(Grand Canyon at South Rim – larger image)
The Grand Canyon is one of the Earth’s most powerful, inspiring landscapes and overwhelms our senses when standing there at the rim.
While a picture of the Grand Canyon might itself appear remarkable (I snapped the image above during yesterday’s visit), when you physically stand there looking out across miles and miles of layered colored rock and jutting pinnacles in various stages of massive erosion – with the Colorado River doing its thing down at the bottom, the initial reaction can be overwhelming to the senses. Especially the first time (which it was for Mrs.J).
The sheer magnitude of what you’re looking at, almost “does not compute”. It’s an interesting phenomenon actually, and one can draw parallels to other BIG and unusual experiences that one might suddenly encounter in life.
Meteor Crater: Winslow, Arizona

Wow, just wow…
We recently visited the meteor crater near Winslow, Arizona (for the purpose of this post!) and it was an awesome visual reminder of the devastating potential from asteroids (becoming meteors when they enter our atmosphere) smashing into our planet.

I was recently emailed the question,
I am working on a paper which is based around EMP attack probabilities, and what to do if one were to occur. What would you suggest to do in such a situation for someone who is not a prepper? Also, for the prepper, what would you suggest they stock up on in this scenario?
Here’s my response:
As I drove from east to west today across the state of New Mexico on our current trip, Mrs.J and I were talking. One of the subjects had to do with the political and ideological division in this country, and how there are incredible and powerful efforts underway to undermine the nationalist movement within the United States.
Reported yesterday, North Korea issues SHOCK war warning: ‘If a single bullet is fired, we WILL nuke the US’
“NORTH Korea has pledged to launch a nuclear strike on the US if a “single bullet is fired” as US forces flood the Korean Peninsula.” (dailystar.co.uk)
Many media outlets are reporting on the most recent (crazy) developments from North Korea as they launch yet another ballistic missile test.
Kim Jong-un’s rogue state is bringing us ever closer to intervention and unknown fallout from what may come. The question is, if there is intervention, what will China do, or any of the rest?
I recently received an email from the “American Redoubt” outlining the possible and perhaps likely scenario that would take place following a Trump assassination.
I have thought about the potential horrible consequences myself, particularly given some of the vocal left (many within Hollywood and the music industry) who are actually publicly calling for his assassination (why are they not being prosecuted?!).
While I do believe that we are currently in Civil War II, it is my opinion that if such a terrible event (Trump assassination) were to occur, that it may indeed ignite a hot Civil War II.

Here’s what I mean…
This weekly post is an open-forum (any topic) to voice your thoughts, opinions, or questions for others. Lets hear about what you’ve been doing this week for preparedness, or perhaps what you have done to convert your ‘fiat’ (paper) currency into tangible assets 😉
The more who comment, the more that’s spread around for the benefit of all…
