Loa Anderson helped make it. This is my son David as the DEMO DOLL"
Either 6 people can take the straps and carry an injured person or you can put two poles
between the handles and 2 people can carry it. Folds up into a nice little bag.
Made out of Nylon fabric and Nylon bag handles for the straps.
Local Specials You May
Eventually we will get to a whole month of providing information on meat preservation. For now, I am making progress on learning how.
I have learned how to make Jerky (which will keep a couple of years if vacuum packed). We made this first batch because my wife and I wanted to see how long you could actually store it. This batch lasted us about 2 weeks. (Well it was so good we could not stop eating it until it was all gone. It was thin sliced flank stake soaked in my special marinade sauce.... YUM!!!)
and now I have even a smoked whole turkey (notice the thermometer in the turkey so we knew when the inside had reached the right temprature.
After we have learned more about smoking meat and other things like preserving it with salt, we will have a whole month featuring it so you can share in the information we have learned. For now, this is just a couple of snapshots to show you we are making progress and give you a indication of things to come.
JOINING THE CO-OP
From time to time you will receive news letters or other Emergency Preparedness and Food Storage information related to or outlining what we are buying at the present time. (That information will also always be posted here on this web page.) We will also try to include some educational information about food storage in the emails you will receive.
There will also be a lot of other Emergency Preparedness information on our web page at:

PENINSULA EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS COMMITTEE
(NOTE: You will have to type these email addresses into your email program and not just click on them here. This is just a picture of their email address so COMPUTER JUNK MAIL ROBOTS can not scan this web page and put them on their junk email mailing lists.)
At the present time anything you order through the PES-C committee you need to just order it yourself and go pick it up your self.
BUYING AND SHIPPING INFO
If the vendors we buy from charge the state sales tax or out of state use tax, we pass that tax charge on to you.
We do not endorse any company or commercial outlet.
We may or may not order something every month. We know that not every one will want to buy every item every time. That is not a requirement to belong to the co-op. You can buy as much or as little as you want. But if the item comes in a certain size, (i.e. 25 pound sack of rice) normally we will not break that unit down into smaller quantities for individuals. If you have items that you would like to suggest we purchase in bulk so you can buy them with us cheaper, lease email your suggestion to us.
We search the prices and quality of all stores and Internet outlets and try to choose the best price and highest quality for our co-op members.
NOTE: We reserve the right to return your payment for any order without delivery if for any reason, including circumstances where we either are not able to get the goods we ordered in bulk, they have not been delivered to us in a timely manner, if the distributor changes the price between the time you give us the money and we actually place the order, or we have not received payment in full from you before we place the order with the distributor. Payment and delivery of all orders will be coordinated the co-op coordinator.
The main places we are buying from right now are :
www.6lights.com (Fruit Farmers)
Honeyville Food Products
