The Backwoods Engineer is rebooting, hopefully back to normal operation!
Sorry, friends, for being gone for so long. The logistics of getting ready for my new job meant something had to give, and the blog got the short stick.
The short version of new job story: I'm going to have to be traveling some, but I will escape the cubicle farm at least 50% of the time, and be able to work in my home lab overlooking my garden. Eventually, we will have to relocate, but I suspect there will be an economic collapse before that happens, and different plans will have to be made. For now, I have more freedom, and more money in the bank to prepare with, and don't have to deal with the bull at my previous job, and that suits me fine.
I have a really interesting post on preparedness, about making hot water when there is an interruption in natural gas supply, coming up. I've got some more pictures to take for it, but I hope to get it up before the weekend is out. I hope I can get some of the survivalist sites to pick up the post.
For now, I'll leave you with this awesome cartoon sent by my friend Matt Bracken.
