    Preparing with a Special Needs Child with Robert Ralston

    Preparing with a Special Needs Child with Robert Ralston

    Today we have an interview show with Robert Ralston - a man who has approached prepping with a family member with special needs. It changes the equation.

    Main content of the show
    My Wife and I are in our mid 50's and have been prepping for about six years. We have a 20 year old non verbal autistic child.  I work for the family plumbing business in the warehouse where I build prepper items to sell and inspire others in the wood shop.
     
    Are you worried about people coming to your house after a long term disruption of the power grid or the internet banking grid? Do good and bad people have the resources to come to your house ? What are the five stages of prepper denial ? What positive outcome can prepping bring about? What should parents of special needs children be doing to prepare for local and global events? Should these parents get into gardening? What is at risk to work on your possible immaturity when it comes to your mind, body, spirit and bank account? How can unemotional critical thinking in preparing improve your mind, body, spirit and bank account?

    On Like-Mindedness

    On Like-Mindedness

    Today we take a bit of a dive into finding like-minded people should mean, if it is a good idea, and how to make community work.

    Tales from the Prepper Pantry
    FD Food is great for travel Tomato wall is disconnected and we are letting tomatoes ripen on the vines Auditing Pantry for On Site Food for SRF Staff Weekly Shopping Report from Joe
    We made this week's trip on Sunday, with three stops. Traffic seemed a little heavy, but it must have been church traffic, because the store parking lots seemed relatively empty.
    The first stop was Dollar Tree. Ginny on Homestead Corner said her Dollar Tree (somewhere in Maine) was running out of things, and holes were being masked by plastic items spread out on shelves, but I did not see that in ours. The Health aisle has still not been restocked, but everything else looks pretty full.
    Next was Home Depot. A 2x4x8 remains at $3.98. The battery carrels at checkout are only 1/3 full, but I noticed some additional islands with batteries. They may be switching things around, as the carrels are mostly Duracell and Ray-o-Vac, but the islands are Ever-ready (Energizer). The store is otherwise well-stocked. While getting some 3-in-1 oil, I found a 26" RainX wiper blade there for only $11, so snatched that up. If you need wiper blades, they don't have a lot of them, but if your Home Depot has your size, that's an excellent price.
    Aldi was last. I don't recall any notable price changes, but there seemed a lot less variety in the chips and snacks area. Produce looked good, the meat area had decent stock, and we found a couple of frozen turkey breasts which we had not seen there for a while. At $11 each, I'm glad we'll get at least a few meals from each one.
    At my last fill, untainted regular was still $4.199/gallon.

    Main topic of the Show:  On Like-Mindedness
    Back to the Land and Like-Minded People
    What do we mean when we say like minded?
    What should we mean when we say like minded?
    Thoughts about critical thinking skills
    Trust the Science and asking questions
    Creating communities of like-minded people
    Don’t sweat the small stuff
    Assessing if something is a CRITICAL difference or a small difference
    None of my business
    Landing: Like mindedness is very important if we break things down to core values, but our human tendency is to equate strong opinions on a variety of things with core values. However, when we reach further, we often find that the BIG differences of opinion that we have are other people’s talking points, or things grounded in the HOW not the WHY or the WHAT. 
    We can do better and focus on real goals that make a real difference when we learn to look beyond the spin and work together on core outcomes.

Great encouragement

Always useful information on how to live a more self Sustainable life with in community.

Easy to listen to

I really like this podcast and Nicole seems like a cool, thoughtful lady. I love hearing about the intentional community she’s building in Tennessee as well as the goings on of her homestead/projects. I feel like most homesteading podcasts are either right wing preppers or Christian SAHMs and while I have nothing against either of those groups, I don’t always relate. It’s nice to hear the point of view of someone who just wants to build a good life.
