New Blog!

Hi, everyone, I’ve been working on a special little project: a story blog! Basically, I’m writing a collection of posts that form a story, or a novel of sorts in blog form.  Look for Copperhead Militia, you’ll find it. Not sure if I can post the link, as this is a freebie blog and I got in trouble for that already. Hope you like, tell me how I’m doing!

Boots

Everyone here knows the importance of a good pair of boots. The type of boots doesn’t matter, as everyone has their favorite. The main thing is finding the type of boots you like that are of good quality and preferably cheap. We all know that in a long term SHTF situation that boots will become worth more than gold. Even good quality boots will wear out relatively quick with all the hard work you will have to do to survive a post collapse world, so it makes sense to stock up on boots now, right?

My favorite style of boots are the military combat boots because they are rugged, reliable, comfy, and have awesome ankle support. Most of the time I wear an old pair of hand me down jungle boots. Unfortunately, one of them flap-jacked on me. I refuse to throw them away because the treads are still great, so I duct taped the toe shut. For chores outside in the winter, I have a $30 pair of Gortex lined combat boots of good quality that I had found at a gun show. I also own a pair each of black and white mickeys. I have an undisclosed amount of boots that I will refer to as my ‘extra pair’.

I rarely buy a pair of boots at full cost. I find them cheap at gun shows, army surplus stores, and ebay. I once found a pair of size 10 combat boots in decent shape at a salvation army store. They were were super cheap and not in bad shape. The only bad part was that I’m a size 7, not a 10. I’ve gotten so cheap that I refuse to pay more than 30 bucks for good quality boots anymore because I’ve been blessed with that ‘extra pair’.

To get rid of any little nasties, spray a water and bleach solution into the inside. That should kill anything like fungi or bacteria. Don’t forget to break in you boots before storing them. If you have to run and grab a pair on the fly, you want them pre-broke. Lol, I shouldn’t have to tell anyone here to keep them oiled. In fact, boot oil and extra laces should also be on your stock up list.

As always, may God grant you all peace.

Raiding The MORP

This is for entertainment purposes only. Please do not actually try this. I hate disclaimers to, but I don’t want to get in trouble.

MORPs, or ‘mobile organic resupply pods’ and best known as ‘zombies’. In the event of a major catastrophe in which the rule of law has completely disappeared and supplies could be hard to get, raiding MORPs will be the next best thing. And they’ll often come right to you, trying to steal what you have, so you won’t have to go very far. All you have to do is be smarter than they are, and as far as I know, the average zombie often doesn’t have two brain cells to rub together. At least, none of the zombies I know personally. However, some MORPs may have tactical training, so be careful. It is relevant to note that in the event of a foreign invasion, the enemy MORPs will have better training and better logistics that most of us American patriots, but that is a different ball game.

Say a gang of maybe 30 zombies are headed your way and refugees are able to tell the general direction in which they are coming from. You can then scout the zombies and formulate a good plan to get them before the arrive at your doorstep. Know your area of operations. Is there an area that you can funnel them into? Do you have good ambush points? Once your plan is formed, tweaked, and executed, then we can get to the business as mentioned in the title. Raiding dead zombies may be disturbing to some, but considering the fact that they will have things you need, toughen up. Remember, the zombies tried to kill you first. Don’t go for just the guns, ammo, and weaponry, take everything. Blood washes off, material can be disinfected from the zombie infection virus. Boots will be at a premium SHTF. Even if they don’t fit you, they can be bartered for things you need. Good heavy coats, gold and silver jewelry (wedding rings), decent jeans, even food and glasses can be salvaged. Remember, your first responsibility is to yourself, your family, and your group. Do everything you can to take care of them.

May God grant you peace and that things never get this bad.

Now ain’t this the truth! Good job irbi2076!

My heart truly goes out to the families of the victims in Connecticut. If you turn on most of the corporate mass media this evening you won’t find many of the answers either. The truth is that we now live in a world that is morally bankrupt and spiritually broken. Evil has and is continuing to permeate into our culture. Events like this will continue to happen until we learn to respect the value of life, liberty, and property rights. It goes way deeper than banning guns or even limiting access to certain guns. Death and destruction have become common in our society. I think we need to engage in deeper and more meaningful discussions on the bigger picture issues. I actually could not take it any more so I turned off the TV. Try not to listen to the propaganda from the media elites who have already politicized this…

My Introduction

Hello all. I am a young woman from rural Ohio and I wish to share my experiences with you as I journey down the road of self-reliance. I am no expert in any subject, however I am willing to share what I’ve learned and learn more myself. I have lived off grid for, all totalled, about twelve years. I live with my parents and together we do our best to live closer and closer to the land. We heat with wood, use solar power as much as we can, had our first serious veggie garden this year, and use a composting toilette system. I have helped raise goats and chickens for many years and have a small amount of experience with horses. I have been learning as much herbology as I can as I can. With this country’s economy in total chaos and natural disasters on the rise, I believe that it is prudent to learn the old arts to preserve ourselves and our freedom. I am a Messianic Christian, devoted 100% to YHVH God and His son, Yeshua Jesus. I invite you to fellowship with me on this blog as we prepare to tackle the dark times ahead. May God give you peace.
