Reminder MSB On Sale for Only 30 Bucks for the First Year

Join the MSB Today

Join the MSB Today and Get 20 Dollars Off Your First Year

Just a quick reminder that the MSB is currently on sale.  With this sale you can get your first year of TSP Members Brigade for the next ten days for only 30 Dollars, which is a savings of 40%. Use discount code “spring14″ to get your first year for only 30 dollars.

This sale runs until midnight on Sunday the 20th and as usual I will not offer the discount after the sale closes. This is a great discount on an already great product.

You can learn more and join the MSB Here. Those who wish to pay by mail can just write the discount code on the mail in form. Those paying by silver will receive 2 extra months (14 vs 12) instead of a direct discount.

Yes you can pay for multiple years if you pay by cash, check or silver and apply the discount to every year. If you pay online you can’t use this code to renew early, sorry it creates a logistical nightmare to do that. Let me just say in the words from the Electric Company song on PBS when I was a kid, “I would if I could, but I can’t so I won’t, please forgive me if I don’t.”

That said if you currently have an expired membership, you can use this code to add a new subscription to your old account. Just log in to the MSB, you will see a link saying your account has expired. Use the code “spring14″ during renewal and select MSB 12 Month Renew as your term of membership.

Let me just close with, while the MSB is already a great value, when I return from vacation later this month I am launching a full on summer time blitz to gain new discount vendors. The value of the MSB will definitely go up in 2014 a great deal, so if you have been thinking about it, now may be a great time to get in on a great deal and help support the work we do at TSP at the same time.

MSB Sale Discount Code Fixed – spring14

Okay so something went wrong with the discount code for the current MSB sale.  Right now you can get your first year of the MSB for only 30 dollars, full details on the sale are here.

Thing is yesterday some folks got an error saying the code was expired.  Some fricken bug jacked up the back end of the system, anyway I have fixed it and the code which is “spring14″ once again will work.

Spring Sale on MSB – Discount Code is “spring14″

The 299 Days Kickstarter Has Launched

299 Days is a ten-book series written by government insider Glen Tate. He has a front row seat to the corruption in government, and based this story on his first-hand observations of why a collapse is coming and how it will unfold. The book series, published by Prepper Press, has been very well received by both “preppers” and the general population. To date, over 70,000 copies have been purchased.

TSP Wiki Hits 900 Articles – Help the Wiki Grow in 2014

Hey everybody this is going to be all about the TSP Wiki, the modern survivalist encyclopedia written for you by you. We started up the wiki just 5 short months ago in November of 2013 and in that time we’ve created almost 900 articles, have over 100 contributors, made almost 7,000 page edits, and gotten over 100,000 page views. So the only question is, “Have you gotten involved yet?”.

Wikis are a unique type of online community where any reader in a few short steps can become a collaborating content creator. We want the wiki to be a valuable resource to all TSP community members. To make this happen we need you to come out and participate. Whether you participate by just coming out and reading articles or whether you jump in with both feet and start creating articles we’d love to see you out at the wiki.

We know that it can be intimidating figuring out how to use a new computer program but editing any wiki is about as simple as sending out an email. We’ve created a few tutorial videos to show everyone just how easy it can be. The videos cover topics like how to create an account, make a basic page edit, and even create a brand new page.

A great thing about wikis is that you don’t have to worry about getting anything perfect because there will always be another community member willing to help out. They can review the changes you made and then fix any small mistakes you’ve made or if a big mishaps occurs (like deleting all the content in an article) then they can revert the article back to a previous version.

With that being said click on over and join us out at the TSP Wiki.

Parting thought, what ways can you think of for you or others to get involved? Share them with us in the comments below!

One Spot Open for the Food Forest Workshop

I had a cancellation, the people on the reserve list say it is all too short of a notice now.  I certainly understand that.  That said if anyone wants to come to the Food Forest Planting workshop running from Thursday to Saturday next week the price is 500 dollars and again I have one opening.

UPDATE – I think the spot is sold!

Discount Code for the Geoff Lawton PDC is in the MSB

PLEASE READ THIS POST BEFORE SIGNING UP OR ASKING QUESTIONS 

Yes I have posted the discount code for the Geoff Lawton Permaculture Design Certification course to the MSB but NO YOU CAN’T USE IT JUST YET.  Simply because it isn’t for sale yet.

My contact for Geoff says the PDC goes on sale on at midnight March 29th, US Pacific time.

You can sign up when they launch the course at GeoffLawton.com if you don’t see a sign up option well, they haven’t opened it yet.

Please do not email me and ask me for the code, please don’t expect me to post the code here, please don’t expect me to put it on the air, it is for the MSB only.  This year just like last year I gave up my referral commission on this course and instead set it up for you as a discount of 100 dollars.  This is for my MSB members only by agreement with Geoff personally.

I have promised to only post it in the MSB on the benefits page like all other benefits.  If you sign up without it, then join the MSB and then come to me and ask me to “fix it” I am going to say no.

I highly doubt any regular audience member would do this.  Last year though a few people tried this who I think found out about the discount after buying Geoff’s course.  These were people that were not TSP listeners but heard about it on a forum or something, joined for 5 bucks a month, canceled the MSB immediately, then wanted me to ask Geoff to give them a refund for the discount.

Such is not the point of the MSB discount.  It is a benefit for actual MSB Members to thank you for the support you provide to the show.  Again the code is already on your benefits page but you can’t use it until Geoff Launches his PDC.

No Show Today but Huge a Announcement Tomorrow

We are still in the Northeast and won’t fly out until late this afternoon.  Josiah, I and some other undisclosed parties had an amazing 4 days, we have a few things to wrap up but PermaEthos is about to become a reality.

Tomorrow I won’t be giving 100% of the details but I will give you more than I ever have before.  Additionally I will start to tell you ways you can help us make PermaEthos a reality and how what started as a dream is becoming a new way to farm and build community in America.

TSP to Return Tomorrow

So we are about to head to the airport here in San Diego in just about an hour.  We will get home about 4PM local Dallas time.  It has been a long but truly enjoyable trip for Dorothy and me.

We met tons of great people at Voices and I got to meet some folks I have always wanted to spend some time talking to face to face like…

While we were gone the first of our new goslings hatched as well.  Like I said we had a great time and Dorothy and I even took a mini vacation for one extra day in San Diego yesterday but I am ready to be home.   I am also ready to get back on the air and will be back at it tomorrow.  However if you are missing your TSP today, remember you can always listen to a random episode from the more than 1300 we have produced over the years.
