Introduce Yourself • Hello from Arizona

January 15, 2017 vforgemac 0

Hey there all, you can call me Mac and I am 123 seasons old. I was going to state my age in moons but that would be a little much… 30 years though for the mathematically un-inspired. I hail from the more-mountains-than-you-thought state of AZ where the old west still survives in at least 2nd amendment terms. I am not even someone who would consider themselves a prepper but I admire those that know how. I do value self reliance and I’m a total sponge when it comes to learning new things so if the prepper bug bites me so be it! Anyway, I’m here for the knowledge and to disperse it too if I am able or explore networking possibilities. I love Jesus, fitness and ancient history. Thanks for having me :D

Edit: my current interests in regards to prepping are communications and navigation skills. :)

I saw the ultimate prepper vehicle come in here this evening. At least from what I saw of it I would say so.

It was an F550 4 X 4, with some really rugged tires. I’m sure a one of a kind, had a big box type living area built on to it, and boxes for what along the back, it was all solid black, I had to get in to sign up wish I had longer to look at it, the thing was awesome. I wonder if they live offroad or do a lot of desert running or what. That thing had to be $100k or more, it was custom, there was serious money in that it also had the front and back seats too. Maybe just some of the oil people that get their wealth from those wells from Abilene to way way out there. I can’t imagine owning something like that, wow.

Actually we don’t have any to spare, and the Clintons sold the uranium mining rights to Russia. Remember she went over there for a visit, Bill followed along and gave a couple of speeches. Bill received several million for that, then we (the Gov.) sold the mining rights to Russia for pennies. good deal all around, Russia will probably give the uranium back after they refine it…….

It’s all good in the end! The more they raise hell and make fools of themselves, the more votes they loose in the middle! And they still wonder why they lost the election! Could it have anything to do with harboring illegal aliens, killing unborn children, or giving trans genders a choice of restrooms? Swamp

Can You believe this BS, what wood have ben said if this was done when Obumer was sworn in. If they (the radical left ) keep this up how many seats it will cost the Dems. in 2018 ? If you say anything about the Clintons in Ca. someone will always say alleged. Or act like you are crazy for not worshiping at their feet.

Been running ahead of these storms or trying to, ended up way south instead of I 40.
Got caught on I 64, semi overturned, semi tarps torn off or billowing, some big road signs
torn down. That weather was sure a surprise. I kind of zigzagged southwest. I’ve run with
and against winds most of the way, not good. Likely should have gone back, not had issues
like this before in my winter travels, but avoided the ice so what the heck.

I am in Lordsburg, NM tonight, got hit with very strong crosswinds and rain in the desert
so we and I noticed many others stopped early. I was hoping to get to Quartzite tomorrow,
hope I still can. It doesn’t sound like its going to be real warm there either and going to be
cold in Vegas too. Oh well, just one of those years, still enjoying ourselves though.

I am pretty well supplied just in case like I always am, but likely could use more to be safe.

Have any of you ran 95 north in California from around Blyth to Vegas. I’ve run 93 before but didn’t want to go back east, though its a decent road. Oh I know you’ve all missed me. :rofl:

January 15, 2017 daaswampman 0

With lots of the stuff he says he comes across as a complete idiot. For example, go to 6:38 on the video which I link.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HI9tov6A2DI

It all depends on the audience you seek and are trying to influence! I am sure he has no interest in anyone, with practical knowledge of weapons. Seriously – does the truth have anything to do with politics or how most people vote? It takes no brains or much effort to vote, all thanks to our lovely Constitution and the many mistakes of our Founding Fathers.

The bottom line is he is a billionaire with massive financial / political influence and that squeaking noise form some gun loving peons – just doesn’t matter! Or we can all hang onto Trump’s every statements about the Second and they may even be true, but have you ever seen him hunting or even with his hands dirty? Sure his son does some canned trophy hunting, but what does that have to do with the Second?

The Second will stand, but don’t be surprised with some deals on the side. Swamp

The video, it is just another waste of time, just like a preacher – who only preaches to the choir.

Are you sure these people “made” their fortunes or did they inherit them? (I have no clue, I’ve been too busy lately to be up to date on this stuff) And well, honestly? I know of quite a few stupid exceptionally wealthy people. Money doesn’t necessarily make you smart.

On the other hand, while I have a high IQ, I’m poor. So there you go. Life happens in both directions. Enough bad turns with the right timing and you suddenly find yourself flat on your arse wondering what happened.

I will say that for conservatives to be so anti big business (you know that 1 percent thing) I’m surprised you’re not nervous over this development, whether these people are “smart” or not. I can’t say that I’m too fond of the idea and as for them not being able to do worse than the past 8 yrs?? Are you serious? They could do an awful lot of damage in those positions. What about Trumps promises to tax imports? Big business imports their own goods that are made elsewhere cheaper or parts to make their goods here to keep their profits high……..now how is that going to go over with big business? (or this cabinet)

No, these ultra wealthy folks (I’m not including Ben Carson as he can’t be classified big business type) can’t be bribed with cash, but they can be bribed with power, which is what Trump just handed them.

I’m determined to give Trump a chance. But I’m going to be honest that I hope & pray we haven’t just hopped out of the pot straight into the fire. :blink:

I just got a facebook message from a writing acquaintance. Apparently it’s going to be a big surprise–people are going to change their facebook little picture to pictures of “the best first family ever.” (gag me with a spoon.)

Apparently my cover is secure, since my friend obviously doesn’t know what I think of the idiot in chief and his grimacing wife.

This is yet another stupid futile gesture of the left, but at least not as dumb as #bringbackourgirls.

My favorite duty pants are from Tru-Spec. The 24-7 series specifically. You can get them in cotton or poly blend. I wear shorts off duty from the same series. Functional, comfortable, durable, breathable. My Lt. wears the same pants and he’s got massive thighs. Definitely more snug on him than on me.

Thanks for your insight Scoutmaster. I’m sure you get what you pay for. I did get a couple of those UV-5R’s in yesterday from Amazon, put them together, read and watched a couple vids on them. Seems very easy to use and I listened to an FM channel. I thought the sound was real good and that station came in real good for my area. I’m going to program in some of the local weather, police, etc. tomorrow to see how that goes. I’ll try and get together with a friend that has been into them forever to learn from. Who knows, I might just love it and get into it big time.I’m still going to read up and find some good two ways…..Again, thanks for your input.

Ya CI I read on the threat journal about that, D.C. are even calling in 3000 national gaurd troops and more police from other states.

I look for civil unrest starting the 20th and lasting thru Sunday. Ain’t America Great, 1st amendment rights. DJT has his hands full for the next 4 years but he didn’t get where he’s at by backing down from anybody.
