Been stocking TP and babywipes too. Actually it's almost too much to list.

I still need a good quality bolt cutters.

Wife and I have been stocking up things for a few years now. I think we will have enough to barter with if the time comes. One thing we have an abundance of is canning supplies. Think a bunch of Mason jars and lids will be worth anything ?
Of course I do have a goodly supply of Kentucky Sour Mash Whiskey hidden deep in my pantry too. If I can't barter with you, I will get you drunk and then take what I need. LOL
(just kidding about taking it from you.)

you know, being born and raised in So. Cali. until I joined the service at 18 and left. I never really though of stuff like this.

I used think talk like this was only for the mental gun nuts that need to be locked away never to be seen again. good ridiance.

Now 41 and living in today's times I have to say s... sooo...sorrrr... sorry. This kind thread and kind of talk has finally hit home with me. It's as clear as glass to me now.

I have an urge to go out and buy enough "stuff" to make up for the years I have laughed at this kind of talk.

I know sometimes we (I) might troll or give someone a hard time, but in all serious, I have you all to thank for helping me see the light. Ammo, blankets, seeds, basic stuff, I can't believe ISHTF how totally unprepared I would be to help me and my wife. No kids.

Now before I go back to being a anti-hunting, anti 1911, pro Glock, sweet guy that I am.

Thank you.

I haven't seen this any where else but any one know how to sow or patch their jeans/pants or shirts? That could be useful and used as trade. I also thought that maybe items such as holsters slings spare pants clothes etc.. magazines also and I beloved that some ppl should form a group with local ppl with the same ideas

and razor blades , shaving cream , finger nail clippers just small stuff

Keep out of reach of drunks and children; i had a buddy who got mad and cut the neighbors' HOT power line with MY bolt cutters. Idiots have crazy good luck.

Bolt cutters are the ultimate master key.

Were your bolt cutters lucky or did they melt a little bit?

Default What is Currency you ask?

going way back to the very old times they had to play fair, a even trade of equal value, you dig a ditch for a fella he reimburses you for your time and labor, currency soon came about because you could digg all the trenches in the world but it wouldent do you any good having that guy just owe ya, you wanted a universal barter item (cash) since you spent all your time digging that ditch you couldent tend to your own life needs you want milk or produce you needed to bring somthing to trade of equal value as that milk and eggs.
one very good barter item is skills and not everybody can do all things well, the bootmaker, blacksmith/metal worker, carpenters, coopers, dairy workers (butter and cheese) and so forth and such, once cash evaporates you have to have a markitable skill,

investing in perishable goods- they eventually dwindle, get fetterd away or can be stolen or lost in a fire, skills are what no man can take away.
learn a couple good life skills and practice them.
