Re: Has anyone thought about bugs?

Lice, we've not had to deal with, but I do have a comb just in case. It might sound weird, but for lice, stock up on Adams Flea and Tick Shampoo for dogs. It comes in a blue bottle. I used it on my kids every time they'd bring home a "your child had been exposed to head lice" letter from ...

Re: Another Labor day

Reb, PM me your address. I'll send you a bag. I think they're only about $300/lb now :rofl: Here, they're $25 for a 3 lb bag. Of course, that's at the farmer's market and I get them directly from the guy who grows them. And no, they're NOT pink--never could figure out why the heck people dye those ...

Re: 6.0 Earthquake. Heavy Damage Napa City, CA

Makes me really glad that I don't live there any longer, and that my Mom packed up and moved away from the area after Daddy passed away.

Re: 6.1 quake hits Napa, CA, 89 injured

What kills me is that quakes (although usually NOT in the 6.0 and above range) are fairly normal there...I grew up in Napa, and we would get quakes all the time. One of the reasons that I always keep a pair of shoes, or at least solid-soled slippers that cover my whole foot by the bed. Most of them ...

Re: August 2014 - What Did You Do To Prepare This Week/Month

The PX on base had a sale on rifles, so got a Ruger 10/22 takedown.

Re: What is your woods pistol?

When I'm in the woods (hunting, hiking, or whatever) I have my Taurus Judge with me. I load it with a couple of .45 LC, and the rest with .410 shot. Haven't needed to use it yet but better to have it and not need it than the other way around.

Re: August 2014 - What Did You Do To Prepare This Week/Month

Did a Sam's run yesterday. Was only planning on getting a couple of things (beef and chicken soup base, crumbled bacon, etc) but husband was with me this time (for the FIRST time) and was like a kid in a candy store! Came home with more than I'd planned, but now he's more interested in what we can s...

Re: It’s time for a prepper reality check

My feeling is that no one can be 100% prepared for everything. However, that being said, "stuff" happens, and your preps can see you through about 90% of whatever that is. The main thing is to have a plan, and a BACKUP plan (and a backup to the backup wouldn't hurt, either.)

Re: Moving to Wiregrass area

Icequeen, Because the forum has gotten so large, we have been encouraging people to post the majority of their content in the main forums, and leave the state forums for state-specific posts. That being said, over the course of the summer, a lot of people are very busy with their gardens and other p...

Re: Build the Ultimate School Bug Out Kit for your Kids

At the schools where I teach, we have regular "lockdown drills". Some of those drills include evacuation form the school to another location. I've also conducted my own lockdown drills so that the students know WHERE in the classroom to go, and tried to arrange the rooms to afford the stud...

Re: August 2014 - What Did You Do To Prepare This Week/Month

Got the meat into the dehydrator and the jerky is made...just finished putting it up. Ended up with just shy of 2 1/2 pounds...half "regular" and half "spicy". Once my husband gets into it, though, it will probably be gone within a day or two.

Re: August 2014 - What Did You Do To Prepare This Week/Month

Transplanted 39 corn plants from the front side to the garden in the back yard...the corn was actually coming up as volunteer plants, so I transplanted them to where they should be. Also got two roasts and had them sliced thin for making jerky with. Then made two different marinades, and the meat is...

Re: Colgate Total

Nature's Gate toothpaste (I buy/use it because it has NO fluoride in it) IS made in the USA. I've been using it for years, but had never thought to check where it was made, until this thread came up. So, I checked, and it has "Made in USA" right on the label.
