Re: Winter camping

LOL, to me, if they call it a 2 person tent, it is for one unless you are REALLY good friends and so I usually halve the number of occupants in a tent for a bit more comfort. When I was guiding, I used 3 man tents and only put one person to a tent. I like to put a tarp under the tent and another one...

Re: OK, i don't know hot to say this, but here goes...

I agree with almost everyone here on this thread. I have seen people jump in and selflessly help out without regard to their own safety and regardless of nationality of anyone involved, while an emergency is happening, yet turn right around and say the most offensive crap at a later date just becaus...

Re: Meeting With A Builder & Questions

There ARE still areas that have no code or permits required, but as far as I know for sure, that is only in unorganized borough areas of Alaska. My daughter, two of her teenaged children and I with occasional help from a friend built a 3 story home for my daughter. We started on bare ground in mid J...

Re: How do you store your empty jars?

If the jars are empty, use milk crates, store the jars upside down so dirt and water doesn't get into them and stash under the trailer until needed.

Re: Metal Roofs are Dangerous!

Most roofs that work well up here are "cold" roofs so usually there isn't much ice from heat in the building and it doesn't take much space between the insulation and a metal roof to make it a "cold" roof here. I think I have about 3 inches of space. This year I have a new proble...

Re: Growing Peanuts

I was going by a book on flowers in Alaska. Siberian Pea is grown as a hedge around Fairbanks and is very intrusive if not planted with metal or concrete root surrounds and the seeds kept cleaned up as it grows from roots and seeds prolifically. I was going to start some here anyway since they do gr...

Re: Growing Peanuts

The Siberian pea shrubs grow very well up here but we are told the seeds are poisonous. Might check that out.

I'm thinking if I started the peanuts in the house so it might be warm enough to sprout, maybe I will try growing some this summer if I can find raw peanuts.

Re: How do you store your empty jars?

The shelves in the pantry if there is room or many jars but they seem to get refilled before there is a problem. I nailed 1x2's on the front of the shelves to make an edge, this is also earthquake country

Re: Metal Roofs are Dangerous!

Yes, they can be dangerous, I consider the fire protection worth it and keep everything away from it, including vehicles when there is snow.

Re: Quick cook quinoa? Millet?

The quinoa flakes are good cooked as cereal and I add them to bread dough most of the time. Don't use too much in bread as it doesn't have the gluten. To mask cooking odors, place food in jars and put lids on as though you were canning, only used washed used lids, you aren't trying to seal this and ...
