Re: Have you built your own solar dehydrator?

I've built one, as well. 2x4sfor the main framework, with racks made of lath strips and screening. Also have screening stapled to the top and 3 sides of the main framework, with a flap of screening for the front to help keep critters out. It can e used as either a drying rack, or as a storage rack f...

Re: MAY 2017 - What Did You Do To Prep This Week/Month?

Since my dehydrator died on me--we were right in the middle of dehydrating a bunch of watermelon (dehydrated watermelon comes out like CANDY, because the sugars are concentrated) so it was VERY disappointing--I went ahead and ordered a new one. All metal, 10 trays (about 12x14) rear-mounted fan/heat...

Re: MAY 2017 - What Did You Do To Prep This Week/Month?

First, daughter and I went to the vegetable distribution (@ 60 lb of veggies for $10.) and ended up with watermelons, honeydew melons, red onions, tomatoes, mini peppers, green and yellow/orange bell peppers, yellow squash, and cucumbers. Then, after going home and unloading, daughter started proces...

Re: Social Media is Wonderful and Cell Phones Too

Lights go out, park the truck and go about the usual chores. Pay visits to the neighbors, talk over coffee....I have a terrible habit of leaving the phone on the kitchen counter all day anyways. I think the thing is more a burden than anything else.. I do the same with my phone...I'm constantly for...

Definitely on "chic watch" today...the two that had "pipped" last night were hatched this morning, and now a third one is in the process. Waiting for the rest of them to start, now.

Re: MAY 2017 - What Did You Do To Prep This Week/Month?

Worked on the stable a bit this morning...put up some support beams for the roof joists. Now we're to the point of needing to get the plywood to start roofing and siding. On the way to grocery shopping, went and bought myself my Mother's day present...a tool belt/apron, a set of B&D 20v lithium ...

Re: What Do You Expect To Achieve in a GDS

If we had a major "grid down" situation, my response would be this: 1. Since work would be canceled (No electricity/grid, no computers. Since that's what my job is, not much point in us being there) I would instead spend the time working HERE on the property...stable/hay barn to finish; go...

Re: MAY 2017 - What Did You Do To Prep This Week/Month?

Since our house in town now has tenants in it, took money from the rent to toss into my credit union savings account toward a "repair fund." After I reach my repair fund goal, I'll put the money towards paying down/off bills, in addition to what I have going towards my "non-bank-based...

Re: Making a documentary looking for preppers

tevba, I'll give the same reply as I did in the Oklahoma section...what "preppers" do now is simply what generations past did as a part of "everyday living". As to what freedom is, it's the freedom to live our lives as we see fit, without nanny-state government (whether fed, stat...

Rice (50 lb bag at Costco under $15) Wheat, barley, oats, and corn (all available at the feed store for $15 or under for a 50 lb bag), extra garden seeds, heck, I could even get a couple of pigs and maybe even a cow or two! Already have the goats and chickens for milk, meat, and eggs, in addition t...
