Episode-2295- EDC Wearable Survival Gear with Dustin Hogard and Nick Blackman

Dustin Hogard, and Nick Blackman of Wazoo Survival Gear

What happens when you combine a Mechanical/Aerospace Engineer, an Adventure Guide, and a mutual love for the outdoors? Wazoo Survival Gear!

They design, create, and field test products engineered to save lives. The adventurer, Dustin Hogard, and the engineer, Nick Blackman, crossed paths for the first time in 2012 near Houston, Texas over a few pints of craft brew. That meeting was the beginning of a very unlikely partnership that has now spawned an entire new industry of wearable gear.

With the office walls covered in working design concepts and existing products such as a business card that can act as a fire starter, a belt with a hidden compartment, a hat with hidden pockets, or a beer sleeve with survival tips, Wazoo continues to strive to make survival sexy and emphasis the “fun” in functional.

Episode-2294- What You Do Matters

I have been working on a new book, it is called “30 Laws of Life”, the catchy marketing strap line has yet to be written.   We have been doing pictures for each of these laws followed by one minute videos on our new Instagram account.

I  have also started getting up early every day and writing the book, one chapter per law.  I am doing about a chapter per every 1-2 days of writing.  Today I completed the draft for chapter six.

Spirko’s sixth law of life is also one of my survival tenets, “what you do matters”.

This will be the subject of today’s show because it is what way to many Americans have forgotten.  This is why people are more concerned over who the next court justice or president is than what happens in their own back yard.

Join Me Today to Discuss…

  • A quick trip back to 2012 – If I wanted to save America
  • Why I am writing this book
  • These laws are not my laws, they are laws I live by
  • These laws are also natural laws, and what that means
  • The lesson of what you do matters broken down
    • The America of the 1970s compared to 2018
    • What you do doesn’t just affect you, the good and the bad
    • How this law as saved lives and why that is good and bad
    • You are a self learning computer, and you write your own code
    • How this law pertains to your internal mental programming
    • Why there has never been a more powerful time to use this law
  • Since what you do matters, what are you going to do

Episode-2289- Practical Homesteading in the Modern Age

Sometimes I feel society in on the edge of yet another split.  Those that value things like gardens, back yard birds and foraging, and those who don’t but see no value in such things.  These people look around and see  a world when you can summon a car with a cell phone, to either take you to dinner or bring dinner to you.

Unlike 2008 when I began the journey of this podcast, the economy is booming.  Right now if you don’t have a job, frankly don’t really want one.  Everyone is hiring.  Every day some new technical marvel is unveiled.  Alternative energy is really beginning to stop looking so “alternative”.  It seems in perhaps a decade electricity may be almost free in relative terms.

Computers are continuing to become better, smarter, faster and cheaper.  Anything you want from lobster tails to fine silk can be delivered to your home in 12-24 hours from the almighty Amazon.  You can understand when it comes to homesteading why some people are like, why bother?

The other side though is pretty amazing.  We have people on YouTube documenting their homesteading journeys with hundreds of thousands of people following them.   A few such people have more than a million followers.  Sites like Pinterest and Instagram are full of pictures and short videos of everything from “square foot gardens” to urban chicken tractors.   Celebrity Chefs like Guy Fieri show off their backyard flocks and compost piles.

Yes even in a world of high speed processors and “Door Dash” food delivery the back yard homestead is thriving in 2018.  Today we discuss ways to be a practical homesteader in the modern world.

Join Me Today To Discuss…

  • Why do we homestead
    • Humans are cultivators
    • As much for recreation as for production
    • The quality of food we can produce
  • Some rules for happy homesteading
    • One project at a time
    • Start with something easy and fun
    • Set and respect a budget
    • Build management into daily activities (smart zone design)
  • Some of my favorite projects for homesteading
    • Back yard birds (composting system)
    • Of course a kitchen garden (gotta love wicking beds)
    • Set up a seed starting system (lights, etc)
    • Building a solar heater
    • Lean how to can food
    • Install rainwater catchment
    • Creating habitat, natural spaces, attracting wildlife
  • Final Thoughts
