“I’m a horrible shot but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night. So . . . ”
Good info. I’m looking forward to it.
See ya’ll there.
I took a class from him in the Ocala area a couple years ago. He gave away perennial cucumbers, tindora, at the end of class that I’m growing now at home.
One of the best things I learned from him was something he told the class somewhat as an aside.
Paraphrasing, he said, in a survival situation the first thing he is going to do is not eat…[Read more]
In the middle of an all night ruck. I’m also carrying a sandbag as “team weight” in this picture.
I did beekeeping for a few years and loved the hobby. I got out of it after I got stung in the ear (a bee got in my veil) and I had a terrible allergic reaction to it. The hospital visit for that was fun. “Sir, are you having any trouble breathing?” “Well, there’s a frog in my throat that isn’t usually there.”
I got my wife to continue to…[Read more]
Suggestions for ammo in 7.62×39 that meets the requirements above?
I did my 4th GORUCK event this weekend and my second in a month. I completed the Mogadishu Mile custom challenge in Tampa, FL.
I did a class a couple of years ago here in Florida where we had a pretty good thunderstorm on top of us for most of the day. I had packed my backpacking rain gear setup of a silnylon poncho in case of rain.
While out on the range the poncho was absolutely impossible to function with while operating a rifle and doing mag changes.
I will never…[Read more]
Reread about radiation protection. The three key points are mass, distance and time.
The inside of a medium or large house won’t cut it.
Yes, 48 hours after the event the radiation is 99% percent less than what it was.
But you need significant shielding if you are close to the blast to protect yourself such as 3 feet of dirt on all sides or 18…[Read more]
We’ve been reading again at home about improvised fallout shelters.
For us, location and finances don’t permit a property stocked fallout shelter currently, blah, blah, blah.
Probably just like you!
So we’re looking into what we can improvise or make minimal preparations towards that are reasonable and inexpensive.…[Read more]

I bought some all synthetic fitted boxer briefs made by Adidas on sale at TJ Maxx. I wear them rucking 2-3 times a week and on some longer events and they do perfectly.
I used to apply BodyGlide before rucking and while sometimes I still do as a preventative on longer events I don’t think it’s required.
My buddy prefers his ranger panties…[Read more]
I spent this past weekend working on land navigation. See the link in the above post It’s both simple to learn and really hard to get good at.
I’m going to keep working on these skills with a local orienteering club.
How are YOU working on these skills?
We do 8 miles every Saturday night with 30-50 lbs rucks and shoot for a time hack of under 2 hours.
I’ve gotten multiple MSS bivy sacks off of eBay over the years for around 35 bucks in Woodland in like, new condition.
I promise your bivy sack does not have to match your plate carrier. Or your socks.
I mentioned this on another forum and I’ll post it here as well.
Short notice however. It is this weekend.
FL-Intro To Land Navigation With Map & Compass
I’ve been using a pair of Merrell Moab Ventilator Mid’s for the past few months rucking and they’ve done good.
