the Newell Corporation owns most of the home DIY canning biz these days – but Ball and Harvest Day are NOT the same company nor is the manufacturing necessarily done at the same plants with the same QC controls & quality ….

if you think you are guaranteed Ball quality at the cheaper Harvest Day pricing – think again ….

Nice thing about Alaska, there just isn’t that many cops. In the 300 mile stretch between North Anchorage (Wasilla) and Fairbanks I think there are like 3 or 4 state troopers for the whole road. That and it is not uncommon for people to “borrow” equipment from road construction sites on the side of the highway to clear accidents or move the moose that get hit, as long as the site is within 30 miles or so of where the equipment is needed. Although that always freaks out the tourists when you tell them you have to go 10 or 20 miles down the road to grab a loader to pull them out of the ditch, and then show up a hour later in a loader that has random company or state markings on it.

so if someone has a flat and no spare – OK to ”borrow” a tire off your vehicle and leave you stranded ? … rummage thru someone’s garage for a tool you don’t happen to have … I’m guessing it’s all OK until it happens to U – that’s usually the way it is – kind of Robin Hood but only helping yourself – in this country we just lock Robin up – other countries chop off a hand – and then there’s good old one-on-one firing squad for the countries that have their poo poo together …

if that piece of equipment you ”borrow” was intentionally parked for needed servicing – you blow the engine or ruin the drivetrain – cause damage to other property sometime during your ”borrow” – you just leave your name & address and $10,000 on the seat to start the repairs?

I did some more inventory and consolidation of supplies with my incremental purchases. That involved getting batteries in the battery tote, medical supplies checked for exp. dates and sorted into the appropriate totes.

Ordered a few books from Chelsea Publishing which is/was having a sale. Those were on butchering and forest permaculture.

Hunting season is also coming up so yourself could pack your freezer or i’m sure you could find someone that would be willing to give you the meat. if you are looking to go the freeze dried route look for sales that are going on they are a great way to start stocking up.
