Tell us more of these Skanks-Mares <br>
Does it have to do with truck stops, since Angus is OTR? lol
Funny… I’m sure there are skanks out there lol… Great chapters in the “Patriots” book by Rawles!
Yeah, I’m feeling it from Angus! He’s gonna score a Mosin and be thumping watermelons and old cantaloupes soon! Those are targets that give the shooter validation, positive feedback and affirmation! Hunted many melons in my day, ala Hickok45 on YouTube Lol…September 29, 2014 at 11:32 pm #25684
THere is a PTR 91 for sale locally for $900. if you want details I can send to you.
You would have to go through FFL most likely since you are not resident in this state.
Mosin Nagant and SKS are low cost Battle Rifles using 7.62x54R and 7.62×39 respectively…. Cheaper ammo than that PTR 91’s .308 or 7.62×51.. shocked at ammo prices for .308 lately.
Lots of great counsel here… Let me know what you think of the book Patriots when you read it. Tons of great philosophy there. especially that hindsight is 20/20!September 29, 2014 at 2:59 am #25604
Nice… My grandfather said it too… “Get on Shanks Mare, it’s cheaper and better for you.”
Any chance a couple mountain bikes could be attached to the back of the tractor part of the rig?
They would speed up your trip home if there was an EMP or other event.September 29, 2014 at 2:50 am #25602
Angus, chapter 9 in the Rawles book “Patriots,” is Shanks Mare, not Skanks, lol.
Really recommend that book for you and your co driver. Keep reading here.September 29, 2014 at 1:10 am #25581
Good questions and comments from 74 and Mountain biker.
I travel five states for work. Have friend network there in all states that have resources and we have established that if I’m ever stranded, I’m welcomed for the duration. Perhaps you might have A) family, or B) old friends you could get re-connected with on your route…? Maybe some allies where you could stash some items n supplies… Or cache them along your route. That is a whole other facet to prepping but worth the time if your travel.
If you end up propositioning things, read the book Patriots, by James Wesley Rawles and check out chapter 9, titled Skanks Mare.
Some good ideas for you there!August 27, 2014 at 3:01 am #23388
Good to know many of us have spouses that are coming along to our way of thinking. I’m 46 too and took wife out to shooting range recently. She’s a natural shot, so I’ll behave myself now that she can handle a rifle. We are south of you in northern Utah. Passing through ideeho tomorrow en route to Montana!
To all former Boy Scouts who didn’t make Eagle… No need to bring it up. Not worth repenting that you fell short… That just helps statistics of the rarity to earn. You Life rank scouts are now pardoned.
For water… Check out a website called findaspring.com and make those stops part of your routine. I’ve gained and learned several natural springs as I travel the western states fir my job.June 13, 2014 at 7:29 am #16439
Haven’t seen my dad in 8 years… And he just turned 80 two months ago. We are going to see him tomorrow in the California Bay Area and we are at a hotel nearby tonight.
Our kids are excited to see him and really get to know him.
Driving around here you have to wonder how nuts things could get if society unravels or splits at the seams. Too many people in a confined geography. I could not even bring my full capacity magazines… Due to crazy Cali gun laws. A Glock 30 with several 10 round mags and a Kel Tec pf9 in case… You never know, right?June 12, 2014 at 7:34 am #16340
Prices in the Western states have dropped! I travel for work and have picking up small caliber ammo in small towns. Three out of fours stops I made in towns of less than 4,000 people, yielded 22LR, 22 Magnum and 9mm ammo for less than one year ago!
Best way to keep driving prices down is not to pay the premium prices. Also, I have made lower offers for ammo on classifieds and people are motivated to sell when they sense the shift from more demand to more supply and less demand. Many folks are worried they’ll be stuck with ammo they bought to resell at a nice profit!
