Rich Fleetwood will be back on the show for the 3rd time to discuss the survivalist, preparedness, and self-reliance mindsets. Talk show for those wanting to be able to be or become prepared for the uncertain future. Though we have no control over natural disasters, or little control over people-caused disasters, and a few controls over personal ones, we are in control of how we prepare for them and how we ultimately deal with them.
We discussed several areas of interest, but the main topics focused on definitions and foundations of what a survivalist is, what a preparedness practitioner is, and what self reliance is. We talked about the survival mindset, the basics of human nature and the survival instinct, what self reliance has to do with every day living, and what it takes to begin to development the basics of psychological preparedness.
We touched on the 72 hour kit, as the beginning to longer term readiness, and what some of the basics were in developing a kit. James mentioned that next week, I’ll return to his show and the topic will focus on creating your own 72 hour kit, suggestions of tools and supplies, regional or family differences in these kits, and how successfully getting your own kit put together can lead to 1 month, 6 month, or 1 year preparedness plans.
I provided a few verbal tips on finding the 72 hour kit page on SurvivalRing, which is located here... I’ll be adding more info on these kits and their creation here on the SurvivalRing blog before next weeks show.
James mentioned the new Preparedness Expo project he is helping get started, and that this Expo project is about to start off in Atlanta this spring, and that the promoters had set up a survey site to gather input on future show locations, potential speakers and exhibitors, and other things that will help with putting together future shows across the nation. You can find the survey on this page.
Finally James, did mention our SurvivalRing Newsletter, which I’ve started producing on a bimonthly basis (and I’ve started on the next issue), and features that listeners could find here at the SurvivalRing website.
All in all, a very good show.
