A Personal SHTF YouTube Video

I found this video interestings as it is from a preparedness “expert” who is starting to see preparedness as not just the huge things, but the huge things that go on in individual lives and families. And it introduces the topic that we are going to be on for the next three days.

Amazing video…..a must watch!


Alright folks, sometimes you just come across something that you want to share. This is one of those times. Frequent contributor over at ModernSurvivalOnline “D.” sent me a link to the following video – just incredible!

Not related to survival, preparedness, or homesteading – just really cool.





YouTube Video: Getting started in solar power……

Here is a video on a simple solar system to get started with.

ROKAF Black Eagles 2012

Submitted by MsKYprepper, Editor-At-Large

The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds and the Navy Blue Angels are not flying this year. For those who have never been to a U.S. military airshow display, you’ll enjoy this. For those who have witnessed the excitement, this might look familiar – and comforting

ROKAF Black Eagles 2012

This video is a little over nine minutes. Your tax dollars at work in South Korea!

YouTube Video: PVC Pipe Bow – 40 lb draw weight



By Suni, Editor-At-Large


Great YouTube on building the 40-lb draw weight PVC bow; get your materials, and build them “when”; learn how to use them. They may come in handy someday, and they look like fun!



You can do a YouTube search for videos on making arrows, as well.


Amazing……..Miniatur Wunderland

A Special Toy Train Set

And you thought you had a great toy train set when you were a kid!!

Amazing technology-Leave it to the Germans.

This is a German video, but the narration is in English.  Enjoy!

Special thanks to John from Iowa, Editor at Large for sending this.

Thanks John!!


YouTube Video: Dr. Benjamin Carson Speech at National Prayer Breakfast


From MsKYprepper, Editor at Large…..

Dr. Carson stood only feet away from President Obama at the National Prayer Breakfast.

He laid out a conservative agenda that everyone should hear.  It’s a 30 minute video but well worth it.

[From Rourke: This guy makes so much sense and uses simple logic. Too bad the rest of government does not do the same.]

A DIY Off-Grid Home and a Zero Net Energy Home

By Bev Sandlin, Executive Editor


How to have a home with no house payments and no monthly utility bills! We are starting out strong here, be sure to check out his website below.

7 min 35 seconds:



“This video is an introduction to simple solar homesteading that provides information on how to find cheap land, build an inexpensive home, and use solar power to eliminate monthly utility bills.

What would you do if you had no house payment and no monthly utility bills?

Well watch the video and I will show you how it is done easily and with very little money.” LaMar Alexander

His website has a wealth of information!


This Zero Net Energy Home is at the other end of the spectrum. This is a Smart home that features solar power, spray foam insulation, air exchanger and geo thermal HVAC. About as high tech as you can get!

10 minute video:





I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes.

Gardening Rule : When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.
The easiest way to find something lost around the house is to buy a replacement.

Whistleblower YouTube: Your Emails are Being Read

Ten years ago, this would have been called a conspiracy theory. Now it’s an admitted fact: the Orwellian Big Brother nightmare is already here…

The flag flies because each soldiers last breath blows by it”

New Editor-at-Large Wyzyrd recommended this video regarding solar power. I actually have one of the kits and they are very easy to put together. Great method for getting into solar.


Thanks Wyzyrd!

YouTube Video: Christmas Flash Mob by Journey of Faith at South Bay Galleria

Editor-at-Large “thesouthwesttactical” sent me this video. I found it wonderful. Related to preparedness? Well, not really – but figured you might be interested so I am passing it on.

Take care all - 




VIDEO: Build an Emergency Heater……..


Need heat? No electricity? Here is an idea to make a portable emergency heater that can be made from common household items.


One of my favorite YouTube Channels is USNERDOC. He does an excellent job making informative and high quality video’s. This particular one deals with making an emergency heater out of a paint can, toilet paper and rubbing alcohol. Cheap and effective.


I made one of these last year and can attest it does work. The video on the bottom is his field test.




Video Week at…..Bug Out Vehicle – Re-Inventing the Car Trunk

This guy is very organized…………


YouTube Video: Water – Bug Out or Bunker In



Water – gotta have it and a very basic supply within your preparedness system.


YouTube Video: Required Reading for Survival


One of my favorite YouTube channels is Sootch00. Here I present another great video from Don (aka Sootch).



Sootch shows a great selection of books and I own most of these myself.

Here is the rundown:

Lights Out

Surviving the Economic Collapse

The Doom and Bloom Survival Medical Handbook

The Prepper’s Handbook

Patriots - Surviving the Coming Collapse

Lights Out is an excellent read. Great fictional story based on an EMP attack and struggles one community goes through.

Take care all -
