    First, having a GHB, is something all of our adult children have, and their spouses have as well. Those go “with” on all vehicle trips. Ours have felon repellent and felon redundancy capabilities just in case as well. (You figure it out for yourself) Water and shelter are the most critical items to have the ability to deploy as needed, even if, it’s only for shade, or to help keep the rain and snow off of you, your vehicle etc. Im a big believer in razor sharp folding knives and other cutting/chopping hand tools, that can also be “dual purposed”, if/when things “get close...”. As for assisting the genetically stupid, defined by me as being too selfish to think “they” might need some self sufficiency, I’m not inclined to offer any assistance. The innocents and older folks, will always be welcomed into our fold. The others are whiney sniveling drones, that are of no earthly use.

    figure out what size PVC your household uses including lines from your meter and have a selection of PVC fittings some 1/4 turn valves and cans of PVC glue and a few joints of pipe. Stainless steel hose clamps all different sizes. Barbed wire nails box of 16D and 30D common nails or box nails wire staples. Rolls of bailing wire metal tie wire sheets of plywood enough for covering windows and doors. tarps enough to cover your roof Black and clear 6mil thick or better plastic ( visqueen ) large rolls 1/8th 2,000 lb strength and 1/4 inch cable 7,000 pounds strength sometimes called aircraft cable. 5 gallon bucket of roofing tar 6 pack of bathroom caulk and a 6 pack of silicone caulk w/ a caulking gun extension cords 12 ga wire size and 3 way adapters. rope braided is best 1x 4s -- 2x4s and some 4x4s look for scrap old sign post and some landscaping timbers. old school hand saw, cat claw, crow bars a pair so you can walk the dog, hammers framing, shop and carpenter, string level 3 foot level, plumb bob, screw driers a few measuring tapes, speed square, set of wood chisels, set wood gimlets, bow saw machete limb loppers /cutters draw knife. Shovels square point spade or pointed shovel trenching shovel or called a sharpshooter and ax real double bit not a half ax, grubbing hoe, pitch fork 4 prong, sledge hammer, steel wedges, post hole diggers, rakes heavy cast and a metal fan type leaf rake. garden hoe. digging bar or pinch bar, chain falls minimum 1 ton, tow chains and binders. yo yo or sling blade.

    I stumbled across this you tube channel today, named Prepsteaders. Very informative videos in her channel, if you want to to learn long term food preparation. Worth having a look.

    This past weekend I challenged my self in a one bucket of water sponge bath. Just to see if it was doable for me. The bucket size is 1.75 gallons or 7.89 litres of water. My first attempt was Saturday, which I managed to clean my self. It’s amazing how much water is used in a bath tub, on average about 50 gallons is wasted.

    Faith Goldy is already on the hit list. She was running for mayor of Toronto in 2018. Paid for ads in radio & TV , but the TV & radio stations denied her by rejecting her paid ads. This is not democracy. The yellow vest movement that going on in Europe, with be in the streets of North America, you can bet on it. Its coming sooner than one might think.

    I Did not know about her but seems like she might get on a hit list just for one of her videos on Youtube. This is what we need to be aware of here, just how politically correct and mindless does a governing body goes be for it marginalizes it's own citizens and make preference over nonsense than common sense. Canada's present system is the model for the deranged left in America, it's too bad that Canadian citizens have not decided that Troudou is worse than the French president Macron IMHO.

    P210SIG yes sir that is a hurdle to have that much clean water figure starvation rations it would take 50 gallons a month. what most forget is cleaning so have enough paper plates and plastic wear and all that can be used as heating fuel afterward some can also be used to bait traps as it is the scent that attracts animals so a piece of paper plate with the scent of food will draw them in. Water barrels 55 and 6o gallon work great but need to be dumped and refilled at least once a year better twice 1/4 cup bleach a gallon of water and close it and roll the barrel around to clean the inside do not dump just stand up and fill reseal and it is water you need to treat it one it's de-potted. Nice thing about barrels they can be used as tables with a plywood table top and placed all over and even buried and used to catch rain as long as the air is not compromised. heavy ash from volcanoes makes the water alkali too much and it's toxic. Distilled water IS NOT SAFE TO DRINK as it has little mineral content as it passes through the body it strips the minerals from you. I forget the scientific term but chelation or damn I forget the word but minerals are drawn to water or if the water has an abundance of minerals the body absorbs them but there has to be an exchange of oxidized minerals for fresh to refresh the blood. Life is in the blood as it carries all the vital nutrients to every place in the body if your drinking distilled water you need to take an all purpose vitamin. Dehydration is not so much the lack of water but the laqck of electrolytes vitamins and proper minerals. Some minerals are toxic and the body's receptors are fooled by their atomic structure and they attach but cannot proceed with cellular regeneration because it cannot be cycled into the proteins and the cell dies, enough of this and you die. Your body has to keep ahead of atrophy ( slow death ) by withering away / wasting . I wish I could just dump my mental contents as it is so very long winded to explain all the factors that can and do happen, remember we are preparing for an unknown event Nuclear, Biological, Chemical or NBC BUT it's not that simple what if all of the above are in play like Mount St. Helen's and add in damage to chemical plants and a nuclear plant in a weather event like a low pressure system HOLY CRAP would that be a nightmare. Any event can be minimized or exacerbated by weather 100+ degrees no power and you have to seal your home up below freezing and dry as a bone and all your water is outside or you have none and the air is toxic being in it and your clothing is compromised. what is worse some events leave or have no trace a million ways to die is no joke even a library of knowledge and that one thing you miss and it's over and then there is Murphy, that bast@rd never sleeps. All of your perfect children and grandchildren will be Murphy's little helpers or the grim Reapers even the best children are fool hearty emotional impulsive I was a child once and regretted it children refute teachings by nature they are condescending and revel in ignorance. Today we allow children way to much freedom and once any situation hinders their social life or internet connection your going to have a tragic situation brewing, so having stores and chores to keep them busy your going to have to chain the up. Ann Frank is dead that type of instinct is rare and that is why she is held up as a amazing child she suffered but endured all a grown person could not have horribly she died before the camps were liberated and that is the hard facts of life people die all the time from lack of preparation the normalcy bias and fail to get while the gettings good or flat run out of goods time and faith -- yes faith as faith is the belief in things not seen and the future is just that an unknown and if your faith withers you wither - and die with or without water Food drums and IBC totes cannot be reused so look for them get the blue barrels they withstand sunlight over white barrels look for acid barrels from brick laying contractors watch it but they are filled with Hydrochloric acid and you want the barrels wit the least amount left look up diluting acid de-acidify and wash rinse well and you can store water in them they are black and most are 30 gallon barrels .... well I ain't got all day bar-b-q is calling me with some blackberry cobbler -eat drink and be merry cause tomorrow sh*t might be Forked up

    In my group, 3 months/90 days of supplies, we are good to go. Our goal is 3 years worth of supplies , which is a tall order to achieve. Biggest issue is having enough clean water stored, it’s a challenge IMHO !

    Yeppers Rudolph the red nose reindeer boy is that a classic because it used stop motion animation to create a full movie so it was not a cartoon. Of course in that day we all loved Burl Ives his unique voice was hypnotic as soon as you heard certain voices like his or like Jimmy Durante and a few others you immediately caught your attention and got ready for some eclectic entertainment that was sure to be fun or thoughtful and make your day, both could send your emotions running over get you laughing hysterically maybe slap your forehead and think how did they come up with that ! and how funny happy silly or interesting it was. Today when I see certain entertainers it's like I get rigid knowing that they are going to go into a diatribe of social political or personal ranting that leaves you wanting to turn off the computer radio or video device and go play with the dog. Currently my dog is happy and well adjusted and because I am not a vegetarian he knows that holidays seem to make huge ham and venison bones appear with all kinds of scraps WHOO DOGGIE he likes that. and he get the added bonus of trying to attack new people and sniffing new butts other than the mail person and the normal friends that come over. It's great to hear all my old favorite Christmas music I don't think I have but one song after the 1980's most of your would choke on your drink but I love it Here are some odd but pretty funny. Watch Watch out for that punch at the work Christmas Parties Watch late Watch later

I'm about to kick back and watch White Christmas with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye one of my favorite movies that puts me in the Christmas mood I also like A Christmas Carol with Alistair Sim, As far as a comedy I really liked Christmas Story mostly because I always liked Darren McGavin

    My ultimate outdoors sidearm!

    Well, I finally got one - I've been searching for one of these for pretty much my entire adult life (though my wife would argue I have yet to grow up.) This is a .22 LR 4" barreled S&W Model 18 from the late '60s. I've had a 6" barreled S&W K-22 since I was 21, but the 6" barrel has always been better suited to target use over field use. I've been trying lots of different guns for field sidearms - Ruger MKI / MKII, Browning Buck Mark, the aforementioned K-22 - but I always just came back to the conclusion that I really just wanted a 4" .22 Smith & Wesson revolver. Now I've got one - and I don't think I'll ever step foot in the woods again without it on my side.

    The Police friend or foe

    The police only.serve & protect them selves & not the general public . This has been going on for many many years now. My trust in the police has been lost for over 10 years now. The newly recruited constables don’t know jack shit about by-laws, this is what I see & experienced in my neck of the woods. We are certainly living in the times of revelations. Judgement day is coming, the second coming of Jesus Christ before you know it, will be soon here. Repent of your sins, for we have all sinned. In Gods eyes.

    Yesterday I did a practice run on fire starting in a downpore of rain in 3 different methods, the easyist was using char cloth & flint, then using a ferro rod was second, then the hardest was using a bow drill method. Char cloth & ferro rod methods are ideal for me now, so much that I refuse to light I fire with a match or a lighter for quite some time now. ive made a 20 gallon propane tank wood stove a few years back & have cooked meals with it many occasions. It’s fun practice as usual. Have you practiced fire making without a match or lighter lately? How about starting a fire in the rain or on a snow covered ground. Practice until it becomes natural, that’s the ticket.

    Went to a liquidation store today & managed to get 2 dozen pairs of 100% wool socks, at $96 taxes in it was a super deal. Im going to give one pair of soaks to all my buddies. Their feet should be toasty warm come winter time.
