Making Nature Home: Four Home Security Ideas for Camping

October 15, 2013 Riverwalker 0

When packing for camping, many would prefer to think about rations, campground supplies, and tent poles than ways that we might be able to defend ourselves. While it’s true that crime rates at campgrounds are significantly lower than in the city, a reduced likelihood is not very solid grounds to forget the importance of your group’s safety. When camping, it’s wise to heed home security measures like you would if you were home if you want to create a safe environment.

While advanced monitoring and alarm systems clearly aren’t feasible in most outdoors situations, taking some basic principles of home security systems and applying them on your next camping outing can increase your chances of deterring crime and give your campers a greater peace of mind. However, I’d like to make one reservation; whereas crimes in residential properties occur more often in well-traveled areas, the ideal camping grounds are more popular areas where there is a moderate presence of other campers. When it comes to the wilderness, isolation is a key ingredient for disaster.

Without further ado, here are just three ways that we can boost our security while camping to make sure that keep everyone in our party safe, no matter where we are:

1. Maintain a secure presence

The first aspect to keep in mind is adequate lighting, especially during night. Some might choose to avoid light to gain security through stealth, but this is a far greater disadvantage when potential predators lurk. It isn’t advisable to leave a campfire unattended while sleeping, so the better option of maintaining some light at all times is to either use a lantern or a few floodlights with a moderately sized generator. Solar panels are a natural fit if your camping plans go on for longer than your generator can manage.

2. Keep watch

One of the best deterrents in reducing the rates of crime in suburban and urban areas is a solid neighborhood watch. In fact, the FBI’s statistics project that these programs have an efficiency of up to 43%. Likewise, keeping a sense of watch over your campgrounds can make a great difference in keeping criminals away. This doesn’t necessarily entail staying up and taking turns maintaining post; rather, simply being aware of sights and sounds of your environment and having a protocol to respond to emergency situations can save the day.

I always take a whistle when I go camping, which I use for an “alarm” in case I detect something suspicious. Others might use lights, signals, or even walkie-talkies to maintain communications about potential dangers.

3. Keep a tight ship

When you buy a new television, you wouldn’t simply leave the box next to your trash can; it would be a blatant advertisement to crooks that you have a shiny new HDTV for the taking. Similarly, it’s always wise (and courteous!) to pick up after yourself when camping. Leaving garbage around can attract potentially dangerous wildlife, pose an environmental hazard to your group or other campers, and leave a trail that criminals could use to determine your resources and tail your group.

When it comes to demonstrating your resources, whether you’re at home or outside, the best policy is discretion.

4. Have a backup plan for worst case situations

No matter how thorough you are in establishing a safe campgrounds and maintaining safe practices, it’s impossible to guarantee that someone (or a wild animal) won’t target you or others with you while camping. Just as you might keep a firearm at home in the case of a home invasion, it’s a good idea to carry some kind of firearm to defend your camp from criminals or dangerous wildlife should your camp fail to deter a dangerous element.

While it’s always preferable to make sure you never have to use it in the first place, keeping a firearm with you is a valuable last resort in keeping the peace while camping.

3 Things to Know When Storing Water

May 15, 2013 Riverwalker 0




There are things people routinely store: clothes, food, exercise equipment, furniture, antique photographs, etc.

But water? Hmmm, an interesting concept. Believe it or not, the average person needs to drink at least one gallon of water per day. And that doesn’t include water for important tasks such as bathing or cooking.

So, when an emergency arises, it stands to reason that clean water is one of the most precious commodities around.

Water storage really is a vital part of any disaster preparedness process. But what’s the best way to go about it? Here are three things you must know when storing water:

1.  Choose the right container

If you don’t know what to look for in a container, you’ll be sunk before you even start trying to store water. Key container attributes include:

·                                 Size — Strive for a container that holds 14 gallons per family member.

·                                 UV yes, BPA no — UV coating keeps light out of your water, preventing contaminant growth. And you won’t want your unit to have BPA in the material, because this chemical can seep into the water.

2.   Clean the container

Once you have a water storage container, make sure it’s sufficiently clean before filling it up. Add a teaspoon of unscented household bleach to 1 quart of water, then let it sit for 30 seconds before pouring out the solution. Your container is now clean and ready to store water.

3.   Change it or preserve it

You should only keep your stored water for about six months before swapping it out for fresh stuff. But if that sounds like too much of a hassle, consider using a liquid preserver to boost your water’s shelf life up to several years. You can also purchase water filters or a water filtration device.

If a natural disaster occurs, the absolute last thing you can afford to be without is clean water. Considering how good people are at storing things, why not put this skill to good use for your family and invest in water storage?

5 Essentials for Your 72 Hour Kit

April 3, 2013 Riverwalker 0

5 Essentials for Your 72 Hour Survival Kit

Catastrophes always strike without warning. When they do, they hinder the services of local government agencies and community emergency crews. Their equipment, communications, buildings, and personnel will all be affected, making them basically immobile. If this happens, there will be no one to respond to your emergency calls in a timely fashion. This could be a very overwhelming situation for you, unless you’re prepared.

5 Essentials Every Prepper’s 72 Hour Kit Must Have

Experts on emergency preparedness warn that everyone should be prepared for self-sufficient survival for no less than three days after a catastrophe. That means that you need to have the emergency supplies you need to survive for 72 hours. Many recommend that you keep a 72 hour kit in your home, your office and your car. Here are five basic essentials that every prepper should have in a 72 hour survival kit:

1) 3-Day Supply of Water

·         A 1-day supply is 1 gallon of water, per day = 3 gallons for one person for 3 days

·         The human body can only go only so many days without water before suffering from dehydration. During major emergencies, local water services may become contaminated, or simply may not be working at all. It’s vital to your survival that you have enough clean drinking water to last until these local services are restored.

·         Experts recommend such a large amount of water per day because you’ll also need clean water for more than just drinking. Your water supply will be there when you need to bathes, wash dishes or clothes, brush your teeth, and other hygienic purposes.

2) Food Storage Supply for 3 Days

·         Should contain at least 9 meals per person (3 meals per day)

·         Being prepared with emergency food storage will really help to ease your stress during a crisis situation. Remember that your local stores will have suffered the crisis with you. So, they will probably be closed, along with all your other local businesses. Also, credit card processors and ATM machines may also be down. That means you’ll have no way of going out to buy food during your emergency situation. Be sure you have enough food stored to feed yourself until things get back to normal.

·         Your food storage should be made up of mostly non-perishable foods. These types of products have longer shelf lives than fresh or frozen foods. That way, when you it’s time to eat your emergency food, they’re still good for consumption. For good ideas for your 72 hour food storage plan, look into buying canned food, dehydrated food and/or freeze-dried food.

3) Basic First Aid Kit

The following items are recommended by the US Department of Health and Human Services to be included in your basic first aid kit:

·         Antibiotic Ointment

·         Hydrogen Peroxide

·         Antiseptic Wipes

·         Gauze and Adhesive Tape

·         Safety Pins

·         Tweezers

·         Instant-activating cold packs (disposable)

·         Sharp Scissors – should have rounded tips

·         Bandages – assorted shapes and sizes

4) Battery-Powered Flashlight

Electrical services will probably be non-operational. So, be sure that your flashlight is battery-operated and pack extra batteries.

5) Battery-Operated Radio

·         There will probably be no power in your local area after the disaster strikes. Make sure your radio is battery-powered and be sure you have extra batteries for your radio.

·         During a man-made or natural disaster, television services may be out. The radio will be your only form of communication with the outside world. You’ll need your radio to stay tuned for important emergency updates like more upcoming disasters, emergency shelters, evacuations, etc…

RW Attends the Ready, Set, Prep Summit in Irving, Texas

March 22, 2013 Riverwalker 0
I recently had a chance to attend The Ready, Set, Prep Summit in Irving, Texas on March 20-21, 2013which was hosted by Food Insurance™. I had a chance to network with a number of people in the preparedness community from around the country. I also had the chance to network with and meet a number of people whom I knew only by their online presence.  It was a very informative preparedness summit.

Here’s the list of attendees at the Summit:

There were a number of very informative speakers with several new ideas for being prepared that I will cover in later posts on TPN or on my main site at Stealth Survival. You may want to check out the sites of the others in attendance. They all have valuable information that will help you be better prepared.


The Summit ended with an appearance by the attendees on the Glen Beck Show as part of his live studio audience. I also like to give a big Texas thanks to our host Food Insurance™.
