Expiration Dates of canned foods

February 28, 2010 - "Expiration Dates of canned foods" By Joseph Parish. One of the most frequent questions often asked by preppers who have recently begun their food storage program is how long specific foods will last before going bad. Although many companies list expiration dates for their products, I generally have found these were more of a CYA then anything else. Usually the corporation would rather err on the side of safety then risk a legal entanglement. I personally do not place much value in these dates for I have eaten canned vegetables that have expiration dates 5 years in the past. Click here

Bug out to North Carolina

February 23, 2010 - "Bug out to North Carolina" By Joseph Parish. We decided to mix pleasure with work and combined our winter Bug Out exercise with visiting my youngest son in North Carolina. This particular outing with the Dolphin motor home revealed many weak spots revolving around our trip planning. With that fact understood I started to investigate a better method of packing the RV. RV’s can be a great source of fun or as in our case a lifesaver when needed for survival but the key lies in packing it properly. Click here

BOV RV Modifications I

February 20, 2010 - "BOV RV Modifications I" By Joseph Parish. Our new bug out vehicle is a Dolphin Motor Home which has some 116,000 miles on it and it is still running strong. It takes a lot to kill those old 22R Toyota engines. We purchased our Dolphin for use as a BOV in the early part of 2010. It is a model 400 which places the sofa behind the driver seat and the bathroom in the rear. Like anyone else who owns a motor home we take pride in the modifications that we have planned for our Dolphin BOV. All modifications listed here are planned for our own use only and we will not be responsible for anyone else’s use of these modifications. Click here

What kind of skills do you have?

February 19, 2010 - "What kind of skills do you have?" By Joseph Parish. Often people simply do not have the necessary funds needed to purchase survival retreats so the next best thing is to join some sort of organized group. Naturally, nothing in life is free and you will need to pay something for the benefits of belonging to this group in one way or another. If you are lacking the necessary funds needed then perhaps your payment may be in the form of skillful labor. Click here
