Another 50 lbs of Organic Rolled Oats for the buckets (ordered while still on sale @ .79 lb). That amounts to more than 2.5 mos. of breakfast for the fam.

My dad loved Spam fried with a slice of cheese, some onion, banana pepper rings, and some Miracle Whip and/or Mayonnaise!

All this talk is making me hungry! Think I'll go have a rib eye and salad!

I labeled my intermediate storage buckets better. And I stuck a small hammer on top of the buckets to make resealing them easier.

Different response

Part of preps has to be addressing the unpleasant and not putting it off.

I worked hard on my income tax return today. I also went through accumulated papers from the last year and threw out a number of folders.

There is a website on ebay for a seller named bouldercity nevada. That city does not allow gambling. It has a truck continuously traveling up and down California picking up confiscated knives, leatherman tools, swiss knives. Prices on the used items has been jumping with inflation in the last two months. However, I always have some bids in. Nice to pick up a used (confiscated TSA) leatherman tool for 1/3 to 1/2 the price of a new one!
Because I now have a lifetime supply, I let you guys know. Go check it out. I have a number of bids out there, but people have overbid me this week.

How about a Victornox Swiss Champion plus knife for about $25 delivered?

Tell me about it. I saw the oral surgeon the other day and scheduled an appointment to have my wisdom teeth removed.

I despise the dentist, though.

I have already itemized my 870, 1100, Glock, MAC 10, Remington 700 bdl ,AR15, Garand, HK91 parts for sale. I have listed them before and will relist them in a couple of weeks on upwards of 5 web sites.

I am in the process of cleaning up a large Sears tool chest of wheels for sale (already have another) and a complete I think Mec650 set up for sale.

I had loaned the MEC unit on a semi permanent basis to a disabled USMC vet who would reload shotgun for both of us. He died last year and I will not be reloading in the future.

I photographed a number of die sets and sent them to a dealer client for sale or usage. I have a lot of Dillon 550 press spare parts that I photographed and I haven't figured out how to sell them.

I acquired and cleaned up and got sheaths for a number of Buck 110, Leatherman tool and Victornox Champion knives. They are being spread around to different residences.

Do you have any oriental "food" stores around you.I've found that they have some decent prices on rice and bulk soya.Hispanic stores have good deals on spices.From what I've seen/YMMV,the best way ta turn a "bland" meal inta a winner is a extensive spice cabinet.Also a lot of herbs/spices can be homegrown with a little effort.

As ta the faucets,it's sorta like a mechanic working on his own car.'08.

I don't really consider this much along the lines of preps, but I figured some my be interested in something like this for various uses. I have Fenix flashlights and love them. But I wanted a keychain light that was robust, varying brightness settings, small, and ran off a common battery. Fenix doesn't offer one that fits this description.

I found this one.

I received it & it's perfect for the purpose that I bought it.

Err, what about the LD01? https://www.fenix-store.com/product_...oducts_id=2477

I've had one on my keychain for years now, works great and fits all of your criteria...

Good point...but I wanted the smallest that I could find at a reasonable price (<$35). The LD01 is a little bigger (about 0.3 in longer) and cost almost 3 times as much. However it's certainly an option.

Like most here I am on a 'snug' budget, but every week I pick a few boxes of instant rice, or bags of beans. It adds up and beans, and rice are the basis for most of the worlds meals.

I made space in my pantry, and moved a case of MRE's down to the
basement, along with a box with plastic utensils, and some canned
backfill. SPAM, fruit, soup and stew and the rules are for this batch:

All cans must be self opening.
All things in the box must be edible cold, without cooking.

Some warming can be done with an included can of Sterno. Napkins,
a candle and a mason jar with wooden matches and a couple 2L
bottles of water are in there also.

They are on a shelf at eye level in a closet, in case I have a small
flood or some water issue down there.

The reason for this set-aside in the basement is simple.

Most of my preps are above ground, in daylight. I regularly use what
I have, to keep rotation up. Eat what I store, store what I eat, in
most cases.

It would be a major PITA to have everything in the basement.

Thing is, I live 8 miles from the Prez' nuke bunker at Mt Weather.

While survival that close in the event of a direct hit is very dicey, the
only chance I will have is if I am underground, and at 8 miles the
blast wave either dissipates or is reduced sufficiently.

I do recall reading a table that indicates by 7 miles the 300 mph
blast winds will be down to under 100mph. The most I've ever seen
here is during a hurricane with 70 mph winds gusting to 90. The
house did fine.

Whether that also dissipates lethal air overpressure, or gamma
burst is another story.

I figure total time, max from the flashcube going off is 90 seconds.
If I'm sleeping and don't see the flash, but hear the unmistakeable
boom, or hear the windows shattering, maybe half that if I'm lucky.

There will be no time to grab anything. So, there should be a
minimum of 14 days chow down there, and I think I have that. 40
gallons additional water is in the HW heater.

As long as I'm within reach of the basement door, I should be ok if winds carry the fallout away.

More of the same, mostly financial & business-related 'preps'; getting settled into new building & such. Also finally got my new-to-me taurus 450SS to the range for the first time. Five-shot snubnose revolver, but in .45LC caliber (one of my favorite calibers lately) with a ported barrel; it's both practical and 'a hoot' at the same time.

Also spent more time trying out a new 3-D cell flashlight; the Coast P17. Good light with very-good runtime as far as I can tell so far. (Still on the original batteries.)
