With power outages crippling cities across the nation, the potential for a nasty solar flare, and geopolitical tensions, it might be time to revisit your long term power outage plan. This article explains why low-tech prepping is much more affordable and sustainable for those of us without extravagant budgets.

This might be stating the obvious, but in the event of an EMP, things will not be the same, no matter how great your generator is.

Aaron Dykes of Truthstream Media wrote an excellent article about the extreme likelihood of a catastrophic event that could take out our power grid:

This is the best all-around backpacking axe that I have yet seen. It splits and cross-cuts. It hammers.

Cold Steel 3V SRK Fixed 6-Inch Blade Knife

Description:

Survival & Rescue operations demand a versatile knife able to withstand the most extreme conditions. Simply put, the Cold Steel SRK (Survival Rescue Knife) was designed specifically with this in mind. A popular knife with Military and Tactical Law Enforcement Personnel, the SRK is the standard issue knife of the Navy SEALS for their BUDS – or Basic Underwater Demolition training – the SRK has proved its worth time and time again in the most demanding environments. Whatever the mission, we’re confident that the SRK is the knife for you!

Excellent survival knife, but if you want to use your knife only for hunting, then the Master Hunter is probably the best choice out there:

Cold Steel 36CC 3V Master Hunter Fixed Blade Knife ($99.80)

http://www.coldsteel.com/3v-master-hunter.html ($199.99)

If this really is a 3V SRK, then this is a bargain (that is hard to believe, but then the Master Hunter also looks incredibly cheap. Am I missing something?):

@Amazon.com: Cold Steel 3V SRK Fixed 6-Inch Blade Knife ($128.05)

http://www.coldsteel.com/3v-srk.html ($254.99)

Sadly, unlike the Gerber LMF II ($78.21), the 3V SRK is not equipped with a pointed buttcap that is made of stainless steel, but I still prefer the 3V SRK.
