I would like to give my opinion of two of the products that you sell, Troy. I have used both the wise foods meal kits and the write in the rain notebooks. They are both great products!

Thank you very much for the input. I have sadly never made a sale though but the store is there. I shut down the payment processor about a year ago when I went off the grid and had no time to work on the store.

I hope to one day be selling my own souvenirs on the site.

I suppose you could say I have a survival/bug out vehicle in the works. I guess this is the place to post about it. It's not as cool as MOMT SJ, because I don't have a solar setup on it or anything like that. I just had the engine rebuilt. (about 40 miles on rebuild as of today) It's going back for a nice paint job and a few other modifications right now. I will post all the details upon completion. (1988 jeep wrangler YJ 4.2L, inline six, manual trans)

Yes please do share. And keep us posted as you work on it. I love the SJ. It is an honor to be able to see it in person all the time.

This was the rustyness before we started the bodywork. I will get some new shots. Some of the photos are on my google+ page. I will post everything here. I need to get some shots under the hood. I will post the entire parts build sheet and anything else I can think of.

Now you are probably asking "What makes this a survival or bug out jeep and not just a jeep?" You will see, friends. You will see.

It's not all shiny with gobs of chrome, but it's right where it counts.
