Picked the last of the peppers. I pulled the plants even though they are still flowering. Freeze will probably do them in in a few days.

Wife is prepping the last of the peppers for the dehydrator
It's funny you say that.  I was talking to a LEO at the range yesterday and his perspective was that the defund the police movement was not to eliminate police but to replace them with secret police who are not beholden to the police oath and do not follow due process.  Yanking licenses in this way definitely violates due process and is unconstitutional.

 That's messed up but makes sense. You should post any articles on that if you have some. I had not heard of that but I like to have stuff to counter the masks are no big deal narrative
Homesteading and Self Reliant Living / Thoughts on Alaska
« Last post by surfivor on Today at 03:44:23 AM »
I had thought maybe I wanted to live in Alaska when I was a teenager but later in life I thought it was much too cold and too many dangerous bears. I don't really like being isolated out in the wilderness either or so I thought

With this covid stuff going on and uncertainty where it all leads to, I have been researching Alaska living as a kind of distraction or just something else to look at because I get tired or depressed from the political and covid news.

I do think that Alaska has the best opportunity for living off the land to a greater extent. There seems to be plenty of big fish and game animals.

I would definitely want a snowmobile, maybe a small motor boat. I guess in the dark part of winter maybe you read books. I think I would want to live close to some small village or maybe make some friends to go out into the Bush. I don't know if I would want to spend too much time by myself in the deep wilderness unless I could get used to it. With this covid thing and other unknowns in out world maybe even being lonely out in the wilderness would be preferable so who knows for sure. I mean how far can this covid and covid mentality go or something similar I have to wonder but it seems potentially maddening if you ask me

So I guess what I am asking is does anyone have any other ideas. The Wilson 1000 is to tall to be practical to be on top of the center of my roof. Does anyone have a better idea or maybe the little will is supposed to be sufficient.
Through diligent testing and research, it has been proven that Berkey water filters remove viruses to purification standards, pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites to undetectable levels, and harmful or unwanted chemicals to below detectable levels. Until these test results were made public, words like non-detectable were seldom if ever used to describe the abilities of a water filter to remove harmful pollutants.

The filters in the Berkey system not only took the industry by storm with these unheard of benefits but also added the ability to reduce toxic heavy metals such as lead and mercury without removing the beneficial and nutritional minerals needed to support a healthy body and mind. Review and compare the ability of the unique Berkey Water Filter to Brita, Aquasana, Pur, Katadyn or bottled water and see for yourself what we have to offer and why we dominate the portable water filter industry.

Edged Weapons and Tools / Re: What knife are you carrying now?
« Last post by David in MN on Yesterday at 04:09:26 PM »
I did it again. I bought a Kizer Vanguard Sheepdog XL.

But here me out... This is a dedicated travel cooking knife. As soon as I saw the shape of it I realized it would never do for EDC (for me) but since I tend to do a lot of things that see men end up in AirBNBs, hunting camps, and ice fishing shacks having a food prep folder makes a lot of sense to me. It's way too heavy for the dedicated backpacker but for my uses it's about right.

It's not what I would call a good pocketknife but if you really want a portable chef knife it kind of fits that niche really well. Even holds like a real chef knife.

We do the same. Laying on screen wire outside for a while, then move them into the shop still on screen wire.

Made forms and poured concrete around the posts on the new woodshed.

Harvesting walnuts every day lately...trying to dry them, but they still catch mold...we crack them and only dry the nuts themselves to save them. Same happened last year, they start to mold no matter what we did...we have them on metal screens in wooden frames, all open to airflow...anyone has advice? My cousin rinses walnuts with bleach, which I don't really want, but it really sucks discarding baskets of molten walnuts that we couldn't crack fast enough.
