If you have never been camping, then you probably do not know what people mean when they talk about the camping world. It is a world filled with friends and good times. It is something that you have to do to experience the fun and join the millions of people who are part of the camping world. They are every day people who travel around from campground to campground meeting friends and enjoying the beauty that surrounds them. There is no better way of life for many. They usually travel with pop up campers, RV’s, truck campers, or even fifth wheels.
The World Of Camping
The camping world is as big or as small as you would like it to be. You can travel to your local campgrounds or travel to other states for camping, but it all comes down to one thing, you are a part of the camping world. You breath the fresh air, you eat around an open fire, you socialize around fires and you sleep in a camper or a tent. For the most part, your best friend is tin foil. This is common with most campers. They use tin foil for just about everything. The more you use, the better you are at camping.
Tin foil in the camping world is a necessity that campers cannot be without for even one day. It is like duct tape is to a household, but only tin foil is needed more. Tin foil can be used to make Girl Scout potatoes, cook bacon, make scrambled eggs on a fire, wrap leftovers in and in some cases it is used to place around the campground to ward off wild animals. The camping world would be lost without tin foil.
The Camping World And Computers
Camping has become so popular that many people choose to work on the road. Almost all campgrounds now have Internet as well as wireless capabilities. This allows people to travel and work online making a living to pay for the expenses of camping, which are very cheap. The most expensive part of traveling around the country camping is the gas. Your rent is cheap as well as your food bills. You have no utilities, only a cell phone bill, satellite TV bill and the Internet bill. The camping world sounds exciting, but now you can do it and work as well doing things you like.

There are many things going on in our country right now that could possibly lead to food shortages within the next few years. We need to start preparing ourselves for the worst and hope for the best!
The CEO of the largest food bank in America has suggested that planned cuts in food stamp benefits set to take effect on Friday could spark riots.
Margarette Purvis, the president and CEO of the Food Bank for New York City, told Salon.com that the expiration of stimulus funds, which will see the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program reduced by $5 billion dollars, will have an “immediate impact” and represent a recipe for civil unrest.
“If you look across the world, riots always begin typically the same way: when people cannot afford to eat food,” said Purvis, adding that families face the “daunting” prospect of losing a whole week’s worth of food every month.
The nationwide cut will take 76 million meals off the table of poverty-stricken New Yorkers alone, equating to about 16 meals a month for a family of three. The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities has labeled the cut to the SNAP program “unprecedented” in “depth and breadth.”
As we previously highlighted, even the mainstream media is invoking the threat of riots that could ensue as a result of the food stamp cut, with Fox News’ Neil Cavuto linking the issue to the Department of Homeland Security’s recent $80 million dollar outlay on armed guards to protect government buildings in upstate New York.
“November 1st could be a very very iffy kind of a day….this could be all hell breaks loose day,” warned Cavuto.
His concerns are not without foundation given that a glitch in the system which temporarily halted EBT purchases for just a few hours earlier this month led to looting and mini-riots at several Walmart stores.
Reacting to the downtime, food stamp recipients warned that if the glitch was to re-occur it would lead to Rodney King-style riots, a reference to the 1992 L.A. riots which resulted in 53 deaths, 2,000 injuries and over $1 billion dollars in property damages.

It would appear the price of the GoFood product appears considerably more expensive, and it’s true. Like buying a bottle of wine, not all food is created equal. Boones Farm wine and a 2008 Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon are both made from grapes, right? But, there’s a big difference in quality. I believe it’s a pretty established fact you will always pay more for higher quality, and the lower quality cheap food is a major component in the lack of good health. And that’s the big difference here, in my opinion. Look at the ingredients… GoFoods is gluten free, no added preservatives, no hydrogenated oils, no GMO, and some pretty healthy things to boot.
I personally like the GoFoods Au Gratin Potatoes, especially because it supports my effort to eat gluten free and reduce the amount of additives and preservatives in my diet. The GoFoods product also contains more Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Iron. Seems to me a bonus is the higher RDA of calcium which has been shown to have allot of health benefits such as help in preventing a calcium deficiency that can result in something like 147 different diseases (Osteoporosis, arthritis, osteo arthritis, sciatica, lumbago, rheumatism, high blood pressure, Gingivitis, Kidney stones/bone spurs/heel spurs/calcium deposits, Muscle Cramps/twitches, PMS, and more.

Fortunately, buying a camp stove is a relative simple task that is not at all like buying a new car or even a home where you need to search high and low and think of every option before settling for the right option. Of course, buying a camp stove is also not as simple as just walking into a camping retail store and picking up the first stove that you lay your eyes upon. It is just that you will need to spend a few days or perhaps even a month in trying to figure which particular type of camp stove is best suited for your camping needs and for your pocket.
Look For The Right Size And Correct Weight
The first important consideration in picking the right camp stove is to look at its weight and size and to also keep in mind the fact that traveling light is one of the main prerequisites to enjoying a safe and enjoyable camping trip. Too much weight on your shoulders will take away the joy of camping and it can also lead to a back sprain and extra fatigue.
Next, you should consider the right size of camp stove to suit the weight. A very bulky stove can prove to be a hindrance to free movement that is essential to enjoying your camping as the extra weight and load will make it harder to negotiate the trails on which you will be traveling by foot. It is therefore a good idea to pick a camp stove that is of the right size and which is more compact and even picking a stove that can be folded down is another good option.
Finally, you need to consider the price of the camp stove which is of course another very important consideration. In these days when every dollar needs to go a little further you need to be sure that you are not overspending on your camp stove. This means that you must do comparison shopping so that you know different prices for similar types of stoves and then you can choose a stove that is ideally priced and which also is not too big or too bulky.
It is worth checking out the Coleman camping stove because it does has a lot to offer. For example, there are different models that come with a single, double, trip and even six burners and which also allow you to use different fuels as well.
As the world continues to spiral into a financial abyss, more people are waking up to the importance of preparing both spiritually as well as physically. When difficult times fall upon the world, Christians who are prepared can be in a place to offer hope.
Certainly, the most important thing is to have your heart right with God and to have placed your trust in Jesus Christ. Once your heart is right, then it becomes your obligation to provide help to others in need.
The parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:30-37) provides clear instruction that believers are to provide help to their neighbor.
The life of Joseph also provides an example of how God can use His people to help others overcome difficulties (Genesis 41).
Solomon suggests we look to the ant (Prov. 6:6-11) who gathers food and provides nourishment when it’s needed. It is those who do not learn from the ant (the sleeping sluggard) who will suffer poverty and want.
The mission of GoFoods Global is to help people act on these intuitive promptings and feed their freedoms by providing a vehicle for financial prosperity and helping others overcome their greatest dependency, food. As a GoFoods customer, you can break the food dependency as you store up food for your family. As a GoFoods IBO, you can also help others break their food dependencies by providing important storable food supplies for many others.
Besides sharing the saving grace of Jesus Christ, serving, saving, and sharing GoFoods Global is perhaps the most noble and relevant activity Christians could be doing in today’s unpredictable world.
I am amazed that despite the evidence to the contrary, so many people still believe they are being protected by a government that has their best interests in mind. While that may have once been true and I’m sure many of those employed by these government agencies believe they are doing the public good, the fact is they have been compartmentalized and do not comprehend the bigger picture.
In today’s culture, these government agencies have been infiltrated by multinational corporations that dictate public policy. It is not the public good that these agencies represent, rather it is the corporate profits that must be protected at all costs.
The following article by Mike Adams at Natural News is another expose of this kind of government corruption.
FDA deliberately deceiving Americans over arsenic in rice, chicken and other foods
There is arsenic in rice, and it’s generally higher in brown rice than in white rice. Consumer Reports tested 223 samples of rice products in 2012 and found significant levels of arsenic in most of them, including inorganic arsenic (the really toxic kind).
As Consumer Reports found, it’s not unusual to see arsenic at levels of 200 ppb or more in rice-based baby cereals. Click here for the complete test results.
The release of this information freaked out the U.S. rice industry, resulting in enormous pressure being put on the FDA to try to assuage fears that rice products were contaminated with arsenic (which they are).
So the FDA, always working in the interests of food corporations rather than the public, issued a statement saying that yes, there was arsenic in rice, but no, it didn’t pose any “short-term” health risks.
Well, we already knew that. Otherwise people would be dropping dead from eating rice. But what the FDA totally glossed over was the long-term health risks from chronic exposure to arsenic.
That’s where our real concerns are found, and that’s the issue that the FDA completely ignored. The FDA’s exact language on this is, “agency scientists determined that the amount of detectable arsenic is too low in the rice and rice product samples to cause any immediate or short-term adverse health effects.”
Yeah, goofballs. We already knew that.
FDA cover-up blatant
FDA’s Reassurance On Arsenic In Rice Not So Reassuring, wrote Rachel Zimmerman of Boston’s NPR station WBUR. “When I read the updated FDA materials… it became clear that we should still be concerned about arsenic in our rice,” she wrote.
The FDA’s glossing over the arsenic problem was so blatant that even WIRED Magazine got in on the backlash and published a story by Deborah Blum that essentially accuses the FDA of a cover-up.
The story is a good one. It’s the kind of thing you might have read in Natural News five years ago. The FDA involved in a toxic food cover-up? The very idea used to be called a “conspiracy theory.” Now the idea is so mainstream — thanks to publications like Natural News spearheading the truth about the FDA – that even WIRED covers it today.
Nevertheless, there’s a whole lot you’re not being told about arsenic in foods. In fact, the real cover-up is far bigger than arsenic in rice…
Lead and cadmium are far more toxic than arsenic
The toxic elements lead and cadmium are probably 2-3 orders of magnitude more toxic than arsenic, generally speaking. While each metal targets different body organs and metabolic pathways, the overall toxicity of lead and cadmium is many times that of arsenic.
And the tests I’m conducting on cadmium in rice products are frequently showing levels of 2,000 – 3,000 ppb. (That’s 2 – 3 ppm.)
This is ten times the level of arsenic typically found in rice products. And given that cadmium is, roughly speaking, 100 to 1,000 times more toxic to the human body, we are talking about a problem that is 1,000 – 10,000 times worse than the problem of arsenic in rice.
So why isn’t anybody talking about cadmium in rice?
Probably because the issue becomes quickly politicized when the conversation turns to rice grown in China.
In China, 89 percent of the rivers used to irrigate rice are heavily contaminated with cadmium. “A 2011 master’s thesis by Liu Chun, a graduate student at Hebei Agricultural Institute, noted that his tests detected excessive amounts of seven different heavy metals including cadmium in the Xiang [river],” wrote MarketWatch.com ”Some 89 percent of the sampled water registered dangerous levels of cadmium.”
China’s version of the FDA found that over 44% of all rice being served at local restaurants was heavily contaminated with cadmium. Much of the rice (and rice products) sold in the USA are imported from China, and as a result they are routinely and widely contaminated with cadmium.
The situation is so bad that I have personally stopped eating organic brown rice until I can identify a really clean source, at which point I will of course share that source with Natural News readers.
Arsenic has been found at 1,000 times higher levels in edible seaweed
If you’re really concerned about arsenic in foods — and you probably should be — you’ll be shocked to know that we’re finding it at over 1,000 times the level in some edible seaweed products.
Yep, the lab tests conducted by Natural News are revealing arsenic at over 200 ppm in some seaweed products. That’s 1,000 times the level generally being reported in rice.
Now, you can argue that Americans tend to eat a lot more rice than they do seaweed, and that’s absolutely true. It is, after all, the total daily intake of arsenic per kg of body weight that’s the real issue here. But for those who do eat seaweed — or for lactating moms who eat seaweed and breastfeed their children — 200 ppm arsenic is potentially a very alarming level.
Arsenic is more toxic when you don’t sweat
Most people don’t know that arsenic tends to collect in your skin. And the primary detoxification pathway for arsenic (once it accumulates in your skin) is sweating.
We live in a society today where a great many people are terrified of breaking a sweat. They live in air conditioned houses and work in air conditioned offices. They hate gyms and hate walking outdoors. They never sweat, and as a result they never remove arsenic from their skin.
So it builds up, year after year, to the point of causing severe skin reactions. Search for “arsenic and skin lesions” and you’ll see what I mean.
Arsenic also damages your lungs, bladder, heart and kidneys while increasing your risk of many types of cancer along the way. Arsenic is bad news.
This is why many people who don’t sweat on a routine basis benefit greatly from infra-red sauna treatments. The saunas force them to sweat, and in doing so they eliminate large quantities of toxins (which is why it’s important to shower after sweating in a sauna).
There’s a LOT more arsenic in chicken than in rice
Finally, here’s something not being reported in the press. There is far more arsenic in conventionally-raised chicken than is currently being reported in rice. In 2011, even the FDA had to admit there was arsenic in chicken.
You want to know why there’s arsenic in chicken? Because chicken producers feed arsenic to chicken on purpose. It’s all part of the corporate run factory chicken production system to maximize profits while compromising the health of the consumer.
Chipotle, by the way, just released an amazing, powerful new video called “The Scarecrow” that brilliantly depicts the issue of factory-farmed chicken. Watch it here:

Some people might think that any individual who makes a camping checklist is excessively well organized and somewhat obsessive compulsive. It is the kind of person who scorns the idea of writing a camping checklist that is prone to forgetting an item so vital to their trip that they have to cut it short. If, for example, you took a lot of cans of food with you on your trip but forgot to bring a can opener you would soon begin to feel hungry. If you were also camping at a location situated several miles from the nearest convenience store then you would obviously have a problem. A camping checklist helps you to avoid this kind predicament so that your vacation is not ruined.

What To Include
When you are deciding what items to include on your camping checklist you need to think about what kind of vacation you are going on. An RV camping checklist will not be the same as the one you would write if you were staying in a tent since you will need to bring different equipment. A great deal depends on where you are going too. Your camping checklist will need to include more items and be very thorough if your destination is far away from civilization somewhere in the American wilderness. However, if your destination is a rural area just five miles away from a small town you will probably be able to purchase any forgotten items during your trip.
Don’t Leave It Until The Last Minute
If you wait until a day or two before your trip to make your camping checklist you increase your chances of forgetting something or running into problems. Write your camping checklist a few weeks before your trip so you will have time to make sure you definitely have everything you might need. This will make preparing for your trip much less stressful because you won’t end up running around like a headless chicken trying to find a new sleeping bag or stove twelve hours before you are due to set off.
Enjoy Your Trip
The best reason to make a camping checklist is to make your trip enjoyable and hassle free. Most people work hard all year and therefore deserve a vacation that does not include stress and unexpected problems. A camping checklist will help you to make sure your vacation runs smoothly so that the memories you make a wholly positive. When you have everything you might need with you camping trips are generally great fun. If you forget something important, this type of vacation can easily turn into a nightmare.

Food shortages in America are a real possibility in the near future as our economy continues to crumble under the weight of economic turmoil and political uncertainty.
Most people do not believe there could be a food shortage in America. After all, there are still 15 types of colorfully-boxed Cheerios packing the isles, which gives them the illusion of abundance. Despite their rosy beliefs, America is already experiencing food shortages in some sectors and the situation could get worse very quickly.
The dollar is quickly losing value and we’re seeing grocery bills rising faster than most people’s incomes. Prices for wheat, corn, soybeans, bread, apples, beef, chicken, eggs, and milk: are shooting up by double-digit percentages. And, with energy prices also rising, more Americans are feeling the pinch in their grocery budget.
Did you know that corn production in America has fallen below normal for several years? The 2012 crop averaged only 123.4 bushels to the acre, which was almost one-quarter below USDA projections.
Because of the recent drought, cattle ranchers have scaled back herd size. A USDA report shows this year’s calf crop will be the lowest since 1949 and the annual calf crop has been declining since 1995. Cows and replacement heifers are at the lowest numbers since 1941.
When the crisis hits, there will be little time to react. Because of the inventory methods used today, your local store shelves have three days or less of food available. Should the supply chain be disrupted, shelves would be empty in three days and millions of Americans would be left to fend for themselves.
Those who are awake to the economic and political conditions in America are preparing for food shortages. Here are 5 simple ways to begin to prepare for food shortages in your household:
- Create a Food Bank
Everybody should have a back-up to the everyday food pantry. Instead of saving your money in the bank earning .25%, a better investment would be storable food. You could start by picking up some extra canned goods, dried foods, and other essentials for storage each time you go to the store. Devise a plan for FIFO (first in, first out) rotation for your food bank. You might want to acquire food-grade buckets to store your bulk dried foods, and be sure to label and date everything. I’ve been getting these kinds of buckets at my local grocery store for free – ask the bakery department for empty frosting buckets. Besides the obvious storeable foods like rice and beans, or canned goods, some other important items to hoard are salt, peanut butter, cooking oils, sugar, coffee, and powdered milk. It’s recommended, too, that you store the kinds of foods that you are now eating… store what you eat, eat what you store. The dehydrated foods from GoFoods are ideal for long term storage as they have up to a 25-year shelf life. They are not only delicious to eat now, but will be both delicious and nutritious for years to come.
This video course reveals how to safely prepare and store foods in the event of a dangerous worldwide crisis. It’s designed for anyone who is frustrated with surging grocery prices and the very real possibility of empty shelves.
- Produce Your Own Food
It would be wise to have the ability to produce your own food should the food system crumble. If you don’t know much about gardening, then start small with a few garden boxes for tomatoes, herbs, or sprouts and keep expanding to the limits of your garden. If possible, get some chickens. They are an easy animal to maintain and have endless benefits from providing eggs and meat, to eating bugs and producing rich manure. Five laying hens can ensure good cheap protein for your entire family. If you have limited growing space, there are brilliant aquaculture systems that can produce an abundance of fish and vegetables in a small area. Set high goals for independent food production, but start with what’s manageable now.
- Learn Food Preservation
Food preservation comes in a variety of forms such as canning, pickling, and dehydrating. If you can afford it, a dehydrator is a tood way to go and usually comes with a preparation guide for most foods. Another option to add months, if not years, to many food items is a vacuum sealer. Once commonly used by previous generations is canning.
- Store Seeds
You might want to take a hint from the government and the elite that have seed banks … so should you. Seeds have been a viable currency in many civilizations past and present. Beware of GMO seeds from commercial seed giants like Monsanto. What you want are heirloom seed banks that allow you to save seeds from each harvest.
- Join or Start a Local Co-Op
Joining local cooperatives is very important, especially when food shortages occur. You may not be able to provide for yourself completely, especially in terms of variety, so having a community mechanism to spread the burden and share the spoils will be important. Check around your local farmers market or search the directory at LocalHarvest.org to see if there is a local food cooperative in your area. If your area doesn’t have a co-op, then start one, perhaps with friends, neighbors, or co-workers.
