OC, you had me til you brought the babies into it...lol. I don't want to deal with diapers and such any more...lmao. If there is an event and grandkids start coming along, I'm going on a "long hunt" for a couple years until they get the little boogers housebroke....lmao.

 

Completely agree with your thinking! But the little voice at the back of my head reminds me that a lot of the women in my family get pregnant at the drop of a hat (there's a reason we don't think it's weird when 300 people show up at my family reunions). And since contraceptives may not be in good supply post-SHTF, having SOME plans for dealing with babies just seems practical to me.

 

 

Awesome links tho and the couple I've looked at seem to be very informative and help give ideas even if not exactly what someone would be able to do.

 

That's how I hope people take them. You can't know for sure what someone else's level of expertise is, even if they have a killer blog or website. But if you take these more as a thinking exercise - or as a prompt to try out some of the skills, recipes, etc. NOW, before you absolutely need them and while medical treatment is readily available - they could prove to be pretty helpful.

I always told my wife that I planned our deployment for when our youngest was born...lol. I agree that if anything long term happens, babies are going to be born or we are surviving only for our selves, as then mankind will no longer exist. Plus it may help People save money on their bills which will help alot in this economy.

 

Thanks again for all the links. I am even hoping to get my wife looking at some of them.... maybe she will take a more interested approach then.

Hope it works! I wholeheartedly recommend the Survival Mom blog (http://thesurvivalmom.com/) for women who maybe aren't fully on board yet. She's very persuasive and the overall design and tone is friendly and appealing.

Thanks. I cheated and showed her mom this site awhile back and she started looking at "prepping" more (already gardens and cans and was ready for blizzards) and started talking to the wife about it...lol. She takes a more active role, but usually that just means not yelling at me as much about it...lmao.

Everthing look's great and Thanks again..

BUT what others have already said..

That SOUND'S easy...I can do That !!!

 

No you CAN'T in this case..This will get you Dead ..

 

Vodka making from pottatoes...............................

 

It Is 'STILL" useing copper or stainless steel pot to 'Vapor' the alcohol off the "WERT"..

PLEASE!!!!

 

Dont waste your food...The cost and set up better be in place before TSHTF.How are you going to measure the strength of alcohol with out a "Proof and Tralle Hydrometer "...Realy dont know what that is...????????Than dont even try it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh and Its 200,milliliter per 5 galon of WERT that need's to be collected off the begining of a "RUN" and pitched (or used to clean a paint brush,start a fire)BUT use it anyother way and your dead!

 

 

If and When you need to have Alcohol..trade for it..

 

Disclamer:never brake the Law....never never "Bootleg'' it aint worth the jail time..or the IRS looking at your past income!!

 

JMO..thats all ..

Side note:

 

You can legally have a small still and make liquor for your personal consumption up to a set number of gallons a year. Don't remember the exact amount right now. However, you do need to fill out the proper governmental forms in order to stay out of trouble. Same with beer...the bottle neck that I foresee with beer is going to be the hops.

 

 

 

And what 101Matt said about the proper materials for the still and dumping the first part of your run is dead on.

TY..and Its "JUST WHAT I HEARD"...

Cost and effect...Sorry Ill stop now..

here is a better video on gutting a deer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ewCVFkkyQC4

 

Fantastic! I will post that on Pinterest so others see it there, too.

 

And I hope that if people know of more or better ways to do other things that are posted here, that they'll share. Or simply post what they know, like the helpful and practical points listed earlier about how "making your own vodka can be illegal" and "be smart enough to realize how much of your resources you're spending just to get booze" - that's every bit as useful (or more so) than some of the links I've shared here!

OMG OregonChick YOU ROCK! I am so excited to check these links out. I have a SURVIVAL board on pinterest too.

I am so inundated with amazing books that you all have recommended. They have been arriving in a steady drizzle.

Only one I dont have is the cat book you recommended. I figure any day now.

Thanks for posting all these. YOu guys wont see me for a while now. I have SO much reading to do lol

<3 Happy HOlidays

 

Thought I'd just start a thread that I can revisit to "dump" all of the great things I find on Pinterest.

 

I had considered trying to add to existing threads or start new ones in various other forums, but realistically, that would wind up taking too much time for me to actually do it. (As it stands, I already have more than 600 prepping-related "pins" that I've saved on Pinterest.)

 

Hope you find some of these useful! I'm going to try to keep them grouped by topic within this thread as much as possible so you can browse through quickly... I'd also LOVE to see what links everyone else has to share!

    • This is a great inspiring article. I am pretty much pleased with your good work. You put really very helpful information.
       
    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
