I would suggest finding a copy of The Ruth Stout No-Work Garden Book as a primer and then explore permaculture in general. My Armageddon Garden is now over six years old (maybe more-time flies), costs nothing to maintain and NEVER requires fertilizer or water! A good deal of up front work hauling mulch, but the rest is time and nature.

The best part is you can prepare a garden site years in advance and it just sits there unnoticed until needed. It’s how nature does it, but people still think they can improve on perfection. Swamp

Hmm…another new(but older) method for me…lol.

Thanks Swamp

Good stuff Gunns…Thank you! :thumbup:

I’ll check out the FB group…..

The “Organic” gardening thing…???……… Never bought into it, never will….Pure marketing ploy.

I use the word organic to make others feel comfortable :innocent: …lol….Some folks just don’t want to think for themselves once they’ve been sold something thru mass hysteria and only get angry if you force them to question their own beliefs.

Don’t get me started on the Global Warming BS…lol. :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

I had a pretty sever case of Early blight this year that was spreading to an entire row of 8 single stemmed indeterminate while still only 10″ or so a few weeks after transplant.

I had to cut almost all the effected leaves off at the base and just hope for the best. :eek: ….They’ve come back just fine. I’m actually surprised how well they’ve done since almost all leaves were gone.

It was aggressive, but hey…It worked……. So far. :nervous:

Just an update here showing without a proper ID, there is no “Its THIS!!! Quick do THIS now!!!” answers out there….

With just to 4 by 16 foot and 1 5 by 5 foot raised bed I nearly filled my freezer already.

There we go….Thats the pics I remember seeing.

Thanks for chiming in Gunns…

So I have a few questions….

Is there a way to go auto pilot? Travel, vacation, ect….
I have been gardening in raised beds very successfully for 5+ years now…Production and plant health has been great but of course theres been some losses along the way.

I have to put in VERY little effort on a weekly basis….I run drip irrigation and I’ll go weeks without touching the garden other than to admire it and plan next stages in my head for fun….Thats HUGE to be able to do that IMO.

Did you do this huge T bar thing for the growing row trellis?

and cost….What do you at an estimate have into this setup? How much did you pay for the 10 years worth of food?

Thank you very much in advance Gunns…..Your answers will help me to determine if even learning more is worth the book purchase price for me. :thumbup:

lol….My thinking too Mike.

I’m trying to keep an open mind until I learn more, but it’s tuff….I’m openly biased I guess.

I started with Mels method(SQFT Gardening), and have had extreme success as an Urban gardener for living in a rental home… I’ve moved past Mels methods but they’re still the core of any of my plantings.

I thought for sure there was someone here that was doing this method and talked about the years worth of fertilizer they had on hand…..Forget where I saw that honestly.

Hoping they or someone else chimes in here….

I’ve got several camping solar shower bags for solar heating of shower water, but also a number of black plastic totes that can be re-purposed for the same need. That said, since I’ve temporarily relocated I don’t have as much access to water. For the short term living situation, I’d prioritize stored water for drinking, and defer to use of wipes or wet towel methods for personal cleanliness.

I do also have a fine collection of hotel soaps and shampoos to offer any smelly neighbors.

Same here Mike/Everybody…

I have 2 solar bags to hang(5 gal ea.) and a porta-shield(bathroom/shower screen).

I don’t have any creeks in Urbania, but I do live in SoCal…Land of the infinite swimming pools and ocean front properties….Moms house is about 1 mile from me on the other side of a large park with 2 man made lakes.(got solar over there too..36 panels/2 inverters)

Part of my preps is checking out the surrounding area on Google Earth looking for water sources by air now Vs. later….There’s about 3 houses for every 10 that DONT have pools here in my immediate area. That water will go bad but I have treatment and filters for about 50,000 gallons worth….Think I’m good short of nukes. ;)

My water preps/storage on hand, access to more with filters, amount of swimming pools in the area, etc. etc., will not be an issue now that I’m prepped and planned….If I am running into an issue with hygiene from lack of usable water, there’s just going to be far too many more serious issues going on than hygiene at that point…..Looking too clean in an urban environment would be another giveaway stating “I have better supplies than you do, please attack me”.

It’d be the same thing as eating like a king while everyone around you starves…Dirty hair and a little hollowness to the cheeks will be better than armed security in Urbania with the nosey neighbors…..Strategic rationing for appearance sake mind you…. ;)

June 20, 2017 DR1VENbyKNOWLEDGE 0

So a search here is not showing any results for this and I’m kinda suprised there are no threads on this here. (Or search just doesn’t work)

I’ve been hearing about this for years and know very little but from my understanding you use sawdust as the plant media but have to fertilize WEEKLY(UGH!)….You also need to buy a special mix of some sort of food….Don’t know the cost there and again if its worth it.

And there seems to an outsider be a HUGE amount of setup/building needed for this method if you strictly adhere to it…

~~BUT~~ harvest/production is supposed to be huge.

Anyone have hands on experience on this? Years in it and results?

There’s a promotion going on right now from a guy on YouTube named LDSprepper(I have no affiliation with him other than being a subscriber to his YouTube channel)

There’s a new book coming out on it I guess…You can get the first 22 pages of it for free by emailing him here but only till July something for those of you that know as little as I do about it… Book@LDSPrepper.com

Anyways…Just looking to find someone with experience on this…Thanks in advance.

A conventional war wouldn’t last all that long. Russia has numbers, but most of that can not be fielded. Just because they have a couple new things and parade them around doesn’t mean they can do much with the rest.

Now a two front war would be more difficult. If China and Russia were to join together that would be tough, but if they did not go nuclear, they too would lose against America. Biggest reason is our Navy would dominate the Pacific and Indian oceans. Our Air Force and Army would take Europe and our allies would not be able to sit it out.

Nope neither wants a war. What they want is another coward in the White House.

I agree guns….nothing is to be gained. It’s not like either side would gain any additional resources or land short of nukes and then its useless anyways.

But it’s not like “rational thought” :rolleyes: , has stopped the initial outbreaks to begin with in the past …

That’s quite possible farmer dude…Sort of like the unemployment rate… #’s can be mis-represented from the sheer nature of prepping if all we look at are prepping sales supply #’s…

We don’t have “Workforce participation rate” to see if #’s in one area are not telling the whole story though like the unemployment rate does by example….

interesting though….time ultimately will tell.

And more food for thought on Russia….. here’s todays diddy…. http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/06/20/breaking-news-armed-russian-jet-comes-within-5-feet-us-recon-jet.html

So this is why I say things FEEL different with this one…

Times have changed, but they remain the same.

Throughout history tensions rise and fall….What changes is the specific set of conditions around said tensions and the responses ensued that provokes an escalation of action/response to the point of war or a de-escalation.

We don’t even need to look back that far for a perfect example….The Cuban missile crisis….let me paint a little picture here.

The times were different….Back then you had layers…..Layers of people involved that analyzed, took time, and responded. It was weeks, and weeks, and weeks from the time that we knew Russia was putting missiles in Cuba for the industrial military complex and president Kennedy to form a response….time and layers stopped things from “Popping”. Even with the layers involved we BARELY avoided it.

Since that time interactions are common. We approach them, they approach us….. “Intercepts and Escorts” are common everyday things….BUT, they are done professionally….They approach, safely fly alongside one another for a while and then disengage…… professional.

Flash forward to today…..

The Military Industrial Complex is increasingly alarmed in the way these intercepts are done and are noting, publically, that they’re concerned.

Intercepts more and more often by the Russians are EXTREEMLY unsafe. There is more and more intercepts done at extremely high speed as head-on games of chicken veering away at the last possible second. Barrel rolls around a target are common recently as well…. Jittery nerves can quite simply, cause an accident…..So much for professionalism.

Take a big 4 wing NATO/US surveillance aircraft for example…These guys cant really see what’s going on directly around their AC…They just have to trust that the Russian pilot knows what he’s doing as he’s doing barrel rolls around them and not clip their wings….Jittery.

Now we have an AC support pilot that’s told he has the ability to fire if he feels threatened….Ya, can you say “powder keg”?

Next, look at the “Layers”….They aren’t there.

Trump doesn’t even have a full cabinet….the layers are incomplete. Incidents are being reported within minutes to him currently.

Enter the “Twitter-verse”……..I don’t care if you like Trump or not like I do, his Twitter account needs to be shut the hell off. It’s not good for us. He’s like a crack addict with his tweets. He has no filter. We need a filter in SOME instances……Trump already stated back when he was a candidate that “at some point you just need to shoot, you just need to shoot, and take care of it” when asked about Obamas reactions to the high speed intercepts.

So, we have rising tensions, unprofessional interactions, no layers for times to tweet, and POP! ….An accident happens….A Russian jet clips a wing and we lose anywhere from 2-20 American lives depending on the type of aircraft downed in the incident.

Enter the final difference from 1962…..Political pressure for IMMEDIATE response…

If something happens in the tiniest bit these days, the absolute pandering for an immediate response is demanded on any administration…Media, officials, the public, all demanding, HOUNDING, for an immediate reaction. Whatever it is will be criticized. That’s not the point. The point is no layers, and no time allowed for an appropriate response.

There is nothing you or I can do about it in any way other than to discuss, so this is just food for thought…….I’m not freaking out or anything…lol…I’m just analytical by nature. I study facts and how history has repeated itself with differing circumstances going WAY WAY back for fun.

I’m telling you guys though, this one just feels different to me. Too many lines are connecting.

I’ll be very happy when you guys prove correct though. :)
Until then, we discuss and observe.

Natural Disasters • Re: Earthquake Swarm Yellowstone

June 19, 2017 DR1VENbyKNOWLEDGE 0

USGS just sent me this alert…We’ve seen this before but a change in monitor status is something to just watch…no worries yet. ;)

YELLOWSTONE VOLCANO OBSERVATORY INFORMATION STATEMENT
U.S. Geological Survey
Monday, June 19, 2017, 3:09 PM MDT (Monday, June 19, 2017, 21:09 UTC)

YELLOWSTONE VOLCANO (VNUM #325010)
44°25’48” N 110°40’12” W, Summit Elevation 9203 ft (2805 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: NORMAL
Current Aviation Color Code: GREEN

The University of Utah, a YVO member agency, sent out the following update about the ongoing earthquake swarm north of West Yellowstone.

The University of Utah Seismograph Stations (UUSS) is monitoring an earthquake swarm which is currently active on the western edge of Yellowstone National Park. The swarm began on June 12th, 2017 and, as of 13:30 MDT on June 19th, 2017, is composed of 464 events with the largest magnitude of ML 4.4 (MW 4.4) (Figure 1). The swarm consists of one earthquake in the magnitude 4 range, 5 earthquakes in the magnitude 3 range, 57 earthquakes in the magnitude 2 range, 238 earthquakes in the magnitude 1 range, 157 earthquakes in the magnitude 0 range, and 6 earthquakes with magnitudes of less than zero. These events have depths from ~0.0 km to ~14.5 km, relative to sea level. At the time of this report, there were 115 felt reports for the M4.4 event that occurred on June 16, 2017 at 00:48:46.94 UTC (June 15, 2017 at 18:48:46.94 MDT). The M4.4 event has an oblique strike-slip moment tensor solution (Figures 1 & 2).

Earthquake swarms are common in Yellowstone and, on average, comprise about 50% of the total seismicity in the Yellowstone region.

Related figures can be viewed on the original post: http://quake.utah.edu/research/special- … owstone-mt

This is the highest number of earthquakes at Yellowstone within a single week in the past five years, but is fewer than weekly counts during similar earthquakes swarms in 2002, 2004, 2008 and 2010.

The Yellowstone Volcano Observatory (YVO) provides long-term monitoring of volcanic and earthquake activity in the Yellowstone National Park region. Yellowstone is the site of the largest and most diverse collection of natural thermal features in the world and the first National Park. YVO is one of the five USGS Volcano Observatories that monitor volcanoes within the United States for science and public safety.

Natural Disasters • Re: Earthquake Swarm Yellowstone

June 19, 2017 DR1VENbyKNOWLEDGE 0

USGS just sent me this alert…We’ve seen this before but a change in monitor status is something to just watch…no worries yet. ;)

YELLOWSTONE VOLCANO OBSERVATORY INFORMATION STATEMENT
U.S. Geological Survey
Monday, June 19, 2017, 3:09 PM MDT (Monday, June 19, 2017, 21:09 UTC)

YELLOWSTONE VOLCANO (VNUM #325010)
44°25’48” N 110°40’12” W, Summit Elevation 9203 ft (2805 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: NORMAL
Current Aviation Color Code: GREEN

The University of Utah, a YVO member agency, sent out the following update about the ongoing earthquake swarm north of West Yellowstone.

The University of Utah Seismograph Stations (UUSS) is monitoring an earthquake swarm which is currently active on the western edge of Yellowstone National Park. The swarm began on June 12th, 2017 and, as of 13:30 MDT on June 19th, 2017, is composed of 464 events with the largest magnitude of ML 4.4 (MW 4.4) (Figure 1). The swarm consists of one earthquake in the magnitude 4 range, 5 earthquakes in the magnitude 3 range, 57 earthquakes in the magnitude 2 range, 238 earthquakes in the magnitude 1 range, 157 earthquakes in the magnitude 0 range, and 6 earthquakes with magnitudes of less than zero. These events have depths from ~0.0 km to ~14.5 km, relative to sea level. At the time of this report, there were 115 felt reports for the M4.4 event that occurred on June 16, 2017 at 00:48:46.94 UTC (June 15, 2017 at 18:48:46.94 MDT). The M4.4 event has an oblique strike-slip moment tensor solution (Figures 1 & 2).

Earthquake swarms are common in Yellowstone and, on average, comprise about 50% of the total seismicity in the Yellowstone region.

Related figures can be viewed on the original post: http://quake.utah.edu/research/special- … owstone-mt

This is the highest number of earthquakes at Yellowstone within a single week in the past five years, but is fewer than weekly counts during similar earthquakes swarms in 2002, 2004, 2008 and 2010.

The Yellowstone Volcano Observatory (YVO) provides long-term monitoring of volcanic and earthquake activity in the Yellowstone National Park region. Yellowstone is the site of the largest and most diverse collection of natural thermal features in the world and the first National Park. YVO is one of the five USGS Volcano Observatories that monitor volcanoes within the United States for science and public safety.

Yep. I’d agree with the viewpoint, but I’m specifically talking about a “Flash Point” here….

You could state that WWII(or the US entering into it) was started by Pearl Harbor…But it could be traced back to the initial hostilities of Japan taking the Islands, Invading China(after false flag Op. Mukden), etc…Even before the US embargo on oil they were active…Flash point I’m talking here as the example would be the embargo or the actual bombing of PH…

Now we have the Syrian events and they’ve led here…

On the point of Preppers dropping the ball, Obviously its not us here(since we’re active), but the sales #’s don’t lie.(saw them a while back)..Big-time food distributes have seen significant downturn…and its continued….As quiet as Peppers are about Preps, the only real indicator we’d have on this is sales trends. That’s why you see so many articles about “Don’t stop prepping because Trump was elected” out there…Opinions being voiced and sales dropping. Here’s an older article talking the numbers.
http://www.askaprepper.com/like-nuclear-bomb-went-off-prepping-community/

Back on the Russia thing, I understand saber-rattling of course. But with the actions of Putin and the citizens being told actively (3 months ago and earlier) to get ready for nuclear war(Yes, its a distraction to keep them focusing elsewhere from his failing policies and economy) but what better than the next step for real distraction?

And of course our own reply now….

“We do not seek conflict with any party in Syria other than ISIS, but we will not hesitate to defend ourselves or our partners if threatened,” Capt. Jeff Davis told Fox News.

“As a result of recent encounters involving pro-Syrian Regime and Russian forces, we have taken prudent measures to re-position aircraft over Syria so as to continue targeting ISIS forces while ensuring the safety of our aircrew given known threats in the battlespace,” Rankine-Galloway said in a statement.

I understand exactly what you guys are referencing(and agree in general), but this one feels a little different to me analyzing the recent past Vs. human history…It’s why I’m even mentioning it to begin with….

No one else see’s this?

Not that it’s determining any actions by me of course…Just of note and curious.

So, some folks think they can stop prepping because Trumps in office???

Think again.

This is the first real-world conflict with real-world repercussions he has faced……There’s no simple “Fake News” to combat here…This is VERY real.

Syria has had ALL the makings of a world-war producer/powder keg since it started…all sorts of different governments/world-powers involved on different sides.

Is this the “flash point”?


[SNIP]

Russia’s defense ministry said planes flying in Syria, west of the Euphrates River, would be considered targets.

The news came one day after the first time in history a U.S. jet shot down a Syrian plane – and the first time in nearly 20 years the U.S. has shot down any warplane in air-to-air combat.

The last time a U.S. jet had shot down another country’s aircraft came over Kosovo in 1999 when a U.S. Air Force F-15 Eagle shot down a Serbian MiG-29.

http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/06/19/us-shoot-down-syrian-jet-prompts-russian-threat.html

The fundamental idea behind Prepping is self reliance. We all, one way or another prepare for a governmental, institutional, & general social break down. This by its very definition is a breakdown in authority. Prepping is at its core a process that develops our self sufficiency. That also includes self sufficiency of thought and opinion. Each of us exists in unique circumstances, values and capability. Each of us prepares based on those points to the extent of our willingness and perceived needs. Why would I need an authority to direct me? There are people who know more about many things that I do not. I can learn from them but it is my ultimate judgement that takes precedence.

This question is similar to those that ask how to “join” the Prepper community or specific Prepper communities. Prepping is not a club, but the very opposite of a club. You don’t join or submit to any authority you simply DO.

^^^^^^^^^ +10,000! ^^^^^^^^^^

This is exactly correct IMHO…Prepping is SELF-reliance….as a community we grow and expand our knowledge sharing our experience but prepping by nature is personal, and a solitary endeavor.

We have community, of course, for the strength added to the individual, but without the experience, knowledge, a willingness of the individual to take action , and a self imposed desire to grow, the community fails…..It is up to each individual to succeed.

Social Equality means there isn’t one place in the building that has advantage over others. Maybe we should try and make that type of civilization a goal for the future. As for the frying pan theory… It’s not going to be desert for long.

Straight triggers were the rage during the 1890s when H&H and Drilling Rifles became popular for African hunts. Straight triggers were easier and faster to make but straight or curved, when you touched off a 600 Nitro Express its going to hurt you. Then straight triggers were installed on smaller bore high end Mauser and Martini hunting rifles of the bolt action design. It was found that a rifle with a curved trigger shot tighter groups because more surface area of the trigger finger came in contact with the curved trigger. This caused improved hand to brain nerve signal transmission so since then most military rack grade and civilian hunting rifles have been made with curved triggers. The latest drop in equipment may be a sales gimmick, hurry up and get yours before they are gone and you are left standing in the dust, I don’t know. I have been plinking with the AR for a half century and am too old to change triggers and learn something new. Old time muscle memory pretty much controls what I do and how I shoot, I got used to curved triggers and like them so will keep them on my rifles.

Interesting…I didn’t know that history FullMoon…Thanks for that. :thumbup:

Your wife has to be willing to work with you to be considered a double threat though, right Reb?…. ;) I know I’m Asssed out on that one. :rofl:

This one is a sore spot for me(No, not the wife thing)…

I’m stymied on finding scripts for antibiotics…I’m not willing to travel to Mexico since the closest border for me is TJ(talk about a hell hole), and I cant find a single Dr. willing to write me a script for just preps. I’m pulling my hair out on this one….Cant even pay cash in Canada without a script….I want meds and just don’t trust the “dosage info/quality/manufactured in China” situation that pet meds entail…Homeopathy will only take you so far.

I’m prepped for food, water, about as trained/practiced as you can be in firearms without ever being actually downrange(NO ONE knows how good they are until led is coming at you), been growing my own for the last 4 years now roughly, extra seeds on hand, etc. etc. etc……My med preps SUCK!!!! I’m very frustrated in this area…I have a 2 yr old that I feel extra responsible for and have nothing past basic first aid.

Dr’s, if ever a SHTF situ happens, will be VERY hard to access…There just aren’t enough of them…

It is only a show, sure… But I find the last couple of seasons of the Walking Dead very accurate in this specific area speculating….Communities would have only one or 2 within them….Any “warlord” in a given area will definitely be snatching them up as a priority resource…..Not only will Dr’s/nurses be sparse, if they want to stay in a semi safe environment they will have to keep a low profile or be heavily defended…

Comes down to personal preference really…

I know there’s some guys that state “It’s crisper” for them…that’s just a perception.

Trigger crispness is all part of the internals completely dependent on manufacture quality, straight or curved……There’s always the $.50 trigger job but that’s beside the point and also no different flat or curved.

There is for sure a different feel to the trigger so like I stated, it’s really just personal preference.

The only downfall that I’ve ever noticed on a flat is if your running a B.A.D……(Battery Assist Device)….It puts your finger a little more forward on a trigger reset and that can accidently hit the B.A.D. switch or just be uncomfortable.

I like the B.A.D….It’s actually pretty intuitive and make clearing a double feed very easy and fast. Age old wisdom on that again though is train with standardized gear in case the next one you pick up doesn’t have it…which is almost guaranteed. ;)

I wouldn’t go spending $100+ on a flat to check it out, but try one if you can….You just might love it.
