I recently went back to my roots in West Virginia, visiting there for the first time since I started FloridaHillbilly.com. I stayed with friends from high school, folks that have consistently proven themselves to be worthy of that short list of folks that you know you can call […]

In survival training, many instructors refer to the “Rule of Threes”.
 
Here they are, as taught to me by Hank, of Green Earth Survival School:
