Indoor Herb Garden

On the same site as the Indoor Composting Bin, there’s a good article on making indoor herb gardens. A good amount of information is in the article for anyone thinking about growing your own herbs. Personally, I was thinking about using technique #6 or #13, as I have a bunch of old Mason jars, but the article has a bunch of ideas for using items around your house that are currently collecting dust. The hanging herbs, like in #10, is a really interesting idea and puts the herbs within each reach when your cooking. 27 Ways To Create The Best … Continue reading

Indoor Composting Bin

Here’s an interesting article I ran across. Here in Arizona, I haven’t had much luck with the large composter in the backyard, but this small-scale indoor composting has potential. Using the coffee can, as they do, not only are you composting, but reusing items that may otherwise end up in the landfill. How to Make an Indoor Composting Bin In 4 Easy Steps

How Important is Sleeping During Survival

(Ed. Note: Here’s another short article by a guest author to help start getting the content rolling again, but it does bring up a valid point. Without sleep, your body isn’t running at peak efficiency. Quite a bit of studies lately tell us getting enough sleep is more important than we probably think it is.) You can stock your pantry up with supplies to last a lifetime, prepare the most foolproof defense plans, and train yourself skills any prepper would be proud of- but none of it will be worth a thing if you deny your body one of the … Continue reading

8 Preparedness and Disaster-Ready Apps

(Ed. note: Social media, and especially social apps on your phone, have become a necessity in the prepper’s ‘bag of tricks,’ so I welcome this guest post from Beth on some of the apps worth considering.) A mobile phone is your lifeline: to the people you love, the places you visit, and the daily services you depend on. Increasingly intelligent smartphones even grant access to Internet search, serving as a portal to the digital realm and a mediator within the ever-widening “Internet of Things.” This is our totally-connected era. But in the interest of preparedness, there are even more practical … Continue reading

Monster Hurricanes

While our hearts, prayers and thoughts have gone out to the victims of Hurricane Harvey, they now turn to those about to be ravaged by Hurricane Irma. And soon after that, possibly the victims of Hurricane Jose, whose current potential path puts it hitting potentially somewhere on the eastern seaboard. Irma has already set new records for lowest pressure recorded and sustaining 185 MPH winds for over 24 hours. Currently, Irma’s path is projected to scrub the east coast of Florida as a Category 4 hurricane and up into Georgia as a Category 2 or 3 storm, then into Virginia … Continue reading

Getting Ready for the Reboot!

Howdy folks, as you’ve may have picked up on social media, primarily Facebook, I am in the (hopefully) final phases of rebooting the podcast. I’m hoping I’ll be able to release the first episode soon, but I’m still hammering out some technical issues regarding recording equipment. If all goes well, the podcast will also be a video podcast, released on Facebook and YouTube. The audio portion will still be available where it also has been, though I’ll need to structure the ‘casts for both video and audio-only listeners. It’ll be interesting to see where this goes, but my plan is … Continue reading

Precious Metals and Bugging Out

Another listener, Richard, wrote in: Perhaps you can answer this question about precious metals and bugging out. Let’s say you need to bug out of the country. Would American Gold Eagles still be valuable outside of the United States or should a prepper buy gold coins of the foreign country they bug out to (e.g. Buy Maple Leafs if bugging out to Canada, Pesos for Mexico, etc.). My good friend, Jeff Bennett, and I have discussed this at length several times over the past twenty years I’ve known him. The simple answer is gold is gold, and those willing to … Continue reading

Business Financial Diversity for Preppers Question

Listener John wrote to ask: I was recently listening to [your podcast about preparing] for a financial collapse [or] economic collapse by having cash on hand, gold and silver, and buying goods. My question is this. I am a business owner and for business purposes keep a large amount of money in a major bank. What is the best way as a prepper to make sure that the government does not take this money under extreme situations? I do not believe having cash on and is an option as it is a large amount. Also, my vendors do not except gold … Continue reading
