BB20 Certification: 20 PEP Badge Bits

To apply, please show you have earned 20 PEP Badge Bits.
:: At least 20 :: Any PEP Badge BB, Any Level :: Oddball, 1 Full Point Equivalent To 1 BB ::

Earners of BB20 Certification are currently entitled to a packet of Sepp Holzer grain to be mailed within the U.S.  If you wish for a packet of 42 grains to be mailed to you, please post saying so to this thread and a staff member will contact you to coordinate details. This is not a forever thing.

Sometimes, PEP events will only be open to people who have earned a minimum number of PEP BB's. One of the numbers I've seen thrown around is BB20.
Current BB20 Event at Wheaton Labs: https://wheaton-labs.com/bb20/

"The Double Trouble!"

For clarity, one need not pursue BB20 Certification on their way to PEP1 Certification.

I pursued these twenty bits for the purity of it all but now I see that I can now obtain Sepp Holzer grains without shady backroom deals and third party couriers in Ireland, which is quite a relief.  Yes please, I would like some.

So, I have earned ten bits. These went into the BB10:

1) Lash something 10' to a vehicle without dying
2) Sweep the Leg
3) Spring Cleaning
4) Make a firestarter from an oily dish
5)  Pee on a Plant
6) Make tea from plants you found laying around
7) First Aid for your First Aid Kit
8) Wash Dishes by hand, then wash your hand
9) Make an egg slide around in a cast iron skillet
10) Stir Fry!

These I submit for BB20:

11) Pollinator gatorade station

12) Not the sharpest knife in the drawer

13) Eat a bunch of plants, but not if you grew them

14) Zip it, pal!

15) Dry out your peppermint

16) Turn a branch into a smaller branch

17) Bake a loaf of bread, and also a backup loaf of bread

18) Make sand soup.  Oh, sorry, that's for a sand badge in soup.

19) Cook rice with fuzzy logic

20) Make a natural medicine journal to help you recover from all the BBs

Congrats on BB20, Rob! Thanks for sharing a few laughs.

I realize I've got a couple more BB's beyond 20 now so it's high time I apply for my BB20 badge!  :)

Here are the first 10 I used for BB10 and a link to that application if you want the live links  

1. Built a kindling cracker  (If you've got a RMH, and you should have one, this is a "must have" tool in my opinion.)
2. Developed a residual income stream.  (Would you like a Huang Raising Hammer?)
3. Sold goods I've made. (Can I interest you in some art?)
4. Cooked some grains in an instapot.  (It was tasty as a Spanish rice dish.)
5. Powered up the chainsaw to cut down a dead tree.  (Lots more standing firewood to cut thanks to the emerald ash borer!)
6. Got a good arm workout sawing down another dead tree.  (We tend to forget that the crosscut saw was a marvel of technology at one time.  Sure beats gnawing down a tree with your teeth!)
7. Put together a small 12 volt DC solar system. (Specially designed for camping.  Ok, it's really for car camping.  I wouldn't want to carry the battery or solar panel in a back pack!)
8. Raised a small copper bowl. (This is what I've been doing for my day job!  So it was an easy, if time consuming, one for me.)
9. Made some copper tongs.  (I don't know why most metalsmiths purchase flimsy, cheap copper tongs when it's so easy to make superior ones with basic metalsmithing skills.)
10. Was an electricity oddball, replacing my home system solar battery bank.  (Ouch, but this was an expensive BB to do!  Hopefully I can make this new battery bank last 10+ years.)

Here are 10 of the new BB's to make a total of 20:

11. On a crisp fall day I went out and foraged many pounds of apples.
12. In preparation for the winter heating season I did the annual clean out of my RMH.
13. Naturally this also leads to me starting and operating my J-tube RMH.
14. Cooked some grains in a second way, this time on my stovetop.
15. Had a home cleaning frenzy where I cleaned my bathroom.
16. Had a home cleaning frenzy where I cleaned the interior of my freezer.
17. Had a home cleaning frenzy where I cleaned the interior of the refrigerator.
18. Had a home cleaning frenzy where I swept the floor.
19. Had a home cleaning frenzy where I cleaned the kitchen.
20. Had a home cleaning frenzy where I wiped down some condensating windows.

I noticed that M Broussard's name had a LOT of air badges underneath it. I went to her BB Profile and counted up 30 completed BBs! So, I've awarded her the BB20 badge!

I got 20 badge bits!
If the offer is still open, I would love to receive a packet of Sepp Holzer Grains, though I would need to do additional research to do them justice in planting properly.

It will be a while until I get bb40, work season is starting back up. But for now!

I'm probably not the only one, but I've been really looking forward to doing the tool care work. I really like hand tools and their maintenance...

1 gardening - chop and drop
2 textile - mend a hole in gloves
3 textile - quick darning
4 roundwood - shaving horse
5 roundwood - club style mallet
6 roundwood - 2 coat hooks from branch crotch
7 roundwood - carving spoon
8 homesteading - clean gutters
9 community - brand a location
10 dimensional wood - simple open toolbox
11 dimensional wood - make a sign
12 nest - wash dishes by hand
13 nest - make rags from old clothes
14 nest - clean a kitchen
15 nest - clean an oily dish without soap
16 tool care - sharpen a knife
17 tool care - remove rust, clean and oil a hand tool
18 roundwood - make a lightweight spoon you can eat with
19 gardening - seed saving
20 greywater - give urine to growies
