Backblasts

Bundy’s Better-Late-Than-Never, TEOTWAWKI/Zombie Apocalypse Halloween Survivalist Prep Spectacular (yes, I know this is a month late…but humor me….)

The weather this morning was cool and perfect. The grass was damp. The dark enveloped us with the chilling embrace of a sinister stranger. It was a great day to sharpen some iron.

Head to living [...]
