    Okay so apparently I was too late for the broadcast. I got out of school late. What exactly did I miss? How can I listen to the show again?

    Obviously, I am the dork and either got the time wrong--help, someone read it, or misunderstood the notice.

    Well, that was interesting about survival groups, what parts I listened to..

    learned if someone comes to the group with no share of food, supplies, if they have no skill or trade, then boot them out...:wave:

    And if every cocoapuffer goes to the woods with their weapon to get a deer, rabbit or whatever, they will scare away the animals and noone will get dinner..seems sensible.

    I listened a little at the beginning. Kurt Wilson talked about what's going on with powdered eggs for LTS. You may have noticed that Honeyville doesn't have any available, and anyone who sells Honeyville can't get them, either.

    In a nutshell, last (November? not sure) Honeyville became back-ordered on all their eggs, and told their distributors it would be about three weeks before they were up and running with them. No problem. But when it came to more than three weeks, this Kurt called in, and got no good answers. He felt like he was getting a run around, and finally got his answer from Honeyville this week.

    It seems that the FDA has clamped down on #10 cans of eggs - not because there's anything wrong with the product, but because of how they're labeled. So Honeyville is trying to work with the FDA and jump through their hoops (fill out the right paperwork, check the right boxes, etc.), and the FDA keeps telling them 'we'll let you know what you need to do, we'll get back to you.'

    Finally, Honeyville is able to get a green light from the government to start shipping out #10 cans of eggs. They start up production again, fill up two entire tractor trailers and start to head out - only to be stopped at their own gate by the FDA telling them, nope, you can't sell these. They had to destroy all the product, and they're still waiting for word from the FDA.

    Kurt says there are 5 companies that make powdered eggs, and he contacts the other 4 - finds the same situation at each one. He's VERY upset about this. Here are several companies whose production has been halted, livelihoods tied up, and the FDA is screwing around with them. He says the government is killing us with regulation.

    About this time the hostess of the show started asking Kurt questions, like - what do you think is really going on? Do you really think the government is trying to keep people from getting powdered eggs? Kurt responded that he believes it's because of the protein, the government doesn't want us to be able to have the protein in our LTS. It's the #10 cans - they can store the eggs for a long shelf life. He says he can get 50 lb. bags of eggs, no problem, but the government won't let him (or anyone else) put them in #10 cans, slap a label on them, and sell them.

    And about this time I had family obligations and stopped listening, so that's all I know. :)

    There's a section on the website that allows you to listen to previously broadcasted shows. Tonight's show was available immediately after airing and I was able to listen to the first half of the show that I missed. If you click on the link again from the op it will play again.

    Not at all goshengirl! There might be people that don't have time to listen to the whole show at the moment, but a summary would be nice for them to read in the mean time.

    Does anyone have experience with storing eggs in mylar? At least we can still get bags of eggs.

    Even though he talked about the bags of eggs in his broadcast, I checked his site and didn't see any for sale (just the #10 cans, but they were listed as out of stock). Does anyone know who sells the bags?

    Emergency Preparedness still has eggs in the #10 cans. :)

    I had read a thread on another board (a hippy one, not a survivalist one) that people are having a harder time finding bulk supplies of peanut butter. This kind of goes along with the eggs, in that powdered eggs and peanut butter are one of only a few protein sources that have a really long shelf life. :eek:

    Thanks for typing all that Goshengirl! I was 15 minutes late and missed all the egg part. I have been planning on dehydrating my own eggs for a while now. I am just waiting for either my chickens to get back in full production or the Amish guys chickens. From the videos I have seen on dehydrating eggs 10 dozen eggs dehydrated and turned to powder fill a coffee can.

    Honeyville still had 50# bags of eggs in stock last night. Wonder about today though.

    47.5 lbs :)

    The bag is $320 - could possibly go into it with someone else and then mylar seal into smaller bags.
