Moving on Friday!

Purged a lot of older canned goods, dried beans, etc. (I’ve been sprouting dried lentils/beans and feeding to the chickens.) Now the chickens are gone. Plan to install a new Fort Knox chicken coop and run within the fenced orchard area this spring, once I get the house squared away.

A lot to do. Can’t wait to get started.

Good luck anita….hoping for a smooth transition for you. :)

Well, being behind enemy lines and the missus putting a “slight delay” :rolleyes: on the relocation plans, I went big on a feasible prep…Under the guise(and reality at the same time) of making memories….

BOOM!!! …… A get-outa-dodge mobile fortress!!!…(lol…not quite)

Will definitely be fun and have a freeeeeee, secure storage site where I can leave it loaded with alternate/backup preps….All under 4500 lbs.

Enter the 2018 fortress. :rofl: …..

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iRje5TUlvo0 …(Nice walkthrough on the interior)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QXjqDamf7O0 …(Exterior glance)

https://www.rvusa.com/rv-guide/2017-keystone-passport-ultra-lite-express-travel-trailer-floorplan-153ml-tr32375 ….(And here is the full specs.)

I used to run the largest RV dealerships here in CA(ages ago)…With my contacts still intact I got it at cost so it worked out perfect….Without disclosing their cost here, basically its a $153 a month prep that I could immediately sell if I needed to for maybe only a 1-2K loss with “Over the curb” deprecation even though I bought it brand new….(I did find a 2017 back east missing quite a bit of the standard load outs for only $14K, but with transport to me it would have ended up the same cost)

Here’s to making memories!!!… :innocent:;):innocent:

Solar • Re: Homemade Solar Cart

October 3, 2017 DR1VENbyKNOWLEDGE 0

Hmmm…That’s impressive.

How many amp hours?

I’m wondering with 6v batteries and an inverter what that might be capable of…….???

A setup like that would be great in the back of my truck for RV camping instead of converting my storage for extra battery storage and access to the sun when the RV is shaded….. 🙂

Thanks for the idea….

General California Discussion, News and Weather • Re: What to do if the SHTF and I am out…..way out.

I’m curios as to why you say a firearm is obviously impossible?

Even without a CA CCW its a snap to get 32 states as non-resident….Take the class(just put a single gun on the ticket as your travel gun), pay about another $100 for the 3 states(AZ,FL,UT) and reciprocity gets you the rest of the states.

You can play with the map here to determine which states work best for you on reciprocity…https://www.usacarry.com/concealed_carry_permit_reciprocity_maps.html

Just sayin’….Of course I don’t know what states you travel to back east and you may not have it there, but just making sure you looked into it as its really simple.

And as others have stated here, a small get-home bag is easy but be prepared for extra security delays at the gates…it happens with those items but no big deal.

Better than storage would be Geo-Caches….Take a trip by car one day….plan out a return route from your most often traveled to area and do the drops accordingly along the way back.

I honestly think its overkill, but who knows…..It would be a fun trip at the very least….

Good luck.

Cast iron was talking a spider not aliens from the pits of hell.
Argh, bleh gag

LOL….Sorry….I couldn’t resist.

There is definitely a small little evil streak in me that get’s the better of me sometimes. :evil::innocent::innocent::innocent:

I thought the water storage tank was especially relevant to us here… :D

{DISCLAIMER….I’m a research FREAK…lol}

Please read below and also feel free to add your personal most recent(the web is always growing) BEST/FAVORITE resources here for a great thread that all can contribute to.

So, you know about Google, of course….

I am shocked how many people still look at me with blank faces when referencing Scholar….For some reason its just not put out there much.

I cant tell you the amount education that this has given me over the years….

The web is a labyrinth. It is an extremely valuable resource but there is just so much trash, opinion, sponsored links, fake news, etc., that you have to really work hard to find reliable information that is fact based…You almost have to have a degree just to be able to reliably navigate it and filter out the trash……Then I stumbled across Scholar about 5 years ago.

ANY time I have a health issue(Myself, friends/family), need to research findings, have a scientific hobby I want to learn more on, etc., I go here…..

It will be clunky at first while learning to navigate it, may be overwhelming to understand (or not…)with the terms used, but I cant tell you enough where it has taken me with a little practice….

Just as an example….I again found a diagnoses for a friend recently that their Dr. missed(So damn common in todays med system…Treat the symptom instead of finding the cure) and it reminded me of how if you’re not happy with the level of care you’re getting to reach out in finding answers instead of waiting for them and just have to pass this on here…Now after mentioning it at least there’s the right direction being taken for treatment…..this has happened 3 times now in this area alone since I learned about it……Of course rely on the experts first but this may help you to understand something more where they just drop the ball in explaining what to expect, complications of procedures, next treatment courses, etc…

That’s just the Med stuff….Like I said this will help you self-educate in SO many other areas….

Sometimes,(well, most of the time these days…lol) if you want something done right you need to do it yourself….

Please check it out….If this post only helps one person learn more, find an answer, etc., then it was worth my time to write. :thumbup:
