Oh sure, and they have links for thatching, saddle making, an several other pdf documents. I am so in trouble with this site...lol. Glad I have an empty 8GB thumb drive or at least it was when I started. Several good manuals for prepping here, especially for one who appreciates the historical ways as I do.

LOL.. yeah, I need to get one. I have a platoon of thumb drives.

 

Maybe but don't forget the all the eggs in one basket moral. I have a decent sized external drive but I often fear corruption will cause it's loss. Yeah 2 is 1 but priorities are key and money resources are only spendable once, dammit, no matter how I try otherwise.

this is a great site!! i especially like the saddle making link. it covers the basic tools and techniques for saddle making. however, it only concerns english saddles. if push came to shove, i know the skills could be transferable to western saddles but there are some differences between the two that i would want to know thoroughly before i trusted my life to a homemade saddle. english saddles have their place but western saddles and especially harnesses would ultimately prove more useful. wud u happen to know where a free download for western saddle making or harness making making might be found? (i think this if off topic....oops :D)

The link for part 2 is broken.

 

I can try and PM it to you tomorrow Von. I downloaded it before and have it on a thumb drive. Hopefully it isn't too large for the pm system or I'll try and get it to you another way.

    • This is a great inspiring article. I am pretty much pleased with your good work. You put really very helpful information.

    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
