Best Teacher in Life is Life Itself~
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian”
There is no better teacher in life than life itself. What I mean by this is that actual hands on experience is the best way to gain knowledge and skill sets that you may need. Sure, we can read up about something in books, over the internet, and even ask our friends and neighbors, but getting your hands dirty, so to speak, is the best way to practice that which is being preached to us.
That being said, I am going to take a much different approach this week. Instead of picking a topic such as water purification, or composting, or alternative energy and rambling on for the better part of an hour, I’m instead going to share some of my experiences with you on a range of subjects that I’ve actually gotten into in recent history.
A big part of my prepping recently has been centered around communications. I’ll discuss how and why I used FRS radios, CB radios, and my weatheradio. Also, having just completed my HAM radio course I’ll let you know what to expect if you’re thinking of getting your certificate. Also, I’ll tell you about my experiences with gardening, which has turned out to be a much longer setup period than I though and took a much bigger learning curve than I ever thought I would need. I’ll talk a bit about dehydrating food with my almost new Excalibur dehydrator and how it compares to other methods of food storage like home canning.
Last, but certainly not least, I’ll talk about the two day power failure we went through this fall and tell you about all the lessons I learned about how much energy I needed in comparison to how much I thought I would use. Don’t worry though, it all worked out in the end in regards to fuel storage, and I’ll tell you why.
