Jeff Smith of Desert Ops Training & Tony discuss how critical it is for preppers to engage in self-reliance and tactical training. Buying prep items is only part of the solution. Buying preps without using them and thinking you are prepared is like thinking you can defend your family if you buy a gun but never practice shooting it. Jeff describes the take-a-ways students receive from many of his most popular courses offered by his school, Desert Ops Training including Bug Out Bags, Traps & Snares, Land Navigation, etc. Jeff & Tony also discuss the upcoming The Prepper Games competition they are planning in the summer of 2014.
Marjory summarizes numerous interviews of Cuban citizens who experienced a total economic collapse and faced starvation after the fall of the Soviet Union. The social order reversed, where farmers and gardeners became more important than lawyers and doctors as all citizens scrambled to grow food to replace imports that stopped. Listen for keys to how Cuban’s survived as guidance for how American’s should look to prepare for when the Yankee dollar goes through its collapse. Great opportunity to learn from Cuban suffering to anticipate and minimize our own challenges from future U.S. economic collapse.
