Bug Out Bags

Bug Out Bag (BOB) or “Get Home Bag” DIY Checklist

When I was working, once monthly I would have to drive from fresno calif to lompoc california. Approximately 200 miles or slightly under. When I lost the account at lompoc I still had to drive to santa maria, about 30 minutes from lompoc.

So anyway, when I read the book Going Home by A.American, where an EMP hit the usofa, and he had to walk home 150 miles or so, I thought to myself that I should do something like that. Make a Get Home Bag, that is.

So I bought a large backpack and filled it with stuff I thought I could use to help me get home if shtf. I am extremely glad I didn't have to try walking home. My bones would probably be bleaching alongside some road over there.

A few years back I thought I was gonna have to use it to stay overnight in my truck when there was a bad storm over there and all the roads home were closed by the chp. Fortunately I was able to drive about 80 miles northwest and take another road back to fresno. Slow driving cause everyone else had the same idea.

Now that I am retired, I have thought about bug out bags. But, my wife has health issues, and frankly, bugging out is not gonna work for us. And if we did bug out, where we gonna go? There are so many people living in this valley and in this state, that just ain't gonna work. So we are going to bug in.

Earthquake and the house falls down? Livin in the back yard. 

UN troops walkin down my road? Gettin out the AK and going to work. 

As I said, buggin in, whatever the consequences.




Daily Whine 6-30-22

 Once again I find myself shaking my head in wonder at awesomeness of people. And also muttering incoherently under my breath.

I want to replace a window air conditioning unit in a small house my daughter lives in. The windows are casement style, so the ac unit has to be narrow to fit in the window.

When I bought this unit almost 20 years ago now, I went to home depot and picked it up right off the shelf, they kept them in stock.

Not now, uh uh. Now you have to go to their website and pick out what you want. Then you have to create an account so you can order the damn thing. There was supposed to be a guest option but I couldn't find it.

Anyway I ordered the thing at the help desk at home depot, and got my receipt.

They sent me an email that said it was shipped and would be delivered yesterday. Couple days ago that got changed to today. 

Checked my email just now and had an email that said delivery is delayed till tomorrow.

So I checked fedex for tracking, and they say it is on the fedex truck for delivery. But the tracking bar still says shipped, but not out for delivery. So I got no clue when it will get here.

Whine over.


Today is National Asteroid Day

 Other holidays and observances for June 30, 2022, include Leap Second Time Adjustment Day, National Bomb Pop Day, National Handshake Day, National Ice Cream Soda Day, National Organization for Women Day and National Outfit of the Day Day.

Why Not?

 Why don't we send a bunch of rednecks up to washington dc?

Find some who know how to play banjo and guitar, and have pairs of them walk up and down the sidewalk in front of the whore house and thte capitol building. 

Playing dueling banjos.

On loudspeakers.

Hell, if they had a box sitting there I would drop in a couple of bills.


 


 




Daily Whine 6-29-22

 Here we go again.

Why can't people and stores in this country quit trying to screw people out of money. No question mark, a statement of fact.

Went to dollar general for some items, got 2 sixpacks of the original vienna sausage. I love those things.

Walking around I saw folgers coffee for 8.95. In what looks to be about halfsize container of what they used to be. I think it had 24 oz.

Underneath that is maxwell house in a 24 oz container for 6.50. So I put one in the cart.

Go down another aisle and there is a shelf full of maxwell house coffee. In a 30.6 oz container for 6.50. So I put the 24 oz. one back and take this one. At the checkout it said 7.15 for the can. WTF?

The clerk goes and looks. One shelf had 30.6 oz cans of coffee for 6.50. The shelf under that had 30.65 oz cans of coffee. For what price? None listed. So I didn't get either one, they pissed me off. I told them it was misleading. The clerk said thank you, have a nice day.

Daily whine over. For now. Maybe.

A website for you to look at.

 Doom and Bloom

This is a link to a website I have perused before but I completely forgot about it. Until I surfed the net last night and ran across it again.

Lots of medical information there. As a matter of fact, after a quick perusal I kindof got overwhelmed.

They have a book called The Survival Medicine Handbook. 

I have it and I have partially completed it.

Anyway, something for you to peruse. Enjoy.

 




I Don't Look Good Naked Anymore

“The Stupid Police” This Page Shares People’s Dumbest Moments Online

I can attest to that.

 


Remember that asshole tom hanks in that movie with wilson the ball?
Where he stands dramatically and pounds his chest and says: I. Have Made Fire!

That's how I feel about my tomatoes. If I could only get radishes to grow I would make a video and do the happy dance.




My daily whine.

 The people in this country. I swear.

I stopped in at mcdonalds to grab a breakfast sandwich. I asked for the meal which is priced at $6.19. Then plus the damn sales tax at 8.7% and the bill should have come out to $6.73.

But it didn't. It came out to $7.02. 

I mean, that's only 29 cents, but it pissed me off. Because that isn't what I was expecting.

So I asked the lady why it was more. She then proceeded to not answer the question, and asked me what size coffee I wanted with the meal.

Whaddaya mean, what size coffee? I want what comes with the meal for $6.19.

You have a choice of small medium or large. I want what comes with the meal for $6.19.

You have a choice of small medium or large. I want what comes with the meal for $6.19.

What size coffee you want? Fuck it gimmee a small.

That will be $6.73.

I don't understand. If you are gonna have a menu with prices for a specific meal, why are you asking me what size coffe I want? I want what comes with the meal for that price. That's what I want.

But I guess that's not how it works anymore.

The Biggest Temper Tantrum In U.S. History Has Begun

 The Biggest Temper Tantrum In U.S. History Has Begun

While all of the jan. 6 people are being left to rot in jail, the police and others don't appear to want to arrest any of these crazed abortion fanatics.

If a few people with good shooting skills and a few long rifle deer guns were to post up at some of these prolife centers the abortion fanatics are terrorizing, this fanatical terrorism just might come to a halt.

None of them have to die, but if they got a few splinters from broken brick walls or broken glass flying  back at them, who would notice?

 


I am going to try and sharpen a chainsaw. Wish me luck.

 I put a new chainsaw chain on my electric saw yesterday. I chose my electric saw rather than gas because I didn't want to listen to the noise. Then I used it to saw in half a pretty heavy block of pecan wood that came from a tree I had taken out last year.

I have been loading the blocks of pecan wood trunk into my wheelbarrow and hauling them to my pickup, and then haul them home to my house. 

But this one piece of trunk was just too damn heavy to move by myself and at the time I had no one who could help. After it was cut in half I easily loaded it up.

So I got the saw and started sawing. And it was going pretty doggone good too. But about halfway thru I heard what sounded like metal hitting metal and then the speed of sawing decreased significantly. 

Never found any metal in the wood, but the chain was definitely not as sharp as it was.

Now, I have never sharpened a chainsaw chain before, so I looked up a video on youtube and thought I would share with you. 

And no, I am not going to video myself and the process. That would be embarrasing to watch a nekkid overweight man trying to sharpen a saw.


 



 



Maxine Waters is trying to stir up a race riot.

 Finger-wagging Maxine Waters rages as she rallies protesters in DC: ‘To hell with the Supreme Court!’

This black bitch is a representative of the people in our congress.

Why isn't she being arrested for stirring up an insurrection?

The ONLY way a country like ours can work is when all of the people respect the laws of our country. And the way our country works. You may not like the decisions, but you have to abide by them.

I remember that asshole g.w. bush didn't like a supreme court decision, I don't remember which one. He went on tv to explain why he didn't like it, but then he said: "We will abide by that decision." 

That's what we do. If you don't like it, work to change it in a peaceful manner. 

But now in our country that has all changed. So, maybe 2nd amendment supporters should just start carrying openly everywhere they go. Lets have some of our representatives and senators go on national tv and call for open carrying. And say if anyone doesn't like it, shoot em. 

Because we control our bodies.


Prepping Items

 I have started buying more stuff. Partly in an effort to beat inflation by having more tangible goods at lower prices than in the future, and partly just to have more stuff for teotwawki or shtf. Also just in case my finances take a turn for the worse.

Last week the lovely mrs. and I went to the local target and bought several hundred dollars of nonfood items.

Then I started thinking about gardening. So I ordered two more sets of seeds from amazon. I have 4 packages of them from last year. The seeds ordered this way are much less expensive than buying them individually. At least here locally they are.

My gas powered chainsaw has 4 spare chains I purchased last year. I am debating about purchasing another chainsaw of the same make and model. Any thoughts on that??

I have a 14" electric chainsaw I haven't used in a while, so I purchased two spare chains for that.

Last month I purchased quite a few handsqueeze flashlights. Squeeze the grip a few times and voila! You got light. Not very bright but you don't have to worry about running out of batteries. It's good enough to get around inside the home if your electric goes out. Especially if you got young eyes.

So, for the nonce that is what I am doing. Are you guys doing  any more prepping than usual?

Opinion

Roe V. Wade Won’t Stop The Red Wave From Republicans 

You know what they say don't you? Opinions are like assholes, everybody is one. Has one. Not is one.

I do not agree with the opinion expressed by this article. 

My personal opinion is that this court decision will invigorate the extremist democrat party. This will cause them to get out the vote in november, in one way or another.

I don't know if more ACTUAL people will get out and vote, but there WILL BE more democrat votes. 

I don't know how they will accomplish this. But they laid a pretty good foundation for cheating in the 2020 election. They got some good lessons on how to improve, how to not get caught, how to buy off more of the media. And especially how to make any JUDGES not give a crap if any of them DID get caught and brought to court.

Buy off more of the media so the democrap narrative gets spread more than usual.

I think they also know better how to buy off the rinos. Little lindsey graham seems to me like he's a cheap date. mitt romney can be easily had, although probably not cheaply. Cocaine mitch. Well, nuff said about him. But the point is republicans won't stop the dems in november. They don't have the balls.

And the ones who do have the balls are not enough in number to be effective.

And something else is going on. These stupid motherfuckers are getting ready to arrest President Trump. And if that happens, the democrats will come out in force. But maybe so will true americans. And then all bets are off.

Being a city council member has its perks.

 Fresno council members vote to increase their salaries

It's good to be king. Or at least high up there.

10 years ago a fresno city council member's annual salary was around 45 grand, give or take. I don't know the exact numbers. 

Then it went up to 60 grand or so.

Then 80 grand which is what it is now.

Now the city council has voted to raise their pay by 69%

That brings them up to about 130 grand or so. 

The average annual pay for fresno is about 55K.

Mymymymymy.

I think the summer just got hotter.

 POLITICS Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade, ending 50 years of federal abortion rights

Well. There has never been a RIGHT to an abortion. No matter what scotus said way back when.

My personal opinion about what this decision is going to cause is twofold.

One. There is going to be massive rioting this summer. Conservatives and christians will be attacked nonstop. 


Two. The so called redwave this coming november just got stopped in its tracks.

 



Around McLane in 1970

What happens if the trucks stop?

 A Warning About The Coming Shortages Of Diesel Fuel, Diesel Exhaust Fluid And Diesel Engine Oil

When the trucks stop, our economy, and potentially our lives, stop.

We all know that this bullshit is being orchestrated by the bidencrats. So what we gonna do about it.

Not much unfortunately. Unless the big red one finally kicks off across all 57 states and we can finally kill some damn democrats.

But I don't think that is ever going to happen. Unless these stupid cocksuckers pull a dianne feinstein and try to confiscate guns from Mr. and Mrs. America.

Here is a link to a story that covers that concept. The stealing of guns by our president.

So. What to do.

If you are in a rural or semirural area I suggest you start thinking about farming. But not farming in the traditional sense. Think amish and people who farm without gas or diesel driven machinery.

If you got 1 acre, 2 acres  or 25 acres start preparing your land to grow food you can trade or sell to your neighbors. Start a community garden. Find an old building and repurpose it to be a barter center. 

You know what might be good in a barter center or a general store? Seeds. Lots and lots of seeds.

Find an old building and start buying old machinery and putting in the building to have it to sell when shtf or teotwaki or the trucks just stop.

Find some old farm machinery and rebuild it so it can be pulled by animals. Then start doing that. Maybe just on  the weekends at first.

The point is these goddamn cocksuckers have got us maneuvered into a place where we might not be able to get out of. 

Maybe a little forethought will help with that. Just a thought.

Here's a movie line: I have to be careful what I shoot at?!

Well if this isn't a fine Howdoyado

Oil turbulence could last five years, ExxonMobil boss warns 

Well, geez louise. You ready to pay 85 to 150 bucks a week for gasoline to get back and forth to your work?

Does anyone out there know any of the 81 million voters? If you do, kindly give them a message from me.

Fuck off. 

Thank you.

2nd Amendment

 The Right to Self-Defense

The link above is from a blog called Not of this World

This article is about the 2nd Amendment. I agree with everything this author says.

One thing I might add to this though, is that the United States Constitution is the supreme law of the land. 

All debts contracted and engagements entered into, before the adoption of this Constitution, shall be as valid against the United States under this Constitution, as under the Confederation.

This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.

The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the members of the several state legislatures, and all executive and judicial officers, both of the United States and of the several states, shall be bound by oath or affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.

No laws of man can supersede this document. The 2nd Amendment is one of the bill of rights of that Constitution. And as such that makes ALL gun control, knife control, etc. control, laws unconstitutional. No matter what the supreme court says.

Here is a movie line for you: That is my word and as such is beyond contestation.

Here is another line: So shall it be written, so shall it be done.

Well This Can't Be Good.

 Un-American: Air Travel in the US Descends Into Chaos

5,000 flights cancelled over Memorial Day weekend: Industry expert blames worker and pilot shortages

10,000 flights apparently got cancelled over this last weekend. 5,000 flights got cancelled over memorial day weekend.

That kind of screws up your travel plans if you are on one of the cancelled flights. Got enough credit to rent a small car? How about paying for the gas for that car? Can you say $75 a fillup? And you got 600 miles to go?

Your wife is gonna get pregnant tomorrow and you want to be there for the event? Sorry, take another flight Tuesday.

Going to your parents house for their 50th wedding anniversary? Sorry, flight cancelled. What's a party anyway.

This is difficult for me to believe. This country excels at so much stuff and we used to excel at the airline level. They are blaming this on the weather. Oh, and maybe covid too.

The covid pandemic has a lot to do with this. But I think so does the general laziness of people these days. Especially democrats.



The Long Riders (6/11) Movie CLIP - On Your Way to Hell (1980) HD


When in the course of human events, you happen to be treated wrong, this shows how to deal with those people.

An advertisement I keep seeing.

 600 Watt 24 Volt Monocrystalline Solar Panel Kit w/ 40A MPPT Charge Controller

At least 60% of the webpages I visit have the advertisement I just placed a link to above. This seems like a very good price for 600 watts of solar panel and associated charge controller.

With this setup you will need two more things. You will need a battery system and a pure sine wave inverter.

With these items you can power a fridge, or a freezer. You can run your computer setup, or a tv system. You can power a shitload of lights if you want. 

Or not. 

But as I've said before, I believe you should consider making at least part of your own electricity. 

Another reason I don't like nuclear power

Chuck Norris is the reason why Waldo is hiding.



A man called to testify at the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), asked his accountant for advice on what to wear.
"Wear your shabbiest clothing. Let him think you are a pauper," the accountant replied.

Then he asked his lawyer the same question, but got the opposite advice. "Do not let them intimidate you. Wear your most elegant suit and tie."
Confused, the man went to his Priest, told him of the conflicting advice, and requested some resolution of the dilemma."Let me tell you a story," replied the Priest.
"A woman, about to be married, asked her mother what to wear on her wedding night. 'Wear a heavy, long, flannel nightgown that goes right up to your neck.' But when she asked her best friend, she got conflicting advice. Wear your most sexy negligee, with a V neck right down to your navel."
The man protested: "What does all this have to do with my problem with the IRS?!"
"Simple", replied the Priest...
"It doesn't matter what you wear, you are going to get screwed!"

Gun question

 In a shtf situation where you may have to travel with a long gun for safety, what is the best way to have that long gun laid out in the truck?

I am currently reading another post apocalytic fiction short novel, and the author has the characters placing the muzzle of the gun in the floor for quick access.

I am not sure that works for me. Seems to me the muzzle should be  pointed up so that when you grab it the muzzle can then easily be pointed right or left.

Any pros out there who can chime in to let me know the best way to do that?

 






I am tired.

 I have let myself get too far out of shape.

I know it has been getting hotter lately, but i should be able to work more than two hours at a time before getting winded and unable to work.

My granddaughter Calliope helped me this morning. We drained a swamp cooler to let it dry out so we can spray some coating in the pan. We also went to the hardware store to buy some new cooler pads. Holy crap those things have gone up in price. A single 28" by 28" cooler pad was $10. I needed four.

She helped me get them off the roof so we could throw away the old pads much easier, as they were disintegrated. Then we installed the new pads and carried them back up to the roof. The pan should be dry by tomorrow and we can spray coat it. Also gonna have to redo the drain. 

While at the hardware store I looked at casement window operators. Again HOLY CRAP those things have gone up in price. They are $22 each! And I need ten of them.

After we got the cooler part done, Calliope walked home to her house which is right next door and I drove home. Where I promply laid down on the couch and slept for two hours.

Looming Recession My Sweet Ass

 A Survey Of Corporate Financial Officers Found That 100 Percent Of Them Expect A Recession To Start In The Months Ahead

Looming recession my ass, it's already here.

recession, in economics, a downward trend in the business cycle characterized by a decline in production and employment, which in turn causes the incomes and spending of households to decline. Even though not all households and businesses experience actual declines in income, their expectations about the future become less certain during a recession and cause them to delay making large purchases or investments.

Good Morning

 This is borrowed from The Feral Irishman

Why Grandpas are better...

 Have you ever wondered what the difference is

between Grandmothers and Grandfathers

 

Well, here it is:

 

There was this loving grandfather who always made a

special effort to spend time with his son's family

on weekends. Every Saturday morning he would take

his 5-year-old granddaughter out for a drive in the

car for some quality time -- pancakes, ice cream,

candy -- just him and his granddaughter.

 

One particular Saturday, however, he had a terrible

cold and could not get out of bed. He knew his

granddaughter always looked forward to their drives

and would be very disappointed.

 

Luckily, his wife came to the rescue and said that

she would take their granddaughter for her weekly

drive and breakfast.

 

When they returned, the little girl anxiously ran

upstairs to see her grandfather who was still in

bed. "Well, did you enjoy your ride with grandma?"

he asked.

 

"Not really, Pa Pa, it was boring. We didn't see a

single asshole, queer, piece of shit, horse's ass,

socialist left wing Biden lover, blind bastard, dip

shit, Muslim camel humper, pecker head or son of a

bitch anywhere we went. We just drove around and

Grandma smiled at everyone she saw. I really didn't

have any fun.”
