06/13/18 06:39 PM Folder for Opening Boxes by Jeanette_Isabelle

EMT shears continue to be my tool of choice. One task they are not suited for is opening boxes. What I want is a folder with a locking blade and is easy to open. It has to be small enough to feel comfortable in my pocket. It will have the mundane job of opening boxes. Therefore, it does not need to be a special edition or exotic.

I've done some homework on my own and considered this little puppy:

06/10/18 03:47 AM Freeze-dried in a big can by MoBOB

I am wondering about those freeze-dried survival foods that are in big cans. It says in the advertising that there are XX servings per can. Are those cans just filled with the product and you take it out like oatmeal; take what you need and put the lid back on? What happens to the product once it is exposed to air? A big loss of shelf life? It seems kinda silly to have loads of cans open.

In general, for in-place making do for an extended period of time (nebulous term), I would stick with canned good as much as possible.

Anyway, any help with this would help. Thank you.

06/08/18 11:35 AM Why Are We Preparing? by Jeanette_Isabelle

Comments in my previous thread have inspired me to write this one. I thought every person here is a prepper. If you are a prepper, why are you preparing? For example, if you live on the west coast of the United States, you may be prepping for a significant earthquake. At the very least I hope you are for those living in that area.
