    corona virus: leave town and go to the woods a bit

    Where are you in Norcal? I've spent most of my life in the Sierra nevadas outside tahoe national forest. You can grow almost anything out here. Primary concerns should be a water source, firearm and some kind of method to keep deer from eating your garden. And yeah the forests are all...

    corona virus: leave town and go to the woods a bit

    Shit really cant hit the fan too hard, we are not idiots. If it gets real bad go out to the woods and plant some seeds. Its not hard to do. Scavenge until you can eat.

    Modern day nomad looking to jump some trains.

    Yes Tahoe is on the Nevada/California stateline. There are casinos on one side and gentrified woodsy suburbs on the other. Mind you they are also surrounding/protecting one of the most beautiful high altitude lakes west of the Mississippi. Not to downplay the efforts of the Sierra clubs...

    What towns can you still cross the border w no id?

    The passport card is pretty easy to get and alot cheaper than the passport book. Does not require stamps and allows you to cross as many times as you like. I got the book and card for trucking. Last time I checked you needed the card at a minimum in Tijuana and every other border crossing.

    time ender from portland, oregon - crazy person you should avoid

    Holy shit that went off the rails quick. I can't believe some people's ability to not be able to squash their ego and bullshit for ten seconds. Threatening with lawyers against a not for profit website. Sounds like a Californian and their frivolous lawsuits not someone from Oregon.

    Trump using Iran war, textbook "Shock Doctrine" & "Manufacturing Consent" in action.

    Its not starting; its already happening. The military is drawing up different response scenarios as we are speaking right now. Probably hundreds of invasion scenarios; destruction scenarios. This is going to be ugly real fast; and the sad part is all the people stuck in the middle of all...

    Looking for cheap cost of living with a strong economy

    The house was left to me when my mom passed; my sister is too incompetent to manage it so im renting it out to a family member and giving her half the proceeds and putting the rest away for repairs and taxes. The place honestly needs alot of tlc. The savings is basically the accumulation of...

    Looking for cheap cost of living with a strong economy

    Yeah the cost of living is the reason im looking at migrating. I have about 10k saved and "possibly a settlement down the road because of my injuries"; which to me feels like alot but in reality its not. Especially in this dreaded state. My life is here in California but I truly don't feel...

    Looking for cheap cost of living with a strong economy

    I'm probably ending the end of my shoulder injury soon and have some savings but not as much as I'd like. I need to find a place that you can get a place and job that actually pays the cost of living in the area. The problem im running into is the fact that im going to have a weight limit...

    Yeah Shasta has some elevation on it; there were cars stuck on the donner pass all night last night. I've worked and backpacked in that kind of weather but I would not want to be on a train. That steel is cold man. Glad you survived.

    Why is it so hard to find housing?

    Being a landlord myself to the one house I own I completely understand where homeowners are coming from. On the other hand the west coast especially in California is screwed. I'm looking at getting out of here when i can because the cost of living is bizarre. Its bad out here. Best of luck...

    Can you walk long distances with a heavy pack?

    Just had shoulder surgery and it didn't heal well. Biggest downside is I think it limits me on weight for a pack. Sucks. I might be able to work through it but we will see.

    Ever been fired for lack of housing?

    Most states are at will states. That doesn't mean they can discriminate. Im not sure if they have a homeless bill of rights in that state though. The state legislatures are pretty slow to get that ball rolling.

    https://www.themarshallproject.org/2018/10/15/police-with-military-experience-more-likely-to-shoot I'm not positive how accurate that this report is but it sheds some light on it. Veteran might not be the best police; at least in Dallas.

    One of the most disturbing things I have ever seen

    My biggest argument is they need escalation of force training like bad. You don't beat on juveniles and people who are restrained. When we went overseas we had a minimum of 80 hours of escalation of force training. What that means is if somebody is throwing rocks at you, you don't point your...

    What is there to investigate though? On a side note I'm sure as hell steering clear of Prescott Arizona. There's no excuse for that. What is truly disturbing is the only news outlet reporting on it is the Washington post.

    I know your pain, I got stuck for a week behind a fire line in California. The only road in and out of where I was at had 7 miles of pure fire zone. Forest service brought me MRE's and I camped it out. They offered to get me out but I didn't want to ditch my car. Been stuck in a blizzard...

    We had those in the middle east as well. They are pretty expensive man. Goes without saying there's like maybe a dozen cities in California that actually have those. Its easier to make a fake cell tower and scoop up on that. Last news story I saw said there were like 50 fake cell towers in...

    The biggest lesson I ever recieved in the service was hydration in cold weather. You will dehydrate quicker in cold weather than hot because you don't expect it or see it coming. Hydration is key right next to getting acclimatized to where you are at. Takes a good 1-2 weeks for your body to...
