Welcome to Survivally.com

People have become dependent on society for survival. Virtually everyone counts on others to provide them with protection, food, water and shelter.

All of this can be snatched away in an instant.

Worse yet, it almost certainly will be.

The Coming Storm

In something as simple as a blackout, your supply of fresh water can be cut off.

In an economic crisis, something the U.S. continues to teeter on the edge of, blackouts could be only one of your problems. You might be unable to buy enough food to feed your family or enough fuel to heat your home. Even the protection offered by emergency services could disappear if rioting and looting began.

Then there are natural disasters.

Many people live knowingly in the path of danger, but do nothing to prepare for it. The people of New Orleans counted on the government for protection during Hurricane Katrina. If anything good came out of the horrific tragedy that followed, it’s the lesson that, even today, we must look to ourselves if we want to survive.

Others believe that natural disasters can’t touch them.

The peaceful inland state of Vermont long seemed like one of the safest places in the world. Yet when Hurricane Sandy appeared, it roared across hundreds of miles of land and into the Green Mountains, crushing highways, destroying bridges and flooding rivers until hills became islands. People who could normally drive to a grocery store in 10 minutes were cut off from food, clean water and electricity for days.

There’s one more lesson that I’m sure I don’t need to remind you of. Since 2001, Americans have known that even the most powerful military in the world can’t always protect them from attack.

What This Means for You and Your Family

Most people go about their lives with the expectation that they will always be able to buy food, get clean water by turning a faucet and receive almost instantaneous help if they call 911.

When the day comes that they can’t do any of that, they won’t know what to do. They won’t have a thing to eat. When the looters come, they won’t be able to protect themselves or their property.

Many of these people won’t survive a prolonged disaster. Many of those who do will lose relatives, friends … spouses … children.

Will you make it through? Will your family?

You’re Not as Ready as You Think

You might think you could handle anything from a destructive storm to a zombie apocalypse because you have a few basic survival skills. Before you rest on your laurels, though, ask yourself these questions:

  • You’ve taken a few karate classes. Could you actually defend yourself if a man twice your size came at you with a baseball bat?
  • You can run a mile. Can you do that with all of your survival gear on your back?
  • You know how to fish. Will that make a difference when sporting goods stores are stripped bare and fisheries stop stocking the rivers and ponds every year?
  • You own a gun. Can you hit a moving target with it? Do you know how to maintain and repair it?
  • You have enough food to last your family for six months. What will you do if the grocery stores stay closed for nine?
  • What if civilization gets shut down permanently?

Preparing for all of these things is an enormous undertaking. It takes time, money, research and effort—but it’s worth it to ensure your family’s safety.

This is where we come in.

Prepping Intelligently

Survivally is here to help you prepare for any disaster as cheaply, quickly, easily and effectively as possible. Disaster could strike tomorrow. Our goal is to help you make the most of the time and resources you have available today.

If you follow the advice presented on this site, you’ll be ready for just about anything. From building up the perfect stockpile to defending yourself to rebuilding after a disaster, we cover it all.

There are only two things you need to do now.

Firstly, you need to start researching. Read our articles and watch the videos we link to. Check out other survival sites and resources as well.

Secondly, and more importantly, you must act. Don’t let a single day slip by without doing something real to prepare.

Acting means more than sitting at your computer or talking about your plans (and you should never talk about your plans). It means actually buying new supplies or instructions, practicing a survival skill or setting up a prep such as home defenses, an energy source or a chicken coop. As soon as you know what you need to do, do it!

Disaster isn’t going to wait until you’re ready. Start prepping now.
