  • Projects being worked on.
  • Thoughts on world events.
  • Recent purchases & recommendations
  • Current events related to politics, terrorism, crime – whatever.
  • Go on an adventure or have fun? Share it!
  • Whatever is on your mind….

My turn…..

Gen 5 Glock – while I have poked fun at Glock’s lack of innovation with their latest offering, upon further review looks like they have made some good improvements. I had a Gen 1 Glock years ago and loved it. It felt like an extension of my arm. Back then I shot at least every week.

Gas Shortage? I am not hearing any mention of an impending gas shortage, however, I am getting information from secondary sources. Several gas stations in my area were out today. Prices have certainly gone up and are expected to rise more.

New Radio – Picked up a QYT KT8900 Dual Band Ham Radio. This will serve as the radio for a “Commo Can” I am building. Basically a somewhat self-contained 2-meter ham radio with charge controller, antenna, and batteries. All will be in an ammo can. An external port will provide different charging methods including solar.  I’ve got the radio, charge controller, ammo can, and solar panel.

Hurricane Irma – Currently a Cat 3. The 5-day tracking projects a path pointing to the southeast United States. Still pretty far away.

Something for you…….

SURVIVAL TIP OF THE DAY: Always carry a Slim Jim with you. Never know when a buddy will lock his keys in his car.
