    Good Morning, All! It's going to be another scorcher outside later today, but I have the kitchen door open to a beautiful 68*F morning - can hear the buzzing of the hummingbirds and our two Mama wrens carrying on out on the porch, phoebes and cardinals calling farther off in the yard... so...

    In 20 ys of watching TB2K, I have seen only one Prepper who understands the chokepoint in prepping.

    Drinkable water. The electric grid goes down and by the end of the week, thirst for a majority of the population. By the end of the month, death. And there is no Plan B. Odd how nobody ever mentions that. Every farm I know has an electric submersible pump. No power, no water. Only...

    Hi. Posting this one a little early because I have to make an unexpected trip out of town tomorrow. Hope nobody minds. Remember, you are trying to build a food supply for 2 people on $20 a week (over the course of a year). Last week I got rice, beans, pasta, tuna, chili, cornbread mix,...

    Well, I was out of town all week for a family emergency and was all ready to look at the sales ad when I got home. Boy, nothing worth going out for in my opinion. Some weeks are like that. Still, I did come up with a list. I don't usually shop at the Super Wal Mart since we don't have one in...

    INTRO: One of my prep hobbies is to evaluate different food storage plans. I try to see how balanced they are, how much they cost, and how much nutrition they offer. I try to relate them to my situation, which is a minimum 1 year plan for two adults. CRITICISM OF PLANS: The two $5/wk plans I...
