  2. Campfire Talk

    I'm the bottom dweller from Cedar Crick. Swede just reset my password. I'm modifying Swede. And typed this from his house. A few know me from Farmagedden. I think Swede is going to let us have a windbreak this coming up year. Hurrah!

    Well, Swede should be in the hospital awaiting that store bought knee. We saw him last night after we took the canvas off the tipi. He wasn't looking forward to this so we'll have to cheer him up after he awakens. I told Sharon to let us know.

    Swede, The cabin sounds nice. Did some geneology for Julie there. Not at the cabin, at the courthouse. Seen a guy Monday that found 9 sheds. Some of them were nice. You been looking? Seen robins also. Dumb things are always early. Also Killdeer, red winged blackbirds. There was an Eagle hanging around Bob's a week ago. Anyway, another 9 days till Spring.

  10. Our tribal names

    Swede's Commune. How is this for a tribal name? OK, how about business name? The boy wants to know if he can set a trap up to Pa's. How is Pa? Deer meat in his frig.

    The credit goes to the youngster. He's busier than a 3 peckered billy goat. With chores, with school, with voting, with life in general. Any wolves in those hills?

    So, Day after,,,,,,,,,,,listening to Steppenwolf,,,,,,,,,,,,Is this cool or what??????????? Is the war over?????????? Is Osama Bin Laden in jail???????????? Enough politics,,,,,,,,,,,,Let's talk farming. Still milking, boys trapping, red fox got a taste for chicken, 1/2 doz. eggs a day, deer tracks in the 3 acre garden, picked 55 gal. barrel of butternut, bees still alive, 2 75 pound piglets, 600 Lb boar, 600 Lb sow, 4 does, 1 buck, 1 ram, 3 ewes, 2 lambs, need some seed? Is it gonna rain? Tipi still shining, fire this weekend, watch the smoke roll out of those smoke flaps, cut wood, and party. Feel the need to party. It's like I want to celebrate, or something, to that effect. The brussel sprouts taste wonderful. And the wife picked 2 5 gal. buckets of pears. Are you people gonna start farming or what? Plant a fruit tree. Something. Wish I had a greenhouse. Wish I had solar panels on my house. Wish I had a wind turbine to charge my wishful electric car. Wish there was clean air and water. Wish there were fish in the crick. Wish my food was safe to eat. Wish the white house would go green. Wish that your wishes come true. Horus

    Hello all, A friend of mine introduced me to this forum and I was impressed with the fact, that he said that I would enjoy your company. My name is Horus. At least my forum name is Horus. I work for a living and don't have alot of extra money. We, wife and son, live on a small acerage. My favorite quote from my Grandfather is, "You'll some day starve to death if you don't owne your own land." This quote has been a driving factor in my excistance and we purchased our acerage in 1983. One of my goals of having a teepee, tipi, has not been realized. Planning stages are half the fun. So, in way of meeting, I would like to hear about tipi's. All aspects. And excuse this, if this information already excists on a previous post. Sincerely, Horus

    Did you get the tractor? Horus

    Good morning, I thought I would check in and give a small update. The Tipi is here. I bought an 18 footer. The poles are here also and the work has only begun on them. They need sanded and treated. The CSA has 8 members and is keeping the newly graduated high schooler busy as a bee. Speaking of bees, they are here too. 2 garden plots are planted, 5 to go, it will be about 3 acres total. Me and the bank bought a new tractor, and I would like to say diesel has went up 35 cents in the short time I've owned it. It gets twice the mileage as the old 2N ford however and does twice the work. I buried my 2 bottom plow and tore up the old plow pan. The weather............it's supposed to be spring but it sure didn't feel like it yesterday. The low tonight is 45. Hey, I heard a rumor that propane was going to be 4 dollars a gal. this winter. I hope that is just a rumor. We picked up 10 flats of plants yesterday from the my greenhouse guy. Hopefully get them planted in the next couple of days. We hired two college grads to help work the garden this summer. They should be showing up in a couple of weeks. Things will change here at the ole gravel stop farm. We house and feed them and pay them. It will be a new expierience. I hope it works out. I actually think they want to stay in that tipi. We are building an outdoor privy, solar shower, bought a screened in tent so they can eat without too many bugs and don't know when I'll start the cabin. The garden can use some heat and so could my old bones. I just want to lay in the sun and soak up some heat. I have been working like there is no tomorrow and can use a break. Isin't that a Bob Dylan song? Gotta run, Horus

    We got 2 months for delivery. Should be nice by then. The plan is to put it on the back hill. Horus

    Survivor guy, I bought an 18 footer. It takes 6 to 8 weeks for delivery and I have to go to the cities to pick up the poles. They wanted an extra 500.00 to drop the poles at the house. How is your knee? Heal up, I want your help for the setup. What is a good video camera? I want to film the setup. Horus
  18. New out house in Huston

    Swede, Do you have a trench coat I can borrow?
  19. There is a couple here at work that say they are going to use thier tax rebate check to buy gas for thier motor home and travel to the west coast for 2 weeks. I told them that I was buying a wind turbine with mine. They looked like puppies with thier heads cocked. The same people have a picture of George and his wife behind thier desk.

    Coorporation is the most recent movie I've watched. It's to bad the producers didn't hear about your ordeal, might have made the movie. Horus

    Tatonka, We always drink our milk whole. Why boil out the good stuff. There are alot of rules concerning selling milk, yogurt, or cheese though and pastuirizing seems to eliminate this. We haven't checked it all out of course but our main reason for buying the pastuirizer was for yogurt for home use. I am looking forward to the greening of the grass.

    I'm going to the community center meeting today at 10. I'll be home by 1. You want to come to the farm? We are going to build a fire this afternoon. Big white man fire!

    When I was 15 yrs. old I wrote a 200 page novel about WW3. It was about a group of kids that survived in the woods and eluded the enemy. We lived off the land as you teach here. There weren't any adults left and we lived in occupied terrortory. We hid, gathered, killed. Maybe with this information you'll see that I wasn't to impressed with Les. At age 15 I survived for a year in the woods with enemy all around and saved several in my group. You can't write 200 pages without doing some research.

    Swede, You want to start this as an independent thread?
