Before you can accurately even ponder that question for an answer, putting a few stark toilet paper roll realities into perspective is required. On average, there are roughly…

Hello Pack. Hope you are prepping well for both a long-term disaster and Christmas. We finished up some pantry and closet storage projects you may recall me mentioning before.

Happy Thanksgiving, Pack! I hope you enjoyed a bountiful dinner and the loving company of family and friends. Approximately one minute after the Thanksgiving turkey is served each year the grandkiddos become allowed to sign Christmas songs.

In our politically correct society, this honored tradition of sitting down to a massive family meal and giving thanks for all of our many blessings, will surely bring about controversy again this year. The liberal talking heads on television will be bickering about Christopher Columbus, the pilgrims, and Native Americans as the…

Hello, Pack. We have had the usual Ohio weather this week, rain followed by winter weather, and then in what seemed like just a few hours later we actually got a taste of fall temperatures. We have been doing mostly indoor preps this week, other than tending to the livestock. We worked on some inventory lists and built a few…
