    I've been watching a you tube series called J.A. Townsends and son, they are all about how people prepared and stored food in the 1700's, everything they make looks like good eats minus gas and electricity, I especially liked the earthen oven episode, he used bricks and a wooden frame but I am sure out in the woods some flat stones would work just as well for a base to build it on, otherwise it's all about getting muddy for a little bit forming it but then having a way of cooking things. An overhang or roof of some sort is needed to keep the rain from washing it away long term.

    Edit: I forgot to add I think knowing these types of techniques will help people when SHTF.

    Self-reliance is good but I'm thinking a better guide for the future might be Zombies.

    PS Primitive Technology on you tube is so basic it makes Townsend look like Sacs 5th ave.

    If you don't practice...you'll sound like it. And, if you don't tune, your life will sound like it, too. Listen to the intervals. That's where it all hides from you.....

    I rather have a property with a well far from the streams. Streams can be dammed, poisoned, diverted or used up. Streams also bring people.

    Do you mean a hand dug well? Piped wells won't work without electricity. We have a windmill but I'm sure that would bring people too.
