I recently added instant potatoes and milk to the larder. The potatoes are edible as a plain side dish would be better in something or with gravy as they are rather bland. The milk was bland also, but I added (a little too much) vanilla and 1-2 table spoons of surgar per quart which helped a lot. It also helped that I set it in the fridge for awhile to get cold. I didn't have a probelm drinking it straight, but then again I prefer soymilk to cow's milk in a glass. However, soymilk in my coffee that's just plain wrong.

I try to watch the sodium content on the canned stuff I buy, so I hadn't gotten into the Dinty Moore beef stew to a few weeks ago. I was surprized that I liked it. It didn't taste too salty to me even though it boasts a whopping 600 mg per can. I have at times had to live off my larder some of my meals weren't real thrilling, but I was never hungry. The wallyworld near me has a few varities of Mountain house meals they are next of my list to try.

 

As always buy what you eat and eat what you buy.

I replaced the wood furniture on my AK-47 with more robust and lighter plastic furniture. My AK-47 is my go-to MBR for my bug out kit. Next step, an appropriate sling and flashlight for it.

Just curious .... did the lighter weight plastic furniture alter the recoil or handling on the AK? Seems like there might be more felt recoil but I'm also curious about the weapon balance. Thanks.

One day I would love to own an AK-47 or SA vz.58 (Czech version similar to AK).

1. Put away another 25 lbs. each of pinto beans and rice - there was a sale at Krogers.

2. Put away 10 cans of mixed fruit.

3. Put away 5 cans of spam – wife won’t touch it now but I’m betting she'll scarf it down if faced with starvation.

4. Put away 5 pounds of dry pasta - another Krogers sale.

5. Continued conversion of one of my horse run-ins to a chicken coop. Plan to move 4 week old chicks from brooder box I built into new coop in a week.

6. Planned out the garden for planting - but still have to wait that final frost.

In Canada were not allowed AK-47's , But CZ 58's & CZ 858's we can own. I own afew CZ 858's & they rock, for what they are. One thing is that not a single part is compatable to the AK rifle, but just looks like one. LOL.

P210SIG, we had issued CZ 58's back when I was in army, we haven't do much of training with them, but even with little bit of that, those 58's were solid, simple and dependable with a lot of ammo available. That would be my primary weapon to choose after TEOTWAWKI. Nowadays 58's are being replaced with new type of weapons CZ 805 BREN A1, A2, a lot more modern type of weapons......

Reorganized the pantry, and bought 20 more cans of veggies and beans in less then 6 weeks we now have 100+ cans stockpiled. Thinking about getting a foodsaver. I also want to learn canning, anyone know of any places in Florida that teach this skill? Plus read a few chapters in the SAS survival book.

Bought various knifes and devices for popping windows and cutting seat belts. Wanted to test and view several for resale. I like the keychain type because if you ever run into a lake that one would be easiest to reach. As far as knives, there are so many good ones that depend on the application.

    • Animals are complicated and yes I can see where any animal could be a support animal, here is the kicker all animals are unpredictable and like people have good days and bad days. So let me just say I'll pass on meeting  wally, I may piss him off because I know I have eaten one of his family members and Wally may not like that. besides people have been attacked by their pets like mice rats gerbils cats and dogs much less anything with more teeth. Emotional support alligator                
    • Another fine mess,  Asteroids are smacking Earth twice as often as before, and that reminds me of Revelation 8:10- 12 -- 10 Then the third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star burning like a torch fell from heaven and landed on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. 11 The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters turned bitter like wormwood oil, and many people died from the bitter waters. 12 Then the fourth angel sounded his trumpet, and a third of the sun and moon and stars were struck. A third of the stars were darkened, a third of the day. I'm not saying that this event is close but who knows what or how many are the precursors to this event, if it is like a woman in labor as the Biblical narrative describes it will increase exponentially until the end, that in the face of all the increases of fire, flood, famine,earthquakes and astrological events reminds me of Luke 21:26 men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. as recently as a few years ago a large asteroid passed between the earth and the moon or as they call it a near miss, and NASA or anyone else spotted it before it was right on top of us, so for all of you who think science and technology can save us until we build a solar sail or anchoring rockets to attach to space threats it just is going to be a bad day for some of us IMO.
    • Lmao Protests, a punch thrown and provocative jokes as Louis C.K. performs in San Jose. Louis C.K. became one of the biggest stories in the #metoo movement in 2017, after he was accused of sexual misconduct, and admitted to masturbating in front of female comics. After stepping away from the spotlight, he began performing again in New York last year, generating more controversy for his comedy, including a set in late December that appeared to mock survivors of the Parkland, Fla., school shooting. The protest was organized by Enough is Enough Voter Project. Micheal Dauber, one of the protestors pointed out that San Jose Improv has acts booked through May, with no female headliners listed, “That speaks volumes,” Dauber said. Louis CK is not that funny to make a living off comedy he is just another jerk  IMO
    • The earthquake portion of the leading quotation of this post is working overtime. A micro earthquake struck early this morning in Malibu, where residents are already dealing with heavy rainfall and mudslides Thursday. A 2.8 earthquake was reported at 12:35 a.m. at a depth of just over one mile, with an epicenter just a few miles inland from Point Dume, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. For the second morning in a row, East Bay residents were jolted out of bed by an earthquake.  Wednesday morning's 3.4-magnitude quake hit at 4:42 a.m. Three small aftershocks followed: a 1.9-magnitude at 4:45 a.m., a 2.0 at 4:48 a.m., and a 1.1 at 8:52 a.m, centered near Piedmont and the Oakland hills along the Hayward Fault. The USGS pinpointed the epicenter near the intersection State Route 24 and Tunnel Road.
    • Models Can't Keep Up With Migrating Magnetic North Pole.The magnetic north pole is shifting at an unprecedented rate. Over the last 30 years, the rate of distance that the magnetic north pole moves per year has sped up, around 15km per year to around 55km per year, the Earth’s magnetic field, which assists with navigation. But the rapid and irregular movements of the north magnetic pole over the past three years have made the 2015 WMM (worlds magnetic model) inaccurate. Here is how important magnetic north is to navigation by land or sea. For every degree you fly off course, you will miss your target by 92 feet. For every 60 miles you , you will miss your target by one mile. Flying around the equator will land you almost 500 miles off target. Water, IE creeks lakes ponds or wells If you have never been there physically and guided by charts and a compass you could miss and if your not sure what the declination was be looking on the wrong side of magnetic north  the smaller the target or lack of visible landmarks and you may never find it.  Here is where a TOPO map could help if the region you in has enough changes in elevation if your on the great plains forget it. Dead reckoning by sight using trees to be able to see ahead or follow roads train tracks or use mountains or other sources is possible, that possibility is predicated on visibility bad weather fog, tree canopy or heavy ash from a volcano will impede your movement as well as ability to sight the sun moon or stars / celestial navigation points. My sense is to have up to date charts road and topo maps and try to validate them using google earth. Here is where I have attempted t expose the normalcy bias of those that think everything will remain constant, nature is not you friend, your never one with the universe, the only constant is death he and his buddy Murphy or Murphy's law are always to trip you up confuse you into making a mistake and we all make them you can stave them off if you remain calm and use your wits IMHO.
