Unfortunately, we don't have a BOL...yet. In a few years I plan on getting a small cabin somwhere...MUST be by water (lake, stream, river, etc).

What we do have is tons of trees right in our back yard. Plenty of dead/fallen wood to boot. So as long as we stay on top of sweeping (during a SHTF), I suppose we can burn green.

You got me thinking about a specific BOL now. I guess it couldn't hurt to start looking for property/small house/cabin near water now...

Thanks

Scored a large Nesco American Harvest "Gardenmaster" dehydrator on Craig's list for $25. ($132 on Amazon.) Now to reduce the garden into little shriveled remnants.

For some reason, people seem to buy dehydrators, not use them, and then sell them on C-list at bargain prices. There's always lotsa dehydrators for sale. However, get one that blows air horizontally over the surfaces, if possible. Cheapies won't do that.

Yard sales were great this Saturday (sometimes I go and get skunked for a couple of weeks).

Scored some dirt workin' tools, a small Weber BBQ, a gas stove *and* a gallon of white gas, all for under $18!

Our local Walmart is catching on, bought 3 of these today for $63 each. Not a great price but better than the Wise buckets we bought on line 6 months ago for 110 each shipped.

Storms in the DC/Virginia area finally got me to the equipment store to purchase a chainsaw. Got done with work a bit early and just bit the bullet. Thanks to all the fellows who Rx a Stihl in another thread. Should be good to go now.

Bought a Remington 870 Express 20 ga. shotty w/ 18" and 26" barrels, ANIB, never fired for $325. Tested it it last week with 3" #2 Buckshot with the short barrel, great pattern and reduced recoil. Great little brother to the 870 Express Magnum 12 Ga. (Marine Magnum in black).

Note: do not mix ammonia and chlorine ( bleach) as it combines to make Chloramine gas that will burn your throat and lungs and could be fatal.

Honestly I thought you were joking at first with the "Laundry" cover. An old neighbor of ours used to use this mixture to get rid of groundhogs. Worked like a charm.

In an enclosed/confined area this would be highly lethal.

D.G., you may want to also consider some kevlar chainsaw pants (or chaps, in this case):

It seems they don't want you to know what those cost.

Guess that means I don't want to know.

I purchased a Spyderco Sharpener with the extra fine sticks as well. I disciplined myself to watch a number of videos on youtube about knife sharpening. Then, I sharpened all the knives at home.

I have purchased an axe stone and have watched the videos. Sharpening the axes is the next project.

I also fixed up the bike to start bike riding again.

The most difficult times I have are: 1. reading and understanding instruction manuals (even when using a magnifying glass); 2. locating spare and replacement parts (even going on the internet and searching); 3. following instructions.

I'm so thankful I had a helmet the second time. I was riding my road bike with clip shoes. The front wheel got off the pavement and stuck in the grass. I couldn't get my feet out of the peddles fast enough.

The side of the helmet was completely crushed on the cement sidewalk. I was going very slow at the time less then 10 mph.

<--- is doing the crossfit and losing some weight with the Paleo diet. That's simple and the Gov't can't take that away from me. Read several SHTF books and practice them little.

i was 16 riding a bicycle to work in the rain and got t-boned by a chevy astro that was doing 45mph and blew through a yield in a residential part of town. broken pelvis in two places, blew out both knees, shattered a hip and broke my neck. somehow i still left for basic training and was fine 18 months later. doctor attributed it to me being in pretty good shape from a 100+ mile hike in Philmont less than a year prior.

on topic: got a trade deal worked out for a nice lincoln electric pro mig 175 welder. now i have to brush up on welding again - actually pretty well re-learn, i could arc weld 15 years ago...

Got my first "assault rifle" this week. Shot it once, then hit a couple basic upgrades. Colt LE6920, magpul MOE handguard w/sling swivel attachment point, surefire/viking tactics L4 (Scout head and tailcap with E2DL body), vickers combat applications sling.

Finally got around to organizing a spreadsheet of "what for who" or maybe "who gets what" weapon-wise in a worst-case scenario. For years have had some 'extra' firearms (as most of us probably do ), but with the conscious idea that if push came to shove, there were some folks that I'd distribute some of them out to. Not a ton of guns & certainly not a ton of folks, but some. Some each of family members, neighbors, and employees.

Putting it on paper helped a lot, making it much more simple to include notes; primarily notes on what they already owned, and who all was in their home situation. Since "Bubba" already has a 5906, no handgun alloted for him, but a couple extra 5906 magazines & shells for him out of my stock; and since "Billy Ray" has an sks, no rifle for him, but some ammo. A buck 119 also set aside for each of those two. Since "Marilyn" is single and her only gun is a Davis .380 auto, but has a near-grown teenage boy and two other kids in the house, a .38 revolver & M1 carbine for them. Things like that, just figured it was a good idea to have it organized somewhat ahead of time. Likely never be an issue, hopefully never be; but can't hurt to have a plan lined out.

Next similar organization project is doing the same thing with food, tools, etc, I've got set aside for others; organizing the "who and what" of that as well.

Sharp.

If you don't mind a couple suggestions, the first two things I'd recommend for that is a quick-acquisition short-to-medium-range optic and a lot of ammo; and most of that ammo sent downrange in the pursuit of practice & familiarity.
