What Is The Tin Hat Ranch?
Everyone needs to learn how to prepare for life’s emergencies, be they a simple power outage, a massive storm, a break-in, civil unrest, nuclear war, or (insert end of the world scenario here). How you chose to be in tune with that information is your own prerogative. There are many other channels out there that have the same focus, but I feel the Tin Hat Ranch is different.   How do you take such a macabre subject and make it fun to watch?  It has always been the aim of the Tin Hat Ranch to teach and entertain at the same time.  I value your time, and with each video produced the information is distilled down to the elements that you need, delivered succinctly, and for good measure a bit of sugar is sprinkled on top.  Of all the subjects on YouTube, this is one of the few that can make a difference in your life.  While we hope that some of the information we provide will never be used, lots of it is useful day to day.  Should the unthinkable happen, a bit of information you learned at the Tin Hat Ranch could make all the difference.

Why is the Tin Hat Ranch on Patreon?
So, why is the Tin Hat Ranch here?  Transforming imagination into reality is one part time, one part effort, one part soul, and one part money.  I can provide the time, effort, and soul, but I need your help with the last one.    Content from the Tin Hat Ranch has always been, and always will be, free.  The very limited opportunities for income afforded to YouTube channels can put a cap on their creativity.  Creators like myself often reinvest all of the proceeds (and then some) back into their channels.  When it comes time to dream big and produce a series like the "DIY Off Grid Solar Series", often times the dreams must remain, dreams.  Your help can change that.  Your donations can help turn ideas into videos.  We all share some of the same life goals, what if, in the future, you want to install solar panels or a wind generator, learn HAM radio, or build a complete self-sustaining log cabin homestead?  If you like to learn from the Tin Hat Ranch, some of these topics are there, some are still dreams.  There is no fancy way of getting around saying it, producing these episodes costs money.

What will the Tin Hat Ranch do with the donations?
Simply put, I'll take what is in my head, and put it on video.  Your donations will do two things, 1.) make them happen, and 2.) make them happen faster.  This can take many forms, some of them are in the goals section, but producing a channel like the Tin Hat Ranch has costs, ranging from sheer production costs on the topics at hand, to equipment like cameras and lights.  Your donation will go towards more information delivered in a live call-in podcast, more epic How-To's, and interesting content from abroad, along with all of things that are associated with the production of the content.

What do you get for your donation?
For your donation you will get exactly what is stated above.  The content will continue and hopefully the topics will expand and reach a wider audience.  With recent changes at many of the platforms used to distribute and fund social media, we are re-evaluating additional methods to reward you for your support.  Stay tuned. 

Thank You!

$2 or more per month

I've always made content free and will always keep it that way.  Your donation of $2 will go a long ways towards expanding what the Ranch has to offer!  $2 will also give you access to the Tin Hat Ranch Patreon Feed, you never know what will happen here!  If you choose to donate more, I will leave that up to you.



Producers
$10 or more per month

Your donation will make you an "executive producer".  With recent changes at YouTube we have temporarily suspended the credit role at the end of the videos.  We are evaluating what to do next.

Why do you want a podcast from the Tin Hat Ranch?  Well, there are some very good reasons.  Each episode of the Tin Hat Ranch is a careful craft of words and images that provide you the viewer with the necessary information on the subject discussed.  Do I talk about everything that has to do with the subject?  Simply put, no.  In the interest of attention spans and entertainment rules, some of the information gets left on the cutting room floor.  The podcast is your chance to pick through the sweepings before things get thrown away. Not that the information lacks worth, but there is currently no way to interact with you the viewer in a meaningful manner.  A podcast, complete with a live call in feature, is a conduit to share further information and answer your questions.  Want to know more about solar power?  Surviving a nuclear war?  Ham radio?  Or maybe you want more of my thoughts on a piece of gear reviewed?

Starting a high quality podcast requires expensive equipment and on going hosting costs.  Reaching this rewards level will provide you with two high-quality podcasts a month, where we delve into topics ranging from dissecting information in videos, interviews with people you want to hear from, and even talking to the manufacturer's of your favorite prepping and survival gear.
