Summer Heat Tips to Stay Cool!
Bob Hawkins “The APN Report“ Audio player provided!

Summer Heat Tips to Stay CoolNo doubt about it, summer is coming on strong. I don’t know about you but I’m built more for cooler climates… I naturally have a layer of fat that would allow me to backstroke in ice-choked water if I was a seal. That means when the summer heat cranks up I’m not a happy camper unless there’s ice in my glass of tea. Continue reading Summer Heat Tips to Stay Cool!

The self sufficient home!

The self sufficient home.
DJ Cooper “Surviving Dystopia

The self sufficient homeThis week on Surviving Dystopia I would like to discuss the art of self sufficiency!

What exactly is it to be self sufficient? Personally I think there are many “degrees” of self sufficiency. While to one person it might simply mean that they do not need assistance to live. They can do it all by themselves, not needing to rely on outside assistance. Whereas to another it could be a completely off grid existence. Continue reading The self sufficient home!

Three Aspects of Sustainable Living!

The Three Aspects of Sustainable Living!
By Leslie Delong

While I’m a big fan of Southernprepper1 in recent videos (links listed below) I find we have disagreements on “The Three Aspects of Sustainable Living”

Heat:
Sustainable Bec-Touviere-RoketWhile SP1 and I both agree on using wood for a renewable heating source, I disagree with using the average wood stove. Lets face it, if everyone had to make the switch to wood now, we’d run out of forest within a few years. Though they have made great strides in making wood stoves more efficient, they pale in comparison to Rocket Mass Heaters. A Rocket Mass Heater is over 75% efficient. Meaning that if you use 8 cords of wood to heat your home in winter with the average wood stove, you can cut it down to just over 2 cords for the whole winter. Rocket Mass Heaters also burn wood almost completely, leaving no smoke or smell (after the first minute of start up) just carbon dioxide. These two main reasons alone make it worth the investment. However, the Rocket Mass Heater is also extremely cheap and easy to build. Continue reading Three Aspects of Sustainable Living!

Energy, This Prepper is Not Gonna Leave the Light On!

Lynna 100Sipping hot cocoa while contemplating the day ahead a chill pervaded the room. Glancing at the outdoor thermometer revealed the reason, 42 degrees and only September 5th. The realization that I better get the stove pipe repaired now, hit me. Autumn is on the way and in the natural course of things winter follows and temperatures drop. Autumn also the start of a new school year had me thinking about energy Light bulbeducation. I belong to an electric cooperative which has a great publication called Northern Lights Ruralite containing all sorts of articles on tips for energy savings and the like. A monthly publication I routinely peruse during mornings like today. The article catching my eye this morn, was written by Hailey Hawkins called Become a Student of Savings and was directed at college students. The information Hailey supplied is valuable and without risking plagiarism I want to forward some of the tips on to you. While her article specifically focused on college students I found the tips beneficial for all of us.

The monthly budget is a concern for all of us and winter as beautiful as it is usually means a substantial increase in expenses. Energy being chief among the culprits of my dollars a plan of defense is in order. Often when reading about energy savings the writer starts off with the basics such as turning down the thermometer to 68 during living hours and 60 at bedtime or when away, while this is a very valid tip and in actuality I did begin with it I want to bring up a few things you may not have thought about. Continue reading Energy, This Prepper is Not Gonna Leave the Light On!
