Re: Dumpster diving find

One of my best finds was vinyl albums from a radio station that was switching over. 3 huge boxes full and I happen to still have a great stereo system. Yeah, I'm old.

The other day, we found a beautiful couch, no holes or burn marks, no odors, Yay.

Re: Calling All Alaskans

Welcome and maybe read back through the posts here and you may find others in your area. That is a lovely area and I always enjoy the trips made to Valdez over the years.

Re: Dating For Preppers

I worked on the premise that I would find what I needed when I quit looking. Evidently, that means I am supposed to be alone, LOL. I've been a widow since 1988 so I think it is safe to say, time is getting a little thin on finding some guy that don't need a nurse and June Cleaver all rolled into one...

Re: A Practical Discussion – This Whole Homesteading Thing

I also laugh when I read some folks posting about how they are going to do it all and by themselves. I've done bits of it all over the years, but really wouldn't want to be dependent on just myself for the rest of my life for everything I need, to live. As it is, only my daughter and her youngest so...

Re: Going off the grid

So are you looking for people to be in the show or places to go visit? People to teach or be teachers?

Re: Who ate Daffy??

Just my own thoughts with nothing to back it up, but my animals have been such an important part of my life and such good little friends that I don't think anywhere without them would be Heaven.

Re: Canning Vegetables

Even though my Mother and Grandmother water bath canned everything, including meat and fish, I don't. No, none of us got sick, no one died either. I just think that now that there are alternative ways to do things and so many new bacteria and diseases, why take a chance. I did include directions for...

Re: Extension office new look at canning

The problem with having starch in the food canned is that the temperature may not reach the correct heat in the center of the jar. That is why I always have my ingredients that may have some starch in them boiling hot when placed in the jar and the jar placed in the canner with also boiling water al...

Re: Article on hunting, gathering and population.

Oh yeah, I could have gotten at least 2 bears recently if I had actually been in survival mode. One grizzly was within 10 feet and one black bear only a couple of feet farther away. Hitting the panic button on a keychain certainly does panic a bear. I didn't feel like butchering out a bear and the g...

Re: Article on hunting, gathering and population.

Excellent advice, everyone. People that don't know how to garden ahead of time will probably starve and people that don't know how to hunt and care for what they kill if they have the good luck to actually kill something will probably starve or die of food poisoning. If not food poisoning, they may ...

Re: shotgun as a hand out gun

I'm in favor of the revolver also, but shotguns are certainly more scary to the person facing it IMO. So yes, the shotgun would be a great handout gun. Very nice of you to train and supply some people and it should increase the safety of your area. Best wishes.

Re: Meeting With A Builder & Questions

Ah well, maybe he was referring to me as I have not read that particular book and do not follow some rules although I do live in a very nice large home I constructed without knowing I was an idiot. Since it has been standing now for almost 14 years and still is doing great, easily heated in winter w...
