This is Farmer Hogeye from east Texas with the Red Wattle Pigs.

Thoroughly enjoyed the 2018 Workshop at 9 Mile farm. Had a great time and got to match names to faces. Shared a lot of stories and got a lot of good ideas. The name & info list I was preparing has been completed. Check your email for the list of contacts and a link to the photos.

Let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.

Good day to all, with a little help from admin I was actually able to get through the security hoops to join this forum!!! Thank you to admin for giving me a leg up :)
My name is Keith, I live off grid in a forest in New England Australia. I lived without electricity for over 20 years, but now we have solar power. I am an 18th century living historian & experimental archaeologist, a primitive skills instructor retired; I only teach through videos & articles now. I am a writer & book author. I enjoy living on the land. I do have modern guns, but my preference for survival is muzzle-loaders & other primitive tools. I do NOT consider myself an expert at anything, there is always more to learn.
Regards, Keith.

Hello Keith, and welcome aboard.  It sounds like you have a good set of practical skills, and will fit right in here.  Tell us about your solar power system when you get a chance.  Anyone who's doing this off-grid is interesting to listen to.  Also, has the ABC's discontinuation of shortwave service this past year affected things in your area?

Welcome Keith. It will be interesting to hear your experiences. Food preparing, preserving, acquiring, etc. And of course, anything else off grid related.  ;D

10 years ago today I joined, I left probably 6 or 7 years ago and now I am back.

I randomly decided to log back in, to see what has been happening (I just listened to Jack on the man over the wall) and wouldn't you know, its been 10 years to the day since I first joined.
I haven't listened to a podcast for about 6 years, but with my growing maturity, I have started seeing signs that maybe it wouldn't hurt to see what some of the experts I used to listen to are saying, specifically a duck farmer that has had some good ideas in the past.

So here I am, back again and starting from day one of the podcasts. Any recommended ones or should I really just burn through them all. I've got the time....mostly.

Welcome back, CMBS.  So much has changed, so much is the same.

Glad you're here, CMBS. I'd just recommend that you read the program notes and see if the topics are of interest to you... I'm not so interested in the call-in shows or the expert council shows... but those shows are very popular with a lot of folks, so... ymmv.
