Go read Survival blog for today..... http://www.survivalblog.com/ My Email to Rawles: From the first post on the blog this morning: Talks about the shortage of DOT road salt, and how that snarles up traffic and supply lines. OK..... Quite reasonable. Then they head off the deep end a little: " It is a wise investment to have some road salt on hand, just in case." Other than to have a bag in your vehicle to possibly get you out of temporary 'stuck' situation on the road, how much would one want to "invest" in road salt ? I mean, are they suggesting I walk down the interstate hand broadcasting the stuff ? ahahahahaaaaaaa..... "If you live a simple life then most of your wood furniture can be used as fuel, but be careful when selecting what you will use as fuel. If you use furniture be sure to thoroughly strip it of any varnish and paint." ahahahaaaaaaaaaa........SURELY the writer isn't serious here ? You're so short of fuel you're down to burning your dadgum furniture and the writer cautions you to "be sure to strip the paint and varnish" ??? ahahahaaaaaaa.....honestly, he/she had me rolling in the floor this morning. HOW would they suggest one DO THIS ??....drive to town and take it to the "dip and strip" ?? Sit there with your Swiss army knife scraping it off ?? Stock up on sandpaper ?? Then the long part on how to make newspaper and cardboard "logs"......ahahhaaaaa....."compress cardboard by piling it up and having the kids jump on it".......ahahahaaaaaaaaaa.....stop it....yer killing me....ahahahaaaa Really Rawles......you must have been short of a good email to put that crap up this morning......this sounds a like "soccer mom turned survivalist". But it sure was good for my morning dose of humor ! Thanks !!
