Happy Paratus!

Today is Paratus, the holiday celebrating and encouraging preparedness. Read all about it at that link, where the FAQ is as tongue-in-cheek as it is useful.

And I even got a card! Thank you, Commander Zero.

So how are YOU celebrating Paratus (other than not celebrating it at all because you never heard of it before)? Follow that link at the top for ideas.

    That’s a great drawing. Well, I just bought a cool Eton crank SW radio for two bucks next door at (dead) neighbor’s estate sale.😄I held a preban AK-47 for first time at gun shop yesterday…over two grand with no magazine available🤔. A heavy simple weapon that inspires confidence. Loud as hell, though.

    I think we should celebrate Beto’s birthday.

    If you’re interested in DIY portable solar, you could watch some videos on the OH8STN channel on YouTube. He’s focused on amateur radio, but the concepts would be the same for other uses.

    Also, September 20th is Unification Day (and Captain Mal’s birthday), so get prepared and head to an Alliance-friendly bar for a quiet drink. And take Zoe with you.
