    Doing without now vs post SHTF

    It has been . . . suggested . . . there are few people who post good information.

    There has been some discussion about some tv show, calories in and calories out, the amount of physical activity in a post-SHTF situation.

    I own a small farm with small, medium and large livestock.

    I try to do everything around here as if the S has already HTF.
    About two years ago we got a early snow storm. The ATV got stuck in the snow. The last hog I had to put down for slaughter, I had to hump it out there with a plastic toboggan and haul the dead hog back.
    Upside, the snow made it somewhat easy to move.
    Downside, it was a good 400 or 500 yards hauling nearly 300lbs of dead weight.

    It is doable.

    Take a look around. See if there is anything you can do as if the S has HTF for a not only physical exercise, but mental one as well.
    Denton, bigwheel and Annie like this.

    were starving people, dogs and cats stealing all your stuff and shooting at you? Were diseases killing millions every month? then it was NOTHING like shtf is going to be.

    No one is going to be shooting at me.
    Around here, everyone knows everyone else.

    My neighbors also know there are those of us with the knowledge of how to grow things, raise livestock etc. that will be the ones who is going to be feeding everyone else.
    We all know we are not going to make it without help and helping each other.

    honed them over 30 years ago. Now all I have to do is maintain

    Right, like the 3% of the population that's on active farms and ranches can do jack squat vs the 97% that are going to be forced to come to you, due to lack of water and food. Dream on, dude. Your neighbors and YOU buy your food at Wally's, just like everyone else does. Lots of people lie about that, but it's the fact of the matter. My family are all farmers and they shop at wally's like everyone else does. Having a garden is a labor of love. It's not a practical use of your time, and it's at high risk for losses, from pests, drought, fungi, etc. That's why almost nobody bothers. They dont have Mason jars or pressure cookers, all the garden seed is hybrid. if shtf, you're not going to have fertilizer, pesticides, etc, and yes, people WILL be shooting at you.

    I knew you reminded me of a word from the Spanish language, but I just couldn't quite put my finger on it until now … URINE!

    3% on farms and ranches vs the 97% whom do not.

    If you recall your own posts, you claim two thirds of the population will be dead in a few months of SHTF situation.
    More likely 90-95%.

    So, those of us out here in rural areas do not have to worry about all those dead people.
    After all, they are dead.

    I do not buy from Wal-Mart out of general principle.
    I do not like low end crap food stuff.

    Your family clearly knows nothing about sustainable farming.

    Contrary to your limited experience, where I live, most have a garden of significant size. Most Mason jars and pressure cookers, we trade seeds, non-GMO.
    We use compost not fertilzer, again showing you and your family of farmers ignorance of sustainable farming,
    I do not use pesticides. Ever. Again, your ignorance is showing.
    No one is shooting at me. Again, your ignorance is showing.

    Sounds like the philosophy of a guy I know. He has plenty of ammo and two Moisins...and just plans to rob other folks when the end of he world shows up. Hes a Leninist..which is a variant of communism..which makes regular old communists look like what we call liberals/socialists. Hes a graduate of Texas Tech where he got his mind infected.

    I think you are projecting.

    To you, prepping is hoarding a couple sacks of rice and a few boxes of ammo, watching YouTube videos and following some staged TV show (they are all staged) or controlled to some degree. To you, by the way you have things planned, you'll be dead or a looter (again, dead in no time) shortly after things go decidedly south.

    Some of us have been readying for some time. Some of us have formed teams and are networked.

    Your posts, which are brilliant in your mind, are dim as a broken bulb to everyone else. Gee, I wonder why. You wander into our house because you have been kicked out of others. You immediately talk shit, post incoherent crap, throw up videos of people who can do it as if they represent you and then you get mad when we, a ccommunity, grow weary of your BS.

    I suspect you are going to have a bad time when the bad times come. You're a dick and your attitude is quite bad. You can be an asshole, but you can't be a dick.

    It's not too late. You can change. Do it for all those around you. Do it for yourself.
