  1. I am new here. Should we stay here in intros or open a new site? Please advise, rancher. Off to bed now been a long day here getting work done to prepare. Good nite....
  2. Thank you for the response. When I refer to a total power grid shut down that includes pressurized public water off line, as they need electricity to run their pumps,land line telephones have a 48 hour battery back up and then they are dead.

I wished I could find a couple barrels like Jesus made. We settled for bottles. Oh well :). We were wondering if there was a "thread" or "forum" section here that dealt with what you all have done about some core items like generators/solar, fuel reserves, protecting what you have obtained, how you are protecting your loved ones in and during what could be a very ugly, long and desparate extended blackout durin
  6. Hello out there. A member or your site referred us to you folks. We might do the ice tea thing around here after all the snow melts and it warms up some more. For now my lovely wife and I are enjoying the red and white wines. Call it tea if you wish to:). Hope to observe some and maybe throw in a comment here and there. take care, rancher
