Date added: 05/02/2013 Introducing the Waka Waka Power

From the makers of the Waka Waka Light comes the Waka Waka Power!

Waka Waka PowerThis new product charges smart phones and tablets and still provides light that will last you all night long.

Maintaining a charge on your electronics can be especially difficult when the power goes out or you are away from civilization.

Sure, you can bring along extra battery packs but they will run out of juice once you use them up. Then what are you left with?

The Waka Waka Power is a renewable energy source that keeps on giving you full power day after day. It is designed to recharge your cell phone or tablet whenever you need to and to do this day after day for years.

The secret is no secret at all. The sun provides all the energy we'd ever need if only we could tap into it. The biggest hindrance to using the sun for everything is that we don't have the technology to use it efficiently.

Well, now we do! As already proven with the Waka Light, the Waka Power has the same ultra-efficient circuitry that transforms the sun's power into energy and is able to store massive amounts of it for your use - when you need it.

Charges tablets and smartphones!

It's a simple as this: set the unit in the sun for about 8 hours. Indicator lights let you know it is charging and when it is complete. Connect it to your phone and in less than an hour and a half, you have a FULL battery on your device.

That's as quick if not quicker than plugging your phone into a wall outlet!

Can you do this everyday?

Yes, you can. You do not have to use electricity to recharge your phone anymore.


Yes, really!

Wouldn't this be perfect for taking with you camping or in the woods or whenever you aren't sure you will be able to recharge?

Yes, no need to overthink it. With this small device, you will always have the ability to recharge your smart phone or charger.

What about for a home emergency kit?

The idea behind emergency preparedness is to think ahead and have the things you would want or need during a situation. This device covers two important aspects: Power and Light. If the grid goes down, you will always have power and you will always have light.

What if it's cloudy, will it still charge?

Yes, it will. Just not as fast but you will still be able to charge your devices and have light throughout the night.

Available in your choice of colors - Yellow or Black.  FREE shipping on all Waka Waka Power's!!

  • Never buy another charger. 
  • Stop using your electricity to charge your phone. 
  • The sun does it for free!

Date added: 02/24/2012 Preparing for the end of the world in 2012

One of the most important aspects of preparing yourself and your family for any emergency is having a supply of food available. In the event of a prolonged emergency where you are unable to go to the grocery store for re-supply, having ready made meals to feed your family is the smart and economical thing to do.

Many people stock up on large sacks of grain or 5 gallon buckets of their favorite freeze dried vegetables. Many have stored large numbers of #10 cans. (I'm one of them)

One of the issues people have with these large quantities, is using up what they have opened before it goes bad.

We've found a better way!

Delicious, ready made meals sealed in airtight, nitrogen-packed 4 serving mylar pouches, and then encased in easy to carry, durable plastic containers. You only open what you will use that day!

The unique packaging process removes the majority of the residual oxygen through a nitrogen flushing practice giving these a shelf life of up to 25 years, with absolutely no rotation needed.

25 year shelf life!  What do you think the cost of food will be in 25 years?  Certainly much higher than what it is now.

We have partnered with Wise Company to be able to offer you these long term food supply options. We have 3 day supply, 1 month supply, and even up to a full year's supply of food for an entire family. These entrees costs way less than what you pay at the grocery store for your regular meals. And these taste great!

Official USDA statistics reveal that the average cost to feed a family of 2 adults and 4 children is $14,955.60 per year.  Wise Company ready-made meals run approximately $1.60 a serving (depending on quantity purchased), making them truly affordable.

We are offering you the chance to get stocked up, save money, and take care of your family. You've seen the news, watched the TV shows, and even the government recommends keeping your own food storage program.

Just go to this link

Food Storage

There is a huge demand for long term food storage. We are filling these orders as fast as we can and want you to also be able to take advantage of this opportunity.

Due to huge demand, please allow 3-7 business days for your order to ship.

It's simply being prepared.™

Steve Thibeault and Dave CanterburyAlready a Basic course graduate, Steve Thibeault recently attended and graduated the Pathfinder Advanced Class taught by Dave Canterbury, co-host of Dual Survival on Discovery Channel.

Wilderness self reliance is about being able to sustain yourself with little or no gear. Dave's Pathfinder system teaches the 10 C's of survivability:

  • Cutting Tool
  • Combustion Device
  • Cover
  • Container
  • Cordage
  • Cotton Bandanna
  • Compass
  • Candling Device
  • Cloth Sail Needle
  • Cargo Tape

With these ten things, you're taught to provide for all your needs during a short or even an extended stay in the wild. For the things you don't have, you have the tools to make them out of natural materials so you can continue on. Owning these skills makes you less reliant on your gear and more reliant on yourself and your best survival tool: your brain.
