Ten months ago I invited a couple of Hippies to share my daughter's 50 acre doomstead which I half own as my daughter needed company & helpers in the garden & for helping around the place as I am getting older & can not always be there as I have my own 5 acres here & I have other commitments like helping my aged parents.

The hippies worked out fairly well but were not real workers, more dreamers than anything. He needed someone to work with him before anything got done & she had her kids to look after but was a great gardener when she got to it. Not really self disciplined though, she preferred her books & computer games to work.

They left 2 months ago & were replaced today with a local RFB volunteer & rural worker. Has all his own tools, equipment, tractor, ride-on & furniture. This fellow, well known to us, is prepared to work on the place in his spare time. The doomstead, my backup plan # 1 should take shape faster now. Backup plan # 2 is other daughter's hobbyfarm but it is 90mins away so I'm putting most of my eggs in the closer one, 40 mins away even though the other is much more advanced. It is only 10 acres & does not have a springfed dam. The 50 acre one has two.

My mechanic neighbour got a Toyota 50 HP bobcat for $3,000 last week. Goes like a charm. Right place at the right time.

That seems to work but it's just a page about the film, I can't see any links to actually watch it. I get this all the time with IMDB, is it just me? :)

Yeah, apparently I am bonkers to most people.
But, my idea is most have their heads securely inserted in their arses!

We live in hippy central and don't underestimate how conniving, manipulative and outright dangerous they can be.  And they feel totally justified to whatever because they are 'enlightened'.  They are now met at the gate with firearms.  Dogs don't like them etc etc.

But made some tentative contact with likely people.  My biggest problem in a SHTF situation is I need manpower.  Mainly for security but some for food production.  Most food production I can do with women and children - no worries.  Security is another thing.

I'm starting to think that the social phenomenon of single men living alone in old age is going to accelerate.  Divorces often send children with the mother who has an interest in making the kids not close to the old man so by the time the kids have kids, he has been eased out of their lives.  This social demographic is climbing and looks like a part of the population who need to be considered as useful.

The issue with many of those single guys who have been left by wives or remain single, is that many of them are quite irresponsible.  I wonder if a SHTF would help make some of them more responsible or not.

You could look at less labour intensive methods of growing food eg aquaponics.

yeah, considered aquaponics.  To my mind, it requires too much input.  Specialist hardware (tanks, troughs etc) electric powered pumps and bought in fish food.  I wouldn't mind having a play with it but its just not for me.

There are plenty of irresponsible puta's out there in regard to females I would add.
The only reason most of the bitches take the kids is to get the family tax benefit for cash for drugs, pokies,
booze and to keep the new boyfriends happy! The kids are the ones that always suffer :(
There may be some bad blokes out there, but they are far outweighed by the good ones.
My exslut now lives alone with her dad as the boyfriends did not pan out so well and old slow coach reliable Russ
is now happy with someone who is reliable and warmed hearted!
Grass aint always greener on the other side of the fence (well it may but that is from a generous application of BULLSHIT!) If someone loves you, looks after your ex's kids, feeds you and houses you without any abuse or the like you should stick to them like shit to a blanket! ;D

well put, DP.  People are just people, regardless of gender or age.  Trick is to sort the wheat from the chaff and value the genuine ones.

Couldn't agree more! And there's very few things that either of the sexes can do that the other can't.

Guilty as charged your honour , I sometimes have been a Pain to the mrs with my lifestyle choices , cars bikes etc but I think that after 34 years she is used to it not that she don,t have her quirky things too ,like for gods sake Imelda another pair of shoes to go in the cupboard with the other 100 or so , but in reality for it to work I think you need to similar interests as well as your individual ones , but to many people these days just find the easy way out and then realise sh** I f**ked up , takes understanding ,patience and give and take like all things in life

Just my take on the world


Cheers Paddler ;D
