An Armchair Prepper is what some of us refer to as an ‘expert.’ Personally, in the prepping or disaster mitigation field there are no true experts.
Armchair Preppers are people who hang out at online prep boards then vomit out what they’ve read to others. Then there are the prep ‘scammers.’ These people fall into the same category as the armchair preppers.
What that means is when someone is just starting out with prepping, all they have to do is google prepping and millions of hits will come up.
Before you or anyone you know who is interested in prepping hits sites that want to charge you for information that is normally free or try to sell you some line of products that you probably don’t need, take the time to put out feelers.
The reason I posted all this information is that there are far too many people out there that are looking to make a quick buck by offering products or services to the prepper be they new or experienced.

Doctor Prepper interviews Jim Kennard, Master Gardener  and President of the Food for Everyone Foundation, a Mittleider non-profit organization continuing the work of Doctor Jacob Mittleider, the renowned developer of raised-bed gardening. Jim Kennard was the oldest boy at home during his youth and his parents held him responsible for the cow, the other “farm” animals, as well as the family garden.
Both will be at a number of Mittleider training sessions in San Antonio and New Braunfels on the weekend of Nov. Each fall, my husband and I head to property in eastern Oklahoma for a mental health break. I’m always looking for wild edibles to forage, so on this trip I decided to hunt for persimmons.
IA  went out into a wooded area, wearing long pants, boots, and my hair pulled up into a ponytail.
As the wooded area opened up to Lake Robert Kerr, I found a whole grove of persimmon trees! The yellow persimmons are turning ripe and can be harvested, too, but the orange ones that are dead ripe need to be eaten within a few days. An antioxidant which destroys free radicals, found in high concentrations in they eye, which leads us to believe it is crucial to good vision.

An electrolyte and mineral that triggers your heart to beat, , your muscles to move, kidneys to filter blood, nerves to work, and can reduce blood pressure. Even though I dressed for my wild woods adventure, I did end up with chiggers and ticks from my self guided tour of the woods. Apparently these tiny, tiny ticks swarm in a ball on tall grass or weeds & explode on you when you make contact with them. For all my chigger and tick bites, I used my Lavender, Frankinsense, and Melaleuca oils to relieve the pain and itch. A special thanks my friends, Lisa Hazelwood and Sherri Long-Hamilton for their advice on identifying and treating this infestation.

We are striving to be the #1 source of information on prepper and surivival related information on the internet. The Survival Channel strives to bring you the best best in prepper related content including podcasts, articles, and videos. Wise Company, is dedicated to providing outdoor enthusiasts with ready-made freeze dried and dehydrated meals that are delicious, nutritious, and lightweight. There is also confusion that somehow outdoor survival training and preparedness are one in the same. Most outdoor survival courses are designed to show and teach the students how to survive if lost in the woods.
They’re pretty much useless but sadly, they prey on the newbie prepper and focus on ways to separate them from their money. For the most part, the flashy sites are pretty much geared up to take their money and return to them some mediocre product or advice.
Mittleider taught growers the principals of introducing clean, healthy organic residues into the ground immediately and all at once for the maximum benefit to soil and plants, and then applied small amounts of God-given natural mineral nutrients at regular intervals to assure that the plants would have complete and balanced nutrition.
When he married, with a wife and young family of 5 girls to feed, Jim almost always grew a garden––for economic as well as health reasons.
Mittleider’s book More Food From Your Garden became very popular, and Jim and his family used it to create an extremely productive container or Grow-Box garden on a sunny 20 X 30 foot part of their yard, and practically lived out of the garden for 6 months. He has been active in converting his own backyard garden to a Mittleider installation with all the whistles and bells!
It’s incredibly beautiful out there, and the eastern side of the state where we are is green, lush, and hilly, not dry and dusty. I tried one that was almost ripe, and it started out tasting sweet, but that gave way to a very astringent taste that made my mouth pucker. The bites have scabbed up and have stopped itching.A  I just wanted to warn people that foraging is not always fun, it does have its risks.

Our outdoor meals are packaged in durable, extra strength Mylar foil pouches that ensure freshness for up to seven years.
That’s kind of a no brainer right there being as the title of most of these classes addresses something related to the outdoors.
They’ve read all they know and haven’t ever put all this new found knowledge to a real world, practical application. What’s worse is that some of these sites will advertise about some kind of magical list for all BOBs, Survival Kits, Emergency Kits, Get Home Bags, Get out Dodge bags, or whatever they want to label them.
Don’t be in a rush to sign up for a class that is run by someone who’s only skill is fast talking and pushing you towards buying their whole disaster preparedness package. Having been in the Disaster Prevention now Mitigation field for a long time and having more than a passing interest in preparedness and outdoor survival, you shouldn’t have to pay for information about how some so-called ‘expert’ created the ultimate list for what you need in your BOB.
Jacob was so busy giving seminars that he moved from California to Salt Lake City UT in 1978, and because Jim and his family lived only a mile away, they became acquainted. These trees grow in the south and southwest, and can grow as high as 25 feet.A  I had heard from the locals that persimmon trees were common, and could be harvested for a delectable treat.

There were so many burs, insects, rough terrain, and snakes that I probably would have come back on a stretcher. At home I made a hot bath with a half cup of my homemade Apple Cider Vinegar, and my previously mentioned essential oils. Each outdoor meal is prepared in minutes by just adding water, making them perfect for everyday use, backpacking, camping, hunting, fishing, boating, RV traveling, and 72 hour emergency kits.
However, learning how to stare down a charging moose is not the same as having a woodstove or a BOB. A good example is that both prepping and outdoor survival mention a sheath knife of some kind and possibly a multi-tool.
I’ve been in that field for over 10 years and I’m constantly being bombarded with information about some new course, class, or certification. That same site will then espouse how the person who pays something like $99.99 will get free advice for life or some other bullshit.
Find out through your local Chamber of Commerce if there are any preparedness expositions in your area. Mittleider turned the organization and all his materials over to Jim Kennard, and Jim created the non-profit organization so he could help 3rd world countries develop better farms and gardens.
Jim build and maintained a garden  according to Jacob’s standards, so they became better friends.
The green ones aren’t ripe, but can be picked and ripen at home for a month in the fridge.
Oh, when you find them, be sure to harvest them early because the wildlife love to eat them, too. Take the time to attend one or more and get a feel for what’s going on before you start opening your wallet and forking over the cash.
Jacob would occasionally visit the garden and work with Jim, and even invited Jim to his home to work in his garden and learn from him.
These trees originally came from China and the seeds were introduced here by Commodore Perry in 1856. You can also place them in a plastic bag with a banana to speed along the ripening process.
Sure, there are the basics that most people teach and then there are the advanced subjects but in reality, there are always new things to learn or new ways of doing the old methods that might be better. Don’t pay for some wise ass telling you what he or she thinks you need in your supply chest, pantry, BOB, BOV or at your BOL. After Jim retired from other full-time pursuits, determined to devote himself to carrying on Dr. Attendance is usually free or a donation of canned food that ends up going to the local food banks.
