The Changing Earth Behind the Scenes: Day After Disaster Young Adult Edition

I was at "The Christmas in Cool" event a couple of weekends ago when I was approached by a teenager who desperately wanted to read my book. I have been followed around by this teenager whenever I am at an event around my home. She is just one of many teenagers who approach me and ask if they can get a copy of my book Day After Disaster but her persistence encouraged me to make an edition of Day After Disaster that is appropriate for teenagers.

Day After Disaster is an exciting apocalyptic story about a young woman, wife and mother who is separated from her family when all heck brakes loose and she must journey back to her home in the foothills to see if they survived. Given that it is an apocalyptic survival story, when I originally wrote the story I wanted to have it as realistic as possible. A couple of scenes are sexually explicit.

As a Christian woman, when teenagers approached me and wanted to purchase the book, I did not feel right about selling this content to a young individual. I read the book to my own son but I edited these scenes as I read. I would have to talk to their parents and see if it was okay with them but deep down it didn't feel right. As the teenagers kept persuading me to sell them this book it made it obvious to me that I needed to do something. So I took the story and softened the sexual scenes to make them appropriate for teen readers.

Now everyone can enjoy the adventure! Order your copy!

Racking the Slide - Survival Pin of the Month


Two FBI background checks were done every second on Black Friday this year. I highly support the American right to own a firearm and I recommend that you have one to protect yourself and your family. But a tool is not worth much if you don't know how to use it and a gun is just that, a tool. You must know how to use it and be familiar with it. In other words, don't wait until your tire is flat to learn how to use your jack.

Firing a gun is a little more complicated than just pulling the trigger. First and foremost you have to know the safety rules that need to be applied one hundred percent of the time. You have to know how to hold it properly. You have know how to load the magazine and how to rack the slide. You have to know how to aim it, how to handle the recoil, how to handle yourself in a hostile situation. You need to have awareness of your weapon at all times to prevent accidental injury. With so much to learn it can be a little off-putting and sound like a lot of work. Honestly, it is! But it is something you must do if you want to feel comfortable protecting yourself and your family.

The reason that I picked this pin as the pin of the month is it is a great article from thewellarmedwoman.com about using technique rather than strength to rack the gun, which can be a big challenge for some ladies, older folks or small men. They give an excellent run down of how the energy from the first bullet works and how you can rack that gun easily and what calibers may be best for you. But more than that I wanted to draw attention to The Well Armed Woman organization. It is a great organization to be a part of if you are a female. Going to the gun range full of male testosterone can be a little intimidating, this organization is all about females getting together with other females and trained female instructors to learn to handle firearms in a safe environment. I have members of the family that are part of this organization and have nothing but good things to say. This is for you ladies. Find out where your local chapter meets and get out there and practice.

Another organization I want to highlight is Project Appleseed.  This is a group which gets together to honor rifle shooting. They instruct about the profound history of rifles in the United States and teach multiple positions of shooting your rifle on the range. There is a meeting by you and it is inexpensive to get your family out there for the weekend. Make it a family event and get some more rifle practice in.

The bottom line here is support your right to bear arms but don't just buy a gun, train to shoot the gun so it can be a reliable tool if you need it.

10 Items to Pack on Your Winter Drive

My dad is planning a trip up to the north of Michigan, into Minnesota and then across the upper portion of the United States. He and my brother will be hitting ski resorts all the way until they get to California. It sounds like a great trip but the inner survivalist in me has some concerns about them tackling these roads in the middle of winter. In an effort to keep them safe I went ahead and composed this list of 10 items that they should have with them on their winter adventure.
  1. Water - They need to have a supply of drinkable water. I would suggest having some water stored in the cab so it doesn't get frozen but also to have a couple of metal cups for heating ice or snow over a flame to make drinkable water. If they are concerned about the purity of this water source they should also carry a Lifestraw to drink the water and make sure it is bacteria free.
  2. Fire - They need a way to keep warm if the vehicle were to get stuck or break down. I recommend having a metal coffee can with a big candle inside. This way they can have the flame safely in the vehicle. They will also need a source of flame like a Bic lighter or waterproof matches.
  3. Food - They need to have plenty of food on hand. Things like beef jerky and trial mix are power packed and easy to carry. I would also recommend some pemmican bars but they are not the survivalists that I am and would probably have no idea what a pemmican bar is so jerky and trail mix will do.
  4. Blankets and warm clothes - Given that they are skiing they will have plenty of winter gear, including gloves, jackets, covers for their pants, face masks, etc. Remember cotton kills. Cotton once wet will suck the heat from your body so you should avoid cotton clothing in the winter, wool or a poly-blend is best. They should also have some blankets to keep warm.
  5. Cell phone - Of course they will have their phones but they also need a way to charge them. A vehicle charger is sufficient as long as you have a car battery to charge it. They should also have a solar or crank charger so that if the battery is dead and the sun is not shining they can still get a charge to call for help.
  6. Light - They should have a quality flashlight with them and plenty of batteries!
  7. Shovel and Sand - If stuck a shovel and sand may be just what they need to get unstuck. The shovel is obvious but sand can help weigh the back of a rear wheel drive vehicle down, giving you more traction. It can also be poured on the snow to help your tires get more traction.
  8. Knife and multi-tool - Everyone should always carry a knife and multi-tool in an every day carry pack but especially when winter driving. The uses are numerous.
  9. Extra battery, jumper cables, spare tire, jack and tools - They need to make sure they have the resources to handle any emergency. Wouldn't it be nice to have an extra battery if yours were to go dead? The problem would be instantly solved. Of course if there is help nearby the jumper cables would be useful but if not, the backup battery would be key. They should also have the tools to handle any tire issues. There is nothing worse than having a flat and a spare with no jack.
  10. Toilet Paper - If they are stuck the reasons to have toilet paper are obvious. Given they are guys it may not seem like a necessity but if they are stranded for an extended time it may be more important than previously realized. It would also make a great source of flammable material to keep them warm.
If you can think of anything I missed please add it to the list. Wishing my dad and brother a very safe journey!

Rain Catch System: Survival Pin of the Month


My husband and I have been thinking about a rain catch system for a while. We live on a mountain and moving water around the property is a big challenge. If we could set up a rain catch system we could capture the water here at the top and then use it during the dry season for pastures or animals on the down slope during the dry season. Given we are located at the top of a huge hill, we wouldn't even need a pump we could just gravity feed it.

I came across this pin from www.familyhandyman.com and I am impressed! We have a bunch of old 50 gallon barrels that we would use instead of the trash cans so the screen system built into the lid would have to be modified. The rest of the system is easy just PVC connections. This system even has the overflow to account for periods of lots of rain. I think I would just funnel it to another holding tank given that here in California we need to capture as much as possible while it lasts because it doesn't last long. You could basically set up the exact same system again at the end of the overflow though and catch double the amount represented here. 

I had been picturing a cumbersome system that was a challenge to get the water from but this one here makes it easy to hook a hose to and use rather easily. The Family Handyman article outlines the materials and building procedure really well so if you have been thinking about a system like this as well, I recommend you go check it out.

The Changing Earth Podcast: Behind the Scenes, MP3 Skype Recorder



There are a lot of pieces that go into the production of The Changing Earth Podcast, beyond a mic and my voice. One of the best programs I have found is the MP3 Skype Recorder. This program specializes in recording your Skype conversations. It starts up automatically when you call another Skype user or receive a call from another Skype user. Skype is one of the easiest and cleanest ways to contact potential interviewees. The big problem was how do you capture the conversation in the form of an MP3 for later use. Well, the MP3 Skype Recorder takes care of all of that. As soon as you finish a conversation it notifies you with the call details a file name for you to save, replay or upload to another site. I highly recommend this program for anyone doing interviews, wanting to capture the voices of their loved ones to play back later, or parents that are curious what their kids are conversating about.

If you are interested in downloading this application for your future Skype calls visit:  https://mp3skyperecorder.com. And let the Skype recording commence!

Lost Survival Tips From 100 Years Ago: Pin of the Month


One of my main objectives when I started researching survival information was to relearn the skills that my grandparents took for granted. To learn the ways that they had gone through everyday life and lived rather happily without all of the modern "conveniences" that we now take for granted. These skills are essential to learn if we intend on surviving a day when the modern things that make our lives so easy are not available anymore.

When I stumbled upon the article over at http://www.askaprepper.com I knew I had found a diamond in the ruff. I highly suggest you click the link and head over there! Learn all of these skills that they have represented here! I have highlighted a couple that I found particularly interesting below and added some additional tips to some.

1. How to extract a splinter

www.AskAPrepper.com suggests filling a wide mouth bottle to the brim with hot water and then holding it against the skin to let the heat and the suction draw the splinter out. Now obviously this won't work on all areas of the body but out here in the foothills of California we have a lot of little picky plants. Sometimes the animals drag them into the house and then after getting stuck into your sock they end up in the bottom of your foot. They are almost impossible to get out and usually we just let time take them out, which really sucks because it's very painful until the body can do it's job and get rid of it. Now that I have this skill in my arsenal I will not be feeling that pain anymore!

2. How to Make an Emergency Water Filter

Studying survival skills like I do, I have seen a lot of filter ideas suggested. The filter that they describe in this article is simple and easy to remember. It relies upon dirt of different sizes and a suggested layer of charcoal in there as well.

5. How to Purify a Cistern (Tanning tips)

To purify a cistern www.AskAPrepper.com suggests blending in 1 Tablespoon of alum into the water within 30 minutes the particles and bacteria will bond and drop to the bottom. 1 Tablespoon of Alum will purify 16-20 gallons of water.

I found this interesting because it is another great reason to make sure you include Alum as one of your preps. Alum is what I use to tan hides and preserve them to last long into the future. To make this tanning solution blend 5lbs of ordinary salt with 10 gallons of warm water. Then add 2lbs of Alum to the solution. The water needs to be warm enough to dissolve the Alum but not hot. If you immerse your hide in this solution twice a day you will have a preserved hide. Bigger hides will take more days, for example a rabbit hide might only take two days but a deer hide is going to take six to eight days.

11. How to Secure Loose Hammers and Axeheads

Anyone who uses firewood as a heating source in the winter knows the pain of having a loose axe-head. AskAPrepper.com suggests first making sure the head is wedged in securely. Then driving in two screws into the end and for the axe-head they suggest putting a whole in the haft just below the head and further securing the head with a wire. Great idea! Can't wait to try it on my trusty hatchet.

19. How to Make a Water Fountain for Chickens

AskAPrepper.com says chickens but I don't see why this wouldn't work for other animals as well (you may need a bigger bottle though). They suggest securing a bottle with "u" hooks to a board and then placing a basin of water under the water bottle. As the animals drink from the basin the water from the bottle will fill the basin until the two water levels meet and then the water in the basin will stop anymore water from coming out of the bottle. Simple genius!

22. Keeping Plants Watered While Away

Another great idea! You take a basin of water and put it above the level of your plants. Then connect the water from the basin to the soil in the plant with a strand of wool. The water will follow the line and water your plants. You need one strand for each plant. How cool is that? I think I might set it up to happen all the time then all I have to do is make sure the basin is full.

24. How to Preserve Eggs

Having my own chickens, I have heard just about every preservation method possible: painting them with mineral oil, powdering them, pickling them, but I have never heard this. If you bury eggs in salt so absolutely no air gets to the shells they will last about a year! Then you have eggs and salt when you are in a survival situation! Great stuff!

25. Treating Sprains

Okay, last one and it's a good one. When I had surgery on my ACL I had this really cool ice pack that hooked directly to the cooler. That way the water from the cooler was constantly at work on my knee. Who knew that 100 years ago they were using a technique very similar? Once the afflicted area is wrapped you connect a piece of bandage from a cool basin of water placed higher than the patient to the patient's bandages. This way the cool water leaches down the bandage and keeps the bandages on the patient compressed and cool! Again, simple genius.

Obviously people just a few generations ago had some very slick tricks for accomplishing the same things we rely upon technology for. I find it fascinating and will keep sharing all these great tips with you! Don't forget to head over to http://www.askaprepper.com and check these skills out for yourself.
