We have a new business park about a mile from our house. Still lots of green space. A creek near by. Business park has hospital, cancer center & other misc medical buildings, local newspaper headquarters (I think printing, not sure), business offices. Lots of opportunities for supplies there. Some options outside the box, I’m sure (I’m thinking hospital buildings will get ransacked soon). Just up the road (about 1/3 mile) from that is a county prison office center. Not sure what would be there or if it would be shut down/secured w. security. I heard we’re getting some type of senior center next to it.

The options, for all of these … if you are quick enough, the timing is right after it’s abandoned are probably pretty good … if you have a pre-plan …. which I don’t. I’ve often thought of the hospital, but hadn’t thought of the other buildings, till this post. I’m going to have to think on this, do some inquiring and see what’s in the other buildings. Easy enough to get to, close enough to make multiple trips. -k

This obviously relates to the Global Warming dispute and can be twisted into anything the proponents of radically reducing human’s footprint on the planet wish.
I believe that the real message here is that there are forces on earth and coming from the heavens that influence and drive events here far greater than the
impact of human activity. The science geeks tell us that 70,000 or so years ago Mount Toba blew a gasket and caused the extinction of most of the then
existing human race. They tell us that humanity was reduced to 7,000 or so people with all of us descended from those few survivors. I have to wonder if
those survivors were the ones that stocked up on the Paleolithic equivalent of Beans, bullets and Bandaids.
When Mount Pinatubo went up it released 300 times more Sulphur dioxide into the atmosphere than the entire human population had released since the
beginning of the industrial revolution. Somehow I have to believe that solar panels, electric cars and recycling are not the droids we should be looking for.
The definition of this planet according to the geologic and palentologic record has been one of dramatic and catastrophic change for millennia.
We have an impact but it appears to be the proverbial “Pfahrt in the whirlwind”.

I have always said voting should be a tested first. A person needs to pass a test about current events, political events and history before voting. Our founding fathers left it to the states to decide who voted, but it was not everyone at first.

Nice ride. Do remember when pulling though if you do have your bed loaded down with gear itll affect your towing capacity a bit. If you do have to bug out you dont want to be pulling a trailer down the road with your front tires off the ground. Even a smaller trailer or hitch pull trailer is better than having nothing in SHTF though. Itll get you out of the weather and elements. Depending on the trailer you get or use, you might want to get a couple small solar panels as well that could charge your batteries or even run your fridge for a few hours a day.

good info…Thanks.

I used to run the biggest RV dealerships on the west coast…many people forget that little tidbit about subtracting bed-weight from towing capacity.

I took it thru serious paces yesterday in the local hills to learn my limits…I had it loaded with 5 filled Waterbricks in the under-bed compartment to see how much they’d shift around. They didn’t really. …..lol…..Lets just say only 2 wheels were touching at one point. :thumbup::clap::D:) (I’ll post some pic’s)

I know it’s not a crawler, but with all the other bells and whistles I’ll take it!
Handled anything I could/should throw at it like a dream…I’m actually extremely impressed at what it handled as an everyday driver.

MPG did drop quite a bit but I was putting it thru some serious climbing thru certain pathways….averaged out to 15.1 MPG after a freeway trip back…about 100 miles RT.

Going to get a soft tonto cover to help on the mileage/casual security….we’ll see what it does if anything.

If you want a truly SMELLY livestock animal, the prize HAS to go to a goat buck. Does (the girls) and wethers (castrated males) as well as YOUNG intact males DO NOT stink.

Thank you very much for that information.

the EBT glitch on purchase limitations was more of a demonstration of how fast retail stores can be cleaned out – these welfare people responded to the “word” being spread ONLY by word of mouth – there was no major incident or something being broadcasted over the networks …. you can just imagine the horde and the chaos panic if it was a SHTF much more obvious ….

if the shopping frenzy stayed half way civilized it would be a Black Friday situation – but – you start mixing in the desperate people that don’t have the buying resource and they start looting – violence & rioting are looters second nature …. something that could be a killer

It started out at 4:00AM, Shovel, shovel, shovel! A mini shtf situation. We’ve got a ton to do, but we couldn’t do a thing til we got this snow out of the way, and man was it heavy! This was just 9″, but it was way worse to move than the 20″ we got a couple weeks ago. Today we are finally going to finish pruning the orchards and start rigging up summer gear. Later today we are grabbing the bugout bags and heading out in the woods for a hike and cookout. Probably just going to bring some hotdogs, but we will make use of things in our bags to make camp and fire.

Thanks for posting the articles, very good reading. I remember in 1990 or 1991, it started snowing down here in October and didn’t stop until May. A guy I worked with back then was from Texas and he said, up here you have two seasons, 9 months of winter and 3 months of bad sleding.

Enjoy your snow. I guess global warming has taken over since the year without a summer.

Starting off this month’s thread.

We FINALLY started construction on the stable :clap::clap: Got half up the “uprights” for the first two stalls up, as well as the top 4x4s, and bracing 2x4s. We had to stop earlier than planned, as we had rain moving in. Picked up some more .22 LR (the local ranch store actually has a decent supply.)

Also made arrangements to go check out a 4-horse trailer tomorrow. I’ve been on the lookout for one, since we currently do NOT have a way to transport the horses any distance, and wanted something large enough that we could get both horses AND any additional livestock (such as the 3 goats) into in case evacuation were necessary (such as another wildfire.)Will check out the trailer tomorrow, and see if it meets our needs.

I agree with everyone above. America is gone, maybe not in my lifetime but it is. Just as people sat around and watch Hitler come to power and did nothing we are doing the same with the shadow government.

Remember the chinese plan long term. Remember the Muzzies spent 24 years building a cannon to take Constantinople and another 23 years shooting 1,500 lb balls to knock down the walls. We see what they are doing and do nothing to stop them.

We have allowed ourselves to be dumbed down, get sold on social programs, believed the crooked politicians, and bled dry financially.

The elite that want world order their way need to destroy America first. We are getting hit in some many directions that we have resorted to hiding watching reality shows thinking the bad guys will go away. We sit around like the Jews did in WW2 in the ghettos waiting to die. Too stupid or shell shocked to fight back.
