bunkerbuster New compact portable pressure washer
(no tank - you connect it to a garden hose)

Yesterday 10:41 PM
bunkerbuster Sturdy SS backpack cooking kit, $4 thrift store buy.
Everything fits in the larger pot, with the lid on.



Lid for the larger pot is 2X thick, non-stick & can be used as a skillet, with a pot grabber.

Allow me to humbly offer my palate and opinion for QC purposes j/k. Willing to trade recipes and exchange ideas.

Mad scientist idea, combining a smoke house and a greenhouse built on a slope. Where the fire box is 20+ feet from the smoking chamber. Instead of radient heat drying firewood making a heat absorbing thermal mass to keep the plants warm.

IceFire My order of Tattler lids and rings arrived today. Also a canning ladle, that will end up being my dedicated cheesemaking ladle. I'll end up ordering another to actually use for canning.

Other than that, nothing else today...spent it waiting for a kidney stone to pass. Still waiting...

it's amazing how that works. sometimes i'll go looking for information on the internet and find an earlier post by myself from 4+ years ago with the answer. surely i'm too young to have serious memory loss but it's kind of funny sometimes

knowledgeispower I spend a small portion of each day seeking out information and books to add to the digital library, to read either now or later.

Download of the day:

Epic Tomatoes
https://www.pdfdrive.com/epic-tomato...185378446.html

P.S. - not sure if this type of post to published works is acceptable or not (I have no affiliation with pdfdrive, just a great resource I recently discovered and want to share). If it violates any board standards, please feel free to remove and let me know. I just feel that at this point in time we all have limited budgets and would value having access to this type of information.

P.P.S. - if this is okay, I'll post another download of the day tomorrow.

Just Jeff Well, welcome back! This is a good thread to jump into. There's a lot of good info on SB, but an increasing amount of BS to filter out to get to it. A change in ownership a few years back was probably good for profits, but less good for content. Still, it's easily one of the best survival/prepper focused sites in this format.

I filter out the noise by creating my own bookmark. Paste the below URL into your bookmark and it'll show you the new posts only in the subforums you choose (after you tailor the subs to your liking).

https://www.survivalistboards.com/se...08,19,46,47,50

The numbers are the subforums. Just go to the main page and hover over each URL to get the number, and you can tailor your bookmark to focus only on what's useful to you.

Note that if you just follow that link, it'll autoforward to the search results page...which means you can't just follow it and click "add bookmark" in your browser. You have to actually open the bookmark's properties and paste the above into the URL box.

I had forgotten I even had created an account here back in 2010, and landed back on the boards as I was hunting down .pdf preparedness books / manuals / resources (from here: https://www.zombiehunters.org/forum/...ic.php?t=91557)

Needed an account to download, and went to create one, and lo and behold, a younger version of myself had already registered. After login recovery, discovered I needed to make some posts to download, so I figured I might as well jump back into the boards and contribute and see if this was a community I wanted to become a part of.

About me: long time prepper who is always seeking to improve knowledge, skills, and resources. 2020 is an acceleration wake up call that the window to prepare may closing. I predict the election will bring massive civil unrest (i.e. BLM already this year), and want to keep my family safe to ride out the storms that are coming.

ackbob Helped a friend get her vehicle in drivable shape. Charged battery over 2 days, filled tires, filled fluids, replaced wipers, etc... she let it sit all winter because she hasn't left her house since everything began. Then watered and weeded the garden

survive Been scoring some 55 Gallon Drums and 5 Gallon Jugs from a local manufacturing outfit.

Trying to think of ways to use the 5 Gallon Square Jugs that are too difficult to clean out or that have no lids.

Was thinking perhaps to cut the tops off and use them for container planting

emh1701 Exercise was my prep today. Its nice out, I have PTO to use up, so I found a local trail and went walking this morning.

MEDIC1957 Picked nearly a 5 gallon bucket of granny smith apples from my 2 trees. Another bucket full from my pear trees. Already have 8 gallon bags of blueberries in the freezer from our 7 bushes, picked another gallon this morning.

It took two 'experiences' with a skunk including a face full from two feet that I witnessed to convince my Australian Shepherd to growl and bark at a skunk - from a distance.

Major Mjolnir Picking tomatoes and shredding cabbage. Spent the last couple of weeks scouting my pecans and 'Red' oaks, in this case "Quercus imbricaria" aka 'shingle oak', to get an idea of the size of this year's mast. Ordered a few more magazines for the armory.

Out of curiosity, what motivated you to make your first post after being a member for ten years?
