Then there is this: A year or so ago my wife and I were in a mjr grocery store waiting in line to check out with a full cartload. Over the speakers came this message..."attention XYZ customers, the electronic payment system is down, no electronic transactions will be processed until the system is fixed.."*

People began griping and scrambling. We two 'seasoned citizens' were in line and we always pay in cash. I asked the cashier.."ma'am, I have CASH, and correct change....may we go on and check out?" She replied "Yes you can check out now".
One other older couple had cash and the 4 of us got all our food and went on our way. The rest of the 'shoppers' were walking out empty handed, griping and complaining and giving us nasty looks. Simple lesson for when things get sticky and the grid goes down. ...we always try to pay with cash.
Same reasons we wud never have an electric vehicle.
You live and think as we do .No bit coins or whatever else they come up with .
During our big Earthquake in 1994 because the electrical grid went down . You could get anything you needed if you had cash . If you didn’t you were out of luck . Gas stations , everything had no power . At the stores with no lights ,they stood at doorway and you told them what you wanted and they got it for you and you paid in cash . If you didn’t have the correct change you did lose your change but you still got whatever you needed . Taught us to be prepared number 1 Cash , 2 water , 3 any food that wouldn’t go bad from no refrigeration and you used your camping equipment to cook on . Reason we always have a RV too because the house was trashed and unliveable . But we had everything we needed . We lived in our driveway in the RV for 6 mo . We were very lucky .
But we love cash and will continue too . Pat

How did we get from trash talk to cash talk on this thread? Paper money is only paper, mere cellulose. Have your needed goods in supply, for some spell. And with the news today, stock up, maybe.

Interesting the talk of ditching plastic bags in favour of paper. Plastic bags were invented to save the planet as they use very little energy to make.

We see a change of discussion when a thread has pretty much run it's course a lot. Kinda like when drinking cocktails sitting around the kitchen table discussing stuff.

I do have an earthquake kit. Don't have a nuclear holocaust kit.
I have more than $300 in $5 bills in a Ziplock, inside a waterproof Pelican case, along with rice and noodles, gravy mix. Have cans of ham, chicken, beans, pasta sauce. Have sugar, salt and pepper. Have coffee and filters. Have 120 litres of water. Have candles and batteries and radios. Have a generator and Aspen fuel.

Have a trailer with stove, fridge and propane.
You might think I'm looking forward to an earthquake.
Well, maybe a small one...

What's the benefit of Aspen fuel other then being clean, does it store longer?

Never heard of it myself, looked it up they sell an alkylate fuel which may be an expensive gimmick or works? Anyone else use it?

Ok let’s tie this together. Need to carry groceries , wood, tools, Motor oil in quart cans? Use a paper sack, cardboard box, canvas bag or sling, wooden box, plastic tub, binder twine whatever. Need to survive famine, keep garden seeds in a cool dry place, keep paper money, gold or silver bars. You’ll need water, stored or procurable. You’ll need fuel, gasoline, propane, wood, buffalo chips again whatever. Canned, dried, grindable grain for food. A way to procure whatever may be ‘on the hoof” in your area and a way to harvest it and then prepare for the table. Robins beware. Many of us live a totally “varied” life from eating at a restaurant that we drove to with a 300 hp car to cooking a rabbit caught in a cable snare or a fish on a set line and cooking that “catch” over a wood fire. It’s easy to get confused, complacent, satisfied, educated, and paranoid. Your course depends on you. Best of luck, see you in a comfortable campground in our Escape. Store some whiskey too. Keeps well

And carrying $500 worth of less destructible Loonies and Toonies in your jeans might cause your pants to come down around your ankles where you could not run from a robber or a dog
looking for a fire hydrant.

. A friend just returned from Denmark. It seems their society does not use cash. Credit card types only. I’m wondering what that country would do in a worst case event.

Cash use has drastically gone down here. It is mostly a few older folks that are most of the cash standouts now. It is rare to find many under 40 who have much for cash now. I now use very little myself. A $500 withdrawal can last months.

I'm told it stores for a couple years without additives. A friend put me on to it after cleaning the carb on my Honda, which was full of water from a bad fuel source.
