They bite, they eat your plants, they invade your homes and they emit a horrible smell when crushed or smashed—and they’re showing up all across the United States.
I’ve been traveling a lot lately. One segment of a recent trip was a half-day ride on Amtrak where I couldn’t have “anything that could be used as a weapon.” I’m used to traveling to Washington, D.C., where I can’t carry my firearm or a decent knife, but in order to avoid any problems if I got picked for random screening, I had to cache knives, multi-tools, scissors, pepper spray and even my scalpel blade from my mini-med/survival kit before getting on the train.
A new study reveals that senior citizens typically suffer disproportionately during natural disasters, such as the recent tsunami in Japan.
One good reason to stockpile food is because global food prices are on the rise. Gasoline is predicted to reach an all time high of $5 per gallon. As the price of gasoline goes up, so does the cost of food.
With nuclear fallout from the damaged Japanese nuclear reactors reaching the West Coast of the United States, many are wondering what steps they can take to protect themselves.
Sources have confirmed that very low levels of radiation have been detected on the United States’ west coast. It is believed that the particles are from Japan’s Fukushima nuclear power plant, which was severely damaged by the recent tsunami.
Officials have ordered 140,000 people in northeastern Japan to remain indoors after it was discovered that dangerous levels of radiation had leaked from a damaged nuclear power plant.
Many people dismiss fire building as a no-brainer—just get some wood and light it with a match.
Nothing could be farther from the truth and real backwoods experts know that fire building is an art and a craft. In freezing cold conditions the ability to build a fire can save you from certain hypothermia if you are caught out in the wilds without adequate clothing or shelter to stay warm.
All fires depend on fuel in the form of combustible material and, in the woods, this usually means dry leaves, twigs, branches and other chunks of wood. If it’s raining out, how do you find dry wood? It’s easier than you think if you know where to look.
The international community has shifted its attention to Japan in the wake of last week’s historic earthquake and tsunami. As of March 14, media reports revealed that the death toll was expected to exceed 10,000 people.
My father and brother and several friends are helicopter pilots… and if you know any serious helicopter pilots who have flown more than a few hundred hours, you know that they are a different breed. For some reason, they’re willing to repeatedly go hundreds of feet in the air in a craft that has slightly better aerodynamics than a rock with sticks tied to it.
