It is strange but the Early English settlers claimed that the American Indian were lazy do nothing people. Still, they thrived and survived in a non-English society.
The foraged, hunted and fished at their leisure in stead of laboring in the fields. Who was wrong and who was right. Take the leisure time to go camping/ fishing/ hunting and practice your survival skills. Oh yeah, have some fun. :)

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.

Gardening • Re: fertilizer scarce

July 20, 2017 sageprice 0

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.

Cheap fishing line and pin pull alarms. These are normally used as hotel intrusion alarms. also called personal alarms can be had for $5 sold even at Walmart. I tried pull poppers and they get wet and are unreliable.

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.

Human health did not improve significantly until modern medicine stepped in. Soap was known by the Babylonians 5000 yrs ago. (yes I googled soap history). 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.

Nothing was said or implied to disguising your home, just don’t go dumb-ass crazy putting in all kinds of security that is visible, that would draw undue attention to you and your family, putting you in the spot light.

Totally agree, you can have a GRAY house by not advertising. Better a rose hedge than a blank wall. Better ducks than a roaming dogs. Better noise sensors than motion sensors. Better a delayed grass cutting than a manicured lawn. Blend in and slightly below the norm. Do not stand out.
