The tides have turned! If we look back about one year ago, it was a hard time to be a prepper. Discussions of impending doom from various scenarios such as the Mayan calendar, Niburu, and a multitude of other world ending nonsense dominated the news, internet, and even the prepper community. You couldn’t use the word prepper without someone adding the word doomsday in front of it…thanks to that now famous television show.
But now we have a whole new set of issues developing. Floods in Alberta, wild fires in Quebec, throw in a few thwarted terrorist attacks, and we are now faced with the perfect opportunity to talk to our neighbors, family, friends and coworkers about being prepared. I’ll give a few dos and don’ts to consider when you decide (and you should decide) to start spreading the preparedness mindset.
After all that, I’ll talk a little bit about the Emergencies Act and look at the recent RCPM gun confiscations during the Alberta floods.
The WAIT is over! We are on the schedule. Veteran Survival Instructor Tony Nester of Ancient Pathways will be joining the Other Side of a Preppers Path Mon.

The proven most effective way to survive a disaster is to have the essential gear and plans in place before before the event. The only way to achieve this is to develop a mindset of self-reliance.

Preppers Versus HomesteaderPrepper or Homesteader? Is there a difference between them? Is one better than the other? Does it matter? Can you be both? In my opinion, the answer to all these questions is a resounding, “Yes!” Let’s dive into the nuances between a prepper and a homesteader on “The Homestead Honey Hour“. We’ll discuss what separates the prepper from the homesteader as well as what makes us the same. I’ll explain why leaning towards a homesteading mindset has its distinct advantages over that of a prepper. See how changing your approach from one of prepping to one of homesteading can not only get you off the endless, prepping treadmill, but move you into an even better position of self-reliance than just prepping alone. Sometimes, this change involves something subtle but significant towards long-term survival and/or self-reliance. For example, a prepper might have a vacuum-sealed can of heirloom seeds stashed away that he ordered off the internet. The homesteader also has a stash of heirloom seeds stored- but they’re likely seeds saved from a previous harvest. So, both prepper and homesteader have seeds put away. Both may garden already. But the homesteader has taken it a step further in saving seeds he has chosen and grown himself, has had success with already, knows he likes, and has removed himself from being dependent on an outside source for seeds each season. Of course, let’s not throw out the baby with the bath water: Prepping practices can be of benefit to the homesteader too, which we’ll also discuss too often the homesteader is reluctant to embrace prepping and this is a mistake IMHO and I’ll tell you why. So tune in to the HHH show to discuss this intriguing, (maybe a bit controversial?) topic of prepping versus homesteading and add your input. Listen to this show in player below!
