Survival Shelters!

Survival Shelters Handbook Book Review
Josh “7P’s of Survival

Survival SheltersI received The Complete Survival Shelter Handbook: A Step-By-Step Guide to Building Lifesaving Structures for Every Climate and Wilderness Situation. The author (Anthonio Aakkermans) is in Europe making it very impractical for him to be on this live program. Instead, this show we go through the book chapter by chapter. We talk about each type of shelter discussed in the book and provide my input on Continue reading Survival Shelters!

Stockpile Your Bug Out Location?

Stockpile Your Bug Out Location?
Dan F. Sullivan

Stockpile Your Bug Out Location WinterCabinFor some reason, not a lot of people talk about this very important yet crucial aspect of prepping. Everyone’s got food and water in their pantry, in their bug out bags but no one seems to care whether or not they have any preps at their bug out location.

Is it because they don’t need them? Is it because their BOLs are self-sufficient and don’t need cans of tuna and wheat berries when they can just hunt and dig wells? No and no. I believe this to be yet another overlooked aspect of prepping Continue reading Stockpile Your Bug Out Location?

Confessions in the Bunker

Confessions in the Bunker
Host: Jacqueline Druga “Apocalypse Nana

11-19-14 confessionsThey say confession is good for the soul, but it is good in a live or die situation? Many people when faced with dire consequences and feel that they probably won’t make it decide to bare their souls. They confess. They confess on their deathbed, when faced with danger. They confess to feel better or even to secure a place on the good side of the pearly gates. This week on the Apocalypse Nana show we talk about how far would people go to cleanse their soul if they thought they were going to die. Continue reading Confessions in the Bunker

Horror in the Bunker

Horror in the Bunker
Host: Jacqueline Druga “Apocalypse Nana

Bunker 01-doomsday-bunkersThe flash occurs followed by a timpani boom, a nuclear explosion rocks your city, that is one scenario. Or Alien invasion, forcing you into hiding. Any type of scenario that places you into a locked down, hunker room with family, friends or both, is bound to cause problems. Whether you are a master prepper or build an expedited shelter. Things will and can go awry.

The heat will be unbearable at times, so will the cold. Food will have to be rationed, and of course fear sets in. We won’t even Continue reading Horror in the Bunker

Preparedness, The Very Basics!

Preparedness, The Very Basics!
Host: James Walton “I Am Liberty”

To be honest I am a little burnt out by these ominous, Nostradamus, articles about the collapse will happen in two months, 10 months, 10 minutes. I have been put off a bit by certain prepper websites by the amount of this “shock” language. I need to take a step back and just enjoy prepping for what it is not the why so much and definitely not the what if.

PreparednessThat being said we are going to talk about how practical preparedness is and how necessary it is without the use of TEOTWAWKI. I think this winter has made a lot people, especially those below the Mason Dixon line look at things a little differently. There are core items every family should have access to and, this is very important, the more dependent you are on outside services them ore of these core items you should have. For instance all your food comes from the grocery store than you better have a comfortable amount of food storage at home if extreme weather makes travel impossible. Continue reading Preparedness, The Very Basics!

Where IS the best place to be in a SHTF situation?

Where IS the best place to be in a SHTF situation?
Host: Renee “The Homestead Honey Hour

best

Your eyes are open. You have watched over the last few years as various aspects of our culture and society spiral out of control, seemingly ever faster. You have that gut feeling something wicked this way comes. It’s why you prep. It’s why you strive for self-sufficiency. You look at your family and where you presently live – weighing the pros and cons – and you wonder: Should you re-locate or stay where you are? Continue reading Where IS the best place to be in a SHTF situation?

Evacuation Planning!

Planning for Evacuation!
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian”
EvacuationYour home is your castle and I’m sure, like me, you don’t plan to leave it all behind unless you absolutely have to. Sometimes though, bugging out is the only option, and the decision to do so may be made for you either by evacuation orders or the nature of a disaster.

Simply put, no one can say that they will never bug out, and there are some important preparations you need to have in place before that need arises. Sure, everyone should have a bug out kit ready to go, but proper planning isn’t as simple as it sounds. There are many factors to consider such as where will you go, how will you get there, and how to make sure the rest of your family also meets up with you along the way.

EvacuationThe answers to these questions depend on many factors and there is no one size fits all solution. Bug out plans depend on many factors and need to be adaptable on the fly. This week on The Prepared Canadian  I’ll discuss how to plan for almost any scenario with multiple choices that you must have in place before you are forced from your home.

Among the topics will be planning multiple destinations, mapping out routes and alternatives, having many ways to communicate with other members of your family if you are not all together, as well as some advice for bug out bag contents that will not only help you get where you’re going, but also help restore some sense of normalcy when the dust settles and your normal lives begin to come back into play.

Cache Your Stash

Cache You Stash
Host: The Prepared Canadian
CacheAs preppers, we all know the importance of keeping essential supplies on hand. Everything from food and water to fuel and toilet paper is bought, preserved, and carefully tucked away waiting for that event that denies us the ability to easily buy what we need on a day to day basis. Many preppers designate rooms in their homes that get lined with shelving and filled with boxes, ammo cans, buckets, barrels and cases of supplies. But what happens when you need to leave that stash of supplies? How much can you fit into your bug out vehicle, get outta dodge bag, or worse yet, what if your home, and your supplies are directly hit by disaster? Enter the survival cache. Continue reading Cache Your Stash

“The Alberta Floods” first hand account on The Prepared Canadian!

Alberta Flood manOn this broadcast of The Prepared Canadian there is really only one thing worth talking about…the Alberta floods.  I’ll give a rundown of what’s going on as of the recording time, but more importantly what is going terribly wrong.  It’s a sad state of affairs when people think a picture of a fireman carrying an old lady needs to go viral, but we can’t get information about evacuation plans or emergency shelter locations.  Yes in this case the mainstream media has blatantly failed to get important information through and there are lots of Twitter Twits that need a good smack upside the head!

Alberta Flood TownOh yeah, and by the way, I’ll give you all that information that the trusted sources have failed so miserably at getting out!
