Lately I have been doing a lot of talking about hunting… Probably because I have been doing a lot of hunting. I could just go off today about how the ducks were flying great 2 weeks ago, until the channel froze… Or talk about how waking up early to go do something before last call at the bar is actually just about the best time a guy can have when the weather gets cold. I could talk about how I spent the remainder of my vacation days (plus last weekend) installing a LVP floor in the living room for my wife. 5 days on my hands and knees pulling enough crown staples to fill a 16 oz. beer can, from the pad under the old carpet… In all reality, it is a survival story, being as if i didn’t install a new floor, my wife was destine to kill me. I live to hunt another day. But instead I decided to try to kill as many birds with one stone as possible.
We at PWP, Have to be pretty good at rationing our time. With houses, family’s,our day job’s and responsibilities, we have to find a happy balance between doing what we have to, and doing what we want to. You (I’m sure) and I both know how much that can suck. When The first snow flies in late October/ early November I think “RUT”, not “SNOW SHOVEL”. But, if I want to continue to stay happily married, concessions have to be made, My wife could care less about how falling/ stagnated low barometric pressure really turns on the bass bite, but she knows that it makes me happy and wants me to go. In so I realize that she would like a new floor and if I have to miss a couple days of prime migration… So be it.
I am not tactical, and I’m sorry. I know that the members of PWP are a varied crowd, from high country hillbillies to the tactics based preppers, and each of you has chosen to become apart of the PWP family for different reason (whatever your reasons, from the bottom of our hearts, we sincerely say thank you). That being said, I have a real strong personal belief that it is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, then to open your mouth and remove all doubt. I know a lot about ballistics, I know firearms, and I can understand the principles. I’m just not wired that way. To me almost all things can be traced back to hunting. Its about the stalk, about blending in with your surroundings, about always being ready, and about the mental preparedness to be able to pull the trigger when the chance arises. From dating to self defense I see it the same way. I wont be able to explain to you which is a better defensive pistol drill drill between the tri-lambda and Mozambique, I can explain them both, have shot them both, and can tell you how they relate to each other, but by no means am I an expert, and I don’t want to lead you astray. If you would like to have more blogs that are along those lines, drop us a note and we have some great minds here that would be more then happy to do a blog about them. I’ll just sit in the corner, reading dope charts, and wait until my 34 years of random knowledge is needed again. 🙂
Without you, there is no us. When we first started talking about Our hopes for Post World Patriot, we asked each other what would set us apart from the crowd and what we could share that every other website couldn’t. That is when we started to focus on the word “SHARE” were not talking tweets or re-tweats or Instagram, we were (and are) talking about creating relationships, and actually sharing personal knowledge. We have our skill sets and you do too, I don’t want to talk about things that you don’t care to learn about. So I cast my nets in hopes that someone would like to learn more or become a part of the conversation. I know that you are all experts at something, and with my history of being a chronic dabbler, I want to know everything about everything. Tell me what you know and tell me what you would like to learn. I can bet that if we throw enough topics around we can all learn something from each other. Skill sets over assets right?
