The scarf I have on my shoulders is a shemaugh/keffiyeh that I can wrap up ala “Black Sails “ when I need to go into pirate assassin mode...and when it is not 100 degrees and 90% humidity...

When is it appropriate to dress like a Pirate you ask?
1. Renaissance Fairs
2. Halloween
3. Talk like Pirate day, September 19 this year
4. Any costume party
5. When you need to spice it up (see Travis’s first post if you are confused) lol
6. Political rally’s
7. COFSM services
8. Saint patty’s day
9. Wednesday’s

Note cutless (peace tied) and cat-o- nine tails.  I did buy a nice belt bag at festival to carry my stuff, as I was tired of stuffing everything in my boots.  You know a real pirate when you pull a wad of beef jerky (see video, and it was sort of wrapped in parchment paper) out of your boot and offer it to them and they eat it.

No Pirate souls?   Pastafarians?  Here are some pics from last year’s Renaissance Festival in Colorado.  It had its good points but the jousting was too much talk not enough fighting...surely I am not the only Pirate out there...

Who out there doesn’t enjoy dressing as a pirate?  Even better going to the Renaissance Fair and having Medieval meats.   Check out the video :)
The Georgia Festival is a great one.  Does anyone know of any other good ones?

Jimmy,
Great yard sale score on the picker.  Did you load the logs from the side or drag them up from the end?   I think every homestead could use a good gin pole rig.  Can you start a thread with pictures that show the picker and using it?

And as for cider press...I think Paul cringes every time he sees I have posted something...

Jim,
I think you are onto something.  I have had a problem with how "green" people think electric vehicles are.  A lot of toxic gick goes into making batteries, and if you are charging on grid what gick was involved to get you the electrons for your EV.  And it seems that every battery I know of or owned, once it starts being used, is dying and will have to be disposed of and replaced someday.  Not very permie sounding.   It would seem that using reliable gas burner, like your jeep, would be a good homestead option.  Easy to work on, could easily stock pile a lifetime of parts and in a pinch even brew your own fuel.

Where did you get the gin pole rig on the back of it?  How does it work for you?   I assume you loaded those logs with it, did it easily make it a one-man job?

ps
Electric chainsaws may have there place for limbing and other lite work, but we used one to fell a fair sized maybe 20 inch diameter tree at a PDC and it was hopelessly underpowered to the point I thought it was a bit unsafe using it, as it would "overload" and quit just when you needed torque.   For any serious logging or firewood collection I would still give the edge to a noisy gas chain saw.  Small engines are really not that complicated to diagnose and work on, and again you could easily stockpile a life time of parts and make your own fuel if it got to that.

Jocelyn,
Can you check on my email status too, please?  I signed up for the last session but have not seen any replies other than the paypal one.

thanks,

Rob
My photo skills did not show it...but this one is angled up to allow the air to flow up and out over the food trays.
