Those don’t work here in Florida. The humidity is usually too high.

I don’t know if you have ever read Little House on the Prairie books, but I remember Ma Ingalls added baking soda to dried beans when cooking which supposedly helps with their digestibility. Also I have read it is helpful to add ginger.
Most recently I read about some Indian spices that are commonly used to de-gas beans, which are a major component of their diet. I bought “Ajwain seeds”. To use, multiply your # cups dry beans by 3 (= X). Add 1/4 tsp. Ajwain seeds per (X). So 2 c. dry x 3 = 6, which calls for 1 1/2 tsp. Ajwain seeds.

Re: Insulin

If you have not already read the post apocalyptic novel “One Second After” by William Forstchen you might find it interesting.

Breifly, it is the story of a modern day small town and its residents in the aftermath of an EMP attack. The protagonist has an insulin dependent daughter and has to cope with the limited supply of insulin as well as the preservation of their small personal supply in a world without electricity and refrigeration.

It is a good read and very thought provoking.

I would include whatever I could think of.

For me the goal is not to run to the store and get some emergency supply.

I have bottles of beano and some other gas buster(can’t remember the name) at my office and in two bathrooms at home.

Look at this change of post look at the anger of and you can see that it's not just the Libs that are shocked and angered by preppers, there are any number of people who consider themselves to be conservatives right here on FR who are just as angry at preppers.

Making a decision to prep or not is a judgement call. People choose to take different paths in llife. This is just one of many life decisions we all face.

IMHO anyone who would take the time to belittle and harange preppers has a serious character flaw.

Conservatives generally accept the fact that different people may have different beliefs and choose to live in different ways. We belive the world is large enough for that kind of diversity as long as it is not destructive to others.

But rabid Islamists, socialists, leftists, racists and many others cannot stand the thought of living in a world where everyone does not agree with their views and does not live according to their rules. Even though many of these people preach diversity the truth is they cannot abide true diversity of thought any more than do militant Islamists. These kind of people cannot just pass by someone engaged in an activity they do not agree with. Just knowing it exists gives them furor and rage.

It looks like we have some people like that on FR - people who cannot just let us have a constructive exchange of ideas and information related to prepping, but instictively become combative when they are exposed to ideas and choices they do not agree with.

Every prepper should own a good 12 gauge shotgun. The Maverick 88 (from Mossberg) can be bought at Wal Mart for $200, and an 18 inch barrel for it can be bought for under $80. The lowly 12 gauge has a wide variety of rounds which can be fired through it, making it a multi-purpose tool. There are several alterations to the ammo which an individual can make to improve the ‘impact’ of the cheapest rounds (cut shells, wax slugs, bird shot melted and molded to make slugs to put back in the primed and powdered shells).

“I only buy during the glut during harvest.November/December”

Excellent advice. I hadn’t thought of that. Perhaps that’s why I thought I got such a smokin’ good deal this last purchase ‘cause it was right around that timeframe.

I use the popcorn popper with an 18” screen “chimney” stuck in it to keep the hyper-energetic beans from escaping. I stopped by the local thrift store the other day looking for Coleman stuff, and happened to notice they had two of them sitting on the shelf. One was marked $1 and the other $1.25.

It’s interesting to me that more people don’t consume their coffee this way. The benefits are without question. It’s much cheaper, stores for a hell of a long time, the process of roasting is simple and enjoyable, you roast it to your desired finish (dark, medium, lighter, blended, etc) and the final product can’t be matched by commercially roasted bean. Freshness goes without sayin’.

I lived for quite a while on my prep supplies after the market crash in 2008. Disasters can be very local and very personal. It just makes sense to prepare.

No it doesn't. You simply can't prepare enough to escape the roving bands of unemployees!

In a true SHTF situation, what are you going to do when confronted by desperate parents who have to listen to the heart rending cries of their children going to bed without any Xbox or SpongeBob?

How are you going to hold off the entire state of Rhode Island when they show up at your door ready to kill for a canapé?

Sure, you talk big now, but when all the non-preppers become bullet-proof, special forces, terminators, I'm just going to sit back and laugh, because you were foolish enough to prepare for an inescapable conclusion!

True about the Water Discipline, but after years of camping where I have to haul the water back the camp and now living in the Desert southwest, you learn.

Now my water storage is not my only water plan, I have filters and such so I can go out and retrieve water and clean it, but living somewhere with a serious lack of easily access able water does cause a serious concern and problems in a prepper’s plans.

As we’ve discussed, water is my main concern as well. I have been looking into the solar pumping systems. Low flow compared to AC, but sufficient for drinking and cooking needs. Also, some claim to be able to work down to 500’.

In a long term SHTF scenario the river banks here will be gang turf and a hunting zone for predators.

That’s the problem here all this beach surrounding so little water.

I built a little 8' x 12' shack out of locally available scrap materials. It was quite cozy and met all my needs. I had plenty of game and forage during most of the year, and traded out specialty work for occasional trips into town for flour, salt, tobacco, etc...

I had a little garden spot for things I needed to grow myself. And I took full advantage of local stuff. When native plums came in season, I took all I could get and made wine and preserves out of them. Same with cactus pears. Only problem with that is the guy that owned the land stopped by for a pint of wine every night after he found out about it. ;)

I've been thinking of using canna leaves for tp in an emergency.

As a guy who makes toilet paper for a living, I can tell you that's a terrible idea. You need to stock up on several years supply.

It has been scientifically prove using toilet paper substitutes causes cellulite, irreversable brain damage, hair cancer, blindness, and hardening of the boogers.

Don't do it!

What's mind boggling is you'd think third world people would already know how to clean water, farm and preserve foods. That's basic survival skills known by mankind for eons. They should be the ones teaching those of us who have forgotten these skills. Never could understand why we've been teaching all this to them for generation after generation and they still don't get it.

See what happens when you run out of toilet paper!

"Anyone else feeling the same? "

I've been buying hundreds of used bath/beach/dish towels at garage sales...for practically nothing. When the ladies ask what I'll do with them, I say, I use them in the shop to wipe oil etc. (and, I do that too, they're much cheaper that the 'rags' at Sam's).

Then I recommend K-var who imports Saiga rifles that have barrel lengths of 21 inches and chamber .308 (or NATO 7.62). I think there is after market 20 rd mags for it. Russian system based on the rugged AK rifle with the trigger group moved back several inches to accommodate a sport stock so it could be imported as a sporting rifle. Uses AK style side scope mount brackets that can use Weaver interface. Check it out. One of the lowest cost .308 out there. They also import bolt action rifles that use military and sporting calibers. These are copies of Mauser bolt action system and made from solid machine block in Serbia. Also very competitive price for a .308 bolt action. Check them out.

Very interesting. You really did “live off the land,” as the phrase goes.

I cannot think of many people who could have done what you did. I don’t believe I could done it. The extent of my “woods experience” is that I once built a 12x12’ log cabin, using pines on my property (it wasn’t easy lugging those trees around but I did it). But I lack the other skills you demonstrated.

I have to assume that you had a small wood stove in your dwelling. Is that right?

How did you handle the watering of your garden? We cannot depend on Mother Nature to be consistent with rain, you know. I am thinking that you had earlier referenced a creek nearby, but man, that must have been what we call “work” to lug water to the garden.

I just remain fascinated by someone who could renounce the comforts of modern civilization and live on his own, especially for two years.

Not grounds. Just the last few ounces out of every pot, the stuff you normally just dump down the drain. I only brew drip or expresso. There are no grounds in the dregs. I store the remainders in the fridge or freezer until needed.

Actually, if I have coffee that we didn’t really care for, I will make a strong pot of it and use that to boil the beans. Cheap supermarket canned ground coffee is also a great deodorizer. I have used it to get rid of skunk odor drifting in through the windows. You just put out open containers of the dry grounds and change them often.

I located the cabin near an old, abandoned well and re-opened it. First time it had been used in over 60 years, according to the locals.

And I didn't do without all creature comforts. I had some electricty from the solar panels/batteries for things like lights at night, and to run the laptop and high-speed wireless link down to the big house in the valley a half mile away. I can do without indoor plumbing, but I'm not going without my internet. ;)

On the subject of popcorn poppers and roasting coffee... there are 2 types of popcorn popper. One with a screen on the bottom that air blows through, and one with louvres in the side that swirl the beans as they cook.

I can say with some authority that the screen type, after long use, with oils from the coffee seeping down can burst into flame and make life very exciting.

I never use the screen type now.

I just did some research on the plastic water storage tanks from 1500 gal to 2500 gal.

I have a friend in NM that collects rain water in two 1500 gallon tanks and uses that in her greenhouse.

Those, suprisingly, are fairly inexpensive for the amount of water they store and their projected lifetime. And they protect the water from contaminiation.

I am a professional felter. That has been one of my businesses for 27 years.

Most dryer lint is cotton/poly and assorted hair. To properly wet felt it, you need to add wool and if the wool is not carded into the other fibers, it will not adhere. It _can_ be needle felted, which requires the barbed felting needles (available anywhere, just do a search), but the fibers are so small, it needs to be needle felted onto some substrate.

Wool felts because it has little barbs running lengthwise along the fiber strand. Those barbs interlock w/pressure and heat. The wool fiber itself shrinks into a ball, one end curling around to the other. Time increases this shrinkage and it is one of the controlling elements for ultimate density. If the original wool mass is not somehow contained, ideally with some compression, the result is a tangled mess of hardened wool, with no shape. The necessary conditions for wet felt are compression, heat, agitation or pressure and time.

I would be interested to have your observations of how the dryer lint was felted. I have even had problems with card fly, which is the lint that accumulates under a wool carder. I originally tried to manufacture my main product with waste wool from commercial carders, but finally, about 25 years ago, I switched, first to mill ends and then to carded batts. The mill ends were of varying quality, not all of which, even when 100% wool, would felt reliably enough for production. Today, I only use carded batts.

Anyway, could you describe the process you witnessed?

She fluffed it, shaped it, wet it, and rolled it up tight in a bamboo mat and tied that off.

I don't recall her adding wool, but she could have, since she has angora rabbits and alpaca and llama.

I have wondered if you can put those double clay pot coolers into a hole in the ground? I have also read that they only cool to about 45 degrees. They will delay fresh produce deterioration, but are not cold enough for meat or dairy.

I have thought that they could be useful for cool cloths in case of injury, burns or illness.

I have also wondered if they could be combined with a 12v fan to increase evaporation and cooling.

Cooling would be a problem in FL or other hot, humid areas w/o electricity. I know when we lived there for 6 months, I noticed there were no basements. Up here, the cellar stays at about 57 degrees in the heat of summer and is still too warm for preservation.

Ok, thanx!

Angora matts, technically not real felting, but good enough. Alpaca and llama felt. You described small scale hand wet felting. I can see how it worked.

OTOH, it is curious anyone would put alpaca, llama or angora in the dryer, unless it was done at low—>heat.

Cats adore felt. Mine will get into my scraps and literally roll around in them like it was catnip. This is a beast that doesn’t even like catnip!

Wait, you mean like this guy?

"I thought about this and the frustration that other preppers have with this laid back idiotic attitude that there is no need for preparation." [Be Informed's Inferno, sentence 4]

Why can't he just leave the NPs to their non-prepping? Why must he annoy them with a 30 point list of the torments they'll suffer for ignoring his prepper advice?

"* The (NP) will feel the worst guilt imaginable as they hear their family moaning in anguish from lack of anything to eat, knowing they could have done something to prepare. * The (NP) will most likely not see the rebuilding and recovery after A SHTF event. They will, like almost all NP’s, be statistics. Some will die hours or a day before help arrives. * The (NP) from lack of food, drinking bad water, no light at night, the horrid smells, no good self defense, the overall horror, will often be paralyzed with fear and despair, blank stare. * The (NP) is totally helpless after SHTF, will have to rely totally on charity of those prepared to live. They will take all sorts of desperate measures likely to get them shot. They’ll attempt to eat hazardous foods like an animal trapped in a house will do, and get sick and suffer much before dying. The (NP) will likely die (ugly and hard) as they lived, unprepared for anything." [Ibid., torments 27 - 30]

Yeah, that'll teach those NPs!

I'm going to buy a very small generator just to run a fan for sleeping at night.

If you've already got a generator, you might be better-off getting a deep-cycle lead-acid battery and an inverter.

Run the generator for a while at its max-efficiency power to charge the battery, then use the battery to power the fan via the inverter.

Did that in the winter at the shack in the mountain when we were snowed in and didn't get sunlight. 1 hour of genset a day would charge the battery bank enough to last about a day and a half.

That takes a good charge controller in the inverter. I was using an old 2.4kva Trace unit.

You swine. You vulgar little maggot. You worthless bag of filth. As we
say in Texas, you couldn’t pour water out of a boot with instructions
printed on the heel. You are a canker, an open wound. I would rather
kiss a lawyer than be seen with you. You took your last vacation in
the Isles of Langerhan.

You’re a putrescent mass, a walking vomit. You are a spineless little
worm deserving nothing but the profoundest contempt. You are a jerk,
a cad, a weasel. Your life is a monument to stupidity. You are a
stench, a revulsion, a big suck on a sour lemon.

You are a bleating foal, a curdled staggering mutant dwarf smeared
richly with the effluvia and offal accompanying your alleged birth
into a hostile world. You are an insensate, blinking calf,
meaningful to nobody, abandoned by the puke-drooling, giggling
beasts who sired you and then died of shame in recognition of what
they had done. They were a bit late.

I will never get over the embarrassment of belonging to the same
species as you. You are a monster, an ogre, a malformity. I barf
at the very thought of you. You have all the appeal of a paper cut.
Lepers avoid you. You are vile, worthless, less than nothing. You
are a weed, a fungus, the dregs of this earth. And did I mention
that you smell?

Try to edit your responses of unnecessary material before attempting
to impress us with your insight. The evidence that you are a
nincompoop will still be available to readers, but they will be
able to access it ever so much more rapidly.

You snail-skulled little rabbit. Would that a hawk pick you up,
drive its beak into your brain, and upon finding it rancid set
you loose to fly briefly before spattering the ocean rocks with the
frothy pink shame of your ignoble blood. May you choke on the
queasy, convulsing nausea of your own trite, foolish beliefs.

You are weary, stale, flat and unprofitable. You are grimy, squalid,
nasty and profane. You are foul and disgusting. You’re a fool, an
ignoramus. Monkeys look down on you. Even sheep won’t have sex with
you. You are unreservedly pathetic, starved for attention, and lost
in a land that reality forgot. You are not ANSI compliant. You
have a couple of address lines shorted together. You should be
promoted to Engineering Manager.

And what meaning do you expect your delusionally self-important
statements of unknowing, inexperienced opinion to have with us?
What fantasy do you hold that you would believe that your
tiny-fisted tantrums would have more weight than that of a leprous
desert rat, spinning rabidly in a circle, waiting for the bite of
the snake?

You are a waste of flesh. You have no rhythm. You are ridiculous and
obnoxious. You are the moral equivalent of a leech. You are a living
emptiness, a meaningless void. You are sour and senile. You are a
loathsome disease, a puerile slack-jawed drooling meatslapper. You
make Quakers shout and strike Pentecostals silent. You are the kind
of person who would remove this reference to Version 5.32 and to
http://www.guymacon.com/insult.txt so people will think that
you wrote this. Your mother had to tie a pork chop around your neck
just to get your dog to play with you. You think P.D.Q. Bach is
the greatest composer who ever lived. You prefer L. Ron Hubbard to
Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle. Hee-Haw is too deep for you. You
would watch test patterns all day if the other inmates would let you.

On a good day you’re a half-wit. You remind me of drool. You are
deficient in all that lends character. You have the personality
of wallpaper. You are dank and filthy. You are asinine and benighted.
You are the source of all unpleasantness. You spread misery and
sorrow wherever you go.

You smarmy lagerlout git. You bloody woofter sod. Bugger off,
pillock. You grotty wanking oik artless base-court apple-john.
You clouted boggish foot-licking half-twit. You dankish clack-dish
plonker. You gormless crook-pated tosser. You bloody churlish
boil-brained clotpole ponce. You craven dewberry pisshead cockup
pratting naff. You cockered bum-bailey poofter. You gob-kissing
gleeking flap-mouthed coxcomb. You dread-bolted fobbing beef-witted
clapper-clawed flirt-gill.

You are so clueless that if we stripped you naked, soaked you in
clue musk, and dropped you into a field full of horny clues, You
still would not have a clue.

You are a fiend and a coward, and you have bad breath. You are
degenerate, noxious and depraved. I feel debased just for knowing
you exist. I despise everything about you, and I wish you would go
away.

I cannot believe how incredibly stupid you are. I mean rock-hard
stupid. Dehydrated-rock-hard stupid. Stupid so stupid that it
goes way beyond the stupid we know into a whole different dimension
of stupid. You are trans-stupid stupid. Meta-stupid. Stupid
collapsed on itself so far that even the neutrons have collapsed.
Stupid gotten so dense that no intellect can escape. Singularity
stupid. Blazing hot mid-day sun on Mercury stupid. You emit more
stupid in one second than our entire galaxy emits in a year.
Quasar stupid. Your writing has to be a troll. Nothing in our
universe can really be this stupid. Perhaps this is some primordial
fragment from the original big bang of stupid. Some pure essence
of a stupid so uncontaminated by anything else as to be beyond the
laws of physics that we know. I’m sorry. I can’t go on. This is an
epiphany of stupid for me. After this, you may not hear from me
again for a while. I don’t have enough strength left to deride
your ignorant questions and half baked comments about unimportant
trivia, or any of the rest of this drivel. Duh.

The only thing worse than your logic is your manners. I have
snipped away most of your of what you wrote, because, well...
it didn’t really say anything. Your attempt at constructing a
creative flame was pitiful. I mean, really, stringing together
a bunch of insults among a load of babbling was hardly effective...
Maybe later in life, after you have learned to read, write, spell,
and count, you will have more success. True, these are rudimentary
skills that many of us “normal” people take for granted that
everyone has an easy time of mastering. But we sometimes forget
that there are “challenged” persons in this world who find these
things more difficult. If I had known, that this was your case then
I would have never read your post. It just wouldn’t have been
“right”. Sort of like parking in a handicap space. I wish you the
best of luck in the emotional, and social struggles that seem to be
placing such a demand on you.
