Salutations! I was told by a friend who introduced me to the Monkey that I was to promptly write a greetings. So here I am! Greeting monkeys! Growing up in a small town, being homeschooled, and living on a farm I learned a lot as a child how to live self sufficient, animal husbandry, and so on. But I strayed away from that life in my 20s. I became a liberal city slicker, ignorant to what was happening in politics, and blinded by the rat race, "keeping up with the Jones" Then a group of men I had become friends with had gone down to stand at the Bundy Ranch and I became aware of how much I was truly missing out in life. The next time I pulled my head out of the hole and witnessed I had been blind to what was really happening LaVoy was shot and left to bleed out in the snow along that snowy road in OR and I was an angry college kid in disbelief that the feds had gone that far, I was mad at how ignorant people were to what was happening. I knew my friends were standing, drawing a line in the sand and I chose to be on the side they where on. I would not be a looky lou or a good weather Patriot. NO, for me it was all or nothing. Shortly after that I sold all my junk, quit college and moved to Alaska. I trained under a fellow patriot, lived in a tent for 6 months and when the weather turned cold I moved in to an off grid cabin. I learned alot about myself in those months. The Christmas of 2016 I moved back "the outside" (the lower 48) and took of a job as a handler for a musher in Montana. Giving guided tours in the bitterroot mountains. I am now in the Redoubt with a small farm and a community which is all about God, guns and old Glory, I am still learning and growing and building my life to model after our founding Fathers. This is me I'm a patriot.
