Cheese Dingus Yuppie Scum, desperately seeking to retain their fishwife mate, all their shiny and pretty possessions and status symbols and every stinking Greenback they possibly can, because, you know, our great and wonderful government would NEVER devalue our currency, are so worried about not looking like some Redneck sum bitch stocking his hand-dug root cellar with canned opossum meat, is busy as can be following the North Idahoan Worthy And Special Survivalist Plan Of Concrete Bunker Acquisition With ONLY Semi-Auto Weapons Allowed Inside and has just spent $356,347.67 and is now prepared to live in luxurious comfort after all infrastructure failure for the grand sum length of three and a half months. Or until the propane runs out if he is using his liquefied gas adapted generator to run his deep freezer to stockpile frozen lobster bisque. I think we can do a lot better. You know, being trailer trash irregulars and all. A shopping list to get you through the very long Dark Ages following a true collapse ( despite the proffered wishful thinking from Jesus Thumpers insisting God himself will save his privileged country by only seeing us through a teeny tiny tribulation ). As I’ve said before, a one year grain stockpile is old school wishful thinking. A year ain’t rancid Obammy sweat. Start at three years and get a minimum of five and strive for ten as the ultimate goal. The most pathetic minimum wage earner such as myself brings home a grand a month. On your own land, that is a bloody fortune. About $150 bucketed wheat from the feed store, and $200 a year worth of wheat from Wal-Mart.
I wouldn’t be comfortable with less than three grain grinders. Get the Corona from Amazon:
These are a lot more expensive than ever. I would spend double the Chinese made versions myself ( the Corona’s are made in South America ). You do not want a piece of crap grain grinder, and you always want back-ups. Your water filter, again three for back-ups, is both high quality and high quantity:
You are already up to $1400 for a single person with five years of food. You need to add two to three rifles at $1k, and at least $300 in ammo ( if you buy the bolt action in 762x39 or 223 you can buy steel cased ). I would have a minimum of one thousand rounds per rifle. So, three rifles and three thousand rounds are around $1600 to bring you to $3k. Each person in the family just needs wheat only in addition, so a family of three is $5k total. Throw in a lot of junk land, a rudimentary shelter and I can’t believe any family needs more than six months wages at minimum wage to survive longer term after a collapse. If both of you worked, camping on the land as you made land payments and biked into town to work, in four or five months EVERYTHING here is bought cash on the barrelhead.

(I'm the minion who asked for this article).
Btw, you don't store water ?
I have one to two months stored. All in small bottles and stashed in differant places. Two liter bottles are the Oil Ages greatest contribution to the future.Delete
I'm so pleased with this article I'm going to turn it into a book. I love me!ReplyDelete
Another simple and straight forward article. How do you prevent bugs? My dried peas and rice eventually got bugs even though they were stored in a glass container.ReplyDelete
I freeze mine every winter. Try food grade diatamacous earth at the feed store. One cup per five gallon bucket.Delete
