You are all doing the right thing and should be hoarding food and water. 

Also, another major part of our life, children, grandchildren, etc. is AGENDA 21.  Check it our on your

computer.  It all starts at the local level of politics. It is frightening and we must all work on this with other

conservative groups to get it out of your city and state.  Also, check out ICLEI.

Sorry for changing the subject Twana but this is critical to our every day living that is creeping up faster

than we think.

Lyn, what is TVP?

Textured Vegetable Protein

To prep I bought hard red wheat , about 900 pounds , bought over 500 pounds of oats  condensed milk , powdered milk and so far about 40 pounds of coffee and trading for canned fruits and veggies that I don't have . Have bought 300 pounds of rock salt to preserve meat , now have a dozen chickens , a few head of beef and twenty head of horses . If I had to , the latter , ugh . I planted 500 blueberries three years ago with a bunch of free raspberries and free gooseberries . I have an orchard , 28  different varieties . Saved seeds and belong to a seed bank . Deer , turkeys and grouse are plentiful and I have a stream going through the property . Don't have enough fuel , both diesel and gas . My gardens total about an acre and have one stick built greenhouse 12x18 and just was given a 28x48 hooped greenhouse minus the covering . The gardens will be given to my neighbors except for my own use . Learn to smoke fish and meats , very easy and stores well especially if a vacuum packer is used . Most of what I have is good trading material and bartering will be mandatory . I'm very fortunate in that I have several acres as most do around me and we look out for each other . What I don't have my neighbors have as we've gotten together and made a list . There are many that have amassed huge amounts of stores . I've been at it for a while now and most of it was free or nearly so . Traded labor for much of it . Medical supplies a must and I have quite a bit tending to horses that are always looking for an excuse to hurt themselves . Even pain meds for them that can be used . Needles for stitching and needles for intravenous . Sanitary pads for wound dressings . You needn't spend a fortune . Just let your imagination go .

Physically most of the above has kept me in pretty fair condition . Bucking 6 ton of hay a month helps (or hurts)  , except for my bank account . The trick has been in starting and doing it in little bites . I've not had the financial means to just go buy everything I need . I drive a 94 Dodge and a 86 Ford and have a 52 International 2 1/2 ton farm truck and the latter paid with my labors . If an EMP is set off my Ford and flatbed will run . I like reliable but not keeping up with the Jones has saved a bunch for me .

Keep an eye out for fruit trees , many never even used or garden plots that are not being used . Run an ad trading labor for part of their garden or ?  Start storing water and the basics . The list is long so make a list .

The problem with our current leadership is best seen in this short commentary, if you have a sense of humor.

The Marines I have seen around the world have the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen. Thank God for the United States Marine Corps!
