Reducing Fear by Increasing Security

With 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.
Building the Baddest Bug-out Bicycle!

The bicycle is a child’s first form of tangible freedom. It is a rite of passage and allows the young boy or girl a sense of approval from parents to be adventurous, self-reliant and brave.
That first successful sendoff is a bittersweet moment for both parent and child. For the child, that pulse of confidence and stability is a moment of self-worth that lasts a lifetime. For the parent, it is often the first sign that as parents we need to let them go and learn on their own. And when they take a fall on occasion, we have an opportunity to help them move past the bumps and scrapes and encourage them to get back on again. Read more “Building the Baddest Bug-out Bicycle!”

Contact 12 o’clock, 200 yards! Alpha team move up! Bravo team, why the hell isn’t your weapon up? Get those guns talking boys! Let ‘em have it! *BOOM*
Those words reverberate through my mind like the echo of a 50 cal over an open desert. Bouncing around in my head, reminding me of the successes and failures of my recent training. Forcing me to reflect on my experiences through the tone of a gentle ringing in my ears, and the faint glow of Night-Vision-Green inside my mind.
So let’s get past the fancy words, and straight to the truth.
If you’re a prepper, you’re going to die when SHTF. That’s it. Clear and simple. You’ll be providing thousands of dollars of brand new gear, albeit blood stained, to people who out-trained you. Read more “First hand training in the art of NIGHT VISION.”
This first airing of “Foraging for Life” will cover how to identify what region you live in and what types of foraging is available. Where to find identification materials that are suited to your lifestyle and why that is important. Learning the seasons of different edibles and looking for places to “treasure hunt” within your area. Being safe while gathering and foraging etiquette.
We hear it all around us, “Times are tough, prices are outrageous, everything is going up except my wages…” Would you like to learn how to gather food from the wild for free? Have you ever asked yourself, ” If I got lost in the deep woods without provisions, how would I survive?” The senses can be trained to pick up on things that most walk past. Foraging, gathering, gleaning; whatever you care to call it, can be a life saving skill. I sometimes refer to it as treasure hunting! I have at times set out to find a particular food, weather it be berries or fungi, and came home with wild medicinal herbs, pine pitch or cones. I’m amazed at the vast array and abundance that our planet provides for us naturally…we just have to learn to read her labels of identification. Wouldn’t you love to know how to preserve for later use that which you have just gleaned from nature? I have lots of wonderful tips and procedures, recipes and tricks of the trade to help you find a wealth of useful skills to keep your treasures stable for later use. I invite you to join me in Foraging For Life to discuss and share the skills and knowledge of gathering wild edibles. Not only will we expand our ability to identify and use that which nature supplies, but we will also strengthen our sense of self-reliance by shedding some light on the practice of foraging. I gladly welcome any of your experiences and knowledge, please feel free to come check out the show and share them with me. Hope to see you there!
