Episode-479- Listener Feedback 7-21-10

So since I was out in the field on Monday I figured we would do a listener call in show for today, I have some great questions, please understand if you have asked a question or even a few questions and have not had it answered on the air that my volume of email at this point is barring on the insane.   On any given day 200-300 emails that are either questions, show comment materiel or references to relevant articles are sent in to me, that ammounts to 1400-2100 a week.  I can’t get to everyone but I work hard to get a good snapshot into each show like this.

Join me today as we discuss…

  • Fun with the Border Patrol and Park Rangers at Big Bend (apparently camo on a manikin is “highly suspicious but not illegal”)
  • Here is an idea a GMO “super mosquito”  but at least it won’t carry malaria
  • The Colony Season Two will begin soon but what is the deal with their invasive facebook application?
  • Is investing in a 401k, 403b, IRA, etc . a good idea right now – this isn’t a yes or no question
  • Can a state legally nullify a federal law, under what circumstances, etc.
  • What can you trade a paperclip for, how about a house
  • Is prepping an enjoyable activity, I think so what about you
  • You can get your investment principle out of a ROTH investment penalty free, I was wrong on this one
  • When making jerky what are you looking for in a cut of meat

Episode-241- Thoughts on The Colony from the Discovery Channel

Today we actually have two topics to discuss, first I will give you my initial thoughts on the new reality television series “The Colony“.  This show was a pleasant surprise so far so tune in to get my thoughts on this show that places 10 folks into a true SHTF scenario.

Then I switch gears and get you thinking about your fall gardening projects.  I know it is mid summer, temps are over 100 in many areas and fall seems miles away.  It isn’t!  Many of us are already 14 weeks or less to our first killing frost and need to start acting now.  Others may not be there yet but we need to start planning.  I will tell you want to plant now and how to plan for the big production you can expect at the end of the season as well.
