Well, ...
Here are a couple examples of forts used by the Corps of Discovery. (ca 1804-1806)

and, ...
Searching for "Lexis and Clark Forts" at Bing: Images will return some other images, not provided from the Center of Military History.
Needless to say, double walls with an infill of soil and/or stones would improve the ballistic protection of these 'forts.'

Dinesh D'Souza says racism is not the cause of black failure
Uncommon Knowledge: White America Is 'Coming Apart'
The only one that merits a mention isDzino. Memories of a Freedom Fighter by Wilfred Mhanda, and even it is replete with sour grapes for Mugabe and his ZANU henchmen.) Some quite factual books about the war that I can recommend are: Fireforce: One Man's War in the Rhodesian Light InfantryThe Saints: The Rhodesian Light InfantryA Martyr SpeaksThe Bush War In Rhodesia: The Extraordinary Combat Memoir of a Rhodesian Reconnaissance SpecialistShadows of a Forgotten Past: To the Edge with the Rhodesian SAS and Selous ScoutsPamwe Chete, and The Rhodesian War: A Military History. 21st Century survivalists can learn some valuable lessons by studying the history of this conflict, in which isolated farms often had to provide their own defense against the "terrs."

September 22nd in the birthday of the late Lieutenant Colonel Ronald Reid-Daly (born 1928, died August 9, 2010) who founded and commanded the Rhodesian Selous Scouts. His history of the Selous Scouts, titled Pamwe Chete, is a fascinating to read but very hard-to-find book.

When I moved to "OPSEC" I quit drinking sodas and fruit juices.
Well, ...
Plain water quickly gets boring, after drinking a soda every day, so I started drinking tea, especially at night.
Katniss was very thoughtful and packed me a couple boxes of decaffeinated green tea for me to drink.
Well, ...
I want home over the Christ's Mass break. Needless to say, every time we went to a restaurant; I had tea with my meal.
Fast forward a couple of days, I went back to my home away from home. That night, I got a mild headache that was gone in the morning.
Needless to say, I had been drinking regular tea, so I figured I had had a caffeine headache.

One of the things I eat is soup. It is easy to make. Open a can, pop it in a pan and heat.
Well, ...
I was making soup for lunch, at work, and quickly realized I had forgotten my can opener : - (
Lucky me, we had a can opener, at work : - )
Now, ...
This can opener is one of those highend models, very sweet!
Definitently not one of the inexpensive can openers, I have been buying at the local Charity Store for 50¢ on average.
Of course, I now have about four can openers for about $2.00. Cool, especially since inexpensive can openers are running about $2.00 a piece.
Barn Coat
Speaking of saving money and Charity Stores, I picked up a green L.L. Bean barn coat for $9.00, last night. Sweet!!!!!!
I had been looking for a 'work' coat since it's kind'a cold here. This coat will normally 'live' in the car.
So, ...
If I ever forget my coat, or need a spare, I'll have one. Plus, I can use it in a pinch for work or chores.
