Bugging Out To Walmart
Thinking about Bugging Out To Walmart? Is that you plan for the P.A.W? If so you might want to listen to today’s show. I remember before I got into survival I had lot’s of idiotic plans for when The shit hits the fan. Bugging Out To Walmart was one of them. Though the word plan could hardly be applied.
Many think that during an apocalyptic situation they will just stroll into the local box store and load up. Fill their shopping cart up and drive home like usual sans the payment. That they will get to the store first and hold it as a fortress. They also believe that they are the only ones that have ever though about this.

Gary Collins on Advanced Nutrition.
This week we talk Advanced nutrition with Gary Collins. After having Gary on about his off grid project I wanted to pick his brain on more nutrition. Gary, creator of the primal power method, has been in the industry longer than the competition. He is one of the few Master Level personal trainers. He knows his stuff when it comes to advanced nutrition.
I hit Gary with some tough ones this week. Many questions that I have on my health journey. I feel though that many have the same problems. There is a lot of talk in the health blogs on intermittent fasting, gut health, and weight loss stalls.
Gary handles all my hard ball questions without flinching. The mark of a true expert. On many points we agreed completely. On a few I heard answers I didn’t expect. That got me excited. One of Gary’s tops supplements he recommends is turmeric. That’s not something you hear from others in the field.
Gary goes in-depth on the topics. We spent a good 20 minutes on just intermittent fasting. The whys and hows. We also talk about who fasting is not for. It is a great tool for weight loss. But not right for everyone. Definitely not for beginners, elite athletes or bodybuilders. If you are trying to put on mass restricting your eating to a small window is stupid. If you are largely sedentary and trying to lose the last few pounds it works great.
I love Gary’s take on blood work and supplements. There are several supplements to be taking without any blood work. Vitamin D3 is one. We can guarantee that if you live in the continental 48 you need it. If blood testing was cheaper testing would be or viable.

Winter Car Maintenance
Winter Car Maintenance
This week Mike and I are joined by Grizz to talk about winter car maintenance. Grizz is my head admin on the Survivalpunk Facebook page. He knows a thing or two about winter car maintenance. Grizz lives somewhere in the frozen wasteland of Michigan.
He has grown up a prepper and mechanic his whole life. He now works as an airplane mechanic. Which in my opinion is the most important. If you mess up planes drop out of the sky.
Grizz gives us some tips on winter car maintenance. Including some overlooked ones. We talk about tools and spare parts you should keep. How much is too much?
Since he is also a prepper we talk cold weather preps too. What extra considerations are needed in your vehicle preps in the north. There you might want to consider a portable heater. Here in the south zero degree rated sleeping bags are enough. Since you can’t carry water you need to plan on melting snow. So you will need a pot and stove.
A good pair of cold weather boots is important too. Don’t get stuck with Desert combat boots like me in the snow. They are not made for the cold or that much moisture.
Don’t forget to stop by the Fanpage and thank Grizz.

Today I’m joined by Author David Kershner. David has written the Foreign and Domestic book series. David takes a unique take on a societal collapse. I’ve not seen authors cover the collapse of the food system before. The food system is one of my main concerns. Both in availability and quality.
The overarching theme in Part ,When Rome Stumbles, deals with the downfall of America’s food system. Government malfeasance and corporate corruption is what breaks the food system finally. Hannibal is at the Gates brings about our financial collapse as our former colonial adversaries, along with major US debt owners, orchestrate a financial coup. His most recent effort, By the Dawn’s Early Light, but now introduces a HANE/EMP to complicate matters. He is currently writing Part IV, Colder Weather.
We talk about The food system quiet a lot. being something we are both very passionate about. We get off on some tangents and getting David reeled in was an effort but it was a great chat. Consider checking out David’s highly rated books. I hear I may be getting killed off in the next one. Which is a dream of mine.

Jeff Nimoy On Paleo
This week Mike and I are Joined by Jeff Nimoy. He is an Emmy Award winning actor/writer/director/producer. Jeff runs both the cooking caveman blog and the dating site SamePlate.
I came across Jeff’s blog years ago when I was first looking for an easy Paleo Bread recipe. As mentioned before I’m a terrible baker. So all my previous attempts had been failures. Jeff’s recipe was so easy a caveman could do it. While on his site I read his bio. That’s when I noticed he did a voice in one of my favorite Animes. TriGun as Wolfwood.
On top of creating great recipes Jeff created SamePlate. Sameplate reviewed by me here. Sameplate matches couples based on what they do or do not eat. You can find paleo, vegan, gluten-free or even another pizza addict. Which is either very important to you or not at all. I like the idea of finding someone concerned about what they eat. For others it could be a matter of life or death with food allergies. So if you are single go sign up.
We talk about what Paleo means to Jeff. Why he decided to go paleo. His best and worst paleo creations and much more.
As always please leave us ITunes Feedback if you dig the show.
