Episode-180- Survival Podcast Listener Calls 4-15-09 — 7 Comments

  1. First, I’m lovin’ podcast and the great information. The moldy pancake tip was important for me since I can’t handle mold.

    Also, since you have scolded people in the past for buying guns and ammo BEFORE getting more critical resources in place, I have a tip for those interested in self defense.

    You might want to look up on iTunes “Warrior Pages”. Even though it is like watching mini-karate lessons, you don’t have to have a background in it to get some “valuable” information from it. I would advise looking at it even if you already have a gun, etc. because you may not be able to get to your weapon of choice.

    It might be nice to know how to take an attacker down from watching a few minutes of karate here and there. Some of the video has some challenges, but all in all it is a very good podcast. I watch and listen to others since I can’t “afford” a gun right now.

  2. good show.
    FYI to the gardenere in Wy.. Come on out to the Zone 7 board on the forum.. We would be happy to help. We live it every day.

  3. @Trash,

    Thanks for being such a great community member! I should have made that suggestion too huh? I guess done right TSP will always be a team/family/community effort cause God knows I need you guys to cover my six at times!

  4. To wyo,

    I also live in wyoming, and know our last freeze date could be as late as may 30th and our zone is more like a 4 or a 5. Take advantage of perenial plants like strawberries, raspberries, and chives. I live in Cheyenne and mine are already up. Plant tender plants in pots and take them in when a freeze is expected then plant them in the ground after freeze date. Hope this helps.

  5. region 7 is the region that Jack gave us on the forums. and thats how i referenced it.
    Come on in and join us in the board as we can talk about that stuff.

  6. I heard your recent comment about not being able to carry a weapon on a plane.
    There is one weapon you can always bring with you on a plane:

    A cane.

    It is illegal for airline security to challenge your claim of having a
    disability therefore they should never question you walking with a cane. There
    are several techniques for using a cane in self defense situations (you can
    easily imagine.)
    Just make sure you get a solid body cane that is made from dense wood, and is
    comfortable (looks natural) for you to walk with.

    It might not win a gun fight, but you should easily be able to thwart a threat
    from a small knife, or an unruly attacker in a closed environment.
