today’s podcast was recorded on a trip my friend tom and i made to the army surplus store.there are a lot of great items you can get at a army surplus store like bags, canteens, cups,sleeping bags, mre’s, knives ,and other equipment that can be a cornerstone to getting your preps together. tom is just started thinking about getting prepared and wanted to put a BOB together and went looking around for some of the items he may need .also i needed a another ammo can .we also stopped at a couple of gun stores and checked out some AR-15’s because tom is thinking of buying one. so this episode is basically 2 guys talking on their way from this trip .
its the first time i have had someone else on the show and he is a little hard to hear but i did what i could but i didn’t want the background noise to get to loud. also there are a couple of words that are inappropriate for young children on this show so you should pre- listen if there are going to be children around.
today’s episode is about my thoughts on deer hunting. these are just some of my random thoughts on deer hunting including my thoughts on deer blinds, ethics, shot placement , taking kids hunting,baiting and the overall image of hunters. my voice starts to get bad at the end of the episode because i am still getting over being sick so please bear with the occasional coughs and my raspy voice.i just really wanted to get out a friday show for you guys .
todays episode is on valuable skills for SHTF. this is part five of the series. this also is going to be a multiple show series because i just don’t list the skills and that’s that , i do talk a little about why i think they are valuable to know .i do not know how many episodes this will turn out to be but i am going to try to keep them at about 30 minutes.also if anyone has any show topics they want to hear please send me an e-mail with what you want to hear.

Even though today’s episode is titled “my thoughts on survival TV shows.” it is also on a my journey into getting involved in survival and preparedness. I also talk about some of the sites on the web that got me involved into being a prepper. I am sure some of the same shows may have woke you up also so you may see our journey into this topic may not be so different after all.
