Path to self sufficiency
« on: January 31, 2014, 11:43:00 PM »
This is a section of playlists for do it yourself projects, before the SHTF at your retreat or BOL. These are just starting points, everyone has to begin someplace, and will progress to higher levels over time.

On the agenda for Feb 1- making your portable forge
                              Feb 2- building a horse drawn logging sledge ( starting with part 1)
                              Feb 3- harnessing the horse
                              Feb 4- making charcoal for the forge
                              Feb 5- lighting and maintaining heat in the forge

I'll see where the interest level is at and will either continue on these subjects or not. I was hoping to get into tool and knife making in about 6-7 video's. And with the horses breaking in about 8 video's time, if you think that you should ignore the basics with them then don't bother buying or owning one, vet and farrier bills can run you into a couple thousand a year if youre not doing things right.

All that being said, thanks for all of your support and don't forget to subscribe.

Ok some new ones up:

Animals  at the retreat

Horse sleigh and portable forge

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EpLGGCgcnZA&list=PL5tOrPFDvkjLzyib-uAVw19prEv1fTOuv

The forge is simple to make, just take your time and don't build it too big, you're not making ship's anchors.
The sleigh when complete, can be used for hauling almost anything with your quad, UTV, horse, or pickup. I will put a removable wheeled platform under it in the summer. Enjoy and give me some feed back...

Blowing up beaver dams up close and personal

The dam was over 1/2 mile long and was causing road and property damage just 2 miles to the south of me this spring.
