    I'm good at all the things mentioned but need some work relearning how
    to dehydrate foods.
    Meat, as in jerky, never tried drying fish but want too, veggies, etc.
    I have a 7 tray meat dehydrator I haven't used in years.
    I'm o.k. with general canning in jars and have done it for years and have
    books.
    Same with pickling and salt preserving veggies.
    Pickled beans anyone? Salt brine pickled, takes weeks.
    Never salted fish but it can be done I guess.
    I need work in those areas.
    WORK!?
    Did I use the "W" word?
    Horrors.:eek:

    We use our wood fired cook stove to dry all foods, meat & vegies.
    Yes fish has been salted for transportation & preserving for over 300 years.

    Didn't indigenous people of old in all parts of the globe use fire to
    smoke and dry meats of all kinds including fish?

    Not sure about indigenous Australians, but yes & believe many aboriginals used this method. The smoke is as much for keeping the flies off as it is for drying the meat. You have to be careful not to cook the meat, as it will not keep as well once cooked.

    Nice pics of the racks and a good idea.
    I can probably duplicate that.
    I read that the American Indians did that same thing.
    By the by, indigenous and native peoples mean the same thing.
    Synonyms don'cha' know. :>)

    Redneck, Hillbilly, Farmer!
    It don't get no better than that!:D

    I'll claim that for myself though I was born in Michigan and raised in Ohio.
    I spent summer with my aunt and uncle that raised and or grew, or shot, trapped,
    caught, about everything they ate.
    I grew up trapping, hunting, shooting, gardening, helping butcher pigs,
    beef, chickens, ducks, rabbits,..........................whew!
    Traps and snares work while you rest don'cah'know!
    It's pretty hard to starve an ol' hillbilly.:p

    I fear most of all the hoards fleeing the chaos, rapes, hunger, theft, gangs, spawed
    in the cities.
    How to protect my goods, garden, stash, etc.?
    I gotta sleep sometime.
    Oughta be some sort of alarm one can work up without wiring and electricity.
    Trip wire that sets off a shotgun shell perhaps?
    Not to injure or kill but to scare off and alert me.
    Gotta be plant for things like that.
    Improvised alarms?

    Lock 'n load.

    whats wrong with being a hermit? it'll be a long time after SHTF before "society" rears its ugly head again, if ever.
    with a dead manufacturing base and no way to restart it, many things that we have now wont be possible then.
    once the power grid goes down its game over for at least 80% of the population.(that's the 80% that live in cities and have to be provisioned from outside).

    "whats wrong with being a hermit?"
    Welllllllllllllllll, depending upon ones situation maybe absolutely nothing.
    On the other hand we humans are social critters.
    Always have been since man discovered fire but more important SEX.
    If mankind were hermits I doubt anyone of us would be here.
    Now to modern times and a shtf.
    Wanna go it completely alone?
    Go fer it.
    If you fall down and break a wrist, arm, leg, get sick, develop an allergy
    to something unforeseen, you are on your own.
    Your survival chances are pretty low.
    And even if you are that wanna be mountain man do you really want to
    be?
    Again; if so then by all means go fer it.
    I'd like to think survivors would be the nexus for rebuilding society.
    If one just thinks for a micron of one second WE WOULD NOT BE HERE
    if we didn't bunch up and from societies.
    A few simple examples of a few things that happened to me ALONE
    and the unforeseen jumped up a bit me.
    Cutting firewood and felled a tree but didn't see the widow maker.
    A large dead limb laying across the tree top.
    The tree fell against another and sling shot the large dead branch and it hit
    me pretty good.
    It was nearly a week before my bruised right arm and shoulder were usable
    again.
    Cutting firewood again and a tree I felled hit a 3" diameter sapling that splintered
    and parts came at me like an arrow.
    Hum?
    They missed but I could have been skewered.
    I tripped and slipped one winter on ice and sprained an ankle and had
    to crawl a quarter mile to the car then the e.r. where I was wrapped and I
    limped for weeks.
    Other stories? I got lots of 'em.
    Bare with me.
    A fellow climbed into his tree stand and hauled his "empty" gun up with a stout
    cord. The cord broke, the gun hit the ground butt first, discharged and shot him
    right up the poop shoot.
    ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww
    He lived long enough to crawl part way to his car where he died.
    Hummmmmmmmm???
    Another fella archery hunting from his tree stand managed to stick himself
    with a razor head broad head and bled out before he could make it to help.
    I got lots of stories but most people will get the point. (bad pun)
    Oh, yeah. This one happened in my neck of the woods.
    Fella climbed into his tree stand and FELL.
    He got wedged in a large fork of the tree breaking ribs and puncturing
    a lung.
    He's awake, alert, and damaged.
    NO ONE knew where he hunting.
    He knew no one was coming so managed to lever himself out of the fork
    and FALL another 10 feet or so onto the ground and passed out.
    He awoke after dark, alone and hurt badly. NO FLASHLIGHT matches, etc.
    He nearly froze to death before a search party of his buddies found him.
    The cops do not have resources to look for a missing hunter for at least
    24 hours if lucky.
    Wanna be a hermit.
    Please do.

    "Rebuild Society" why, for crying out loud?
    as for "social creatures", if people cant survive on their own, they wont live long enough to even find other survivors much less band together.
    there seems to be this assumption that everyone alive today will be alive post SHTF, WRONG.
    without all the things that people seem to need to survive these days, the survival rate when all that is gone will be miniscule.
    just trying to find others could take months, if not years, depending on ones location, in the meantime you've still got to survive. or not.

    You're right of course.
    If I had to guess 80% of people pre shtf will be gone 3 months or less post
    shtf.

    I like some opinions from members here on that last sentence 'cause
    I don't have a clue. It's a guess.
    In my opinion prepping to survive should absolutely include the ability
    to contact others of like mind post shtf.
    I intend to survive, thus why I'm here.
    Not so much for myself but for family and possibly others of like mind.
    Maybe.
    I must come first. Without me my family and or others haven't a snowballs
    chance in hell.
    They think I'm a tad nuts for stocking up on weapons, ammo, knives, tools,
    meds, first aid, and food stuffs.
    I sure don't know everything, ego why I'm here.
    If I knew everything I'd write books and make more money to buy a bunker
    someplace.

    Surviving in crowded N.E. Ohio ain't gonna be easy.
    Once again I really fear the "gimmie" people.
    Those on the multi-generational dole expecting white taxpayers and
    the Gov't to bail the out.
    In a real shtf it ain't gonna happen.
    Movie " The Day After " (1983 ?) was a great story of what would happen
    the day after an all out nuclear exchange.
    Looters shot by firing squads of State Nat'l guard and some surviving
    police.
    The t-v movie outlined a very possible situation and money is 100%
    worthless.
    Grocery and drug stores looted within hours before guard or police
    can even think about responding.

    Good show and worth trying to find and watch it.

    Finding others like us.
    Is this a possible thread starter?
    HOW to find others like us and how to judge if "others" are safe and trustworthy?
    Thought?
    C.B. or ham radio?
    Lots of those radio people are also preppers.
    I dunno.

    I fear preppers and survivalists more than any gang or mob!

    Preppers and survivalists already have all the answers to all the problems and will
    seek to impose their will on others!
    A lot here display the above! you will do this you will do that, if you are not this if you are that
    if you do not do this or that blah blah blah I will shoot you!
    Preppers and survivalists quite easily assume the role of enforcer, judge and executioner
    putting themselves above the rest! on the assumption that whatever they think is right is law!

    I would rather in a post Apocalyptic world form or join a group of most anyone than form up with other preppers/survivalists!
    They know it all so it is there way or the highway to a grave!:)
    This is my experience from meeting and conversing with several hundred preppers/survivalists over four decades!

    Most will not accept anyone elses Authority but expects all others to accept their Authority under threat of violence!
    Go Figure!:confused:

    Whoa!!!!!!!!!!!! What you just said is 180 degrees out of phase with reality!!!!!!! Impose our will on others?! Where the #### did that come from?! ALL of the survivalists I've known since back in the 1980s, well actually the 1970s, have been a folk who want to be the left the #### alone!!!!!

    I know that all I want from others is to mind their own business, even as do I.

    Well we are about 180degrees apart physically! I am near Brisbane Australia and you I think are somewhere in north America!
    I have been meeting survivalists since the mid seventies!
    All of them have been control freaks to greater or lesser degrees!
    None will deal with others unless it is strictly on their terms
    They all have their set moral code that they expect others to obey
    They all intend to enforce their own moral code with any and all they meet!
    They all immediately label people as good or bad in accordance with their moral code!

    They are for the most part Armed hostile control freaks
    And quite willing to shoot someone over a bent penny!

    This is not as I was hoping it would be but after fourty years of research that's the way it is!


    I know that all I want from others is to mind their own business, even as do I.
    See that is your moral code, you think it is right and would shoot to kill to uphold your moral code!
    Problem is most other survivalists have their own moral code that they will shoot to kill to uphold
    And it WILL be different to yours in some shape or form! and both sides will think it is worth killing over as there pride will not permit any backdown!

    I have seen it happen! boy gets girl preggo, girls parents wants the boy responsible punished because it must have been rape as the daughter is an angel!
    blah blah blah, sides are taken neither side will be seen to back down etc etc etc! it all gos to hell in a handbasket and blood gets spilt!

    Too many Alpha males with to much ego/pride etc! it happens now in streets neighbourhoods etc come the Apocalypse it will only get worse!

    So these control freaks have come onto your land to impose their will upon you and yours? You have had survivalists as trespassers?

    It is easy to NOT trespass. I never have and quite frankly, I've yet to witness survivalists out a'rampaging. Trespassers are called "looters" and "invaders". A survivalist prepares so that he and his need not ever trespass! It is the very purpose in preparing, so that one will not have to go on any sort of aggressions against the innocent ... or the guilty, or anybody.

    I do well to control my own world as do most mature adults.

    Yes a few have tried! but mostly it is their attitudes!
    You meet them on neutral grounds and as you get talking you find they have all the answers and those answers are the only allowable answers!

    Sadly most survivalists fall into the stupid category! They have a fixed set of beliefs that they usually copied from youtube or the likes and blindly apply them!
    There are a few smart ones out there but most of them are control freaks!

    I have found most fanatics at prepping survival religion sports cars trains etc are lacking in the grey cabinet!
    I used to think that preppers and survivalist types were a cut above the rest but they keep proving me wrong!

    I am whatever I need to be at the time!
    I have done the loner as I have the wanderer and the outdoors man
    done the farmer/rancher bit too and the pro-hunter bit
    even spent time as a city dweller as in now!

    At this point in time I am doing my duty as a carer stuck in a city!
    Once that duty is done I will be hitting the road in a converted 12m bus/motorhome! and no fixed location!
    At present I looks like I will be by myself but that's ok!
    I intend to live an endless summer hunting and fishing all over Australia!
    While being as self sufficient as I can be!
    I might settle again but then again I might not!

    I have done the retreat thing but the breakup of relationships has screwed that a few times now so I am not entering another relationship again
    other than something short term.
    I might team up with another survivalist but probably not!
    I might even resume competition shooting of some sort!

    probably all of the above.
    I refer to myself as a prepared survivalist.
    in my country preppers are only looking at short term events, survivalists (of which there are but a few here) like myself are looking more long term.

    My skills? I have such a wide range in modern world. I am a maintenance man and so I can do so many things pre shtf After a calmity. I have all these skills and try to keep my knowledge up. So where as today I spend so much time surviving in the modern world. If I had to make a sudden and dramatic shift. I believe I am mentally prepared for so much. I can weld, run a mill and lath. Work with electrical of all types. I have gardened off and on most of my life. I have hunted a lot but don't consider myself a master. I have had medical first responder training in the past. I can do as needed for many situations.I have a skill or trait that differs me from others. I don't panic. Something big happens and Its like the world goes into slow motion and I act. Don't know why but as a maintenance person. I have ran to the problem a dozen times when other run away scared. Prompt quick action makes all the difference in the world. Anyway

    Maybe electricians can restore the electricity.
    In post shtf we need engineers and technicians of all kinds and if those
    professionals are also survival minded so much the better.
    I have two degrees, engineering and human resources, + about
    30 certifications from the Ohio Peace Officers Training Academy.
    Then there are the training classes sponsored by the F.B.I., BATF, Secret
    Service, and more.
    Most are firearms related training.
    Sniper, assault rifle, shotgun, revolver, machine gun, gas launcher,...............
    ad nauseam.
    Which skills will be most valuable in post shtf?

    ALL OF THEM!

    Or all of the above.
    Snowflakes need not apply.
    Snowflake = sensitive, delicate, unique, and melt when the heat is turned up.
    Also = A person who falls apart at the slightest hint of criticism or something they don't like to hear.
    Any other terms apply to snowflake?

    Can we just imagine a shtf situation when "gimmie" people are cut of from welfare
    benefits, free food, free care, free money, free rent, free utilities, free.......................
    Please post them.
    I'm always looking to increase my vocabulary.
    Survival is difficult if one is stupid.:D

    Maybe someone here can enlighten me?
    Whats the difference between a worker who works in a factory etc and a Beno (someone who gets unemployment Benefits )
    After TSHTF
    Both will be unemployed! both will have only whats in the house to eat, both will lose water, both will lose power etc etc!
    The Beno will have an advantage by having current experience bumping along in the gutter!
    Where as the factory worker will have current experience working and paying bills!
    Which is more skilled for the Apocalypse?

    The guy that works.
    The person that works isn't LAZY.
    The "beno" is lazy.
    That's the short answer.

    The two things that will get you killed quickest is laziness and stupidity. Some people are blessed with ample quantity of both.

    Hate to say it but I have to agree there!
    Laziness can be fixed
    But "stupid" one takes to their grave!

    (stereotyping)
    Indeed.
    Space and time limits writing a book on the subject.
    Being as I was a social worker of sorts I've seen a lot of multi generational
    "gimmie" people.
    Third and forth generation people on the dole for no other reason than
    they won't work for a living.
    Entitlement people. " You all owe me" types.
    I'm kind of on the dole.
    Disability and social security.
    13 serious injuries including my back broken four times.
    Right knee was replaced with stainless steel and Teflon.
    Even at that I endured 9 months of physical rehab, at age 48 went to college
    and earned two degrees then worked another 8 years at General Motors.
    Working in spite of permanent intractable pain that never goes away.
    My disability comes from private insurance I PAID for.
    The social security I earned by working.
    I know people that never worked but are on disability.
    Legitimately. My fiance's daughter is mentally ill.
    Poor woman is not only mentally ill she's borderline retarded.
    Even at that she is able to work a bit part time and EARN extra
    money.
    "Those that can do."
    "Those that can't teach."
    "Those that can't teach, teach teachers."
    "Those that won't do anything go on welfare."
    I'm partially crippled, 70 years old, and thinking of
    getting a part time job bagging groceries to buy some extra goodies.

    Dad never finished the 3rd grade, mother the 9th.
    My mother and father both worked for a living.

    I recall arresting people for burglary, other thefts, and selling illegal drugs
    that were also collecting welfare.
    Go figger.
    A funny story.
    Investigating a burglary I found the thief's unemployment i.d. card
    near the window he broke to get in.
    He went to jail and STILL got benefits.

    there are many out there, they aren't stupid, but if they can get away without working, then they will. the "something for nothing" brigade.
    well it isn't going to work POST SHTF, you don't work-you don't get fed, mate.

    I'm a nurse so I can probably help out with medical stuff if ever a disaster strikes. I haven't been on duty for 5 years now, but I still know the basics like asepsis, basic medical treatment, diagnosing, etc; so you'll probably find me in a medical tent helping the docs treat the injured and sick. I think that's pretty much my only marketable skill. I can't lift things, I don't know how to talk to people; but hey, as long as humanity has been alive there's always been a sector of the community that's in charge of health. I can be in that sector.

    There's an advantage of being a woman because we are gifted in so many ways. I'm good at planning and organizing ahead. I can cook variety of food which is a common talent of women and I know what kinds of food that are good in certain kind ailments. Most of all I'm good in doing handicrafts.

    Wow, people here are skilled interms of being a survivalist. Im not a survivalist but i know a thing or two about preservation like smoking meat and preserving with the use of salt. I also know how to make some salts, naturally and chemically. Making makeshift bunks is what i can do best.

    Wow I thought I was prepared! I won't try to out do this post. There is no way in hell that I can do that LOL

    I am a survivalist in that I can find food if I have a knife and a fishing pole. There are plenty of grub worms to be eating!

    As a survivalist I will fight in place in my home. When the SHTF and martial law is declared, I will not leave my family under any circumstances. I have an arsenal and could fight a small War for probably a month or more. My house is set up with steel doors steel inserts and steel barriers. I have everything that's what has and then some. While most people were buying gold and silver or Investments, I was buying bullets. So much ammo that I promised myself I would never allow it to be entered into a forum for public View.

    I'll use the US Marine Corps saying I'm a master of many crafts which deal with breaking and killing things. I'm a journey-man in all other things.

    Have a nice day.

    I'm a jack of all trades, a master of some and have been prepared for a world shattering disaster since the late 60s and early 70s. I was raised in this sort of thing and long before it was stylish I was preparing for TEOTWAWKI.
