  1. My fathers choice of books for when TSHTF has long been the Foxfire series of books. I surprised you haven’t mentioned them or done a show on them before.

  2. LOL!! Love the part about the tin foil hat

  3. Love the Foxfire series. First hand accounts from very self sufficient folks. Their way of life. Very entertaining reading. Inspirational. Nice information about the “still” as well. Would also highly recommend.

  4. Jack – check out “The Self Sufficient Life and How to Live It” by John Seymour. It a fantastic homesteading guide that provides good summaries of a variety of topics. Wonderful illustrations and I really think you will appreicate the late author’s sense of humor.

  5. the Foxfire series is part of the library. And I compost 12 months a year out here in CO.
    I have been gone for a while but will be coming back as time allows

  6. Hi Jack,

    Thank you for taking the time to answer my question on the show. I suspected you’d give the answer you gave but you added some elements to the answer that I had not considered.

    Thank you!

  7. I like when Jack talks politics. He has unique way of clarifying things, like the flat tax.

  8. Thank you for taking Jason’s question!

    It helped to clarify some points…and it made his day! (from the wife)

  9. Thanks for answering my question. Although I would ask to clarify one thing: The specific point about the compost bins was their passageways for the air to circulate—do you think they might reduce temperature too much during the cold (say -10 or -15) temps up here in upstate NY?
