In this episode, we sit down with James of Survival Punk. He’s going to share with us the benefits of life in a tiny house, the downsides, and the pitfalls.

Tiny houses are all the rage these days. They even have their own reality TV shows.

For some, Tiny houses make a lot of sense: They can force you to declutter your life, push you out into the world and get outdoors, save money, and a host of other benefits. And some tiny houses have the added benefit of being mobile -- an attractor for many preppers and modern nomads.

But there can be downsides to tiny houses too. If you're not an experienced DYI'r, you'll need to find a contractor or builder. If you're a pack rat, these aren't for you. Some cities and municipalities are making new laws to keep out tiny houses and new tax laws specific to these smaller dwellings.

However, the Survival Punk find more benefits than detractors. And we discuss...

~ Topics Discussed:

  • * Why pick a tiny house to live in if you are a prepper?
  • * Dating as a single tiny house owner?
  • * How do you store food in a tiny house?
  • * Can they help you get out of or avoid debt?
  • * How realistic is bugging out in one of these?
  • * How do you move a tiny house?
  • * What are the construction methods (and hacks)?
  • * How do you pick appliances?
  • * Does solar work well for tiny house owners?
  • * Building codes and laws impacting the tiny house movement.

In this episode, we sit down with Tim Maynard author of Southbound: A Story of Survival. His book explores what it might be like for a truck driving survivalist if an EMP were to go off while far from home and his wife.

As a former truck driver himself, Tim brings a unique perspective to the survival discussion. The "over the road" life presents many challenges for a prepper; Storage space is extremely limited, you're often hundreds to thousands of miles from home, and when disaster strikes you could find yourself in an unfamiliar area.

  • How does the book start?
  • What is Southbound about?
  • How did he write a book while on the road?How do truckers
  • How does Tim get into a writer's "flow state"?
  • How do truckers prepp with limited space?
  • How did he calculate how long it would take the main character to walk home?
  • What's the best $100 Tim ever spent on survival?
  • What's his go-to long gun?
