Have you ever wondered where the ideas for these gadgets we use today came from? Have you ever owned a “Flip Phone?” Ever watched Star Trek created by Gene Rodenberry? Are you familiar with Jules Verne or Edward Bellamy? They are among many that have inspired our imagination with their visions turning sci-fi thoughts into reality. You may be one of those that say what has this to do with prepping? These inventions range anywhere from mobile communications, tablets, handheld computing systems, weapons, to G.P.S. equipment and much more! Tune in to this show and find out how many of these sci-fi inventions you yourself use and would be grateful to have when a disaster strikes. Download this show HERE!

Gourmet Preppers and Solar Physics!
Hosts: Gary L. & Gee’sBoo ‘The Road Less Traveled’
Welcome to this week’s outing on “The Road Less Traveled with GaryL and GGsBoo. On this excursion we’ll continue focusing on some of the intricacies of Prepping from our perspectives with an emphasis on psychological preparedness being quite important to our overall efforts. Learning exactly who and what we really are and the nature of our surroundings are essential to being psychologically prepared.
GGsBoo will share some of her “secret” gourmet menus for the Prepper Gourmets and will discuss her sewing room and maybe some of her projects!
GaryL will discuss some solar physics, how it could have a dramatic effect on Prepping citing some previous examples, and why radio communications could be very important. Also, as time allows, he’ll continue the discussion on energy, frequency, and vibration. Continue reading →
Earthquakes in the US, Not Just a West Cost Issue
Host: James of “I Am Liberty”
About 2 years ago, long before I Am Liberty, I was cooking pizza for some folks at the cafe who employed me at the time. When the world began to shake underfoot the windows made the most noise and we rushed to the doorways. It was a truly eye opening experience not to mention my wife was on the road with my newborn son. Thankfully we were far enough away from the source in Mineral, Virginia the property damage was minimal but the effect it had on daily life was felt
It was estimated that one third of the nation’s population felt the effects of this quake. But worse was the effect it had on communications on the East coast. Whenever things like this happen it is always shocking how frail our communications systems are. Continue reading →
When regular means of receiving information are not available such as television, am/fm radio, telephones, and cell phones where should one go? Most experts would agree that of all forms of radio communications that may be put to use in a post disaster situation the Ham Radio (amateur radio) would be the most valuable in sharing information. We have had a few shows just recently on communications and each one bringing to the plate a great deal of information that is useful to both the novice and expert alike.
Sam Coffman of The Human Path gave us a lot of information just last week on ham radio in the second half of his program. Clear and easily understood he made sense out of the technical aspects answering the how and why questions that most may have. You can read more and listen to that show by clinking HERE. Last night, Dave Womach of The Gun show interviewed the founder and CEO of civil dispatch, an on line version of 911 and more that can send out emergency notifications through ham radio. In an emergency this could be a life saving resource even if you are not a ham radio operator. Read more and listen to this show by clicking Here!
Tonight, on this episode of “Preparing For Life’s Storms” Old Geezer Prepper from YouTube helps us understand setting up communications, communications network, the basics and also answer questions for the more advanced radio operator. He has been a prepper since late 1979 and a licensed Ham Radio Operator since 1985. He has also promised to not get so technical that we get lost. Also a visit at the start of the show with the founder of the new e-magazine “Happy To Survive” so join us tonight for more useful information when SHTF 9:00pm/Est 8:00pm/Ct.

One of the simplest ways to prepare for disaster is to buy and stock up on ready-made foods and gear. There is nothing wrong with this unless it is your only strategy or unless you are only interested in being able to survive for a week or two. However, during any kind of disaster that might last weeks, months or indefinitely, it is necessary to have a longer-term plan. This involves sustainable food and sustainable, effective communications.
The most iimportant thing to remember about long-term prepping is that there is a point where skills actually start to trump gear. Nobody can live indefinitely off of nothing but supplies if there are no skills to allow for sustainable resources. In the case of food, this realistically should include meat. Sustainable meat is very easy to provide in a number of ways, but one of the easiest and most convenient for the prepper is backyard rabbits.
Just like sustainable food, the prepper also should be concerned with sustainable communications. That is, not only radio systems that work and have range, but also are powered by a sustainable, off-grid power source. If you could only choose one type of radio to become involved with as a prepper, learn about and operate, it should probably be HAM or amateur radio.
Join Sam Coffman on The Human Path in today’s broadcast as he explains some tips and tricks for back yard rabbits as a sustainable food source, and also discusses various forms of post-disaster communication to include amateur radio.
After two weeks of dealing with five feet of snow and being caught out of town by a record breaking snowstorm, The Prepared Canadian is back! This week we will finally get to discuss the different kinds of communications available to us and how each can be used to address different needs. As well, we will have the five dollar prep tip, news from the blog and the forum, and I will take a look at some of the disasters that Canadians had to endure over the 2012 year.
I will also talk about Mr. Ian Thompson who was charged with four different weapons related charges after using a handgun to defend himself and his home against four attackers with Molotov cocktails and just what this case means for Canadian firearms laws.
Ever feel overwhelmed with trying to understand how to communicate off-grid. Ok you got CB’s, hams, high and low frequency, pricey and cheap antenna’s? Well on this episode of “Preparing For Life’s Storms” we talked about setting up our communications and communications network. OldGeezerPrepper from YouTube helped us to understand the basic and also answered questions from more advanced listeners. He has been a prepper since late 1979 and a licensed Ham Radio Operator since 1985. He has also promised to KISS, or not so technical we get lost. Also a visit at the start of the show with the founder of the new e-magazine “Happy To Survive” Listen to this show in player below for a lot of great information on communication from an expert in the field.
