|What Can Go Wrong|
Well, with Trump saying it is now the calm before the storm I thought it was appropriate to check in with my prepper pals to see what is up.
We continue to be best at rotating the booze, wine and beer. So.....we stocked up yet again. This time we raised the assigned stock levels.
Propane, firewood, etc. all in good shape. Just need to purchase a bit more gasoline.
Going to get some more leathers for our hand pumps. Almost forgot about that. Just in case it really goes shit fuck!
I remember as a kid some of my parents pals bought some guns preserved in "cosmoline". WTF is that shit?
Also prepping for when the internet goes poof. Learning how to communicate by beating on hollow logs, smoke signals and yelling "He Toivo what happenin over der hey"!
Appreciate tips on what I am missing.

For those of you from Rio Lindo who do not know what pump leathers are....here is a pic.
I have two of my 3 homes set up so that they can have hand pumps next to their kitchen sinks ready to go in about 10 minutes in a pinch. The third cabin has a deep well so any refugees there will have to kiss ass to get their 5 gallon buckets filled.
No city sewer, just septics.....shit flows downhill and goes away without any power. You can flush the toilets with a bucket of water.
All units have wood heat.
Numero uno is shelter. Check!
Numero two is food and water. Check!
Well.....maybe numero uno should be protection. Doing the best I can on that one.
Cosmoline is the genericized trademark for a common class of brown wax-like petroleum-based rust inhibitors, typically conforming to United States Military Standard MIL-C-11796C Class 3. They are viscous when freshly applied, have a slight fluorescence, and solidify over time and exposure to air.

Harvest is over and it's food processing and preservation time. We're working against the clock getting everything put up, multi-tasking beyond abilities, and getting things done. Freezers are stuffed, dehydrator stuffed, jars are stuffed, crocks and fermentors are stuffed.
We still have 500 pounds of apples to sort and process. The perfect eating and storage apples for bin #1, pie, sauce and canning apples in bin #2, cider apples into bin #3. Once these bins are empty I'll pick grapes. They're ripening late this year.
Ya gonna be doin anything up in Cosmoline?
