I blame (and thank) Larry Niven & Jerry Pournelle

Sounds like you're pretty well good to go. My next buy will be a backup inverter, to run the ac pump controller off the battery bank - and will just use manual switches to fill tanks from yard spigot/hoses... but it's a lot different set-up than yours, oh hell this is so off-topic. Oh well. My thread, my bad.

That's the thing about preparedness, right? So many proverbial avenues to turn down and it's just amazing the amount you have to think about.

Very true! Hi Annie, nice to meet you. Urinal Cake says you might want some snow. Any truth to that rumor? What started you on this path, if I may ask? If you don't want to tell, that's okay. No harm, no foul.

Not wanting to be dependent on others, being Free and experiencing Liberty...that is what motivates me.
Malevil in about 1973, I read Lucifer's hammer later. I've really become addicted to post apocalyptic.
Prepare for the worst, Hope for the best
Worry about the things you can control, Plan for the things you can't
Alas Babylon was my introduction to prepping.
Hi Slippy, that's a big part of it for me too. You're lucky to have seen how things are done growing up. Lots of us didn't, back then; and my guess is very few do now. Maybe the localized disasters now - will help wake folks up a bit, even if they're only watching from a safe distance, so they have a better chance of making it when/if a really big event happens. That, and there's no bigger liberty and freedom - than being able to take care of ourselves. Thanks for your reply.

I walked away from the farm 15 years ago, but the attitude has stayed for life.
