I like your "sheep dog" thing. The wolves tell us what we want to hear and the sheeple don't think very hard about what's going on. We need way more sheep dogs.

I got banner ads for generators from Sam's Club. I've been looking at generators there.

Ever since I commented on this thread I've been bombarded with "dumpster" advertisements all over my pages here. It's either that or Lornas post on the dumpster locations here in Gainesville.

Don't know...but something triggered this as I have not done a search lately on dumpsters so the only thing I can figure is

"BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING US"

You have spyware on your computer.

I have been living here since September of 2014. I'm not worried at all.

This is getting way off topic.

Ummm. What were we talking about before? While camping with a friend last summer I learned that he uses a pop-up laundry hamper as his garbage container (with a liner sack, of course). Nice for camping, maybe not so much for full-time.

In my bus at present, which isn't full-time, we use a small laundry detergent bucket for the trash. It holds a regular plastic grocery sack nicely, has a lid we can use if necessary, and happened to be on hand in the shop as we prepared to depart on a trip two years ago..

For full-timing, especially if finding an appropriate place to drop the garbage is a hassle, maybe it's worth allocating some space to a trash compactor appliance. That at least might reduce the frequency of the hassle.

Please do a coal tutorial nat, I'm not even sure where one would get coal (pick it up off the train tracks??) but I'm interested in using it to supplement my firewood if it's safe. I also like the idea of having a coal scuttle. Any excuse for a scuttle.

I've often wondered what the environmental implications of burning vs. everything else we do with waste are. It's gotta go somewhere... especially in a heavily forested place I would imagine that burning is a smaller footprint, but I'm no expert.

Like I said, Marigold, we burn our trash here. Its so much better than burying it for the next generation to deal with, and it provides electricity. The emissions are very low. Lower than a dozen cars running all day.

The wolf is often the one making the rules and writing the directions. They bend and change the rules for their own personal gain, stepping on the throats of anyone to gain wealth.
The sheep dog is a rare breed. They think beond the norm, always pushing for more knowledge. After all, knowledge is the only way to protect the sheep from the wolf.

We live in a age of physiological warfare. You have to think beond the norm to make it in this world. If you didn't want to think beond, why are you on a skoolie conversion site?

I know how the waste treatment plants here work, I know nothing of where you live.

that sums it up pretty well. the democrats have created sheeple for the vote. in this country, there are few that can think for themselves, much less think outside the box.

since there are so many of these sheeple, why not use a few of em? after all, we paid for em! they are nothing but slaves funded with tax dollars.

that said. one way i will use them is for turd disposal. simply put turds in a retail shopping bag, tie knot in bag. place bag in shopping cart or leave in parking lot beside a new GM or Nissan vehicle. sheeple will see bag, think it is something free!!!!!!!!! when they get it home or inside their vehicle and tear open, they are the proud owners of my ****.

That isn't being a very good neighbor.
Thats jailhouse behavior man. Leaving feces lying in public places is wrong on so many levels. Kids know better than that.
Maybe this kind of behavior is why lots of parks and other places don't allow school bus conversions... It certainly doesn't help things in any way.
