What did you do to prep this week? A weekly post about the various things I do to help myself and my family/friends become better prepared.
I took the entire week off from work and it was much needed. Had to go to Tennessee and while there visited some friends. While on the road I hooked up my CB for some comms testing. The radio in question is an old realistic. They don’t even make them anymore but it worked flawlessly.
Thursday I traded a Mossberg 930 that was functioning quite right for that Weatherby Mark V I told you about. I owe $400 on the rifle now. Testing, video, and pictures to follow when I bring her home.
While in Tennessee I did a bit of horse trading with a guy I know that sells optics at the local flea market. I managed to trade a Ka-Bar BK9 knife for a Millet TRS-1 4-16×50 riflescope that’s slightly used. Testing to commence once mounted on the Weatherby.
Went out on a hike and did some edible plant identification. Look for a wild foods post coming soon. While I was hiking plants found included:
various types of Violets
I also found a really awesome Shelf Fungus. First time for me. They are great for holding an ember. Basically, you take a slice out of a dried one and strike a ferrocerium rod or some other sparking device and it will smolder for hours. Great way to transport fire in bad conditions as well.
All together it was a fun week. How was yours?
