    Like it or not !!!!

    so Yahoo picked up on the silo condos.... Then the small house expose... Prepping and downsizing is now a fact of life.... How many people totally missed the % chance of a solar flare screwing up life in the episode with Jack Joe????? 12% says the experts in the next decade.... That's one in eight !!!!! How many of you know people who dropped 10 or 20 bucks in the mega millions lotto jackpot last week?????? The odds were 1 in a million + !!!! How about those that drop mega bucks when the pick six at a local horsetrack goes over a million bucks... I know those people too!!!! If you are reading this ... this is preachin to the choir.... but understand and let those you love understand... this isn't an IF it happens thing....it's a WHEN it happens thing... I am fortunate to have a great wife who is at the forefront of the effort... but it was unreal how they slipped that 12% chance through in about 2 seconds.... Unbelievable...!!!

    Jerky - food of the gods

    LOL.... all the Winn-Dixies have closed over here in MS... Being of Swedish heritage... have had herring in more ways than you can imagine including a few regrettable ones. i Like the marinated ones in dill and onion. Had some smoked king salmon in Seattle last fall that almost made me and the wifey cry it was so damn good. Actually smoked some catfish a few years ago (LOL) back in boy scouts in the method described above... was pretty dang good. Keep it in the smoke and right on the edge of the coal circle....

    variety is the spice of life.

    LMAO.... I am another that will drink anything except Scotch. Vodka can be changed to your liking by infusing herbs, fruits, berries and the like... Never tried putting Cherries in a bottle of Jack???? Also... to any high dollar tequilla drinkers out there... (including those that aren't legally allowed to drink) Camarena is about half the price of Patron, Don Julio, Cabo Wabo and I promise after the first shot you can't tell the difference. And the first shot is very good on it's own merits....

    Jerky - food of the gods

    I agree with Vis... that is the easiest way... just be sure to be in the smoke zone and not over the heat directly... (will cook it rather than dry it). Looking forward to trying this method with some fishies...

    Jerky - food of the gods

    The stuff is really good !!!! If I say so myself. The article quoted below says it will keep (sealed) for two weeks unrefrigerated, but I bet if you vacuum packed it... A long, long time. Looking for the next beef specials already !!!!
  15. Welcome Nana.... good thread to say hi.... lol Vicious.... going for 6 hours at 170 and see how it goes..... so I can check it when I get home from work.... got a great recipe with soy, brown sugar, and a little heat.... will give a report on Wednesday... Oven works well .. if you are dealing with really high moisture items... may need to prop open the oven door.... Film at 11....

    Where Do They Get The Money

    A ten pound bag of dry beans yields 12,2 cup portions of vac. sealed beans.So thats 12 days of beans.A little at a time.Rice is next. Canning meat when you get the EXTRA is whats next. I have the same problem, wondering where they got the MONEY...WE all could spend 30grand on food and Weapons and gear.Sugar 30 grand would purchase me 5 achors and a well than Im set..JMHO I hear ya Matt and Silver..... we came home today with 2 soup mixes and 2 bags of tuna and a few dried fruits.... It was a winner day for me and J.... we are now a few days ahead of the rest... yesterday the MSR burner was a WIN.... Anything someone does is a WIN... not being a cheerleader ... just rooting for the real folk....

    High value skills

    Well Said Snake. I think we all should be mindful of the truths you told. Vetting of those you wish to bug with is more important than any knowledge or supplies you might possess.

    too funny Vicious... and I did see the "man" thing Dog.... but it ain't nothing but a thing...

    High value skills

    Hear Hear !!!! We are all striving to learn and be as prepared as we can be.... but let's be honest alot of prepared people will go brain-dead when things go crazy. Some may be injured and all those plans go out the window. People who can think outside the box, container, or bunker will be in short supply and high demand. Knowledge and skills are teachable and can be learned. Give me Survival 101's brain and eagerness to learn anyday! (Plus she isn't hard on the eyes !!! )

    dooms day prepers tonight

    I agree Kevin... they did down play the odds alot... my 2 cents says the imminent crisis is an Israel/Iran conflict which will bring about the oil situation. NatGeo was quick to point out about our oil reserves.. But since we would most likely be pulled into the war... The oil reserves would first be allocated to the military. 8 dollar gas will shut down the trucking industry alot. Which will leave us with gas AND food shortages. Hello Chaos.

    dooms day prepers tonight

    awesome Shawn.... learning from others is the most important thing we can do... I think the biggest fear right now is OIL and BAMA has left us at the mercy of the middle east.... If oil leaves us... or is in the hands of the military... (by necessity)... Food is a HUGE issue... foraging , hunting, and fishing are my current topics of study....
