What are you doing to prepare?

Posted on 10/07/2012 2:50:25 AM PDT by djf

We often have threads that quote recommendations of others about things you should do to prepare. Those threads usually focus on food, water, medicinal items, bug out preparations, etc.

So I think it would be interesting to find out what FReepers themselves are doing. Combined, we are probably one of the most intelligent, experienced, honest, and practical group on the planet.

Without further adieu! In the last two days I:

Bought 3 food grade 5 gallon buckets Bought enough oatmeal to fill one, which amounted to 18 lbs. Bought a 5 lb bag of tobacco (I'm a smoker, I admit it, but if SHTF, tobacco will be priceless) In my garden, I had a number of radish plants that went to seed, so I spent about an hour collecting radish seed pods.

So post away on what preps you are making. Hopefully, we can give ideas and help out people who are curious about what to do!

So you will be sitting around smoking a cigarette and eating oatmeal and radishes. Sounds like a plan...

Indeed, we've seen list after list of things to do to prepare.

But ...no man or family is an island either. I think it is time, way past time, if you haven't already started to think about people around you. If you plan to bug out or hold fort you can't defend all by yourself.

Identify folks in the neighborhood you'd want to be sure to ‘be on our side.’ If you have not done so already, introduce yourself and cautiously befriend them. Host a potluck dinner for your immediate neighbors etc. Don't talk about all the ‘prepper’ things you are doing, but strategically build alliances. Who will be able to help? Who will need help?

Example: Neighbor two doors down maybe hunts, owns a few rifles or power-bows. Somebody else is a good fisherman. Another hikes(GPS & map reading skills).

Example #2: Elderly lady next door. What are you going to do? Leave her to die? Or does grandma have a place with you? Nothing like grandma's meal, wisdom, and inner strength.

Even if you decide to bug out, you may need to leave as a group to safely travel outside the danger zone. You may not be headed to the same destination, but leaving as a group that can strategically defend itself could save more lives.

Do you have a route planned with two alternatives in different directions? And most importantly do you have copies of your Bible and the Constitution.

Actually, I am also preparing. The first thing I have done was stock up on ammunition before it becomes illegal to buy any. We have also been buying and storing canned goods a little at a time before prices soar out of sight. Keep as much silver coins on hand as you can. Good luck and be careful out there...

I bought some knee pads so that my knees don’t become too sore from all the praying that I will be doing.

I bought some good gloves for all the hard work I will be doing.

Stashed a little food, a little seed, keep the tank on my car full and have a good bit of water.

My mother always told me—root, hog or die.

The rest is in God’s hands.

Good for you!
I can’t emphasize enough the importance of canned goods.

Canning preserves food for a very long time. My recommendation would be people have at least 100 pounds of canned goods per person stored away.

Many people emphasize rotation, and expiration dates, etc. While it is always nice to have fresh items to eat, I think that might end up being a luxury.

I have probably 300 lbs or more of canned goods. This year I ended up tossing 4 cans because of suspected contamination. I’ve been storing food since before 9/11, but that’s another story...

Here it goes:

Canned 14 chickens (were on sale)

Shot deer, canned half, jerked other half in dehydrator

Cured bacon sides, smoking now

Dehydrator going full out- 20 lbs frozen sweet corn, 20 lbs sweet peas pre cooked, and assortment of fruit this week

Monthly run to Sams for canned fruit and beans, rice, flour, salt and dried beans.

Re-sighted in all scoped rifles (not an easy chore).

Order monthly lantern oil, wicks and parts.

Reload, reload, reload.

My stash has Spam and canned stew among other things. I have no intention of eating it unless I have to.

IIRC the only canned product I've had a problem with is pineapple. Have had a few cans go bad and leak.

Years ago, someone I used to hike with had these (kinda) granola bars.
I tried one, they were horrible.
But they would keep you alive.

If all we had in our stash was filet mignon, we’d probably eat it before we need it.

Stash some food that would be the last thing you would eat, because IT MIGHT BE!!

For me, that would probably be calamari, someone put that once in a salad I was eating, I luv seafood, but that stuff was downright foul...

;-)

Smart move with tobacco. Author Pat Frank (”Alas, Babylon”) wrote in 1962 that “the day may come when a pound of tobacco is worth more than a pound of gold.”

BTW, what’s the best form of bulk tobacco? Bugler tins, say some. Just curious.

But, I have a store of oil lamps of all kinds. Really nice ones to ones that just screw onto Mason jars.

Bartering with people means you have a conversation with them, a sort of respectful distance.

How do you barter with someone who just smashed your bedroom window in the middle of the night? Or tossed a firebomb at your house?

Whiskey will be valuable. But the most valuable things will be common sense, reason, planning and hope.

Shredded pipe tobacco.

I bought abt 5 lbs of cigarette tobacco before the tobacco tax increase went into effect, can’t remember what it cost.

Now, 6 ozs of Drum Halfzware Shag (a premium smoke!) costs me 27 bux.
But I can buy 12 ozs of American Beauty pipe tobacco for 15 bux.

They will SOON up the tax on pipe tobacco, so get it while you can.

For those of you who don’t speak tabak, a pound of tobacco is about 3 cartons worth.

First and foremost the question is are you prepared for eternity and what about family and friends. All the food storage, etc in the world is for naught if everyone is not ready to stand before God. The plan of salvation is the ultimate preparation. I download http://patburt.com/ and share with others. It has the ‘prepare” theme.

Besides food, water, generator (solar), and of course toilet paper, plastic bags, etc., I would have a supply of silver biotics (non-collodial silver - American Labs) that comes in gel and tube. You can’t go wrong in putting that in your emergency kit. It is not only like an antibiotic but also is used for prevention.

Thanks for the post!

Good luck!

If you are going to shop, how many places do you think you can hit before your currency doesn’t have enough denominations?

My bet is the average thief/looter might be able to hit 3 places before he takes a dirt nap.

Time-wise, that’s what? Two weeks, maybe?

Thank you, Maudeen. I am with you on that. Others might flame you but you are correct that being prepared by salvation is number one#
I have been trying the “Hormel Compleats” meals recently (Mostly out of aversion to cook just for one) and they are not too bad. Stocking up on them is easy too.
I will see you, Maudeen, just inside the Eastern Gate. Praise the Lord!

I have been looking for a new vehicle but the new SUVs look so gaudy. Might as well enjoy myself while I can.

It would be good to have a camp stove for use in the kitchen when the power goes out. They can run on gasoline. I got a propane adapter for my Coleman stove. Got to have something to boil those Y2K beans for days. Got an antique 4 foot saw for firewood.

I have been doing some preparing, I suggest all check out honeyville grains products, reasonable prices and shipping is 4.99 for whatever you get, most of the items have a shelf life of between 5 and 20 years, plus we have been trying the different items and they are good, esp. the TVP products, tried the Taco TVP(textured vegetable product, soy)and it was great. I also have a fair amount of food in mylar bags, either in 5 gal pails or in boxes, some bulk, and some in smaller amounts, like oatmeal 2 lb 10oz, in one bag so I don't have to open up 20lb tub, but something that is missing is water, I don't think many folks consider how much water we need. Drinking, cooking, cleaning, and hygiene. If there ends up being a SHTF event, then staying healthy is going to be paramount. I have developed a system that uses 4 5 gal buckets one with a 100-50 micron filter, next 50-20, next 20-5, and last 2 ceramic filters. My proceedure is first filter water with cheesecloth, let water settle to remove heavy stuff, then pour into 5 gal bucket, I have a fixture at the bottom made out of a PVC cap with holes drilled in it, I put more gauze and filter water one more time, then it gets poured into each bucket with filter progressively getting cleaner. For basic hygine the 5 micron water is fine, for drinking use ceramics which get down to 99.5(but take longer to filter). If you have buckets set up for all containers this is a continuous process, final water still should be treated with clorine of some type household bleach, calciun hypoclorite, or UV(found a 12 volt unit). Last point you will need something larger than 5 gal buckets to store water, you can use bathtub in short term, but 55 gal food grade barrels probably best, my 2 cents

Prepare for what, exactly? No sarcasm intended. And whatever the intelligensia says about it, who or what represents the intellegensia?

Is it preparation for four more years of Obama? Is it the December, 21, 2012 Mayan calendar thing? Biblical prophecy or some other catastrophic geological or astronomical event?

When something like that does not come to pass as expected, how many will be disappointed in the outcome? How many will be disappointed that they will not be able to say “we told you so”?

Well, I anticipated your question.

And if you can’t decide what you are preparing for, then that means you are not preparing for anything.

Besides, you know damn well what I mean. No food at the store. No gas. Even worse, no electricity or running water.

Note bien:
I am asking what people specifically did to prepare. Not whether they should or shouldn;t or even wait for the gummint to give them free cell phones or food stamps...

food stamps with wasabi.... yummmm....

I prepare for the after effects of tornadoes and straight line winds, that being the major natural disaster where I live. Others might prepare for earthquakes, hurricanes, forest fires, etc...

Disasters can be more personal, a lost job, financial situation, whatever. After the market tanked in 2008, I wound up living for over a year on stored food and local forage.

Up until about 60 years ago, almost everyone went into fall with a room full of stored food. It's just conservative prudence to prepare to take care of yourself and your family, regardless of the circumstances.

Yeah; and some have over-complicated what they actually have to have to survive. - I grew up eating dried beans, potatoes, and cornbread every day, heating with a coal stove, going potty in an outhouse and toilet paper was a page torn out of the Sears and Roebuck catalog, tea cakes Momma made once in a while, water drawn by the bucket from a well, communal dipper in the bucket was our shared water glass, an 8 oz. soda and a small candy bar from the store was a treat. Our paper towel was a rag, our paper napkins were our shirt sleeves or the back of our hands, our Kleenex was a cloth handkerchief or a bit of toilet paper from school; I could go on, but it would gross you out.

Societal meltdowns happen. Really. Natural, social, political, personal, whatever the cause. Some are partial, a few are total. Prepping isn’t so much concerned with the cause, more with the odds that disasters happen and regardless the cause you may need to operate independently for a year.

The main worry now is economic collapse. Think Great Depression times ten. At least in the GD people were still close enough to the earth to manage gardens and chickens; nowadays the stores empty in 3 days in an emergency and nobody knows how to feed themselves thereafter.

Even if nothing happens, knowing how to care for ones self and family 100% is good for the soul.

(I'm a smoker, I admit it, but if SHTF, tobacco will be priceless)

Bill Mauldin grew up in the mountains of NM, near Cloudcroft/Ruidoso.

He wrote a book about it, titled "A Sort of a Saga".

In it, he relates a time when a flood isolated his family and several others from town for a few days.

Tobacco was widely used, and ran out.

I don't recall the details, but it didn't go well.

Yes, yes, yes, yes and yes. Prepping is insurance against whatever might come our way be it any of the above, a job loss or other income sapping event, war, a tornado, illness or transportation problem preventing you from making it to the store, etc. It doesn't have to be a national emergency but a personal one that could cause you to break into your storage. In a drought situation, your water might go dry or if your electric pump broke, you'd have water stored so you'd be able to drink, bathe and use the toilet.

Do you carry a spare in case you have a flat? What if you never had a flat? Would someone laugh and say they told you so?

Seems like a conservative and prudent thing to do.

Besides, prepping for any event tends to be helpful for any other event.

My extreme weather preps also work pretty good for an extended urban zombie situation. ;)
