Why Water is Your Enemy -OR- Get A Food Dehydrator

Everyone says you need water. It’s true. You’ll die without water. You always hear you should be drinking 8 glasses of water a day. Without enough water, you just won’t be having any fun at all.

My First Attempt at Mylar bagging for 20+ year food storage

I hope that any prepper knows that food storage is pretty important, right?  Our current lifestyle as a whole means most of us only have a few days of food stored in our houses, maybe a week at best.  The same goes for grocery stores, funny enough.

I mean I’ve seen this kind of thing before, but I guess I just found out what it was called.  Anyways, Mylar is airtight and if you get as much air out of them as possible and include oxygen absorbers, you can have dried food last 20+ years.

Here are the do’s and don’ts of upgrading the Ruger 10/22 as I see it:
