I have them all in the active threads list TY :)

Now share away. Instead of waiting for replies, just tell the story continuously. For an intermission, answer a few questions here and there.


I don't understand what you mean "active threads list TY" but I will try to answer any questions that I can. Do you have any questions for me? I don't know everything so I can only answer what I know.

Re: What is the first thing you will do when you have no Internet and no electrical and it lasts for years.
I got about 10 car batteries and an inverter set-up so should be fine with heat, light, water pumpage etc.

Also set up a stationary bike that can create energy to be stored in batteries for later use, it does take a lot of biking just for a little energy, but totally worth it.

Got lots of wood and 3 acres for food, good sun, etc so I will be fine.

Also OP is full of shit, so all these preps that I have are worthless, but they were fun to put together.

OP don't scare the weak, even if you think it is for a good cause.

Re: What is the first thing you will do when you have no Internet and no electrical and it lasts for years.
So, what action, and planning proved to be most effective according to historians "from your time", OP?


We scattered into the wilderness of the Rocky Mountains for 17 years. There were occasionally other people we met, passers by and such. They shared any news they might have heard, and we shared our food and shelter. We lived off of the land and hunted most days. Storing our food in caves with snow that never melted if it wasn't in the sun. The hunting was sparse but enough to get us by along with our food stores. We had access to fresh water and water filtration. Lived in a cabin and chopped much firewood for our stove which heated the cabin and cooked our meals. You really have to age your firewood, at least 2 years. Most people think you can just cut it and burn it right away. I will admit I never had to start a fire, my father had a box of several hundred lighters and matches and flint and fuel. Basically anything we would ever need to start a fire, but sometimes simple kindling was hard to come by. We burned the pages of many books crumpled up to start fires. We hated burning books, so of course we ranked them most favorite to least favorite. Then we didn't feel quite so bad that it would be a book we would miss.
 Quoting: Jacob Time


"chopped much firewood"
ok, you got an axe

"simple kindling was hard to come by"
with an axe, you make your own kindling

Go hunting, cut some firewood and relax with a cold beer and a campfire...

Really, people need to relax...Yes, things would change in an instant, but its not the end of the world.

Civilizations have survived 10s of 1000s of years with no electricity

Re: What is the first thing you will do when you have no Internet and no electrical and it lasts for years.
Hey JT, serious question here. Why would your family leave Boulder if there were no electricity and go to the higher altitude of the mountains? It is colder, windier, snowier up there. How much was the town functioning when your family left? When you returned, the residents had obviously kept some technology alive, or the time machine would not have been ready so quickly. Any hints on how to be in the group that somehow preserves and protects that type of technology?
