This is the ultimate guide to building a log cabin. There may be other article out there that claim to teach you how to build a log cabin. I have never seen anything as comprehensive as this guide. This article goes as deep as land considerations.
We all have a strange desire to go off grid and build a cabin. You have to be careful about what types of media you consume on the topic. You can t.v shows and books that make things look a lot easier than they are. If there is anything I have learned about homesteading since getting involved its that you will always spend more money and take more time than you thought. After you read this article about building a log cabin from scratch you will understand the type of commitment it takes.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
