Leopard – at the very end of the film you can barely make out the place where I lived from 1984 to 1987. Well, my stuff was there but I was in and out. Nice gated complex of 9 houses. Had a pool! From poolside you walked down some steps to the beach. Sunset Beach (Pipeline) was about 50 meters to the left. To the right was what is called “The Backyards.” Nothing but large rocks and coral. When I had parties I would tell my military friends not to eat the brownies. My local friends made them with pot inside.
Talking to my Wednesday night group last night. Turns out one of the members son just moved to Cape Town. I didn’t know he was even thinking of going there. I gave his Mother a sanitized version of what was happening in SA. Gave her the links to IOL online publications. She will catch on quick.December 8, 2015 at 11:37 pm #45889
Non-GMO seeds. How to make fertilizer. How to plant/care for/harvest. How to create energy (from sun/wood/pulp/water.)….and some stuff Uncle Sam taught me!

“2016 – Obama’s America” pretty much says it all.

My concern is the Area of Operations itself. Just too many birds flying around looking for worms on the ground. I expect some toss-ups down the line.

Chester – For some reason Kaspersky gave me a “phising alert” on the link the first time. I blocked it, exited and then clicked on it again. No problem the second time.

MB, in that case read up on a “NVIS” antenna. (https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/NVIS/conversations/messages)
This yahoo group knows their stuff. They may argue with folks but
generally mind their manners. Poke around in the files.

MB, I suggest Google Earth (http://www.google.com/earth/). Once in the program have your son pinpoint his location. In the bottom right of the page he will find the lat/long and height above sea level. Use this reading to compare against interesting places (ie nearest downtown, known cel tower etc) and it will give him a rough idea of how much antenna (and type) he needs. If his location is higher than anything for about 50 miles then selection is unlimited. However, if he is in a hole (lower than anything around him) he will need to get an antenna on some type of mast and get it up in the air.
A simple antenna to build is a J-Pole (http://www.buxcomm.com/jpoles4ever.htm). I have made many to include one that folds for storage.
Lowe’s has top rail post for chain link fencing that can be used to mount antenna and get it up in the air. One end is tapered to fit inside the end of another post. (http://www.lowes.com/pd_103268-215-58910235___). Drill holes at the top and at the middle and attach guy wires. If you need to go higher than 35ft then I recommend a tower. I get tower sections by keeping my eye open for ones laying on the ground next to buildings. Just ask the owner if they plan to use the tower section. Many times I have people ask me to “please” take it!

Pretty much! Combat shooting instruction was done by a retired Gunny Sargent friend. He said if you are not shooting then you must be moving or reloading!

China comes to the rescue with buckets of gold! Is this what South African President Zuma and China have been planning? Fix the water problems (of course you may need to create the problem first!) Fix the electrical problems (see water problem!)

China’s 60BN Christmas gift to Africa.December 5, 2015 at 11:13 am #45740December 4, 2015 at 9:29 pm #45717
Knew it was coming but not at this level. I suspect the timing is to keep South Africa from being declared junk status!

Matt76, I agree up to a point. I have spent soooooooo much time unlearning stupid information in others it’s not funny. Someone will read that part of “zig zag” and take it to heart. That person will be dead if caught in a shooter event!
Is the information you posted stupid or useless? Heck no, keep it coming!

If I am driving or entering a building/area other than my house I am always looking for exits. If I am sitting in one of these places I always have my back to a wall and as such can see the entrances/exits.
Run, Hide or Fight – For me that depends: Is it better to immediately fight? Is/are the shooter(s) between me and an exit? Are there others with me?
Keep your hands empty and in sight: That is so not happening! If I am triggered into Run/Hide/Fight the first action is to pull my concealed carry.
Run in a zig-zag pattern? Give me a break! Just run!
