After WW2 the US Gov had on hand for every man woman and child approx 600 lbs of food, over the years that number has dropped to less than 10 lbs why?
I know why...
I have been slowly storing long term food for about 2 years, I have on hand enough for my wife my daughter and I to last us for about 3 years
without the need to go to a super market. On top of that I have been taking a queue from the doomsday seed vault, I have on hand sealed and in deep
freeze just about every non hybrid vegetable seed I could get my hands on.
I am in the process of turning 3/4 of our back yard into a garden, making my mistakes now while I can afford to make them. I am not a farmer but I
am searching the internet and archiving everything I can find to disk.
I tried to purchase dehydrated veggies online last year but it took over 4 months to have one 6 gal bucket of sweet peas filled, since then I
purchased an "Excalibur food dehydrator", I have been running the machine pretty much nonstop since I got it, the quality of the dried food is
excellent, and everything I get from my garden is going to go into it for long term storage.
I am in touch with likeminded people in my area, so in a Sit X scenario we can link up our resources for our mutual survival, remember no one can go
it alone find people you can trust your life with because you will need them and they will need you.
Along with researching agriculture I am archiving all information I can download on power generation/fuel production. Right now I am working on
building a Wood gasification device to power a 5 kw generator again I want to work out bugs now not when my family needs power. Ultimately I plan on
having combination solar / wind / biomass setup for electricity with perhaps alcohol distillation and methane production as well, anyone can do these
things on a small scale and be able to meet all their energy needs.
Weapons, you will need them, you probably have that covered but also think of unconventional weapons, a good bow could mean the difference between
life and death. I have a Bushmaster M4A3 with about 2500 rounds
, a 10/22 with about 7000 rounds, a compound bow + 100 arrows, I want to get
more ammo and a crossbow but not sure if I will be able to before everything goes to hell. I am researching basic chemistry so I will be able to
manufacture a number of energetic materials with items I can buy off the shelf, Potassium Nitrate is a handy chemical to have, get it at home depot.
If I can say anything that can help you it is this, use the internet while you can and save as much information as possible, hook up with likeminded
people in your area, maybe even form small survivor groups, because in the end, it seems we will need each other after all.
