    Prepping With Your Family | Speaking With Rachel

    On today’s episode, we are speaking with Rachel again to talk more about how she raises her children in the current digital age that we are all a part of. 
    “They have to learn how to fail. That is when you learn, and that is when you grow, and that is when you figure out what you're good at and where your god given talent should be applied. Not everybody should get a trophy, and we are in indeed in an everybody gets a trophy stage of life. I feel very comfortable saying that is an absolute disservice to our kids. They need to fail. They need to feel the failure and know that it is a huge part of being successful, and they need to know what they're good at so that they can apply themselves in a way to make a difference.”

    Homesteading and Sustainable Family Living | Speaking With Rachel

    On Today's episode we have a special guest, Rachel, who will be telling us about her and her family's experience homesteading and how she teaches her children to prep and live sustainably.
    "So I want their first option to not be to pick up a device. And what's interesting is when you have them outside or you help condition them to think that way they forget about it once they're outside or once they're distracted doing something physical. I've noticed that the device is in the back of their head, but it's not something that they immediately go to..."

    Outdoor Survival | The basics of being prepared for an outdoor adventure Part 2

    Outdoor Survival | The basics of being prepared for an outdoor adventure Part 2

     In this second part of Outdoor Survival with Fred, topics covered include the best hiking footwear, water filtration, and some of Fred's hikes he has planned for the Summer. 
    When it comes to water filtration Fred states..."My absolute favorite is mechanical filtration. And I use a system basically that consists of a plastic bag that is made for scooping water out of a streamer like you hang it up on whatever you got that you kind of elevate the bag...If I just want to do a gallon I can do that... or I think it will hold up to three. If I want to do three gallons at one time, I can do that. And I like that flexibility."

    Outdoor Survival | The basics of being prepared for an outdoor adventure Part 1

    In today's episode Nick unpacks some great adventures with our guest, Fred. Listen and learn from an outdoor enthusiast's trials and tribulations. "So I'm expecting to come down and maybe we're going to see a bear finally. And he stops and pivots, and his eyes are gigantic in his head. And he's like, it's not a bear. What is it? ...and there's like this eight foot tall Moose on the trail, and his backside was facing us. And we're maybe only like five 6ft from it from the way we came around this corner. And immediately I'm thinking we have no place to go because Moose do what hippopotamus do. They trample people..."
    What would you even do in this situation? It's good to be prepared for the unexpected.
    Another way to be prepared for an adventure is with a good map. Where might you be able to get water once you run out along your route? Or, what's going to look like a good area to camp in if you need to plan out where you're staying overnight?
    Fred goes into the details when it comes to reading maps and route outlining for  hikes. There is definitely some planning required for a multiple day hike into the back woods. Not to mention there are a few tools you will want to have with you.

    Daily Preparedness | Adam of Everyday Survival

    In this episode, Joe speaks with Adam, the host of the podcast: Survive Everyday.
    No matter what you're preparing for, tornadoes, fires, inflation, whatever, you still need to survive today, right? 
    We approach the conversation of preparation in a very practical way in this conversation. What are the best practices for preparing on the daily?
    Joe states: "Today's conversation with us is really about...what are the little things that we weave in that are not frightening, that do remove anxiety, allow you to control the moment when the moment happens, if the moment happens and if it doesn't, you're not out that much, really, in some cases, you gain along the way just for being a little bit prepared."

    Cancel Culture and Freedom of Speech | Speaking With Daisy Luther

    Cancel Culture and Freedom of Speech | Speaking With Daisy Luther

    On this episode, we are joined again by Daisy Luther of The Organic Prepper. Cancel culture, censorship, and accountability are present in the media and it's all controlled by one narrative. How is this happening in the USA? Is critical thinking and free speech at risk?
    Nick and Daisy also unpack some of the current events in Canada. This new dystopian direction is alarming. Canada is our neighbor, so it's a good idea to be prepared and pay attention to what's going on.

Jeep Thought ,

Better than I expected

This podcast is good, easy to listen to and insightful. The audio is alright, a little quiet but everything seems to be well edited otherwise.
