Bug Out Bag Documents

Today we’re going to talk all about bug out bag documents. It is maybe the most neglected prep but one of the easiest and most important. 

Bug out bag documents are all the important documents you will need in a disaster stored in a binder usually ready to go. 

I’m talking about things like copies of your driver’s license, bank account numbers, and phone numbers to your local utilities. 

In the event that you need to bug out, you do not want to be wasting time trying to find these documents. And you definitely do not want to be without them. 

After hurricane Katrina, many were left without ID’s, insurance cards or banking access. That caused some major headaches. People could not access their bank accounts without their debit cards or Id’s. 

 

With these bug out documents, you will have these with you. You my prepper friend do have your bug out documents ready right?

If the answer is no I’ll help get you squared away. I am by no means perfect. My own documents need to be updated. So this is a good time to go through what needs to be done.

This week the main topic of the show is Best Natural Home Remedies For Colds. For me, this is a very timely episode. Since I have been fighting the crud. 
 
The odd thing Is I never get sick. Maybe every few years I will get a super bug and have it take me out. This is one of those times. 
 
First up we talk about the hot toddy. My recommendation has always been to use Moonshine to cure coughs. In the podcast, I say 2tbsps of Honey. That’s wrong it is 1 tbsp of honey. 
 
  • 1 Shot of Moonshine
  • 1 TBSP Honey
  • A squeeze of lemon juice. 
The next item on my list of Natural Home Remedies For Colds is pine needle tea. If you are cheap and want a free source of vitamin c pine needles are amazing. 
 
I have used steaming cups of pine needle tea to get through many a rough cold. I like it best to start drinking it at the very onset of a cold. To stop it right in its tracks. 
 
I will also supplement with vitamin c. And in very high doses. Somewhere in the 16~20 grams per day range. For me above the 20 grams per day will cause many bathroom visits. 
 
The winter is the time to make sure you are taking vitamin D. Chances are you like most Americans are deficient in vitamin D. 
 
In the winter with even less sunlight, this problem is exasperated. So get some good quality vitamin D supplements and start taking them daily.

Silver Fern Brand Low Carb Baking Mixes First Thoughts

A lot of times when I’m sent food for review I have to wait for a cheat day. With the Silver Fern Brand Low Carb Baking Mixes, I’m not going to have to. 

Silver Fern makes some high-quality low-carb items. Looking through their baking mixes and had a hard time picking only two. 

I went with Lemon bars and chocolate chip cookies. I was going to have Serenity make help these for me. So we will have to wait until Christmas to eat them. 

Reading about the ingredients I came across Kakato™ a naturally high fiber sweetener. Which is a proprietary sweetener blend. 

The Kakato is Contains: Natural Isomalto-Oligosaccharides, Tagatose, Stevia Extract, Monk Fruit Extract, Natural Flavor. The monk fruit extract worries me. 

Years ago I tried Monk Fruit extract and I had pounding headaches every time. So we will see how I fare with the Kakato. 

I’m thinking about ordering just the kakato sweetener for Couch Potato Mike to try. He can’t stand any sweetener that does not have calories. Except for xylitol. And that gives him the poops. 

If I do I’ll make sure I’ll let you guys know how it works out.

3 Reasons You’ll love Wish App For Survival Gear

Have you use the wish app for survival gear yet? Why not? I’ve mentioned it on the podcast a few times. It’s kinda like amazon for Chinese made goods. 

Before you say anything about not buying chinses stuff I don’t even want to hear it. The stuff you can get locally is all Chinese made and cost more. 

I would rather pay less and get the same thing. 

When I first heard of the wish app I was not impressed. None of the things I was looking for at the time were on there. Of course, I was looking for Olympic weights. Not the cheapest things to send. 

I mostly thought that it was for trinkets and jewelry. Being a manly man I cared not for these things. 

When I actually decided to give it a try I found out how amazing the wish app is for survival gear. Since then I have made several purchases I’m happy with. 

So what makes the Wish Ap for Great for Survival? Let’s dig into a few points.
