From the Desk of John Rourke – July 26th, 2017


Time is flying by. Well over half the year is gone. I cannot begin to imagine what will happen the rest of the year(or next 5 years for that matter).

How important is it to know who may be a prepper in your area? How about a criminal? I have mentioned area intelligence – or community intelligence before. It is something I have been reading quite a bit on. Consider your retreat location. What if you failed to be aware of a “compound” 10 miles away from it. This compound is manned by 20+ people who have somewhat similar thoughts as yourself that some bad times are ahead. Is that important knowledge?

I think so.

Beyond the knowledge of the people themselves, understanding what resources are available and where they are at is important. Look around a bit. There are often solar panels in numerous locations. If there is a solar panel – I would almost guarantee there is a battery or batteries.

China is strengthening its military along the North Korean border. Possibly it is suspecting there will be some type of action against NK.

Safety Manager at work was throwing away medical supplies due to being expired. In particular, these were Triple Antibiotic Ointment individual foil packs. Of course, I scoffed them up.
