With our upcoming move back to the states there are a lot of things I want to do in life and survivalism. One of the biggest things in survivalism is really getting a serious food storage program in place. I talked about it with Wifey today. Instead of buying PM’s we are going to put that money towards food for awhile.
I do not really plan to open up a discussion about the strengths or weaknesses of PM’s. Some folks say you should have you ‘beans, bullets and bandaids’ squared away before putting a dime into PM’s. I am not sure I agree with that. I look at PM’s as being useful for a certain range of situations (and the same for food storage). For a long time we bought food and PM’s. I think proportion is they key. If you have 3 months worth of food, some guns, ammo and fuel and a couple dozen one ounce silver rounds that is cool. If you have hundreds of ounces of silver and a few ounces of gold but no firearms, ammo or food storage that is a bad plan.
The reason we are doing this is that due to repeated moves we are starting over in food storage. By putting additional resources into food storage we can jump start that area and get it to where we want it to be. Relatively speaking our PM situation is pretty good. PM’s are the area where I am willing to accept some tactical risk. Far more so than say ammo or fuel or gear. Holding off on PM purchases (and putting the money to food) for awhile will help us get things back on track. I expect this will last for roughly a year.
Also this time Wifey is going to be more involved with our food storage plan. This will help us buy the right stuff at the best possible prices and use it. All lessons learned from our past and recent experiences.
Anyway that is what is new with us.
Enjoy your weekend, unplug from all the electronic junk, go out and spend some time with actual people in meatspace. If that time can be out in the wild all the better.
