That's an investment -- hopefully you waited for sales. Is the generator multi-fuel? Natural gas and/or others!?

Presume you got the .30-30 locally?

What's a "rusher" 10-22 before I have to look it up???

Rueger 10-22. My iPhone is so ballistically ignorant and politically correct.

Yes. Kmart was clearing out their rifle ammo at 60 per cent off.

A while back, I bought 500 shares of Sturm, Ruger and co.

Looking at buying some more ConAgra as well.

I reallocated all of assorted mutual fund dividends and capital gains into a gold fund for the foreseeable future.

Good call. I understand they're doing quite well of late, from the interwebs, that is.

What I have done lately, is think. And try to convince the wife. So far, other than guns and ammo, I have not made any preps. But, I have been considering fruit/nut trees. We have 11 VERY old, unproductive apple trees that are at the end of their lives. Sad, because old things are cool. They are a super pain, and we don't get anything useful from them. I'd like to remove them, and plant new fruit trees, and as many different nut trees as will grow in the NE. This would give you a sustainable source of food. I'd like to get on it ASAP, because it takes a while for these trees to start producing, and then more time to reach full productivity. But I have to convince the wife first.......

No... It's a "guy thing," taking care of the yard and farming. Just do it! Gut 'em. Get a buddy to grind or explode the stumps, and plant stuff to produce. Might have to start new trees in buckets now for next season or spend bucks buying 'em a few feet tall now...

Best time to plant a fruit tree is 20 years ago. Second best time is now.
