The path To Self Sufficiency. The Inspirations.


My Goal is to be Off Grid and Growing my own food and yet live “normally”. Old and New technology can be used to FREE yourself from a subject culture. You don’t need to have bib overalls and 10 acres of land. You can live in the city and grow your own food. These are some of my Inspirations for what you see on my Channel; www.diesel-bike.com www.youtube.com www.youtube.com

    ”Us” being self sufficient is not in ”there” best interest,its all about money,same as it always has been.

  4. If any preppers are considering a floor remodel in their home or have a raised foundation, they really need to look into in floor radiant heat with solar / boiler as the heating source. I have installed many of these systems in the high elevations of Colorado rockies. These systems heat the home as well as provides snow melt for the drive while never engaging the boiler back up. The average system can be done for around 10k..not including the in floor radient. Good heating solution.

  5. Just wondering why would any goverment NOT want anyone to be self-sufficient? They complain we use too much resources and such…
    It’s kinda pardox dont ya think?

    You don’t have to toss those pumpkins, feeding them to the chickens… Simply means that you are converting them into eggs, chicken, and fertilizer for the garden. Great job!

  9. i live in 1 of nyc’s 5 boroughs on a 70×30 lot -have 11 hens an grow veggies and fruit – currently looking to get a fireplace insert for wood heat as well – havent felt confident with canning just yet – but will be dehydrating food for storage this year – i give away lots of food -already trying to find time between work to start seeds indoors – much to the dismay of dh & kids – i am trying to figure how to disguise a mini dairy goat as one of the dogs. great videos/info but scary stuff

    Agree. Communities also provide safety as well.

    Thanks for the comments. I appreciate your wisdom here and it is very welcomed.

    There are things that are easier to do in cities that are harder to do in the country. Cottage industries are really taking off in many subdivisions; cobblers, tinkers, sewing…all of these small industries and many more can be done easily out of a spare room or garage. In the cities there are more people to use these services. Trading and bartering works better with more people and more different skills. There has been times when I see living is a community to be better than living out here.

    also, thank you for the links to the other videos & websites. 🙂 i’ve known about the family that grows all that food for quite a while, but it’s always nice to hear about them. good luck with everything!!! you always have great videos with tons of information!

    my grandfather used to raise beef. he didn’t have a lot of cows, just a few at a time. very good eats! they were killed humanely, which was a big plus. we always got about a quarter of the cow (meat was split between 4 people) & since i make a lot of asian stuff, i requested the parts others didn’t want or that would be thrown out- like the tail, tongue, etc.. you can definitely tell the difference in the quality of beef, too. store bought is terrible compared to home grown beef!!

    good video…thanks for time and effort you put into them.

    p.s…. bib overalls are super comfortable.

  15. Yankeeprepper | April 22, 2010 at 9:10 am |

    Thanks very much. I will take that as a great compliment. I love my family and want to serve them well. I don’t always hit the mark, but I will always try to do my best for them. I am the person you see here, I would make a terrible actor and I am the worse poker face, I can only be me, the good and the bad is what you see.

    Great vid as always. We r picking up out quarter of beef (grassfed) in two weeks. I’m very happy. Talking to some farmers on chickens this spring for that source of protien. Gonna try planting in my limited space this year also. May get into canning this fall with several friends. U r my hero in this field. I don’t know u personally but I have seen all ur vids and had some emails from u. I think if ur the person u portray on utube ur family is very lucky. Hope things keep going well for u.

  17. You guys fight the good fight. Im going to end up being vaporized by the false flag nuke.

  18. ?????

    That’s right, the state & fed by proxy will get no revenue should you be able to live comfortably off grid. Either partially let alone absolutely.

    Thanks for the info yank.

  19. Anyone know if an what to feed apple trees?

  20. I’m in the same camp. Just can’t get things to register with my wife. I think it’s a combination of “I don’t want to think about it” and “Everything will be fine” type attitude. It’s like she’s got a set future in her head and doesn’t want to accept that it could be different from what she’s always imagined. It makes it a lot harder for guys like you and me. We’re on our own. What’s even worse, is her entire family is just as clueless. So when SHTF I’ve got the in-laws to worry about too.

  21. Check out Yankee’s first vid and some of the others in there where he passes on knowledge of coffee. I caught the bug and I’m going to liberate from oppression of lesser coffee and bring a few with me.

    You will find similar experiences with many things from bleach to electricity : ) I highly recommend watching all of the vids asap so you don’t kick yourself for not catching something really good earlier.

  22. Good Video Prepper , my wife and I are doing the same things that your family is doing and we only have an acre of land. It can be done.

  23. Yankeeprepper | April 22, 2010 at 12:37 pm |
