Beautiful country. And, obviously, a lot of hard work has gone into your property.

Thank you for sharing your photos.

Mebbe I should not post this but it is good. Just found it on another site, MMM's new pic thread: https://www.survivalistboards.com/sho...d.php?t=142692

Mebbe Mike would of post this in the future, mebbe not.
I posted it here cause there is a picture of this on the first page of his new cabin BOL picture thread:


[quote author=Mtnman Mike link=topic=675.msg5240#msg5240 date=1296287363]
The pic below shows the 100 book survival library on microfiche that I bought for $125 in 1985.

I read most of these books and looked over all of them. I could say much about all of these books but the titles tell enough about them for now. If anyone has any questions just ask and I will tell what I can about these books.

I have this survival library on microfiche stored in my underground bunker on my remote mtn retreat almost 200 miles from where I am right now, so it is not possible to access these books until I go up there in June.


These microfiche are 3x5 sheets of plastic which some of the books are on only one sheet. I can hold all 100 plus books in one hand as the pic below shows the small plastic container that holds all of these microfiche. I use a Cube microfiche reader as well as a field hand held reader. I bought this microfiche survival library in 1985 and used it a lot until 1999 when I got on the net. It should last for more than 100 years unless melted.
I also have quite a few paper books mainly on survival but various topics, non-survival fiction also.




Here is a pic and the link that tells some about the Cube microfiche reader that I have and that I can still use to read the microfiche library > http://www.microcolour.com/mci064.htm I think I paid at least $200 for this Cube microfiche reader which also includes a hand held field reader.





Here is the index card that is inside the plastic box that holds all 100 microfiche books. The print is small on both sides of the card. But these are all of the books in the 100 book Survival Library >

I am going to put the 100 series at the end for it is the most hardcore of all of the books. I also will not give the full title to one or two of the books in the 100 series.

And that is all of the 100 book Survival Library on microfiche that I bought for $125 in 1985.

Hope everyone can find those books if they wish to read them. Not sure if all of them are still in print or available though. Someday many might not be available to the public. Plz tell if any of you have read most or all of these or even not seen some of these titles before.


I also have many paper books and survival magazines such as American Survival Guide and books such as One Man's Wilderness
The $50 and Up Underground House Book
Where There is No Doctor and Where There is No Dentist
The Reader's Digest Back to Basics
Paper copy of "Nuclear War Survival Skills"

and that is only a few of the many books I own and have read.

If anyone wants to add more books that people should have in a survival library please post.

Microfiche was such a great format. I once had a large reader but had to give it away in a move.

I've enjoyed reading about your place. Thanks for taking the time to upload the pics, answer questions etc. Since you always just call your place mtn retreat and such, I think it would be fun if your place had a name like Mount Mike, or Bearhaven, or some other creative, descriptive name. haha
I always name stuff like cars and houses. It is just always something I found to be fun. Just a silly idea I had. You could have a "contest" here to find the best name. lol
Good luck with your retreat!

Thanks for bringing back this "old" thread which I see someone has downrated it! The only one of my pic threads with less than 5 stars.

Anyway, if you or anyone else likes what I have written or more info about a real mtn survival retreat then here is a link to those threads > https://www.survivalistboards.com/sea...archid=9886413

Watch Ryder also made an excellent pic and video thread and he calls my mtn place the Mountain Hold, sometimes even Mike's Gulch. His long but interesting thread > https://www.survivalistboards.com/sho...d.php?t=242472
