I've been playing Dead Island for practice. It has taught me that I need to train in jumping onto the roof of cars...so that has taken up the rest of my free time.

Well if it doesnt include a rolling transition to a crouch with at least two reload cycles and a grenade toss, you ain't s#$%.

As we add 500lbs of rice and beans and a 4th 250ga. fuel tank.The funniest thing I read is folk that say "prepping" is a waste of resources ect.The stuff most of us buy won't go bad and years down the road It'll still be viable for use.

I'll give an example,we just opened a bottle of Ragu that the exp date was 2008.Tasted great and with a home made french loaf/kid made from scratch.We added a garlic/olive oil plate drizzle.

Preps are simple,the motivation is hard.An extra $20 a week and in 6mths your pantry will be full.It's simple people,do the work-make a plan and follow it.'08.

I'm kind of disappointed and bored when I come into S&P anymore.

Maybe everyone is busy putting preps away. I know the prep lifestyle keeps me pretty busy.

Apologies for not being more entertaining for you...

Well, if you want to get people talking here, the solution is obvious:

(1) More discussion of TV shows with survival themes and hot babes;
(2) More discussion of how much ammo to store;
(3) Argument over whether gun X or gun Y is more likely to save your bacon.

I think some are still filming for the National Geographic Channel's second season, and NDA keeps them from posting.

lively topic

Hows about this question to spice things up. I hear many people talk about "escaping" to Montana or the like when TSHTF.

Really now? Don't you think there are some nice folk already dug in here in Montana that won't look too kindly on you and your bugout vehicle parking on their land, cutting their trees, drinking their water? We've got property in one of the best locations in the lower 48 to avoid the masses. But lately it's popped up as a great place to mark on your every day carry map.

Sure there's loads of federal and state property as well, but I'm not sure the exodus from the city will pay much attention to the distinctions we fought dearly for.

So the question. Have you thought about what will happen when you look for a parking spot for your survival suburban under the big sky? Do you think you will be welcomed with open arms by the locals who just might blame the city folk for creating the mess?

Just some nonrandom thoughts I had as I was noticing what interstate bridges might patrolling to keep things around here orderly.

Those people will freeze to death in no time.

Think about it this way - if you live anywhere in the north west you know the weather. You would more likely go west and/or south west to avoid the cold. If you live south or east of Montana why would you go there?

You might get the Canadians coming to visit but they are such nice people you should let them go on their way.

Best solution: BE the 'locals' in that equation.

Gotta love rural arkansas. Armed, clannish, hillbilly kinfolk...

Compared to all the other gun sites I frequent, this place is hotter than a Costco before a hurricane...

5. A chart of what you can barter x rounds of .22 ammo for when it becomes currency. Preferably excel format.

I'm curious - is it easier to preserve larger quantities of fuel? I have been tempted to buy one or more storage tanks that appear regularly on craig's list. Being retired I don't use 25 gallons of gas a month, and I use maybe 8 gallons of diesel a month during the grass cutting season. I store 40 gallons of gasoline in the shed along with 30-40 gallons of diesel and some kerosene.

It all depends on ones overall plans,we have a diesel vehicle and store a lot of fuel for it.We also store kerosene as it's a 3rd layer b/up for heating the house.We use wood 1st gas 2nd and kero if the others fail.

We have a diesel genny that we store for and we keep 2 1000gal gas tanks,we cook with gas.

Buying used tanks can be a crap shoot,you gotta really inspect them both inside/out.The next thing is ta be able ta secure your fuel.We learned that lesson the hard way,we came home one day and found a 250gal tank drained. ,so all tanks are below ground in block casings.


I don't know your A/O ect and we have spent a lot of $ ta make sure no one steals our fuel.

Stabilizers,remember the more refined the fuel the lower the "shelf" life,gas is fairly short term 2+/- yrs as ta diesel/kero store much better long term.We use Sta-bil products for the most part.This is just a general overview if you have anymore ?s feel free ta PM or just reply here.'08.
