Re: December2017 - What Did You Do to Prep This Week?

Couldn't get on the last 3 days, so couldn't update...Got the last 2 roosters and their coop/run moved over next to the rest of the flock.

Also got another 100 pounds of oats...prepping against 2000 pounds of cranky mares if they don't get their oats!

Re: December2017 - What Did You Do to Prep This Week?

The not-so-temporary chicken coop is FINISHED! We got the wire up over the frame over the top, and got it wired to the supports, and wired down at the edges. Then, husband made the ramp and attached it, we put in the dividers for the nest boxes (4 REALLY roomy nest boxes) and I got the chopped straw...

Re: Found a Hole in my Preps!

We're looking for a source for concertina wire....we'll put it along the fence lines, and plant thorny berry bushes.to grow up through it and cover it...they'd only see the bushes, and then tangle with the wire if they tried coming over/through the fence...

December2017 - What Did You Do to Prep This Week?

Starting this off. Yesterday, spent several hours on the roof of the roof of the "temporary" chicken coop...putting down rolled roofing, after slathering on the adhesive. Should keep the rain from ruining the wood of the roof (as well as the crap from the chickens that WILL insist on perch...

Re: Found a Hole in my Preps!

might be seeing an uptick in this kind of activity - where you never saw it before ... the cartel's two legged pack mules are in a spiral down because of the immigration enforcement - not only the border - but also cutting them off for the reasons for coming into the US ... https://theconservativet...

Re: Found a Hole in my Preps!

The suspicion is that it's drug smugglers...apparently, they steal the horses to transport their loads to the "pick-up point', then abandon them. (Found this our from the friend who's an Arizona Ranger) Apparently, there have been several incidents in my area. Some never got off the properties ...

Found a Hole in my Preps!

An incident a couple of days ago pointed out a hole in my preps :o I need to get some TRAIL CAMS and get them set up by my corral. A couple of days ago, my husband went out to feed our animals about an hour after getting home from work...he found one of my horses with our 20 foot lunge line (which h...

Re: EMP-Korea Concerns & Discussions #8 (NOV 2017)

It's one thing to speculate on potential apocalyptic events, quite another to suddenly realize it's not just something to debate, but you're actually facing it in the "now" sense, immediate future. Not the easiest thing to wrap your brain around. England faced the same thing with Hitler. ...

Re: Smokers, propane vs electrical vs others

When I get some of the more immediate projects done (animal housing, getting the well on solar, etc.) I plan on building an old-fashioned wood-fired smokehouse (and all that mesquite we have growing around the place would be perfect fuel for it!

Re: Type II Diabetes

Great progress, Whitebear! Another thing that can help (with both the weight loss AND the diabetes) is the South Beach Diet. It was developed by a cardiologist, and many of his diabetic patients who went on it were able to reverse their Type II diabetes. There are some REALLY good recipes in the coo...

Re: SALT and SUGAR

Already have plenty of salt stored, and probably more sugar than I'll use the rest of my life. Considering that I use probably LESS than 5 lbs per year (and that's mainly for baking pies or making jams/jellies) what I already have will last FAR beyond the next 40 or 50 years. For sweetener, I mainly...

Re: On hand supplies for TEOTWAWKI

I keep plenty of needles, thread, fabric, patterns, and "notions" (buttons, snaps, zippers, etc) on hand...people need to have clothes, and being able to make, mend, and repair clothing will be essential. Can sew either by hand or machine (have a WORKING treadle machine for SHTF)

Re: On hand supplies for TEOTWAWKI

ForwardPreppers, I have sewn deer hide on my sewing machine, and rabbit skins can be sewn either on a machine or hand sewn. One thing I DO suggest though, is to have SEVERAL metal THIMBLES on hand, to help you push the needle through the hide. You'd need thimbles anyway, for helping you to push the ...

Didn't plan on doing any shopping today, but husband decided he wanted to go to Target, Walmart, and the farm/ranch store this morning, so ended up finding some good bargains: InstantPot....normally $130, on sale for $79 (it's a multifunction, programmable cooker--2 pressure cooking modes, and sever...
