Re: Land or RV Solar

This to me seems like a classic win/win situation. Either route you are going to be better off than you are right now. On the one hand, land is a great choice. Land is the only thing we aren't making more of, which makes it a great investment. On the other hand, being off the grid will help you in e...

Re: You hurt your hand/arm... Now what?

It took 6 weeks for the bone to heal and another 2 weeks for my muscle mass to come back enough to use my arm. It was amazing to me how much of a hinderance the loss of an arm was. You don't r...

Re: solar power for about $600

Although solar is sexy right now, most people would benefit more from conservation first. Cutting your energy bill with efficient windows, doors, energy star appliances, lighting, adding insulation, etc. I built a small energy efficient home using standard materials and my energy usage is a tiny fr...

Re: Attempted mugging - situational awareness

Perfect example of situational awareness. Good job. Reguardless of how it could of played out, I think you did the right thing. Someone tried to mug my Mom the other day. She was on her putting groceries in her trunk and someone tried to rip her purse out of her hands. All he managed to do was spin ...

A perfect example of why it is illegal to yell fire in a crowd. Crowds can turn crazy in a matter of seconds. +1 for situational awareness.
