Re: April 2017 - What Did You Do To Prep Todayhis Week?

Husband and I got the last of the uprights and crossbeams for the first 2 stalls of the stable in place, as well as some "bracing" boards. After that, I went on a Lowe's run for the 2x8s for the roofing stringers, as well as 20 more 2x4's, and a 2nd "multi" ladder...it can go int...

Re: So how's this?

The military kids who go to the schools (elementary and middle school) on post here get preparedness lessons worked in to their regular school curriculum (writing assignments, math, etc.). Our local post is VERY big into preparedness, in fact. Big banner alongside the gate going in currently about N...

Re: EMP strikes

the lesser gender of the "in betweens" will suffer more also - going to be a male world .... Surely it will be different this time "we have Safe Zones" and we will not return to normal human behavior! I am certain the "In Betweens", as well as women and children will b...

Re: April 2017 - What Did You Do To Prep Todayhis Week?

Took husband to the PX to pick up his replacement computer (He had purchased the display model, but when he got it home, discovered that it couldn't connect to the Wi-Fi. Turns out, the ditz clerk had done a "reset" to clear it, but she did the WRONG reset, and wiped out the drivers :oops:...

Re: Check Your Kindle-'Alexa' App!!

No Kindle, (I prefer REAL books), no "Alexa" or "Echo", and no IPad. No "apps" on my cellphone (even texting is disabled.) Computer won't be downloading anything, either, because it's still running Windows 7, and no longer "supported", so no "updates"...

Nah...with nukes, you don't have to be close...you only need reasonable proximity.

Re: April 2017 - What Did You Do To Prep Todayhis Week?

Bought a circulated air egg incubator and egg turner today, since the broody hen has apparently decided that she didn't want to wait for the eggs to hatch before abandoning her post. So, got the incubator and moved the eggs from the nest into the incubator. I just hope that they still hatch. If not,...

Re: Practicing Your Defensive Pistol Skills at Home

Especially here in Comiefornia(Non-Castle state)....I have the distinct pleasure to have to retreat thru the entire house shouting "STOP OR I'LL SHOOT!!!" ...thru the whole house, during a home invasion scenario and only being able to pull the trigger when I reach the last room with no ot...

Re: How do preppers keep from losing their minds?

Do you really think any of these primitive memory devices will still be around or working in ten years? Swamp Exactly! Electronic entertainment is great for a short short term issue. Snowstorm, t-storm that takes out power. Until everyone's stuff needs charging all at once.... Look at the "cat...

Re: Northern Lower Peninsula Meet Up

Michigan preppers (heck, preppers in EVERY state!) are probably like preppers here in my corner of Arizona. 99.9% of preppers here are NOT on the forums. There are a whole lot more of them out there than you know. Many don't even CALL themselves "preppers", but that's EXACTLY what they're ...

Re: Rusty AR barrel

Glad to see you back, longrifle! Truck/motorcycle "disagreements" can be VERY nasty, with the MC usually losing the argument. Hope you're fully recovered, or at least mostly so. Some ammo is "dirtier" than others, and needs more serious cleaning of the bore than with "cleane...

Re: How do preppers keep from losing their minds?

Since this is posted in a Law forum, I am moving it to the "General Family Preparedness" section, where it is a better fit. However, I WILL leave a "shadow topic" with a link to the new location, for those who are confused by the move.

Re: Hello everyone!

Welcome from SE Arizona. Get out of "Commiefornia" as fast as you can! Arizona is MUCH more "prep friendly", PLUS we are VERY gun-friendly. "Constitutional Carry" state means you don't NEED to have a CCW, but if you want to get one, you can, unless you are a "prohi...
