    Great post, it definitely stirs up the creative juices.. I'm not much into recycling but there are a few things I do on the regular.

    1. Break down boxes to use as fire-starters for the burn pit.
    2. Save bacon grease and cooking oil to saturate the cardboard and make it burn longer

    Other than that, I pretty much just burn everything else with the aforementioned "recycled" materials. Ha ha... I guess I refuse to be a hoarder. I only recycle stuff in order to burn the rest

    I have an uncouth old yankee pal who tries to go wee wee in the backyard instead of in the house to take a flush. In bad weather he says just go in the sink. Human jurine also makes great fertilizer for them who dont read Mother Earth News. Its also good as an antiseptic for cuts..ear aches..and an anti fungal for athletes foot. Indians used it for tanning buffalo hides and bluing guns. My Grand Dad used to save it ant dump it on red ant beds..but the fire ants ate all the red ants a few years back.

    Brass, lead lots of it.
    New life as a house husband, major shift in duties.
