Ian – PODCAST CHALLENGE
Try to walk, eventually with your bugout bag, or it’s equivalent weight, 5k for 5 days out of 7. Bonus points if the equivalent weight is including a plate carrier:).
Alternatively , bike 20k ( or jog 2 miles) 5 days out of 7, then once you’re used to it, with a 30 lb weighted backpack on.
Keep it up until it’s a habit, it gets easier. Full disclosure, I am still working on the ‘weighted’ aspect….
Do an actual bug out on foot… (weather dependent)
Ian – my ‘ unnamed’ homesteading mentor. Also watches the show. Hanging with him is like drinking from the fire hose of knowledge, yet very fun! He has been very generous with his time lately!
Also : MDRGC on CGN, Bogie on GOC. Raises money for kid’s programs at his local Vancouver range by sorting spent brass on his own time, selling it cheapest on the internet for us reloaders.
Alan – instagram shoutout to textbook_survival. A bunch of cool tips and tricks, some printables, and just overall a cool person to get to know
