Trump – Bears Blame For Shutdown

Trump is a bad president.

Trump is nothing but ego and hatred.

I fear for our country if Trump is allowed to continue in his destructive, hate filled ways.

Save our country, let your representatives know they need to stand up to Trump.

Survival Day 16 (Rechargeable 520 Lumen Lithium Ion Waterproof LED Spotlight)

I’ve used my Rechargeable 520 Lumen Lithium Ion Waterproof LED Spotlight to do everything from spotting the turn off while driving through the mountains at night while looking for a buddies remote cabin to providing a spotlight while hiking through the rain on the Appalachian trail.

I normally keep my Spotlight in my garage so I can take it with me whenever I need to wander out into the night on unexpected trips. That means if a buddy calls me to go help him fix a broken down car at night or I just want to see how many deer are in my side yard, I know exactly where my Spotlight is.

I’ve taken my Spotlight out in the snow and rain, as well as out on the water when duck hunting. It is nice to be able to see what is in front of you while you are flying over the water in a Jon Boat trying to get to your hunting spot with enough time for the wildlife to forget you were there.

All in all, my Spotlight has served me well and I know it will when the zombie apocalypse starts as well. Guess what is going to go out the moment the apocalypse? That’s right, just about everything that is run on electricity, and I want to make sure that when I am popping the undead, I’m not unloading on my scared neighbors who came over in hopes of being saved.

  • Delivers up to 520 lumens with 5W ultra-bright LED

Bad Gun Handling – Broken Teeth

Guns are not toys.

If you treat something as powerful and dangerous as a firearm as a toy you are going to get hurt – or even worse you will hurt someone else nearby.

Handle every firearm as if it is loaded. Handle every firearm with care and handle it appropriately.

This guy is lucky all he got was a butt to the face.

Miracle On The Hudson – 10 Year Anniversary

I will always remember where I was that morning when Flight 1549 landed in the Hudson. I remember feeling happy that everyone survived, and more selfishly, lucky that I wasn’t aboard.

I travel a lot for work, and while the worst thing I’ve ever had happen on a plane involves another passenger with explosive diarrhea in a seat in front of me, I always get a little knot in my stomach when we are taking off or landing – because I read those are the most dangerous times of any flight. I always wonder if I had survived this if I’d ever got on a plane again?

I hope all the survivors are happy and safe today as the look back on the events of 10 years ago.

Survival Day 15 (Vehicle Snow Shovel)

It is snowing outside as I write this and I really could have used this Vehicle Snow Shovel today when I was leaving the range. My vehicle is a 4×4, but I got plowed in and it was enough that I almost didn’t make it out without damaging my truck. Guess what I just ordered for both my vehicles? You got it, I’m putting one of these Vehicle Snow Shovels in both our family vehicles.

Inspirational – Go After What You Want

It is such a simple concept. If you don’t try to go after your goals, you will never get a step closer to them, yet so many people struggle and give up because it is easier than trying and hitting a few bumps.

Those bumps are just how you know you are going in the right direction.
