Nah, I dont drink too much, just the occasional victory drink.
Though, I do think that if I get enough of the portable showers I found at cabelas. Just need a way to get the water back out... Hmmm

Edit: I see what you did there...

made some more headway in the barn... got to where i keep my tarps and tents, stake downs, rope, etc. got rid of about 4 pup tents and 2 domes... or at least i have them put where they will go to nieces and nephews for the camping they do..only this time they will keep them, i'm won't store them any more. i kept the 1 nice 2 man dome, and a bigger 2 room tent along with all my nasa tarps i had...lightweight and heat reflective. found my nylon ropes and paracord too. although i really think now my first option is going to be to stick it out here, and only bug out if it is imperitive or a life threatening situation. i do have a couple of locations ( properties with caves on them ) about 200 miles south, along with some family and contacts ... but i would be hard pressed to just take off unless it were simply the only viable option left. i would either have to be alone; which means no one else made it, or at least made it here, or i was over run.

one of my top priorities for this whole dec 21st thing for me, .... was me ... i had to drop a few pounds and get back into shape enough that if it were necessary, i could handle the rigors of hauling ass, and hauling gear, over different terrains and weather conditions. i have dropped about 40 pounds, with the intent of dropping some more, but my weight training, diet plan, hydro therapy, and exercise program has begun to pay off. my stamina has greatly increased, and i have re-discovered my "kick". so even if i end up not as prepared as someone else materials wise, i will have the conditioning and self discipline to persevere and get somewhere that others may not, that will have fallen by the way side and left some of their material stuff. but i still plan on being as ready as i can... its just that a big priority was to get back to where i could physically have those options.

HA, I need to gain some mass. I'm a measly 145 right now and I want to be 165. I can kick just about anyone ass in a quick fight or run scouting runs, but I have no endurance.

On a side topic... recently we evicted a guy and he left behind a generator ( needed some work but I fixed/cleaned it ). The guys is a supposed nut and he scratched and tore all the markings off this generator, so I have no clue what it is. I think its a Honda 7500 watt generator ( heres some pics of it..not mine, but mine looks the exact same ) http://www.santaclar..._Generator.aspx I need a pull crank for it, but I cant find anything on the actual generator. I think it has an LCT engine, but other than that I have nothing ( and I only know that because the guy missed a sticker on the engine block ). But whats confusing me is I think its an LCT engine, but the only one I can find close to this style is a Honda. And you cant ind ANYTHING on a 7500 watt Honda generator, or any generator to match that description.

LCT = liquid combustion technology .. a very common engine used by several makers of various size generators in the industry. on the engine is there a brass plate, or a metal plate with the engine specs tattoo'ed on it .. such as HP, Amps, etc ? or on the underside of the generator ... i am sure that the generator is stolen, and that is why someone went to such pains to destroy all the markings on it. lots of times you will find a model or serial number on the flywheel as well.

I've done everything just shy of pulling the piston and checking rings ( I should have because the crank case was full of gas and oil mix ). I'll look again, but there are no markings minus what I said earlier...well the block is stamped, but that wont help me.

Here is a what I found on it...well only half of this information was on it...but thats the engine specs, not really helpful in the long run. http://www.arb.ca.go...-u-063-0002.pdf

Its a 10 hp 390cc OHV LCT engine, I know nothing of the generator though. I figured the guy stole it, but hey, its mine now :) It dose run, I just need a crank assembly to make it easier to start... a perfect catch 22..need drill to start generator, need generator for drill...:)

i have no doubts that LCT has a website that has a cross reference to what you are looking for on that size engine.

Nice. I'm currently looking at an ENO Doublenest hammock, bug net, and a poncho/tarp for my solo bug-out/camping shelter, but I do want to track down a solid 2-4 person tent for those occasions when the hammock ain't viable, or I'm not solo. Also a bonus, any chick you convince to some camping is more likely to fool around if she's concealed in a tent.

I hear you on getting in shape. Right now it's laps around the hospital on break (I really need to get a compression bandage for arch support), hikes on my days off, and some kettlebells whenever i get the motivation to do so. And Pushups/situps whenever I have a few minutes to burn.

What I'm aiming to do is run some trips like nutnfancy's Point Break or Operation Red Skies trips. NC has a metric "FILTERED"ton more woods than he does out west though. Still should be a blast if I can get my ducks in a row for a trip. And find some REALLY way out there places for the rifle shooting.

i really like the hammock and the bug net idea .. even though i have a couple of tents that i kept, if it comes down to just me, i will be looking to hammock up in the trees. I don't like being down on the ground in a flimsy tent unless that is my last option. of course weather conditions also play a huge part ... that time of year ( dec ), it will be colder and there wont be as much foliage to hide you, protect you from the elements, and shelter you from the wind ... but if i am moving during the warmer months, or where there happens to be many conifers or evergreens, my first choice will be to go up.

I've seen people set up hammocks for winter stuff. I'd slap a section on sleeping mat under me and crawl in that Czech mummy bag and I'd probably be good at least 11 months of the year down here. Unless there's a bizarre cold-snap, I could probably go down to 20 degrees Fahrenheit in the bag with mat and full coverage dry clothes on.

I'm working on blowing out a small tree with rifles. Looks like I'll need more "burn" ammo.

For my area, I'm set with my sleeping bag. Have one that is good to -20. Very, very rarely does it get below the teens around here.
My job is to be an asshole. I excel at the position.

Thursday.July 19.2012.
Day 155.





ya know, i haven't even thought about my old military issue sleeping bag... its just one of those things that kinda slipped my mind. it will keep me warm enough, but there are much better options out there today that are just as warm, waterproof, and lots lighter...

on a side note, i saw a hennessy hammock ... I WANT ONE ... this has everything i have wanted in a tent, but is up off of the ground, lightweight, packs up and unpacks in minutes....these things look pretty awesome.

Hennessy Hammocks are "FILTERED". I'd look at the Survivor or especially the Safari lines myself. But right now ENO looking to be a little more affordable for me. With the money I saved I could buy a small tent or bivvy. Or a kick ass knife. Or build another small stash kit.

why do you say that ? i have never seen one up close, but actual user videos look pretty sweet. i looked at warbonnet vids as well, but the hennessy seemed better. i haven't looked at the survivor, but i am curious about your dislike of the hennessy... does it have bad craftmanship, or maybe you know somebody that has/had one and didn't like it ? it would be nice to be able to go to a shop and see one set up and look at it close up, get into it and roll around a bit ... see how user friendly it really is.
