    They don't, at least Grey Jays don't taste like chicken. Wilderness survival course I once did in CO.

Streets are dangerous and mostly blocked with dead cars. Trade is not an option for several months from a pandemic. The black plague lasted for 4 1/2 years.

    Reports on the TV today, the next day all is shut down along with the electric grid, water and natural gas stops within a few days.

    No easy way to melt lead for bullets or purifying water, no extra tampons for the lady, No Rambo movies on TV. Got preps for all that?

    Assuming all of your group was at home how long could you stay on your property?
    Damn, I thought this was a site for preppers, I'm surprised at how few could go more than 4 months.

    Sounds like a lot to ammo talk but not much actual prepping.

    It wasn’t me... haven’t been down to your Walmart since just before Christmas.

    We did make it to the Walmart up here yesterday. I was surprised at how well the shelves were stocked. It was a madhouse.

    We’re in need of more shelving before adding to our supply.

    Haven’t tasted a Grey Jay (we called them Camp Robbers) or formal ID, Clark’s Nutcracker. I did shoot one with a steel ball bearing and wrist rocket sling shot once when I was a kid. He was perched on spruce bow about twenty feet away. Hit him right in the breast, feathers flew everywhere, he somersaulted backwards several times in mid air and proceeded to fly away.

    Toughest bird I had ever hit! Bet they’re chewy...

    Build some shelves, add a closet out in the garage, buy one of those large plastic garden boxes.
    There is always storage space available.

    That's a difficult question to answer. The best answer I have is it depends. It depends what the refugee flow is, how much rain we get, and what time of year it is. It depends on how quickly I can get crops in, how much water we get to water said crops, and whether I can(see her is where ammo comes in) defend it.
