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. Read More→

Evacuation to Tips & Tricks from WWII!

Evacuation Canada 600x600RLTTwo shows with a lot of good information starting off with “The Prepared Canadian” and followed by Gary and Brenna of “The Road Less Traveled”.

In this first broadcast Denob asks the questions; Do you have what it takes to survive an evacuation at a moment’s notice? What would you be left with if your home were destroyed by fire or a tornado? There can be any number of disasters that can force you to leave your home without the time to think. What if you needed to get home from work after disaster strikes? Will you be ready to care for your kids or pets? Read More→

Bugging Out Realistically
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian”

Bugging OutHow many times have you looked into gearing up your bug out bag? Have you ever planned on escaping the Mad Max type scenario by living off the land somewhere in the middle of nowhere? Do you have the feeling that a complete societal collapse is looming just around the corner? If so, then this is just the show for you. No, I’m not going all doom and gloom this week, but rather I plan on dealing with a big dose of reality. Read More→

Devices for Survival!

Devices for Survival!
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? Read More→

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!

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.

The Survival Summit In Review
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian

Survival Summit -150x150This has been a long week of reviewing for me, and as a matter of fact, I just couldn’t fit the final day in before having to record the podcast.  The Survival Summit is a 6 day long presentation of interviews by survival and preparedness experts from all aspects of the mindset.

Brought to you by the guys behind The Prepper Project, this event has proven to be overflowing with information ranging from food preservation to battle techniques.  I’ll go over the presentations day by day and point out my favorites and what it was that made them hit the top of my list.

All Is Not Lost On Non Preppers!

All Is Not Lost On Non Preppers!
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian

Non PreppersLast week, I took a break from recording in order to go back to my hometown to help out some non preppers. On December 22, between 20 and 40 mm of freezing rain fell on several towns in the Eastern Townships of Quebec. Not only was this very reminiscent of the 1998 Ice Storm, but in this case many of my own family and friends were left without electrical service for up to a week, meaning a dark Christmas for many.

Non PreppersI took the opportunity to take a tour of the region and offer my help and advice to those affected. Without outing myself as a prepper I was able to help at least one person get a generator set up, which surprisingly started a chain reaction in the neighborhood. To my astonishment there were no comments like we preppers usually hear, about how our homes will be a gathering point of the less prepared. Instead, a neighborhood became interested in becoming more self reliant in the face of future power outages. Read More→

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.

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.

Winter and Prepping, Staying the Course

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Winter Prepping, Staying the Course
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian”

WinterWith the snow on the ground and the mercury closer to the bottom of the tube, many of us will semi retire to the warmth of the indoors for the next few months. Gone for now are the days of foraging, gardening, and preparing harvests. A lot of preppers may feel tempted to take some admittedly well deserved time off from prepping, but there is so much that can be done in the colder months of winter, now that you have a little spare time.

WinterThis will not be a show about alternative heat, or how to survive a snow storm, or what to put in your car kit. Let’s face it, all of that should have been addressed already, and it’s time to look forward to spring. Yes, that’s right, I said spring, and no I’m not nuts! Now is the time to start getting a jump start on your prepping for the seasons to come. There are many ways we can do that and it’s all about planning and expanding our skills. Taking a course in ham radio, or firearms safety is one very good way to spend some cold winter days. Also, you can spend a bit more time at the keyboard gathering, printing, and organizing your home prepper library. Read More→

Best Teacher in Life is Life Itself~

Best Teacher in Life is Life Itself~
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian”

teacherThere is no better teacher in life than life itself. What I mean by this is that actual hands on experience is the best way to gain knowledge and skill sets that you may need. Sure, we can read up about something in books, over the internet, and even ask our friends and neighbors, but getting your hands dirty, so to speak, is the best way to practice that which is being preached to us.

TeacherThat being said, I am going to take a much different approach this week. Instead of picking a topic such as water purification, or composting, or alternative energy and rambling on for the better part of an hour, I’m instead going to share some of my experiences with you on a range of subjects that I’ve actually gotten into in recent history.

A big part of my prepping recently has been centered around communications. Read More→

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. Read More→

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!

Michael Sattler & The Survival Key

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Michael Sattler from The Survival Key
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian”

Survival KeyWe have all spent countless hours researching the various prepper related topics from water purification to home security. Let’s face it, there is an incredible amount of information out there in regards to being prepared, self reliant, or self sufficient. But just how long would you expect to spend searching for, gathering, vetting, and then seeking the new and more pertinent information? If you could actually come up with a number of hours, that answer would likely boggle the mind. Then, if you really wanted to send your synapses into a bender, think about all the information that you probably missed, you know, the really good information hidden somewhere in the thousands of Google search result pages. What if you could have someone else do it for you, or better yet, have a whole team of people do it for you, search, collect, vet out, organize, and package it all up, and still be out there looking for the new information that wasn’t there just a few days before?
