Real-World Survival Lessons From Hurricane Fiona! [WL 426]

Mother Nature doesn’t watch movies.

So if you’re thinking that prepping for a natural disaster should be based on what Hollywood – or even local media – is telling you to do, you could fall far short in being ready for a hurricane, tornado, flood, or other crisis.

If you want to know what a REAL natural disaster looks like and how to prepare for it, you need inside perspective from those who have actually lived through it – made their mistakes… and learned their lessons.

THAT, my fellow warrior, is exactly what we have in store for you in this week’s show…

    Great advice especially developing community while also retaining personal defense skills. Thank you

  • Growing up in the New Orleans area, I’ve deal with Floods, Hurricanes, and the problems resulting from them. I started to put a kit together, when I was young, and now my kit includes lots of items. During a power outage, I still have AC and the comforts of home. I also have included guns and ammo in my kit, in order to keep my gear. I have been working before, during and after some of the worst storms (Katrina / Ida) and others. Things can get quite nasty, so the better you’re prepared, the better off you will be after.

  • Very enlightening session. Thanks. Vegetables give me a lot of gas. So I really have to limit their intake. Gardening is really out of the question for me. One of the questions I cannot seem to get answered is how to take advantage of my basement dehumidifier water. I have to empty my tank every evening by pouring the water from it into my basement floor drain. All of that water just has to be usable for something. I am open to suggestions. Thanks.

    Another great podcast, Jeff! I liked the focus that your friend Marjory places on Building Community. And as Robert put it so well (I think our key to surviving whatever Crap Storm may lie ahead for US) will be “…developing community while also retaining personal defense skills”. For Horace, I’m no Doctor but you might want to try some over-the-counter Digestive Enzymes and a good Prebiotic & Probiotic Supplement that help digest a wide range of Vegetables more efficiently (w/o the gas). And if you can afford them, nowadays there are some very good long-shelf-life concentrated freeze-dried Fruits & Vegetables Supplements available in both powdered and capsule form that I find well worth their cost when it comes to maintaining a balanced diet. And as far as using the Condensation Water from a Dehumidifier, mine warns against drinking it directly. But I DON’T THINK that’s due to anything toxic in the system or storage tank necessarily. Rather, I THINK the risks are primarily associated with Bacteria and Mold growth over time. I suspect the right water filter (e.g., Berkey, etc.) could make water from our Dehumidifier Condensation Buckets safe to drink (I’m going to look into it for sure). But don’t quote me on that. At the very least I would think you could use it for your plants or boil it and use it for washing. Condensation from the air is like rainwater. Generally, it’s the materials which that ‘distilled’ water comes in contact with afterward over time that make it impure since it contains no chlorine or other disinfectants.
