Bedford county, here we come!!!

After too many delays and setbacks, we have finally secured our mountain hideaway. we have been slowly building up supplies for it over the last 6 months, and this weekend we will start transferring everything.

The previous owners told us that they had left a lot of hand tools, which was a nice surprise since that is an area that I've sort of overlooked/ignored. Weapons and food are at what we think are comfortable levels, leaving us to focus on first aid and personal hygiene items.

Since seeds seem to be a tender subject lately, I might as well add my opinion. I don't place much value on seeds, we are not set up for for gardening and we have taken 5that into account as we added to our food supplies. Down the road we may add some raised beds, but that's a ways off from now.

Butler Gun Show

There is a show in Butler Sat & Sun @ the Days inn on Rt8. I think the times are 8-4 both days , but I could be wrong. If you got the time, you might as well get what's needed while you still can. Personally, I'll be looking for a deal on a comp m2 and magazines.See you there.

Happy New Year !!!!!!!!

All is well here in the south hills of the 'Burgh. I hope everyone has made progress in preparing for any catastrophe we may face in the near future.

I have been spending a lot of time getting our site "B" ready for us and extended family who will probably show up with almost nothing to contribute. I could rant all night about that, but let's just move on to something more positive.

The only area that I seem to be deficient in is our medical supplies and that should be fixed within the first few weeks on the new year.

Our new bug out retreat

We have been talking about getting a place in the mountains for quite sometime, and it now appears to happening in the very near future. It's located about 90 miles from our home so it should be reachable under most circumstances.

This goes against what I've been saying for awhile, I have been very adamant about staying at home, and using my in laws home as a secondary site because of the short distance to our home, they have a well, and for being pretty close to us they would be difficult to find by by anyone not familiar to the area.

It's going to be just like starting over again because I don't want to reduce supplies here at the house, but some stuff will have to be relocated. Weapons and fuel will be the first purchases. I keep 30 gallons of gas here at the house and will probably do the same at the new site. In a perfect world I would have another AR-15 stashed with 4000 rounds, but I think we may have look at less expensive choices.

Food and medical supplies will be the third and fourth priorities and they shouldn't be too hard. I'm always adding to the stockpile, so a few more things here and there will add up in no time.I like where I'm at with the meds so it's just going to be a matter of shuffling things around a bit.

Molle or Lbe

Everyone seems to lean one way or the other when it comes to tactical gear, and I'm finding myself unsure of what would work best.

I have used a molle chest rig and it wasn't too bad.The vest was comfortable to wear and it was easy getting in and out of vehicles.It held 8 mags for the bushmaster, but besides the armor plate, adding anything else would've made me feel a little top heavy.I tried to add a pistol mag pouch to the front, but I think that I'll keep them on my belt.

My govt. issue lbe has been a proven friend, but it also has drawbacks to it. The side mounted pouches tend to catch when getting out of a vehicle and even getting to something on your belt can be troubling when riding in a vehicle.

Sooner or later I guess I'll have to make a decision, but until then I'm going to keep both close by.
