Re: Go Tenna

And one of us has a radio license so we have that option as well. But a lot of people don't want to spend the extra money and go through the licensing process. At some point the license might not matter, but for now it does and a "friendly" option could be the Go Tenna which is cheaper tha...

Re: Go Tenna

You are right, not everybody would spend money on communications. You can always yell out your back door or get a couple of tin cans and some string. I put value on a people powered system that is more secure. It's all about choices. :D

Go Tenna

We have just ordered a 4 pack of these. The network appears to be expanding and they are upgrading to allow more "hops". Anyone else tried these yet?

Re: TGIF~ Stocking up on Drugs ~

My m-i-law caught mrsa in the hospital. After trying to get it under control for over a year the hospital treated some sores she developed with silver dressings. Worked to start clearing it up within a few days and several weeks later it was totally resolved. Silver is a good thing to keep around. N...

Re: Storing food across temperature extremes?

Freeze-dried food can be stored at temperatures up to 23C safely and is not bothered by freezing. Canned food should be stored in a cool dark location. High acid foods such as canned tomatoes and canned fruit should be used within about 18 months and low acid (most vegetables) are good for 2-5 years...

Re: would you live here?

I'm in my early 60's. Would I choose to live without running water, indoor plumbing and power? I remember the farm when there was no running water, power or indoor plumbing and going to the outhouse in the middle of winter, turning on the lanterns at night, and pumping water by hand out in the yard ...

Re: Storing Propane Tanks/Cooking During a Power Outage

We have a number of different options in our house, but if I was in an apartment I would probably go the butane route. They can be found really reasonably priced (ours was $14) in local Chinatown and the butane refills last quite a while and come in 5 packs often. You get a single burner which would...

Re: Peanut Butter

We are keeping the powdered peanut butter for rv use and emergency use mainly, but it works really well in smoothies, I can see that it would work well to make peanut butter frosting, etc. Some of the brands are sweeter than others, but they do taste like peanut butter. We have tried it on toast and...

Re: Peanut Butter

We have picked up several of the new peanut butter powders. Just add water and mix and ta da...peanut butter. There are several brands available and you might want to taste small amounts as some are sweeter, some are peanuttier.
