Survival planning is nothing more than realizing something could happen that would put you in a survival situation and, with that in mind, taking steps to increase your chances of survival. Thus, survival planning means preparation. Preparation means having survival items and knowing how to use them People who live in snow regions prepare their vehicles for poor road conditions. They put snow tires on their vehicles, add extra weight in the back for traction, and they carry a shovel, salt, and a blanket. Another example of preparation is finding the emergency exits on an aircraft when you board it for a flight. Preparation could also mean knowing your intended route of travel and familiarizing yourself with the area. Finally, emergency planning is essential.
IMPORTANCE OF PLANNING
Detailed prior planning is essential in potential survival situations. Including survival considerations in mission planning will enhance your chances of survival if an emergency occurs. For example, if your job re-quires that you work in a small, enclosed area that limits what you can carry on your person, plan where you can put your rucksack or your load-bearing equipment. Put it where it will not prevent you from getting out of the area quickly, yet where it is readily accessible.
One important aspect of prior planning is preventive medicine. Ensuring that you have no dental problems and that your immunizations are current will help you avoid potential dental or health problems. A dental problem in a survival situation will reduce your ability to cope with other problems that you face. Failure to keep your shots current may mean your body is not immune to diseases that are prevalent in the area.
Preparing and carrying a survival kit is as important as the considerations mentioned above. All Army aircraft normally have survival kits on board for the type area(s) over which they will fly. There are kits for over-water survival, for hot climate survival, and an aviator survival vest. If you are not an aviator, you will probably not have access to the survival vests or survival kits. However, if you know what these kits contain, it will help you to plan and to prepare your own survival kit.

Resist being harnessed by the New World Order as an economic slave, chattel or agent. Restore American, private sector free enterprise to its prominence and productivity before government intentionally regulates and disables it to death. The U.S. government replaced the private-sector with nonproductive, socialist, transnational schemes for destroying the American economy and controlling it from abroad. You must recognize that the United States has been a socialist-democratic state since the first federal bankruptcy socialized the corporate state through the New Deal (1933). Recognize that declared national emergencies and executive orders are symptomatic of the financial collapse of the U.S. Corporation, the federal government and its political subdivisions. Recognize that we must eliminate all deficit spending (thus the size of government) and eliminate the welfare state to restore private initiative and incentives for productivity and excellence. There are no more free lunches. Fund self-reliance and economically sustainable enterprises, owned and controlled by sovereign, American Citizens. Prepare for the collapse with community-based infrastructures, local scrips, and barter network organizations. Prepare for the inevitable re-monetization of debt through the issuance of either a domestic-use currency, or through the free-fall of the U.S. Dollar. Shift all investments out of U.S. Dollar enumerated mutual funds, stocks, and bonds. Invest in more secure stores of value (gold and silver), and commodity- based items. Stop paying all income taxes and funding government oppression. Repudiate the federal debt. Stop voting and obligating yourself to pay an un-payable debt with your property and rights. Boycott all unnecessary consumer items. Prepare for survival into the 21st Century. Preparations for your own personal and family survival include adequate food and water, radio communications, land to grow food and retreat from the cities, healthcare provisions, water/air purification systems, and fuel for generators and vehicles (solar-hydrogen, solar-electric). We must also be able to protect ourselves against biological/germ warfare, AIDS, cancer and other degenerative diseases, and be prepared to build our immune systems with ozone/herbs and other natural means. We must be prepared for any government encroachment or attack by joining with others in citizen’s militia, community networks, and mutual survival infrastructures. Too often the emphasis has been exclusively on personal and/or family survival. This is an important foundation. But we mustn’t forget that our neighbors, communities and friends are the second, necessary tier of our strategic plan for survival. It cannot be everyone for themselves, without regard for each other. We must not only provide and take responsibility for ourselves, but must consider being prepared to be generous to those unprepared. For if we do not, it will be our unraveling. No man or woman can create and maintain a fortress against the entire world. If our neighbors are not considered, they may very well turn against us. Utilize the resources, skills and support that we can be for each other and set-up these infrastructures before the social disintegration gets any worse. Take the time to talk and interact with your neighbors. Build alliances and network everyone you can.

Notes about the following article: Most articles instructing you on non-toxic garden remedies often suggest alternate toxic substances . This article is a good example and I thought it helpful to amend this one to demonstrate how these toxins creep into non-toxic advice. Remember anything you spray on your vegetable garden will end up on your plate. You can wash off soap but you cannot wash away the toxins they carry with them. Likewise on your lawn…your pets, wandering cats and dogs, and other critters graze on grasses and you track into your home any toxins placed on your lawn.
See emphasis bracketed in bold and strikethroughs. Dr. Bonners and Bio-Kleen are two good non toxic soaps. There are others. Check the ingredients like you would your food, your garden is food. Don’t use ” any brand” lawn fertilizer, most contain toxins. Get a non-toxic one from a “green” supplier or make your own. Corn syrup contains toxins. Cedar chips are often treated with chemicals, make sure yours aren’t. Finally, ammonia!!??
Here following is the Article:
t’s that time of year to begin gardening and we always seem to encounter a few hiccups after the winter.
In my landscaping business, we specialize in pet friendly yards and encourage others to use natural remedies to eliminate pests and other gardening problems that you may encounter. Read the rest of this entry »

Animals rarely are as threatening to the survivor as the rest of the environment. Common sense tells the survivor to avoid encounters with lions, bears, and other large or dangerous animals. You should also avoid large grazing animals with horns, hooves, and great weight. Your actions may prevent unexpected meetings. Move carefully through their environment. Do not attract large predators by leaving food lying around your camp. Carefully survey the scene before entering water or forests.
Smaller animals actually present more of a threat to the survivor than large animals. To compensate for their size, nature has given many small animals weapons such as fangs and stingers to defend themselves. Each year, a few people are bitten by sharks, mauled by alligators, and attacked by bears. Most of these incidents were in some way the victim’s fault. However, each year more victims die from bites by relatively small venomous snakes than by large dangerous animals. Even more victims die from allergic reactions to bee stings. For this reason, we will pay more attention to smaller and potentially more dangerous creatures. These are the animals you are more likely to meet as you unwittingly move into their habitat, or they slip into your environment unnoticed.
Keeping a level head and an awareness of your surroundings will keep you alive if you use a few simple safety procedures. Do not let curiosity and carelessness kill or injure you.
(I included several pictures of the animals identified within this article, but for the rest you will have to use the external link provided to see what they look like)
INSECTS AND ARACHNIDS
You recognize and identify insects, except centipedes and millipedes, by their six legs while arachnids have eight. All these small creatures become pests when they bite, sting, or irritate you.
Although their venom can be quite painful, bee, wasp, and hornet stings rarely kill a survivor unless he is allergic to that particular toxin. Even the most dangerous spiders rarely kill, and the effects of tick-borne diseases are very slow-acting. However, in all cases, avoidance is the best defense. In environments known to have spiders and scorpions, check your footgear and clothing every morning. Also check your bedding and shelter for them. Use care when turning over rocks and logs.
