    So, how do you store them? I saw they mentioned drying them so they could be used as food in the winter months. But how would you go about doing that? I assume you have to kill the little critters...

    The place I live right now is in a neighborhood on a postage-sized lot, so no homesteading here. I plan to sell this place within 2 years and use the equity and my savings to purchase a modest...

    I think the best way to prevent a goose attack is to cook the darn thing and serve it for dinner. I've yet to be attacked by a cooked goose. lol.

    I'll be using septic for waste, a well for freshwater supply, and alternative power backed up by a diesel generator, so hopefully I won't have to deal with this.

    On a side note, that valve you're...

    Hmmm. A situation where you couldn't leave could turn bad. As in your example of drifting in a life raft in the middle of the ocean. What if they were going to vote on who is going to become...

    Great thread, folks.

    I wouldn't choose to lead a group. I'd rather have someone else lead; take responsibility for the lives of those in the group. The only way I'd lead is if I were asked to...

    I've even seen an option for charging larger batteries with a stationary bike/generator. Put the kids on it for a few hours per day and you can watch some TV. Oh, and it's never a good idea to stop...
