Special Add On’s for the Coming Fall Workshop

If you are coming to the TSP Nine Mile Farm Workshop from Nov. 8-12 there are some awesome add ons available I wanted to make you aware of.

First – Patrick Roehrman is doing a build a knife with Patrick workshop.  In this workshop you will work with Patrick during times between our regular sessions to build a truly custom knife.  A knife you would normally pay say 500 dollars just to buy.  But in this special workshop you will learn how to build knives like this and end up with one you built along with Patrick for only 400 dollars.

Full Details on This Workshop
Can be Found Here

Second – Nicole Sauce will be doing a class on Word Press site development for all students.  She will also be announcing a special guided workshop allowing you to develop and fully deploy their own sites.  This will cover site development and deployment with options on hosting, graphic design and much more.   This course will be done via webinar and will begin about a week after the workshop at Nine Mile Farm end.  This will be a great opportunity to take all the ideas and things you learn at our workshop and launch it into an actual business.

Cost as always is 500 dollars, a deposit of 100 is needed to hold your spot.  The balance is paid upon arrival.  Deposits are technically non refundable but my actual policy is, if you cancel and I can sell your seat, I refund the deposit, if I can’t you lose it.

I generally have a waiting list but when people cancel only a few days before the event, often the people on it can’t attend at that point.  I find this policy to be fair, I hope you guys do as well.

TSP Spring 2017 – Fun And Skills Workshop Almost Sold Out

UPDATE – As of 2-1-17 at 11:00 4 seats remain for this class.  Two of which were added due to people willing to ride share, etc. reducing the vehicle count a bit.  If you want to come this year get your seats soon!

Well this time we made it a day without selling out, there are still about 10 seats left, so get them while you can.  This workshop is going to be amazing, with amazing people and some of the stuff is so awesome we can’t even tell you what it is in advance.

Remember what happens at the barter blanket, stays at the barter blanket and this time, that is getting expanded just a bit.  Plus do you know the meaning behind the secrete code of “Talk to the Squirrel” or are you on the private email list with some of the coolest people in the TSP community.  If not the only way to find out and get on the list is to come to a workshop.  It is a promise I have made to all students.

Cost to attend this work shop is 500 dollars total with a 100 dollar deposit to hold your seat and the balance isn’t due until you arrive on site.

To Sign Up and Join Us for Our Workshop running from March 22-24 with camping available form March 21-25 just click here. 

This time I am also doing a really cool contest, be ready to take a lot of pictures (not at the barter blanket) is all I will say about that for now.

What are we going to cover this time around, well I have 14 awesome instructors plus myself and we are going to provide 15 awesome workshops in 3 days time, get ready for a knowledge upload in a big way.  Here is what we are covering,

  • Knife Making – After this class you will know how to complete a kit knife even if you don’t do the hands on extra class.  Yep all of the sudden KnifeKits.com will be a more interesting website.  And Patrick Roehrman will teach those that upgrade his master craft.
  • Small Engine Maintenance – Chris Prater will be teaching this and he is always awesome and shows you how to do things for a dollar that others pay a hundred to acomplish.
  • Homestead Automation – Instructor Charlie Fairchild will show you how to easily automate your homestead and save hours and dollars.
  • Alcohol Infusions and Fermented Foods – Some guy named Spirko is going to show you how to make a 50 dollar bottle of liquor for 5 bucks and how to make healthy fermented foods to heal your body if you over indulge.
  • Sous Vide Cooking – Jake Robinson and that Spirko guy will show you how to make steaks and more that will blow away your friends and family.
  • Building an AR15 – How would you like to save a couple hundred bucks on your next AR?  It isn’t that hard the basics of building your own will be covered in only one hour flat.
  • Roasting Coffee – Nicole “Awesome Sauce” (that is what I call her) will show you not just how to roast your own coffee but how she doesn’t just save money, she makes money doing it. We call that function stacking.
  • The Trump Economic Impact – Love him or hate him Donald Trump is president and like it or not, he is “getting shit done”, what will the economic impact of his first 100 days be long term, John Pugliano will tell you what is coming.
  • Aquaponics – Do you think aquaponics is too complicated, or cost to much to do.  While we will be showing off my large installation, Richard Hasting will be showing you how anyone can set up aquaponics and produce more food in less space than you can imagine.
  • High Density Food Production – This is being done by my buddy David Seigler, in some years he and his wife produce up to 70% of their calories from their own land.  Oh by the way it is a suburban Fort Worth property.  And he will tell you how to offset your costs by selling things to Yuppies, things you would have never thought of.  Yea really!
  • Homesteading on a Budget and Cover Crop See Mixes – Nick Ferguson is a master of doing more with less, so as to make  homesteading profitable and he will also teach you to make your own seed mixes and save both the earth and your wallet in the process.
  • Solar Power – Karen Houston who has 30 years of experience as a master electrician will teach you how to make solar power work for you, both on and off grid.
  • Wood Working – In fact anarchist wood working!  What is that, it is building amazing stuff with nothing but hand tools.  Instructor Brad Fullbright will show you what it is all about.
  • Special Unadvertised Bonuses – If I told you what this was, I would ruin it wouldn’t I?

On top of all this there will be home made apple cider on draft, mead and beer tasting, some of the coolest people you will ever meet and frankly I don’t think you could eat the way we feed you over three days for half the cost of attendance.  If you leave here hungry you are either a vegan or well, you are a vegan!

So if you have always wanted to come to one of our workshops, come to this one, make the time and you won’t regret it.  The after hours time, the bonding with like minded individuals alone is worth it.

Our property is about 30 minutes from DFW Airport and many students ride share, etc. to get here, so even if you have to fly in, airfare is generally reasonable and you can just bring enough to camp, or get a hotel, food is not going to be a problem, I promise you.

MT Knives Add On Class for the TSP Workshop

Patrick Roehrman will be doing an add on knife making class at the 2017 fall workshop.  Interested students will need to sign up with him directly, you can find full details here.

This is a great opportunity, Patrick will be helping 10 students complete a knife that would easily sell for more than 300 dollars and the price of the class is 300 dollars.  In essence you can choose to decide how you look at it, you are either buying the knife and getting the education for free, or buying the education and getting the knife free, either one is a pretty sweet deal.

The way this will work is, Patrick will be our first instructor with a 1 hour session for all on the general principles of making a knife, this will be best for people buying pre made blanks and handle materials.  Every student will be part of this but it won’t be hands on.

Then for 2 hours a day, plus likely some down time and sessions some don’t wish to attend he will help those who purchase the add on complete an awesome custom knife, one you can’t even buy from him.

Please note this is ONLY FOR STUDENTS OF THE SPRING WORKSHOP who have already secured a seat to it, please do not sign up for this if you are not a student or instructor at the TSP 2017 Fun and Skills Workshop.

To learn more and claim one of the ten spots
go to this link at the MT Knives website.

PS – Please understand that this add on is being 100% run by Patrick, other than purchasing some tools for my shop so students can use them I am not involved, any arrangements, special deals, questions on it need to go to him, not me.  I will have my hands full today making sure all of my students get their info packets, questions answered etc.

TSP Workshop Fall Videos Posted to the MSB and Spring Workshop Announced

I have just added all the videos (20 of them) from the TSP Fall Workshop to the MSB.  They are all hosted on Vimeo, you can stream them or download them it is your choice.

Each video requires a password, the password and links to all the videos is posted on the “Video” Page in the MSB, you can log in here to access them.  If you are not a member consider joining today, the value of the information in these videos is easily worth a year of dues alone.

PLEASE NOTE in the MSB you will see a heading for these videos that says “Fall 2016 Videos from our TSP Workshop – These Videos are on Vimeo, you can download them there.  Used code _____ to access each of them. ”   That ONE CODE works for all of those videos.

Next Dorothy and I have settled on dates for our Spring Workshop, they will be March 23-25.  With set up on the 22nd and students can stay over until Sunday the 26th, to be off property by 11AM that day.

No further details or ability to sign up are available yet except the basic format will be like our fall event was.  A “fun and skills” theme with multiple instructors each doing about a one hour presentation.

On that note I am looking for people that want to teach a class.  This time I think we are going to do 5 classes a day for 3 days for a total of 15 sessions with some bonus sessions tossed in.  7 a day was a bit much in the fall event.

So I will not take every instructor that applies.  The deal for instructors is the same as last time.  If you are approved you get

  1.  A guaranteed seat at the class (last time we sold out in two hours)
    `
  2.  A discount of 100 dollars off the event (due to space limits I can’t give instructors free seats)

To apply email me at jack at thesurvivalpodcast.com with TSPC event instructor in the subject line.  Pitch me your class and the basics of what it will include in one to two paragraphs.  If you email me and don’t hear back that I got it in 24  hours please reemail me so you don’t slip though the cracks.

I am going to give about 2 weeks of applications before making my decisions but will email you back that I got your application right away.
