    Living without money

    I'd say that is exactly what she does...trades her way around the place. There is something about her that makes me want to support her (trading doesn't always have this "feel" about it....there are people I've met who come across like beggars or something and I wanna kick 'em!). Reminds me of the guy who traded one red paperclip and within a year he'd traded the final item of exchange for a house in Alaska somewhere.

  6. Hey, it's on my Amazon wish list. I try and buy multiple items at one time to save on postage which seems to double the price of the book (!). Hope you capitalise on the best feature of being a published author - instant credibility.

    Water from the air

    Howdy howdy, Probably you have heard of this - I had, but I hadn't found the article. IMHO one of the best things you can do aside from storing water is being able to generate it at will. You may already know there are moves afoot to make water something that is for those who can pay for it so FGS get one or two of these babies before it is too late! Here it is: <script src='http://img135.imageshack.us/shareable/?i=eco59marcparent.jpg&p=tl' type='text/javascript'></script><noscript></noscript> The article goes on to say the device works best in environments that have humidity and wind but I wonder if there are times (sunrise/sunset) that it could work well in a less humid environment.
  8. I've heard really good things about CR. There is a raw food guy who was building a sustainable community over there and also raved about it. In Sovereign Man Simon has mentioned it several times. There was a link from his ezine to a video called "breaking free" which had stories of people who moved to CR as a permanent lifestyle change. Fascinating. I agree with the idea of having alternative countries to flee to should the need arise so CR sounds like a good back up to me. Suggest you ask Simon his opinion about CR as he is a permanent traveller so very knowledgeable on benefits/downsides of any country.

  10. From the graph it looks like a loss in value of over half would bring prices back in line.
  11. I imagine it is very difficult to convince an ex shoe-shine executive his/her new found wealth wasn't a direct result of a global fluke.

    Frost Protection Device

    Oooh, just found this link with something similar. It involves electrostatic fields to increase yield of crops/grow time (the above uses magnetic field which sounds a little naff, but I would take a try it and see approach BEFORE I decided it was total crap). FASCINATING http://www.urzeit-code.com/index.php?id=23
  14. Came across this and thought it might be an interesting/potientially mega $$$ saving experiment for all you self sufficent types out there. If it doesn't work, you lose a little time and a small amount of money to cover materials. Worth the investment IMHO. http://www.relfe.com/2010/frost_protection...rost_guard.html NOT a sales page, but an article explaining how to build your own anti frost thingy. Key points:
