    Just what do y'all normally discuss in this "emergency preparedness" forum?
    Someone asked for this formum years ago. Maybe it was you.

    I’m not a prepper and I don’t have much interest in stocking up on things.

    I’m not sure what the current concern is about supply chain issues. Does that have to do with the possible railroad strike?

    Yes, it was about the possible RR strike. Which I think isn’t going to happen now after what I just heard on the news.

    The island I live on is subject to constant supply chain issues. I was visiting here ~25 years ago, about the time I joined this forum, when the main ferry dock was destroyed by a ferry crashing into it, and there was no ferry service for 5-6 weeks.

    One of the reasons I simply stayed and moved here (other than being stuck) was seeing how well the community adapted to the problem, improvised solutions, and relied on local resiliency. I figured this would be good folks to live amongst.

    I have not been proven wrong.

    I hear a condom shortage is plaguing the sex industry, due to supply chain issues. I have no idea if that's true.

    I have only noticed that female condoms are in short supply, with inflated prices. High quality non-latex male condoms seem quite available and not inflated.

    Don't let that get out; frantic sex workers will swarm your island.

    It's the slow season, alas.

    You don’t clean your cpap with distilled water. You put it in the humidifier because with regular water you can grow mold. You clean it with a combination of water and vinegar.

    Should have mentioned in original post,
    I'm stocking up as hedge against inflation as well as supply chain issues. So, I view it as a can't lose financial decision, since I will eventually consume many of my purchases anyway.
    A local closeout store had purchased 72 trailer loads from a Sam's Club that closed. Prices were 40% off Sam's original price.
    Also been getting cardboard from work to use as ground cover over expanding garden area.

    I don't have a problem finding cardboard, but that is my favorite way of expanding my gardens. So much easier than tilling. Before the winter, I laid down another area of my pathway with cardboard, compost, leaves and topsoil. Should be ready by spring planting.
