Off Grid Home Forums Technical Discussion Freeze drying food Re: Freeze drying food


Emergency survival and simply being self sufficient are two very different life styles and involve very different approaches.

Surviving a global catastrophy as in WTSHTF involves a very different approach from living off-grid 50 miles from a good sized tow with box stores etc.

In the latter case when I brreak a bolt I get out the tap and die set becaause the fuel burn to get another one from the store cost $25.

In the former situation replacing a broken bolt may involve knowing how to forge something from scrounged scrap metal – assuming I can find something other scroungers had not already got to.

If I know I could go to town and get a jerry can of fuel means I bring a chain saw but if everthing was in chaos I might be better off with an Axe.
