The MSM is lying to us. Ebola CAN be airborne. Granted, not like the flu. But are you ready to take the chance ? Ebola WILL make its way to America. Just a question of when, and to what degree it will spread. My wife and I had a discussion about this recently. Take into consider the Panic that will ensue after a couple of kids show up at school with it. Or somewhere else around town. Keep in mind... Ebola is a virus not a bacteria. Most disinfectants / antibiotics will not work on a virus. People will freak and pull their kids out of school and leave their jobs, etc. SHTF. We just went back to Orange alert here.

A CDC advisory entitled Interim Guidance about Ebola Virus Infection for Airline Flight Crews, Cleaning Personnel, and Cargo Personnel reveals that the federal agency is concerned about airborne contamination. The advisory urges airline staff to provide surgical masks to potential Ebola victims in order “to reduce the number of droplets expelled into the air by talking, sneezing, or coughing.” (emphasis mine). The CDC is also directing airline cleaning personnel to, “not use compressed air, which might spread infectious material through the air.” (emphasis mine). The CDC’s concern about the Ebola virus being spread via the air is understandable in light of a 2012 experiment conducted by Canadian scientists which proved that, “the ebola virus could be transmitted by air between species.” Researchers demonstrated that the virus could be transmitted from pigs to monkeys without any direct contact by placing the two animals in pens separated only by a wire barrier. After eight days, some of the monkeys were found to have symptoms of Ebola likely as a result of “inhaling large aerosol droplets produced from the respiratory tracts of the pigs.” The results of the study led scientists to conclude that, “limited airborne transmission might be contributing to the spread of the disease in some parts of Africa,” although they cautioned against making comparisons to the airborne nature of the influenza virus. In addition, the Public Health Agency of Canada’s official website states under a section entitled “mode of transmission,” that “airborne spread among humans is strongly suspected, although it has not yet been conclusively demonstrated.” (source) - See more at:

Alternate Refrigeration Options

We all agree electricity is gonna be a problem when SHTF. OK, most of us have generators. But running a freezer or fridge alot with one is not really feasible. And a fuel waste. Propane is a more cost effective alternate. Most all RV are so equipted. If you don`t own one... you might be able to salvage one at some point in time or buy one now. A Heated Refrigerator? You may not realize it, but modern refrigerators don't only cool things down, they keep things from getting too cold. Yes, you guessed it: refrigerators have onboard heaters. They're low-wattage, but refrigerator heaters are very convenient and effective at doing everything from heating the evaporator coils to melt any accumulated frost, to keeping the butter chilled but not so cold that you'll need a chain saw to cut through it. Gas and Propane Refrigerators If you own an RV, chances are you have a gas- or propane-powered refrigerator. These refrigerators are interesting because they have no moving parts and use gas or propane as their primary energy source. Also, they use heat to produce the cold inside the refrigerator. A gas refrigerator uses ammonia as the coolant, and water, ammonia and hydrogen gas to create a continuous cycle for the ammonia. The refrigerator has five main parts: Generator - creates ammonia gas Separator - separates the ammonia gas from water Condenser - where hot ammonia gas is cooled and condensed to create liquid ammonia Evaporator - where liquid ammonia converts to a gas to create cold temperatures inside the refrigerator Absorber - absorbs the ammonia gas in water It works like this: Heat is applied to the ammonia and water solution in the generator. (The heat comes from burning gas, propane or kerosene.) As the mixture reaches the boiling point of ammonia, it flows into the separator. Ammonia gas flows upward into the condenser, dissipates heat and converts back to a liquid. The liquid ammonia makes its way to the evaporator where it mixes with hydrogen gas and evaporates, producing cold temperatures inside the refrigerator's cold box. The ammonia and hydrogen gases flow to the absorber where the water collected in the separator in step No. 2 mixes with the ammonia and hydrogen gases. The ammonia forms a solution with the water and releases the hydrogen gas, which flows back to the evaporator. The ammonia-and-water solution flows toward the generator to repeat the cycle.

If You Dont Stand for Something... You Will Fall For Anything

I took this statement off a good friend of mines Facebook. He IS the duely elected Sheriff of the county next to where I live.
I am reluctant to publish his name or the County where he is sheriff, although he did post it on Facebook.
I have seen other officials ( around the country ), proclaiming their similar opinions in the media.
I think it`s time we all took a stand. I wonder if there are any other officials around that have the guts ????
And I Quote....

 " I have had several people in _______ Co. come to me and ask how I felt about the new executive orders that the president might try to implement to go around the 2nd Amendment....As long as I am Sheriff of this county, no one, and I mean no one is going to come here and take away anyone's guns...I will do everything in my power to stop that and to keep the 2nd Amendment intact. Its not about guns here, its about taking away your rights and as your Sheriff I am bound by my oath to protect you and your rights and if that is to bear arms then I will stand and fight...I will live up to my oath and that is a promise to everyone that lives in ______ Co."!!!

GOD Bless America, Y`all.

Will You ?

         I " borrowed " this from a good friend of mine, Winfield Davenport. I agree totally.

"I know I'm a gun nut and I absolutely believe in my Second Amendment rights to own firearms (and I do mean plural). I also teach CHL classes and 4-H classes on firearms. And I'm probably not going to make a lot of friends by saying this but I think it needs to be said. I don't think that arming teachers is going to prevent another Sandy Hook ...incident from occurring any more than I think that stricter gun control is going to prevent it from happening. Now don't get me wrong I don't think it's a bad idea and I believe it could save lives but it still won't prevent it from happening.

I believe that this type of thing happens because we as a society have failed to make a difference in people's lives. It's a small world out there and many of us are only a few people removed from that young man who gunned down those children. We all know the power of words and it only takes a few words to tear someone down where as it takes a lot of words to build them up.

What I'm trying to say is that neither more guns or less guns will prevent a tragedy like this from ever happening again but the right person being in the life of next gunman can and I believe that each and everyone of us can be that person.

Will you be that RIGHT PERSON ? "

GOD Bless America, Y`all

Signs of the Times

This 50 bed nursing home, opened in 2005. It was a 4.5 million dollar project, and operated until 2011when it went belly up. Bankruptcy.
It was offered for sale today on the courthouse steps for a little over $600,000.
NO takers.
This is a fully functional facility. Beautifully built and decorated.
Something is wrong when a 4 million dollar building won`t bring $600,000.
I call it ObamaCarephobia.

GOD Bless America Y`all.

Hunker Down or Bug Out ?

A friend over at Desert Rat Preppers -  - had a post that got me to thinking. I had always thought we would hunker down  and stand our ground here. All my prepping has been formulated around this idea. We are very rural, resources are available ( wood, water, game, etc ). We have enough supplies for 1-2 years , depending how many non-prepper family show up. So, it would be a Have To situation for us to bug out....but...
 We could not take even 1/10 of our supplies with us. Any travel would have drawbacks. And... where would we go we that would be better off ?
 What would cause us to have to bug out ? Over run by bandits ? Fire burns house, tornado , chemical or biological events ?Anything can happen.
We should all at least have some sort of plan.
Keep in mind, TIME might be a factor.
Prioritize what and how much you are able to take.
Have it ready to load. Boxed up or packaged for loading and transport.
Have plans on where to go, and how to get there.

Have an understanding ,with family and your group, on what your plan A,B, and C are.
Every situation is different. Only you can formulate a plan for you. But have some kind of plan. That`s what prepping is.

GOD Bless America, Y`all.

Distant Drums

Listen.... Can you hear them ? The rumblings in the distance ?  War drums ?  Bombs ?  Or God, groaning, at our folly ? 
The Mid East is a total disaster. And is only getting worse. How long before Israel attacks Iran ? Who is really in control of Syria, Egypt, Lybia, and so on. That part of the world is a powder keg with a short fuse.
There are massive troop and weapon movements in that part of the world. Alot going on in Israel. And more that we don`t even know about. ( China just launched it`s first aircraft carrier. China is aligned with Iran for sure ).

 I was always Pre-Trib in the past... But what if the Mid-Tribers are right ? What if the Rapture is what starts the Great Tribulation ? What if we are already in the first part of the Tribulation ?  Remember, the prophecy was written about/for the Israelites and people in that part of the world... NOT America.  ( We tend to put Gods word in perspective from our viewpoint. Only natural ).
I continue to prep because I don`t know. I think possibly we are going to go thru some hard times either way.
If you are reading this, you are probably a prepper, and have prepared for your needs. Food, fuel, water, etc.
It is my prayer that you have prepared you eternal soul for the times to come. I believe the Trumpet could blow at any moment from here on out.  

 God Bless and Keep You.
