    While I have not looked for ammo. I have not been able to buy whole wheat flour, disinfectant body or home wipes and n95 masks for the last 3 weeks in local stores. For certain times during the last 3 weeks there have been no TP and related paper products, eggs, gloves, bread and some meat. But...
  2. Coronavirus
    I've cut back on some nuts, wipes, TP and paper towels. I rinse and dry some paper towels that are not really dirty and cut paper towels in half. Used to pick up 5 or 8 wipes at the stores and put in plastic bags when I entered store. But most stores are out as of last weekend and do not have...
  3. Food and water
    Normally I got 8 to 14 jars on hand. Sometimes it dwindles down to a few jars before I stock up. After the virus scare I bought another dozen jars. Took a count today and have about 22 jars.

    Dear friends, I will be moving this year to Norway(Oslo) because of my job, and I will be staying there for more than a year. Because this is very new to me, can you help me to organize my preps for Norway? I have some questions: - how safe is Norway from Terrorism? - is the crime a major...

    We recently moved and our new areas closest grocery store is an Always-Save. I had never shopped there before. Its my favorite store now. It took me a few trips to get used to the layout and most especially to the store brands. In just a few trips, we found the store brands to be better than...

    Seeing our presIdential candidates (primarily the female Snowden) as well as the "dindu nuffins" attacking law enforcement after a few idiots breaking the law get themselves killed, and don't even get me started on the gun control debates after the most recent shootings. I really think the...

    First off, I do have some preps. But nothing near what a really long term situation would require. So I ask you. If you had advanced knowledge of an economic collapse. Or something similar. And you were to jump into your car to hit the local Walmart or grocery store. Before the hoards of...

    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...

    Has anyone had any experience with heat damaging any preps they have in their vehicles? After all, it gets well over a hundred degrees inside the vehicle in the summer. I have specifically thought about: Pepper spray or bear spray exploding when it gets too hot in the vehicle. Plastic preps...

    Once a month, from Friday supper through Monday breakfast I practice cooking and existing on preps. alone. The basic premise is that the refrigerator and freezer do not exist (except for ice for drinks.) I make a point to not cook just from canned foods but to work a variety of my stored foods...

    Has anyone had any problem with the No-Rad-Zone.com company? I ordered a Big Berkey water filter system, extra filters, two sets of fluoride filters and some potassium iodide. I ordered it back at the end of May and have only gotten the potassium iodide. They sent me a email when I ordered the...

    I am wondering how much money everyone has allotted to the prepping cause. My main preps so far have cost me Guns and ammo - A lot. close to 1,000$ with safes and accessories included. 5000 watt generator off craigslist - 70$ 40 gallons of gas kept in car/truck/gas cans - About 3.59$ a...

    I love Craigslist. I love being prepared. I have NO idea how to use A to get to B. Are there any of you out there that use Craigslist for preps? I'm caught in a rut. All I do is scan the Sporting Goods section and when I try to do a generic search I get tripped up. Anyone out there have a...

    Friends- Not sure if there's a thread out there that's similar, but I wanted to ask you all a question, and foster a discussion. What is, in your opinion, the best granola bar out there that you could reasonably buy at most stores? Bonus points if you can back up your argument with some...

    Hi all! I was just wondering if anyone had ever considered a handheld Microcurrent E-Stim unit in their preps for helping to heal infected wounds. I use it in my practice for healing persistent decubitus ulcers, dehissed wounds and infected wounds, but it has never occurred to me that I can get...
