Food Cache

Creating a food cache at  remote locations are vital to a good escape and evade plan. But first there are some important factors to look at.
First, location can you realistically get to it if there are control points in place?
Second, How many people do you need t supply and how long for.
Third, What can I use to burry my cache in (remember rodents will beet you to your own cache if they can get to it. Use a galvanized garbage can or a commercial steel drum are the best. remember to waterproof the daylight out of it inside and out and put all items in ziplock or sealed bags with moisture absorbers(you can use hand warmers yes, they are the same thing). also you will need to stealth your cache as best as possible.
Guardsmen will be checking areas up to 2-3 ft deep in your cache area throw some nails or metal scrap around your cache area. WHY? to fool them!!! If they pick up signals and they keep finding metal screws etc. they will give up eventually. In another post I will go over stealthiness technique to hide from both Metal and IR detections. Remember they also checking up to a 1400 foot radius of your Home/Property.

The Dangers of Psych Warfare

Psych Warfare can be painful physiologically but if your Central Nervous System is healthy and remain at optimal performance as much as possible it will be much harder for the enemy to win this battle because you will become ware and knowledgeable thus learning from their efforts to diminish your senses. We must think of Nutrition firstly. Simply because all our Main systems must be always or as much as possible functioning at optimal performances to battle the wars ahead. Yes, You heard me correct "WARS" the are physical wars and there are phycological wares otherwise known as tactics called PHYC. WARFARE. this is where fear is interjected in your everyday lifestyle making it easier for the enemy to manipulate you in doing what they want you t do even over what you want to do. They will confuse threaten and use scare tactics that would effect your daily lifestyles through many channels. Financial is one major channel without money. How would we pay our taxes or house loans. (you ever wonder why there are so many Govt. REVERSE MORTGAGES") if you default and cannot pay the loan up after the primary owner dies guess who gets the house and LAND? You guessed it correct the govt.
Some Nutritional herbs and products that would provide not on a healthy Central System but provide nourishment overall. Slippery Em Bark, Passion Flower, Chamomile, Lavender Bee Pollen, Be Propolis, Royal Jelly, Pure Raw honey. (Honey has an indefinite shelf life) Slipper Elm Bark.

Other nutritional food such as Yellow corn will provide the Main Systems with Vitamin A,K, B6, B12,  just to list a few.

Also we will get into Medical Supplementation's and strategies Did you ever think if you have a medical condition what would happen if your medication got discontinued! Ok then you would try an alternative right! but what if they all were discontinued maybe slated over a timeframe what happens to you?

Do you think stress or concern would arise  this is only the begining but if you had and alternate plan that made YOU the boss "INDEPENDENT' and of all raw materials need Then what? I'll tell you your stress would change to hope.

The vitality of Small Survival Kits

Small compact and pocket kits are great Survival kit options for a Bug Out situation or add it to your I.N.C.H. Setup. as a supplement you need something small and compact in case you have to fly out and become invisible in the woods for a few days. Camo techniques are even more vital now than ever! Practice and find a partner who is Rock solid mentally stable and go slow with the prepping and do not tell all you do to each other. train and or practice bug outs and bushcraft locally and short term until you build your skill sets up in all weather.

Making a herbal Tincture for your Kit

Here is the basics on making your own herbal tinctures and begin to build a cache for your herbal survival kit, Slippery Elm Bark, Garlic, Cayenne,Licorice, Echinacea,etc

Putting together an I.N.C.H. Bag &Training

Building your I.N.C.H. bag Remember that if you are building this type of bags you are not just bugging out but Intending Never to Come Home. later on we will also go over both the Bug-out Bag and Good(get out of dodge) bags and building them all with a herbal survival kit. Main List: Now we must think Food,Water, Medicine, personal hygiene, Medicine, Shelter Fire Warmth. 


So Why?.....
First read about the herbal survivalist that will explain what I am about to say.

1. Food, Water, 2. Medicine, 
3. "Personal Hygiene Products"

Look at this list backwards if there is a lack of personal hygiene products what will happen? lack of personal hygiene = "Bacteria(s) 2. Bacteria(s) = illness' which need medicine to heal or repair or eliminate. 3. Illness' need medicine but also nutritional supplementation(s).  In order to provide true nutrition to ALL our main systems we need Good Food and a Pure Water Soure to maintain overall hydration health for this to gets applied to all our main systemsRemoving one element from the necessary elements to survive will effect all the main systems of the human body; Respiratory, Circulatory, Central Nervous System as del as the skeletal and muscular systems.

Secondly, they must work together and not try to delegate all survival tasks and resources to themselves but with realistic and reliable individuals also remember we should also take glare of the disabled and the elderly regardlessly. and above all we MUST put GOD FIRST and include him in all we do plan and learn. Go to the post Hope Herbs and the graces of God and after you read it watch the short training video at the end and you will be amazed what you just learned and pass it around.
