The semiweekly Newsletter has been released to subscribers, and in it “Above Average’ Joe shares his thoughts on a variety of survival topics. He writes about getting lost and how to avoid panic or desperation. In addition, creating an everyday emergency kit and wilderness camping equipment are discussed.

In the main article, Joe wrote that “No one plans on getting lost, but if you prepared accordingly knowing how to react and what to do in order to get rescued starts at home.”

The list of nine reminders that can keep people from getting lost is a useful collection of ideas, and Joe makes it clear that planning and basic directional and mapping skills are necessary.

“Be alert for clues, such as the trail suddenly becoming faint or not reaching landmarks you know were supposed to be passed,” wrote Joe.

The article stresses staying calm, even if being lost becomes a reality. Keeping the list in mind and avoiding situations that put safety at risk is good survival skills, wrote Joe.

The Survival Tip of the Day covers the development of an EDC, or an “every day carry” kit. Joe highlights the most important, small-sized things that can be carried by someone easily throughout their everyday life.

"Life comes at you fast,” wrote Joe in the article, “and sometimes you won’t have the option of getting all of your gear together. When this happens you just have to drop everything and go. This can cause much unneeded stress but don’t lose all hope. There are a few items that can be carried with you at all times that can seriously improve your survival chances should you be caught off guard.” The rest of the article went through the list of items.

Finally, in the Practical Prepper section of the Newsletter, ‘Above Average’ Joe asks for help instead of his normal product review routine. He wants ideas from his online audience for a camping trip he is taking in November in the Texas wilderness.

“I want you to give me your take on what items balance practical purchasing with quality,” Joe requested. “I will give you the details of my specific camping situation below and some guidelines on what I am looking for.”

Readers of the Newsletter are encouraged to send in their ideas in the comment section of the article, and Joe will consider bringing them along on his trip and sharing his unbiased opinion in a future Practical Prepper review.

Articles like these are featured daily on, alongside content other prepper blogs, product reviews, e-book reviews, and a variety of topics on disaster preparation and survival. It is a non-politically biased source that is geared toward the survival side of prepping. Subscriptions to the daily Newsletter brings all of the latest information from straight to readers’ inboxes.
