    Military Tips for Defending your Homestead

    may sound silly but ordered three different sized and sounded chimes for perimeter defense. each chime will be wired to a diff part of the house exterior covering areas that would allow access to my little property. trip-wired, if someone(s) sneaking up on us, he'll trip the wire and the specific chime will peel and reveal their presence. very inexpensive as I can't afford a real sophisticated alarm system. prep and pray, the end has arrived.

    Found a good sale on strawberries so I canned a bunch of jam. Did a lot of half pints to use as potential barter items if things get really bad.

    Have 3 extra-large first aid "kits" busting at the seams. I can't get anything more into them. I've started strapping extra pouches/bags to them but they're getting cumbersome.

    Btw stock up on anti-radiation medications ASAP. Especially if you have kids/grandkids. Better to have a thing than to need it.

    ETA: and freeze dried citrus items. FL citrus industry's utterly decimated. Not expected to recover for 2 years. Get it now while it's still affordable and available.
