“. . .plus set aside some nice used rags for cleaning patches”

That is old school, we use cleaning ropes, one pull and it is cleaned and oiled!

Second, I have been cutting wood most of my life, KI have three chainsaws with full chisel chains, Huskys.

We have more than 500 acres of land with all the wood we will ever need and our drive way is exactly one mile to our house. We raise fish, our own ducks for eggs (free range), and there are plenty of wild life for additional food if and when needed.

I can't believe how funny everyone thinks this is! You are either ignorant of what is coming or just don't care, either way, being prepared is nothing to be chided or laughed at!

Remember the story of the animal that would not help gather food for the winter, electing instead to play while others stored their food. Winter came and he had no food and demanded his neighbors feed him. Guess what happened!

Well damn! He put up the 500 cords of wood!

I noticed that. 64,000 cubic feet of firewood. That would heat my house for 100 years and that is 5800 heating degree days per year.

Then again you have to look at the market value of that much wood. If confiscated, it would pay a families obamacare bill for 20 years.

I think it was a typo. I hope it was.

I know a gent who was trapped in his attic during the breaching of the dikes in Walkeren in WWII. All he had were tulip bulbs set aside because of their great emergency value.

He sold tulips for diamonds. Gold was useless since the Germans were always looking for it. Hard to hide.

Firewood is probably worth something in urban areas after Obama shuts down electricity.

Thank you my fellow American! This is suppose to be a “conservative” blog site. Yes, all I see being posted is: “how stupid, ignorant, and hayseed can you get!”

These so called “conservatives” are only conservatives when it is convenient to them. they forget about “rugged individualism” that made this Country into the most powerful on the face of this earth!

When the SHTF who do you think these so called conservatives will turn to for help, the liberal socialist, or the rugged individual American who has prepared for this kind of scenario?

Guess what i will be telling them?

Firewood is probably worth something in urban areas after Obama shuts down electricity.

True. Market value here is about $75K (500 cords "hardwood"), however the wood has to be seasoned, stacked and protected or else it becomes useless for burning. Five Hundred Cord stacks spaced properly with ventilation and tarp covers would take up about .65 acres. Add in road access for a pickup truck and it is probably more like an acre for storage. It is possible, but I still believe it is a bit of a typo.

I built a nice A frame for wood storage adjacent to my barn. Bolted together with post ups, because of municipal rules related to permanent versus temp structures. I have six chords stored in there. It takes a great deal of work and space just to maintain a small woodlot.

Just saying. A good cash business, but a hard one on the margins.

I just did quick price check. That’s also about $150,000 worth of firewood. We know he didn’t do it himself because the man hours would be off the charts.

500 face cord is NOT a typo! And, by the way, you stated: “. . . because of municipal rules related to permanent versus temp structures . . .” You sure wouldn’t want to violate government zoning controls by actually storing a proper amount of firewood you may or may not need!

This is exactly my point, only conservative when it is cconvienent. Zoning is nothing more than a government wet-dream established by socialist to control private property. Instead of fighting it, yoiu sucumed to it and now believe it to be the norm!

Get me the hell out of this upside down world where private pproperty rights are bad and government zoning control is viewed as a necessary evil that you are willing to live with for the good of the many!

You left that out initially. Now your case is more plausible.

Where is this land of yours? ;o)

Around here it is about $150 per cord (hardwood). Depends where in the country I guess you are. I'm sure the firewood would command a much higher price in urban areas.

I am recovering from an injury and surgery right now, but normally I cut my own. It usually takes me a weekend to drop, cut, haul, split and stack a cord (all manual). That would be a lot of work. Then again I need a wife like his to do all of those things. ;-)

The delivery of your message is what is being slighted. Not your reasoning or methods. There is understood sentiments and logic in your planning. We accept preppers.

You started off your post with, “...I told my wife to....”. You followed that with the list of orders. That is commical in a world of self reliant, patriotic and conservative Christians.

My FRiend, don’t be offended. The panic delivery is under more scrutiny than your plan.

Now, when can I visit? I hope you live in OK or TX.

Not at all. We live in a rural area and we want to keep it that way. Met with the zoning officer. He liked the design and went with it for himself to keep it off the books. Sounds like you are having a battle with the world. You will not survive this as a lone wolf.

500 face cord is NOT a typo!

Now it is "500 face cords". So you are claiming it is only 166 full cords now. Are you sure your face cords aren't ricks? That would get you down to a somewhat believable 83 full cords. Yeah, you changed your story so I have to call it BS. Heck, with your math I have over 60 cords cut and stacked around my property. Wow! I better put that gate on my driveway.

Here is what I instructed my wife to do (except she just rolled her eyes):
Step 1: Find out who the hell Obama's attorneys are.
Step 2: Find out how Barry doctored his SSN, Selective Service Records, birth documents and do the same.
Step 3: Find the officials that sealed all of Obama's previous records and do the same.
Step 4: Hire Bill Ayers to write a bogus set of autobiographies, make stuff up, and change my past.
Step 5: GET OUT OF DODGE

Is that really true, you have a problem with 500 face cords of firewood at a time this country is about to go off the cliff, civil dfisobediance is about to break out and the government is going to demand you turn over your private business to them.

all you can post is about how you can’t believe I have 500 face cords?

you really need to get out more!

No you originally said 500 "cords". You changed your story when caught. That makes you a liar. We have enough problems with a country full of liars right now. We don't need more.
