So, many of you know that we went “off grid”

and disconnected from satellite TV and went over the air antenna with a Roku. We’re a standard def (old school) TV.

About the only thing I wish I had after disconnect was youtube– like you can get on the newer smart or HD tvs. Well, my prayers were answered, and last month I found a list of private channels for Roku, one of which is called videobuzz which creates a portal into youtube.

I found this youtube channel called LDSPrepper. Oh my heck. He’s got like 250 videos uploaded running the gamut from explaining simple to complex gardening, he did this whole live review/show and tell on water filters (6 different kinds), has a series with the Texas Seed Bank owner, did a whole “basic solar energy” video (I actually understand how to use and wire solar panels now…!!)

It has been AMAZING. All of it (so far) has been tilted toward real life, real food, real world applications self reliance stuff vs. dry pack canning kind of stuff (warning: he ends every video with the line “if ye are prepared, ye shall not fear” (it’s an LDS scripture reference.) Not preachy, but when you have watched 25 videos back to back like I’ve done it kind of wears on you..BTW that’s about as Mormon as he gets for those worried by his channel name.
