The Front Porch / Ice Age Farmer: Introduction
« Last post by Ice Age Farmer on Today at 08:47:24 PM »
Hi folks,

Long time listener, first time poster. 

First, I'd like to extend a greeting to a community here that I respect the hell out of.  Great to be here.

Second, inspired by Jack and others, I’ve finally started a podcast of my own, called the "Ice Age Farmer [IAF] Podcast."  IAF encourages people to grow and store their own food to ensure their food security in the times ahead.  (As we know, there are plenty of good reasons to do this, but I speak specifically to the need to grow our own food as traditional agriculture falters, thanks to the rapid climate change we're enduring as we enter an extended solar minimum.)

So, this post is also an invitation to those who watch space weather & solar cycles, suspicious0bservers & Adapt2030, or just wonder why they are making it ILLEGAL to question anthropogenic global warming -- Truth fears no inquiry! 

There are PLENTY of problems that we need to solve in order to ensure our food security as the climate changes, and I look forward to working with you to find those solutions. I know this community has a wealth of talent and experience, and really hope to start some fun discussions and drive creative solutions here. 

I'm also happy to answer questions, perhaps in a new thread that makes more sense.

Cheers.

Christian/IAF

It's going to be interesting to see what uses turn up for these bands.  I'm not diving in yet, but hats off to you BE.  Keep us posted on what turns up.

Every man needs to find his own balance here.  There's no SWR meter for domestic tranquility.
True, true.  And it's way too easy to get burned in the finals.

Bought a high output single burner stove. For when I get back to brewing, when I finally get good at catching crayfish at the lake, and for when the power's off.

I have a knock-off brand that's similar in construction, but not stainless :(

Mine has some grippy paint finish and gets absolutely filthy from boil-overs.  It does 30,000 BTU and has served it's purpose.
if/when it dies I'd like a stainless finish, as I think it'd fight off corrosion better.

Makes a good steam generator for bending wood too.

Here is a video from "Tips from a Shipwright" on steaming wood without a steambox.

I love that guy. I aspire to be nearly that talented and yet know I won't.
