A few months ago, when I was first starting out, I felt overwhelmed with all the expenses associated with preparing, and what seemed like a mountain of stuff to acquire. Then I discovered M.D. Creekmore’s Survivalist Blog http://www.thesurvivalistblog.net/. I found that he has a lot of informative articles on getting started, AND he emphasized the low cost and easy ways to begin the preparedness journey.
I really appreciated such articles as:
Stocking the Survival Pantry http://www.thesurvivalistblog.net/survival-food/stocking-pantry-for-survival/
10 Thing to Do Now! http://www.thesurvivalistblog.net/survival-food/survival-food-storage-walmart/
How to Survive TEOTWAWKI in 14 Easy Steps http://www.thesurvivalistblog.net/this-n-that/how-to-survive-teotwawki-in-14-easy/
The articles are written in a practical and down-to-earth manner, that even a person who has no idea where to start would not feel intimidated. If you are a just starting out, I would recommend the section called TOP POSTS as a good place to start reading. From there you can just click on the topics the interest you.
There is a multitude of articles that would be of interest to people in various stages of preparedness. More on the “advanced” category, he also has articles regarding relocating to a survival retreat (as an example, see Advice on Relocation http://www.thesurvivalistblog.net/uncategorized/advise-on-relocation/) which may not apply to me right now, but he does show that it is doable.
Is there anything I don’t like about this site? I am not as partial to the guns and ammo type of articles, but they are still informative, and my husband likes those sections. Whether you are a beginner or advanced in your preparedness efforts, you will find the Survivalist Blog a great resource.
