From the Desk of John Rourke – July 11th, 2017


Gov. Chris Christie has received tremendous criticism over his sitting on a beach outside his house and how he has responded to the situation. While he may not have made the best decision the MSM exaggerated what took place. I kinda like how he just speaks his mind and tells it like it is.

Here’s a thought: How about the MSM report on REAL news that effects our lives and the future of this country?

Garden continues to produce well. A few more plants have died which they are swiftly added to the compost bin. Replanting several new cucumber and squash plants has been completed. The picture below shows several varieties of tomatoes.

AMAZON PRIME MEMBERS: If you have wanted to pick up a tablet for building a digital preparedness library the waiting is over. I just saw the Amazon Fire 7” tablet is only $29.99. This is a heck of a deal. Very limited time on sale.

If you are setting up a shooting range on your own property chicken wire strung between a couple posts make it very easy to mount targets. Throw some clothes pins up to hold the targets and you’re good to go.

Saw a thread on a FB survival group I frequent where someone was asking about bugging out to an island in the middle of a large lake. I guess that could be an option if the location was just right. How long to stay on the island would be a question. If the only supplies would be carried on the kayak or boat then long term might be considered weeks – at best.

Pre-stage supplies? Interesting thought.
