Re: Bartering Items?

If you have done your homework "Prepping", you should not need to barter until things settle down. Some will disagree, but I think the death rate would be greater than 90% within a year and greatest in cities and areas with severe weather. If any event would happen, others will follow. Jus...

Re: Reserve Currency

The very rich did not comply and many shipped there gold overseas. That is why collectors can still buy antique U.S. gold coins in uncirculated condition today at modest prices! I wish the skeptics could visit Dubai and see how gold works. Dubai is now among a handful of cities, that the worlds elit...

Re: How Many Blueprints Do I Need?

Since it's just me, why do I need a basement? Storage, security, and life without central air and heat come to mind. While heat is the problem in Louisiana, I grew up in Northern Nevada and the easiest place to keep comfortable was the basement! With modern insulation you can have ideal storage whic...

Re: How Many Blueprints Do I Need?

+1 for a basement

Mine was a bit on the expensive side due to the area. Still the best dollars I spent! Swamp

Re: Reserve Currency

It is a matter of diversification for those who need a place to preserve wealth. I don't need another home, more land, or more supplies. As an associate told me - Gold knows no boarders! That is why its value is not dependent on the dollar, an economic recovery, inflation, deflation, politics, or an...

Re: Reserve Currency

Have you ever seen a million in gold? It would fit in a small shoe box with lots of room to spare and weigh about sixty pounds. Really not much of an issue to hide or move. Silver takes up more room, but a lot goes in a dozen ammo cans. If you have more than that, then you have the resources to affo...

Re: Landline Phones

Am I hearing this right? They are not going to spend any money on the old copper lines and if they upgrade to fiber optic it eliminates the advantage of a landline? I also found this article that might be of interest if you are also fighting this loosing battle. Swamp http://www.consumerreports.org/...

Landline Phones

I have always been told to keep my landline as they still work when other phones don't work! Mine is on an old copper line, but it is getting more and more undependable. After numerous complaints, it boiled down to the phone company ain't putting any money or effort into landlines. The last time it ...

Re: Are we becoming to soft for the outside world?

I have to say yes. I have a garden and am more outdoorsy than most of my friends, but after any outside time, I can relax in my climate controlled home after taking a cool shower. If I need anything, it is either Amazon or a drive into town! Information or research is as close as my phone! Does anyo...

Re: Primary Four Prepper Needs

I think one thing here that is being neglected revolves around the psychological aspect of survival. You have to have the "want" to survive, not just the "means" to survive. How many of us will have that "want" if we are the only ones in our families to survive? Also, ...

Re: BOL vs Camping or Base

Matte: Thank You for pointing out the obvious! My first BOL was a old travel trailer on a small lot in Arkansas that cost me less than ten grand. I have gone upscale from those days, but the concept is the same - have a plan! If you can't get ahead in today's world, your not going to! It has never b...

Re: Primary Four Prepper Needs

I am always amused that people think there are simple answers for complex issues! Glad Permafrost weighed in. Our situations could not be any more different, but neither one of us will last long on the Old Prepper's Myth of a gallon of water a day. We also have very different needs for food, shelter...

Re: Is it time to get rid of cash?

I think the entire western world is dead broke and a credit float is the only thing keeping our illusion of prosperity alive! It literally allows multiple people to claim the same imaginary credit at the same time and every agent to gleam their small cut. Something that is not possible with real mon...

Re: BOL vs Camping or Base

It would take someone from the city to think of a plan that ignorant and out of touch with life outside the city limits. Do you really believe there are millions of abandoned homesteads waiting to be taken and nobody would notice! Here is a clue - there's not! Any land worth having has value and som...
