    Default Post your Preps/Tips and ideas.

    Idea from Streaker...

    Here is a thread to share ideas on preps, and tips on how to do it.
    Share photos, deals on prep items. Or questions about things to get. I see a wealth of knowledge scattered in other threads so here we can consolidate some of the goodies.

    Water is a big prep item. I try and keep a good stock of water. Food is so so. I could always have more. I think my family could hole up for maybe 2-4 mo depending on rationing. I know how fast the ammo scare cleared the shelves. If people get spooked that will happen with food. Medications will be a big issue for some people. Thankfully I don't have any medications to take. I highly highly recommend getting some wild edible/medicine books. Nothing better than treating some ailments with stuff growing in your yard. Making your own tinctures. I still have not found a North East wild medicine book I like. Anyone have recommendations?

    If I may, I'd like to make the suggestion to edit the title to something more searchable. The word "preps" is not something people will think to search for, and no other words in the title have any relevance.

    What about "Prepping - Post Your Survival Tips"?

    It doesn't have to be that, but it uses TWO searchable words that are relevant to the topic and increase the odds of finding the thread to post in it.

    Everyone wants a prepping subforum, but here's a thread on the topic and all the prepping discussion is in the Coronavirus thread!!!

    The people who prep know the words. :-p.

    Let extra space in your Mylar bags and get oversized oxygen absorbers. They are cheap. A mistake I made is to try and squeeze excess air out of the bags. Sure, it looks cool when the Mylar tightens down, but it makes pinholes way more likely.

    Also. No pinto beans. Tests over at survivalist boards show they get hard as rocks. They do not rehydrate. Period. Not in a pressure cooker. Not after days. Nothing. With a good grinder you can make a powder, but you’ll likely just break your Diamond tip grinder.

    Any other beans are fine.

    First rule of prepping is to not talk about prepping. Don’t let people know what you are doing to avoid having them show up at your door.

    That said, my plan is to show up at Justin’s with my popcorn, ammo and condoms and throw myself at his mercy.

    It would be crazy if the forum software had an ability to add extra forums for this topic.

    That isn't the issue. It was determined that this is a firearm forum and that extra subforums were not desired.
    That was probably a decade back though.

    Maybe revisit the idea again.
    I think there's a Support and Suggestions section.
