Ammunition The New Apocalypse Currency?

08 May 2012 / 0 Comments / in Survival Guides

Ammuntion The New Apocalypse Currency

Will ammunition be the new currency after the Apocalypse?

So what should we be saving up right now that will actually be of value to us after the Apocalypse? I mean planning ahead with your survival gear and survival kits is good temporarily but when you run out of all your resources you will need to learn to barter and trade with others to get what you need.

We all know that all the valuable gold and paper money we’ve been saving will no longer have any significance once Doomsday is upon us.

The most important currency will be the ability for people to be able to survive on their own and learn to create value by providing services and manufactured goods for others.

So that leads us to my topic. What about ammo? Should you start buying and stocking ammunition now? Desired items like ammunition will be easier to transport, store, have a longer shelf life and have more value than gold or worthless dollars you may have in your savings.

Ammunition will become a necessary item for people who want to protect their stuff and be able to hunt to feed themselves. So it seems obvious that you should start buying a crap load of ammo!! ^__^

The best thing about ammo is that it will still be useful in the Apocalypse, it’s easy to carry on a person, it’s easily divisible thus making it easier to do transactions with.

Ammunition The New Apocalypse Currency

Ammunition has an average shelf life of 50 years

According to one site the following amounts of ammunition are recommended for personal use.

  • 9mm – 5,000 rounds
  • .223 – 10,000 to 15,000 rounds
  • 12 gauge – 5,000 to 10,000 bird shot,
  • 12 gauge – 1,000 to 2,500 00buck
  • 12 gauge – 500 to 1,000 slugs
  • .308 – 5,000 to 10,000 rounds

According to the value today, those rounds would cost:

  • 9mm – 5,000 rounds = $1,250
  • .223 – 10,000 to 15,000 rounds = $3,500 – $5,250
  • 12 gauge – 5,000 to 10,000 bird shot = $2,250 – $4,500
  • 12 gauge – 1,000 to 2,500 00buck = $900 – $2,250
  • 12 gauge – 500 to 1,000 slugs = $450 – $900
  • .308 – 5,000 to 10,000 rounds = $3,500 – $7,000

So… What do you think? Is it worth stocking now or are you going to wait till the End of the World as we know it? ^__^

How to make a fire for survival

Fire I Made with my Epic Skills

Fire I Made with my Epic Skills — Photo by me!

To know how to make a fire is one of the most fundamental skills for Post-Apocalyptic survival. Practice and learn different methods of fire starting, so you know how to make a fire anywhere and under any condition. When food starts to get scarce you will need to venture into the wilderness to hunt for game and you may be out there for a couple of days. Without the skills to make a fire you will be a goner in no time. So here are some tips on how to make a fire.

 

Several needs

A fire can fulfill several needs. It can keep you warm and dry. You can use it to cook food, purify water and to sterilize bandages. It can scare away dangerous animals and its smoke can keep flying insects at bay.

Fireplace

Before you can begin to build your fire, select your fire location. Select it with care, a good fire location is important. First choose a site that is sheltered and protected from the wind and has a supply of wood or other fuel available.

There should be nothing nearby that could catch fire, such as dry vegetation. Make sure your fire doesn’t get out of control. Safety is an essential consideration. Clear any debris away and start the fire on solid ground or on a layer of stones or on a flat shale rock. This will eliminate the possibility of a ground fire and leave no trace of the fire on the ground, except soot stones.

Fire material

To make a fire, you need to build it up gradually, beginning with small pieces of wood, then progressing to larger pieces as the fire gets going. You can grade your fire material into tinder, kindling, and fuel.

Tinder

You will need some material that ignites very easily to start a fire. Good tinder is dry material that takes only a spark to ignite. The tinder must be absolutely dry. There are a number of things you can use for tinder, paper, leaves, grass, bark and resin. You will find resin in spruce and pine trees. Resin will burn even if it is wet.

Use your Survival Knife to turn dry sticks and pieces of bark into powdery tinder. Tinder is the most important part of your fire, so prepare it well. If you have found resin, rub it on small twigs and sticks. Have plenty of tinder on hand so your fire will not go out. Collect tinder before you need it. Put tinder in your pocket or backpack, so you always have it handy.

Stormproof Matches

Stormproof Matches

Learn how to light a fire with matches, to light your tinder. You can also light your fire with a flint striker.

Start a fire with matches

  • Always carry waterproof matches with you. Every match you have is like gold. One match for one fire!
  • Make sure you have gathered together all the materials you need before lighting the fire.
  • Always light your campfire from the upwind side,shield your fire area with your body or make a windshield with your jacket or other gear before lighting your fire.
  • Carefully light the tinder. When the tinder start to burn, use the same match and try to light the tinder on the opposite side.
  • Add more tinder slowly, then kindling, and build your fire up gradually.

Start a fire with flint striker

  • Place the sparking stick close to the tinder. Use a knife or the attached edged tool and draw it slowly downwards over the sparking stick. Hot sparks are produced. If you have prepared your tinder appropriately it will catch fire.
  • Shield your fire area. When the fire is becoming established, slowly add more tinder, then add thin sticks of wood. Build your fire up gradually.

Kindling

Kindling is readily combustible material that you add to the burning tinder. Small dry twigs and sticks are best. They should easily light when placed on a small flame. The dead branches on the undersides of trees provide excellent kindling, and they are usually dry, even if it has rained for weeks.

Fuel

Once your fire is established, you can add larger pieces of firewood. Make sure your firewood is as dry as possible. Look for dead trees, they are usually a good source of dry firewood.

Remember:

- Never leave a campfire unattended. Make sure your fire is completely out before leaving camp. Check it at least twice.

How to Survive an Alien Invasion Attack

20 Apr 2012 / 0 Comments / in Survival Guides
Alien Invasion by Ramsesmelendez

Alien Invasion by Ramsesmelendez

If you are a fan of Aliens and Sci-Fi in general then you’ve probably wondered about how you’d survive if Aliens came and started taking over our beautiful planet. Well, you’re in for an interesting read.

The following is a distillation of information on alien attacks found in print, television, film and interactive media designed to offer you a very basic strategy in the unlikely event of an alien invasion/attack.

Surviving an alien invasion may be the single most important thing you do for yourself and for humankind. Do not give up hope. Around 75,000 years ago humanity went through a great extinction. At its lowest point, there were around 15,000 human beings in existence. Now look at us! Surviving an alien invasion will most likely only require surviving the initial attack, then rebuilding. If, however, the aliens appear to be occupying the planet, you must also consider forming a resistance movement.

Steps

1. Find cover and find it quickly! When the aliens attack, it is almost certainly going to be a surprise. If I have learned anything (citation needed), it’s that aliens are sneaky. They may be hiding on the dark side of the moon, or staying in our orbit on the other side of the sun while they plan their attack, so it’s very important to be familiar with your environment and be prepared to use it to your advantage.

2. Once you’re there, stay put unless you deem it more perilous to stay than to run for other cover. It’s the guy running down the center of the street screaming that makes an easy target. Don’t be that guy! If you have run out in the open, do what herbivores do: change your direction randomly to throw off the aim of your alien overlords. While your 6-minute mile may not be any match for superior alien technology, you might just get lucky anyway.

3. After surviving the initial attack, it’s important to find supplies. Try places that aren’t too obvious. While everyone is looting the grocery store, go loot the hunting and camping supply stores. This has a few advantages: the food in a camping supply store is all dehydrated, so it will be easy to carry, and you can stock up on other things that will be important, like that 12-gauge double-barreled Remington, Colman lamp, propane. Many camping supply stores also have distilled water by the gallon. Feel free to take a few grocery carts, the mall cops probably didn’t come to work today.

4. Establish a base of operations. Firstly, try to affiliate yourself with the up-and-comers of the new resistance. You can usually spot them by their stone features, no-nonsense demeanor, and chain-smoking. If no resistance appears to be in place, practice your stony expressions, no-nonsense demeanor, and chain-smoking. Others will gravitate to you as these things inspire confidence.

5. Save the children. These are the people who will grow up to be more scarred and hate the alien invaders more than you hate the neighbor who ran over your puppy when you were little. They will be very important later. One will likely be a tactical genius with very impressive stony expressions, no-nonsense demeanor, and an avid chain smoker. That child may very well lead the ragtag remnants of the human race to victory against the alien invaders.

6. Save the ladies aged 18 – 34. Probably the most important thing to do when faced with extinction is to procreate…a lot! In the original Planet of the Apes (1968) a group of scientists were on their way to some distant world to attempt to populate it. The strange thing is that out of all the people going to populate this world, they brought exactly one woman with them. Had they not wound up on the Planet of the Apes, their opposable thumbs still wouldn’t have got them out of that pickle when they realized their mistake. Furthering the species requires healthy fertile females much more than males. In fact, if an Alien Invasion has occurred and you happen to be a young lady browsing this wiki hoping for some last minute cramming since you found cover and have time to kill before seeking supplies, rest assured that you are very important and any macho chuckle-head who thinks otherwise obviously has very little perspective and will likely have a few moments of realization just before getting vaporized in a very meaningful moment. But that’s okay; you only need a handful of guys for procreative purposes.

7. Save the technically knowledgeable. While maybe not the most obvious choice when the world is collapsing around you, it is very important to save people with technical savvy. When the aliens invade, they aren’t coming at you with pointy sticks. They’re going to be packing heat in a form that we probably haven’t seen and will likely not understand. The best people to tackle the understanding and application phase are the engineers. What these people lack in pectoral muscles they can more than make up for in a lab coat.

8. Once there are sufficient children in gestation to carry on humanity in the next generation, it’s time to strike back. We have probably had a few months where we’ve setup a lab in our base of operations (see step four). The technically knowledgeable have managed wonders with the few scraps of technology that you managed to gather. We’re starting to understand the alien technologies and how to harness them for a counter-attack. Members of the resistance have been observing the alien behavior and may have identified a weakness or general trend that dominates the entire race (not to encourage stereotyping). Now it’s time for tactics. If you happen to know any Spartans, Janissaries, Special Ops, or even really good chess players, you want them in on this part. All alien invaders tend to be very centralized. They will have a central “mother ship” or fortify their primary residence in a large citadel, something central, big and intimidating. Obviously, attacking from outside is futile, so you have to find a way in.

9. Sneaking into an alien stronghold can be tricky. It will likely take all of the talents of your technically knowledgeable to figure out how to use the alien technology to help you accomplish this. Mostly, it seems like hijacking an alien vessel and working through the complicated system of security checks is how it happens, although some aliens may have a technology similar to RFID, so the vehicle itself is your ticket in.

10. Come prepared for the party. While it is probably a good idea to have a variety of small and large incendiary devices at your disposal, you may find that the alien technology itself is very volatile. In any event, it’s better to have a bomb and not need it, than need a bomb and not have it.

11. Chances are, the aliens did not file the blueprints for their building/mother ship with the local planning office, so you will need the help of some of your technically knowledgeable again—hopefully someone with a background in structural engineering. The idea is to setup an appropriately sized explosive device to take down their central hub and leave the rest of the aliens as sitting ducks. If it’s a mother ship, you’re probably looking to get it near the center. If it’s a citadel your common sense may lead you astray. One would think that a powerful explosion at ground level would be the way to destroy the citadel, but the alien technologies are either hidden well below the citadel in an underground chamber, or really high in the citadel. While an explosion at ground level should take out the stuff really high in the citadel, it won’t do anything for an underground chamber, so you really have to take the time to figure out where it is. Once you’ve done that, you will either be really low underground or really high in the citadel, so you can just drop your appropriately sized explosive device and make for the elevators.

12. Once the alien stronghold is destroyed, you’re going to have to start mop-up operations to clear out the decentralized alien forces. They will be weaker now, because they drew heavily on the power of their central system.

13. While you’re engaged in mop-up operations, make sure to put the technically knowledgeable to the task of retrofitting the alien technologies to help rebuild. Keep in mind that you have just had a global cataclysmic event, so think small. Have lots of trees and plants. Also, score yourself an alien land and air vessel. You’ll be the envy of all humanity.

14. Once mop-up operations are finished, you’re pretty much done. The children you saved will have grown both technically knowledgeable and pissed off enough to take over from here. They’ll probably figure out how to pinpoint the alien home world and launch an offensive using alien technology and human ingenuity to outsmart the alien race.

15. A lot has happened since the alien invasion. You’ve likely fathered or mothered at least one child if not several. You’ve proven yourself a capable mover and shaker in the resistance, a powerful adversary to the aliens, and a fine pilot of alien land vehicles and spacecrafts. All that’s left is to get involved in agriculture to help sustain the populations. They say that working the Earth has a healing effect on people. I never experienced that working in agriculture, but they say that. Maybe it does. At any rate, you’ll probably need it.

Tips

  • Hang out with the type of people you think could survive an alien invasion: U.S. Marines, Israeli Police, Pakistani weapon smiths, etc.
  • Be prepared. Have a plan. How are you going to find cover? Where’s the best place to get supplies in the pandemonium?
  • Dress down, think functional. Avoid really bright colors. You just went through an apocalypse, people will think you’re a jerk if you dress too cheery.
  • Get a dog—not a pug or toy poodle. Get something smart and loyal, like an Australian Shepherd or a Rhodesian Ridgeback. Consider a mutt, if you can’t find one with pedigree papers.

Warnings

  • Aliens may be hostile, particularly aliens invading the planet.
Things You’ll Need
  • A hostile alien force.
  • Human ingenuity

How to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse

19 Apr 2012 / 0 Comments / in Survival Guides
AMC's Walking Dead Series

AMC's Walking Dead Series

There are all kinds of emergencies out there that we can prepare for. Take a zombie apocalypse for example. That’s right, z-o-m-b-i-e a-p-o-c-a-l-y-p-s-e. You may laugh now, but when it happens you’ll be happy you read this, and hey, maybe you’ll even learn a thing or two about how to prepare for a real emergency.

The rise of zombies in pop culture has given credence to the idea that a zombie apocalypse could happen. In such a scenario zombies would take over entire countries, roaming city streets eating anything living that got in their way. The proliferation of this idea has led many people to wonder “How do I prepare for a zombie apocalypse?”

Well, here are some answers to that question for ya, and hopefully a few extra tips about preparing for real emergencies too!

Some of the supplies for your emergency kit

Better Safe than Sorry

So what do you need to do before zombies…or hurricanes or pandemics for example, actually happen? First of all, you should have an emergency kit in your house. This includes things like water, food, and other supplies to get you through the first couple of days before you can locate a zombie-free refugee camp (or in the event of a natural disaster, it will buy you some time until you are able to make your way to an evacuation shelter or utility lines are restored). Below are a few items you should include in your kit, for a full list visit the CDC Emergency page.

  • Water (1 gallon per person per day)
  • Food (stock up on non-perishable items that you eat regularly)
  • Medications (this includes prescription and non-prescription meds)
  • Tools and Supplies (utility knife, duct tape, battery powered radio, etc.)
  • Sanitation and Hygiene (household bleach, soap, towels, etc.)
  • Clothing and Bedding (a change of clothes for each family member and blankets)
  • Important documents (copies of your driver’s license, passport, and birth certificate to name a few)
  • First Aid supplies (although you’re a goner if a zombie bites you, you can use these supplies to treat basic cuts and lacerations that you might get during a tornado or hurricane)

Once you’ve made your emergency kit, you should sit down with your family and come up with an emergency plan. This includes where you would go and who you would call if zombies started appearing outside your door step. You can also implement this plan if there is a flood, earthquake, or other emergency.

Family members meeting by their mailbox. You should pick two meeting places, one close to your home and farther away

  • Identify the types of emergencies that are possible in your area. Besides a zombie apocalypse, this may include floods, tornadoes, or earthquakes. If you are unsure contact your local Red Cross chapter for more information.
  • Pick a meeting place for your family to regroup in case zombies invade your home…or your town evacuates because of a hurricane. Pick one place right outside your home for sudden emergencies and one place outside of your neighborhood in case you are unable to return home right away.
  • Identify your emergency contacts. Make a list of local contacts like the police, fire department, and your local zombie response team. Also identify an out-of-state contact that you can call during an emergency to let the rest of your family know you are ok.
  • Plan your evacuation route. When zombies are hungry they won’t stop until they get food (i.e., brains), which means you need to get out of town fast! Plan where you would go and multiple routes you would take ahead of time so that the flesh eaters don’t have a chance! This is also helpful when natural disasters strike and you have to take shelter fast.

I have my survival kit and my emergency plan, now what?

So now that you know how to make your survival kit and have somewhat of an emergency plan, what type of weapons and equipment should you have just in case a Zombie Apocalypse was to really happen? You can checkout some Zombie Apocalypse survival equipment here.

Also, take a look at the Making yourself Apocalypse-Read Guide if you haven’t already. ^__^
