    This is my plan I thought I would share with anyone who can use it.. Background: I'm in my mid 20s and have 12 acres of potentially farm-able land, a truck and live in a rural/suburban area of mixed demographics.... Used to do the scrap metal game back when gas was high and metals were high...
  2. Food and water
    Salutations. I would like to know where I can find cheap MREs online. Where could I find them in bulk and cheap, what SHOULD the price be for them, and when should they expire?

    If you could make this, imagine how extremely useful it could be. Do you think it can be done? If so, how? Any thoughts on this are mightily appreciated
  4. Food and water
    Hello, I figured I would write an article on what I know as to add to this amazing community. NOTE: (Sorry if I wrote this in the wrong section, if it needs to be moved let me know) I'm going to outline how to make homemade wine, with and without yeast on hand and without using up your food...
  5. Site Information & Suggestion Box
    Would anyone be interested if survivalist boards had a new fourm about scores (pawn shops, thrift stores, etc.) Talking/showing scores from places? I've seen many interesting threads on this, have a few stories of my own. This would also promote easy ways to cheaply prep.

    So... I think I'm going to skip the long intro this time about me being 13 and get right to the point, because i'm extremely angry:mad:. Not at any specific person, at everything. Last saturday, I went to a local gun shop for gun appreciation day. "I" sold my Mosin Nagant 91/30 for 90 bucks. Saw...

    Just wondering if any of you came across this Black Friday deal at Home Depot and if you had, what your thoughts were on this flashlight. Possible disaster kit potential? I personally am going to use it for EDC at work and maybe put in my disaster kit after I use it for a while and find its...

    As of right now, my MBR for when the SHTF is my SKS. Im pretty comfortable with it, but most people have suggested that I get a mag fed semi auto and use the SKS for backup. Now I see that would be a wise choice. If I get one ive decided to go with the AK platform in 7.62x39 for...
