Re: 2018 JANUARY - What did you do to prep this week/month?

Went and got more wood and supplies this morning for the goat shed, then had to get it all unloaded from the truck before I could get back to work. Got more work done on the new goat shed/milk house, but ended up getting pulled off of that project to help husband with his fencing project. Hopefully,...

Re: What would you do first?

We went in together with our oldest on some acreage in a more rural area and moved from our place in town (can't sell it at this point, so we're renting it out to cover the majority of the mortgage payment. And yes, building the place up, with animal housing and everything else that needs to be done...

Re: Prep Concerns for Korean 'Conflict'

Part of my "prep" for barter is raising to eat not just enough for our own needs, but to be able to sell/barter our excess. For example, I sell/trade the extra eggs when the chickens are at full production. (I also hatch eggs to replenish my flock; and extra roosters and older, no longer p...

Re: Keeping looters away in cities and suburbs

Fences lined with thorny bushes and prickly pear bushes, and a locked gate. Plus dogs, motion-activated solar-powered lights on the approaches, and, of course, various other...er...deterrents. Son-in-law was a combat engineer...he's already planned on making a few "surprises" if things com...

Re: Lessons from Hawaii attack warning

If nothing else, the "faux pas" served to show them how NOT prepared they are. Maybe it will motivate at least a few to get off their duffs and DO something towards preparedness. Probably a pipedream, I know. We can always hope.

Re: 2018 JANUARY - What did you do to prep this week/month?

Got bees ordered for Spring delivery--last year, the wind blew the top off the hive shortly after I had gotten them, sot hey all left. This time, I bought a large ratchet strap that will co under and up over the top of the whole assembly, so that the wind will NOT be blowing the lid off this time. A...

Re: 2018 JANUARY - What did you do to prep this week/month?

Started out the morning clearing the area in the "canning kitchen" where the woodburning cookstove will go, so that it's ready for when we have a crew to move it. While I was doing that, husband was on the tractor dragging the area where the chicken coops USED to be. After that, we worked ...

Re: Are you really prepared?

It's Murphy's Law"...the "stuff" will ALWAYS happen at the WORST POSSIBLE TIME! Which is why we need to get OUR "stuff" together ASAP! It is NOT possible to have EVERYTHING done at once, but if you start with the most critical things first, then you at least have a good star...

Re: Re-Purposing Small Containers

I use the containers that the Crystal Light tubes come in for storing seeds--I don't have to worry about seed packets getting wet, especially when I take them out to the garden to plant. We also wash out and save ice cream containers for storing nails, screws, and such, and don't have boxes falling ...

Re: Suggestion.. Bartering?

The best way to prepare for that is to get your barter networks set up NOW, rather than waiting until AFTER the excrement hits the oscillating device. We've already got a barter network started in my area, and are always looking to expand it.

Re: H3N2 Flu ... Pandemic Potential

It's definitely here in AZ. My husband had it, as did several co-workers. The local Drs and hospital have been seeing a lot of cases. Fortunately, I did NOT get it. Since I am allergic to the vaccine, I increased my daily dosage of elderberry syrup to boost my immune system. So far, it's working for...

Re: Recipe/Food Binder - Share your recipes & tips

Ooohhh....I haven't made baked oatmeal in YEARS! I used a different recipe, but still..YUMMY! Plus, it's a lot easier taking a square to eat on the run than it is to try to eat a bowl of oatmeal while you're driving down the road!
