Disaster Looms

Hey Team, After a long hiatus from crossing stuff off the list thanks to one scheduling failure after another spanning most of the country I finally feel back on track after today. I packed up the goods (mostly corn meal, sugar and a bucket) and met up with Dr. Tiki at an undisclosed location (well…

Is Horse Feed Really a Good Idea Anyway?

Is Horse Feed Really a Good Idea Anyway?

Hey Team, I’ve been reading quite a bit about moonshine lately since I’ve recently decided I don’t want to poison myself like so many ill-advised hillbillies before me.
