  1. When the SHTF you buy your food at Amazon!

    Food and water
    Looks like Amazon got a (overpriced) supply of whole wheat flour. I've been to Kroger's and Walmart's in 3 states and can't find any whole wheat flour for 6 weeks now. Before all the CV mess, whole wheat flour was .60 to .80 cents a pound. Now it is going for $2 to $3 a pound on Amazon...
  2. No more LTS of flour for me.

    Food and water
    A person can spend all day in the garage mylar-bagging flour and still not get it right. You start off with these nice stackable 25 lb sacks ($7.98 each)... 1. rip em open, try to dump them into the 6 gallon mylar, spill all over. 2.) try putting the mylar bags into 5 gallon buckets first...

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I couldn't find an all-inclusive discussion on this forum (and I hope this is the correct location for the topic) reguarding wheat berries.

  7. Put up food in mylar zip locks

    Put up a few things in mylar zip bags today. First time I've used the zip locks. Be sure to get the "dust" from things like oatmeal from where you make your seal. Same with standard mylar.

  13. The Overlooked Food Thread

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    So I know we miss alot of foods here especially native foods that have been long overlooked. It would be nice if we could have a thread where all of these foods are discussed in the thread. Please avoid any comments to this thread unless you are adding a different food or giving relevant...

    I pretty much know that as far as rice and beans go I will store them 5 Gal pails and mylar bags. But I am not so sure this will work with wheat flour, salt and sugar. Any advice?
  17. Mesquite Beans - an experiment using grain mill

    Edible & Non-Edible Plants
    I've got a love hate relationship with mesquite. I hate it, because it seems to take over the old fields I keep planning on plowing for deer food plots. But I love it, because it is supposed to be a healthy plant. Based on some back of the envelope calculations, I estimate I could probably pick...
