All the news is surrounding Ebola. Some say for good reason some say otherwise. Ebola is terrible and something that we all should understand. Even if the threat is isolated and it is very difficult to spread. A threat to your life is just that and should be respected enough to gain some knowledge on the topic.
Family, Getting Them On Board
Host: James Walton “I Am Liberty”
I have often said that a man without kids and a wife cannot see the world for all that it is. Its like the electro magnetic spectrum. Humans can only sense so much of what is actually around them. There is a very incredible power that a man receives the days he becomes a husband and another ascension when he becomes a father. When he becomes a husband the world around him becomes a threat and he realizes that there is something so precious in his life that he would die to protect it.

So you’ve caught the vision of what it means to be self reliant, and to be prepared for a variety of scenarios that might leave you family without outside assistance for a period of time. But your family is not on board, and isn’t sure what all the fuss is about. How do you help you children catch the vision, and motivate them to participate joyfully?

Do you have what it takes to survive an evacuation at a moment’s notice? What would you be left with if your home were destroyed by fire or a tornado? There can be any number of disasters that can force you to leave your home without the time to think. What if you needed to get home from work after disaster strikes? Will you be ready to care for your kids or pets?
This week on The Prepared Canadian, we will take a look at bags…bug our bags, get home bags, everyday carry bags, as well as special consideration for pets and kids. Not just what to put in them, but why you need them in the first place. In addition, we will have two tips for five dollar preparedness, news from the blog and the forum, a fantastic prepper website of the week, and of course, my weekly editorial.
Ok , I am shocked, naively surprised maybe? I just read that they are scanning palm prints of elementary students to pay for their school lunch? Really? Let’s get real folks that’s being fingerprinted!!! and why…hello big brother!! Is this a necessity? What do you think, I think we don’t have enough jobs as it is and now we are scanning palm prints to pay for lunch. What happened to the good ole head count, the reason they say is to give kids more time to eat? Again really? Let’s talk about this on my show “The Other Side…A Preppers Path” I believe it merits open discussion! The show started out about ethics and I suppose this ties in too, The week has revealed much..headlines of out of control weddings and brawls, a mother shooting herself and 4 children while she was intoxicated. Yikes~What is going on.. on a lighter side the days of autumn are definitely upon us. Chilly nights dipping down into the 20 degree realm, glorious sunny days revealing blue skies, falling leaves and the hustle and bustle of getting ready for the seasons change. At my castle that includes, building a chicken coop, mowing a final time, re-caulking windows, splitting and stacking firewood and the list goes on. All just a day in the life of a prepper. October, the 10th month into the year 2012, and where are you? In January we talked about assessing where you are in prepping and life with the changing of the season it’s a good reminder to take a moment and reassess where are we? Have you met goals, set others or are you woefully behind where you wanted to be? What about what’s going on in the world today and it’s affect on you, have you assessed that? Let’s delve into this hodge podge and doing some assessing. Listen to this show in player below!
