Hard Time Tips

To ease your ‘path’…is to KNOW HOW to make WILDERNESS LIVING Easier.  Thus :

“By Hook or Crook” was a way folks got high up tree limb deadwood.  Simple: get a long branch, Strip off all BUT THE BIG END with a “hook” branch.  All others taken off.  HOOK the “hook” over the tall branch(es) and PULL Down.  (Watch your head)

To carry out cut firewood : CUT NEARLY THROUGH one “long” log..  Shoulder carry out 3, etc. pieces at a time on  shoulders or Sled.  Break apart at home. STEP on it to break.

To fast dry wood, take a strip of bark off…or more.

Children’s cheap plastic sleds can sure help carry firewood, YEAR ROUND.

If a BIG Log: cut pulling end to a “point”.  Thus won’t “dig in” when pulling out.

BARK makes most of your CREOSOTE.  PEEL and use ONLY AS FIRE STARTER!

If firewood is across a ravine or up a hill….STRETCH A STRONG ROPE ACROSS to your “landing area”.  Cut lengths short.  Pound in U-bend “Fence nails” and SLIDE the wood across on the rope.  ALLOW ROOM to SLIDE down rope.

BE AWARE  these pieces have nails…WATCH OUT when going to landing area to collect.

A large MAGNET can help recoup your nails.

I’ve used a pet cow to pull out logs.  Made a yoke with a partially inflated car inner tube.  TAPE the AIR STEM so as to not harm animal.

Travois on dogs / horses / friendly cow / goats can be made easily.  DON’T OVERLOAD.

PUT THEM TO WORK!

In Kindling Splitting….put wood to be spit Upright into center of
an OLD TIRE.  ALL pieces, split, then stand upright and no needless “chasing” and   bending. (Faster, too).

If using a HAND SAW…use KEROSENE to occasionally wet (rag) the blade.  FAR SMOOTHER going.

Hope this is useful for someone…or FUTURE someones.  Aho?   GB    re

Readers : my wife and I are ‘spatting’…..over WATER!   She’s “gone white” on me…I’m a ‘savage’ to her (at the moment).  Buster water pipes….Frozen water source.  “I WANT MY MORNING SHOWER!!!!!”

That and this:  “and YOU want to move up to even WORSE (conditions)!”

Yes, I do.  “WORSE” will look DARN GOOD before to long.  “Savage” will look DARN GOOD soon, too.

We two are VANGUARDS…running AHEAD of the masses.  ALWAYS ‘In Front’.

This is just ‘another case’.  Aho?

Water will be the least of the problems, but one worthy of being told about (family disagreement).

THINGS LIKE THIS WILL BE THINGS YOU WILL BE FACING!

So, 3 against 1 in this house.  Sky (Grandson) ‘half n half’…so maybe more like 2 1/2 against one.  ALL over WATER “WANTS”.

Many (reading) have teens…or a mate who DONT WANT  A  N  Y  HARDSHIPS. Want the ‘sweet SOFT life’.  THIS WILL CREATE HEAVY STRIFE In Your Marriage / Etc.

Will  I   “fold”?  Nope, I intend to get as ready as I can.  ALL here will NEED what I’m striving for…..A PLACE TO LIVE.  That’s IT!!!  An ABODE to keep warm in.

Showers be Damned.  BIRD BATHS and DRINKING WATER,  THAT WILL BE A BLESSING, in time.

I will continue on the ‘path’ given…and those here will be THANKFUL I DID SO…..LATER!

SOMEONE MUST BE “SMART”.

Will it be YOU?

Well, expect “disagreements”.  DONT “Push”.  Simply grit your teeth and go on GETTING THINGS READY.

You are NOT alone!      re

“Downsizing”?  Yes, but more like STRIPPING!

Beautiful out.  Going to “broom off” the domes and shovel snow off porch.  14 to maybe 16 inches and still coming down.  “Brooming” is using a broom to push upward from inside.  Did this when in my TiPi.  All snows fall to base and goes up-ward.  INSULATING the whole.  FAR WARMER inside, then.  LOVE IT!

The whites kept their roof nails sticking above the shingles, to CATCH snow.  Today we put out Big Bucks to insulate the daylights in the attic.  Just another way to make someone rich.  Aho?

The common man is so STUPID (in my eyes).

My domes have old blankets over the frame (Sweat Lodge way), with tarp over those.  Snowfall is “broomed” off from INSIDE (push against the inside).  It then slides down and slowly collects all around.  Insulating the ALL.      I LOVE THE STUFF!  (Guess you can call this “Snow Berming”)

Folks, why FIGHT winter?  USE IT and be COMPATABLE with it.  Aho?

Gonna get our snowshoes out and take Sky for a Walk-About.  Get him used to these.

If any are interested, I’ve owned / used a number of styles.  I WON’T USE BUT THE “OJIBWAY” STYLE now.

FANTASTIC “All Around” design.  IVENS SNOWSHOE Co. is where I get ours (3 or 4 pairs).

Decided best to make Tire Rubber “Chaps” instead of full Mukluks.  High enough to strap above the knees.  LESS SWEAT PROBLEMS.  Aho?

Plenty of good SNOW ICE CREAM makings, right outside our door.  (  :

Also got out my Converted Water Ski.  LOVE THIS like you wouldn’t believe!  I took off the skeg and foot “step-in”.  Screwed in good metal “eyes” at top sides.  Drilled a hole at tip (pull rope) AND the BACK.

(Going downhill I walk behind it and hold it back / steer)

I load this with my winter camping gear (AND Fire Wood).  Keeping the load VERY low.  Try to go 10 inches high.  Never above 16 inches.  Use the “eyes” to crisscross rope over the load.

This sled FOLLOWS LIKE A PUPPY!

My NA Ancestors did this.  Theirs tho were often 20 ft. long.  Steam Bent the tip.  Glides behind like a breeze.  10 to 15 inch width.  THIN single board.  UNDULATE as you go along….”fitting” the contour of the land.  Aho?

Bought my ski at a ‘cheap shop’.  $5.00.  “Eyes” another $4.00.

Used a Like Ski to make a DOG SLED.  Used an old Lawn Mower Handle.  Ran Cocker Spaniels with our daughter aboard. Gave it to a ‘cheap shop’ after I got malamutes and a freight sled.  THEY SOLD IT IN 4 DAYS!  $25.00 !!!

I’ve taught a number how to make DOG HARNESSES out of old jeans.  Each leg does one dog.  This “doing” from the way the Eskimo in Greenland did, long ago.

Other then having CRAZY coast livers pass by (freeway)…Winter CAN BE FUN!

Life Is an Adventure

You may think me crazy, but I’m kinda excited over the events to date….as WELL as what I’ve seen in our near future (+ !!!).

To me, an adventure.  I’ve spent much of my life Learning.  THAT included TESTING.

LIVING the TODAY’S Time YEARS ago.  Learned THEN to be able to “DO” today…AND HELP ADVISE YOU.

Are we (this family) poor?  Well, if no $$ means ‘poor’….sure are.  But THIS ‘poor’ no WAY as poor as we’ve LIVED.  Shoot!  We are RICH (compared).  REAL RICH!

Learned THEN, and applying NOW, from that.

LOOK AT ALL THIS AS AN ADVENTURE IN LEARNING….and eventually you TOO can be “comfortable”.

You’re only beat when you STOP SEEING IT AS THIS.

Those that DO see it right….will GRIP AND  W  I  N  !   Aho?   re

We ALL here enjoy This “winter treat”.  A number of recipes on internet.

Stay clear of brown or yellow snow tho.  (  :

Never use the FIRST snow.  Too much “stuff” in it.  “Skim” the top when you collect.  Aho?

We mix in different jams for different tastes.  Including CHOCOLATE Mix and even Peanut Butter.

Mize well TEST this…..you ALL will enjoy!     MERRY XMAS!   re

To any following the reports of the recent Fight Back of the healing ‘trip’ many joined in, I’d like you to KNOW mankind is at war.  Have been since “day one” (Adam / Eve / Serpent).

Few are Fully Aware at how SUBTLE “L” is.

You / I / ALL…are CONSTANTLY BEING Attacked.

Our Daily Lives are filled with stresses / fears / sadness / etc.  ALL … ATTACKS!

PLANNED attacks, to keep you / us Distracted and Away from our Maker….and His LOVE.

To keep US from LEARNING and SHARING to others in this ‘minefield’ called Life.

All ‘paths’ are filled with ‘Pot Holes’ ….. even Collapsed ‘Bridges’.

“hE comes as a ROARING LION”.

Those contemplating Suicide….another Drink….Drug “His”….to ‘escape’ the daily pains of Life….please :   RECONSIDER!

LEARN YOU ARE  S  T  R  O  N  G  E  R   than lucifer.  (oh yes you ARE!).

hE’S an ANGEL…and the Creator says WE have FULL CONTROL OVER   A  L  L    angels.

It’s easy to SAY…..and ONLY by TESTING THIS SAYING will you EVER KNOW.

Consider doing so, PLEASE!

We human’s are GIFTED BEINGS.  Gifted with STRENGTHS Far Greater than most realize.

If you have ‘followed’ this recent  ONE HEART / MIND event….SEE THE TRUTH that WE…or just YOU, can WIN!

I wish you well.

More from John:

Interesting coincidence. 3 in Europe with visions of muddy black water running from the pyramid and then finally clear on the day and time of backing. They received the call that it was done a short time after seeing the water run clear.  Another in Canada had a dream of his house being surrounded by a flood of muddy black water on that day after he backed us. Thankfully in his dream a giant tow truck pulled him, family, and WHOLE HOUSE out of trouble… they were riding on top.  Hmm, you’re really gonna let the canada jokes fly on this one the next time we meet. 🙂   i’ll have to let the 2 groups know how similar their visions were.  All stories really positive.   – john

One of the most difficult things to get people to see, is the Full Meaning of Scriptural Wording :  “THOUGHTS ARE REAL”.

This is meant for ALL (religions / ways / etc.)  But how many pay it a lick of attention?

“He” has it there FOR A REASON!   Best consider it.

“Dad” made ALL…you and I included, by FIRST  THINKING  on what He wanted to do.

ALL STEMS FROM  T  H  O  U  G  H  T(s)  FIRST.

We are PROOF of this.  ALL you SEE / SMELL / HEAR / FEEL / Etc. STEMS FROM THIS.

To help you understand:  when YOU ‘DAYDREAM’ YOU are CREATING SOMETHING VERY REAL.

So, (for instance) you are “thinking” (day dreaming) a bunch of (say) Friends out partying (etc.)….and IF GOD IS TELLING TRUE…THOSE you are DAY-DREAMING….consider YOU  “GOD”!

When you are distracted and CEASE this Day-Dream…..YOU HAVE DESTROYED THOSE IN YOUR “Dream”!    Gone.

This goes for Anything you day-dream.  (Not just ‘friends’).

“THOUGHTS ARE REAL”.

If you “day-dream”, say, Killing….and Day-Dream you are doing so….in THAT FRAME OF MIND, it is  F  A  C  T !

Thus, KEEP YOUR THOUGHTS GODLY!

When you DO “kill” (or ANY UnGodly thoughts) and KNOW the TRUTH of “Thoughts are Real”….and WANT TO remain in “His” ‘Right-Standing’….then APOLOGIZE TO HIM and SEEK FORGIVENESS!

ALL you produce in you mind…Good OR Bad….according to HIM…are FACTS.  Aho?   re

Adam out now from his Vision Quest.  Looked like a dirty, unshaved, “beat” HOBO emerging from the forest.  (  :

Did he get his Vision?  He thinks not.  I disagree.  He just doesn’t understand yet.

I’ll ask him to write of his time out there alone (if he’s willing).  CAME OUT “CHANGED”.

Better understanding of the Great SIMILARITIES between “white” religion and that of the NA.  Now able to BRIDGE…and “walk in 2 shoes”.

Far more understanding the “Way of Purity”.

I had food with me (he hadn’t eaten in 6 full days).  Wasn’t the “PERFECT” meal….(wife keeps buying only Low Fat meats….falls apart.  grrrrr).

Knowing it wouldn’t matter (He’d eat fried…and LOVE IT!).  (  :

Now in shower and getting shaved.

He’ll leave tomorrow.

Was GOOD TIME!

Big Brother “went to the wilderness OFTEN”……PRIVATE Undisturbed  One-On-One with the Great Creator.

You’d be surprised how MUCH these times help you to “CENTER” yourself with HIM.

The NA KNEW THIS….the “whites” have forgotten.

“FOLLOW ME”.

John, one of the three ‘trippers’:

That’s awesome. yes, please get me one if you are able. I stopped at the custom knife place on the way back home and the guy there thought they were out of business and unable to get them anymore. Thank you
Also, i will be talking to Sue chickadee tonight. 🙂 I know she’ll be very happy to hear from you. Shared the story and your email with mom…this whole thing brought a tear to her eye. She’s strong but you can’t help but be moved by everything that’s happening. I’m trying to find a good way to put into words the Go(o)d experience that collectively is growing in us. It seems to me that for myself and others this was more than just a step forward. It’s feels more like momentum!
