Bugout Location Planning & Preps / Re: Off grid cabin

The problem with a lot of these types of properties is that they may in the future have to be brought up to code. This indicates that while the property is currently in non-conforming compliance if any substantial alterations are made to it the locals will require conforming to hygiene codes.

Quote
There is an outhouse on the property, no well or septic and they do have certificates of Non-Compliance filed by the building department.

This one is in a flood zone and when (not if ) Silver creek washes it away if you want to rebuild it will likely have to be brought up to code.

Bugout Location Planning & Preps / Off grid cabin
« Last post by flybynight on Yesterday at 03:34:16 PM »
Down the rabbit hole I went.
   So I was reading a news article today about a bow hunter finding the remains of a bow hunter missing since 1968. I pulled up a google map of the area to get a better idea of what the terrain looks like. I then noticed the nearest  town was Salmon . I thought I remembered that Elmer Keith lived there.  Looked it up and yes ,his ranch was nearby and he and his wife had moved into town when they grew older.
   I then wondered what real estate looked like there . Looked on zillow and found this really off grid cabin

Pretty cool. If only I was younger

Bar magnet with a solid mount under the front bumper?

https://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_200256174_200256174?cm_mmc=Google-pla&utm_source=Google_PLA&utm_medium=Construction%20%3E%20Road%20Magnets&utm_campaign=A.M.K.%20Magnetics&utm_content=1501692&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI8durro-T8wIVyxmtBh2BmgDsEAQYAyABEgInhPD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds

I have a couple of issues with this.

1) It does not appear wide enough to protect the tyres (a leaker on the right if I'm not mistaken).
2) Going over any sort of bump will have that thing bouncing up and down doing whatever damage.

Presumably only for use at very low speeds?

those are for cleaning up areas not for highway use. and i even think they are sized for side by sides or golf cars. but it'd be neat to have some sort of magnetic field to 'vacuum' up that stuff on a highway vehicle.
It wouldn't have worked for the one time I some how got a wheel balance weight [lead] thru my Explorer's tire, I didn't even know what it was until I started pulling it out. All I could see was a little silver on the surface but there was a heavy and long weight in there.

2 must haves after a hurricane a powerful magnet on a stick and tire patch kit/inflator.

The tire plug kit and inflator are part of my EDC VERK, but the magnet?

Since you put the magnet and the tire kit in the same breath you made me think of the professional office cleaners, they put magnets on the fronts of their vacuums with beater bars to pick up staples and paperclips before rolling over them. That's an idea to protect car tires but what do you use it for?

I use it to sweep my yard and driveway after a storm to pick up roofing nails and screws. When neighbors are having roofs redone the workers will always drop nails. It is inevitable. Using this to sweep the yard has in the past saved my foot from a nail and a tire repair.

The bigger and more powerful the better.

I also have seen the magnets on vacuums and while I would love to figure out how to mount one in each wheel well I have not figured that out yet.

Current Events of Note / GOM Oil & Gas Disruptions Due to Hurricane Ida
« Last post by Raptor on Yesterday at 12:28:49 PM »
This article discusses the pipeline/transmission disruptions to GOM oil/NG production which accounts for 16% of the US Oil output. A key offshore transmission site was damaged and is off line until repairs are completed. 
https://www.insurancejournal.com/news/national/2021/09/21/633009.htm


Quote
Shell was the hardest-hit producer from Ida, which tore through the U.S. Gulf of Mexico last month and removed 28 million barrels from the market. The ongoing disruptions have hampered exports and raised crude prices, as Asian buyers searched for substitutes for the popular Gulf Mars grade.

Three weeks after the storm, about 40% of Shell’s production from the offshore region is still offline. Shell is the largest U.S. Gulf producer with eight facilities pumping about 476,000 bpd, according to researcher Rystad Energy. Overall, the U.S. Gulf produces 1.8 million bpd, or about 16% of U.S. oil output.

Quote
The fields are a key source of Mars sour crude, a grade prized by oil refiners in the United States and Asia. Rystad analyst Artem Abramov estimated the lost production will remove 200,000 to 250,000 barrels per day (bpd) of Gulf of Mexico oil supply for several months.

“Disruptions are now having an impact on total available crude for export from the U.S., not just the offshore grades,” said Krista Kuhl, an analyst with consultancy firm Facts Global Energy.

Mars prices had soared to a one-year high this month then eased as other oil supply constraints lifted.


What does this mean? Higher fuel prices and higher transport costs.
