About This Class


do you ever think about what would happen when the lights go off?
when the grid goes down? when a massive world event effects us all?
what would you do, where would you go, how would you stay alive?

i've always thought about it to be honest, i think i'm compelled to think about it when i see so many absurd things happening for good and then for bad in the world that displace people in radical ways, the way the resources of the world are depleted and the things we do incorrectly to maintain their future.

so it often brings me back to thinking about mine and ultimately, how the hell i wanna end up in a situation that is world changing. .. here are some of the ideas, suggestions and things you might want to take a look at. .. just saying. . :)


in this course. ..

  • apps and kit to help you close the gap between catastrophe and survival
  • apps for your phone modern day prepared - on grid and off!
  • ready to go bags, battery power and kit to heat and light the way
  • five things you can read/watch today to get yourself prepared
  • our top five ideas for living a life after the lights go out

i hope your enjoying the daily courses as part of my skillshare advent calendar for 2016.

1. 1.0 - introduction to the survival quick course: another course today, Absent kit to help you close the gap between catastrophic events and survival. This is not meant to be a concrete guide to staying alive in the middle off such an event, maybe a zombie apocalypse. They are some good pointers. Some solid point is, I believe, into getting educated, learning new stuff on educating future generation, very mind that I am trying to teach you how to survive in 20 minutes. I don't have all the answers, and I'm still learning massively myself. But I always think it's a good idea to know where you're going to APS for your phone. Modern day prepared on grid and off because obviously, if we have a problem with the power grid and the power goes off, the cellular goes off. Your phone is going to completely uses. There will be no cellular access, but you still will be able to use applications on your phone as long as we don't get hit by a solar flare. E M P. All right, so ready to go bags power battery power on kit to heat and light the way. Five things you can read or watch today to get yourself a little bit more prepared, a little bit more preparedness and finally, our top five ideas for living life. After the lights go out, let's get into this interest thing course. 2. 1.1 - some online and offline applications: all right. It's a really good way of keeping fit daily, I would say, especially now, Start now and think about when the zombies actually arrived is zombies. Run game dot com. This has been out for a number of years but is a fantastic app for IOS and Android. It's like a normal running app. Apart from as you're running, you start to hear the sound of zombies coming nearer and nearer and nearer. If you want to get fit in 2017 download this game and I guarantee within three months you'll be running a five K Boog Out Bag checklist at. Make sure you have everything that you need to be able to throw in a car and quickly bug out when you need to. Also be able to check the dates on things you're buying box water, for instance. That's hoping it'll actually three or four years want to make sure that you have got stuff that you throw out and swap out. With that I got back. I suggest getting a bag like this any way in the back, your car. If you break down on the motorway on a mountainside, having stuff inside your bag light flares and matches and things like that. Absolutely valuable advice for anybody who's traveling around in the car motion. X GPS. I believe this is the best GPS tracking piece of software out there. I think is one of the best applications out. There's got a bunch of great features, especially one way you contract back to a location that you started from based on cell towers and things like that really, really good piece. So I have been around for a while now. Seen many it orations of this software as they improve it over the years. Wild edibles app. Don't starve to death. Understand what's around you. If you do get into a situation where the power is off, you've run out of food. You're not water. Being able to find food in your local natural environment is going to be crucial identifying what to eat and what not to eat. This app is great because it downloads all of the information that you need onto the APP. You don't have to have a Internet connection for it. FEMA, especially if you're based in the U. S, have a dedicated app worth and look to see what your country has. Maybe they have. Ah, similar app to female gives you some suggested ideas. This is very much a online app for reporting things as well, though I presume they're gonna do push notifications for certain areas if there's a terrorist problem or if there's some kind of other issue global issue or a nationwide or state issue that they need to push out to go download the FEMA app if you're based in the U . S. And have a look to see if your country has a similar dedicated up to something like that. 3. 1.2 - hardware i would purchase today: right. That's equipment I absolutely love. Bio lights kit. They've got a great set off innovative kit for charging your devices. You could see this one here. It's just a thermal induction box on the side. You put little twigs into the section on the left. Inside you burn those twigs creates power in kind of this coil. In term, that thermal energy is then turned into electricity, which you can charge your mobile phone your devices on. Great for heating, obviously and eating. And you can even connect up to that power unit with some lights that they've brought out. You can have the string lights it can put above you so great for charging, heating and lighting that covers three bases right there. Another thing you want to think about. Battery wise gold zero have probably some of the best batteries I've seen for additional nomads, people who are traveling with some great batteries and solar panel charging options. They're not cheap, but they are good, and that's the most important thing when you're in a survival situation that you have reliable kits that you can rely on and be able to charge of ice solar as well if the grid has gone out, I would suggest you go onto Amazon today, either co dot UK or the one relative to your country and by the E V. A Q eight emergency go bag. It's a 72 hours survival kit. I think you should always have one of these in the car, anyway, if you're traveling a lot alone, if you're commuting long distances to your job every day, I would suggest you have some kind of go back some emergency bag in the car to help you out of these things. Not just a triangle and a jack. I would have the kit to be able to survive outside for at least 72 hours. Go 10 a dot com. This is an interesting one for me because I really loved the idea of where they're trying to go with this. This relays messages using like a mesh networks. You don't actually need tohave solar access. It works over VHF, and you could do this between you and your loved ones. And so it uses radio signals instead off wireless or cellular. I think it works pretty good range if you're definitely off grid or if you're stuck somewhere and you both got these go tellers. You've been charged him in the car. You got it stored away in your sort of glove box. These are a great way of messaging between you. If one of you needs to go off and find a fuel or find food or just needs to go and get some help, check out your local Army and Navy stores. I'm not sure what the called in your country, but in the UK there called Army Navy Stores for a line off crossbows and archery. Definitely a skill I would suggest to teach you, your friends, your Children, the next generation, how to operate a crossbow or be l've to be a reasonably good shot at archery. 4. 1.3 - books and content to watch: books. This book itself, from Neil Strauss was one of the ones that really opened my eyes to thinking about survival . Survivalist IQ intentions on Just thinking Bigger than myself really is a book called Emergency by Neil Stress. What happens if the inevitable in some ways happy? Have we run out of power? We start having brownout start having power issues some massive catastrophic event. What would we do in those situations? And it's an interesting angle that this best selling author took with this book, and it just got me thinking about my areas in my life as well. So go check that out. Reasonably priced now, I think you pick this up for about 10 bucks. Watch survival Lily on YouTube. Youtube dot com four slash user four slash alone Wolverine 1984. This lady, this girl She's amazing. She lives out in the woods. I don't actually does it full time, but the woman is making bows. Andi arrows on moisturizer and food on just living that off grid prepper lifestyle. Educating people through a YouTube videos. If you want to get into some survival prepper kind of star videos, there is lots of different channels out there on the Web. But I really like survival lilies. I suggest you check it out on, especially if you got gills. Young girls in the family, I think they could probably identify with survival Lily in terms off her being after tutor your daughter. So searching for prepper prepared nurse bug out bags. You know, you could download to a hard drive some of this information that you find on being a prepper preparedness just in case something like barristers happen, you can at least bring that up on a hard drive and read through and educate yourself in that down time because you won't have your Internet to turn Teoh TV to watch. You will be completely off grid. So it's a good idea to maybe get that knowledge in now or have access to it when the power goes off. Obviously, you're gonna run your laptop on a solar panel right Every day. Carry dot com will give you an idea off everyday kit you could be carrying already today on your commute in your bag on the train on the plane, stuff that you can use if a situation happens in your traveling in your commute on your day to day life, you've got various bits of equipment on you that you can use to at least get you back to a place of safety. Find a copy of How to Stay Alive in the Woods by Bradford on Gear. Analog Evergreen Content This book has been around since the fifties. It is kind of one of the Bibles off learning about different ways off staying alive, and I would suggest you dig it out. You'll probably find it incredibly cheaply. Look around. Some bookstores and similar books like this exist that have been around for 40 50 years, that I've just got evergreen content that will never change about how you can stay alive as a human being in the times of a catastrophic event. 5. 1.4 - the ultimate, if you have the cash: So let's talk about kits. Got a cool quarter $1,000,000 lying around. If I did, I would buy one of these two day. This is the earth Roamer, XV dash lt Here on the left. Inside it is a beasts of a off grid vehicle. Not only can you still tons of water and it got these army specifications, tires and security features. This thing inside is absolutely gorgeous is like a home on wheels. But you can throw this thing anywhere and you could live off grid four months at a time with this thing. It is not cheap, but it is one of the best vehicles out there. Got a rainy day cryptography, currency, slush fund anywhere. Maybe we can all club together and buy ourselves some land. Over in Nova Scotia, in Halifax, Private Island Online calm. I do actually know of a guy who chip together with 10 other people on built a year in Halifax, and he's now the mayor of his land and he's living off grid their commutes around the world on the cruise ships, finds out the cheapest cruise ship prices and as club together to have his own place in the world that he owns living stateside. You could go to missile bases dot com. They could hook you up with an underground style base, maybe one of the Minuteman missile silos that they had in the early eighties in the Cold War period. A lot of those have been taken over now by data recovery companies and people who want to just disappear off the grid. If you're really interested in living underground, check out missile bases dot com. Or you could build a floating, solar powered island of 150,000 Recycle bottle. Yes, it does exist in the world. And yes, somebody is living there. If you want to invest your time, maybe you've got a base already. Got a place already way you can bug out to. You've already prepared a lot of your living conditions. Have you sort out the food part yet? Go over the freight farms. Com and you can set yourself up with a shipping container. Harvest everything that you need to create a harvest all self contained in a shipping container. 6. 1.5 - the five step project: five step project. Go to your project in the bar below. Put an awesome project title in the project Workspace. Be creative. Include pictures and the steps that you took. Pick a sweet cover image. You can get one for free over a nomad dot pictures, click, save and you're done. 7. 1.6 - the roundup: All right, then, the round up. This is just a basic, basic, basic nudge course to get you to maybe consider your options. This is not a complete guide on a little bit tongue in cheek because I don't know that much . I probably about 10% off things to do with prepper and survivalist. It kind of intent. But I am desperate to learn, mainly because a compulsion to optimize. I love to optimize things. I'm getting more better than being prepared for when the power goes off. Consider learning more about survivalist IQ techniques, especially if you've got Children. Getting training for you and your Children together I think, is a nice bonding exercise. Anyway, my intent was not to scare you with this course, So I apologize if it makes you feel overwhelmed and makes you question things about life. But I wanted to do this so that you can mobilize to consider what we do every day in a resource hungry world. Sincerely hope you enjoy the course, and I will see you in the next one. If you have any feedback only questions, any advice, any programs that you've been through with you and your kids Or if you know how to shoot a bow very cleanly to get in touch. I will speak to you soon. Take care. Bye. 8. 1.7 - share, review and go premium!: while I have you enjoyed the course, Please share and review the course. It really does. Help me out.
