Re: THE STRANGE DEAD series by David Dunwoody

Perhaps it would help if you posted the first couple chapters here to whet the appetite of prospective buyers?

Just trying to assist.

Re: So I am taking the plunge for a carry permit. Holsters?

I like the SwapRig Revolution, it uses interchangeable Kydex pistol "skins" on a leather backing plate. A Kydex panel can also be inserted for additional stiffness if you prefer. I bought it awhile ago and have been using it every day. Very happy with it so far. I can wear it IWB or OWB if I prefer,...

Re: Homestead Rescue new "reality" TV show

I watched both eps. If you go in with the premise that 90% of what is shown is mostly bullshit then it becomes more enjoyable. I would NEVER homestead where there was no easily accessible water, that is just setting yourself up for eventual fail. About the greenhouse built into the hill, I was think...

Re: Gearbest = Fun little site to shop on.

There is a site I've been buying from somewhat regularly that seems even cheaper than Gearbeast for quite a few items, and their inventory is truly fucking VAST. It's called https://geek.wish.com/, shipping varies but averages a buck or two, and there are some very good deals. My wife likes to buy c...

Re: So I made a smoker today...

You could always use a 5-gallon plastic bucket from Home Despot/Lowes. Cheap, lightweight, easily replaceable, carries a good amount of kit and can be used as a stool. To turn it into a smoker I'd drill a hole in the bottom, slap a bolt/nut/washer in it. Flip the bucket upside down and put it on the...

Re: Looking for some ideas for a homestead pickup

The rancher actually suggested, park my truck at the bottom next to his place and use a snow mobile to access my property. That doesn't sound like a half bad idea, but on the one hand I'd be worried about how hard that would make it for life and house-saving emergency vehicles to get you in time if...

Re: Looking for some ideas for a homestead pickup

Lots of good vehicle advice on here from folks who know their shit. My very tiny contribution is that if you can get a flatbed diesel 4x4 truck with a crew cab, that would be the ticket. Being able to carry a full load of cargo and passengers(if needed) would come in very handy I would think. Good l...

I originally went with the Para because of capacity, but now that is a little less important to me. Basically, I am sick of ...
