The wire needed might be less important on shorter runs, in dry weather a fence wire and ground may do for a few miles, in moist weather the wire has to be insulated, or on insulators. The preferable is a pair of twisted copper wire awg 20 shold do for a pretty long run.

As to the original post, as long as I’m not already super stressed, I can let most things just pass as it’s not worth getting into things most of the time. But as stresses pile up, I know my temper gets more volatile…so I try and de-stress early and often. Life is too short to get into it with an idiot that isn’t causing actual harm to you or your loved ones.

President Trump said in an interview with the Financial Times that if China won’t put the squeeze on North Korea, the U.S. will take care of the problem.

President Trump is to meet with China this weekend, I think China will do a little squeezing on North Korea for Trump, only because they need him to keep the trade lanes between them and us open. If not, well, all h-ll may just brake loose.

Guns • pistol optics

April 3, 2017 Permafrost 0

So I did a little swapping and ended up with a Ruger Mark IV Target pistol. Normally I’m a iron sights kind of guy but I thought I would try something different. I was thinking about putting something on this one. I figure I will use it for grouse and the occasional fox or rabbit. I have looked at stuff like the Burris Fastfire 3, but I am not a fan of just a little dot. I’m looking for something like the Burris (size wise) but with a cross or something larger than just a little dot, and maybe like a 2x or 3x magnification. Anyone out there have any suggestions, or any experience with mounting optics on the Ruger platform? Is it even worth it?

General Preparedness Discussion • Re: Shall we play a game, V

April 3, 2017 Permafrost 0

Just got back in town and catching up on my reading.

I can think of a few things I might venture out of my cabin for if things got really bad, but the question would be why are they that bad. EMP, pandemic, civil war, economic collapse? Season would probably be my deciding factor for making a town run, in the summer I can not be tracked because I am using the waterways as my “road” system but in the winter I leave tracks in the snow that can be followed.

Even with the added risk I think I would try to make the trip in the winter, it just gives me more options for travel. Either by foot (snowshoes) or dog team or snowmachine, this would be the way to get to town. If someone is doing to track me for hundreds of miles in the snow in subzero temps then so be it. My top priorities for making the trip would be solar/wind system parts, salt, spare winter clothing and meds. There are probably lots of things that would be low on the priority list but they could be grabbed if they were readily available, and I would probably stop by the home in town to see if there was anything there (probably looted if its really that bad) that was of use. Fairbanks is a dog mushing mecca so there are many vets, and so there are many places to get meds or other medical supplies that some might not think about. There are only 2 stores specializing in off grid power, but there are many buildings that have solar or wind setups where parts for my system might be found. While I hate the idea of exposing myself to the risk of town, I am also a realist. I realize that I may need something and I might be able to trade furs or meat for it (collapse) or take/scavenge it (pandemic), I just think it would have to be something pretty important to go over 200 trail/river miles in the winter to get into Fairbanks proper.

North Korean Defector: Kim Would Use Nukes on US
http://www.nbcdfw.com/news/national-int … 41983.html

(VIDEO at link, above)

North Korea’s “desperate” dictator is prepared to use nuclear weapons against the United States and its allies, a senior defector told NBC News.

Thae Yong Ho was North Korea’s deputy ambassador to the United Kingdom until he defected to South Korea this summer. Though not directly involved in his country’s nuclear program, he believes it “has reached a very significant level of nuclear development.”

Estimates peg North Korea’s nuclear arsenal at upward of eight weapons, but with no ability to attach them to a long-range rocket, or ICBM, capable of hitting the U.S. Thae said that ruler Kim Jong Un wants to maintain his rule with ICBMs, and a senior official told NBC News in January that Kim’s government was ready to test-fire an ICMB.

“Once he sees that there is any kind of sign of a tank or an imminent threat from America, then he would use his nuclear weapons with ICBM,” Thae said in an exclusive interview on Sunday.

Last Friday was pizza night as every Friday night is in our household.

Tried using the starter made with beer and using beer instead of milk . . . what a disaster. It was so bad, I ate one slice, picked the shrimp off the rest of the pizza and gave the rest to the chickens the next day.
That is how bad it was.

For pizza dough, stick with milk or half milk and half water.

That was about ten years ago.

$8 for a brick was an abnormally good price and not a regular retail shelf price – like 12-14 years ago an average big box retail shelf price was $10 – went up to $12-$13 …. that’s where it was before Obammy and the price explosion – doubt we see it on the shelf ever again at that price – could see maybe $18 ….

Agreed.

I spend the extra cash and get the, what I consider, higher quality ammunition. Lapua, RWS, SK, Wolf, Ely.
SK Standard Plus is going for $63.99 for 500 count over at Midway.
I have had one failure to fire with that line of ammunition.

The price of .22LR is one of the reasons why I got into shooting air rifles. For a little over $50, I can have 2k match grade pellet delivered to my door. Two or three cents per pellet vs. $0.13 per .22LR round.
And I can shoot off the back deck and no one is the wiser.

I got a case of 5000 for $145 less than 10 years ago. I’d love to see that again but with the falling value of the dollar probably not. Just one more indicator that our ruling elite don’t know what they are doing, or if they do then they are truly evil.

OAR, I am very young at heart, but my bones say I’m old.

OAR, I’ll say that was a long time ago, you must be REALLY REALLY OLD.

You must be really really young. ha. Less than 10 years ago. I do have some ammo left over from the great war. The C-rats are starting to taste old though and the cigs are dry. I still love the chocolate cake in them though.
