I had some rail road spikes laying around and wondered if I could use them to split wood. I tried on a small tree that had feel some time ago. It worked pretty well for a free resource.

I'm really thinking about the oregon now. I am a lefty and kinda worried about chainsaws anway. I heard Paul talk about how electric ones are safer. Anyone try this with a chainsaw mill? Maybe bypass the battery and run off power?

Everyone should have a battery backup. I built one on my website a while back. DIY Battery Backup
It only tool a few minutes. Eventually I need to get a bigger inverter. Nice to stay on the internet when the power is down.

I want to find a scythe in a store. Granted it would probably be junk. I will have to end up hitting some yard sales and craigs list. For an original item I just saw on youtube a combination of an ax and a pickaroon. What a great concept.

Wow is that thing looking good. And definitely living up to the "Freaky Fast" in it's name.

I have a spare sleeping bag. Used maybe once or so rated to thirty degrees. I will not be by Montana anytime soon but could toss it in the mail.

Hello permies! I've been a lurker and long time fan of Pauls. I took a break from the podcast and have recently started back again. The episode I was listening to today mentioned sharing your blog on permies. I've linked here and to rich soil tons to help build Paul's empire. Anyway back to me, I have a blog in survival things, paleo cooking and punk. I take a strong diy approach to things and document when things work and when they fail miserably. I talk about tiny homes and homesteading. I've not wrote about permacukture yet being I have no land and much to learn. Although I'd love to run a guest post on it. If you like those sort of things come by www.survivalpunk.com thanks!

Good info. I've thought about making some easy wine like this. I do basically the same thing to make cider using whole foods organic Apple juice
