TGoG Podcast 037 – Stockpiling Essentials

This episode is all about stockpiling essentials. Things like food, water, cooking methods and the like that are good to have at hand during an emergency.

A while ago, I wrote a post titled Nine Meals from Anarchy, which talks about what might happen in an emergency. This podcast episode takes it one step further where I talk about essential things that you may need in the event of an emergency if the supermarket shelves become bare.

I also touch on a series of posts that I wrote a couple of years ago called the Be Prepared Challenge, collaborating with Bec from Eat At Dixiebelle’s.

Anyway, I hope that you gain an insight into why it is a great idea to have a small stockpile of sorts, in your own home.

Don’t forget that you can leave a comment about the podcast via this blog, or a leave me a voicemail question or comment via the gadget on the sidebar, which I can play during the next episode.

Happy Stockpiling!

    That was cool. My first podcast. You sound nothing like i imagined. Very soothing tones, like a voice over guy on a relaxation radio channel. I was paying attention to what you said also. Great tips.

    As usual, nice podcast, Gavin. A growing number of folks in the USA practice some form of stockpiling or “preparedness”. Often starting with 72 hour kits and going up to 1 or more years. We can all the excess from our garden as well as cheap produce we can get. Beans, both dried and canned, make up a good chunk of our protein (most of mine – I’m veg), but we’ve added tuna, and I will probably be adding canned meat for my omni family. When I preserve foods, I try to do 1/3 in freezer, 1/3 canned, and 1/3 dried. It’s an art as well as a science. Water is where we’re lacking. Thanks, again, and keep up the good news.

      Thanks Mary. Don’t some in the US use the term Preppers? It is not that well known here, however a lot of country people do stockpile as a matter of course.

      Thanks for listening. Gav x
