World Endy

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Friday, November 9, 2012 in Open Thread

I don’t much care for TV fare nowadays, but I have heard that there is a show about people preparing for the end of the world. As ridiculous as some people think that is, I happen to think that there is no such thing as being over-prepared!!

I don’t care if you are preparing dinner, or getting ready to prove the Mayans were right.

Anyway, Hubby and I were discussing several scenarios which may or may not play out in the *ahem* next four years. One thing I have heard a lot about is bartering. Frankly, that is something everyone should be prepared to do anyway. When I was in college, we got the chance to visit El Banco de Cobre in Mexico. Trust me: they were far more willing to barter in that area than to take American money. And that was back in the 80′s. I traded my extra pair of shoes for a horse blanket. No, I have never owned a horse, but those things are warm and it got cold in that area.

So, what end-of-the-world preparations are y’all making? Any skills that y’all have to barter with? I can raise pigs and know how to stuck them and roast them whole. Also, I can pick coffee beans, and prepare them for roasting. I think we are set ;)
