Learn about roasting coffee cherries (raw beans)!
R.C. Smith, a new member, has agreed to share his knowledge and experience on roasting coffee cherries (raw beans), grinding them and make some coffee unlike we've never tasted with the club! Take a minute or two and research (google) the nutritional value that is found in coffee that has been made within 2 weeks of roasting the raw beans. It really is incredible that something that a lot of us consume can be healthy if done a certain way. I'd also like everyone to bring their bug out/near/oh crap bags for display and conversation while we enjoy a cup or two of this kind of coffee. (It's also a good excuse to unpack and repack the bags) Depending on the date that will be set, there could also be a mushroom hunt in it! Maybe gather some of those Trout Lilly's we found last spring. And if the weather keeps up the way it's been going, we could find some Pheasant Back mushrooms and I'll cook them up for a taste treat... Whatever we decide as group given the time, the weather and such. Anyway ya cut it, I'll "be prepared".. ;) I'm throwing this up for response, so please, respond with date and time preferences, any ideas you may have. Hopefully we can have it at the Church, but need a date to schedule. oh, the cost will depend on the amount of members that agree to attend, to differ the cost that R.C. will incur for the coffee cherries (beans). I'll set it at $5 for now. I will also have the hot dog cart set up with chips and water to keep us from being too hungry! need feed back peoples

    What we're about

    People who have survival skills and anyone wanting to learn.

    My intention is to have a local group who will teach and help one another with their preps and survival needs and who can support one another during disasters or SHTF situations. I have found other groups but they are all an hour or more away. This might work for training but it doesn't work well for support when things go wrong.

    I have mechanical, electrical, woodworking and welding skills that I can teach others and use to help others who do not have those skills.

    Things I would like to learn are: Ammo reloading - Curing (Smoking/salting/drying) food for short and long term storage and Ham radio communication skills.

    Projects I am currently working on are: Building a 24 volt wind and solar electric system - Building wood gasifiers to run my generator and an old pickup truck.

    I am fairly confident that I can do these things on my own but I am always willing to hear other people's ideas and would love to let others work with me so they could learn and then we could could one for them next.

    It would also be great to develop a communications network so that in SHTF situations, we can respond to and help those in the greatest need.
