    Made an online order three weeks ago. Should have only taken 3 days to arrive. USPS send the package to 7 different BMCs before it finally found the right one.

    FINALLY got my ten dust masks. One for the BOB, one for each GHB, and seven more for,......... well,............ the helluvit.

    Went with cotton instead of the paper disposable ones from Home Cheapo. Paper gets wet and is worthless. Rips too easy. And cannot be reused. Cloth ones overcome those shortcomings.
    Keep calm and try setting SCE to AUX.

    I order a battery charger for ham radio out of Milwaukee, WI. Should have been 3 days to my address in AZ. At four days,
    I call vendor. they did a tracking number and it was gout for delivery, the next day. I didn't get it the next day, so called
    the vendor again. The perosn tracking the paCKAGE TOLD ME IT WAS IN us Virgin Islands. I asked them to check the
    address and they confirmed it was my address in AZ that it had been sent to. USPS really messed that one up. Finally
    howed up 3 days later with my correct address on the box. ??????????

    Made up a humongous batch of chili Tuesday. Put up about 10-12 servings into the freezer today with the end goal of vac-sealing it.

    Stopped by the local thrift store today. MAJOR SCORE!!!!

    They usually have only 15-20 men's jackets, mostly S and M sizes. Today, however, was totally different. A good 50+ jackets out on the rack. Some even up to 4X. So I grabbed a couple.

    What Was Your Prep Of The Day (Part 2)-thrift-store-clothing-score.jpg

    The blue one in the top left is a rain jacket/windbreaker shell. Six bucks (50% sale today!) https://www.columbia.com/mens-glenna...t-1442361.html
    The red one is a much heavier rain jacket. Eight bucks! Close to this: https://www.columbia.com/mens-summit...ationColor=795

    Also three pairs of new blue jeans, $4 each. A lightweight long-sleeve shirt (plaid, $4) and a heavier long-sleeve shirt (tan one, $6).

    Damn, I love that store!

    Split several months worth of kindling for the woodstove, still need to split more wood for the dome oven which we often cook in.
    Ran a brush down the wood stove chimney and generally got the place ready for colder tempature plugging in heat tapes, covering outdoor faucets, and closing the vents in the crawlspace under the house.

    Topped off the water in the solar batteries and adjusted charging voltages for shorter winter days. Test started the emergency generator, with the solar system the gas generator is we haven't needed in over 5 years but still a prep I maintain.

    Removed the Varroa Destructor mite strips from the honey bee hives. The Varroa mite is the bane of bee keepers and if left untreated most hives will be dead or very weak within 2-3 years.

    Since I consider the honeybees a prep I went ahead and ordered the stuff I'll need to keep the hives healthy next year. Most of the hives were started from swarms I caught this spring with traps put out in some fields a few miles away from the house. We got 15 gallons of honey by late summer which will be used for making mead and Christmas presents.

    This morning I picked up enough chicken feed to keep the chickens eating until next spring along with more dog food. I've found that both chicken and dog food holds fine when it's cooler weather but goes bad within about 6 months during warmer weather.

    Rustled up a huge pot of goulash for lunch. One plate for me, several containers for the freezer.

    And it was made with the ashes of real ghouls!
