So far this year.....not much.
Fixed some essential gear.


Will be working on reviewing old goals and setting new goals.

Prepare to VOTE. The holiday ends tomorrow with the first business day of the new year, and Iowa pulls the trigger.

We're still working things out here in VA, trying to get the ballot debacle fixed.

1) Bought a small hand-held solar charger
2) Bought my wife a dedicated SHTF gun, 7 shot Taurus .357 revolver
3) Put away a few lbs of beans

What I want to do:

1) Get our food stockpile back up to at least 3 months. We moved and had to leave our old preps
2) 500 rds for all handguns
3) Take a few weekend trips to the bush to work on real-life outdoor skills
4) Learn how to fillet a fish. My dad always did the filleting when I was a kid; became a teenager and wasn't interested in fishing. Later joined the Marines, no fishing. Now I'm back.
5) Aimpoint for AR-15. I sold a Primary Arms scope to fund my wife's 357.
6) Maybe a little bit more silver? I'm in college now, so money will be tighter.

Bought a pair of Gamma Plus rifle plates today. I'll buy a Banshee carrier and mag pouches/holster in the next few days.

This year I plan to diversify even more than in past years... that includes taking a vacation to preserve my sanity. Might not seem like much of a prep but after 12 years and a few s*** sammiches....I'm due!

Practicing starting fires with my ferro rod, and NO, I'm not the guy you've been hearing about in Los Angeles who's been starting all the fires. (He didn't use a ferro rod, he used automobiles to start his fires.)

Also distilled water with a solar still and got some ideas on how to improve the still.

Discovered how to find north from constellations OTHER than the big dipper.

Created an in-the-wallet, always-on-me set of flat tools: fresnel lens, razor blade, morse code cheat sheet, duct tape, and single towlette. In THEORY I can start a fire, cut food, communicate, clean, and bandage with what's in my wallet.

Reading abt the adventures of extreme ocean rafter William Willis. (You can survive on sea water? Really??!?)

Reading GT S/P forum religiously.

As for my week.....besides the demands of "real job" & family...

..I am trying to bring a concept for a novel firearms accessory from inception to reality!


Inception was approximately 2 or so weeks ago...

..since then lots of time invested trying to refine the concept in my mind,

..then procuring materials, discussing fabrication details with my machinist/welder, designing prototypes,

..including an out-of-state trip to discuss details with an CII/SOT manufacturer/partner on Thursday.


The prototypes are almost finished....(testing should be sometime this week)

..hopefully they will be WORKING prototypes..

..if not redesign & re-fabricating until either I am sure the idea cannot be easily be made to function properly..

..or it does work...

..then patent submission & submission for ATF approval.


If all the hurdles can be cleared...

Even a "base hit" should have substantial financial gains & lifestyle improvement....

(though we are not exactly slackers now )

..a "home run" could be a real "game changer"!



Regardless...nothing ventured....nothing gained!

Two ways I'm seeing...one is with a desalinator. The other, I've READ, is through the use of an enema. Supposedly the water can permeate/be absorbed through the intestines while the salt is discarded...or something along those lines. Do I have a bottle of fleet or tubing in my preps for such a purpose...no. Because I haven't seen the ocean in about 12 years, unfortunately, and if it made it's way a few hundred miles to me keeping myself hydrated anally would be least of my concerns at that point...

Threw out all of my old Nickel-metal hydride rechargeable batteries and replaced them with 24 AA and 16 AAA Sanyo eneloop batteries, plus two chargers.

Worked with a Ham buddy over the weekend to do some 'mods' to our radios. Gained some pretty slick SHTF capabilities. Built a 10m wire diople that's hanging in my living room

Worked out for the first time since about May

Have you done a pre-filing patent search yet?

Let me know if you need help with your search. I'm an IP analyst and have access to real IP search tools and multi-country databases (not just google patents which has only 10% of what's actually out there)

Sucessfully fired some rounds yesterday that I reloaded using the 'system' below. I don't know if this is a real S&P item but over in GTR the fellows went down the "Lowes/Zombie" reloading road for some reason.



YMMV

No pre-filing patent search..

..1st order of business is a working prototype.

As you know...much has changed recently concerning "first-to-invent" vs "first to file".

My business partner in this endeavor has a patent attorney (also an engineer) lined up if & when we get to that point.

I would guess a provisional patent application would be submitted then.


And I appreciate your offer...I will run it by my partner when he gets back from Dubai next week.


My last patent search involved sifting thru maybe 10 CD's of patent filings..

..not fun!

I just set up another Dillon 550 and loaded a few hundred 44 mags to break it in.

Now I have one 550 for small primers and one for large primers always ready to load.

Still need to set up a Square Deal that has been sitting on a shelf for quite some time.

Desalinator. A personal unit can be purchased for $1000 or less.

I used to work on swordfishing boats, among others.

On the sword boats we had large scale desalinators to produce fresh water ice for cooling and freezing our catch and/or bait. We also had squid jigging machines to catch the bait and the ocean provided food.

Our sea time was limited only by the amount of deisel fuel we could carry, which on a 90 foot vessel was the equvilent of about 45 days worth at continous operation.

I'll pass on the enema bag.
