    WHATCHA DOING TODAY?

    I shouldn’t say this, but I am jealous. DH doesn’t wanna go anywhere. He did so much traveling all his life, he’s content staying home. It looks like you had a marvelous time. I know I would. Finished my ToDo’s and errands, then bbq’d moms dinner. Getting some rest/sleep before heading home tomorrow.

    medical testing - ugh

    That’d be me too.

    Oh Ambergris, those are awesome, too bad they fall. DH likes the Ocean Spray Juice 101.4 fl. Oz. Bottles, they have a handle. They are a little heavy, but with proper water management, a bottle can last for a while. Definately, Mt_Rider, parallel to the road, but at a distance. Far enough to not be seen, but, I could still use the road as a landmark. Absolutely no makeup. Hair tied with a rubber band, earrings removed, baseball cap and sunglasses, loose clothing to disguise my curves. Monocular is single vision with a wide view, while a spotting scopes view is rather narrow. My eyes don’t like binoculars, I always close one eye anyway. Desert military boots provide substantial protection for snakes, scorpions, cactus, and the like. Plus, wearing the flight suit adds another layer of protection. If, it’s that bad and I really have to walk.... my plan is to walk away from the road, as far as I can and still be able to see it. Most predators won’t be looking out in the wilderness/desert for prey. And then, to head for my destination. Make it as far as I can and stop and rest, gather my perspective and priorities. Survey my surroundings for a suitable place to rest. Then, continue on, keeping in mind, fresh supplies are always going to be better then breaking into the MRE’s. My my tent is grayish white & black, quite muted, an old one from way back when, but in pristine condition. A little creative camouflage, and it wouldn’t be seen. Oh, definitely, Ambergris, cigarettes make a wonderful fire starter and barter. Lol, we actually have 20 year old cigs in the freezer, however, keep in mind about 10 years ago, the powers that be, required all cigs to have a chemical added to them to make them go out if they are not being smoked, so... if you look closely, there are three shinny rings on the cigs that will extinguish it. Near the end, one in the center and one near the filter. It was supposed to eliminate the fires caused by people putting it in the ashtray and forgetting about them. Mt_Rider, have you seen these. https://www.hurrycane.com/pages/hurryroll. Something that intrigued me as a multi purpose helper.

    Very interesting. My big BOB, for the monthly trips, is a backpack, that’s designed to put most of the weight on the hips 1 overall flight suit; multiple pockets 2 pair of socks & underwear stocking & baseball caps sunscreen multi-tool, sharp pocket knife, small whet stone space blanket a few MRE’s life straw fork & spoon ziplock with sugar, salt, pepper, & coffee packets, hand sanitizer, and single packed wet wipes. small plastic comb (great for removing cactus) small LED flashlight, larger LED w/extra batteries bic lighters, in case one gets wet, a couple books of matches Lightweight windbreaker jacket w/removable fleece liner bandana ziplock w/1st aid; (I use a mechanical pencil lead refill container to store needles in) We’ve managed to miniaturized most of it, for the sake of weight. 10x monocular a military compass 2 bungee cords to attach the 1 person tent - https://www.survivalfrog.com/products/solo-1-person-backpacking-tent?a=1?variant=38676789313&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI14OOp72S3gIVQdbACh3-lwPPEAQYCCABEgLXhvD_BwE a lightweight blanket & lightweight 0* sleeping bag 1 pair of military hiking boots, adjustable walking stick. A long range & short range person protection items with refills. That’s just the very basic list of what’s in it. We’ve added a few other comforts, I can’t recall, at this moment. The total weight, including the tent is about 20 lbs. I always carry several gallons of water, in juice bottles. Worst case, I would use the rope in the car, to hang a gallon or two on my belt, putting all the weight on my hips. If, I’m stranded somewhere between my destinations, due to SHTF, I’d hike towards the closest destination. Being female, I would get out of sight, as best as I could. Including, disguising myself to look like a transient. We’ve discussed several scenarios, where getting home would be the only option, instead of heading back to the big city. Yes, it would take months to walk 400 miles and would challenge every survival skill I have. Around home, we don’t go out that much. I carry a mini-BOB in my purse, and a medium one always stays in the car. Enough to sustain 2 people 3-5 days.

    WHATCHA DOING TODAY?

    Tired... Yesterday we enjoyed the luncheon, entertainment was a pianist and an artist. Today was the annual fall fashion show, by Chico’s and a silent auction. When we got home, spent quite some time on the phone, trying to get info regarding long term and custodial care benefits from her insurance company. At least, they are sending an updated policy book. Hers was dated 2006 and 2011. Just a tad outdated. Tomorrow is running some errands for mom and finish up my ToDo list.

    Kappydell, I’ve heard, the origins of tannerite, came from construction and building roads, they’d place it in/under rocks to break them up. But, I can’t find anything online about that, right now. I know we’ve seen stuff disappear into dust, using the stuff. Getting ready for one of MIL’s meetings. Today is the Woman’s Club Luncheon.

    ((((((Mt_Rider))))). Made it safely to TX wind was a bear. DH said it was raining again at home, saw snow falling on the mountains. 46* when I got here. DH said it was going to be cold, but I thought the temps he was telling me was going to be the lows not the highs. Maybe I brought enough warm clothes, probably not. Mom watched Green Bay beat.the 49ers at the last second of the game. What a cute puppy, Dogmom. 😍 Sounds like you have a lot going on, Cowgirl, mmmmm....apples. ($1.50/lb here) Time to get some sleep.

    I knew you were out traveling, We2, worried that flash flood effected you. It wiped out a bunch of motor homes , they were searching for people. So so grateful you are okay.

    We are still getting rain. It’s a medium rain, off and on, giving it time to soak in. It should do the rye grass good, at least I don’t have to water. Today is house cleaning day. Hopefully, the dogs won’t trash the floors. The ferret room was cleaned Wednesday, after Temperance passed. Uriah is becoming more touchable now. Seems too quiet with just one. Time to get back at it.

    I need to call my little brother. He & his wife are near the GA/FL border near the military base. They were ready for Florence, I suspect they still are. Stay safe everyone. We are watching the next one headed for the Baja.

    DH has company coming later. I'll be serving dinner. Green chili chicken enchiladas, beans & rice. His friend made a successful sour dough starter and he's going to bring some for us. Last week, the gardener scalped the yard and planted winter rye. Dealing with an ailing ferret. I don't think she has much time left in this world. She doesn't want to get up to eat, so, every two hours, she gets a bowl of 'duck soup'. High protein juice with softened ground food. *Sigh* This is the only part of loving the fur balls that is the worst. It's raining off and on, and cold... 60* Brrrrr.... for this heat loving desert dweller. Beans are on, chicken is almost ready to be shredded, and I have a batch of dough rising for cinnamon rolls rising. I doubt the oven is going to heat the house too much. lol

    Good morning everyone. It’s been a nice light rain off and on. The heart of Rosa was making land fall last night. This morning it looks to be moving up central AZ, headed your way Mt_Rider. Of course, the humidity has skyrocketed. All the plants and trees are green again. Grrr runs, as best as he can, does his duty, and heads straight for the door to go back in. Gunny won’t go out if it’s raining. He checks every time we open the door. Didn’t get much done yesterday. ‘Best laid plans..’. Today, I hope to finish the book work, then get some chores done.

    It’s lightly raining, thankfully no downpours. Quite refreshing actually. It’s like a breath of fresh air. Today’s ToDo includes, monthly book work, maybe do some shopping, if the washes aren’t flowing. If, I have time, maybe get the curtain Travis rod installed, maybe do some sewing, definitely not going to waste my time and clean floors, the boys have already made me glad I didn’t get them done Saturday.

    Multipurpose for common items

    Alka Seltzer to clean a toilet, corn starch kills cockroaches, efferdent to remove yellow stains, and Spam to polish leather. Thanks, some of those made me laugh.

    The hens have a penthouse and enjoy their roosts nearly 6’ off the ground. Hopefully, the trench I dug last time will keep the water from pooling in the yard. It’s lightly overcast, nothing to worry about, right now. Maybe it will miss us.

    Jeepers, I use MyRadar too. It also shows fires. Continuing the topic of Sasame Scores: DH turned on the TV, and DirecTV/ATT did an update. Except the update fried our receiver. I called them. It took an half an hour to finally get a real person to talk to. She made me go through all the steps the automated system told me to do, again. She ran some tests on the system, then, put me on hold. When she came back on the line, she wanted the model number of the receiver. While giving it to her, I noticed the date on our receiver.... 2009. Yeah, it is a little old. She said they are replacing it and, no, they don’t want the old receiver back. Told me to recycle it or keep it. DH really wanted to watch his football games, so, I downloaded the app to his tablet, which we had to agree to another user agreement.....’anaylitical data will be sent, kept for a limited time’.....and..... ‘sent to their affiliates’.... How long is a ‘limited time’? After all that, company stopped by, putting an halt to house cleaning. I’ll finish tomorrow. There is a hurricane coming up the Baja. Weather forecast says it headed right at us. It’s supposed to drop 2-4” of rain. I’m covering everything and securing the covers because they also warned of strong winds. Radar is showing the storm entering AZ already.

    WHATCHA DOING TODAY?

    Wednesday evening DH wanted to go fishing. I decided not to nap before. We left around 11 pm. The water was calm, very little breeze. Fished most of the night, a tiny bite, missed it. Caught a rock or two. Saw some awesome falling stars. Decided it was a mistake not to nap before going. And, decided I will need to bring warmer clothes. 65* on the water was enough to give me the shivers. We docked, I got the trailer and we were packing up when another yaker was launching next to us. He started to pull away and his trailer fell off his truck! A boat launched, then floated for about an half an hour, before using his trolling motor to dock, then he loaded it back up and left. Then, another yaker, walked over asking if we had an extra oar, he forgot his. We had a great day, even though we didn’t catch anything, compared to others on the lake. I had been up from 4am Wednesday until Thursday around 3pm, then, slept at least 12 hours. Today, I fixed a sewing machine, sewed a set of curtains and barbecued dinner. Watched Live TV and now... ...gonna get some sleep. Tomorrow is house cleaning day........gotta wash the area rug ‘cause Grrr’s inconstancy . Poor old man. ...... ugh....

    TheCG, have you tried oregano oil extract soft gels. We’ve been using them for years and they kick crud on the butt. Lol It’s a natural antibiotic.

    Yup! I had two surgeries, where I told them I got sick from the meds, before my surgery. They told me they didn’t have anti puke stuff. Ugh..... nasty recovery time.
