 Episode-1236- Plans for the TSP Homestead and Upcoming Workshops | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:15:54

TweetI am going to continue with some fun stuff that is informative and not so deep into the world of politics, economics, etc.  Today I am going to line out the planned projects for our 3 acre property and what they will be doing for us long term. The first principle of permaculture in my mind is “observe and interact” and while interact is part of it, to me on a new property about a year of observation is really ideal for the planning process.  At this point I have been on my property for about 10 months.  I now know it intimately.  I know where the winds blow including when they don’t line up with the “official information” from the weather service. I know where my soils are a foot deep and where they are only a few inches above the limestone reef that is under this part of north Texas.  I know where water flows and where it pools.  I know the species that do well here on their own in all seasons.  I  have seen the results of my work with my animals an I know it works.  Islands of deep green now exist in pastures that are tired and mostly brown. I have had the great fortune to have my intern Josiah Wallingford of Bring of Freedom on property now for 3 months to aid in my planning.  We now have a much deeper understanding of many of our subtle contours.  Then we did an urban design workshop.  30 students received certification in Urban Design and we got amazing ideas for a small space design on the property.  Josiah and I have expanded these plans and it is all coming together.  Today I will do my best to explain our future plans and how this homestead is going to be transformed over the next year into a holistic system that is self supporting and will generate its own fertility. Join Me Today As We Discuss… The tactical greenhouse with a “climate battery” 6000-7500 gallons of catchment tanks are going in, just for starters Why we will use some pumps in our systems, yet we will not “need” them Taking swales to an extreme level even on land anyone would call flat Road catchment diversion, more water then we could ever need Cell grazing of geese and chickens in our system, perhaps sheep next year Building a 60,000 gallon pond where you can’t go below grade and making it self sustaining Making hugul swales where we can only dig about 2 inches into the soil Building top soil at a massive rate in the interswales Berms, berms and more berms A food forest going in this spring, 40 productive trees, 280 support trees The contour beds are due to become a massive “micro food forest” This is just the beginning!

 Episode-1235- Fun, Cheap and Easy Gun Projects and Tricks | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:30:40

TweetBuild Your Own M1 Dummy Mag for the 10/22 Okay guys and gals, October has kicked my butt.  First 10 days in Colorado, then the seminar at my homestead, then the earthworks course in Louisiana.  I need a fun and easy show and I bet with all the crap going on with the government, the economy and other things many of you do too. Today I am going to discuss some cool gun projects you can do and exactly how to do them.  None require any advanced gunsmithing knowledge or master wood working skills to do. We will also discuss some cool and easy to install accessories and where to get them and why they are actually worth having.  A little bit on reloading, including my special 44 Mag “quiet load” and even a tiny bit of airsoft shooting. This should be a fun show, it won’t be a 100% how to show but it will give you a ton of fun projects, let you know what is possible and get you thinking.  It may also give you a few projects for those long winter nights when many of us get a bit of cabin fever in January and February.  It sounds crazy but those days are just around the corner. Join Me Today As We Discuss… The easiest money saver, rehabbing old break action shotguns The “rubber washer trick” with the NEF/H&R break action rifle Conversion of the NEF to 357 max or “k-hornet” Getting started reloading with the “lee loader” it fits in a shirt pocket The 22 LR “flat point” jig Restoration of Military Surplus Arms (without ruining them) Turning a mosin nagant into a “scout rifle” Creating in stock survival kits Starting a fire with a rifle Cut shells for the shot gun (slugs on demand) Convert a 10/22 to an M1 Carbine Clone Build a black powder rifle from a kit Build a “survival sling” from leather or paracord Loads so quite you don’t need a suppressor Build simple “airsoft” reactive targets for cheap or suburban practice Resources for today’s show… The Year 1235 Join Our Forum 13Skills.com Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom Shop for TSP Silver TSP Gear PermaEthos.com Back Yard Food Production – (sponsor of the day) Fortress Defense Consultants – (sponsor of the day) Making the NEF Rifle Better – Includes Rubber Washer Mod NEF Rifle List on Yahoo NEF Barrel Accessory Program Lee Loader Rifle Lee Loader Pistol Great thread on an 10/22 to M1 Conversion Project Stock for the 10/22 M1 Conversion Tech Site Set for the 10/22 30 Carbine Dummy Mags for the 10/22 SurplusRifle.com Load Data for the 44 Special Load I Mentioned Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-1227- Thoughts on Oath Keepers Going “Operational” | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 0:58:14

TweetIf You Have Served Before, Serve Now. Recently Stewart Rhodes published an article on the Oath Keepers website called, Oath Keepers is Going “Operational” by Forming Special “Civilization Preservation” Teams. I find the general theme to be very positive, however many very clearly got the wrong message. In his article, Stewart says, “We urge you to presume the worst in the short term, and to work in three or four month sprints – assume that a collapse will be triggered this fall/winter and do all you can to get yourselves and your communities ready.“ Sadly many people read that to say, “The end is coming in 3-4 months and we have intel saying that is the case“ THAT IS NOT what it said.  I also know directly from Stewart that it isn’t the case. In fact before reading the article myself I told Stewart he needed to be very careful in what he was saying.  Frankly I thought that is what the article said because getting ready for my trip I had yet to read it myself.  Frankly I thought this because I had received dozens of hysterical emails saying that was the case.  When I read the article I did my typical, “damn, how do people draw these conclusions from this?”, that I do about 20 times a day. Now blogs and alternative news sights are fricken buzzing with “the end is near” BS and using Stewart’s article as “proof” and spinning it vs. reporting on it.  The fact is this is very important and it is sad man in alternative media seem just as addicted to perception bias and yellow journalism as the lame stream media. Today as a founding member of Oathkeepers and personal friend of Mr. Rhodes I intend to clear some of the confusion up, talk about what is great about the plan and what might make it better. Join Me Today As I Discuss… The bad timing that caused much of the confusion What happens when non military minded individuals read military thought The basics of the plan, teams of Two communications experts Two medical experts Two engineers Two food reserve specialists Four to six scouts Logistical support team of Peace Officer Liaison and Sheriff /posse Team Military and National Guard Liaison Neighborhood Watch Team Local Government Team Intelligence Team What Oath Keepers thinks “the plan” is by establishment  Intentionally trigger a catastrophic economic collapse as an economic “neutron bomb” Let the country descend into chaos Ride in like the cavalry, to “save” us by means of martial law and scrapping our constitution once-and-for all What I think the plan is Cling to their paradigm as long as they can and stave off collapse Accept that collapse is inevitable and plan for it Watch the country descend into chaos Ride in like the cavalry, to “save” us by means of martial law and “not letting a crisis go to waste” Net results are the same, timelines differ greatly Problems with the Oath Keepers Team Plan People don’t “think” sufficiently, they fail to adapt We are not surrounded by SF style people We need to think in two phases, organize then “draftee” the holes The com specialists are good with gear, not with words Food reserve specialist assumes reserves will exist, need to add procurement The good of the plan It is a great template, if people will use it and adapt to what they don’t have It has people talking and thinking differently, made the crisis real It can work IF we can bring in MORE Oathkeepers with real skills It focuses on working with authority as long as said authority keeps their oath It is preemptive It is a great kick in the ass Resources for today’s show… The Year 1227 Join Our Forum 13Skills.com Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom Shop for TSP Silver TSP Gear PermaEthos.com Knife Kits – (sponsor of the day) Back Woods Home Magazine – (sponsor of the day) Oath Keepers Article This Show is Based On Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thought[...]

 Episode-1223- Starting the Journey from Grasshopper to Ant (orig epi 298) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:13:18

TweetToday we dip into the archives again.  Episode 298 was originally published on Oct. 15th, 2009.  By that time the TSP philosophy and components of it like the inverse relationship between impact scale and probability were well fleshed out. Today will will lay out 20 steps to take as a person who has just decided that it is time “to do something” but isn’t quite sure what that “something” is. Even though today is done with the new person in mind I think it will help everyone sort of recenter on the core of what is the most important things to make sure you have accomplished. I have also created a special commercial free version of today’s show for sharing with others who you want to get thinking about preparedness. That version can be found on our forum here. Tune in today as we discuss Start with the old fable of the grasshopper and the ant The first thing you do is assess the situation and stay calm Journal your spending and your eating Write a plan for debt elimination and begin creating an emergency fund Put together a basic documentation package Assemble a BOB for each family member (cheap and fast the first time around) Inventory your pantry over a week or two (how much food do you have at your low point) Begin storing up a 30 day supply of food you will eat anyway Begin assembling a low cost 30 day long term storage supply Determine where you would go if you had to leave and go at least 50 miles from home Make plans for how you would help elderly parents or other family members Update your resume and be prepared to loose your job on any given day Avoid focusing on any individual coming event or scenario Plan a garden and start getting ready to plant (depending on the season) Learn about disaster commonality (it is not about the disaster it is about loss of support systems) Learn about disaster probability (Personal-Localized-Regional-State-National-Global) Determine your most probable “personal”, “local” and “regional” Start window shopping for “country land” or an “urban homestead” Think of the children, won’t someone please think of the children (seriously think of your children) Assess your “normal preparations” Take ownership of your plan and your life Resources for today’s show… The Year 1223 Join Our Forum 13Skills.com Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom Shop for TSP Silver TSP Gear PermaEthos.com Bulk Ammo – (sponsor of the day) Safecastle Royal – (sponsor of the day) Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-1222- TSP Classic Basics and Thoughts on Reloading (orig epi 75) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 0:53:25

TweetWhile in Colorado I am running reruns but the intros are new only the body of the show is from the archives.  This one goes all the way back to Episode 75. Today I took a shot at a show on reloading. It may be a bit fragmented as discussion a detailed process with out video or images is difficult, but many have asked for a reloading show so we now have one. Tune in today to hear… The basic process of reloading Why custom ammo is more accurate and what custom means to a reloader How you can load rounds and combination of components you can’t get from Why reloading saves money Thoughts on not over doing your fist purchases How powder is measured by volume and checked by a scale The importance of origination and a system for safety Recommended manuals that give easy to understand instructions and good data My recommendation on the Lee Anniversary Kit as a starter Choosing a single stage press when you start out Thoughts on a progressive press for high volume loading The survival value of reloading A bit on casting your own bullets The value of “reduced loads” Load Data for my Reduced 44 Special Load (From the Lee Manual – First Edition, Do NOT reduce further) This is a 44 Special Load from an older Lee Manual. Do NOT reduce any further! 300 Grain Lead Bullet Standard Large Pistol Primer 9.8-11.5 grains of H227 I settled on an even 10 Grains of Powder. In a 20 Inch barreled 1894 Marlin 44 Magnum it is quieter then most Break Barrel Pellet guns and will penetrate 7 inches of solid pressure treated lumber at 25 yards and is accurate to about 50 yards before the low velocity takes over and drop becomes extreme. Similar loads should be possible for rounds like, 357 Mag – Try light 38 Spc Loads 45 Colt – Try Cowboy Action Loads to start out Resources for today’s show… The Year 1222 Join Our Forum 13Skills.com Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom Shop for TSP Silver TSP Gear PermaEthos.com Sawtooth Tactical – (sponsor of the day) Ready Made Resources – (sponsor of the day) Lee Reloading Tools Lee Anniversary Kit The Lee Loader Lee Videos on Reloading – GREAT RESOURCE RCBS – Good Videos on this Site Too MEC Hornady Lyman Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.
