Press "Enter" to skip to content


I get a little high-flown and abstract at times, but freedom practicalities still remain …

Here, courtesy of friend JW, is a thoughtful (and not what you might expect) piece on permaculture from John Mosby at Mountain Guerrilla.

And via Greg Ellifritz, here’s a variety of advice on what to do about those negligent relatives who “joke” that they don’t have to prep because they’ll just show up at your house when TSHTF.

Finally, Vox takes on EDC. Of course, Vox being Vox, they’re more interested in their suspicion that “the EDC community” is sexist than they are in the actual utility of everyday carry of useful objects. Still, the article’s interesting.

    EDC for me, G43 & mags, zero tolerance folder, scorpion FL, small leatherman multi tool, cordage, wrist watch, money clip & wallet (& NO cell phone!).

    Read that Vox article yesterday or the day before. I was frankly surprised they took it as seriously as they did, I kept expecting them to turn it into a “this is what the nazis are doing” thing. But yeah, surprise, people with nothing better to do than share knife pics on a subreddit are predominantly male and therefore “we” need to force more woman/trans participation in the EDC “culture.”

    Though I think of women as the original EDCers, since for most of my life most women carried these great big purses and basically were stocked for anything short of an invasion of Norway.
