    Just got done cleaning the four filters in my Big Berkey water filter.
    Has been operational online for over four years without cleaning.
    Use it everyday for potable water.
    The process rate had slowed down over the four years and the white filters had turned black.
    The two replacement sets(4 each) I have are black, will just have to do them at two years as a guess,
    when and if I ever need to change out the present ones.

    Hired a man and his Bobcat to clear a few areas. (I covet those who own a Bobcat and wonder why I spent so much money on whiskey and women when I could have had a Bobcat...but I digress).

    I had him clear, scrape and level a number of areas; One area to to finish the prep for my future chicken coop/run. Another area for an outdoor cooking kitchen close enough to the house for ease of access but far enough away for safety should anything catch flames. The Bobcat was also able to placed a few very large mini-boulders around my gates to impede anyone from entering on a dirt bike or small ATV.

    And finally I just finished digging a post hole and setting a 6x6 post in concrete for a gate on a rarely used trail that goes to my neighbors land. Me and my neighbor get along very well but better safe than sorry should some ne'er do wells decide for an easy target.

    All in all it was money well spent but I wish I had a Bobcat.

    I reloaded 300 rounds of 7.62x39 ammo and sealed it for proper prepper storage.

    Shoots and I spent the last 2 days exploring locations for supply cashes, off leash training the dogs, and mapping a few routes, and building Shoots a go bag. We finally found one she likes and took the opportunity to add another camelbak and sawyer mini filter.

    And 2 snake bite kits.

    Nothing major, ordered about six hundred dollars of precious metals from the internet, and purchased the materials to repair a screen door. Sweet deal thou, I needed some sheet metal to redo it, and found two sheets of stamped steel, 48 cents each. Score.

    Learned auto upholstery the hard way. Just dove right in.

    Muffler shop caught my car on fire and I had to replace a seat bottom. The leather was still good, just the padding/foam was burned. I bought a white seat from the pick a part just for the frame and padding. So I pulled both material off and swapped.

    How is this prep related? I learned a skill, and I also learned the rings are called hog rings, used on hogs to deter foraging, but can also be used on auto upholstery and more importantly, fencing (as in emergency fence repair)

    It also seems like it could be useful in furniture. I've had friends that have had old school recliner cushion/springs break. Not sure these could help, but I know I can find more uses for them (hog rings). Hmm.

    Good job Kevin. And it's prep related, becouse you saved money, which COULD be precious metals, (whole in shelf).

    Purchases: Today I picked out an INCH bag, then found it on ebay. $285 Bag from REI won the bid at 70 buckssss

    Research: Today I found out where and how to Study for and obtain a HAM technician license. Also picked out a mobile model. (may change)
    I also leaned about 80% Lowers and plan on buying two and milling them out.

    Tomorrow: Put in an order for 1000rd's of Green tip
