My Many Prepping Failures

My Many Prepping FailuresI have always learned more from my failures than from my successes. Most of the time, real success just blows up your head and you spend more time fighting the ego than enjoying the success. For me the dark deep pits of failure provide me with time to review and calculate why things went so wrong. Of course, you cannot be considered a true failure unless you stop there. I am a stubborn man and whether it takes me 5 years or 5 minutes I rise up from the ashes and turn my failures around. Continue reading My Many Prepping Failures!

A Preppers AmenitiesI was in front of the keyboard today wondering what in the world I would ring my audience’s ears about this week. I was looking for something to prepare for. I was looking for a threat. Then I started thinking about a new piece of equipment to talk about. To be honest with you I was struggling a bit. Then I decided to flip this thing on its head. Why concern myself with the evils of prepping? Let’s spend some time on the good life that preppers have. Continue reading A Preppers Amenities

5 Year Anniversary of I Am Liberty

5 Year Anniversary
James Walton “I Am Liberty” Audio in player below!

5 Year Anniversary of I Am LibertyIt’s been five years since I first raised the mic and began talking and prepping. I will never forget the moment I realized just how thin the line was between civility and chaos. It was like suddenly being transported to the icy plains of the Midwest in the dead of winter. I was surrounded by two big dogs, a beautiful wife and a newborn child but I felt so alone and it was terrible. In that moment, I knew it was time for one thing and one thing only. HARD WORK.

Does Prepping Make us Paranoid?Earlier shows I’ve talked about how paranoia can be a part of prepping and is it good or not? Well this show is about “Does Prepping Make us Paranoid?” This is a simple question, with a harder answer.

Spring Cleaning Those Preps!

Spring Cleaning
Bob Howkins “APN Report” Audio in player below!

While snow is on the ground in the grips of winter, for me that means spring cleaning.

Spring Cleaning Those PrepsI confess, I’m a bit of a hoarder. There’s a very fuzzy border between stocking up & stock piling & I tend to lead more to the “pile” side of things. I keep cupboards filled, but I tend to also fill the rest of the house with stuff I don’t really need or worse, neglect to put away. Continue reading Spring Cleaning Those Preps!

The Road Less Traveled!

The Road Less Traveled!
Host: Noreen “The Homestead Honey Hour”

roadSome of you may know the popular poem of the same name, penned by American Icon Robert Frost. It is a beautiful piece of prose that always makes me think. It really is a fine prescription for how to live your life.

In this chosen lifestyle, no matter what you like to call it, prepping, homesteading, preparedness, survivalism, we are all choosing the road less traveled Continue reading The Road Less Traveled!

Goals & resolutions a better wayNew Years is upon us! For some, it’s party time, bidding goodbye to one year & ushering in a new. And for others, it’s when we set resolutions for ourselves, and steadfastly try to stick to them… at least until the temptation becomes too great. And that’s what this show is all about.

One of the most fragile things is a New Years Resolution. So often it’s an unplanned oath that gets swept Continue reading Goals & resolutions a better way!
