survival hermitage book 3


SURVIVAL HERMITAGE BOOK 3
INTRODUCTION continued
Land was easy, contrary to a lifetime indoctrination by the same percentage of people who will die violently and righteously in the coming civilization implosion, near about 99.999% of the population.  They either wanted to make money off of the sweat of your brow, even as their ass crack sweated from sitting for far too many hours doing nothing but shuffling papers, the only exertion being breathing around all the rolls of their fat, or they were Supreme Dumbasses Of The Universe and tried to justify spending far too much for city on grid housing and wanted to draw you into their pain paradigm.
*
And you thought they were your friends.  No, sorry, your best friend will steal the promotion from behind your back, and the mother of your children will legally kidnap them and auction off a pittance of time with them for large amounts of your pay.  People are crap, only partially excused by the fact that this is a resource contraction we are living through.  Now, since they lied about the options of land, to benefit themselves at your expense, what else are they less than honest about? 
*
Oh, I don’t know, how about the automobile, shelter, government oversight, the need for a tribe and the need for a live in bitch.  Yes, they lied about all of that, too.  Let us take my favorite nemesis, after the FLIR scope.  An automobile.  Every single swinging cheese dingus survivalist past the odd one or two, in the course of a lifetime, screams bloody murder at me when I even suggest that the auto is a curse of the evil types of gods.  You think they look at me funny when I tell them semi-auto’s are stupid? 
*
That is NOTHING compared to their swelling sphincter at the very thought of an internal combustion engine powered conveyance.  I’ll hear every excuse in the book about how an automobile is as essential as air or fiber in their diet.  If I gave them a choice between taking their first born or them giving up their car, I’d be running an orphanage.  Sure, just like sometimes you have no choice but to own a semi ( too close to civilization, far too many adversaries ), sometimes a car is your only option ( living in the boonies with a car or the city without one ).
*
But the fact that NOBODY wants to believe the car is an evil, even if a necessary evil, the fact that nobody can conceive of an alternative except in Rapture levels of world ending events, tells me that most folks prize the car over their very life.  Because giving up a car allows you to give up your job ( if in conjunction with junk land ), and it allows you to set up the safest survival retreat available.  Since they’d rather keep the car with a shiny path right to their retreat door, they are suicidal over the thing.
*
Shelter and land are usually mixed in most people’s minds, because a piece of land without a house is a foreign concept to them.  Life without a flushing toilet is a mystery.  Not that they ever would go flushless.  If they were teleported back through time, the sight of a chamberpot ( and a horse rather than a car ) would give them a heart attack, they would void their bowels one last time, and die.  But to a few clear thinkers, not only can NOT flushing turds free you from a crappy life ( get it? ), so can rethinking shelter.
*
Land is what you need first.  Lots are in limited supply, so don’t dally.  Then, worse comes to worse, you can dig a hovel and cut your own lumber.  A shovel and ax, with a roll of thick plastic being a really good bonus item, are really all you need later for rudimentary shelter.  Shelter can not only wait, it can be super deluxe cheap.  Shelter doesn’t have to be a thirty year expense.  It can be a Under One Month’s Wages expense.  Anyone telling you differently is ignorant or greedy.
*
From watching the globalist corporation owned propaganda spewing media, you might get the idea that most folks love socialism and Big Obammy Government.  And you would be correct.  When rugged individualist macho Pry The Gun Out Of My Dead Hand neighbor is in the middle of paying his thirty year mortgage, secretly all those government dictates helping him increase his property values gives him raging morning wood.  If a dictatorship gets folks extra money, they are first to Sig Heil. Jerks.  By living out where a SWAT team would actually have to dismount from their tank and-HORROR!-walk to your abode, you can avoid most government.
*
Okay, there are drones, but you get my point.  As for the alleged need for tribe, while technically true, it isn’t necessary in your life time.  Just as you don’t need a farm because you can far cheaper store grain ( sure, adding butter and bacon to toast is preferable, but you don’t have the time or money to get picky ) than grow it, you can substitute a lot of tribal functions with Oil Age tools.  And while I certainly don’t like the fact there is that need, we will discuss why there is little choice.
*
If you get past the need for an expensive house or a car, the last trump card everyone always plays against Survival Hermitage is the fact that they don’t want to be along, without a wife.  I discount the MGTOW folks because, frankly, they are humped in the head, just not right!  The normal male seeks companionship.  After a certain age, perhaps not.  But certainly most always do.  Call me a sissy, but I like cuddling.  You need not be a hermit monk, just a hermit.  If you can learn to downward adjust your expectations, there are plenty of gals out there.
*
You’ll have to wait on that one.  Details will abound, for that and all else mentioned.  It helps that society has gotten so dysfunctional ( the Other Color influences reaching a tripping point in killing WASP culture ) that leaving it is far more of a temptation than it ever was before.  And it is Lemon Squeezy Easy any more.

  1. Yep. A domicile if a form of structure and in regulated territory is just a street address, county parcel number, and not fully yours. Unless as Jim frequently reminds, minions must be as far removed from those government tentacles as possible to avoid being molested (literally and likely violently) by the system. Government, their police enforcers, and related enabler departments are in place for the system. NOT there for your citizen betterment, don't be fooled, it's not going to serve you come collapsy time. Be adapted to evacuate and relocate from your here and now place should circumstance require it anyway. I use vehicles now pre collapse, understanding full well it is a means to an end. (Employment, supply cargo movement, recon and scouting, etc) I won't cry too hard come collapse, when there is no fuel, no safe passage, no parts or repairs, etc. I have road flares and a bit of petrol to torch the sucker when no going back oil age time comes. Keep at it Jim!

    1. I let a Mexican pay me $90 to strip the widows, mirrors, bumper and etc. on the old beater RV puller. It wasn't nearly as satisfying as torching the sucker to free myself of its evil influence.

    2. In Dingoland some poor sap was following the Bison plan in his own way (not me). He owned some land and was camped out on it minding his own business. The council wasn't having it. Let's be clear, he wasn't exactly in surburbia and had no visible neighbours.

  2. “Land is what you need first.”


    The other day my cousin and I struck up a conversation with a local kid (we live in a rural area). This kid was your stereotypical “country goober” (Think Gomer Pyle, minus the shit eating grin, and working at the “fudge factory” of course :D ). He went on about how he was likely to secure a job working 6 days a week, 10 hour days, @ $20 something odd dollars an hour, as one of those tree maintenance workers (Think Davey Tree).

    His plans were in this order: Go out and buy a new car, then go out and buy a bunch of guns, then get some land. He wanted around 50 acres of land, with rolling hills, meadows, a stream running through it, and a good amount of woods, which here in Commiefornia, would probably cost him a couple of million dollars, and about $10k in taxes a year (And high taxes he will be paying on it, as our new gov Newsom completes the transformation to Mexifornia).

    As soon as he had left, my cousin and I almost blurted out in unison, “The hell with the car and the guns, get the land, you idiot”. Of course his land requirements were totally unrealistic, and he would probably never even be able to fulfill that dream alone.

  3. So you keep pressing to push all of us to move out ( in my case the swamp ) yet no details of things like storage of weapons ,ammo etc. Which not only need kept away from moisture. Also there is a question of security for said stuff. Crack heads just love easy pickings.
    When you were living at the BPOD and still leaving on your bike for the day to work. How and where did you store valuables and arsenal etc. ?
    In addition , to remain in compliance of legality where did your human waste go ? I know how I deal with such but many minions might need some instruction on this very important subject. After shtf , the rules change of course , but in many ways for health reasons it needs discussion for the city boy neophyte and red neck troglodyte. Otherwise they end up shitting upstream . That might tend to piss off the neighbors if their water supply gets contaminated eh.
    Getting bare ground is easy the hard part is in the details.

    1. Yeah, I guess it has been some time since I covered all this. Time really is slipping away fast. Well, this book is as good a place as any to rehash. Speaking of waterproof, and I know it is low hanging fruit, like pro wrestling, but I was watching Doomsday Preppers on YouTube and here was an idiot vacuum sealing a rifle ( good ) and not removing the charging handle so the shrink wrap had a natural weak point ( bad ). What can I say, I can't resist the Siren call. It seems season three had far less obvious BS than the first two, but that isn't saying a whole lot.

    2. PS-I got a three month trial offer for Kindle Unlimited for 99cents. I couldn't resist. Any decent authors you can pass on to me?

    3. Bruno Miller- EMP series, a father son cross-country drive in an older blazer...occasional useful tidbits
      Leo Nix- " Sundown Apocalypse series" ...down under militia porn but readable entertaining
      Akarts new Yellowstone series ...last book yet to release.
      I'll keep it in mind and post more later as I might hopefully remember more. One of the problems with Kindle unlimited is that you don't retain copies so names and titles don't tend to stick...should write t down and keep a record of all that I've read , I guess.

    4. I actually decided to join again just for the Akart Yellowstone series. Read the first yesterday and about to sit down to finish the second one. Not great, a bit derivative, but he does keep me flipping the pages. I'll check out the other two, new to me. Thank you!

  4. I could see securing a vehicle, if only temporary, if it were a means to an end. So you pick up a cheap, barely running pickup (It only has to get you to point A). You stuff it with as many items as you think you will need to get you through the rest of your existence (ax’s, sharpening stones, pots, pans, a stove, clothing, shelter materials, etc). You drive as far as you can out into the wilderness, and when it conks out, you’ve arrived at your destination, and can then turn your back on this cesspool that we call a civilization, never to look back :D

    Incidentally, that’s exactly what the Maine hermit did, but his plan had a fatal flaw. He relied on stealing necessities from local cabins, for his continued existence. It took 27 years, but it finally caught up with him. If only a fellow by the name of Bison had existed back in 1985 when the Maine hermit had made his decision, his plan might have had a happier outcome.

    1. I doubt anyone will dredge enough gold to finance their escape, so, yes, SOME interaction with people is going to be needed. As long as it can be minimized. And yes, I know, it is like not working. Then, anyone giving you orders is harder, not easier. So even those minimal visits to civilization will REALLY suck. But not as much as going to jail.

    2. Ya, nibble around edges of society. Be that old harmless coot in western movies that is a familiarity but not tied down by that town or society. This will get needs or resupplied done, then drift off into the wilderness or under your rock. Play it as straight (as possible) there will be both law and righteous citizen enforcement of their own rule systems in play.

    3. Everyone loves old coots. Harmless AND entertaining.

  5. I shrunk wrapped an (extra) ar15 carbine couple of years ago, as a truck gun / back up / experiment. Oiled well, wrapped in cloth to take off the edges so to speak. Used long roll bag, double seal end seams, held vacuum seal all along. In soft case back cab of truck Nevada summer and winter, so far, so good. Do-able. Maybe a grease - cosmoline type coating and double bag to be an extremist. It will be like other buried historical treasures post apocalypse, or a life buoy in dire circumstances. Those little minion pearls of wisdom will win the day.

  6. I've been reading you for nearly a decade. I found you only because Rawles linked to you back then (a cruel irony, so don't be too hard on him) and I think this post is in the Top Ten of your finest.

    1. Why, thank you. Perhaps this edition of the hermitage book is off to a much better start. I disagree with nearly everything Rawles ever said or did, but I respected his achievements. But after getting an editor for the blog, that publication jumped the shark. It is crap compared to its former self. The content is the same, I don't judge that. I just look at it as if no one is trying anymore. Too many articles are short and too basic. Where is the meat we used to get? Also, pandering to the lowest common denominator so as not to offend. The blog just went to crap, after MORE people were working on it. WTF?? This is why I lost my patience and am so disappointed with him. Now I freely mock rather than respectfully disagree. Hey, I appreciate you sticking around. Good minion!

      Delete
    2. I completely agree. He was already successful, but then decided to monetize the blog to a new level. I lost all respect for him then. He turned 'huckster' on us, and you were the first to identify that fact.

  7. Ever cut down a hardwood tree, say 8" in dia, with an axe? 99% of the populace can't do it. Even with a razor sharp axe it is quite a chore. Which direction is it gonna fall, is it gonna fall on you? What if it snaps while you're in mid swing? Then you gotta do it all over again horizontally on the ground, many more times, after you strip the limbs off. It's very tough work. I have cut down exactly 1 oak tree about that size with an axe and I doubt I ever will again.

    Ever did a deep/large hole in normal soil? Not that desert dry stuff that can be pick mattocked loose, dense packed soil. With roots and rocks. I have done that too, but very little. I know when I've been bested. Again, 99% of the population can't do it. The rest won't. Thats why I have 4 chainsaws and an earth auger.

    1. My brain could be playing tricks on me but I could have sworn the "void" is common usage. I never chopped wood outside pine. I wasn't trying to make light of the work building a primitive shelter, just prioritizing the budget. It would be far from easy making bow and arrows, but you COULD, so you could be armed. So at an extreme case of poverty you would re-prioritize away from purchasing weapons and do food instead. That was my thinking on the land and shelter. What do you HAVE to buy and what can you do yourself, trading labor for money ( I can't do it myself, anymore ).

      Delete
    2. Ever seen those wood cutter saws that are about 4' to 6' long and have giant teeth? I think that would be the better way to go for felling and cutting up trees, but, it takes 2 people for the most part, one on each end of the saw. I've never used a BIG one.

      I have a couple smaller ones, bowsaws, maybe 18" or so with giant teeth and they tear into wood like a rabid bearcat but they will wear you out right quick because of the pressure you have to constantly supply to keep them from getting stuck in the kerf.

      Then there's the little man method of chipping at the tree with a 1 handed hatchet. Takes a lot longer but much more doable by average people than an 8 lb axe.

      You can go out in the woods in freezing weather dressed to the 9's and about 10 minutes into axe cutting a stout oak you'll be stripped to the waist and sweating like plow ox.

  8. Glad you are continuing the survival hermitage. I hate being dependent on my van. It is running bad, so I did a tuneup and it didn't help. Took it to the mechanic and 1100 dollars later, it still runs like excrement. But on the bright side I have a new catalytic converter that I didn't need. Can't wait for more.

    1. The RV puller had a similar history before I finally retired the bitch for good. She was a valiant steed and I salute her, but it was time to rest. Every bit of work, by the best mechanic in town ( so reported ), just made things worse. The only luck with old tired vehicles I ever had was the older VW's.

      Delete
    2. Usually any more, if you keep a vehicle long enough you get to the point where you're putting more money into it in repairs than you would if you just bought a newer vehicle. Last week I had to put $451 worth of starter on my 2001 Blazer. Thought about doing it myself but once again I was convinced the way they build vehicles now a days you have to have a lift, a big compressor and air tools and a BIG Snap-On box slammed with $20k worth of tools, and a top of the line reference source. Just to do now what every 16 yo male did on his back in the driveway with pocket change and a handful of basic tools just 50 years ago.

      But hey!, now I got seatbelts that alert me in 4 differnt colors and sounds when I don't use them and $2k each airbags to save my miserable life if some illegal crashes into me on one of the 2 lane backroads during the 2000 miles per year I drive.

  9. We live near the outskirts of goofball central == Eugene Oregon.

    Just like the yuge rodents called Nutria, the place is infested with bums on bicycles pulling bike trailers. The local builder of bicycle trailers is Burley.

    "I'm going out at 2am after I get cranked. Going to fill my Burley with car batteries and aluminum. Wage-slaves are easy to rob..."

    On other forums such as comma Rawles comma, I patiently explained the difference between wage-slaves and the shadow people. As I experienced them.

    My thoughtful and oft-humorous observations fell on deaf eyes and blind ears. Horrors, I discovered everything I know is wrong. The on-grid theory-ists at their keyboards weren't to be dissuaded by reality.

    Normalcy Bias has the kommandos leaving The Big City just prior to The Sudden Big Change, driving hundreds of miles, waving to their lessers enroute to their hidey-hole at 7000feet in the Sierra Nevada mountains. What could possibly go wrong.

    And this's OK.

    Based on my experience during only a few decades this and last century, the fUSA post-die-off ( PDO ) survival of one in a hundred-thousand sounds about right.

    That group will primarily be street-smart Caucasians, with a few Other Colors and persons of the Jewish religion. Based on their aptitude for getting into mischief, I strongly doubt any mohammedans will be around to complain about the lack of understanding and tolerance.

  10. One of the reasons i no longer follow Ron Foster is his schilling of products to yuppie scum.
    I'll admit that his method of getting manufactures to give him prep stuff , by mentioning the item in his books. Is a good scam to obtain the stuff tho...
    His stories are good however.

    1. re:
      Ron Foster

      My experience with the author is limited to ( unknown number, 2? 5? ) offerings I fast-scanned then canned. My verdict:
      Hastily-scribbled by a 10-year old. Not worth ridiculing in a review. Hardly in the same league as comma and his tiring GAY NINETIES or the derivative PATRIOTS series.

      And comma is hardly in the same league as John Ross UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES.

      And Ross is noplace near Robert Heinlein during his peak with MOON IS A HARSH MISTRESS and FRIDAY.

      On the plus side, the elder missus Clinton, vaguely apparently somehow allegedly associated with the Clinton Crime Syndicate, is still running. Hope everlasting, and change waiting outside the ropes ready to tap-in. Go, PantsSuit Nation, go!

    2. Hmmm, now, I love Heilein even if I have strong feeling that he went a bridge too far on the incest issue, and I loved "Friday" ( although I think I enjoyed "Cat Who Walked Through Walls" best ), but I'd say that John Ross went for quality over Heilein's quantity. H was more of the pulp fiction era, even if one of the top masters. Obviously, it is a subjective ranking. Ron Foster is terrible. A hack. Sometimes, not often, it is mind candy when you don't want anything too rich. Not that I'd miss him if the Internet blew up tomorrow. Question. Why is Hilary still alive? She was doing Alzheimer Annie Funky Chicken dances years ago. Did they download her Super Power Evil into a drone?

    3. Heinlein, Clarke, Asimov. The Big Three of 2nd half of 20th century speculative fiction. Of course, there were important works done by others, but few came close in volume + quality. Asimov wrote a huge amount of non-fiction that is especially good for science-interested home schooled kids.
      Methusalah's Children by RAH was an interesting look at how poorly regular people behave when they believe that someone/somegroup has the secret to a healthy lifetime 2-6x theirs. 1930's Germans seem totally reasonable v. Jews in comparison.
      I liked Friday a lot. Many casual background details of bio-tech, crypto-money & police State are here-now. Incest is a reasonable prohibition without full genetic knowledge and ability to manipulate the zygote completely, which if our civilization gets, is pretty dangerous for top psychopaths to get access to. As a species, inbreeding too close (1st Cousin and closer over dozens of generations) gets you Muslims and their no-benefit infant mortality and defective live-births, unlike Jewish inbreeding which gets them 10-30 IQ points in return for sicker babies. Look at "Jewish Eugenics" for some bare facts that no one will discuss in the open.

  11. Yeah for sure Foster is no Steinbeck. I bitched to him once about his lack of continuity going from one book to another.
    Basically he gets whatever product free, then surrounds that product with filler of good ole boy drivel enough o satisfy the product supplier.
    At one point the dood tried to get me to design a folding push scooter that had a luggage rack incorporated. This supposedly would be used by yuppies to escape the city and have a handy rack to hold their BOB...LOL times infinity...
    Not only was he wanting me to come up with the design, I'd be responsible for manufacturing said contraption...
