"Good days, bad days. Up days, down days. Sad days, happy days--but never a boring day on this job. You do what God has called you to do. You show up, you put one foot in front of another, you get on the rig and you do the job, which is a mystery and a suprise. You have no idea when you get on that rig, no matter how big the call, no matter how small, you have no idea what God's calling you to do.
"You love this job. We all do. What a blessing that is. A difficult, difficult job, and God calls you to it, and he gives you a love for it, so that a difficult job will be well done."
-Father Mychal Judge

Father Judge was killed the following day, Sept 11, 2001.

I have been studying sources of survival information for the last year and a half or so, hoping to put together a program for our church along those lines. They ARE rebuilding the Teton Dam after all!!

Whether you keep your bail-out bag in an armored SUV and buy MREs buy the ton or ever had an inkling of a notion of a fleeting thought about survival, Greg Davenport is your man. He is a retired military SERE (survival, evasion, resistance, escape) instructor and now trains in the private world. His books and website,, are incredibly useful.
