Skill Work and Survival Packs
James Walton “I Am Liberty ” Audio player below!
After a deep wilderness excursion, I have a lot to reflect on and a lot to consider. There are skills that deserve more of my attention and others that I feel like I have gotten sewn into my being. Trips into the wilderness are crucial to getting a real read about what you think you are capable of. In fact, these trips are priceless to those of us who have a real desire to improve. You might assume that you have reached a level of proficiency but if you are not tested you just cannot prove efficiency. Read more “Skill Work and Survival Packs”

There is a lot of interest in being self-sufficient these days. People are looking for information on how to grow and store their own food, provide their own meats, go off-grid with solar setups… get out of the system so to speak. We see a lot of these things in videos and on TV, and it all looks so cool. It seems like such an enjoyable way of life. And it really is. But there is a great deal of work involved, lots of back-breaking labor. In the summer time, it’s often sunup to sundown… so much to do. And the animals and gardens don’t stop eating and growing just because you get tired. As the saying goes, “the show must go on”. So what is it really like on a day to day basis?
To get some first-hand accounts about the life of a true homesteader, on this episode of Preparing To Provide I have a very special guest for this show. If you’re familiar with YouTube, this lady is a legend. She does it all. If it has to do with homesteading, she does it, and does it well. Cooking on a woodstove, splitting firewood, gardening and canning, raising and processing animals, she and her family do all of the things that you’d consider to be part of the true homesteading life. From the great state of Tennessee, I’ll be talking with Misty, also known as Misty Prepper to her Facebook friends. If you haven’t seen her YouTube videos, this is the link: http://www.youtube.com/user/mmlrc6atgmailcom Check her out, she’s the real deal. I hope you’ll join Misty and me for some great conversation as we talk about exactly what it means to live the life of a homesteader.
Do you have what it takes to survive an evacuation at a moment’s notice? What would you be left with if your home were destroyed by fire or a tornado? There can be any number of disasters that can force you to leave your home without the time to think. What if you needed to get home from work after disaster strikes? Will you be ready to care for your kids or pets?
This week on The Prepared Canadian, we will take a look at bags…bug our bags, get home bags, everyday carry bags, as well as special consideration for pets and kids. Not just what to put in them, but why you need them in the first place. In addition, we will have two tips for five dollar preparedness, news from the blog and the forum, a fantastic prepper website of the week, and of course, my weekly editorial.
