That's why he said "enough survivors" . The Amish live in large groups and distribute manpower and resources.

They also have 19th century technology which makes them the fucking Jetsons compared to the Lykovs and their 7th century appliances.

Does anyone have experience or interest in building off-grid tiny homes? They are usually 100-300 sq/ft. made of found and recycled materials cheaply. Some run on solar and wind power. I work a part-time job and I'm thinking of starting a tiny house project. I can buy some materials and there's plenty of scrap around me to use. I have some carpentry skills and general know-how. Anyone interested in the tiny, minimal, cheap life?

water tank would be heated by the same rocket stove and it's act as energy reservuar so that you don't have to cook all day to keep steady temperature. Cold water tank above property for pressure is obvious. Electricity is precious if you are off grid. I won't live in a town, rather a spacious village if you will. Outdoor toilet won't pollute a spring c-mon. Winter being cold I agree, but that's better IMO than building toilets, plumbing, shit rezervuars under the house etc.

close, upstate ny. but you are right our situation are differnt. first off, im probably only 10 feet over the water table, id likely be going for a well... id rather not haw my sewage leaking into my drinking water even if i am filtering.


so every time you plan to take a shower in the summer you are going to heat a giant thermal mass? sounds a little silly.

im going to again suggest looking into composting toilets. if you are willing to shit into a hole in the ground you could at least consider a diy system where you just shit in a bucket and thow saw dust ontop then throw it out side in the compost heap youre likely to have. this beats shitting out side imo. but really how far back are you willing to go for a palce you plan to call home. what sort of investment and return do you want on this 10k in 3 years of lving? yea shit in a hole in the ground. if you plan on living here and investing money into this place for a distant future do not skip on the luxuries as a porcelain throne is wonderful after only 3 days of shitting in a porta-potties. maybe this makes me sound like some nyc yuppie, but its also what ive realized about what my build would need. you are totally fine with doing what you do we are just discussing ideas in general. i dont mean to come off as offensive or demeaning either, i enjoy this topic and would love to hear other peoples ideas on what to do as seeing as i havent even done it i dont know the best way my self

for those who go full-in-the-bag with this, as in no other property assets, I wonder what they do about costs for electricity and internet and water and bathing, but most of all funds for health emergencies (if you play to live past 65 then you will encounter them) and retirement.

It's almost revolutionary to do this

most people have a set of skills that allows them to do this ie being an artist or crafts person in traditional trade lets you make a good ammount of money with little over head. it also doesnt mean you cant have a traditional job. your home life i none of your bosses bussiness imo. they could even chop and sell wood from their land or even let people hunt it many options to make money to be honest. some people even host work shops on green building to show case what they do in order to raise funds.

most of this thread is talking about green energy (and poop). out side the cost of the equipment, panels pumps turbines ect, and replacing these there isnt much over head to these places. ive been talking a little bit about. the life style changes people will have to make.

you do have some over head, taxes and what not but most people are talking about growing their own food.

although you are correct, most people will not be able to do this on min income with out savings set aside and they will run into emergencies where they need money.

fun fact: in a properly built outhouse (or portapotty) if everyone closes the lid, all the smell vents out through that little chimney on top.

earthships have a pretty good water design, it goes drinking-[rock and plant filter]->showering/washing-[rock and plant filter]->toilet-[rock and plant filter]-> out into a leechfield lined with waterproof membrane, this water is used to sustain landscape plants and eventually makes its way back into the water table.

all this implies staying in one spot though.... if it were really a post-apoc scenario and you were moving around all the time i'd just stick with a camper, or if you insist on traveling in style, rig up a toilet that dumps to the street for emergencies.

I mean from my hands, not from the evidence. Obviously, cutting off my fingertips would work, but then I'm stuck answering "hey guy, why don't you have the ends of your fingers anymore?" with lies like "oh, my girlfriend was a sadistic body-mod domme and I just loved her sooooo much I went along with it" or "frostbite gonna bite ye, arr!" Some of the techniques I've heard is burning them off with acid, but that's likely to cause enough injury to require hospitalization (which, ironically, amputation wont), or freezing them off with dry ice. Suggest?

this is a decent idea. the only issue is a board grinds to a screeching halt as soon as a little rock jams a wheel. (/asp/ fags know)

I suggest getting a long board w/ the kevlar thing (also less work, less energy expended). there's also off-road wheels you can get for them. and extra bearings. they die eventually.

Chevy or Dodge van, late eighties to early nineties (they're roomier), with bulletproof glass, honeycombed tires, plating on the sides and bottom, plus extra protection around the engine and some steel storm shutters for the windows, doors, and tires, all accessible and used from the interior, and some spotlights on the side mirrors 5-0 style. A couple of solar panels for the roof, a multiple battery type charger that goes for cars, wall outlets, and USB as well as an emergency radio all in one, a HAM radio, a CB radio, my MP3 player/cell phone loaded with my apocalypse mix, my kindle (loaded with BSA handbooks, road atlases, Chilton's Manual for the van, that kind of thing), a portable DVD player with a fat stack of good flicks that can either directly use the solar panel or can be run off the charger, and cords to connect the lot to the radio in the van. Strip most of the interior, throw some hammocks up for sleeping, a lawn chair for sitting in, and a cot for relaxing prone/medical needs, shelving for food storage and other scavenged/scrounged/traded for items deemed necessary. A rain water collector that goes from the roof to a filter in the roof to the collection bucket inside, jerry tanks of gas on the trunk doors (or the doors where the trunk would be), along with a single speed bicycle with an electric motor conversion for sorties. And myself, of course.

most people don't do this, but you can clean and grease bearings to last significantly longer, but you're right about the long board thing, tho you could always put risers and big wheels on a smaller deck, for when you have to carry it around or store it, but a larger deck is definately more stable at higher speed.

the link shows a partly kevlar board ~prob not bulletproof~ but it has straps, which do enhance its defensive capabilities.

/law/ isn't as gung-ho about ditching the old ways, you know?

I ran into a bit of trouble with some loansharks who may also be well affiliated with the military and have access to government databases. How would I go about starting over without raising any flags? I haven't actually looked anything up yet, but I'm guessing it goes like this: 1) ditch everything from my old life that can be tied to me (done), 2) obtain new false birth record, 3) obtain new government ID with new false birth record, 4) lay low for the rest of my life and be chill. So then, how do I obtain a false birth record? Once that's done, getting a new gov. ID is easy peasy (birth record, plus 2 pieces of mail addressed to me = proof of residency and/or citizenship = good2go for a new ID card). There's also the ticklish business of obtaining a new social security number so I can get a job (thanks for fucking that up for everyone, Mexico). Any help you give me may implicate you in saving my life, which would be greatly appreciated.

Post Script: would assuming the identity of a deceased person be feasible these days? Do I need to find someone roughly my age? Does a death record go all the way up to the top (meaning, would it be obvious to anyone doing a routine check that the person I was assuming the identity of is actually dead and I'm an usurper?)

I don't know how many other females post or lurk /fo/ but I wanted to share some info. Maybe guys with girlfriends conscious of /fo/ things might benefit from this too.

I always wondered what the hell I would do if I had no more access to feminine products. I wondered what I would do if stores shut down and ran out of products, or if I had to suddenly leave and rough it for a while. One day while walking around my neighborhood, I stopped to pet a dog and chatted with the owner. She was a crafter. She sold hand made blankets, clothes, dolls, and other things. She brought up her current project was making crochet and knitted tampons and pads out of organic cotton. She was selling them as eco-friendly alternatives to commercial products since you could wash and reuse them plus boil them for sterilization. Most commercial pads and tampons aren't sterile, and each one creates a lot of waste. It was a weird conversation, but I walked away feeling better because I knew I could task myself in making some if I ever needed. Learning to crochet or knit isn't terribly hard, and the patterns you need to know to make these are pretty basic. All you need is yarn of some kind. And if society were to completely collapse, I guess you could always learn how to make yarn, cotton, wool, twine, or whatever as material. So gals, and guys with gals, look up how to make these and save yourself from bleeding all over everywhere when shit hits the fan.

Lady here, and I just wanted to second the diva cup. I went on a three week thru-hike and sure as hell did not want to carry giant packages of disposables with me. The diva cup was awesome and easy to clean. Also brought a reusable pad made with flannel, which can be washed after use. I don't use disposables any more at all honestly, it's nice not to have the waste and the reuseables are much more comfortable imo.
