The love from a good dog is priceless and from what you have with Andi is well loved and taken care of. I think Andi would lay her life to protect you. :)

I have no doubts about that and visa versa! Screwing with my dog would be a huge mistake.

I believe you are Derrill, she is a great pooch.  Yup, don't mess with our pooches.  :)

I've said this for how long ,  stock up on things, doesn't really matter what it is as long it's something people have to have,  use it for trade and barter if you have to when it hits the fan.  you don't have to go insane on the amounts of the stuff you stock up on just enough you think you will need in bad times.  This is where farmers really have an advantage.

Won't farmers need fuel, seed and fertilzer? If it really hits the fan, I see taking what was looted from the looters as my plan.   I can wear only so many Air Jordans though! ;D

My overhead fuel storage is how I plan to survive.It will be bait for jokers that need fuel.They will bring me a truck,guns,ammo,all kinds of items right to my trap.Then I can rob them.Have bins full of seed and you don't need fertilizer every year if you've been keeping a base,for a long time,you can skip a year on fertilizer easily.

LOL! I'll be able to trade the drugs I take from the looters for almost anything!

All kidding aside ,  I have friends that up until recently just before one died used draft horses to  plow fields  , grade roads,  you ever seen a horse or ox drawn road grader ?  darn things work just takes longer.  They pull trailers mostly using big old  Percheron's.  Their livestock and fowl make plenty of fertilizer ,  these folks grow plenty of feed, plenty of food and it's not because they have to use the old ways,  it's because they like to.  Their water wells are pretty high volume, we have year round springs in the area and if you were willing to work you can build cisterns, water catchments,  drill or dig  a ground water well, build a wind mill.  The only thing you really need is water, some type of shelter and a means to either grow or hunt for food  and the ability for defense to survive.  Bartering and old school the way the old timers did things is a good thing,  learn how to can and preserve food.   look at the way we are going today it's a throw away world, can't fix it just buy a new one.  I look at what my folks did during the depression  they used everything ,  they ate everything, animal parts that most people wouldn't eat today,   they grew what they needed and more, they raised all sorts of livestock and chickens,  they fed other people,  they used horse drawn combines and they did pretty good for what they had.

When I lived near Annapolis Md. we had some acreage, I was  growning a bunch of fruit and veggies that we were freezing and canning. What grows in the sand here is pretty seasonal. Some things that will grow here get destroyed in the downpours like right now or in the sun. If my planted mango trees will grow,they will provide some shade making veggies having a chance.
