That is a sad story that many will likely follow soon enough. He seems fairly optimistic still but there are not to many rungs left on the ladder that he decided to climb until he is a the bottom. It i ironic that even when the possessions he has is all he carries on his back, one of them is still a laptop.

Does anyone have any experience running cooking oil for fuel in diesel motors? Given the large numbers of restaurants in any larger city used veggie oil should be quite easy to get and stockpile prior to an emergency. It seems to be working for the guy in this link.

Hello

I have a 1983 Toyota SR-5 4X4 pick-up (carbureted) and two 1989 Japanese Toyota diesel Landcruiser's with mechanical fuel injection and 4 wheel posi-traction capability. They should run as long as I can get fuel for them LOL.

What I wouldn't give for a Toyota 4x4 from the 80s. May they rust in piece. Hey! Any Toyota feed catcher....Rebuild this vehicle, damit...It was a best of the best vehicle like the Bug or the Willies. Just shit metal.

Sorry but i only read through the last 2 pages from July but I would strongly reccomend the truck camper situation. With a 4x4 truck import or domestic, you can make your way to a location, your location or another. You can get sidetracked or you get put off course for 1 reason or another, and you still have you house on your back. BUT this is where it gets good. You aint going to find a CHEAP motorhome with 4x4. No way no how. Second you do NOT have the ability to leave your shell behind for whatever reason. third you could actually bury that bugger deep in the bush and still have wheels. Fourth you could use that camper as bait and ambush your adversaries when they come to steal and loot it and you get them AND you still have wheels. 5; you could trade it and STILL have transportation. There are still a few more which I hesitate to mention for my own personal security but you get the idea. Its flexable, versitle and will get you WAY more places than a class C will ever get you.
