    I did, and members can't relate. They are only interested in what is the content of current threads.
    One day you eat the chicken.....next day the left-over chicken.....next five days you eat chicken feathers, head and feet.

      When ever I click who's online, there is a lot of guests. Currently, there are 21 guests.
      Perhaps, if you start prepper threads some of those 21 guests just might register and contribute? It is the only possible way this site will grow to what it used to be.
      Some examples would be the never ending what would did you do to prep today? As I believe you've mentioned having caches; a thread about how to protect your caches? Registrar had a thread about digging an underground hide; however, he never mentioned how he disposed of all that dirt. Yeah, I know who and what he is, LOL
      I figure this site is worth an honest try; how about you?

        The "WHOLE" prepping movement is now deeply flawed and corrupted. It is now a "Feel Good" pacifier, masturbation. Internet/social media and Madison Avenue Advertising/Marketing have corrupted Prepping and Prepping for Survival.

        Quality prepping knowledge pretty much ended in the mid 70's when it shifted to a discovered marketing void for retail sales. In the 50's & 60's and some of the 70's prepping was a physical action that you practiced and lived.

          Back then, we canned the summer harvest of vegetables and built cold frames to grow winter vegetables. It wasn't prepping for survival; it was how we lived. We also canned deer meat etc.

          Today in the lower 48, people can buy fresh vegetables in the middle of winter. As a lot of farmers will not plow because of the costs of fuel and fertilizer there will be shortages. Ukraine and Russia are the largest producers of grains and legumes. When food prices go way up or the shelves will be empty; it will be a wakeup call.
          Look at the baby formula shortage, that is fine example of wakeup call.

          I've seen pictures posted online of two smaller bedrooms filled almost floor to ceiling with survival food. I doubt they can take from the back without a lot of work. As you said a "feel good." I also wonder if their floor joists can handle the load. LOL.


          My mother lived during the Great Depression. Once she said I felt sorry for the city people because we had dirt and all they had was concrete. Her family had chickens and they'd barter with their neighbors for what they had. I still have my grandmother's notebook where she kept track of how many chickens or eggs they owed for meat.

            Hi Country Guy.

            I check in here less and less. It's just not the same as before. Where the demarcation is between now and "before" I can't really peg. In some ways, I feel burned out from questions that were covered in-depth years ago.

            On the other hand, I am so busy gardening and getting the aquaponics back up and running that I don't have time to sit on the computer. I just got my fish last Monday after being down for four years. Then I completely rebuilt all of the grow beds. I doubled the capacity and I will be adding new solar PV panels so the system runs off-grid.

            I also doubled the size of the in-ground garden. The new area is not fenced but it is just for pumpkins and potatoes.
            If it was man made it can be man re-made.

I also believe strongly in that Constitution that we swore an oath to, an oath in which we swore to protect and defend it. And brother tell me it's not needing defending right now. I believe in protecting my and my family's freedoms also. Especially the freedom of choice to take or not to take their poison. Hey if you want it more power to you. I find it hilarious that sudden;y the chant of my body, my choice means nothing to the left in this country. And I'll be damned if they'll put it in my kids. My 18yo caved in to get it as otherwise they pressure them with 'well you won't be able to come to class, be on campus, etc..." and then because of the boogie man Delta variant they still mandated the kids must wear them anything inside a building and even in their dorm rooms if with anyone besides their roommate.
                Our educational system is filled with liberals.

                Here's why people resist being vaccinated:



                I'm Agent Orange positive and my civilian doctor wanted me to see a urologist. I decided to go to the VA. Trump really changed the VA. The ony mention of COVID was the VA's security meets people at the door, hands them a mask and that's it. No one asks to see a vaccination card, nor do they even mention it. All they ask is have you been sick recently.
                They don't ask for your insurance card anymore as everything is free.
                When one of my hearing aids died; they sent it to Denver Logistics to be repaired and they reloaded its software. Guess what, it works perfectly, unlike what Denver sent back to me before. They also vacuumed any ear wax out.

                Where I have an advantage is when I first got involved to get hearing aids; I was registered in South Carolina. Now, that I live in Georgia, I'm over 200 miles from William Jennings Bryan-Dorn VA hospital in Columbia, SC. As a result, I qualify for local civilian medical care. In case of an emergency, I have a 1-800 number to call.

                  Popping by again. That's great Mangler. How did the new fish and beds work out? any estimate on the amount of food the system was able to generate for you this summer and fall?
                  I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you!
