Primitive Skills, Putting Them to the Test: Do you have what it takes?

Primitive Skills, Putting Them to the Test: Do you have what it takes?
Host: Sam Coffman “The Human Path”

Primitive Skills  Thanks to television and the internet, there are a lot of misconceptions today about what it actually takes to survive in the woods. In our first-world environment in North America, we grow up now without any real connection to the amount of work it takes to survive, let alone any kind of connection to our natural environment itself.

Primitive SkillsAfter returning from the deep jungle in Nicaragua and observing the indigenous Indians of that region, I feel it is important to call attention to the concept of primitive living skills. While it is one thing to learn the skills, it is an entirely different concept to have to live off of them (especially alone) indefinitely in the wilderness. If you are in a survival situation where you must live off the land, what are the most important basic tools you would want to have with you? What do you think are some of the most important implements you would need to make? Is the order of basic necessities (food, water, shelter, fire, security) always the same? How important are the mental aspects of survival and is there any way to train or improve that part of yourself?

Cheap Prepping on The Crooked Path!

Cheap Prepping on The Crooked Path!
Host: Sissy Bob “The Crooked Path to Preparedness

CheapThis Tuesday on Best of Prepper Broadcasting Sissy Bob of The Crooked Path to Preparedness is discussing Prepping on the Cheap. Not too many people have so much money they can just run out and buy everything they need to be prepared for tomorrow’s disaster. Most people are normal, everyday, overall wearing, average income earning people that have to make it on a budget and try to prepare for the future at the same time. In fact I don’t even know a single person that has a bunker like they show on TV. So we are going to talk about how “low budget” people , like Sissy Bob, have to prepare for what’s coming. It’s not just about buying in bulk it’s a little of a lot of things and a lot of little things. Continue reading Cheap Prepping on The Crooked Path!

Revolution of Resolution, Stocking UP #3

Revolution of Resolution, Stocking UP #3
Host: Lynna “The Other Side… A Preppers Path”

RevolutionNary a week until a new calendar replaces the one on the wall. 2014 will arrive whether we are ready or not. Media stories hoping to catch the attention, already shout the time for new Resolutions is nigh!! A time honored tradition by many to see the light and implement a new way of doing things or something. How many have made that firm decision, decided this was the year, and a New Years’ Resolution made? I dare say pretty close to all of us world-wide. This year, right now and for the continued future we will make that resolution, we will “just do it”! Sounds great but how do we resolve our resolution? The time for Revolution is here!

A Cult? No, we’re just Preppers!

A Cult? No, we’re just Preppers!
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian”

CultFortunately I came across two different things on the internet. Before that I was having a tough time deciding on a topic for this week’s broadcast of The Prepared Canadin.  I could have talked about food storage or water purification again, looked into a top ten list of prepper related gear, or other such subjects, but I felt somewhat uninspired by these ideas.

cultOf the two articles the first was an article about a psychologist at Penn State that made a comparison of preppers to a cult, and in some respect he could have a point, but for the most part, his observations seem unfounded.  In fact, I explain a few ways in which this psychologist is likely a prepper himself, but just doesn’t know it.

Goodbye 2013 Let’s get to work America!

Goodbye 2013 Let’s get to work America!
Host: Charlie “Charlie in the Box”

Goodbye 20132013 will soon come to an end and if we were to look back at this year a lot of things have happened. In politics, world affairs, and the trampling of the United States Constitution here at home. We were on the verge of world war three with different countries a few times, but that wasn’t really the big story that we would remember in 2013.

In 2013, America continuously goes through a transformation with the transpacific partnership and along with the loss of American’s liberties. We have the NSA spying on your e-mails, your phone calls, and everything you are doing on the internet. What you purchase at your Costco’s and other stores that require you to have a membership card to receive there discounts, it’s just a loss of your privacy in America today and if you are willing to sacrifice your privacy because “you have nothing to hide”, you are a fool. It’s not about that. American’s need to start understanding what governments are all about. It’s 2013, and we still don’t know the difference between our ass and a hole in the ground. Goodbye 2013!

Practical Preppers Founder on Common Sense Prepping
Host: Tara "Common Sense Prepping"

PracticalCommon Sense Prepping is proud to announce that Practical Preppers founder Scott Hunt will be this week’s featured guest. Although Hunt may be most well-known for helping develop the prepper’s scoring system for National Geographic’s Doomsday Preppers series, the homesteading expert’s self-reliance expertise and services goes far beyond the small screen.

 

The hit prepping series will utilize an enhanced and more in-depth scoring system during the coming season, according to Hunt. The prepping expert noted his enjoyment at interacting with featured more in the upcoming season. Hunt recently launched the Practical Preppers app to share his skills and advice with the masses and is nearing completion on his first book, which will serve as a detailed sustainable living manual.

Stocking Up! The Bully Pulpit!

Stocking Up! The Bully Pulpit!
Host: Lynna "The Other Side… A Preppers Path"
 
bully pulpitYes indeed episode 2 of our intended series all about Stocking Up- The Prepared Life veers course this Sunday. Mind you not off course but a slight turn down a trail along the path. Personal agenda in the guise of Free speech and personal religious belief have inundated the media air waves including the social media. Amazing simply amazing and another example of shooting from the hip. What does this week’s news flap have to do with living prepared? In a nutshell everything. This week’s turn of events rallied around Free Speech and religious belief or so they would have you believe. It boggles the mind, the number of entities and individuals jumping on the bully pulpit. Yes I said bully pulpit you know the definition; a position sufficiently conspicuous to provide an opportunity to speak out and be listened to.

Being Prepared To Survive

Being Prepared To Survive
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian

In the end, I think I brought myself to a revelation as to just what it means to be a prepper

PreparedNever have I been so hard pressed to come up with a show description as I am now. When I first sat down to record this episode, it was intended as another general chit chat type of show covering an eclectic collection of thoughts on various topics. What it turned out to be was so much more than I ever expected. The show went from explaining why we shouldn’t concentrate so much on specific possible events and focus simply on losing systems of support to how we define ourselves as survivalists or preppers and why using a word and it’s dictionary definition is simply not possible.

PreparedDuring this week’s show, I’ll also talk about “American Blackout”, which was supposed to be an episode all to itself, but I felt that it could be condensed into another thought process, so long as the biggest lesson to be learned was brought to the forefront. Also, I bring into the conversation the idea of current events as a prepper/survivalist raison d’etre, and how this is really a matter for all people to be concerned with, not as an issue for us alone against the sheeple.

In the end, I think I brought myself to a revelation as to just what it means to be a prepper, or a survivalist, or a whatever you want to call yourself and the voyage throughout the show is neither straight, nor centered on any one specific topic. I hope that you seriously listen to all the individual topics that I started out with and see just how it all rolled out into something I certainly never expected it to.

Assessment 2014 SHTF

Assessment 2014 SHTF 
Host: James “I Am Liberty”

AssessmentHere at I AM Liberty we really appreciate setting goals for each year. It was this mindset that actually created the Reroot USA movement. I grew tired of not fixing problems and just whining about them. It was then as 2012 came to a close and we all survived the MAYAN calendar that the decision to move into solutions came about.

It was in the creation of Reroot USA that I started to appreciate a fresh, New Year and the possibilities therein. For the I AM Liberty Faithful you all know I am expecting a look at first steps in the community in 2014. I want to hear from you and how you are engaging or developing the network in your own communities.

AssessmentThe idea behind the 2014 SHTF assessment is a very short 20 question list that will give you an idea of where you stand and more importantly what you can focus on improving in the New Year. There will be much more than simply how much food, water and bullets do you have…and gas masks. The questions will touch on several categories including food and water, security, fitness, evacuation and community. Continue reading Assessment 2014 SHTF

State of Michigan vs “Bakers Green Acres”

State of  Michigan vs “Bakers Green Acres”
Host: Renee “The Homestead Honey Hour”

State of Michigan vs "Bakers Green Acres"Back in March, I interviewed Mark Baker of Baker’s Green Acres here on the Homestead Honey Hour. Mark is a retired air force veteran, now sustainably farming in northern Michigan State along with his wife and 8 children. If you missed that show, Mark and his family were and still are involved in a legal briefs for their right to farm, specifically to continue their pasture-raised hog operation. Using an incredibly ambiguously-written Invasive Species Order or ISO, (which, by description basically outlaws ANY pig), the Michigan DNR went after Mark’s main livestock: His heritage breed Mangalista hogs.

The Austramerican (Australian) West

The Austramerican (Australian) West on “They Were Preppers
By John Greemway
Reading By: Doug aka GoatHollow

AustralianTo go into the Australian West is to go into the past. Yet wherever you go, however remote in distance or in time, America and its own West intrudes. A year ago I went to the edge of the Old Stone Age with a party of Australian scientists to study the water metabolism of the aboriginal natives in the hope of determining how these most primitive of people had adapted their bodies to survive in conditions of great heat and aridity. One particularly hard day, when the temperature stood at 120 degrees in the water bag, I sat in the red dust of Australia’s dead heartland trying desperately to convince myself that I was in the same world as my university halfway around the earth. Except for the main body of natives camped near the half dozen tin-an-transite shacks of the government station twenty-five miles away, our party of seven whites and two dozen natives was the largest group of human beings in two-hundred thousand square miles of desert so barren that – as the Australians say – you could flog a flea across the plain and see him every time he jumped.

AustralianThe adult natives were asleep in the sand, unmindful of the bush flies and the dust settling in their eyes and ears, but a handful of children played in our waterhole and hunted for lizards to trade for hard candy from the lolly jar.” I had recorded some of the strange mythic songs from their parents earlier in the day, and since the tape recorder was still set up, I asked the children to sing some of their songs for me. They gathered around the microphone, naked, knowing no word of English except “lolly” never having heard a radio or a record player, or seen a movie or television; yet after a moment of conspiratorial giggling, they sang out, loud and confidently: Daby, Daby Crocka, kingada wile frontee.
