Holiday Preparedness
Jordan “A Family Affair” Audio player provided in this post!

Holiday PreparednessThe holidays are known for a time of joy, happiness and time with your loved ones. We also think of it as a time of giving and reflection on ones self. But with all the happiness and joy, there is also the fact that anything can happen even during your holiday season. I, myself live in an area were we are dictated by the weather. Two years ago a tornado tore through our neighborhood just three days before Christmas. Did you know that more homes are broken into during the holidays. Our preps are just as important during the holidays as it is any other time of the year. Read more “Holiday Preparedness!”

Reducing Fear by Increasing Security

Reducing Fear by Increasing Security
Ryan & Collin Buford “The Next Generation” Audio player below

Reducing Fear by Increasing SecurityWith Halloween fast approaching, little ones are getting primed for masked adventures. This time of year was always one of my favorites growing up – being able to hide in plain sight, to blend with the crowds, to become invisible. I remember lurking around, testing my costume, pining for booty come Halloween night.

Now, as a parent, I realize how things have changed. Neighborhoods shut down. Lights out mean “move along, stranger” and entire streets opt out of the old tradition. Read more “Reducing Fear by Increasing Security”

Home Security for Kids!

Home Security for Kids
Ryan Buford “The Next Generation” Audio player below

Home Security for KidsGrowing up in a typical American suburb, I remember our threats outside the front door were very different compared to today. There were some outside threats that are similar today, but not nearly as many. We could do simple, everyday things to prevent wolves from crossing the threshold and causing harm. I was raised on the cusp of the latchkey generation where both parents worked and kids were expected to fend for themselves after school until either parents got home. This came with a specific set of rules to be followed and not questioned. Read more “Home Security for Kids!”

Taking Ownership of Self-Defense!

Taking Ownership of Self-Defense!
James Walton “I Am Liberty ” Audio player below!

Taking Ownership of Self-DefenseYou know, a large part of my journey into this prepping world started with the deep understanding that I had to take control of my life. I had always understood financial responsibility but the responsibility to defend was just not clicking. Like many things in life, it clicked when it had to. I remember buying my first heavy bag. It was pale and worn. It was so damned heavy, and it hurt to hit. I remember my knuckles started to change after only a few months. Read more “Taking Ownership of Self-Defense!”

The Micro Bugout for Family Security in a Collapse

The Micro Bugout for Family Security in a Collapse
James Walton “I Am Liberty” Audio player below!

The Micro Bugout for Family Security in a CollapseThe bugout is one of those things that you can deconstruct over and over again. You can add pieces over and over and still find something you left out. The bugout is a massive process that requires many levels of thought and planning before even considering a bag.

On this show we explore a concept that I learned from Dave Jones of Prepping up with the Jones, our Saturday night live show host. In a training course that he conducted, I learned about the difference between war-fighters and family. Now you might think that concept is a little self-explanatory but most preppers have guns and body armor because they are ready to face gunfire. That puts their families at a huge risk.

Homeland Security changes course prepares for Nuclear War!

Homeland Security changes course prepares for Nuclear War!This could be everything; it may be nothing. I recently received a letter from a credible person I know fairly well and the information within should be extremely concerning to anyone who lives in the U.S. or even abroad. With the threat of North Korea, the following information I will be sharing relates to what has currently been on the minds of most people and top priority for many in what to prepare for. I was asked originally by this person, who wishes to remain anonymous for obvious reasons forthcoming, to share this information but not to divulge his personal information or what he does. I replied to his letter stating that without sharing some known knowledge I have as to my source that it may be taken as pure fabrication, opinion, or some kind of conspiracy theory. With that I was granted permission to provide you with, (I will refer to this person as Joe) Joe’s current employer. Department of Homeland Security.
