One of my goals for 2017 was to shoot every month. I’ve been destroying that goal as I have gone at least 6 times since January. Heading to my brothers this weekend and will definitely get some trigger time in.

Although not a strict preparedness item I had an issue with my glasses a few days ago. While driving to work one morning the left lens just fell out. Yup – I had a screw loose(no jokes!) and suddenly my vision was weird, to say the least. I pulled into a parking lot – and grabbed one of the THREE pairs of extra glasses I had in the Jeep. Yes – three. Two pairs of regular and one pair of sunglasses.

While most people have no backups I know just how valuable glasses are to me thus I keep extra’s around – just in case.

Have a great weekend everyone!!! Let’s hope Lightning doesn’t get completely covered in snow up in New York as it piles up!


There are many reasons why so many love their Kindle and Amazon Fire tablets. One huge advantage is you could literally go years without every buying a book to read as there are tons of free eBooks available. Don’t have a Kindle or Fire? No problem. There are apps that can be installed on most any cell phone or computer for free. No excuses!

NOTE: If you see a free preparedness eBook that you’re interested in get it now. Prices change often and there is no way to tell how long the book will remain free. Before purchasing a free Kindle book on Amazon make certain the book is still free by making sure the price is $0.00. If it lists a price or says “read for free” or has a price for prime members the book is not free anymore.
