    Solar storm a serious threat around 2012

    Are you ready for chaos to come out of seemingly nowhere? Do you have a 30/60/90 day reserve of survival gear and food? And, can you defend your "stuff" when the "feces hits the fan?" Sure you live in a most peaceful place now and you feel it couldn't happen where you live, but what if . . .watch the short video below. . .just food for thought.

    I have a 55 gallon drum of SPF 3500 sunscreen. Will that help?

    what is that? paint?




    I know a few people that are the "survivalist" type. That is a bit much even for me.... I keep a 3 day BOB ready. If I need more I can ration what I have in the house until I can find supplies. Keeping a well stocked pantry is a good thing even if it isn't for planning for Armageddon.

    Bottled water, sardines, Ramen, rice, tuna, jerky, chipped beef, and even coffee. The water is a must but pick a starch and a meat source to maintain strength so you can catch real food.
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    These sorts of headlines about solar flares and dire predictions related to them, crop up with amazing regularity through the years. We are still here.

    Hmm...so I should invest in solar cells and batteries and mass produce my own power to sell to the pitiful masses that were too stupid to capitalize on the opportunity?

    Yeah, and where's Y2K with the planet going back to the dark ages? But again, you never know.

    EVERYBODY should have a minimum of 3 days EXTRA food & water on hand for every member of the household.

    I have gone quite a bit beyond that.

    I would suggest that folks pick their poison and prepare.
    Because whatever it is that's a comin' - it ain't going to be good.

    Folks say "We're not out of the woods yet."

    Trust me...we haven't even gone INTO the woods yet.

    I do have a good 30" well. I also have a bucket and rope. As for food, we have several days of canned goods. What's in the freezer would keep for a day or two. Besides that, there are fish in my pond and plenty of squirrels, rabbits and deer in my woods.

    I've been prepared for many disasters. We have a bug out or in bag and extra supplies to last us about 2 weeks and in the next 6 months, I'm increasing that duration to 2 months if all goes to plan.

    The ozone layers should block out most of the harmful rays. It's our space-born telecommunications that will bear the brunt of the sunspots' emissions.
