    What Are Your Weekend Plans?

So what are your plans for the weekend?

Or, if you end up reading this on Monday, what did you do?

Doesn’t matter what – might be interesting to see that we “doom-and-gloomers” watch movies or play softball just like everyone else. Extra credit for 3E/Crash Course/prep-related activity, of course.

    Weekend Plans

Saturday
Weeding in our little garden. We have a small community garden plot – maybe 20 feet by 20 feet – with a couple of tomatoes, eggplants, some lettuce, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, sweet peas. It’s $50 for the year (we were on the waiting list for 4 years before we got the plot last month), and we’ve spent as much on tools, garden hose, seeds and seedlings. We’re doing it mainly for the joy and the experience.

We also have two upside-down tomatoes and a few upside-down strawberries hanging from a beam on our patio. They’re growing reasonably well and happy to be well-drained and weed free.

Sunday
Plans are to visit the local San Diego Wild Animal Park with wife and babies.

    lazy weekend

Long term store some food we just picked up.

Reload 100 .338 Lapua  bullets I just finished a powder ladder for.

Two hours of Kajukenbo training on Sat. and Sun.

Half a day at the range with my eight year old daughter. The other half packing for my wilderness EMT class in Moab next week.

Watch the movie Rio with the family.

Finish planting our corn. We already have everything else in the ground or started.

I think you will find that the prepper weekend is not anywhere near the same as the average american Wink or mabye I should useCry.

Rich

P.S. Hope that the price of silver will drop like a rock on Monday morning so I can load up some more!

    this weekend…

We are:

1. Making our order list for the Mornon cannery (May 26, need a trailer hitch for the newish Subaru Forester which will be installed next Friday).

2. More work on a chainlink fence. We will connect the sides in the back and roll it toward the street. We need the trailer hitch to pull and tighten the fence. 

3. Weed and water the garden. Plant another few boxes (peanuts, sunflowers, more hot peppers, and more beets). Harvest some lettuce and peas.

4. Order the propane generator we picked out tonight.

5. Take another bid on the pump house for the well.

6. Mow the lawn after potting some naturalized flowers, whcih we will use for community building.

7. Play “Angry Birds” – a lot!

    this weekend

Being thankful that I got turned onto CM.com, ZeroHedge.com and GeraldCelente.com

Being thankful that my son and daughter both dig the idea of prepping.

Being thankful that my wife is slowly starting to understand the concept of prepping, even though she is 

super-distrustful of any advice on the Internet. :o)   

Being thankful that I read the following WSJ article about PSVL and sold my position for a lovely profit.

Being thankful that I finally understanding that storing PMs in a tube in ground is better than storing PMs in a safe deposit box. 

Spending some time reviewing CM Forums and being thankful for the CM community.

Having gratitude for the amazing-ness of Springtime.

    This weekend….

Today we just finished hosting a meeting of the local Alternative Energy Association.

Twenty five people turned up and I introduced CM and the crash course followed by a discussion our new solar photovoltaic system, solar hot water system and my electric car conversion (in process).  Another EV car conversion showed up- a Toyota Celica with an AC drive and lithium phosphate batteries…. he had driven 70 miles to the meeting and didn’t bother plugging in as he had enough power left to get back home.  Wow!

This is the first of a rotating series of meetings at people’s homes to build community and see what others are doing.  Thank you Sager for the “building community forum” to remind me to get this aspect of prepping under way.  It was an interesting group with a lot of skillsets so good to make some connections.

Back to work tommorrow… Monday New Zealand time.

I wouldn’t call myself a ‘doom-and-gloomer’. Was there such a widespread colloquial word 200 years ago, or even 100 years ago. No, I would much prefer being called a realist. But I can suspend my realistic view on the world when I’m with loved ones. We plan on visiting Lego Land next month in California and catching a few rads.

Take care.
