Re: Poor Man's Food Preps - What I'm doing

Lots of good ideas. +1 to all.

But don't discount the beans and rice. If you prep it right it will keep for years. If you shop the sales there is no cheaper eating.

Re: Boy Scouts alternatives

Around here there are family camping clubs that are less structured than the scouts. But give the scouts a second look. Lots of good training. The Venture groups are co-ed. And some of the skills are harder to transfer in a less formal setting. http://thefrugalhamstercyclist.blogspot.com/" onclick="...

Re: 5 Reasons not to eat your dog during the zombie apocalyp

Nice video.

All my puppy has to do is alert me to anything new in the area amd keep my lap warm. She is my extended eyes and ears. And my best friend.

I would never consider eating my best friend. But I would feed anyone else to her.

So where do you keep it? Is it some place you can grab and go, or do you keep it stored somewhere o...
