Looking ahead to the 2016 Presidential elections I am really curious to see what the Republican Party are going to offer up as a candidate. Chris Christy? Seriously? Sure – he would be better than Obama but is he going to guide this county in the right direction? I don’t think so. It is likely whomever is nominated for the Republicans will end up being the lesser of two evils….again. Hate to be negative and I hope I’m wrong but there are just too many uninformed voters out there – on both sides.
My Crossfit and dieting continue to go extremely well. I am hitting the box(Crossfit gym) at least 4 times per week. My diet is very clean Monday thru Friday with some cheating on the weekend. I am getting more agile, strength is holding, and my cardio is getting better. I am now coaching one of the Cardio HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) classes which is quite an accomplishment for me.
I just read about the X-Rated Poster that was put up in a Middle School in Kansas. Insanity. Who in the world would think that placing a poster that lists terms such as “masturbation” and “touching each others genitals” would be appropriate for 13 year olds? Just another indication of the morale decay we are going through.
A buddy in the preparedness group I am a member of has managed to purchase several 60 gallon pickle barrels of which I am going to get three. Looking forward to adding 180 gallons of water to my supplies. The situation in West Virginia is still fresh in my mind. Can’t have enough water.
I am going to be pulling for the Patriots in today’s NFL games. Though – if Denver wins not a big deal as I like Payton Manning. Either way – down with the 49’ers and the Sea-birds.
I’ll tell you – when I reflect back on the past two presidential elections it still amazes me that Obama got elected. I mean, he stood right in front of the camera’s and acknowledged what he was:
Gee – sounds like the American way, huh?
The ammunition supply situation is getting better and better. My local gun shop has everything…..and I mean everything -even .22LR. I was scared to ask how much they wanted for a box of Federal .22LR but they did have them.
Anyone have any experience with the Ruger LCP 9mm? I am seriously looking at getting one for concealed carry.
Although I live in South Carolina and the winter weather here is nothing compared to other parts of the country I have changed the supplies I keep in my Jeep. Lately it has been pretty cold dropping down into the 20’s. Would hate to get stuck on the side of the road at night and not have a few supplies with me to stay warm until help arrived. What if I had to walk home? Yup – good there. Sounds like a future post. 😉 Something to consider – seasons will change what is in your packs and kits.
QUESTION: Have any of you purchased and are using a “shed” as a retreat? I am talking either a single story or two-story shed that has been placed on a piece of land and set up as a retreat. If so – I would really like to hear from you. Please email me at emergencycd(at)gmail.com.
Hope everyone has a great week!!
