My name is Bryan. I am one of the 3 B’s. The three B’s are as follows: Bryan, Brian, and then there’s the other Bryan. I tell you that so you don’t get us confused. We are all beekeepers. If you were to tell any one of us a few years ago that we would be beekeepers, we all would have told you that you were stone cold crazy! Yet here we all are keeping honeybees…..and loving it!!! So…what happened? Continue reading “To Bee or not to Bee?”
First-Aid Kits are kind of a funny prepper item – there are SO many that you can just go buy that it doesn’t seem like a big deal. Yet, countless people I know barely have a box of band-aids in their home. Those who do go purchase a pre-made First-Aid Kit don’t typically pay much attention to it – it’s crossed of their ‘list’. But day to day use of the only medical supplies in the house means that after a year or so the First-Aid Kit is severely depleted and nobody notices until there’s a need for it.
Kit Camp is definately a work in progress, an idea in active exploration. We’ve never done this before and don’t know of a precedence to go off of so we’re kind of making it up as we go. :) If you missed the earlier post about it and don’t know what I’m talking about, the original Kit Camp post is here.
Just received this. Please note that the Technician Class license is the entry level HAM Radio license. It does NOT require Morse Code, and is very easy to obtain. If you are interested in becoming a HAM Radio operator, plan on attending.
Please e-mail [email protected] if you will be attending. Also let me know if you will be bringing a laptop.
I must limit the size to 40 people so sign up early to reserve a spot. If you must cancel please let me know immediately so I can free up a slot for someone else.

Preparedness Items will be there for demonstration also. This is a night to help you feel more confident in what you will have in your food storage in case of emergency. Recipes available and you can use these foods in your everyday cooking…they’re that GOOD! If you can’t make it on the 5th you can still group order. Pick up your food storage order form at the Salem city office building. Order forms and money will be due on the following Thursday Feb. 12th at the Salem city building.

Attention, preppers! We’ve been given the opportunity to organize a group buy on the Volcano II Stove I wrote a review about a couple days ago. Now is your chance to get one for a great price.
To make things easy, we’re going to focus on offering only one of their products: The Volcano II Stove with propane attachment. This kit sells for $150 on the website; with the group buy, you’ll be able to grab one for just $108 (before tax)!
Be prepared to grow large crops of delicious fruits and vegetables in your own garden. In this six week (2 hrs. a wk.) course you will learn all the basic principles and practical gardening methods which make home gardening easy, enjoyable and productive: including varieties, planning, planting, soils, mulching, tilling, control of weeds, insects, and other pests, climate, watering, fertilizing, pruning, and fruit tree culture. You will come away with a “green thumb”.
The instructor, Gordon Wells, is the author of Successful Home Gardening, the 120 page textbook, which is free to all students. He has a Masters Degree in Agriculture from University of California, Davis and has taught home gardening for many years. (For questions about this class call 423-2655.)
In need of some pasta for your food storage? There is a massive sale going on right now in Lehi. Inside a not-yet-opened restaurant near Hutch’s Furniture (95 W. Main Street), an individual is selling to the public boxes of pasta he has acquired in a bulk sale.
Here’s the scoop: all types of pasta are 75 cents per pound. (Contrasted to average bulk prices of $1.50 to $3.00 per pound, depending on the type of pasta). If you buy 10 or more boxes (boxes are between 20-40 pounds), it goes down to 65 cents per pound.

The Technician license is the entry level license for getting started in HAM radio. The Amateur Radio Club of Utah Valley often presents one day courses followed by a test to obtain your Technician class license. They have just announced a three day class and another one day class in the Pleasant Grove area. I obtained my license about three years ago. It really is easy!
