(sigh) you CAN NOT help anyone when you need help yourself. That is the reason you prep. The man who comes begging is the very fool who refused to prep. They will never admit they were stupid, they claim they are victims. Victims of their own asinine actions. By surviving you can give them something that is free. Knowledge. Teach them what to forage for, how to make a fire, and responsible for themselves. There is NO FREE LUNCH. NO WORK NO EAT! :x

Construction Cornerstone • Re: Phillips screws vs regular screws

May 10, 2017 sageprice 0

I am not an authority on this but it was explained to me in the following way:
Anything with a circular thread is a screw.
As screw becomes a bolt if it has a nut on it if not its still a screw. (machine screw)
any difference in the head are only attempts to increase or spread the applied pressure to the surface. (cap screws verses flanged)
Any differences in the drive point are attempts at transfer more torque (twisting motion) to the screw. phillips vs slotted vs torx vs square vs hexhead (allen).
Thus is my complete knowledge on the subject.

Herbal medicine is no ONE PILL cure. A fever is not a easy indication of infection. It could even be a indication of an allergy to the very herb you just took or gave to your family. Be prepared to take the time to research and study more than one book or source. While I can set a bone and know some Antibiotic herbs, I am only now getting into antiviral herbs, there are so many viruses out there that even modern day researchers are still discovering new ones. So learn WHAT you are looking at before you try to cure it with an herb. :D:D

General Family Preparedness • Re: How do preppers keep from losing their minds?

April 20, 2017 sageprice 0

I started in on prepping because I saw a knowledge gap between the average dumb smuck and traditionalist. I store knowledge and I know enough to be able to keep it running well beyond any twenty year collapse of society. Simple things like Tromp pumps and atmospheric electricity will not run a fully electric house, but they will keep a lap top running for years. There are other bit and pieces like earth ground currents and Joule thief circuits that can recharge batteries to be used in radios and flashlights. These were old known phenomena that can still be tapped for emergency use. To a collapsed world these can be seen as MAGIC.
Now lets get to the point. All of these take effort and time. Foraging, hunting, wood harvesting, gardening, livestock care, carpentry, weaving, rope making, spinning, sewing, fishing, canning, butchering, smoking meat, etc, etc. Just when do you have time to go crazy. Quit fooling around and go chop some wood.

Traditional food preserving such as salting, dehydrating and canning all store well in root cellar environments. Don’t think it take a full blown cellar to store preserved food. Larger cellars are good for seasonal crops such as cabbage, apples and squash, jugs of cider and beer store well in the approximate 45-50% degrees of root cellars. Build 2 and make one a cool spot in the summer. :)

Hey Bee I was looking for a hand gun for my wife. I was told that I should never pick a hand gun for my wife. This was most adamant among female shooters. I should take her to a gun shop and let her choose. The feel of the grip, the weigh of the pistol, the trigger pull and how it responds to her when she fire it, are all up to her. DO NOT let someone else decide for you. Their choice is ‘theirs’ alone and never yours. Who knows maybe you will want a 45 mag.

New Study Fleshes Out the Nutritional Value of Human Meat

[snip]

Why did our early ancestors eat one another? Some scientists say it may have been because they were hungry. But as Nicholas St. Fleur reports for The New York Times, a new study suggests that humans aren’t particularly nutritious and speculates that ancient cannibals had other reasons for chowing down on their fellow bipeds.

At Gough’s Cave in England, for example, archaeologists found a large cache of human bones that showed evidence of defleshing and chewing, Becky Ferreira writes for Vice. The people who gnawed on those bones probably didn’t do so out of hunger; there were plenty of animal remains found within the cave, and some of the human bones appeared to have been marked with ritualistic etchings.

At the Gran Dolina cave in Spain, archaeologists found the butchered remains of 11 children and adolescents, who belonged to the species Homo antecessor. It is possible, writes Erika Engelhaupt for National Geographic, that the youths were “outsiders” and that the consumption of their remains served as a vicious warning to other groups.

Can you walk out the door right now and survive? Is your grab and go stocked and up to date. Can you live for one season out of your pantry.

While chemically getting the PH correct does only a little to correct soil fertility.

The fact that there is plenty of minerals from ash (see “slash and burn agriculture”) means that there is only a little to be added.

Hunting • Re: The Hunter/Warrior combo, how important is it?

March 15, 2017 sageprice 0

I’m not sure I got my point across. I believe is stealth over rapid fire, in defense over offense, guerrilla over formation.
You can spray the woods with your ARs but your just wasting ammo. Shoot and run means the enemy will waste their supplies, which will be limited by what they carry. Yours are in preplanned in small caches.
Even a 22 is deadly and locating the source is difficult, especially if you have been shooting in your territory at long distances. Remember a head shot is efficient. You are going after a kill not a trophy.
Even loose formations are easier to pin down than scattered guerrilla snippers. Vietnam taught us that, a very hard lesson.
In short, do not go looking for trouble, hide from trouble, and have the home field advantage.
