     Sadie was asking about a radio.
     Heres a basic AM/FM that runs...
     
     Four AA batteries offer up to 80 hours of battery life for extended play.
     
     I believe I'll get one next time I order from Amazon. I've got a couple of basic am/fm radios.
     
     I was asking about shortwave or ham radios. oh...sorry.
     
     I have a AM-FM radio with digitial tuning and it will kill 4 D batteries in 4 hours.
     :disbelief:
     
     So I was looking for something easy on batteries...and remembered you saying something about a radio. I have one of those "wind up" radios too.
     
     My brother got it for my mom and she didn't really need it
     so I have it now. It 's good in an emergency and you don't
     have or run out of batteries. It's been a while since I used it
     so I don't remember how long a charge lasts per cranks.

     positive I saw something like powdered buttermilk.
     
     I will look again this weekend.

     sorry, I know the answer to this...but I forgot where the thread was
     
     
     yes, in the baking section of just about any grocery store, you can get a can of SACO Cultured Buttermilk Blend
     
     mix with water according to directions on the can
     
     use it for cooking and baking and it will give you the buttermilk flavor
     
     won't make a good buttermilk drink, but its great in bread and such
     
     refrigerate after opening
     
     I always have some in the fridge

     I knew some of you smarter than me peeps would know.
     
     And thanks for the link Morgan...apparently nearly all the stores around here should have it..and if not Amazon does for about $5.50 a lb delivered.
     
     And Sadie about that Med site...I've been meaning to tell the peeps here that you can get Ciprofloxin at Amazon "for fish" for around $40.00 for 100 pills 500 mg.
     
     Which is a great price esp. when you figure no doctor bill. Its a great all round antibiotic.
     
     I used to buy it from a pharmacy for my mother...and it was $5.00 A PILL!
     
     They also have iodine pills now in case of a nuclear incident.
     I'm going to order some of that and everyone should keep generic aspirin handy as a great damn near free blood thinner.
     
     Now I'm going back to your armageddon site.    Quote      Share                  Sadie

     saw this article and thought it was a good idea.
     
     
     
     How to Have fresh Potatoes & Greens Galore when SHTF...Virtually immune from urban looters...
     
     Posted By: Watchman
     Date: Friday, 20-Jan-2012 18:12:06
     
     I have been planting potatoes of most every variety virtually every where I find some open space, including of course my own property.
     
     Potatoes will grow in every US state, of course some places are better than others.
     
     Many folks, especially those living in urban areas have been concerned about protecting their food stores from looters and rioters. The key to the technique about growing them is the simple fact that 99% of folks would not recognize a potato plant, nor be able to discern it from a weed. The key?-- weeds do not attract undue attention from hungry folks busy looking for cans and boxes of foods they recognize.
     
     Now the technique is simple... Small Potatoes can be ready for harvest in as few as 8 weeks. Full size ones are ready when the plants die.
     
     The neat thing is that they do fairly well with NO weeding, fertilizing or attention. Of course the harvest is greater when fertilizer is applied prior to planting and at mid term (about 6-8 weeks after planting)
     
     I powder the cut side of the eyes (see the following link) with a small amount of flowers of sulphur, available from most drug stores.
     
     The sulphur aids in combating potato parasites/diseases, and the plant really loves it, since potatos need some acidic content to the soil.
     
     As an aside, I also sow small patches of turnipseed for their greens and roots.
     
     Now as to where? Both potatoes and turnips love lots of sun light, and well dug (loose) beds.
     
     I plant/sow turnips in my flower beds (makes good ground cover until they get big, but by then I have eaten most anyway..
     
     Potatoes and turnips grow good on roadsides, parks, along driveways, and of course in your garden. With lots of "secret" places, your plants will be most secure from most scavengers. By planting them in various non-obvious places, you can be assured of sustenance in the worst of times.
     
     I have some potato beds that have been growing/self rejuvenating for three years. Here in Alabama you never have to buy special "seed" potatoes. Just buy them from farmers markets and eat them until they start to sprout. Then prepare them and plant.
     
     Another thing is important. You DO NOT have to harvest more than you need to eat. The ones you don't need to eat will store GREAT underground, year around. You will have a few bad ones after months of storage, but most will last just fine..
     
     Now, use your thinking cap and plant all sorts of "discrete" food plots. Animals will not eat potatoes, but they do like greens.. just plant more than they can eat. You can also plant other discreet food plants in various places. Most urbanites will not recognize them, especially if they are along roadsides. Most do not know what food in the raw looks like...
     
     Now here's the link to all you need to know...

     I didn't read the whole thread, but I'm finally rotating my stored food. I have two big buckets of seeds that will sprout for sprouts. I never did my own sprouts before so I'm learning how to do that now. Sprouted seeds are powerhouses of all sorts of nutritional goodies - and I was also told to soak and sprout grains before grinding to make flours - for breads.
     
     My aim is to use the sprouts in my blended green drinks.    Quote     Like      Share                  KnightStar

    Never heard of spouting them first. :hmm:
     
     Wouldn't that make paste instead of flour?
     
     I've found the dryer and harder the better to make flour.

     I stand corrected Knightstar. I looked up my reference ("Nourishing Traditions" by Sally Fallon and Mary Enig - recommended by my son's then Functional Doctor of Medicine when we lived in Vermont.
     
     Sally recommends that you grind grain when it's dry, then soak the flour 12 to 24 hours in an acidic medium such as buttermilk, yogurt, milk with lemon juice in it to sour it - because the acidic soaking helps break down the enzymes and it softens the whole meal flour (making it resemble white flour product). I know this is also recommended for gluten free products.
     
     I saw an episode of America's Test Kitchen where they were making "real" gingerbread - and making the distinction between baking soda and baking powder. What happens is that the soda is required if the batter is too acidic - the baking soda neutralizes the acid in the powder - but you need to add more to make it rise. In many gluten free breads, having the flour soak in an acidic medium helps to make the bread rise - and soften - the product, both issues with gluten free breads.
     
     Anyway, thanks for bringing that up or else I would be soaking my grains before grinding and make a complete mess!
     
     Now I have to learn to sprout sprouts and keep them clean (sprouts are notorious for bringing icky e coli when you buy them commercially.)

     Personally, what I feel is best to prep and in this order is,,, Organic seeds, grow media, tarps for a greenhouse, dehydrated foods, a water distiller or learn how to distill water, (that IS the only way to remove radiation from water).
     Solar power, even just the Harbor Freight solar panels, they will light up 2 rooms and can recharge 4 batteries daily which you can run a DC volt fridge easily with as well.
     Firearms for self protection - not for killing people.
     Medicines and hygiene supplies..
     and last but not least, a good bug out plan with preferably an older car before the mid 70's so an EMP or solar flare won't take it out along with gas cans. That's at least a starter, but if you talk with your neighbors, there is strength and security in numbers... NUFF SAID 8~)
     
     OH, I almost forgot, the ONLY WAY TO PROTECT ELECTRONIC EQUIP is to wrap in plastic then in tinfoil, yes I said tin foil. An EMP is an microwave. If you don't believe me call somebody on your cell, put it on speaker phone and then while they are talking slowly wrap the tin foil around your phone. It will lose ALL SIGNAL, same with GPS or any type of electronics as long as the foil isn't touching any metal on the inside your electronics will still work if an event does happen...

     Worker Dies After Being Cooked In Tuna Plant Oven[/size]
     October 12, 2012 6:53 PM
     
     SANTA FE SPRINGS (AP) — Authorities say a 62-year-old employee was cooked to death at a Southern California seafood plant for tuna maker Bumble Bee Foods.
     
     The Whittier Daily News reports Jose Melena was found Thursday shortly before 7 a.m. at the plant in Santa Fe Springs.
     
     California Division of Occupational Safety and Health spokeswoman Erika Monterroza says it’s unclear how the man ended up inside a cooking device called a “steamer machine.”

     And they were questioning people what they were doing to prepare for
     the apocolypse.
     
     One guy answered...I bought a 12 gauge and a .45 auto,
     They asked..but what about food and water?
     
     He answered....oh that...I don't worry about that.
     I live in Calif. Theres lots of unarmed liberals out here.
     I'll just take theirs.

     We've been buying a few of these storage containers:
     
     
     They are a bit pricey but they hold 40 lbs and have a moisture/ air tight lid and are easily accessible when stacked.
     
     We have a couple of 60lb ones for flour and sugar and a couple 40lb ones for rice and macaroni.

     [size=75%]Mayan apocalypse: panic spreads as December 21 nears[/size]
     
     6:42PM GMT 07 Dec 2012
     
     Ahead of December 21, which marks the conclusion of the 5,125-year "Long Count" Mayan calendar, panic buying of candles and essentials has been reported in China and Russia, along with an explosion in sales of survival shelters in America. In France believers were preparing to converge on a mountain where they believe aliens will rescue them.
     
     
     
     In America Ron Hubbard, a manufacturer of hi-tech underground survival shelters, has seen his business explode.
     
     "We've gone from one a month to one a day," he said. "I don't have an opinion on the Mayan calendar but, when astrophysicists come to me, buy my shelters and tell me to be prepared for solar flares, radiation, EMPs (electromagnetic pulses) ... I'm going underground on the 19th and coming out on the 23rd. It's just in case anybody's right."

     It’s the Little Things That Matter: 100 Survival Items To Help Keep A Sense of Normality and Sanity After the Collapse
     Norse Prepper
     December 29th, 2012
     SHTFplan.com
     
     
     “Enjoy the little things, for some day you may look back and realize they were the big things” – Robert Brault
     
     Bullets…check. Beans…check. Band Aids…check. The list goes on and on sometimes doesn’t it? As preppers, we all are stockpiling the items and supplies that we plan on needing if and when it hits the fans. We all need to make sure we can eat, drink, protect ourselves from the elements and defend what needs to be defended. However, today I found myself thinking of things that weren’t on my “Need in order to survive” list. Little things that we all take for granted today, but someday, we may look back and think how simple it would have been to pick up a couple of those items when they are no longer on a store shelf near you.
     
     Don’t get me wrong, the “Need in order to survive” list is far more important than this one because that is priority number one. But ask yourself, what is priority number two? I would call this the luxury list. These are things that people don’t necessarily need, but will help to keep a sense of normality and sanity when possibly cut off from our instantly able to be gratified society. Things like chocolate. Many preppers stock it because of its shelf life. I stock it because it will lift the spirits of those who will be close to me. It’s a little thing now with shelves stocked in the local big box, but one year after the collapse, it will be a big thing!!
     
     If you have children, think about when their birthdays arrive. Can you imagine how great of a present it would be for them to get a chocolate bar, or a new dress, or a cap gun? Think of things that would make that day extra special to a beautiful seven year old birthday girl. Think of something that could be brought out and given to your husband or wife that would take their breath away that is taken for granted today. In a recent post, someone mentioned the empathy they had for the children that are going to be robbed of a fun filled youth if society turns brutal. I too think constantly of what can I do to help my kids still have a childhood that has days of fun instead of bullets, beans and band aids.
     
     Here is a list of 100 things I thought of off the top of my head mixed with a little humor. Things that would add a brief moment of joy to the potentially dreary days ahead. Many of them have both luxury purposes as well as useful purposes with respect to survival mode, not to mention it would be something you could barter because these aren’t necessity. I would love to hear the ideas of others of things to add to the list.
     
     Bible – This actually isn’t a luxury item, it’s a necessity in my book, but for some…
     Toilet paper – LOTS OF IT! Like my brother told me recently, before he would want to take a soiled rag and clean it by hand he would rather go Fido and ass drag himself across the lawn! Sorry for the language, but that’s funny! This would be on his survival list!
     Chocolate
     Crossword puzzles
     Rubix cube – This will provide adequate frustration to the survival group.
     A new outfit to store away for each kid for their next 10 birthdays. If next year’s birthday comes to pass without a collapse, you already have a present purchased!
     Board games – Lots of them
     Playing cards (both regular and pinochle)
     New pairs of shoes – Priceless in a SHTF scenario when the old ones wear out.
     Make up – Kids or womens…unless you are in California! (Sorry Mac!)
     Cap gun – This can also be very handy teaching the little ones to handle a sidearm.
     Magnifying glass – fun for kids, but can also start a fire.
     Boxes of color crayons
     Tablets/notebooks/construction paper
     A photo album (Make sure you print off whatever pictures you want to have access to!)
     Scrapbooking supplies
     A basketball/football/baseball with baseball mitts and bats
     Telescope – It’s fun to look up at the stars and moon when there aren’t the lights of the city to hide them. Get a star chart to pick out the constellations for your area of the globe.
     Pens/markers/pencils (don’t forget a pencil sharpener!)
     Books – kids/history/romance/survival/fiction/biography’s (check out local garage sales)
     Mountain House (or other) dehydrated ice cream.
     Tonka trucks or Matchbox cars
     Ipod touch preloaded with game apps, music, movies (You need to have the ability to recharge them)
     A globe – To describe to the next generation that the world isn’t really flat
     Dolls – Barbie or other
     A small mirror – Could be used for fun or for signaling
     Gloves – Working, gardening, warming…imagine 2 years in to get a new set of gloves?
     Bug catchers – Nets and the screened containers to put them in. Kids love it.
     Fishing equipment – Fun and can provide food.
     Long underwear – Watch the episode of M*A*S*H* where a pair of long underwear were being stolen and bartered across the compound to understand their value.
     Kites – If your mother in law moves in, wait until there is a storm and….nevermind. Kids love em!
     Musical instruments – harmonica, guitar, fiddle. Doesn’t matter if you don’t know how to play, you will have time to learn!
     Sheet music – Easier than trying to remember all of the words and chords!
     Puzzles
     Model cars/boats with model paint
     Wax and wicks to make candles. If you want, add colors and fragrances.
     Spices – I’m sure these are already on everyone’s list, but they are a luxury.
     Coffee – Again, this may seem necessary, but it is a luxury.
     Scissors and razors – for crafts, hair cutting, shaving. When the power runs out and everyone’s electric razor runs out of juice, a disposable razor will be great for barter.
     Sewing kit with material and a book on how to sew. Don’t forget a measuring tape and patterns for different sizes. When we all lose weight because the fast food joints are boarded up, the ability to hem and take in existing clothes will be quite handy.
     Rechargeable vacuum cleaner (assuming you have the ability to charge it). Carpet will become very dirty.
     Fresh sheets and blankets
     Dice
     Hammer, nails, saws, wood. Survival stuff I know, but have enough extra to make a tree fort (Listening post to the prepper)
     Short wave radio with rechargeable batteries. This could be important to get news from around the world as well as regionally, but imagine being able to turn on a radio instead of the dead silence.
     Plastic Easter eggs – An Easter egg hunt would be huge fun for the kids. Think of little toys/things to stuff in them.
     Sleds – If there is a hill and snow there is fun.
     Kid pool – Capture some rainwater in it and let the sun heat it up for some fun in the pool.
     Alcohol – I’m not talking for sterilizing a wound. I’m talking a glass of wine or the spirit of your choice to open on an anniversary or something. A few bottles of wine in the basement can make for a nice get away. Great barter item as well if you remember Selco’s story from surviving Sarajevo.
     Condoms – This goes well with #49 and let’s face it, an EMP isn’t going to stop this from being a very useful item! Great barter item as well.
     Joke books – Is there anything that can lift the spirit of a fellow more than a good laugh?
     Toothbrushes – Eventually yours will wear out. Have a lot of these on hand.
     Small cooler that can be plugged in to the solar power. I once took a trip by myself in to the boundary waters in northern Minnesota. Had a great time, caught lots of fish, did plenty of reading and hiking, but left two days early because the one thing I missed most was drinking something cold.
     Flower seeds – Nothing herbal or edible as those are survival seeds. These are for growing a few flowers to put on the table to add some color to what may be an otherwise gray world.
     Hankerchiefs – Tons of uses.
     Yard games – Horse shoes, yard darts…etc.
     Domino’s – Not the pizza!! There won’t be a lot of delivery going when SHTF! J
     Hard candy
     Dental floss
     Shoe laces – many applications with the main one being the ability to lace your shoes/boots.
     Fireworks – Can be used for fun as well as survival applications.
     Targets – If you have enough ammo to spare for target practice it is loads of fun. (Pun intended) I realize ammo will be at a premium, so will the ability to shoot it accurately.
     Wood carving tools – Great hobby, creates kindling and if you screw up, hide the evidence by heating your house.
     Pets – Great companions as well as security. Even a little yapper like my neighbor’s can save your life. Make sure your preps include food for them as well!
     Socks and underwear – Feet smell and socks get worn out. A new pair of socks will be a huge luxury. Shouldn’t have to tell you the benefits of fresh underwear.
     Solar charger with USB port – Apps on your mobile phones will still work, music, pictures and videos from the past not lost.
     Bow and arrows – Again, target practicing is fun and it is extremely useful for providing food. Make sure you have a lot of target arrows as well as your broadheads.
     Home schooling materials – educate your kids to be able to read and do math.
     Walkie talkies – Kids love playing with them (Don’t forget your rechargeable batteries)
     Food coloring – Purple rice tonight? Now the kids like it!
     Binoculars – It’s amazing how much fun looking at things closer can be. For example, people climb to the top of the Sears Tower so that they can look through binoculars at the ground where they just were. This is proof that it is really fun to look through them! (that might have been an old George Carlin joke…not sure)
     Yo yo’s, Slinkies, jacks, etch-a-sketch…think of the non battery operated toys of days past.
     Magazines – Get a subscription to your favorites and don’t throw them away. Ask friends and relatives if you can have theirs when they are done with them.
     Flash cards – You can get them on many different subjects from math to reading to picture recognition. You can use recipe cards to customize them to whatever you want.
     Christmas ornaments – If you celebrate Christmas, there is a lot of fun in decorating a tree. Ask your parents and grandparents if you can have a few of theirs. These end up being precious heirlooms and may remind you of stories to tell of Christmas past around a campfire.
     BB guns – Fun for the kids, cheap ammo and great for getting them used to handling a rifle. Can’t tell you how many hours of fun my old Daisy provided.
     Balloons – Nothing says birthday like a balloon. If you have young kids that can’t walk yet, but can roll over, put a red balloon on the floor and watch them go to work.
     Polaroid camera and film (don’t forget your rechargeable batteries!). Yes, they still exist and are available to buy on Ebay. You can capture a precious moment on film and it will print out the picture for you.
     Knitting supplies – Provides scarves, blankets to newborns and can be a good hobby.
     Written stories from grandparents and parents about their past to read to the group over a campfire.
     Ammo reloading supplies – It is a fun hobby to reload ammo and a useful skill to know. Saves money on ammo as well. This could also be a skill used for bartering for goods.
     Metal detector – If you have the ability to recharge the batteries it uses, it can be fun to go on a search for things buried from the past.
     Rakes for the leaf piles in the fall. If your mother in law moves in with you, cover a fire hydrant with a pile of leaves and….nevermind. The kids love jumping in them!!
     Skip ropes/hula hoops/frisbee’s
     Set of golf clubs and golf balls – Have chipping contests in the yard.
     Snorkels and fins if you live near a lake or the ocean. Grab a spear and you can even provide a shore lunch!
     Microscope – If seeing things close up from behind a set of binoculars isn’t fun enough, you wouldn’t believe how much fun it is for kids to look at some things through a microscope.
     Rope – Make a swing from a tree or a hundred other fun uses.
     Bird feeders with bird seed and bird houses. I’ve never gotten in to watching birds that much, but people love it.
     Sling shot – Give a sling shot and a few rocks to a 10 year old and they would be in heaven! When they get good enough, they may just put a rabbit in the kettle too. (Don’t forget plywood for over your windows!)
     Snowshoes – When there is 2’ of snow on the ground going for a nature walk or hunting trip will be much easier.
     Solar shower – A hot shower can make a world of difference and really lift spirits when everything is dirty.
     Hand held back massager – People are going to be working hard and using muscles that normally don’t get used too hard. This will lead to knots in muscles and back aches.
     Hand crank radio – If any local station is still broadcasting the ability to listen to local news or music will be critical.
     Reading glasses – Maybe you can see well now, but when you and others grow older, eventually a set of reading glasses will be a priceless gift.
     Sunglasses – Sunglasses get broken and scratched. A good pair of sunglasses can provide light protection as well as eye protection.
     Nintendo DS or other battery operated hand held games. Again, you need to have the ability to recharge the batteries.
     Skateboard, rollerblades or bikes
     Letters from loved ones – Just think, it’s 3 years after the collapse. Mom and dad in laws live in Florida and who knows if they are even alive. Ask them if they would write a personal letter to your wife or husband and kids telling them about themselves and how much they are loved. I can’t think of a greater present than a hand written letter to give on a birthday.
     Bible – All things including this list in my opinion should begin and end with God. His grace is truly the only thing that can really save us all.
     
     With all of these remember to keep in mind safety first. Obviously if your neighborhood is surrounded by the golden hoard, don’t be having fun flying down local sledding hill shooting off bottle rockets. Everybody will be faced with different levels of security. Some in small towns may find themselves in relative security; others in the big city may not feel comfortable venturing out on their front door step.

     When you really look at prepping as if theres no store tommorow
     and won't be ever again.
     You see how many things you need..how many things you need electricity for.
     
     Then you realize its almost a hopeless situation.
     :disbelief:
     
     
     
     
     Did you see Brad Meltzers last show about the gold in Ft Knox?
     
     They pretty much concluded its gone.
     
     They talked to several people who once worked there and all said it was gone.
     
     The gov't won't allow ANYONE to see it or look in the vault.
     The last inventory was in '72.
     
     They conclude if the news of it come out the economy would collapse.
     And there would be total collapse of American...if not global society.
     
     So yeah...put bullets high up on yer list.

     Freedom! :viking: I know you can live without many things...I have.
     When my maternal grandmother got cancer. My mother loaded up 4 kids and we went to Murphy.
     Her tin roofed house had very basic wiring. Mostly just a center light bulb in each room.
     It had no hot water...no indoor plumbing...just a well outside the kitchen.(Which went dry while we were there and we had to dig a spring out and carry water 350 yards thru the woods before school.) No bathroom or tub..My mother never learned to drive..we had no car. No radio.
     Just a small 13 in B&w tv that only got 2 stations...and not all the time.
     We had a wood stove trying to heat a heat an uninsulated house with cracks in the floor you could stick your finger thru.
     During the winter we had to bring the mattresses to the living room and huddle around the stove at night.
     It had another wooden cookstove in the kitchen to cook on. It did have a refrig.
     We lived there for a little over a year.
     
     So I know what its like. But to take an entire nation used to everything and jerk the rug out from under them. :disbelief:
     With all the methicans and pissed off blacks. It will be total chaos.
     
     And I just don't care to live like that now.
     :dunno:
     
     But I may not have a choice. :dunno:

     Murphy had good hunting. If it came to a survival situation.
     If its still like it was would be the place to go.
     Harsh winters though...((((shivers))))

     :damned: Well, I've got to run to keep from hiding
     And I'm bound to keep on riding
     And I've got one more silver dollar

     no...not gonna let 'em catch the Midnight Rider

     Virtually unknown to people in other parts of the world, the inhabitants in the Northern European countries have for hundreds of years grown potatoes above ground in straw or other mulching material. It is a method of growing potatoes that works. Little effort is needed to grow flourishing potato crops in this unusual manner. Amongst those who plant potatoes in straw or mulch there is a saying that goes, "even a couch potato can grow a good potato crop with very little work."
     
     In the vegetable world, there are few that yield more than the potato crop, and this is even increased when potatoes are planted in straw. By using straw mixed with a bit of rich soil or manure, it is easy to grow a bountiful crop in a limited space. It is a great way to grow potatoes for those who live in urban centers where space and cultivatable land are usually hard to find.
     
     The planting and harvesting of potatoes planted in straw or mulch is a simple matter. There are numerous ways of growing a crop in this fashion. The following is one of the simpler methods.
     
     Vegetation should first be cleared from the area where the potatoes are to be grown. Place the seed potatoes—always make sure that you use certified seed potatoes—directly on the ground and cover them with a 50/50 blend of straw with old manure 12'' deep, then soak with water. The tubers will form in this mixture and flourish. As the potatoes grow, keep adding, a little at a time, the straw with old manure mix mounded up around the base of the plants. Keep the mix watered regularly. Mounding up is important, since if the tubers are exposed to sunlight, they will turn green, making them toxic.
     
     When potatoes are planted in straw, there are very few weeds. The few that appear are easily removable. The straw holds the moisture, so less water is needed. The beauty of growing potatoes under a straw mat is that the guesswork is taken out of the growing, and harvesting becomes considerably easier.
     
     The corner of the straw can be lifted carefully and one can see how the potatoes are developing. New potatoes can be harvested easily even before the potato vines mature completely. When the potatoes are ready to harvest, one can simply pull back the straw and remove by hand as many potatoes as needed, then replace the straw properly in order to keep the light off any remaining potatoes. You may harvest this way a number of times. The plant will produce more and more potatoes until the vine dies.
     
     Growing and harvesting in this fashion is a great method of cultivating potatoes. It is much cleaner and simpler than planting them in the ground and having to dig them out. As the saying goes, "It's easy picking rather than digging."

     Bush's baked beans. Get thee some.
     
     I last week found a can dated 2002. I started to throw them away.
     But thought...lets have a look and see how bad the can has deterioated.
     
     I opened it...the can had a white coating on the inside. The vacuum was still there.
     No sign of anything wrong.
     
     So I thought..heat it up and taste it.
     
     So I did.
     
     Tasted like I bought it last week.
     
     Made some coleslaw...some fries and had some hush puppies.
     
     No ill effects. Very tasty.
     
     So I know they will last at least 11 years and you cain't hardly beat that for
     something cheap..already cooked...and can be eaten cool or heated in its own can
     as a survival food.
     
     Plus its a complex carb..so it keeps you from being hungry a long time.
     And it has lots of fiber.
     
     As I sayed...Get thee some.
     I'm gonna get a couple cases from Sam's club. Well, I've got to run to keep from hiding
     And I'm bound to keep on riding
     And I've got one more silver dollar
     But I'm not gonna let them catch me,
     no...not gonna let 'em catch the Midnight Rider

     There was no adhesive tape, just the junky clear tape the hospitals use. The band aids she recommended don't work either, use tough strips. Band aids, 4x4s, peroxide, Neosporin and tape are the basics, every thing else is fine-tuning to personal taste. "History becomes legend,

     Dear Mike:
     
     I tried to post a response earlier: and Poof-- it was gone. I had stuff to do,
     so here I am again, let's see how this goes?
     
     ACV-- gender Neutral I think. What is it good for?
     
     
     14 - What, exactly, are the internal and external benefits attributed to ACV?
     
     Following the old cliché, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away," apples are one of the oldest, most nutritious foods on earth. They are rich in potassium, a mineral many of us are deficient in, and a deficiency that causes old age to creep upon us sooner. Calcium maintains our hard tissues such as bones, and potassium is the equivalent to the body’s soft tissues, keeping the body’s flesh and arteries soft and resilient. Fresh, organic apples are used to make Apple Cider Vinegar, which contains necessary ingredients, such as enzymes, and life-stimulating minerals, mainly potassium, in a natural state. Besides being a natural stimulant for vitality, Apple Cider Vinegar cleanses and restores nutrients to the body so that the body can heal itself. [BACK]
     
     APPLE CIDER VINEGAR: Helps Remove Body Toxins * Helps Promote a Youthful Body *Helps support a healthy immune system * Helps Maintain Healthy Skin * Helps Control Weight * Improves Digestion and Assimilation * Soothes Tight and Aching Joints and Sore Muscles from exercise * Soothes irritated skin. [BACK]
     
     Okay, in plain speak-- good for tummy troubles, maintain healthy ph balance, help reduce kidney stones, gallstone, and arthritis, and are good to cure toe nail fungus. (ewww, but true)
     
     As far as the cheesiness of the tape, I think the point was to make a very basic, covers most scenarios for a very cheap price.
     
     I would include, hemostats, scalpel, suture kits, emergency dental repair kit,aloe for burns, splints, super glue, and lidocaine. But, that's just me and Dan! :hehe: :hi: :hugs:

     If anyone ever watched Naked and Afraid...then you know fire and heating water are 2 of their greatest challenges.
     
     So I bought a camp style cast iron 8 qt. Dutch oven with legs.
     I saw a rancher using one a year back and was impressed with them.
     The legs keep it level with sitting on coals...and the lid is dished so you can add coals to the lid to increase heat and or cooking speed.
     
     They are $57 at Amazon-free ship...and $32 at Sportsman Guide + $8.99 S&h.
     But I got it free ship this weekend.
     
     I'll probably never use it...bu if ye go camping or :end: happen.
     It'll be something to cook with.
     
     And I already have matches.
     :) Well, I've got to run to keep from hiding
     And I'm bound to keep on riding
     And I've got one more silver dollar

     Nobody should be without a good machete. This is THE multipurpose survival tool for most of the world's population.
     
     Even without the apocalypse, they're good to have for clearing brush, garden and orchard work, and the shorter ones make for a decent butcher knife.
     
     I usually keep a British-made Martindale "Paratrooper" short machete with me on the canoe in case I need to clear a nice spot on the riverbank for fishing.
     
     This site has some of the best prices I've found online, and they also carry sickles, scythes and billhooks too.     Quote     Like      Share                  elmo

     I have 2 now. Budget types but still useable.
     I think a shorter one would be more ideal for most situations.

     Been watching those Naked and Afraid survival shows.
     Not much to learn except water everywhere seems to give you
     the squirts...so it needs to be boiled. Unless its a spring.
     
     And the importance of fire making tools. A good mag glass seems like
     a good one to me.
     
     Another thing is soap...these people take daily baths for the most part. But without soap. They come out of the water still dirty.
     
     I think I will add a bunch of bar soap to my preps.

     One Year Supply For 1 Adult
     Mormon Food Storage
     
     This list is a guideline for storing the bare minimum. The picture below shows you how much food you’ll get to eat everyday if you follow this guideline. And this is all you’ll get to eat. That is why I call it survival rations. You will stay alive, but eating probably won’t still be your favorite pastime.
     
     You get 1 cup Wheat, 1 cup Oatmeal, 1/2 cup Rice, 1/3 cup beans, 2 Tbs Oil, 1 glass Milk (2 T powdered milk), 1/3 cup honey, and 2 tsp salt per day. Your daily menu might look something like this:
     
     Breakfast: Hot oatmeal with honey & milk
     Lunch: Tortillas and Sprouted Wheat
     Dinner: Rice and Beans
     
     With that said, whole grains are still the foundation of your food storage. You can use them in almost everything you cook. These are the dollar stretcher foods. I can feed my family of 12, breakfast every day for a month on one 50-pound bag of oatmeal (costs about $20). Add peaches, milk, and honey for taste, and you have a nutritious breakfast that children love. A one year supply for 1 adult should include: 400 lbs of Grain, 60 lbs of Legumes, 16 lbs of Powdered Milk, 10 Qts of Oil, 60 lbs of Sugar or Honey, and 8 lbs of Salt.The shelf life on these items is included in the chart below.
     
     The chart shows how much it costs for a one-year supply for 1 adult. Adjust it to your individual needs. For example: rice and oats are a lot easier on a child’s digestive system compared to wheat. Store more of these grains for the children.
     
     See Bulk Food Storage Containers to learn how to store your bulk food.
     
     NOTE: You don’t want to start using wheat when that is all you have to eat. It will be hard on your system. Slowly add it to your diet, my family has been eating wheat for years and we don’t have any problems with a whole-wheat diet. Even my babies eat wheat and do great.

     The DIY Disaster Preparation Bucket
     
     This emergency kit comes from AlfredoEinsteino on Reddit – who we will call AE - and is published with his permission. At the end of this post is a list of every single item you see here so you can make this exact emergency kit for yourself.
      Keep in mind that this kit is one person’s collection of items that work best for him. It’s the right kit for AE but may not yet be the perfect kit for you. You should always tailor your emergency kit around what’s likely in your area and your family’s needs.
     
     Organizing the 5 Gallon Emergency Kit
     
     AE has divided his emergency kit into a few broad categories to keep his supplies organized and well rounded:
     
     General Supplies
     Hygiene Supplies
     First Aid Kit
     
     Every item is listed in detail in a printed contents document. On the back is a list of important phone numbers such as relatives, insurance companies, local law enforcement, fire department, etc.
     
     Did you catch the line second from the top? It’s the most important detail on the loadout document – the date. This helps you remember when the bucket was put together so you can keep track of all your expiration dates. A good emergency kit can easily last 5 years or more, but not everything inside will be good for that long and may need to be replaced periodically. Again, the EpiPen example – they only last about 20 months from the day they are made. Replacing an expired EpiPen could be a life or death matter!
     
     Shopping List: 5 Gallon Emergency Kit
     
     The rest of this article will be a list of the contents of the bucket. You can download this list in an editable Word format by clicking here: 5 Gallon Bucket Emergency Kit It may be instructive to compare this list with the much higher calorie emergency kit from Mayday disaster preparation company. Humans usually need at least 2,000 calories every single day – which adds up really fast. Depending on your anticipated needs, you may want one or several food-geared buckets in addition to your emergency supply kit. I’ve linked some of the more unusual items that you might not find at your neighborhood hardware store.
     
     General Supplies

     Written by a Trauma Surgeon, The Prepper Pages describes the most practical and effective treatments for injuries and illnesses encountered within the chaos of disasters.

     The Grey Man
     
     The Grey Man is always invisible in plain sight.
     
     The Grey Man is totally aware of his environs, his own capabilities or lack thereof, his weaponry and his levels of competence with that weaponry. He constantly strives to improve upon both his capabilities and competence. In public, he is always respectful, even to the point of obsequiousness if the situation calls for it. He always appears to be just a little confused by what is happening around him, while in reality he is alertly doing a tactical assessment.
     
     The Grey Man NEVER draws attention to himself by word, dress, action, or mannerism. The Young Grey Man is dismissed as a wimp, the Older as a doddering old fool. The Grey Man derives great inner satisfaction from having this portrayal of himself accepted by all he meets, for it means he is succeeding in his disguise of his actual persona.
     
     The Grey Man is a private man. He practices with his weaponry in private, or only with his fellow Grey Men, always in a secluded location. If he must resort to use of a public facility, he schedules his practice for times when he is likely to be the only one there. At such times he would probably wear bright clothing, to be remembered only as ‘that guy in the red jacket and sunglasses’, a quite different person from his usual persona. If right-handed, he would always occupy the leftmost station on a NRA bullseye pistol range, with his back to an observer, or the rightmost one for riflery or combat pistol practice. He would not have his name emblazoned on clothing or equipment, nor would he have any noteworthy affiliation proclaimed on his cap. “He’s just a guy. Comes every Wednesday morning for his coffeebreak. Always pays cash.”
     
     The Grey Man does not drive a pink Cadillac with steer horns on the hood, NOR does he drive the biggest mutherin’ 4X4-with-all-the-bells-and-whistles BOV in the lot. The older his vehicle is, the rustier, the less likely it is to draw attention (or to be stolen, for that matter). This vehicle is, under its exterior, scrupulously maintained and in excellent running order. If pulled over by authority on the basis of appearance, it can be shown to meet or exceed all requirements under licensing laws, and an obsequious co-operative manner precludes a search under the seats. The Grey Man does not speed on the highway: cruise control is his friend. So is the Highway Patrol: he waves to any he sees. If he travels the same route constantly, at the same times, The Grey Man becomes a ‘fixture’ and can be dismissed from conscious observation.
     
     It helps the Survivor to build up this persona of The Grey Man gradually and over time. The anti-gun sheeple neighbors will quickly rat out the ‘Patriot’ who is always loudly declaiming about his ‘Rights’ and ‘what will happen if they try to take my guns’. The Grey Man goes far out of his way never to offend anyone, imitating the duck which appears calm on the surface of his pond whilst paddling like hell under the surface.
     
     Be seen as conservative in all you do. A Survivor is a Grey Man, and that little old grey man alone over there in the corner is probably a Survivor!
     
     And that young guy next to him? Just another wimp? Or are they both watching each other’s backs?
     
     Making the other guy waste precious time in assessing the situation is a big part of staying alive. Practice being grey now, while there's time to build your skills.

     Good article KS.
     
     
     Here is one that is really easy to do.
     
     But, first, regarding the picture, what kind of container is that?
     How much heat would this gel fuel give off and is gel fuel just
     a fancy word for candle or is it different? And, what is the gel
     fuel container sitting on? Cause that is neat and I would like to make
     one of those containers.

     How to Make 'GEL FUEL' at Home for Survival- So Easy!!!

     Line a container with reflective tiles and you have a room heater, too.

     **********************************************************
     
     Gel fuel is a relative newcomer to the portable fuel scene and is making quite a splash, mainly because if you knock it over, it DOESN’T make a splash. It’s safer to use than regular fuel because it won’t spill out and cause a fuel fire, and it doesn’t produce any noxious gases if burned inside with no ventilation, which makes it an excellent tool for survival.
     
     So let’s see how to make gel fuel at home for your stockpile.
     
     There are a couple of different ways to make gel fuel at home and both are just a matter of preference. Regardless of which way you choose, the primary incendiary component is 90% isopropyl alcohol, aka rubbing alcohol. The other component, the gelling agent, is either soy wax or calcium acetate.
     
     The debate about which is better is basically the same as that over chocolate or vanilla: it’s just a matter of which you prefer.
     
     How to Make Gel Fuel with Soy Wax
     
     If you choose to use the soy wax, just follow some simply steps:
     
     Melt 6 ounces of soy wax in a pan.
     
     Add 1/2 cup 70-99% isopropyl alcohol (higher percentage is better if you can find it) and stir until completely combined.
     
     Pour the mixture into 6 soup cans or pet food cans until they’re about 3/4 of the way full then add a wick that goes to the bottom of the gel fuel.
     
     Cool in the fridge for several hours or overnight, and then it’s ready to use.
     
     If you’d rather store in quantity, you can put it in gallon jugs. Just make sure that you label it well so that nobody mistakes it for water or something else and store it away from children and pets.

     A 1970's Canadian civil defense publication of 32 pages on line with all the illustrations. Seems to be better to me in a number of areas than the ones of that size that the US ones put out in that first cold war era.

     "Under the 'preset" which one would most likely be
     like ones the Russians would use?"
     
     
     My guess would be in the 500 to 800 mt range with most of them being air busts meaning moar blast damage then ground busts BUT also little fallout. They are joining the "fashion" trend of adopting smaller MIRVed (multi war-headed) rockets.
     
     Using ground busts in that range or higher (up to 5 mg.) for hard targets like under ground bunkers and missile silos. Much moar fallout.
     
     If nuke plants are hit like the old Soviets planned. An extreme amount of longer lasting fallout would be produced. Meaning no growing eatable crops or much outdoor activity in an area for a generation or two.
     
     If weapons are "salted" up with radiative materials such as cobalt like in that one old Planet of the Apes movie no outside stuff where the heavy dust comes down for many generations.
     
     If I was a novelizing - First someone uses tactical ones to promote their conventional weapons use or to stop the very successful use of the others guys forces.
     
     Everyone then puts their strategic forces on high alert.
     
     Someone decides a fatal line has been crossed.
     
     Subs launch their goodies. EMP blasts out in space. Ground missiles and anti-missile missiles are launched. Allies get into the act.
     
     Maybe civilian populations get a little warning beforehand to head to shelter. But of course the US general population does not have public ones anymoar.
     
     The different sides holds back some nukes for a possible 2nd strike occurring hours or days or weeks later. And at last surviving big shots decide to use any of their possible doomsday (cobalt) weapons). Otherwise when safe they sent their remaining loyal security forces out to draft the remaining civilian population into reconstruction labor battalions.

     Not sure where to put this so I thought it might go here.
     
     This person makes a lot of claims about these leaves.
     
     But, I'm sure it can't hurt to try.
     
     
     
     GODS’ Cure Written in the Bible: This Powerful and 3.500 Years Old Remedy, Cures all Diseases!
     
     The Riddler 09:00 Stay Healthy
     Tea of olive leaves may help in healing pneumonia, gonorrhea, tuberculosis, influenza, meningitis, hepatitis B, herpes…
     
     
     In the Bible the olive tree is mentioned more than a thousand times. Although today’s most popular are olives, but many people do not know that the olive leaves also have a lot of healing properties and the most important compound in olive leaf is oleuropein, which has a very strong anti-bacterial property.
     
     
     
     
     The olive leaf improves the health condition in a lot of diseases which are caused by microbes. It also helps with flu, meningitis, hepatitis B, pneumonia, gonorrhea and herpes.
     
     It also helps with surgical, as well as in urinary tract infections. Olive leaves prevents infection caused by fungi.
     
     Tea of olive leaves may help in the healing of these diseases: pneumonia, gonorrhea, tuberculosis, influenza, meningitis, hepatitis B, herpes, chronic fatigue syndrome, atherosclerosis, botulism, malaria, stomach ulcers, diphtheria, urinary tract infections and encephalitis.
     
     Consumption of olive leaf helps to restore the entire immune system, but also serves to restore energy in the tortured body, for example after chemotherapy. Olive leaves are very healing because they have antiviral, ant parasitic, antibacterial and anti-fungal activities through which it is possible to completely get over a large number of diseases.
     
     Recipe:
     
     
     You will need 15-20 dried olive leaves for a cup of tea (2-3dl). Put the olive leaves into boiled water and cook them for 2-3 minutes. Leave the leaves to stay in the water for 10 minutes and remove them. You can drink the tea cold or warm; you can add honey or lemon. It is up to your taste. Tea should be drunk every day to feel the improvement of different diseases.
     
     The tea is recommended to drink preventive. It is the best to harvest the leaves in the spring. Store in a closed container, protected of the sunlight.

     They sell olive leaf extract...I gave it to my mother.
     
     
     Food stretcher idea. I saw this when looking for rice recipes.
     Take a leftover cup of rice put in frying pan..add in a tbsp or so of butter.
     
     Fry a few minutes.
     
     Mix 3 eggs and pour in and scramble as usual. The rice takes on the taste of the eggs. No bad at all. The only way you really know that rice is in them is the texture.
     
     You could feed twice as many. Well, I've got to run to keep from hiding
     And I'm bound to keep on riding
     And I've got one more silver dollar
     But I'm not gonna let them catch me,
     no...not gonna let 'em catch the Midnight Rider

     Thats a neat take with stove...be great for a tent.
     
     I've been wanting to build a woodstove for a long time. But they are a bear to move. My current stove weighs about 500 lbs.
     Moving it 22 years ago was bad...I don't think I could do it now.

     Walmart in the auto dept has Permatex brand...4 little bottles for 1.00

     Just remembered...Gorilla glue has a new kind out..its supposed to have some give to it and not be brittle like regular super glue.
     But its 5.00 for a Visine bottle sized bottle of it.
     I assume it being in a plastic bottle it may not set up as quickly but I don't know.

     Radiation Sickness Meds in addition to Potassium Iodide
     
     a start.
     
     
     
     
     
     http://survivalblog.com/prussian_blue_for_radioactive/
     
     Prussian Blue for Radioactive Isotope Exposure by P.H.
     
     Prussian Blue (“PB”) is a safe treatment for ingested radioactive isotopes that a person may have been exposed to from a dirty bomb or nuclear explosion. It does not protect against radiation, nor treat radiation sickness (there are supplement and drugs that help, see below.) It does not protect against all known radioactive substances (i.e., you would want to take Potassium Iodide (KI) as well to protect against radioactive iodine from a nuclear explosion.) It isn’t a substitute for evacuating out of the path of fallout, or for taking shelter from fallout in a protected place. It’s just one useful tool in the toolbox should you and your family be exposed to airborne particles of radioactive elements. And it can happen: the number of countries with nuclear programs is growing every year, there are nuclear reactor accidents (check a map for the reactors upwind of your home), and we often hear about terrorists wanting to make “dirty bombs” that spread radioactive material around.

     Because of the increasing war threat between the US and Russia, I would like to add some information that might be of help. The link below is British from 1959. It was made at a time Western countries still had working civil defense (CD) programs and was directed towards boots on the ground NCO equivalent personal. It contains no cartoon characters such as many America CD films of that era. While some of the materials are dated all are explained clearly and worth watching because various parts can be adjusted to current times. But I would suggest sheltering longer than what was recommended.

     When The Grid Goes Down...
     Aug 12, 2017 11:00 PM
     
     Authored by Jeremiah Johnson (nom de plume of a retired Green Beret of the United States Army Special Forces) via ReadyNutrition.com,
     
     Let’s just say that the unthinkable becomes the real and happening. Let’s take this article and go over it. This will be a segment in three parts, the next ones being immediate actions taken at work and at home. I’m hitting on traveling first, as there are so many vacationers jaunting around happily over the landscape. All kidding aside, traffic is congested during the summer, extending traveling time on the commutes. Let’s game the scenario, and here it is.
     Here’s the scenario:
     
     You’re cruising down the highway in your 2013 four-door sedan, having just dropped the kids off twenty minutes ago to the swim club. Now you’re on the open highway with a heavy traffic flow…about 5 miles from the edge of town and 7 miles from work. You’re listening to the radio, when suddenly it crackles and goes dead, along with your engine. You look around and pumping the brakes manage to slow down and then drive off the road onto the shoulder, just feet away from the back bumper of another vehicle.
     
     
     
     The vehicle comes to a stop, and you try the ignition again. You look at your watch, a Casio G-Shock, to find there is no display. You reach for your cell phone. Nothing. It’s dead. There are perhaps a dozen cars around you…half to your front and half to your rear. All of them have stopped, and most of the drivers have gotten out. You hear the sound of an engine, and looking up, see a ’58 Ford pickup truck weaving in and out of the stalled traffic, moving toward your rear, away from town. The book “One Second After” has just played out in real life. The United States has been attacked by an EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) weapon. You’re 15 miles from home, and the “S” has hit the fan.

     Quick Trick for Keeping Your Feet Warm in Freezing Weather
     Are you sick of your feet freezing every time you go outside in the winter? Sometimes even multiple socks won’t stop your toes from going numb, especially if there’s snow on the ground. There’s a really easy way to keep your feet warmer that only costs a few dollars (if that).
     
     I learned this trick a few years ago, but for the life of me, I couldn’t remember where I’d learned it. I searched Youtube for a while and eventually found the video where I first heard the idea. It’s by IntenseAngler, and it’s really simple.
     1. Take the sole out of your shoe and set it face down on a cheap dollar store sun shade.
     2. Use a Sharpie to trace an outline around the sole.
     3. Use scissors to cut out the outline you just drew.
     4. Put the sole back in your shoe, and put your new custom fit insert into your shoe as well.
     This works really well for keeping your feet warm because not only does it add insulation between your foot and the ground, it also reflects your body heat back onto your foot.

     HI ALL
     
     
     
     PERSONAL AND
     FAMILY SURVIVAL
     Civil Defense Adult Education Course
     Student Manual
     
     http://www.pages.drexel.edu/~ina22/+301 ... TAMINATION
     
     This manual is prepared to give participants in the courses held under the Civil Defense Adult Education Program a permanent record of the matters covered in the course and to serve as a basic home reference on Civil Defense. It does not pretend to be a study of all aspects of the problem.
     No claim is made that this manual is any encyclopedia on Civil Defense or that it is a definitive study. Rather, the manual should be considered to be a collection of basic information needed by families to enhance the chances of their survival under nuclear attack.
     Civil Defense, as part of the total program of national security, affects every unit of government and has heavy implications for most aspects of the individual citizen's daily life. Civil Defense is such a broad and dynamic field of public and personal endeavor that it must be said: that this manual represents the status of official policy and expert opinion as of the date of publication.
     The Civil Defense Adult Education Program is managed for the Office of Civil Defense, Department of Defense, by the U.S. Office of Education, Department of Health, Education, and Welfare. The Office of Civil Defense sends the Office of Education the latest Civil Defense information. The Office of Education, in turn, sends the information to the States and, through them, to instructors of the courses. The instructors have special training to teach this special course and are furnished the latest information available pertaining to it.
     Instructors are instructed to modify the course so that it has the greatest possible meaning and benefit for the people in a particular class. As part of the course, the local Civil Defense Director, or a representative of his office,is invited to make a presentation so participants can understand how Civil Defense operates in their community.
     No given instructor can be expected to know everything about Civil Defense. However, instructors are furnished with standard works, such as Effects of Nuclear Weapons, prepared by the Department of Defense and published by the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, and others of the type represented in the bibliography at the end of the manual.
     The Civil Defense Adult Education Program is now presenting survival information in over 40 States, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia to over 1 million adults a year. The Government commends participants in the course for their prudent interest in personal and national survival.
