Safeguard yourself and your home . Home invasion has become an alarming movement in present crime. This style of molest can be succeeded by a single person, but the criminals usually come in teams for such an event. They make polite knock at the door, at times using a helpless look or camouflaged trick. They try to give a reason for the person in the house to unbolt the door, and then hasten the inhabitant to compel entry into the house. The intruders use the front door of the house to get entry.

That makes 20 gallons for under $10! You can use essential oil […]

Comments Off on How to Recondition a Car Battery

How to Recondition a Car Battery Have you ever considered the possibility of reconditioning the batteries you have instead of throwing them away?  You actually can recondition car batteries back to almost new condition and save yourself a lot of money compared to buying new ones.

Carefully dump the acid in the battery into a safe container, adding baking soda to neutralize the acid […]

Preppers  9 volt Battery Hacking The most common form of nine-volt battery is commonly called the transistor battery, introduced for the early transistor radios. This is a rectangular prism shape with rounded edges and a polarized snap connector at the top. This type is commonly used in pocket radios, smoke detectors, and carbon monoxide detectors to name a few. Most nine-volt alkaline batteries are constructed of six individual 1.5V cells enclosed in a wrapper.  These cells are slightly smaller than AAAA cells but can be used in their place for some devices, even though they are 3.5 mm shorter. In an emergency survival situation you could hack a 9 volt battery to power 2 way communication devices and possibly small […]

Samhain it means “Summer’s End”.  It was in a time before ghost and goblins or even saints day.  It was simply a celebration of the seasons  coming and passing.  Samhain or summer’s end was a time when you brought in the last of your harvest.  Took inventory of your livestock deciding what would make it through the winter and what would sustain you through.  It must have been a very solemn time. I understand and enjoy the changes of the seasons.  It gives me time to reflect on myself.  I find myself grateful that we do not live in times where what we eat is dependent on what we grow or kill.  It doesn’t matter how much I watered at […]

I have researched different long term survival groups, visiting, observing, collecting information, listening to their bragging about their equipment, gadgets, firearms, food an so forth, I find that 90% of the preppers are trying to hold on to modern technology, for a short term blackout that will suffice,,, however from the doom an gloom predictions running rampant most every where, one would surmise that what may come will be a change of drastic proportion,,,  The point I am trying to make is that the so called modern gadgets will slowly wear out.. in the very long term,, with no way of repairing or replacing,, those dependent items will be no better that a rock,,, your generator will use all fuel […]
