As far as the roaches you'd sprinkle it where ever you see the damn things they walk through it (they are very clean insects ) they clean their feet,it kills them dead ,They can live through atomic bombardment and all kinds of man made shit but nature gets 'em every time,LOL bambam55

    Salt and sugar. I am a smoker and have gone for days without a cigarete but I can't eat a steak or an egg without salt.

    also

    Got chickens but no goats and the things I hope will vanish first are my remote un-prepared neighbors down the road a piece. Then we can block the only road in!!!!

    Good check list

    We been at this for years now...got it all but baby stuff, pretzels and cigs. Do have some Cuban Cigars and a still ;-0

    Two portable potties but better than that... two nice ready to use
    outhouses. The noraml heads in both our homes here at the ranch will have 24/7 water to them even if the grid crashes for years. The supplies on those lists range from two years worth to five years worth. Now that took some time to do and good rotation as well.

    Don't give up...keep hoarding!!!!

It's the re-emergence of our gov't from the underground cities that worries me the most, and FEMA's deathcamps. Bartering ammo would only be done with people that might not want to use it against you. But you can't eat and drink bullets, so knives, bows, and all kinds of martial arts weapons that don't need amunition would be my choice. ITEOTWAWKI so even the most overlooked things today, would be very valuable post times. Don't get me wrong, I am still enjoying today to the fullest, but have been feeling something coming over the horizon for some time now, and now know why. Endtimes. End of Days, Armegeddon, The Shift, WWIII, When The Shit Hit's The Fan. There are far too many signs to not admit that something big and bad is going to continue to happen. They keep showing THEY LIVE for some strange reason and then I wonder about Lizards!?

    You might be right. The trouble is, when things really get bad, I don't know how many "friends" I will have.

    Booze and tobacco, despite what some people think, are NOT necessary for life. Other things are. I will gladly barter booze and tobacco for more important things. In fact, I've often thought about laying in a stock of cheap booze and cigarettes just so that I can have them for barter goods.
    Bartering ammo? This has been discussed elsewhere, but I can never see myself giving to someone else something that he can use against me. If I have ammo and the other guy doesn't, I am stronger than he is. Why would I willingly give up that position of strength and make the other guy my equal, especially in a situation where my very survival is at stake?

    If you must barter, then YOU need something. Make sure that for awhile, that you don't for all the obvious reasons. If you must barter, then have plenty of good survival knives, water purifying kits, and two kinds of ammo, shot gun shells and .22's. I would not barter my liquor, smoke(s), or TP. What are you nuts? Or my my food stuffs. Even the extra stuff you don't like could be eaten if need be. Crank light sources with radio in them are great little gadgets. If TSHTF then nothing will be manufactured anymore, think of it that way. Whatever you love and favor, vacuum seal some for the tough times. I am going through everything I own and deciding if its worth something to me, or valuable in an of itself. If not, I am getting rid of things to make room for prepping supplies. I would go green and off the grid anyhow, and my shelter doubles for my soundproof recording studio. My woman already knows I am nuts, but being that we have a 3 year old she doesn't ever question what I am doing as compared to his survival and growing up no matter what the environment. Make sure you have entertainment set aside too. Books, games, musical instruments, toys, tools, or whatever your family is into. Movies, video games, and the like are great if you plan on having electricity of some sort. Cabin fever has killed many prepared people as their was no entertainment other than focusing on another person, or what they have.
