Hygiene and being resourceful!

Hygiene and being resourceful!

Hygiene and being resourcefulWhen you talk about threats in a post disaster scenario it’s easy to get wrapped up in the obvious. I wouldn’t begrudge anyone for having fear of roving mobs of the desperate, life threatening conditions of the environment around us or even the very real possibility of starvation. These are threats that people in perilous situations face all over the world. We don’t see them very often close to home but when disaster strikes the threats to our well being come screaming back into reality. Continue reading Hygiene and being resourceful!

Well-Appointed Prepper Homestead

Well-Appointed Prepper Homestead
Host: Renee “The Homestead Honey Hour

What you need . . . . as well as what’s just nice to have

HomesteadThe line between homesteading and prepping can be a blurry one. As a matter of course, prepping often leads to homesteading. After all, being able to provide for yourself and your family on a sustainable, renewable level moves a person ever closer to independence and self-reliance – the ultimate prepping! To this end, it’s important to have both a knowledge base and various skill sets. But just as important to success or failure on the homestead are the tools one has at their disposal. Some “stuff” is absolutely necessary. Other equipment, while making tasks more manageable and your life a whole lot easier, aren’t really necessary and can be purchased later on, as finances permit. Continue reading Well-Appointed Prepper Homestead

Savage survival strength without a gym!

Savage survival strength without a gym
Host: James “I Am Liberty

strengthThere is something uniquely terrifying about crossing the threshold of a gym. The thought of bigger, stronger and more beautiful people than you questioning your presence at “their gym.” All of the new machines and technology you are clueless about. It’s enough to make you quit before you even start.

Though some of this is true the gym can be a wonderful experience but for those of you who don’t want that in your life there are options. I hope this article will help you get fit in 2014.

The question is: How do I get savage, survival strength without a gym? Continue reading Savage survival strength without a gym!

Of Knives and Guns!

Knives and Guns

Of Knives and Guns on The Human Path: Buying, caring for and using knives and guns can be overwhelming to a lot of people. Learning enough practical information about these very important tools and weapons before making a purchase can help save a lot of money and frustration. Join Sam Coffman as he discusses several points to consider when choosing, caring for and using various types of knives for various types of situations. He talks about common questions such as, “How much should you spend for a decent knife?” “Folding blade, multi-tool, fixed-blade or something else?” “Carbon or stainless steel?” “How long and what type of a cutting edge?” “How do you sharpen and care for a knife?” “What difference does the handle, sheath and shape of the blade make for different types of jobs?”

Knives and GunsIn addition to knives, Sam also discusses some gun basics this week. “What are some important considerations prior to spending money on a gun?” “Advantages and disadvantages to rifles vs. pistols and semi-automatics vs. revolvers and bolt-action rifles?” “Where do shotguns figure in to the mix?” “What are some simple training drills you can do at home to improve accuracy and gun handling without even having to spend money on ammo or go to a range, and why is it so important you do these kinds of drills?” “What are some of the common controversies around different caliber ammunition?” “When does caliber matter and when is it irrelevant?” Join Sam as he discusses these and other frequent questions that many people have when wanting to purchase and use a knife and a gun, both for utility and defense.

The Gear, Your Skills, The Wilderness

Mountains I am liberty skillsKnow the gear, your skills, and the wilderness before heading off into the mountains. I want to share on this episode of I Am Liberty what I have learned after a weekend up in the Appalachians. I have learned a lot and might even consider such a camping trip to be an utmost necessity. Not just for deflation of the body and mind but to put your skills and tools to the test. Taking the time to get out there on your own and really see what you’ve got is an important task. I made the trip with my good friend Mike D and aside from really enjoying ourselves we learned some very valuable lessons.

Fire Starting skillsThere were things that worked and things that didn’t. We hiked for about 7-8 miles on our first full day on the mountain and encountered many challenges. We sought out food sources, filtered water and remained cautious of the wildlife around us. I would have to say that the most understated aspect of foraging for wild edibles is the time and energy that goes into processing them. Especially certian roots and nuts. The challenges of facing off against hunger and the trimming and boiling of certain wild edibles was a bit much for two weary travelers.

The cost of this trip was trivial compared to the skills Mike and I learned. As we struggled to hack away and collect enough fire wood for keeping warm through the chilly nights on the mountain top it I was humbled. It even furthered my thoughts on getting efficient in a fallen world the key is to work now to assure that this world doesn’t collapse. Also if it does we want a strong community back bone to aid in these trials. Overall it was a great learning experience. I would highly recommend a bug out to the wilderness to test equipment, skills as well as your own stamina and will.
