Re: What have you added to your preps this week?

Well, I took a canning workshop last week. I knew how to can but hadn't actually done it -and I did not have the humongous pot. All my food preservation to date had been dehydrating, quick pickling, salting and waxing (cheese). I bought a kit (it was cheaper than all the various parts). Yesterday I...

Re: Something Wicked This Way Comes

Most news reports are saying the chance of a nuclear exchange are pretty low. The rhetoric aside...N. Korea should (I Hope) know that they wouldnt exist if they did decide to start a fight with America.

Re: Vacuum Sealer

It will extend the "quality" in my experience. Things like crackers that may go stale or soft. But my biggest problem with vacuum sealers for items not going in a deep freezer..the cost to do the vacuum sealing does not offset the extra 6 months or year you could extend some perishable foo...

Re: Plan on Gardening? Here's A List Of Seed Companies That Will Send You Catalogues

Well, I'm utterly disappointed with my purchases. Shrubs have died when my others non fancy kind are doing well. Potato plants from my old potatoes are doing better than the seeds one I got. Beet plants I got from Veseys are covered with those pesky "purple dots" whereas my Walmart-seeds ...

Re: cyber attack

This is an interesting topic. 10 years ago who would have thought it would be "on the radar"..... I'm hearing more about this from people who dont prep vs. those who do. That is what is getting my attention vs. the usual doomsday reactions to the news of the week. (Thanks Alex Jones for se...

Re: US elections

This is a old thread now, but I came across a article that in a more comprehensive way better expresses my thoughts on how trump is not the problem only the symptom. The system is the problem.

Re: Gold bars

Look up specific gravity. Not that hard. Weigh it then drop it in a measured volume of water. Subtract volume of water. Divide weight by volume. There are charts. Gold and lead are very different. SG is (in my experience) used when dealing with liquids but the transition between lead and gold when ...
