If you’ve visited the site lately, you may have noticed a new NavBar Button

labeled: Survival Simplified!

We have long been interested in and recommend for everyone exploration of a

plan to get you and your loved ones through any type of disaster; whether

man-made or natural-occurring. In preparation for this section, we have been

doing extensive internet research, saving magazine articles and acquiring and

testing various survival supplies and gear for years.

which includes just about everything we feel needs to be discussed and

recommended. So rather than put up our own Survival section, we proudly

recommend you visit their new website via our link:
