Prep supplies - estate sale - near Richmond VA

Prep supplies - thread and pics here.

If you click on the link you'll see a thread buy a guy selling supplies from his father's estate. There's quite a selection. I bought some non-food items and can tell you the seller is a stand up guy.

"My father was completely prepped for the "big one" he expected this year. Then a few months ago he had a massive heart attack and died. He left lots of debt. He expected the economy to collapse this year and thus was buying supplies on credit and wasn't paying his bills.

I have more than enough supplies of my own so I don't want them. He had everything from generators, seed, grain grinder, camping supplies to emergency essentials food, 55 gallon drums, and bottles of propane.

I've been using the 55 gallon drums of gasoline to fuel my truck. I've taken about a ton of scrap metal to the recyclers. Given away as much cat food and as many mason jars as I can get anyone to take.

I am looking for a creative way to get rid of the (literally) tons of supplies without taking a bath on the cost, helping some people, and maybe even getting a tax write-off in the process. He literally spent thousands on emergency essentials foods. In addition to the debt the sheer wieght of supplies has crushed down one of the floors in his house about two inches. So, I have to repair his house also. "

Hmm, the ability to see the future, but not understand it. OR he knew the big one was coming, but didn't understand what the big one was.....

As sad as this is, I see it as a comment on the views of some of the prepers on this board who have been predicting the end since I have been on this board. You can not ignore the expected normal future in exchange for some Sci-Fi future.

I hope he gets enough money out of the estate to break even.
One day, I shall come back. Yes, I shall come back. Until then, there must be no regrets, no tears, no anxieties. Just go forward in all your beliefs and prove to me that I am not mistaken in mine.

Never cruel or cowardly.
Never give up. Never give in.

One of the best death's a survivalist could hope for - lived a life of preparedness and never needed it.

I'll be a happy camper if I live a long life and never need any of the stuff I've got put away.
