

Krik of Black Owl Outdoors shows you how to tie a Siberian Hitch used to hang a ridge-line, which is a great quick release hitch perfect to use to secure a ridge-line for a tarp while you’re camping, backpacking, or just picnicking in the outdoors.

He goes step by step and slowly shows you how easy it is to accomplish. It may take a couple of tries but once you get it, it quickly becomes a favorite knot to be used.

There are many other types of knots out there that can be used. Several are mentioned in his comment section. I urge you to try different different ones until you find one that satisfies you. The Know How of Knot Tying shows great animation videos to teach you multiple knots.

How To Hang A Ridge-line

Click here to view the original post.

Krik of Black Owl Outdoors shows you the basics of hanging a ridge-line. Whether you use it for a clothes line or for a tarp shelter, knowing how to set up a secure ridge-line is an important skill to know. Especially if you need to hang your shelter relatively fast because a storm is coming or dark crept up faster than you thought.

Tying knots to secure ropes and go fishing is one thing a lot of people tend to over look. Not knowing how to tie a good knot can mean the difference in dinner and hypothermia.

To hang this ridge-line you need to know how to do a Siberian Hitch Knot to secure one end of the para-cord to the tree. Krik also has another short video showing you exactly how to tie this sort of knot. Please feel free to view that video here.

Setting Up a Tarp Tent Shelter 4 Easy Ways

Click here to view the original post.

Carrying a tarp for shelter is a very convenient and efficient way to travel when you’re camping, hunting or hiking for the day. It is also wonderful to add to your bug out or emergency bag that you carry with you and countless other uses.  There are many different styles of tarps but the cheaper you go the more often you have to replace it. On the flimsy tarps the grommets can tear easily in the wind or it might get a tear in the actual nylon material. It is better to get a good one to start with even though you pay a little more than the average tarp. There are some things you just shouldn’t skimp on if you are going to survive in the woods.

My personal favorite tarp tent only weighs 1.9 ounces and compresses down to 6x6x3.5 inches. It is very well designed and will last for a substantial amount of time and in all types of weather. At 13x 9 it is 100 percent water proof and comes with 16 nylon hoops and 1 top center loop.

In this video Forest Walker Outdoors shows us four very easy ways you can set up your tarp tent quickly and efficiently for any situation. It is important to know how to protect yourself in all different types of weather. He also shows you how you can set up the tarp tent if you have no rope.

Opening 15 Year Old Oats

Click here to view the original post.

As an avid prepper I have always been a huge fan of and promote storage your basic staples in sealed Mylar bags; stored in a 5 gallon bucket with O2 absorber. I have had oats, rice and wheat stored that way for about 5 years now and I’ll admit, I was starting to get curious if they were still storing well.

As you can imagine, I was very excited when I came across this video showing TexasPrepper2 opening up a bucket of oats he has had stored for FIFTEEN years! I feel it is very important to share things like this with the prepper community and new preppers so that they know the best way to go when it comes to food storage. This day and age we can not afford to learn the hard way and waste money.

I hope you enjoy!!

Cheap Medical and Prepping Supplies

ThePatriotNurse shares with us how she shops for her medical prepping supplies, Wonder Woman and a few other things you may not have considered.  She walks us through Costo and shows us some of their best deals to get your medical supplies stored up fast. I have to say, she definitely makes shopping fun.

Medical supplies are very important to have in case of an emergency or bug out/in circumstance. Medicine can mean the difference when it comes to preventing or treating infection, fever, cough, acid reflux etc. Preventing a cough, allergies or vomiting can also mean not giving away your location should you need to remain quiet.

Medical training is also a very important thing to consider working towards. After all, what good are medical supplies if you don’t know how to use them?

Hope you enjoy ThePatriotNurse and shopping with her bubbly personality.

Sigma 3’s Survival Shelter Lean To

Click here to view the original post.

In this video Sigma 3 demonstrates for us how to create a cold and wet weather survival shelter with a custom bed and fire place. This is more of a permanent camp shelter verses an on the go survival shelter. It would be great for camping with your buddies or just to get away from the world for a while. This video will not show you how to do this with just a knife, even though it is possible. It will just take a lot more work. He does recommend bringing some bigger tools to build this shelter.

The fire pit is different than most I have seen. It shows how to run it through the shelter long ways so you have to cut less wood and can save your energy. He also touches on how to add a door to close the shelter up to make it wind proof if you choose or to contain the heat. After all, this is a cold weather shelter.

Sigma 3 Survival school has many more videos on their You Tube as well as their own website and Facebook page. Their school also has an option to learn how to become a survival instructor.

42 Experts Share Tips on How to Survive if Lost

Survivors Fortress, Conrad Novak has put together a very well organized article that shares 42 different peoples best 3 tips to know if you are ever lost in the woods and need to survive. He has kindly shared that with us and allowed APN to share it with you.

“Just the thought of being alone in the wilderness gives most people a panic attack. And while it is good to be aware of all the dangers of the wilderness, it is more crucial to think with a clear head so that you can survive any situation, such as getting lost.

Wilderness survival is a lesson that you need to think about and learn before you leave your home. You need to make sure that you think about every scenario that you creep up while you are out in the great wide open.

You need to learn how to get by with just the supplies you have in your survival gear until you reach civilization or a rescue team finds you. It is also paramount to learn about how you can find food and shelter, how to make sure that you drink safe water, how to signal your position for rescuers, and how to ask for help using sound and light.

These are all extremely critical as the human body is not built to live in the wilderness for a long period of time. You will need fire and shelter to keep you warm and protect you from the natural elements and wild animals. The terrific news is that there are wilderness survival tips that you can follow, with or without a survival gear, to make sure that you survive getting lost in the wilderness and come back to civilization safe and sound.

In this article 42 experts give you their best survival tips when you get lost in the outdoors so you can learn what the most important steps are to assess the situation, what you will need to do while waiting being rescued or what course of action to take in case that is not a possibility. Enjoy!”

USA Made Fire Steel: Have You Tried it?

Click here to view the original post.

Recently I went to a preparedness convention in Georgia and had a great time. I was very impressed with a lot of the booths that were set up, but I have to tell you about one of my favorites, the Fire Steel Booth with Georgia Pyro.

I have seen a LOT of fire starters in my day and have tried many different kinds. This one takes the cake. What drew me to his booth was the amount of sparks I saw flying from one strike, but also the size of the sparks. They were HUGE!

So I started asking questions about their product and found out some very interesting things. For starters, they are USA hand made right here in Georgia, but also that their fire starters produce an amazing amount of 3000 degree sparks and their magnesium burns at 5000 degrees. WET or DRY and their larger rods give over 20,000 strikes!

Their scrapers are 1/4″ square high speed steel tool Bits. They are very sharp and very easy to strike. So much so that you can actually use it to scrape wood shavings to use as tinder. David Bailey demonstrates in the videos below.

Look at all those sparks!

Starting a Fire with Cotton

Scraping Off Tinder

If you want to see for yourself, he has a list of shows he will be at on his website. There are nothing but outstanding reviews there as well. We purchased the fire block at the show but will be getting the Tiger Maple one soon to add to my husbands bag. I can not stress enough that you will not be disappointed in this product. You guys know me, if it is USA made I’m all about it. Especially if it is done by an individual verses a corporation. I personally prefer supporting the little guys. 🙂

Check David Baily out at GeorgiaFireSteel.com and let us know what you think!!
