Wow Whitebear, that’s awesome. I will never understand how it is okay for drug companies to poison us under the guise us "curing" us. It is all a sham. They cause other issues so they can keep you drugged up and they make more money Stat…

Yes, everything Yeti_2015 said!
Personally I would not let anyone in my house. I worked at a job for 15 years and not one of those people I worked with had ever been to my house. There were only 2 who even knew where I lived and that I would have trusted to let in.
If I were to go to a meeting I would be there “just to learn because I really haven’t gotten anything started yet and feel I need to do something”.

If you have any skills for prepping (canning, hunting, etc.) I would probably low ball that too and just say something like “I’ve been thinking about trying some canning”.
For me it takes a very long time to build trust in a person. I don’t really know why, have just always been wary of people.

All that being said, when you find a good person, I would hang on to them. We have been wanting to do some major upgrades to our house, but haven’t because there are not any contractors we feel we can trust. Well we purchased the property below us that had termite damage, and the pest control people sent out a couple contractors to fix it. OMG they were awesome. Polite, conservative, christian, cleaned up, and did an outstanding repair job. Even leveled a door we thought we were going to have to replace. So I got cards from them for friends who are in the same boat we are, with not sure who to trust. I could have walked those guys past a closet full of MRE’s and would have been totally comfortable with it, and that is VERY unusual for me. Obviously this isn’t the norm, go with your gut feelings and spend lots of time observing the others.

My Husband was worried about that yesterday when they were saying that there would be no LE response. He said the looters would be out in force.
They should be shot on sight.

Our WM is already out of regular gas due to “supply issues”. I would imagine another hurricane anywhere on US mainland will only add to those issues. :eek:

Edit: Just saw where they ordered mandatory evacuation of the FL Keys.

General Family Preparedness • Re: Prep Concerns for Korean ‘Conflict’

I am definitely ramping up, catching up. Need to get wood hauled down this week to cut, get some supply orders in, go through and reinventory everything that isn’t sealed and marked (stuff on shelves, in cupboards, etc.), restock batteries, fill water storage. I guess really I need to do everything we would normally do for winter prep, except a bit faster / sooner!

And yes, stop terrorizing the puppy!

Glad your son is safe RM. Saw some pictures of the damage down there. They will be cleaning up for a while :( and it isn’t over yet.
We don’t get hurricanes, but we do get ice storms, and keep lots of water just for the purpose of flushing!
Saw this morning where places were charging 40+ $$ for a case of water :x I hope they prosecute those places! Gas has already gone up here, and we are a LONG way from TX.
