My mother generously wants to take her grandchildren to Disneyland for a couple days. So I will be staying there...essentially trapped on the premises for two days and nights with my sister, daughter, niece and nephew. The last time I was there,... (more)
Are there any preppers/survivalists on this site? How does being Paleo affect your bug out bags and food storage? Do you plan to try to remain Paleo when SHTF?
I'm very interested in hunting, but I have no experience at all! Who here hunts? Is it difficult? Does it pay off? Where do you hunt? Cuz I wanna look like these guys : In other words, just tell me about your experiences with hunting! (more)
What is your wound treatment? Anything from a small cut to massive gash. Do you use topical triple-antibiotics or more natural, even paleo, treatments? I normally let small wounds heal themselves, but thats risky with larger wounds. Even the... (more)
I read somewhere and would love to give credit, but I'm not sure where I read it. The tropical is personal addition however. I won't recreate this theory as eloquently but the general premise is: in the spring/summer meat was plentiful, we hunted... (more)
So i've seen this list on the internet of the top ten foods to store long term. It was all crappy food like wheat, rice and beans. Pretty much anti Paleo. After a long time of thinking I think I came up with a paleo version of the list. it's as... (more)
Are there any shows you watch that embody (or at least close enough) Paleo ideals/lifestyle? I personally like a lot of the survivalist shows found on the Discovery or Travel channels, like Dual Survival, Man vs. Wild, Les Stroud's Survivorman,... (more)

I was watching Cinderella man yesterday depicting the economic crisis in the 30s and the documentary The Corporation this evening about the damage that large corporations do to our planet, and all along I had this idea in the back of my mind of... (more)

I am interested in preserving meats. Pemmican and Jerky are fine short term, but I'm looking for long term, no refrigeration type preservation. Has anyone canned meat without a pressure cooker? Does anyone have any pickling recipes that don't make... (more)
Also, can't forget confit. The latest WAPF newsletter had a letter where someone described how people in Greece used to preserve meat in fat with salt. "Sealed and stored in a cool place, confit can last for several months." If I were storing it... (more)
Is the paleo lifestyle compatible with a survivalist outlook. How did cavemen prepare for doughts and famines? Did the high time preference manifest in their diet also carry over to a lack of preparation for hard times? How can modern humans... (more)
What are your favorite resources for learning how to live off the land in the wilderness, trapping, hunting, safe foraging, shelter... Modern caveman camping
Paleo is optimized for reproductive success/survival Successful/optimalreproductive survival does not equal or entail health or health span This is NOT about longevity, --a red herring in the present context. Paleo may give you ideas, but given... (more)
