The wood burning stove or more affectionately the wood stove was a mainstay and center of many a home, giving up dominance as a necessary appliance in the home to the likes of coal, natural gas and electricity. The woodstove gradually lost its dominance on the heating scene bit by bit with the passing years and inventions, the stove and its predecessor the fireplace became more an aesthetic decoration rather than the efficient appliance it is, being relegated to the alternative section.

Inspired by Ayn Rand’s book Atlas Shrugged and the Character John Galt. Our goal is to teach and share every possible “Legal” method of reducing and eliminating our tax footprints thereby starving the banker oligarchies of the world.
Mission: To share every idea possible to cut our production, expenses, and taxes to starve the banker oligarchy.
Description: We will accomplish our goals by learning how to reduce our labor and expenses within the “looters and moochers” economy, and redirecting our efforts more towards our own “personal” economies (our own Galt’s Gultch).
I was asked if I would write an article on “Prepping and Self-Reliance in Northern Idaho”. I laughed and replied, “But I can’t write!” However, truth be told, writing is one of my many passions. Mushroom hunting is another. I love being out in the great outdoors…exploring, treasure hunting, taking in the fresh air and all the beauty that abounds here in the mountainous regions of North Idaho.
This year marks the 18th winter at my current location, roughly 2400 ft. elevation, a driveway that is 8/10ths of a mile long and 13% grade in spots. Getting down the hill?

In the winter of 96-97 the driveway resembled the Olympic Luge Run, seriously, eight foot walls of compact snow and absolutely NO room for error. Here, being prepared is Continue reading We are prepared and no one goes hungry on the mountain!→
