Where’s the Survival and Living Off The Land Information?

I’ll tell you where it is. It’s in my head. And in the heads of others who kept their eyes open and planned ahead.

There is no use in trying to learn now. If you don’t already know how to survive it is too late. The final steps are already in motion.

It has been building up for a long time.

Then the whole covid response was just a practice salvo. First to get rid of Trump, who threatened to expose all their plans.
But they also wanted to see if they could manipulate people to turn on their neighbors and strangers in stores. The whole masking fraud was a great success. The propaganda machines did such a wonderful job of sending people into a panic over a disease with well over 99.5% survival. They lied to people and got them to say things like “if you don’t mask up you want to kill grandma” or “if you don’t get the experimental jab you want to kill grandma”. Yes, there is an easily identifiable risk group, including some grandmas. And those are the ones who should have been protected. Not by locking up and putting useless masks on the healthy. And not only was the mask useless, now they are finally admitting the jabs are useless in spreading it. The “fully vaccinated” can not only get covid but can spread it. So all these idiots who think they are so smart are out spreading the disease to the very at risk people they claimed to care about.

And these are the same people attacking family, neighbors and strangers for not wearing useless masks. The East German Stasi would be proud of our corporate governments ability to turn everybody into snitches. Many even actually called the police on “wrong thinkers”.

So, to follow-up on the success of the covid response experiment they have now turned to those who didn’t buy into the covid BS.

After over 8 years a terrible corrupt Ukraine government supporting the terrorizing and slaughter of ethnic Russians in the Donbas region by self-described Nazi militias, the Russians finally took action to protect their relatives but also to stop the extremist NATO expansionism after Ukraine (pushed by the US who runs the puppet Zelinsky) backed out on it’s agreement to remain neutral. The propaganda machines turned toward the “conservative” war lovers and got them to praise a country whose government was put in place by the CIA and was the number one money laundering point for the Bidens, Romneys, Pelosis’ and every other corrupt US official. They did it easily by claiming that if you don’t love the corrupt Ukrainians (who helped set up the fake impeachment of Trump over a phone call) then you have to love Putin.

That’s like someone saying during WW2 that if you don’t love Stalin you must love Hitler. Thinking people can see they are both trash.

So now they have found a way to get a majority to voluntarily destroy their lives, their finances, and the entire world economy.

And on the side they are shutting down all means off American self-reliance.

Shutting down energy independence ,
Shutting down the supply chain.
Shutting down fertilizer supplies.
Destroying the value of the dollar with inflation caused by insane printing of money to send to countries we have no business sticking our noses into.
Now they are culling millions of chickens and claiming it is because or avian flu. They are using the same PCR test for avian flu that they used to come up with huge overstatements of covid cases. PCR only show the presence of a virus. Not what specific virus. But based on this faulty test if one chicken tests positive they a killing millions. Supposedly to keep millions from dying. They think we are stupid. And a large part of the country is proving them right.

And the group of unelected manipulators meeting in Davos (or is it Thanos?) no longer even try to hide their plan. They state outright that they want to immensely reduce the population.
And their way is by disease (man-made) and the now orchestrated starvation.

And most people are distracted by the “bread and circuses” provided to keep them fat, dumb and happy.

So, I am black-pilled. I no longer care to try to teach people how to survive the coming orchestrated collapse. Most of them are not going to survive. So why should I teach others how to find food when everything collapses.

I am taking care of my own.

As the great philosopher Pete Townsend said:
“I’ll move myself and my family aside
If we happen to be left half alive”

“We’ll be fighting in the streets
With our children at our feet
And the morals that they worship will be gone
And the men who spurred us on
Sit in judgment of all wrong
They decide and the shotgun sings the song”

Starting Plants Off-Grid

I am in the process of preparing my garden.
This procedure will not be very primitive. This is for my food, not as a demonstration of primitive living.
If I were doing this primitive I would not be using store bought items. And the seeds would be started using only sun light through my window. But since I needed to do this anyway I decision to document it.
There is still snow on the ground so I am starting my plants inside my camper.
The camper is much easier to use than my cabin because it has much more sun exposure and a table already next to the largest window.
And I can easily connects to the solar batteries to run the grow light.
So I started by setting out my flat and filling with potting soil.

Next I decided to build a grow light system that can run off of my batteries instead of using a 119vac inverter.
So I used several 5 volt LED grow light strips and mounted them on a board covered with foil.

The LED strips have usb connectors and a 4, 8 or 12 hour timer. These strips are very inexpensive. Like 5 bucks each. And use very low power.

You can’t tell from the photo but they are very bright and the LEDs are made from a set of frequencies best for starting plants.

I’ll mount the light board over the table once I have the seeds planted.

Now a little about the seeds.
I have many seeds. Some are store bought.
It is important to get “heirloom” seeds if you plan on saving seeds from your vegetable to plant again next year. Most hybrid plants do not produce viable seeds. Hybrids are good for one time planting and usually have many other advantages over heirloom. Such as faster growth, higher germination rates, and disease resistance. Hybrid and GMO are not the same thing. GMO could be hybrid or they could also produce seeds. Read the packages.

Some are “survival” seeds in sealed packages to keep for years.

Many of the seeds I use are save year after year. In fact here are assorted seeds I inherited from my father. He passed away several years ago and I am still using his seeds and the little containers he used to save them in.

So now that I have shown the various seeds let’s cover how to plant them. Or how to prepare to plant them.
Some seeds germinte much better if they are soaked in lukewarm water overnight. This gives them the signal to start growing. But the amount of time for soaking is different for different types of seeds. And you have to be careful not to soak too long or the seeds will get moldy and go bad.

Freedom – No Grids To Be Seen

Finally. Yesterday I closed the sale of my house. No more mowing. No more upkeep. No more utilities. No more property taxes. On that house.

I bought it in 2000. Raised my daughter there. I haven’t lived there for years but have had to maintain it.

Now my only regular bills are vehicle license, inspection, insurance and registration. And the much lower property taxes for my land.

No electric bills, No gas bills, No water, sewage and trash bills.

Zero debt! In fact I’ve been debt free for years. Here’s the obligatory, if late, shout out to Dave Ramsey. “I’m Debt Free!!!”

And most of all. NO MORE TRIPS TO TOWN!!!

I really feel free.

I’ve been waiting months for the sale to complete before I go on an extended camping trip. I plan on leaving Monday. Just in time for September and cool weather.

Day is Done

Yeah. I got bored. I have made it 9 days and don’t care to go all 30. I know I am capable. But living on just wild vegetables is not only boring but also drains all my energy. I have no energy to do other tasks or even take walks with my dog. I could survive on it but who wants to? I don’t know how vegetarians do it. Manufactured supplements I guess. No wonder cultures who just gathered vegetables never had any other accomplishment. They were too weak.

Day 9 – Snow Day

Yes, it is snowing today. I will be munching on leftovers of previous plants. The ones that don’t wilt.


Here is a video of the spring sunshine.
