The hurricanes that do real damage here have always come up out of the Gulf of Mexico, then the "remnants' come directly over us. That can wipe us out, as happened once around 15 years ago. This one shouldn't have a negative impact here with any luck.
This is a quarterly magazine, and costs $10.00 an issue. So you are paying twice as much per issue as you would be if you subscribed to American Survival Guide for the same period.
Survivor's Edge is primarily oriented towards fieldcraft and the outdoors. It's more "how to start a fire" than "how to store food long term." Les Stroud features in this magazine more than all the others combined, which is one reason I buy it. That, and boredom.
There was a post recently that discussed Bear Spray. Alternatives came up in the ensuing discussion. TooShooz mentioned Kimber pepper blaster. I had never heard of it, but this advertisement was the back cover of the latest Survivor's Edge. Everyone who is interested in guns knows Kimber's reputation for fine M1911A1 pistols. I am making the assumption that their self defense sprays are on the same level of the quality scale. I plan to buy three. They will doubtless be too expensive to expend in testing, so it may be awhile before I can say anything about them in terms of personal experience. Although the way things are going up where my son and daughter live, it may not be so long after all.
I am probably preaching to the choir here, but if you take perscription medicines be sure to shop around for the best price. I have been buying mine at the grocery store, which has a pharmacy and a bank. Recently the pharmacy there raised their prices, so I checked with a hole in the wall place on a back street. I can get my pills there for 3/4 of what I was paying the Ingles pharmacy even before they raised their prices.
Two news stories from Fox yesterday.
California is now trying to make illegal aliens eligible for "Obama Care". I guess we can pretty much write off California as part of Aztalan now. The Hispanics, legal and otherwise, seem to be running the place.
The second story concerned three Hispanics in Southern California who were out stealing Trump signs. They got into some woman's yard, she came out to stop them, and they beat her up. One of the neighbors filmed the whole thing (but didn't do anything else). I guess there wouldn't be much you could do about that out there. It would be racist to complain, since the woman was white. In fact, the news article on Fox Latino was titled "Hispanics beat White Woman." The tone of the article was that she asked for it by accosting the "Latinos." The video is on YouTube, but the sight of these scumbags beating up a young woman is too distasteful for me to post it.
Some cartoons to enliven an otherwise doldrum of a day.
