Leftie FUD and Prepping

Postby blackeagle603 » Tue Feb 07, 2017 4:19 am

Some good prepper stuff from online e-bike friend Karl. He'd actually fit in well here -- even as an avowed Bernie supporter. Got a thick skin, could hold his own and prolly school most of us on a thing or two. Fun blog to follow for e-bikes. A bit of a wild man with the hardware and DIY projects and "overdoing" it in just about every application.

I'd take issue with some (many) of his cheap personal gear choices but his e-bike advice is pure platinum.

I read that and I got a kick out of his off grid no-fuel home setup using propane. I wish e-bikes werent treated as motorcycles in my state. On second thought, thats keeping me from another expensive hobby....

It gets cheaper as you start to increasingly park or eliminate a vehicle.

...and then go full geek like me and find yourself increasingly loading up cargo to the point of hauling a trailer to places like Costco and Home Depot instead of driving.

...and then start thinking about ways to make that trailer convertible to a long bed that can haul 4x8 sheet goods and small loads of dimensional lumber.

Only adds 3 minutes or so more to ride vs drive the 3-4 miles for me. Then there's the reduction in crowded parking lot hassles -- zip up to the store and park next to the loading zone.

Still I think this https://motoped.com/survival/ converted to run on ethanol would work better in shtf. Monshine makes easier than electricity.
