Re: Is NYC Going Bankrupt?

From my perspective in eastern Kansas the economy has been booming. Housing prices are increasing in the double-digits percentages indicating significant demand, new business are going in -- I've seen a lot of cranes, one company recently completed a $200M expansion with plans for further expansion...

Re: The Ongoing Man Made Opiod Catastrophe

I see where everyone is coming from. It’s a heated topic, one that many don’t really see eye to eye. I posted something in this forum a while ago (couple years ago actually) where I said opioids are a major issue. I wasn’t belittled directly, however I was told “it’s not a big deal”. Fast forward a ...

Re: We need to up our bush shelter game folks

Awesome you guys are getting into it. I am visiting family, which is part of why I have suddenly become so much more active online having access to the internet in abundance here. But once I get home to my 40 acres, I will be scouting places to start working on bush shelters as well. Now I will be ...

Re: Is NYC Going Bankrupt?

When topics like this come up, I love bringing up Kansas. How did it fare when it cut taxes to attract outside investment. I also recall many saying that California was doom, it was going to literally collapse because I’d the debt, yet they raised some taxes and now are running a surplus. Not to men...

Re: We need to up our bush shelter game folks

I’ve only got 5 acres, but I have convinced the GF that we should make a primitive camp at the bottom of the property for “camping adventures” she’s down. I told her it would have to be done with hand tools and we’d have to spend the knight in them. So we’ll see. We are going to clear an area first ...

Re: We need to up our bush shelter game folks

I went through a period of watching a TON of Filipino guys. The only one I still watch is the “Peimitive Skills” guy. Because I like that he actually tries to run a homestead. The “Primitive Technology” guy hasn’t been updating as much as he used to. Used to updated in the first week of the month, b...

Re: Lets Talk: Air Rifles!

I love that this thread is being kept alive.

I’m sad I didn’t get to get to use my bonus on a PCP. Far to many other things, but it will be something I start throwing into savings to buy, along with all the gear.

Re: Water, water everywhere but not a drop to drink

Our well water is quite amazing so I actually don’t mind drinking plain water. However I do love tea (I hate coffee, fight me!) but I’m a bit of a snob. I love oolong loose leaf tea. The issue with loose leaf is it has to be stored very well or it can go bad. The gf just quit her coffee habit in fav...

Re: Apartment heating

Years ago when we lost power we used plastic sheeting to enclose a room that had a fireplace (not a forced air type) and just kept a small fire going all the time the rest of the house had a couple small propane heaters to keep it above freezing. It worked well, but no idea. In an apartment I would ...

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

You might want to use a site like them to check prices before buying. Yeah, at the end of the day I don't think a $25-$50 loss is going to kill any of us but it adds up quick with larger quantities and with centerfire cartridges. Just updated with rebate comes in at .027 per rd, I just completely f...

Re: Halfapint's Getting Some Land

Snowpoclypse happened. We gor over 16” of snow on the property. Which doesn’t sound like a lot but when the hill coming up to the property is 19% grade and about 200’ of elevation gain. It makes for a bit of a pain in the ass. We actually didn’t do shit, I went up to help clear snow so grandparents ...
