Episode-97- TSP Rewind – Prepping from Starting Out to Advanced Tactics
Today is an episode of TSP Rewind, commercial free versions of past podcast episodes. Today’s episode was originally Episode-626- Prepping from Starting Out to Advanced Tactics and was originally published on March 17, 2011. A lot has changed since this show originally aired and a lot has remained the same. One thing is clear though my call at the time to not freak the hell out over the Fukushima incident was pretty damn accurate. The following are the original show notes from that episode… With the disaster in Japan I am getting a lot of emails from brand new people and long time listeners, the basic question is “what should we do”? Well this may be hard for you to believe given the non stop media coverage of the burning reactor but the answer is, unless you are in Japan you should probably not do anything. That said getting out of Japan unless you are part of the relief efforts probably isn’t a bad idea. You certainly shouldn’t go spend 100 dollars for a bottle of potassium iodine on eBay because you will be able to get all you want for about 15 bucks a bottle in about a month, there is really nothing for you to do, perhaps other than make a contribution to the relief efforts in Japan. What we all should be doing right now personally is using this current disaster as a gut check of sorts. Rather than worry about some fictitious cloud of death, that just isn’t going to happen you should be asking the following. What would it have meant to me had this disaster occurred in California or New York? What if it had just been a tsunami, just a nuclear accident or just an earth quake but had happened much closer to me, would I have been prepared enough to shelter in place or get out of dodge? With that in mind I think it is time we take a show to go back and just talk about prepping in general, the tenets of preparedness and self evaluation of how we would handle a disaster that wasn’t thousands of miles away. Join me today as we discuss… Why now is not the time to panic but to plan Why 30 days is the absolute minimum amount of food you should have on hand Why having a means of water purification is more important than water storage Why you need both lethal and non lethal methods of self defense Getting started with personal energy independence Understanding how most people are enslaved by the systems Realizing the link between liberty and prepping Additional Resources for Today’s Show Members Support Brigade Join Our Forum Follow Life With Jack on Instagram TSP Facebook Group Walking To Freedom TspAz.com The Granddaddy’s Gun Club Biltong for Breakfast Find Your TSP Facebook Group for Your State Raised on Radio – Journey Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

Episode-2405- Bryan and Laura Emerson on Life in a Fly In Only Location
Bryan and Laura Emerson moved from a high-rise in Houston, TX to a two room log cabin – with an outhouse – in Bush Alaska, a 20 minute flight from the nearest road. They have lived there full time for six years and part time for a prior five. They enjoy a kayaking happy hour in the summer and wood fired hot tub at 10 below. They join us today to talk about the reality of living in a totally remote environment. The challenges with getting supplies, transportation where there are no roads, staying prepared when there is no other real alternative and more.

Episode-2404- Container Gardens for Food Production
Today we take a look at a subject we really haven’t gone into for a long time, container gardening. I know many listeners have very small yards or no yards and are regulated to growing things on a balcony. Containers though to me are for everyone, they short cut soil prep time, offer many advantages and can be used in a variety of ways that improve your production regardless of your land or lack thereof. Get ready and strap in, I am on fire today with information and resources, this is one of those shows that will overload and work your brain. Join me today as we discuss… Why containers are for all gardeners Grow crops outside of your geographic zone Use your land for plants that really need the space Allows you to grow food anywhere you can find sun Opens up new spacing opportunities Turn some “annuals” into “perennials” Advantages of Container Gardens Very few weeds Easy and fast to build fertility Easy to work, harvest, etc. Easy to extend seasons with Easy to teach others ...
