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

At My Fathers Knee, Holidays Then and Now

At My Fathers Knee – Holidays Then and Now
Host: Lynna “The Other side… A Preppers Path”

FathersThe frost is on the pumpkins, within the week Americans across the country pause to give thanks and in many homes share a family dinner. As the old song says ‘Across the river and through the woods to grandmother’s house we go…. ‘ We won’t exactly be heading to Grandmothers house , however The Other Side will be taking a trek back into the days of yester year as Lynna launches a new show segment to be featured each month aptly named “At my Fathers Knee.”

Living a prepared life and learning to do so has opened the eyes and minds of many to the way things were, prior to the industrial revolution spreading across the land, changing the way we do most everything. The advent of the steam engine and electricity opened the flood gates of technology and with it a host of contraptions to easy the burdens of mankind engulfed society. A little something we call Progress, convenience, efficiency, abundance, ease and creating more with less. Each passing decade beginning in the mid to late 1800’s has taken the masses further and further away from hand and home production to machine and factory.

The Bug Out Vehicle

The Bug Out Vehicle
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian”

Bug Out Vehicle

When it comes time to get outta Dodge, the only thing more important than knowing where you are going is having a way to get there. Despite all the worry about EMPs and such, the automobile is still the best choice for this purpose for many reasons including speed, cargo space, and secondary uses such as temporary shelter.

This week, I’ll discuss what to look for when considering a BOV as well as what you’ll need to put into it both for everyday breakdown needs as well as in a bug out situation. I’ll tell you about what fluids to keep and how much as well as some special products available to help with temporary fixes that you could be faced with roadside. I’ll even give you a tip about making your own inexpensive traction aids with some wood scraps you may have lying around or can easily find on a scavenge trip.

Other accessories abound to fit that ultimate Bug Out Vehicle. Take a visit to your local automotive supply store or one of many specialty stores for automotive accessorizes that you may want to equip your Bug Out Vehicle with. Amazon also has an endless list of supplies that may fit your needs. You can visit that list HERE!

Prepping in Canada is as big a remembered lifestyle as it is anywhere else you may look. Politics, economy, and world events be they natural or man made concern us in Canada as they do in the rest of the world, including Bug Out Vehicles. Visit denob aka ”The Prepared Canadian” for what may be a new and refreshing spin you have not seen on what we all do to be prepared and aware!

Family and Preparedness!

Family and Preparedness!
Host: James Walton “I Am Liberty”

FamilyAs we approach the holidays in a week we will be surrounded by dozens of people that know so much about us. Many of those family members who have known us our whole lives may not know that we share concerns about this world and prepare for them. The holidays are a time to come closer and give thanks for all we have. It might also be a time to find out who else has the gas masks in their attic.

It’s the smell of turkeys when your eyes open or football and cheap beer, its your favorite drunken uncle. The holidays often illuminate something that is kept deep in the recesses of our minds until the latter portion of the year. Tonight I want to talk about how to take advantage of the holidays and the time with family. Continue reading Family and Preparedness!

Along the Suffrage Trail` From West to East for FREEDOM NOW!

Along the Suffrage Trail` From West to East for FREEDOM NOW!
By: Amelia Fry

Part of preparedness for most of us has not only been the effort put forth to protect ourselves from unforeseeable events but to also protect ourselves from tyranny, the loss of freedom and liberty. The following article describes a major campaign won by strong Women, strong enough and with enough determination to take on government at all levels… and win. A reminder that change can be made with courage and determination. Gman

SuffrageThe place was San Francisco. The time was September 16, 1915, and in the brilliant lights of the Panama Pacific International Exposition the first Women Voters’ Convention was staging its grand finale – a spectacular send-off of petite Sara Bard Field and her fellow envoy, Frances Jolliffe, on one more woman suffrage campaign. What made this campaign different was that it was to be entirely by auto, entirely across the continent, and entirely by women. The mission: to symbolize the offer of the political power of the enfranchised women of the West to their voteless sisters in the East. The plan was direct and dramatic – direct because they would take a suffrage petition to President Woodrow Wilson and to the Congress for the opening day of its 1915 – 1916 session; dramatic because in all major cities along the route they would stage parades and rallies, garner public statements of support from congressmen in their home territories, and add thousands of names to the petition – which already had half a million signatures on a roll of paper 18,333 feet long.

Raising Quail with guest, Autumnprepper

Quail: The low-key source of eggs and meat with no land required!

Raising Quail with guest, Autumnprepper
Host: Renée “The Homestead Honey Hour”

homestead honey 125Square foot gardening, vertical gardening, container gardening, edible landscaping and other innovative horticultural, techniques have made raising at least part of one’s own food achievable for many people. However, when it comes to having a sustainable protein source (beyond beans), the urban and suburban prepper / homesteader is often at a disadvantage. City dwellers or those in the ‘burbs may find they have restrictive zoning and/or a lack of land working against them when it comes to keeping a few laying hens or other livestock. But there is a solution. You just have to think outside the box. . . and smaller: Enter the Quail. Continue reading Raising Quail with guest, Autumnprepper

Surviving through a Financial Collapse

Surviving through a Financial Collapse
Host: Sam Coffman “The Human Path”

Financial CollapseThis week, Sam Coffman interviews Fernando Ferfal Aguirre, author of the highly acclaimed book, “Surviving the Economic Collapse.” Fernando lives in Buenos Aires and survived with his family through the sever financial collapse in Argentina near the turn of the millennia. During that time, citizens’ access to their own money in banks was severely limited – reaching as low as $200 per week allowed in bank account withdrawals – and the infrastructure of the country collapsed in many areas as well. Security was a huge concern as theft and looting skyrocketed.

Meanwhile, banks still expected their payments for loans and people still had to try to work or find work that would support them and their family enough to get through the crisis. Fernando shares his experiences with this period and how he and his neighbors got through the security and financial crises that loomed in front of them on a daily basis for over a full year.
