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.

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…

Only in Ohio could you go from wearing sleeveless clothing to cracking ice in a poultry waterer in such a rapid amount of time. One day this past week we had 60 degree weather, the next day we had temperatures below freezing. In…
