survivalstorehouse: We did a lot of taste tests - its all vanilla shortbread taste - Mainstay was good because it held moisture and so wasn't thirst provoking - but yeah you had to be pretty hungry to enjoy it :-)

myrrph: I have been thinking about savoury long life survival food coz I am not a big fan of sweet stuff. but you're right, the thirst factor is a major point. I've tried making pemmican (and failed) now gonna try hard tack (like at last!).

myrrph: One good thing about this pandemic, is that it allows me to try all these nice prepping things ^_^

spinifex: And now SA is in a full Lockdown for 7 days ... toilet paper sold out within hours!! LMAO What the heck is with that behavior??

Tri-Polar: Plenty of time to do some weeding, since i spent an hour today and barely made a dent. But QLD, so no lockdown. But if we did, ammunition supply is essential, thus still going to work.

SA Hunter: We've got up to 40mm rain coming next 7 days - another shed clean up is on the cards.

SA Hunter: People on social media whinging that the shelves at supermarket empty, nothing for them to buy - lessons not being learnt!

malewithatail: Went shopping today, holes appearing in shelves at wollies. Amazing. get prepped people.

Tri-Polar: What an afternoon. 4 hours of trying to set up and position my 4g directional antenna (1hour to drive into town for fittings and back). Sealed up hole and roof. Then realize i forgot to re run my VHF/UHF antenna wire.
