Listener Comments
(in no particular order)

Last Saturday I heard your broadcast. It was very informative. We are in New York city and are giving serious thought to moving out. We have been in a rent-controlled partment for about 50 years (we were born there) Any advice for someone who has never rented any other apartment? You menioned the 50 most evil corporations. I guess they're all bad. Our Greek landlord would love to get rid of us. He's really harassing us so we're looking to get out.

Hi Kurt, I love your show. I love the straight talk you give, I've downloaded the shows off your website and now have a gcn membership to get the rest of your archives, and was wondering if you have the titles of the shows from November to January easily available? No worries if not, don't go to any trouble. I live in Canada and months from now when I have the money I'm going to be ordering Mountain House from you and survival tabs.

In case of the nwo crackdown on their slaves, I'm planning to bury in the north, boreal forrest closed canopy section (which is alot) mountain house and survival equipment so that I have a plan B always waiting for me due to not having the funds for an underground bunker in a remote location. What do you think of that? Or you could answer it on a future radio show hee hee :D

Thanks Kurt, You're the Man!!

Kurt: I'm listener number 31. Do I get a T-shirt?
I found your show a few weeks ago, and I've been listening to the podcasts. Jesus Christ, I thought I was a wacko! I have a small pantry with a lot (?) of stored food, but I don't have 15 tons lying around! Wish I did, though. I was thinking of getting a shipping container and burying it my yard-great for storage, hiding and tornados!
Love your show, man. It makes me think.
Thank you, Bob.

Kurt:

Darn good 1st radio show! I listened to it when I was doing reserve time, TDY down in the Carribbean last week.I hope this venue is fruitful to you and wish you and your wife every success.

BTW: The Oil of Oregano made short work of a sore throat! Geeze, that stuff tastes..... "different" but it worked.

Best , Chuck

Thanks for the link to download and listen. I missed the show... was busy and away from home at the time. People need to know that stocking up in relatively good times feels stupid. Tell people to do at anyway.

On Wednesday, I went to Cash & Carry to stock up on rice and beans. When I walked down the isle and looked at ALL THAT FOOD that was just sitting there (and there were only two other customers in the store at the time), I looked at the prices (everything was relatively cheap), my brain said to me "There isn't a crisis, you have plenty of food, you are crazy stocking up when all this is right here".

It was not easy, but I ignored my feelings and my brain and did the right thing.... buying what I came for anyway. FYI: 25 LBS Rice, 25 LBS Black Beans, 20 LBS Pinto Beans... misc seasonings.

Since that experience, I realize why people aren't preparing. We can not comprehend what it was like during The Depression. I remember my Grandparents telling me about it, I have seen documentaries and read about it but have never been there. It is difficult to picture that it ever happened before and even more troubling that it may/will happen again. Shopping in a store like Costco or Smart & Final gives the impression that the good times will never go away. Look at all that food!

If I had a microphone, I would ask people to prepare even it feels stupid (because it does feel stupid). Look at nature... all those squirrels gathering nuts for the winter. The squirrels that don't gather will perish. The ones that will be alive in the spring were acting like fools gathering food (when there was so much just lying around everywhere).

One topic I would suggest (some more time on) is rice. It is cheap, it takes very little energy/water/time to prepare. It stores well (if you package it yourself). You briefly mentioned your packaging method. And which type of rice is best? Most people don't know how to cook it properly.

Most of all, people need to know that stocking up in relatively good times feels stupid. Tell people to do at anyway.

Thanks... hopefully I will be able to listen live this Saturday.
Paul

Just going by my own family reaction (to my preparations), the people with 'ears to hear and eyes to see' are few and far between. The more I speak, the more deaf and blind they become. Even if I shut up and just set an example, I am nuts (according to them). What is coming is hard. I get that but I don't want it to be even harder for myself or for anyone (except The Elites of course)...

God's Speed

Kurt,
I Just heard a rebroadcast of you last GCN show on Fire. I would love to have some of those links on Firestarting and heating that you mentioned. I always carry at least 3 different methods to make fire on my person at all times, but I'm always on the lookout to learn new survival information.

Keep the good work up, and your powder dry!

Hi Kurt,

I live in the UK and have just found your radio show, listened to a couple of the mp3s, excellent advice.

I know just what you are saying, I have a friend, she goes to the supermarket every day! I know other people that don't want too much because they have no where to store it, in a three bedroom house! Only one bedroom used for sleeping!

In the UK an IT manager could get 40k now they're lucky to get 20k. Where I live 16k for IT. I started in electronics, that went east, I then moved into programming computers, that is now going east. So I'm looking to move into another area. I do have my own business, so I have a bit of flexibilty.

Those folks just don't get the bio fuels gold stuff do they? I do a lot of writing and am currenly putting a new book together, relates to a lack of money. If you'd like I could send a draft copy in feb/march time, feedback/forword? Another item you could sell???

What is the spare a dime music, the lyrics are very apt?

Cheers, David

Hello Kurt and Mrs. Kurt,

Want to share something I came up with on what to do with a can of dehydrated or freeze dried food after opening the can. I found that we do not use all of the contents and have a lot left in the can. When I put the plastic lid and and put in cupboard the contents still draw dampness and it clumps up. So now I use Press'nSeal Glad wrap. As you put the wrap on carefully press and stretch it to the can and as you go burp some of the air out------now the wrap is concave, then put the plastic lid on. The content of the can stays in good shape much longer. You can re-use the plastic wrap a couple of times then replace it with new. This has worked for me on the #10 cans as well as the 2.5.

Thank you for the radio show, we really enjoy it and look forward each week for the next one.

Sharon

You have a great website btw and my wife and I have really enjoyed your radio program since we discovered it. Tons of useful information. I look forward to hearing from you when you have a chance to respond.

Thanks again

Kurt, just wanted to drop you a line that I really like your show. I have downloaded all the mp3's and archive them. Just a quick note on the last radio show. As an owner of most of what you spoke of I can tell you that for the general person out there the AK-47/MAK-90 is much easier to take apart than the AR-15.

Nope. It takes some ability and dexterity to tear down an AK. An AR was made so any idiot can take it down easily. Personally, my main (within 100 yards) battle weapon is an AK 'cause I can disassemble/reassemble in the dark.

You also happened to say at the very end of the broadcast that the .357 was 3/4 of an inch longer than the .38 spcl. Actually it's only about 1/4 inch difference.

I thought I had said 1/4" ' sorry.

I reload for ALL my toys ( save $$$ bigtime ). You might bring up reloading in part 2 for those who might want to get started.

Reloading is best left for every-day living. In emergency situations, you won't have the time. If one wants to reload ammo, better do a couple thousand rounds (or more) for each weapon you have BEFORE the SHTF!

Just wanted to let you know that I really believe I have gotten a lot of good info from your show. I just finished listening to Firearms for survival: PT 1 Mp3 and was happy to know I have bought just what you suggest with the exception of a bolt action 30-06. I guess an AK can subsitute for that if necessary. I have about 1,200 rounds for the 10-22 so I guess I will try to pick up some more. Am going to listen to the one about the depression tomorrow.

Thanks for your work and good info!

Hello Mr. Wilson,

I enjoy your weekly show and am a new listener. You are doing a great service and are to be commended.

I caught the show on the weekend and thanks for answering my questions. Also, thank you so much for your advice regarding mixes. You saved me a couple hundred dollars by telling me not to stock up on pancake mix. It was something we had started but now will cease.

I've checked out your website pretty extensively, and listened to all of the shows multiple times. I'll still go there again, because the more I hear something, the more I retain it. It's hard for most people to wrap their minds around buying food for upcoming years and not doing their shopping for the week or month in advance. It would be easy to only lay in food that you can buy at your local grocer, and think that you have all that you need.

As a struggling graduate student, soon to be struggling pastor, I can relate to that mindset, theoretically anyway. However, the reality is exactly as you say, and I suppose the hardest part is realizing that food is insurance, not merely fuel. It's quite the paradigm shift, but it is an important shift to make.

Thanks again. In the upcoming troubles that will strain us all, know that you have helped quite a few people to stay alive by your efforts.

Take care, George

Just wanted to let you know, more than 18 r listening. thx 4 ur efforts.

Sir you have allot of common sense I remember your program about storing food now I have a warchest full of caned goods and dry goods and allot of water thank you

I just found your radio show. I also just placed a small order from your site to try. I think you are doing a great service for the people in this country. Unfortunately I believe the majority is still in denial and don't believe anything can happen. Keep up the good work and I look forward to buying more from your company in the future. Thanks Again.

Sincerely , Dave

Sir, I like your show very good information. Thanks to on demand at gcn, I get to listen to the broadcast more than once. The show on water storage saved me after sub -zero temps here in montana damaged the pipes on my mobile home. I was prepared to deal with the problem. I have been storing can food and dry goods for about a year by picking up extra food every
time I go shopping. As a disabled veteran I have limited funds each month in which to get ready, like that you sell mountain house products and will be buying some from you in the near future.

Enjoyed your show, it is amazing how people believe the marketing, and so called reasearch, from the men in the white coats, all paid for by those "altruistic" corporations!

Sir, Found your program thru a link last Tue. Had heard of your program thru a friend, but had never got a web address. I'm on Eastern Time Zone, so I had to wait an extra hour for the start of the program. LOVED YOUR SHOW and the FREE TALK LIVE program that followed. I work 6 days a week, so being able to catch your show was due to the fact that we had a recent heavy snow fall that closed us down for 2 days.

Hi Kurt - love the show. Been listening to you for a few months now and think I might be one of your original 17 listeners.I've been learning and preparing since Katrina and have found your advice extremely helpful. I've read a lot of books and learned a lot from trial and error, but hearing your advice and stories, has been most helpful. It seems we've made the same mistakes, like trying to vacume pack flour...

I have been listening to you, Steve Shenk and Alex Jones for awhile now. How in the hell can I get my wife to listen about whats going on worldwide and here in the US? I have tried to approach her about the subject on shortages, upcoming economic collapse, etc. This stuff that you and Steve talk about food, precious metals, getting prepared before shumer hits that fan.

She flatly refuses to listen because she believes that God wont allow such things to happen. I have bought a couple of years of storable food, a Little silver and other odds and ends, which I wont want to mention because the web has ears and eyes. My wife gets real upset when I spend our resources for the just in case scenario. Yes, I do get called paranoid and crazy by close family members.

I don't want my family to be in Govt bread lines, FEMA camps, etc. I do know that the US has all preps for going under martial law. I read the legislation, PDD 51 and other sources of info on the subject.

Sincerely, Leonard

Kurt I am new to you show and your site I want to thank you for what you do. I have always been survival minded and try to be repared so when I found your show I was very excited. I have since listened to every show in the last week I cant get enough. I TRULY WISH YOU YOU WERE ON A COUPLE HOURS EVERY DAY.

Any way I have copied all your shows to CD and given them to my family as I have been harping on them "to get ready for whats coming". As I have been seeing it coming. I joined the Army as a Cavalry Scout (Recon) and spent six years in mostly to learn the combat skills then deployed to Bosnia so I have seen first hand what is coming.

Unfortunately we are buredened with many bills that consume most of our income. We are doing fine right now but it makes it tough to put much back. Thank you once again and may god be with you. When all else fails lock and load, breath relax aim and squeeze. Untill next time keep your eyes open your head down and your weapon clean. SCOUTSOUT

'"Surviving Martial Law" is the most disgusting writings I have ever seen.

I had one of my customers and listeners ask my opinion about his E book that he sells for $20 on his site. I read it and was totally disgusted and insulted that ANY American would even THINK of putting this crap in another American's hands!'

Thanks for the info. Here I was thinking that this was a book that I should eventually buy too! You saved me the bother. This is infuriating. Basically he's saying roll over on your back and play dead or worse!

Thanks again for the tip.

Your latest transmission of your show was what I have been looking for the past 5 years, people who lived during the crash. I wanted to know what happened and what did they endure? Your show answered it all. Thank you all for being what you are and for being there to help US!

I'm part of a group that is working together to plan, prepare and share info. I'll be handing out CD's of your show and have shared a lot of info with them from your show and will continue to. In fact we're going to say "Listen to episode # and we'll discuss this next week. Bring questions and any info you may have obtained if you tried to find the answers yourselves." So if you count CD listeners, you can add about 20-25 to your listener count!

I just got my daily multivitamins yesterday. WOW! They don't even smell bad! Thank you for making such great products available to us at these prices.

Subject: Re: GCN show

As a GCN subscriber, I listen to and enjoy your show. I've been a survivalist for 30 years, since that terminology was a stigma.

But the one thing about your show I can't stomach is the partisanship. No, I don't expect you to balance out the "Adolf Clinton" remarks with some "Adolf Cheney" and "Antichrist Bush" ones. But not everyone who listens to your show is a Right-Wing nut job who just doesn't learn, even after the past 7 years, who the real threat is.

Then you just aren't listening. I am so far NOT partisan I'm often called an anarchist. I refer
to our "President" as King George the Bush the 2nd and "that megalomaniac in the white house".
If you listen to GCN then you listen to Alex Jones. If you don't have "Endgame" yet,
give me your address and I'll send you a free copy.

Between the doormats on the Left and the spiders on the Right, I guess you're finally making me reconsider sticking around in this once-great nation. You guys really deserve what's coming, and after the past 7 years, there's not much more to destroy.

And who would be "you guys"?

I live in the UK and have just found your radio show, listened to a couple of the mp3s, excellent advice.

I'm from london in the uk. I very much enjoy your show and i found the 'B.O.B. bag' and 'which foods to store' episodes very helpful. I listen every week and i download all the shows i find most useful. I noticed that sometimes you seem a bit down on yourself about the size of your audience, so i wanted to encourage you that you are making a difference.

Thanks for all your work. Hope this finds you well,

from a UK kid

I enjoy your weekly show and am a new listener. You are doing a great service and are to be commended.

I have a question about the MRE's you have listed on your site. Do you know if the MRE's contain soy? I'm thinking about ordering a box for emergency supplementation, but I unfortunately have a allergic reaction to soy protein and soy flour.

Thanks for your time.

Regards, Daniel

I really like your show. I didn't have ANY food storage before I started listening to you, but I was thinking about it. Your show galvanized me into action, and I used all of my Christmas money to buy big superpails of beans, rice and other staples that I use anyway. I also bought canned goods, spices, some Mountain House items from you, etc. etc.

I have also been buying clothing as I have seen rock-bottom prices. I also bought a Foodsaver with plenty of rolls of bags and I've been using it whenever I can. Basically all I've been buying is food and household supplies with any money I can scrape up and it's definitely paying off.

Also, per your info, I have developed my own bug-out bag system that includes among many things vacuum-packed road foods for me and my cat, and it's all right by the door. If I can catch Angel (LOL), me and the feline can be out of the house in two minutes and on our way, fully equipped. I didn't even know that would be a relief to me, but it sure was, and I smile every time I see my preparedness pack by the door, waiting to be used when needed. (My next project on that front is another bug-out bag IN the car so that if I can't get back to my house I have supplies.)

I am probably not the sort of person most people would imagine would be "into" your show. I am a single, female, city-dwelling liberal (with serious libertarian leanings) and I have never been very outdoorsy or a "survivalist" type of person. However, I think that proves that your show is for ANYONE, no matter what their political persuasion or their hobbies. Eating is not a political ideology or a hobby, it's a necessity, and people who are not prepared are going to be sorry, no matter who they vote for in November.

Tyrel

Hey, Kurt. I found your show on GCN's website, and I have to compliment you on your efforts. I appreciate your common sense approach to preparing, and how you also mix in the more pricey, yet essential foods and other products.

What would you say to me, and others, who want to prepare by heading to a discount grocery and not solely rely on Mountain House foods, which are more expensive (but worth it, in my opinion)? I do want to have a good supply of MH foods, but I also want to have a stocked food supply at a decent price as well. I would also ask a similar question about nutritional supplements, as they are equally as important.

Keep your powder dry, George

Sir you have allot of common sense I remember your program about storing food now I have a warchest full of caned goods and dry goods and allot of water thank you

Sir, I like your show very good information. Thanks to on demand at gcn, I get to listen to the broadcast more than once.

Don't kid yourself Kurt ... you're the best program on GNC so don't think "nobody's listening".

It's time for those like myself to find guys like you and do whatever we can to make up for lost time, hoping ... just hoping that they hold off a little longer (or that things don't otherwise blow up before we can make preparation that won't be a waste of time). This isn't one of those times you can back up and punt if you just play the game stupid. You offer practical advice and sound theory about 'surviving' ... thanks . I believe that anyone who has any wits left is beginning to realize that it's past time to stop and listen to your message ... and get ready.

You may feel like you're preaching to the choir, that everybody out there has been listening for months and doesn't need to hear it. Yeah right! We've got a lot of conditioning and public pressure to shake. It takes time to make serious changes and these times we are living in (for me at least) require some changes that you just can't snap your fingers and make happen. Besides, we don't necessarily wake up all at once ... so don't let up now! The clock is ticking.

Thanks again, for all that you do, we appreciate you more than you'll ever know,
Dan

I have been listening to your show for the past several months and I like what you are doing. Good stuff! For a long time, I've been getting extra stuff when we shop and packing it away in plastic 'Tote' boxes and everybody thought I was a bit extreme... Then, my family heard your show a few times and it was like validation or something cause they don't think Dad so strange anymore.

We have lived in middle Tennessee for the past several years and the shipping for a decent order of storable food was a bit costly. Well, problem solved. I moved to Coeur d'Alene. In fact, we just got here yesterday. Today we drove around a bit and many Ron Paul posters which to me, is sort of an intelligence indicator...

Anyway, so much for expensive shipping! Now I can just back-up the truck.

Koodos to ya Kurt!
Steve

I find your show very interesting. I can not tell you how I found it, but a short time ago I did.

As a youngster I grew up in Wyoming, half the population was LDS and they always had 2 years of food on hand all the time. My family did that. I did that until my wife threw it out. She is afraid of these things. So when it hits the fan (I believe it will soon), she will be looking to me for support and help.

I am packed up and can flee to the wilderness. I could live there. I need to hide my supplies to keep them hidden until needed. I now live in Upstate New York. I feel confident I could escape and survive.

Thanks for your show. I listen on line when I can.

Have just listened to your fire extinguisher show. Excellent advice. I'm the only person I know, and the only house I've ever been in who has them and a fire blanket in the kitchen just for good measure.

Hey kurt, thanks alot for this weekends show. Great info and stuff i don't hear anywhere else!

Thank you for your service and God Bless you and your family.

Oaktree

Thank you Kurt and additionally thank you for your show. My wife, friends and I appreciate the time and effort you put into it. We have heeded your advice in many areas and are better for it as well as our families.

Warm Regards, Bill

Thank you very much for your radio show...often entertaining, always informative.

I heard you mention the housing bailout bill about two weeks ago, and the fact that any homeowners (who qualify) who accepted the tax credit are subject to eminent domain, financial activity tracking and forfeiture of profits made by sale of their home. I found one article on WorldNetDaily, I believe, that outlined some of this fine print, but did not connect these conditions to homebuyers accepting the credit.

Thanks, and keep up the good work!
Matt

We listen to your program on the shortwave radio and are appreciative of your information and boldness in telling truth. If you can please mail this article to:

As a long time friend of kgez i am glad that John has picked you up for broadcasting here in the Kalispell area.
Thanks, Paul

I love the show, I've been listening for the past 4 months and you really have opened my eyes. I sure hope you get a syndicated show, I would listen to you over Alex Jones any day...once a week isn't enough.

Since listening to your show, I have decided to get out of government work, and go private sector, no reason to be an "eater of their substance" Thanks for the great information, I'll be getting some Mountain House food from you soon, I have been meaning to flesh out our food stores that we already have.

Nathaniel

Excellent show as always. Please send me the links you were talking about, including the message to America from Africa. Thanks so much!

Janice

Great show you have and am listening up in Canada. We will get what ever you guys get 6 months later. They are trying to privatize the water here in the city. I am watching the whole mess unfold.
Nicholas Barry, MSW, ICADC

I am a customer and a listener of your broadcast, Keep up the good work.

Thanx in advance, Cagey

I just began listening to your show a few weeks ago. I am impressed and have learned a lot. I am a 60 year old African American single female who has lived in the New Mexico Gila and the small town of Silver City for about 2 years (1998-2000). I learned A LOT and enjoyed every moment of it. Now that I am back in the city I still find myself storing and rotating food and various other things for survival. I don't like city living anymore but I'm stuck at the moment. I tell people all the time that it is better to be prepared and it doesn't happen than not and it does. But of course they (not all) think I'm nuts - well, I like nuts (smile).

Anyway, I've started listening to your archives (still impressed) I have never heard the present national situation 'so well put'.

I would like to thank you and truly appreciate your efforts and am grateful for your life experience that has lead you in this direction.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

I am a Black Man who can't stand and didnt vote for Obama or Gramps and had listened to your "infomercial" peddling bigotry and fear for entertainment purposes. Your last piece of bigoted bullshit was the last straw. I would say fuck you but you are already fucked, trapped in a world of paranoia and rhetoric. I have more respect for that low life crossing the border than a once poor, but now spoiled dilusional asswipe cowaring in his bunker. Have fun flake, and enjoy your new president.

Dear Armchair Survivalist,
Only today did I discover your programme on WTWW. After just a few hours I have been totally sold and this is fast becoming my favourite station.
So far, I have only been able to listen via internet, which is certainly sufficient but not ideal in my opinion. I would like to pick you up off the air on shortwave.
I know that WTWW is testing its broadcasts and trying to reach us here in Europe as well. So far I have not been able to hear a thing, alas.

I really appreciate that your programme offers real solutions and food for thought for independence and self-sufficiency. Many other programmes, as good as they are and as much as I enjoy them, really simply point out a lot of problems in modern society without offering solutions for how people can take positive action. Your programme and its links to interesting self-reliance solutions are very fascinating. Not to mention very topical for me. We in Europe are in far worse shape than you are in America so you can understand that I am very eager to learn whatever I can from your programme and webpage

Kind regards, Paul

i listen on 9980, didn't know about the 9480 untill you mentioned it. i find 9980 to have less fading and clearer audio. i first heard you about 2 years ago on sw on the 'other' network. i listen to the forst hour mostly, when i have time. have been known to download missed shows to listen to later. i enjoy your honest no bull approach to the facts on the ground, and the info in your 2nd hour is enlightening and delivered in a simple easy to understand format in how it is useful to me type of format.

keep up the good fight! from western mt

Mr. Wilson, Just wanted write and congratulate you on your new endeavor with Oracle Broadcasting. I really enjoy listening to you. Because of my work schedule I'm not able to listen like I would like, but now that you are on pod cast I am able to download your broadcast to my iPod and listen to you when its a better time for me and not only in my car but anywhere I take my iPod. Thank you very much for the opportunity you afforded my to listen to you . Thanks Ron

P.S. Also wanted to let you know I will be ordering your products in the near future.

Hey Kurt,
Glad to hear you're back on the air! When will Oracle set you up with podcasting? I imagine that's the way a lot of us listen to your program.
I sent GCN an e-mail chastising them for dropping your show and urging them to reconsider. Otherwise, I would drop my monthly subscription. The bastards preemptively cancelled my GCN subscription!!! Wow! I thought GCN was better than that!
Jim

Dear GCN management:

There are two sides to every story, and I'm sure you have your reasons for canceling the Armchair Survivalist. But my life just changed for the worse when I didn't see his show on your website, and learned that his show had been dropped. I therefore urge you to work with Kurt to get his show back on the best network in the world -- GCN.

At 36 I am a lifelong fan of talk radio -- Bill Wattenburg, Art Bell, Alex Jones -- I've loved them all. But never in my life have I heard a raw talent quite like Kurt Wilson. I am convinced that he is the last authentic voice of the American frontier. Clipped, hard-bitten and frugal, he tells it like it is. Listening to Kurt one never gets the impression that he gives a damn about ratings, fame, wealth -- or management. This is talk radio at its pinnacle.

Which, I fear, is why he fell out of grace with GCN staff. Kurt is a strong personality -- but that is precisely what endears him to fans like me. I am not asking you to sacrifice the GCN brand for Kurt alone, if he is indeed being unreasonable. (For the record, I am not privy to what is going on behind the scenes... this is just one fan pouring his heart out.)

I implore you to work with him, to at least meet him half-way. Trust me: Kurt is too big a talent to let go over a simple contract dispute. I must warn you that you risk a boycott from GCN listeners like me if it turns out Kurt was thrown under the bus because of some petty dispute. And believe me when I say that I will get to the bottom of this.

As a committed fan of the Armchair Survivalist -- and of GCN -- please let me know if I can be of any possible service in bringing Kurt back to the best radio network on earth.

Sincerely, Ryan

I am a neighbor in Greenacres, WA, just over the border. I listen every week to the show through the GCN archives. You give lots of good info and humor to go along with it. I am sure you are waking up many thinking people, and even a few moronoids by being blunt and truthful. I appreciate the fact you don't mince words, and have the experiences to back up what you say.

I just placed my first order. If there are any excess shipping charges through Paypal, and it looks like there will be, please use them to "Feed The Kitty".

Take Care, Frank

Hi Kurt,

My name is Erin Dakins and I listen to you every Sunday and very much like your show. You pretty much saved me when you talked about how to prep and what to buy if you could not afford to buy Mountain House or MRE's etc - you made me feel like what I was doing was okay. I want to thank you for being "out there."

Thank you so much! Erin Dakins
