Preparedness then and now!
Host: James Walton “I Am Liberty”
Its been a tough winter. There has been snow like most haven’t seen and there has been cold like we rarely see. That being said there are rumblings within the masses. I am hearing lots of people reevaluating their preparedness situation. Whereas two to three years ago there were people joking about being a little more prepared in their lives. Now there is only a quiet and uncomfortable laugh when they say things like, “I guess I am going to have to become Continue reading Preparedness then and now!→

Re-Inventing the Wheel? – A review of The Have More Plan
No need to re-invent the wheel, since time began man has endeavored to advance and prepare for life. Preppers, homesteaders, survivalists or whatever label you choose all have much in common. Becoming self-reliant, secure and prepared has for decades been the banner taken up by countless people. This path or gauntlet has been and is still full of pitfalls and follies all too easy to fall victim to. Today, many with a mind to preparedness and self-reliance tend to become so engrossed with what we are doing often we believe it is all a new concept, spinning our wheels attempting to re-invent what has already been learned and done. The roadmap to self-sufficiency has been plotted. Technology has advanced making changes to much of what and how we do things, so life has changed but there is no need to feel you are on uncharted ground.

The elderberries are ripe and the first signs of changing seasons are appearing, soon fall will be on the wind. Join Lynna on The Other Side… A Preppers Path as she brings in the first day of September with a smile and a look at Built to Last My Homestead. Often when thinking of a homestead we envision a country mural with a quaint farmhouse, smoke curling out of the chimney, a wood stack nearby, chickens roaming a green expanse with a barn and other critters milling about. A perfect picture of a sustainable self-reliant home but in reality that is just one take on a homestead.
Are you yearning for that picture of a homestead, wishing away your days and nights, take heart and come realize your homestead right where you are TODAY. They say the home is where the heart is, where you are is your stead, turn your stead into your homestead today, whether you are in the rural wilds, a sprawling downtown urban apartment, a tucked away subdivision, a boat, or any other place you call home. Homesteading is about living life in a self- sufficient, reliable and sustainable method, we think it has to be out in the country somewhere and frankly that is the pinnacle of homesteading but today you can take steps to realize the homesteader in you.
The phone lines will be open and we’ll cover mind set, re-purposing, flexibility and more. Make a date for tonight 8pm central for a good ole discussion on living the prepared way on The Other Side of a Preppers Path. Listen to this show in player below!
It’s been a while since The Homestead Honeys have hosted a 5th Thursday, ‘Anything Goes’ show (…well almost anything), on Thursday, May 30th. You’re invited to call in with any preparedness questions you have. The Honeys hope to inspire you as they talk about their current projects, but are just as eager to hear about what you’re working on. The Honeys look forward to talking with you, and hearing about your efforts to become more self-sufficient and self-reliant. Noreen, Bev and Katz will all be on the air together. There’s just no predicting what twists and turns the conversation might take!
Homeschooling. If you’re a parent – especially a parent who preps, homesteads, or both — chances are you’ve thought about homeschooling. Maybe you’re homeschooling already.
You’re not alone. There’s more joining the homeschooling 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 that means the rate of growth in homeschooling is steadily increasing: It increased 29% between 1999 and 2003, jumped to 36% between 2003 and 2007, and between 2007 and 2011, came in just under a 39% growth rate.

Fox entertains us with their version of Preppers last night on “The Simpsons”. While their representation was not far from the version that main stream media or National Geographic’s “Doomsday Preppers” portrays a Prepper to be it did make this Prepper smile, even laugh. In my humble opinion they were a little closer to the mark.
What disturbs me is the reference to Preppers preparing only for cataclysmic events such as the E.M.P. that swept through Spring Field. This is a possibility that could face any town or even an entire portion of the United States. It has happened and will happen again. Fortunately, as in last night’s episode of The Simpsons it lasted only a few days. What if it lasted a few weeks or a few months? If it had Homer and his family probably would have been better off staying with the misfit group he belonged to.
The Canadian Preppers Network has been up and running for several years now but in the beginning it was a lonely place to visit to say the least. Lack of volunteers and members to the blog and forum made for very little content and because of this, activity from users was non existent.
My son, Tom, founder of American Preppers Network assigned me the task of building this network, providing content, and information that pertained to and appealed to our neighbors in Canada. I would try but knew my help would be little. Between working the A. P. N. State blogs, the main A.P.N. forum as well as the Prepper Broadcasting Network my time for contribution was limited. I could do little more than a rare posting of an article or a bit of news.
One day, while on the A. P. N. forum I noticed a member that happened to live in Canada. His posts, comments and contribution to the forum were everything we look for and admire in a concerned citizen and a Prepper. His name, “Denob” now known as The Prepared Canadian! Could I be so lucky?
Denob aka “The Prepared Canadian” has been a Prepper for many years. His desire to be self-reliant and independent goes far beyond his personal interest. It was quite clear in his activity on the forums that he had a great desire to help others as well as himself and his family. I approached Denob with the idea of running and working the Canadian Preppers Network and in no time we had the right man for the job. It has been just a few short years now and our neighbors in Canada now have a respectable blog with great content.
Recently Denob approached me with an idea. He previously was doing a podcast on another network but due to lack of time had to give it up. Now, time being back on his side he has started doing another podcast and it airs right here on Prepper Broadcasting. Unlike before, this podcast is pre-recorded the day before airing, on Saturdays at 6:00pm/Central.
Below is the player for the original episode of The Prepared Canadian. Because of timing and scheduling we were unable to air this first broadcast. I hope that you will give a listen to our latest host and come back and join us in the chat room every Saturday for a visit with others while listening to Denob “The Prepared Canadian”.
“Okay, you have your place squared away in your quest to become more self-reliant. . . now what? What should you plant first? What animals should you raise? Let’s talk about it on this episode of “The Homestead Honey Hour“! Callers get their questions answered .
Also, Goat Hollow will also be coming on at some point to do a spot to promote his new booklet coming out — listen to this show in player below.
