New Preparedness Projects

Today is a different type of blog instead of giving information I am asking for it.  A friend and I are working on several long-range projects and are looking for people who have information that may be helpful.

Wood burning car

The four we are currently researching are.

One, wood gasification or running gasoline motors on wood.

Two, we would like to build a press to form charcoal or fuel briquettes.

Three, there are many olives available in our area; we would like to build an olive press.

Four, running an alternator by wind power.

In you have information that you feel would help us we would appreciate you sharing.  As we proceed with these projects, we post the results so you can build your own.

    I would be very interested in reading/seeing your progress on the wood gasifier on your blog. This is something I am very interested in, mostly more to run a generator, etc…ala Colony Season 1.

    Here is an excellent book from FEMA regarding the subject. The book can be ordered free from FEMA or downloaded at this site

    What type of info do you need for the olive press? I live here in S.Italy and we make our own olive oil, well, let me explain, the farmers collect the olives and then bring them to the ‘Frantoio’ to have their ‘batch’ ground and pressed for the final oil product. Which then they bring home for personal consumption or if they have plenty will sell. This is done around this season (Nov. Dec.) when olives are ripe. Let me know by email if I can get you any info because I can go to the Frantoio easily.

    How do I get in touch with you to swap ideas on wind generators and battery storage?
