orgprophet: spinifex ... you can not prep if you can not get things, when the gfc hit it was a liquidity issue ... banks stopped trusting other banks to be able to pay so the system was grinding to a halt .... when confidence erodes that credit no longer is issued to

orgprophet: other banks or other suppliers of goods, the shelves will become empty ... banks can become closed, credit cards all suspended ... and you will have to live on what you have available ... this happens when hyperinflation kicks in or confidence is lost

spinifex: A major storm front is supposed to lash South Oz this arvo. Winds to 120k. A good test for the pallet wrap hut!

WolfDen: Yeah sounds like good weather Spinifex!

spinifex: Getting some good rains now. Hope it extends to the dry areas 100km north of here - farms up there have been missing out a lot this winter and struggling to keep stock fed.

Beer! Yesterday we started making our own beer ... we feel better prepared already Also added an 8kva generator to our independence kit the other day ... would have liked it to be diesel and may eventually find one of those but for the time being it's petrol. Looking forwards to building our solar system this year.
Made a replacement self locking Cray snare out of stuff I had laying around. Curtain rod, brake cable from an old bike, an old 2 cent coin and a short piece of copper pipe. This time I painted it day-glo pink so when I drop it in the weeds its easy to find. This one has detachable, multi-position noose to help access to the most awkward crevices and holes.
Have mastered the art of making good felafel out of the chickpeas I collected a few weeks ago.
Serviced the car today. Saved a wad of cash in doing so. Put up shade sails on the western side of the house to keep the heat load down and save on power. I usually do that mid December but lapsed a bit this year.
Anyone got any good uses for used diesel engine oil? I've already painted all the fence posts around the home block twice!
I'd like to use it to fuel a forced air oil burner on my forge but not sure how to go about it yet.
