A few random thoughts:
- Bunker Billy sent in a link to a great article looking at different fuels for use in a grid down situation. Check it out here – http://www.prepperlink.com/index.php/prepare/getting-started/item/139-kerosene-bug-in
- It is amazing how the White House and other Progressive politicians continue to spin “success” into the Affordable Healthcare Act (ObamaCare). Talk about putting lipstick on a pig and still having a pig.
- I recently mentioned that I was looking at picking up a Ruger LC9 9mm pistol for concealed carry. I managed to check one out and pull the trigger – hate it. Trigger pull is long and heavy. I looked at a Kahr CW9 and loved the way it felt – but again a very long trigger pull. Still looking…..
- Something to think about if you are bugging out into the wilderness – wildlife! Here is a story of an 18 foot python found in Florida. Wow!
- Later this month going on a cold weather camping trip with a preparedness group I am a member of. Temps likely to get down in the 20’s at night – looking forward to it.
- I recently sent out an email to all subscribers passing on some information on an online source for .22LR ammunition. Shortly after the email went out the product was sold out. I received numerous emails from people saying “Thank You” and telling me that they ordered. If I come across any more deals like this I will send out another email blast. BTW – the deal was 500 rounds of CCI Blazer .22LR for roughly $30.00.
- I have always enjoyed the entire Terminator movie series – even Terminator 3. I just started watching Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles again and really enjoy it. It has been awhile since I watched it – fun show.
SITE UPDATE: Wanted to mention a few things going on with ModernSurvivalOnline.
First – I do make some money off MSO. I put an incredible amount of time (and money) into this site and I accept advertising to help pay for site-related expenses and purchase items for review. Honesty, I have charged too little for advertising and accepted too many ads. This is changing as I am lowering the number of allowed sponsors. Selected sponsors will be those that help support Giveaways and Writing Contests while offering nothing but the best in customer service to ModernSurvivalOnline readers. I hope that the fewer ads will result in a better looking website. You will notice the change over the rest of the year.
Survival & Preparedness Download Database – Some of you may not even know this exists. A massive amount of downloadable content is available in the Download Section. I am hoping to make some updates to the database and will likely host additional files on another server. Currently the downloadable files take up close to 20 gigabytes.
Survival & Preparedness Writing Contests – Next contest will be starting in March. I allow multiple entries so start brainstorming some ideas and start writing. I prefer to receive submissions in Microsoft Word – but most any file type will work.
Bug Out Test and Video – I am really excited as I am planning to do take my 15 year old son and perform a “bug out test”. Basically we will take our bug out bags and head into the woods, set up camp, and spend a couple of days. A couple goals will include testing some equipment as well as see what we find that we wsh we had brought. I plan to videotape the trip and upload to YouTube.
Scenario Video/Mini-Movie – I am currently putting together the plot for a post-SHTF fictional video which will portray multiple families in a WROL situation and some of the things they do to survive. The acting will likely be horrible but I think it will be pretty interesting. If anyone has any ideas for the storyline feel free to suggest it.
Other Websites – SeasonedCitizenPrepper.com has really taken off and gained popularity lately. We have a tight, loyal group of readers that often comment and discuss daily posts. If you are not familiar with SCP – it is a site geared towards the older prepper.
BestPreparednessDeals.com is another website under the “Rourke” umbrella and has been around for quite some time. We feature daily deals on all kind of preparedness supplies. I really look to find the best prices on items and showcase them typically Monday through Friday. I even have visitrs to the site email me about deals they know about once in a while. Pretty cool!
Take care all!
