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.

These are not the sexy items like AR-15’s, body armor, bug out bags, off grid retreats,or bug out vehicles. this is a continuation of overlooked prep items that other survival survival/ prepping shows never talk about very much.if you have something you think would be a good canidate and you never hear anyone talk about it comment below or go to www.lostskillspodcast.com/forum/ and leave a comment in the section podcast episode discussion. I guess i forgot to post this a while ago so i figured i should put it up now. If you haven’t heard the first 4 parts of the series you can listen to them in the links below

EPISODE-182 PALEO UPDATE

Hello everybody !

Today’s show is my paleo update. I started the paleo lifestyle about two months ago and i have had some awesome results! Started out at 317 pounds before i did anything. It was a reflection of the crappy diet i was eating as the typical american. I currently weigh 285 after being on paleo for just over 2 months. You will hear me say a higher number for my end weight and that is because i recorded this podcast a little while ago so the number has changed. At work when people heard i was on a diet,which is a normal guy thing, but i love to shut them up by saying “how many diets do you know of where you get to eat bacon and eggs every morning?” I love to see the looks on their faces when i tell them that. As far as goals for the paleo diet go , i really don’t have one i just take everything one day at a time.

One thing you have to remember this is a lifestyle not a fad diet you have to leave your old way of thinking behind If you want to learn about my experiences on paleo check out today’s show.

EPISODE- 177 JAMES FROM SURVIVALPUNK.COM PART 2

Hi everyone,

Today’s show is my second part of my  interview with James Burnette from survivalpunk.com. In today’s podcast i ask James questions like;

What got you prepping ?
Why you started survival punk .com.
Your path to dual homestead.
Things you salvaged from the trailer.
Details on your tiny house.
How you look at your preps now being paleo.
And we find also find plenty of topics go off on tangents about. That seems to be what we do when we get together and talk. You can listen to my interview here. since we do have that tendency to do that that during interviews it was 1 hr 45 minutes long so i split it into 2 parts.
