01/16/19 11:56 PM Home prep for renting a room out in the sticks by Mark_R

Long time no post. I need some advice. I've had to sublet a room on a cattle ranch, and commute 30 miles into town for work (Long story). The structure is a prefab, with no interior access to the crawl space underneath.

My main challenge is I am entirely dependent on the car. The nearest population center is a 2.5 hour walk. My other challenges are that the power periodically goes out with heavy weather, and stays out till the repair crews can get to us.

The main hazards are high winds (the shed next to my side of the house just got knocked down), wildfires, and seismic soil liquification.

I've got food, water, flashlights, AM/FM radio, and batteries.

Any tips or suggestions? And, any tips for driving a crossover(Honda CRV) through gale force wind?

"On Sunday, Jan. 26, Institute for American Indian Studies educator Griffin Kalin will lead a program on how to survive in the Eastern Woodlands without 21-centure (SIC) technology."

I am not affiliated with this organization. It is located in western CT, inexpensive, and looked interesting to me.

Admin, please remove or relocate, as necessary.

Thought provoking article, although one feasible answer seems to is that the existing stats are rather poor -"more research is needed..."

Everything this man in the video says is common knowledge; how he puts it made me look at what I already know in a new way.


You may have the skills and gear you need to survive on your own; if you run into a snafu (your sick or your cabin catches on fire), you will be up a creek if you don't have your network or community.
