8 Survival Myths That Kill … Or Worse

Mistaking Common Myths For Survival Sense

There are many common beliefs, survival lore, that if tried will do more harm than good. Heck, if utilized, your chances of survival are severely diminished … in some cases to zero.

Killer Myths

Now most of you realize these myths are dangerous, or least very unhelpful. But it’s always a good idea to put them out there as a reminder for folks: make sure you know before you do.

[Video] Shout Out To 9 “After the Collapse” Channels

9 “ApocaTalk” YouTube Channels

This is the third post in the series giving relevant YouTube channels some exposure.

Today, the Canadian Prepper gives a shout out to nine channels that focus on what society will look like post collapse: standards of living, technological regressions, and and adapting to a more primitive lifestyle.

Of course, these “apocatalk” (apocalypse talk) videos offer more than just doomsday, grid down dialogue. Some are very thoughtful and level-headed in their presentations.

"Doomsday Channels

“Doomsday Channels


That being said, this is not a blanket endorsement of these channels. Many of their ideas I (and Canadian Prepper) disagree with. But as CP says,

“It’s the mark of an educated mind to entertain a thought without accepting it.”

The Channels

Doomstead Diner (Roger Ebert): an established channel with a variety of guests and his critical analysis of current events, “Serving Food For Thought”.

Disaster Survival Network: post collapse insights and points of view.

Ontario Preppers Network: public speaker Che Bodri’s  channel with lots of good info, discussions and skill set examples.

Ethical Preparedness: probably the fewest number of videos dedicated to just apocalypse talk.

Hibernian Son: one of the pioneers of the “apocatalk” genre, he may challenge your  political & religious beliefs.

The Immortal: a cerebral, philosophical “ideas guy” who includes pragmatic prepping and survival topics.

The Kgoat Channel: the king of apocatalk, ethical and level-headed.

Dan Daman: a lot of gun videos with a balanced perspective.

Suburban Sentinel: critical analysis with life real life experiences.

You can search YouTube for these channels. Or simply watch the video below with the embedded “subscribe links” that pop up as Canadian Prepper gives additional information about each channel.

And, as always, Learn, Act and Share

[Video] Cooking Lunch At A Solar Panel Job Site

Lunchtime Cooking Fun

Instead of wasting an hour going into town for lunch, the engineer775 Practical Preppers crew stay on their remote solar panel install job site and cook up their lunch.

So what’s the big deal? Nothing.

Except watching the guys having fun frying up Spam and and boiling water to re-hydrate freeze-dried jerk chicken … using some great cooking gear.

It’s The Camp Gear They Use

If you want to see the Silverfire Scout Stove and the Kelly Kettle in action, and used correctly, then watch the video below. It is a fun few minutes. Learn, Act and Share.

[Video] A Day With Krik Of Black Owl Outdoors

Autumn Day In The Woods

On a beautiful autumn day, Krik of Black Owl Outdoors decided to take his iPhone 6 and head off to a parcel of Pennsylvania land that has been in his family for quite some time.

There are no super prepping or survival lessons here. Just a relaxing video of a beautiful part of our country. An iPhone video of a road/hiking trip.
