    I was very happy work and school were canceled yesterday for the kids. I am thankful DH took a vacation day instead of waiting to see if his boss shut down the plant Thursday. As it turns out his office-mate made it in. They dismissed everyone at 1030 am. This is when it was really getting bad...

    I'm sure everyone at this point knows that a huge storm hit part of the United States last week and that it came as a huge surprise to quite a few people, my home state of WV included in the surprise. We were told that thunderstorms were possibly headed our way but in reality what really...
  3. Getting spouse on board
    I have friends that really want to prep and get ready for unknown disasters, EMP's, and possible economic collapse, but their significant others ( mostly the wives ) just wont have anything to do with it, and deep down think they are crazy. I try to give them advise, but I am afraid I am running...

    I've been listening to a lot of predictions for the years ahead and paying attention to my own geographical area and I'm prepping for bad times coming. Maybe I'm wrong, which would be great, but I'm going to work on the "what if" principle. I'm taking care of debt, working on extra streams of...

    Today I stopped at costco, got some meat. I've got supper(meatloaf) ready for the oven tonight, and 3 meatloaves for the freezer. I'm just about to get some mini loaves ready. These are more like oval meatballs, but just the right size for the kids. I cook these in a gravy or a sweet and...
  9. Vacations and Travel
    Okay, there was a request that I tell more about cooking foods ahead for my vacation. There really isn't a whole lot to tell (sorry!) so I am going to share about my whole process for getting ready for vacation. Some of this may be helpful for others, who knows? About 6 weeks before we go to...

    Is prepping the same as stockpiling? Is it done to save money or done for some sort of survivalist reason or disaster plan?
  13. Preparedness and Survival
    For the past year I've begun the "prepping" journey. I've posted a number of websites and stickied them here in the homesteading forum in regards to stock piling. I've had a feeling for quite some time to stockpile, to be ready for an emergency. The feeling has become more urgent in the...

    Pantry - we use it regularly and place most of our loss leaders there. We keep it stocked so that we can purchase most of our grocery items at loss leader prices. Prepping - means an extra stockpile that we keep for emergencies, such as another 9/11, war, etc. Do you have both and if you...
  15. Preparedness and Survival
    I was given permission from the author that posted this on another homesteading board, to do a copy/paste I have not tried this YET. Hello!! These are the things I've dry canned successfully - flour (any type), cornmeal, powdered milk, rice, and oatmeal. I would imagine you can also dry can...
  16. Stockpiling
    I've posted a number of websites for prepping on another thread and no matter where I go to read, people are talking about the need to stockpile. For several months now, I too have felt an urgency to get stocked up. For me, its for many reasons, the main being winter coming on (I don't like...
