pasted down from a old gent to Me. Lots of Vaseline thick cotton and wool socks. Better greasy feet than trench foot. damage to your legs and feet will not only hinder you but will stay with you for a life time. Full leg boots for rough areas, but realize, they are good protection for work NOT hiking.

Don’t bother. Large cities are already collapsing in on them selves. Like ancient Rome. The society of dependency is rotting from the inside. When one allows them selves to become reliant on another entity they lose the freedom of choice. This is what socialism is based on. You give to the lazy from the workers. This is not a help up but a press down. Keep the bleeding heart liberals away. If they believe in charity, let them do it with their own money not force me to do it with mine.

Each time I turn on the Tvee and hear a about some riot or terrible disaster I have to sit back and say “Hmmm, Two people died because they didn’t heed warnings. There are millions of Americans, Hmmm, there are no cures for stupidity, ignorance, or arrogance. Hmmm.” Then I turn off the BOOB TUBE, not wishing to be exposed to any BOOBish foolishness.

Ladies and Gents, You are Preppers, keep a low profile and avoid anything LOUD, ANNOYING, and STUPID. We hold one truth, survive beyond the ignorant, stupid and lazy. Asinine political views are a waste of time, funds, and resources. We have a constitution that gives them the Right to slit their own throats. Stick to prepping, you may have to fight a riot of them at your doorstep. If they aren’t afraid to die, I won’t be afraid to protect myself and shoot. Vermin are in every shape and color all claiming they are right and you are wrong for keeping to ones self. DO NOT GET SUCKED IN!!

August 15, 2017 sageprice 0

fresh fruitcake isn’t very good until it has been soaked with brandy or rum or both. It should sit for at least three months. Traditionally, fruit cake was made during the Autumn harvest when fruit was plentiful. Aging fruitcake greatly improves it’s flavor. Unfortunately most commercial fruitcakes are poorly lacking in flavor and aroma due to their quick to market approach.

A good example is what is happened in Iran. During their wars with ISIS etc., the pickers are making a fortune on the antiquities flowing out the country and they pay in gold. It is always the same and there will always be people with money and those who what more.

I dare anyone to show me a single documented time – in all of human history, when there was not a market for gold.

Swamp, Gold is only a medium to trade. All the rest are credit currency and have no real value. Yes, there will be a market some where, but getting it there is another story. Brazilian miners only get 1/2 the value on the world market. So here is the point. You Have GOLD, I have gas. What are you going to trade me to take you and your gold to some place to trade your gold. No one else has gas and gold is heavy. WHERE are you going to sell it and HOW are you going to get it there? Remember you are at your remote BOL and there are miles of criminals before you sell and what curency will you accept.

So you have lots of PMs, the dollar fails. Exactly who are you going to sell it to? Exactly who will give you the total value for it. If the past has any story to tell, you are going to hold it for 27 yrs to get full value. Can you survive that long to be able to recoup your investment? Pms are only good for short term events of 1-2 years. Okay you say the world market will buy, who is your transfer agent? What is his cut? Better a hunting lodge as an investment. They can be lived in and sold to a rich sports man later.

Sorry guys and Gals, but I have to ask the Big Question. Are you not preppers? Exactly where are you going to buy fertilizer if SHTF. Your Money is worth nothing, there is no fuel for the car to go get it and bad people are taking shots at you if you move around too much. A test of hydroponics fertilizer against, fish farming water or Miraclegro showed Fish water right up there with hydroponic fluids. The book “Solaris” has several chapters about “U” power (urine). As preppers one should have a bank of knowledge to pull from, not a credit card and a hardware store.

They are the same for all emergency situations and frugal living.
1. Food (Gardening, Foraging, trapping and hunting).
2. Clothing (proper low profile dressing for the weather).
3. Shelter, being able to build or find shelter. This includes lock-picking into abandoned structures.
4. Medical, sew up wound, set a bone, Treat infection without a drugstore (herbal).
5.Basic military training (make a weapon, handle weapons, stealth, and scouting).
That said you should know how to use a weapon for hunting already, how to climb a tree for scouting and setting up a tree stand,and how to field dress a dear quickly and quietly. You should be able to shelter in place if caught in a storm or just over night. Prepping is a test of your ability to adapt.

Cleanliness maybe next to Godliness but It didn’t help Longevity. Still, if I don’t do at least a sponge bath every other day I stink. If you are a stealth prepper you don’t want to make it easy for dogs or other sensitive noses to find you. I rather have a enemy pass me by than be scented a mile down wind. Pond water is fine to wash with and you can water the garden with it. If you have problems with that put on the compost pile.
