3 Unique Tips for Finding Your Way Out of the Wilderness Ready Nutrition

Wilderness survival is a vast subject that few people ever truly master. Even certain subsets of this subject can be daunting. Fortunately, there are plenty of online resources and books that can help. Its a super popular subject that has been discussed at length by countless websites and authors, including yours truly.

But throughout my time researching this subject over the years, Ive stumbled on a few survival tips that dont seem to be mentioned very often. Perhaps their usefulness is a little too narrow, or there are better options that are little more versatile and applicable in more situations. However, Ive always felt that there is no survival tip that is too niche, so to speak. I like to learn everything, even if some of that knowledge is only useful in rare circumstances. In that spirit, Ive come up with a three survival tips on the subject of navigating your way out of the wilderness, that I dont think get mentioned often enough.

Pay Attention To The Animals

We all know that certain animals can sense magnetic fields, and use that ability to navigate. What most people dont realize is that observing some of these animals can help you figure out which way is north or south. If youre ever lost in the forests of North America or Europe, pay attention to any deer you might run across. They almost always face magnetic north or south when theyre grazing.

Follow The Water

With advances in modern infrastructure, its a lot easier for a community to spring up where there is no water. However, most towns and cities that are around today were built a long time ago, when they absolutely needed to be near water sources. For that reason, one of the best ways to find civilization is to simply follow any rivers or streams you run across. Obviously, doing this doesnt guarantee that youll find civilization, but if you dont know which direction the nearest community is, then following a river gives you the best odds of getting out of the wilderness. Plus, youll be able to stay hydrated throughout the journey.

Look For Light Pollution

One of the most noticeable side effects of modern civilization is the abundance of light it produces. Even at night, most communities have plenty of streetlights running until dawn. Depending on the size of these communities and how far away they are, you should be able to see the light they produce even if you cant see the town itself. When it gets dark, try to find a high vantage point an...

Top Investment CEO Shocked By Jamie Dimon Bitcoin Comments: Major Banks Are All Spending Billions Of Dollars To Get In On Blockchain SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

btc-global

Last week saw some tumultuous moves in Bitcoin and the crypto currency market in general following news that China would be cracking down on ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) purportedly in an effort to prevent fraud and capital flight. Just days prior to these announcements, JP Morgan chief Jamie Dimon publicly said that Bitcoin is a fraud and that anyone in his firm caught trading the digital currency would be terminated. By the end of the week, it was revealed that not only were people not being fired at JM Morgan, but they were actively buying the crypto on European exchanges.

This begs the question: Was Jamie Dimon simply talking his book by attacking Bitcoin and other crypto currencies so that his firm could load up after the price dropped some 35% from its all-time highs? Either that, or Dimon clearly understands the threat it poses to the banking sector as it exists today, including the profits from their multi-billion dollar customer fee structures .

According to Frank Holmes, who is the head of top advisory firm U.S. Global Investors and recently appointed as the Chairman of the first publicly traded blockchain mining company Hive Blockchain Technologies, blockchain stands to completely uproot the entire banking sector. Holmes highlights that, while Dimon is talking about Bitcoin being a fraud, large bank consortiums in South Korea, Japan and even here in the United States are exploring how the technology can improve their businesses and keep them competitive as this emerging technology takes hold globally:

Jamie Dimons comments surprised me Bitcoin has woken up the significance of blockchain technology and Ethereum comes along with smart contracts on the blockchain and this is so significant because this is basically going to uberize banking its going to be such a big benefit that the major banks are all spending billions of dollars to get into blockchain

So for him to go and say that was really shocking to me.

Federal Reserve Will Continue Cutting Economic Life Support

by Brandon Smith

I remember back in mid-2013 when the Federal Reserve fielded the notion of a taper of quantitative easing measures. More specifically, I remember the response of mainstream economic analysts as well as the alternative economic community. I argued fervently in multiple articles that the Fed would indeed follow through with the taper, and that it made perfect sense for them to do so given that the mission of the central bank is not to protect the U.S. financial system, but to sabotage it carefully and deliberately. The general consensus was that a taper of QE was impossible and that the Fed would never dare. Not long after, the Fed launched its taper program.

Two years later, in 2015, I argued once again that the Fed would begin raising interest rates even though multiple mainstream and alternative sources believed that this was also impossible. Without low interest rates, stock buybacks would slowly but surely die out, and the last pillar holding together equities and the general economy (besides blind faith) would be removed. The idea that the Fed would knowingly take such an action seemed to be against their best self interest; and yet, not long after, they initiated the beginning of the end for artificially low interest rates.

The process that the Federal Reserve has undertaken has been a long and arduous one cloaked in disinformation. It is a process of dismantlement. Through unprecedented stimulus measures, the central bank has conjured perhaps the largest stock and bond bubbles in history, not to mention a bubble to end all bubbles in the U.S. dollar.

Stocks in particular are irrelevant in the grand scheme of our economy, but this does not stop the populace from using them as a reference point for the health of our system. This creates an environment rife with delusion, just as the open flood of cheap credit created considerable delusion before the crash of 2008.

This Border Wall Reduced Illegal Immigration By Over 99% SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

hungaryfence

There is a border wall in existence that reduced illegal immigration by over 99%. Viktor Orban, the Prime Minister of Hungary put up a double fence along the border of his country with Serbia, and the results were staggering.

This tweet sums up the statistical data behind the wall and reduction in illegal immigration. However, somehow the debate over Donald Trumps wall is still ongoing.

Recent Facebook ads assure social media users who support Trumps wall that he will succeed at building it as promised during his campaign.

Theres been a lot of noise and a lot of rumors, reads the ad on Trumps personal Facebook page. WE WILL BUILD A WALL (NOT A FENCE) ALONG THE SOUTHERN BORDER OF THE UNITED STATES, it adds, calling the issue non-negotiable.

As pointed out by Reasondiscussions should be had about the cost and burden on the taxpayers because of the proposed wall. But setting the cost issue aside, as evidenced by the Hungary numbers, barriers actually do the heavy work of keeping people out....

New Survey Shows Just How Hard It Is To Make Ends Meet: Half Of People Need Credit Cards Just To Make It To Their Next Payday SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

creditcard

A new survey was done in the United Kingdom and it shows just how hard it is for young people to survive paycheck to paycheck. Almost half of those surveyed admitted to needing credit to make ends meet until they get paid again.

More than half of young women have to borrow to make their funds last to the end of the month, highlighting the impact of stagnating wages, insecure work, and rising prices like taxation on millennials. A survey of 4,000 people aged 18-30 shows that 51% of young women and 45% of young men regularly use credit to stretch their finances until payday. The report also found that a quarter of these young people in the UK are constantly in debt.

When asked how they borrow to make ends meet, one in five claimed they used overdraft credit or borrowed from family members. The next most common form of borrowing was the use of credit cards. The Young Womens Trust, which commissioned the representative sample of young people, said many of those questioned in the survey also worked extra hours or skipped meals to make their cash stretch to the end of the month.

The survey was conducted after a growing number of people began asking for help from debt charities with personal debts and monthly bills. The debt charity StepChange said it was concerned about a steep increase in the number of under-40s and renters who were struggling to make ends meet. This adds to the trend for low-income families to rely on credit to buy essential items. This debt epidemic is not likely to go away either, with the added burden of regulations and taxation on personal income, it isnt a surprise that people have begun to struggle financially.

Even if a credit company forgives a debt, in the United States, the IRS will demand that the company give a 1099-C form, which is then reported as i...

Thunderstorm Blasts Radiation Everywhere After Turning Into Nuclear Reactor SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

terrestrialgammarays

When a thunderstorm rolled over the Japanese beach town of Uchinada early one December morning in 2015, residents had no idea what they were in for. Sometime after 5 am, a flash of lightning struck a wind turbine and incredible weather phenomena occurred.

While scientists expected the storm, they did not expect the perplexing outcome. The thunderstorm turned into a particle accelerator and blasted gamma radiation at the ground.

Scientists have observed so-called terrestrial gamma-ray flashes shooting upwards from the Earth into satellites since the early 1990s. But the 2015 flash was different because not only did it shoot down into the ground instead of up into space, but it confirmed a long-standing suspicion about these flashes by sending a barrage of neutrons into particle detectors a thousand feet away. According to the paper published in Geophysical Research Letters, this is groundbreaking. But that isnt all.

The flash was massive. The total fluence of gamma-rays at the ground was calculated to be approximately ~100,000 photons/cm2, much larger than the total combined fluence of all TGFs observed by satellites since 1994, according to the paper. This is one of the brightest gamma-ray flashes ever seen on the ground, Dwyer said.

A team in the United States and Japan led by then-graduate student Gregory Bowers observed these gamma-ray flashes with special particle detectors. Satellites have observed gamma-ray flashes before, but this latest flash was unusual in several aspects, and it came with a prize: They observed a burst of subatomic particles (in this case, neutrons) in their detector. Their observations could shed light on what exactly causes gamma ray flashes and what causes lightning in general, and help researchers get a better handle on how the electric fields inside thunderheads behave.

Spanish Police Storm Government Buildings Trying To Stop Independence Referendum SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

catalonia

Spanish national police have stormed ministries and buildings belonging to Catalonias regional government to put a stop to the regions independence referendum.  In the early morning hours, armed officers arrived at various Catalan ministries, including the economics department, foreign affairs department, and social affairs department, and made arrests in an effort to stop Catalan independence.

The Guardia Civil, which acts with the authority of Madrids interior ministry, is searching for evidence regarding the planned October 1st referendum on Catalan independence, which Spains Constitutional Court has declared illegal. The Catalan president has accused the Spanish government of effectively suspending the regions autonomy and declaring a de facto state of emergency.

Police officers raided Catalan government offices on Wednesday and arrested 12 senior officials in a bid to stop an independence referendum being held in less than two weeks time. Pro-independence crowds have since formed outside the regional ministries in support of the provincial government and in protest against the raids and searches and attempts to stop the independence referendum.

According to The Guardian, Carles Puigdemont, the president of Catalonia described the raids as a co-ordinated police assault that showed that Madrid has de facto suspended self-government and a...

We Are At War Morgan Freeman Is The Face Of The New Committee To Investigate Russia SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

This report was originally published by Tyler Durden at Zero Hedge

Morgan Freeman

Imagine this movie-script: a former KGB spy, angry at the collapse of his motherland, plots a course for revenge narrates the ominous sounding voice of Morgan Freeman.

The hysteria continues, and this time Hollywood has been enlisted. No this is not The Onion, but yet another serious committee for serious people. Meet the Committee to Investigate Russia which launched on Tuesday and immediately garnered broad coverage in pop-culture and entertainment news sites for its release of a short Morgan Freeman narrated video which aims to tell us the truth about Russian meddling in the US election. We have been attacked, Freeman says in his familiarly reassuring voice while gazing into the camera. We are at war.

Not only did the video burn up social media on Tuesday, but the founders of the lobbying group behind the production, barely one day old, were given substantial air time on cable news from CNN to MSNBC. Of course, it helps that actor, director, and lifelong Democrat Rob Reiner is behind it hes teamed up with neocons David Frum, Max Boot, and national security insiders like James Clapper.

Similar to other recently launched Russiagate campaigns and organizations weve profiledthe initiative is enjoying fawning mainstream media coverage from the very start. And apparently the historical irony is completely lost on Hollywood, a town which itself fell victim to the original McCarthyite witch hunt and its celebrity blacklist.

Meanwhile, it appears the Committee to Investigate Russia is designed to appeal especially to the popular masses and consumers of pop media and celebrity culture magazines. For example, the following gushing roll out coverage from entertainment news site PopSugar reads like the famed Max...

Footage Of Mexican Earthquake Shows Buildings Collapse And Explode SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

explosion

*Photo Credit: Express.UK

Footage of an explosion shortly after the 7.1 magnitude earthquake hit Mexico City yesterday is terrifying. Flames can be seen engulfing the building as a ring of fire crawls into the sky.

Buildings in Mexico City shook as the quake rumbled below them, and office workers fled into the street for fear of their lives. There have been reports of widespread fires in buildings across the capital and several people are said to be trapped. Most recent reports put the death toll at 216, and that number could still climb.

Perhaps the most sensational and horrifying video of the destruction is that of an exploding building. The video begins as a fire is already burning. Then youll hear a loud pop as the fireball extends toward the sky.

Residents in the city also caught a building collapse on video shortly after the earthquake.

The epicenter of the 7.1-magnitude earthquake was 2.8 miles (4.5 kilometers) east-northeast of San Juan Raboso and 34.1 miles (55 km) south-southwest of the city of Puebla, in Puebla state, according to the US Geological Survey. President Enrique Pea Nieto said 22 bodies were found in the debris of an elementary school in Mexico City that collapsed due to the earthquake. At least 30 children were still missing Tuesday night, he said.

5 Quick Emergency Foods for All Situations Ready Nutrition

ReadyNutrition Readers, we have been covering a host of different disasters and scenarios for preps.  One thing we have not mentioned is the need for food in these situations that meet the challenge of the disaster.  What are we talking about here?  For starters, we need food that we can bust open and eat immediatelythat will give us some kind of energy with nutritional valuebut that we can eat without needing to go off somewhere and sit down.  Even more: food that we can eat without taking a break in stride.

This poses the following conditions for the food: it must be pre-cooked or prepared previously so that no heating or preparation is required.  The biggest problem with this is in the winter months, but well address that issue later.  Lets look at some foods that it would not be an inconvenience to tote around, either on your person or in a small bag or even a briefcase.  Remember, were looking for high protein, medium carbs, and low fat.  Here we go:

5 Quick Emergency Foods

  1. Beef Jerky/Smoked, Cured Jerky and meats: In general, you receive a lot with jerky and beef stickson average a 1-ounce portion or piece/stick is about 10-12 g of protein. Considering that it keeps for a long time and doesnt need to be cooked, with just about a quarter of a pound, you are taking in 40-48 g of protein.  This is very good, especially in a high-stress environment where youre burning up a lot of energy.  Please go back and refer to some of my articles on protein intake and how cannibalism (during the catabolic phase) to break down muscle tissue and use it for energy works.
  2. Nuts: Peanuts, almonds, sunflower seeds, and so forth, usually run about 7-8 grams of protein, about the same in carbohydrates, and double the amount in fat. They have a high-fat content; however, nuts are packed with resveratrol, a chemical that is a vasodilator that improves circulation.  In addition, during a disaster, the extra fat content will not be harmful, as it provides satiety (feeling of fullness), as well as giving you some valuable electrolytes, such as sodium and potassium.  These, too are readily available and easily munched down on the go.  Dry-roasted, shelled pistachios are a good one with high protein and high Omegas, as well as the minerals and electrolytes.
  3. Dried Fruits: will give you some simple sugars and carbohydrates for the body. Long-term benefits will be to provide some fiber.  This is very important in a disaster, as peristaltic activity (the activity of the bowels in diges...

Help Dave get his guns back Australian Survival and Preppers..


David Dunstan is a farmer from the NSW town of Bungowannah.

At 3:30am on Thursday 14th September, a man armed with a knife and piece of wood knocked on his back door.

David grabbed his unloaded 22 rifle to confront him - aware that the man had earlier confronted one if his neighbours who scared him off with a hockey stick. Dave managed to convince the man to sit in his car and drive him to the police station, while his wife called the police.

The police met David halfway down his driveway and placed his unwelcome guest under arrest.

The problem is, the police paid David another visit later in the morning to take his guns off him!

We've been working with David to try and see what can be done.  So we're starting this campaign to help him hire a lawyer who specialises in NSW firearms legislation to get his guns back.

We'd like to go further - we reckon he should be compensated for the loss of his firearms, not for his benefit, but to make a stand against this type of treatment by NSW Police.

So please help our campaign to help David get the legal representation he needs - and score a win on behalf of all shooters.

Help Dave get his guns back A Woodsrunner's Diary


David Dunstan is a farmer from the NSW town of Bungowannah. 

At 3:30am on Thursday 14th September, a man armed with a knife and piece of wood knocked on his back door.

David grabbed his unloaded 22 rifle to confront him - aware that the man had earlier confronted one if his neighbours who scared him off with a hockey stick. Dave managed to convince the man to sit in his car and drive him to the police station, while his wife called the police.

The police met David halfway down his driveway and placed his unwelcome guest under arrest.

The problem is, the police paid David another visit later in the morning to take his guns off him!

We've been working with David to try and see what can be done.  So we're starting this campaign to help him hire a lawyer who specialises in NSW firearms legislation to get his guns back.

We'd like to go further - we reckon he should be compensated for the loss of his firearms, not for his benefit, but to make a stand against this type of treatment by NSW Police.

So please help our campaign to help David get the legal representation he needs - and score a win on behalf of all shooters.
Help spread the word!

akstatue

A brand new statue of Mikhail Kalashnikov holding his signature AK-47 assault rifle was unveiled in Moscow on Tuesday. The statue commemorates one of Russias most renowned inventions.

Kalashnikov is a staple name in Russia. The history of the rifle though began almost 100 years ago when its designer was born. The inventor of the worlds most famous rifle was born into a Siberian peasant family in 1919. He was mechanically minded and first aspired to design farm equipment. But World War II called him into the army and he was wounded in the 1941 battle of Bryansk. While he was in the hospital recovering, he heard other soldiers saying their weapons were insufficient to those of the Nazis. So, Kalashnikov got to work designing his own rifle.

US Navy Will Use Xbox Controllers To Steer Submarine Periscopes SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

xbox

The Navy is going to use Xbox game console controllers to steer the periscopes in submarines. The new controllers would replace the chunky and expensive joysticks currently in use.

That joystick is by no means cheap, and it is only designed to fit on a Virginia-class submarine, said Senior Chief Mark Eichenlaub, the John Warners assistant navigator. I can go to any video game store and procure an Xbox controller anywhere in the world, so it makes a very easy replacement.

The joystick and the control panel that Lockheed Martin had developed to steer a periscope cost around $38,000. Not only that, but the joystick was heavy and clunky. It would take hours to train a sailor to use it. When the military contractor tested the Xbox controller as a replacement, sailors were able to...

Hillary Clinton May Question The Legitimacy Of The 2016 Election SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

hillary-pointing3

Hillary Clinton has officially opened the door to questioning the legitimacy of the 2016 presidential election the very election she lost. But she still claims its Russias fault Donald Trump won.

In an interview that aired Monday on NPR, Hillary Clinton she would not rule out questioning the legitimacy of the 2016 election if Russian interference is deeper than currently known. Unable to give up on the Russian hysteria she and other Democrats created out of thin air, the former presidential candidate is going to whine about it instead.

According to CNN, this just means Clinton firmly believes that Russia helped president Donald Trump win and she still isnt taking any responsibility for the fact that Americans just didnt want her to be the president. Clinton has said previously that she conceded to Trump quickly and attended his inauguration because the nations peaceful transfer of power is critical. But her comments to NPR signal that as the imaginary and completely made up depths of Russias alleged interference are revealed she could envision a time when she questions Trumps legitimacy as president.

Not that that is surprising at all. Most Democrats at some point have questioned Trumps legitimacy. This was happening since the very beginning when the media announced hed become the 45th president of the United States.

NPRs Terry Gross asked Clinton directly during the interview whether she would completely rule out questioning the legitimacy of this election if we learn that the Russian interference in the election is even deeper than we know now?

No. I would not, Clinton said. Gross asked: Youre not going to rule it out?

No, Clinton said. I wouldnt rule it out. ...

Russian Collusion: Hillary Clinton Invited Vladimir Putin To Pay For Play Event SHTF Plan When It Hits The Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

crooked-hillary-clinton

In newly released emails which the mainstream media is willfully ignoring, Hillary Clinton invited Russian president Vladimir Putin to a Clinton Foundation event. The Russian collusion between Hillary Clinton is becoming very apparent.

Hillary Clinton likes to talk a tough game about Russian President Vladimir Putin. And she likes to put him on the list of those at fault for her loss in the election last November to Donald Trump. But that didnt stop her from inviting him and other top Russian officials to a Clinton Foundation gala right after she became Secretary of State.

Clinton Foundation director of foreign policy Amitabh Desai sent dozens of invitations to world leaders including then-Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, and Former President of the Soviet Union Mikhail Gorbachev, emails recently obtained by Judicial Watch revealed.

While Democrats blast any Republican who has the nerve to even look Russias direction, Hillary and her minions in the Clinton Foundation were begging the Russians to come to an event put on by the pay for play organization.  Hillary offered political favors in exchange for money filtered through the Clinton Foundation.

On March 13, 2009, Desai emailed the list of invitations to Assistant Secretary of State Andrew Shapiro, who then forwarded the email to top Clinton aide, Jake Sullivan. This happened at approximately the same time that the newly appointed Clinton tried to reset U.S. relations with Russia. Yet, Donald Trump has been blasted for trying to do the same thing. The propaganda in the media is becoming clear as they continue to brush this story under the rug too.
