I have started down the path of prepping, but it’s a bit overwhelming. With our world in such turmoil, it feels like time is running out. My adult daughter lives with me but she just isn’t into it…so, if it’s to be…it’s up to me! :?

Welcome from Pennsylvania, Colorado is a pretty state, been there hundreds of times (hunting and fishing).

If your daughter isn’t into to it and she doesn’t want to contribute then charge her rent and buy her supplies. :shakeyes:

Cast Iron, I haven’t heard anything about PM’s being used, but the lines for the ATM’s are as long as those waiting in line for gas.

I saw on the news this morning that there are hundred’s of tractor trailers full of food, water, generators, medical supplies but no one to drive them to the cities/towns. There are a lot of roads that are still impassable and over a week without electricity and could take months to fix. I’m just glad I’m pretty much prepared for something like that.

Back around 20 years or so ago, down in the city (Altoona, Pa), a guy cut off another guy. When they came to a red light, the guy that was cut off came out with a baseball bat and starting smashing the drivers side window out.

The guy that had the window smashed, pulled up his model 1911A1 and gave that guy two, 230 grains of self justice :eek: in the face. Rumor has it that it was a closed casket.

No charges were filed.

What Cast Iron said.

Anything can be used as a weapon, as long as you can get your hand on it. Also tools of opportunity, if your caught with your pants down, a hand full of dirt in the eyes of the other can get you out of dodge.

As far as martial arts, it’s better then not knowing martial arts.

If you’re going to Seven Springs it would be great to see you there.

I still have your # and will text you when it’s a more reasonable hour.

The confusion on where I was going- I was inquiring about the NC event on that topic. Then found out it was opposite this, unfortunately. I was already set on the fair since I’d been wanting to get out here for about 4 years now. I’ll try for NC next year if they’re not opposite each other.

@Rickdun, if you’re also interested in putting faces to names, you can PM here and we can exchange info or agree to meet somewhere at the fair. I’m attending all 3 days.

NJMike, your post was a day late, I left for camp on Thursday and went from there to 7 springs. Wish I had know for sure if you guys were going, you guys could have stayed with me at camp, free of charge, free food, free beer and free BS around the fire. Just got home from there.

Natural Disasters • Re: Atlantic (Hurricane Irma)

September 9, 2017 rickdun 0

I was watching the news and they were interviewing various people and one old timer said he and his will can with stand any hurricane.

A woman and her son were tying up their boat and planned on staying on the boat until the hurricane past.

Another woman was walking her 3 kids and pushing another in a stroller, saying will be ok, won’t we kids.

While talking to another woman, they showed people in the ocean swimming even though there were dangerous rip ties.

Another woman was interviewed on the phone saying her and her son can’t leave because they have a farm and have to take care of the cows.

Stupid is what stupid does.

I have a very bad felling there are going to be a lot of dead bodies after this on.

Water • Re: Banned Pesticides Showing Up in California Water

September 9, 2017 rickdun 0

CI, I’m surprised people don’t get a buzz on by drinking that water in California :drool: . It wouldn’t surprise me at all if more water ways are polluted like her in PA.

They recommend you only eat so many ounces of fish caught in Lake Erie per year and for a woman who’s expecting, not to eat any at all.

Nobody’s fault but our own.

Yes, I have water filters that reduce chemicals (99.999%), at least that’s what they claim.

I tried to get them to leave a day or two early. They were stubborn. But then they’ve no experience with this sort of thing. My immediate concern wasn’t Irma, it was them getting locked in traffic & stuck in the path of the storm as it moves up coast. They’re heading out tomorrow, I hope it’s early enough.

Molly, not to worry, they should be good to go, here’s the latest on Irma as of 2:00 a.m.:

ReadyMom, Gov. Scott was on TV earlier and he stated that the entire state needs to be ready to evacuate as this storm is 5 times more powerful then hurricane Andrew. Now that’s real bad. I’m sure those ladies will be heading north by northwest by tomorrow if not sooner or get in a shelter somewhere and soon.
