No Seriously - I have a bunch of rocks on my Bug Out Land (actually my bug in land), 30 years ago it was wooded, then someone logged it out, took a bulldozer to it an pushed all the stumps and topsoil to the sides. Whats left is super crappy soil and rock - lots and lots of rock. I have 2 large piles of them, ranging in size from baseballs to Microwaves. Is there anything I can use these for? I have an endless supply of them...

Make barricades.

Use dirt and rocks to make entrenchments around your camp, where you could defend it (if necessary).

Look at pics of england, scotland, etc. They made fences from them...and they look neat too.

If you're in south, ga. holler, I'd come get a truckload for the yard.

You mean a drystone dyke? There's a technique to building them, although I don't believe it is too complex.

Over here you can go on weekend courses. I don't know about over there.

Rock walls for a cabin, wood shed or barn. Rock retaining walls. I think your imagination is your only limitation

If you got a stream on the property maybe use the rocks to dam parts of it up to make some large pools of water.

Small ones can supplement a driveway.

Seriously rocks have many uses.

I like that olddude. Some should do that. I have heard of some building cabins, walls and Bunkers out of rocks and cement.
This is what I would do and have done >

The link to the castle builder guy > http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bishop_Castle

One guy used many many rocks and cement to make this castle >

Im thinking of going the rock wall route... Im going to gather as many rocks as I can, then estimate the size of a wall I can build. Good thing about my Bug in Land is that it is in the unglaciated area of southwest Wisconsin, so it is only accessible to vehicles down the driveway - Once I block that in a SHTF situation its pretty well protected.

Looks like I have a fun little project
