Modern Survival Tips

Modern Survival is a publication that encourages its readers to be prepared citizens who can self-sustain, particularly in the aftermath of a large-scale or grid-down disaster. Their philosophy is to help individuals learn how to be ruggedly self-reliant, rather than reliant on the government, emergency services, or their extended families, neighbors, and friends in the wake of an emergency situation. 

After a major disaster, emergency services and police protection are typically stretched extremely thin. Being prepared to survive after a disaster allows first responders to respond to those who need their help most. Survivalists seek to free up emergency services, resources, and assistance, effectively moving themselves to the back of the priority line because they have the skills to survive, and sometimes thrive, while others may not. 

Life is full of unknowns, and it doesn’t take events like a major natural disaster or man-made terror attack for survival skills to be useful. In addition to the worst-case scenarios most people imagine, there are many everyday survival situations that individuals and families run into, as well. From ice storms to getting lost in the woods, Modern Survival shares tips to help readers brush up on their survival skills. 

Modern Survival’s mission is to help people and families prepare to face the unknown, and come out on the other side. From wilderness survival tips to building a prepper pantry, this publication is dedicated to educating readers in the skills of our predecessors. They believe that modern society has effectively eliminated survival education, and they’re committed to bringing awareness to as many readers as possible. 

As one of the most useful survival resources on the web, Modern Survival provides weekly news, tips, resources, tactics, and even skill development courses. They aim to keep their readers informed, protected, healthy, and happy, no matter what life brings their way.

Honeymoon Ends in Explosive Tragedy

(ModernSurvival.org) – The horrors of war claim the lives of soldiers and civilians alike. When wars end, populations rejoice as the killing ends and peace returns. Over a century after the end of World War I (WWI), however, remnants of old battlefields are still claiming lives.

Norbert Varga and Lidiia Makarchuk were happily married last month. To celebrate their marriage, they decided to join friends and family in the Carpathian Mountains, Ukraine. Unfortunately, the location they decided to set up camp was the scene of the Brusilov Offensive in 1916.

Unbeknownst to the happy couple, the group had built a bonfire atop a buried bomb, left behind over a hundred years ago during WWI. As the partygoers sat around the blaze sipping tea and talking about how the newlyweds met, the bomb exploded.

The bride suffered severe burns across her hands, legs and face. Her brother and another man weren’t so lucky — they lost their lives while waiting over an hour for emergency services to arrive.

This isn’t the first time an unexploded bomb from a World War has caused trouble. In March, an 80-year-old German bomb was found during construction in Exeter, England. Authorities detonated the 2,204-pound bomb in a controlled blast after 2,600 homes nearby were evacuated.

For survivalists, this is another reminder that emergencies can strike in the most unexpected ways. For the newlyweds and their guests, a simple camping trip turned into a battle for survival.

While there may not be a plethora of buried bombs to worry about in the US, burns are still a very serious threat. For information on how to treat a burn in the wild while waiting for emergency services to arrive, take a look at our article here.
