Terrorism & other Man made disasters • Re: They Are Playing With A Revolution

I am thinking it could be get ugly. One side does not even want to have a discussion, others getting paid to agitate, and more people out screaming to kill or yelling for blood, Our leaders not condemning the behavior, The media is distorting everything that get said, people already starting to fight each other. A few more instances of this and a situation like in Ukraine with a sniper and the fuse is lit.

Food & Water • Re: how to keep bread fresh?

One of the problems with wheat and oats and such in the US is the practice of spraying it with a herbicide to help with earlier harvesting. Another one is all the garbage they put in it for mass production to supply the grocery shelves. I go with certified organic wheat so I know its not been poisoned. And if you really want to get fussy you can go with Spelt wheat but of course at a additional cost.

Up here in Northern Minnesota, I have found many of the local regional nurseries don’t care about the growing zone. Be careful of what you buy and just read label’s and do some research and talk to other locals. If there is a dollar to be made never put absolute trust in the people making that dollar.

then they aren’t much of a nursery and won’t stay in biz very long – who buys twice from a source that don’t know their own biz? ….

There is not much of a selection of local nurseries in the area. This area is a Zone 3 with a small area of Zone 2. The University of Minnesota is constantly working on fruit trees and such to grow in this area and some do good. But the few nursery’s do stock zone 4 and 5 items to sell you. Some winters are harsher than others and during the mild winters you will get some of them to grow, only to be winter killed during the harsher winters. If you don’t think people will sell you stuff that , never mind.

Economic Disasters • Re: So for investors who hold physical gold and silver, 2017

February 19, 2017 Northern Freeman 0

It seems to me that people that prep for different aspects of what they think will happen also differ on PMs. I agree with it goes to a 90% people die off that PM will be everywhere if you look for it, but if it is just a major economic downturn and massive inflation, a couple hundred silver ounce coins or gold could go a long way. To bet on just one situation could be devastating. At the same time, items like playing cards, soap bars, salt and pepper and such might be easier to barter with for other small items. Who knows, it might be a major down turn and then a 90% die off. A little PM just might make it more easier through a down turn and make it possible to survive the 90% die off if it happens. Why take a chance, if you got it get it.

Guns • Re: Cast reloads for .223?

February 15, 2017 Northern Freeman 0

Assorted wheel weight lead makes for a good hard alloy, if you want it harder just add some superhard alloy and some tin to it to get where you want. Another trick is to quick cool or quench you bullets after casting and then stand them up together in a pan of water with just the top uncovered and run a torch over them to soften the tip. Soft tip hard cast bullets

I am sure glad I don’t have to worry about all this. The snow is waist deep and it about -54 wind-chill. About to snow up here is a daily fact starting about the end of Oct. As a matter of fact we look forward to the snowy days, that means it will have to warm up. Our standard routine up here is top off the gas tank and get a couple of gallons of milk, everything else is already stocked.
