Preparedness Notes for Tuesday — March 2, 2021

March 2nd, 1836, Texas declared its independence from Mexico. Today is coincidentally also the birthday of Sam Houston.

Today we present a review written by our Field Gear Editor, Pat Cascio.


  1. i was only in Texas once at the Dallas airport for about 2 hours…
    i do have family there…
    always wanted to tour Texas…
    i am a true blue Dallas cowboy fan since 1979…

  2. There is a growing movement here in the Lone Star that would like to see this state declare its independence once again.
    The big question is- Can the regular citizens of Texas overcome the ‘swamp culture’ in our own legislature?

    1. Matt has a valid point and I’m sure many will simply obey, simply out of fear and intimidation. Gov is nothing more than force, driven by fear, intimidation and the barrel of a gun.
      The primary reason this works is because of the “fear” of being out in the cold, alone, not connected, not allowed to be among the rest on social media.
      Ask yourself; OK no social media, how did the human race survive without it for all these thousands of years.
      If you get let loose from a job, you probably didn’t really like it anyway, get another, start your own & give the last employer some competition. Everyone can succeed at whatever they want according to the effort they put into it.

      I have the friends I have and want not because of some silly social media platform, but because of who they are and who I am. And if asked, they will gladly bring a shovel……..
