If you own land whether it be a quarter acre or one hundred acres, you can create your own homestead. The essence of homesteading is to focus on increasing what you’re able to produce yourself and reducing the number of store-bought things you consume. How you do this, to what extent, and in what order, is totally up to you and will depend on your long-term vision for your homestead. Once you have your land, here’s what to do next to use your homestead efficiently without blowing a hole in your savings account. Continue reading Got Homestead Land? What to Do Next→

Home schooling, questions and answers!
Renee “Homestead Honey Hour”
If you’re a parent – especially a parent who preps, homesteads, or both — chances are you’ve thought about home schooling. Maybe you’re homeschooling already.
There’s more joining the home schooling camp every year. The National Center for Education Statistics reports 1.7 percent of kids were home schooled in 1999, 2.2 percent in 2003, and 2.9 percent in 2007. In 2011, that figure was at 4 percent. If you crunch the numbers Continue reading Home schooling, questions and answers!→
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. Continue reading Family, Getting Them On Board→
Life changes! We all know the only thing that is constant is change. Are you ready for the changes that could come your way? Flood, fire, drought, hurricane, tornado, extreme cold, terrorist event, economic issues and more occur constantly, a fact proven over and over. Now is the time to prepare for the unexpected events of life not later. Preparing for the unexpected is something that should be sooner than later. According to articles dating back to Feb of 2012 some 3 million residents of the good ole USA are considered preppers, so the news is out. Together with this number and the unknown numbers of people quietly preparing their lives the need for clear, honest information is a necessity. Where can you find the information you need to be prepared, to protect your loved ones, to learn what is needed to lead a life of preparedness that creates both peace and power.

On the Homestead Honey Hour TheMrsVolfie takes the helm in this episode of learning and sharing from mistakes as well as triumphs!
I have heard it said that there is livestock and there is dead stock, when we start homesteading and prepping we don’t have all the answers so we rely on the internet. We rely on what people tell us, farmers, breeders, and old timers who have been around the block and then some! But Guess what? These people are just human and they make mistakes, or maybe, they have never faced a situation you could face. Or, maybe they are selling you a line to make a buck. Whatever the case may be folks, putting people on pedestals can be dangerous. Many of us have blogs and YouTube channels, and we share our experience, our strengths and our hopes but that does NOT make us experts. All we can do is share what we learn, when we learn it, when we make a mistake admit it, and share what we learn from the experience.
If we OWN our mistakes…we can learn from them…and hopefully not make them again…Sharing our experiences with failure…is JUST as important as sharing our triumphs.
If you don’t know Nurse Amy and Dr. Bones you soon will. They both can best be described as a deep well of information that never runs dry. I have had the pleasure of working with them both over the past couple of years on different podcasts and very much look forward to working with them again. Once you have listened to an episode of the Doom and Bloom Hour, gleaming the information they provide I’m sure you will agree we have another winner and you will be back for more.
Starting next week both Nurse Amy and Dr. Bones will be re-broadcasting right here on American Preppers Radio. Sunday 1/6/2013 at 7:00pm/Est, 6:00pm/Ct 4:00pm/Pt will be the first episode of the Doom and Bloom Hour. Be sure to have pencil and paper ready, better make that a note book as you will find yourself wanting to take a lot of notes. Remember though, should you miss the broadcast, as with all our shows you will be able to listen again by going to their show page for the archives.
Nurse Amy and Dr. Bones have been podcasting as the Doom and Bloom Hour for over two years. Their shows are focused on medical preparedness including strategies for medical issues without access to modern medical help, herbal medicine, survival gardening, recent world issues and topics affecting those who are trying to become more prepared for times of trouble. Join them on a journey to preparedness, don’t forget the “band-aids” and laugh along with two hosts who know how to make learning fun!
That’s next Sunday, the Doom and Bloom hour with Nurse Amy and Dr. Bones right here. Go to Listen and Chat and join other like minded people on the road to “medical” preparedness!
On the “Lost Art of Prepping” Do you know what it truly means? Too many preppers out there are complacent and thinking that just storing food and supplies will help. Well they do help in a short term scenario but in the long term they will run out. You have to start learning skills, practicing them and implementing them. You cannot wait till the time comes to start doing something. TEOTWAWKI means your world or the way you do thing is going to change forever. It will not come back to what you have and do now. Time to put this into perspective. Listen to this show in player below.
This Tuesday at 8:00pm/Central “The Crooked Path to Preparedness” will be packed with fun and encouragement, as always. The topic will be Mutual Aid and we are guest staring The MinnesotaPrepperGals aka Allen2045, PrepperChickie and Petprepper. These gals are not only talented they are a hoot and a holler!
Sissy Bob asked them to be guests on the show because they are a great example of what prepping is all about. They not only prepare for themselves but they help others and they have fun while they are sharing and learning.
These gals will be sharing some of their knowledge with us along with sharing some inside information on themselves. Be sure to join us for what is sure to be an encouraging, informative and entertaining hour.

We all learn lessons in life and the prepper’s life is no different. As we are skipping down “The Crooked Path to Preparedness” we find that sometimes we trip and fall off the path. That is what we call learning as you go and living as you learn. The key is to not get discouraged by our mistakes or trips and to pick ourselves up by our overall straps and keep going.
