My Quest For Personal Sovereignty
Hello Steemit, it's been a while and you as well Partiko, because this is my first post here. Nice to meet you
My decision to return is simply because I believe you'll enjoy following along on my journey. This post has been published elsewhere, so only continue if this doesn't bother you.😀
Now for the Featured Content
My E-bike is nearly done. I just need to build a battery lock box for the front rack, which will house the batteries not in use to distribute the weight on my bike more evenly.
I've built three 36v 9ah 500w batteries myself and purchased another seven, 3 of which are 48v 10ah. The one's I built cost about the same as the purchased one's, but mine are built with top quality 18650's from Sony. I have no idea what brand the one's I purchased use, but I know it wasn't high quality Sony,LG or Panasonic or it would have been mentioned in the description and wasn't.
The 48v batteries will power my 36v controllers just fine and the extra power converts into an extra 3ah's of runtime for my 36v system. The only issue is that the power wire for the throttle cannot handle the extra voltage. I've corrected the problem and will detail it in a future blog.
My trailer is coming along and I plan to have it finished next week. The trailer is built from scratch with 100% repurposed materials. The only purchased items on the trailer will be the Solar Array. The array will be a 48v system and 528 watts.
The content I offer will consist of showing other's how to live minimally, off the land/grid, how to build and install battery system's, solar arrays, identifying and preparing edible plants, small game hunting/cleaning/ preparing, boondocking and how to find good free sites, the hardships and how they affect my psyche both good and bad, how to scavenge for just about any material you may need, photography, Vlogs, whatever other projects I tackle while stopping to help other's build their minimalist dream by finding those asking for help through Workaway.info and so much more.
I'll be using a Canon T7i 800D with Video Creator kit, my LG Fiesta, a Wingland Drone and a couple different cheap action camera's.
This is not just a hobby or an adventure, but a way of life. I'll be living 100% on the road traveling from one free campsite to another, going from state to state with no set direction or itinerary. I'm trying to live as free as possible, using little to no money while attempting to fully sustain my needs through the kindness of others and the environment.
Workaway is a resource where those in need of help, for whatever reason offer room and board in exchange for 25 hours of work a week on average. I will be picky choosing those I volunteer my time too in the hopes of give them maximum benefits from my help. The biggest reward will be the friendships gained.
I am a Jack of many trades like plumbing, basic electrical, carpentry, auto mechanic, some natural building experience, novice permaculture design and much more, some mentioned above, but my most useful skill is as a scavenger. I know where to find what's needed for most anything for free and am good at building tangible items from abstract materials and make a living doing so. My bike trailer is a simple example. I also know how to easily turn trash into cash. Recycling metals and electronics pays well enough for me to make a living.
(Of course Nietzsche will be accompanying me)
I hope you find this of interest and the quantity plus quality of interaction I receive from this post will tell me if this platform is a good home. I can't wait to hear what you think and maybe I'll be stopping by to give you a hand.
BE THE CHANGE MY FRIENDS AND PEERS!
