There was a long blackout this week we lost power and had to make due on a small generator and our witts. The cause of the outage is pretty clear and probably not what you expected. These things happen every so often on our homestead in the Mountains of Northern Idaho. We also lost another chicken to the unforgiving forces of nature and I think we actually found a solution to this recurring problem. Join us as we make due and live the good good no matter what circumstances throw at us.

    I'm amazed y'all don't have a fireplace and/or wood stove out there. I've seen old generators/boxes on various milsurp sites, if it might be worth looking at for a more secure/durable housing and you could get it cheap? Stay warm and stay well, guys! S/F

      We don't actually own this place so I refuse to put one in because it would raise the value and make it cost more if I decided to buy. Whomever built this house needs to be drawn and quartered.

    Gunny, I like your box and "crate o generator stuff" . I might suggest fine aluminum or stainless screen over all your intake holes and to fill the gap between the exhaust pipe and the exit port. That should keep bugs out. I don't know how big an issue that is in ID but in SC it is an issue.

      Good plan. Not a huge problem here but probably worth doing anyway. Spring is the worst time. Thats when the hornets and yellow jackets start their assault an all hidden but accessible spaces.

    Living out in the boonies, surprised you haven't invested in a Honda generator.

      Havn't really needed it yet, this one gets the job done and we don't lose power very often. Maybe one day I'll get a Generac that auto automatically kicks on when the power goes out.

    I like the generator box idea. I think I'll build one for our house and get it out of the garage. I may even break out my old gopro and try to make a video of the build.

      Thats would be cool. I am getting back to the knife build today and I need to jump out there and do the upgrades to the box today also, so stand by for the highlights of that on the next video.

    Mmmm, what times breakfast? Nice idea for the generator.
    I have a predator generator also, never had a problem with it, starts up with 3-4 pulls even after it has set for months.
    I think you violated that owl. lol

    I know the videos are monetized, but three commercials before 5:45 is too much to watch. I appreciate your content and hope you get the electricity back on soon. Stay safe.

      I just fixed that I think. Sometimes its hard for me to tell where they are gonna drop those things amd even when I turn them off YT does what they want. Thanks for the feedback, it really does help me out. And I appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment.

    For some reason, this reminds me of a time that you and I were standing next to a fire in Tehachapi shootin the shit about wanting to live off the grid. Hope you and the family stay warm and safe.
