Hello from Michigan
« on: November 29, 2012, 08:07:25 AM »
Just introducing myself, I am a outdoors person/camper/hunter/ fisherman. A do it yourself type. I have been prepping most of my adult life and know from first hand experience the value of putting by stuff for hard times (to many layoffs and doctor bills) I am also a type 2 non-brittle diabetic.

Welcome Musket User (would love to learn that by the way).  I'm glad you mention the importance of having preps on hand just for hard times.  I've found myself pulling from our stored food (not a lot to begin with) as the economy has had quite the impact on my husband's business. 

I hope you enjoy it here.  I don't comment a lot, but I read what the knowledge members of this site have to say on a daily basis.

Welcome, Musket!

I follow your strategy as well, and it pays off.  More than a year ago, coffee heareabouts skyrocketed, almost doubling in price at my local Costco.  I just started using what I had stored.  After a year, prices came back down, and I stocked up again.  I do the same with a lot of the things I use regularly - canned tomatoes, bacon, coffee, pasta, and so on.  And I do have enormous stores of the basics - beans, rice, peas and lentils, and popcorn.  I don't store wheat - I'm allergic to the stuff.  Cornbread slathered with lard tastes just fine, as far as I'm concerned, though.  And it's easy to bake in my solar oven.

Greetings from PA....we have a section for diabetes on here...maybe you have some good tips for those of us whom are diabetic...


So are you a black powder hunter...we have a lot of "musket loaders" around here....as a matter of fact, I think the season starts right after Christmas....I'll have to ask my Dad as that he like to go "musket loading"....I might even has some old pics of a Black Powder Shoot that we had years ago....I have to look...

I do hunt with and shoot black powder weapons. I am a capital city (Lansing) resident.
