Episode-931- 15 Questions and Answers on Preparedness

The Survival Podcast show

Summary: Today I Answer 15 Questions I am Always Asked. In 2008 when people asked me what I did if I mentioned this show they always seems a bit taken back, guarded and looked at me like perhaps my tin foil hat was showing a little.  Today though things are different, when I meet people at the farmer’s market, the compost facility, the supermarket, business meetings etc. and they ask what I do I am now greeted with interest and questions. Some of these questions are almost universal, some are a bit odd and some clearly tell me I am dealing with either a newbie or a seasoned prepper looking to go further.  Given many of them are very common questions though I figured I would do an episode today on some of them.  This will likely be a great show for newbies and hopefully have some interesting stuff for people who have been around a long time as well. Join Me Today as I Answer… What is the biggest threat we face nationally? How can I afford to get prepared when I can barely get by already? How much land do you need to produce 100% of your own food? How to you test your preps, more often stated as how do I know if I’ve done enough? How much food should I store? What do you think will happen where I live? (usually from suburbanites) Don’t you think it would be 100% safe in rural ares? (usually from those who live rural) How do I get my wife/husband/brother/uncle/etc to understand this stuff? What should I do if I have no place to evacuate to? How big of a solar system do I need to provide all my own energy? How long can a generator run my house for me? If I have lots of gold and silver won’t that make me rich if the economy collapses? What kind of gun should I get?  How much ammo is enough? etc. I want to put a group together how do I find like minded people? Why do you tell people about what you do, isn’t that a mistake?
