Re: Emergency Radio failed me during storm. Need suggestions

Like anything else though, some times we get lucky and sometimes we get lemons. Good luck with your next purch...

The Shameless Plug

I havn't been on ZS for awhile (few weeks) but wanted to give another shout out to the few Ar. members here. Since being a member of ZS I've started small steps of getting "prepped", like setting up a BOB and small kits for the car and whatnot. A larger step I took a couple months ago was taking the...

Re: Long term storage - Booze

Maker's Mark Whiskey uses wax (I think it's wax) to seal in the freshness. you could either buy Maker's Mark Whiskey, or use the wax sealing method on whatever you do buy. That's a really good idea, actually - and i think it is wax of some sort that they use on their bottles. <snip> Still, I would ...

You also might consider buying the airplane sized bottles. Trade for a can or two of soup, a few rolls of TP or a mag of ammo. Kinda like the post SHTF dollar bill. Now I have seen those dry up (unopened) after a very long time of attic storage :gonk: Probably the plastic. How long was the attic st...

Re: Long term storage - Booze

I would stay away from all liqueurs because of the flavorings, creams, sugars, added colors and whatnot may not hold as long during storage and would prolly taste like crap if not make you sick. Hard liquors on the other hand would store for a very very long time in glass bottles in a cool dry place...

Re: Guy at the door says he's "looking for gas" with no gas

I'm not saying the guy wasn't shady......But how many people that do run out of gas have a "gas can" in their vehicle? Probably not very many. And that's probably why most gas stations (atleast in my AO) sell gas cans. ^^^This really is a good point :) Notifying the law is always a good thing (just...
