 Episode-1045- Every Day “Disasters” and DIY Prepping and The Criminal Mindset with David Nash | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:09:28

Today we have a minor inconvenience when our power went out.  Out came the 6K Troy-Bilt Generator and soon daily emails were being handled and hot coffee was had by all.  I posted a picture of it on Facebook and was amazed how a few fellow preppers sort of crapped on the concept. It was a very few but still it shows a problem with mindset in my view.  To the guy who recommended solar I am not including you in this group of a few, don’t want you getting your panties in a wad or anything, LOL. One person said, “warm water, hot coffee and TV won’t help you when TSHTF”.  My question is if you are not prepared to be comfortable in a routine system failure how on earth can you claim that you are ready for the Zombie Apocalypse?  I will also tell you as a business owner not being able to run your business is a disaster. So in the first part of today’s show I talk a bit about this concept and how it relates to yesterday’s segment on getting started. Then I introduce David Nash of TNGun.com.  David is a full time emergency manger by trade, and an advocate of self-reliance and personal preparedness by avocation.  He is also instructor certified in a variety of topics such as firearms, terrorism response, WMD, and incident command.  He’s written two books, and runs a DIY focused prepper website, based around his training business “The Shepherd School”. Today he joins us first to talk about prepping from a DIY standpoint.  David feels prepping is full of $500 problems, but if you only have $50, you  have to use other ways of making up the difference, we also want to talk about my upcoming book “52 projects for self reliance”. From there we move into some of his experiences as a corrections officer and we take a real look into the criminal and violent mindsets that many people simply cannot seem to get their heads around.  During this period I tell the story of how my grandfather was shot, even though he complied with a robber and how fighting back and running away saved his life.

 Episode-1044- Meals in Jars with Jennifer Ess and Starting Out as a Prepper | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:02:42

From #10 Cans to Meals Ready to Go! I have a great interview with Jennifer Ess of “Rainy Day Food Storage” for you today.  We only talked for about 25 minutes but the ideas and tips and simple formulas are great.  With this information you can turn all those huge cans of long term storage food into meal size ready to go recipes. Jennifer joins us today to discuss why creating meals in a jar makes sense for busy people.  The self life of these meals.  The easy way to make these meals shelf stable.  A simple formula for creating your own recipes and how you guys can free sauce mixes and jar meal recipes from Jennifer. I have also been getting a ton of “I am just starting out” or “I have just found your podcast” emails lately.  Such emails always go on to say “I am overwhelmed and don’t know where to start” in the next sentence.  It is totally understandable. I have been trying to figure out where to fit in a new “getting started” episode and this is a great opportunity.  First Jennifer’s method of breaking down long term storage foods will make that far less intimidating for many people.  Additionally the very basic of “eat what you store and store what you eat” is a great way to get the ball rolling. So I am leading off today with a short segment (about 25-30 minutes) on getting started and then we switch over to Jennifer and take this simple approach to a bit of a higher level with pre planned meals in a jar.  Oh and ladies, they really are pretty too.  I think I said pretty more times in this episode then all others episodes of TSP combine, um that would be two.

 Episode-1043- A Look into the Reality of Violence | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:31:24

First today I take some time to do a follow up on yesterdays show/video where I discussed how the “lock down” plan most of our schools have does not “keep our children safe” as we have been led to believe.  Many people called it Monday morning quarterbacking (such people don’t know the real meaning of the term) and some brought up some very valid “what if” questions. So today I will cover more on the subject.  I also want to be clear I was not advocating “the plan” should be evacuate and only evacuate, just that evacuate needs to be part of the plan.  Right now what most schools have seems to be a two stage plan, “Plan A” hide and wait for help, with no real Plan B, hence Plan B becomes by default, if Plan A fails everyone gets killed. I also give some thought and ideas to improve the odds of survival in these situations, things that can start being done now, at little to no cost.  Lastly we do have some good news out of the CT shootings, one little boy at least who was in one of the rooms the shooter entered is alive and at least physically unharmed.  Why?  Simply put because he ran away. Rory On Location in Baghdad Next we have Rory Miller as a guest to discuss a unfortunately applicable topic today, the reality of violence.  Rory Miller has been a Corrections Officer, a Sergeant, a Tactical Team member and a Tactical Team Leader. Rory has taught corrections and enforcement personnel skills from first aid to physical defense to crisis communication and mental health. His philosophy can be summed up this way… “It is better to avoid than to run; better to run than to de-escalate; better to de-escalate than to fight; better to fight than to die.  The very essence of self-defense is a thin list of things that might get you out alive when you are already screwed.” Resources for today’s show… Members Support Brigade 13Skills.com Join Our Forum TSP Copper TSP Gear Shop Back Yard Food Production – (sponsor of the day) JM Bullion – (sponsor of the day) Story of the Little Boy Who Survived by Running Away Chiron Training – Rory’s Website Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-1038- Understanding the Coming Shifts in Society | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:15:06

Recently I have had to explain many times that TSP is not about “the end of the world” in the way prepping is portrayed in “Doomsday Preppers” and other such mass media things.  I don’t mean on the air, I mean in real life and in some email exchanges.  This is part of why I hate things like Doomsday Non Reality TV. Thing is I don’t really care if someone thinks I am nuts.  Hell my business partner Neil Franklin calls me “Crazy Jack”.  The concern is that when prepping is presented as “extreme” to the masses it actually emboldens them to remain unprepared.  They look at this stuff and think “those people are nuts” and the natural response to take the show to be nothing more then entertainment like Jersey Shore of the bimbo Kardahians. The reality is along with things like natural disasters which we have all witnessed many suffer the consequences of not being prepared for, we have a bigger issue.  The world is not going to end but it is shifting right now in many ways, today we are going to discuss that shift. Join Me Today As We Discuss… How we got here collectively How we got here individually (more important) Some Shifts we Must Understand Population Economics Politics Migration Resource Competition Long Term Cycles Why these things will happen, not might happen What we can do to prepare for them Why we need to be prepared to help more then just “our own” The community you are part of whether you want to be or not Why there is a lot of hope in our future despite a lot of challenge Resources for today’s show… Members Support Brigade TSP Gear Shop Join Our Forum TSP Copper ShelfReliance.com – (sponsor of the day) Free State Project – (sponsor of the day) Win A VIP Ticket to The Liberty Forum Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-1035- How I Would Personally Design a Sustainable Community | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:11:08

We just had Brian Newhouse on with a discussion on Permaville.  Since then I have been reading his book and while I like a lot of it, there are some compoenents I don’t agree with.  Such as having land “where no human may step”. Though my view is if anyone buys land individually or collectively it is their land to do with as they please.  Hell there are definitely some parts of my heavily wooded 5 acres I haven’t stepped on, at least a few square feet of thick brambles or two.  Of course it is by choice, not decree. This got me thinking that I have often described in pieces and parts what my vision for what we could call my own version of Permaville would be like but I have never described it deeply.   So I am going to do that today.  If you hear anything you think is “totally wrong” remember that anyone could build a community anyway they choose if you can find others to willing do it with you. Just to be clear my ideas here would be for my community and any rules or ways of things confined to the borders of a privately held piece of land.  It is in no way how I think others should live.  When it comes to my day to day life I am a libertarian, but when it comes to my ideology, I am a voluntarist, please keep that in mind today. Join Me Today As We Discuss… My community would be started from scratch so all involvement is voluntary There would only be 5 main rules 1st rule would be individuals may use personal property as they choose, period 2′nd rule would be people must attempt to solve problems directly first 3′rd rule seek community arbitration before “contacting authorities” 4th rule no one may harm another or take their property 5th rule common areas have their own rules The concept of private property and collective ownership Each land unit is one “share” of the whole Common areas are managed for community and commercial use Community needs before commercial gain Commercial gain is distributed based on share holdings Expenditures and purchases are voted on by share holders All “community dues” are voluntary Community dues can be sweat, commodity or monetary Functions, Goals and Operations Individual home sites in the 1 acre range Approximately 20% of total land should be common or infrastructure Property should be as off grid as possible (about regulations not polar bears) Lots are privately held and common areas are in a land based trust Common areas are use for community production, education and commercial production This isn’t a full picture just the basic components but I feel a society run this way would be tight nit, highly resilient and solve almost all of its own problems.   Someday I may formalize this into a book and call it Perma Libertyville.

 Episode-1034- Glen Tate on Books 3 and 4 of the 299 Days Series | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:31:17

Book 4 in the 299 Days Series Today you get an opportunity to win a signed proof edition of the third and forth books in the 299 Days series. Not just by Glen but by me as well, make sure to pay attention to how to do that in today’s episode. Glen Tate is the author of the ten-book prepper novel series “299 Days” published by Prepper Press. The books describe an average guy who prepares for, and lives through, a partial collapse of the United States. Glen joins us today to discuss the plot lines of books three and four in the 299 Days book series.  Today we discuss what an initial collapse would look like and why Glen feels it is inevitable based on his close up insider seat within the walls of government. We also discuss the newest changes Glen has made in his personal life, progress on “flipping his spouse” and the reality that many people within government are becoming receptive to both TSP and the message of 299 days. The story line of 299 Days is as follows, In it, the main character, Grant Matson, has a job that allows him to see what’s wrong with government. He realizes he needs to prepare for what’s coming and he does so. His wife, Lisa, is reluctant to prepare because she thinks things are just fine. When the civil unrest and political collapse hit in a dramatic way, it is undeniable that they need to leave their Olympia, Washington home and head to their cabin. But, Lisa is still reluctant; she desperately wants things to remain “normal.” Out at the cabin, a collection of amazing–yet real–people assemble. They create their own community because the government isn’t functioning in their area. They have to work together and, as a community, they manage to achieve some impressive results. Unlike most prepper stories, in 299 Days America suffers a partial collapse. The utilities stay one (due to a spell-binding plot twist) and the government functions in larger cities. People in rural areas still get some food and services from the government, but must increasingly rely on themselves. There are no zombies or cannibalism; 299 Days describes a much more likely partial collapse scenario. Grant’s friends, who work in government, describe how things continue to go down hill in the city and how the government is trying to maintain control. They describe exactly why the government, as big and powerful as it once was, cannot control things. Many in the military and law enforcement step in to stop the bad things; others in the military and law enforcement perpetuate the bad things. After a while out at the cabin, some important visitors arrive and present Grant with a difficult choice. Eventually, the Patriots–the side Grant is on–are forced to take on what’s left of the former government. There is a huge battle. In the end, Grant has an important job at the beginning of the rebuilding. Glen is a moderator on the TSP forum under the name “Heavy G.” He lives and works in Olympia, Washington where he has a front row seat to the corruption in government. Much like the main character in the series, the author is a forty-something resident of the capitol of Washington State, Olympia, and is a very active prepper. He grew up in the remote logging town of Forks, Washington. “Glen” keeps his identity a secret so he won’t lose his job because, in his line of work, being a prepper and questioning the motives of government is not appreciated.

 Episode-1033- Fodder Systems and Brian Newhouse on Permaville | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:21:35

7 Day Growth Barley Fodder at Quartz Ridge Ranch Today we start with some follow up on the Craig’s List ad from yesterday’s show claiming you can grow enough fodder per large animal (say a horse or a cow) for only about 70 cents per head per day.   I was skeptical about the cost of the system and its claimed output. We have had knowledgeable feedback on both sides of the issue and it seems that you really can get the output but the system in the ad is high in cost and not really necessary.  Some folks at Quartz Ridge Ranch built their own fodder system from salvaged parts and a few odds and ends, it works beautifully. The key seems to be the animals are feeding not just on the greenery but the entire root mass, this is how one square can provide 15-20 lbs of high quality feed with a 80% nutrient uptake efficiency vs. about 20% on dry grass.  Tune in to learn more about what does and what does not work in this type of system. Project Munoz – One of Brian’s Eventual Permaville Developments We then switch over to our special guest, Brian Newhouse, author and founder of Permaville.  Permaville offers a new perspective on community development. Including abstracts of over 180 permaculture elements and programs, Permaville details a step-by-step process of how you can redesign your community into paradise. Based on the Permaculture Design Course, Permaville presents a comprehensive philosophy on what people need as it pertains to 12 universal areas of community. The 12 areas of community are water, food, sanitation, healthcare, youth and family, shelter, transportation, environment, energy, education, business and technology. Permaville also includes an extensive pre-design and post-design plan to teach you how to begin and finish a community plan. Permaville is arranged to walk you through the challenges and many potential solutions to improving the physical and social infrastructure of your home or community. If you are looking for a new perspective of what we’re doing on this planet, Permaville is for you.
