Mon. Aug. 19, 2019 – no news is good news

Probably just as warm and wet as usual. I’m writing this last night, so I can be sure and get everyone out the door with a good breakfast this morning. It’s been tight doing it the way I did it last school year.

I’m hoping to get some more work done this week to get another couple of loads to auction. I have some volunteer work wrt my non-prepping hobby on Thur and Fri, and my ham radio lunch on Wed, so it’s gonna be a busy week in any case.

One of the things I’ve been looking at is what food and tools people took with them when they came to the US or emigrated west. I’ve got some lists from the cattle drives, and from Plimoth Colony. If I can get a couple more, I think there is a good article in it.

To be honest, I’m thinking of how I could enter the article contest at survivalblog.com. Those prizes look sweet, and some of the articles are not great. I could do better, I think. It couldn’t be anything I’ve previously written for here. I feel like I’m cheating a bit whenever I consider it though.

Well, it’s something to think about anyway.

I better get some sleep so I can get up and start this day…
