Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #211

Greetings and welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #211. Is it just me or does the calendar seem to be on speed dial right now? Where is time going so fast? Seriously, in a blink we will be turning the month and May will be here. Soon we will be in full gardening mode and summer will be over. Is it possible the one world government is spinning the clock faster to reach their desired date and year? Just kidding.

I had a visit to the Cumberland Plateau to teach another class on Sunday. Before training started, I got to meet up with Festus and Mrs. Festus and another Patriot sister to enjoy breakfast which included.....drum roll.....biscuits and gravy. That always starts the day off right. This is great and it gives us some face-to-face time to chat on open and pending topics for HFS. I'm starting to feel at home with this private group and appreciate their invites and hospitality each time. Each trip I meet more new families who are waking up to the problems around us and wanting to build self-reliance into their daily lives. Like I shared with them in class, applying effort and a changed mindset is the initial step to the motivation needed to achieve a complete preparedness package. It takes planning, time, funds, and the right mindset from the start. Thanks to everyone for the time shared together.

Another busy week preparing for an all-day training session in the Roxboro, NC area with like-minded individuals seeking to grow upon their preparedness knowledge. This is a return trip to Roxboro from a year ago. I always get excited for return trips and spending time with HFS sisters and brothers who are working hard to expand their knowledge to push their preparedness efforts to a greater level. I want to thank the team who put this visit together and their hospitality for hosting Ms. Lucy and myself for the weekend. Thank you. I'm proud of you for your efforts and growth in preparedness the past few years.

When this PENL edition post we will be in Roxboro, NC for the weekend so hopefully technology works to once again post the newsletter on time. I hope to stop off in WV to visit family for a day enroute back to East TN for the night and then head back to Huntsville, AL midweek. Life is busy indeed. So when folks tell me they are too busy to prepare I get a good chuckle.

Let us move along....

HFS Thursday Zoom Session - Author Paul Valone, Anti-Rules for Radicals was our Zoom guest for Zoom session #107. It was great having Mr. Valone with us for the evening to discuss his book and additional information on changing gun laws potentially impacting the 2nd Amendment. HFS appreciates Mr. Valone spending time with the HFS family.
