pace count beads.

Recommended Posts

The short answer is: they are used in Land Nav to keep track of your paces (100 meter pace count) to have the ability to do precise navigation without a GPS. When trying to move between waypoints and/or find caches, knowing how far you traveled is paramount to finding your gear.

OK, I have enough trouble losing Rosaries without them being camouflaged! They would be cool though. I give them away to anyone who needs one but I've noticed, the more expensive the Rosary, the shorter the amount of time I get to keep it. I have this old, plastic, glow in the dark, cost me $.99 Rosary that I've had for years; well over a decade. They'll probably bury me with it!

 

I had this beautiful, almost $200 Irish marble Rosary with a Silver Crucifix and such that I had less than 2 hours before someone NEEDED a Rosary and that was the only one I had on me. I never even got to pray with it! NO ONE will ever convince me that the Lord does not have a sense of humor!

 

Not too sure how we got pace count beads hijacked into Rosaries .... I guess this discussion could go to the Religious thread (for you new guys, we have one on religion) if anyone objects to the hijack. Apologies for the side trip down the prim rose path.

A rosary has a crucifix, then a short section with a large bead, three small beads, and another large bead. The large part is divided into five decades, or sets of ten, with ten small beads separated by large beads. There are certain prayers for each bead and the crucifix. Basically, the crucifix is for the Sign of the Cross and the Apostle's Creed. The large beads are for the Our Fathers and the small beads are for the Hail Marys. I won't go into the various Mysteries, and I'm probably forgetting some things. I'm sure Capt Bart can do a much better job of it than I can.

    • This is a great inspiring article. I am pretty much pleased with your good work. You put really very helpful information.
       
    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
