    Bought 2 sets of berky filters. Used two food grade buckets, a dollar lemonade jug faucet, use 5 gal for upper and 6 gallon for lower put berky filters on top one, holes thru bottom of bucket , fill top 5 gal ,and it goes thru holes in bottom bucket lid, and stores in bottom bucket till use. Cost 60 for the berky filters and 6 bucks ea for clean white pails and dollar for faucet tot: cost 72 dollars and a drill for the holes. Works fine, Pre filter dirty water but spring or clear creek water is a snap. I used an orange bucket for the top and white for the bottom. Try to idiot proof IE: pour the water in the top orange one and wait.

    Been awhile since I've posted but have been busy forgive me if I repeat some old stuff. Picked up a nice Heritage .22 SA revolver with a LR cylinder and a Mag.cylinder. My 100 mile race went well and then started training for bicycle season with my new trainer before the Kung Flu hit. For awhile we had 4 unemployed folks in my house, but my preps were pretty solid. Then work came my way and the past few weeks I've been working overtime everyday. The wife was able to reopen her shop yesterday so we're crawling out of a small hole, but we're better off than a lot of folks. I'm blessed. Of course the wife sees the value of prepping now, so that is the most important thing now. Because this isn't going away.

    Sweet...when my dad passed I inherited his Ruger .22 with the same setup. Magnum cylinder was really impressive!

    Not a lot of changes - - I've been off-grid almost 100% and I just work each day and live my life. Not much has changed other than I have been enjoying immensely the huge decreases in traffic. This COVID-19 has been a huge disruption to some, and I've been almost completely unaffected.

    New shop/garage being built. We do all our own maintenance here on the property so the shop will pay for itself over time. 100_0003 (24).JPG 100_0006 (23).JPG
