The Importance of Owning Precious Metals

I’ve talked to a lot of people about why it’s important to own gold and silver, yet I find that most people don’t fully grasp why. Many of the opponents to owning precious metals for preparedness reasons often cite that because they can’t eat it, it’s worthless as a prep. First, let me just get it out there that I don’t advocate buying precious metals if you aren’t prepared in the other areas, namely food, water, cooking, shelter, defense and so on. Gold and silver aren’t going to do much for you if you’re not prepared to meet the basic … Continue reading

Episode 145 – Developing MAGs and Teams

            Last week, we covered some tips on reaching out to neighbors without tipping your hand that you’re a prepper. Once you find some like-minded people, you’ll probably start thinking about forming a group, as having people you can trust at your back is highly desirable and worthwhile in a survival situation. But, how to go about setting up your newly founded group? In this podcast, I cover the difference between MAGs and Teams, but mostly MAGs.  The MAG, or Mutual Assistance Group, concept is more flexible for most people, especially those preppers that are looking for … Continue reading

Episode 141 – Stages of a Disaster and Trigger Events

              Here are the show notes for Episode 141. Upcoming Election Just as a side note, Keep in mind that regardless of who gets elected as president, they cannot stop the coming economic collapse. There’s too much damage that’s been done to the economy for too many decades for a single administration to be able to fix it. It would be great if the next presidential administration, regardless of who it is, would enact measures to start us in the right direction. Though, we all know that it’s not likely to happen. Just wanted to … Continue reading

Episode 93 – Strategic Preparedness Plan

In this episode, I discuss the Strategic preparedness plan that I’m using to get ready for the dollar collapse and the coming depression. Be true to yourself. Know why you’re prepping and what you’re prepping for.  Don’t let anyone distract you from getting ready. Stock up on everything; especially food and sundries. The coming depression is going to be a long term event; there’s little chance that you’ll be able to stock up and store everything you will need for the duration.  Instead, stocking up now will allow you to buy things while they are still cheap, which should (hopefully) … Continue reading
