Unchainedpreppers Morale Patch - Congratulations
« on: July 17, 2014, 04:49:17 PM »
Unchainedpreppers has been helping like-minded preppers attain their Freedom Through Self-Reliance since June, 2013. To celebrate this one year anniversary, PREPCOM wants to reward forum members who have posted 500 or more posts. How we decided to do that is through the issuing of a morale patch.

                     

The patch is embroidered and comes with a hooked Velcro back so you can proudly wear your Freedom Through Self-Reliance on your blouses' Velcro shoulder boards, hat or chest rig.

The Unchainedprepper morale patch will also be available for sale to the 500+ club if you would like additional patches to adorn your entire “battle rattle.”

PREPCOM will be notifying 500+ Unchainedprepper forum members by PM on August 1, 2014 for the correct mailing address of your morale patch.

Stay tuned for additional morale patches to come…

PREPCOM

Are they available for purchase to the under 500 club?  I would love to have a couple but do not want to have to do 450 "great idea, I'll have to try that" posts.

Great question Nemo. In short, no.

The Board (PREPCOM) wanted to have a way of recognizing our more prolific forum posters from June 2013- July 2014.

In August, a list of Unchainedpreppers morale patches will be announced based on DYI articles posted, 1,000 plus posters and general patches for sale.

If you or any other forum member has some design thoughts, we would love to hear/see them.

Thanks Nemo of asking the question.

Just to clarify on a couple of things...

    These patches will continue to be available to anyone who reaches a 500+ post count from this point forward. PREPCOM wants to encourage participation from all UP members, and wishes to reward contributions to the community. There are more patches coming, as JohnyMac has stated. Aside from one or two more post count-related patches, the rest should revolve around more specific criteria, such as an individual's quality of contributions. They are awards of recognition to anyone (old or new) who regularly contributes essential and excellent informative posts that without a doubt positively affect the entire forum.

Can't add anything more, other than to say, GET POSTING and contribute kick-ass informationology to the forum. We all win.  :thumbsup:

PREPCOM has sent individual emails asking for 500+ forum members addresses to send out the morale patch. I (johnyMac) have received some questions about PERSEC and this is what I am doing and my plan.

I have an excel spreadsheet with all of the eligible forum members listed on it. Once I receive the members mailing address I put it on the spreadsheet. When I send the patch or subsequent additional patches I will let the forum member receiving the patch know.

When the forum member receives their patch (s) I am asking that the forum member send me a "got-it" email and I will purge their name and address from the excel file.

NOBODY other than I will have access to your info.  I hope I have answered some of your questions on this matter.  :cheers:

Sadly there is no way for members to receive the patch without revealing an address, they could use a PO Box, but other than that they will have to live with it or forget about the patch, there isn't much we can do about it.

There is another way. PM me and I will send you my address. Then just drop a snail mail letter/card to me and I will send the patch to where ever you want me to send it.

Here are some other options:

> Send me a work address with your real name or a fictitious one
> Send me an address of a relative or neighbor
> As APX wrote, "they could use a PO Box" IMO, everybody should have a USPS PO Box anyway. They are cheap,
    about $68- a year or $34- for 6 months in my neck of the woods. I have one.
> Last, you could always take APX's series of classes in the COMMUNICATIONS section of the forum. The you
    can share your key with me and send your address coded.  ;)

Let's be honest here...you frequent pro-gun and prepping websites. The government already has you on a list, and knows all your basic information. I just sent mine via PM. I haven't done anything to warrant being persecuted thus far   and am thus only mildly concerned about strangers getting my address. I trust JMac,  so no worries there for me. YMMV.

 :lmfao: TG!

Actually I am a closet Scientologist and will appear at your address and try to hook you up to one of those machines.
 :lmfao:

Funny story: When we moved to Seattle in '80 we lived in a very nice apartment complex in Bellevue, WA. Each unit in the complex had four apartments. Two downstairs and two above the below apartments and each apartment had their own entrance.

Well the above apartment, catty-cornered to ours, an interesting couple lived there. The guy was a pimp, drug dealer and his significant other was one of the whores he ran.

Several times a week two white shirted guys with black ties and black trousers would show up with a black hard sided suitcase and walk up the outside stairs to the afor mentioned neighbors apartment.

We always thought they were Mormon's until one day we heard panicked pounding on our front door. I looked through the peephole and there stood our neighborhood hooker. I opened up the door and she rushed in she said, "close the door...Fast!"

Then she put here index finger to her lips and motioned for MrsMac and I to be quite.

About 2 minutes after the arrival of our new friend, we watched the two afor mentioned guys go up the steps and knock on her door. This went on for a couple of minutes until they left. At which time our neighbor told us they were Scientologists and they were there with some gismo to hook up to her.

We later learned that she had kicked them out on several other occasions but they keep coming back. Which gives a whole new meaning to..."Their here."

They're Here

Nice is relative when you are 24 years old and came from a rather volatile area.  :gunner:

MrsMac and I lived in a three story high "projects type" apartment in North Philly before we moved to Washington state. We would bomb for roaches on Monday and by Wednesday they would be back because the folks in the apartment below us had just bombed their apartment.

We lived with a mild level of fear for our safety so I kept an old Savage shotgun locked and loaded with 00 buck just in case in the corner by the bed and carried a handgun outside of the apartment with no CCW as I was on probation for something else at the time. Another story...

MrsMac and I moved from their in 1980 to Washington State because we had nothing to loose. Especially since a local heroin dealer (Crazy Harry) had put a contract out on my life two months earlier.  :hiding: Yet another story for another day.

So when you moved from that kind of drama to a squeaky clean area like Bellevue, WA. (Just outside of Seattle) into an apartment that didn't have cockroaches, a land lord that cared about his tenants and only a few Washington State hoodlums (Pussy's really) that were afraid of a few bible thumpers (In Philly we wouldn't ask them not to come back - We would give them reason not to come back) it was nirvana to us.

We both had real jobs with just a little retailing on the side for fun and profit. Heck we were feeling like a King and Queen.  :dancingBanana:  :dance:

Remember TG, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  ;)

PREPCOM sent out approximately 30 congrat PM's concerning the morale patch awards for 500+ posts. Only seven (7) folks have responded.

Disappointed in Rhode Island  :'(

Yeah, but they were sent a PM. Typically a PM notification will show up on their regular email account.

If I don't receive anymore responses, I will email them direct.  :D

I check my email daily, multiple times mostly, but that's on a smart phone. With just a computer, I go sometimes a week or more without looking at it.
