Sorry I know I have gotten away from the Survival aspect of my blog but Tyranny makes me crazy! Since I have two other blogs I will try to get back on track here. I see a lot of folks are stopping by by and reading anyway.If you want to keep up with the rantings of myself on patriot related topics.
I don't know whats coming in the near future,I am pretty certain the police state will keep expanding and the economy will keep getting worse. I am not an economist merely a regular guy trying to make sense of it all. Our dollars are worth less each day,more jobs go overseas or just disappear every day. Govt programs continue on everyday. So I really don't see How things can get better economically? All we can do is prepare for whats coming. Now just because the economy as a whole is bad doesn't mean you have to suffer because for now there are resources available to help us prosper.

Once I find my cheap junk land hopefully in a no code area. I'm gonna build with some alternative source possibly cord wood, or now thanks to Muddome possibly earth bags with a lot of mass and with a rocket stove for heat and hot water.
So hopefully I live long enough to see that dream come true!
Skills will possibly be more important than ever in the coming days,skills we once had but have lost in the Technology age.
A couple on earth bag construction if you aren't familiar already.
Muddomes blog. He talks like me (cussing)...
And his MRS. She doesn't talk like us! (no cussing).
What a lucky man to have woman who would not only build like this out in the Canadian boonies but actually help and like it! Lucky man Indeed! So check them for ideas.
Metalcasting,building, two skills may that may be rather helpful! As a slight update our Buddy Dio is not above making stuff on his own the dude has skills for sure. Here he shows low tech but working oven to melt metal. See it can be done on the cheap!
