Stop by Cracker Barrel when the SHTF

No problem.  I don't care much for strawberry so I can save all of that for bartering.  I may try to score some apple butter, grape jelly and blackberry jam for myself.

I will trade you for the Apple Butter. Need a good washboard?

The apple butter will be part of my personal stash.  You would probably have to throw in the small cider press and a couple of those triangle peg games to get me to part with any of it.

No. You can't make hooch with a peeler.

 

JAB, don't hold it against him. That kind of thinking is to be expected from someone who doesn't appreciate a nice tweed hunting jacket to keep him warm AND stylish when zombies are afoot.

I only like tweed when it is on guitar amps.

You don't need as cider press to make hooch. Though you could. I would just stop by the local plumbing supply for 2 water tanks, copper pipe, and fittings after my Cracker Barrel stop.

Not caring for strawberry is downright un-american, and shows a lack of appreciation for the finer things in life ...

and Cracker Barrel is my all-time favorite restaurant while traveling ...

When I traveled, I always stopped and got an Uncle Here's favorite. Great for dinner and I took enough biscuits for breakfast. Little things you find when you get a per diem. I brought home lots of extra cash that way.

Hey!  I still like apple pie, love barbecue and good chili (just about any variant) so I'm not completely un-American.  I just don't care for strawberry.  To be truthful, I even like fresh strawberries from time to time like in a good strawberry shortcake, a no-bake strawberry pie or a British style strawberry trifle.  I just don't like strawberry jelly/jam much and really don't like strawberry 'flavored' stuff.

Besides, it is kind of odd to say, "...finer things..." and "...Cracker Barrel..." in the same breath.  :hyper:

One of my fellows out here has two rolls of silver dimes expressly for soldering together a still, as he doesn't trust lead solder as far as he can throw it. For me, I'd have four, just in case.

A post shtf run of calvados? Sounds interesting. I'm trying to remember where to get brewer's yeast... Getting Fleischman's baker's yeast in them little red foil packs is easy-peasy, to be sure, but I can NOT, for the life of me, remember the brewer's yeast. 

Booze would make a great trade item, to be sure... and higher alcohol content would make an excellent disinfectant for wounds, among other uses.

Hadn't really thought about it till you mentioned it.  LOL usually I take note of things like that.

Shhhheeeeeet.  Y'all obsessing over the Crapper Barrel....  Me, I'm heading straight to Red Lobster for the fire-wood, rope, pulleys, buckets, crates, slat-traps, lanterns, boats & obviously.... the liquor cabinet.  Next stop will be Long John Silvers for the imperishables in the warming trays.

      Wrote a post on this tonight and thought I would share it and my back up math.
      http://leveledsurvival.com/2018/03/15/bugging-out-to-the-woods/
       
      Just to extrapolate since someone (not on TGO) said it was "not that bad", I did some math:
      Shtf and the population of Nashville TN (684,410) decides to spread out over 100 square miles. Let's say 50% make it and not count the previous population of those 100 square miles. That leaves 3,422 people per square mile. Even if that was virgin land, no way could it sustain them. Even at 1000 miles that is 342 per square mile. Tucon AZ at 50% over 1000 square miles is 265 per square mile. Upscale this to some place like New York City. 8.538 million people at 50% over 1000 square miles is 4269 people per square mile. It is a concern if you do the math. All those people that survive have to go somewhere.

      Everyone,
      After talking a bunch of time and thought I have decided to start a site devoted to Emergency Preparedness where I can lay out my method of planning I have been working on.  I call it "leveled survival". Sort of think DEFCON levels. The site is not another  "prepper" site, nor is it aimed at hardcore survivalists. It will include guns, but not center on them.
      I wanted to put together ideas that help people who know they want to prepare, but are intimidated by all the SHTF, B.O.B, TEOTWAWKI, and E.D.C. talk. I hope to explain some of that in terms that the single mom 2 doors down can digest. The levels refer to both levels of the disaster and the levels of financial commitment people can make. I try to suggest ways to fit this into your budget without being the "dollar store survivalist" type of talk. 
      To be honest some of this is selfish. I would rather help these people learn to plan now than either fight them off as a mob or watch them die around me if the worst happens. It would be better to have people that learn the mindset and prepare beforehand. Then they become potential trade partners, group members, or community contributors. They can help themselves whether it be a 100 year blizzard, flood, or full blown reset to the 1800s. 
      Here is my site: http://Leveledsurvival.com
      What I am asking from you guys in some feedback. It can be about any part of it. It is a work in progress. So please take a look and share your thoughts either in a reply or via PM. 
      Thanks.
      Ronald
