    Survival Medicine Handbook-NEW!

    My copy just arrived in the mail today! I'm paging through it now and there is just a ton of information included. I knew this would be a good book to get, but it's even better than I imagined. It's a "must have", folks. Dr. Bones and Nurse Amy have done a great job!

    The Doom and Bloom(tm) Survival Medicine Handbook

    Just ordered my copy! I would encourage everyone to consider purchasing one. Believe me, there is nothing worse than having a loved one needing medical attention and none is available. Had this happen to me twice in the past two months. We, as preppers, can always use our imagination to address most survival needs. When it comes to medical emergencies, we'd better know what we're doing.

    Who home schools?

    Mike, My wife and I just started homeschooling this year for our 7th grader. Wish we had done it sooner! We're using the "Switched-On Schoolhouse" curriculum from Alpha-Omega Publications. It's Christian-based and very popular in this area. We are doing some of the subjects with their computer software and some with the hardcover books. My daughter seems to prefer the books. She's a motivated girl and it's no problem getting her to do her studies. Right now, my wife and daughter are traveling in our motor home visiting some of the southwest areas that she is studying in history. I'm jealous! I've gotta stay here and take care of the animals. If we can be of any help, let me know.
  9. Catfish, Check out this book, "Holding Your Ground: Preparing for Defense if it All Falls Apart". There is an Excel spreadsheet available with it that you fill in as you read the book. When you complete it, it will give you an idea where you stand. Location, population density, proximity to highways, etc. are all included.
  10. Awake, How about posting some pics of your shotgun with the light and sight? We'd love to see it.
