  1. Power company

    Just wrote an article about this here, interested to hear what you think of this phenomenon.
  2. The old AUWC pavilion

    Whats the law on properties like this? Can you legally walk around? If a door is closed and easy enough to force (and the building is abandoned) can you give it a hard shove and take a look? Or is it one of those- its illegal but not enforced?

    Politics are a bad idea on every forum in my experience. too easy to take things personally.
  4. The old AUWC pavilion

    That is unbelievably cool @zackmars !
  5. I always do find it interesting how people react and/or deal with situations I am unlikely to encounter in my neck of the woods. Thanks for sharing!
  6. Is this kinda thing safe to use indoors/with limited ventilation?
  7. Solar Energy System

    I like your definition's mate.
  8. Make it yourself [DIYs & Modifications]

    +1 literally. Whenever @Gary_Gough responds, I grab a cup of tea and make time so that I don't mentally implode.
  9. The old AUWC pavilion

    Nice pics mate, back in the days I was into Urban Exploration and these sort of abandoned buildings fascinating. I always wonder who owns the deed and if it would ever be viable to buy the land and build something cool (and resilient!). Just look at the views in the second pic!
  10. Smart approach, but how will that help you in an area where gun crime is high? I know here in the UK its super rare (fringe benefit of being an island with very few ways to smuggle in contraband like firearms) but then again I imagine in Washington D.C, the risk of a gun being pulled on you during a mugging would be high, no?
  11. That looks crazy @PappyHiker , mouth watering now. Ok so we are gonna need some more information- how do you smoke without a smoker?
  12. DAK canned ham disappointment

    One of the tastiest things (in my opinion) is fried spam + eggs on ramen with some chopped up chives. Never heard of Dak spam though- what was the difference between that and spam?
  13. Solar Energy System

    My security software (Zemana) refused to even open the link, banned the guy and removed his pdf link.
  14. check those preps.

    I switched to IMR Li-ion batteries for all my preps for that exact reason, the amount of AA Alkalines that leaked on me over the years is crazy.
  15. Shelter in Place, how have you prepared.

    So essentially you have the pre-fabricated "parts" to build a homebrew containment chamber? Sounds like a great plan although I have no knowledge of its real world viability- did you follow a guide and how do we test its resilience (although anything is better than nothing, to be honest!)?
