Hey guys I am back.  I just spent 5 great days at PermaEthos in West Virginia.  What an awesome experience!  It was all capped off with a great concert by Andrew McKnight, who has a great gift not just for amazing music but amazing stories with his music.

I then had another round of Airline Fun to get home.  I should have been home by 12PM yesterday but didn’t make it till four, it involved flying to Dallas from Washington DC via flying over Corpus Cristi and before that sitting on the tarmac for about 2 hours.

After all that I decided today to just do a chat with Jack type of show.  I will tell you some stuff about the event, I will also talk about the recent “upping” of the Ebola scare propaganda, some other homesteading stuff and more.

Join Me Today To Discuss…

  • Music that tells a story from Andrew McKnight
  • Ebola, it is spreading, well not really, here is why
  • Jack is going to Wisconsin, to see Mark Shepard but plans have “shifted”
  • There are still 2 seats for the Nov. TSP event, why you should come
  • What is SchoolStupidity.com and how you can help with it

Bob Wells Plant of the WeekISSAI COLD HARDY KIWI Adaptable from zone 5 to zone 9 some say on the cold side it is actually hardy to zone 4.

It will bear long, sweet fruit. Does not require a pollinator, but will produce larger and more fruit if you plant a Meador Cold Hardy Kiwi with it. If you live above zone in shorter growing season areas you can grow it in a container  –  Order this Plant at Bob Wells Nursery

Big Month for 299 Days


Book 10, Audio Books, and New Merchandise!

October is a big month for the 299 Days book series by Glen Tate. The 26th of this month marks the 299th day of the year, and with it, the release of the 10th and final book of the series. It also marks the release of the audio book version of all 10 books. There is also great new merchandise available including the Pierce Point T-shirt.


In this final book of the 299 Days series, The 43 Colonels celebrates the many “ordinary” men and women who did extraordinary things during and after the Collapse. Set in the chambers of the New Washington Legislature during a joint session of the House and Senate, Governor Ben Trenton honors Colonel Grant Matson and 42 other individuals who helped start the Restoration. The stories of these modern-day Patriots, both heart-wrenching and inspirational, demonstrate how anyone can help in a revolution.


For the audiobooks, author Glen Tate got one of the very best narrators in the audio book world to narrate and produce this series. Kevin Pierce has narrated more audio books via Audible’s ACX system than any other person on the planet. The story really comes to life when Kevin Pierce reads it. Listening to the audio books, even if you’ve already read them in print, adds a tremendous new dimension to the story. You get much more out of the story hearing it than simply reading it.


Lastly is the amazing new Pierce Point artwork that was created by TSP community member Nicodemus. TSP Gear Shop took great care in finding a vendor that could print every detail of this beautiful work on the new shirt. It is their best shirt so far. Note from author Glen Tate – “Want to show that you’re a 299er – but don’t want to attract too much attention? Want to have a “low signature” “insider” shirt? The Pierce Point shirt looks like a normal resort shirt, but 299ers you run into will know that you’re talking about the place where it all happens: Pierce Point.”

Don’t forget all the other great TSP merchandise that is available at TSP Gear Shop Shipping is always free and MSB Members get 10% off all orders!

Episode-1443- Jeff Yago on the Vulnerability of our Electrical Grid

Author and Consultant Jeff Yago

Author and Consultant Jeff Yago

Jeff Yago has over 30 years experience in the solar and alternative energy field and has appeared on this show before. His hundreds of solar and emergency preparedness articles have been published by Backwoods Home, Home Power, Energy Users News, and Mother Earth News.

In addition to Jeff being a licensed professional engineer, and certified energy manager, he is also NABCEP certified as a solar professional and a licensed electrician. Jeff lives with his wife Sharon in a solar hoem they designed and built in 1994 near Richmond Virginia.

The current Sept issue of Backwoods Home Magazine features his article about the concerns for national electric grid reliability and why we should not rely on emergency generators.

Jeff feels that there are far more problems related to grid reliability than the public is being told, and few electric utilities are doing anything to harden their systems even though they are well aware of the increased risks.

Join Jeff and I Today as we Discuss…

  • What has changed that has increased  concerns over grid reliability
  • How is the U.S. grid organized and administrated – who is in charge
  • What have recent congressional committees done to address this issue
  • What types of risks are there these days have there been any attacks already
  • What can we do, why should we not relay on just a generator

Episode-1442- The Reality And The Hype of Ebola

ebolaToday we will look at the Ebola situation and discuss prepping for epidemic/pandemic in general.  I have received so many emails expressing concern and fear about Ebola, I must do this show.

The reason I have hesitated isn’t because we can’t learn from this situation.  It also isn’t because it poses no threat to the US at all.  Nor is it because Ebola isn’t a terrible disease.  No it is simply that there is so much hype, fear and bullshit going on about Ebola that I don’t want to add to it in anyway!  So perhaps I can mitigate it today.

Ebola is a serious life threatening illness.  It has the potential to do a lot of long term harm, even in the US but not by infecting millions as the hype would lead one to believe.  The reality is the biggest threat Ebola represents to developed nations is economic.

Join Me Today To Discuss

  • How long have we known about the virus called Ebola
  • How is Ebola spread
  • Are we “sending troops to fight Ebola”, yes but this phrase is misleading
  • Some statistics as of 10-3-14
    • Guinea, Liberia & Sierra Leone – 7470 cases
    • Guinea, Liberia & Sierra Leone – 3431 deaths
    • Guinea, Liberia & Sierra Leone – Combined population 22 million
    • Current percent of infection in these three nations .03%
    • Current percent of death in these three nations .0156%
    • Motor vehicle fatalities in the US in 2012 33,000 were .01% of the total population
    • Total deaths from all accidents in the US in 2009 was .04%
    • Malignant Tumors killed .18% of the total population in 2009
  • Why the greatest threat to the US is economic
    • Media hype
    • Over reaction
    • Legitimate concerns
  • Why the threat is minimal
    • Quarantine is very effective for Ebola
    • It must be spread by bodily fluids
    • The disease is not contagious until symptomatic
    • Ebola patients go from well to a little sick to extremely sick, very fast
    • If you have been exposed it is likely that you will know it
  • What to do about this threat
    • The same common sense preps as always
    • Minimum 30 days of food and essentials, 60 days is better
    • Be prepared to work remotely if possible
    • Good storage of essentials for animals as well
    • Be medically prepped, not so much for the disease as for any illness/injury
    • Relax, don’t worry, have a homebrew, seriously.

This Monday’s Prepper Scenario

A series of events has caused a food shortage.  Food is available but many things are hard to come by and what is available is priced 2-3 times as high as current prices.  A series of events has resulted in this.  A bad crop year around the globe from multiple weather events and new pests/crop diseases.  Compounding it has been an over reactive scare due to a potential Ebola pandemic, which has also damaged the economy.  Prices are expected to remain high for at least a year.  America is getting off easy in many third world nations food riots are now erupting.  What do you during this period?  How do you stretch your food budget?  How much do you rely on your stored food?  Of course the cost of animal feeds has at least doubled as well, so factor that into your plans.

Last Monday’s Prepper Scenario

An ice storm hits your area. There is no electricity and won’t be for weeks. Movement is all but impossible, even with chains most roads are blocked by multiple downed trees. Forecast is for bitterly cold weather for the next week or so, highs below freezing. Power companies say power will be out for up to three weeks for some customers, in this case that includes you. It will be at least a week before you can get out and about. At that time supplies, gas, etc. will be short and many stores closed anyway for another week due to no power, damage, folks not being able to come to work, etc. What do you do, including sanitation, animal needs (if applicable), heat, motivation and morale, etc.

Event Description

Get ready to join us for an incredible event as we plan and plant a
major edge extension of our zone four style food forest, an urban forest garden and several other areas all in one amazing three day event.

Additionally there will be classes on plant propagation, building a rooting bed, grafting and more.  It is even likely there will be a few bonus
classes on other subjects all together.

The event will be taught by lead instructor Jack Spirko with co instructor Nick Ferguson.   The event will be strictly limited to 28 students and will be the only TSP Fall Event for 2015.  As of this post only 10 spots remain open.

To my knowledge nothing with this much planting diversity has ever
been crammed into a three day workshop before.  Yet with the large
number of students expected to attend we should have plenty of extra time
to cover other subjects with you.  This will include things like

  • Plant propagation techniques
  • Extending forest edge over time
  • The medicinal value of many of the plants we are including
  • The creation of many micro climates in our varying systems
  • The varieties we chose for our climate and why
  • How systems like ours can be used to create revenue by selling
    propagated cuttings/seeds/etc.
  • How to build and use a misting system for rooting plant cuttings
  • How our system will evolve over time and the role supporting
    species will play
  • Brewing Compost Tea
  • Much more

In the run up to this event I have acquired about 100 new plants and
trees, students will actually be designing in the placement of them with
instructor guidance.  A list of these species and any additional
ones we acquire will be provided to all students a week or two before
the event so you can do a bit of research on them if you
wish.

Our events are noted for being awesome not just for the educational/workshop portions but for the networking, after hours events and the food as well.  Some note worthy things we always do

  • Feed you until you think you will pop
  • Seed exchanges
  • Barter blanket
  • Tell you the insider secret of the event club “Talk to the
    Squirrel” (swear you to secrecy about it too, it isn’t a big deal but it is kind of cool)
  • Have awesome cool special guests that show up most are unannounced until you arrive
  • Have a general blast

TSP Events Flickr Account and TSP Events Youtube Channel.

 

 

 

Frequently Asked Questions About Our Events

 

  • Question – Where is this event?

  • Answer - After you sign up you will get a document with all event details.  The address is only given to students who have paid a deposit.  But for your planning purposes we are near Azle Texas.  That is just north of Fort Worth.

  • Question – What is the best airport to fly into?

  • Answer - The best bet is Dallas-Fort Worth International (DFW) it is only about 35 minutes assuming traffic isn’t at peak from our home.  The only other viable option is Dallas Love Field (DAL) this may save you money if Southwest Flys direct from your airport but it is a longer drive.  I would plan on an 1 hour and 15 minutes or more despite what google maps will tell you if you fly into Love Field.

  • Question – What type of food is served at these events?

  • Answer -  The key word is meat but we have other stuff too.  Generally we serve eggs (from our own flock) for breakfast with bacon and sausage and tortillas for breakfast with awesome local salsa and fixings.  We also include a selection of fruit, breakfast bars,
    etc.  This time around the breakfast sausage is Jack’s personal recipe hand made by himself.

    Lunch is deli meats, chicken salad, left overs from dinner the night before and other things.  This year we are planning some new things for lunch including awesome shredded chicken from our own birds and Dorothy’s amazing meat balls.

    Dorothy and I also just made up a huge pot of Sandi B’s famous apple, onion and butternut squash soup and froze it so it is all ready to go.  This soup is a HUGE hit but I can’t give out the recipe publicly, you’ll have to ask Sandi if you want it.  We made a TON of it this time so people won’t be fighting over who get to like the bottom of the pot.

    Dinner is usually rotisserie chicken one night, brisket another night and smoked pork shoulder the  other night.  Generally some awesome sausage finds its way into  our menu as well.  A full lunch and dinner are provided all three course days.

    We provide only coffee, fruit and breakfast bars on the first day for breakfast.  We provide full breakfast on Friday, Saturday and Sunday we provide coffee, breakfast bars, fruit and left overs.

  • Question – What are the camping conditions like?

  • Answer  – The key word is primitive.  We allow tent camping on site just about anywhere on our property.  We have an outbuilding that we let people put a cot or air mattress in but it usually gets pretty full and it is first come first served.

    There are plenty of trees for hammock camping as well.  Most folks enjoy camping because you can have adult beverages and not worry about driving and the people are just awesome to hang out with.  Most nights people end up staying up late talking and having a lot of fun playing pool, darts, spending time at the camp fire etc.

    November is usually pretty comfortable temperature wise especially at night but it rains often so be prepared for that. And be prepared for some cold nights!

    Average Nov. Temps are 66 for the High and 43 for the low, but we have seen Nov. Temps in the high 80s and occasionally lows in the 20s or lower!

  • Question – Is there a good hotel near by?

  • Answer  -  There is a great holiday inn, we get you a group rate and it varies but it is very nice hotel and we have normally gotten a rate of about 82 dollars in the past plus tax. When you sign up just indicate if you want a hotel so we have a head count for group rate info.

  • Question – Can students share a rental car, a ride to the airport, a hotel room, etc.?

  • Answer  – Sure but to be blunt we do not get involved in that.  We have way too much work to do so that you guys have a good experience when you get here.  I view it this way from the time you get on my land till you leave it is my responsibility to make sure you learn, have fun and are well fed.

    Off site I leave it to you to deal with things.  However, we have a private email list and many students work out things like this between themselves on it.  Make sure to join it as soon as you get your instructions packet as their will be information on it.

  • Question – I have a question that isn’t answered here, should I sign up, I don’t want to loose my deposit?

  • Answer  – When I send out the instruction document you have 48 hours to review the document, if something is a deal breaker you can cancel with a refund in the first 48 hours.

    After that this is my refund policy and I think it is as fair as I can be with it.  My events always sell out but the closer we get the harder it is to back fill a no show.  If I can sell your spot I give you a refund, if I can’t sell your spot due to it being to close to the event date, I don’t refund it.

  • Question – Will you take bitcoin for this event?  What about silver?

  • Answer  – I have a huge capital outlay on these evensts so I can’t take silver.  I can only take PayPal for the deposit (you can use a credit card without a paypal account) but I will take bitcoin by special arrangement for the balance due but it will have to be at least one week prior to the event.  If you want to do this, email me for
    arrangements.

Episode-1439- Gary Collins on Remote Homestead Scouting and Set Up

Gary Collins, Creator of the Primal Power Plan

Gary Collins, Creator of the Primal Power Plan

After an exciting career in military intelligence Collins worked for the U.S. State Department, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and U.S. Food and Drug Administration as a Special Agent. His career took him around the world and gave him a unique perspective on not only how the United States, but the world is affected by our food, drug and healthcare policies.

The highlights of his career took him from protecting some of the most powerful people in the world to investigations involving the biggest tainted pet food death case in the U.S. to the intricate dealings of one of the largest counterfeit prescription drug rings in the world. He has often said, “If American’s really knew what was going on in the area of healthcare and nutrition in this country, they would be appalled.”

Gary’s love for all things primal has now led him to begin a new chapter in his life.  He recently purchased 20 acres in Washington state, nearly a thousand miles north of his home in California.  Today he joins us to discuss finding rural land, the challenges of building off grid and more.  We also delve a bit into entrepreneurial topics near the end.

Episode-1438- Free Your Mind and the Rest Will Follow

Your Body Can't Be Free If Your Mind is Imprisoned

Your Body Can’t Be Free If Your Mind is Imprisoned

Did I really just quote En Vogue?  You bet because in the words of Donald Shimoda when quoting Snoopy the dog in Richard Bach’s book Illusions, “I shall quote the truth wherever I find it”.

Here is another truth my love of liberty is so strong that my life is literally dedicated to it.  At one time I saw the solution to lie in politics.  If we could only get the right people into power.  Then one day I began to realize the sad truth is two fold.

First, generally the right people to have in power, do not wish for power.  They have no desire to control others, that is both what makes them the right people as well as those who don’t want the job.

Second that the few who are right for the job that are willing to do it, can’t compete with the system of predators, thieves, liars and tyrants when they become part of it.  To really understand this just in the US House alone, just visit Defining the Machine, and after that you will have zero doubt that the game is rigged.

So once you realize the political fix is in, further that the banking and industrial giants control that anyway.  You then come to understand that all of main stream media is controlled by only 6 companies.  That everything you are told, shown, expected to believe or argument you are given only two sides of is programmed by a handful of individuals.

This leads many in the “conspiracy community” to postulate that the goal is total physical slavery.  Yet when you focus on freedom you see the horrible truth for what it is, there is no need to physically enslave a man, if you already control his mind.

Join Me Today To Discuss…

  • Why do Americans think they are free in the first place
  • The real master remote control box and how it works
  • Why you must free your mind of both everything and nothing
  • Why liberty must exist for those you disagree with, if you are to have it too
  • Why people respond to liberty with anger and violence
  • How a lack of vision, hope and real heroes has weakened society

Bob Wells Plant of the Week – Chandler Strawberry Highly adaptable from zone 5 to zone 9.

The Chandler Strawberry has a very large, medium red, glossy finish, with a large conical to long wedge shaped. The fruit quality is excellent, and the Chandler Strawberry produces a high yield, which are excellent for coastal areas down to zone 9, yet are cold hardy enough to grow in zone 5. If you live above zone 5 we have other varieties available.
