Ice fishing sshelter for long term camping

For folks that have been here a while, you've no doubt noticed I've posted a lot of threads/data on different shelters with a focus on store small/live big - like this: https://www.zombiehunters.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=113525&p=2552134&hilit=shelter#p2552134 Found an interesting UToob channel ...

Re: Living in a van, down by the river...

While this is a well know bit from SNL (youtube.com/watch?v=Xv2VIEY9-A8) it is, in reality, a choice many make today as a way of life. In high cost areas, most notably the bay area, it is the only way many can afford to live. and work locally. My own niece lived in a van for months with her SO in t...

Re: Living in a van, down by the river...

One site I would suggest is "RV Sue and her canine crew" (https://rvsueandcrew.net/)a very well done site by a retired school teacher that followed the weather for over 6 years in a 17 ft Casita tow-behind. She documented day to day life with a focus on free/cheap places to stay. Her perspective is...

In addition to the flu vaccine, consider getting ones for pneumonia. This is a silent killer for both young and old alike.

Re: Stay in city or attempt the wilderness?

Modern cites and 'newer' houses will become unlivable shortly after the power goes out. Actually, most major urban areas are barely livable today (my personal opinion, of course) No power to pump water No power to pump sewage. Even if your current hooch has a wood stove etc, you still need food and ...

Re: Mass Blackouts in California

More to the point of this board - 100s of thousands have been forced to evacuate - and many of the hotels used in the past for temporary refuge are behind the 'red (evacuation) line.' I've not seen any stories of shelters being set up - perhaps owing to he fear that the massive "homeless' populatio...

Re: Living in a van, down by the river...

I'm actually looking to fulltime, at least for a year or so. Buy a ~30ft RV, sell the house, and hang out in the RV until I find land I like. Once I'm done with that I might well sell the RV in favor of something like a Casita, Keystone R-pod, or similar. Or keep it and convert a V-nose cargo trail...

Re: Review of new Alcohol cookset.

Yeah they’re great. I picked up a couple of the actual Trangia kits since this post. The main reason is that I also picked up a Bulin butane burner. The bulin burners on eBay are a Chinese clone of the actual Chinese Trangia gas burner. At less than $20 I said ‘why not’ but I found that the tighter...

I recently picked up one of THESE cooksets from Swisslink. The cookset is a chinese knockof of the swedish optimus 77 stormcooker. It is similar to a proper trangia set but for a fraction of the cost! :D Here it is all closed up. There is a pleather strap to hold it together that is not shown. http...

Re: The Coming Civil War - (Warning: No Politics)

I've noted before that folks are asking about 'the coming civil war' and over look the one we are currently (ongoing) engaged in. This 'war' flares up to record levels from time to time - example of this 'flaring ' from times past: "The 1967 Detroit Rebellion , also known as the 1967 Detroit Riot or...

The Moon may be a harsh mistress, but Alaska weather is lethal. We call this kind of folks "end of the roaders' - typically wind up going nuts and killing others before they off them selves.
