Range Camp

Latest Addition to our Preps! #Camp_Liberty

Sorry for the delay in getting a new blog post out to all of you. First of all, my Podcast is on hold as we have been super busy with all of the life things that are happening. Don’t worry, our family is doing great!

As some of you may know, we had Camp 216 for about 4 years and sold her in May 2018 to a wonderful couple from Mt Pleasant, Utah where she was built. They love her and have had several adventures to Florida and more!

The process to get our new camp, started back at that time with the same wonderful family that built Camp 216! Peak Mtn Camps opened in 2017 with Mike, Weston, Kyler and Dave Wheeler designing, building and selling the very best camps made in the USA!

We ordered #Camp_Liberty in March 2019 and we picked her up in October 2019. From the first moment that I walked in the door, I knew that we had made the right choice with our new Camp!

Why Camp Liberty you might ask? Liberty to go where we want to go, when we want to go!

Why do they call them Camps? Great question! These travel trailers are modeled after the Sheep Camps that go back to the 1870’s. These camps were originally used on Sheep and Cattle Ranches for the commissary, animal food, storage and to house the sheep herder or rancher while on the land. Here is an old camp that we saw on the way to pick up our Liberty!

We had to stop and check out this old camp! Like #Camp_Liberty, this camp had a wood burning stove, bed, small kitchen but it was really beaten up and could use a good cleaning.

Peak Mtn Camps is located in Spring City, Utah just outside of Mt Pleasant, Utah where we purchased Camp 216. The sweet thing about ordering a new camp, was we got to choose all of our colors like buying a new home. Counter tops, floors, walls and so on!

Big Red and Camp Liberty on our way to Yellowstone National Park!

Having almost two weeks on the road with our camp was simply the best maiden voyage that we could have possibly planned. Park City Utah, Casper Wyoming, Buffalo and Sheridan Wyoming, Yellowstone National Park, Twin Falls Idaho and then back to Mt View Ranch in Southern Oregon. Wow! The sights that we got to see and the people we got to meet were simply amazing!

We just got to spend a few more nights in Liberty at the Ranch too! Have more questions? Follow along with #Camp_Liberty on our Instagram page and new YouTube Channel as well!

Well, It's Been Awhile!!!

Sorry, that I haven't posted on the Blog in awhile but we have had a lot going on lately. We traveled to Salt Lake City, UT for Preppercon, last week, sold our beloved Camp 216 and will be placing an order for a new one in July. Like I said a lot going on!

Well, today I had my 3rd infusion of Chemotherapy for Breast Cancer with one more to go in June. Follow that with 6 weeks of Radiation Therapy and I will be done. Here is my photo from this morning! Notice the hair!!

Feeling pretty good so far and keeping busy with Amp-3, planting vegetables in our garden, hanging flower baskets and feeding hummingbirds. This is what you do when you have to be pretty close to home.

David has been down at the ranch, mowing and weed whacking. Check this video out! 

Granted this video is a bit old, that is because David needs to shoot some new ones when he's down at the ranch this week! I will get on him about this.

Are you signed up for our mailing list? Why not?? We keep you up to date about happenings with Amp-3, Sales we might be having and classes that David will be teaching! Sign up here! 

 

Well, that's all for this week! Let me know what you think by adding a comment! Amp-3 is here to help you with your preparedness needs. Thank you for following along!

Happy New Year!

Wow! 2018 is already here, where did 2017 go? So many important events happened in the past year so let’s reflect on just a few....

America elected a new President, Donald J. Trump! Some of you may be angry about this but personally, he will take our Country back in the direction that our Founders set forth for our Nation. Hopefully, everyone has more $$ in their pockets in 2018 and less in the Governments.

The Natural Disasters that hit our country and Puerto Rico were so devastating, the many are still trying to put their lives back together. A good friend of ours Todd Albi (Silverfire Stoves) was in Puerto Rico and here are a few images from his trip. https://www.silverfire.us/home

Looking forward to cooking and surrounded with free fuel in yard from storm.  Why buy fuel?

Our Government needs to help these people and we are but we have to do more. They are estimating that it will be 8 months before power is fully restored. What would your plan be?? How do you get through something like this? We all must think about that and get provisions in place to help our family and our neighbors. No one can do this alone....

Over the past year 2017, I blogged about my 100 Essentials  https://www.amp-3.net/resources/  

I hope that you followed along. Amp-3 's biggest mission is education for all of you out there. Getting prepared for whatever might come our way is our goal and our duty. We love what we do and the people that we get to meet make this very satisfying and rewarding. If you missed any of the past Blog posts, please scroll down and there they are!

Some of you may be struggling right now or maybe loss of love one over the past year. Please remember that your never alone. Reach out and ask for help to a friend, relative, or pastor. They are there for you and always will be. 

The year 0f 2017 will be in our memory banks for a very long time with good memories, sad memories and some bad memories but together we can make it through anything.

Hopefully, all of you have had gains in your Retirement Accounts and 401K's with the surge in the Stock Market over the past year as well. This only means you need to be diversified in your investments. 

This brings up the need to have Gold, Silver and extra $$ on hand in case of emergency. I suggest that you have a minimum of $100 per person in small bills $1, $5 and $10. The more you have the better your situation if something were to happen to our power grid. Power Outages can be for a few minutes or months like in Puerto Rico. You justnever know...

For the Ranch, this past summer we purchased a Woodsman 505 wood boiler on Craigslist. Installing one of these will save us a lot of $$$.

 

David, Steve (My Brother) and I, went to pick this up and needed a little help. Watch this video!

Super excited to have this installed to heat the new home and barn. The projects never seem to end when your developing a Ranch. David would love to have one of the Skid Steers but at $72,000 it's not even on the list of my 100 Essentials...

I know that I have mentioned it before but one to the BEST investments that we have ever made was our Camp. Mike and Weston Wheeler, the builders of our Camp are working on opening a NEW Facility in Mt. Pleasant, UT and will be building Camps once again. 

Interested in a Range Camp like Camp #216? Call (435) 262-0601 and ask for Mike Wheeler

 

This Camp it totally off GRID and it's perfect for the Ranch but it's our Travel Trailer as well. This past year we went to Yosemite National Park and stayed in our Camp outside the park in Oakhurst. We loved driving though the Gold Country once again and antiquing along the way. Very Hard to find a place to park Red and the Camp though on this Winding & Narrow Road. Would have loved to stop at a few more shops but just not possible. 

Fall brings may leaves to the Ranch so clean up is pretty consistent. Nothing is better then the smell of burning wood and leaves, which we have an abundance of. There really is something peaceful about standing over a fire, watching it burn and adding more to the pile as it burns down. 

Before Winter turns to Spring, Summer to Fall, and the holidays once again come speeding around the corner, let’s all take a moment to consider the months ahead. Time has a way of marching ever onward and it’s up to all of us to get the most from those precious moments, whether you’re working a hundred head of cattle or simply need to pick up pellets for your wood stove. We believe it’s not what we say, but what we do that matters most. 

This has been a busy year for us and were already gearing up for 2018. In the year ahead, I will be adding several guest bloggers to my weekly blog. Are you interested in adding information to my Blog? Do you have something your passionate about to help my readers with their preparedness? Then I hope to hear from you! Send me a message on my Blog and I will get in touch with you. This isn't about one person but a network of people who want to reach as many as possible and get prepared. 

That’s why you’ll find us here, enjoying the ride and working hard to make 2018 a year to remember. Let me know what you think and if your wanting your name added as a contributor. 

Wishing you and your family a very Happy New Year and May 2018 be the best year yet! Looking forward to hearing from you!!
