Paid off another credit card, 3 months earlier than expected...


Debt-free is my goal, to stack everything deeper especially for retirement, and a free-state eventually. Even a gas-station jobs in a free state, debt-free would be better than living in Commiefornia... unless something changes, but it does not appear it can...

If the ammo background check is ruled unlawful, I MIGHT stay, but probably not...

Picked up an extra propane stove today. Big 5 has this one on sale through 5/12 down from $80 to $50. Seems well built enough and it has a broiler in the middle. The burners have igniters but the broiler does not.

My apartment stove/oven is a 220v. I've got a 2-burner electric that I can run off the generator, a Coleman Triton in the RV out front, but this is a nice addition to cook at home with propane in the event of a power outage.

I mapped out all the water locations near my house (Golden Gate park in San Francisco) and gave instructions to my wife and kids to fill up containers and empty fish tanks from them as soon as possible if the city's water system is out after an earthquake. I figure we have enough plastic cans and other containers to store an extra 100 gallons or so on top of the water I already have in water containers. And also to be early about it to beat the crowd

Pond/lake water will certainly be non-potable but I have enough filters, chemicals, and other things on hand to purify thousands of gallons.

Not a bad idea but I'm not sure its wise to send your wife and kids out into the chaos of post major earthquake San Francisco.

Cool

Put the finishing touches on my battle belt & chest rig.



Mmmmm... free state, 30 round GOODNESS...



Yep - 1911 Dinosaur here. That's an EssTac quadrunner pouch.



I'm keeping the setup as light as possible (light's on the rifle, knife's in the pocket, hydration's in a 32oz. Gatorade, etc.), as I'm stuck in the urban cessmaze, and it's designed for close-to-home work. BoB's take care of the big stuff.

And yes, there's 2 CAT's on the rig, because anything necessary and WORTH having, is worth having two of! I'd hate for the necessary CAT to be OUT of reach, because it's opposite the arm that's falling off!!! So there's one on each side.

Yep - the mish-mash of colors is intentional. Read up on J.W. Rawles thoughts on such matters.

Certainly true but they'd only go out alone if I was incapacitated/dead. Also the reason I mentioned getting water sooner than later is that panic will increase the longer people are without necessities. So making a 1 mile run to get extra water within the first couple of days hopefully shouldn't be too bad. We live in a decent area so I give it a few days before people begin to realize that help isn't right around the corner and decide that they need to "share" what others have.

Participated in a sourdough training day.

If you're going to keep your sourdough culture healthy it needs regular exercise and training, so I make a few loaves now and then so the sourdough and I don't forget how.

Yesterday morning I pulled it out of the fridge, warmed it up, fed it, and got it worked up into a frenzy.
Last night before bed I made up a pre-ferment of sourdough starter, water, and about 1/2 the flour called for in my bread recipe and let that ferment overnight.
This morning I mixed up the rest of the bread ingredients and baked 20 nice dinner rolls.
They came out nice and light and taste freakin' awesome.








Rotating my frozen food stock...
I bought a whole chicken last week and tossed it in the freezer, so today I pulled the oldest dated chicken out of the freezer and tossed it in the crockpot.

Fresh rolls + cooked chicken = chicken sammiches in my near future.

Prepping can be delicious.

I finally got around to watching 'Zero Day'....

Basically, it's MAD (Mutual Assured Destruction) implementation without the population realizing the risk as the test case (Stuxnet) was launched and Nitro Zeus was ready to take down all of Iran..

It's also a great tool for asymmetrical warfare.

Motivating to say the least....

Since I last posted a few months ago, I have set up my security cameras and lights around my home. I have also added an Aimpoint and Eotech to my ARs. I have topped off my stores with more batteries, propane tanks, water and other small essentials. I was also gifted some tomato plants, so now I can start my garden or at least practice. Hopefully I don't kill these poor plants.

I think you are optimistic. People will get thirsty fast if they didn't store water or their supplies got ruined by the quake. Unfortunately, I don't have any helpful solution other than to wish you the best of luck.

Speaking of thirst. Today I picked up some water storage drums from a guy in Vista for a very low price. Tomorrow I'll rinse them and fill them.

Interesting thread, I'll add.......

been looking at and thinking about pressure canning. Checking out the food you can process, differences between water bath and pressure canning, pros and cons

Just do it.

Buy a pressure canner (you can do boiling water canning in a pressure canner - just don't seal the lid or put the weight on; but you can't pressure can in a water bath canner), the Ball Canning Book, a starter kit with funnel, lid lifter, jar lifter, buy a case of jelly jars, and then go buy a bunch of strawberries, sugar, and pectin. You can get all of this at Walmart (if your Walmart doesn't have strawberries stop at a farmers market on the way home); if you're going for really easy you can have it delivered from walmart.com. Make a batch of strawberry jam.

Before long you'll be doing vegetables, hamburger, chicken, stew, soup, and more. I can buffalo wings in quart jars, and homemade manwich.

Don't forget about dehydrating also, I dehydrate a ton of stuff and it stores better and longer than canned items.

LOL! I read a bunch of threads on canning in this forum and noticed your enthusiasm in some of those as well. Thanks! I didn't come from a family that canned and almost 100% sure I never ate any home canning. But seeing beef stew canned got me a thinking.

How about a past prep? Bought both of these knowing if the grid goes down, assuming power to the natural gas system depends on electricity goes down to, I could still use both of these with gasoline if needed.

If you have any questions feel free to ask, I'm happy to help. When I started I felt like I had a hard time getting straight information, so I figured it out myself. Turns out it's not hard, but if I can shorten the learning curve for anyone I'm happy to do so.

Wife & I can all kinds of stuff. Fruit, meat, spaghetti sauce, salsa, chili, soup... there's all kinds of good food that can be canned to preserve it.

My grandmother (dad's mom) canned everything that was cannable and always had a huge stock of food on hand. Anything that she couldn't can went into her huge freezer.
I've eaten 1000's of pints of home canned food and was "helping" grandma can stuff when I was just a wee lad. I was lucky to learn from an expert.

Buy a copy of the Ball Blue Book, read through it, and put it on your shelf for reference.
Also bookmark this page and have a look around: National Center for Home Food Preservation

Buy yourself a decent canner. Bigger is better, but make sure it's not too big to wash in your sink.
We got an "All American 921" almost 6 years ago and have canned about 1700 pints in it so far..
The last thing we canned was chili. Looking forward to canning peaches in another month or so. And we're getting kind of low on apple sauce, so that will be on my list of things to do this summer also.


ETA: I think this is good advice from ChuckD:

I had some left over Yukon Gold type and Russett potatoes from Thanksgiving that had started to sprout. So, just for fun and a learning experience, I cut them up, and planted them. Garden plot is not very big(4'x6'), but the soil is decent.
I dug up enough Yukon Golds to can up 7 1/2 qts. of potatoes.
Gave the pint jar to a neighbor. So now I've got 7 qts of ready to eat potatoes.
Russetts didn't do quite as well, but then I didn't have as many of them.
I'm still waiting for the left over St. Patrick's day reds to be ready.
Nice learning experience.

I cut off several herbs and harvested some tomatoes and filled up my 9 Tray Excalibur dehydrator & I made enough buffalo wings to fill 7 quart jars (plus I ate about 20) and they're in the canner now.

Not today, but last month: planted a lemon (grafted with 3 different types of lemons: Improved Meyer, Eureka, & Pink Lemonade) tree and 2 lime trees (Bearss & Key) in my front yard.

When I planted my garden I planted one patch with all the ingredients to make salsa and another patch with all the ingredients to make Nordstrom's Tomato Basil Soup recipe, in addition to my regular garden. I plan to can as much of both the Tomato Basil soup & Salsa as I can, and I'm really looking forward to both of those.

Been a few months since I posted up here so a lot to share as I've picked up quite a few odds and ends over the year plus one big purchase.
  • set of 3g Water Bricks for the vehicles
  • Razor A5 Lux Scooter - adult sized - to keep in the 4Runner in the event I ever had to walk somewhere (yeah they look silly but would be way faster than walking)! Plus it's small and folds up to barely take up any room.
  • Gomboy 240 silkey saw
  • Cheap mosquito head nets - 6 pack for $10 on amazon
  • Bark River Bravo 1.25 camp knife with custom kydex holster
  • 2 pack of Sawyer MINI filters
  • 2017 Rand McNally Large Road Atlas
  • New pack of Datrex 2400 Rations to keep in the vehicles - replacing the old
  • Fenix HL60R 950Lumin headlamp
  • A 'Bug Out Roll' which I'm absolutely in love with.
  • A Keith titanium canteen kit
  • "Mother" Canteen Carrier from Center Line Systems to make a nice small day hike kit. Paired with the Canteen, Sayer MINI, small IFAK and other odds and ends.
  • 2016 4Runner TRD Pro in 'Quicksand' on a 3" lift with nice trail tires!

The 4Runner is by far the biggest purchase besides a house I've ever made. But my 2003 Tahoe was simply starting to go and I needed a replacement way sooner rather than later. Plus I always wanted a trail capable vehicle. It was time to treat myself!

It's hot AF here in central Texas, as soon as the weather subsides a bit, I can't wait to get out camping again!
