1. We are sorrowed to report that one of the Founding Members has passed on. Dee (Righthand) is well remembered as contributing much to the operation of SurvivalMonkey, and is already greatly missed. Little lady, big person.

What are your Top 5 prep items you would like in a retail store?

    60 life straws or tatical flashlights won't be of much value to me when the SHTF, 60#10 cans of wheat is a different matter. That's why our little "pantry" will only sell food. We have the other stuff.

    Locally we have a few brick and mortar stores that sell a variety of natural foods and hard to get natural food items. We shop there as it is convenient. Plus, it is a lot easier to purchase certain items right now as compared to ordering online.

    No, IMO they won't be of much use. Tact-i-cool stuff has little use; at least in my opinion.
    The only use for high output flashlights we have is to see if the deer are eating corn before we let the Pitts out. The yard is fenced; however, the noise is horrendous.

    We have the other "stuff" also. I am blessed with a wife who sees matters the same as I do.

    Mine finally came around a year ago. She looks for stuff she thinks we will need and surprises me with it. Like it or not, need it or not, she gets a big thank you.

    Ditto and it is a good thing. It needs to be a team. We both contribute to almost everything and I take care of the "toys" and toy food departments.
    I involve her and she involves me. 2 Corinthians 6:14 applies more than to just unbelievers; n'est-ce pas?

    Tonight we went through next Spring's plantings.

    Great advice, I was thinking of something very similar; doing classes on the the weekends with different pieces of gear so people could get their hands on the merchandise and try it out before they buy.
