The focus of this blog is preparedness in a world of uncertainty–we do not know what is coming though some of us have guesses based on experience and the reading of history. If the predictions made in the late fifties, early sixties were accurate, I’d be hopping into a vehicle attached to a web that had supplanted the road and highway system and be whisked to the destination I had entered into the computer. (I would have to enter it via keyboard because of the fact that the voice programs do not recognise differences in modulation and pronunciation–tr: if you do not talk like the man on the six o’clock news, forget it.) In reality it did not work out the way Uncle Ludwig (von Drake) predicted–which is just as well because I really love my little pickup.
A little disclosure. T.S. Eliot described himself as “Anglo-Catholic in religion, classicist in literature and royalist in politics.” If only it were that simple. I believe in limited government which does no more than is necessary, avoids entangling alliances, and refrains from unnecessary military adventurism. I am a college graduate who managed to balance arts and sciences and to learn independent thinking. And I have been all over the political chart, but come back to the principles of liberty. free markets and distrust of power.
I will be writing on various topics related to probable scenarios, and possible prreparatipns for those scenarios. Beyond my education I have experience in carpentry, electricity, electronics, photography, teaching, law practice. administration, investigation and writing. I practice a modified Yang Style Taiji. I spent several years training scout leaders in leadership and outdoor skills. I counseled archery, first aid, pioneering and cooking merit badges. I shoot rifle and pistol–because of detached retina I may not shoot shotgun.
