Special thanks to BW for sending this poem in. Pretty cool! – Rourke
I am not the wolf, nor am I the sheep.
I am both and yet I am neither.
I am hated by the sheep, for I do not look nor think like them.
I am hated by the wolf, because I know how and why they think like they do.
I am out cast from the sheep, and I hate and

If you thought the title had anything to do with anything other than pruning tomatoes then your mind must be in the gutter. Removing “suckers from the crotch” is a pruning technique for tomato plants that can help grow more fruit and less plant.
First off – What is a “sucker“? A sucker is a growth that occurs in the crotch (area between the stem and branch). Why remove the sucker from the crotch? The

The group I am in is planning a “survival weekend” soon. I am really looking forward to this. Basically we are getting together on a Friday night after work and heading to a piece of land that has a run down barn on it. The barn will serve as a shelter and base of operations. There is no electricity although I am bringing a few small solar solutions to charge cell phones, batteries, etc.

Unless you’re new to survivaldom then you already know about the “Dakota Alert” MURS products and their uses for home and retreat security, both before and after the SHTF. This article focuses specifically on one of the Dakota Alert products, the “MURS Alert Transmitter”, and how it can be modified to expand its functionality and usefulness for both security and as a force multiplier.
For the benefit of anyone that

Let me preface myself with this, in case the word “Catholic” leads you to disconnect without a fair read- Blessed Bishop Fulton Sheen, a godly Catholic man who had a weekly tv program in the 60’s and 70’s, who was respected, watched and enjoyed by people of all faiths, once remarked: “There are not 100 people in the world who hate the Catholic Church, but millions who hate what they mistakenly think She

The Sportsman’s Guide offers quite a variety of ammunition at some excellent prices. One of the .223 Remington options that often sells out at several of my areas local stores is the American Eagle AR .223 Remington 55 grain round. Currently in stock at only $8.99 ($8.54 for Members) for a 20 round box – this is one of the less expensive brass case choices.
As an official Sportsman’s Guide affiliate – any purchases made

So far the my gardens are looking good. My main, largest garden has vegetables such as Crookneck Summer Squash, Pickling Cucumbers, Zucchini, peppers, tomatoes, onions, watermelon, cantaloupe, and more. I planted everything using seeds and transplants and also staggered planting times over the past 5 weeks. By using transplants and seeds AND spreading out the planting times I will extend the harvesting times.
Other raised bed gardens contain more of the same – peppers,

If you’ve been reading the news recently, you might think that corporate America is doing its best to thwart NSA surveillance. But….you have that nagging feeling in your stomach…or the hairs on your neck are standing up every day when you hear about the government’s ability to spy on you. You know by now that any e-mail or file that isn’t encrypted traverses the Internet in clear text that can easily be viewed with

Raising poultry is new to me. I remembered many older skills from my parents day and refined what I recalled from them. Keeping chickens was not one of those things.
The only reason I write this is to show how incredibly easy it is. With a minimum of research you can be having farm fresh eggs for your breakfast.
Since moving to the country, Tractor Supply Co. has become

What follows is a reprint of a post from The National Review which outlines the events prior, during, and after the Benghazi terrorist attack of September 11th, 2012. I have heard from several friends and co-workers that they are sick of hearing of Benghazi and that it is just not important. I wonder of it was one of their fathers,brothers, or sons that lost their life that day if they would feel the same. The

When disaster strikes, you need to be prepared. What would you do if you had to live off the grid for a couple weeks? How about a month? Are you ready? Often those in subjected to extraordinary circumstances in an emergency bond together to form small groups who work together – and group psychology tends to play an important role in survival. So, whether you are technically a “prepper” or not, every person

With the Florida hurricane season a mere few months away, dutiful Floridians such as myself, like to take this time to inventory their disaster kits. After all, it pays to be prepared, right? The Tampa Bay area, my homestead, has been rather lucky the past decade in terms of seasonal storms. As I perused the interwebs for preparedness checklists and took stock of my disaster inventory, I realized two things: a majority of

I have used all types of reloading equipment on up to the Dillon progressives with all of the bells and whistles. I have a Dillon 550 with a dozen drop in heads, a couple Lyman presses, a Lee Load All and MEC for 12 gauge, brass tumbler, dozens of dies and bullet casting factory at the retreat. The fact remains, as wonderful and efficient as they are, they are not very practical,

Vegetable gardening is an essential prepping activity, but most of us don’t want to live on beans as our main source of protein in the event of a food shortage. Enter aquaponics – the marriage of aquaculture (raising fish) and hydroponics (growing plants in water and without soil) together in one integrated system. The fish waste provides organic food for the growing plants and the plants naturally filter the water in which the fish

Alright, as a Survivalist you probably don’t need me to tell you that your health is paramount to your mission. There are more than 45 million smokers in the United States today and I’m going to try to help you become one less statistic….
Kicking the habit can seem like an impossible task, almost like climbing Mount Everest in nothing but swimming gear. But today I am going to give you

I have been to many many schools, training seminars, and hands on courses during my lifetime. I believe all of this and my endless self study and reading has made me more than a modern Renaissance man. I usually have the answer when no one else does or at least the skill in critical thinking to work it out if for some reason I don’t know it.
This doesn’t mean

The Burris Eliminator is one of the highest tech optics available – not cheap either. This video shows one mounted on a tricked out Ruger 10/22. Cool stuff!
These stoves/cookers run the gamut of brand new (the Emberlit) to ages old (the coleman) which I have used for decades, although my storage stove one is new.
The old Coleman helped me through 14 days of no water or power after a Florida Hurricane ripped through. I set it up on the catwalk of my condo and fed myself and adjacent neighbors for those two weeks. I also used

Special thanks to Kenny over at Knuckledraggin My Life Away for publishing this and WesternRifleShooters.com for sharing it.
The use of drone technology within the borders of the United States is becoming more and more concerning. In my own opinion the there is a serious privacy issue being raised in addition to the disconnect between the person on the trigger end of an armed drone and the human life in the video monitor. Real
