Thanks for SurvivalBlog. They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but this old dog learned the following new tricks from the SurvivalBlog articles and letters.
1. I got fired up after reading the “commo comments” and finally got my Ham radio license.
2. I bought a number of galvanized trash cans and that’s where I now store shelled corn, etc. (Hint! Don’t buy the made-in-China-from-tinfoil cans. [Instead,] get the good ones which are made right here at home.)
3. As a coffee drinker, I now stockpile green coffee beans, which I vacuum pack and store in those galvanized trash cans.)
I could go on, but just those three items more than justify my dime-a-day contribution.
I still live a stone’s throw from the Yellowstone caldera, but I’ve also learned that we can’t eliminate all risks. Some we just have to live with. Stay warm, – Dutch in Wyoming
