Clearly I am prepared. But no madder how prepared you are it is never done. You can't stop living sometimes you have to step out side your mission and relax . Some of the things you do can serve both relaxation and prep. Range time with the right people can be a fun outing. But there are times when it just has to be, nothing to do with preparing with concern for tomorrow. In my case it is riding my motorcycles and stopping for coffee.
Two pleasures of life that I was denied or had limited for periods of my life. So that is my escape.
How do you just blow it all off for a while. Work, preparing, politics the news. Sad part is if SHTF My coffee stash will not last for ever, can not grow it here. I will not be out on a ride with the bikes they be stashed in their under ground home awaiting better days it they don't get stripped for need parts. Part of my plan is to enjoy it while I can. been training for what may come most of my life, I can take a day off now and then.

So much for time off they want to know if I can put an underground tunnel between the buildings. Wait till the building inspector hears this one

THAT is a good question. I often wonder this myself. Im sure its a chemical thing with me but I cant think of anything good... even the things that are supposed to make me happy like my motorcycle or whatever else I do... for some reason it all just makes me sad. At work I think about this a lot. through my eyes life is hell. All I have is hope that someday I will find some light in this tunnel. I know its just ll in my head and that helps... I guess I have to find a way to see the lighter side of things. For years my life has been work, sleep, work.

Having the right mindset is EVERYTHING because without it we're screwed and will never be content, we'll be like wagons without springs, jolted by every pebble on the road..;)
Some people develop the right mindset with the help of philosophy and/or or religion, so shop around for one that works for you.
With me, Christianity does the job perfectly because it puts a "force field" between us and the world to stop us getting sucked into it, and urges us to not take the world seriously, so I'd suggest anybody at least gives it a try.
An ex bounty hunter named Paul became a Christian and liked the new mindset it gave him-"I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want"- (Phillippians 4:12)
The Bible can therefore be regarded as a 'Survival Manual'.

Ten years ago I was just out of jail (3 month vigilante rap), homeless, jobless, near-penniless and living rough in a tent in the woods shivering and hypothermic with a sluggish thyroid, but not for an instant did I get depressed because I was too busy laughing at myself- "Great" I thought, "I've ended up as Bigfoot!"..:)
It works for others too-
"My Christian faith is my backbone"- Bear Grylls



In this clip Grylls and other Foreign Legion trainees are allowed to take one treasured personal item from their confiscated kit at 25:32, and he takes his Bible-

That time of year play has become limited. I ride no madder how cold it gets but snow limits it . Let the dogs and cats out to a fresh 1 of snow this morning. I had always dreamed of going back to TN some day less snow shorter winter. That just is not going to happen. At least if SHTF a lot or people will finding someway to leave here or sadly will not make it in the winter. This is where I was meant to be and that is that.
Had planned on getting some more riding in but that will be limited to a day here and there now. Winter is a good time to do other things, forces you to. I will make use of this one to heal up for next season. Do some more work on hardening this place should the time come. But on a morning like this first real snow of the year, A few minutes of selfishness thinking about how much I will miss the ride,and a great cup of coffee. The bikes have a BOL under ground . They will ride the storm out there unless it goes on to long and they get stripped for parts.
Please can we change this government and wake up enough people to turn this around. We will survive we will over come, some of us are just to mean to go quietly or fade away, but it is going to suck big time. I just wanted to be the grandpa that rode his Harley not the leader of a group of survivors. When the first shot is fired , when it starts We will all get over this and do what we must. Old soldiers get tired but they will not quit.

Not a madder of who but a mind set. The forced move to Socialism is what will bring us down. We have in the past worked though everything thrown at us. We did that because of our people and the mind set they had.
To many years of indoctrination in public schools and colleges have turned a large percentage of us into takers . There is not enough left to carry the load. You earn nothing you are required to do nothing . It all comes from the government.
If you can not see it then it is too late. The academic 10% will protect you they will provide for you just do as you are told , give up a few rights for your own good it won't hurt .
Listen carefully to their words, read the words they wrote you will know who they really are.
Your President said "I will bring America to it's economic knees" "The constitutions is outdated and irrelevant" He praised Hugo . No one ever quotes his words but he proceeds unhampered on his stated mission.

Although Communism is dead, there are still plenty of lefty pinko maggots in America and Britain feeding off its rotting corpse-

They're liars- "A lie told often enough becomes the truth"- Lenin
They're wreckers- "Destroy the family, you destroy the country"-Lenin
They're against free speech-"He who now talks about the "freedom of the press" goes backward, and halts our headlong course towards Socialism"- Lenin
They're godless- "Our program necessarily includes the propaganda of atheism”-Lenin

Stalin spelt it out-
"America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold:
its patriotism, its morality and its spiritual life.
If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within."
-Joseph Stalin

All prep no play is a drag some times. Snow out side single numbers on the temp. I have been working a lot on weapons and ammo storage time for a break.
Going down and lock my self in the bike room and work on my motorcycles for a few hours. S has not hit the fan yet so life must go on nothing wrong with some relax time.
