Ask yourself a serious question: have you ever thought, as part of your disaster preparedness plans, about stashing away some valuable survival items in a remote location that you can then access later when the need arises?<br /><br />This is exactly what a survival cache is: a simple hiding place of valuables that you will come back to later to retrieve. For example, should you ever need to quickly bug out from your home in the event of a large scale disaster but can’t bring any survival items with you, you could retrieve your cache to access those items instead. <br /><br />Contrary to what many people think, survival caches are not just for preppers and survivalists. Many everyday people have hidden caches containing food and basic survival items as well, and a few of the victims of natural disasters such as Hurricane Katrina were able to show just how useful it was to have supplies stored away at strategic locations when they were forced to evacuate their homes.<br /><br />Many outdoorsmen (and women) will bury supplies at a cabin, campsite, or hunting location in a remote area to access at a later date as well. Since many of these remote places can be vulnerable to landslides, floods, or heavy rain and snowfall, having a cache of items available for you to access could mean the difference between life and death. <br /><br />In essence, the wisdom behind the survival cache is that it allows you to resupply yourself should you need to evacuate your property and community in the event of a catastrophe. <br /><br />That being said, there is still far more to the survival cache than just filling up a box with some critical survival items and burying it in a remote location without thinking twice about it. <br /><br />Just the opposite, a survival cache requires careful thought in terms of determining why you want to build it, the items that you want to put in it, how you will build it, where you will hide it and retrieve it, and so on. <br /><br />Fortunately, this book is going to outline a very simple yet effective eight step process for building and hiding your very own survival cache (or caches). The specific questions that these steps are going to answer for you include the following:<br /><br />-Why should you build a survival cache?<br />-Which exact items should you store in your cache?<br />-What kind of container should you use for your cache?<br />-How can you modify your container so it will keep your stored items safe from the outside elements such as moisture and humidity?<br />-Where are some good locations for hiding your cache?<br />-How can you hide your cache so you know no one else will find it (either accidentally or purposefully)?<br />-How should you go about retrieving your cache?<br />-What are some additional tips that you can follow to ensure you are successful?<br /><br />Building and hiding a survival cache truly is a more in-depth topic than most people realize, but it is my hope that this book will break things down for you by walking you through each of the steps that you need to follow. <br />

L’histoire d’un ruisseau, même de celui qui naît et se perd dans la mousse, est l’histoire de l’infini. Ces gouttelettes qui scintillent ont traversé le granit, le calcaire et l’argile ; elles ont été neige sur la froide montagne, molécule de vapeur dans la nuée, blanche écume sur la crête des flots ; le soleil, dans sa course journalière, les a fait resplendir des reflets les plus éclatants ; la pâle lumière de la lune les a vaguement irisées ; la foudre en a fait de l’hydrogène et de l’oxygène, puis d’un nouveau choc a fait ruisseler en eau ces éléments primitifs. Tous les agents de l’atmosphère et de l’espace, toutes les forces cosmiques ont travaillé de concert à modifier incessamment l’aspect et la position de la gouttelette imperceptible ; elle aussi est un monde comme les astres énormes qui roulent dans les cieux, et son orbite se développe de cycle en cycle par un mouvement sans repos.<br /><br />

The Call of the Wildflower

Customer Reviews
THE “call of the wild,” where the love of flowers is concerned, has an attraction which is not the less powerful because it is difficult to explain. The charm of the garden may be strong, but it is not so strong as that which draws us to seek for wildflowers in their native haunts, whether of shore or water-meadow, field or wood, moorland or mountain. A garden is but a “zoo” (with the cruelty omitted); and just as the true natural history is that which sends us to study animals in the wilds, not to coop them in cages, so the true botany must bring man to the flower, not the flower to man. That the lovers of wildflowers--those, at least, who can give active expression to their love--are not a numerous folk, is perhaps not surprising; for even a moderate knowledge of the subject demands such favourable conditions as free access to nature, with opportunities for observation beyond what most persons command; but what they lack in numbers they make up in zeal, and to none is the approach of spring more welcome than to those who are then on the watch for the reappearance of floral friends.

The Narrative Of The 1970s Boston Red Sox

The culture of the Boston Red Sox changed starting with the 1968 season. The franchise was coming off a miracle pennant run—The Impossible Dream year of 1967. When those Red Sox fell just short of winning the World Series there were no recriminations and no talk of a jinx. It was through the ensuing decade, through the repeated frustrations of the 1970s Boston Red Sox, that the dynamic changed.<br /><br />Boston produced consistently good teams throughout the decade, the best sustained stretch of baseball New England had seen since the days when Babe Ruth still wore a Red Sox uniform. But they never won a World Series title and with the innocence of ‘67 in the rearview mirror, it wasn’t good enough.<br /><br />With each ensuing heartbreak the demands for the franchise to take the final step escalated, as did the willingness of pundits to come up with bizarre reasons for the failure to do so. The culture of Red Sox Nation that many of us grew up knowing and some us grew into loving—the futile pursuit of a title—was born.<br /><br />This blog compilation looks at each season in this era of 1968-80, The Heartbreak Decade of Boston Red Sox history. You’ll read about the following…<br /><br />*How Boston came off the 1967 pennant and established that they were no one-year wonder, continuing to play winning baseball, even if they were off the pace of the league’s elite. Those first four post-Impossible Dream years paved the way for the heartbreak of 1972 and the utter collapse of 1974.<br /><br />*The long-awaited return to postseason play in 1975, from winning the AL East with room to spare, to ending MLB’s great dynasty of the early 1970s to a heroic battle in the World Series that came up just one run short.<br /><br />*Injury-riddle disappointment in 1976 and losing a tough AL East race in 1977 set the stage for the worst heartbreak of all—blowing a big division lead against the Yankees and losing an epic one-game playoff in Fenway Park.<br /><br />*The gradual fade of 1979 and 1980. The Red Sox were still a winning team in those years, but it was apparent the window on winning a World Series had closed.<br /><br />Each of the following pieces is published on TheSportsNotebook.com and has been edited for this compilation to create a cohesive narrative about the Boston Red Sox of the 1970s. Read about all the key players, the biggest games—regular season and playoffs—that raised fans’ hopes and ultimately left them dashed. <br />
