Re: Practical Prepping Protocol even if Poor
Earlier I recommended everyone read the thread about the possible power outage. This is a post on that thread from BodiDoc, one of my favorite mods, which reminded me that I read about the CME which wasn't large, but could be involved. LI, was this the one you posted yesterday?

At any rate, have a read, people. We may need action.

We had a B8 Solar flare over the weekend which will
have some CME effects on the planet (not a direct hit
but bad enough) which may have them concerned about
the infrastructure of Wyoming's state. I don't know
if having electricity already traveling through electric
carrier lines when a CME effect happens is WORSE than
if the wires are turned off...I am assuming it would be
far better to have the electricity OFF.

In any event...the power outage is very odd and even
more strange that they are not alerting the public if
they believe electromagnetic energy will be disruptive
in this area--there are other concerns people may have
as well, if this is in fact what is sparking the planned
outage.

Seems like it would be great, if not too heavy for your plan to carry it, and it is very spendy! I admired it, on my way to the little butane burner.

Haven't heard from anyone here already having one - do you, somebody?

I already built a rocket stove with concrete blocks, and a few bricks. It works great. So will the Kelly kettle be my portable cooking option?
I do camp a lot & like to be minimal. Is it worth the cost in the long run? It is rather pricey, but I would not mind if it saves in the long run, cost of charcoal, use of lumber, ect.

Crunch, how's your back today after moving all that wood? And how was the zero dark thirty trip to Walmart?

So tell us how you are doing, please, Crunch - hope your back didn't seize up today.
 Quoting: Pooka


Doing well. I got some mowing done yesterday and will be weedwacking and spraying today.Gotta keep up on that stuff or it gets overgrown in a hurry.

Walmart trip was fine. 6 AM is the best time to be at WM. Deer, rabbits, skunks and pheasants on the gravel back roads.

I am taking note of where the deer are - and when. Could be useful at some point.

Does anyone burn on their property or have a fire pit anymore?

 Quoting: Anonymous JD


Yes. I have a burn 'pit' that is made from a section of boiler jacket from the gold rush days here.

Was a stationary steam engine, maybe from a sawmill. We have used it to burn as well as cook. Once did 4 whole chickens and 2 tri-tip on it.

There is a pic of a similar engine out there, lost in photobucket hell. Here's a pic from today with a fire ready to be started.

It has brick in the bottom.

Glad you recover so quickly! And yes, could be useful information, but do recall how many people believe they will be going to the woods to live off game - and get yours first thing once SHTF.

Please tell me you are not spraying RoundUp. That is poisonous to all life, including your own. Please do not use any MOnsanto products. Vinegar will do as well, sprayed or poured at the base of the plants. RoundUp kills everything - birds, bees, butterflies, deer, squirrels, people - it is a horrible poison used to kill much more than weeds.

Not near my vegetables. Only fence lines and parking areas.

I have tried vinegar solutions, etc. They don't work. Keeping weeds down is paramount here. Otherwise, they pose extreme fire danger in July through October

I just bought about 20 heavy ceramic magnets oddly enough. They'll attach things to cars, like camouflage covers, mosquito netting, etc.

Edit update: I bought these because I became lucky and purchased a camouflaged cover for the car, in case a run to the mountains and forest is required and we need to tuck away under the trees for a while. Also thought of putting tarps in place with them. And have a newly-acquired frost covering for windshield - could use the magnets to hold it in place instead of tucking a flap inside each front door.

Truth be told, I just like magnets. Always did, even as a child. Only had one once or twice to play with. Now I am all grown up I can have dessert before dinner, or even instead, if I please, and I can play with magnets. :) :)

These are strong enough that I can lay one on my palm and move it via another under my hand. They will close an inch or more space between them just to be together again.

Wish all marriages were like that, right?

Re: Practical Prepping Protocol even if Poor
I meant transmit, not broadcast - my apologies. New terminology. :)

I would LOVE to be of service, make a contribution, especially if I could do so sitting right here. And if the main receiver and scanner is/are confiscated, doggone that's a shame! Oh, wait - I might have something else tucked away in the back of the closet! I will be looking for used equipment, though I won't know what I am looking at. If the price is right, I'll drag it home, describe it to you, and suddenly discover what I found via your explanation! LOL

Has equipment been confiscated due to abuse and misuse, or something else? Non-licensed I understand.

Radio Free Europe was always a Godsend to listeners who managed a tiny transistor radio and could find one of those little batteries. They never transmitted, but would learn the truth of events in the world. Great groups of people would gather, as many as could feel safe sneaking along in the night or gathering in the back of a marketplace, and try to hear this tiny radio whispering truth to them. Learning of that might have been the beginning of my interest in HAM.

Another reason for my interest is knowing of all the times, especially in disasters, when HAM radios were the only way information could be transmitted to those who needed to know. HAM and MARS have been and continue to be an incredible blessing to so many people - I would be thrilled to help in that effort.

You refer to machines cobbled together from junk as a "problem" - why is that? I think it is terribly clever to be able to do that - it is beyond my talents and abilities so I would have to just buy things. And what you did with a wifi router - amazing! Not a clue how a person would do that, and what a great idea to have a disguise! I'd be all for a disguise of any equipment. Router, stereo, microwave, LOL, whatever!

Some of these are inexpensive - well under $100 for some. Is this better than a scanner? Both needed? [link to www.ebay.com (secure)]

You are amazing! I'm so grateful for your presence here, and your willingness to be so forthcoming with every sort of assistance! Thank you 4
 Quoting: Pooka


I knew what you meant but I didn't want anyone else reading the thread to have misconceptions :)

Even radio receivers have been historically confiscated by totalitarian regimes such as the Soviets and the Nazis. Under those governments you could only get radios that tuned into the 'proper' stations. Interestingly enough, the Soviets licensed hams but they were always under heavy scrutiny. The problem of being able to make your own equipment was always one of these idiotic regimes.

Scrolling through that link, the DX-394 has pretty good reviews on eham.net and is a pretty good price, the DX-100 and the Hallicrafters get beat up pretty bad in the reviews.
