On the ride home from my boss’s office on Monday evening this week, I was thinking about the economy, and the ramifications of economic collapse.  I thought about how it would effect where I live in NJ today, and I thought about how it might effect my home town, a small town in rural Pennsylvania.

It’s true… I spent the weekend with a friend in AZ close to Fort Hauchuca.  Sierra Vista, AZ to be exact.  This is a friend I met when we were in the 6th grade in middle school.  We’ve known each other for about 27 years.  One of my oldest friends.  Now, to give you some color, […]

Land in a rural area for a Bug Out Location is romantic thought for me, and recently I have been looking at prices within a couple hour drive of where I live in an area that is the polar opposite of where I live.  I make some notes about a year ago around the prices […]

As I walk down the isles of my local supermarkets I still see full shelves of a wide variety of fresh good quality foods. And thankfully still […]

Mike Rowe On on Lamb Castration, PETA, and American Labor

I saw this on TheSurvivalistBlog.net yesterday, but only Part One was listed on the site.  I watched it, and this made so much sense to me I found parts one and two and wanted to share with you.  Mike Maloney discusses inflation, deflation, and more and quite probably pisses everyone in the conference room off, […]
