    Greetings. I intend to build an off-grid home with a greenhouse in the desert southwest. I'll catch rainwater on a huge roof, over 20,000 gallons a year, and grow whatever I can using "ollas" to stretch the water 10x. I'll control summer temperatures by running earthtubes into the greenhouse...

    Something I hadn't thought of was carrying ANY kind of barter items in my edc/bob/inch bags. Was always thinking what I got with me is just the essentials, but these videos got me to thinking other wise. The first deals with having them in your bag, the other is having stuff ready to trade/go...

    Looking at companion planting for a healthier, less pest-prone garden (actually a bunch of Earth Boxes and other containers). However, this means I would grow things I am allergic to and/or detest. Is it worth my energy and time to use this as a strategy for a healthier and less pest-prone...

    So, for a long time I have always considered fiat currency to be no more than paper with some ink on it when it comes to a SHTF situation. During Hitler, the oppressed Germans had to use money to start fires with when they were cold because it was the only thing dry they had on hand. I started...

    Anyone wanna have some imaginary fun and try to come up the "price" of barter items? For example, what would you trade a gallon of milk for? Or 10 rounds of ammo? What would you give me for a fish? I know it's hard to say; but lets just have fun.

    http://www.shtfantibiotics.com Saw them at a Gun show, very good Texans. Above and beyond great conversation and advice, even handed out constitutions to everyone as well. The antibiotics they sell are from an American supplier which is worth the money to know they are legitimately...

    Thought I'd post this here for the new parents out there. We have stocked some baby formula for when we were prepping and he was a newborn baby. The good news is that we are now past the age of using baby formula and can use whole milk (he is old enough). The other news is that we have an excess...

    I was watching High Fidelity last night, and it got me in the mood for thinking about various Top 5 lists of songs that I would want to have in a particular situation. I thought, why not apply this to a survival situation? So, here is how my setup will go. If you had portable music (mp3...

    So as I shop for my own needs I keep trying to think of things I might want to stock up on to barter with. I don't drink caffeine of any type, alcohol, nor do I use any type of tobacco product but I keep thinking I might want to stock up on some of this for those who do. So what are you getting...

    What is your WAMPUM for future barter? When the money system collapses we will need items to barter and trade with. I have been buying extra guns and ammo to use as future wampum. I figure that two items will be of most importance. Food and Firearms. I recently purchased a number of...
