BLOGS PLUS

Blogs are places where people expose their thoughts and feelings to the world, for better or worse, and we can glean much from those of other people. On this page we'd like to share with you some of the very best that we have found in the areas of preparedness and gardening.

We have beliefs and opinions (just like you) that we consider significant enough to warrant their posting to the world through our website and blogs, and have spent considerable time and effort to make them pleasant places for you to visit. If you disagree with anything you read here, that is your right. You are welcome to send us your comments, and we will probably respond. However, we do not wish (nor do we have the time) to engage in endless arguing and debates that produce no good fruit.

If you are aware of blogs, websites and other information on these particular topics that would benefit our readers, you are welcome to send us the information.

Thanks for visiting today!

  • One of Mike's missions is to help us prepare for disaster. This website is devoted to the belief that Yeshua HaMashiach is the Messiah over the whole House of Israel. His return to set up His Kingdom is very near. We seek to help prepare His family for the troublesome days which scripture states will precede His coming, the time of Jacob's Trouble. Deuteronomy 30 tells us that Torah will give us life through every situation and circumstance we may face. We seek to help prepare the family of God spiritually, emotionally and physically.

  • Victoria Gazeley started dreaming about modern homesteading in the late 1990s when she found an original homesteader’s cabin in the woods and decided to restore it...she settled into her small heritage log cabin on 6 acres of west coast rainforest and began the process of learning the skills that would turn it into a tiny haven of style and self-sufficiency.
  • In this blog she shares what she has learned and what she is learning.
  • For example, she has some great information on This link goes off-site. chickens.

    This link goes off-site. Wonder Box (or Wonder Oven, or Haystack Cooker, or whatever you want to call it--it goes by many names).
  • A wonder box is a heat retention cooker. After you bring your food to a boil, (so it is heated throughout) using any number of cooking methods, you remove it from the heat source and quickly place the pot inside the wonder box.
  • The insulation of the wonder box will slow your food’s loss of heat keeping it at cooking temperatures for hours. Using a wonder box reduces the amount of fuel needed to cook your meal because the fuel that would normally be used to keep your food at cooking temperatures after it has started boiling is eliminated.
  • The link above will take you to the I Will Prepare website, where you can get instructions for making the square wonder box.
  • I figured out the dimensions for making this a This is a PDF file. rectangular (rather than square) wonder oven because I wanted to use it with my big oval crockpots. (The instructions are the same.) I then made some; took pictures and everything! Most of the pictures were too dark (what can I say; photography is not my schtick) but I have posted some of them in the left sidebar for your viewing pleasure!
  • I learned from This link goes off-site. Megan Smith over at My Food Storage Cookbook that you can even bake muffins and bread in it! It really works! In the left sidebar you can see some bread I baked in stainless steel salt/pepper cups that This link goes off-site.I won from Megan in a give-away. She liked my idea of the rectangular wonder oven so much she gave me 5 of them! Thanks, Megan. You are a wonderful gal!


  • Homesteading off-grid, practicing survival & disaster preparedness.
  • There are many ways to make a heat retention cooker. This is a post about making one out of materials you ordinarily use for other purposes (a laundry basket, towel, blankets).
  • It also details how you can prepare dry beans pretty-much effortlessly.


  • Saratoga Jacks is the leader in practical, affordable, energy efficient and portable thermal cookers.
  • Here you can purchase a new thermal cooker, download thermal cooking recipes, or follow their blog.
  • You can even buy an accessory kit for the Jack, which allows you to bake bread and other things in it! I understand that the inspiration for this is Megan Smith's muffins in a wonder oven idea. The day my Saratoga Jack arrived I baked bread in it using the loaf pan--and it worked great! In fact, the bread was flufflier than the loaves I baked in the regular oven were! Next I want to try making a coffee cake or something similar in the round pan.
  • This link goes off-site. Thermal Cooker FAQs. This is a great preparedness tool!
  • This link goes off-site. Saratoga Jacks Blog. Learn how to use the Jack.


  • On these pages, The DO Dude has jotted down all the advice he can think of to help you choose a good Dutch Oven, get it ready, keep it in good shape, and use it to create magnificent meals.

    This link goes off-site. Dutch Oven Care and Use. Introduction, selecting, seasoning, cleaning, restoring, regulating, tools, tips, and recipes.
  • The page is really dedicated on how to cook in a Dutch Oven, not what to cook. Whatever recipe you decide to cook, knowing how to cook it properly is probably the most important thing you can learn. Never look for "Dutch Oven" recipes--simply look for "recipes", because whatever you can cook in your house, you can cook in a Dutch Oven, and for some unknown reason it tastes better.

  • Wild food is everywhere! Get familiar with it! Start using it!
  • The purpose of this site is to help you begin to seek your own free life, should you wish to do so. Bear in mind, however, that the process of living and eating free (and deliciously!) does not happen overnight. Linda found this out after years of existence in the Adirondack wilderness.

    This link goes off-site. Wilderness Survival. The contents of this website are taken from actual U.S. Army training manuals. You will not find a more complete resource on Wilderness Survival.
  • Don't make the mistake of thinking that being in a survival situation would be fun. Wilderness Survival is not a game and there is no immunity.
  • Take action and educate yourself on survival techniques. Nature is unforgiving and you must be prepared to fight to stay alive.
  • Check out this section on This link goes off-site. Cold Weather Survival. One of the most difficult survival situations is a cold weather scenario. With a little knowledge of the environment, proper plans, and appropriate equipment, you can overcome the elements. Remember, winter weather is highly variable. Cold is a far greater threat to survival than it appears. It decreases your ability to think and weakens your will to do anything except to get warm. Cold is an insidious enemy; as it numbs the mind and body, it subdues the will to survive. Cold makes it very easy to forget your ultimate goal--to survive.
  • Here's a tip from the sub-section on This link goes off-site. Shelters. Note: In extreme cold, do not use metal, such as an aircraft fuselage, for shelter. The metal will conduct away from the shelter what little heat you can generate.

  • Four Dog tent stoves and camp gear has been trail-tested and approved by novice and professional guides, trappers, hunters, bushcrafters, long distance hikers and canoeists surviving in the harshest, coldest outdoor conditions in the Northern United States, Canada, and all over the world.
  • Do check out the videos; they're very educational.


  • This is the tent stove we bought, because it is collapsible. It's just one of many stoves this company markets.
  • Canvas Tent Shop will custom-make a tent for you.


  • Canadian source for such things as wall tents, tent stoves, cots, tarps, bedrolls, game bags, bear fences.
  • Bear fences--sounds like something we should get!


  • These things are awesome! In one package you get two cots that you can use separately or combine into a bunk--and even configure into a bench!
  • We bought ours at the This link goes off-site. Costco warehouse at a cheaper price, and with free shipping!
  • For inspiration, watch this This link goes off-site. Disc-O-Bed assembly video demo.


    This link goes off-site. P-Style, a feminine urination device (FUD).
  • Google "family cloths" and you'll find a whole bunch of blog posts from people who have tried them and loved them. This is just one.
  • When we run out of our supply of toilet paper and/or need to conserve space, we're going to be using some sort of "family cloths," like it or not, so we might as well get used to them now!

    This link goes off-site. Lehman's. At Lehman's, being old-fashioned is always in fashion.

  • Frugal living strategies have helped Clair Schwan become debt-free, retire early, stretch his dollars, be more self-reliant, and enjoy financial freedom and peace of mind. If this sounds appealing, then this site is a good place for you to be. Here you'll find over 560 pages of quality material for your review and use.
  • Schwan claims to be a "thrivalist" rather than a "survivalist" but his site appeals to me because these are all skills a prepper needs. Check out the tabs: Frugal Living, Frugal Mindset, Money Talk, Self-Reliance.

  • True preparedness means that you can survive in the real world. We go through life experiencing real events with real people, not some idealized prepper camp in the boondocks where you have no contact with the outside world.
  • Daisy writes about current events because if we don’t know precisely what’s going on in the world and understand why it’s going on, how can we be prepared to meet the challenges head on? If we can’t analyze motives and see the direction we are being pushed toward, we can’t predict what comes next. If we can’t see that we’re told things are for our own good directly for the profit of some politician or corporation, we’re nothing but mindless sheep being led to the slaughter.
