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.

In this second part to the Winter prepping series we talk about calories. In the cold you will burn more calories. You need to make sure you count for that in your preps. I have a few thoughts on storing calories for winter. Like we talk about not all calories are  equal. You will not find advice here to store up on Twinkies. Twinkies are not fit for human consumption. The only reason to store them is for barter with Woody Harrelson.

In fact we can come out of winter beach ready. Last year over winter I lost 30 pounds to get down to High school weight. Calories for winter prepping can help you or hurt you. I’ll show you how to not only store the most possible calories but to store the healthiest. Let’s jump right into Calories for Winter Prepping.
