It’s been a while since I have taken the time to put up a quiz, at least since last fall. Have fun racking your brain coming up with answers for the following questions. Let me know if you get them all correct!
Prepper-Resources.com Quiz #3
1. One Troy ounce = _____ ounces.
2. Name 2 plants that can be sown indoors during this month (March), prior to moving them to an outdoor garden.

Bonus. Something is wrong with your furnace and you need to call a repairman. There is only one problem, all of your Preps are in the basement and you are worried about tipping off the repairman as to your motives. There is simply too much stuff in your basement to move out and you need to get your furnace fixed. What should you do?
1. 1.09714286 ounces
2. Several answers: Broccoli, Cabbage, Eggplants, Lettuce
3. 10 to 15
4. Surface water is somehow entering the well.
6. 30 to 40 yards from your tent, you don’t want animals sniffing around.
7. 3 degrees.
9. 1250 Calories.
Bonus Answer: You might be thinking that you should cover everything with sheets, but that would be even more suspicious. I would definitely remove/secure any weapons or loose ammunition but for the most part just leave everything as is. Go down there with the repairman if it makes you feel better and if he asks you about the supplies (he probably won’t) just be honest about it but shrug it off as no big deal. “Yea man, you know how it is. My wife is crazy so she has me preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse.” Most likely he won’t even care what you have down there, remember this is a guy who goes to multiple homes every day and has no doubt seen quite a few strange things. If you are worried about the furnace repairman taking notes on what homes to come back and loot should T-SHTF, you’d better believe the UPS and FEDEX people who delivered all that stuff have you marked on their hit list as well.
