Message from JesseJames in MacGuyver - Skills & Academics #buy-it-for-life
I have My Patriot Supply (purchased from InfoWars). Augason Farms is cheaper.
You're probably paying more for the brand
"Augason FDA Approved Industrial Nutrition Slop"
You're probably paying for food that isn't disgusting, as well
No, I'm talking about the Alex Jones shit
There's no reason why Infowars food would be particularly good quality
I think Auguson is available through Walmart as well
@Jacob if comparing Alex to others that are freeze dried, per calorie it's pretty good and not slop, just better packaged cheap stuff.
Augason, and many others, rely on beans a great deal, which is good, but not what I'd prefer in a meal, pound for pound, it isn't my preference. Have ordered Alex stuff and it's not garbage. Have eaten it as an alternative to groceries when unemployed for 6 months. No matter what you get, food storage is a great emergency investment.
This forklift. This thing is crazy reliable! Every time I drive it I think, "there's no way something this old works this good".
Do you ever worry about breathing in random chemicals?
Nah. The tote I'm filling is just water and before that it was seed oil, but I'm mostly just amazed by this forklift. I'm moving 250 gal water totes over muddy ground and this thing just doesn't care.
In case anyone is wondering what we use seed oil for it goes in our sprayers to help with crop absorption and prevent evaporation loss of other chemicals. The medical treatment for accidental consumption is to drink 2 large glasses of water.
@Der Seeteufel - SD what brand is that forklift? How old is it? Just curious.
Case and I think it's a 62 or 63.
That's sweet. We used to have this old Case tractor that was a 70s model, it was a beast. We also had a Ford that was a 70s model too both were great. But they didn't take the abuse you put on a tractor. Most tobacco is done by hand, so besides plowing they were just used to pull wagons.
They really don't make things like they used too. I was headed down to the Perryville battlefield on Saturday and I saw more than 1 really old tractors still being used to tend fields. It was a beautiful thing.
Looking for a new garden hose and hose reel. In searching for a reel I came across this site: https://www.eleyhosereels.com/collections/garden-hose-reels/products/free-standing-garden-hose-reel
Any recommendations? Does this look unusually expensive, or just the white price?
@Ben - OH For your consideration: https://thewirecutter.com/reviews/the-best-garden-hose/
@Ben - OH after having one of these I won’t go back to a regular hose. https://get.expandablehoses.com/expandable-hoses-1/?cmp_id=1510653570&adg_id=61834864207&kwd=%2Bexpanding%20%2Bhose&device=m&gclid=CjwKCAjw8O7bBRB0EiwAfbrThwzJJmR6KuN39N2V5GCxCcMA1GthLBxrk4U06bl3Ko_-q4iueKucqhoCxzkQAvD_BwE
I had a lower quality one for a few years and broke it. So I found that one and I’ve had it for about a year it is really good quality.
Cool, does it work well with a reel?
I’m sure. I just put mine in my car wash bucket never gets tangled or anything.
I am sure you could wrap it around a reel just fine
@Matthias I've seen this same basic thing in walmart that say they float in water made by piranha (I can't spell it)
If anyone wanted those for emergency supply
@Tanner - SC or anyone else...if you work for a retailer...there are ways to get huge discounts on mountain house. There is an app you can be invited to called ExpertVoice
You tell them what your interested in and you get a profile of companies that give you discounts when you learn about their products, and take a little test...most items are at cost or close to it, and they change from time to time, but MH has been on there as long as I've been on it.
The catch is that you have to ship everything to work. We don't even sell half the brands that honor us with deals, they like that people who are involved in using their stuff are evangelists for them.
@Freiheit - CA do you know if the brands can limit how much they send or choose geographic regions? Basically If I sign up do I have to send 100,000 samples out?
No... you buy what you want. It's not a job... I like company XYZ, I study company XYZ's stuff, take a test to prove I know about XYZ stuff, get awarded with a discount code to use. Can't share the codes or "order for friends and family" but you can basically get a bunch of stuff that you want to go camping or whatever whenever you want. @Prestor John
You have to work in retail at some level and they limit how many users are in each area.
I got the Aquatuff hose at the recommendation of @JesseJames , and in doing so I got a 20% off coupon code for anyone who's interested: THANKS20
Included note: "Have a friend who might need a hose? Feel free to give them the code."
Also if anyone likes Oakleys I get a discount for being military gladly get u whatever u want at the discounted price
