  1. sounds like your wearing a 1970s leisure suit, good mention though
  2. already do all that my traps are right now live traps damn coons and squirrels are my trouble but since they taste good no problem to big with more taters and gravy. anyone that is not up on self defense or "gun" handling is way behind the 8 ball. it's not that training is not important but there comes a point where your gilding the Lilly and dry firing is the cause of more firearms damage than every other use of a firearm unless one uses a snap cap and if you already know how when and what to shoot it's not time well spent. Prepping the art of being prepared I am already there all I do ow is back fill and reorder until the flag goes up. I'm sure I will want some new toy but to be truthful if people can keep their head down 90 days there will be very little to deal with as all the unprepared will have dealt each other out of the game. Cabin fever and doing ninja rolls in the urban jungle scoping out all the stuff you should already have only places you in the cross-hairs of a opportunistic sniper who's spotter will clean you like a chicken for Sunday dinner. water holes are always a bad place to go to as everyone else will be needing /wanting water. depending on the situation rivers streams and wells may be polluted by the dead since animals will be left to their own roving packs of dogs will add to the otherwise difficult task of roaming around. many a good man has walked up on a spider hole handful of punji sticks leg traps fall traps etc etc etc. its great to be an armchair commando the field test is a bit trickier. I can also see where like many countries in the recent unpleasantness released their zoo critters I know of people that keep large dangerous exotic pets. roaming through homes and commercial centers may lead to some real surprises people are funny that way if they want to punish people that try to steal their sh*t it may have strings attached ! I already know how to field strip or dress most anything I will encounter that I need or can use if it takes a large vehicle to move better to decommission and move on. piles of goods probably have love apples hidden and some have NO DELAY click bang in a real nasty world there are thousands of ways to meet your end and curiosity kills more than cats. most fields can hold hundreds of people ask any Masai warrior . Mountains or hills can hold an avalanche of rocks and Switzerland has never been invaded by any army since 1499. Defenses are not always perfect as General Patton stated, that fixed fortifications are monuments to mans stupidity". Sun Tzu, " The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting. My quote is screw em' all but 6 and baptize them in sh*t or If I follow anyone they are in chains. whoever said it ," if you want a friend get a dog was a deep thinker and knew the frailties of the human condition. If you see a dog growling at it's own shadow think of me I have trust issues
  3. The Syrian golden Hamster is vulnerable to extinction MY HEART goes out to all those Syrian Hamsters maybe the Syrians need to go home and care for them ? I hear the Gerbils arn't doing so hot either so maybe those Saharan peoples could go back and tend their flocks of Gerbils goats and camels --- I mean if Animals are soooo important why is the international save the critter foundation not demanding that the people that live in the region take responsibility for their critters ? All I can say is where is my Canadian seal meat ? I looked all over China mart and no seal had chicken beef goose duck rabbit and all kinds of fish I guess they are just not so cute or important as them Canadian seals I guess if there were more cattle in the frozen north they would not have to club seals all I know is anything tastes good Bar-B-Qed ask any NAMese if rat on a stick ain't the bomb especially when your moon waking drunk between bars
  4. Well here is the gift that just keeps on giving FUKASHIMA ! record levels of radiations In order to understand how this is so bad we need to look at a hose power sprayer that has a bottle attached where you put in soap. I have this one very good model this is just an example of how water works. Soap is place in the bottle as the water passes it is mixed with the soap and is sprayed under pressure and cleans it can mix many chemicals and spray them and this model does it well. consider the bottle as one of the individual units in this example it contains radioactive material the hose end is where the water is pumped in to cool the reaction of the material the nozzle is where all the leaks flow out into the pacific so all the billions of tons of water that is contaminated is slurried in the unit and is radiated I do not know the coastal currents but as sure as god made little green apples all the sea life that passes is effected whales sharks all the way down to plankton dependent on the life span as to when another organism eats it it will be effected and it's offspring years after the Russian Chernobyl fish and mammals have numerous genetic problems extra useless legs and other horrible deformities. It is my opinion that just as TEPCO hid information so has the EU and other agencies so as not to alarm the public If there were a real investigation into the long term effects of radioactive particles the increases in cancers from the plume that was tracked that would be very illuminating if we also had the data of health issues over lets say 20 years pre Chernobyl. If we have to use sunscreen to protect us from the sun why do we get giggled at for 2 real disasters well really more the testing grounds in Nevada was close enough to give all the actors in a john Wayne movies cancer IMHO. most have forgotten 3 mile Island it was small but did effect some area people. then there are the ones you will never hear about deep deep in the oceans --but I digress, the world is a natural pump using the temperature differential and deep trenches of the Arctic and Antarctic to flow water to the tropic zones and back hot water rises cold water falls the salt in the oceans kills a lot of bacteria the sands filter as the clouds it is a real wonder the largest still we know of constantly desalinating filtering and redistributing all the water of the earth since the creation of God he place into action and even with our mistakes it will keep right on pumping with the geothermal heat sun moon and wind until God otherwise dictates. One problem is that China feed t's population on fish and al of the China straights the Philippines and Australia and many populated islands are going to see and feel the effect many of those people migrate to the U.S. if you think we are once removed I say guess again IMHO.
  5. "just like J@ckson & Sharpton" ----I didn't know Al gore was Black when Al sold his interest in his satellite station to Al-Jazira I would have thought he lost all credibility but then the far out left will look like a bunch of trained seals as long as you throw them a fish.
  6. IMHO they can stick it where the sun don't shine
  7. I think it is high time to stop the White house press corp daily meetings. all they do is cry like babies and make questions sound like indictments of fact. If all they are going to do is make up stories out of thin air they could do it from home The white house could send out a daily briefing and answer questions from the many events Trump has with his base. The press does not get it they set a trap he pushes them into it they bait the hook he is swimming in another pond I liked Laura ingram's analogy that Trump is the Roadrunner and the press and his detractors are the coyote ---- BEEP BEEP ! by the time they figure it out he's gone and on to bigger and better things. We do still have to consider the deep state and those on both sides that are corrupt because they would rather take America down than have their corruption exposed go to jail or loose their power and illegal gains. Let us not forget that Soro's has injected 18 BILLION into his antifa movement as well as numerous other news and TV hosts slashing burning and ratcheting up the violent rhetoric and spuing hatred toward Trump and his family even going so low as to attack Trump's son and I have never seen a less political First Lady than Malania She is a foreign born she is multilingual is always well dressed and a pleasant apolitical First Lady, I have gotten sick and tired of first ladies that act like they are the one that got elected in this case she surely did not slow the Don's roll in fact the opposite IMO. I have read some very disgusting comments just as bad as the FAKE Russian Dossier When they had the truth on their side about the last half dozen presidents they held back or buried the information as long as they were risen swap gas they kept it slow and easy just enough to keep the two stupid sides on each other. We see now that both sides lied and Trump has killed thousands of regulations that were strangling American exceptionalism and both sides had their hand in making that happen. everything they said could not be done Trump is doing in one year he did What Obummer said could NOT BE DONE ! Obummer said he would NEVER BE PRESIDENT ! if a man makes a proclamation or prophesy and it does not come to pass he is a fool not to be trusted because his information is false his advisors are fools as well. I also place both Bushes in that same category, I was in complete shock when they made both statemsnts and actions that neutered the U.S.A. gutted our ability made horrible treaties and agreements like that BIG SUCKINING SOUND NAFTA . The problem with Americans is they have a memory as long as the next useless quote to make them feel warm a fuzzy and soon later they find they have been sold down the river and when questioned both sides say the same thing we had to make a deal no one get everything they want ! especially the American people that damn well pay for everything like both sides of a war all the U.N. programs and then stupid Americans give to UNICEF and other non vetted agencies that squander the money for every dollar they give pennies and WHO ( world health organization) is a friggin joke American Christians give more accomplish more and waste little helping feed educate and GIVE health care FOR FREE. That is what the deep state the left and all the ISM's like communism socialism etc. etc. don't want you to know. The fact is that in order for them to take over they first must have to control both parties break the system financially and courts create fear and constant criminal acts like OH LET's SAY TERRORISM through false flags bank closures --- well just look at Venezuela and you get the Idea. but in Venezuela they want a different brand of Marxism because this version and leader failed and ISM's always bury their failures so Madureu has got to GO !
  8. It seems that global warming is a misnomer or better yet a bust. Weather is NOT a linear thing there are decades that are dry called droughts and rainy seasons even in desert areas. Climatologists should be very ashamed of themselves for jumping on the global warming bandwagon it is suppose to be a science but they turned it into a side show marketing the Kyoto treaty carbon tax and here again Trump was right by pulling out of the Paris accord as any fuel and many products would have skyrocketed in price over night. This area sees this kind of weather every 10 to 20 years and I am glad this will kill off many ticks fleas limit insects come spring. This is a natural defense that helps mankind the earth is an amazing thing it can heal itself and overcome things mankind thinks we need to have a superfund for I would love to see all these "funds" audited, and I bet my bippy they have figured out how to clean them out. just like every other cash cow they make up out of paper telling us all kinds of bedtime stories of how they are looking out for us. We are praying for everyone north it is going to be a long bitter winter and please all of you take safety seriously drive like your bringing your first child home from the hospital try to be a good neighbor check on each other in times like this people trying to stay warm die from carbon monoxide in their homes and sometimes stuck in a snowbank in their vehicles. never use charcoal indoors be very careful with liquid fuels and make sure appliances can be used indoors for heating r cooking purposes, still make sure of proper ventilation. you can use aluminum foil between your sock and shoe or between 2 socks. just wrap lower foot not the whole foot maybe 3/4 air flow to prevent foot sweating because that will make your feet freeze or get really cold. Layers and even a slicker suit to cut the wind your vehicle should have supplies in case that your stranded.
  9. Wind in trees is diffused unless its broadside in an open area in hunting distances of less than 200 yards i would keep my hunting shots 100 to max 150 for so many reasons but mainly flight time, bullet performance, back stop /other hunters safety as bullets can travel 1.5 miles take right angles on ricochets so better to be cautious IMO. I have shot most all my groups less than a pack of cigarettes at 300 wind rain (lots of that sh*t) sleet or hail including heat waves or mirage effect. it is beyond 300 where in most people start to have a problem mostly because they do not have access to ranges that long and time to practice. friends of mine all come to the same conclusion that most figure if they can hit a pie plate at a hundred it's good to hunt with and that is scary for the animal I mean Other accuracy is not vetted on the same curve or rules instead of subsistence it is existence and that is a whole different game and the rules are rough to nonexistent.
  10. well testing continues cans laid down in 2012 only less than 1% had issues it was obvious indent was weak or puffed up [ can ends] this was remotely stored stable temp in a root cellar. some items need to be dried / flaked like potatoes highly acidic fruits should be bought in jars like fruits pickles or peppers. My original thought was long term dehydrated or freeze dried got in 2000 and are unaffected . A can / soda rack oldest first shows the best method for rotation in 2 to 3 years everything shou;d be used and refreshed so there should never be any loss. to refresh the home made desiccant /O2 / oxygen absorbers patch of 100% cotton piece of 4 ought steel wool about a teaspoon worth {scant drop of water on it} top with 1/2 teaspoon canning salt wrapped in the cotton patch & tied with bread ties dropped into a quart to a gallon jar to store dried stuff like beans store in a cool dark place. Steel absorbs oxygen when it turns to rust salt also absorbs dampness all of these including cotton are edible / will not bother you in tiny amounts bot do remove the O2 or Oxygen from inside of containers the size of the absorber would be the internal size of your container and I would use more than just a BIG SINGLE as in a confined space depending on pack density one will not effect the whole area within the lets say a drum. * canning salt has no other elements like Iodine etc. it is also good for canning A good source of "PURE" salt is water treatment (softner) salt you can find it at China mart and harware stores for 5 bucks for 40 pounds get granular not pellets it is more useful in that medium as it is easier to measure /use. store in snap lid 5 gallon buckets with a seal in the lid this lasts as long as the buckets. I buy buckets or get them free from POOL companies these are bleach pucks or pellets I salvage all the dry bleach and place in a single bucket and in / on an area where the runoff will not kill grass or my plants or bleach stone or concrete, I wash out all the buckets and lids allow to completely dry and seal the lid and store until I need them. Grain or flour or meal needs to be frozen 10 days wrapped in a large towel and allowed to slowly come to room temperature so as not to absorb moisture from the air after 2 days place in a Mylar bag I get mine from www.beprepared.com Ffill the bag wipe dust from left over inner bag with dry paper towel remove all the air twist bend back to it self and tie very tight with a piece of cord fit into bucket and seal I have used flour after 10 years with no appreciable difference in taste freezing removes moisture kills insect larvae which is in ALL flours and grains or else you will open your bag and it will be filled with weevils in an emergency you can use a sifter to remove them but why have them at all. Dried bleach / powdered or in pucks CANNOT BE ALLOWED TO GET WET IN A BUCKET !!! THEY WILL BUILD UP HEAT AND GO BOOM ! so make sure if you want to safe it seal the lid well and store in a cool dry place until you need it. Survival is not ONE thing it is broad base of knowledge it is so vast that I would cut paste and use your office program to make documents print and make a preppers notebook in case you need a hard copy, as well as save files and videos on a flash drive. Keeping recipes for quick breads so you do not have to waste hours making old fashion recipes and using a lot of resources too cook, find the best method try and test for taste and how long it lasts. I had a devil of a time tracking down a good pilot rackers recipe because many use oil and oils get rancid and make the crackers taste very bad, This is why stored crackers after a few onths taste like crap crackers will also absorb scents or even pickup dusty odors so pilot crackers need to be stored in a air tight jar or I buy #10 canned pilot crackers. breads and cakes can be cooked in a Iron skillet under low to medium heat but you need oil / cooking grease or fat. One last bit is you can buy 5 gallon buckets of cooking lard you can repack in mason jars and can them in a bath canner make sure the edge of the jar is clean before placing the lid before you place them in the bath canner after they cool they will seal or PING those that don't you can reclean the jar edge and use a NEW lid and try again or just use it first --- keep open ones closed in a cool or refrigerated place until you need it. All of you thinking you don't use "LARD" or need it think again, manufactured "FOOD" like twink'les and other such items use all kinds of oils greases and saturated and non saturated oils and fats labeled in such a way you have no idea that they are actually FAT. some are very bad for your cholesterol count ! the best pie crust is made from flour pinch of salt and using a dough cutter cutting in "lard" there is also vegetable lard as it does not burn as easily as butter. it is flaky light and OH SO GOOD ! for cobblers pies and Quiche's although Quiche is not considered a Man's food (thats just silly) it is a good way to use up excess eggs before they go bad and make them into a good hearty meal you can add left over meat vegetables and greens in them. Frying was a way to add texture flavor and caloric value like gravy potatoes and breads in the old world people actually worked in all kinds of weather and needed the extra fat and calories to sustain them in hard labor over hours in the cold you body need fats and oils to make your skin elastic and build most every type of cell by converting it to collagen the basic building block for all cells. I have eaten "fried" biscuits over a coal fire cooked in an iron skillet because we were camping and had no oven made cake in a dutch oven I guess if i had to make an extended camp or old homestead I would have a griddle fry pan 2/ lid and a dutch oven in cast iron they are heavy but nothing cooks like cast iron after you wipe it out wipe on a bit of lard heat it and store it for the next use it does not need to be "washed" the seasoning "baked on oil" makes it fairly non stick a hot pan sticks less start from a cold pan will stick every time. Dutch ovens can be hung over the fore with a triple tree on a chain placed in or buried in the coals or next to them as tour heat recipes needs allow. accessories should be a stainless spatula regular spoon, slotted spoon, ladle and carving fork a measuring cup flour sifter flour bucket or can w/ lid chain hook on each end and three legged "dog" to hold your pot and kettle over the fire you need a bowl for making bread a cutting board and a rolling pin and your going to need a big mule to haul all of it including tents tarps and sheets I would carry stainless mess trays and coffee cups as well as a coffee pot with peculator "guts" at least 12 cups as you need hot water for cleaning scalding hot drinks and to tote water OH and a stainless bucket. just remember everything is HOT and needs a glove rag or mitt to handle we ain't talking prissy kitchen cooking of today !
  11. 900 yards with a22 LR 900 yards 22 LR
  12. Calcium hydroxide or called slaked lime not to be confused with Quick lime or Lime but these can be used to cover smells of out houses lime can burn the skin Here is a link to understanding lime the uses and how to make lime products or convert lime to plasters mortars etc. LIME
  13. it's an old joke why Hillery wears pants suits now but when Hillery was running w/ bill on his campaign the advisors told her to quit wearing dresses because her balls were showing We have a bush running for land commissioner here in Texas I hope people remember how Jr and senior sold us a bill of crap.
  14. A BOB (bug out bag) or GHB (get home bag) is a cornerstone of preparedness, because when an emergency occurs there is little warning. I am not or claim to be a medically trained person doctor or Indian chief, I advise a first aid to a EMT level group of classes and to inform yourself online, remembering your legally responsible in some cases and should send a cold chill only a doctor or Nurse practitioner (specific) can give/ administer/ / prescribe medications EMERGENCY means a world of incalculable extremes that even the best equipped fire and emergency agencies must use other means to extract a injured person, remember that. Recent mudslides,earthquakes, hurricanes and tornadoes or how about an accident on the road ? in an instant your a on scene first responder or need to sustain life of your own family members even yourself until a emergency response can be on site. The misnomer that the world is going to end is not just a recent event, BUT the world for some ends everyday and sometimes because they or a on site responder did not have the basic first aid knowledge or first aid kit enhanced with some very basic cheap items. Water is number 1, A stainless steel bottle/s of at least one quart, remembering never give water to unconscious or injured just dampen lips pat face it they are hot. an easy way to cool is to take towel wet and whip in a swinging motion in the air will cool a great deal. Stem bleeding #2 Stem is not stop and sometimes all you can do is slow it to a trickle, never remove a dressing add over retain pressure with a wide strap like a luggage strap with a cinch for smaller areas gauze, athletic tape and box of kotex a few Ace bandages in addition to a basic first aid kit and a Swiss army knife not a Chinese knockoff because this last a lifetime Warmth or shade of a blanket is 3 always have a real blanket like a fleece throw and a couple of space / emergency blankets remember not to move a person although they may look fine internal or unseen injuries may cripple or kill in dire emergencies / fire etc. you may have no choice splinting / immobilizing Paint stir sticks are about as cheap and easy to carry and use as anything I could imagine other than simple newspaper or magazine.try not to move the injured limb, splint or secure to the body in place, 550 paracord is useful as well. Other purposes of our "bag" is also personal comfort and that includes food drink to suit the climate you can buy MRE heaters you can also have cold packs that when the pouch within the bag is broken it turns almost to ice key areas to cool someone from a raging fever or heatstroke is to lower the bodies temp as fast as you can placing a cold pack under the armpits neck at the carotid area and even the crotch. wetting the body with alcohol is quick but water and fanning is good in summer shade is needed o keep from reheating. Weather appropriate clothing in winter your swimming trunks ain't going to make it. a full Tyvek suit from Homedepot is cheap wind and waterproof tiny when folded and disposable get it in a larger size to cover all of you with your winter clothing consider snow shoes or ice cleats/ crampons as falling or slipping is going to wear you out time and distance has killed more people from not being able to get to safety. snow chains ? if you need them only once they are well worth it. If you live where there are mountains hills and gullies a rope like Kernmantle 9MM or 10MM climbing rope 3 or 4 "real" weight bearing caribiners look for used on EBAY as this is pricey new and you may never need it but it makes a good tow rope in fact a few tow straps connected with Caribiners could work. even if you can't another person on site might be able to use the equipment and if that is all we can do is be to help we have done more than 10 people goggling although calling 911 is the very first thing to do. My BOB or GHB may have other items specific to my experience needs or training / knowledge as should yours not all of this need to be expensive, rummage through garage sales thrift and resale shops a back pack and all the items won't cost that much. THE END OF THE WORLD, Ask anyone that has survived any catastrophic weather or natural disaster event fire or bridge collapse ? bridge failures 2000 to present Bridges connect water isolated or impassable areas to livable drivable land imagine a winter like this and or a heatwave and your stuck in traffic for a plain accident I have been for many hours do you have enough fuel to run your precious AC or heat do you have a gas can so if there is a station you can go get some ? do you have cash in case the ATM's don't work ? do you have spare key hidden in case you lock yourself out of your vehicle in a crisis as can happen when your preoccupied ? only stupid people think they will never die or get injured or sick of for that matter get in a jam. People with their feet on the ground and w/ common sense choose to mitigate and be prepared mentally and with the basic items. Why a BOB or GHB because it is being physically responsible for yourself family and unfortunate souls in mortal danger who may be too stupid to have thought for anyone else including themselves
  15. I did not see where you could have an opinion other than what the little icons decided was PC or their version of life as they saw it. Some were decent I hope they find a new better home it's always a bummer to invest time and see it evaporate. I saw some of your posts there wally as I would peek in now and again as I do on a few sites, but I guess it has been a while that is why I had no idea of the change.
