Surviving Separation from Your Loved Ones  Lessons from George

There are some emotional consequences of being separated from loved ones. If that decision has been made or made for you, we may not like it but we have to accept it. Make sure you are safe and allow yourself to be happy. Know that you will be together again in this life or the next. There are many emotions that will plague you during this time: sadness (your heart will ache), anxiety, depression, anger, sarcasm, stress, shock, deceived. Each day will be a challenge and may leave you feeling drained.
 
There are ways to rationalize these emotions. Contact someone who can help and communicate your feelings to them. Contact your family and let them know that you need a shoulder to lean on. Your family should be able to understand if you have emotional outbursts and you should be understanding if they have them as well. Be on the lookout for suicidal feelings in yourself and loved ones.

Here are some tips for emotional healing in the short term. Remember the positive memories. Tell stories of the folks as they were. This can bring your whole group together. Remember the quarks that made them who they are. Take your mind back to that time and remember that person vividly. Keep photos, objects that they liked nearby to keep you smiling.

In a long term scenario remember life will go on. If it is in a SHTF situation and you do not have confirmation that someone died, don't say that they did. They are still a missing person. If there is no resolve you have two options: carry on with no resolve, or back track and try to confirm what happened. Remember you will see them again one day. Keep hope and faith alive. If you haven't rationalized this with in your group, your group is at risk as well as your existence in nature. Unspoken feelings can be much worse than communicating about what went on.

Higher Brain Living for Survival

Episode 75: Season 2 ep. 40





The Without Land story takes a dramatic turn as secrets come out and the family has to decide to grow together or fall apart. In order to grow the family has to change their thought patterns. Here today to discuss how we can all change our thought patterns in order to evolve is Craig Polsfuss, a psychologist and international leader in two groundbreaking advancements in human potential.

Survival Depression Lessons from Craig

Let me start this blog post by stating that this episode is one you really have to listen to. Craig has a outstanding way of explaining higher brain living and how it directly correlates to long-term survival that you won't want to miss. With that said, let me attempt to explain some of the basic principles that we discussed.

Craig started out this interview by explaining why it is so important to change your brain for required optimal survival. In a survival situation your lower brain or the first brain to form takes over. It worries keeping you fed and physically healthy. It understands that sameness equals safety. It will encourage you to not take risks or think outside the box because it would cause you to change and may present a threat to the lower brain. 

The lower brain is absolutely essential but it is at odds with the higher brain functions that control cognitive ability, planning, spirituality, etc. The higher brain wants to have emotional happiness and, as in the story, maintaining a lifestyle simply because it has appeased the lower brain may leave you wanting. The higher brain functions allow you to be flexible and creative so you can think on your toes and react quickly to changing circumstances. The higher brain may put the lower brain at risk to provide spiritual freedom and expansion for an individual.   

Presently most people's brains are "asleep" and being hijacked by the lower brain demands. Mental techniques to create change help but are notorious for not producing lasting change. Mental and kinesthetic techniques combined produce better results but a still not efficient. Learning how to use the brain's own system to awaken and physiologically change itself is the purpose of Craig's mission.

What does all this have to do with a potential collapse and survival in that new world? Evolutionally, humans have always experienced a societal collapse before the brain evolves. When society is approaching a breaking point or "cognitive threshold", the individuals within that society will reach their "cognitive threshold" before society does. This means that individuals will feel pushed to a point that they can't process and create enough to solve the problems facing the society. 

Societies start out able to conquer insurmountable obstacles and environmental challenges. The beliefs of the people and the science they explore their world with walk hand and hand. Then the society grows, problems get  bigger and they begin to pass these problems from one generation to the next. Society becomes more dependent on short term solutions and unproven beliefs for a remedy to their problems.  

The society is unable to reach a "trans-rational" state where beliefs and science join to solve problems. There have been five major epochs in human development and Craig believes we are on the edge of the sixth. In order to advance to this level without experiencing a societal collapse we will need to be aware of the problems facing our society and connect our spiritual and rational brains to develop incites that will switch our realities. As a species we need to be able to move forward, destroying what didn't work in the past and preserving what did work into the future.  

Parting words of advice from Craig: "The past does not exist so you're forgiven. Life gives you a fresh moment to start over with every day but if you're recreating the past you will distract yourself from the present moment."

Leveraging Your Skills

Episode 74: Season 2 ep. 39




Erika and her team explore their new roles in the Without Land story. The individual skills of Erika's group earned them their new position. Here to discuss survival skills and how you can leverage them are Lisa and Dale Goodwin hosts of The Survivalist Prepper Podcast.

Leveraging Your Skills with Dale and Lisa

Everyone has their own personal skills that they excel at. Critical thinking or your ability to "McGyver" things is a key skill to possess. You need to learn how to fix things when you can't call the handyman.

Another great skill that far too little people possess now-a-days is gardening. Can you grow your own food? Even if your gardening skills are top notch, you will still have off years. Can you preserve the fruits of your labor? Can you cook from scratch? You need to start practicing these skills now.

There are some other skills you might consider learning before you needed them for survival. Sewing, knitting, or crocheting are skills that take practice to be done right. Shoes are something we all take for granted in our society. Are there any cobblers left out there? Do you know what a cobbler is? There are also many products for daily personal care and cleaning that can be made at home. Soap, is easy to make if you know how. Do you know how?

Once you have acquired a variety of skills you have to know how to leverage them so you are provided with an exchange for your services, whether that be food, security, housing, group membership, etc. Sometimes you will want to be the "gray man" and blend in so you can see what the group is lacking and how you can fill the gaps without giving away all your secrets. Other times you might have to be your own salesman and help others see how valuable your skills are. Everybody does something well, find your strength and dwell there. You will need to be physically prepared as well to take on a survival existence. You won't be worth much if you get injured because you were out of shape and become a drain on the group.

Chickens! A Long-Term Survival Essential

Episode 73: Season 2 ep. 38




The Without Land adventure finds Erika and her team say goodbye to their old way of life and welcome a new adventure as well as a more diverse food options. Lisa and Dale Goodwin hosts of The Survivalist Prepper Podcast join us today to discuss raising chickens and why this is a survival essential.

Chicken Lessons from Lisa


Chickens are a great animal to raise for your long-term survival needs. They don't take a lot of space and you can raise a ton of them as a community food source. They provide eggs and meat and are super easy to care for. All you need to do is make sure they have food, water and a clean environment. Don't name your birds that you intend on turning into food at some point. It will be hard to let them go when you have to. Chickens are most important because of the protein they provide. Protein helps to keep you full, even when you do not have a lot to eat. Start your day with lots of protein and you will find that you aren't so hungry during the day.

Chickens do carry potential diseases that you need to be aware of. Coccidiosis is a disease that baby chickens can carry and die from. Farm supply stores have a drink mix that contains electrolights and antibiotics to prevent this disease from killing your chicks. Chick feed that you buy at the feed store will often time have an antibiotic in it as well. This gives your chicks a healthy start. Chickens poop everywhere and can carry bacteria due to the interaction with their feces. There are also certain types of chicken flues that can attack chickens that are packed in too tight without access to an outdoor environment. Chickens are also a common carrier of salmonella which can make you horribly sick. You need can be exposed by touching live chickens or raw meat. Make sure you wash your hands after contact and cook chicken to the proper temperature every time.

Now you are ready to get your flock going! Baby chicks can be ordered from www.backyardchickens.com At this site you can research the breed you wand and choose a day to receive your chicks. For the babies you will need a brooder, water, and a feeder. You will need a heat source and a thermometer to make certain thesturdy enough to keep them safe at night and have a protected yard area.
temperature is right for them. Keeping them inside for a limited time will give you time to get a chicken house prepared. It doesn't need to be elaborate but it should be

In a long-term survival situation you are going to have to worry about people trying to commandeer or kill your chickens. You will need to provide your chickens with protection from humans as well as predators. You can camouflage your chicken house to keep it hidden from the wandering eye. Another good idea would be to keep it close to your home to ensure security. Maintaining a food supply for your chickens will be difficult and your chickens will slow egg production as the winter days shorten. Stock up on antibiotics. They will last for years, ensuring healthy chicks long into the future. Another idea may be stocking up on chicken starter food but you need to ensure it is safe from other animals that may find it tasty. You will need a good mommy chicken to raise the chicks since access to a heat lamp may be much more difficult.

Survival Sanitation: Medical Implications

Episode 72: Season 2 ep.37




The Without Land adventure finds Erika and her team heading home after defending off the marauders. The welcome home becomes a chance for new beginnings in a cleaner environment.  Lisa Goodwin author of Prepping A to Z, The Series of Prepping Books and How to Be Prepared and co-host of The Survivalist Prepper Podcast joins us today to discuss not only the importance of personal sanitation but the essentials of medical sanitation in a survival environment.

Survival Sanitation Lessons from Lisa
By: Lisa Goodwin

Cleanliness is extremely important, especially if we find ourselves in a disaster situation. We are so fortunate right now with all of our new-fangled ways of sanitation. I am willing to bet most people don’t even think about it. Things like having a sewer plant to take the waste out of our homes, and the running water we have, along with indoor plumbing. Or how about the trash man that comes every week to pick up our discarded items…aka…TRASH! And how about the specialty waste situations, like a hospital, or even burying or burning the dead? All of these things help to keep disease and bacteria out of our everyday lives.

If the grid goes down, and we find ourselves in a collapse of our country, or even a natural disaster situation it will be imperative to think about the trash around us, as well as the sick, injured or dead.

There are many diseases, and bacteria that we don’t really have to deal with on a daily basis here in the United States because of our incredible sanitation system. Some of these are:
·         Hepatitis (even though it is somewhat prevalent)
·         Typhoid
·         Cholera
·         Cryptosporidiosis (Parasites) (cause diarrhea-very infectious)
·         Ascariasis (Round worms)

If sanitation is subpar, these and other diseases can occur, which will affect the entire population. This is why it is extremely important to always practice cleanliness now, and know how to keep things clean in a grid down situation.
Simple things like:
·         Handwashing
·         Bathing
·         Keeping trash under control either by burying, burning, and composting
·         Cleaning your food before eating it
·         Knowing your food sources
·         Waste systems, either a septic system, composting toilet, or constructing an outhouse.
·         Dealing with the dead, by burying or burning
·         Keeping your food sources covered, and contained.
·         Dealing with vermin and pests

In my opinion, the best solution for a sterile medical tent will be determined by your situation. If you are in your home, sealing off a room, and making it a medical clinic, or even having a section of your garage being a clinic, or even a storage shed if you have one. You must keep it impeccably clean, including the floors, walls and all of the equipment inside of the room. You will need to have a very large supply of bleach, disinfecting wipes, and all of the medical garb such as masks, gowns, shoe protectors, gloves, eye protection etc. Draping, lighting, and sheets will be important as well. You will also need some sort of storage rack that you will be able to keep all of your sterile supplies in one place, preferably not in your “clean” room, otherwise you will contaminate everything by bringing in a sick person.

A medical tent or vehicle would be another option in the field, however it would be challenging to keep it sterile, but it could be done. You would need the tent itself along with lots of sheet plastic, and disinfectant sprays, wipes etc. It would also be a good idea to learn how to make your own disinfecting wipes, solutions and sprays. Because if you need to create a sterile room, or tent, my bet is the Wal-Mart and medical supply store is long gone. So prepare yourself to know how to make do with what you have, or create the sprays, wipes etc. you will need.

Every situation will be different, but have a plan b in your head, and probably a plan c as well, and possibly a backup plan to that as well.


Maintaining a sterile field would definitely be challenging in a disaster situation. But, it can be done by following the rules of keeping things sterile, vs. clean. For example, gathering your supplies and opening them in a sterile manner, and keeping them on a tray or table that has been covered with a sterile field. One thing that you learn very quickly is how to open items and transfer them to a sterile area, and how to put on sterile gloves, and keep them that way. Everything will be a challenge, but it can be done, with a little practice.

In a perfect world, you would have an autoclave available so you would be able to sterilize surgical instruments, even if we were in a SHTF scenario. If that is not a viable solution, you would need to determine in what instances you would need to have sterile equipment, vs having clean equipment.

Clean equipment is perfectly fine in most medical situations, unless it is in regard to surgery.

You will need sterile instruments if you are doing surgery, meaning you are delving deep within the human body, and dealing with internal organs, and then yes, you will need to have sterile surgical equipment. But that being said, one of the biggest risks of surgery happens afterward, even today, and that is the risk of infection. So keeping surgical wounds clean, and the bacteria level low will help to prevent infection, but bacteria are vile little critters who are very focused on one thing…concurring. This is why there is such a high prevalence of antibiotics that no longer work to kill bacteria, and antibiotic resistant bacteria. The little suckers are smart!

So getting back to how to keep surgical steel sterile in a grid down scenario, you need to know how to disinfect the instruments, and then kill everything on them, this can be accomplished several different ways.

First, clean the instruments in a disinfecting solution. You want to make sure the items are clean, and have no blood or guts on them. Allow them to soak in the disinfecting solution (bleach water) for at least 10 minutes, but no longer than 20 minutes. You could also choose to soak the instruments in alcohol, they should be soaked for 15 minutes in a solutions of 8 parts alcohol, 2 parts water.

Remove the instruments from whichever solutions, and dry them off, and get ready for the next step…..

You will never believe it, but you can use your pressure canner to sterilizer medical steel instruments! You will need a “floor” in the bottom, to place the instruments on, and put about 2” of water in the bottom of the canner, you want to have enough water to steam for about 30 minutes. The steam is what sterilizes the instruments. Put the instruments in the shelf, and close up your canner. Get the pressure up to 20lbs, or close to that, and keep it there for 30 minutes. When it is completed, you will have sterile instruments. Then you will need to package the items, so they will remain sterile until they are needed for use.

Again, this is reserved for instruments that will be used for surgical procedures, you do not have to sterilize all of your medical equipment. Most medical things that happen only require “clean” items. More importantly, proper hand washing is one of the most important aspects to practicing medicine, and taking care of a sick family member or patient.

Chapstick as a Survival Tool


Lisa Goodwin

"My path to making my own things started when I was little. My parents made it a part of my life, so I grew up thinking it was “normal” to do things like make your own personal care items, clothes, or cook in a wood stove, and milk cows. But sadly, as I grew up I fell out of that way of thinking, and that way of life.
"But after I started my own family, and moved to a rural community, I quickly realized that being prepared for whatever country living could throw at you was much easier than relying on someone else. Even though I had not been living this lifestyle for about 20 years, the things I did learn came back to me. I found myself researching how to make my own butter and bread, and how many chemicals are in the things I would routinely buy. I learned the good and not so good ways to make lotion and hair shampoo as well as work my garden.
"And the more I started doing for myself, I really understood what it meant to be happy. There is a lot to be said for a hard day’s work, and taking pride in what you have done. I work hard at trying to find ways to be more self-reliant, and I am grateful that my husband feels the same way. Together we find new ways to save money, store food, learn about security and just live a better life with less. 
"You don’t have to make millions of dollars to be happy, but you do have to be happy with what you have. I have learned so much from others, and through my own trial and errors. Now that doesn’t mean it’s all easy, and everything works the first time. But it has taught me to never give up and keep on trying, because success may only be one tiny mistake away.
"Knowing what I know now, when I first got started, I wished I would have had the vast amount of resources that are available now. With the ever changing environment of the world, and even the country we live in today, I feel it is so important to reach as many people as possible, and share what I have learned because maybe it will help someone else, and make a difference in their life.

"So I challenge you, as I have challenged myself. Make it a priority to do more for yourself and become more self-reliant. This isn’t something that you will be able to complete overnight, in a week, or even a month. Being prepared and self-reliant is a lifestyle that is best looked at as a marathon, and not a sprint. The more time you take and invest into it, the more you will get out of it. And the best part of all of this is you will really be setting yourself free, because you will have accepted responsibility for your future. You will not be relying on someone else, and the more prepared you are, the less you will worry. The less you worry, the happier you will be.

Here is to your happiness and path to being more self-reliant!"
