Well it’s official…coffeeS and I are best friends now.Apologies for the rant...but here's my 2 cents worth. I learn from you guys for the training, advice and vitamins for workouts and bodybuilding. I don't know shit about that but I am thankful for being part of this group and being taught. Prepping and setting up a home or bug out location for a disaster, I can help with! If you can figure out your cycles, you can do this too.
I have been off grid since 2005. We prep for every winter. My home is 3,200 sq ft and runs like a regular city home. Harbor Freight gen set, 20 solar panels, Magnum inverter, regular household wiring, 2200 gallons of fresh water storage, radiant heat, fridges, freezers, TV's, computers, iPads, phones, I run my business out of my house...In remote areas like ours, weather is a huge hurdle, but you can beat it if you plan accordingly. After being snowed in for 3 weeks one winter, we started going overboard with the preps. With the current economic and political climate, we insured that we are set for a couple of years, maybe longer if we can conserve and ration. Clean out a closet and add shelves. Stock it with food that you actually like and will eat. Add comfort foods like cookies, candy and fruit roll ups. If you have shitty food or your dehydrated food is a turn off, you have to start over and get something edible, which could be too late. We get enough pasta, canned food, rice, flour, sugar and yeast for a year. RDM, this is is a good start for your 50 or 100 a week idea. Rotate your stocks every week or two with your regular meals. Replace as necessary so your stock is always fresh. That's easy in the current state. Water; get backpack filters for emergency drinking water. Stock up on 3 gallon jugs for filtered / reverse osmosis water and keep 10 (or more) on hand, build a rack to stack them for space saving.
There's a lot more to being prepped than food, water and a few bullets; power systems, heating and cooling, cooking, hygiene, wood stoves, firewood, etc. Alternative living area or rally point. Protection is a huge issue, 1.3 million guns were purchased in February. Every month for years, that has been the norm. People are arming themselves for protection from the government and others in the community. Like Halloween, kids go to the rich homes to get good candy. Thugs will do the same after they've worked over the locals and we have seen that it does not take very long for a group of bad people to ransack a business, stores, homes, etc. You not only need enough guns to arm your Team, you need enough ammo for weeks, maybe months. I know - over kill? And you need more ammo to train. Shooting skills are reduced over time. Practice, practice, practice. Knowing exactly what the gun can do in your hand is a huge benefit. Ldog, you know what I am talking about. Midway USA, Natchez Shooters Supply generally have decent pricing on ammo and availability. It doesn't take long to stock up. More ammo is always better. Stick with NATO calibers for weapons; parts and ammo can be found easier. Guns need to be able to be used like a hammer, shoot and beat the fuck out of them. If they continue to work, it's a good tool. Glock, Sig, S&W, POF America as examples. Spending a little more on a quality gun could be the difference between life and death. Just like gear, get the best, it will perform and you will be happy.
I can keep going...
Anyone with questions you can PM me or I can respond here. I am happy to share my experiences. I don't know it all but will share what I do know.
That’s a beautiful mountain location brother. Easier to defend. I know where I’m heading if my location and my back up gets “QZed”.
