Episode-639- Ron Hood on Every Day Carry — 17 Comments

  1. Great Show! You guys are a riot!!

    Great idea talking about cancer, its still prepping because everyone should be mentally prepared if you or your loved one gets it. My wife has cancer and you guys are spot on about how it effects her moods and depression and I was totally shocked about how it effects me and I dont even have cancer. Its a real challenge to stay upbeat and positive through all the stuff you have to go through to fight this disease. Getting cancer is the SHTF scenario. It will change everything in your life and plans. Be prepared for it by reading about it and about alternative treatments and about normal treatments. Know what to expect.

  2. Just because women are “accustomed” to mood swings, doesn’t mean we like them. I *wish* I had the crying thing happen more often. Instead, I get ticked at any little thing and make DH want to crawl into a cave over nothing.

    @Robert VB: I don’t believe in magic bullets, but I’ve heard great things about marine phytoplankton and cancer. I think it would be a worthy supplement to add to your wife’s diet at this time. My 2cents, take or leave.

  3. Robert, been there done that. And yes, cancer is a SHTF scenario. My husband, before he died, said,”The end of the world is not necessarily an event. Everyone will experience the end of their world at one time or another”. Live the best you can. Be the best you can, in all things. We do take what we learn here into the next life.

  4. RE: Today’s audio quality:




    Whatever equipment or connection you guys had, try and duplicate it in the future.

  5. I loved this show Jack. The info was great and gave me some new ideas to implement into my EDC. Also, to hear what Ron has gone through and how he’s handled/handling it is inspiring. Thanks to both of you for this show.


  6. @Oil Lady that is always the case when the other person also has skype and we are recording skype to skype, unfortunately not all the people I interview have skype.

  7. Ron Hood’s recovery is a survival story that was the best part of this podcast.

  8. I loved this show with Ron! What a great interview.He has a world of knowledge,it would be great to have him on more and focus on one or two ares of prepping/survival at a time.It could be worked into a nice series of interviews.

  10. One thing on the Para cord bracelets. A lot of military guys like to wear them, not for preparedness they think it looks cool but the higher-ups hate it and have made it “UNAUTHORIZED”. An easy way around this is to make the 550 cord bracelet into a “watchband”. Using black helps too.

  11. My last two Buck knives were made in China… One a fixed blade for hunting and a 3″ folder. Both were great knives but not as nice as my Gerbers.
