E93: Prepping for Apartment Dwellers

Hosts Aaron, Jonathan, and Jason discuss preparing in an apartment and a new home.

It’s a long overdue highly requested episode. And it sets the record for our longest episode ever because it’s such a large topic.

Survival in an apartment is fraught with difficulties, limitations, and needed reality checks. But it’s not impossible. And there are some measures that can be taken to ensure you’re able to survive.

Moving into a new home offers a fresh pallet for a prepper to work with. But it brings up all kinds of new things to consider. Because you are starting all over.

    Hello I’m new to the survival scene and a new listener to the show. Love the show keep up the great work. I like the simpli safe alarm system idea. I’m in the military and live on post and the housing does not have an alarm system and this would be great, since there is a chance to be stationed elsewhere. My wife and I will be looking into this alarm system. Thanks.

      Thanks for the interesting thoughts on the show we put out for free, Greg.

      Seems you’re a “serious survivalist”. So you may find one of the following podcasts more to your liking. And we’ll keep the format the way our longtime subscribers enjoy:

      And, just to update those in the know, the Tactical Weimaraner’s gastric issues have subsided since the Great Fruit size tumor was removed from his abdomen. Thanks to all that have emailed in great words of support for his health.
