Stay or Go - Go Presentation from 2016 Bring Out Your BOV Show & Shine

The 2016 Bring Out Your BOV Show & Shine was a success, even though we had less vehicles to demo at our host Briden's Solutions.

We had outstanding success in being part of the presentation team to help those planning for their own or their family's evacuation. With not less than 70 persons in attendance, the bay was packed with eager learners.

As promised to those in attendance, here are the slides from the Stay or Go - Go presentation, presented by Justin (aka Dangphool) and myself - Mountainman. Yes, if you were paying attention you will have noticed I did not have to do very much of the actual talking to that huge crowd. And for that I am thankful, I am not comfortable with public speaking in groups larger than say 20 - 24 persons. Even then, I have to really know my material before, that can be a comfortable time. I did have a hand in preparing the information that was presented so professionally by Justin. THANKS Justin!!

Now, on with the slideshow:

(Quick thank you and shoutout to: SmallPDF https://smallpdf.com/pdf-to-jpg   &  FreePDFConvert https://www.freepdfconvert.com/ Their free conversion software allowed me to quickly convert our PDF slides to JPG for posting on my Blog. Thank you!!)

Enjoy,

Mountainman.

A G.O.O.D. Shelter Video from Kids of Five 56 Concepts Canada

Evenin' All,

The Kids of Five 56 Concepts Canada have published two more videos on YouTube. Both are worth watching and I will post the links to both videos.

The video on shelter building is very helpful and useful, especially for anyone who will have to live at their Safe Zone / Bugout Location for a prolonger period of time. What I like the most, is these shelters are made with mostly natural resources, a couple of poly tarps and basic gear you would carry in a bugout bag or in your vehicle.

Here is the link:



The second video I will link to is actually their first video in this series, and it is a show & tell video about the gear they carry in their rucksacks. The more bugout bags and kit lists you get to review the better you can make your own bugout bag. In case anyone forgot, fitness is a G.O.O.D. skill. You have to be fit to carry a 60lbs ruck cross-country for prolonged periods of time......just saying.

Here is the link:


These videos are great learning tools for all in the emergency preparedness community. Kids teaching kids, is an awesome idea. Kids teaching adults, is even better.

Keep on learning,

V.A.M.

Prepper Nurse Video - Wake Up Call

Just a quick post today.

Prepper Nurse (from YouTube) has posted this new video:


The message is clear, those who are in the emergency preparedness community, the time is NOW! To share your knowledge with others in your local community. If a community survives a disaster, almost everyone will survive a disaster. If you are holed up in your bunker and when you exit, there may not be anything to exit to!!

Share your knowledge and grow a community!!
