An Open Letter to The White Supremacists

Dear All of Y’all,You know if I’m talking to you.I’m crazy to stick my neck out like this and even address you.Most will likely disagree with me to say that I think society should have an open dialogue with you.Because you’re clearly unhappy, and we’ve got to live with you.And the consequences of your actions.So let’s have it out.First off, I wish there were no public square for us to fight over in the first place. Problem solved.If I want to take a statue down on my property, that’s my business. If you want to put a statue up on yours, that’s…

Summer Complacency

Todays topic was inspired by our buddy Commander Zero. He wrote about summer complacency recently and I have been meaning to do a post on the matter. First and foremost I think having our life focus be on something other than preparedness is a good thing. We should prepare to have peace of mind and protect what is important, not to have it dominate our lives. As I look at my journey in preparedness the times it was the biggest thing in my life I either had a void to fill or was focusing on preparedness to avoid unpleasant realities such as an unhappy failing marriage. Preparedness is a long term journey for most people. Like finances or fitness it is …

Living here vs there

When we left the big city, well more like the outskirts of the big city, we lived in a trailer park on the edge of Irving Texas, it felt more rural because right across the street was lots of industrial and empty land, but even so, this was in the middle of what we called the metroplex of Dallas and Fort Worth. We had all the usual utilities, electric, water, sewer, gas, phone, cable, trash pickup and the such. There were grocery stores and other major shopping within a very short mile or so driving distance. We had neighbors, lots of them very close by, there was no getting away from people. Living in this plethora of people, we had …

INTERVIEW: Gary Johnson for U.S. Senate in 2018? (Plus BONUS Content for THL Readers)

In a recent interview for IVN, Gary Johnson consultant Ron Nielson said Johnson “would be a fantastic senator” if he chose to run in 2018 against New Mexico’s Democratic junior senator, Martin Heinrich.When pressed on whether Johnson would consider making a bid for the U.S. Senate next year, Nielson had no comment, saying:“Well you’d have to ask Gary. I have no idea. No doubt that Gary would be a fantastic senator. He would do an amazing job and be great at that task. I have no idea if that would be of interest to him.” – Ron …

Realistic Emergencies- Money not Guns and Gear and Buckets O Food

Recently I had an emergency. I didn’t need my pocket rocket .380 or my trusty AR. Did not need buckets of rice and beans or body armor or night vision. Know what I needed, MONEY!Our friend commander zero talked about this recently, well more or less. http://www.commanderzero.com/?p=4234From losing jobs to surprise car repairs or medical problems or legal issues that require a lawyer the common denominator is these problems cost money. The way to solve them is with cash. Yes a bunch of food stashed is a good thing and can displace some expenses but good luck sending your landlord or bank 200 pounds of rice as payment!One of the blind failures in survivalism and its hipper…

Off-grid 5 acres well underway, looking for s.t.o. like minded partners!

Service-to-other oriented, looking for the same, for an off-grid 5 acre project.  Like minded people only!  No statists, pedos, service to self entities, or nut-jobs (including SJWs). I purchased 5 acres in 2011 of solid bush.  Since then I have cleared the land, built a driveway and yard site, garden areas, horse pasture, and installed a cistern.  I have also built a cabin which is not yet complete. The property is 1km from the 7th largest lake in BC, and only 2 hours from prime guide-outfitter territory.  So far I have done almost everything myself, and I am getting burnt out.  I …

Going old school batteries

The Achilles’ heel of every off gridder has got to be the battery bank. It is generally the most expensive part of the system, especially if you are going big, but for even those of us who run a small system, the batteries are the part that are the most problematic as well as expensive. I am hard on my batteries, I freely admit it, I run them down on a regular basis, I have gone though 3 sets of deep cycle batteries in 9 years. I have never had a large system, 2-4 batteries at most, fortunately we have never needed a large system, we run a few lights, radio, laptop, tablet, cell phone, router and internet antenna, a 12 volt …

Gary Johnson Is Returning to Politics

Gary Johnson, the two-term Republican governor of New Mexico and twice nominated Libertarian Party presidential contender, is making his return to politics this Summer after leading the Libertarian Party to a historic record high voter turnout of over 4 million votes in 2016.Johnson’s campaign more than quadrupled the highest vote total the Libertarian Party had ever received for a presidential nominee, while the Republican and Democratic Parties both stalled at a twenty-year low.That result was achieved with 1/1000th of the money the two major political parties spent.Gary Johnson issued a statement to the libertarian magazine Reason, in which he announced his plans to mobilize “the largest grassroots army of liberty activists” in the nation.Read the rest at The Independent

What bit me?

Being sick or injured is one of the things that you still have to deal with when living off grid. This summer we had a lot of insects, many of which bite or sting. Most of which aren’t really a problem, more a nuisance than anything else, but on occasion a tiny little bite can turn into something really nasty. This happened to me, I spend last weekend in bed with flu like symptoms, aching joints, headache, 0 energy, I couldn’t even walk up my hill without feeling exhausted. The reason? Something bit me. It happened while I slept, it wasn’t a painful bite, it apparently didn’t…
