    I have been slowly collecting medical stuff. I want a better trauma kit for home and vehicle. SO I read, then buy one component after I know what I want.

    I have also killed a gun case the other day. So I bought a Pelican 1650 and I am working on the layout. Living in the city, Using indoor ranges makes unique challenges. Life was easier in the country where I could pull a gun out and shoot it vs. spending hours packing traveling, and then I may get 1 hour of shooting.

    Baked another round of hardtack. Order chest compression bandages. Made inquiry for a coach at the local archery range to check my equipment. Haven't shot since 1984.

    Been studying on trying an aeroponic setup for lettuce, to start with, see if I want to go on with tomatoes that way.
    I have most of the raw materials to build one already available.

    Have a class later today with a bowman.

    Eclectic orders this week: toilet seat for 5 gallon container; two chest compression bandages, strong wire within a plastic sheath (trip wires, etc.), a couple of outdoor motion detectors (one didn't work and no response from the distributor on how to fix - so one was charged back).

    Looking for a new job. Does anyone need a CISSP, CISA, CRISC, IT Security, Risk Management, Audit management person?

    Have most of my updated med kit, but haven't put it together.
    Upgraded the interior lights in the vehicle.
    Went shooting. I am pretty decent at this point.
    Updated some clothes.
    Bought a pile of alcohol. I am compiling tasting notes.
    I have been working on deciding on SHTF writing instruments.

    Yet here you are perpetuating the cycle???? ;)

    I like to read them as they make me think about my priorities as opposed to the things I like to do or want to do.

    We have been going like gang busters experimenting in the garden, I am trying to retire and have more time for these types of things. I have bought a few more guns, some ammo and caught a mountain house sale on Sportsmansguide.com . I am waiting on new gutters to put in my water catchment system.

    Shot pistol and rifle this week, and last Sunday I got to use a 1912 Winchester on some clay pigeons. Was consuming enough ammo already- now I've done it!

    Why? You know you don't have to post or subscribe.

    It gives me ideas of things I need to do and allows me to see what others are doing.

    Bought ammo to replace what I shot. This is an expensive habit.
    Organization, organization, organization.

    Bought a better dolly to get my stuff to and from the range. It could also be better when I move. I am kind of amazed at the different dollies and how one doesn't work for everything.

    OH, yea, exercised, exercised, exercised and I am still out of shape.

    I don't think it has to go like you think. I read a lot of your posts and mostly agree and enjoy them. I am curious as to what about these threads in specific are so unsettling to you. If someone chimes in with childishness, I think we can both get past it.

    I am 150 miles from the latest 6.4 and 7.1 quake. I am set up better than most as far as provisions and supplies.

    But after yesterday it was time to revisit supplies and storages. Get fresh fuel in gas cans and make sure all vehicles topped off. I have plastic 3 gallons water container bags that stay empty for easy storage until I need them those came out yesterday. We have other water containers always filled. I did have to replace a propane tank that ran out on 4th July but always have one full for backup.

    Who is forcing you to read this?

    This forum is largely dead anyway the last few years, anything that can generate some posts is welcome in my book.

    as I said previously, these kinds of posts historically become drivel. Its simply not what I would call "good curb appeal". I was not making the request to spare me of anything. I made the request in a effort to avoid what I expect will soon become a pointless 20 page thread at the top of the forum
