meadmkr The last few weeks have been a flurry of activity as I am busy most weekends in Dec (think jolly guy in a red suit) so won't likely get back over there until January.

This past weekend I winterized the cabin, checked the batteries for the solar panels and added a few more bags of mulch to the fruit trees we planted last spring. Set aside another metal trashcan filled with mylar bagged foodstores to keep the mice at bay.
Set out a few more traps for any that might get into the cabin. Our BOL is a relatively short drive and is primarily a "weekend get away" but it with the orchard/garden it is staged to help us should we have the last resort of bugging out.

Swapped out the batteries & memory cards in the various trail cams around the property and told the neighbor (one of 2 that has my permission to hunt on our land) where I saw a good # of does and one decent buck. They have our contact info in the event they see anything suspicious going on

bunkerbuster Made a huge batch of medium spicy Spanish rice, including black beans & fine diced BBQ'ed pulled pork to dehydrate (rock hard).

Then pack individual 2 & 4 person portions in Mylar bags, with 02A & heat seal.

Hydrates & reheats quickly.

Compact easy nutritious meal for the pantry, backpacking, camping & road trip or bug-out meals

Just Jeff There's an idea that "being poor is expensive." The logic is that people who live paycheck-to-paycheck have to spend all their money when they get it, just to pay the bills, which prevents them from saving enough money to buy in bulk (at lower prices) or taking advantage of fleeting opportunities like big sales. Wealthier people tend to have enough cash in reserve that they can load up when big discounts on quality items appear. This means wealthy people often spend LESS money on the essentials than people with lower incomes, or buy nicer things at the same prices. But it's not easy for everyone to position themselves this way...so this wealth-building strategy takes discipline, and I consider it a prep.

Simple things: right now, GovX has Darn Tough socks discounted over 40%...so I just spent quite a bit of money on socks. Probably the same price per pair as I'd spend on comparable Walmart ones, but these aren't likely to wear out and are "unconditionally guaranteed for life." So they'll work better and last longer, saving just a little money in the long run, and they'll be replaced for free if they wear out. Little savings add up...that's a prep.

Just Jeff Went to COSTCO for new tires ("Winter is coming") and some odds and ends, and decided to pick up 10lbs of sugar and put it in mylar. Nothing big...just one more tiny step. Was going to get salt but for some reason they didn't have big bags of it today.

Tires are not cheap, and we didn't even get high performance ones!

IceFire Made another 3 batches of mozzarella and used the leftover whey plus 2 quarts of milk to make another batch of ricotta. The ricotta batch turned out to fill a 32 oz container. Now I'm down to just the milk from this evening's milking (until the next days' milkings, that is.)

In the bigger rigs I carry a D handled shovel & hand ripping saw/
(plus a small chain saw, sometimes)



In the small rigs an Ames folder.

tedlovesjeeps71 Got another trailer load of stuff home from the shipping container storage. Funny how it takes hours to get it loaded but I clear the trailer in less than one.
I realized while I was out there that most of what remains are lots (and LOTs!) of smaller, odd shaped things. Iím going to have to build some sideboards for the trailer if I want to make this work better.
Iím also feeling bad for the Jeep. It struggles mightily but just isnít really cut out for this. And it isnít a spring chicken either. Hopefully I can shake loose something resembling a pickup to take over the ďfarmĒ chores....

bunkerbuster Near stupefied that our great Dane watches over the rescued kittens, like they were her puppies.



DIY built a scratching post / perch for the kittens.

Have you taken a look at any of the lightweight mountaineering shovels? Here is a start about them for you: https://www.outdoors.org/articles/am...-shovels-top-3 They work pretty good, take up little room and are light weight. I've had one for many years and it's always worked great.

Just Jeff Hrm...good thinking. I got a 20% off coupon for REI yesterday. Maybe I'll use it for a collapsible snow shovel to keep in the Jeep for this purpose. I can just throw a full-sized one in the truck but the Jeep doesn't have enough room.

Winter is here and its snowing like crazy, if it keeps up like this I will get a chance to use it sooner rather than later.
