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.


  1. Hey, just found your blog. Like what I see.My family has (we are trying to find info to see if it is true.)Native American in our family. And we were told about the trail of tears. Our great grand mother, remembered riding in a covered wagon, as a small child, only at night. And she had to wear her brothers shoes. And I agree with ya about the government.

    We all could use some real freedom right now.

  2. Blogging seems quite difficult at times. I was enjoying writing and then my other knee surgery. It has been rough the last few weeks but i am doing well and will be ready for our first thanksgiving camping! Cant wait actually. We have ordered a ham....(a luxury we reserve for just one time a year) our youngest son and a very good friend of the family will be camping with us. Very exciting. I am looking forward to a trail this trip and hopefully catching some fish. A bit of target shooting, a 38 that hasnt been fired in a long while.
    Im sorry, must cut this a bit short, i am using my android and it is not cooperating with me.
    Peace out, Julz
