Re: EATING WILD GAME

I am sure wild game is much healthier for you. They have not been turned into cannibals, eating the brains and spinal cords of their own. Who knows just how many cases of Mad Cow disease really exist?!

Re: What Did You Prep This Week

Hi, Dangphool, glad you found this thread. I personally like this thread best. Don't know why, guess cause it's not too technical or about guns, which I don't have. I have been trying to pare down and organize my condo contents since my daughter moved to Seattle. It's slow going, but it's going. I n...

Re: new prepper on vancuver island

Hi, fraser ! Islander here, too. I grew up in Comox Valley, seems like a century ago, when everyone that graduated Vanier just wanted to get out, now it is "the place to be." Go figure. My ex was in the navy down here in Esquimalt, we lived at Work Point for a number of years. Welcome aboa...

Re: What Did You Prep This Week

Thanks, susannah755 We are still in the thick of it, future son-in-law has just left to go pick up the u-haul, then the next couple hours will be organized chaos. My daughter has been the organizing force behind this, but she's down to her last nerve, didn't get to sleep until 2:30 am last night. Im...

Re: What Did You Prep This Week

Yesterday I lucked in at a thrift shop, bought a brand new, never used, oil lamp (with 2 spare wicks) for $8 :D A few days ago I cleaned out the wood fireplace at work and brought home a bucket of ashes. :? 8-) I think there is an experiment in my future.
