I found this information interesting and felt it was worth passing on.  

Click the “Prepper Chicks”  image above to read a great article about the GRIDEX II exercise being conducted on November 13-14, 2013. 

“GridEx II will exercise NERC and industry crisis response plans and identify actionable improvement recommendations for plans, security programs, and skills. The scenario will build on lessons learned from GridEx 2011 and include both cyber-security and physical security components.”

Just like “nothing could happen” during these drills, because we humans ARE involved and because we ARE talking about mechanical devises that COULD fail…
would it not be wise to put a few supplies back “JUST IN CASE”?
Here’s an article about this exercise in the NYT as well.  Just click the image below.

Do you know how to spot the gun?

handgun

I carry a concealed handgun.  I go by the motto, “If you’re going to carry, carry all the time.”  I admit, it ain’t easy to do.  It’s easy to get complacent and I sometimes do not carry.

I’m always conscious if others can tell if I’m carrying.  Well, maybe not always. The more you carry the less you actually think about it.

On the odd occasion when I do venture out from my cave and into society, for my own curiosity I try to spot others who are carrying a handgun.  I’m no expert and consider it a challenge.

So far I haven’t been able to spot another person who has taken it upon themselves to be responsible for their own safety.  I’m sure they’re there.  Like I said, I’m far from being an expert at spotting the gun.

I’m not discouraged.  I will continue in my endeavor to spot another armed citizen.  It helps me to be aware of my surroundings and be on the lookout for danger.  I encourage you to do the same even if you choose to be an unarmed citizen.

What is a Fukushima?

fukushima

I find the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster a major concern.  I have no idea why it’s not being reported on in the media.

The governments standard operating procedure has always been to keep incidents under wraps in an attempt to control the outcome.  They do not want to alarm the public in an attempt to avoid a mass panic.  It would probably be bad to have the entire west coast panic and flee to the East.

If I lived on the west coast I’d be more concerned.  Since I don’t, my main concern is a disruption in the fragile “Just In Time” goods and services we’re accustomed to.

I’m re-posting the following article from the “Survival Preparedness Facebook Page.” 

Survival Preparedness

[SOMETHING TO PREP FOR] One Wrong Move at Fukushima Could Unleash a Nuclear Disaster Equivalent to 85 Chernobyls.

More than two years after a massive earthquake and tsunami devastated Japan, the Fukushima power plant sits in ruins, leaking 300 tons of contaminated water into the Pacific Ocean every day. But that’s small potatoes compared to what might happen in November.

In what could be humankind’s most dangerous moment since the Cuban Missile Crisis, TEPCO (Tokyo Electric Power Co). — the Japanese company that owns the Fukushima power plant — will attempt to remove approximately 1,300 fuel rods from the heavily damaged Reactor Unit 4. Why should you care? Because many experts feel that neither TEPCO nor Japan have the scientific, engineering or financial resources to handle the repair. And you know what happens if they screw up? Nuclear disaster.

We’re talking more than 15,000 times as much radiation as was released during the bombing of Hiroshima in WWII. That’s the equivalent of 85 Chernobyl disasters.

The explosion of Reactor Unit 4 would also be bad news for Americans. Nuclear dust would likely ride wind currents across the Pacific, bringing radiation to the West Coast of the U.S. Americans living there would be forced to remain indoors with their windows closed, according to Truth-Out.org.

But here’s the thing. Fukushima is littered with spent fuel assemblies submerged in unprotected pools. These assemblies are essentially clusters of rods containing spent nuclear fuel that remains highly radioactive. They’re just laying there in big puddles of water. If Reactor Unit 4 blows up during TEPCO’s attempted removal of the spent fuel rods, it’s entirely conceivable the blast could trigger an even larger explosion that engulfs all of Fukushima (including all those fuel assemblies, of which there are 11,000), leading to the release of nuclear contaminants on an unimaginable scale.

How bad would it be? One scientist, who lives in Boston, plans to move her family to the Southern Hemisphere (which is expected to receive much less radiation) if the Fukushima Doomsday scenario were to unfold. The exact implications aren’t clear, but we’re looking at a centuries-long spate of poisonous, nuclear materials, which would prompt mass evacuations throughout the Northern Hemisphere.

The Most Interesting Men.

There are men in this world who are extra-ordinary.  Men who are on their “Own Program”.

This rare breed of man lives outside of the so called main-stream society.

I consider myself extremely fortunate to have lived among this group of real life” most interesting men.”

MIM

These men have an exciting view on life that most do not.  If I could sum it up in one word, that word would be freedom.  Real  freedom. They have thrown off their societal chains and jumped off the escalator of life.  They are running freely through the station and enjoying every minute of it.

Are there more men such as this?  Yes…a lot more. However, our society stifles the adventurous spirit of young men today.

I often hear women say they can’t find a good man.  That’s because they aren’t here working 9-5 jobs in cubicles or an assembly line. The interesting men are on their adventure pushing their limit.  Living out on of a backpack in the open air and in some cases carrying a rifle through a war zone.

Author Chuck Palahniuk best describes the state of men in our society today in his book “Fight Club.”

“I see in the fight club the strongest and smartest men who’ve ever lived. I see all this potential and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables, slaves with white collars, advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need. We’re the middle children of the history man, no purpose or place, we have no Great war, no Great depression, our great war is a spiritual war, our great depression is our lives, we’ve been all raised by television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires and movie gods and rock stars, but we won’t and we’re slowly learning that fact. and we’re very, very pissed off.” 

I recommend you check out two such men of action and adventure.  And maybe, just maybe, you’ll get inspired enough to go on your own adventure.  Get on your own program.  After all, this is your life and it’s ending one minute at a time.

Be warned!  Well traveled,  seasoned men of adventure such as these have a sense of humor that will seem dark to the uninitiated and inexperienced.  It will be sure to violate the delicate sensibilities of certain persons.

A Post Apocalyptically Adjusted Romantic Life.

 

Only a fool underestimates a woman.  (I speak from vast experience)
It’s a grand mistake to call women the “weaker sex”.

My Lord!

Some women have harnessed their womanly charms and honed their seductive skills to expert precision.
Be warned young man.  History is littered with the gravestones of emperor’s who have fallen prey and lost their kingdoms and empires to the spells of seductive women such as this.
Ever hear the old saying that behind every accomplished man is a good woman? Well…if you look at history, you’ll also find that many a woman behind a great man, was also the demise of him.

king

Women throughout history have sold out their men to their enemies for personal gain. They’ve also just killed their man off by poisoning him.  Even in recent years you can see military generals and politicians having to step down from office or resign because of some “indiscretions” involving a woman.
Danger
Now please do not take this little bit of writing as a “dig” or “provocation” to womankind. I’m a fan of women.  I respect and admire these wonderful creatures. However, I’m not one to mistake their kindness for weakness.

It Can’t Happen To Me. The Active Shooter.

Can you be caught in the middle of an “Active Shooter” situation?  Yes.

Is it likely? No.

It’s still a smart thing to watch the above video put out by the DHS?  I say Yes.

These events rarely happen.  When they do happen, the media will cover these events for days on end.  It’s all you’ll hear about every minute of the day.  As the media waits for new updates to the unfolding situation they will fill air time by bringing on security experts to talk about what they don’t know and “speculate” on what they think is happening.  The media will ask the witnesses dumb questions like ” what did the shots sound like?” and the witness will say Pow! Pow! Pow!

I’ve given “Active Shooter” presentations to healthcare organizations before.  The main thing to remember is that “YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN” when the shooting starts.  The police are reactionary.  When seconds count, the police are minutes away.  It’s not the fault of the police.  That’s just just the way it’s set up.  They cannot be everywhere at once.

You have to do what you feel is best for you if you’re caught up in an active shooter situation.

I promote not hesitating on making the decision to get the hell out and away as fast as you can by any mean possible.  Break a window if you have to and make a run for it!

I write in my book about the many individuals living among us who are very unhappy and disgruntled about their station in life.  The most dangerous person is someone who feels like they have nothing left to lose.

You can be an Ass…if you’re an Asset!

You can be an Ass...if you're an Asset!

It’s a good policy to not be an ass. However, in a grid down society, having the skills, tools and knowledge to help rebuild and sustain a community puts you in the drivers seat of your destiny.
Being an asset makes you needed. Being a liability makes you a burden on others.
Human nature as it is, makes us not so fond of individuals who burden the rest of the community.  We as humans don’t look favorable on those who “take” and give nothing in return.
In a grid down environment, the welfare state will no longer exist. If you do not have skills, tools or knowledge that benefits the survival community you find yourself in, you are a liability. You are a burden.
Do a quick self evaluation. What value would you bring a community that is struggling to survive in an environment with out power?
If you cannot answer this question quickly, I suggest you read the “Post Apocalyptic Career” section of “The SHTF Art of War.”  It’s available for immediate download at Amazon.com
