The hosts get right to the point. Plus there's no swearing or usless profanity. Of course these guys arn't Navy Seals, but they seem experienced especially survival hardware. Not so much gardening and homesteading though.
I like their laid back approach to prepping. They take it seriously but haven't gone off the deep end like buying book matches in bulk at the dollar store and vacuum sealing them into bartering units (you might know who I'm talking about).
Let me start by saying I love the topic of bug out bags. I have never heard of 2 guys that were such gear snobs. One guy says he’s from Maine. Dude, you’re embarrassing us. Must be southern Maine. I think you did more to hurt the average guy and his building of his BOB. Preppers make due with what they have and can afford. We don’t need a $200 axe or a $100 knife. I encourage anyone to use the best you are willing to spend. The flashlight episode was brutal..... hands down. Once again, the best light is the one you have and can afford. I know all the ones they talked about are in the $50 range. Their BOBs must cost $1500 easily. Please don’t be deterred by these guys and their big wallets. Do what you can with what you can afford.
One of the best. No BS. Just quality.
I like these guys. Totally on the level. Their stories and advice is good stuff. Not the imagination of city preppers. Real experience. Worth a subscribe.
