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 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.
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.
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.

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 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?
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!
Do you ever feel like there is a chance of upcoming need for survival in the coming future. Zombie outbreak, volcano eruption, massive ice age, Earth ripping Earthquake, ozone layer further opening, economic collapse, martial law, war, personal survival reasons. If any of the previously listed are reasons that you may need to get out of your comfort zone and go survive on your own with a group, then you have come to right site to discover the information necessary to succeed. We will be discussing survival tactic in the case of possibly the inevitable. Join us for this wild ride.
