▶ Home #Prepping System Reorganization by TheUrbanPrepper


In early 2013, I posted a video titled “Home Prepping System”, which outlined my organization strategy and design for all of the prepping items within my home. Over time, things began to stall out with this project due to the mammoth size of it and the lack of a refined organization system. I was recently inspired by YouTubers and “Home Organization Queen”, DoItOnADime, who has a channel focused on budget friendly and clever home organization tips.

MRE Reviews: Menu No.2 Southwest Beef in Black Bean Sauce from XMRE


This is not ASMR, but more of something I’ve been wanting to do for a while now. I ordered an MRE online due to seeing dudes like gshultz9 and Kiwi Dude. They all looked so good so I wanted to try it out in front of a camera. Hopefully the audio isn’t too crazy. Excuse the humming that is my refridgerator. I hope this is interesting!

If you have not seen or heard of MRE’s (Meal Ready to Eat) by now, I have to wonder where you have been. MRE’s are a military staple that has naturally bled over into the preparedness market because of their long storage life and simplicity. For the uninitiated, MRE’s are what our soldiers eat when they are away from base. MRE’s come from a long history of military food options that….

Eric Cline | 1177 BC: The Year Civilization Collapsed

1177 BC: The Year Civilization Collapsed

February 25, 2015

Dr. Eric H. Cline

Professor of Classics and Anthropology

Chair of the Department of Classical and Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations

Director of the Capitol Archaeological Institute at The George Washington University, in Washington D.C.

For more than three hundred years during the Late Bronze Age, from about 1500 BC to 1200 BC, the Mediterranean region played host to a complex international world in which Egyptians, Mycenaeans, Minoans, Hittites, Assyrians, Babylonians, Cypriots, and Canaanites all interacted, creating a cosmopolitan and globalized world-system such as has only rarely been seen before the current day. It may have been this very internationalism that contributed to the apocalyptic disaster that ended the Bronze Age. When the end came, as it did after centuries of cultural and technological evolution, the civilized and international world of the Mediterranean regions came to a dramatic halt in a vast area stretching from Greece and Italy in the west to Egypt, Canaan, and Mesopotamia in the east. Large empires and small kingdoms, that had taken centuries to evolve, collapsed rapidly. With their end came the world’s first recorded Dark Ages. It was not until centuries later that a new cultural renaissance emerged in Greece and the other affected areas, setting the stage for the evolution of Western society as we know it today. Blame for the end of the Late Bronze Age is usually laid squarely at the feet of the so-called Sea Peoples, known to us from the records of the Egyptian pharaohs Merneptah and Ramses III. However, as was the case with the fall of the Roman Empire, the end of the Bronze Age empires in this region was not the result of a single invasion, but of multiple causes. The Sea Peoples may well have been responsible for some of the destruction that occurred at the end of the Late Bronze Age, but it is much more likely that a concatenation of events, both human and natural — including earthquake storms, droughts, rebellions, and systems collapse — coalesced to create a “perfect storm” that brought the age to an end.

 Mountain House and Backpackers Pantry food comparison.
I cooked both of them following the directions exactly to that last 1/4 cup.
Poured them from the bag into bowls and this is the result.

I did taste both of them and have decided which one I will be buying from now on

It also manufactures all of its own food and sells it to some of those food storage resellers in Utah.via AlpineAire Foods Reviews | Food Storage Reviewer.
