When It's Time To Change...

You've Got To Rearrange...

Of course, I take today's title from a classic episode of The Brady Bunch.  I think it is time for If It Hits The Fan to change.  Over the past 2 and a half years, you have taken time to come here and see what I have to say, over a quarter million times.  Unfortunately, that has taken a lot of time, about 2-3 hours a day.  With my long commute, I'm away from home almost 12 hours a day, and I just can't keep it up.  I need to devote more time to my own preps.  I want to spend more time with my wife.  I want to shoot my guns more, and shoot more video for the YouTube channel.

I've also got some other things in the works.  I have the opportunity to write some articles for one of the survivalism magazines out there, as well as a publisher that wants me to submit a draft of a book.  There just aren't enough hours in the day.  On top of all of that, since the Sandy Hook attack, my professional life has taken off and responsibilities have increased at work.  Soon, I'll have some big news in that area.

If It Hits The Fan isn't going anywhere.  I'll still get some content out to you once a week or so.  It's just that I've got to change my focus and priorities.

I'm really grateful to all of you who have made If It Hits The Fan such a success, and my sponsors are truly amazing.

Times are going to tough in 2013.  Our economy is collapsing... our rights are being stolen away... the flu season looks like it is going to be nasty...  natural disasters are striking in new and severe ways.  Preparedness is a valuable life skill and life style.  There are some fantastic web resources out there to help us all learn how to improve our skills and build community.  I'm hoping that you'll continue to include If It Hits The Fan as one of your resources, but check out the others as well.

Thanks for an amazing ride for these past 2 and a half years, and I look forward to more with you.



  1. hey, you gotta do what you gotta do.good luck...i was thinking, always dangerous. with the sheriffs crying about manpower etc. what says the armed presence in school has to be sworn officers, which are expensive to pay and train? why couldn't they be professional security, under the pay and direction of the school system? cheaper, and with propper selection just as good or better. that would be right up my alley, and i suspect many other vets would like to suppliment their pensions a little. you won't find a group more dedicated under fire.

  2. RR - I think many districts would take you up on that offer. Certainly no need for only PD

  3. Don, good luck in your new endeavors. Your plate looks like it will be full. Thanks for all of your help and advice.

    1. Thanks, Joe. I hope folks are listening up there. Feel free to call me if I can help out.
