Found this one but that is blooming expensive to me. It works with the existing pump though so I may have to give it a little more thought.

Need a well solution

I just had to replace the pump on our well and it got me thinking:

We have a 4" well approx. 100' deep. What can I do other than a bucket and a string, to draw water up that far. I don't want to rely on a generator or any other electrical source.

Ideas?

And with all we had leftover from the last experiment I believe we have enough supplies in the house to last around 2 months if we had to and mu...

Re: One month no shopping

Sweet this is our last day and while I wish we could have avoided the one shopping trip, I think we did ok. I would say the things we missed the most would be milk and bread, easily. Ms. Heartless made a few loaves of potato bread that was delicious and extended our supply (3 loaves from the store) ...

Re: One month no shopping

Sorry guys it's been pretty busy around here. Ok, first time in the grocery was Monday, we needed milk and we cheated a bit and picked up some garlic bread for spaghetti and meatballs. ( And yes we should have made it instead.) But no huge changes to the menu and nothing we really miss yet. I think ...

One month no shopping

We hopefully made our only store run for the next 30 days last night. We did a bit of planning and we're going to try and stay away from the grocery store until then. 1. To see what we come up short on 2. To see what we will miss the most if we do and, 3. Just to see if we can. I'll try to update ho...

Re: First test of National Alert System

From what I understand of the homeland security site, it is desugned to overide all t.v. and radio communications. If there were "discrection" designed into it that would defeat the purpose.

Re: What Did You Do Today To Prepare?

Ran 7.6 miles in 1HR 16 min. I had planned on doing just the 3 mile race portion of the West TN Patriot run but I got to the turn around and decided to go a little farther. My knees hate me this is the longest run I've done since '08, but I had to know if I could do it.

Stay away from PARA Ord.

About 2 years I dropped about $1000 on a Para Ordanance SlimHawg .45. It had a great feel to it and was a great shooting light, compact, EDC weapon. They also have a lifetime garuntee and will replace any defective parts as long as you are the original owner. Next week I'm sending it back to Para fo...
