Hello, I am A 50 Something, Prepper ;-}; former 60's Flower Child, don't believe in taxpayer subsidized special interest groups (political parties), DO believe in the Constitution and Bill of Rights (1st 10). Long time Independent & Informed Voter. Lover of the outdoors and firm believer that History Teaches - if only we will listen!

(No longer Urban or in NM. Now Rural in the mountains of Maine.)

This blog was started at the request of some dear friends that wish to become Preppers.

“No man who is not willing to help himself has any right to apply to his friends, or to the gods.”

Demosthenes (384–322 BC, Greek statesman and orator of ancient Athens)

The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they suppress. ~ Frederick Douglas

Control oil and you control nations; control food and you control the people. Kissinger

Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it’s time to pause and reflect on your position. ~ Mark Twain
