I normally Fly Alaska Airlines, the putative successor to Hughes Air Late (Air West) of yeasteryear - which is a way of saying being stuck in Seattle is an all too common 'experience'.

Re: Mass Blackouts in California

More to the point of this board - 100s of thousands have been forced to evacuate - and many of the hotels used in the past for temporary refuge are behind the 'red (evacuation) line.'

They burned food stocks, farms, shot non-combatants and killed and or "confiscated" animals. The civiluan non-combatants left alive were simply left with the choice of ...

Re: Adventures in rice, beans and bulk dry milk storage

James does a lot of open fire cooking and with few kitchen 'tools'. All of which should be studied by preppers, campers, Scouts and anyone else that cooks 'outdoors'.

The 'cooking kettle' (Dutch oven) cooking episodes are of interest to me.
