EPISODE 247 OFF GRID SEPTIC SYSTEMS

Todays episode is on off grid septic systems. This episode is inspired by the video on the gravity fed sink that James from survivalpunk.com uploaded on youtube. check it out below

There are many places you may want an off grid septic system such as at a hunting camp, your bug out location, or at a tiny house you have on your off grid property. I talk about the different ways that you can construct off grid septic systems.

Here is the disclaimer: 

Off grid septic systems should be built at your own risk !!! Off grid septic systems usually are not legal !!! And i am not responsible for any thing that happens when building any of the off grid septic systems i talk about in today’s episode.

I also have a version of this i made for in my garage that you can see below

EPISODE 226 WHY WE PREPARE

Today’s episode is on why we prepare. Why we prepare is for all of the things that life can throw at us whether it be job loss, a car accident, people dying in our families, or anything else that life can throw at us. Today I just want to talk about why we prepare a little bit.

As modern survivalist this is something that we really need to think about, it’s not the end of the world that’s gonna take everything out , it’s going to be the time when you hit a deer with your car that’s gonna put a hurt on your financial life . And I think that being financially prepared is something that a lot of us need to look at. If you want to hear more about my thoughts on we prepare then listen in to today show and hope you guys enjoy it .

EPISODE-210 KNOWING HOW THINGS WORK

Hi everyone,

Today’s episode is on knowing how things work. As preppers i think we need to know how things work because otherwise when things go bad we wont know how to fix them. We are all responsible for ourselves first. If we cant fix things for ourselves how can we fix things for others? Listen in today for more of my thoughts on this subject.

EPISODE-190 WHAT ARE YOU PREPARING FOR ??

Hi everyone!

Today’s episode is titled “what are you preparing for?” I Think that is a valid question. if you are prepping for many of the scenarios that are on the show “doomsday preppers” i think you need a reality check so i figures that that would be a good topic for todays show. Somehow this episode sipped through the cracks so some of the housekeeping is a little bit of old news.but the show is still good . I do have some better audio coming ,but i have to go through my mp3 recorder and use up some of these shows that slipped through the cracks first.
