More Discipline Part 2 – Sight & AppearanceYou need more discipline and this week we are continuing with Part 2 of our series. Last week was smell and how to exercise more OPSEC on smoke, fire, cooking, and body odor. This week we begin covering sight and appearance. Specifically, we will be covering light and sight discipline. Meaning keeping light signatures low so as not to give away your position or capabilities in the fact that you have power or supplies for lighting. Another topic we are going to cover is how others might see you. Things like keeping your yard clean of trash in order to avoid attention or by putting certain trash out to make it looked like your house has already been looted. We will also cover ideas about how you and your family Read more “More Discipline Part 2 – Sight & Appearance!”

You Need More Discipline Part 1 – Smell

You Need More Discipline Part 1 – Smell

You Need More Discipline Part 1 – SmellWell, it has finally happened. The thing we have all been preparing for has finally occurred and we all got to say a collective ‘I told you so.’ The grid has gone down, Sugar has hit the fan, and society as we know it as has begun to unravel. As a prepper, you are relatively unaffected though because you took the time to stockpile and store up supplies, you planted a garden, your solar panels are providing power and light to your home, and you don’t mind the smell of cooking outside on the grill or with a campfire as the kids are thinking of this as an adventure. Outside your home, however, things are not good. Read more “You Need More Discipline Part 1 – Smell”

Sepsis – Blood Poisoning Fast Lane to DeathWhat do you think of when you hear the words Sepsis, Septicemia, or better known as blood poisoning?

Does the elderly come to mind? Perhaps you think of a grandparent that passed away after contracting it while in the hospital for another ailment. Or perhaps it was someone older who got it after an accident while in the intensive care unit. It could have been an adult relative that had diabetes who cut their foot or had their skin break down. Or even a neighbor that had cancer that suddenly died from an injury while on chemo but you assumed it was because they had cancer. Perhaps you are not even aware of sepsis and the danger it presents to your life or the life of someone you know. Read more “Sepsis – Blood Poisoning Fast Lane to Death!”

The tomato man and gardeningThis week we have a real treat. This Friday I have Craig LeHoullier The Tomato Man on as my guest. You may have heard of him as the North Carolina Tomatoman. Some know him as the fellow who named the Cherokee Purple in 1990. To others, he is the author of the books Epic Tomatoes or Growing Vegetables in Straw Bales, the co-host of Tomatopalooza, a co-leader of the Dwarf Tomato Breeding Project, or just the odd person with a garden where the driveway used to be. He is the tomato nut with a website, a blog, a newsletter (on occasion), and a huge tomato and pepper and eggplant collection. Read more “The tomato man and gardening!”

Off Grid Air-Conditioning!

Off Grid Air-Conditioning

Off Grid Air-ConditioningOn this episode we are talking about off grid cooling. The ideal solution is to have enough solar or wind power that you can run a window unit or potable AC unit. However, we don’t all have that option. So this week we will be talking about some alternate cooling ideas that can be used in a grid-down scenario and are really cheap. Why do this? Because being grind down in the summer is going to suck. Anyone living in the summer heat and humidity that has had an air conditioner break knows what I am talking about. That AC stops working and your quality of life drops fast. We talk about some of the ancient ideas of using fans, airflow, and Read more “Off Grid Air-Conditioning!”
