Inspirational Documentary

I just watched a truly inspirational documentary entitled;
Fat Sick and Nearly Dead, found ithttp://www.filmsforaction.org/watch/fat_sick_and_nearly_dead_2010/

inspirational documentary

Juice machine and travel around helping people, then he met another with the same condition, that fellow learned and did the same diet reboot. Second fellow lost 200+ pounds by juicing and exercise, watch the transformation and inspirational documentary. It is not cheezy or in your face, laid back documentation of their journeys and the people they help along the way.
My great big smile for the day!

Here are the links to the websites;


An Australian fellow who was overweight and had a weird and rare condition thought long and hard about his life and health, the Documentary is his journey. This documentary takes place in Australia and the United States where he travels around chatting with people and trying to help them in their food addictions. Now this sounds in your face but this fellow is easy to like and easy to chat with as well as his genuine sincerity to help others. Half way through his journey across the U.S. he meets another fellow like he used to be, overweight and with the same rare illness.

Your going to smile, you’re going to be sad, you’re going to laugh as well as shed a tear or two, or your just not human at all. This documentary about this part of his life draws you in and you think your there with him it is very intimate and soulful.

Joe the originator of the film is inspirational and Phil the ex-truck driver is amazingly inspirational, your heart melts with his weight loss journey. Watch this little hour-long film and dare to change your life!

Since I have decided to become mostly Vegetarian  this was very opportune for my knowledge base of veggie foods. Now since I have been off sick for the last 4 months with this weird Lung Infection, I need to lose even more weight, I was doing great up to D-day sickness time. The film just makes sense  so much sense that I will be starting this diet as well, they call it a ReBoot. Well reboot me baby here I come. North American Doctors can not find out what is wrong with me, they can not fix me and they can not even help very much, so I am helping MYSELF!

More to follow on my Journey and I believe that updating my blog with my journey will help me more than it help anyone who reads it, but just maybe, someone else out there will find the info useful and the Documentary will change their life!


I dedicate this post to the Documentary and helping one person change their life, mine. Everyone else and everything else is a bonus and good luck on your journey as well!

My belief before was that Permaculture and Aquaculture could change the course of the world for the better, this documentary only re-enforces my thoughts and beliefs.

Cheers for now

What I did for Prepping this week

Prepping should include what you do not know as well!
Let me explain a bit here;
The skills you sort of remember and the ones that when you are honest about with yourself you need to learn or re-learn in order to survive! No excuses, work on this gain knowledge to help in any future possible.

Mine are as follows;
Skinning, gutting, prepping game kills and fish prepping
Preparing the hides for use in what every fashion that may be needed for them
Stone carving, need way more info
Flint knapping and primitive skills knapping for general uses
Re-learning the annual declination to tune compasses to find true and magnetic North
Re-learning basic carving skills that I have lost to go to the place where I want to be in my Carving ability.

Prepping this past week, ups and downs..
+ Went on a 8 km hike into the woods to the property that I will be sharing and living on with some other people this will be a prepping/survivalist/permaculture set up. Awesome place, remote secluded though will be very difficult with lots of work to make it a permaculture set up to produce more than we need though. Good Challenge.
+ Saw and followed cougar tracks for over 60’ and took photos of them, all great, showing the tail drag as well, perfect. – my cameras flash drive failed … lost everything on it, including other prepping work that I had photographed L
+ Worked on learning how expedient lamps could be made, different uses and models as well as what works and what does not work in terms of wicks and the lack of availability of finding wicks in our big box department store days.
+ Working on expedient wicks, from paper towel and natural fibre cord that words great to shoe laces and other material that do not work at all
+ Downloaded some info on Rocket Stoves for heating and cooking, will explore that more, also trying to figure out how to make one for portable winter camping.
+ Learning more on permaculture, how it was used in the past and how to use and adapt it more into my future as well.
+ P-38 & 51 can openers – p51 is the Canadian Mil or US Mil Cold weather can openers
Showed some people around here as I still have 2 left over from my CDN Mil days, they work much better and faster
+ Found two Canadian suppliers of Knives, all kinds of knives, so now will have a cheaper means of getting some better knives and swords again for prepping. (all mine, over 75+ knives and 15+ swords gotten rid of by one of my exes along with all my prepping stuff, camping and military gear with the odd small exception)
+ Will be ordering a KUKRI MACHETE w/ SHEATH (not the machete as I have two others now)
+ Will be ordering a Cold Steel Ninja Sword and sheath, or the two handed sword machete. Why, they are very handy, can be used as a machete in a pinch or alternate, are light, and very capable in my hands. Last and fist line of defence.
+ Bought a Buck folding locking blade on sale at Canadian Tire for only $9.95 on sale from the normal $28 price….sweet !
+ Two weeks ago bought a handy Mtech Xtreme USA 440C steel, folding locking blade as well it fits my hand perfectly and is designed for wood working as well with its, handy thumb rest on the top of the blade.
= That finishes off the locking, utility knives that I needed, now I have about 8 in total so some for survival/camping some for general work, all good.
+ Bought another stainless steel pot for my bug out bag, cooking, cleaning, misc useage
+ Bought some quick release straps for my back pack and day pack to make them easier and more comfortable to carry (sloped shoulders need these)
