Re: Would you consider a hover bike?

These things are where quadcopter drones where five years ago. I bet they will improve pretty fast. Probably have commercial level stuff in three years. Yes, these days collision avoidance and ground tracking has almost become standard equipment on 2017 drones. Even some pretty small drones have fo...

Re: Are guns nessisary to homestead?

a firearm clearly has its utility in a homestead or other situations. But I'm asking this, sincerely, not as a gotcha question, looking at the best modern examples of social unrest, in the US: King riots in Los Angeles, post-Katrina New Orleans, Superstorm Sandy, 2014 Ferguson MO and 2015 Baltimore...

Re: Are guns nessisary to homestead?

As for infrastructure being robust again all you have to do is look around to find areas in the US where that is not the case. If you ask people near the Oroville Dam I suspect that they would have a strong opinion in the matter. Similarly if you asked the folks in Flint, or the many other areas wh...

Are guns nessisary to homestead?

Marjory Wildcraft recently posted a video on this topic, and while it is likely preaching to the choir here on ZS, I felt it worth posting. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=knDT6Gw8Lo4 I will say I am of the opinion about guns that they are a tool just like a shovel or rake. Could you homestead withou...

Re: Would you consider a hover bike?

Colin Furze did it better 8-) I love Colin he is a mad genius, but I would be a lot more willing to try the Scorpion 3 hover bike than Colin's. While Colin put fan shrouds on his. His looks a lot less stable and a lot more dangerous. The Hoversurf folks have flight controllers that help stabilize a...

Re: Would you consider a hover bike?

About the test being indoors, yes there is some validity to this but they have also done outdoor tests. BTW keep an eye on the amount of air displacement that is cast upon tree leaves. You also mentioned ground effect, see how much these props are kicking up and how far away the air is being pushed....

good video about fishing lures for all fish

This video covers a small number of lures you can stock to pretty much cover your bases for catching fish anywhere. While there is no perfect single...

Re: Homestead land in the WA Okanogan

Yes I have looked into the Monolythic domes, they are rather expensive both in concrete costs and rebar costs. Plus you need to be able to get concrete trucks up to the sight, which is not so do able at the moment. If I were to do concrete I would likely opt for aircrete. Which mixes soap foam in wi...

Re: Homestead land in the WA Okanogan

I could just be tired(up for almost 30 hours now), but I don't see a real bedroom in the design. I also only see one bathroom area, and if the room directly in front of it might be a bedroom, any visitors who need to use the facilities will have to traipse thru it to do their "bidness". Perhaps a h...

So here is the current Sketchup of my house design https://i.postimg.cc/13Cbx591/floorplan-with-2nd-central-hex-1.jpg Sketchup has really been helping to get a clear idea of scale and how to arrange things.

Re: Which Caliber and Why?

Well let's see, I don't own anything but an AK and 1911 and a black powder revolver. I had other guns previously, but sold them off. So I would be grabbing either 7.62×39 or 45acp. Why? Because 9mm or .22 ain't gonna fit in my guns, so rather pointless to grab a handful of ammo that doesn't work for...
