Gadgets & Gear needed to survive!
Highlander “Survival & Tech Preps“ Audio player provided!

Gadgets & Gear needed to surviveIn the event of something happening, what gadgets & gear do you have? What do you think you need? I will go over some of the items that we should consider for survival for convenience, or just for comfort. A lot of what we do store is really not a necessity. I think we want our cake and want to eat it to, which is human, but we have to have a different mindset. Some of the niceties might not be an option.

Are you training to Survive or to Kill?

Are you training to Survive or to Kill?
James Walton “I Am Liberty” Audio in player below!

Are you training to Survive or to Kill?We often get the best look at ourselves when we separate from what we do on a daily basis. In survival and preparedness heavy introspection is so important. It’s a lonely and oftentimes thankless effort that only shows its benefits in the worst of times. You get a warm feeling when you can provide comforts in a situation that is often void of such. Continue reading Are you training to Survive or to Kill?

Lynn “A Preppers Path

disaster -collageDisaster Happens, it’s a given whether man-made or natural, we can pretty much know that at some given time or another we or a loved one will have to endure and survive a disaster. Often times when discussing such things the conversation can take on some pretty dramatic terms, just like a disaster and even talking about what to do can be overwhelming to even those experienced in being prepared.

Let’s Be Rational

Let’s Be Rational
Host: Jackie “Apocalypse Nana

Let’s Be RationalThis week Apocalypse Nana asks one of the most important questions at end-times: To ration or not to ration in your bunker? Who isn’t going to think of this question during an apocalypse? Surely, everyone will. Starvation and survival has everything to with rationing food in your bunker, right? Absolutely. A ration is a fixed amount of food allotted to persons in military service or to civilians in times of scarcity, usually during wartime. How do you ration a minimal amount of food? Who will survive and who won’t? Continue reading Let’s Be Rational

Natural instincts, realizing & using!

Natural instincts, realizing & using!

Natural instincts TigerPrepping, realizing our natural instincts! The natural instinct to prepare, to be aware of what is happening around us is inherent in every living creature on this planet. However, man like no other living organism has the ability to modify his instinct without knowing he is doing so. Animals exist, survive, and thrive on their instincts. While man not only exists with the will to survive and thrive he also looks to consciously learn and expand the knowledge he has to better the conditions in which he lives.

Primitive Skills, Putting Them to the Test: Do you have what it takes?

Primitive Skills, Putting Them to the Test: Do you have what it takes?
Host: Sam Coffman “The Human Path”

Primitive Skills  Thanks to television and the internet, there are a lot of misconceptions today about what it actually takes to survive in the woods. In our first-world environment in North America, we grow up now without any real connection to the amount of work it takes to survive, let alone any kind of connection to our natural environment itself.

Primitive SkillsAfter returning from the deep jungle in Nicaragua and observing the indigenous Indians of that region, I feel it is important to call attention to the concept of primitive living skills. While it is one thing to learn the skills, it is an entirely different concept to have to live off of them (especially alone) indefinitely in the wilderness. If you are in a survival situation where you must live off the land, what are the most important basic tools you would want to have with you? What do you think are some of the most important implements you would need to make? Is the order of basic necessities (food, water, shelter, fire, security) always the same? How important are the mental aspects of survival and is there any way to train or improve that part of yourself? Continue reading Primitive Skills, Putting Them to the Test: Do you have what it takes?

Being Prepared To Survive

Being Prepared To Survive
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian

In the end, I think I brought myself to a revelation as to just what it means to be a prepper

PreparedNever have I been so hard pressed to come up with a show description as I am now. When I first sat down to record this episode, it was intended as another general chit chat type of show covering an eclectic collection of thoughts on various topics. What it turned out to be was so much more than I ever expected. The show went from explaining why we shouldn’t concentrate so much on specific possible events and focus simply on losing systems of support to how we define ourselves as survivalists or preppers and why using a word and it’s dictionary definition is simply not possible.

PreparedDuring this week’s show, I’ll also talk about “American Blackout”, which was supposed to be an episode all to itself, but I felt that it could be condensed into another thought process, so long as the biggest lesson to be learned was brought to the forefront. Also, I bring into the conversation the idea of current events as a prepper/survivalist raison d’etre, and how this is really a matter for all people to be concerned with, not as an issue for us alone against the sheeple.

In the end, I think I brought myself to a revelation as to just what it means to be a prepper, or a survivalist, or a whatever you want to call yourself and the voyage throughout the show is neither straight, nor centered on any one specific topic. I hope that you seriously listen to all the individual topics that I started out with and see just how it all rolled out into something I certainly never expected it to.

The Austramerican (Australian) West

The Austramerican (Australian) West on “They Were Preppers
By John Greemway
Reading By: Doug aka GoatHollow

AustralianTo go into the Australian West is to go into the past. Yet wherever you go, however remote in distance or in time, America and its own West intrudes. A year ago I went to the edge of the Old Stone Age with a party of Australian scientists to study the water metabolism of the aboriginal natives in the hope of determining how these most primitive of people had adapted their bodies to survive in conditions of great heat and aridity. One particularly hard day, when the temperature stood at 120 degrees in the water bag, I sat in the red dust of Australia’s dead heartland trying desperately to convince myself that I was in the same world as my university halfway around the earth. Except for the main body of natives camped near the half dozen tin-an-transite shacks of the government station twenty-five miles away, our party of seven whites and two dozen natives was the largest group of human beings in two-hundred thousand square miles of desert so barren that – as the Australians say – you could flog a flea across the plain and see him every time he jumped.

AustralianThe adult natives were asleep in the sand, unmindful of the bush flies and the dust settling in their eyes and ears, but a handful of children played in our waterhole and hunted for lizards to trade for hard candy from the lolly jar.” I had recorded some of the strange mythic songs from their parents earlier in the day, and since the tape recorder was still set up, I asked the children to sing some of their songs for me. They gathered around the microphone, naked, knowing no word of English except “lolly” never having heard a radio or a record player, or seen a movie or television; yet after a moment of conspiratorial giggling, they sang out, loud and confidently: Daby, Daby Crocka, kingada wile frontee.
