RE: Weight Loss Program Search

I think it was Backpacker Magazine that had an article on exercises that burn more calories than canoeing...

That would be something like cross-country ski racing, or uphill ski racing.

Try canoeing.

I started on the Mississippi River at St. Paul, Minnesota, weighing 196 pounds, with a 36" waist...

After 800 miles I still weighed 196 pounds; but my waist was 32;" and the extra 4" was on my chest, arms, back, and shoulders.

Pouring antibiotic powder into your wound works much better than applying antibiotics in petroleum jelly!

Antibiotics in petroleum jelly (Bacitracine) attracts all kinds of dirt into a wound, even with bandages on it...

Antibiotic powder dries into a poultice and a scab; meaning, besides the medicinal value, it works to physically draw infection from your wound, and you don't need a bandage on your wound.

RE: Does our reliance on antibiotics and hygiene, weaken the human gene pool?

Whenever I get prescribed antibiotics for a wound, I open them or crush them into powder, and pour the powder into the wound to use it topically...

The powder makes a scab and a poultice. It keeps flies from getting to the wound; and instead of needing to eat a whole prescription, you can see when you've had enough...

Using antibiotics topically has cut the amount of antibiotics I use down to a small fraction of what I've been prescribed; and I never quit using them too soon...

When people eat their antibiotics, they aren't supposed to stop until the whole prescription is gone.

By pouring the powder into an open wound, you can plainly see when you've had enough; and that never takes a whole prescription...

RE: Off grid living, tips, tricks and cheats to make life easier. :)

I moved out to the boonies... You got that part.

I haven't cut one endemic tree from my land. I cut down the invasive species, and go on nature hikes looking for hapu'u ferns, wild orchids, bamboo, etc. that I plant on my land. Over half of my land is natural forest. I got an endangered hibiscus tree given to me last arbor day. I'm dividing it with air layering, and I plan on putting the clones along the front border, by the road: so everyone can take cuttings off of it, and hopefully help keep it from going extinct. I'm looking for other endangered species that will grow where I live; so I can do the same thing with them.

For water, I have catchment tanks; and my water bill for the last 6 years was $400, the cost of the catchment tanks.

I don't drive a car, and never had a license to drive one in my life. I ride a bicycle; and every dime I put in my tank turns into muscle. I pack my trash 5 miles to the dump with a bike trailer.
I do have an old parts bike under the house.

I plant enough pot to get me through the year. I never sell it; because I grow mine organically with expensive fertilizer and soil... but, if I run out and have to buy it, I'd have to buy herb that was grown for profit, using the cheapest soil and fertilizer available.

After living over 4 1/2 years without using any money at all (like Jesus commanded us...) I can do just about anything, with nothing.
Money isn't very important to me.

Living a simple life in tune with nature, is worth more than money to me.

Malama aina! Aloha aina!

I hooked a lighter jack up to my batteries, by splicing it onto an extension cord.

With the proper cord, you can run a laptop off of a lighter jack...

Phones and tvs work with a lighter jack too.

I don't use my inverter very much. It takes more energy to change your 12 volts into 110, then back down to the 5 volts your phone needs, than just pulling 5 volts off of your lighter jack.



For lights: I'm using 12 volt led truck running lights, which I got at Wal-Mart for $30.

They put off enough light, that I'm able to use two of them as grow lights; and they keep my medical marijuana growing through the winter.


I had a few inverters die and leave me in the dark without a phone, until I switched my house to 12 volts using lighter jacks...

12 volt led lights work in 110 lamps, with extension cords and power strips that are made for household appliances too.

My style of camping involves carrying the clothes on my back, a rain pancho and pancho liner blanket, a hammock, some salt and spices, a knife, and a few sources of fire.

I love camping in a tropical paradise, where I can find 100 mangos, get naked, and eat them in a stream, then pull 100 prawns out of the stream, put em on a grill, and eat them too.

I love camping where there's fresh spring water, wild figs, pigs, goats, coconuts, taro, breadfruit, bananas, etc., etc, and waterfalls to shower in.

To me, the perfect camping destination is a place where I can lay around in a hammock all year.

Hiking to a place where I'd need to pack a 4 season tent, food, water, fuel, oxygen tanks, plus 30 pounds of down clothing and bedding, and have to leave as soon as I get there...

That's just not me.

BREADFRUIT TREES

What Is Breadfruit?
One of the most important plants (known as “canoe plants”) brought to Hawai’i by the ancient voyaging Polynesians is the breadfruit tree. This beautiful tree played a major role in colonizing the Pacific and was a key staple food. For hundreds of years before western contact with Hawai’i this fruit tree, called ulu, was a large part of the cultural and spiritual life of ancient Hawaiians. Ancient Hawaiian breadfruit groves were so large that some were capable of sustaining around 75,000 people! These trees were also an important source of wood, craft materials and medicines. Today few of these trees remain in Hawai’i compared to ancient times.



BREADFRUIT TREE FACTS

Breadfruit trees are one of the highest yielding food plants known. A single tree can produce between 50 to 150 fruits per year (yield varies between wet and dry areas) and their round, oval or oblong fruits can weigh as much as 12 pounds!

Breadfruit trees can grow to a height of 85 ft and all parts of the tree yield a latex sap which is useful as a sealant such as for canoe caulking. It’s light sturdy timber was used for canoe outriggers and house construction.



The Many Uses Of Hawaiian Breadfruit Trees

This extremely versatile fruit can be prepared and eaten in all stages of development and maturity, ripe as a fruit or mature as a vegetable. Today mature fruits are used for most dishes due to the breadfruits potato-like texture.

Nutrition

Breadfruit is gluten free and packed with nutrients. It was one of several “super foods” in ancient times (along with taro & coconut) that enabled the Hawaiians to colonize the eight main Hawaiian islands with what may have been close to 1 million people!

Breadfruit is high in carbohydrates and a good source of antioxidants, calcium, carotenoids, copper, dietary fiber, energy, iron, magnesium, niacin, omega 3, omega 6, phosphorus, potassium, protein, thiamine, vitamin A and vitamin C. Breadfruit also contains some carotenoids and lutein which is not present in white rice or white potato. A ½ cup of breadfruit provides 25% of the RDA for fiber and 5 to 10% of the RDA for protein, magnesium and potassium. As the fruit ripens starches convert to sugars and the fruit softens to a custard like consistency. This sweet custard can be eaten raw.


Breadfruit Preparations & Recipes
Think of breadfruit as a tropical potato. It tastes fantastic mashed, in salads, made into french fries and chips and in countless other dishes where you can use potato – except it’s more nutritious than potatoes!

According to the National Breadfruit Institute of Hawai’i there are many ways to prepare mature breadfruit: steamed, boiled, fried, baked, or cooked in traditional ways in a fire.


BREADFRUIT: Uses, Side Effects, Interactions and Warnings - WebMD
WebMD › ingredientmono-1471 › bread...
Breadfruit is a tree. Breadfruit roots, leaves, and latex are used to make medicine. Breadfruit root and leaves are taken by mouth for arthritis, asthma, back pain, diabetes, fever, gout, high blood pressure, liver disease, and toothaches. Breadfruit latex is taken by mouth for diarrhea and stomach pain...

Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

RE: Farming

Yeah, I've been seeing Ali posting here for years; and I agree with you.

It's just that Hawaii is being bulldozed so fast; and our forests are full of things that don't live anywhere rules on earth...

But so many people come here, and clear every tree off of their land!

One woman was telling us... "Some day you'll be able to stand here (miles from the water, the middle of the rain forest) and see the ocean."

That was her vision for the rain forest that I love.

There aren't many people who are devoted to saving our forests; and now the ohia trees are dying off...

I believe they're dying; because they're sad.

I've seen people leave a few ohia's on their land, and they fall over, without the root system of the other trees to help support them.

Our soil isn't as healthy without our ohia trees. Just like in the Amazon, the soil is shallow, and when they cut down the natural trees, the soil washes away.
