Re: Stocking up on food while you can.

Wow. "While you can..." CNN-like. I did a few minutes of food shortage reading on Canada and it seems to be the same as the rest of North America. Wealth related...your homeless are mostly overweight too, or they do not eat at all because of drug addiction. So much space! I'm up early and about to g...

Re: Prep WINS - Post YOUR Prep related wins and saves!!!

Worked with bow yesterday. Spring Turkey starts tomorrow. Wind was ferocious so I gave it up, came inside, and looked for 12g turkey loads. Found them. Took 2 squirrel and 2 rabbit from the freezer. Let them thaw. Searched for a quick recipe online. Found one. Recipe: https://guide.sportsmansguide.c...

Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

In my previous post, I was a bit flippant about food insecurity; however, I have seen, watched and read different stories about food lines in the U.S. this morning already. I missed the first area named but the others were Pittsburgh and Wisconsin. In the video I watched, cars were lined up for mile...

Fantastic. One of the reasons I like to return here is to read/see your ideas and experimental tinkering. Well done.

Re: War of the Worlds - 2020 Epix Series

I really like this series. Since getting back to TV recently, I tried to get caught up on zombie stuff and SF. I watched Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (loved it) and all of the WotW series thru S1E8... My opinion: fantastic take. I like the Euro-influence, the seemingly futuristic joining of mecha...

There were no known cases in my county in WV; however, I have returned to my main home in Virginia where there are about 25 cases in the county. We are app. equidistant between DC and Richmond and reside near two rivers. On a good note, one of the first people that tested positive in this state has ...

Re: Stay in city or attempt the wilderness?

A guy named Mick Jones once asked that question. "One day it's fine and next it's black; So if you want me off your back. Well, come on and let me know: Should I stay or should I go?" I don't think there is a right answer. Like so many of the questions posed in this hyper-sensitive and inherently ab...

Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

Asking nicely...could the name of the thread be changed to perhaps... Electric "Avenue?" I've seen a notice, and more recently heard a report on NPR that the other word is being tied more and more closely to extremists. I am not, so... the center must hold. Wouldn't want people happening upon this s...

Tell me more about the threat? Does anyone that lives there drink alcohol or use drugs? Of his options, I'd add a good lockbox and safely secure them. A group of 20-year olds with ball bats or broom sticks can take apart just about anything in about 15 seconds. The best proven shot should stand over...

I fight hard to prevent drawing full conclusions. But I do collect one premise after another. If I make it to the end of a sting I try to remember the completion and consequence.
