Dumpster Divers are just the vanguards of our post-apocalyptic future. Yes/No?

no because dumpsters will stop being filled after the apocalypse and will likely be looted by panicking survivors in less than a week

No, they're poor and/or cheap. I know because I've done it. The only real skill learned is you know where to find the good stuff but in SHTF as >>13044 points out that is kind of useless.

I think it does teach a FEW other points. You learn what to watch out for in "out of date" food, that is still safe to eat.

Being a diver myself, it gives you a chance to gain a trait to see things that you may need or use. It also in a way trains you to know how to pull the useful/valuable things out of a heap of otherwise shit

NB, but anyone else notices how awesome of a shelter a clean dumpster would make in post-apocalypse?

Man it's fucking hard to see and get out of those fucking things. But if you find a dumpster with windows and a wood stove let me know

I suppose you could ring a bunch of them up to make the walls of some sort of post-apocalyptic dumpster fortress. But living in one longer than a night or two would kind of suck.

This underground book, originally a Zine published by Crimethinc, is a semi-autobiographical manual on how to get from one end of America to the other, dumpster diving, shoplifting, hitchhiking, squatting and hopping trains.

Needless to say, you need skills like Solid Snake to thrive in that lifestyle.

im not one to dumpster dive for food, but other items ? have a ball baby.

i once lived in a lower-class apartment complex, in kansas, and in those two years, i collected a plethora of stuff, and saw much more go to waste.

microwaves regularly went to the curb, which are good for things like digital displays, capacitors, magnetrons, wires, metal paneling, ect ect

clothes which only needed a good soaking and a second wash (i myself got pairs of jeans, some shirts, dresses and skirts, and purses from the 'big green box')

bicycles with flat tires, rusted chains, and loose handlebar collars (not to be racist, but it seems to me that black youth really don't appreciate the concept of basic to moderate bicycle maintenance. with 50 bucks for replacement chains and tires, and maybe 2 hours of work, they could have kept their bike.)

older books whose pages had only started to yellow

older computers (i have 3 shells of beige towers which got refurbished and upgraded enough to have decent running speed/processing power circa year 2000)

in cases of eviction (fairly often at this particular complex), whole apartments worth of stuff ended up in the get-it-gone; still good furniture, clothes, toys, books, TV's and electronics, bedding, hand-tools, decorative paintings (mostly of jesus, rather unsurprising, considering the demographic/ geographical area),

small musical instruments (cheap pvc recorders and the like, no expensive stuff like synthesizers or violins, unfortunately)

.......theres alot of stuff that ended up on the curb, that coulda gone to someone else, if only it had a chance at a thrift shop instead of a trash box.

I too lived in a lower-class apartment complex in Kansas for many years. The shit people throw out around here is just incredible. Kansans are incredibly wasteful assholes. I once found a working arcade machine that had literally been thrown to the curb simply because the dumbass had left it on for years without playing it and the start screen had burned into the monitor. I fixed the monitor and made $800 off that bitch. One man's trash truly is another man's treasure.

You've posted that story before. But that doesn't diminish how fucked up/dumb they were. I think arcade machines very likely have started appreciating in value and this guy quite possibly hadn't realised yet.

What is the actual conclusion of this piece of writing?

I am about 25% through it and swing between thinking it is pretty decent and actually saying something - and thinking the guy is a bit of a twat.

I will give it the time though, pretty engaging.

Also, just ordered a copy of 'The Jungle' - looking forward to that

To be fair you can get a second hand bike for less than that on gumtree/craiglist. And if that was a cheap second hand bike (more likely in poor neighbourhoods) then it's not worth spending twice the value of the bike on a new chain.

It's a pretty vibrant place, I'm not sure of the best way to sum it up. My favorite part about it is you can drive any direction and just hike in the woods.
I think there are a few local subculture /fo/ish groups. Lots of stoners, college kids, conservative baby boomers, and a bunch of others.
it has variety for how small it is, compared to some of the other cities.
One can buy some land in the mountains appropriately distanced from town

Nice. How is the gardening potential there? I live where it gets equally cold, long winters but it's humid and gets over twice the amount of yearly rainfall as that area. I mean, I know it can be done but I've heard most people rely on greenhouses and constant waterings.

One of its local nicknames is the "garden city." A pretty decent amount of people garden here, I personally don't know a ton about it but I know it's not too bad of a place to grow stuff.

Awesome. I'm really huge into gardening, permaculture, and sustainability. The mountains of Montana call to me, I'm not sure why. I'm looking to travel a bit and test waters for good places to relocate. From all things I have heard, Montana sounds like it's beautiful, with nice and independent people, lots of nature, but really low professional wages. But if I can provide food and shelter and make ends meet with an online job, then maybe it won't be so bad.

yes, housing in missoula is also a bit pricy. it's possibly the biggest downfall, i would definitely look around to make sure you get the best for your money, unless you go some other route for shelter.

I've always wondered why the go-to for tiny meme houses is shipping containers instead of dumpsters. Shipping containers are surprisingly expensive, and you have to call a manufacturer of them to get one since shipping companies re-use them until they fall apart.

Dumpsters, though, fuck it. Go to a demolition site and just steal one. They have wheels, even! And they're thicker-walled, and not that small. Even smaller dumpsters for apartment buildings and restaurants would make decent shelters if you got a few of them and joined them somehow, and you can transport them much more easily.
