    I used the search box to see if there might be a thread within the forum that dealt strictly with bartering prior to SHTF.
    I’m sure there are many of us that have hobbies, occupational attributes, perhaps even geographic advantages that may be useful to others.

    Personally, I have an interest in utilizing the services of somebody who has the required time necessary to selectively hit the neighborhood grocery store once a week in my place to stock up on deals too good to ignore?
    I have no problem with the idea of paying a 10% surcharge for the favor of having a dedicated shopping assistant that prides themself on their ability to get a great deal for the money? The more time and money I save this way, the more I can invest elsewhere.

    Maybe we have members who work in metal fabrication shops who can bend some aluminum Faraday box shells and supplement their stockpiles with bartering that service?
    Maybe we have some woodworkers who can fabricate shelving units specially designed at the appropriate dimensions for can storage with nifty hook attachments that slide over the top of a interior standard door?
    Maybe we have members that love canning vegetables? I’m quite sure we have plenty of people around that have nightmares even thinking about it.
    As for me? I believe my occupation has unlimited potential to help many. I drive a specialized truck pretty much non-stop around the eastern half of the country and typically stay south of interstate 80 and north of Interstate 10.
    The opportunity exists for me to transport anything in that area anytime at no cost to you. The only catch is that it may take an extra week before I am near the pickup or delivery area?

    Were you wondering why I can’t always make it to the right store at the right time?

    The options here are limited only by our imaginations.
    Rumor has it, I hear prepper types can conjure up some rather quirky thoughts.. lol!
    What’s your special purpose?
    (Steve Martin reference.. don’t laugh!)
