From the Desk of John Rourke – September 15th, 2017


A local gun shop asked me about a partnership to bring preparedness supplies and information to their customer. The place is very big and similar to a small Bass Pro Shop. While this may seem like a great opportunity – I’m extremely busy. Not to be selfish but if I don’t get something out of it there are other things I could do with my time. Putting on group seminars and bringing in business will certainly benefit them. I may work up a proposal and see if they are interested. Barter would be acceptable.

This seems to be getting fairly routine: North Korea fires another missile and makes threats. This launch had another missile fly over Japan with a quick reaction from the Japanese government. I can only imagine the reaction should an impact – even without any detonation – occur on Japanese soil.

With the rampant water shortages in Texas and Florida simple tools like the Water Bob would be HUGE to have. A couple tubs in the house could result in storage 200 gallons or so of water.

Continuing to collect parts to build my Commo Can. Basically, a 2-meter ham radio, power supply, antenna, etc all contained in a 50-cal ammo can. Hope to complete in a couple weeks.

Similiar to this……

Have a great weekend everyone.

Keep those in Texas and in Florida in your thoughts and prayers.
