I just got an antique Sears Roebuck & Co wood burning stove for $10. On the front plate it shows the company name and then "No Hot Pot 30A". Guess that is the model number. It only stands 2 feet high. It has a 2 burner cooking top and a water boiler a
What is survival?
When most people think of survival or emergency readiness, they probably imagine a bunch of gun toting camouflaged rednecks running through the woods shooting anything that moves. But disaster preparedness is important for eve

Yesterday the weather was awesome. The sun was shining and it was very warm. Almost like summer. So I took out the rubberized tar roof repair and went to work on the roof of my off grid camper. For about $15 I got a gallon of this roof repai
This is some work I did a few months ago, but I took a lot of photos and wanted to share it anyway. The slide in truck camper is my first ever camper and when I got it, the guy told me it had no water leaks and everything was good. Not.
Right after I got it home, we had a h

It rained a few days in a row, quite heavily. The leak above the sofa that I found was worse than ever. I decided to rip down the ceiling panel and see how bad it was.
But where the water was coming in there is very bad rot and dam
Winter is coming fast and if I want to use this camper for off grid living during the cold months, then I need to get it ready soon. I plan to stay out in the camper during the winter and see if I can manage without any power or water hookups from the utility companies. I will need to provide hea
ThruNite sent me their super powerful TN42 flashlight with a visible beam range of 1,550 Meters/yards. This LED spotlight is so bright that it can be seen from 5 miles away and outshines even argon lamps.
The TN42C LED search light has a CREE XHP35 HI LED with a
I am building a wood stove water boiler heating system for our off grid winter greenhouse using an antique wood stove water boiler and two 55 gallon steel barrels. This will work using the thermosiphon effect and will have no moving parts and no outside power source to run it.
We got up to find a beautiful and snowy homestead. We had four inches of snow fall on us during the night, covering the land in white. The solar panels were also covered so I had to sweep them off.
By the way, the solar panels are currently laying flat because the wind out

I just picked up a huge 1986 32 foot fleetwood camper for free out of the classifieds. This thing is loaded. Except, I seem to always get them with no fridge and no heater. Again, they are missing in this one. Wonder why people keep pulling these out.
This will be a continuing list of things I want to do with the survival camper. This list will be for myself as well as for others. A permanent list I can access anywhere.
There are a number of future projects I want to do with the survival camper. As I finish with a projec
Well, I had been planning a trip up north for a month now with my new survival camper. It wasnt ready by far, but hey, it was still quite warm out. It shouldnt be a problem to go out in my survival camper for a couple days with no heater. I figured I could experiment with heating ideas I had been
Since my survival camper already had half of its power hungry appliances stripped out, I decided to go all the way and remove the rest of the 120 volt junk. The camper had a huge circuit breaker box and a very heavy, large power inverter. The power inverter converted the 120 volt mains powe
The idea of a survival camper came up when I was thinking about bugging out into the mountains. At first I thought I would just drive as far
I decided to make this list as much for my self as for anyone else. I just figured that my own packing list may help someone else. I have been practicing survival and foraging since I was young and have a lot of hands on experience. Many people plan for survival but may not have much real experie
