Almost ready to go. Had a delay of a couple days but should be leavin in next few days. Also, I was offered a radio show on BePreparedRadio.com It will be an hour show 5 days a week with the weekends playing the (best of.) I will be talking about survival,hunting,prepping,camping and off grid living. I already have a few interviews with some excellent people lined up.My first interview will be with the owner of the radio network Dr. Prepper/James Stevens. I will also be talking about the things we will be doing on our blog www.SurvivingTheBreaks.com We will be inviting some listeners and people that follow the blog out to the ranch on hunting,camping and survival trips too.
If anyone has any ideas for the blog or radio show, feel free to let me know.

Haha let me give you your first 12 blog posts

June, OMG this is great, the weather is in the 70's and everything is green

July, man so much space and so few people, the weather is warming up but we are still setting up and we love this. On a side note, where the hell did all these grasshoppers come from?

August, hotter than a fire cracker and dry, oh so dry, mosquitos are the size of horse flys and OMG the horse flys live up to their name!! Prairie fire north of us and the water shortage is a pain in the ass, good thing we drilled that well

September, the sunrise was beautiful today, sighted in my gun for antelope season and started a brush fire, had 412 Californians stop by today asking for hunting permission, fixed 4 spots in the wire where they just cut through and drove around.

October, finally general season is here, I shot the biggest buck I have ever seen on opening day, turned out to be a dorky forky (2 points per side) , man he sure looked bigger in the scope! Had a nice dusting of snow, wife and I cuddled on the fronts porch sipping brandy.

November, really? 10 below before thanksgiving? The good news is we can keep out beer cold on the back porch! Days are down to 10 hours of daylight and the chickens quit laying (the 3 that survives the coyote attack). Shoveled snow for about a week straight, good exercise! Been elk hunting 15 days straight with no luck, I saw so many I the fall, I think they migrated.

December, spent most of the first week keeping the road open to the county road, my God will it ever stop snowing? my wife says if we don't get out of this god forsaken place she is going to cap me, went to the Lewiston movie theatre and saw the only movie showing, Man FromSnowy River.

January, did hell really freeze over? sorry for the late post the lines were down for several days and it turns out nobody cares. The wife is on "vacation" with her mother in Florida, I told her i misses her on the phone and she laughed. 22 days with the temperature below zero, that patch job I did on the snow plow didn't work so well, maybe next month I'll get to town.

February, wife is still gone, turns out the airport is still closed but I'm starting to wonder. Actually the weather broke this month and is over 30 degrees, damn I can't find my short sleeve shirts. Good news, the beer finally thawed!

March, I'm almost out of food, the gumbo is impassible and I have been stuck at the house for weeks. The wife made it Lewiston but saw the spring storm and went back to Florida.

April, snow is gone, mud continues to be a problem, the creek went flood stage and took out the chicken coop and my last 3 chickens, I really miss that hen "Molly". April 28th WTF 14" of snow and down below 20 degrees!!! So much for the garden.

May, on my third garden now, after that second freak storm the hail stones got the other. Actually this is the best weather of the year so far, nights in the 40's and the days I the 70's, it just might be worth it.

See June above

Montana Rancher - That sounds an awful lot like Minnesota! We had snow for about 10 minutes on Saturday; today it got up to 97!

There are some things that California has to offer and the weather is certainly one of them. I don't care for the politics or the people mostly though. I've never been to Montana but spend several weeks each fall in the Bridger National Forest in Wyoming. Beautiful country but would be tough to take 12 mo. per year. I have spent a fair bit of time up in Alaska working in the fish industry. I know from personal experience that Alaskans are just tougher people than most and reading about Montana, I have the feeling they are of the same ilk.

I hope you know I am just being funny, you may actually be the gung ho bastard from Florida you claim to be, but I will be watching your blogs with interest.

Going from a climate that would never kill to a land that wants to kill you all the time, it will be fun to see your observations.

And let's factor in all the strange cattle mutilations that are going on in the rocky mountain states, there was a TV show about it again only the other day, it seems aliens are abducting cattle, carving bits off them and then dropping the carcasses back where they found 'em.
They could switch to (gulp) carving up humans any time.
Where's the US Air Force while all this is going on? John Wayne in 'Flying Leathernecks' would never have stood for it.

PS- and stay clear of a place called Brokeback Mountain because I heard some things about the cowboys up there..

No worries. Your sense of humor is like mine.. Trust me, I am a gung ho bastard from Florida..LOL I think there are some people on here that think we are just pickin up from Florida and moving to Montana having no idea what we are getting into. Now don't get me wrong. We are not locals by any stretch of the word. But we have spent much time there, up to about 7 months at once, including a few winters. The last winter we spent there was apparently a record breaker..So we're not goin in totally blind.. It sure will be interesting though.

I have to admit. I LMAO. That is pretty funny Montana Rancher.....and for any one in a northern tier state not buffered by the Pacific or Atlantic....absolutely correct. I don't have as much uninhabited space as you do in Montana, but, the rest all rings a bell.....only, I can't afford a vacation to Florida. I sit in my half submerged family room next to my woodstove for warmth and recreation, and pretend it's Florida. I am so sorry about your hen Molly. ;)
