    “I pledge allegiance to living my best life, to encouraging all people to live theirs, to refraining from aggression against all, and to the philosophy from which these ideals derive, for liberty, prosperity, and justice for all.”

    A great man by the name of Thomas Jefferson explained the reason for the declaration of independence from a totalitarian regime called Britain in his preamble. The […]

  • “Here, shoot this,” said Tom.

    “What do I do? How do I hold it and what if I push the wrong button?” Molly replied. “Ok, I’ll shoot it.”

    Boom! “Ouch! Damn that hurt! Is it supposed to hurt like that?” cri […]

    • Well written and a great explanation of information from a woman’s point of view. Like the Pretty Loaded video training, there are many essential tips found in this article. It bears reading multiple times. A collection of articles like this would be a useful handout for any firearms instructor.

  • Knockdown Shooting Bench from kosterknives.com
    I found a good design for a shooting bench made from a single sheet of plywood on the web. It requires a 4×8 sheet of 3/4″ plywood, and I chose pressure treated at […]

  • While the dynamic of today’s nuclear family has changed some in recent decades, the ruts of historic roles of family members are still deeply etched. Hopefully the tide of the two income household will reach a […]

  • I have come to notice a certain trend among the homesteaders and permaculturists I surround myself with. It seeps its way into their consciousness around this time of year. The final harvests are done, the frost […]

  • If you are pursuing training in firearms for yourself personally and/or professionally, bring the right mindset.  An Art teacher back in high school gave me a book, or I bought in on his recommendation, I can’t re […]

    • People are reluctant to change/something new, if it doesn’t work go back to what does…If it is better than the original way then you’re that much better off.

  • Every day I meet people who are in chronic pain. In fact, twice in the past I had chronic pain. Once in my lower back and once in my left knee. At its worst the back pain kept me from standing upright or walking, […]

    • Yes, Kelly has done a lot to bring physical therapy to a consumer level. Another great resource is Eric Creesey (http://www.EricCressey.com/), although his material is aimed at a more educated/trained athlete or coach. However, physical therapy takes place largely in the proprioceptive realm. Over the next dozen articles I will give you some assessments and corrections you can take to determine and correct higher level disorders. Each person is different, so the exact same program will help some people and break others. If a coach does not know this, or know what to do about it, the results can range from unexcitedly mediocre to disastrous. On the other hand, when you fully understand this, performing optimally is not only possible, its expected. Keep an eye on this series, it will start to get beyond proprioception around Part Six or so. I look forward to any questions you have then.

  • Molly was driving down the interstate to go visit her boyfriend when she notices she has a flat tire. She immediately pulls over and assesses the situation and quickly realizes she needs to call AAA to have […]

    • Forget the tire. The story was only to prove a point I know it was a real situation but he could have just as easily come upon her whilst she was out changing the flat…

    • Make sure the tire installer torques the lug nuts properly. Have an adequate 4-way lug wrench or a breaker bar with the right socket. PRACTICE so you know what to do. Keep that pistol on your person, not in your purse!

    • Yes ! I’m a 165 lb guy, just helped a young lady change a flat this march. I asked her to watch so she would know how later, if a similar situation happened in the future, but I had to use my foot and kick
      / stomp the wrench down to get the lugs loose. She might have been about 95 to 100 lb. I do not think she could have done it by herself with out knowledge, and other tools.

  • While mildly disappointing, science has not caught up with science fiction.  There are no cool eye implants that give you night vision or thermal imaging.  And the units that are available aren’t something tha […]

  • When TEOTWAWKI (or SHTF or “grid down”- whatever your flavor of alphabet terms)  you will be glad you took a preventative, proactive stance by taking charge of your health.

    In part 1 of this series I will be […]

    • I have read sugar is more addicting than cocaine. I dont know if that is true, but I do know it is highly addictive. Thanks for the input

    • Thanks, Steve.
      I am looking forward to reading your article

    • Lots of excellent info and down to earth ideas on detox. The weekly juice thingy is very good and likely should be a regular part of ones health regimen and diet. The liver may be the single most important organ considering it is a main filter? But A balanced endocrine system is also part of the equation and not at all difficult to accomplish. I will be writing something that enhances the gardening part shortly and a fitness update that is easy to accomplish. Dandelion root , chard, cabbage, arugula and beets all in the ground and doing well since weather changed recently. Good on Ya, and thanx for all your info.

  • The Soil
    One of the first challenges a modern homesteader is faced with is poor soil. In rare instances, soil may not be your immediate issue, but you should be looking downstream to make sure this does not […]

    • Good info Travis. As a fellow Coloradoan, I relate to your comments about the soil quality here and the limited rainfall. I’m especially interested in the Hugel beds you describe and want to try them for some of my perennials like raspberries. Let me know if you ever make it up to Salida.

    • You have brought up a very important point about planning. I have seen many people start to put their plants in without any planning. I like that you have given information and incorporated different forms of watering for different situations
