Electricity is a great thing, until it is no more. We get so used to having light at a flick of a switch. But what happens when those lights go out? On Survival and Tech Preps we have talked about high tech vs low tech in previous shows, now I want to talk about prepping for a low tech lifestyle. Read more “Low Tech Prepping!”

Life Hacks When Technology Fails Us
Highlander “Tech Preps”
If you missed this show last week your not alone. Because of technical difficulties we all did. Tonight we give it another go. Thanks for your patients.
When Technology fails us, when the power goes out, when stuff breaks, what do we do? Who do we turn to? In this episode I will be talking about simple life hacks that you might not have even realized that can get you thru a rough patch; such as power outages, electronics failure, icy sidewalks, how to get water if the power does go out, how to cook, how to generate electricity.

There are several different reasons and scenarios that could drive us back to the stone age. You could be tired of life heartbroken, in debt, just all around tired of the way things are run and suddenly you vanish. You pack what you need, find a decent piece of land and live there. No electricity, no air-conditioning, no … gasp Internet.
Power, Living Without
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian” Let’s face it, our power grid is unreliable. In the face of disaster, it’s almost inevitably the first system of support we lose. Even with relatively minor incidents such as snow storms or moderate wind, the electricity goes out, leaving us in the dark, with no refrigeration, heat, or working stove to cook on.

This week on The Prepared Canadian, we’ll take a look at power. No, not the political type, but how t have enough power to get by during an emergency situation. A simple inverter, a few extension cords, some rechargeable batteries along with some common sense and power saving tips will get you through most of what will ever happen to you as far as power failures go. No, you won’t survive the rapture or a global EMP strike, but that’s not what this episode is about. Power from your car will give you all the electricity you need to get through power outages that last from 1 day to a few weeks.
But, before we go into that, I have a bit of a rant that I just HAVE to get off my chest. So pull up a chair and have a listen.
