Hard choice there Andy. North Dakota while I personally would find fun in surviving in, doesn't look like the best real estate going into the GSM and with ND/Minnesota having seen 8 blizzards between then. Plus the higher North, the more increased cosmic radiation as time goes on. Sounds like even more work especially with NK being one of the coldest winters in the Country.

On the other hand, Nebraska is getting a mega shit ton of rain and more hail too, but it's pobably where I'd choose out of the two as they're not seeing the same higher than average UV which has been providing nice florida like days, when there is sun of course. They're getting lots more rain than I am, and simply without a working gutter system for last 2 years it's gonna costs me many thousands to fix all the new damage. Since you are smart/resourceful I don't see this being a worry as you'll come up with something.

I've just been maintaining the garden myself - the insect killer pretty much mottled all of the tomatoes but a few are slightly untouched. Most have blooms and some small fruit budding but for the most part these Munchers are handling the excess rain like a champ. So all in all I'm a little more optimistic if carrots/lettuce/cucumbers are doing okay and the tomatoes too outside of my own issues.

Started a prototype air scrubber and just got done making my first big batch of activated charcoal. Gotta let it sit for 72 hours yet, but update when it's ready :mrgreen:

We experienced a weather event earlier in the week (rain, a drop in temp and humidity) which triggered a massive wild mushroom flush. Today I went and harvested a load of chanterelles, porcini, and pine boletes and the dehydrator is full.

I do this whenever the weather triggers a flush, and I store the dried mushrooms in sealed containers that I then use to trade for other things like honey, and wild game.

It's a great network builder :-)
