Re: Influenza

The flu is definitely here in my county. Just spent 6 hours in the ER with my husband last night. He ended up needing a breathing treatment, and a LARGE Prednisone tablet after he popped positive for influenza A, and we left (at 1 AM) with an inhaler and a prescription for more prednisone. So today,...

Re: One Second After

If I were at work, then I'd want my "Get Home Bag" (which has just about everything I'd need to get me home) and my "car pistol"

Re: December2017 - What Did You Do to Prep This Week?

Made arrangements with a fellow member of my church (who also lives just down the road a bit) for him to do the repair work on my cast iron/enamelware woodburning cookstove. It needs the oven box rebuilt, (the oven box is pretty much rusted out, but the rest is good, so it's salvageable, so will be ...

Re: December2017 - What Did You Do to Prep This Week?

Couldn't get on the last 3 days, so couldn't update...Got the last 2 roosters and their coop/run moved over next to the rest of the flock.

Also got another 100 pounds of oats...prepping against 2000 pounds of cranky mares if they don't get their oats!

Re: December2017 - What Did You Do to Prep This Week?

The not-so-temporary chicken coop is FINISHED! We got the wire up over the frame over the top, and got it wired to the supports, and wired down at the edges. Then, husband made the ramp and attached it, we put in the dividers for the nest boxes (4 REALLY roomy nest boxes) and I got the chopped straw...

Re: Found a Hole in my Preps!

might be seeing an uptick in this kind of activity - where you never saw it before ... the cartel's two legged pack mules are in a spiral down because of the immigration enforcement - not only the border - but also cutting them off for the reasons for coming into the US ... https://theconservativet...

Re: Found a Hole in my Preps!

The suspicion is that it's drug smugglers...apparently, they steal the horses to transport their loads to the "pick-up point', then abandon them. (Found this our from the friend who's an Arizona Ranger) Apparently, there have been several incidents in my area. Some never got off the properties ...

Re: EMP-Korea Concerns & Discussions #8 (NOV 2017)

It's one thing to speculate on potential apocalyptic events, quite another to suddenly realize it's not just something to debate, but you're actually facing it in the "now" sense, immediate future. Not the easiest thing to wrap your brain around. England faced the same thing with Hitler. ...

Re: Smokers, propane vs electrical vs others

When I get some of the more immediate projects done (animal housing, getting the well on solar, etc.) I plan on building an old-fashioned wood-fired smokehouse (and all that mesquite we have growing around the place would be perfect fuel for it!
