Love my home state.

You will not find the warrior, the poet, the philosopher, or the Christian by staring into his eyes as if he were your mistress: better fight beside him, read with him, argue with him, pray with him.

Hazard 4 Patrol Pack.
Do you have a bug out bag ready in your home?  If not, why not? You buy life insurance, don’t you?  Life insurance is paid when you die.  Think of a bug out bag as "don’t die" insurance.

My family has farmed this land for 90 years……..but, this is misleading.
Most of the small farms failed because a piece of equipment (like a combine) that cost $6,000 in 1960 now cost $125,000.  There are now more “super farms” run by management companies.  The ratio of Americans fed is up because the family farms are disappearing.  The number of farmers is less.
According to the 2012 agriculture census…. The average age of the US farmer is 58.5 years.
Guess what will happen in the next 20 years?

well around here a lot of families still farm granted some are MEGA farms but it is not a company just a family that has made a lot of money farming. I hope someday I can restore my farm fully, my goal time is 20-25 years to do so.
