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.

Before one of my adult children "appropriated" my AK, I had replaced all the furniture with

"plastic/polymer" furniture, and did not notice an increase in recoil or a decrease in accuracy. Balance seemed a bit BETTER for me.

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.

South of the boarder  Rafael south American military industrial complex Other packages can be stuffed into these taco's or eggrolls or spring rolls depending on the origin of these little beauties. the left better pull their head out of their azz and wake up as well as the lame fake news media. we still have no idea of where approximately  199 suitcase nukes are lost in the 1980's nor a box car of other things that went missing when the former USSR fell every country under it's control had arsenals of all kinds of party favors. Janes directory of military hardware and Popular science and a few other sites can educate people to new technology I am very very disappointed at the Fitzgerald because it make us America look like a bunch of rubes billions of dollars or R&D years of testing trials and this ship cost between 1.7 billion to 2 billion dollars and cannot evade a floating barge it is more than a challenge to wrap my mind around especially once you see the Satellite track of the ACX Crystal it appears to have purposely diverted from course and intentionally rammed the Fitzgerald then took a 90 degree diversion then altered course north east then doubled back south west then south back toward the Fitzgerald and NO repeat NO signal supposedly came from the Fitzgerald but from the ACX Crystal and with a time discrepancy of over an hour and there had to be backup weather hand held or alternate communications onboard  not to mention if the alphabet soup watch all and knows all why was a strike on a 2 billion dollar vessel not noticed were they watching miley cyrus twerking  GPS military is within 1 foot where are all the billions of dollars pissed away by our government going who the hell watches the watchers and why have a few hundred people tasked to watch and duty it is to protect and defend our people in harms way ? I want heads to roll court-marshals satellite companies fined engineers fired tracking and control officers and staff stripped of their classifications in all levels that had access to this intel in eal time because now who in the hell believes we are a world power this makes us look like a paper tiger run by fools and every company that had a hand in building that ship should be drug through the ringer fined fired from government contracts restricted from bids if their equipment was at fault and it should ba open transparent and all the guilty should be made public. Why am I so upset because those 7 people were left to drown to save the other on that ship locked in waiting to die all the while knowing what would happen once that hatch was closed and probably in the dark looking for air pockets trying to stay alive hoping beyond hope some one could break through or find an alternative hatch and get them out from a stranger than fiction supposed accident General Keene his version read like a script all the traffic could be seen on satellite in real time and he said "it was dark" 2 billion dollars cutting edge radar sonar and other computers a 360 degree bubble for out to at least 60 miles and that is what he had to say ? Susan Rice was more believable when she said Benghazi was started by an Internet video. we need to start calling him Susan and the other dip in the road Admiral John Kirby then press secretary under Obama his fictional account ought to win him a Pulitzer prize his acting an Oscar IMHO. if we ever need 3 test pilots to fly a rocket ship to  Uranus John McCain General Keene and Admiral Kirby  just to round out the crew Nancy Pelosi can run communications as she is an anus here maybe she can communicate with the Uranuses there.  Just a thought and an opinion I could or could not be mistaken or have misspoke about this poor misunderstood people
