  2. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    So I felt compelled to share this -- twice we almost bought this home, but both times decided against it. But we're very familiar with it.

    This might be of interest to the younger survivalists out there. I'd be somewhat interested, but I have one thing in common with the owner of this property -- I'm getting too damned old. https://www.facebook.com/YukonJake/videos/10212799151403664/

    Last summer my wife and I purchased some day-old Welsummer chicks that were mailed to us. About 6 months after they hatched the hens started laying and boy did they produce a lot of eggs! Each hen produced 5-6 eggs a week and soon we were swimming in them! (One of the chicks ended up being a...
