Hi there, 28/M from the west coast of canada. Expensive place to live but a hell of a lot cheaper when you make everything yourself. Found this site by searching around for dehydrator stuff and figured I'd hang around for a bit. Enough about me, let me outline some of my recent projects. Waterproofed a coat with beeswax/paraffin Rendered half gallon of lard Picked a few pounds of edible mushrooms Dehydrated said mushrooms Currently dehydrating bananas Fixed my bike. Always fixing this damn thing. I have my own semi self sufficiency website too, Five Gallon Ideas. Can't link because I'm too new. It's about buckets and the things you can do with them.
