Re: Maybe prepare for another ammo shortage?

After posting originally I took stock of what I had and realized I’m good to go. I had “lost” about 14 ammo cases in the garage. So I’m pretty well stocked for anything I can plan. Im sitting as I shoot normally, im at a 3 year supply. That’s shooting what I shoot normally and never replenishing and...

Hell yeah! It’s coming together! The designs look great! I’m looking forward to seeing more information on the heating system. Rocket mass heater? Or what do you plan? The big tank thing in the back is going to be your water supply? I take it rain water or filtered from the pond? Or did you find ano...

Re: California Drought

There will be another drought. Then we can do it all over again. Same can be said for the Southwest which just a couple years ago was in a drought. It’s how things get managed. We are seeing more droughts around the world with water scarcity increasing. The entire southwest with has a population ro...

Re: The Ongoing Man Made Opiod Catastrophe

I see where everyone is coming from. It’s a heated topic, one that many don’t really see eye to eye. I posted something in this forum a while ago (couple years ago actually) where I said opioids are a major issue. I wasn’t belittled directly, however I was told “it’s not a big deal”.

Re: Is NYC Going Bankrupt?

When topics like this come up, I love bringing up Kansas. How did it fare when it cut taxes to attract outside investment. I also recall many saying that California was doom, it was going to literally collapse because I’d the debt, yet they raised some taxes and now are running a surplus. Not to men...

Re: We need to up our bush shelter game folks

I’ve only got 5 acres, but I have convinced the GF that we should make a primitive camp at the bottom of the property for “camping adventures” she’s down. I told her it would have to be done with hand tools and we’d have to spend the knight in them. So we’ll see. We are going to clear an area first ...

I went through a period of watching a TON of Filipino guys. The only one I still watch is the “Peimitive Skills” guy. Because I like that he actually tries to run a homestead. The “Primitive Technology” guy hasn’t been updating as much as he used to. Used to updated in the first week of the month, b...

The issue with loose leaf is it has to be stored very well or it can go bad. The gf just quit her coffee habit in fav...
