Thank you for the effort.
My only complaint on the book was the hatred of religion. He’s allowed his opinion, but that added to my general opinion that this guy doesn’t like anybody except his wife and kids.
Would Mexico be a good source for these? Or Amish / Mennonites?
I’d call Singer up directly and ask. I found a stock of such being sold at Walmart in Aberdeen Md. once for $70 brand new as if just manufactured in 1870 and what had happened was that a bunch of them had missed the boat they were supposed to be on at Baltimore harbor and one of Wallies buyers spotted them and made somebody an offer on the spot. Ask yourself how many countries might there be without reliable electricity, and then the guys out there living in yurts on the steppes still need clothing sewn too. The things are tougher than nails and could easily sew through leather, and heavy.
For instance 1 Timothy 5 is actually pretty clear about how charity should be given out to widows and orphans. But the early Church comes along and sets up rules that interpret scripture to enforce what are essentially shake-downs to transfer wealth. I think that's more what he's complaining about.
You mean First Wife :-)
Ah yes! The FoxFire books. They’re good! We’ve got them all. :-)
Salt is very inexpensive (currently) and easy to store! Too many people have the romanticized idea that they’re going to live off the land with their “hunting skills”. But they often fail to look past the butchering and ask WHAT they’re going to do with 100 lbs of meat? I don’t WANT to have to shoot something every day just to eat! That’s going to get old pretty fast. :-)
Ammo cans work well... but you have to remove the rubber seal “usually” and replace it with mesh... although I read an article about electrically connecting the top of the can to the bottom without sacrificing the seal. I haven’t tried it though. I’ve also heard of “stuff” that can replace the gasket AND provide an electrically conductive path as well...but so far have not seen it.
Please add me.
Thanks to everyone who added stuff to this thread. It's nice to share ideas with like minded people.
I had NO idea you were survival mom! My daughters LOVE your site. I do too!
Search around on-line. There are all kinds, prices start around $600 - $700 or so and up.
Red Devil Lye.
You can buy it in almost any supermarket. It should be near the liquid plumber type stuff.
Lye is something NOT TO BE MESSED WITH UNLESS YOU ABSOLUTELY KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING!
It is TOXIC and EXTREMELY CORROSIVE!
ALWAYS have a gallon of vinegar nearby.
Let me re-iterate that!
One SMALL MISTAKE and it will BLIND YOU IN A HEARTBEAT!
If you want/need soap, just go buy it now and put it into storage.
You can buy like a cubic foot of soap for 5 bucks or so!
