NorthernMN77 North Shore too...lots of people like us up here! I'm actually welcoming like minded people to come here (with supplies) when SHTF. I've got a good little set up on 5 acres, needs some more things but it's on it's way. Msg me if interested.

Call ahead because they don't have extra barrels everyday but will reserve one if you call ahead.
Check Graigs List too, found the blue food safe barrels for $15 with free delivery from Speedy. Much more convenient for me. Grew up around N St. Paul and Stillwater, am in SE MN now. Love it!

Yup, lots of sauce this year. Also took a stab at cider this year - holy smokes, best stuff I've ever tasted.

aramchek Yeah, I keep thinking that this will be my last winter here. Been here nearly half a century. The winters and roads seem to be getting worse over time. I remember working with a gal once from British Columbia. Said she was renting an apartment with a view over a light industrial area and paying the same exorbitant rent that she would pay in Vancouver, but have an ocean view there.

The scenery is nice along the North Shore, the southeast bluff country or in the southwest out by Luverne, with a Dakotas feel about it. But if you want to live in the rat race, I don't think this is one's best choice.

Welcome to SB!

My advice for prepping is to pace yourself. Start off with the essentials. It can be very overwhelming at first but just remember if you do a little every couple of weeks for awhile it just grows and grows and grows.

3 Seconds without Hope
3 Minutes without Oxygen
3 Hours without Shelter
3 Days without Water
3 Weeks without Food

1. Water (Bleach, Iodine, Filters, etc.)
2. Shelter (Bug Out Related: Tents, Hammocks, Tarps, Sleeping bags)
3. Fire/Fuel (Lighters, Water/Windproof matches, Ferro-magnesium Rods, Propane, Kerosene, Lamp Oil, Gasoline, Batteries, Solar Panels, etc.)
4. Food (Rice, Grains, Beans, Pasta, Honey, Canning, Freeze Dried Foods, etc.)
5. Medical/Hygiene (First Aid & Trauma Supplies, Medications, Pain Medications, NBC Masks & Suits, etc.)
6. Security (Hardening your Home, Bulletproof Vests, Less than Lethal, Knives, Firearms, Bows, etc.)

Another important part of prepping is getting and staying out of debt as much as possible, saving precious metals, even cash (depends on what type of SHTF event if paper money would be worth anything or not), learning what will become good bartering items, and investing in your health and well being. These are often overlooked by many preppers.

Most of all Knowledge and Practice pay off in the end.

Yeah we have decided to put some high quality all season tires on our 2011 AWD Subaru Legacy after last winter worn them down a bit.

My wife drives the Subaru everyday so I want her to stay safe. It gets through the snow really nice.

FreedomofSpeech Yeah - last Winter was brutal. We've got land South and are making plans of moving there sooner than later.

CraftyPrepper Central Minnesota here, too, all my life. I love all the open country in central and northern Minnesota, but I don't know if I can put up with too many more winters like last year (Farmer's Almanac says this one will be worse). Wouldn't mind being somewhere warmer...

Welcome.

And get the heck out of the cities!!! Ahh!!!


Plenty of land North of you on the very cheap right now. Mille Lacs county has a nice assortment of it but you pay a bit higher taxes. But they have PLENTY of water, good soil and a low population. But you probably know all this.

Stay the hell out of the Princeton area. Whackado's by the 1000's..... Hated that area.
