What To Do If You Get Lost in the wild.

We have been talking about this a lot the past week with the Little Man. We want to go camping this summer and want him to know what to do if something happens , like getting lost. The number one thing that you need to reenforce is that you have to stay calm. If there are many hours before sunset than you can easily just follow the path that you had been on back to where you were , but if you can't that follow these simple rules:

S is for Stop -  Stop moving. Stay where you are so that others can find you soon. Try and make a shelter if you have too.

T is For Think - After you have calmed down, think about who knows where you are. What is around you? How much time before it gets dark? What is the weather like and do you need a shelter? What do you have on hand that can be used as tools? Think and stay calm. Since you are staying in one spot you will be found soon.

O is for Observe - Look around you and get aquainted to the area that you are in. Is there water nearby? This will make it much easier for you to stay calm. If you get your bearings and use what you have nearby.

P is for Plan - Plan what you need to do and in what order they need to be done. What is the first thing that you need to do and so on. Planning and keeping yourself busy will help to keep you calm until you are found also. Plan on some way to give a sign that you are where you are. Can you start a fire safely? Or use big rocks to make a marker for someone to see from above?

If you ever get lost you will be alright and be able to survive if you stay calm and prepare.

Beginners Guide to Raising Meat Rabbits & 10 Reason to Raise Rabbits!

Beginners Guide to Raising Meat Rabbits was a free kindle book when this post was written.

Raising rabbits for meat is one of the easiest ways to supply nutritious meat for your family. This book will teach you everything from choosing your breeding stock to butchering.

You may have been considering raising chickens, geese, ducks, goats, sheep or other small livestock for meat, but once you learn how easy it is to raise rabbits, you'll never consider another animal for a primary meat source.
  1. Rabbits have an extremely high reproduction rate. One healthy, mature doe can produce up to 1000% of her body weight every year. Owning just one female and one male can supply meat twice a week for a family of four.
  2. Rabbits need very little living space. Whether you're living in a condo or out in the country, you can always find space to raise a couple rabbits. No grazing is required and they're rarely classified as livestock which allows you to keep them virtually anywhere. How many apartment complexes would let you keep a chicken or goat in them?
  3. Rabbits are low maintenance. Check in on them every evening to feed, water and do quick health checks, clean their cages once a month and keep a simple breeding journal - that's all you need to do! Females take care of the young themselves and the only special tools you'll need are nesting boxes which you can even build yourself. No incubators or hand feeding required.
  4. Rabbits are virtually silent roommates. Aside from the mating shriek, rabbits are extremely quiet animals. They won't reveal your location to anyone, even if you're traveling with them. Who knows what a chicken, goose or duck is likely to attract, not to mention a rooster. If outdoor cages are well hidden and clean, neighbors may not even know they are there.
  5. A little rabbit feed goes a long way.  When bunnies are being weaned (6-8 weeks old), they are large enough for consumption. This allows you to skip giving most of the bunnies feed as you gradually cull the young, leaving only the adults to consume expensive rabbit feed.
  6. Rabbits are the perfect sized meal for a family of four. Rabbits are compact and usually butchered at "fryer size" (3-5 pounds), so you don't have to worry about storing or eating leftovers.
  7. Rabbit manure will make your garden love you. Rabbit manure is an excellent fertilizer for your garden that won't burn plants. Plus, if you vermicompost, your worms can be fed the droppings which will make them love you too.
  8. Rabbit meat is very high in protein and extremely low in fat and cholesterol. Very few other meats have nutritional values like rabbits, and none of them can be raised in your living room. Doctors have actually been known to prescribe rabbit meat diets to overweight patients.
  9. Rabbit fur will make an incredibly warm coat and is a great bartering item. On a cold winter's night, snuggling into a blanket made from rabbit pelts will keep your family warm long after the fire has gone out. You can also make hats or other accessories, and kids love getting a lucky rabbit's foot.
  10. Rabbits are relatively easy to butcher and clean. No one likes doing it but if you're going to eat them, they day will come eventually. Someone with experience can take a rabbit from cage to freezer in 15 minutes or less. No plucking is needed and there's very little cleanup.
Tiffany Savage is a suburban homesteader who has been living a more sustainable life for too many years to count. When she discovered how easy raising rabbits for meat was, she immediately wanted to share her knowledge with others. That's when she wrote the eBook Raising Rabbits to Survive!, a comprehensive eBook which gives even those who've never even raised a goldfish the courage to start on their own journey to freedom by raising rabbits.

April 15 Total Lunar Eclipse

                              Great map to show who will be able to see the Total Lunar Eclipse.

Four Blood Moons - Something Is About to Change

"...There will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars...Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near." Luke 21:25a, 28

It is rare that Scripture, science, and history align with each other, yet the last three series of Four Blood Moons have done exactly that. Are these the “signs” that God refers to in His Word? If they are, what do they mean? What is their prophetic significance?

In this riveting book, New York Times best-selling author, Pastor John Hagee, explores the supernatural connection of certain celestial events to biblical prophecy—and to the future of God’s chosen people and to the nations of the world.

Just as in biblical times, God is controlling the sun, the moon, and the stars to send our generation a signal that something big is about to happen. The question is: Are we watching and listening to His message?
John Hagee authored New York Times best seller "Jerusalem Countdown " that at this writing has sold over one million copies. He is a nondenominational evangelistic pastor who stands in the pulpit every Sunday at Cornerstone Church filling his twenty thousand member church with the latest news in the world and how it relates to what God has in store. He is the founder and leader of John Hagee Ministries and national chairman for Christians United for Israel. His message goes out to 249 countries via radio and TV.

Latest Contribution

Hagee's latest contribution to Biblical prophecy is called "Four Blood Moons: Something Is About to Change " that shows how history, science, and scripture are aligning with each other pointing to a coming time of great change on the earth.
Hagee brings into context the supernatural hookup of pointed celestial events to Biblical prophecy. He brings into relationship the future of God's chosen people and how it effects the other gentile nations of the world.

Clear Signs to Appear

He makes it clear that as in biblical times, God is the controlling factor of the sun, moon, and stars that will be sending the final generation a clear focused signal that something huge is about to transpire. The real question is will we watch for and listen to God's message and be able to discern his meaning when these signs occur.

Four Blood Moons and Eclipse

The title of his books tells of coming signs in the heavens in the spring and fall of 2014 & 2015 that just happen to fall on the Jewish Holy Days that also has a total eclipse in the middle separating the four. The significance of these signs is that they fall on the feast days and every time that they do they are linked to historical events in Israel, but what of the future?
