Re: What did you do to prepare today?

Quite excited, received my Dehydrator today, simple pleasures.
We have way too many Potatoes so I am mashing the smaller ones and drying out the mash to place in jars.
Organic Smash!
Its actually tedious work but feels really productive : )

Re: Soliciting Contributions

I have an Aquaponics system that is up and running using Mirror Carp. The problem will be getting through the UK winter (first winter) The setup is in a huge Poly Tunnel but the fish are outside in a separate shed because the Poly was way too hot this summer. Will insulate the shed soon and see how ...

Re: it has begun in uk

Yes AV1 got 5 sacks of 20kg rice. I went for the top quality Thai Hom Mali Fragrant Rice and Paid £29 each. This is expensive rice but I'm half Chinese and like good rice. I figured the good quality rice would be the first to stop being exported. I noticed you can get cheaper long grain rice for £14...

Re: it has begun in uk

Yep, we are going to have a challenging time in the UK.
GSM + Global Financial Crisis + Brexit
and we are an Island that imports most of what we eat.
Next weeks food is always on a boat somewhere.
Thank God we don't all have guns

Going to Wing Yip tomorrow to stock up on sacks of rice

Re: Bitcoin to fund GSM prepping

This is just a heads up to any REDDCOIN holders. I was about to start staking RDD and so took a better look at them. Reddcoin is in partnership with a company called Invetaco or INVESTA. They are just finishing an ICO. They say they are launching a Mastercard and world wide ATM machines. https://inv...

Re: Mushrooms

Dirtmurphy, If one gets a mushroom harvest is it easy to collect the spores to start another log culture?

Re: Portable Ham like I have.

Nice, we should put together short term and long term prepping lists to include tested items like this.
I know nothing about HAM radios, I guess this will work anywhere in the world with a limited range?

Re: Soliciting Contributions

I believe it would be a good idea if members of this forum wrote up 'manuals' on how to build/make some of the things in the above lists and also add to the above list. We can go online and find this information but some designs out now are not specific for GSM conditions. Also if we do get a grid d...

Re: Bitcoin to fund GSM prepping

Totally Elew, and I'm sure we don't know the half of it. Lynette is smart and I like listening to her. A crypto economy will probably seem really good in the beginning but later I think we will find out that we loose freedom, especially if we talk like this. One thing I can't work out is the grid do...

Re: Bitcoin to fund GSM prepping

This will be long but it is the only way to explain something huge I use to flip houses and was using self certified mortgages in the 90s-2000s. It was so easy, I just went to a broker and told them how much I needed to borrow and we invented my salary to fit the loan requirements. I was relying on ...
