In the first episode of Volume 2 of I Spy Doom, we discussed ways to Self-Insulate, so you personally can stay pretty warm even in Freezing temperatures just by conserving body heat.  This is the MOST important thing to do if you live in a cold climate!  Your Preps MUST include good cold weather clothing, in layers you can wrap on as the temps drop, or strip off as they rise.  You NEVER want on so many layers you start to sweat.  That makes you uncomfortable, and makes the clothing start to stink also.  Then you need to wash it more often, which beats it up faster.  Your goal in self-insulation is to stay just warm enough you are comfortable.  As night falls, this usually means adding one or two more layers before you crawl into the sleeping bag.

Here in Episode 2, we discuss the most simple, cheap and "primitive" ways to make personal heaters good for very small spaces like a 2-3 man tent or refrigerator box for a Homeless person.  I went "on location" to do this shoot at one of the nearby State Parks with a nice Lake.  Apologies for the first 3 minutes or so of the Vid, the ICE powered motor boaters showed up to launch off the ramp nearby where I parked and so I had to talk over them.  When I started setting up at a little before 9AM it was nice and quiet.  By 10AM when I was set up and ready to shoot the fishers were launching into the lake.  Anyhow, after the first 3 minutes, most of the background noise of Industrial Civilization fades out.  I won't be using this location again though for vids, and not just because it's too loud.  They fucking charged me $5 just for DAY PARKING over 1/2 hour!  No camping, just sitting at a picnic table!  That is fucking RIDICULOUS!  There are tons of quieter, nicer locations around to park for FREE!  Here's the list of Fees for Alaska State Parks:

In the video opening I SAID it was one of my "favorite" locations.  It USED to be, before I had to pay $5 just to fucking park for the day!  I haven't been there for a few years.  It has now dropped way down on the list.

A "Regular" spot here gets you NADA for $25!  No water, no sewer, no electricity.  At my favorite For Pay campsite not on the State Parks system, I get the same type of site for $15.  For $25, I get electricity too!

Besides the daily camping fee of $25, if you are coming here to fish (why else would you come to a lake for camping?) it's going to cost you another $15 to launch your boat every day you are out there on your holiday.  Now you are up to $40/day!  I asked a couple of boaters dragging their ICE powered water rigs out of the lake how they did for the day with fishing.  One of them got nothing, the other got about 4 puny size lake trout I could buy for less than $20 at 3 Bears, and I don't have to clean them either.  This is NOT a good way to feed yourself on the cheap while BAU is ongoing!  When they stop collecting the fees at the parks, then you might do OK.

In the upcoming episodes of I Spy Doom, we'll be expanding on and refining the basic priciples of heating for your OTR living, and doing some scaling up and measurements as well for efficiency.  Tune in to I Spy Doom here on the Doomstead Diner to get more techniques to keep from ending up as a Homeless Cripple Freezing to Death on the Streets of Palmer, Alaska © ,

    I will be SO GLAD when they finally get around to RATIONING FUEL!
    Gone will be those noisy power boats, all terrain vehicles, HUGE recreation vehicle monstrosities, 4X4 trucks, private aircraft, SUV's, dirt blowers. lawn mowers, chain saws, outdoor vacume cleaners, hedge trimmers etc etc.

    We can't "prep" while being dependent upon FOSSIL FUELS like kerosene! Fossil resources are now in everything we eat, wear or use.

    Without oil, far less wildlife, fish, dolphins & whales will be hunted down & killed & the excessive human population will finally be declining.
    Too bad that because of human stupidity & religion, BILLIONS of us will have to die of starvation, disease & WARS!
    It was the hight of STUPIDITY to feed GROWTH with a TEMPORARY resource & oil dependent "renewables" won't change that.

    • RE says:

      Of course you can prep with Kerosene.  If you have 15 gallons of Kerosene, you can survive the Alaska winter.  Without the kero, you will need to cut down and split a lot of wood, which I am no longer fit to do.  Kerosene is a prep against freezing to death.

      RE

      • sheila chambers says:

        And when you run out of kerosene, then what is plan "B"?
        You won't be prepping for a few months, it could be years before we can start over again & the raw materials we once could easly get are all gone.
        How well insulated is your shelter? How warm & durable is you winter gear? Will you have a community?

        Your best protection against freezing to death is well insulated shelter, shoes/boots & clothing. High protien, high fat meals are also important in cold weather.

        • RE says:

          I have the best winter gear an Alaskan can get.  Didn’t you watch Vol 2, Issue 1 of I Spy Doom?  I went over self insulation issues and how to dress for the cold.

          http://www.doomsteaddiner.net/blog/2017/07/19/i-spy-doom-returns/

          My apartment is a well insulated Alaskan one.  My heat bill is generally only $35/mo for the natural gas in the winter.

          I can make my heating devices using wood as well as kerosene, although for me collecting enough wood for a winter is about impossible nowadays.

          My Plan B for when I run out of fuel to heat with is to freeze to death.
