    Cowboyup65,

    I almost totally forgot: There is a store in Charlotte called--of all things, for us Survivalists and Preppers--The Nut House. :D

    In addition to mass-quantities of nuts, candies, dry fruits, and other specialty foods, The Nut House also sells mass quantities of barley, oats, rice, specialty rices, rye, wheat, and granolas.

    Here is the Web Site of The Nut House's corporate owners and the address and phone numbers in Charlotte, NC:

    Tropical Foods
    http://www.tropicalfoods.com

    The Nut House
    Charlotte
    Sales Manager: David Hicks
    1100 Continental Blvd.
    PO Box 7507
    Charlotte NC 28241
    704.588-0400
    800.438-4470
    704.588-3092 (fax)

    They also have The Nut House in Atlanta, Columbus, and Memphis.

    I hope all of this information is helpful and gives a new rise to your sourdough.

    :)

    it seems to be a Co-Op type of deal where it is brought to NC and picked up by those that order it, it showed a price of $17.00 for a 50# bag of wheat

    I found this Montana grain link last night up in my last post. and see they have drop off points around R/D in NC, and greensboro, which is you go get alot at one time for me the trip would be worth it for a 50# bag at around 17$, wife figures you get 3 loaves of bread out of 5 pds of store flour, plus if your like me and love sourdough, you don't need yeast (do I EVER love sourdough), and I bet this world be easy to make sourdough from as the wheat is more intact.

    I do appreciate the links and info TheUnboundOne, I am Really appreciating this web forum with so many members close to home.
    What is the link to the Montana Gain?

    I love the idea of stockpiling for sure. My issue is I'd hate to start doing that now since I live in Central Illinois and not that far from Chicago or Peoria. If I start stockpiling I'll be far from any big cities. OR..........go ahead and start and just buy a trailer or box truck and then move. What a novel idea. Hmmmm.......

    Cowboyup65,

    Howdy, Cowboyup65!

    Speaking for myself and my own logistical solutions, when I get up enough money, I plan to make auctions one of my routes of first resort for both everyday and Survivalist/Prepper items. (By 'auctions,' I mean auctions in the physical world, not eBay, which I am boycotting, but that is another thread entirely.)

    Estate auctions are probably your best bet for things like woodstoves, tractors, farm implements, firearms, and ammo. Wholesale auctions could be a possible good source for mass quantity preparedness items like first-aid kits, rope, tarp, tools, and sometimes even food.

    (For example, I saw in the IWANNA paper a month or so back an auction at a food distributor which included lots of frozen items. Although most frozen items wouldn't be a first choice for a Survivalist/Prepper, if you could smoke, jerk, or can frozen beef, pork, mutton, poultry, or fish, you might just have a deal with something like that.)

    If you'd like to find out more about auctions, here are two links you might like:

    IWANNA-Online Classified Newspaper--The home of fully free personal classified advertising.
    http://www.iwanna.com/

    (This weekly paper has many auctions and auctioneers listed, along with free classifieds, and serves big areas of NC, SC, and East Tennessee. A Friend of mine affectionately calls IWANNA "The Redneck's Wall Street Journal." :D )

    Auction Zip--Live Auction Locator--Find Auctions Anywhere
    http://www.auctionzip.com

    (This free Web Site will help you find auctions nearest to you with the search engine at the top of the page. The results will be displayed on a calendar page, with the number of auctions and their locations linked within the day blocks of the calendar page. And you can go back or forward for many months to see what auctions have already taken place and what auctions are to come. An excellent tool for both auctioneers and auction customers alike!)

    Quick thought. I was up at my dads vineyard this weekend. 7 wood flour barrels, with lids of course, just to keep field rats out. Now I get these heavy ply trash bags. (like at your office with the big, big cans) We read of Shrink wrap and velum', kylar, kivlar.. shoot! The bag is the protector, Containe, containe and support. I can place alot of sugar in these barrels. Even in the packages as I purchased. And most of the bad things and purity can be addressed. Some products do not to be sealed for the '100 year' thingy. 4 or 10 will do just fine. (keep in a cool dry place) Wheat.. Da, you are correct. It was once grown here in "preserverance gardens" and farms.. It can grow here again, there is just no money in it. All of the the old "flour mills" became grit mills of corn. We will just have to trade with other links in the chain. On a colony level 50 to a 100. 7 to 10 acres will serve. Close?.. but in a good year more than enough.

    well you can take a 55 gal drum and put a job site trash bag in it and fill it with wheat I would think.
    Now if you did that with a pickup full of drums and went to a drying mill to get the wheat....................
    Buddy did that in Mich for dear corn...going to the mill I mean, I remember it was stupid cheap for a trailer load.

    Wheat is something that I have a hard time finding here in NC. The wheat itself is not to much, but shipping is killer.

    I'll be glad to help work that up. I was just thinking about it yesterday, funny you should mention it. I'm trying to get a quantity of 55 gallon barrels, and got a list of names from this group who are interested in them. I told the contact at the distributor I'd call back end of Feb to see if he had any (they sent all he could get, to the inaugauration for recycle bins).

    What is everyone intersested in? Bulk items?

    Woodstove
    canned goods?
    wheat?
    rice
    flour
