In which case coal would make a very useful commodity to run any form of steam vehicle...requires no form of specialised storage, will keep indefinately, and has an amazingly high 'calorific' value

I must be a pack rat. Want a knife? what size? Need a rifle and 100 rds? get me a horse and saddle. Ax? I have and extra, I need 25L of gas. Cast Iron skillet here, I need a deer or a quarter of beef. Drink of water is free but I need that wood split, I will even let you eat lunch on me. I know there was three of you but there is just you know so I will let you only dig two holes, don't make me tell you to dig three. Sure I can make up some arrows for you, get me some cedar heart wood, a goose and some 1/16" sheet steel. Feathers on the goose please. Need a bow string? I need three packs of dental floss, one for the string and two for me. Sure I can sharpen your knife or ax, need some seed potatoes. You don't have anything? Tell you what I need the back acre turned over and the potatoes planted. You pull water out of the well and keep them watered till harvest and you can have half, just don't cross me or I might need a hole dug.

If you live in a city and you come out to the country where I live we all are going to drive hard bargains. Every one I know has a rifle and knows how to use it. A short shot at a deer here is 200 yards. People out here also think that any one that is not ready to take care of themselves shouldn't get much help. As a friend of mine says "they can live or die its all the same to me" I think he may have got that from a movie but the intent is real. I think that I will stay put, I am too old to run anymore. Any one that heads my way and wants to plant potatoes is welcome, just don't show up with an AK in your hand, in a group of men folk without women, or try to tell me I have to do anything. Always will have a shovel ready.
