Cardio Training Option

Not everyone has time and location suited for jogging off into the sunset, or hiking to a mountain base camp. They might not be able to afford a treadmill, or have the space for even a fold-up model if they did. But there is a tight space, full body cardio option for those with otherwise healthy joints and muscles – the jump rope.

I use a speed rope I picked up years ago, when I’m not assaulted by one or

Another FFL

Hehe, yes, this is a bait-n-switch. This post has nothing to do with Federal Firearms Licenses. In some of my philosophical discussions as pertains to prepping, I take a stand on actually having a life. Starbucks? Sure! Tasty treats, of course!

Ever see the movie “Mall Cop”?

The star was overweight, subject to black outs from hypoglycemia, to serious about his job, and a loser with the girls….

Go Take a Walk - Neighborhood RECON

Take a walk. Seriously. Go out and take a walk. Get out of your house, go into your neighborhood and walk. Aside from the exercise, it’ll give you a chance to do two other things.

Automated External Defibrillator (AED) – Your Own Defibrillator

You’re at your retreat. The world has not crashed, and you don’t think it will. Still you keep the place up to snuff because it also doubles as a great place to vacation, and triples as a second home if you lose your income and primary residence (the Three-fer rule….) While there on a vacation /maintenance trip, you experience a great pain in your chest and jaw, lose your balance and fall to the floor as your vision squeezes right
