Disaster preparedness is no longer something that should solely be the concern of someone living on the coast who could be at risk of hurricanes or someone in the Midwest who has to live under constant fear of tornadoes. <br /><br />Rather, preparedness needs to account for all kinds of different disasters, including ones that are manmade such as an economic collapse, power grid down, or a nuclear power plant accident. A disaster can be something that’s only untimely and inconvenient, but it can also be something that is destructive and life threatening. <br /><br />Regardless of the type of disaster you expect to face or will face, when it is does strike you should only have one goal in mind: your family’s survival. The good news for you is there are preparedness steps that you can take to minimize the effect a disaster has on your family and increase your chances of survival, and following those steps is what this book is about. <br /><br />Why should you bother to prepare for a disaster? The reason why is because the world is simply not as safe as you would want it to be or even believe it might be. On the contrary, we live in a chaotic and unpredictable world where literally anything can happen. <br /><br />When disaster does strike, it does so quickly and when you least it expect it. It could force you to bug in at your home to outlast the chaos going on outside, or it could force you to evacuate your home entirely and hit it out on the open road. <br /><br />In an instant, all of the luxuries and services that you are used to such as running water, food, power and electricity, gas, and communications could become cut off and remain cut off for a long time. <br /><br />Ask yourself an honest question: in the event of a large scale and long term disaster where the world as you know it has suddenly changed in the blink of an eye, would you be able to guarantee your family’s safety? <br /><br />Even if you answer with ‘no,’ the good news for you is that by working together as a team in advance of the disaster, the chances of survival for you and your family skyrocket dramatically.<br /><br />In this book, I’m going to walk you through a series of seven critical steps that you must follow in order to make your family more prepared for whatever disaster comes your way. <br /><br />These steps are:<br /><br />-Getting your spouse or partner onboard with prepping <br />-Teaching your children about survival and disaster preparedness<br />-Building a complete bug out bag for each of your children <br />-Stockpiling enough supplies to sustain your family over the long term<br />-Bugging in with your family at home in the midst of a crisis <br />-Writing an effective evacuation plan with your family to prepare you for the possibility of abandoning your home<br />-Bugging out with your family should you indeed be forced to abandon your home and possessions <br /><br />Knowing what you need to do in a disaster situation and instructing your family on what to do is a massive responsibility that you have as a parent, and it will ensure that all of you remain prepared and protected when a massive catastrophe happens. <br />

Ask yourself a serious question: have you ever thought, as part of your disaster preparedness plans, about stashing away some valuable survival items in a remote location that you can then access later when the need arises?<br /><br />This is exactly what a survival cache is: a simple hiding place of valuables that you will come back to later to retrieve. For example, should you ever need to quickly bug out from your home in the event of a large scale disaster but can’t bring any survival items with you, you could retrieve your cache to access those items instead. <br /><br />Contrary to what many people think, survival caches are not just for preppers and survivalists. Many everyday people have hidden caches containing food and basic survival items as well, and a few of the victims of natural disasters such as Hurricane Katrina were able to show just how useful it was to have supplies stored away at strategic locations when they were forced to evacuate their homes.<br /><br />Many outdoorsmen (and women) will bury supplies at a cabin, campsite, or hunting location in a remote area to access at a later date as well. Since many of these remote places can be vulnerable to landslides, floods, or heavy rain and snowfall, having a cache of items available for you to access could mean the difference between life and death. <br /><br />In essence, the wisdom behind the survival cache is that it allows you to resupply yourself should you need to evacuate your property and community in the event of a catastrophe. <br /><br />That being said, there is still far more to the survival cache than just filling up a box with some critical survival items and burying it in a remote location without thinking twice about it. <br /><br />Just the opposite, a survival cache requires careful thought in terms of determining why you want to build it, the items that you want to put in it, how you will build it, where you will hide it and retrieve it, and so on. <br /><br />Fortunately, this book is going to outline a very simple yet effective eight step process for building and hiding your very own survival cache (or caches). The specific questions that these steps are going to answer for you include the following:<br /><br />-Why should you build a survival cache?<br />-Which exact items should you store in your cache?<br />-What kind of container should you use for your cache?<br />-How can you modify your container so it will keep your stored items safe from the outside elements such as moisture and humidity?<br />-Where are some good locations for hiding your cache?<br />-How can you hide your cache so you know no one else will find it (either accidentally or purposefully)?<br />-How should you go about retrieving your cache?<br />-What are some additional tips that you can follow to ensure you are successful?<br /><br />Building and hiding a survival cache truly is a more in-depth topic than most people realize, but it is my hope that this book will break things down for you by walking you through each of the steps that you need to follow. <br />

<b>This book will give you the necessary skills to survive in the wild.</b><br />Today, the term "accommodation" means the direction in which all sides of the horizon and its location relative to surrounding features and local features. Orientation when traveling in an unfamiliar area is to determine the distances and maintaining the desired direction of the route.<br />For successful and accurate orientation in any point of the earth needs a map or plan of the area, compass or portable GPS devices and, of course, the ability to use it all. In the absence of data means you can spend an APB out to local characteristics or with the help of improvised means, although in this case, you need to remember that readings will be very conditional. <br />
