    Busy weekend with the grandsons - they came home with me from the football game on Friday evening, spent all day Saturday and up until early afternoon today here. Lots of fun running around in the yard, more water balloon battles (it was warm yesterday), checking on tadpoles - little grandson was...

    Poll Are you Physically Capable of Bugging Out?

    The average age here at TB, based upon a poll taken here last year, is about 65 to 67 years of age. IF you had to bug out tomorrow, for whatever reason, would you or could you? I tried finding the poll I posted here from last summer asking people what their age group was, but alas it's not...

    Sorry for the late start; been having trouble with my internet most of the week. I can - sort of - read the site on my phone, but typing on that little bitty screen is beyond me! Plus, Hubby managed to go through nearly an entire months data allowance on my phone in three days because he didn't...

    Folks, we are coming into the dark time of year again and I would like to add to my oil lamp collection with a couple of wind-up lanterns. Have you used one that you like and would recommend? I've looked on amazon and am thinking about a couple but would like to know what YOU like, since I...

    Harvey experienes

    Ok, I know I would like to see the experiences and advice of those who endured the effects of Harvey. In my life, I have to ride out a number of hurricanes on the Atlantic coast and was sent to New Orleans to assist in the recovery efforts after Katrina (the worst hurricane I have ever seen). Any...

    Woo-hoo! It's October! Garden is winding down but still plenty of work to do out there, and lots of things to store away for winter - have I mentioned that fall is my favorite time of year? :) Off to work again today; haven't had much chance to peek at the Sunday ads as yet, but do know that...

    13 Review – Goal Zero’s Yeti 400

    I bought a Yeti 400 with a pair of 30 watt solar panels. I have between $500-600 in the set. Since it is so hot and humid, last night I took them solar generator to the range to power a couple of ordinary floor fans, the type you’d buy at Wal-Mart for $20. Guess how much power it took to run the...

    Funny prep item from the thrift store

    I picked up a huge bag of tea light candles at the church thrift store today for $3. When I dumped out the bag there were 2 live .22 bullets. Score! Too funny.

    Water storage and hot temps

    I'm sorry if this has been addressed elsewhere. We have four 55 gallon blue, "officially for water use" water barrels. We have them - currently empty - in an external shed, which gets very cold in the winter (mountains of southern Appalachia), but it also gets hot in the shed in the summer. ...

    How much gasoline should we be storing? --safely--

    Hi all, We have enough water to last 4 months for 4 of us at any given time, so we're good there, but we are woefully low on gas storage. We have 1 35 gallon container, and a couple of 5 and 10 gallon containers. I do have Sta-bil ready. I'm thinking because it gets so hot here in S. Cal.,...
