Lessons from James
When You Are Moving A Lot of Supplies
  • Your #1 concern is going to be safety.
  • It will be a very hard road. You will be contending with debris and blazing your own trail.
  • You won't be able to do this quietly.
  • Have your rifle ready and pointed at anyone who approaches.
  • Train with your rifle so you can hit your mark.
You Must Be Able to Read People!
  • Identify what an individual's body language is telling you.
  • A lot can be told from how people care for themselves.
  • Point your rifle at the individual who appears to be in charge. Watch the others closely
How Do You Rationalize Taking Another Life In a Wartime or Survival Environment


  • You have to be confident that you made that decision for your own survival.
  • When all is said is done don't look back, move on.
  • Get the right mental attitude. You're going to win or you're not.
