III. Let’s Mix It Up

Let’s Mix It Up is brought to you by 4Patriots.com. The US may be known for its excess, but the pandemic put a spotlight on how fragile our food chain can be when put to the test. Keith and I have found that 4 patriots is a great way to supplement your food stores with inexpensive and tasty food that can last up to 25 years. 4Patriots set up a special page for our listeners at 4Patriots.com/GUNEXPERIMENT10 so they can get weekly discounts and deals, but act quickly because the deals will change each week.

On this episode of Let’s Mix It Up we discuss how to build the perfect modern minuteman bag. (Go Bag?) (Go bag vs Get Home vs Bug out vs. EDC)

IV. Outro

We want to thank Kevin for joining us and discussing survival skills, a topic that we admittedly don’t get to dedicate enough time to, but we feel is so important. It’s really great to see how passionate he is about his craft and sharing it with others. We really look forward to implementing some of the ideas we discussed on Minuteman bags.
