  1. Anything that is over used is bad for you. "Everything in moderation" is the old caution. We have thrown that out of the window and theses days its all about give me more..and make it easy to get. Even biblical sin is about moderation.
  2. Luckily I know the presidents of 2 of the areas land banks...they only loan on 10 or more acres...they said other than that criteria they had no problem.
  3. The wife and I are discussing buying around 10 acres of the most remote land we can find and afford. What's the best way to find cheap unkempt land for a bug out location?
  4. I will be armed with a high powered rifle. In a high point....just waiting. Its the first day of deer season! Honestly I've seen the the A.D.D. crowd at work...I'm not concerned about them at all. The Bond villains behind all this however are enough to make me pay a bit of attention...but with my location I will have plenty of time on this one. Ill spend it watching the plague spread across Africa...that one does worry me....No not in its present form but if it mutates....
  5. Depends on how much money George Soros put in to it. A few well place hard men in the crowd could bolster the snowflakes enough for the authorities to have to come down hard. A few roughed up transsexuals would be a win for them and their propaganda machine.
  6. Got a link?
  7. Just keep the "cork sucking bastiges" out of our country.
  8. For my work I need safety glasses. I buy the kind that are wrap around sun glasses. I have them on the brim of my ball cap at all times...its part of my everyday carry.
  9. I did both..no difference at 100 yards...or 75 yards. IF I miss its on me...the rifle shoots true. Deer season (rifle) starts Saturday. I hate hunting in 80 degree temperatures....but I hate not hunting at all even more.
  10. Ok. I'm sighting in my 270 today. My stand is 14 ft tall. Do I really need to sight in from the same height or will level ground do? Thoughts
  11. I have a backhoe.
  12. Where that land is located (red river county tx) the well water has a strong iron taste south of kickapoo creek. This land is 3 miles south...dang it. Plus the wife REALLY wants a creek/spring...me too so since we are technically in the "country" now this is sort of a no hurry situation so we may as well find the perfect spot. Does anyone know how to buy land for back taxes? I figure there has to be deep woods spits that have been inherited and forgotten. I'd never buy land out from under someone...but if they have just lost interest that is different.
  13. Yeah the water source has already bit us. I found 12 acres in the perfect area....but it was high and dry so its a no go.
  14. Yeah. That was annoying.
  15. Trust her. My wife is as well kind, careing, and trusting....but she is also observant, vindictive and honey badger mean if anything is a danger to her family. If that's your wife too then I'm sure that the change of disposition that would occurs in a shtf would shock you....it's the Momma bear we fear the most. For now there isn't as much need to fear that jogger...when there is she'll knee cap that sucker in the blink of an eye.
  16. Books and wood carving here.....and sutureing,.. to go with the wood carving.
  17. Around 15 years ago I started my journey as a prepper. In addition to a reasonable supply of food stuffs and an unreasonable supply of ammo I wanted to add skills to compliment my new way of life. One of the first skills I chose to work on was identifing wild plants as food and medicine. When I first started I knew maybe 10 plants which is above average...but all true Texas country boys have chewed a stem of sour dock (sheep's soral) at one time or another. Now 15 years in I am able to identify 120+ by name and usage. It has even begin to rub of on my wife and son. ( the boy is well ahead of where I was at 13 ) The hardest part of learning all these plants was finding a book or web site that had good reliable pictures and descriptions of each plant. Most books are nearly useless....half the web sites are just plane wrong. Since I already have done the leg work to find the best places to study plants I thought share them with you. By far the sharpest "plant guy" I have ever known is Mark "Merriwether" Vorderbruggen. He has a book out that is far and away the best wild edible book I have ever used. "Idiots guide to foraging" is 10 out of 10 stars imho. You can find it for about $15 at the other best place....his web site "Foraging Texas" . I know it says Texas but most of the plants talked about are found thru out the south...and a large portion are nation wide. If you ever have the chance to take Dr Vorderbruggen's wild edibles hike\class I highly recommend it as well.....yeah I'm a fan.
  18. You and me both. I was born in boxelder Texas...24 people strong...and have never lived in any other state. I'm not taking common sense and family values to their state...so they can keep their liberal transgender values to their f#$×ing selves.
  19. Her book was mentioned in the class we took. The fellow who gives the class has about 10 books he recommends ...hers was on the list.
  20. Yeah .....I'm in Texas too. Lol
  21. I bet your right. Our plan is to send them off to college with our boy when he goes. Just add hot water...plus his s'mother will sleep better if she knows he is fed. We will re buy at that point.
  22. There is a lot to be said for big ole dumb dogs. We keep an English mastiff on our property...curantly on number 4. We have had one for the last 20 years...in that time only one phyco tried to open the gate without permission. Thor our 150 lb mastiff took the guys entire hand in his mouth and firmly let the jack ass know he wouldn't be getting it back til I said so. This guy was WAY off his meds...babbling crazy stuff and being all round skitzo....but even he stopped dead in his tracks at that point...which gave me time to arm up and run him off. Nothing beats a if dog to keep ALL kids of predators at bay....they work for rude little shitz too.
  23. I recently bought 10 5 gallon buckets of freeze dried meals and 20 #10 cans of various kinds at an estate sale. They were produced in 2012 and had been kept in a 72 degree environment. I figure I've got 10 more years before they spoil. The 2012 end of days stuff has been turning up a bit lately.....I see those $20 Wind up flashlights at every yard sale for $1....I bet I've got 20 so for. Lol
  24. Ok snake. Why the sulphur powder? To mix with phospherous and potash? Add acidity to soil? Keep snakes at bay....nah couldn't be that one.
  25. I've started housing a pellet gun (one of the 1200 ft per second type) on any thing smaller than a coon...but I'm not sure I'd be scared to use it on coyote. It came with 2 barrels and shoots 22 cal pellets at 900 fps...those will punch threw 26 gauge steel. Believe it or not its accurate to 40 yards. I don't think our new pup would like getting any lead thrown his way either. He's only 6 months old English mastiff. Our last mastiff got so old he wasn't enjoying life ...so I put him down. He hated riding in the truck so I saved him that indignity....I really hate having to do that.
