Compendium

Dear Ones,

Here is a Compendium of my blogs on sustainable living and survival. These might be useful in case of hard times that may happen in some timelines.

I have only included those links in the “Sustainable Living – Survival” category of my blog that are directly pertinent to the topic.

Titles of blogs I like best in this category are bolded. I suggest printing these bolded blogs out, and also printing out their links, to keep on hand in a ‘Survival’ file folder  …

Dear Ones,

INTRODUCTION

This blog is about ways to soothe social unrest and improve our urban environments through land distribution. The information in green font below is not mentioned in the video …

  • After Columbus discovered America, the problem of unrest among younger sons of nobility was solved in England by offering them land grants to plantations on the East Coast of America. This was also a way of redistributing wealth and creating new wealth.
  • How this may apply to unrest among those of no means in America’s large cities, with regard to possible redistribution of Government Lands, for instance, lands owned by the Bureau of Land Management. It is possible the railroads are holding more lands as a result of original land grants to them to entice them to build railroads across the United States, and that these lands might, through whatever modus, offer an avenue of wealth redistribution in the United States.
  • Stepping up the United States land redistribution process might solve a number of problems:
    • It might mitigate discomfort among the very wealthy here in America, regarding the potential for social unrest among the urban poor.
    • It might offer a program that would foster the principles of hard work to provide for oneself a bright future, which has proven very effective in strengthening the moral fabric of America in times past.
    • The ideals of sustainable living might be fostered in the newly distributed lands.
    • A decrease in crowdedness of our large cities might give a financial boost to overworked community services, by removing the lower per capita income households from the cities and decreasing crowdedness.
    • And the resultant improvement in per capita urban income might improve public services coffers … for example, those of law enforcement, fire department, water, power, street cleaning and trash collection. Funds from relief of demand for public services might be channeled into urban renewal, with reinstitution of city street paving and sidewalk repair (of which there has for some years been a negligible amount ongoing in Los Angeles, for instance), better public transportation, less commute congestion, more urban green spaces, and urban wildlife transportation corridors.

Work Camping and Annual Camping Opportunities in America . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

WORK CAMPING

I just read an article in “AARP the Magazine,” Dec/Jan 2015, called “Mixing Work and Pleasure on the Long, Winding Road.” This is about ‘work camping’, which I thought might be of interest to some of us as we go through the Ascension process. Reason being, a competitive career lifestyle is not always compatible for all of us as the process unfolds. Work camping offers a chance to ratchet down on housing cost … by living in a trailer … and at the same time work for minimum wage at a low key job, and garner enough money to pay for food and gas. With some employers, part time work is available.

I could not find the AARP article online; It looks like you have to become a member to get it. However, in the article they mention Amazon.com has a CamperForce program, providing free campsites and about $10 an hour, plus overtime, for seasonal work in its warehouses all across the US …

Link: “Amazon Camperforce” … http://www.amazondelivers.jobs/about/camperforce/ ..

Some campers do seasonal work for KOA; you have to be willing to clean bathrooms and empty trash.

Link: “Live the Life You Love: Become a KOA Work Kamper” … https://workatkoa.com/ ..

When I was camping at Mesa Verde last summer, I found out that Aramark offers seasonal jobs at National Parks and elsewhere. This sometimes includes a campsite, minimum wage, and part time or full time work in a laundry or gift shop or snack shop, etc …

NATIONAL PARKS AND FEDERAL RECREATION LANDS CAMPING

For those that do not need to work, passes are available to National Parks and Federal Recreation Lands …

Link: “America the Beautiful Passes,” by National Park Service … https://www.nps.gov/planyourvisit/passes.htm ..

However, and this is pretty important, passes do not include camping costs, which can be hefty at National Parks.

Typical camping costs for National Forests, which tend to offer less developed campsites, vary from free to $12 a night …

COLORADO, NEW MEXICO, AND NEVADA STATE PARKS CAMPING

State Parks sometimes offer great opportunities for campers. I noticed on both the Colorado and the New Mexico banks of beautiful Navajo Lake State Park, sites with amenities and an incredible view are offered.

On the New Mexico side, annual camping permits are $180 a year for New Mexico residents, $100 a year for New Mexico resident seniors and disabled, $225 a year for out of state residents. More information here …

LInk: “Navajo Lake State Parks” by New Mexico State Parks …  http://www.emnrd.state.nm.us/SPD/navajolakestatepark.html ..

On the Colorado side of the lake, camping is apparently just $70 a year for one vehicle. For more on the amenities there, see …

Link: “Navajo State Park,” by Colorado State Parks and Wildlife … https://cpw.state.co.us/placestogo/parks/Navajo ..

Looks like that fee will get you the right to camp in other Colorado State Parks as well …

Link: “Annual Pass Information,” by Colorado Parks and Wildlife … https://cpw.state.co.us/buyapply/Pages/AnnualPassInfo.aspx ..

I gather from this chart that Nevada State Parks offer seasonal low entrance fees with free camping. Annual permits for camping in all Nevada State Parks are $200 a year ..

LInk: “Annual Permits,” by Nevada State Parks … http://parks.nv.gov/fees/annual-permits ..

And maybe other state parks have good camping opportunities too.
