Upcoming Changes and a New Show!

As most of you may have noticed we haven’t been very active here at Survivalist Prepper. There are a few reasons for this that I go though in this short episode, as well as some exciting things in the plans. While the Survivalist Prepper podcast may be going on the back burner for the foreseeable future, Brian Duff of Mind4Survival and I have teamed up to create a new podcast and YouTube channel called The Duff&Dale Show. This podcast episode explains more about what we are doing and what we have planned for the future.

Upcoming Changes and a New Show!

The Long-Term Effects of the Covid-19 Pandemic

The Covid-19 pandemic is something that preppers have been talking about for years, it’s a good example of how a disaster can sneak up on you regardless of how unlikely it is. While people determine whether certain disaster scenarios occur, we have no control over mother nature. History shows us that Natural disasters, CME’s and Pandemics happen all the time and should absolutely be included in our preparedness plans. While there is nothing we can do to stop these events from happening, there are things we can (and should) do to get through them. This pandemic is a wake up call to preppers and non-preppers alike. The silver lining is that it has woken people up to the fact that preparedness is important. Hopefully people are starting to figure out that prepping isn’t all about underground bunkers, nuclear bombs, and gas masks. In Today’s Podcast… In today’s show we had Brian from Mind4Survival on with us to talk about how this virus is affecting our daily lives, and also the e...

The Evolution of a Prepper

In today’s episode of the Survivalist Prepper Podcast Lisa and I talked to Anthony about his preparedness journey. Anthony has been at this for over 2 decades and started around the time of the Y2K scare. The following is a write up from Anthony who has been a member of the Survivalist Prepper Academy and podcast listener for around 5 years. Where it all began In the late 90s, I worked in the IT industry. For a few years in the lead up to the year 2000, the majority of my time was spent testing IT systems for Y2K rollover compliance. At least half of the systems I tested failed miserably, and although they were all office based software systems, it certainly opened my eyes to how vulnerable computer based systems were and what the impact might be to society if something more critical than a customer database failed. I was newly married with a 1yr old toddler and had recently purchased my first house. From a financial perspective, we were riding pretty close to the edge while restri...

EMP Shield: CME, Lightning and EMP Protection

I recently had the opportunity to talk to Andrew from EMP Shield to go over how their products work. Their products offer EMP, Lightning and CME protection at a reasonable price. An EMP or solar flare could literally set us back to the stone ages, and being able to protect your important electronics could be a game changer. EMP Shield offer products to protect… -Vehicles -Radio (ham radio) -Homes -RV (bug out vehicles) -And More As Andrew mentioned in the show the EMP Shield website has a large library of EMP information…not just products to buy. Visit the EMP Shield website here. Questions From The Show… * Can you explain how this technology works?* What are the different models you have? * What type of testing did you do on the EMP Shield?* What are the E1, E2, and E3 affects of an EMP?* How are a CME and EMP different?* I Plan on getting the Solar protector in the near future, can you explain how that works? * In the event of an EMP how might automobiles be affected, and how w...

EMP Shield: CME, Lightning and EMP Protection

Emergency Cooking Ideas and Operational Security

These days we have the convenience of turning on a stove or grill and cooking a nice juicy steak, or turning on the oven at the flip of a switch and baking fresh bread for the family, but what would you do if that wasn’t an option? Or worse yet, what would you do if it was an option, but the delicious smell it put off was ringing the dinner bell for unwanted guests? While there are is no shortage of emergency cooking ideas (and I am going to list some here) and operational security is critical when you are cooking, and no one else in the neighborhood has food. Unless you feel like opening up a SHTF soup kitchen, there are some things that need to be considered. This means we not only need to focus on different food storage ideas, we also need to pay attention to how and what you are cooking. In this week’s show Lisa and I talked about some emergency cooking ideas, as well as how important operational security is in avoiding some of the risks involved. Advertising and the Risks If ...

Emergency Cooking Ideas and Operational Security

Prepping Challenges and Distractions

With all the different disasters and emergency situations we could possible face, the process of preparing can be a little overwhelming at times and intimidating to say the least. It seems that even when we are more prepared than we ever have been, we still have the feeling that it’s just not enough. I titled this week’s podcast “ Prepping Challenges, Distractions and how to…Squirrel!” because sometimes it can be really easy have our preparedness plans derailed or go down a rabbit hole that leads us nowhere. Lisa and I talked about some of these distractions and how we can try to keep ourselves on track and not get burnt out with prepping. The last thing we want to do is to stop making progress towards our goal or goals. At the end of this post we also have some interesting (and probably common) answers we got when we posed the question “what is your biggest challenges and/or distractions?” to the Apoco-List Facebook group. Lack of resources I made this number one on the list...

Prepping Challenges and Distractions

Going Off the Grid With Brian & Pam

Going Off the Grid and Homesteading is something most of us think about at one point of another. Could you really do it? Could you leave everything behind and start from scratch? Like a lot of people out there, Lisa and I have toyed with the homesteading idea in the past. The fantasy of getting away from everything and being self sufficient eventually gives way to reality of what it would take to go off the grid and start homesteading. Financially it means quitting your job and purchasing the land, equipment and supplies to get started. On top of that you need to have the ability to leave some of the modern conveniences behind. Hope Homestead Today on the podcast Lisa and I talked to Brain and Pam who did just that. They decided to walk away from the rat race, and start their homesteading journey. They did this the same way most of us would, with 30 acres of land, a small cabin, and a lot of hands on work. They have also decided to document their entire homesteading journey so make ...

Going Off the Grid With Brian & Pam

Prepping and Budgeting

When we talk about ways to increase your prepping budget with the money you already have it means managing your money, and paying attention to where every penny you spend goes. You can make your dollars go farther by simply creating a budget, and sticking to it. At first it can be hard, but don’t get discouraged. Just like everything we do, with practice and dedication you will create a habit. But you have to stick with it, and it will become easier each time. YOU can do it! Pay attention to what you spend on a daily basis, and keep track of it. Don’t Talk Yourself Into Buying Something. Always ask yourself do you really need it? And if you do, why do you need it? Is it something you can use every day? How will this purchase make your life better? Does it serve a purpose? Is the purchase a want, or a need? If you can, wait to make the purchase until you are sure you really need it. Don’t fall for the impulse buy, wait at least 24 hours, or longer if you can before making the purc...

Prepping and Food Storage: One Size Does not Fit All

When it comes to a preppers food storage, one size does not fit all. We all have certain limitation whether that be financial or storage space. Our list of what we feel like we need to have, and our list of what we actually have can be to entirely different things. Storage space is something we can overcome with a little critical thinking, but not having the funds for food storage can put a kink in our preparedness plans. In this article we are going to go over a few of the different methods of storing food, and not wasting money on food because of improper storage or loss caused by expiration. Saving Money on Your Food Storage Store What you Eat: You probably hear this all the time, but if you don’t want to waste money on food storage it is good advice. If your family doesn’t like peas, just because canned peas are on sale doesn’t mean you should buy them. A good deal can turn into wasted money down the line. Keep in mind that some sacrifices will have to be made, refrigerated f...

Replay: What If Nothing Happens?

What is nothing happens? What if all you are doing gets passed on to your children? Is all of our prepping going to be all for nothing if life goes on without a hiccup? It shouldn’t be, everything we do should not only prepare us for anything unexpected, we should be instilling these values in our loved ones and family as well. It is not only important to plan and prepare for everything from a local disaster to the complete failure of society as we know it, it’s important not to put ourselves in the poorhouse as we do it. In this episode Lisa and I talk about being prepared should be something we do over time and not something that is reactionary because of fear. PREP DRILL! I will be using some of the answers in next Mondays podcast… As you’re sitting there watching your favorite news program your TV suddenly shuts off along with the lights and everything else in the house. You grab your phone to check if you forgot to pay the bill, and that doesn’t work either. You head outsi...
