Ham radio, what you need to know!

Ham radio, what you need to know!
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian

Ham radio DawnMossHam radio can be an indispensable resource during an event. Not only will it allow you to keep in touch with other members of your support group, but if enough preppers would take it seriously, a whole network could be set up from coast to coast to relay valuable information. Even without a license, you can own and listen for information from ham radio operators, emergency services such as police, fire, and others, and listen in on worldwide broadcasts which can keep you up to date on the general situation of things.

Canadian Overview on Prepping!

Canadian Overview on Prepping!
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian”

Canadian gardening-vegetablesEvery show begins with a little segment about what I (and others) have done in the past week and to that I can actually fill a whole podcast with my projects and purchases.

I’ll give an overview of some of the gardening chores that had to be done, either because of mother nature wanting to reclaim the cleared garden space, or dealing with failed crops and replanting. Some things couldn’t be saved while others simply needed a helping hand. Continue reading Canadian Overview on Prepping!

Maintenance of Supplies & Equipment

Maintenance of Supplies and Equipment
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian

Maintenance ep71-6Here in Canada, we experience a wide range of dangerous weather related emergencies. Some of these weather conditions will give us a bit of a heads up, such as the case with Hurricane Arthur. Some will be a complete surprise with only a moment’s notice at best as with a tornado. Others will have some advance warning in the form of a “possibility” like with the flooding in Saskatchewan. Continue reading Maintenance of Supplies & Equipment

Off Grid Cooking Alternatives

Off Grid Cooking Alternatives
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian

Off Grid Cooking stove 41ZtvGiNHILOver the last couple of years, I have had the chance to try a lot of different off grid cooking options. From home made solar ovens to open fire methods and everything in between, I found out a lot about what works and what doesn’t. Actually, almost everything I have tried, does have a use, but there is no one appliance or trick that will work for everything…at least not well.

As preppers, we are exposed to a lot of information over the internet about the great ideas that people have had. My advice is to try it before you have to rely on it. In fact, that is exactly what this week’s show is all about…trials and errors. This week, I will talk about different methods of alternative off grid cooking that I have had personal experience with, and only those that I have tried and tested myself.

Summer Of Survival!

Summer Of Survival!
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian”

SummerHow would you like to get over 36 hours of access to some of the most informed and dedicated preparedness experts available. Of course you would love that, but there is absolutely no way you could afford to travel to all the different prepper expos and seminars that these people present at. Well, let me tell you, there is a way you can get great information from 2 dozen different presentations over the course of 12 weeks from the comfort of your own home. It’s called the Summer Of Survival and it starts on June 3rd. Unlike some of the online events we’ve seen in the past, the seminars will be presented at a rate of two per week, giving you time to really absorb the subject matter without feeling like you’re trying to take a sip of water from a fire hose! Continue reading Summer Of Survival!

Seeds and Prepping Plans!

Seeds and Prepping Plans, two great shows for tonight from our Saturday hosts “The Prepared Canadian” and “The Road Less Traveled”!

Seeds ep65-5Seeds, what’s the difference? Now that the snow is gone, or almost ,our thoughts will be turning outdoors. More specifically to the gardens. There is no shortage of skills to learn or knowledge to be gained when it comes to growing your own food. We have to think about soil and amendments, water and storage for irrigation, mulches, hugel beds, etc. but how about spending some time thinking about your seeds. We have all heard that we need to have heirloom, or open pollinated seeds, but why? What is the difference between hybrid and GMO? Are they both bad for us?

Community Preppers!

Community Preppers!
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian

Community Backwoods Home150x100As preppers we all realize the importance of alternate shelter in the form of a bug out location. A safe place away from the hustle and bustle of large towns and cities where we have all the necessary supplies safely tucked away for when we need them. Some preppers prefer to go the homesteading route and keep most of their food on the hoof or in the ground for as much as possible. Others insist that a permanently set up community of “like minded” people is the only way to go. Somehow or another, each of these ideas has its strengths and its weaknesses.

Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian”

Devices waka waka power 2

A growing number of preparedness items that the typical prepper has in their kits are run by batteries. From Iphones to AM/FM radios to ham HT’s and flashlights, these low power devices need juice. There are several ways to keep them charged, either with their built in batteries or with rechargeable NiMH cells. So just what is the best way to keep the power up in all those devices?

Medical Preparedness!

Medical Preparedness
Host: denob “The Prepared Canadian

MedicalThis week I have a special guest for you, well two special guests actually. Dr Bones and Nurse Amy will join me to talk about medical preparedness. I had the pleasure of getting in touch with the Altons a few years ago and have learned so much from them that I couldn’t possibly cover everything in one podcast. However, we did have time to talk about their book, The Survival Medicine Handbook, now in it’s second edition as well as lots of other topics like using conventional and natural medicines as a compliment to each other, using fish antibiotics for people, and pandemic preparedness.

Bread, the life giving staple of humanity
Host: Dean “The Prepared Canadian”

breadBread is often referred to as the life giving staple of humanity.  Every culture on earth has its own version and they feed it to prisoner’s right?  Well, OK, maybe that last part is just folklore, but let’s face it, there simply is no better way to enjoy all that peanut butter and homemade jam you have stored up in the pantry.

The problem is…how can you make bread during or just after a disaster?  The stores are closed, the power is out, and the stove doesn’t work!  Well, there are a few ways you can turn your stored up flour into golden loaves.

breadThis week we’ll talk about different ways t make bread with or without yeast.  I’ll discuss ways to use a simple bread machine and which setting work best.  If you simply can’t generate power for a bread machine, don’t worry, there are plenty of ways to get your daily loaf such as sourdough.  I’ll tell you how to capture wild yeast in a simple mixture of flour and water, but if that doesn’t work out for you, I have a cheat tip to help it along.
