Some survival sites outside of  the US

Post here all info on non-US survival websites.
Where can you get freeze dried canned, MREs and other supplies in your country?
Dome builders? Other survival companies?
Please feel free to post your opinions on best places to purchase, and when is the time to purchase.

Some of the domes and so on might be better after the worst of the cataclysm is over. Having a ready made dome kit and the supplies stored underground would be a good idea.
Everyone will have to sort out what would hold up in the coming times. - Yowbarb

For example the military is learning how an 80 year old man in India has lived without food or water for 70 years. This is being verified. He has lived on breath technique alone. "If Jani has not eaten or drank anything in 70 years, then there is even more reason to start practicing pranayma (contolled breathing) daily. Here is an instructional clip:

As promised, I'm letting you know
there is a new article on my blog.

Rosebay Willowherb: Taking The Pith  http://paulkirtley.co.uk/2013/rosebay-willowherb-taking-the-pith/

The uses of rosebay willowherb -
also known as fireweed - are multiple.

From natural cordage to firelighting to
clothing to edible roots, shoots, leaves
and flowers as well as numerous
medicinal applications, rosebay
willowherb is one of the more useful
wilderness plants.

The pith of the plant can also be used
as food and is indeed one of the easiest
ways of obtaining food from it,
particularly when you are on the move.

To find out more, check out the article here.

I'd also be interested to know if you
have tried rosebay willowherb/fireweed
and what you think of it as a food resource. 

Let me and other readers know in the
comments below the article.

As always, I read every comment and I
reply personally.

Hope to hear from you soon.

All the best,

Paul

Barb,
 
If you ask a group of people to draw up a list of the equipment they think important to take with them on a winter journey or on a winter camping trip, particularly in the northern forest, many of them might state an axe for felling and processing dead standing wood for firewood. 

Some might also state a saw for sectioning this firewood into manageable lengths, particularly if they are using a stove in combination with a heated tent.

Fewer would mention a snow shovel. Yet, in my opinion, it is one of the most important pieces of kit for a winter journey.

I've just added a new article - with video - explaining why the snow shovel is important plus some tips on how to choose a good one and use it efficiently.

I realise everyone is not into winter camping but even so, this is useful background knowledge that could even help you choose a good shovel to keep in the back of your car during the winter months.

Choosing And Using A Snow Shovel For Winter Camping And Travel

................................................
Yowbarb Note:

A bivouac shelter is any of a variety of improvised camp sites such as those used in scouting and mountain climbing. It may often refer to sleeping in the open with a bivouac sack, but it may also refer to a shelter constructed of natural materials like a structure of branches to form frame may be utilized, which is then covered with leaves, ferns and similar for waterproofing and duff (leaf litter) for insulation. Today it is sometimes called bivy for short.

The word bivouac is French and ultimately derives from an 18th-century Swiss German usage of beiwacht (bei by, wacht watch or patrol).

Barb,
 
You don't need to look far for almost countless incident reports, news items and accounts of woe whereby ordinary folk have found themselves in difficulty in the great outdoors due to lack of skills and knowledge.

So, how do we make sure we have the attitude, skills, knowledge and equipment to see us through adversity?

Well, that's the subject of an article on my blog I'd like to draw your attention to:

A Framework For Preparing Yourself For A Survival Situation http://paulkirtley.co.uk/

I hope you find this useful and, as always, look forward to any comments.

Take care and stay safe,
Paul
