I want to write a post on who can homestead. We live in times where even using the word homestead sounds old fashioned or confusing. Perhaps many reflect upon the Little House on the Prairie notion, and shake their heads saying no way. Others may wonder how homesteading can benefit one who is a prepper.
What would you do if you knew with 100% certainty that your house and property was going to be looted within 10 minutes, but it was too late to get out because all the roads were blocked? How would you organize your retreat to be able fight and win? Would everyone in your house know exactly what to do, even under pressure? What about the key tactics required to win an assault if a gang took over your local WalMart, and you had to lead the raid to rescue your 15 year old daughter from being brutally raped and killed by them?
All preppers share two things in common… they buy guns, and they fail to train the most likely tactical scenarios that they’d need to use them in.
Join us Monday on The Gun Show, July 15 at 4PM PST, 7PM EST as we talk about the top 5 most anticipated tactical scenarios that preppers will encounter, as military analysts break them down into Standard Operational Procedure for your group. Featuring returning special guest, and combat vet, “Snoddy.” Listen to this show in player below!
Wouldn’t we all like to have a few dozen acres of semi wooded, prime hunting land complete with fortified home, onsite water and off grid power? Well sure we would, that sounds like an ideal bug out location! The reality is there are very few preppers who could afford this type of property, but still want to have a place to go when the poop hits the propeller. Well, here are a few ideas to get you thinking that you CAN really get a bug out property without breaking the bank. Of course, it’s not free, very few things in life are, but there are some low cost options to consider.
It’s no secret that I really don’t subscribe to end of world scenarios, where all infrastructures is lost forever, and mankind has to restart itself with dark age technology. Far more likely are situations where bugging out for a few days, weeks or a couple of months is the best option, and worst case scenario. An epidemic hitting your town, a chemical spill at a nearby plant, general rioting caused by an unpopular political move are just some of the reasons you may want to get your backside out of dodge. How about a tornado, hurricane, or other event such as an earthquake was to take your home from you? Wouldn’t a predetermined location that is yours, set up, and within travel distance be a great thing to be able to fall back on?
This week on The Prepared Canadian, I’ll go over a few lower cost options that can help you get a bug out location set up including some tips on finding land and a few things to look for as well as shelter and supply cache ideas.
