While we can't speak for everyone, our in-house expert Joe breaks down the details so you can decide whether an at-home freeze drier is right for you.

It’s camping season! If you’re anything like us, you’re looking forward to nighttime skies filled with stars, roaring fires with the smell of roasting marshmallows, and of course, sleeping outdoors. If you are headed out with a tent and sleeping bag ready for an adventure, you’ll need to know a couple of things about WHERE to pitch that tent, because we all know, not every camping spot is created equal.
We call them the5W’sof campsite selection and they are some great wisdom for campers long before I ever dropped a ground cloth.
If you want to survive a bear attack, you’ll need a level head and nerves of steel. Grizzly bear attacks are on the rise in North America, and they’re expected to increase further as we keep expanding into their territory. Now more than ever, it’s important to know exactly what to do when a hike in the woods turns into a death match with a grizzly.
If you get stranded in the wilderness, you may not have access to your stockpile of food. The good thing is, when you are desperate for some much-needed calories, there are some wild options that you can find almost anywhere to eat that you may have overlooked. Our friends at the National Self-Reliance Initiative put together a list of the 7 most common things:
Paracord is both lightweight and strong. It weighs less and takes up less room than heavy-duty ropes, and can be woven together to create a stronger rope that is rot proof and sturdy. When the inner cords are taken apart, its uses multiply. Paracord has a bearing weight of 550 pounds. It was designed to stretch under a load and will stretch over time. There are many uses for this “survival rope,” but here are the ten most practical ways to use your paracord in the wilderness.
We recently added Freeze-dried Pomegranate Yogurt Bites to our collection of delicious food you will love to eat. Out of all the fruit choices in the world, why did we choose Pomegranate? The answer is very simple. It is one of the world's healthiest superfruits because of the vast health benefits that have been linked to it.
If you consistently plan the meals for your family, you likely already have an idea of what a well-balanced refrigerator and pantry should look like. However, when you are building an emergency food supply, it can feel a little like trodding on foreign territory even though picking food supplies for a well-balanced diet for your household normally comes as second nature.
When emergency situations strike, having enough food to sustain the household is one of the most valuable ways to ensure you and your family can survive. The United States Civil Defense even recommends that storing enough food and water to adequately sustain your family for at least two weeks is important.
