We are cleaning up from Irma still. Not much damage but lots of water. Some people weren’t so lucky though, even some deaths.
Downtown Charleston and most coastal areas had a lot of flooding. The battery was under waste deep water. Peoples roof collapsed. Areas were unreachable causing people to be stranded. Many trees were uprooted because of waterlogged soil.
I’m just glad we’re in SC and not Florida, they took the brunt of it after it hit the continental US. Of course, the Caribbean took the worse.
Work was out of power yesterday, and cleanup today. I’ll update if anything changes.
Next time we need to get a stronger tarp to wrap the greenhouse and tie it down better. We need to buy a generator, and some hand radios. Besides that we’re mostly good.
This suture kit is a very useful part of any bugout bag or emergency kit. Here is the link: https://mymedic.us/collections/first-aid-kits/products/the-stitch-kit.
Happy New Year!! A little late this morning, but got sidetracked by household chores. There are many things I want to get done this year (or at least a start on). Some of the main ones are:
- improving my garden/edible food forest
- building an entertainment/grilling area
- constructing a personal retreat building
- improving out preparedness in all areas
- better organizing the house
- improving physical fitness
This is quite a few things to work on, but I can make plans or at least start on these projects. Below are a few files that will help me this year.

Today’s subject is preparedness. How to build the habit and guidelines on how to become more prepared. While surfing the internet I found the articles below:
The Habit of Preparedness
10 Principles of Preparedness
List of Important Documents
I’m not an expert on these subjects in any way, I’m just learning as I go.
I just saw a video on Facebook. It showed an alternative way to clean a fish without cutting the abdomen open.
The man demonstrating this is from Brazil. He uses 4+ bamboo skewers. Puts them in through the mouth on either side of the cavity. Spins them around, holds them together and pulls everything out.
Most of the guts come out at one time if done correctly. Ingenious. I wonder how much practice it took to get the skill down.
Here the video link.
