Re-Inventing the Wheel? – A review of The Have More Plan

PlanNo need to re-invent the wheel, since time began man has endeavored to advance and prepare for life. Preppers, homesteaders, survivalists or whatever label you choose all have much in common. Becoming self-reliant, secure and prepared has for decades been the banner taken up by countless people. This path or gauntlet has been and is still full of pitfalls and follies all too easy to fall victim to. Today, many with a mind to preparedness and self-reliance tend to become so engrossed with what we are doing often we believe it is all a new concept, spinning our wheels attempting to re-invent what has already been learned and done. The roadmap to self-sufficiency has been plotted. Technology has advanced making changes to much of what and how we do things, so life has changed but there is no need to feel you are on uncharted ground.

Root Cellars! Knowing you can feed your family!

Root cellars! Knowing you can feed your family!
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian

Root Cellars

As preppers, we spend a great amount of time learning how to store food. Each method has it’s pitfalls though; canning requires a lot of time over the stove and dehydrating can be a long process that requires a good deal of electricity. Solar dehydrating is barely an option for us in Canada as humidity levels are high and temperatures are low in the fall when the most produce is ready. Sure, there’s always the freeze dried option, but that can get expensive. Continue reading Root Cellars! Knowing you can feed your family!

Do It Yourself & The Prepper Lifestyle

Do It Yourself & The Prepper Lifestyle
By: Lynna

Do It YourselfSaving headache, time and money, DIY (do it yourself) boon or disaster? Necessity is of course the mother of invention and never more so than when you’re home alone and something breaks. The ensuing crisis can escalate into a full scale disaster in a matter of moments or be a long drawn out aggravation waiting for repair. To top it off the economics of calling someone else in can create its own disaster in your budget and privacy, two very important items in living prepared. Then again we all have a story about how we or another close to us was going to fix that and save a ton, except that….yep in the long run it cost double or more to repair the repair. So as preppers what do we do? Living on a single income or a reduced one often stops us from calling the repairman, it’s just not in the budget but that faucet is leaking and it’s the hot water to boot, or the toilet keeps running, the blinds need to be hung, that hole in the drywall is growing daily (sure wish I hadn’t pushed the corner of the table into it), life moves on and things happen, they break down or we break them.

Realism in Self Defense Training!

Realism in Self Defense Training!
Host: Sam Coffman “The Human Path

SelfDefenseWe all hope for the best and prepare for the worst. When it comes to self defense most preppers/survivalists would rely on their stockpile of weapons and ammunition. What if for one moment your weapon was not at your side and the unexpected happens? Would you have the ability to defend yourself? Would you know what to say or do when confronted by would-be assailants or would you cower down hoping for the best but not prepared the the worst that could now happen?

This is a good time to also remember that your child or children may be with you. Who is going to protect them when accosted by a stranger or strangers? These are all possibilities we do not care to think about but exist and are very real. It does not have to be a societal collapse or disaster that brings on this type of scenario. This can happen today in the parking lot of your local grocery store or even in your own front yard. Continue reading Realism in Self Defense Training!

Prepping for a Suburban or Rural Community

Prepping for a Suburban or Rural Community
Host: Tara “Common Sense Prepping”

preppingPrepping for a Suburban or Rural Community author Michael Mabee is this weeks’ Common Sense Prepping radio show guest. Mike is very concerned about the vulnerabilities of the power grid and what would happen in American should the fragile electrical system fail. Mabee does not focus on a particular cause of a grid down situation, as he very accurately notes, the catastrophic end results for the populace would be the same despite the cause of a power grid failure.

Michael Mabee had this to say about how his professional background that led him to become a preparedness author:

“I’ve worked as an urban EMT and paramedic. I’ve worked as a suburban cop and for the federal government. I’ve had a good deal of military training, two wartime deployments to Iraq, and two humanitarian missions to Guatemala. I was decorated by both the army and the federal government for my actions on 9/11 at the World Trade Center. But I have to say that my favorite “decoration” was having one of my troops in Iraq say to his first sergeant after a convoy: “that sergeant major is a hard ass!” Continue reading Prepping for a Suburban or Rural Community
