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!

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!
