Re: Do you have Body Armor?

You don't need my permission to justify buying body armor. It has its purpose, and yes training with it is a good idea.

I just can't think of many scenarios where a civilian would have enough time/foresight to put on their body armor before needing it.

Re: RVs

Don't buy an RV. It is usually cheaper to stay in motels, if you take the payments and divided them by the number of vacation days people actually use their RV $600 per month payment x 12 months = $7,200 per year 3 weeks vacation per year /$7,200 = $342 per night to spend on a room. This does not in...

Re: Do you have Body Armor?

[Black November being Hypocritical] I don't think that body armor is a good investment, unless you plan on wearing it everyday for work or other. Having it in your closet just-in-case the SHTF is stupid and a waste of money. That being said I own body armor, and it just sits in my closet.

Re: WWYB? - $1000 for guns

An inexpensive reliable handgun like a Glock, a holster, and the rest on ammo.

Re: Homestead land in the WA Okanogan

We recently graveled the entry road to our property. In total is there was 6 gravel trucks with approximately 13 yards each. Just to give you an idea of the numbers. Also some lessons learned: Clearing: Surveying and flagging takes a long time. It took me 4 months to flag the outside edge of a 1/2 m...

Re: Homestead land in the WA Okanogan

I forgot my most important advice. It easy easy to get overwhelmed. Focus on one job at a time other wise you will have dozens of half completed projects that never get done. Also I take one weekend a month off to just enjoy the property. I already have a day job, I don't want the property to become...

Re: Homestead land in the WA Okanogan

Instead of a WOM, consider just getting a Berkey water filter, and going not potable for bathing, dishes and laundry. It is much simpler to filter the water you drink and leave everything else as is. Here is a simple sink design I can up with http://thesurvivalpodcast.com/forum/index.php?topic=57983...

Re: Moving forward with homestead land search (with pics)

Don't get too attached to the land until you actually close on it. 3 years back I thought I found the perfect place but it didn't work out. I was crushed. It took me a long time to get over it, but eventually we found another property and closed on it last year. There are always other properties out...

Re: Moving forward with homestead land search (with pics)

I would definitely enjoy getting your permaculture thoughts on the property if I get it. Yes the bowl shape might be a good asset for the property. There looks like usable slopes facing almost each direction making many micro climates. The first thing that struck me is the huge south facing slope. ...

Re: Best deal on water containers?

Scepter 2.5 gallon MWC in Blue. Expensive but worth it. (They have a temporary new plastic smell until you rinse them out a few times and let them air dry)
