New Section Suggestion?
#1
Something popped into my pointy little head tonight for a new section (or subsection) here that I really think would fit in with the spirit and the type people that frequent this place:

Off the grid

Now before anyone says that is survivalist stuff I beg to differ. I have (almost) no interest in the normal survivalist stuff but I am passionate about getting my home and family self sufficient.

I really think it would fit well and would get quite a bit of traffic, just like getting government out of our firearms we also want government and corporations out of our lives (and check books)

I also know people like Matt (/dev/null) and Ed Stephan are really big into this, and I bet a lot of other members either are into it or would be damn interested to learn how to do it.

You mean like a little "prepper" sub section...........I could go for that. Great idea Dave but a prepping section is already here.

Can you be a little bit more specific?

I hadn't thought about the 'prepper' tie in but yeah I guess that does work.

What I am talking about is more or less a 'how do I' section, like creating your own electricity etc etc

That could fit in nicely as a Prepping sub forum if that would be ok? I'd also like to hear from or forum moderator, Streaker with his thoughts.

Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, "Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals ... Now did the Lord say, "First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."

That would be cool but can we NOT pigeon hole it by calling it 'prepper'. After that show last year the term really has a bad connotation.

I really like 'off the grid'

I think either a sub section or an entire different section would have the same effect. It only takes a little getting used to imo.
Streaker would have a field day in that section................most likely he will forget about all the rest and bore us to death again with his canning........Big GrinBig GrinBig GrinBig Grin

Well what I am personally interested in (and I think others would be) are things like making your own electricity, heating your entire home via different ways, things like that.

It really fits in with the 'patriot' and independent nature of most people we have here.

Tossing around ideas about 'how to' or 'can it be done' ... hell I have two projects right now I am thinking about doing that would get the section going quickly.

Great Idea -- "Off the Grid"

I know there must be 100 easy and inexpensive things we can all do to lessen our foot prints on the Grid and it really is Part 2 of
Prepping.....

I object!

I need you people to use MORE electricity, not cut back! My company announced today that due to wholesale electric prices being in the dirt, as well as demand, that our 401K matching, raises, and bonuses are going to be cut in the coming year.

Please! Turn on your lights, for my sake!
