I purchased this primarily to feel a degree of control should the SHTF, and it looks more and more likely every day.

This is an advertisement for No Grid Survival Projects. Truly this is a value for value proposition.

    This adds so much to my consortium. Ordered. Thanks much for the post.
    We've already done so much of this over the past two years.
    Yesterday I found a source for food grade 55 gal drums. Requested a dozen. Free.
    This past week I contacted a number of remodelers and requested they notify me of any large windows or patio door repalcements....I'll take the "scrap". Tempered glass green houses.
    Large truck wheels make great small space wood heaters when welded into a stack and baffled. Have ample source as a friend is a "scrapper". If enough copper tube is wound around the assembly we can distill clean water...or make a small steam generator. Caution on the latter, a couple of pressure relief valves are necessary.

      I'm waiting on the paperback but I've watched the videos. They host does a very good job of explaining (not telling) what is needed and why to someone like me, essentially a moderately capable homeowner. It has allowed me to feel a little more in control in my immediate surroundings.

      The author puts way too much info and explains it too well not to share.

        I have had profound fortune of circumstance. First, a refutation of formal schooling. Second, a vocational passion to make things, hundreds of gizmos and gadgets. Third, a never ending pursuit of personal philosophy.

        Shifting, buffeted, whirled about in these trying times has not taken me unaware. A bit under prepared most definitely. We, collectively, as a nation, have been so indulged in our wealth and comfort distractions for the past 70 years that assumption, the bane of our kind, is producing it's fruit. I wonder sometimes if my life would be much different if I'd not seen Future Shock when I was 9. "Too much change in too little time. And for those who are not prepared, the effects will be devastating."

        Perhaps this set the tone for the reading from age 12 to 16. Lots of dystopia or the "what if" of all the sci-fi. The best of the 50's was at my finger tips. Everything I earned went to purchasing books, some 150 over 5 years might be on the modest side. Burroughs, Tolkien, Cherryh, Niven, Asimov, Clarke, Bradbury, Heinlein, Vonnegut, Simak, Van Vogt, Tao te' Ching and Rand....the names run like water, impressions lifelong from an adolescent mind-sponge. Then it was fun. To imagine possibility and probability was the never ending next horizon of learning.

        Rumspringa is over. The more gentle folk of the earth are my church. I have the profound fortune of circumstance that I lived rural until I was 10 and was still practicing well into my 20's. I have a knowledge of something to which I can return to with reasonable surety. How many millions have only seen a glimpse of this, or heard brief narrative from their "devices"? This surety for me is a great unknown for the urban raised. So much fear building, turning to uncertainty, to frustration, to anger, intentionally prodded.

        Gulch well and prosper. You offered life today, "John".
