Fresh fish to boost your health

Using fresh fish to boost your health!
Host: James Walton “I Am Liberty

fresh fishThere are statistics from the island of Crete that speak of men working into their 90’s! This is fascinating and due in large part to their great diet of locally sourced fishes, red wine, garlic and olive oil. Fish is a powerhouse at a relatively low cost in terms of cholesterol and saturated fats. Not to mention in a survival situation there really is no comparable food that will give you the protein for as minimal an amount of work.

Still, why wait till the world tilts on its access to enjoy great tasting fish. I was Read more “Fresh fish to boost your health”


Evacuation Planning!

Planning for Evacuation!
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian”
EvacuationYour home is your castle and I’m sure, like me, you don’t plan to leave it all behind unless you absolutely have to. Sometimes though, bugging out is the only option, and the decision to do so may be made for you either by evacuation orders or the nature of a disaster.

Simply put, no one can say that they will never bug out, and there are some important preparations you need to have in place before that need arises. Sure, everyone should have a bug out kit ready to go, but proper planning isn’t as simple as it sounds. There are many factors to consider such as where will you go, how will you get there, and how to make sure the rest of your family also meets up with you along the way.

EvacuationThe answers to these questions depend on many factors and there is no one size fits all solution. Bug out plans depend on many factors and need to be adaptable on the fly. This week on The Prepared Canadian  I’ll discuss how to plan for almost any scenario with multiple choices that you must have in place before you are forced from your home.

Among the topics will be planning multiple destinations, mapping out routes and alternatives, having many ways to communicate with other members of your family if you are not all together, as well as some advice for bug out bag contents that will not only help you get where you’re going, but also help restore some sense of normalcy when the dust settles and your normal lives begin to come back into play.

Preparations and Prioritizing!

PreparationsPreparations and Prioritizing! A common ailment among us is that proverbial, that can’t happen to me! However, once you come to the realization that in fact bad things happen, and could happen to you a fire is ignited within the heart and mind of the prepper to begin their preperations. We thirst for information and a driving priority to quench the thirst and relieve the drought very often leads us down the wrong path. In our haste we look for quick relief leading us to the most accessible medium of information readily available to most everyone. The great omnipotent Internet unfortunately is often a purveyor of misleading and blatantly false facts.

A quick click reveals scenarios not even imagined the comet Ison, Fema death camps along with a vast variety of other unlikely scenarios! Really how much should these kinds of speculated disaster factor into your preps? How do you know where to begin and what to believe anymore?

PreperationsIn the world of preparations having the ability to prioritize needs and wants is a vital life skill. This week on The Prepared Canadian  I’ll discuss vetting the information that your research has uncovered and how to prioritize your preparations, but I won’t stop there. Many preppers make the mistake of concentrating on storing up vast amounts of food, while putting off other issues like security and shelter. This sort of tunnel vision becomes a wolf in sheep’ clothing leaving you caught off guard and open to more problems than you ever thought possible.

Keep the wolves away by learning the 6 basic areas of preparedness and how to get started with a little of each, then how to go back and improve each of these areas in rotation, giving you the best chance to have a well-rounded plan that never stops improving and will never let you get caught with your pants down.

Being prepared when the stuff hits the fan!

hitting-the-fanWhen the stuff hits the fan, either for the not so long term or when the end is not in sight, all the goods we have stored will eventually run out. For many, this time will come much sooner than for others who have made at least some preparations. A lot of things can simply be substituted for old world solutions. Take for example toilet paper, which when you run out, can be switched out for washable cloth wipes. However, there are a lot of things that one may run out of that simply can’t be exchanged for another solution. This is where the idea of bartering really comes into play. Sure, you could store up thousands of rolls of toilet paper, but again, it will eventually run out and leave you without your previously enjoyed bargaining power.
Enter the renewable bartering system. There are many things that others will either need for life, want to satisfy addictions, or be unable to provide for themselves. Many of these items can be grown, produced or, in the case of skills, be a never dwindling source of buying power for the well rounded prepper.
This week on The Prepared Canadian I’ll discuss what you can produce in a renewable way for bartering with others. Some can be grown, others can be produced with a little foresight in equipment, and others like skills can be learned.
