Knots, basic recipes, and gear research are all covered in the latest Survival Life Newsletter.

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., the expert-led survival and prepper blog, has published its latest Newsletter on a variety of topics to help people across the globe with their plans and knowledge.

The main article, written by Editor and blogger ‘Above Average’ Joe, covers the fine survival art of knot tying.

“Knot tying has always been one of those key outdoor skills that even the most experienced survivalist’s often take for granted. Any time outdoors can often show you just how much your success or failure can depend on your ability to tie a decent knot,” wrote Joe in the article.

Joe shares “a few very basic knots that are extremely helpful to know regardless of if you are in a life or death survival situation or simply pitching a tent on a family camping trip.”

In lieu of the Survival Tip of the Day, Joe responded to a huge amount of feedback regarding his grandmother’s Buttermilk Biscuit recipe, which is made in a cast iron skillet. Cast iron is a great survival and camping tool, and this recipe uses very basic ingredients that can be added to any emergency food storage supply.

“Unfortunately,” Joe wrote, “I had to decipher measurements like a pinch, dash, and handful; this is not an easy task since she knows from feel alone what the right texture is for the biscuits. After speaking to her at length and making them alongside her for the first time since I was a little boy, I finally got the basics of the recipe down.”

The Practical Prepper section of the Newsletter was devoted to the Gerber Zombie Survival Kit, a survival tool that’s based on a “joke,” but packs a real punch nonetheless.

“With Max brooks amazing zombie survival guide (yes I am a fan of the book), its follow up World War Z, and shows like The Walking Dead (a personal favorite of mine), it’s no surprise that some big names have jumped on the bandwagon and started selling everything from zombie stopper ammo to specific zombie slayer knives,” Joe wrote.

He covers the components of Gerber’s product, but determines that buying them separately is a more cost-efficient idea. That’s what being a practical prepper is all about, says 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.”
