I drive quite a bit for my job, it doesn’t bother me much as I listen to audio books or jam out to “best of the 80′s” sound tracks on sat radio.  I also like the time alone and the fact that I usually get to pick and choose when and where I want to …

A chat with a *REAL* Prepper

Recently my friend made the 4 hour trek to come hang out with me for the weekend.  We expended quite a bit a ammunition, talked about preps, 3-5 year plans and tipped back a few adult beverages.  I found ironic that when the topic of current events came up, he was rather clueless.  I brought …

Say what you want about his personal life, maybe you don’t give a rat’s a$$ about him…maybe you have heard he was a godless person and for that you could care less.  All I know is this, he spent lots of time bringing smiles to that faces of countless men and women in uniform and …
