RAINBOW FAMILY GATHERINGS: Unofficial Community for Rainbow Family
Those of you who know me, know I am a true believer in the Mayan and Hopi Prophicies and that 2012 will be a time of hard change for all. Not the end of the world, but a time of socio-economic change that will have major impact on all of us an most of it in a not very fun way.... All ya have to do is take a look at the idiots in DC and other govt's world wide screwing up as fast as they can to see the horrific changes coming.
I am also a believer that we need to be self reliant and prepared for the worst.
One of the issues that is probably going to affect us all in a major way right off the bat, is a huge increase in prices and lack of availability in food. When the mega corps no longer grow and it is too expensive to ship food, the first losers are us...hence my first preperation....have your chow stashed.
A basic food stash will keep many of us alive when the chips are down, and BASICS if bought right now, will not put ya in the poor house. Something o consider, dried rice and dried beans (Carbo's and Protien) are currently cheap, store easy and last. They are also the basics of nutrition. Not the whole deal by any means but basic...as in will keep yer butt alive. If you figure 2 oz dry of each, per day, pr person (including kids and babies as they will not be small forever...) figure a 50 LB bag of each/ per person to be aprox a years supply of basic survival rations. Obviously any other stashed food is a help, be it dried, canned etc. Those of you like me, omnivore, may want to consider hunting as as option as well.
Another survival tactic, stash seeds. Any and all edible plants that you can put away seeds for will pay huge benefits in the long run. Store them in an air tight dry container. One note, if you can , get seeds that are NOT hybrids...try for old time or "heirloom" seeds. That is the kind that you can take the seeds from grown plants/ veg/ fruit and plant it. Hybrids rarely if ever have fertile seeds so they will not produce fruit in most cases.
Any commentary? Rants? Ideas? Please feel free to share
