    Some time ago in this series we covered network-free GPS map product from Trimble for your Apple and Android phones (they still aren't selling the Iphone one). That product is basically a memory chip containing maps for whatever state you buy, and the phone uses the GPS chip to help you navigate the map. Many people in the comments of that article said "I'd really prefer a printed topo map in a SHTF situation." And I agree, but when you look at what you get with that product as compared to printed maps, it is a really great buy. For this follow up I decided to look into MyTopo, the $9.95 - $319 printed version of Trimble's map product, and WOW, you aren't going to believe how far modern cartography (map making) has come.

    SasquatchCoverThe Top 5 Guns for Hunting Sasquatch
    Trashcans in campgrounds across this country are being rudely overturned. Clotheslines across the heartland are being torn from their moorings, and laundry scattered hither and yon. Though late night cable crews struggle in vain to capture images of the culprits, their efforts have been fruitless. Half-assed, I say. It is up to us, the sportsmen of this venerable republic to stand united and bag these unruly bruits. With that noble goal in mind, I present the top 5 guns for hunting Sasquatch.

    From the beginning this column has been about actually going and doing what most people only think about doing. At the height of the "prepper craze," when the mindless and completely fake cable "reality" shows were popular, it was estimated that for every 10 people thinking about off grid survival, only one was actually taking actions at all. These days, when survival food is on clearance at Walmart, even more people have lapsed into "it isn't going to happen here." Because as it turns out, prepping is expensive, and very involved.

    This video is often thought to connect to John Lennon to the Illuminati, but the reality is that he was just another paid off rich guy distracting the people from the real issues of the Vietnam War.  The hippies were fooled, and today they couldn't care less about the death and destruction that we will bring for our new fake enemy ISIS.  It is up to us to stop the next war, and we will do it with information.

    A deafening silence has settled over the entertainment industry as Obama begins the next war the Middle East. Likewise the "hippie" generation of baby boomers who protested the Vietnam war. Don't you all remember that you supported the "anti-war" President Obama? He did get the Nobel Peace Prize didn't he? So why are we bombing a country or countries that have done nothing to us? Has anyone actually figured out why we are bombing people?

This time Tom McHale has had more time to really push the gun. How well does Beretta's new rifle stand up to close scrutiny? Read on...

    This article is not for the faint of heart. Like many of the overview articles in this Prepping 101 series, the topic of solar systems is fairly simple, but you have to learn the basics to get started. With what is here you should be able to take action and get going while avoiding a huge learning curve and the pitfalls that such a complicated learning curve can entail. In our first article on solar we looked at a very simple do it yourself kit from Harbor Freight. For more than a few light bulbs, that kit is lacking the energy to do much of anything, and it doesn’t even come with a power inverter or battery. The other side of solar is the big money option. Houses are being outfitted with solar every day all over the country. With enough panels and controllers and batteries, you can run your whole house on solar for a totally off grid lifestyle. For preppers, this is not a viable plan. Part of what we are doing has to be kept a secret, because when the system breaks down, we don’t want people to know that we have food, water, radio, and even working lights.
