EPISODE-195 5 GALLON BUCKET CHALLENGE

Hi everyone,

Today’s episode is what i am going to call the 5 gallon bucket challenge. I challenge everyone that listens to make something out of a 5 gallon bucket and send in some pics and i will post them up on the site. Why a 5 gallon bucket challenge? First off they are cheap you can get a bucket and a lid for 5 bucks or under, a lot of times you can get them for free at restaurants. Second , They have many uses besides carrying water. Third, you can modify them with very cheap tools , so anyone can participate.

5 gallon bucket

To me a 5 gallon bucket is one of the most versatile things you can have. Preppers use them for long term storage. Homesteaders use them to haul feed and water to animals. Home mechanics use them for catching fluids and carrying scrap metal. You can also just use them as a chair. Gardeners can use them as pots and to carry water and fertilizer. The possibilities are endless.

So please join me in the 5 gallon bucket challenge and make a project. Also please share this around and hopefully we will have a huge number of submissions.

EPISODE-124 WHAT IS WRONG WITH SOCIETY TODAY ??

Hello everyone,

today’s episode is titled what is wrong with society today. and by whats wrong i mean the fact that we are loosing some of the skills that made America great . i have always realized this but it was really made evident to me when i was watching hell on wheels. it is a tv show about the race to build the first transcontinental rail road across the United States. now i know its just a tv show but it dies depict some of the very harsh conditions that the people building it endured. while watching it i thought that there is no way  you could get anyone to do that nowadays. but anyway if you haven’t seen it i do recommend watching it. now today’s podcast is a little about that and allot about most peoples reluctance to do things for themselves, they want to do it the easy way and pay someone to build or repair their things, or they want to replace it with something new . the whole premise of my show is on resisting doing that  so i hope you enjoy today’s episode.

also i have been busy lately and have not had time to record and edit episodes lately but rest assured the podcast isn’t going anywhere.if you have any ideas for show topics send them to the email below , they are always appreciated .
