Re: A Photo Essay on the Great Depression

Both my parents grew up in the depression. They told us about the food lines and waiting to get a job. It affected them their whole lives. Even though we grew up poor, my dad made sure we always had a pantry full of canned goods. I never understood his obsession until recently. My parents also grew...

Well, I guess that means I won't be trying to grow it...we're at over 4,500 feet, so it would NOT do well here.

Re: HOME PRICES DROPPING?..OR RISEING

We FINALLY sold our old house last spring...after THREE years. We DID manage to sell it for a little more than we owed on it, but it was still FAR below what it was worth, and a lot less than we had paid for it, not to mention the money we had put into improvements. We were just glad to finally be r...

Re: Fall meat shortages

Good thing I have a freezer full of meat. That, plus my chickens and rabbits will keep us supplied. As for pasta, a grocery store here had a special on pasta a couple of months ago...49 cents a package. I stocked up, and it's all in 5 gallon buckets until needed.

Re: SEPTEMBER 2014 - What Did You Do To Prep This Week/Month

Canned 3 quarts of spaghetti sauce, then started another post of tomatoes that will also end up as sauce and be canned.

Re: Batten down the hatches AZ - more rain is coming!

I think my county took the rain from the rest of the state...at least it seems like it. Roads closed, bridges under water, etc. It eased off today, but we're supposed to get a bunch more rain tomorrow.

Re: how many different calibers

Yeah, I lost mine, too. One thing I DID find, was a slingshot that slings arrows. Have that, crossbow, and compound bow.

The URL is the same because they are "sister" magazines.

Re: Prepping related magazines

Actually, Hobby Farms and Urban Farms are different magazines (I've gotten them both) but I think they are published by the same company.

Re: Batten down the hatches AZ - more rain is coming!

Yep...my county seems to be smack in the middle of things...the city and county are giving away free sandbags...you just have to show up with a shovel, and fill them yourself. The base commander here sent people home early today, and my daughter (who works for the state) was told to keep her phone o...

Re: New Members, Welcome to our forum!

Welcome, Ellis21. For starters, start stocking up on food and water. You don't have to spend a fortune, just start getting "extra" of things you normally eat. Also, rice and dried beans are inexpensive, and store for a LONG time. Don't forget seasonings. Go to the "Getting started...t...

Re: What Would You Put in Your Cache?

I hear about folks putting handguns in their cache's.....but what always would bother me with that is.....if it's in a cache, how do you practice shooting it? Also, what if someone else finds it and takes your gun? It's not that big of a deal with a rifle or shotgun, but a handgun has to be registe...

Re: SEPTEMBER 2014 - What Did You Do To Prep This Week/Month

Unfortunately, not doing much of ANYTHING this week, except Dr. visits and dealing with insurance companies. We got rear-ended last Saturday, and we've been dealing with the aftermath. The ins. co. totaled our car--the tow company just picked it up this afternoon. Once we get the check for it (proba...
