So I am back from my prolonged absence and none to soon if you ask me. I took a few personal trips this summer and I am glad to be back. One of the trips was to help my Mom get prepped for her exodus from Kaliforniastan. In my travels I have never seen a more backwards state in my entire life. For instance; To get rid of a feral cat in Southern California you have to trap it and then wait on hold for 30 minutes to schedule a pick up which may or may not show up in 3 hours. Thats right folks, you have to catch your own animals which means that Cali is paying its animal control sixteen per hour to drive around and make pick ups only.
To make matters worse one of her neighbors called the Department of Health for the mess the feral cats made. So here I am trying to trap the cats, animal control is useless, and a very unfriendly neighbor is waging war with my mother. I will be so happy when she moves out of out there and is back in the U.S. proper.
It's weird that after I lost my job that all these other issues cropped up. Had I been employed I would be unable to devote much time to deal with them. I am not usually to preachy, but, God does have a plan for all of us and it is humbling to see it in action.
Speaking about plans; I plan to reduce the amount of posts from three times a week down to one. I have a number of family obligations coming up and that will keep me busy for most of the summer. I know I have a reloading article that I need to make good on and I have some thoughts on SHTF bunkering that might fly in the face of what others have preached as gospel.
Yes I am back but I might be busy here and there. I expect that in the coming months that it will be a busy time for most of the prepping community as well.
