The weirding is accelerating. Prices are going up. Fuel. Fertilizer. That means EVERYTHING is going up.
Everyone I know that grows the stuff you eat says it’s going to get bad. Very bad.
I reckon there will be price fixing. That won’t work. Then there’ll be food rationing. That’ll kinda work.
It’s going to get weird. And dangerous.
In 2017 the average Venezuelan lost 24.25 pounds, and they weren’t fat bastards to start.
Your dumb ass didn’t move out of town. It’s probably too late to look for a place now.
You need to get some stuff tomorrow.
- 100# Flour
- 40# Oats
- 40# Corn meal
- 5# baking soda
- 3#baking powder
- 2# pounds yeast
- 3 gallons vegetable oil (I KNOW THIS STUFF IS POISON, WE ARE TRYING TO NOT STARVE.)
- 50# salt
- 100# sugar
- As much REAL lard as you can buy. Not the stuff with BHA in it.
- Protein powder.
- Powdered milk
- Coffee, maybe instant coffee.
- Baccy if you smoke.
- 20 gallons of vinegar
- canning jars and lids
Go to the asian market. Buy 100# of Jasmine rice, maybe more.
Go to Sams Club. Buy all the pinto beans in the 50# bag that you can haul. I mean it. Buy 300, 400 pounds. Maybe more.
Your family can live on beans. Most of Oklahoma did from 1832 until 1959.
I know this sounds like a lot of stuff. It’s not. It won’t feed a family of four for six months. It also won’t cost you but about $500.
Do not fuxx around with this. Do it now. Don’t worry about what you’re going to do with it before you “need” it. You are going to start eating it day after tomorrow, not because the shortages will have already started, but because you need to learn how to deal with the stuff.
This is just a frugal way to feed your family. If I’m wrong about shortages or soaring prices at least you will have learned to get back to basics.
You’ll be in the bonus round if you lay in canned ‘maters, garlic powder, bouillon cubes, okra, BUTTER, jams and jellies and the like, onions and taters (they keep well in the crawl space), canned meat, etc.
From my friend Todd:
Include vitamins/supplements/prescription medicine if you take any.
Sanitizing/hygiene- bleach, hydrogen peroxide (35% food grade would be ideal), betadine, isopropyl alcohol.
Basic first aid- banddages, band aids, polysporin, aspirin, etc. Don’t think combat, think everyday needs.
How to books- Country Living, Survival Medicine Handbook, Gardening When It Counts, Ball Big Book of Canning, When Technology Fails. You can read about living through the apocalypse in real time!
Train your mind, body, and soul now as it will only get harder with time.
