    I have some really nice 55 gallon drums. tight fitting lids with a clamp style ring. Only place I can store them is in my shop. No heat no AC. Temperature gets over 100 degrees (F) and down as low as -18. What foods do you think I can keep in the barrel s? Salt should be ok Rice? I have more...
  2. Food and water
    Early next year I'm going to be placing an order to the LDS online store for some canned goods. I'd like to be able to incorporate some of these purchases into my meals without spoiling a whole can. So, where can I find resealable plastic lids for #10 cans (6 1/4")? The LDS store doesn't seem...

    Until around the 5th year of our prepping, I had never seen a weevil. Then they hit us like a plague. We had to throw away all the pasta stored in that location. All the pasta that is, that was in traditional boxes. The sealed plastic packs were unharmed. Our policy now is to only buy boxed...
  4. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I visited a fellow prepper this week and this issue really hit home for me. After quite a long history of "I'm gonna do it, yea, definitely next year, and when I get time," he finally planted the most half hearted poorly thought out "garden" I've ever seen. Out of the 5 local preppers I know...

    Just a FYI - Lowes carries gamma seal lids for 3-7 gallon buckets for $7.28 each. I needed a couple and was pleasantly surprised to find them at Lowes. I thought I would have to order online and pay shipping. I bought a bunch of July 5th 50% off fireworks and needed some air tight containers...

    I apologize if this has been discussed, but there is a LOT of information on the boards and I haven't seen it here or elsewhere so.... One of the things on my list to stockpile is canning supplies. Whether we are only dealing with a short term economic collapse or personal financial difficulty...

    The importance of long term food storage is increasing as one may run into natural disaster or emergency. If you are preparing for the possibility of a food shortage or disaster, you need to have the necessary materials for long-term food and product storage. Long term food storage requires...

    Is it just me, or is anyone else noticing that the reasonably priced, storable food options are all back ordered or sold out? I was on the LDS store the other day and the only thing they had left were oats and sugar, then on Walmart.com most of the Augusan Farms products were also sold out...

    You know those little paper-like packets that have taco, onion, chili and other seasonings in them? What do you think about storing them long-term? I plan to put 5 packets, each a different seasoning, in Mylar bags with an oxygen absorber. Do you think I should let the packets be or cut...

    Looking for a list of brick and mortar stores, (aka Walmart, Costco, Sams Club, Bjs, Target, Mom and Pop, etc...), who sell Augason Farms products or other brands in store. I am fully aware of ordering them online but I like to handle a product before I buy it online. Stores in eastern Pa, Nj...

    My older brother just bought me a grain bin. Yesterday, we spent about four hours taking it apart, we tossed the sections in the back of a pickup, and drove home. It is an older 14 ft dia, ten ft tall, Butler Brand round bin which originally held around 1,000 bu and featured a steel floor. The...

    I've been a customer of the Ready Store for a few years now. I have nothing bad to say about them. But as I'm always looking for ways to improve the foxhole. I was looking for opinions on other companies. Does anyone have a bad experience with the Ready Store or does anyone think there are...

    So I was wondering if any of you have used the Harvest Right Home Freeze Dryer System? I'm very interested in how it works and if people who own it could start uploading youtube videos and reviews, recipes tested and timing, ect. I really want one and next year is my chance, but I won't be...

    Dear Survivalists, I've had a thought driving home the other day. I enjoy welding stuff for fun so I've got a ready supply of various technical gasses on stock. Primarily Argon and Helium. They're both inert gasses even under adverse conditions, hell that's why their used for shielding. Has...

    I'm having a hard time keeping my supply climate controlled at the moment. I keep thinking about using my deep crawl space. It's dry and cool. I thought about digging a squared out area and lining it air and bug tight. Then keeping my sealed food down there year around. Any thoughts on the matter?

    My first attempt at drying green beans. My wife and I planted 2 rows of beans, 1 row Roma II snap beans and 1 row contender snap beans. On Sunday June 1st I picked exactly 5 pounds of beans. I know it was 5 pounds because I used a scale. My wife has been putting a bunch of the beans in the...
