@HeatherKayTracy Ghillie instructional:

1. Army Surplus (or online like Rothco) purchase a [woodland] camouflage blouse and trouser.
@HeatherKayTracy 2. Craft store, purchase a fishing net.
@HeatherKayTracy 3. Craft store, purchase RIT dye. Get earth tones only, and only greens, yellows, browns. Do not get black.
@HeatherKayTracy 4. Feed or Farm store, purchase "gunny sacks" (Burlap bags). Most carry coffee. They are large.
@HeatherKayTracy 5. Cut ends/edges off burlap. Pull threads apart till you have several fist full. Dye each group in a tote or something you do not mind being stained. Use colors that blend in with the [background] of your area. If more greens, use green, more brown, etc...
@HeatherKayTracy 6. Lay blouse, button side down, on ground. Lay netting on top of blouse. Measure out from nape of neck, to both shoulders to the lower back. Not hips. Cut net. Sew netting in intervals. If you want arms covered do the same, to the tricep and pinky side of forearm.
@HeatherKayTracy 7. Lay trousers, zipper side down, on ground. Lay netting on top of trousers. Measure from right hip to left hip. Measure from hip to hamstring. Cut net. Sew in intervals. If you want calves and tops of footwear covered do the same top calf to ankle.
@HeatherKayTracy 8. After burlap is dyed. (Let air dry for a few days) rinse out excess dye if desired. Separate into 3 strands. All 3 can be same color, or mix match. Take three strands and do a "ribbon loop" over the netting, pull tail through loop and cinch down on the netting. Fill entire -
@HeatherKayTracy 8 cont. netting, skipping every other or 2 squares in the net. Stagger the burlap, and colors. The most important thing is avoiding patterns. Break up of lines is imperative.
@HeatherKayTracy 9. If desired purchase a boonie or woodland "hat". Do the same to it, leaving the front open for your vision.

Always earth tones. Always match background. Hands and feet get you caught. Fast movement gets you caught.

Americans are angry, and tired. But I ask all my brothers and sisters, please, be patient a little longer. Fully exhaust the pen before you draw the sword. Shoulder the weight a little further. Once bloodshed begins, there is no going back. War is hell, and it will not be fought
/2 in some far, distant land. It'll be fought in your driveways, your streets, your neighborhoods. You won't know who is for you, or against you. Your food sources will stop, your medicines will stop, your amenities will stop. Life will change drastically. Are you prepared to
/3 exist in a world of violence, where there is no electricity? No flushing toilet or running water? Where your neighbor who has starving children will kill indiscriminately to keep them alive? Study warfare. Its a hard and brutal life. Death seeks you out. You will see the
