Thanks for posting that.
When Trump was talking about closing off NY, NJ and CT, you knew it was FUBAR there. That and with what JeffSags posted not long ago.
I feel for those folks and my prayers go out for them.
As usual the truth eekks out a little at a time- “oh yeah BTW we forgot to mention it can stay in the air for almost an hour”,…[Read more]
Very timely thread!
Even some of the small towns around here where it seems like no one is taking this seriously- are putting on 10pm to 6am curfews in the towns.
Small towns, not a lot of cops. But a lot of folks like 1stSargent described.
You guys that are doing a lot of public last minute prep shopping runs need to be careful as well.…[Read more]
Great job Max, and not trying to kiss ass with that.
They closed schools down here a few weeks back. I haven’t left the bunker here much. Had to go to Walmart for office supplies critical to business. Saw NO ONE taking this shit seriously anywhere on the drive or around the store. Shelves empty of various stuff but other than that, it…[Read more]
Granted I’ve only been out of the bunker a time or two in the last couple weeks- been tethered to the phone.
I’ve made it into a small S GA town one time to a Walmart. For freaking office supplies…. Yep, seems like you can be able to wall up and hunker down for years but if you have a business that’s going gangbusters you’ll run out…[Read more]
I am sooo glad we picked up a new treadmill a few weeks ago. When your tethered to a phone taking orders, you can get short runs in sometimes between calls.
Kettlebells- nice to carry around the house a couple times a day (Farmer’s carry I believe they are called). Shoulder shrugs, curls, overhead twirls. Go to kneeling keep back straight hold…[Read more]
Brother Diz covered things very well. Just a reminder to tether tether tether!!!
I’ve bought multicam covers for our personal ones off Ebay.
This is why many of us have stressed the importance of REAL preparedness.
It is likely there will be opportunities to confirm with verification of such action shortly before it happens.
Obviously there will not be time to prepare at that point, at most you will have an opportunity to move to an alternate location if not too far from your…
Wife begged me for a new treadmill after trying to fix ours for a week. I picked up it last Saturday. Glad I did.
Been doing a lot of short runs between phone calls, kettle bell work, etc.
I think a lot of folks will be wishing they bought an airsim rifle from Max- you can be working manipulations and shooting in the back yard if you can’t get…[Read more]
It is my contention that shipping services and phone communications will be the last services to shutter. Neither rain nor sleet, nor gloom of night. Hopefully Post office will be last to shutter.
Amazon evidently said no more non essential orders- TP, food, etc. o.k. New couch no.
Mt. House showed two items available on their dealer…[Read more]
Gradually getting us ready… Incrementalism in a slightly compressed form.

Veritas- come on down here brother, I need help on the phones. I was able to get off the phones earlier for about five minutes, that was my rest period for most of the day.
People are freaking, no doubt there. One guy today said “I didn’t know this (the rush) was happening with night vision also.” Yes, I think it’s happening with just about…[Read more]

Reason 483 why we prepare ahead of time.
Stab you for TP, or follow you home. Or just get the damn virus running out in large crowds now to do last minute preps you should have been doing all along….
This may not be TEOTWAWKI, but the S is definitely HTF.
Next shoe to drop?
Bank runs? Might not be the big deal they were in the 90’s…[Read more]
Oil prices still dropping. If I had a guess I would say we could see $20. a barrel??
Thank you for visiting Mountain House! We are currently not accepting orders online or over the phone while we check our inventory levels. Please do not call. We are working very hard to resolve the issue and hope to have the site up again soon.
This was the message week or so ago when Mt. House shut down their DEALER…[Read more]
Dow closed down over 2,000 points. WTI and Brent Crude down yuge as well, but a lot of that because of Saudi/Russian price war. Gas should get a little cheaper soon.
Both of these will have trickle down effects.
Ideally we should be rotating LTS so as to get and stay accustomed to the food.
This is what the Mormoms meant when they stated “Eat what you store and store what you eat.” Unfortunately new “preppers” have taken that phrase to mean store frozen pizzas and pop targs
Rotation gets tougher in quantity. For example back in the day I put…[Read more]
Walton/Rainy Day resells for a lot of places.
I’ve never stored cornstarch personally so I can’t speak to that one.
One thing to look at in general is just can condition.
Double enamaled #10 cans is what should be used. Waltons/Rainy Day is definitely good to go. The others you may want to check. A double enamaled can should be gold colored…[Read more]
Be careful with any “mixes” that include baking POWDER. This can and usually will over time cause the can to bulge. I’ve thrown out dozens upon dozens of cans of product that included this over the years, ALL bulged. Don’t even think about piercing the can anywhere but outside.
Dairy products that were 7-10 years old I would sample one and see,…[Read more]
More is always better.
First CTT/Heat 1 I took my son to one of the guys had to bail the last day. Max asked for volunteers to run the drills 2X- once in their current team and a 2nd time to fill out the missing person. My son raised his hand. I said “your going to be tired but you’ll get a helluva lot of practice.” I stuffed mags to keep him…[Read more]
