I’m not an expert on log cabins but I was asked his question on how to repair some rotting logs on a wall of a cabin. This is what I think I would do to repair it and I came up with this actually before I asked anybody. I asked my dad about it and he told me what I thought was pretty much how they do it.

EPISODE 266 FINANCIAL PREPAREDNESS

Today’s episode is on financial preparedness.this is one of the most overlooked and highly debated topics in prepping. There are some that are so sure that when it all falls apart that they wont have to worry about their debts. I call bullshit on that, it isn’t like they are going to loose the records of what you owe at the bank. They may not be able to collect from  everyone but they will find you eventually.also if its that bad they may choose to use questionable methods to get their money as well.

But we are not here to talk about that par,t today we are here to talk about the minor disasters like when you loose your job. Being financially prepared and having all of your ducks in a row can really help in times like these. When i was looking for a job when i was unemployed we actually saved some money because we lived a frugal lifestyle. Listen in today to hear some more of my thoughts on today’s episode.

EPISODE-265 FINDING A JOB AND HAVING A SKILLED TRADE

Today’s episode is about having a skilled trade and finding a job. Just so everyone knows this is a prerecorded episode, so i have a job now. I got quite a few messages about the last episode asking if i needed any help.The answer is no, i am good, prepping and living a frugal lifestyle has been a proven win for me. On that note, Thank you everyone for the concern and i am thankful for the all of the support you all have given me.

Now about having a skilled trade,  having a skilled trade helped me get reemployed very quickly. It helped me start at a higher wage than someone who had no experience in the skilled trades.

EPISODE 264 DEALING WITH JOB LOSS

This is one of the most common disasters that preppers face and never prep for. The funny thing about job loss is that it can happen to anyone at any time.  Sure i know prepping for a pandemic, economic collapse, or a mad max scenario is way cooler. The thing is they are not very likely. job loss is one of the things that could happen to anyone anytime and for any reason. You could miss to much work, get hurt to seriously to perform your job , or the company you worked for could close up. The thing is may never see it coming.

Listen in today to hear my thoughts on job loss and how i survived ti as a prepper.

THE HAMMER SLINGSHOT REVIEW

Today’s video is my review of the Hammer slingshot from simple-shot.com

The Hammer is a modular slingshot system that can go between being a regular slingshot and a sling bow which makes it perfect for hunting in the woods or being in your bugout bag. The design of The Hammer lets you remove the regular slingshot head and replace it with a sling bow head giving it a lot of versatility in the field. The Hammer has a rail on it for mounting accessories on it as well. You can buy a bow fishing setup for it or you can make other attachments for it as well.

Thanks to the good folks at simpleshot.com for supplying me with the Hammer slingshot so i could make this video.

Check them out here at simple-shot.com

EPISODE 260 WHY TRUMP WON

Well it has happened. President trump has been inaugurated.

Now its official president Trump is now the 45th president of the united states. There are still many that are baffled why Donald Trump won the election. I decided to put together a podcast to try to explain why i think Donald trump won the presidency. I was reading an article about why Donald Trump won in Wisconsin. It surprised me while i was reading it because it was like i wrote it myself. So i decided to do a podcast on what i thought.

Now do i think President Trump will fix everything ? I don’t know. Will he make america great again? I sincerely hope so . For people to  hope for him to fail is insane, its like hopping on a plane and hoping the pilot isn’t very good at his job and crashes the plane with you on it. It just doesn’t make any sense if you think about it logically.

Am i a big President trump supporter? Well i think i will sit back and see how he does while i still work towards personal independence. I would advise you do the same while watching what the government does. You may not be able to directly influence what they do, but you can influence those around you. If enough people do that we may see real change.

EPISODE 259 TINY HOUSE WOOD STOVE IDEAS

Today’s episode is on how i would build a tiny house wood stove. the problem with having a tiny house wood stove is the fact that space is a premium in a tiny house, so having a wood stove there full time is a waste of space. Also i talk about the challenges of making a tiny house wood stove small enough to ship. the reason for this is i wanted to build one and send it to James at survivalpunk.com for his tiny house. If i could make a good prototype i may sell them online or something. One thing is for certain if i can make a awesome prototype i may be able to ship it at a decent price> listen in today for some more of my thoughts on tiny house wood stoves and if you have any ideas leave a comment below.
