This week we cover defensive driving. How to stay safe on the roads. 

I got this question in from a listener and knew it would be a great topic. 

I talk about the lesson my Uncle taught me when I was learning to drive. To treat all other drivers like idiots. 

That lesson has served me well over the years. And so far without any accidents. 

To implement the rule I imagine a bubble around my car and try to not let any cars in it.  I don’t tailgate nor allow myself to be tailgated. 

In generally don’t like vehicles on my sides either. 

I talked about using your situational awareness while driving. 

Just like you would know the exits when in a restaurant know your exits while driving. And I don’t mean interstate exits. 

I mean to say how you would avoid collisions, traffic jams etc. 

I go on to cover what to do if your being followed and chased.

This week I talk about changing out your bug out bag for winter. It was originally intended to be a winter and summer episode but I realized that would be a very long episode. 

Depending on where you live your BoB needs to be changed out seasonaly. My preence is Winter and Summer. You can coast through spring and fall.

This week I welcome on Harlan Meeks to the podcast. He is the host of the Low Watt Living Podcast.

On his podcast, Harlan Meeks covers a wide variety of topics on backup power, alternative energies, and survival. 

We talk about keeping your lights on during a power outage. From using rechargeable batteries in your headlamp to generators.
