Okay, so I’m only kidding with the title…. But it has likely been obvious that for the past few months I have been on something of a sabbatical from this show. It was not planned (as you could tell from the last couple of episodes I posted right before the break) but was necessary for a number of reasons. I have missed doing the program greatly and am presently trying to gear back up to continue the show.
Which brings me to the current state of things. The world appears to ...
Yes, indeed it has been a long time since you have heard my (not-so) melodious voice over the virtual airwaves of the internets! I was not planning on taking a three week break from the show, but a lot of real-life issues have intervened including:
* Assisting my wife in completing 41 credits of graduate coursework in order for her to keep her teaching license and her job
* The massive amount of work required for doing the “farm-thing” on a scale double wh...
Today I take a look at the massive drought impacting the “Breadbasket of the World”, that is my home country of the United States. We consider some of the ramifications of a return to the “Dust Bowl” days, and then I discuss my experiences with the Savage Model 110 bolt-action rifle.
The song for today is “Drought” by Brent Watkins and Brian Sporer
Today I discuss more of the potential fallout from the Aurora shootings and what it may mean as far as firearms restrictions, limitations on ammunition purchases and other attempts by Anti-Second Amendment forces to curtail our rights in this country. I also predict that we will see more of these sorts of episodes in the near future before this fades from public consciousness. In addition we look at the massive power grid failures in India and ways to prepare for that potential eventuality in othe...
Happy Friday! On today’s mobile podcast your humble host discusses the idea of maintaining a state of alert at important times along with ways to drastically lower your food storage budget (both for everyday and for long-term needs).
It’s been a couple of weeks since our last episode aired as Chip has been traveling to church conventions, slaving away trying to keep the farm going, and caring for a one-month old baby. However, today we look back at the first two years of this program and discuss a new direction for the CMFSP for the future. We also look at some of the stories in the news relating to Disaster Preparedness and talk about the worrisome nature of the state of the world today.
Today your favorite guy named “Chip” discusses a book he read recently about not only prepping for societal collapse, but the process of how to rebuild afterwards. This book called “Rebuilding a Village-Steps For Starting Over In a Collapsed Society” covers a number of aspects of Survivalism/Prepping that are often neglected and on this episode we take a look at some of them.
As we in the United States celebrate Independence Day this year please remember to pray for the needs of our nation and wisdom for our leaders during these difficult times. There is so much to be concerned with in this world but there is also a power greater than all the challenges….
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will hea...
Today I discuss a modern classic (at least for my wife and I) that deals with survival and preparedness themes on numerous levels. As I usually do when talking about survival media I do a plot overview and this look at specific preparedness lessons one can draw from the story as presented. I’m reviewing this today so that you’ll have the chance to watch in on or around Independence Day if this episode peaks your interest (although it’s likely most listeners will probably have see...
Today we look at a couple of current news items that have a LOT to tell us about Disaster Readiness and Preparedness. Specifically I focus on the massive Colorado Wildfires and the brutal “Land Hurricane” (aka “Super Derecho”) impacting the eastern US. This is certain to be an eye opening look at a couple significant disasters we don’t usually consider (have you ever heard of a “Super Derecho” before this particular storm system rolled through?)
