Natural Disasters

Food and Water for Short and Long Term Survival

As many survival experts will tell you, anything can happen to anyone at any time. No crisis should be an unexpected surprise and it will not be if you are prepared. It is never a question of if something will happen the only question is when.

Cyber terrorists can shut down power grids, cause malfunctions at water treatment plants and/or shut down rail and transportation systems. They can do all this once they have breached security protocols. It has happened in the past and it will happen again. Once a disaster of this magnitude strikes, you may very well be on your own for months or even longer. Typically, strikes against a country’s infrastructure are just a prelude to things to come, a softening of the defenses if you will. The citizens of any country where this happens may see years of rebuilding and chaos before life, if ever, is back to the new normal.

Hoo-Rag an excellent product for your BOB

Hoo-Rag

So I came across a cool little product that I will be keeping in my bug out bag from now on, it’s called the Hoo-rag. Whats a Hoo-rag you ask? It’s a cool type of bandana that can be used in a variety of different ways. Not only can you wear it like a regular bandana without having to tie it, but it can also be worn as a balaclava, face rag, head band, neck warmer, pony tail rag, pirate rag, and an alice rag. This could be very useful in a SHTF type scenario i.e. protect from dust, sun, sweat ect.

 

You can also change the way you wear it in a matter of seconds which is a plus and it can be used to strain water if need be.  I think it’s so useful that I plan on getting another one for my get home bag. They come in a variety of colors and patterns including many popular camo patterns. The video below gives a demonstration on how easily you can change the way you wear it. Hoo Rag also specializes in bandanas for the US Marine Corps, fisherman, motorcyclists and even dogs!

The price of the Hoo Rag is $14.95 for most designs and if you aren’t picky about the design, there are 3 color combinations (black/white, white/black/, pink/white) available with the Hoo Rag logo for $9.95

Hypothermia How to Avoid It and Recognize the Symptoms

Hypothermia is a medical condition typically brought on by the body’s exposure to cold temperatures or immersion in cold water. Hypothermia is diagnosed when the body loses heat faster that it can produce heat. Heat conducts from warm to cold, so a body not adequately protected from cold temperatures will conduct body heat into the surrounding air thus chilling the body rapidly. The average body temperature is 98.6ᵒF/37ᵒC and when that temperature drops to 95ᵒF/35ᵒC, the person is in the initial stages of hypothermia. Failure to warm the body once in hypothermia will cause the heart and other organs to work harder and eventually fail resulting in death.
