I just had a quarter ton of dried beans delivered, ask me a question
Decided to supplement all the freeze dried supplies with rice, beans, quinoa, and that kind of shit. Beans just arrived.

Quote of the day from my daughter, "Thats gonna cause a lot of toots."


I am watching a new ISP install a new primary Internet line right now, cable of all fucking things, and I am seriously debating buying an inmarsat hot spot for emergency internet comms. Gonna move my VDSL connection to backup.

Check it: [link to iridium.com (secure)]

I like me some inmarsat, use them at work every day.

~sigh~

At least some of us will survive.

GOOD FOR YOU!

How much did it cost?

Those of us without jobs and just getting by-used up most of our preps already - so sad...

Any advice for an internet job?

I looked at FLIPPA to buy a site but I don't know - even the ones that say the SEO is done don't sound like much...

Remember folks - a website is like a STAR IN THE SKY I say-too many to get noticed.

Glad GLP got my attention - I really like the funny stuff

Brown rice?
Organic short-grain Brown rice, I hope, for your family's sake.

White rice has -0- nutrition. Brown rice is the King of nutrition.

Beans and rice do combine to make a complete protein, not white rice though. Good for you on the Quinoa purchase! It is another superfood.

Variety of beans is a good idea. You will learn they have different taste characteristics, some are actually "meaty". If you can find organic, non-gmo, Soy beans they are very versatile.

Need recipes for your whole grains, beans and lentils? These foods are the mainstay of Macrobiotics. Lots of recipes there which will be tasty and build your immune system.

500lbs of beans may seem like a lot, but it isn't, not for more than 2 persons. Lots of reasons to grind beans into flour, to sprout them, maybe use some for planting...

Got hard red Winter Wheat? Got a grain mill to crack grain for cereal and make flour in different consistencies? Hand grinding is long and tedious. Electric mill takes, power...


Got a generator, battery charger, storage battery and inverter you can tie-in to your breaker box so you have power whenever you want?

Got the clean/new 5gal food storage or even paint buckets w/gasket lids to store your rice, beans, and grains? Ea bucket will hold almost 35lbs. You wipe out each bucket with hydrogen peroxide or mild bleach solution, let dry. Get bricks of Dry Ice from the grocer's. Fill ea bucket about 1/3. Break the dry ice into chips about fingernail size. Layer-in about 8-9 chips, fill next 1/3 add more chips, fill to top leaving room for gasket lid to be closed, add last layer of chips and leave lid on Loosely for 45mins to allow chips to gassify. CO2 drives out the oxygen and kills any bug larvae or eggs that might hatch. Hammer down the lid, after marking the date and contents w/label or paper tape.

Easier to carry in a bucket w/handle. Bags will absorb moisture, rip/tear in normal use. Buckets stack easily and can be buried if need be to assure all your food isn't looted or stolen...

Got a pressure cooker? An Ohsawa Pot? Ohsawa Pot cooks rice in pressure cooker to perfection. Macrobiotic thing. Try your library or real-deal healthfood store to look through a Macro cookbook or two. If you want to get the most out of your food it is worth checking Macrobiotics out.

Forgot to mention; lots of ways to soak beans before cooking and eliminate gassiness...

Most of the world lives on Brown rice and beans. Brown rice usually cheaper than white rice in 3rd world, peasants usually in better health because of the nutrition of the rice husk and not paying more to have processed/polished rice which removes the nutrition which is all inherent to the husk...

Re: I just had a quarter ton of dried beans delivered, ask me a question
I got 100 pounds of white rice just for variety, most of it is that hard as balls short brown, in individual 25 pound bags. Have about 1/4 ton.

What I really need is a new generator. Mine literally just went crazy.

Fucking auto transfer switch has a mind of its own. It is propane, and has enough fuel to run 1 circuit of lights, both freezers, the network stack, and all the ceiling fans in the house for about 90 days.

I wanted to buy a 1000 gallon underground tank, but my wife was like, "You're a loony."

WHO'S LOONEY NOW, EH?

We had enough freeze dried foods, propane to heat the water to cook it , water (2 wells, different depths, 1 of them all solar with manual pump option) to make it almost a 20X incubation period shelter in place, but I think I can make the freeze dried stuff last twice that by mixing it with rice and beans.


To the guy above that cautions 1/2 ton of beans and rice won't last very long.

I'm with you. I agree.

I have about 500 lbs of white rice stashed away, in addition to the healthier stuff.

I do understand that it's short on nutritional value, but would argue that carbs are carbs, and carbs are good when you need energy.

If and when I have to spend the whole day slogging through the hammocks and swamps, checking trotlines and snares, a big steaming bowl of white rice in the morning will keep me going for quite a while.

I don't know. Not much (for the beans at least) Here is where I ordered them [link to www.ifsbulk.com (secure)]


How much does 100,000 rounds of .22 ammo cost? Hell if I know, but I have it.


I have been prepping since Snowball, I am technically a Tsunamitard.

Perhaps I am indeed a looney...
