Surviving on Appat Island

Appat Island, an earlier suburb on Appat Island in the Qaasuitsup metropolis in northwestern Greenland is positioned in the Uummannaq Fjord. This freezing land mass has an assortment of minor islets stretched about it, together with this presently unoccupied and cold location positioned close to Thule air force base. The flat terrain positioned above the sharp rock face is covered with ice sheets and summits at a height of 1,688 metres, and the land mass remains inaccessible by sea ice for a great deal of the year. It can only be accessed via a vessel or helicopter.  My friends Jack, Michael and I had accidentally reached there by a yacht and were faced with a bad situation. Keeping a control on our nerves, we were trying to establish our precise site by making use of the map and GPS. Jack even managed to note down the grid reference, and the name of the island, as well as the route we were on. Owing to bad phone signals, Jack somehow managed to send text messages to his family, his office, his brother and one to the Emergency SMS service.  On the other hand, Michael was all for switching off the mobile phones (in order to safeguard their battery life and then use them as necessary)

The Oroville Natural Disaster

The Oroville Dam is not only the tallest dam in the US, but also one of the most important ones. 770 feet tall, the dam provides clean water, electricity and security against floods for many cities. Now, the dam is in danger and the population does not know much about this.

From the beginning, the constructors of the dam had to face many challenges in order to build the way they planned, starting from a number of floods to human errors. However, this did not stop them and after 7 years of work the dam was finally ready to be used in 1968. In order to prevent the dam from affecting the habitat of the fish, a salmon incubator was built right next to the dam. Everything seemed perfect, at least until 2005.

Surviving Floods

Not too many people consider flooding to be a dangerous natural disaster, but it’s a lot more common than you may think. If you live in Sacramento or New Orleans chances are you may have to deal with serious flooding. During the wintertime in Sacramento the rain can truly be a serious threat to the two rivers that run through the city. There are many areas in the city that pose a serious threat to the safety of many of the citizens.

New Orleans is even worse. Located in southern Louisiana, right off the gulf coast- New Orleans has been subject to some serious hurricanes resulting in tremendous destruction. It is national known how bad the city of New Orleans is when it comes to floods and hurricanes. I would not want to be near or in the city of New Orleans when a hurricane or rain storm is happening. Both Sacramento and New Orleans are great cities to visit and live, but as far as flooding is concerned; it can be very dangerous.

Surviving Not Going To College

Here in America, our education system breeds sheep. The children of today, are told when they are young that the only way to compete with everyone else is by continuing school, going to college, getting a degree, so you can be competitive in the job market. That would be great if our education system was actually teaching our students knowledge worth knowing instead of their brand of propaganda from the diapers, through the pampers, and to the panties, boxers, and tidy whities.

The United States of America is falling well behind the education systems and the technologically advancing societies of the other first world countries. Our students are all learning the same exact curriculum all across the nation and their is very little diversity of knowledge amongst the kids. And, since everyone is all being told to go to college and compete in the job market, most of the other competitors are exactly like each other, and everyone could be shuffled around, earning the same amount of pay, and one person not being too much different from another.

Survive a Natural Disaster

Whether it’s a tornado, hurricane, ice storm, tsunami, earthquake, forest fire, or avalanche we all hate natural disasters.  Besides taking your life potentially, millions or even billions of dollars is spent every season on the aftermath of these terrible events.  There is no part of the US that isn’t safe from natural disasters.  Earth Scientists spend their lives trying to predict these events but end up falling short.  Mother Nature works in ways that are unpredictable to say the least.  There are certainly ways to prepare yourself from these life threatening catastrophes. It starts with knowing what region you live in and what the common natural disasters are.
The west coast is plagued with floods, volcano eruptions, and catastrophic earthquakes.  The Midwest has been known for its notorious tornadoes and winter ice storms that causes  tons of money  to be spent on damage every winter.  The east coast seems to be not as bad but still suffers from snow storms as well as nasty hurricanes that can be fatal in some situations.  If you’re thinking about moving to a new city in the U.S., think about your safety first.  Living in a city known for any of these natural disasters can be the difference between life or death.  Of course you shouldn’t plan your life based on these natural disasters but it’s a good idea to keep these thoughts in the back of your mind.
 If you’re wondering if Canada is better, ask yourself if you can live in the freezing cold your whole life.
The Southeast contains places in the U.S. like Florida, but again, hurricanes destroy land and people every year.  Near Florida in the Bahamas, hurricanes are regular. Hurricane Albert took out much of the Bahaman area, including famous basketball player Tim Duncan’s home along with his pool. Hurricanes can really wreak havoc on the south and south east. But when living there, try to think of the positives our Hurricanes. They can bring in dumploads of water to the city. They can cause businesses to have a lot of work coming in. Hardware stores will have spikes in business, auto detailers will get a spike, pool cleaning services will get a lot of work, and fence re-builders. If you may be the type who wants to run away and start a new business for yourself, jumping into a business listed previously, you could definitely have a huge spike in business every few years when a hurricane hits. Plus, a lot of these services are commonly paid in cash.

Surviving an Economic Collapse

Losing your job, house, and car due to economic collapse in the financial markets is the worst and hopefully you never experience it.  Most people don’t prepare for a financial disaster.  I truly believe the quote, “failing to prepare is preparing to fail” is 100% applicable to a financial disaster.  Once the day comes where your job, house, and car are gone you’re essentially homeless and not much can be done at that time.  In order to protect yourself from this type of fiasco you must prepare for years and years.  There is not a magical pill that will solve your problem at the moment of your collapse.  Most people don’t realize that many of the goods and services they constantly buy day in and day out are killing them.  It’s important to ask yourself anytime you buy something, “Is what I’m buying really important for me tomorrow?”  Messing with credit and loans for houses and cars is a very dangerous feat.  It’s important to understand that when you go to a bank to get a loan you must ask yourself, “is the item I’m purchasing going to make me cash on a monthly basis?”  If the answer is no than it’s worthless to purchase.
To prosper in a monetary system like capitalism you must own assets.  Assets are investments that pay you month after month until the investment is sold. Popular assets most people purchase in the US are real estate like rental properties, small businesses, and stocks.  Most financial advisers will tell you owning assets in a well diversified way is extremely smart.  Of course no one knows when the economy will crash, but there are other ways to hedge your money.  Gold has been known throughout history as one of the most popular precious metals.  In 1971 the US took off the gold standard for the money supply.  In essence the money supply was completely opened up for the banks to receive loans from central banks.  Money will never be the same after that day in 1971.

Underground Living

Recently, the scientific community presented us with a historic piece of news. Well tucked away, miles deep into a cave in France, a Neanderthal lair was discovered. Some 170,000 years ago, the only existing hominids at the time living in the area were constructing some sort of room. There are traces of deliberately broken stalagmites and stalactites used to create a ring around remnants of burnt animal bones. The discovery raised a lot of answers, but also charged up more questions. Some pieces of rock and material were large enough that it evidently took a team effort of humans to construct the confines of the cave. Coming from the Rouzaud archaeology team brought in to research, “The Neanderthal group responsible for these constructions had a level of social organization that was more complex than previously thought.”

With this discovery, I hope the modern human realizes that our intellect and survival skills should be very apt to prepare to survive in areas beneath the surface of the Earth. For those that want to venture out and test their survival skills, are running away for problems, or wish to live in isolation, highly consider living underground.

Much of my life, I had a fascination with digging. Finding new areas to dig a large hole and create a fortress, I kept this passion for years until I tested out an underground fortress that I helped a friend of mine create in a forest far out from civilization where I realized how simple life could really be.

When you envision yourself living underground, what kind of shelter do you hope for? Continue reading “Underground Living”

What is Surviving

When people hear the word survive, what do they think about. Some people may think about an scraggly, bearded, older man living in the middle of a dense forest  using tools that he has created out of the environment to live his day to day life. Some people think that it is living through an outbreak of some sort, could be virus, could be economic, could be zombies. When I hear the word survive, I think of the basic struggles that the average person must go through just to get through their day. I think of the middle class families who are working for their bosses and masters just to get a little bit of satisfaction in return. Surviving is just living just below your means. All of us would like to be able to do more with our lives, but there are truly restrictions put in place to prevent us from doing so. We are required to pay taxes to our higher powers, and we are required to follow our religions, and we are required to serve. But when an outbreak happens, it is every person for themselves. Think about how your life would dramatically shift if their were new restrictions put in place. Would you settle for it? Would you allow it? Would you leave and go out on your own?

Cause for Concern

Much of the world today revolves around what the citizens hear through their ears. Since many of us must work at least 40 hours a week to provide for ourselves and our families, much of what we learn is through the internet, television, radio, and our peers. The problem with that is, a lot of the noise that goes through our ears has been filtered specifically to influence our beliefs. What we call “news” is often the opinions of the companies who own the media stations and are specifically told what needs to be reciprocated to the masses.

At this point in history, much of the world is finding out what kind of propaganda is being shoved in our faces, and so many are tired of it. Thanks to the internet, word has been spread, people’s voices are being heard. They can drown everyone out as much as they want, but the masses influence is spreading.

All of these wars that have been fought, people who have been silenced, leaders who have been killed, the top may have decided to fight back. For those who have a reason to hide, it may be time to dip out and go out on your own, or you will be going out on their terms.

Natural disasters are also posing a grave threat to people who do not pay attention, do not understand, or do not care about the grave threats that the Earth’s functions pose to the people. Volcano eruptions, earthquakes, Tsunamis, flash floods, hurricanes, thunderstorms, tornadoes, Co2 gasses, smog filled cities, acid rain, and so much more are constant threats to their survival of the human race. Many do not truly understand what truly is at stake.

For these reasons, it may be incumbent for you to start to search for a new location for you or your family’s sake. Thank goodness you turned to this blog. We will be talking about survival possibilities, locations for you to reside, and what you can do to protect yourself. In the coming weeks, there will be many blog posts relating to this subject, and you surely are not going to want to miss it!
