Does anyone know about how long this can usually go beyond the expiration date? Thanks.
I watched a YouTube video a few weeks ago and the guy drank from a stream and then backflushed with the same dirty water. Wow!
Great article. I would never tell anyone, including the government, that I’m a prepper. Of course, with a little snooping in my Amazon account, it’s obvious.
When we’re hungry enough, nothing will taste bad.
For people who say they would never eat animal brains aren’t hungry enough.
As always, another great article on The Prepared.
I just planted it this year, so we’ll see. I plan to get chickens soon and hoping they’ll enjoy it. From what I’ve read Sorghum is really healthy. In a SHTF situation, it would provide some sweetness for foods.
Two crops that I’ve added to my list: Sorghum and collards.
Does anyone know of a place that sells traditional hardtack? I’ve made lots of it, but would like to order basic hardtack. Seems like there should be a company or small business that sells it. The only thing I’ve found is more of a hard cracker. As you can see below, they have lots of unnecessary ingredients.
Ingredients: Enriched Flour (Wheat Flour, Niacin, Reduced Iron, Thiamine Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid), Vegetable Shortening (Contains one or more of the following partially hydrogenated oils: soybean, canola, cottonseed), Sugar, Corn Syrup, Whey, Leavening (Sodium Bicarbonate, Monocalcium Phosphate, Ammonium Bicarbonate), Salt.
Opps, yes, Lang. : )
Thanks so much for the info. I’ve been looking at videos and online nurseries. I found a couple of places that still have them.
I’m going to go with the Li and Wang.
One place I found some, but I haven’t ordered yet, so who knows?https://bobwellsnursery.com/product/shanxi-li-jujube-tree/
If you don’t mind me asking, where did you get your Jujube trees? Did you grow from seed? Thanks.
Very wise words. I have some some very close neighbors who I’m trying to figure out my phraseology when I approach them with prepping plans. I don’t want to give away my prepping situation without knowing their circumstances and feelings on the subject. A few of my close friends who have seen my supplies have already said “I know where I’m going in case of a problem.” I tell them to prepare, I don’t have enough for everyone. I’m sorry, but people who don’t prepare these days are part of the problem and not my responsibility. If you let in others, it’s like Amway, everyone has a downline (their family and friends). In a SHTF situation, very harsh and merciless calls are going to have to be made.
I can’t think of anything. It’s a basic backpack with a water straw, compass, paracord line, dehydrated food packs, granola bars, matches/magnesium fire starter, magnifying glass, mylar thermal shelter, rain ponchos, small cooking pan, small coffee cup, pill bottle filled with instant coffee, hatchet, flashlight, knife, pistol w/extra rounds, insect repellent, a plastic gas siphon, 2 road flares, small first aid kit w/ toothbrush and pack of baking soda, and a week’s worth of blood pressure and diabetes meds. I know there’s more but off the top of my head can’t think of it.
For sure, Robert. They’re my heroes as well. Prepping for them was called life. I recently read a book by Caleb Warnock. He listed supplies settlers had to have with them to make the journey out west. Interesting.
Does anyone know what the term do. stands for? (example: 100 do. sugar)
I wonder if you could make vinegar using the pears?
I’ve been really disappointed in TV survival and prepping shows. They all turned into fake drama situations. I learn so much more on sites like this one.
I agree. I mentioned to my wife not long ago that it only took 15 minutes driving to go from the urban city to backwoods country, with different mindsets.
Great post. I don’t have a bug out bag, plan to hunker down at home in emergencies. I do have a “get home” bag I keep in the car.
Some autocorrects are funny. Carrying “incest” repellant is one. Unless you’re making fun of my southern roots. : )
Good idea about the crossbow. This is off the OP, but I just watched a series on MHz (Amazon channel) called “Murder In”. I had no idea there were that many beautiful towns and communities in France. Wonderful scenery.
