Well, something I NEED to do to prepare:

Was driving into the office this morning and was about 5 minutes away and Thud! Scraaaaaaaaaaaaaaape!  Sigh, that sounds like the muffler.  Sure enough, a bracket had rusted out and the whole back end was dragging.  I have zip ties and bungee cords.  Not the best option for a hot muffler.  So, crawled into work and thankfully the muffler survived the trip.  Pinged a couple buddies and we'll get it wired back into place.  (While wearing slacks and dress shirts no less.)

So, a roll of wire will now be included in my bucket o' supplies to have in the trunk of the car.

Baling wire was "duct tape" 100 years before duct tape was invented. 

Nothing wrong with using technology with that kind of track record.

yes, yes it was.  Got the muffler wired back into place.  I'll probably do a more permanent job using that galvanized pipe hanger stuff.  I'm sure the official bracket sold by Toyota to hold the muffler in place is at least $100...

Sunday I not only cleared and swept, but I successfully parked two whole cars in my two car garage.  This puts me in rarified air in this country.

Today I built and put the first coat of Varathane on my garage reloading bench.

I tried to post a photo here, but it is not working.  Go here for pictures:

Nice slideman!  A great sense of accomplishment.

I know plenty of folks with 3-stall garages AND a storage unit crammed full of crap.  Americans love their stuff...

El Presidente' declared September to be national preparation month. Stock up. Get ready. The Storm is coming.

Now he and Q are calling this month "Red October".

The Deep State has lost their grip on the levers of power. The people who unseated them took control of NSA and now warn, "We know EVERYTHING".  As in where all of the bodies are buried and who dunnit. This has created genuine fear and desperation in the monster that previously held all power in their hands. 

The flailing, the death throes, the big battle will be bloody. It has already started. Lamestream media, including Facebook and Twitter are inciting and instigating violence. The sheep are attacking in large flocks.  Return fire will be coming soon. 

As an aside, people who do not know what "sub-MOA" means should not pick fights with those who do.

The point I am making here is that RED OCTOBER quite likely will be bloody, messy and that your preps really should be reviewed and up to date.

You likely got it 75% correct.

Yes to that ... more or less, depending on requirements.

Precious metals, particularly gold and silver, are dramatically undervalued today. Smart people are buying. Fools are selling. 

- or -

Things and infrastructure that will be unobtainable in SHTF scenarios are more valuable that gold or silver even when their comparative valuation is $1,000 per ounce or WAY MORE.  If the commodity does not exist in your community, yet is important, no precious metal exchange can bring it in.

So we balance.

I am a seller at the wrong time.  BUT I am building things with materials and technology that will not be available after TEOTWAWKI.
