Hola senoritas!
After being away on exercises your favourite ATS member is back! Oh, you flatter me. I am hoping to get done a series of thread on survival and have planned already maybe 40 subjects in addition to my other threads in progress :S so hope you enjoy!
This is my first actual thread so bear with. Welcome to Project Ragnarok!!

So what are you doing for the apocalypse? Hole out in your house? Go looting? Leech off other people’s hard work? Make love to yourself in the bomb shelter? Boooring. Let me make you jealous and show you what Im doing.



Here is the entrance to my magic fortress. The name is misleading because it is neither magic nor fortress. Oh well.



Here is our water shed. The drainage around the roof collects water down the pipes and into these barrels. They are filtered with a screen on top! You will see these in use later.



You see inside the shed. It kicks ass! To your left there is a couch, topographical map of area, water cooler, and fridge.



Across, upon the right side, is the freezer, cupboards, storage, TV & DVD player, ice maker, coffee machine, microwave, and toaster oven! Not bad



Directly right of this shed is the large trailer and outdoor shower. You can make out a blue rain barrel beside it. There is a pump to make it work!!



Left of this is the woodpile, firepit, log benches, and dog house!



Innnn the far corner we have the living room. There is a couch, many chairs, table, large TV with extension cord, Xbox, and a lot of good times.



This tree shows off our fishing rods and net. What a nice tree. Fishing is a good way to survive when you don’t like to kill cute things.



Here is what we call the Hall. It is a tarp section covering a large couch and table. You can see the saw and tools for woodworking, and a rifle for you know going shopping.



This angle is behind it and you can make out the best building of most skill: what I call the Gazebo!



This lovely Gazebo is on a raised platform for the person who hates being covered in bugs. Unless it is a practical joke. It is, I dunno octagonal or septagonal or something I’m not an architect.



Here is inside! There is 2 futons, 2 chests, a couch, a chair, and a lot of room! Oh no, however will we create more body heat together?



This is the small trailer along the ATV path. It has a dining table that convert into a bed, quite comfy actually I slept there. A double bed up top you would not believe by how small It look on the outside, but its there! Fridge, oven, etc too and various lamps and lights.



Here is where your jaw drops. The full feature kitchen. It is built on foundation of 2 trees! One whole side is covered and the roof is very nice. There is a tarp for full water proof though. It has a barbecue, stove, double sink, lots of utensils!



Yes these are windows. It is beautiful *sniff*

I am sorry I can not show you side 2 of the kitchen but there are people in the shot. But it kicks ass! Second stove, utensil, clock, paper towel, all the spices and ingredients, and cords to recharge your phone even!!



Here is the dining area. It is a long picnic table covered by a tarp. Maybe I should mention here everything is pretty much handmade, few things brought up.

Dont worry I am not a sissy that is my beer container but it is full of vodka… well not so much full as empty of vodka.



Here is the chain storage shed. It houses everything, wheelbarrow, boats, rake, tools, extra barrels, etc.



Here is the rear part with the ATV trail. Fun on a bun. To the left is shed and back is the outhouse.



This shed is handmade and awesome, outside part holds ladders, lockers, stuffs, you know propane and things.



The inside part holds the TRACTOR!!! You cant move full rain barrels by yourself! Also are batteries, fuel, motors, ATVs, tools, manly things.



Here is the beautiful outhouse! Left women right men, because men are always right har har. Inside is full of comic strips so you got something ta do. Handmade as well! Isnt she pretty? Also to the right, a rainwater barrel & basin for to wash hands, there is soap! Talk about roughing it.



Here is view from coming back from outhouse. This site was brought to you by: labour! Not mine though!

Now here is some stuff at my house. I am thinking of bringing up to the site.



Spicy peppers! Chile & jalapeno & banana! This is right after the harvest too.



Mmm mmm all from one small pot too!



Mm spicy parsley, useful to decorate your plate and not eat, lol.



Cherry tomatoes, ew. Not for me.



Regular tomatoes double ew. These are not my choices to plant. But…



The haul is great!!



Here is rhubarb after the harvest. Seriously theres a ton. In my fridge. I give to my family to make pies.



Here is a chives. They are kind of like green onions. There is also a chive monster. The only way to defeat her is lull her into a false sense of security. If you ask her to kiss she will kiss you. I can already hear the awwwws.



Here is a grapevine around my house. Again I give to my family to make jelly. They have seeds so are not great alone.



Here is grapes in their natural habitat at night. I think they are called concord as you can see they are nocturnal.



Here is my strawberries don’t you like? They taste a million times better than the store.



This one was the biggest I ever got. It taste fantastic too. The green ones look promising. This is my hand. The most you will see of me. As you can see I am not arab so quit messaging!


Here is an herb garden as well as some other # ummm… nothing much to say.



This is my beautiful thing I dunno why I am including other than to make you jealous because I have self esteem issue and need to be told I am pretty

Just kidding!

Sooo ummmm… I dunno what to say other than I don’t need 20 comments saying ‘oh cool’ very nice etc so please find something creative/interesting/funny to say.

Adjø!

Very....interesting.

How long did it take to do all that stuff? To organise all the things you've done?

So you rented some space at a campground and now you are bragging to us about it? Jealousy is not the word I'd choose. Maybe a cityslicker new to the whole camping thing. As for "ragnarok" being a safe haven...

Hope your water screen filters fallout.

Years! Most of it is my friends. Like I said I did not do a lot. Just something I am a part of. It is a team effort! Lots of people helped.

1. Its not rent its own
2. I see you have no sense of humour much luck with that!
3. I hope my filters work fine, just to see the look on your face

That is an awesome setup you got going there! Just wondering what your approximate climate is. If the temps range from -10 to 90 degrees F (like where I live) or if they are more moderate (50-80)

Also, do you live there on a full-time basis?

I have a plot of land too that I'm thinking of managing quite similarly.

Personal question though, with that land, you must pay property taxes....so what are you going to do when there is no money to pay the taxes? Just a question. You don't have to answer.

Very nice though!

Haha I can see where a grenade turtle will come in handy

Very far North! The coldest I have been there was -15ºC but it gets far colder, have not been there in the worst part of winter because the roads are too icy. But my sister lives south of the site, north of myself, and where she lives it is often -10 to 10ºC but can go into the 30s even. Celcius I dont know F. The site being far north even of her is a looot colder even in summer.
Where I personally live it always varies usually 0 Celcius in the winter sometimes -10 I am very comfortable in though. As high as 30s as well. Usually 15 I guess average.

I definitely do not live there full time the pictures of my second post show my backyard. Would love to live there months at a time though!

Lol, I know where you're going with it, I will just not pay taxes, that is what the rifle is for

Pretty nice setup and love the feel of it. I reckon you could make some kick ass natural sculptures for the front entrance, or back atv part in the middle, something easily done with the skill available I can see!

How far do you have to chase that stuff in a thunderstorm?
What about snow do you ever have any? If so how do you get into your tool shed? Just curious.

Heya Rid, my hats off to you. While we disagree on opinion, I have to say we agree on something far more important.

That's a badass house, and I'd live in it -- now. Probably over the Taj Mahal. Screw the apocalypse. A translucent living room, with full optional au naturel kitchen, YES PLEASE.

1. it's above ground and therefore not safe.

2. It's really grubby and could use a good clean up

3. Ill bet your kids hate you for being paranoid and making them live in the woods like they are in the 19th century.

4. lol

5. if armageddon does happen, I can't think of a single reason why I would want to live through it.

Thanks for the pictures. It gave me great ideas for our back garage. My in-laws, 2 adults and 2 children (ages 10 and 3) have lost their house due to forecloser. They have been living with me and Hubby for over a month ....... But that is a whole nother survival issue.

I love all of the people on this thread who are making fun of your fortress of solitude without likely having much of anything to prepare for an emergency.

I think your place looks cool! If you live in Canada on the West Coast let me know so I can come and live with you when the asteroid hits. I can even bring some Xbox games, as I know how essential they are to basic survival.

Whereas a lot of what I see seems okay I do not see much in the way of security.

A chain-link shed won't hold anyone back with either a lock-pick or a bayonet/wire-cutter combo.

Where do you store your 6-12 months supply of food?

Is all your water sourced exclusively from water butts?

If this location was really secure I'm worried to see a well-used road.

Yes, it looks nice and if I could control the weather and bugs I'd be there in an instant, however you requested constructive criticism.

at least you're doing something, unlike a chunk of people in this thread so far. i'd like to see what's his names' underground lair.

i could tell you all kinds of ways i'd do it different than you have, but bottom line you're 'application' is light years ahead of my 'theory' . . .

be proud, you done fine

I like the camp.

I wish I had that kind of land, I'd build one like it.

All you need now is some high walls, lined with autonomous machine guns, and rising missile platform for when Odin comes.

That and a book of infinite knowledge to bribe him.

Really interesting to see, thanks for posting!


If the apocalypse does happen in beautiful Canada and I certainly hope it doesn't, you will be living in the equivalent of a mansion! I really like the fact your using natural rain water, do you need to purify it at all and is it safe to drink also? Out of curiosity, are you creating energy from renewable sources too?

You've obviously put a great deal of effort into producing those fine fruit and vegetables and you can see the quality nutrition they hold within them, not a single drop of MSG or flavour enhancer required! Much kudos, I hope you will create a survivalist educational post on home grown food!
