Episode 17 – Sneak Preview Of New Post-Apoc Book

I this episode I discuss my previous post-apocalyptic book, entitled EMP: The End Of The Grid As We Know It, available at Amazon at this link here, and the sequel to it, which is coming out soon.  I discuss some of the challenges I had in writing both books, including not making an end of the world book too graphic.

Then I include a reading of parts of the sequel book, which will be released late summer or early fall.  The setting in the part of the book included in this reading is this: it has been three days since the EMP attack on New York City, and the protagonist, David, has decided to stay in town and help out (I advise against this, BTW).  David works for the New York City Office of Emergency Management, and he is working on clearing the stalled cars from the Brooklyn Bridge so that food can be brought in from Long Island to feed the people of Manhattan.

At the end of the reading of part of the sequel book, I have an announcement about something I will be giving away soon, available for a limited time.

Anyone can “follow” me on Amazon at this link here, and that way you will be updated by Amazon whenever I have a new book sold on Amazon.

Episode 15 – Disgusting Preps

In this episode I go through the most disgusting of all the preps that are found in my two non-fiction prepping books, Dirt Cheap Valuable Prepping, and Dirt Cheap Valuable Survival Retreat.  And boy, is this episode disgusting!  Rated “R” for Revolting!

Below are some helpful links for this episode:

Travel bidet with carrying case, for $10 on Amazon.  Much better to stock up on these than trying to stockpile toilet paper.

Here is a link to a pair of (post-childbirth) mentrual cups for $16, including  carrying case.  (The pre-child-birth size is at the link here.)  These are so popular with women, it might be a good idea to use them before any emergency makes tampons unavailable.

Shop rags for $10 on Amazon.  A good last resort for many uses.

Skin fungus cream with a unit cost almost as cheap as what I just bought at Walmart.

Here is the link to a website of a company that sells and delivers pretty basic porta-potties for as low as $700.  They have a ton of options, including a dump valve and a trailer.  Shipping is offered.  This company may or may not work for you, but it is a great place to start.

Rid-X is great treatment for septic tanks.  Be a supporter of culture!

Snake-Catcher for $30 sold on Amazon.  These things are great.  I saw one in action and it was very impressive.

Here is a round-head shovel sold on amazon for $29, which is more than you would pay for a similar shovel at your local hardware store or Home Depot.  But this shovel is very well-made, and an extra-long handle will enable you to chop at a poisonous snake from a longer distance.

Equate brand anti-diarrheal pills.  These would be great to stock up on — very helpful if you eat some bad food.

Equate brand laxative pills.  Same here.

Here is a link to the cheapest odorless garlic pills on Amazon.  $8 for 250 softgels.

I can’t say I have tried these, but here is a link to some IntestinePro pills that might work to cleanse your stomach of parasites.  $25 on Amazon for 30 servings.  Those who have used these pills are very happy with them.

As I wrote in my book, snakes will often get tangled up in bird netting that is put on the ground.  That would make it easier for you to catch and dispatch any unwanted snakes.

Episode 13 – My Bug Out Bag Inventory

In this episode I review the contents of my bug out bag and share some unusual ideas on bug out bags.  I believe it is okay to over-pack a bug out bag, enabling you to discard unneeded items depending on the disaster at hand.  I also value comfort items and good-tasting food, to keep up morale.

Here are some of the items I discuss in this episode:

Black Backpack

Pup tent

Tire Iron (18-inch Wrecking Bar)

Machete (Gerber Gator Machete With Black Nylon Sheath)

Gerber Folding Shovel + Case

Stansport Collapsible Water Bag 2 Gallon

Berkey Sports Water Filter

Mainstay Emergency Wafer, 3600 Calories

Esbit Camping Cook Set

Gerber Multitool With Sheath

EDC (Maxpedition E.D.C. Pocket Organizer)

Knife and Sheath (Gerber Bear Grylls Ultimate Knife, Serrated Edge)

Spork (Light My Fire Titanium Spork)

Flashlight 250-Lumen Dorcy Weatherproof With Battery Indicator

Rain Poncho Camouflage

Lifestraw

Red Nylon First Aid Bag (Voodoo Tactical MOLLE)

Quickclot sponge

Quickclot powder

Triple Antibiotic First Aid Ointment

 

Don’t forget to get some very small pill containers at The Container Store.  This will save space in your bag.

Mountain House pouches, and the MRE’s mentioned here can be bought at Emergency Essentials or Ready Made Resources.
