To 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.
The 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.

One of the simplest ways to prepare for disaster is to buy and stock up on ready-made foods and gear. There is nothing wrong with this unless it is your only strategy or unless you are only interested in being able to survive for a week or two. However, during any kind of disaster that might last weeks, months or indefinitely, it is necessary to have a longer-term plan. This involves sustainable food and sustainable, effective communications.
The most iimportant thing to remember about long-term prepping is that there is a point where skills actually start to trump gear. Nobody can live indefinitely off of nothing but supplies if there are no skills to allow for sustainable resources. In the case of food, this realistically should include meat. Sustainable meat is very easy to provide in a number of ways, but one of the easiest and most convenient for the prepper is backyard rabbits.
Just like sustainable food, the prepper also should be concerned with sustainable communications. That is, not only radio systems that work and have range, but also are powered by a sustainable, off-grid power source. If you could only choose one type of radio to become involved with as a prepper, learn about and operate, it should probably be HAM or amateur radio.
Join Sam Coffman on The Human Path in today’s broadcast as he explains some tips and tricks for back yard rabbits as a sustainable food source, and also discusses various forms of post-disaster communication to include amateur radio.
With the military taking control in Egypt. It brings real life examples of the horrors that can come to fruition under military rule. I believe ousting the Muslim Brotherhood is the best thing for Egypt but the body count is over 800!
Tonight on I Am Liberty we are going to talk about a Military coup in America. Not our military as I believe it would disband but maybe a NATO and/or other forces. What would you do? Give me 5 preps that would be essential in surviving a military takeover in this country. Would you run and survive in a remote portion of land? How would you defeat the technology of today?
Appropriately we have John from the company Never Established on to talk with us about this as well. Never Established has taken some great historical emblems and redesigned them for his clothing. But I didn’t bring him on solely based on his clothing line. His mission on his website reads like this: Here at Never Established we hold a deep seated respect for America and the Constitution that made her a shining beacon of freedom and prosperity in the world. Unfortunately, our “leaders” have lost respect for both the Constitution and the people they are supposed to represent.
I think he will have a lot of great input to ad to our conversation. HUGE night! Its I Am Liberty don’t you dare miss it.

Many of you realize that a lot of emergency gear can be found at local hardware, camping, and department stores. But do you really know how well that stuff is going to work when you really need it?
As you know by now, I spent last weekend at the provincial meet in Huntsville, Ontario. For accommodations I decided to take the family camping for 3 nights at Arrowhead Provincial Park. Not only was this an inexpensive way to accommodate a family of six, but was a great opportunity to test out some gear. I had lots of stuff with me that I wanted to put through the paces and was impressed with some, and disappointed with others. This week on The Prepared Canadian, I’ll share my findings with you on everyday equipment that you may be considering for your emergency gear.
Join me as I discuss camp stoves, kerosene lanterns, various battery operated lamps, and how I used an inverter connected to my car battery to supply power to an unserviced campsite. Listen to this show in player below!
We all know the importance of preparing for a disaster, but who all is in your group? Do you have a medic or a vet, a dentist or a seamstress? On this Monday, June 3rd edition of The Gun Show, Dave Womach teams up with his brother Chet for a full out break down of Prepping Plans, and who should be in your group. How do you plan for all aspects, from building horticulture food forests, to How to Meet Your Neighbors?
This week on The Prepared Canadian, we’ll take a look at power. No, not the political type, but how t have enough power to get by during an emergency situation. A simple inverter, a few extension cords, some rechargeable batteries along with some common sense and power saving tips will get you through most of what will ever happen to you as far as power failures go. No, you won’t survive the rapture or a global EMP strike, but that’s not what this episode is about. Power from your car will give you all the electricity you need to get through power outages that last from 1 day to a few weeks.
But, before we go into that, I have a bit of a rant that I just HAVE to get off my chest. So pull up a chair and have a listen.
This Monday on The Gun Show learn what you need to survive in a real life hell!
When people think about TEOTWAWKI or SHTF, they envision a lawless world full of looting and chaos. They picture a victorious scenario of winning all the gunfights, and their family, friends, and neighbors all end up unscathed.
After listening to 1LT Harry Golden last week, you know that couldn’t be further from the truth. This Monday, April 22 on the Gun Show, meet Sgt. Thomas A. Middleton, a combat medic who served the front lines while honoring God and his fellow man. Take a moment to get inside the head of a man with so much integrity, that he would actually tend to his enemy’s injuries once the battle ended. Learn about what you need to know to survive in a real life hell. He’s been there, done that, and even written the book. Listen to this show and read more!
