Prepare With a Very Informative Site

I recently found a wonderfully informative survival blog called TheSurvivalistBlog.net. The name might put off a few of you, or it might intrigue others, but either way, this uncluttered site has a huge collection of easy to find articles. There is something for everyone. One of the things I like most about The Survivalist Blog is that the site owner, M. D. Creekmore keeps his blog and his articles simple.

MD says that TheSurvivalistBlog.net is “dedicated to helping people, on a budget, prepare for an uncertain future.” Like my family, MD lives off the grid, and he has years of experience. Whether you just want get motivated to better prepare for something relatively small such as the next ice storm, or you’re on the other end of the spectrum and consider yourself a serious prepper getting ready for a major disaster, you will learn a great deal from the many articles at Survivalist Blog.

Here is a partial list of the article categories:
  • Food
  • Gardening
  • Firearms
  • Homestead
  • Medical
  • Trapping
  • News
  • Life & Mindset
My family and I live in the Alaskan bush, not because we thought the sky was falling and wanted to head for the hills. We’re here because it provides a peaceful lifestyle that both of us have dreamed about since we were kids growing up in different parts of the country. We’ve been drawn to Alaska and to the bush most of our lives. Since we’re so remote, many people think we’re sort of “experts” on . . . . well, I’m not exactly sure what. We’re just a family raising our children and living a life we love, which just happens to be in the wilderness of Alaska. We’re learning as we go. I’ve been very impressed with The SurvivalistBlog.net and have learned much. I hope you’ll visit his website soon.

Thanks for that link. I've been enjoying your blog for awhile- you're living the life I long for as well. I'd love to be more self-sufficient and am doing more towards achieving that goal. Don't know that I could actually do what you're doing, but thanks for letting me into your world to dream about it! :)

Thanks for the good info, Jenny; I look forward to exploring this site more. Whether or not we live in the bush, this kind of information is good to know if times get tougher.

Blessings,
Wendy

I love the Survival Blog - great information there.

I was thinking of you today while I was shoveling more snow.. we had about 2 feet last week and another 6 to 10 inches last night.. there is fast becoming no place to put it all..

Thank you all for visiting and for the comments. Judy, I always wondered how folks in towns and cities deal with lots of snow. Out here, we just snowshoe or snow machine trails. The only shoveling is the roof and porch. Sometimes it's tougher in towns than in the bush, especially if your power or water goes out. We're set up to live without it, but it's a serious problem for people in town.
Best wishes,
Jenny

Have you seen the tutorials at Mountain Rose? http://www.youtube.com/user/mountainroseherbs#p/u/3/e095va7iAX0
They show how to make herbal oils etc...

Sorry Judy. I didn't see your second comment until now. I will sure take a look at it. It's funny that you mentioned it right now because I just submitted an article to Survivalist Blog on making spruce pitch oil and salve. I have a few others in the works to post here, though. Good timing. :)

my husband loved your blog so he sent me the link :-) Awesome stuff!! Looking forward to reading more!! Hello from NW Montana :-)

Hi, and thank you for commenting. Before I came to Alaska, I was a nurse and was trying to get a traveling nurse job in Alaska, but Montana was my second choice. Nobody would send a city cirl from Atlanta to either state, so I headed North to Alaska on my own.
You have a nice blog. Generator, and thus computer time is limited right now, so couldn't stay long, bue very nice.
Take care,
Jenny

Hi - I am hooked on your blog. You may not realize how fascinating your life is. I would love to read a blog post about simple things like, what is your cabin like, whatis your day like, how did you with potty training and diapers in the winter in Alaska, etc...
It is really amazing the confidence you give your kids by teaching them skills

Saw this new book at NYT:

Caribou Island

Thanks for sending the link to that book. Looks good. I only read the first page of the review because our generator is running, but I copied it and will read the rest later. From what I read so far, looks like it paints a farily accurate picture of Alaska, as well as the experience of many couples who move to the bush. I moved to Alaska as a single woman with a similar dream, met my husband, married, and then started out together. But I think it's usually the man, though, who has the dream, and the woman follows.
Thanks again. I think I'd enjoy reading that book.
