Hi Everyone, I'm from New Zealand and planning to eventually move off grid eventually.... I'm sure you'll see me post around :)

There is (or was, don't know if it's still on other than in re-runs) a show on Food Network called "Chopped". The premise is that 4 chefs are given a basket of food and they have to prepare 1 of 3 meals using what's in the basket, along with a pantry of other fresh items.
There would be 3 rounds, appetizer, main dish & dessert.

Chopped - Survival will be similar but, sadly, there will be no $10,000 prize for...

Height = 5'9"
Weight = 180 but fluctuates between 180 and 190+ quite easily.
Pants = 34 (tight - open the top button at the end of the day)
Shirts = XL

Typical energy ebb and flow throughout the day.

Need to eat regularly or feel weak, shaky and irritable. Tired at the end of my busy day (99.5% office work).

Beginning to experience intermittent issues that could point to low(er) testosterone.

Generally feel unhealthy but not sure what to do about it. I eat...

I'm thinking it may be. I saw elk and coyotes (at least three) on my property today. This poop was all over in a certain area. Gah. Luckily I went over there to fix the front door of the cabin, so at least that secures shut now.

The killing continues, Cougar or other has taken 3 calves and this older cow.

This is the competition the "City Survivors" will be up against when they BUG OUT, eat or be eaten, other scavengers on another camera later.

Recently, we have become the target of zombies. The half-dead bastards sneak onto our property at night and steal from our out-buildings, break into our vehicles, and have attempted to gain access to the house a couple of times but have been dissuaded by the puppies and the alarm. One early evening last week, I went to a club to play some music but Jimi stayed home to read. Her car was next door at her mothers, so it appeared the house was empty. Neighbors noticed an orange Honda discharge...

The Deyo Food Storage Planner works in Excel (Although I recommend the free and open source LibreOffice for Win, Mac or Linux) ;) and is a straightforward, easy-to-use spreadsheet. All you need to do is fill in the number of family members and how many weeks you want to store; the worksheet will calculate the quantities needed.

Check out @Joe_Came_in's Tweet:

I received this from one of the guys on a gaming site. He is now a senior in a public high school but was home schooled from 1st thru 10th grade. I'm not disrespectful of home schooling. I just think the experience of these teens is interesting as well as their take on socialization and getting along with people who believe differently than you do.

Not sure you can see it in the...

When I was about 13 years old, just coming into womanhood, in a very ceremonial atmosphere, my mother presented me with a carefully typed manuscript which she had prepared on her old Royal typewriter. The document was "The Subjugation of Women" by John Stuart Mills which he wrote in 1861. She had bound it in a red satin ribbon and I knew immediately that it had great importance but at the time, I was too young to fully comprehend that she was telling me that the world would not treat me...

The word games are fun but learning never ends so lets expand upon the current games. This game takes @Pop_45 's thread with the progressive word game and expands that into using the word in a sentence correctly. As the word game goes the rules are the same: Start out at the beginning of the alphabet and works through all the letters till the end of the alphabet. Starting with two letter words. Once we go through the alphabet, we move on to three letter words. It keeps...

Or, if you don't have a Vacuum Sealer, what would you use it for?

Embarassing Discourse (that can be ignored) below
There's a link on SurvivalBlog to a great deal on a FoodSaver V2830 Vacuum Sealer Kit, so I thought to myself, "What a great deal for $60! I think I'll ask my wife...".

So I ask my wife, and she asks me: [insert sarcasm here] "What are you going to use it for?"

So I says to my wife, "Uhhh, vacuum sealing things like...

I've seen this question a lot in the forums:
The answers are wildly varied. So, I started thinking: What kind of hatchet is optimal for taking along on a pack? Can you get by with a small hatchet--maybe even a hawk, or do you need a trail axe? What's more useful: hatchet or saw? Do you need both? Keep in mind, these are my conclusions...I'm not interested in a debate of one over the...

Prologue (I)

From: Professor Scott Nordstrom, Dept. Of Xenobiology, Edinburgh University

Subject: The Vesy, Political Implications
Classification: Top Secret, Eyes-Only UK


As per your request, the Department has composed a long report based on our analysis of the reports from HMS Warspite. Data was, of course, limited; neither Warspite’s crew nor the Russian refugees were trained observers, let alone alien research specialists....

Aloha Monkeys,

I reckon this is where I will put all my "Fun and Stuff" from now on... and all the wild, weird and wonderful ideas, requests and challenges I get from my fellow Monkeys... Hope that works for everyone ;)

I'm an old fart and get bored easily... so I often have more than a couple things going on in my head and my shop at the same time... wonder how many of you are the same way ;)

So here's the first "Stuff"... Had this in the back of my mind for years and years.......

For decades I have heard gun owners claim that the government would never be able to confiscate our firearms because the government would lose too many men. The implication being, of course, that gun owners would actively resist confiscation, even to the point of shooting back. But I believe this thinking is outdated and doesn’t align very well with reality. But before you tell me how big your honor guard in Hell will be when that day comes, let’s think about...

New to the forum but hardly new. Looks like a lot of good information on this site. Looking forward to getting involved.

If anyone had a tax question post it here and I will try to answer it. I have been preparing taxes for over twenty years and if I do not know it I usually know where to look it up. There are many questions I can answer without having to know personal specifics thus violating opsec. This is my way of giving back to the monkey community.

edit: without violating opsec

Howdy all.

Martial Arts are kind of a curiosity of mine. And being a curiosity, I am naturally curious as to what everyone elses take on them are. Anybody have anything they want to share?
