Default Southside Virginia Here


I'm involved in helping a lady farmer friend develop her 84 acre abandoned tobacco farm amongst the amish farms and rolling hills of southcentral virginia near the north carolina border. She is semi-off-grid and has a couple off-gridder enthusiasts coming to live there and help get the place on its feet. There's gardens and chickens and donkeys and a rodeo rescue horse in a secluded mostly wooded spot near Lynchburg. A guy is there who wants to go goldmining and he's reburbishing a shorty school bus to a live-in rv.

I also am involved in another farm where we raise spectacular Clydesdale Horses and just had a new foal 4 1/2 months ago...that alone has changed my life. This second farm also has goats, a llama, a great pyrenees guard dog...we are all going off grid soon so this is an appropriate endeavor as collapse and/or solar flares or something manmade takes the grid down...NASA is even pleading with it's 20,000 employees to prepare. Anybody near Lynchburg...South Boston...Clarksville...Oxford...Raleigh????

Chief of NASA sent out plea to all 20,000 NASA employees to prepare...didn't say "prepare" for went viral and raises questions.
Hope I did the link right...if not go to YouTube and search "NASA chief prepare"...just like the extremely odd FEMA tv commercial...have you seen it?? Where the family starts flying upside down in their house and they then grab a GO BAG to escape?? What this is depicting is a POLE this is a very disconcerting tv commercial which I've seen several times. Are they trying to tell us something but in a subliminal, non-panicky way????? Many strange things afoot.
