The most recent Newsletter has been released, and in it Managing Editor and lead blogger ‘Above Average’ Joe shares useful knowledge that will help people trying to develop their preparation skills.

The main article is centered around the Black Friday shopping season, when crowds can turn violent and put people in a crisis situation. It’s hard for Joe to imagine things getting to that point, but it happens more often than most would realize.

“It confounds me to no end that every Thanksgiving, a day in which we give thanks for all that we have, is immediately followed by a day created by retailers to prey on us by luring us in with the prospect of a deep discount on an item that we want,” wrote Joe. “The display of people at their most vicious and greedy never fails to put me in a state of shock. The fact that a riot will break out over a video game or this year’s hot new doll is almost sickening.”

Joe goes through a number of occurrences in the recent past where things got out of hand, and previews a future piece that will include tips on avoiding riots or violent crowds.

The Survival Tip of the Day comes from a reader, who shared his advice on reviving old batteries.

“Many “dead” car batteries are actually perfectly good batteries,” said the article. “They just can no longer provide the hundreds of amps needed to start a car.”

The Practical Prepper section highlights Joe’s experience with turning his bathtub into a water storage container. Nothing seemed to work well for Joe, until he found a specialized tool.

“I was speaking to one of my fellow preppers and he introduced me to the WaterBOB,” said Joe in the article. “It’s a neat tool that works basically like a large scale version of a hydration bladder found in your typical Camelbak pack.”

Joe reviews the WaterBOB with the typical list of pros and cons, and he determines the survival item to be a valuable addition to emergency preparation supplies.

“At only around $30.00,I find the WaterBOB well worth having; it doesn’t take up much space at all, and when it comes to survival, 100 gallons of clean, safe, drinking water can make a world of difference,” wrote Joe.

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.

Whether readers need wilderness survival tips or strategies to plan for an urban disaster, covers it all. Well on its way to becoming a preeminent member of the survival blog-o-sphere, is contributing to the conversation and hopes readers do as well.

As Joe and the team like to say, “It’s your life. Prepare to survive.”
