Let's talk prepping

>What is your prepping situation like?
>What situation are you preparing for?
>What is something you could expand/do more of?
>What is your biggest issue right now?

I'll start

>What is your prepping situation like?
About a weeks worth of food and water, maybe a little more, plus firewood
>What situation are you preparing for?
Power outages, primarily during winter time. That or something getting fucky with the drinking water.
>What is something you could expand/do more of?
Mainly getting a proper rotation of food & water going, plus getting a small stock of freeze-dried stuff with 10+ year shelf life to hide away.
>What is your biggest issue right now?
Simple perishables needing to be chilled, like butter, cheese etc are going to be fucked quickly if the power goes, and I haven't really found out a good replacement to cover that.

Damping off - Apple tree seedlings

No.2672717 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
I started some apple seeds (yea I know not true to type, I don't care)
This is what I did:

- stratified in fridge for 3 weeks (ziploc bag with soil)
- potted them (they were already starting to sprout) under indoor grow light
- they grew OK for 1 month (true leaves were formed), then all 20 of them damped off suddenly, within 3 day window. I was watering from bottom

What went wrong? I can think of a couple of things:

1. - high fungal growth due to discrete temperature rise - in nature apple seeds experience gradually increasing bacterial/fungal counts, as the season warms into spring. In my case it went fridge (38F) to 75F room temperature overnight.

This may have caused bacterial/fungal explosions which the plants immune systems weren't designed for

2. - grow light spectrum gaps - in the past, I had a grow light which couldn't produce true leaves. Tomatoes and watermelons never grew true leaves under it. Once I put them outside, they did fine.

This is a different light, but I bought a cheap plastic spectroscope, and both this one and the past one have a small gap in the light blue part of the spectrum.

What it can't be:
- soil. This is my backyard's soil and everything else grows fine in it as long as it's planted inground
- lack of light. It was very bright and I monitored the light duration

The foliage in the eastern US in the fall is much, much nicer than the foliage in the western US.

Where can a tentlet live and work a comfy loser job like groundskeeper or janny or even park ranger or something that doesn't Jew you over misdemeanors and live in a tent/car to save up and experience nature and get away from gangstalkers and voice to skull?

Camping "Out Of Bounds" is a Class 2 Misdemeanor??

No.2672267 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Eric Hanson could have gotten 6 months in jail and 5 yrs probation plus a $5000 fine for sleeping 200 yards away from the permitted campsite after rescuing a friend who had rabdo. A Class 2 Misdemeanor category contains crimes like violent assault (punching someone at a bar). Source:

What would you do in this situation? He takes a plea deal for no jail and 1k fine, but I think I'd be pissed enough to take it to a jury trial rather than be convicted of a Class 2 Misdemeanor.
