What are you doing to today or recently to prepare, emergency foods preps, guns, gear, ammo, etc and how will it help you (reasons may inspire others)?
I’ll start off here.
After years of wanting, i finally have one, Harvest Right Home Freeze Dryer.
Making foods and candies for myself, friends, and family, to begin stocking up meats and more for long term storage without a freezer.
Ive done some candy/ice-cream loads to get familiar with the machine, doing my first big load which is mostly lowfat yogurt bites and some pistachio ice-cream in a rectangular brick form.
Next load will be shredded cheese and after that, likely a bunch of costco rotisserie chicken and hamburger…
Hope to sell Freeze Dried Candy as my state allows up to 20k in sales from Cottage Laws to pay off my machine and fund more preps.
Will also be prepping candy for long term and candy is usually ignored for prepping. Reason for candy, if you have ever skipped a meal and done exercise or work and you started shaking (low blood sugar), you need some sweets to recover. Rice and beans or other preps wont be as convenient or good as a few skittles and freeze dried candies usually melt in your mouth vs being harder to eat.
Since I’m off work for a work injury, I have been PT on my own time (aside from at the hospital), helping at a friends gun store. As such, I try and pickup a box of ammo or 2 each time I go even if its just .22lr.
Gardening being another prep, planted a vine type green beans, not for me but for my wife as i dont really like them, super 100 tomatoes to be planted next…
Joined a local range, just under 2 weeks till orientation, practice is prepping…
