E107: Sailing for Survivalists Part II

In this episode, hosts Aaron and Jason do a follow-up interview with Jesse. And this time we dive even deeper into sailing for preppers.

But, before we do–and to bring you back up to speed, Sailing is becoming a big topic around where.


Because Sailing may be one of the perfect methods of bugging out. But it’s not just about bugging out in an SHTF situation. It may also be an exceptional way to bug out from the standard run of the mill life many of us are leading–as long as you’re not prone to sea sickness, of course.

Special note: We’ve gotten off schedule with the episodes lately. Thanks for hanging in there. Over the last few weeks, I’ve had to travel, gotten the flu, dealt with some studio issues, and been buried under a ton of work. But we’re back on course now for the remainder of the season.

We now resume our regularly scheduled programing. (Which may include naked survivalists soon–long story.)

Anyway, enough about that. Listen to the show.

    Loved the podcast about sailing. Great job Aaron. The information was invaluable. It applies to power boats and land based RVs also. A lot of the same kind of systems. For example I am planning on hauling my fishing boat up to Prince Ruppert in British Columbia, and then motoring and fishing the inside passage to Alaska. I need to research the laws about entering and leaving canada and the USA and dealing with customs and harbor masters. Dealing with fishing regs., all the mechanical systems on the boat, weather, navigation, etc.. Thanks again, I have listened to most of your podcasts, they have been great.

    I have listened to a few of the ITRH podcasts, this one interested me because I have a cousin who wants to sail the remainder of his life as a world cruiser. The tips you mentioned here were extremely insiteful. I am passing the links to him to learn from.
    For me personally I want to bicycle tour around the globe, starting state side first. Listening to this podcast convinced me not to sail, I am just not into all the fixing and maintaining. But I share and understand the wanderlust of traveling and there are a lot of similarities to Bicycle touring. I wanted to mention something about eating seaweed, part of the discussion went there and I recently discovered the real nutritional value of seaweed. A great route to go is a little company in Main called “Main Coast Sea Vegetables” found http://www.seaveg.com. It is a great little company right here in the states that pays careful attention to sustainability. Seaweed has a weird connotation to a lot of folks but it is actually really cool. No – I am not related to the company at all by the way. Any way thank you for running a awesome podcast and thanks to Jesse and his wife for sharing their sailing experiences.
