SA Hunter: 20.4mm rain so far this week. Unfortunately a lot of places in SA didn't get a drop.

spinifex: Fingers crossed for another 20-30mm in the next week! At least its enough to get some paddock feed germinating and some early sown oats and canola up and running. We have some adult chooks that have never seen rain before. They are confused.

spinifex: If you listen carefully you'll hear a couple hundred thousand collective horsepower of tractor and the whine of air-seeder fans running thru the night.

SA Hunter: Yeah, they are madly seedling atm. How are you? Hiya Rem.

spinifex: Peachy. I've been impersonating a vampire today. Sucking blood out of livestock for testing.

Joey: Supposed to rain for 4 days where I am starting tomorrow. Will be interesting to see how much rain I get out of the TC Ann by the time its effects reach the Qld coast

SA Hunter: Got the weekend off, so, 15-18mm rain forecast. Oh well! Guess I'll get wet at my bol!

WolfDen: Have fun SA haha

spinifex: Wild mushroom season has started here. Surprised any have come up given the long dry spell we've had.

jonasparker: Looks like you all had a really good election down there!
May 19, 2019 3:16:23 GMT 10
WolfDen: Yep and it was a good result in the end

spinifex: power failure here for the last 15 hours. I must have pre-visioned it as I actually had my gen set out yesterday morning giving it a run for the first time in perhaps a year and doing some critical maintenance on it so it starts first pull.

milspec: Great timing Spinifex
May 19, 2019 10:35:21 GMT 10
spinifex: Spent an hour getting an elderly relations gen-set running. New B&S engines are less tolerant of old fuel than 20 year old Honda engines. Required complete fuel drain before start. Now ready for a night with high wind that might cause more black-outs

WolfDen: I hope everyone enjoys their Friday! Looking forward to the weekend! Hope everyone has a good'n!

Excellent, how have you found the timber cladding for insulation value? Last container I set up in the SW of WA I used vinyl insulated cladding and an insulated tropical roof. Sealed up it wouldnt go above 22 celcius when ambient was above 40 www.mittenvinyl.com.au/products/cambridge
I've been criticised before for running threads on my retreat, accused of lacking judgement on persec and/or boasting about my progress, but I firmly believe threads like this inspire others, so well done Grey.
Yeah it's a toss up between OP/PERSEC and sharing what can be done.
Are there people out there taking notes so they know who to raid? Maybe, but I really doubt it and they would have to live pretty close by post-SHTF to have a chance of getting here. AFAIK only a couple of people know where I am, yes I could be found but who is going to go to that much trouble?
