Okay, that title is a lie. This post is about sealing up your SHTF food buckets the Frugal Squirrel way. Since I’ve been on a food grade bucket kick, I figured I’d follow up on the Screw Mountain House #10 Cans post with these few informative videos on how to seal up your grub in those buckets and mylar bags. The most expensive piece of equipment in these videos is the food saver, heat sealing, thingy-ma-bob. I thought this was required until I read some of your comments on the previous post that said you folks just use a regular old clothes iron and a board to seal ’em up. That makes total sense.
Take a note that the coming posts will be sporadic at best. The Mrs. has been picking up a couple extra shifts here and there, further limiting an already limited schedule for stuff like SHTFblog. Then next month kicks off deer season in Maine, and there’s no way I’m going to miss some of that action, and then it’s Thanksgiving mayhem, quickly followed by the mad Christmas rush where everybody and their brother is holding Christmas parties, at work, at friends’ houses, spending time with family, yada yada yada. Combine all of this with another web project I’ve been tinkering with, and my own need to focus less energy on encouraging others to prep and more energy on securing my own preps.
Unfortunately, I just can’t do it all. As always, you can sign up for e-mail updates or subscribe via RSS if you want to get posts without having to check the blog. Or check back when you like, or just say, “Screw you, Ranger Man” and flip me the bird – lol – whatever. It’s a free country. Of course, previous attempts at an extended blog break have never lasted that long, so you never know. But for now, I gotta run. Ta ta!

“None Given” writes to me:
I am considering a Ford Explorer, a good TEOTWAWKI vehicle. BUT it comes with Microsoft “Sync”, which touts, among other things, that it will automatically call 911 in the event of an airbag deployment. Good for some, too Big Brother for me, can you put this out to the masses so I may get hints on how to DISCONNECT this?
Ayuh, can anyone help a brother out?
