Scouting rural area

Preppers, regardless of what you are doing, Operations Security (OPSEC) should always be at the top of your list.

Maxpedition Condor-ii hiking

The Maxpedition Condor II is one of my favorite go-to and overnight warm weather packs. Over the decades I have accumulated a wide assortment of backpacks.
