Episode 32 – Prepping Basics

Do you know the prepping basics? We all seem caught up in our own various projects or emphases that have to do with prepping, but occasionally it is a good idea to step back and review the basic rules of prepping.

In this episode I go over many of the basics on prepping, including a few chestnuts from the prepping world, like “two is one and one is none.”  I discuss the basics of water, food, weapons, medicine, and many others. This was especially fun: at the end, I discuss the importance of getting a survival retreat in the country, with the added benefit that it could be a good real estate investment — then I provide a real life example!

According to ready.gov, this month is National Preparedness Month, so we all need to be good, obedient citizens and follow the government’s lead, and be prepared.

Here are links of some of the items I discussed:

Episode 25 – Unusual Preps With Author Ron Foster

I had a wide-ranging conversation on unusual preps with prepper author Ron Foster.  Foster has published 62 prepping books (!), including his latest, Old Farts Survival Guide. This is a great book on prepping skills, and despite the $25 pricetag, it is well worth it and should be included in every serious prepper’s library. This book is also something you could leave on your living room coffee table, and because of the number of photos and diagrams in it, many of your family members will thumb through the book and quickly learn some prepping skills.
