Yep, brewing beer was also on my mind when we bought it.

I 'accidentally discovered' two gallons of gas 'doing nothing ' in the garage. Just in case they're going out of date, I let Child One put them in his car, ready for a trip to a friend's tomorrow. I'll fill them up with fresh in the morning.

Gave away a bunch of baby stuff to a neighbor who is going through a rough patch. She's due in a few weeks and needed some help due to her situation. Maybe not a prep, but whatever.

Got the bow ready for season. May get the rifle ready for shoulder season, but I'm always wary of hunting when it's still so hot out.

Had to make the 90+ mile (one way) to the city today to see the orthopedic Dr. about my shoulder (thinks it's rotator cuff tendonitis, so 6 weeks of physical therapy 2x/week, then a follow up appt. to see if it's any better. If not, then MRI, and we go from there...) so since I was up there, also hit Sam's (TP, and the 3 cases of the flavored water husband likes, as well as his salmon burgers, chips, and hearing aid batteries); Trader Joe's (Gluten-free spaghetti, ramen, fusilli, and penne pastas, and some gluten-free snacks); REI (bison jerky, chewable salt/electrolyte tablets, and fruit "Jerky" that has NO sugar/sweeteners--all at NO COST to me, by using my dividend ); and Costco (3 different types of chicken sausages and chicken meatballs with NO soy, sweeteners, etc, a 6-pack of raw chicken tenders, more bread and microwave bacon for husband, batteries--AA and AAA, and a FREE box of the new anti-viral Kleenex--they were giving them as "samples".) Also made an appointment to take the car back up there to get a recall item addressed. Have to go up there, as there is NO dealership for my car locally. Since I have to go back up there, maybe I'll hit Barnes & Noble (since we have NO bookstore here) and the Kitchen Store while I'm in the area.

Also got our SHTF "goody box" today. The goodies included an "ultralight" camping cot, a "back seat gun rack", one of those "fold down" camping "sinks", and several other items.

Found the root cause of my security gate not working. Ants got into the actuator and their corrosive little bodies destroyed the limit switch. Amazing how a $1.49 part can stop a $200.00 gate actuator.

Sounds like you need to get several of those $1.49 parts to have on hand for the NEXT time ants get in there...

Practiced fire making. First time with the candle teepee method. Was next to the river after rain so the dead fall was wet. Awesome trick, for the sticks going faster than I expected.

Found some raspberries on sale for 99 cents a carton, so bought a bunch and spent some time today making 4 jars of mixed berry syrup and 12 jars of mixed berry jam, using frozen blueberries and strawberries that I picked earlier in the year. Helped to clear some space out of the freezer. Also bought another dozen Chef-boyardee pastas and some more flour and sugar. The other day I picked up two cases of veggies at Save-A-Lot.

After the announcement today by the Queen to allow Prorogation of Parliament, I'm stepping up my preps.

I had already started to replace the tin fruit, and making sure I had extra TP, kitchen towels, a full freezer etc. I've got another shop coming today, so hopefully that will fill up shelves a bit more.

I've also decided to clear more of the clutter, so if I need to move quickly I can - somewhere out of England (moving to Wales, Scotland, or Ireland, one with a Parliament of their own). The English Parliament is pretty powerless now.

I've already been brainstorming the BOB kit, now I know it will be a quick and lengthy move I will have to adapt it more.

I just wish we'd had more time, as the beginning of the year was financially taxing and my savings aren't as good as I would wish.

Upsettingly I think this just the beginning of civil unrest in the UK. We are heading for a dictatorship.

Got back from my Boston interviews, they went well so hopefully a job offer is in the works (I will work remote with some travel) got home to the part I need to fix the access gate actuator so will be doing that repair this weekend.

The mower at my daughters ate the fuse (there was some battery spillage on the fuse holder, thought I got it cleaned off) anyway, ordered a replacement fuse carrier that is sealed and replaced it, now it runs like new.

Been gone a few weeks, got home Sunday. Back to work Monday so Tuesday evening was the first chance I had to walk around the house. Wife said there was a bad hail storm the week before I came home.
Yup.
North and west side of the house took a beating. I curse whoever invented vinyl siding. Even the portion I laced in for the sliding glass door has holes. I donít know what to do at this point. I can NOT justify buying more vinyl but canít afford materials to side it in something else. Worst part is I leave again in a week for Army school. Wife is having a break down.
