HAPPY THANKSGIVING everyone. well we are prep'd and ready for our camping trip to Osceola National forest for the week. Trailer is packed and wow do we really need this much stuff for a week? when we have to bug out we will not be able to take this much stuff so how do you cut back. The B.O.B. bag i have is so heavy I joke to my wife I need to hire a person to tote it for me,hahahah. But for real its so heavy i could not walk from my home to hell the front yard and not be able to do much else like if I had to cut my way thru a jungle or well you get the point; ITS HEAVY. All this has me wondering what to keep and what to cut out of our things cause I feel like I only put what we would need to the trip.

 I remember my elders talking about not having a lot of stuff to drag along with them on their travels from place to place but for my family it seems like we have so much stuff but that that stuff is things we want not so much need and to get rid of it seems to make the kids feel like they have less then others. This is what TV does to a kid and adults for that matter, telling us we need to spend more, have more, get more, so we can build the economy up and help store's make their profits so this country is in better shape. Now when we get all this stuff now i need a bigger place to house it all and spend more money for lights and well it just goes on and on and on.
 One of the things we have done is to work on unplugging everything the uses power. All TV's computers anything that uses phantom power is unplugged we even shut off the water heater when not in use and we have seen a $50.00 decrease in our bill, yep sense it keeps the water at a current temp its always on and uses a lot of  power. Along with that I turned our refrigerator temp up for the fridge side and only a little on freezer side  so all of it together and not keeping the outside lights on all night we have saved $ 65.00 on our power bill this time.Very Cool Huh..
 All right will I've jumped all over the board again, promise I'll try to keep it all on the same page once I get better at this blog.

 Wa-do; thanks for stopping by.  BAMA

Happy Veterans day . I meant to post this Friday but forgot to finish it. Just to let everyone know Julz and I are both Veterans. In fact I meet my wife in the Army over in Germany where we were both stationed . She came in just as the first deployment of soldiers were sent to Iraq for "Desert Storm" and I had been their for three years already; all thou we were not selected to go to Iraq we did do our part in Germany guarding the main post where we were stationed as well as serving as a main stay over for troops that were coming and going to their post. I have all ways believed in what this country stands for but it seems that our country is moving in a different way and I don't think that its moving in the right direction. Now I have seen and was told stories from my gramps and uncles about our past; just so you know I am 1/2 cherokee and some blackfoot and a little mutt hahaha. I am in the ECHOTA cherokee tribe of alabama in the DEER clan where my uncle in our trible leader and when we were young he would tell us stories of how our family had to hide in the mountains of alabama, tennesse and georgia so they were not made to travel the trail of tears. There were some that did get caught and were taken to Oklahoma but once there they made the trip back to alabama. He would tell us of how they had to live off the land and how hard it was in the winter time as well as them not being able to grow crops because the WHITES would take what they had for themselves and kill us in the name of american rights.

 Now that seems like a long time ago but too me it seems like the government is still going about doing as they seem fit to do and tell us what we need to be doing and not doing and taking from us what we have and keeping it. I hope to see they day that we as people can come together and live a life of real freedom whith out all this bullshit government taking and taking and who does not give a damn about  "for the people". 

 I'm still getting use to putting down what i want to say and how to use blogger post but i hope to get it someday soon.

Thanksgiving is in two weeks and we are going camping again. I have been working on our BOB bags and on a trailer we own getting it set up to live off of plus setting up boxes that will stay on the trailer at all times. I wish it was a covered trailer but we got it at a great price for what it is so I will make it work for us.

If anyone has any tips for setting up our trailer let me know.

thanks to all our soldiers for everything they do and put up with. Bless you all.

wow, this is really sad and funny at the same time. It does just go to prove that lots of city people have no idea about the real world outside of the city. Just in case you can not see the picture its a opossum and this person has no idea what they have or how dangerous it can be..holy smokes..
