Famous people caught reading the forum.  G M called for thugs paying a price and suddenly the Governor is calling National Guard from other states, and Minneapolis Police are making arrests of people who shoot at our troops in military vehicles positioned in the neighborhood:    [WHERE WAS THIS LAST YEAR?]

According to the allegations in the criminal complaint, during the early morning hours of April 18, 2021, a team of Minnesota National Guard soldiers, along with an officer of the Minneapolis Police Department, was stationed at the corner of Penn Avenue North and West Broadway Avenue in Minneapolis. At approximately 4:20 a.m., a light-colored SUV driving on West Broadway Avenue fired multiple shots at the team. One bullet went through the windshield of the team’s military vehicle, which held four soldiers. Two soldiers of the Minnesota National Guard sustained minor injuries: one was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment of injuries from shattered glass; the other was treated at the scene for superficial wounds.

[I own a city block a rifle shot away from that incident.]

They could have elected law and order candidates and saved us the drama and carnage of the past year.

Sorry, though the article is dead on with the mob rule/intimidation aspects of the case, the St. Chauvin spiel is utter horseshit.

re. Protecting your local business from looters

He concludes, don't, meaning don't stay there and try to defend it.  Yes, I got out of the neighborhood shortly after the "verdict celebration" started.

What I see for protection on E. Lake St and W. Broadway in Minneapolis is plywood over the windows with a sign on the plywood that says "Black Owned Business".  In the plan accordingly playbook, you bought your plywood pre-covid.

Nothing slows all night violence committed in Minneapolis by people who came from as far as Texas like 32 degrees overnight last night.  ))

No and no and that is no accident.  I regard infowars and Alex Jones as scurrilous.

Good stuff, Doug.

As soon as the snow melts, I am GTFO my current location and moving to a much more rural and cold environment.
Just hoping the hyperinflation/global depression waits for me to get moved.


https://www.solarreviews.com/blog/best-solar-generators

Start with this.


Agreed.  I have been doing this for some time.  I rebuilt my 1880 house in the mountains with this type of energy before I connected to the grid.  I generally buy cheap components on ebay or locally, but these are some nice products; I like the Yeti.

Some other advice from the north country:
1. One of the first readiness conveniences with power off and heat out is a fully working electric blanket.  Standard ones are less than 200 watts.  Buy the inverter for twice that wattage and enough battery capacity.  One deep cycle battery goes a long way.  Electric blanket requires the 'Pure Sine Wave' inverter to work.  I make a long winter drive often (skiing in the mountains this week).  A powered electric blanket is a key winter travel accessory for me.
2. Buy and wrap heat tape on critical pipes n your home such as your water meter and plumbing pipes and fixtures.  I've had furnaces go off when not home and in vacant homes.  The heat tape comes on when the pipe temp hits 38 degrees, so it costs you nothing in electricity to be plugged in and ready.  These would be good to hook up to backup power in that they use very low wattage.  In an emergency, heat the people and then the plumbing pipes first.  One point about freezing up your water meter, which I've done twice, a prepper might not be eager to invite the city into your home, and the City generally owns the water utility.
3. Natural gas and propane generators.  If you have piped natural gas to your home (or propane), there is no reason your furnace should be off when the electricity goes off, but it does go off.  Typical furnace fan needs about 800 watts.  I haven't done this but I should.  They make one called tri-fuel.  If you have gas, you shouldn't be without electricity, even if it is just to recharge your batteries.
4.  Buy gas or propane heaters for backup that don't require electricity.  My tankless gas water heater lights with two D batteries that last a year.  In an electrical outage, I still have endless hot water.  Wall heaters can be bought for gas heat with no electricity required.  Same for gas fireplace inserts. 
5. In one off grid setting we use a propane powered refrigerator/freezer.  One more thing that doesn't have to run off the generator and can run when the generator is off.

6. Buy a CO detector if you are using gas combustion of any kind.  Buy the one with the digital display so that if you ever do get a reading, you know what the CO level is.  I carry one in the car for winter emergencies, in case I've pulled over and need to leave the car/heat running.
