Made 2 batches of mozzarella today. Decided to experiment and use animal rennet instead of vegetable rennet, and see if there was any difference in yield. The animal rennet DID give a higher yield than the vegetable rennet.

Currently have some feta in the works - it's currently in the pot on the stove.

Also harvested a bunch of the milo heads. Once I get the seeds off of the heads, there should be at least a couple of pounds' worth. That's WAY more than what I had to start.

Just got back from a mining claim staking trip to the woods.
It was cold wet nasty rainy weather most of the time there.

Caught a slight case of the runny nose sniffles.
Applied some medicated "chest rub" when I got home, to help alleviate it.

I noticed this stuff contains camphor and eucalyptus oil & the carrier is petroleum jelly.
All of which is VERY flammable.
Rubbed some on a cotton ball & ignited it. (see pics below)

LOL, it works better than Vaseline alone.
It ignites as easy as napalm, has a big flame envelope & burns a LONG time

Container its comes in is plastic, compact, lightweight & VERY durable.
It makes a very functional duel purpose FIRE STARTER TINDER
As well as a good chest rub, to help clear up your sinus's & stuffy - runny nose.

Hahaha... only you (Bunkerbuster) would find a way to incorporate the fire-fetish while nursing back to health.

Glad youíre home safe. Hopefully it was a profitable adventure.

Just put in some posts, nail up marker signs & on the way back file with the County & BLM.

Weather forecast there is cold/rainy (no snow yet). Going like my shirt is on-fire, to beat the snow & whoever else becomes aware its open to acquisition.

Advantage of being well prepped, is all I had to do today was add better rain gear, better food, bigger tarp to well cover a tent, to one of my BOV prepped jeep Cherokee's & I'm ready to go. Around a 1500 mile round trip

Wife is having fits, not wanting me to go alone.
My dog Sarge is to lame & old to take.
Rest of the adult family is occupied elsewhere.

Deposit is worth around $150K at a quick fire sale.
Maybe $250K, if I wanted to patiently advertise it.

Leaving in the morning, see you-all in about a week or 10 or so days.
Will take LOTS of pictures. This old man still got in him, to carry this off.
(at least I think so, lol.)
Got the job DONE.
Staked a mile long placer gold deposit, with massive reserves.
Multiple mining cabin ruins along the deposit.

Access was far better than I thought.
Placer gold deposit is also bigger / better than I could hope for.....







Didn't tent camp out. Wimped out & rented an off-grid cabin in the area to stay in.
My advanced age, poor health & physical condition warranted doing so.

Is that the before and after pics of your cabin? I know you never rest. You rented the beater and fixed it up as you stayed there, didnít you?

Rental cabin was as-is in good shape. Had a good tight wood burning heater stove, nice bed, table, pitcher & wash basin bowl to wash up with & a cozy clean out-house out back.

No cooking allowed inside - unless it was something you could BOIL on the wood stove. Impressively fit old cougar gal widow lady that owns & rents it out, was afraid some city slicker yo/yo would start a fire cooking things & burn the cabin down.

Not an issue for me, as the food I brought along was primarily open can or mason jar, pour in pot, heat and serve grub anyway. + I had paper plates & bowls along so I didn't have to wash many dish's.

Nothing better to smell than fresh coffee peculating on a wood stove you fire up early in the morning to knock the morning frost off the windows.

It was a GREAT & very productive trip

Well, paid off all the credit cards except one, and will pay it off once my other money comes in (month sep and 401k excess fund) so while I am still out of a job I will also be out of debt.

Last trip to the woods staking placer gold claims.
Logged the GPS position of several abandoned depression era cabins/shacks.
That sit on USFS public domain & no one claims ownership of.
Next year plan to have the crew tear down & salvage them for the weathered wood.
Which has lots of uses & sells for pretty good money.

Picked up a deep (chicken fryer) Wagner cast iron skillet (like BB posted a couple of weeks ago) for $25. Best price I've seen on one in ages. Plus a couple of sleeping bags (one full size and one child) for $4 each to add to my stash.

Also since I am officially an orphan, I've decided I want BB to adopt me. As a prep for the day of course.

$30 River Rock waterproof mini-multi-mode backpacker lantern
49 cent thrift store buy. No batteries in it. (takes 3 AA's)
LOL, I gambled the 49 cents that it would work with new batteries inserted.
Gamble paid off, it works perfectly.

You pretty much have to be born or married into my family.
Exceptions are business partners, doctors, nurses, craftsman, etc., who did right by me
